Spiritual Guidance

In this after-death communication, Bonnie receives validation that her departed father watches over his family… even still.

Bonnie writes:
“I believe in life after death 100%. My dad once gave me a message in my dream to bail my son, Robert, out of jail who was in lockup for driving without a license. And sure enough… when I woke up, there was a message saying to come & bail my son out from Fairfax County lockup. This message was left two o’clock in the morning when I was asleep. My dad was very close to my son and me. Our parents watch over us.”

Commentary- Our departed loved ones watch over us from beyond, even when we think they might be doing something else. Their love, care and concern for us does not diminish, even if we think they are far removed from us. This is clear from Bonnie’s example.

There are times when our departed loved ones intervene in our lives to give us guidance. Sometimes it’s obvious guidance, as in Bonnie’s dream, and sometimes their guidance occurs as subtle- like a fleeting thought or feeling of what to say or do. There are even times when their guidance to us seems to be a little more on the non-existent side. But that’s when they are especially stealthy in our lives!

More often than not though, unless there is a really good reason for it, our departed loved ones sit silently as they witness our lives. The reason being… our lives are ours to live, not anyone else’s.

Even though we are loved and watched over from beyond, and our guides and angels may desperately want to help us out, from their vantage point, there are choices that are ours alone to make, as well as, consequences that are ours alone to realize. If we would ever have the opportunity to learn and grow into the best and wisest possibility of ourselves in this Earthly school, it is imperative that we realize that there is an actual connection between our actions and the consequences that follow. 

Bonnie received some amazing benefits from this dream experience. Bonnie received personal and direct validation of an afterlife and that her beloved father was still aware and present in the lives of those he loves. Bonnie’s father demonstrated that-

  1. He did absolutely know about his Grandson’s arrest in real time, and did visit her in her dream to inform her of her son’s misfortune, And…
  2. This experience was all verified by the 2 o’clock am voice mail message about her son’s actual incarceration. So, in other words… Bonnie didn’t just imagine this in her dream.

Bonnie’s experience also tells me that this dream/voice message combination was actually a message for Bonnie to know that she has not been left alone in the world without spiritual guidance, as there are always those who quietly watch over us from a higher place. It also tells me that bailing her son out of jail happened for a very good reason. So what was the reason?

Bonnie was told by her father that Robert was in trouble and she was directed to do something about it. Not that she wouldn’t have done this on her own, I know she would have because she told me she would have done exactly that. This made me think, If we look in another place we can begin to see the clear purpose of his visit to her.

Although we might think otherwise, sometimes the spiritual guidance we receive that we think is for us… is not exclusively for us. Sometimes this guidance is for others, as well. In this case, Robert. And perhaps… even to some reading this now.

Five years have passed since this distressing night for this family. It is only with the perspective of time that the big picture appears, along with an understanding of the urgency and wisdom of that night. You see, Bonnie and her son, Robert, were very close to Grandpa while he was still living. After his passing, Robert started to make some poor choices. And those choices threatened the trajectory  of Robert’s path in life. When Grandpa saw that Robert was behaving beneath himself, he knew he had to intervene for Robert’s sake.

Although Grandpa’s visit did benefit Bonnie so very much, Grandpa’s focus was mostly on Robert. The magic for him was knowing that Bonnie would relate the whole experience to Robert and in turn… Robert would be affected in a good way. 

Although Grandpa could no longer be seen in this realm, Grandpa’s bond of love with his daughter and grandson remained unbroken as the love between the living and the dead (who are also living), never ceases. Grandpa was expressing that love to both Bonnie and Robert as he successfully straightened out something that was going awry. Since that time, Robert has indeed straightened out and is on his proper path in life. Grandpa’s guidance intervention was successful!

We all do the best we can in life, and of course, it is nice to get spiritual guidance wherever we can… from our departed loved ones, a Divine messenger, a hunch, a dream or intuition. But when we have received a spiritual guidance intervention that we are especially aware of… it is a special gift that validates to us that we are not walking this world alone. Our departed loved ones, who love us dearly… really are still with us, loving us… and guiding us from beyond.

Life’s Unusual Circumstances

When Elisa and Nancy separately make investments in the same stock, at around the same time, Elisa suspects that Eric is guiding them from beyond.

Elisa writes:
“I dreamt of Eric last night, after so long. It was in an office setting, but not my old office. When I arrived, I saw that he was in his office and I went to mine, waiting for him to call, as I saw that he was busy writing. But he looked at me and his face was so clear and vivid.”

“Then, he came to my office, kissed my head and left.”

“About 10 days ago, I made some investments in two places. Then, on sms, Nancy told me she also made investments in those same two places!”

“We met up two days ago to attend an investment talk and she said she dreamt of him. She was very happy and so was I, for her.”

“I think he was behind the investments, guiding us. The timing, the same investments. He was into investments and also a top accountant, too. And both of us dreaming of him at about the same time? He is still with us. Nancy and I both followed our gut instinct (or Eric’s prompting) and put our money in those two investments without each of us telling the other.”

“I am so happy. I was wondering why I had nada (no communication) from him for quite a while. I won’t question anymore.”

“I told Nancy about my dream, she said he kissed her too, before he left. He really does still watch over us both. Even in my dream, I remember how excited I felt at seeing him. Wow!”

“Even though Nancy still does not know about he and I, Eric once said, “a man can love two women equally… that is the nature of a man.” Of course it is not something a woman wants to hear but when he was with me, I forgot all that.”

Commentary- When Elisa saw Eric in her dream, it was in the context of an office setting they once shared, meaning… something familiar and that things haven’t changed much as their business together is still being conducted, even if it is from a heavenly office setting where Eric has a greater perspective. 

Eric’s break from his business to affectionately kiss Elisa and Nancy on the head in their perspective dreams, symbolizes acknowledgement- that he sees them, cares for them, and has their best interests in mind, as he continues to labor from beyond for those he loves.

Having the strong provider instinct that Eric always had in life, he wants his loved ones to do well. Appearing in both dreams, he wanted his two ladies to know that he is still active in their lives and influencing them from the other side. Hearing Nancy’s dream and investment experience was another validation that Eric was involved behind the scenes.

If you read, Grieving in Secret, you know that both Elisa and Nancy, unbeknownst to each other, were girlfriends to Eric, a married man. Life’s unusual  circumstances can seem strange at times- what happens, why things happen the way they do, what is there for us to learn, and how we will or won’t grow from it all. Although some people reading about this may have opinions about the circumstances of this situation, it is unwise for us to think we know better as to what and how this was supposed to happen, and what there was to learn and grow from, as all this leads us on our pathway in life.

Eric did tell Elisa that he was capable of loving more than one woman at a time. Apparently… he did and still does as he continues to take care of them and those he left behind. Good for them.

But despite the gift of insider-trading that Eric has helped his loved ones with, one of the greater gifts he has left behind for Elisa and Nancy is the gift of each other. Supporting each other in their shared loss has caused them to become best friends now, which, by itself, almost qualifies as a miracle. Elisa and Nancy are going on vacations together now. They have booked their first holiday for the upcoming new year.

Now, Elisa describes her loss as bittersweet, but healing as opposed to the excruciating pain from before. Life can be strange. You can never know what will happen, what there is to learn from life’s unusual circumstances, how you will grow and where your path may lead from there.

Bridgette’s Orbs

From her video camera, Bridgette catches this amazing show of orbs in her home. Look at the many sizes and watch how they move in unpredictable directions. 

Commentary- Bridgette has a knack for capturing orbs on video. Many times, it is her dogs that alert her that something other-worldly is present, then she runs the video cam. Sometimes she just runs the video cam, like in this example, to see what she can see. This time, she hit the jackpot. There are many different sized orbs, in varying colors, and moving at will in the direction of their choosing. Very interesting. Continue reading

Flies Are People Too!

On the anniversary of her birthday, a departed Grandma visits her surprised but delighted family in this after-death communication, in a very unusual way.

Donna writes:
“Recently, my son took his little sister and girlfriend to my mom’s grave – it was her birthday. I had to take my other son to the doctor, which took longer than expected, so I couldn’t get to the cemetery. As they were ready to leave the cemetery, my daughter started to cry for her grandma. Then, all of the sudden, a big fly landed on Grandma’s headstone and just sat there! My son started talking to it as it was my mom! They were able to touch it and it didn’t fly away.” Continue reading

On the day of Michel’s memorial of spreading his ashes in the forest in France, Joanna wonders how her beloved husband would give her a sign.

Joanna writes:
“We had just finished spreading Michel’s ashes in the woods at the same tree in France where Michel’s brothers ashes are. I had been asking for a sign from Michel that day but had no idea what he could scare up in the middle of the forest. But he delivered!” Continue reading

Dustin’s Batting a Thousand

Dustin’s ‘batting a thousand’ in the after-death communication and sign department, as he makes those he regularly visits smile. 

Pat writes:
“Dustin showed up the other day. I have been taking my neighbor, Lori, to see her hubby everyday at a rehab place. I have made friends with some of the residents there. I was looking for a hat to give Stevie, a 33-year-old man in a wheel chair who can’t talk or write. For some reason we have become friends and he follows me around like at puppy dog.”

“Anyways, I went through all of Dustin’s hat’s looking for a red baseball hat…the Red Sox. I Did not find one, so was looking for a green Celtic hat that I knew he had. It just was not around. So, I put a navy Red Sox hat on a shelf to take the next day. When I got up the next morning, there was the green Celtic hat on the shelf and the Red Sox was on the floor. It was NOT there the night before! So I asked Dustin…do you want me to give Stevie the green one? Is that what you are telling me? I took both hats to the nursing home. And yep…Stevie picked the green one.” Continue reading

Heavenly Signs

When Liz gets an after-death communication from her father to reveal his presence, she usually sees it in the sky.

Cross in the sky

Cross in the sky

Liz writes:
“My partner and I were on holiday. On our last afternoon we were having a few drinks in a pub and when I looked into the sky, I saw a cloud formation in the shape of a cross. To be perfectly honest, I was thinking nothing profound. Although I do spend a lot of time thinking about my Dad, and talking to God, at this moment we were just sitting there.”

“But this time, I was quick enough to take a picture, unlike the last time. My partner saw it too, unlike the last time. I believe it was something, but why, who, what?” Continue reading

Angels of Heaven and Earth

When Amy looks at her childhood Bible, after 40 years, she realizes that one of her deceased ‘Air Force Dads’ has watched over her for years.

Amy writes:



“Last Memorial Day weekend, I had been thinking about all of my Air Force Dads, including my own Dad. In military life, you make fast friends and everyone is close. Several of the men that my dad flew with are like second fathers to me.”

“Captain Carl Hunt was on my mind that weekend. I had been thinking of him as the day approached. Carl died before I ever met him. He died in a training accident in 1959 when a Canadian F-102 collided with the B47 he was in.” Continue reading

Eclipsing Life

As the moon passed over the sun in August’s eclipse, my cousin, Craig, peacefully eclipsed this life.

Throughout his adult life, my cousin, Craig, had his share of health issues, stemming from Cancer, to Lyme’s disease, to Multiple Sclerosis. Being a Scientist, whether it was a macrobiotic diet or something else he tried, he always found ways to either heal, or at least keep these diseases at bay. But, later on in his life, Craig came to experience complications from some of these debilitating diseases that left him struggling and unable to overcome.

It was February of 2017 when things took a turn for the worse. Craig came down with an infection that he couldn’t shake. The writing was on the wall. His loved ones knew his inevitable passing was closing in on both, him and them. Continue reading

Death… Our Greatest Adventure Yet!

Although 80 miles away, Jo experiences the final moments of her father’s transition from life to death in an extraordinary send off.

Jo writes: “On the night of 29 September 2013, I was asleep in my bed in north London (England), and my father was over 80 miles distant, in a dementia nursing home on the south coast.  I was jolted awake at around 1:30am, and sat up in the darkness.  A tremendous, intense, unworldly, rushing energy had filled the room.  I couldn’t see it, but I could sense it, and it was ‘sparkling’.  “Dad!” I exclaimed.  I knew it was him.  And I knew that he was dying, and that had come to me to help him push over.  And somehow I knew what he needed, and what I had to do.  I concentrated all my energy, and wished him all the peace and love and energy that I had in me – and forgiveness – and it felt both personal and universal.  I do not know how long this went on for as time stood still.  And then I lay back down and I looked through the portal in the back of my eyes* and I saw a vision of the light – that clichéd image – a giant door-shaped hole in the darkness, and silhouetted against it were countless figures, outlined by the light, all slowly streaming toward it.  And I felt very great peace, and I drifted from this vision back into sleep.” Continue reading

Shedding a Tear

As Shenique and her son say goodbye to their beloved husband and father at his viewing, he says goodbye back to them in the most unexpected way.

Shenique writes:
“Have you ever heard of a dead man crying for real? Well, it has been 8 years since my husband was killed. At his viewing, when my son and I said our last goodbyes, a tear came from my husband’s left eye. It was clear as day! Would you happen to know the meaning or what he was telling us?”

Commentary- Although it would seem unusual for a tear to fall from a departed loved one’s eye, stranger things have happened. The tear drop is a symbol of emotional expression. In this case, some messages of expression could be, “I’m sad my life ended so soon.” “This wasn’t supposed to happen this way.”  “I’m sorry you will have to go through the pain of this.” “I’m Sorry to Leave You.” “I’ll miss you and the life we had together, dearly.” and ” Goodbye for now.” Continue reading

Music As a Medium

Music is a common message medium from beyond. As Kathy looks for a sign, she receives these after-death transmissions from her beloved husband, Rich.

Kathy writes:
“In October of 2016 I was taking a class offered by Jade on “Becoming Your Own Medium”. The course was on a Friday night via conference call. I was sitting in bed with candles, phone, and ready for the class call. I remember one of the class participants saying that once in awhile she would ask for a sign from her loved one. So I thought, why not, and asked Rich, my deceased husband, to join us, as I had not received a sign in awhile. I fell asleep during the end of the class hypnosis.” Continue reading

Feathers From Our Angels

Three different women each receive the sign of a feather from the angel they love, who loves them too, and is watching over them from beyond. 

Sanjita writes:

Sanjita's Feather

Sanjita’s Feather

“Early on one Sunday morning, I found a little feather where I take shower everyday. It looks so awkward for the feather to be there because I live alone in my house. Secondly, the bathroom doesn’t have a window. Thirdly, the bathroom door is always closed after I use it and this is my first time seeing a little feather sticking on the bathroom wall.”

“The day before this happened, I was thinking about and talking to my departed best friend, Sadgunnan, because for so long there was no contact. I got busy with life and also, was traveling. As I spoke, I told him that I’m not sure where he is. Deep in my heart I was thinking if there is another moment, I wish I can see him or be with him just for a little while. I knew I was missing him and I told him to show me some signs that if he’s still around me. Usually he will come in my dreams, but to my surprise I saw a tiny feather at the bathroom the next morning. It’s impossible for any birds to fly in because there is no window in the bathroom.”

Spirit Hugs

Have you ever felt an actual spirit hug before? Ann sure did in this beautiful after-death communication from Rebecca, Ann’s beloved sister, from beyond.

Ann writes:
“My sister, Rebecca, died a horrific, heart-wrenching death at age 49. I’m an ICU nurse and understand death very well. However, it was how she died that was just killing me. I think part of my desire to continue to hear from Rebecca is that her death was the result of an unsuccessful suicide attempt in which her mouth and teeth were blown off. The failed attempt left Rebecca and her family to live with the aftermath of her choice for the next 6 months until Rebecca’s eventual passing.”

“What happened was so terrible and left Rebecca quite disfigured. After seeing her photo, I’m sure you will get it. She was beautiful. I still cannot think about Rebecca without thinking about how horrid and unsettling her death was.” Continue reading

Soul Mates

Lee loses her closest friend and soul mate, Mike, through suicide. However, despite her great loss, Lee is comforted to know that they are still connected.

Lee writes:
“I had only one friend I was very close to growing up. The way we met made me know right from the start that he was going to be important to me.”

“The night before I met Mike, I felt done, and just couldn’t go on anymore. I talked myself down and told myself to go one more day, that maybe it would get better. The next day was the school dance. I walked into the cafeteria to get a drink and everything in the room stopped. At the time it really freaked me out. I couldn’t hear anything… everything had just stopped! I looked across the room and there he was waving to me. We didn’t say a word to each other; no names, nothing until the next day. We both talked about how everything had stopped and talked about how weird it all was. We were inseparable from that point on. We were very close without trying.” Continue reading
