Six Enlightening Confirmations That Spirit Is Near You

By Jacqueline Davieau ©

Weekly Feature

And No, You Are Not Crazy!

Believe it or not, the spiritual realm is around you all the time. There are very distinctive calling cards to let you know when spirit is nearby. (As in the same room…close). Some of us are more sensitive to spiritual energy than others. Those that are sensitive to this energy are considered Empaths. An Empath is simply someone who is able to understand and experience the feelings of others, outside of their own perspective. Many people do not realize that they are Empaths, but they are. A spirit is 100% energy.

As a Reiki Master/Teacher, I am very aware of energetic shifts around people, places, and things. However, this is something we are all capable of doing. I am going to go over a few enlightening confirmations that a spirit is near you, and is also trying to communicate. Anytime that spirit tries to communicate with you, please treat it as the gift that it is. I am confident that you have all experienced at least one of these spiritual events.

Ring in the Ear

Whenever I am giving a client a spiritual healing/reading, and my right ear begins to ring. I know instantly that a message from spirit is about to come through. The spiritual realm is at a higher vibration than ours, and when they are near us it can be extremely sensitive on our ears. There have been plenty of times, when I have been going about my normal daily activities and my right ear begins to ring. When this happens, I clear my mind and wait for the message spirit wants to tell me. This is quite common, and anyone can pick up on a spiritual frequency change. The next time your ear starts to ring, try to be receptive to what spirit has to say. (If you have constant ringing in your ears, please check with you doctor. This may be a condition known as tinnitus).

Sudden Temperature Change

A sudden drop in temperature, or “cold spot” is a sure sign that a spirit is near you. The drastic change in temperature may even give you goosebumps. The theory is, that when a spirit is trying to manifest itself, it can use the energy from heat in the surrounding area. As it is using the heat around you, it will cause an instant drop in the temperature.

PRO TIP… A good way to test a cold spot is to move in and out of the area. Check to see if the entire room is cold, or if it is only cold in one small area. I have been able to see my own breath in cold spots!

Odd Sounds or Voices

Have you ever heard odd tapping or knocking on the walls in your home? This could very well be a spirit trying to get your attention. It is easier for a spirit to make a small noise than to completely manifest right before your eyes. Spirit also loves to call your name. When they are unable to get your attention in subtle ways, they will call out your name. This scares many people, but it shouldn’t. If an energetic being wants to talk to you that badly, consider yourself special.

For a good portion of my adult life, I worked as a Paranormal Investigator. One of the driving reasons why I entered the field, was because I often heard the voices of spirits. I was hellbent to prove my experiences were real. My favorite form of evidence to capture was always EVP’s. (Electronic Voice Phenomenon). With a voice recorder recording, you ask spirit a question, and if you are lucky you will get a response. The best part of getting EVP’s as evidence, is that you do not need to be a professional investigator to do it. All you need is a basic voice recorder.

PRO TIP… When you are doing an EVP session ask spirit a question, and then stay silent for 30 seconds. You want to give the spiritual realm a chance to answer. Also, I like to keep my recordings under 5 minutes. It makes it easier to review. When you listen back to your recording always use headphones.

Electronics Malfunctioning

Electronics are the perfect medium for spirits to manipulate. Since they are energetic beings, electronics are their Jam!

They can do this in many ways:

  • Lights flickering

  • TV turning on and off

  • Phone will ring usually only one time only

  • They will change a radio station to “white noise” and speak through the white noise

  • Garage door may open and close

  • Children’s toys will go off all hours of the night

  • Clocks will stop, and then restart randomly

The list is endless, but you have a good idea of what I am talking about.

PRO TIP …When a spirit is near you may feel an electrical charge in the air, causing the hair on the back on your neck to stand up.

More Than Just a Thought

When we cross-over and become spirit, the way that we communicate with one another changes. We no longer have to use our voices to speak. Spirit will talk to you telepathically. When a spirit is speaking directly to you, a random thought may come out of nowhere to your mind. This is a gift from spirit that so many people brush off because they think the thoughts are their own. Our loved ones love to give us guidance this way. Be mindful of your thoughts. Did the thought come from you, or someone else?

Seeing Something from the Corner of Your Eyes

This has happened to all of us at some point in time. You see something from the corner of your eyes, only to turn and nothing is there. The reason we can see spirit from the corner of our eyes has a lot to do with our anatomy and physiology, but we will save that for science class. Many times, it will look like a dark figure “Shadow Figure”. Please do not let this alarm you. When spirit is trying to manifest it may look “Shadowy”, or dark compared to the white ghostly figures we have become accustomed to.

My Story

I would like to share a personal experience with you all. I often sense my son’s spirit near me, and other higher vibrational beings, such as Angels. This is a chapter from my first book, Inspiration from Above. I hope it brings you comfort.

I’m Wide Awake

Monday morning, 6 am, an alarm is going off. I have a morning routine that I do. I start my coffee, feed the birds, and look at the sky. The morning sky is always so stunning. I find peace for a few minutes before I have to begin my chaotic life. It is Monday, so this coffee needs to be extra strong. As much as I love my job, the weekend always goes by way too fast. I still have about 45 minutes until I have to get the kids up and going for school. Enough time to get my caffeine fix in and admire the birds.

I love the large window in my living room. I often find myself looking out of it daydreaming or getting lost in the sunrise. I cannot start my day without talking to God first. Looking out this very window gazing upward is when I usually have this conversation. After my morning prayer I always talk to my son, today would be no different. I talk to him as if he is right next to me because I feel that he is.

On this day I told him that I had a confession to make. I feel as if I am stuck in an impossible place, in the middle if you will. Part of me so desperately wants to go home and be with him. To go home, my Lord, I am homesick… Yet, the other half of me knows I still have 2 children to take care of here. No parent should ever have such a feeling. When I say things like this to my friends, they do not always understand. A few have even feared that suicide was on my mind. That is not the case, not at all. I long to be with all my children and I am faced with the cold reality that I will never have all three in the same room again, at least not in this realm. The morning is so silent and calm; I can hear myself think. It may look like I am having a conversation with myself, but I know I have someone listening. I keep on talking to my son about how I want to be home again. It just is not fair I want to be with all of you! This is a choice I cannot make.

“Here is there.”

What? I can hear his voice.

“Here is there.”

I hear him say it again. At this moment I am unsure of the source of his voice. Is it coming from my thoughts or is he standing next to me? I repeat out loud,

“Here is there.”

I am still looking out the window the whole time this is going on, but now I have a smile on my face. I say the words again, here is there. An overwhelming feeling of hope fills my heart; it is such a warm feeling of encouragement. I believe the words that I am being told that I am also repeating, here is there.

Not only did I notice a change in how I was feeling but the view I had from my window also began to change!

The trees began to brighten and change shades. Not colors that we see here in the spring, but the colors I have seen in Heaven. The grass started growing until it was about knee high. The shades of the grass are green, blues and gold. I noticed more wildlife in what used to be my front yard. Animals from all around the world were together peacefully.

“Here is there.”

I hear it again! My eyes are glued to what is going on outside my window. I am wide awake, and I even pinch myself to prove it. Yes, I am wide awake! Everything is so alive. The trees, grass, and plants. They have an energy about them, a life force. I turn my focus on the street that I live on. The road began to dissipate in front of me. Nature is beginning to take over. Where the cement roads use to be a river began flowing. The same long grass appeared alongside the flowing water.

“Here is there, do you need to see more?”

The houses are gone, and there is not a car in sight. The very window I was behind vanished, all around me is life. No manmade structures. I am standing in a perfect place, a garden in paradise. What was previously a neighborhood is now my perfect Heaven. The busy city blocks gone, just like that. Let me pinch myself again, yes; you are wide awake. The last thing I hear during this experience is

“Here is not far away, here is within you.”

Then as soon as I blinked my eyes, the surroundings changed back. I was back to looking out the window seeing my neighbor’s homes and cars. The trees and grass seemed so dull now. Although spring in Ohio is beautiful, it could not compare to what I had just witnessed.

The rest of the day I must have said “here is there” a thousand times. As often as I feel my son next to me, this must be true. Here really is there. Is Heaven on Earth? Since I have begun my mission to share the truth of Heaven with the world, this is the first time something this profound has happened to me while in an awakened state. Remembering Heaven is a choice we all have, and it is achievable as well. Is Heaven really a place on Earth? From what I have seen the answer is YES!
