How Long Does It Take To sense a Loved One After They Cross Over?
When someone moves away, we are forced to re-define the relationship, to keep it growing, blossoming and expanding in new ways, despite and through the difference.
We may learn how to use skype, or start to communicate more via internet social media or we become pen-pals. 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.
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.
When someone transitions, they move to a new place, a new world, where they exist everywhere.
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.
But when someone crosses over, there’s a learning curve.
Not all who transition to the Spirit World suddenly emerge on the Other Side with a complete understanding of how to operate fully in their new Spirit-body. It can take some time for the Spirit person or pet adjust and adapt.
Just as not everyone who travels abroad suddenly arrives speaking perfect, fluent and nuanced French, it takes some time to work out the kinks.
So 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 likely because they’re still learning how to use them.
How can you help them 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 and another list of some 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 - check the links below. There's also an eCourse when you join The Membership Program, called Talking to Spirits, which can assist you in learning the ropes. When you purchase the eBook, From Crossing Over to Connection, there's also an optional meditation you can add on that walks you through learning how to sense them.
In the meantime, let’s give our Loved Ones a round of applause.
It’s not easy to learn a new language, but when both parties make an effort, the work is done twice as fast. And when there's a will, there's a way.
