One of the sadder facts of life is that over time, we lose touch with people. Sometimes we have a fallout and a relationship is damaged. Other times, we just drift apart. However, your intuition may sometimes clue you in that an estranged friend or relative may want to get in touch with you.
I remember once a friend and I had a fallout and didn’t speak for years. I honestly can’t remember what the disagreement was about. All I know is that it didn’t end in good terms. About five years after our friendship ended, she kept coming to mind. She had moved away and I wasn’t sure what she was doing and I even Googled her to see if any information showed online and I saw that she had launched a photography business. I contemplated reaching out, but nixed the idea.
A couple of months later, she reached out to me via Facebook. She said she’d been thinking about me for the last few months and wanting to reconnect.
Some might call it coincidence, but I don’t believe there’s any such thing. Yes, I’m one of those people who believe that everything happens for a reason and I know that I was picking up on our connection even before we got back in touch with each other.
Yes psychic ability is a form of communication
A lot of people don’t realize that psychic ability is a form of communication. When we’re in tune with our intuition, we can often connect with people without using words.
Think of the mother who knows her child is in trouble even though that child is miles and miles away. Or maybe you have a sense that your partner is becoming distant even though they are telling you that nothing is wrong. In those instances, we are receiving information from our loved ones loud and clear. It’s just that when we are in tune with our intuition, we can pick up on the thoughts and feelings of our loved ones without anyone having to say a single word.
Some of us pick up these messages though telepathy, which is a form of mind to mind communication. (You can learn more about telepathy here. )
Others pick up on the emotions of our loved ones. We may feel sad for no reason because we’re actually picking up on the sadness of a loved one. In some cases, we may even receive psychic messages from people who are no longer in our lives.
Signs an old friend wants to get in touch
So how do we recognize a psychic impression that an old friend is thinking about us and wants to reconnect? There are a number of different ways that largely depend upon the way that you experience psychic ability.
You may get a random thought.
This is what I experienced in the months before my estranged friend got back in touch. You may be going about your day and have a random thought about someone that used to be in your life. If the thought is logical, meaning you think of them because someone mentions them or you smell the cologne they used to wear, then it makes sense for them to come to mind. But if there’s no logical reason for you to think of them, it could indicate that the person is thinking of you.
One thought about the person may not mean anything special, but if you’re thinking about them frequently over a short period of time then there’s a good chance the person has you on their mind. I thought about my friend several times over the span of a couple of weeks. If this happens to you, don’t be surprised if the person you’ve been thinking about reaches out to you.
You may have a particularly powerful dream.
Dreaming is one of the most common ways that our intuition speaks to us. A friend of mine kept dreaming about her ex who she hadn’t spoken to in nearly 10 years. The ex had married and had a family so my friend didn’t think anything of the dream. A few months after the dream, my friend received a phone call from her ex. Turns out, he was divorced. Today my friend and her ex are happily married.
I always talk about the importance of keeping a dream journal so that you can keep track of your impressions. Some dream journals even have journaling prompts to help you analyze your dreams so you can figure out what they are trying to tell you.
If you dream of someone from your past and the dream is very emotional, it could be that you’re in fact picking up on that person’s feelings about you. If you have a recurring dream, it’s even more likely that you’re picking up on the thoughts or desires of the person.
You may notice synchronicities that bring them to mind.
Intuition works using signs and symbols. There are millions of stimuli begging for our attention each and every day, yet we tune into certain things. Why is it that on a road trip we notice one billboard but ignore dozens of others? There’s a reason why your attention is pulled to certain things and away from others.
When your attention is brought to something randomly, that is often a sign from the Universe. You may find that you keep hearing a song that reminds you of a person who is no longer in your life. Or maybe you keep catching their favorite movie when you’re turning the channels. If you’re getting signs that remind you of that person, the Universe is trying to get you to bring them to mind. An appearance by that person may not be too far behind.
Should you reach out to someone when you get these signs?
When I first started working with my intuition, I used to think that I should do something when I got an insight. Back in the day, if I sensed that someone was thinking about me I’d reach out. And each time they’d mention that they’d been thinking about me.
However, today, I’m a little more reticent. I simply wait and allow things to unfold. If I feel a strong urge to reach out, I do. But more often than not, I simply remain still and allow them to reach out to me. And invariably they do.
Here are some questions you might ask yourself when trying to figure out what to do:
Do I want to see this person?
Are there things left unsaid that could help me move on with my life?
Do I need closure with this person?
Could our relationship be salvaged?
Is this person toxic to me?
Would being in touch with this person set me back in my life or affect me in a negative way?
If seeing the person would help you by giving you closure or perhaps saying something that was left unsaid, this might be a good time to reach out. If seeing the person would hurt you, I’d probably rule against it. If you’re neutral about it, why not wait and just see what the Universe brings?
If you’re really unsure about what it means when you dream about or keep thinking about someone from your past, a psychic reading may help you get some clarity. Sometimes we’re too close to a situation to know whether to move forward or be still.
There’s no right or wrong answer. But when you start getting signs that someone is about to make a reappearance into your life, you typically don’t have to act. The Universe usually takes care of the details.
