A Visit from the Deceased: How Does a Spirt Cross the Veil?



Have you ever felt the presence of a loved one who has died recently? Maybe you’ve noticed the smell of their perfume or felt the energy in the room is off somehow? Whatever experience you may have had, it may have indeed been a spirit trying to contact you from beyond. The important thing to remember, however, is that it takes a great deal of energy for a spirit to cross over the veil…to cross over into the physical realm. Because it takes so much energy, it’s important that you know how to make the most of a visit from your loved ones who are attempting to cross over so they can connect with you.  Here’s a look at a few ways in which you can be more aware and accepting of an attempted contact from a spirit in order to make the most of your limited time together.

Be on the Lookout for Revelations from Sacred Realms:

The spirit of a loved one may try to initiate contact through a sacred realm. Sometimes this means using a still-living entity to keep appearing to you and using it to assure you that the spirit will return or to show you where to look.

Communicating Through Premonitions:


Through a premonition, you may encounter beloved pets or other animals as well as deceased people. These entities will most likely have a message for you, or they may want to express that they still care for you and love you. It may also be a way of the spirit letting you know that they have suddenly passed.

Using a Creative Human Approach:

If you wish to practice and enhance your ability to communicate with spirits who are crossing the veil, it’s important to keep focused on your intention in order to increase your abilities as well as the number of visits. In order to do that, you and take a human approach…that is, share memories of the deceased loved one aloud with friends and family so that their memory remains alive and out there for them to hear. Regular meditation and trance work are also helpful, as it can increase possible approaches from spirits wanting to cross the veil. A creative and human approach to contacting spirits will enhance the likelihood of a successful visit.

Visiting with Spirits While Sleeping:


There’s no question that dreams are a viable and successful way to communicate with spirits. But it can also prove to be tricky, since it can be pretty difficult to control your dreams. A good way to help focus on the potential of the dreaming self talking to spirits is to keep a dream journal. This will help your dream recalling capabilities and aid you in remembering spirit visits within those dreams. Upon waking up and being still for a minute or two, write down everything you can remember about the dream from symbols and images to individuals that appeared.

If you can’t seem to recall the details of your dream, try writing down how you’re feeling. This may help you clue you in to where you’ve just been in your dream. By focusing on the dream realm, you’ll be telling your subconscious that you value its help and are open to messages from the spirits trying to come to you within your dreams. Be patient and you will eventually start to remember things and people that are appearing in your dreams.

One can never really know when a spirit will cross over the veil for a visit. But by being aware and open to the possibility, you should be well on your way to being ready to accept such a surreal experience when it happens!
