Spirit Communication or Life?
One of the methods that spirit will use to communicate with those of us living on this side of the veil is through symbols—insects, birds, flowers, numbers, technology, appliances, etc. So how can you determine whether you’ve received a symbolic message from a loved one or you’re just experiencing life?
Nature “out of place?”
One of the symbols I associate with a grandmother of mine is ladybugs. I don’t recall how this came to be a symbol for her presence, but now, when I see a ladybug that is out of place, I know that she’s with me. The important phrase for you to read is “out of place”. So, if I see ladybugs in my garden, I just know that those insects are doing their duty and taking care of things. However, if I find a ladybug in my home or car or in some other place that seems “out of place”, especially if it’s repetitive, I know that it’s my grandmother. This can be further confirmed if the symbol is accompanied by a strong sense or intuitive knowing of my grandmother being near.
Technology and Electronic Malfunctions
Some people experience technology working improperly or broken appliances suddenly working or some other phenomena. In those cases, it’s easy for the person to identify that this is a symbolic message. When the alarm clock that no longer works starts ringing or the lamp near your bed turns itself on, you know that Spirit is trying to get your attention.
Investigation vs. Fear
Sometimes these attempts at communication can frighten the recipient of the gesture. Some people worry that a ghost is inhabiting their home or that some dark entity has invaded their space. Fear, like any other emotion, attracts more of the same. So I caution you not to be fearful, but rather investigate the phenomena. If you feel it is outside your realm of experience, you can retain someone to clear the energy in your home.
Wink and a Nod
For me, I love these little symbols that crop up in my dally life when I’m least expecting it. For me, it’s like having someone wink at me from across the room. I receive the message, but the crowd of people around me are oblivious to the message I’ve just received.
