When someone moves away, we are forced to re-define the relationship, in order to keep it growing, blossoming and expanding in new ways, despite and through the difference.
We may learn how to use Skype, or communicate more via internet Social Media or start to become pen-pals. And if each party is committed to continuing the relationship, one or the other, may visit the respective home state of the other.
The less and less time we have to see someone face to face, the more creative, unique and different communication opportunities begin to emerge. Perhaps gifts are now sent, where they weren’t before. Or perhaps, more three way communication methods may be utilized, such as ‘hearing from a friend of a friend’, may begin to take place.
No matter what, when someone moves away, communication changes everything. And in order to keep the relationship alive, both parties must make an effort and a commitment to learning the new style of communication.
This is the same when your Loved One crosses over into Spirit. They’ve moved to a new place, a new world, across the globe. While you can visit them, in dream, in meditation or in the practice of astral travel, they can also visit you, and many do, simply, by showing up unexpectedly.
When someone crosses over, there’s a learning curve.
Not everyone who dies suddenly emerges on the Other Side with a complete understanding of how to operate fully and completely in their new Spirit-body, just as not everyone who travels abroad suddenly arrives speaking perfect, fluent and nuanced French, including all the regional slang.
When your Loved One crosses over, there may be a small lag time of learning and understanding of how to operate and communicate with you, as a Spirit.
This learning process takes a different amount of time for everyone who crosses, and thankfully, your Loved One, can enlist the help of other Spirits to help them out.
There are Spirit Coaches who Help Expedite the Learning Process
If you have other family or friends on the Other Side, people who have been there much longer and know the ropes already, simply request that they help your newly crossed Loved One in learning how to ‘be’ as a Spirit. They probably already are, of course, but it doesn’t hurt to send up the request.
While we are all originally Spirit and in crossing over, we return to our soul home base, there’s a time of adjustment for everyone, with any change or shift at all. Eventually, communicating and operating as Spirit will be natural for both you and them. But this takes time.
If you don’t hear from your Loved One through any of the usual signs and symbols that you might expect, immediately after crossing, it's because they’re still learning how to use them.
How can you help with their learning of the Spirit Communication Process?
- Give them time, patience and your encouragement as they get up the speed.
- Share with them, by speaking out loud or writing down, your preferred visitation methods. That way, they know which Spirit techniques are a priority to learn first. Here's a list of all the different kinds, to help you in choosing your preference.
- Learn as much as you can about all the ways that you can communicate with Spirit. Including how to sense them, receive signs, have visitation dreams, or hear them when they speak to you. This blog has many resources to help you learn - simply check out the categories on the right sidebar to begin!
In the mean time, let’s give our Loved Ones a round of applause.
It’s not easy to learn a new language.
