1. After-Death Communications

There have been many cases where people have experienced some form of communication between themselves and a deceased family or friend in one shape or another.

If this hasn’t happened to your personality, you may know someone who has. 

After-death communications (ADCs) are unpremeditated, intimate signals discerned to come from loved ones after their departure.

These messages are perceived to be highly meaningful and unmistakably clear to those receiving them. 

Generally, these messages are received spontaneously without any real prompt.

In some cases, it can come as a surprise. Leaving someone shocked that an otherworldly experience can take place if they are not educated on the matter. 

These after-death communications can come in various different forms.

For instance, there are ‘dream visits’, these are generally extremely vivid or seem ‘real’ that comes with a hard-to-shake feeling. Unlike other dreams, these ones are hard to forget. 

In addition to this, you may experience electrical effects on appliances, moving forms of apparitions, radios, computers, or lights going on or off. The unexplainable appearance of meaningful objects, or movements of objects; audience external voices or sounds; lights without a source; feeling a touch; smells related to a departed loved one.

2. DeathBed Visions

Moments before death, some people may experience apparitions of deceased loved ones or friends. This is to help escort them onto the other side, comfortably and safely. 

These deathbed visions are not only reserved for movies and stories. But they are more common than you may think, too – taking place across religions, cultures, and nationalities. 

Such cases have been recorded throughout history and consist of one of the most prolific proofs of life after death. 

Here, the exact number of deathbed visions is hard to quantify since approximately only 10% of people are conscious before their deaths.

That said, they last approximately five minutes and are most experienced by those gradually approaching death, such as those suffering from terminal illnesses or life-threatening injuries. 

It remains the fact that we will never know if these paranormal experiences exist. Until we too pass from this life.

However, this is one aspect of these visions to lend more credence to the idea of visitations from spirits on ‘the other side’.

Albeit rare, sometimes, spirit entities are not only seen by the dying patient but by relatives, friends, and others in the room, too. 

3. Dream Visitations

As mentioned, one of the most common ways to be visited by those in Spirit – deceased loved ones – is through dream visitations. 

While it can be easy to talk yourself out of having a spirit visitation dream, they are more common than you may think.

If you have ever had one, you will notice that they are much different from your regular dreams. 

During Spirit visitation dreams, generally, a deceased loved one is able to enter the dream with some sort of light surrounding them.

In the dream, while they may ask you to deliver a message or even talk to you, they are usually here to offer you some comfort that they are OK – they are experiencing peace and have made it to the afterlife comfortably. 

This typically provides the deceased person’s loved ones with a sense of closure or peace. 

4. Receiving A Symbolic Message

One incredible sign of the afterlife is receiving a symbolic message from a loved one who has passed away.

Those who have passed are often eager to share with you that they are OK and are still a part of your life. 

While many people can feel a deceased loved one or friend watching over them, it can sometimes be hard to be this perceptive. 

As such, these spirits will often provide us with signs and signals that are hard to ignore. Once you have received a particular message, over and over again, you’ll know it is from the other side. 

These signs can come in a variety of different forms. The key is to always keep your eyes open for anything out of the ordinary and synchronicities.

5. Sensing Their Presence

After a loved one passes, many people have reported cases of being able to sense their presence in the room.

Whether this takes the form of a literal shift in the room – in the forms of movement or energy – or the temperature may even change. 

Moreover, another common sensing of the presence of a loved one is at night. Whereby you may notice a shift in pressure on the side of the bed, or even someone sitting beside you while reading a book. 

Final Thoughts

Life after death is one of the greatest mysteries. That said, it is also one of the greatest adventures, too. 

From after-death communications to sensing the presence of deceased loved ones, there are various pieces of evidence pointing toward life after death. 

Hopefully, this guide has informed you about everything you need to know about the proof of the afterlife.
