Signs, Synchronicity, and Energy
Welcome back to my Spiritual Awareness series. Today I’m going to talk about energies, and the signs we receive from lost loved ones.
We’ve all heard about the signs we’re always looking for – asking for ‘a sign’ to give us some sort of confirmation when having doubts about whether or not we should do something. We sometimes seek that validation as some kind of a spiritual confirmation to validate that we are on the right track or making a right decision. And then, there are tangible signs that lost loved ones leave for us.
The common items said to be signs left around for us can be anything from a feather or a coin, to hearing a special song randomly, reading something repeatedly on TV, or passing by a license plate that speaks to us. These are just a few to mention – you get the drift. There are also signs from nature, like a butterfly, dragonfly, or even birds that hover near us, leaving us a hello from beyond this earth.
No, a lost loved one didn’t physically play that song for us at that moment, or turn into that actual bird or butterfly, nor did they pop by and drop a coin or a feather from their pocket.
But how about the idea that a deejay was implanted with a thought to play a particular song at that exact moment we turned on that radio channel, or we randomly walked into a room and heard that special song, or that commercial ad on TV, leaving a message for us to pick up on. This is just one of the ways the universe and spirit use to send us messages. Spirit will often use nature as a means to send forth messages for us here on earth.
Energies can float freely anywhere in the universe. This is why spirits can change a channel on our TV, they can make the lights flicker, turn the power on or off, and even make us feel a sudden breeze when there is in fact, no wind, or fans around us. These are signs that an energy is around, calling our attention. Spirit is energy. Energy cannot be destroyed; it can only change form.
We are made up of energy, so it’s no surprise we can feel energetic vibes. Do you recall ever experiencing moments like when you are somewhere and the vibe is so bad in the room, the saying goes, “You could cut it with a knife?” Energy works with everything we do, like when we are among people vibrating high with positivity and it becomes contagious in that room, just as being around negativity can bring down a good mood. That’s because we can sense when energy is vibrating high. We feel it. We sense it. We are all energy stored in mass particle form and atoms. Life energy is referred to as ‘Chi’ in China, and ‘Prana’ in Sanskrit. Our bodies are really a vessel used to carry our soul on this earth. When we die, our energy is dispersed into the universe.
I am not a scientist, but just someone who has encountered spirit around me very many times throughout my life. The facts about how energy works is concrete with science. But despite the many who share their own experiences about near death experiences, and despite people like me who can confirm her many experiences with spirit and signs, not everybody is a believer. But to those open to believing, death is not the end of a soul. So, when I feel the energy from signs popping up for me as reminders that my beloved husband is always around me, I live in that comfort, because I couldn’t go on without believing so.
My husband is always around me. Although a recent visit to a Medium affirmed this for me, it was comforting, but I already knew this. But when she gave me specific intimate details of some personal things shared only between me and my husband, things that nobody but a fly on a wall could know, it was just more confirming – and heartening. I found it all comforting because she had confirmed what I knew in my own soul, that my husband is watching over me.
I have never come across so many dimes as I did while packing up our home and moving to my new solo place. Where there are butterflies, they always circle me. But the most prominent sign I’ve encountered several times since losing my husband, are dragonflies.
Dragonflies typically hang out near water. Once while visiting my husband’s grave, (not near any source of water), I remember a group of four or five of them suspended high in the sky, yet, visible to my eyes. They circled for almost fifteen minutes right above his grave, fluttering back and forth high above, and circling the same spot above, right over his grave, and not flying away for all that time. Another incidence was on my recent visit to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, a dragonfly visited me and didn’t move for half hour. Yes, I sat still as it circled me for a few minutes until it finally landed on the side of my knee. It never left my knee until I got up from my chair almost half hour later. The odd thing about dragonflies is that they are said to not typically land on people and considered a rare event if they do, and that they also have the ability to bite if they feel threatened. The Native Indians believe the dragonfly signifies transformation, healing, and good luck and refers to them as souls of the dead. This one didn’t bite me, nor did it leave me until I got up from the chair.

There are so many signs that correspond to messages from lost loved ones. There are all the usual signs, as mentioned above, but every person receiving messages from beyond will have their own special messages that relate distinctly to them and that person who has passed on – messages that pertain to something, some habit, some moment that you’ve shared with that person.
Does anyone reading today have an experience with messages or signs you’ve received from a lost loved one?
Below I’m sharing three videos that may explain a bit more for you on signs and energy.
What Happens to Energy When We Die?
In her new book, author Laura Lynne Jackson says you don’t need a psychic medium to see the signs around you.
This is a short clip from psychic medium, Matt Fraser, talking about signs from heaven. He’s one of my favorite mediums I listen too.
My thanks to Debby for another fascinating post on the spiritual side of our natures. I know she would love to hear from you.

One of the reviews for Fifteen First Times
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 8 February 2023
‘Fifteen First Times’ fully describes this short, entertaining read in D G Kaye’s inimitable open and honest style – no subject is too difficult to approach or describe.
As with some other reviewers, there were several experiences I didn’t relate to, but found Kaye’s explanations of them engaging and sometimes eye-opening. The one that amused me most was ‘From Blonde to Wrong’. I began experimenting with dying my own hair quite early in my teens, and also chose to go red – a colour that both my cousins have by nature, and I coveted. Unlike Kaye, my first foray into hair colouring was using henna, and I was pleased with the results, so I have continued to dye my own hair, and the only time I ever got it done at a salon was the one time it turned out so dark it was almost black and I hated it – just as happened to Kaye with her first home effort!
No matter how painful the memories of some of these ‘firsts’, Kaye does not shy away from sharing the depths of feelings she experienced, and still manages to highlight the humour that characterises her welcome positive approach to life. I’m sure everyone will find some ‘firsts’ applicable to them – well worth the read.
