Spirit Communication: Moving Objects…Signs from a Loved One

Circle of Friends tipped over, a sign of Spirit Communcation

When someone dies, their spiritual body continues living in an alternate vibration or frequency if you will. This is not another time or place as some believe, but here and now, among us. Our loved ones passed on are always available to communicate as WE and THEY desire.

My sharing today is the latest in which my father Gerry Wynia sought and captured my heart’s attention through Spirit Communication. But first, a little background.

On June 10, 2013 it will be 18 years since the anniversary of my father’s passing. Since that time, Dad has endeavoured to capture my attention in a magnitude of playful ways.

I have felt Dad’s presence as if he’s sitting beside me, seen objects moved, recognized his scent, heard his voice, witnessed electrical occurrences like street lamps turning on/off, and a common form of Spirit Communication – Dream visits.

Moving physical objects is a favourite form of communication because I am an organized person. Most items in my home have a place, so when a picture frame or candle or angel ornament is suddenly turned about or moved inches from its original location, I take notice.  If a person is not highly organized, it’s unlikely a loved one passed will elect to communicate this way. Rather, they will engage in another Spirit Sign that will invite a person to stand up and take notice.

Dad loves horses. Years ago, I was given dad’s horseshoe previously nailed above the horse stable entrance on his property. Having a part of Dad in my home means so much.

The horseshoe sits at the base of the speaker stand, adjacent to a Circle of Friends candle holder. Remember these? Very popular a few years back. Recently, I walked nearby the speaker stand and VOILA…there sits the Circle of Friends candleholder on its side, tea light tipped out and three (3) LOVE sayings sprinkled about.

To the common eye it would seem that someone accidentally tipped it onto its side. Perhaps moved with a foot, or caught by the vacuum cleaner cord, or a dozen other mental suggestions as to HOW it was tipped over? Because I’ve experienced this type of Spirit Communication for over 17 years, I knew without doubt that Dad was expressing his love and support. This was not ACCIDENTAL.

When clients ask, “How do you know it’s this person or that person who died?” I respond with, “You will know, it comes from within like an Ah Ha moment.” Trust your first instinct and feeling, the one before your mental chatter interferes.

The chosen form of communication at a given time is highly personal. Emotions may range from sadness, anger or grief to joy, laughter and exhilaration depending on what is occurring in life and what the moving object represents to each being.

Whatever the message, it’s beautiful for you and yours to interpret its meaning. You know you BEST, trust yourself!

  1. Hi Jill here. I have been searching on google for more info on Spiritual signs in the home. Did not find much except for your site. I have had a similar experience with objects moving or falling for no reason and also like you believe it was my Mom and Dads spirit wanting attention.
    But today I had a weird thing happen. I took a glass of water outside and placed it on the table. Just after this a chip of glass sprung off the side of the glass and fell next to the glass on the table.
    Cant explain this but put it down to a spirit or one of my spirit guides trying to give me a sign.
    If you can give me any more insight on this I would be grateful.
    Regards Jill

  2. I have dreams about my grandma, that passed away , very vivid dreams. I had a dream of her last night, haven’t dreamt of her for awhile before that. But today as I was sitting on my bed I was trying to remember the dream. I was thinking of her and wondering if she was OK. I also thought about my aunt that passed away recently. Well, after my thinking process I go to the bathroom and continued with my thought process of her. I get a text from my bf and set it back down on the table. Not even a minute passes I hear one loud thump. I look over and my phone is all the way over by my dresser. My phone was not on the edge….. I was a little freaked out at first but now I know it was either my grandma or aunt.

    • This is beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing with us. Although there are countless ways our loved ones in Spirit can choose to communicate with us, dream visits are high on the popularity list. In part because we are rested, relaxed and in an open state in which we can receive our loved one’s presence. As well, Dreams are easily accepted in society as Natural. I love your sharing about the “thump of your phone”. This is absolutely real and my sense is its your grandma. Your aunt is close as well, but your thoughts and heart have weighted heavily with your Grandma and she wanted to confirm LOUDLY with a “thump” that she hears you! How’s that for fun? Your Grandma is a playful one…more so now!

  3. Hello, I’ve recently been noticing a specific toy figure turning from it’s original position at home, it happens from time to time, not too often but enough for me to think it’s not ‘normal’. If it’s a form of communication from a spirit, Have any idea what’s it trying to say through this behaviour? Thanks.

  4. Dear Stephen, have you had more experiences since April?

    Most definitely you are on track in your understanding. This is indeed the spirit of someone you knew well when they were living, wanting to connect with you to communicate. Each message is a beautiful expression of their love and quite often their playfulness. It was 19 years on June 10 since my father transitioned over and he still moves the frames and candle on my bedside table, or any other item I may have in “his” corner! It’s fabulous and he’s only ONE of my many loved ones doing so.

    Like you, I was skeptical or rather unsure at first. How you know is you FEEL YOUR WAY. Listen to your intuition and gut instincts. When it happens again and again, no longer doubts reigns.

    I ask you this “Who’s name comes to mind when you think of the toy figure being moved?” Stay with it and you will know. I teach that we can access our spirit messages ALL BY OURSELVES. With my clients I help them interpret what it means for their well being and alignment to live the life they desire.

  5. Hello, my friend and I are very interested in communicating with spiritual beings and I found this article because I’ve wanted to educate myself further in speaking with spirits and guardians. My friend and I use a Ouija board (mainly) to interact with the spirits in each of our homes. We ask them questions and they answer and it gives me chills every time honestly there have been mainly occurrences when a sport has closed a door and once even started playing music on my phone. We have met many spirits but mainly communicate with our guardians. I was wondering if it was possible to have guardians that were not related to you, and also, is it possible that you can have multiple spiritual guardians? Or maybe you have a few spiritual guardians and one angelic guardian? Sorry I have so many questions I want to try so many new things when it comes to speaking with other beings. Also, my grandfather passed away very recently, about 2 months ago and I was ALSO wondering if it took a while for a spirit to fully pass? I haven’t tried using the Ouija board or automatic writing to reach him yet but does it take a while for a spirit to fully pass through or does it vary? I’m so sorry for all the questions but thank you so much for writing this article and reading this possibly. Thanks again.

    • Dear Alice and friend. Wonderful to meet you and learn of your unique experiences with spirit communication. I am grateful you discovered my site and happy to address a few points.

      First, in my experience using a Ouija board or anything else for that matter is a “vehicle” or way to strengthen your ability to recognize spirits. I don’t work with one, but whatever tool you like to use as you are developing your ability to TRUST the messages that come to you will indeed be beneficial. Follow what feels true for you.

      Yes absolutely, we can have multiple spirit guardians or angelic beings. On my journey, many of my “helpers” have been people I know who have passed over. Others are ones I haven’t met or don’t believe I know consciously, though likely have met on several occassions in past iives etc. different spirit helpers we draw upon as well, depending on the support and lesson we are in currently.

      The loved ones I’ve known who have transitioned (as I like to call passing over) have done so immediately. Their Soul’s evolution continues to evolve and develop, as such they take with them “who they are” at the moment of their human death. Perhaps it takes time to “settle” into this new form, this way of being, but they are fully present and can connect with you immediately. That is up to “them” and up to “you”. We are always co-creating our experiences with permission from each other and intention. Talk to your Grandpa and look for signs of him acknowledging you.

      I’d be happy to support you further in a consultation if you like. I offer a free initial phone consult if that is of interest to you.

      Beautiful to have connected and I know you are on track. When I first started to notice spirit presences, the key was TRUSTING they were real and I was indeed not dreaming or making it up.

  6. Hello there, my mum died of Cancer 5months ago, i was her ehen she took her lay breath. Recently I’ve been very imotional and finding it difficult to get over her loss. I visited her grave today and sat talking to her,
    Crying and telling her how much I love and miss her. I asked her if she was close to me and hoped that she could see and hear me. I asked for a sign that she was with me. Just as I was leaving the grave, i turned to blow her a kiss when I noticed that the Christmas wreath I got her was turned on its side. There was no wind or I didn’t catch it on my foot! I do believe this was her sign to me, to reassure me that she is fine. What do you think? Please advise?

    • I appreciate your share Jackie and acknowledge the grief you are experiencing. personally I’ve lost many loved ones including my father almost 20 years ago now, so I do feel what you are going through at some level. Absolutely, you can trust yourself Jackie. I believe this is indeed your Mom. We know this because you are asking if it’s her (so she’s the one you think and sense), and also that you were the one who gifted her the Christmas wreath. This is “only the beginning” of many more beautiful spirit connections with your Mom. Depending on your way of noticing change, she may try several ways or choose 1 or 2 styles that speak most to you. My blog titled Interpreting Spirit Signs may help you. Click here:
      If you’d like further support to understand while coping with grief, we can schedule a consult by phone or skype.
      Much love my new friend.

  7. Hello, I was wondering if I would be able to get your opinion on something that happened to me last year. The first one happened while I was eating on morning. I had a plate on my lap and had just taken a bite of my sandwhich but while I was chewing I noticed it got harder to control my jaw and I felt really heavy. Almost like I had an extremely heavy blanket draped over me. I didn’t think anything of it until the plate started to slide off my lap and when I would fix it, it would just slide again as if it were being pulled. Seconds later if felt like the blanket was taken off and I was able to chew and swallow my food. The second time happened around the same time in the morning about a week later. I just woke up and was getting out of bed at the foot of bed and I remembered that I needed my phone which was up by my pillows. Before I could even turn around my phone hit me in the back. It didn’t hurt and wasn’t hard enough to leave a mark but it still scared me and I broke down and cried right there. I’m still tearing up and getting goosebumps just writing this. Sorry for the long explanation but it’s always in the back of my mind and I’m always worried it’s going to happen when I’m all by myself. I was wanting to see what you thought about it. I’m scared because I don’t know what it is. It didn’t feel negative and I’m not sure if maybe it was just trying to get my attention and realized it scare me so it backed off? Or maybe it was a loved one? Thank you, Chelsie.

    • Dear Chelsie, thanks for having the courage to share your experience and for reaching out. I’ll share a few things to support you in this blog, then I’ll invite you to private message me via email if you’d like further insights. Most importantly, the very fact that the “energies” or experience didn’t feel negative to you is your answer. You have nothing to fear, as fear is self-imposed limitation when something “new” and particularly a “strange” occurrence that that we’ve never experienced before and cannot “humanly” explain. A week has passed since you wrote your note to me. Please check in to see if you feel more relaxed about things, less frightened? I want you to know this is common for Spirits, our loved ones who have transitioned and other loving souls in Spirit to capture our attention. You are safe and when you are ready to experience communication alone, by yourself, you will. Rather than me “tell you” who I sense is present, I invite you to “tune in” to the character, the personality, the FEELING of the Spirit’s energy presented through these actions you experienced. Does that make sense? It is someone who loves you very much and truly wants you to open to them, and the knowing that life continues in a new form. Watch my impromptu youtube video about my sister moving object: and then email me. We can work together if you’d like to learn more and expand your intuitive abilities. Know that you are not alone and nothing to fear, many blessings to you, Colleen

  8. For months now we have had many objects move, mobile phones fly off tables, pictures swing side to side on wall, bursts of wind moving curtains but no doors open etc.. glass ornaments flying off tables.. the list goes on.. should we have a guide visit us to ease our minds..? My housemate’s ex partner passed nearly 3 yrs ago, we feel it may be her, pls enlighten us on what we should do.. regards Lisa

    • Dear Lisa, thank you so much for sharing your experience. Is this the first time you have experienced such activity…at anytime in your life? I invite you to “trust” yourself and your housemate’s senses, you can rest in knowing that what you sense is likely very much your housemate’s ex partner who transitioned (passed). I work a little different than most psychic mediums, meaning my primary intention is to help my client’s develop both their level of belief through education about Spirit Signs and their ability to TRUST their intuition and knowings. The first step is to dispel the paranormal many feel this activity to be. I’ve personally been experiencing objects moving for 20 years now since my father transitioned and 19 years since my cousin Rob. If you’d like to ease your mind, strengthen your belief, and begin to interpret the messages being communicated through this beautiful and very active spirit – I’d be delighted to schedule a session with you by phone or skype. Please email: or call/text 778-288-6202 and we’ll coordinate. In the meantime, review this blog: Interpreting Spirit Signs

  9. My dad died last September, recently I have experienced items in my home being turned round and knowing I did not touch them and was not in the room at the time but upon re entering the room they had moved. One item is a wooden chair that he made at a early age. I am of sound mind and I have this feeling that it’s a communication from somewhere or someone. I have always had this feeling that there is more after someone passes away.

    • Thank you Diana for sharing your beautiful experience. Yes, I do feel this is your dad who transitioned. My father passed 20 years ago this past June and he continues to communicate with me regularly…all these years. Therefore I know his Spirit continues on, he’s assisted me through many challenging times. I encourage you to TRUST yourself. You are of sound mind. Please connect with me for a free initial 15 minute consultation if you’d like support by phone/skype, and review my blog on Interpreting Spirit Signs as I know it will bring value to you:

  10.

    • My dearest Pamela, first I am sending you so much love for the beautiful soul and women that you are. Your internal vision has been deeply clouded. The truth is you have much to offer yourself and other beings “living on the planet” and “those in spirit” – even if you cannot see this right now. Your loved ones in spirit who you are hearing know the truth. Many of them have lived the struggle of being a spiritual being in a human form and all that goes along with life. Yes, more than one being is wanting you to hear their love message. I encourage you rather than to “give up” on yourself, to relax into the deepest callings of your soul and endeavor to hear what the voices are saying to you. Again, you have a purpose hear and this extremely difficult and painful time for you, a questioning time, is part of your creation to hit “pay dirt” with yourself to love yourself or not. Each moment we choose life, we choose our thoughts, we choose our health, we choose….. if you want some help my dear then let’s schedule a time together by phone or skype… always a free introduction call.

  11. Pamela, my husband passed almost 5 yrs. ago and he was the love of my life,my entire world, I have had some things happen but the other night topped them all. I was sleeping and when I awoke my wedding ring was on my right hand, I was a little shook up. Have you ever heard of this happening before? I know it was not me.

    • Dear Sherry, I think you mean to be writing to myself – Colleen ! I am the intuitive coach and owner of this website. Sherry, your husband was indeed a beautiful man. He is smiling brightly and by your side. That is quite the experience. Yes, I can understand being shaken up but yes this was your husband’s powerful way of capturing your attention. Yes, I have heard of this happening and it does so in my world. My first experience of Spirit Signs was almost 20 years ago and I’ve been experiencing them ever since from my long list of Spirit Family members. I have a few videos you will benefit from viewing. The first two are very impromptu when I realized the power of my Mother’s story about her disappearing and reappearing wrist watch. This is the playlist on my YouTube Channel:

Please private message me at I’ve supported clients of all ages work through the emotional grief of losing a loved one, and helped them interpret signals they may be sensing of their loved one around them.
