What Happens To Departed Loved Ones?
When a loved one dies and passes into the spirit realm, it’s quite common to wonder where they are actually going. And though life and love continue in various forms, people cannot help but speculate about if or when they will see their deceased companions again, as well as if those loved ones will still be interested and invested in the goings-on experienced by their living counterparts.
While Spirit Mediums can produce the most amazing insights into the other side, there is still a lot to learn about what happens after death. Indeed, the forms that people’s departed loved ones take in Spirit as they try to reconnect with those who are still on earth can be as different and varied as those individuals themselves.
Still, when it comes to deceased loved ones who actively communicate with their living cohorts, there seem to be four main categories that these spirits fall into.
Below, is a brief look at those categories, as well as some advice that can help you recognize your deceased loved ones and their messages:
1. They May Become VIP Spirit Guides
Your departed loved one may become a VIP in your spiritual guidance circle. Sometimes, this type of guide is an ancestral spirit, a person who mentored, understood, encouraged, and protected you in life. When they join your circle of guides, they usually take a prominent role. They are with and around you most of the time, and they subtly help you with many of your personal issues. They may connect with you in your dreams or through signs in the waking world, such as the usage of particular scents, visual cues, songs, and even birds and animals. And, of course, they can be reached through Psychic Mediums during readings.
Many ancestral spirits become “gatekeeper” guides that monitor which spirits are allowed to come through during mediumship sessions with you. Though they are sometimes referred to as “angels,” actual angels are a completely different species. Angels always remain angels, while guides are the spirits of those who once lived human lives on earth and may, in some cases, eventually return to earth in another incarnation.
2. They May Become “Topic” Guides
Your loved one may come to you during times of challenge, usually when you’re dealing with a specific type of issue — one that they probably helped you with while they were on earth! These are spirit guides who help you with things such as your love life, career path, health, or money challenges. There are even topic guides who focus on things like giving child-rearing or cooking advice. Most of the time, they only focus on one or two issues each, and as a general rule will show up only when you have a challenge in that specific area.
This type of guide could also be your dear teacher who is continuing to help you learn from the spirit realm. In some situations, they might even be a favorite manager or boss whose mentoring and encouragement helped you find success in your career.
3. They May Show Up As Members of the Animal Kingdom
Although spirits do not literally become animals, they do often take animal forms so that they can share messages of comfort, warning, or encouragement. Some common animal shapes that your departed loved one might take are dragonflies, birds, cats, and dogs, to name a few. Also, if a wild animal shows up in your dreams, that could also be a sign that you have received a visit from a spirit. Their messages are almost always positive and helpful.
4. They Occasionally Manifest As “Ghosts”
It is true that some spirits take a little longer to realize that they’ve transitioned. In these cases, they hang around the earthly plane a little longer than most others. These spirits are what some people call “ghosts,” and they actually inhabit their old houses and neighborhoods, spending time around familiar people and surroundings. They eventually cross over into higher spiritual realms, usually when they’re totally ready to let go of earth and continue along their soul’s journey.
How Do Your Departed Loved Ones Support You?
Maintaining spiritual contact with the people who are most valuable to you, even once they’ve passed on, can help you live a better life. The wisdom, love, and encouragement they bring through dreams, visions, and other spirit messages can be immeasurably helpful. They can even provide specific practical advice on random issues that you’re dealing with here on earth, such as where to move, who to marry, and where to focus your time and energy.
A thoroughly trained professional Psychic Medium can help you receive and interpret these messages clearly and helpfully, especially when you’re first learning to communicate with your departed loved ones.
Psychic Mediums Help You Make the Connection
Most Psychic Mediums develop their own favorite methods of connecting. That said, some commonalities generally include opening with some form of prayer or visualization, doing some deep breathing, focusing their eyes at a specific point in the room, and inviting the “sitter” (you) to take part in the process with them. That said, it’s okay for the sitter to simply relax. You can just maintain an open and expectant mood and let the Medium do the work.
Psychic Mediums let spirits come to them rather than dictating who comes through and how. This results in a reading that is tailored by the other side to be as helpful as possible for the person who is seeking a message.
