Before we answer ‘can we communicate with spirits’, first find an answer to ‘why do we want to communicate with spirits?’ What troubles us so much that we need to resort to different media of communication with the dead, and experience some positive or some negative paranormal phenomena in our attempt? There may be many reasons, the most prominent one of which is the need to find solutions to the different problems that we face, because of the importance of the deceased in our lives. A lot of times, a certain someone is the guiding light in our lives, someone who helps us through trying times, who helps us decide what to do, and influences the decisions we take. When we are so dependent on someone, and that person suddenly leaves our life, getting over that dependence is something that takes a lot of effort. In another situation, there may be a particular feeling or desire that we failed to
communicate to the deceased when they were around. In such a case, doing so becomes very important to some of us, and what way do we have but to find some means of communicating with spirits and having our questions answered or our desires expressed?
Ways to Communicate with Spirits
In order to be able to communicate with spirits, it is essential that you as a human being keep your mind clutter-free, and your conscience clear. A lot of people with psychic abilities believe that spirits are always present around us, it is only a matter of having heightened senses to be able to sense their presence. Now a heightened state of mind is something that cannot be achieved easily. It takes a lot of effort, practice and patience to be able to do so, so that you can even think of effectively communicating with spirits. Your vision, your hearing abilities, and a sense of knowledge and recognition of the presence of an unnatural being around you, are all the senses you will have to work on developing in your endeavor to communicate with spirits. The ways in which you can do so have been enlisted here.
•First, believe that such a process is possible. It is faith that keeps the world going, and as long as you believe in absolutely anything you want to do, know that it is going to be possible with a little effort.
•Then, ensure that your desire to communicate with a spirit is genuine. This is not something you want to do just for fun. You may have your own reasons to communicate with a spirit, but fun cannot be it.
•Starting with a small amount of meditation on a daily basis, and increasing the amount you meditate on a daily basis will help you slowly keep your mind free of stress and other things that plague it. In fact, with regular meditation, you will be able to effectively zone your mind out of the present, and use it to sense the presence of anything unnatural around you.
•Wear comfortable clothing so that you are not distracted. Light clothes and colors that keep the mind cool and calm are essential in this endeavor.
•Eat fresh, live and healthy food so that you do not feel worn out or weak. Eating fresh food keeps the mind active and alert and is a great way of attaining the power to communicate with spirits.
As mentioned earlier, this is a process that will take a long time. If you have the patience and the will to be able to really do it, there is nothing that can stop you or cause failure in this process. Now that you have developed these heightened senses, put out your queries into the universe. The best way to do so is write down your questions that are directed to the deceased you want to communicate with. You will then be able to receive communication from them through various media.
With the methods of developing heightened senses so as to learn how to communicate with the dead, let’s now take a look at some of the ways in which you can communicate with a spirit, and vice versa. When you look at the ways in which a spirit tries to communicate with you, you will understand why developing the aforementioned traits is absolutely necessary.
•Dream Visitations: As you send out the signal of wanting to communicate with a spirit, you may experience a dream visitation by the deceased. Here, your queries about anything pertaining to the spirit may be answered. The experience of communicating with spirits in dreams may seem very real to you. To understand that the dream was indeed a method of spirit communication and not simply a result of your constant thoughts on this subject, keep in mind that it should have a logical sequence, it should be vivid, and it should leave behind some emotion, whether negative such as confusion, or positive such as happiness.
•Recurring Coincidences: If you are party to a similar situation time and again, chances are, a spirit is trying to communicate with you through subliminal messages. This is why you need to be alert and have presence of mind. Also, understanding the symbolism of a situation will help you decipher what the spirit is trying to say.
•(Inner) Voices: Many a times, as a response to your query or questions, you may be able to find the answer yourself. You may find an inner voice giving you all the answers you desire. This could be because of the presence of a spirit that is attempting to communicate with you. On the other hand, many a times, you may find the answer from someone you are speaking to, someone who may be least likely to give you the answer, but will do so as the spirit uses another person as a medium of communication.
•Automatic Writing: Automatic writing experiences by contacting spirits have been seen by many in their endeavor to communicate with the deceased. In such a case, as an answer to your questions, spirits take over the hand and start writing the answer to you. You may be in a trance and not realize what exactly is happening, but upon exiting that trance, you will find the answers to your questions by means of automatic writing.
•Signs and Symbols: Just like a recurring situation, spirits may use different signs and symbols to communicate with you. For instance, if you have a question in mind, you may simply open up a book while wandering at a book store, and find the answer written before you. Again, you need to be alert and know that this is a sign from the deceased, to let you know that they are watching over you, and are there to help you find a solution to your problems.
A lot of people use other media such as an Ouija board, perform seances, mirror gazing, etc. to be able to communicate with spirits. While a lot of people have been successful in doing so, there are instances when these processes have gone wrong. To prevent such an occurrence, be patient and develop the above mentioned methods of communicating with spirits for some effective results. However, sometimes, even these methods may not work, because a lot of psychics believe that spirits do not communicate with their loved ones in an attempt to reduce their sorrow and grief. You may also resort to contacting someone who will serve as a medium of communicating with your deceased loved ones. Such people have psychic powers, and the aforementioned traits, that makes them an effective means of communication with the dead.
Finally, always know that death and dying is inevitable, and that we all have to face the loss of a loved one at some point in time. Resort to communicating with spirits of your loved ones only when it is very necessary. Even spirits feel disturbed when we are making countless endeavors to get in touch with them. Spirits also feel your pain and grief, which is why sometimes they may refuse to communicate with you. Even so, don’t give up. Keep your mind open, and your heart free of negativity so as to be able to contact your deceased loved ones and allow them to make their presence felt in your life.
