Have you ever wondered if something was a sign from Heaven or just a coincidence?
We’ve talked about some ways our loved ones can send us signs that they are with us. These messages normally come in a time of need, or during a life change or transition when you are searching for guidance around uncertain times. Those in the Spirit realm can see tomorrow more clearly than you can see yesterday, and they want to help you. Think of it like Heaven is sending you a little “Hello.” Your loved ones are telling you they support and love you. They want you to know you are on the right track.
But what happens if you’re not paying attention? What if you don’t notice the signs?
You might not recognize signs from Heaven if you aren’t ready to receive them. Your loved ones will wait until you are emotionally ready to hear from them. They don’t want to hurt you or overwhelm you. Sometimes, it can be a whole year before you realize signs are coming from your loved one who has passed. When my friend’s father died, his youngest grandson was the first one to dream of him. One by one, his family members reported seeing him in dreams. For many months, my friend’s mother wondered why she never saw her husband in a dream. She was struggling with losing him, blaming the doctors and pushing her family away, on a deep level, even being angry at her husband for abandoning her. It took time for her to release some of those feelings and accept what had happened. At last, when she was ready, he came to her in a dream. It gave her so much peace to talk to him and feel his presence. From then on, she met with him regularly in her dreams, and her grief lifted.
Sometimes, when you aren’t recognizing the signs, your loved ones will use repetition to get your attention. If you find that you keep waking up at the same time every night, or waking up at the time of their passing, do not be alarmed. This is your loved ones way of reaching you because you may have been missing the other signs they have been sending you.
Numbers are another way your loved ones use repetition to make you see that they are with you. You might notice the same numbers on the clock over and over. Every time you see the time on your car dashboard or on your phone it reads 1:11, or 4:44. Maybe you get the same number every time you place an order at a restaurant counter. Music and words can repeat also. Sometimes it is the same song every time you turn on the radio or your loved one’s name everywhere you go. Pay attention- the other side is trying to reach you.
I have another story for you that may give you the chills. A friend of mine was struggling knowing that her Mom was very sick and about to pass away. Her Mom, had struggled with so many health issues that she wasn’t even able to hold conversations during her last few months. My friend was so upset because she felt like her Mom was passing away and that she wasn’t able to find comfort. She struggled with wondering if Heaven was even real and if her Mom would be ok or even make it there. She called me and told me her concerns. After listening, I saw what to do to help her in a vision. I told her that the next time she visited her Mom to ask her to send her a special sign from Heaven. The next day she went to the nursing home and said “Mom I want you to send me a penny when you have made it safely to Heaven”. Not sure if her even Mom heard the message, she went home and her Mom passed away shortly after.
The next day, her neighbor invited her over for a glass of wine to unwind from the stressful week and to just relax. When then neighbor reached into the cupboard to get the wine glass sitting underneath was a shiny penny. At the moment my friend got the chills, but thought it must be a coincidence. She didn’t think it was her Mom she thought it was wishful thinking. A few days passed and she walked into the funeral home to say her final goodbye to her Mom. Sitting on her seat was another penny. At that point, bells started going off in her head. She couldn’t figure out how the pennies kept appearing or where they came from. She didn’t tell anyone about the conversation with her Mom. She knew it was not a coincidence and started to believe it was real. She got home that night from the services and stepped out of her car to find yet another penny! She was an instant believer standing in the driveway yelling “OK Mom I Know It’s You ! She called me almost immediately to tell me all about it. Suddenly, the tears were gone and she was laughing. You will notice that signs sometimes keep happening and happening when they are real. Normally they happen in groups of threes.
A lot of times these repetitions might seem like coincidences, but they’re not. They are signs from Heaven. They are your loved ones using repetition as a way to get your attention and let you know they are with you. It will keep happening and even drive you a little crazy because they want you to acknowledge that you get the message and know their soul is with you.
When you acknowledge the sign, you send your loved ones a signal that they can reach you in other ways. You’ll get more signs and feel them more. You will stay connected and feel the way you do when someone moves away…you don’t have to worry about them anymore, and you know you will be together again one day. That’s what your loved ones want for you.
Anything you think is a sign from your loved one is a sign. Coincidences do not happen in my world. When you receive a sign, say thank you to your loved one in Heaven. Let them know you are ready to start receiving more signs from them, and you will.

My son took his own life does that make a difference in getting messenges from him? I have yet to hear from him. It breaks my heart every day. Please help if u can
You will get the signs, my son also took his life. He passed away at 4:44 and I see it all the time and he leaves dimes.. I’m not kidding you I have a special dish in each room of my house and they are all full of the dimes I have found in that room! I don’t know what the dime means but they are so special to me. It will come. God bless you
Matt, it’s such a joy that I’m still finding pennies. Not everyday like I was before the cruise, but on a steady pattern. I always stop and hold the penny in my hand and say thank you!!!! And the overwhelming pieceful feeling I have is inspirational. Words are hard to even express it.
I am coming to see you this august at rhodes on the pawtuxet. I lost both mom and dad recently. Im going through so much and get no sighns. After reading I realized I am gettingnsighns i just didnt realize. almkst every time i look up at the clock the numbers are double. 4:44 11:11. I am ready I miss them so much and need them so much at this time. Cant wait to see u live.
Last weekend I had an experience with a dragon fly while I was telling my youngest sister about a woman who had cared for me while our mother was in the hospital. I had read this blog and whether or not Matt is correct, thinking about his ideas enhanced the memories of her for me. It landed on my chest and “visited” there for several minutes during my story. I hope it was her.
This is really interesting, You’re a very skilled blogger.

post. Also, I’ve shared your web site in my social networks!
I had a friend pass recently and I am in pain thinking of his passing because we were close at one point. I pray every night that he has found peace and I ask that he gives me a sign that he’s ok. A few days ago, I was driving through a park and smelled oranges. I thought maybe I had an orange in the car, and then it hit me that my friend loved the smell of oranges and I remember giving him an orange-scented candle at one point. Couple of days after, I was in that same park having lunch and a brown and orange butterfly (or moth,not quite sure) was sitting on my windshield. I am a huge Browns fan and he was a Steelers fan, so I had to chuckle. Yesterday, I was having lunch in the lunchroom at work and there was a penny on the table that I normally sit at. I haven’t been up there in some time because I’ve been having lunch at the park trying to find relief in my sorrow. I’ve always been a cynic of situations like this but it’s hard for me to think these are just coincidences. Deep down, I feel he is letting me know he’s ok and watching me.
My son just passed away on May 19th at 23 years old and i have a friend who says she’s a medium and she told me that even tho she’d like to do a reading for me, my son told her that he feels it’s too soon and that he didn’t think I’m ready, breed needles to say this really disappointed me and I’m desperate to know if he’s ok and if he’s still with me. I’m looking fur signs everyday, but I’m just not sure what to look for? I’m praying it happens soon, I’m sure i would be more able to accept this better if i just knew that he was still here with me and that he was ok, that he’s happy.
Anita, my experience is that many psychics – not all – will tell you to wait at least three months before a reading. Some say you aren’t ready to receive the information before then (It was extremely emotional for me) others say your child needs a little time to adjust and learn how to communicate with you.
Exactly on the three-month mark, which I’d been dreading, Bryn came to me in a dream.
My son seems to use the colour red and feathers/birds as well as a specific song he was going to sing at a school event with a friend to reach me – every time I got in my friend’s car or went to a market, the song would play. (I don’t have a radio in my house or car that actually works and I refused to accept ordinary old white pillow feathers as that seemed too easily explainable.)
I have spoken to Bryn and asked for signs and he has sent them. After reading somewhere about coins, I felt that these would be a “silly sign” as I never seem to see coins lying about, but no sooner did I express scepticism than I was handed one by a friend who spotted it on our front foorstep.
Later, there was one in my shopping basket that I couldn’t help but notice.
When my husband complained he wasn’t seeing any signs, I told him about a big kite swooping in front of my car so I had to dlam on brakes, he then commented that he’d had the same thing happen to him at around the same time. At which point, I rolled my eyes and told him to be be more aware.
On the advice of a friend, he’d posted a picture of our son to her page and was picked for a reading. One of the many things she said was that Bryn said he needed to “look for the signs as he’d been sending them, but his old man wasn’t catching on.
Have faith. I’m sure you will get signs sooner or later. Much love to you.
Hi Matt, my family and I attended your event Sunday in Foxboro, MA. We sat in the front row and were very disappointed that our loved one didn’t come through. Although you did not make contact with us, when you were close by speaking to someone in the back row you said a couple of things that made me wonder,
an injury to the back of the head, rubbing feet and St Anthony. This all made me think of my loved one who passed a year and a half ago. Could the voices be coming through and you didn’t realize maybe they were meant for me and my family ?
