It is true that it is easier to perceive your own deceased loved ones than the loved ones of other people.
Sensing Your Loved One After They Pass Is Easy
You already know what they sound like, what their soul feels like and the types of things they would do if they would visit you - this is because you were familiar with their personality before they became invisible.
When Someone Dies Early, This Can Mean Someone in Your Family Is a Medium
Fathers, sons, brothers, sisters, best friends husbands and many more people have passed, only to, within month after their crossing, begin ‘haunting’ or ‘visiting’ (whichever way you want to look at it) someone they knew closely while alive.
Sadly, many of these visits (er...hauntings) go unnoticed for years because:
You mistake it for grief
You tell yourself you are having hallucinations and going crazy
You continue to go about your daily business, because you certainly weren’t born with spiritual abilities, so why would you suddenly have them now?
People who die young, often live out the rest of their soul relationship with you as a person in Spirit. They finish out their life as a Spirit, to incentivize you to finally learn how to communicate with Spirits.
When You Know Someone Who Has Died, This Is often Incentive For You To Start Thinking About the Spirit World on a More Serious Level
The reason why many mediums don’t open up their abilities before the crossing of someone they love is because there is no incentive to.
If you have a great life and everyone you love is alive, what purpose is there to suddenly garner an interest or a care in what’s happening in the Spirit World?
There isn’t. Most of us go about our lives going to Target, getting dinner ready, wondering whether or not we should go back to school, plastered to our computer screens and listening to Pandora all day. With this continual distraction going on, and this continual attention focused so much on the physical, there is really no way, you are going to suddenly snap, put the pieces together and realize all the weird sh*t that’s happened to you since college suddenly makes sense.
Most people don't care about the Spirit World until someone they love dies and things change.
It’s Not Grief, If It Keeps Happening to You and Only You
Does your husband keep visiting you and sending you signs?
What about your son?
Do you always feel him around?
What about this weird presence you sense while you shower, ever since your brother’s girlfriend suddenly died?
You know, they could go be with someone else and be sensed by someone else - but they aren’t doing that. So, why you?
What makes you the prime target for:
The pictures falling off or tilting on the walls
The feeling you have someone is standing in your room
Seeing the face of your loved one in other people on the street
Hearing knocks or coughs in the middle of the night
Because you may be a medium now.
Thankfully, now that you have someone you trust on the Other side, it’s the perfect opportunity to work with them together to open your gifts safely.
Many mediums have a single Spirit that acts as their first escort or contact with the Spirit World.
I call them your bridge. It's usually someone you love that has passed.
