Interpreting Spirit Signs

Interpreting Spirit Signs

Interpreting Spirit Signs of loved ones who passed is very real and happening all around us. Death is not the end of life. Death is a transition from the physical body into a new form. Our departed loved ones are very much alive and part of our daily life. We simply choose to be present and we will recognize them.

Interpreting Spirit Signs through acceptance and Spirit’s messages may assist to:

Ease pain or grief of losing a loved one
Overcome fears and limitations about death
Realize the true essence of living your life completely
Communicate with and learn from Spirit in your daily life
Strengthen intuition for seeing, feeling and listening to your inner voice beyond doubt

Interpreting Spirit Signs requires being “receptive” to messages of guidance. The merriam-webster dictionary defines receptive as “able or inclined to receive; especially :  open and responsive to ideas, impressions, or suggestions.” We must choose to be open and willing to recognize the unlimited ways our loved ones passed, our Spirit family, may choose to communicate. Some ways I’ve personally experienced include:

1. Dreams – Dreaming of a departed loved one is the most common way for Spirits to communicate. When asleep, we are open to additional levels of consciousness. Our spirit body travels in the astral levels and able to contact and communicate with your Spirit family. Our brain interprets this as a dream.

2. Electrical Occurrences – Our loved ones like to manipulate electricity to capture our attention and inform us they are nearby. Light bulbs flicker or turn on/off, telephones ring, radio volumes are adjusted, radio station channels are changed, and televisions turned on/off.

3. Temperature Changes/Sensations – tingles, goose bumps, shooting energy feeling, heightened awareness or greater alertness, hair being played with, and a touch on the shoulder or arm are all signs of their presence.

4. Movement of Objects – Objects appear moved or completely disappear. For example, if you are an organized person and able to recognize when objects are not in the usual position, Spirit may take this approach to attract your attention (frames, pictures, candles, stones, flower arrangements, rear view mirrors, lip balm, and much more).

5. Smells – the deceased’s perfume or aftershave lotion fills the air. This is a sign your loved one is around you especially when you know you are alone or nobody is wearing this specific scent.

6. Inspirational Thought – Inspiration means “in Spirit”. You may be involved in or thinking about something completely different when suddenly a memory or thought of your loved one enters your awareness. Following this experience, you may receive the answer to a question you’ve been seeking, or resolution to a situation that has been on your mind. The spirit world communicates by thought. During our awakened state, Spirit uses thought to influence, guide and support us to make the appropriate decision. A good way to stay open to inspiration is to rest your mind: relaxation breathing, massage, writing, meditation, walk in nature, dancing, etc.

7. Synchronicity or Coincidence – Nothing happens by accident. In my experience, coincidences are not coincidences at all. All circumstances grow out of thought. James Van Praagh firmly believes “The outer world of circumstance is shaped by the inner world of thought. Synchronicity or coincidence is really divine intelligence acting upon our thoughts. It’s when things just happen to fall into place without any effort.” Synchronicity is another opportunity for our Spirit friends to play a role and convey their interest in linking you up with the appropriate people, events, experiences, and resources that support you in your life’s vision.

• When I was looking for an apartment in which to live, I was guided to call a phone number in the paper that “apparently” popped out at me. When I called, I reached the office secretary for David Gooding, a long-time friend and business associate of my Dad. The suite was in the recently newly built building Dad used to live in and care take for David. This historical building was burnt to the ground in a fire, and rebuilt with 50% keeping the original face of the building, 50% completely upbeat and modern. The suite I was shown was in the original historical side, and the woman who guided me to the suite I last spoke with during my Dad’s memorial service.

• My sister Chantelle was searching the newspapers for a used horse trailer. When Chantelle and her mom Jackie checked out an ad that intrigued them, the trailer turned out to be the one our Dad owned. It was the exact trailer Jackie sold following Dad’s passing. It has been repainted and the floor was in original condition.

8. Visions – When we are open enough, our loves ones may show us a part of all of their form: the body as we remember them. My sister Corrine, in her deepest pain, saw a vision of Dad the morning following a painful night’s sleep, standing at the foot of her bed. Dad appeared beside Corrine’s friend who came into the room to assist. My step mom Jackie also recognized Dad’s Spirit walking around their home following his passing.

Your loved ones will elect to communicate with you in a way that is recognizable to you. This requires a development of self-trust to interpret the meaning of the message. Listen to your heart, for this is where the answers and truth reside.

In my experience, the more messages or signs I received from a Spirit, the more I believed in eternal life and the less I feared death. Although knowing our loved ones are close by in Spirit does not take away the pain of physical loss, it does lend to a lessening of the feelings of grief. In time, a celebration of what your loved one has to teach you from the spiritual dimension will support you in ways you could never have imagined.

Are Moving Objects like Spirit Signs Real?

Wishing you joy & love in your exploration of life and what death means to you!


  1. Coleen please contact me via the email address I provided. This is very personal and I’d really like your option and advice. Thank you for your time.

    • It was so amazing supporting you in a consult call. You have a beautiful story of spirit signs and love, so very special to your heart, your soul, your “personal” connection with your loved one.

  2. Can you please help me to understand. My sister gave me two angel statues everynight when Im aslerp they turn by them selves. My sister is still alive. Im not sure why this happens. Please help.

    • Dear Tina, I’d love to help you better understand what this means to you so you remain open to receive messages to help feel better in your life. These messages can be highly personal so I’ll invite you to schedule a complementary Discovery Skype/phone call via email.

      First thing, we are what I call multi-dimensional beings so we don’t have to physically die to communicate thoughts and send messages to each other. Is your sister weighing heavily on your thoughts? Are you/her facing a difficult experience? Has someone you loved died? Check inside what you are feeling and thinking. It’s most always the FIRST thought that pops into your mind when you look at the moved angel statues.

      Too funny our similar experiences, but different. I have two small angel statues (white & gold) that represent the time my aunt Patricia died. They were from her memorial service. The GOLD statue is regularly turned 45 degrees. I move it back and eventually it turns again! In my case, this is her angelic spirit communicating with and supporting me on my life journey.

  3. I have a heart shaped blown glass with my daddy’s ashes in it. One time before it was moved from my bedside table and we had a tragedy in our family. Today the heart was moved again. What does this mean ? I have been thinking of my Daddy just about everyday this past few weeks. His favorite holiday was Easter.

    • Dear Michele, I love your share about your dad showing his presence to you. Beautiful. My father transitioned 22 years ago this June, and he continues to show his presence particulary through moving objects. Items he’s connected to, items that present a meaning to me. There can be a deeper layer of messages within, however, at the onset your dad is thinking of you very strongly right now. He is showing me you may be experiencing a bit more difficult time in your life, like when he moved the heart blown glass with his ashes following the tragedy your family endured. Letting you know he is at your side and inviting you to connect deeper with your heart. Interestingly, my core work for 16 years has been helping my clients transform grief, get unstuck, and become more aligned in their Health, Heart & Passions.

      If you’d like to explore how to further develop your ability to interpret spirit signs, or transform something in our life to live a more Vibrant & happy life, I invite you to schedule a Free Discovery Call with me. Write me at: to book a time. Blessings xo

But with the severity of the break up i see it highly impossible.. Can’t someone please tell me what’s happening

    • Dear ‘Angelwings’. This is my professional site and i’m happy for others to share their insights as long as comments are regarded as profoundly supportive to each other. My blog is being discovered by many as a results of numerous and growing incidences of OBJECT MOVEMENT, much like your experience. my first happenings of ‘Object Movement’ came as a result of my beloved father Gerry and cousin Rob who transitioned (passed away) then began to show me their Spiritual aliveness through various spirit signs. By the simple fact that the keys belong to your ex who is no longer a significant other in your life, and you’ve been dreaming of starting over, I’d take that as a POWER & CLEAR SIGN and move forward with it in a beautiful light! I offer Spiritual, Personal & Professional Intuitive Coaching if you’d like to experience that. For a taste of working with me, Contact Me via email to book a FREE Discovery call: EmailMe@ColleenWynia. Many blessings 🙂

  5. What does it mean when your bed shakes a bit? Not violently, but moves sort of back and forth? (I didn’t feel scared) Also, a dropping sound on the floor next to my bed (has happened a few times over the past 5 years)

    Recently in Lake Tahoe, I was alone in my friend’s cabin in the bathroom and noticed my clothes hanging on a towel rack start to move downward. I wasn’t scared and am always asking for my angels and spirit guides to show me signs etc. So maybe it was a sign??
    I’m an empath and very intuitive too. Just trying to understand what all these things mean. Sorry for the long post!

    Thanks so much for any insight you can provide 🙂

    • Thank you Jade for your wonderful contribution. Sharing these experiences is helpful to many globally. Yes, indeed a sign. Interpeting the sign comes down to what it means most to you. It’s not so much the meaning of each “type” of movement, but rather a way to capture your attention, draw you in. These experiences are picking up globally and you will have many more to come. You are an intuitive and empath, so ask yourself “Is there someone in my family that has died who may be reaching out to me?” If you don’t know anyone directly, ask your family. Most important, trust yourself Jade. The name or angelic being that pops into your mind always spot on. If you’d like a professional consult to help you better understand and develop this awareness, please email me. We can dive deeper. I’m here to help.
