In this after-death communication, after Elisa loses her beloved Eric, she asks him for the comfort of a sign, specifically roses, since he had never given them to her while he was in the physical dimension. Not only did hear her, he sent her roses in three different ways.
“Last week, I asked my loved one for a sign that all was good between us – I asked for a specific sign – flowers. More specifically, roses. He never sent me flowers, it was just him, but he never forgot birthdays or Christmases. In fact, he sent a quote and a birthday wish to any of his staff whose birthday he had knowledge of! That was the kind of guy he was.”
“Back to my sign. Only a while ago – I thought of if and how my roses will come. Then, strangely, I decided to do a bit of tidying up after dinner. Normally, after dinner, I just take rest for a bit. So I took my clothes out and started folding them nicely and putting them back. THEN, as I opened up a black nighty that I wore when we were together, I saw them so clearly, my vision so focused on them because right there on the nighty, popping out at me were my ROSES! I’ve always known there are flowers on the nighty – when I bought them, I knew they were roses but I had forgotten all about them even though I put it on, took it off, washed it, etc.”
“It was as if he prompted me to look, LOOK, your roses! I was so happy and so relieved for the sign. I don’t doubt that it is. I feel a sense of peace with this sign. I’ve attached a picture.”
Then, there was this other sign, featuring roses. I’ve only had one dream so far of Eric. Truth be known, I miss his presence, which I have not felt since he crossed over. I talk to him, especially on my drive to and from work about things and asked him for signs – a rose (again) to tell me that I am forgiven for my humanness and that he did care for me while he was here. And… coins or feathers please, to show he’s still with me in spirit. Guess what? Yesterday, my Reiki master, sent me a text to confirm my Reiki session. And there… at the end of the text was a ROSE icon! Coincidence or sign??”
“I asked her about it – she said she normally sends an icon with her name – a heart or a smile or something else but, “I thought you might like a rose.” she said. :)”
“Also, when was asking for the rose, a song would play on the radio for a few days every day. It was Bruno Mars, “When I Was Your Man.” It wasn’t our song, but the lyrics hit me. You see, I always wished he gave me flowers, but he said he couldn’t because of the circumstances. I loved flowers and I wished for that every birthday. This song just played on the radio for days and it was in my head. So I googled the lyrics and here’s part of it.”
My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, ohh…
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes
It all just sounds like oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should’ve bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should’ve gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
‘Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man
Although it hurts
I’ll be the first to say that I was wrong
Oh, I know I’m probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know
I hope he buys you flowers
I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours
When he has the chance
Take you to every party
‘Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man.
Commentary- Elisa always wanted some roses from her beloved, Eric. Then one day… after his passing… she finally received them. But not just once, on many different occasions, showing her that Eric was listening to her as she talked to him while driving to and fro from work. He showed her that he watches over her, and he does love Elisa very much. I’m glad Elisa was able to, not only have these experiences, but even notice them in the first place!
It’s funny how signs can be, many times, right before our eyes… but we still do not see. Perhaps it is the common part of us that doesn’t. What does see the spiritual is the extraordinary side of us. And… if only we would learn to listen more to that side, we would find that our loved ones have not gone far. They are with us in ways the common part of us can’t even begin to fully understand.
Songs are other ways through which our loved ones attempt to reach us. It could be a repeating song; like one that finally registers in your head because you are wondering why it is playing so much. Or maybe it just takes once, and it is like the song is speaking directly to you. These are just two examples of ways songs that are after-death communications can reach and affect us. But when they happen, it causes us to pause inside a space of presence, where we are connected for… however briefly and reminded that our loved one is sending us their messages of love.
Also, an unknowing person can be influenced to send a sign your way from a loved one who has passed, as well. Take for example Elisa’s Reiki teacher who changed her very signature to include a rose, only because she thought Elisa would like one. She sure would! How could she know that her thoughts were influenced by Eric, the love of Elisa’s life? For… she didn’t even know him.
However our loved ones reach us, it is always amazing that they even can. For our world and theirs seem to be eons apart. But as we see, they are not. They are only thinly divided by a simple veil. A veil, that with practice and patience can be drawn away to reveal just how close we are to heaven, and the loved ones we thought we had lost. They are not lost, they are close, but with this veil… it is sometimes hard to know they are even there. So close…
So very close to us…
So very, very close to us, they are.
