How to Tell If a Spirit Is Attached to You


Sometimes, it feels like some spirit or force from another realm is trying to contact you. In some cases, you can even tell that it is the spirit of a deceased relative or friend. Sometimes, it is just a presence of an unknown being. You hear things that do not make sense or notice something out of the corner of your eye. Now, you want to know exactly what is going on.

10 Signs of Spirits Trying to Communicate

There are some common ways that can help you learn how to tell if a spirit is attached to you. If you notice any of these signs, then there is a chance that a spirit is around you and is trying to communicate with you.

1. The Phone Rings Just Once

Sometimes, the phone rings just once by chance. If you notice other signs on this list or this happens frequently, then it might be a sign that a spirit is trying to contact you. Some people will even see the phone number of their loved one’s on their screen before the spirit hangs up. If this happens, it is definitely a sign that a spirit is attached to you.

In the modern world, spirits have extra options for trying to communicate with you. While they cannot actually talk to you, they can potentially get electronic devices and similar technology to act unusually. When you try to pick up the phone, you cannot hear them at all because they communicate in an entirely different realm.

It is amazing to see all the different ways that spirits try to communicate with technology. Sometimes, it is just the exact web page appearing with something that reminds you of a loved one. In other cases, it is a sudden call that rings once and stops completely. Pay attention to the world around you, and you will most likely notice more of these things happening.

2. You See a Butterfly

Butterflies are more than just gorgeous insects. They may have beautiful colors, but they can also be a sign from the spirit world. The butterfly is the ultimate representation of transformation. They begin life as a caterpillar, but they eventually transform into a beautiful butterfly. These insects are a reminder that beauty does not live for long on this earth. When a butterfly suddenly appears, it could be a sign from your loved one that they have finally transformed and are transitioning peacefully to the other side.

Other cultures have unique beliefs about butterflies. In China, there is an ancient legend that butterflies are a sign from your loved one. They mean that someone has come to visit you from the other side. When you see a butterfly, it means that a spirit wants you to know that they are around you and present.

3. You Notice Light Bulbs Flickering or Blowing Up

If you already have an old home, this sign might just indicate that your electrical wires are getting frayed and old. If you rarely have flickering lights in your home, then pay attention to this sign. You may suddenly notice that the lights flicker in your home without any explanation. Sometimes, the light bulbs may blow out without any apparent cause. If you call an electrician, the electrician is unable to find any obvious, reasonable cause to explain why such strange things are happening.

This is a common sign that a spirit is attached to you and is trying to contact you. When this happens, focus your mind and try to ask the spirit who they are. In many cases, a face or a name will suddenly rise up in your mind. This is not just your imagination. Your subconscious senses inputs from the spirit realm that you are unable to consciously process. The face or name that appears is from the spirit who is trying to each out to you.

4. The Clocks or Numbers Suddenly Stop

What are the chances that you would look at the clock and notice that it is 11:11 over and over again? After all, there are more than 1,000 minutes in the day, so the chances are pretty slim. When you look at a clock and keep noticing the exact same time, it may be because a spirit is nudging you to look at it. If the clock suddenly stops completely or you keep having to change the battery, it could be due to a spirit’s influence.

The number 11 is also a very powerful sign. This master number is a sign of positive energy. When it is present, it shows that a gateway is open to communicating with the other side. A stopped clock can also be an indication that someone is finally passing over to the spirit realm and they just want you to remember them.

5. You Notice Ghost or Spirit Orbs in Photos

Look at some of your photos. Do you notice any unexplained orbs of light? While detractors say that these orbs are just flecks of dust on the camera lens, paranormal experts believe that they are a sign from the spirit world. The fast speed of modern cameras means that images and light can get captured faster than the human eye can actually process alone. This means that signs from the spirit world suddenly become much easier to see.

You may notice these balls of light in different colors and different photos. Each color corresponds with a different meaning. Some colors are just a sign that the spirit is there and wants to let you know of its present. Black ghost orbs are often a warning of something more ominous. The location you are at when the ghost orb appeared can also indicate the type of spirit or message. For example, a ghost orb at a family reunion will most likely be from a loved one, although this is not always the case. In most cases, these ghost orbs are just a sign that a spirit is trying to communicate with you in some way.

6. The Room Temperature Changes

This is a very common sign that shows when a spirit is present. It is especially easy to notice in modern life because temperature gauges and good insulation make it unlikely that the temperature would drastically change for a normal reason. This sign is an indication that a spirit is nearby.

You might be sitting in a warm room when a cool breeze suddenly washes over you. Suddenly, it seems like the temperature has dropped. If you check the temperature gauge, it will most likely be exactly the same as it was before. Some people are extremely sensitive to a spirit’s presence and will immediately notice a temperature change whenever a spirit is in the nearby area.

There is an old superstition that a sudden chill or shiver is a sign that someone is walking over your grave. While the superstition is not perfectly accurate, it is right about chills being a connection to a spiritual presence. You are especially likely to notice this effect whenever you are talking about or thinking about someone who is passed on. Their spirit hears your thoughts and appears. This presence leads to the sudden temperature change that you experience.

7. You Notice Movement or Shadows Out of the Corner of Your Eye

This is another common sign that a spirit is attached to you or in the nearby area. For an unexplained reason, you suddenly notice a shadow at the corner of your eye. This effect can also seem like a sudden movement. When you actually look at the location of the movement, nothing is there to justify the unusual experience.

8. You Hear Music Playing

Over a lifetime of loving a relative or friend, you naturally develop common experiences. Music is one of the things that connect people together, so it makes sense that spirits would use music to communicate. Even you have not heard the song on the radio for years, you suddenly hear it everywhere. From the mall to the radio in your car, the song suddenly seems to be everywhere. When this happens, it is just a sign that the spirit is trying to say greet you.

9. You See Unusually Numbered Plates

Spirits cannot communicate the way that people do. Even if they wanted to just talk to you, you would be unable to hear them. Because of this, spirits often use things like numbers to communicate. Some people notice license places with unusual numbers or letters. For example, you may notice a license plate that says “SAM” after your relative Samuel passes on.

10. Feathers

A feather is another common sign of a spiritual presence. For no obvious reason, you suddenly notice a feather on the street, in your living room or somewhere else. This sign is just an indication that the spirit is there and wants you to know that they are okay. You do not have to worry about whether they are safe or can cross over.

How to Communicate With Spirits

After you notice these signs that a spirit is attached to you, you may naturally want to communicate with them. Some people have a natural ability to do this, but you can hone your own abilities as well. This type of two-way communication takes time, so be patient.

The first step is to keep practicing. It is unlikely that you will be able to communicate during the first few attempts, so just be patient. Your mind can also get in the way of your ability to communicate, so try practicing meditation. Clear your mind of outside thoughts and wait to communicate until you are completely relaxed. Most importantly, never attempt to communicate with the spirits when you are stressed out or in a negative frame of mind.

To attempt communication, start by finding a quiet, relaxed setting. This could be your backyard, at the beach or in a meditation room. Once you have found a quiet setting, bring along a photo or item from your loved one. These items have an imprint of your loved one, so they help to make communication a little easier.

Now, you just have to relax your mind and open your senses to the spiritual world. Sit peacefully and meditate as you wait for the spirits to communicate with you. Even if the spirits do not communicate during your waking life, they may attempt direct communication in your dreams. Try keeping a dream journal so that you can easily remember what happens and interpret your dreams the next morning.

Your ability or lack of communication abilities is not a sign of whether the spirit loves you or you love the spirit. It takes time to learn how to communicate, so just be patient. If you are noticing signs that a spirit is around you, it most likely means that the spirit is present and wants you to know that it is safe. It may take them time to pass over, but they will eventually move on to the next realm. Be patient and keep practicing because you will eventually be able to communicate.

  3. I am in need of advice. Please.. i have felt a presence every day for the past ten years. Initially i thought it was a ghost in a hone i was renting but it has followed me everywhere.. i hear noises and nobody is there. I just want to know who it is and what they want. I also have visions but of strangers. I know when loved ones are in trouble – i sense things and just know. Psychics i have visited have all encouraged me to develop these abilities which they seemed to know were within me. Im not sure what to do. Can you help please ?

    • Your experiences are related to your understanding of the world. Because of this connection with the spirit world, you have decided to speak with psychics. They have informed you of their thoughts regarding your future. It is clear that your abilities are related to positive energy, which is highly beneficial. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. This is certainly a calling that will bring positive energy into the world, and therefore something that you should nourish. Have a great day, Karen!

  4. Thankyou but I am still really concerned about the presence that is ever present. Is there anything Ican do to help or find out why it is around me . I feel like someoone needs my help and I am not able to do anything because I dont understand. Karen

    • It is possible that there is a spirit attached to you. You feel that you have a connection with something or someone around you. It is clear that you want to share your kindness and compassion at all times. Take this time to be alone for a while, and focus inwards. This will help you better understand your experiences at this time. Have a great day, Karen!

  5. So my parents are separated and my mom lives in a place called muse and it’s in the middle of the woods. I have alot of negative feelings there. I see things my ears ring, i hear scratches amd bangs all the time. But whats weird is i hear them at my dads also. He lives in a community so o dont know what to do. I’ve always been sensitive to this kind of stuff.

    • You have stated that there are two locations where you hear scratches and bangs. There may be various reasons for these experiences. First, you will find benefit in abstaining from consuming violent and dramatic media. If this does not help, then you may want to speak with a professional regarding the sounds that you hear. Of course, it is possible that both of the houses contain old pipes or squeaky boards. Regardless, you will certainly find benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Michael!
