Each week, I'll answer a question about the paranormal, whether a general question, or one about human or animal ghosts (Earthbound) or spirits (crossed over). Here's this week's question:
Q: How might one know, if they're really picking up words from a spirit (or loved one that has passed),or if it's all in their mind? (maybe because they knew this person so well)...
A: Good question! Spirits (those who crossed over as opposed to ghosts who chose to remain Earthbound) usually come around on birthdays, anniversaries or holidays (and sometimes a week or two away from those events). So, if you "hear something" that you think may be from spirit, check if one of those special times is near.
Spirits will also tell us a word or give us a clue about something we would not know about, forcing us to ask someone else they know to make sense of it. Messages from spirit, and mediumship are puzzles that we have to put together.
Also, if you find yourself suddenly thinking about something that is tied to someone in spirit, it's likely that the spirit influenced you to think about it out of the blue. Spirits can also influence us to drive down different streets at a given time to avoid an accident.
Try to think back, too, to see if someone mentioned the object recently, because that may trigger the word in your head. If that's the case, it's not a message from spirit, just something you're remembering.
