It is very common for people to get signs from their loved ones, and if you are paying attention you will readily recognize these signs. Many people experience some type of after death communication soon after their loved one has passed, usually within the first few weeks. This may be hearing their voice, a dream, a strong feeling of their presence, or even an apparition. This type of dramatic sign is less common after they have been gone for a while, but if you are paying attention you will still get some signs, such as hearing a song that reminds you of them whenever you turn on the radio, a picture that consistently falls off the wall or tips on the dresser, a scent that you might associate with that person, etc.
The dead are always with us and it is love that keeps them around. You do not have to be a psychic to get signs that your loved one is still with you.
