In today’s advanced world, distant communication isn’t a big deal like it was in the ancient times. Now, bridging the distance between an absent loved one is simple – all you have to do is to pick your phone, send a text or email, video chat or even get on a plane to swiftly remove the physical distance. However, there isn’t much improvement made in the communication world that people can contact their loved ones who have departed.
There is no denying that losing a loved one is the most saddest and unbearable feeling, it just cannot be explained in few words. There are many people among us who try to communicate with those who they have loved and lost. But why contact a departed soul? Some people want to communicate because they want a sense of peace and while others are seeking a way to move forward.
Ways to Connect with Departed Loved Ones
If you want to or have tried connecting with your departed loved ones, here are some ways that can possibly help you:
#1 Speak Aloud in a Quiet Location
Yes, you’ve read it right! Speaking is one of the simplest ways to communicate with your loved one. It has helped many people find peace of mind, so don’t neglect it just because it seems absurd. All you have to do is to find a quiet place where no one is around.
You don’t have to speak to the air. Just hold a picture of the person you intend to talk and clear your mind of any other thought before communicating. Clearing your mind will help in directing communication at the departed person. Begin it with some basic yes or no questions. You should request your spiritual loved one to answer in some specific ways such as flicking of the candle or knocking on a wall.
#2 The Ouija Board
Thanks to the movies, there is a perception that the Ouija board is responsible for bringing the evil into the world by opening a portal. You have to comprehend that it is all about your positive mindset and whether you believe it’ll work or not. Ouija Board is an easy form of communication with the spiritual world. Use it with a positive frame of mind and don’t let any negative thought creep into your mind. You shouldn’t be under the influence of any drug or alcohol. Once you are done communicating with the departed person, you need to thank the spirit. It is important for you to close the portal by saying that “The session is ended”.
#3 Use the Yahrzeit Candle
Using the Yahrzeit candle is one of the effective ways to communicate with the deceased person. It is a Jewish candle that comes in a glass that has Hebrew writing on it and it can be found in most supermarkets. Regardless of your religion or background, you can use it to contact the departed souls.
Simply go to a quiet room and light the candle. You need to speak out loud to the person and tell him/her about everything such as your feelings and how your life has been after his demise. You need to talk as long as you feel like talking. Tell the departed person to answer in yes or no. The flame will get vertical or grow larger if the answer is yes. The flame will start moving side to side if the answer is no. Thank the departed for coming once you are done. You need to place an aluminum foil or plate under the candle and let it burn for the next 24 hours.
#4 Mirror Gazing
In this practice, a mirror is used to establish a more clear connection between you and the spirit. It is quite similar to using your mind to connect with the spirit. You need to go to a silent room with a mirror in it.
After standing in front of the mirror, quiet your thoughts and close your eyes to get rid of intense emotions or anxiety. Create the image of the deceased person in your mind and focus on it. The image can be blurry at first, so you need to make sure that it is as clear as possible. Open your eyes and imagine that the image will appear in the mirror. The image can be a bit blurry but you’ll be able to recognize the person. Start asking questions and try to be as open yourself. There are chances that the answers may come as images or emotions.
Not many people have tried meditation to communicate with their loved ones who have departed. It is important to understand that meditation helps in upgrading one thing that is extremely important to make contact with your deceased loved one, your consciousness. Communicating with a person who is no longer alive is not usually blatant. That’s why it is crucial to have a quiet mind and sharp senses – meditation can help you acquire both.
If you want to meditate, then you need to find a comfortable place and an object that you can focus easily. Let it be a small object or even a tree, you have to focus on it without thinking about anything else, except for that object. In other words, you need to practice holding on to your state for longer periods. Once you are good at it, close your eye and focus on the image of the deceased person. You need to comprehend that communicating with that person is only possible if you are in a better position to communicate.
The Bottom Line
You can communicate with the dead but you have to understand that it all depends on whether you believe in it or not. If you are not slightly hopeful that any of the above-mentioned ways is not going to work, then there is no point in trying. All in all, just clear your mind before communicating and make sure that you are not under the influence of any drug or alcohol. Stay safe and blessed and remember that the person who left this world wants you happy. Best of luck!
