We hope to dispel these ten proof life after death myths to help those who have had after death communication experiences be at peace with the signs they received.
1. After death communications (ADCs) never occur spontaneously.
After death communications do occur most frequently without intervention from the person who is having the experience.
They can occur at all times of the day or night. While some people may use psychics or Ouija boards, all of our responses in our book occurred without the use of such things.
Some people report dreams that are very vivid and real, others have experiences while doing everyday things like driving, cleaning the house, or lying in bed watching television.
2. ADCs only occur in dreams.
While people do have vivid dreams in which the deceased loved one appears to them, many people have auditory experiences (where the deceased speaks to them and they hear their voice), they see their deceased loved one, they smell a favorite cologne or flower the deceased wore or liked, or they sense a peaceful presence in their house or around them and they intuitively know it is their deceased loved one.
3. It’s all in your head.
With experiences that occur without warning, it’s definitely not just an illusion or all in your head. Our deceased friends and loved ones want us to know that they are still with us. They are still watching over us, and they have not left our sides.
They want us to know that their love for us is as strong in the afterlife as it was when they were with us here on earth.
4. You should never tell anyone.
Why not? You should share your experience as it may help other people to express their experiences, too. Many people are afraid to tell people for fear people may not believe them. Unfortunately, many people have had experiences with after death communication from people they love but fear speaking up for fear of being ridiculed.
It’s a gift to know that your loved one is watching over you. Don’t be afraid to share your experience with others for they may have had one, too, but were too afraid to tell anyone.
5. You won’t recognize the signs.
You may think you won’t know when a loved one has made contact, but you usually will have no doubt once you have an experience.
Most people just know it is their deceased friend or loved one. Most people have a sense of extreme peace once the experience is over, and most people say it lessens their fear of death.
6. Your loved one isn’t watching over you.
Your beloved is, indeed, watching over you. Death does not destroy the bond we have with those we love. They love us more in the afterlife as the bonds of anxiety and fear have been loosened and are more powerful and strong in Heaven than they were on earth.
Just because we cannot see our loved ones who have passed on does not mean they have forgotten us. Quite the opposite, they look at us with loving eyes and will stay by our sides until we meet them again.
7. Death destroys love.
Absolutely not. What we love on earth we love from Heaven. Death strengthens loving bonds. Our loved ones did not choose to leave us. They were called home.
They miss us just as much as we miss them. The difference is, they can see us; we cannot see them. Love is a powerful bond that death can never break. They love us more, want us to be happy, and long for the day when we will be together again.
8. It’s a scary experience.
While we can’t speak for experiences with psychics or ouija boards, all respondents to our request for stories for our book were not scared at all. Their experiences were peaceful and very loving.
It gave them reassurance that their loved ones were okay, that they weren’t suffering anymore, and gave them extreme peace knowing that they weren’t alone.
For many, it made them fear death less, and look to a future time where they would be reunited with their loved ones.
9. It only happens a few years after someone dies.
A lot of experiences happen right after a loved one passes on. They want to reassure their loved ones left behind that they are okay, that they are not in pain anymore, and that the survivors should go one with their lives and not grieve for them.
Some experiences occur months later, perhaps when the loved one has been purified and is on the way to a permanent life in Heaven. They want their loved ones to not worry about them, and want them to know they are still by their sides and will continue to watch over them and guide them.
Still others occur years later as a reassurance that they are still with the ones left behind. While some experiences occur because our deceased loved ones need to relay a message to us or need to intercede directly with us.
10. You get one communication and never any more.
Yes, some people may just get one reassuring communication while other people can have many occurrences in a row or spaced out months or years apart.
Know that your friends and loved ones who have passed on are still with you. If you need them, you can call to them and they will give you love and support until it’s time for a never ending meeting where you will be together again.
