Spirit Is Speaking To You Right Now by John Cali

One of the most common questions folks ask my spirit guides and me is “How can I communicate with my dead loved ones?”

That’s a question most of us ask one time or another. I sure have!

As I see it, the problem is not that physical death cuts the lines of communication between our loved ones and us. Just the opposite, in fact. Our family in spirit are always right here with us now, in a much more powerful and intimate way than when they were in a physical body.

But we, as a human race, have lost our ability to communicate with Spirit. And it’s time now—in fact, there’s never been a better time—to reconnect with Spirit. In this era of heightening human consciousness, it’s never been easier.

My spirit guides often say we never lose those we love, in “life” or “death.” What we call death is an illusion anyway. There is no death. There is only life, then more life—life after life after life….

We are eternal. And so are our loved ones. And so are all humans and all living creatures.


Spirit—your loved ones in spirit, God, your angels, your spirit guides—are always right there beside you. But since so many humans are not open to spirit communication, or do not believe it is possible, there is no communication.

It’s not because Spirit is not talking to you. It’s because you are not listening. The ways Spirit can communicate with you are limitless.

Spirit can speak to you through your family, through animals, through books, and so on. In fact, there’s a message from Spirit in literally every experience you have in your physical lifetimes.

For example, one of John’s spirit guides often brings him feathers as gifts and as reassurance that all is well.

When you acknowledge and accept the reality of spirit, then you will be opening yourselves up to even more direct communication. Of course, the most direct communication is through your heart, through your inner knowing—or intuition, as you call it.

Do not limit the ways spirit can communicate you. Spirit is unlimited. You are unlimited.


This video, The Language of Spirit by spiritual teacher and psychic medium John Holland, will touch your heart if you’ve ever missed a loved one who’s passed into spirit. And who of us has not?

    My loved ones “visit” me in dreams…I know it is them because I feel as though I have spent real time with them. The messages and confirmations I get from them is so real. If I have a problem the I can’t solve, I often ask for someone to come in my dreams, I invite and welcome them. My father visited me a couple months after he died in a visual experience. There are often “gifts” of one kind or another that cross my path and I always express gratitude for them and for the knowledge that my loved ones are always there. Thank you for this message, John.

      Thank you, Carol Ann, for sharing your experiences. I also get visits from “dead” family and friends in my dreams.

    Good advice from everyone. I often feel the “presence” of loved ones no longer here. Usually it is a quick visit to express their love. It is a feeling, not so much a conversation. I am open to however I may be contacted and by whomever. Archangel Michael is my constant companion and I am so grateful for that amazing energy and ongoing conversation. It has been an immense help for me over these past 15 or so years. . .maybe longer.

    It has been easy for me because I know and trust the energies and am willing to allow the connections. There is one who drops in on me frequently that I met at a spiritual seminar in this lifetime. She and I had a significant lifetime together in Atlantis and no doubt other timelines over the course of earth history. I feel her so often that I want to open up a dialogue with her and see if she has information that she would like to impart to me.

    These communications are all wonderful and certainly obtainable. I have never purposely sought out a communication with one of my departed loved ones but of course from time to time they certainly come to my thoughts. And then it is rather soon that I begin to experience their energies in a very direct way.

    Blessings, Hugs and Loves

      Thanks very much, Shirl, for sharing. Archangel Michael is one of my companions too. He has such wonderful, powerful energy.

      Love, John

    Do you communicate with your “dead” loved ones?

    All the time. I will feel them, or feel their presence, or laugh at something I remember about them and I know they are with me. Then we speak, and laugh, and love. Sometimes, I call them to me to tell them how special they are to me, or share my knowing about what a special gift they were to me even when I didn’t realize it at the time. It’s uplifting and loving and beautiful. I have helped others to make these connections.

    Or with your spirit guides?

    Actually, more often than I do my loved ones that have passed over. Many, many times during each day I speak with Spirit: guides, ascended masters, angels, arch angels, and Great Cosmic Beings. I can’t imagine not doing that. And I would love to share that they are excited to communicate with us once again, to claim that connection with us, that oneness. They are always with us, but we need to open the connection and invite them into our hearts and our lives. Their signs of contact are always there if you look.

    Do you have any advice for those struggling with this?

    This sounds silly perhaps, but my advice is to quit struggling. Just sit quietly, outside, inside, wherever you feel peace. Relax, call their name, and open your heart. If you are calling a loved one who has passed, remember a particularly memorable time with them, or picture their image inside you. You might smell a particular fragrance that reminds you of them — they are there. Or you might suddenly remember a funny thing you did together that makes you laugh. They are speaking to you through that.

    Don’t expect a human, voice to voice conversation. Although that is possible, if you are struggling, you need to move slowly. Get used to just suddenly having thoughts about them, or something associated with them. They communicate this way. When I first moved to Northeast Montana, I was petrified driving in the ice and snow. I would feel my father’s energy sitting in the seat beside me, and I would hear his words to me when I was a child: “If you fear something, do it again and again until it is not fearful for you. Face it head-on.”

    Spirit, for me, begins the connection with a sudden, huge feeling of love,peace, and comfort. Their energies are so wonderful you can’t miss them unless you don’t want them. For me, Spirit often speaks in images that I see with my eyes closed, or sudden packets of information that I need to kind of translate. Some Spirit Beings have special ways to let you know they are wanting your focus. For example, one of my guides will appear on my arm in the form of a butterfly. Then I pay attention or say “hi there!” There are all sorts of means they use which are probably different for each of us. Bright lights passing, music when you aren’t listening to any electronic media, numbers on a clock like 444 or 111 or some other means of seeing numbers. Just relax and pay attention and Love.

      Thank you very much, Mikala. Your words are very wise, and could well serve as a “mini-course” for connecting to, and communicating with, Spirit. You said it all beautifully.

    So lovely!

    And so pertinent….I’ve been feeling my mother and my son, and elder relatives coming in stronger and stronger lately.

    Yeah, I kinda do as a physical medium and a voice channel, so yes I do connect with lots of entities.
