My mother passed away nearly 30 years ago, but her spirit and love have survived to this day. You might wonder how I can be so sure of this. It’s because I see “signs” from her on a regular basis. They’re known as “signs from Heaven,” and they’re available to anyone willing to recognize them.
Once you’re open to believing in these signs and you acknowledge them, you’ll receive even more! And eventually, you’ll receive signs on a consistent basis. Although these signs have virtually become a part of my day-to-day existence, I’m still constantly amazed at how easily not only my mother, but also my father and even my beloved pets are able to connect with me!
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, then you know that renowned British medium, Lisa Williams, brought my mom through in 2008, and you also know that was a pivotal point in my spiritual awakening process. However, I received my first “sign” from my mom in 2003 at a very low point in my life. I was depressed, under a huge amount of stress, angry at the world, and unhappy with my life. I had reached a point of emotional breakdown, and I yearned to have my mom there one more time to comfort me with her words of wisdom and a big hug. I cried and told my mom out loud how much I missed her and how I wished she was there with me.
During this time, I was guided to watch a TV show called “Crossing Over.” The show was hosted by another famous psychic medium named John Edward who would deliver messages to audience members from their loved ones. I found great solace in watching the audience members receive comfort and closure. One day, after one of the episodes, I decided to look at an old family photo album. I was reminiscing about my childhood as I looked at photos of birthday parties and other wonderful times spent with my parents. These memories made me feel better and also made me feel closer to my parents, especially my mom.
Something interesting happened when I reached over to put the album away. A photo of my mom fell out of the album upright on the floor, and there she was smiling up at me! I thought this is no coincidence! After the initial shock wore off, I felt the warmth of her presence, and I was completely uplifted! I knew it was my mom letting me know that she was there with me and that everything was going to be okay. I decided to put her photo in a frame immediately to preserve the moment.
I chose to put her photo in a frame on top of a poem by Goethe which read: “This is the true measure of love, when we believe that we alone can love, that no one could ever have loved so before us, and that no one will ever love in the same way after us.” It was perfect! The colors matched those in the photo, and it was all about love. As I placed the photo under the first appearance of the word “love” and turned the frame over to move the closures into place, the photo slipped down to the next line.
As I was about to move the photo back to the line above, I was compelled to read it: “This is the true measure of love, when we believe.” It was like the word BELIEVE jumped out at me! I got the chills, and I knew instantly it was my mom’s way of saying thank you for believing I’m still here and for knowing that I love you. I started crying tears of joy knowing that I had a genuine connection with my mom. She was spiritually giving me that big hug and comforting me. This was a significant step on the road to my emotional recovery. From that moment on, I knew I wasn’t alone, I felt empowered, and I was inspired to learn more about what I had experienced.
I started researching after-death communication, or ADC, which is when a deceased loved one makes direct and spontaneous contact without the use of a psychic medium. One of the first books I came across was Hello From Heaven by Bill and Judy Guggenheim. The Guggenheims are researchers who interviewed 2,000 people who had experienced ADCs, and their book contains many of those stories. At the time of their studies in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, the Guggenheims estimated that approximately 60 million Americans had experienced ADCs. This fascinating book started me on my quest for more answers about life after death.
I guess you could say that acknowledging my mom’s first “sign” was a baby step toward my “spiritual awakening.” It was only after Lisa Williams validated my mom’s presence in 2008 that my mom really started to come through by leaps and bounds. She started showing me her name, my childhood nickname, her birthdate, her city of birth, the word “mom,” butterflies, and she even visited me in a very vivid dream where she lovingly extended her hand to me and smiled her beautiful smile. I’m so grateful for these wonderful signs that prove my mother is still with me and that her love is eternal.
With love, light, and angel blessings,
