Q: Crystal, i have been feeling chills not just in my home but when i have thoughts of loved ones who have passed, i don’t know how to interpret this but i have an overwhelming feeling of presence. how can i determine if this is a family member or just imagination? Thank you, Andy W.
A: Hi Andy,
Feeling chills or getting goosebumps is definitely a sign that spiritual activity is taking place. Often it is a direct sign that a spirit is close or even touching you. Other signs of a spirit being present are electric rushes in the body, the feeling that your scalp is constricting, flashing lights seen by the naked eye, and unreasonable fear, panic and anxiety.
Chills and goosebumps are also Spirit’s way of providing both validation and confirmation. For example, when I am employing my clairvoyance or intuition but am not sure precisely what I am perceiving, I will often ask a specific question and get a response in the form of chills. When this happens I know I am on the right track or that I’ve made a direct hit.
Interestingly, I am also able to identify different guides or spirit friends based on the physical sensations they give me when they appear. A lot of this comes in the form of electrical rushes and the very chills you are describing; they simply happen in particular parts of my body or in a specific manner. My recommendation to you is to start tracking your chills, documenting where, when and how they are occurring. Ask the spirits to be specific with their unique physical prompts so that you can more easily recognize them. This will help you do just that when they come again in the future.
Spirit will also use chills as a way of tapping you on the shoulder and saying, “Hey, pay attention to this.” Anytime you feel the type of chills you are describing, make sure to stop for a moment and pay careful attention to your environment and what is happening. It may be that there is something afoot that you need to notice or understand.
My guess is that the chills you are experiencing are in fact related to spirit presence, and mostly because your intuition is telling you this. As for discovering who the spirits might be, your first clue is that a lot of your chills occur when you are thinking of a particular person in spirit. This would indicate to me that you are either establishing a connection with this spirit or that your interest in them has caused them to appear in your space.
There are a variety of things you can try in order to identify a spirit, though first and foremost I always recommend addressing the spirit directly and asking it to reveal its purpose or need. If they really do want to interact with you they will attempt to answer you in some way or another.
The other thing you need to do is to be very consistent in your meditation practice. Meditation is the cornerstone of all psychic understanding and perceiving. The more time you spend in meditation, the more you will intuitively understand what is happening and who precisely is around you, and why.
I would recommend reading another Q & A article on spirit communication for a more in-depth discussion on how and why to make contact.
The reality is that we share this dimension with a vast amount of beings of differing vibration, rendering them practically invisible to most of us — but they are always there. Many of them do not perceive us due to the disparity in our vibrations, but at the same time many of them do (just as some of us here are able to see them). It simply makes sense that we would bump into these beings once in awhile, or that they’d find their way into our space and even into our homes. You happen to be quite intuitive and you not only sense their presence you physically feel it, too. This is no reason for alarm. If you’re curious, interact with the sensation and see what you find out.
I hope I have helped!
