DEAD LETTERS: Text Messages From The Dead


texts

by Tony Harrington

The technology that powers our smart devices is one of the fastest advancing technologies ever. Many of us remember the days before text messaging when the only thing cellular phones could do was make and receive calls. 

Then came voicemail, text messaging, games (Snake anyone?), multimedia messaging, camera technology, and faster processors. Now, phones are mostly handheld computers that allow us to communicate with one another without ever having to make a call.

In fact, it is probably a safe assumption to assume that a majority of people prefer texting or interacting on social media sites versus actually having a vocal conversation.
It should come as no surprise then that, in this day and age, more and more people are reporting that their cell phones are being used as a means through which the dead can communicate.
I was not aware this was a thing until I had mentioned to someone at work that I am a paranormal investigator and that I maintain this blog. As is always the case, this opened up a line of dialogue, mostly filled with “what if” scenarios, until the person eventually feels comfortable enough to present me with a personal experience they have had and ask for my opinion on just what it is they are experiencing.
In the case of my co-worker, she had come into possession of her mother’s old iPhone when her mother died. Because she had no need for the phone, she allowed her young daughter to have it as a toy as the daughter was not yet old enough to be given an actual functioning phone.
One night, after my co-worker and her husband had put their daughter to bed, the young girl came into their room and said that the phone was making weird noises.
The phone was not on a data plan and there was no service. It did have a wi-fi capabilities, but allegedly they had never connected the phone to the wireless router. The only thing the phone could do, according to my co-worker, was play certain games that didn’t require an internet connection.
The father takes the girl back to bed and checks the phone. The noise the young girl had been hearing was a text alert. There was three messages on the phone.
  • “Still here”
  • “Love”
  • “Beautiful girl”
The messages came across with a three minute pause between each message. The text message was received by a phone number made up of all nines.
Now, there are many reasons this could happen. The internet is filled with many sites that allow you to send an SMS message to someone’s phone as long as you know the number. But the phone technically requires the number to be active for the message to be received. According to my co-worker, the number had not been active for three months.
To test this theory, we dialed the phone number thought to be disconnected. While it did not ring, it did go straight to voicemail. After the voicemail picked up the co-worker said, “That is strange”.
That evening, after work, my co-worker texts me to let me know the phone got another text message. This one said “Strange”.
Immediately I realized what was happening.
It seemed that calls to the disconnected phone number were being forwarded to voicemail, a separate number apparently, and callers were leaving messages. Those messages were being transcribed by an app on the phone and delivered to the phone via an installed messenger service sort of like visual voicemail.
My co-worker called the voicemail and heard the four messages that were delivered by text. She recognized the last message as the one we left, but she swears that the three other messages sound just like her mother who passed prior to the dates the messages were left.
There are some wildcard variables to take into consideration:
  • I can’t say for certain that the phone is not connected to some wi-fi connection. I am not personally there when these events happened.
  • I don’t know what my co-worker’s mother sounds like so I can authenticate the voice on the voicemail as belonging to the deceased woman
  • It is possible to spoof/mask numbers, so the calls could be coming from someone the family knows or from the family themselves to perpetuate this story.
  • As a fan of Andorid OS, I can say with certainty, I have no idea how the iPhone works or if what I suspected about how the texts were delivered is even possible using the iPhone.
It should also be noted that the young daughter is ten, and quite tech savvy, as most young kids are these days having grown up with the technology.
I share this story only as a way to introduce the topic of a modern paranormal phenomenon that I call “Texts From the Dead”; an obvious homage to the old school “Phone Calls From the Dead”.
Classifying this phenomenon, if it is indeed real and happening is somewhat difficult. It is definitely displaying signs of an intelligent haunting; interacting with technology and those who use it. It also seems a modern twist on “Electronic Voice Phenomenon”; the ability to catch disembodied voices responding to questions on an audio recording device.
Additionally, cell phones contain built-in dictionaries. How else do they know how to jack up your intended message with hilarious auto-correct fails? There are apps that have been developed based on the notion that the dead can manipulate the phone’s dictionary to pull words with which to respond to questions.  So, it is not uncommon for people to use their phones as a means by which to communicate with those who have passed on.
In researching this article, I was surprised to see that this phenomenon has stories dating back a few years, some as far back as the early 2000s. It would seem that since the advent of the ability to make and receive texts, the dead have been taking advantage of it.
It is still fascinating to see the rise of a new type of paranormal activity, though it remains to be seen if these cases are valid, or simply wishful thinking.
There are many reasons weird text messages could show up on your phone. Pocket texts, the silent version of the pocket-dial can result in some creepy messages from potentially unknown numbers. The ability to compose messages using speech-to-text could cause weird messages to show up on your phone, some of the random words could have significant meaning for you and hence you draw a parallel between a random rogue message and a significant aspect of someone who has died.
Some instances of Texts From the Dead come about not from actual received messages, but random notes left on a user’s phone. Notes they did not type but somehow occupy a text box.
These are easier to explain away though as the message originated on the users phone and could be a prank, a voice-to-text feature being unknowingly activated and capturing random bits of dialogue, a phone in a pocket or a purse being jostled around enough to create a message of some sort.
Regardless of how the messages got on the phone, there is a certain subset of people, and that subset grows every day as people encounter this bizarre phenomenon, who believe that they are receiving texts from those who have passed on. I have always said, that even if I don’t believe that ghosts are the culprit, it is very real to those who encounter something they deem paranormal, and I respect them enough to listen and try to determine just what is happening.

Are the living receiving messages from beyond the grave through modern technology? What do you think? Have you encountered texts from the dead? Please share your story in our comments section.

    Absolutely ! Ghost can munipulate electronics . I was giving a reading via text and as I was typing I kept typing the number 12 and the number 11 kept showing up after the third time correcting it and it still showing up 11 ,
    I said ok I give and just left it .
    Well it turned out that the number 11 was much more of an impact with her and the rest of the message then the number 12 , which also meant something to her but not near as much as the 11.
    Spirit intervention ? I thought so ….

    • Sandyi:

      It amazes me how crafty the spirit world can be at times! I wonder, if when we pass, we learn all there is to know about how things work. I can’t imagine older people who have passed before the advent of such technology would have familiarity enough with cell phones to manipulate them.

  2. I have a small antique restoration and do all kinds of work. I was contracted to build a small box to hold the remains of a mans mother after she was cremated. This was going to be the box in which she would remain throughout eternaty. I forgot his name so I enterd it in my cell phone as cremation box followed by his phone number. I did this so I could call him when the work was done and I could arrange delivery. I am a little strange and felt honnered that he wanted me to build the box that would be seen by all at the service and his mothers ashes would stay in forever. Anyway, the work was complete and the box delivered and the service was attended well when out of the blue I get a call from “cremation box” on my cell phone. I thought maybe the box had turned out to have a flaw and was being rejected. I answered and all I got was static. “Oh well,” I thought, “Must have butt dialed me.” No problem, it happens. Two weeks later the same call comes through on my phone. Once again I answer and get nothing but static. Strange it happens again later. This time I decide maybe someone is trying to say thank you so I talk to the static and say, “You are welcome.” The phone calls stopped and I feel that all is well. This is not the only time I have recieved calls form beyond. Another story later perhaps.

    • Thank you for sharing this story. It amazes me daily, the types of odd events people encounter with brushes with the paranormal.

      Perhaps you are correct, that someone was reaching out to you to thank you for the lovely box.

      Feel free to share any story you want! Spirit Seekers is your baby!

      For those not in the know, weparabolists is the username for Alan Lowe, co-founder of SPIRIT Seekers. He is one of my best friends and pretty much allows me to write any kind of article I want.

    • steve says:

      That static your listening to is a condensed message! You need an Audio editor and slow it down, and listen.. You will be shocked!

  3. Peter Miles says:

    Alan’s story is weird. Not scary, not even conclusive but definitely thought provoking. But I do think this is an area where real, solid, conclusive proof is unlikely to come soon, if ever.

    • Unless we see a cell phone bill from the other side, I am assuming that you are correct in your conclusion.

      Technology is a bit wonky to begin with, add to that the fact that some people’s comprehension of the technology isn’t always top notch, and we are left with a lot of gray area in which to fill in gaps with a lot of “what ifs”.

      I am intrigued by the idea of the dead using our modern technology to interact with us, but I am also, as always, very skeptical of it.

  4. Wren says:

    Please help me understand.I Can’t believe what happened to me tonight! I was in my kitchen & my boyfriend were talking & doing dishes. His Cell phone was next to us on the counter & we heard the sound of the letters when you tap the letters to text & then the sound you have set for notification. We of course looked & it was a message for me & it was in the box where you write a text, not receiving a text. Some words were all jumbled & others clear. It dares start the message with my name Clear, the message try ing to tell me something about my dad that committed Suicide 5 years ago, it says he is sorry & somthing about episodes & asking me to change somthing, I have no idea what any of it means. Please is there anyone that has experienced this? Is there anyone who is able to help me??

    • Wren:

      There are many people who have had these type of experiences, you are not alone.

      while I personally have not received such a message from the other side, there are multitudes out there who swear that it has happened to them.

      Messages from the dead are typically ones of peace and designed to help you move on. It can be to apologize for a wrong that was done or to let you know that they are okay.

      The means by which they choose to communicate is irrelevant. Some get weird phone calls or voicemails. Others get “visitation dreams” while some receive contact through psychic mediums.

      It can definitely be overwhelming, very emotional, and a little scary.

      It sounds like you most definitely received contact from the other side.

      If you have doubts, that is healthy. It is good to be skeptical. Ensure the phone was not in any place that the buttons could have been pressed accidentally. ensure the phone didn’t have a technical glitch. See if you can recreate it in anyway.

      If you are certain that you can rule out any natural explanation, then you are most likely left with a supernatural occurrence.

      If you have any questions, feel free to post them.

      Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

  6. Pete Dale says:

    Well I have text messaging on my phone but it is something I seldom use but the other morning I unlocked my phone and there was a message it said ” I miss you very much” and then the message was gone I never heard this message come in I looked everywhere in that phone for this message along with it’s phone number but absolutely nothing so where did it come from my wife died over 5 years ago,would be interested to know other peoples thoughts.

    • Pete:

      Thank you for sharing your story. I am sorry you lost your wife, but it is believed that those who have crossed over do indeed try to send us messages, and sometimes they succeed. That message may come in the form of a visitation dream, through technology such as phones and radios, or through messages from a psychic-medium.

      As shocking as it had to be to receive such a message, you should embrace tha it happened.

      • peter dale says:

        Thanks for your reply It was strange to receive an unknown message it did not worry me at all I believe our loved one’s are around but in another dimension it is those that are living and breathing that we need to fear the most not those who have passed on.

  7. Jacqui Nicholson says:

    I had a much more profound experience with no question it really happened.
    In 2012 my boyfriends brother shot himself through the head and even tho the bullet went in & out he lived for 3 weeks albeit in a coma in intensive care. About 7 hours after shooting the dr had visited him and called a meeting of all family members for his diagnosis in the waiting room. I was busy texting my friend but put the cell off and 10 minutes later when I switched it back on therewas a complete text written in the box as if to my friend and not sent. Here is what it said… Keeping in mind this is an iPhone and there are different menus for the alphabet and brackets/full stops so you have to navigate back and forth between the onscreen menus. No ways I could have written this accidentally. Here goes….
    ‘How was the only solution is there tomorrow… (In the sun… Where are our lives and stop this sucks…’
    This honestly happened to me. The complete truth. Not the first time I have had some kind of message from the dead (or close to), but always on the day of death and completely different experiences. This one was via an iPhone. I cannot explain or make these things happen, they just do… Maybe I am receptive or something??

    • Jacqueline,

      Thank you for sharing your story. I have no doubt that what you experienced actually happened to you and I thank you for sharing your story with us.

      You very well may be open to receiving messages of this sort, therefore you do indeed receive messages from beyond.

      Your story is incredibly unique in the sense that you received the message from someone who apparently was on the brink of transitioning from this plane to the next.

      Thank you again for stopping by and sharing your story!

  8. My name is Alyssa Williams from wellston Ohio. My phone has been sending a bizarre message over and over to my mother. It always starts out saying please help me! I’m in longitude and latitude help me please ! It started this afternoon and keeps sending every few hours but no one had touched the phone during the times it sent . I’m a mother of two young children it is very creepy ….. What is happening with my phone ? I’m super creeped out can you tell me whats going on ?

    • Sandyi says:

      Yes ! That can be creepy , but it sounds as though a spirit is reaching out . Ask out loud how can I help ?
      Or if you feel to overwhelmed then ask them to please leave you alone you can not help !
      You can visualize putting a white light around you this will give you a calm feeling .
      If possible please try to help this spirit , it takes a lot for a spirit to reach out . 😀
      I will help if I can you can email me
      Frangimoon@ yahoo.com

      • I would like to piggyback on Sandyi’s post here and offer up a few suggestions.

        For starters, phones can be tricky.

        1) I would want to know if we are dealing with a landline phone or a cell phone. Which type of phone are the calls coming from?

        2) Are the calls coming at various times of the day or are they coming at the same time each day.

        3) It could be some kind of robo-dialer with a weird message playing that is spoofing your number.

        3) If your phone is a cellphone, check the outbound call logs to determine of the calls your mother is receiving were actually dialed from your device. If you don’t see a record of the outbound calls on your device (if a cellphone) then someone could be spoofing your number.

        4) See if you can get a recording of the messages coming through to your mother from your phone.

        5) Contact your carrier and let them know what you are experiencing and see if they can research the issue.

        It is possible that there is a paranormal explanation for what you are encountering, however, before jumping directly to that we should ensure we rule out any natural phenomenon.

        It will put your mind at ease knowing there is a logical explanation for this seeming creepy and odd phenomenon.

        Feel free to ask questions, I work in the telecom industry. 🙂

        It is written that Gods name will protect us from unwanted sports , just say it out loud and ask Jahova God for production and surround you with his loving white light. I had some horrible dreams once with satin and I truly believe that , that’s what kept me safe.

  9. Phil D says:

    Last night my girlfriend sent me a text that on her end said one thing, but when it got to me it said something different halfway through the text. What was inserted into the text was something she had said to me over the phone about a week before. She had never text those words to anyone before. How does that happen? She knows she has a spirit at her father’s house, but it has never done anything before outside of the house. She didn’t live in that house for over 10 years and had no experiences. She recently moved back in. Typically it just turns on music and computers. This was a conversation she had with me outside of the house. Is their a technical explanation?

    • Phil:

      I am not sure how technical of an explanation you are looking for. The only thing I can think of is that during the call where she spoke the words to you, her phone captured those words in a text message draft using the speech-to-text function of the phone. That snippet was then inserted into a text message she sent you.

      Is that a possibility? Sure. Likely? Sort of. Definite? Not particularly.

      When it comes to cell phones and what they are capable of doing, it becomes tricky to determine if what happens is natural or something more.

      Whenever I encounter a paranormal or supernatural phenomenon, I always skew toward a logical explanation first. If there is no logical explanation, then and only then do I lean toward the paranormal as an explanation.

      So, ultimately, it is up to you to decide for yourself if what you experienced was a spirit taking the spoken words of your girlfriend and transcribing them into a text message, or if it is simply the phone’s built in ability to do that very thing.

      Regardless, thank you for stopping by and sharing your experience. Whether natural or supernatural, the experience is very real and possibly frightening/fascinating to you. That is something we here at The Spirit Seekers will never judge or doubt.

      Thank you again!

      • Phil D says:

        Thank you for the response. She never actually text me or anyone else those words before. They were from a spoken conversation we had over the phone nearly a week before. She has a known spirit in her home. It regularly turns on electronics, even plays music on her computer. I’m having a real hard time explaining how a text she sent to me got changed before it got me using words she’s only spoken and never text. Her phone does not have any call recording software. I agree with you, when logic doesn’t apply, keep an open mind.

    • Lesa Soman says:

      It is written that Gods name will protect us from unwanted sports , just say it out loud and ask Jahova God for production and surround you with his loving white light. I had some horrible dreams once with satin and I truly believe that , that’s what kept me safe.

      Be careful of those kinds of sports. I lived in a house for 10 years and I know I had a sport there, I could see it walking around it looked like heat waves . It use to hide things from me then started ony husband, it would throw things hard at me in our gorage . But the worst was it would put blood splatters all over my walls and floors. It wasn’t until my neighbor came in with me after shopping and my whole kitchen and hallway was full. All she said is don’t day a word. And we cleaned it up , but sometimes it would reaper as we wiped it off. But we moved and so far so good.

      • Sandyi says:

        Wow ! This story is a little unsettling but I have to say for the most part Of the stories on Dead letters it is from loved ones reaching out to say hello and let them know they are very much alive and still around .
        Thank you for sharing your story .

  10. Lacie says:

    Several days ago my daughter and I were talking about what “SOS” meant. Yesterday my husband and his sister received text messages stating “SOS” “I NEED HELP!”, random photos taken, and a voice record that was sent from my brother n laws phone. There was no evidence of such texts being sent from his phone. I am highly “sensitive” in all areas. My husband shows me the texts they recieved. When I took the phone to look at them I felt a nervous vibration, even caused my hands to shake. It got bad when I played the recording. What I heard was the same whooshing sound I hear (as I am clairaudient) and interference with the speaker but seemed like it was backwards. After clearing out my own personal thoughts about it I was able to get a somewhat clear message. My husband is a very big skeptic, but the words flowed anyway. It’s like I had no control. I told him he could listen and do what I said to be safe or he could brush it off, the choice was his. I was meant to see those texts. If anyone close to him, his sister or brother n law wasn’t doing well they had better check on them. As soon as I said this the nervous vibration I felt went away instantly.

    I just received a Facebook message from my Grandmother who passed in June 2014. It was a “thumbs up” emoji. I replied and seen that the message were received and “seen” by someone but no reply to my reply. I called the only two people I know have her password and both were as shocked as me. I have no idea what it is but it’s kinda creeping me out.

    • Kathy says:

      Oh… ahaha… To creep you out was not the intent. To figure out what she’s trying to say, consider what’s going on in your life. Something she’s pleased with and supports you. She doesn’t have a physical body but that doesn’t make her love you any less. Just smile.

  12. Cheyenne p says:

    Mother in law passed in jan and last text from her was early dec.
    Yesterday my text opened scrolled to her name and typed “53 bye” strange, didn’t think about it much. Today, happened again. “53 bye”

    I opened a blank text and hit the voice to text button and laid it in an empty room. I said “tell me anything, talk to me.” I came back a few minutes later to this. …

    Fern ended Ottawa you didn’t none of didn’t didn’t do too nude Vernor inform 3rd any Ernie in bomb mom tell dad dad dad s is an idiot e.t.a is a new nunzio’s seen uh uh uh uh air
    I dk what any of this means, but it is weird.

    • Sandyi says:

      I am curious is “53” significant to you ?
      Did she pass at 53 or would she have been 53
      Or maybe maybe May 3 rd ?( 5/3)
      It takes a lot
      Of energy for a spirit to munipulate and get messages out .
      I have had experienced before where a spirit will basically piggy back another spirit .
      What that means is a spirit coming through is stronger so another spirit will jump in at same time which can create confusing messages .

    I have had a few psychic events in my time. Enough to research why they happening (Jung the psychologist had good theories)
    So I woke up this Saturday and checked my phone. Much to my surprise the result of a match yet to be played was displayed there (2:2)
    Either I got rid of it or it disappeared- but it seemed right. I don’t bet much so I placed £30 on the result (25 on line and £5 in shop: I still have the ticket and the online is recorded)
    I told a couple of friends who looked askance but benignly at me prior to the match. They now say ‘it’s weird’ but amazing.
    I have won about £400. My question is -what the heck is going on? Who or what is sending me the results of matches before they happen?
    My Dad died last year so may have something to do with it, I nearly died as a very young baby which may account for the veil of afterlife being a bit thin sometimes. However, most of my past ‘feelings’ more related to bad things happening (see Jung and book by Michael Bentine one of the ex goons)
    I have had a few intuition wins on bets but never phone alerts before
    Science says energy is never lost so my belief is an energy is helping but I have sense not supposed to ‘milk it’ just accept as I accept other occurrences in life

  14. Tara says:

    My sons father and I were going through a nasty custody battle in February 2015, 2 years after we got out of a 5 year relationship. He was an army and navy veteran and fought in Iraq and Afghanistan (before me) and had PTSD. We got along pretty good after we broke up for about a year ago a half. Suddenly out of nowhere he accused me of saying things that I didn’t say, doing things I didn’t do, being a horrible mother and a danger to our son. He wouldn’t let me see my son and refused to even talk to me about it. Then drug me into court and used all of these things to get my son from me with only supervised visits- wouldn’t compromise- period. I had to pay child support and they were really slow getting the only payment to him and that was the only reason he really called me after that (n not friendly calls, either). 4 days after that call, he committed suicide. I never stopped loving him and he knew that even though it had been almost 2 years, I still wasn’t over him n it really seemed to irritate him but I know now that he was sick because he never got so mean or hateful to me before. Anyway about 2 months after he passed away, I found a long, rambling text message in my inbox from the attorney general (child support office) landline! I broke that phone so I don’t have it unfortunately now to recall exactly what it said, but every word was a word of apology and remorse and comfort. It was something like “I’m sorry but I could not be but I did want trying to be good and didn’t want but tried to be the best…” I know that it was him and I convinced myself that I was crazy and just saw it how I wanted to n it was a mistake or something- until I had a visitation dream a month or so later… I know now that he’s with me and my son everyday and I have a lot of peace now!

    • Tara:

      Thank you for sharing your story with us. I know how difficult things had to seem at the time, and how difficult it was to rationalize what happened with your ex-husband.

      The way things work in this world are completely different than how they work in the spirit world.

      Many psychics and spiritualists agree that the anger, confusion, grief, and sadness that is a part of our life does not exist when we transition to the afterlife.

      It is not uncommon for spirits to reachout to those they have wronged to ease the burden.

      If you are open to receiving such messages they can be monumental in helping you reach closure.

      Accepting the apology from those who have crossed on is as important as it is for the departed to seek your forgiveness.

      I hope that you continue to experience the peace you have gained from this encounter.

      Thank you for stopping by and sharing your encounter here at the Spirit Seekers Blog.

        I recently lost my wife on April 25th. She passed in bed next to me. Once news hit the family her fathers girlfriend had told me she had awakened at 4:42am that morning and could not go back to sleep. Days had passed and the time really stuck with me cause I woke up at 5:45am. I have 8 night vision cameras set up to monitor the house and property. I decided to investigate the time. Every time I play that date and time of 4:44.18 secs different cameras go out, sometimes 2 at a time , sometimes 4,6 or all. 4 cameras are on separate power supply along with the other 4 and DVR all on seperates supply’s. No time lapses occurred , just ever time I play the recorder different cameras are going out(black)!! How can this be it is recorded. Since date of her loss I have disabled the overite, so it won’t ruin data. I struggled, very suicidal !! 2 weeks to date of my wife’s passing,on may 9th, my mother in law who stays with my grandmother and helps take care of her, as me and my wife Haden past. She gets a picture on her phone ,of my wife as a child. She said it only appeared long enough to see it, she tried to save it and it disappeared. She thought I had sent it and has asked me to resend it. I ignored her cause I didn’t know what she was talking about. Then she called me and asked me to send it and explained everything.Hours later my daughter calls me asking if I’m playing a joke. I said no why? She explains she got a text from her moms phone telling her to Call House. I was home that day in pretty bad shape. I told her it wasn’t me cause her moms phone was off in my top dresser drawer. So I’m shaken, I go to dresser turn on phone and sure enough a message was sent from phone at around 4:42pm to my daughters phone that’s said call house. Approximately 7:00 that night I’m texting with a friend and the message that came in was a message from my wife, it stated Chris I’m not dying; later that evening around 9:00pm my wife’s grandmother is watching the news and get a message on her 60 in big screen on the top that goes across and says Kate is ok . Katherine being my wife’s name. I’m so confused and don’t want to stay here anymore, especially knowing I could go be with my wife. We were soul mates and her being gone is literally killing me, looking for answers

        Chris, I’m so sorry for the loss of your wife. The spirits of our loved ones can be very creative with messages. I applaud you for recognizing them. It takes alot of effort on their part. No your wife didn’t die. Her physical body did but her spirit is alive and well. Everlasting life is real. While I do not like labels, I have abilities to recieve messages from spirit. All messages have the same purpose. Make peace. When it’s your time, she wants you to be at peace with life so you will have nothing to hold your spirit here and you both will be together again.

  15. Chris:

    First and foremost, I am so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine the amount of pain losing your soulmate can cause. I don’t have any magical words to take away that pain. You need to allow yourself to grieve though, go through the stages, that will ultimately lead to acceptance.

    With that said, I do want to address some of the experiences you have encountered.

    Many psychics and spiritualists agree that that when we pass on, the energy that comprised our existence is released out into the world. Some believe that the energy is sentient, and contains the thoughts, memories, and emotions of the person whose earthly shell it resided in.

    Over time that energy will dissipate and move on. It is believed that during this initial time out in the ether, the energy, or spirit, of the departed can reach out to us and communicate with us. Be it through visitation dreams, manifestation as an apparition, or by using technology to reach out to those they have left behind, those who cross over most definitely want to let you know that they are okay and that they want you to be okay.

    It is believed that it takes a lot for a spirit to make its presence known. If they reach out to you, know that it is coming from a place of love and acceptance.

    I know plenty of psychics who state that time in the afterlife/hereafter is not at all like it is here. That it is but a blink of an eye. So, while it is cruel that time passes so slowly here, that in the spirit world it is just a blink of an eye when you will be rejoined with those who have crossed over.

    If your wife passed unexpectedly, you may feel like you didn’t have a chance to say goodbye. That is why she is reaching out to you now in any way possible. She wants you to know she is with you, and she knows you can feel her. She hears you when you talk to her, and she is providing you answers.

    None of what you and your family is experiencing is malicious or cruel. It is exactly what you hope for, proof that the spirit continues and that it is aware.

    Over time, these encounters will slowly go away, so while you are able, acknowledge them, let your wife know you have received her messages and that it is okay for her to move on. As much as you want to continue to interact with her, she needs to know that you are okay and that you will continue to live without her, as painful as it seems right now.

    You have work left to do here. You matter to people and your life is precious. You are stronger than you know and you have to fight through this darkness to emerge in the light.

    If you want to speak with a psychic, I can put you in touch with someone who will speak to you for free. Let me know if you need assistance in any way.

    Chris ,
    There are never words that can replace the hurt and pain you are feeling at the moment .
    I am very sorry to hear about your wife .
    I don’t have all the answers but I have been a Spiritual counselor /Medium for over 20 years and what you are describing sounds like the classic senerio of things that take place after a loved one has departed .

    Hi I was seeking answers about spirits texting and ran across this thread. If anything for Chris I can say I also lost my soul mate and that’s when the messages (texting and emails) began. Its been over 5 years and the messages have not stopped. Sometimes it is comforting as I can reply and get messages back of conscious clear conversations. Other times its more scary as you aren’t expecting it and you have to pretend to others around that you are okay and not talking to one that no longer has a physical body or is in this dimension. Sometimes its almost like riddles and you feel crazy trying to understand. But now its like my soul mate doesn’t want me to move on and date so I am struggling with how to handle the messages now.

    I am in a like minded Group I meet with weekly but this is beyond their knowledge and they think I’m dreaming it and/or don’t know how to help me. It’s hard to admit something so special can be this overwhelming. I have worked really hard on intuition and taken workshops with James Van Praagh and I felt good about everything but its become overwhelming again when the messages appear upset or hand written messages are left for the living guy I want to date. My “Group” says I manifest the letters myself but I feel there is free will involved in the spirit communication.

    I was reading the thread message from Tony saying that over time these encounters will slowly go away but its been over 5 years and its still strong encounters. Now they are not as frequent as the beginning but still very much clear texts that can be responded to but only for a matter of a few minutes as it does appear it takes a lot of energy for spirit contact.

    I have only seen his whole apparition twice but we have secret words no one knows about so I know its him and not random pranks of texting and emails for 5 years. Maybe I was wrong to reply to all the messages and I am keeping him here as we both miss each other but now I don’t know what to do.

    • Jennifer:

      It sounds like you just need a good old-fashioned break-up. I am no expert on relationships, but ultimately, it can be unhealthy to continue carrying on conversations with someone who can’t let go. Even if they are no longer here and it is their spirit interacting with you.

      You both need closure. Close yourself to receiving messages. Delete them from your phone as they come in, and do yourself a favor and allow yourself to move on.

      Tell your former partner that he has to move on and find peace and that while you will always love him, you have to be able to live your life on this plane, a plane on which he no longer resides.

      Only when you are able to move on and no longer hold him here, will he be able to let you go.

      I am sure it will be sad, but it is something you have to do if you ever want to move on.

      I do want to address these “Hand-written letters” your potential dates are receiving.

      In order for them to receive these letters we have to assume that a spirit can physically obtain paper, a writing implement, put that implement to the paper and physically construct a sentence, then deliver the letter to the intended recipient, all without a physical body.

      The spirit world does’t work like that. If it did, there would be no doubt about the existence of the paranormal.

      Interacting with spirits is often confusing and convoluted and never as concise as the sudden appearance of a handwritten note.

      Either you are writing them in a type of catatonic state where you are unaware of what you are doing, or someone else is doing it and setting you up.

      Whatever is happening, you can ultimately end it by allowing your former partner to find peace and move on by giving them permission to do so and letting them know that you don’t need them anymore.

      Consider reaching out to a medium who can perhaps connect you to your loved one and facilitate the closure of your relationship. It sounds like you are ready emotionally, you just have to become ready spiritually.

      Thank you for stopping by and sharing your experiences with us!

      Sincerely,

        I have to completely agree with Tony on this matter .
        Letting go is one of the hardest things humans have to endure . You might have to be strong for both of you , and tell this loved one he needs to move on ,5 years of earth time is long . You need closure and so does this loved one . It was this loved ones time to go and move on . We as humans can only speculate what happens when we transition to the other side . But in all my years of working with people and spirits one of the most important lessons we learn is about letting go . If not then we
        Do not really live the life we are truly meant to live.
        Lessons we need to learn, people that will come into your life . All of this can be hampered by just being stuck . And this goes the same for spirits . Our Universe is Vast and so much is out there to encounter and experience , in our earth life and in spirit world . Our Ego is what keeps us from moving on . Let your spirit and the one of your loved one speak to each other and say your good byes .
        You two will again meet up one day . Don’t cheat your self out of this earth life . Letting go does not mean forgetting it is a step for you a growth for your spiritual progress . 😊

    When home alone a message appeared in spilt pepper on my counter saying HERE,I know it was my recently departed husband.

  20. Elaina says:

    Spirits can be very crafty with their communication with the living- most still have something to correct/do. Some even have a few things to say… which explains this almost perfectly. If it is a daemon or anger or even just a lonely spirit, let then enjoy the afterlife!!!!!!👻👻👻

  21. Michelle says:

    I’m hoping someone can give me some guidance or advice…im sorry this is long, I’m cutting some things out but here’s the gist…
    I used to own a stereo that I took to college with me and kept in my dorm room. One day after turning the stereo on, I walked away and the volume turned itself all the way up. I would walk back and turn it back down, as soon as I walked away the volume would go back up. This continued the rest of the time I owned this stereo. I tried to never use it because of obvious reasons. But when I graduated my mom kept my stereo. It worked fine for her, unless I came over and tried to use it and the same volume issue would happen again. We eventually got rid of it but now the volume phenomena had switched over to her brand new tv! When I would come home and watch with her the volume for the tv would turn all the way up. Eventually got rid of that tv too.
    Fast forward to now…I’ve been out of the house for couple of years and occasionally come to visit and have had very strange experiences at my new home (like my cat waking me up In the middle of the night howling and chasing air, some sleep paralysis, and other weird things) but things are even stranger at my moms home. On this particular trip I have a cable box in my room that I don’t use (I don’t watch tv anymore) but my mom keeps it plugged in just in case…the cable box keeps turning itself on at random times at night. I only know because the blue light comes on like someone just turned it on this usually happens between 12-3am but the time changes every night and some nights it never turns on. You can rule out the remote because it stays on a table by itself. Yesterday I unplugged it because of this. I was having a hard time sleeping, finally fell asleep at 3, woke up at 3:55 and immediately after I woke up i got a text from my boyfriend saying “oh lol did you have any dreams or visions?” Earlier in the day I was meditating and he sent me this text after I finished. I asked him why are you texting me that again at 4am? He texted back and said he was sleeping and that text doesn’t even come up on his phone.
    Now…maybe I’m reading too much into all of these things, but is it possible that someone is trying to communicate and used texts after I turned the cable box off? I also think the text that was sent was an extremely creepy one to send at the time, no?

    • Michelle,

      This is a lot to process, and I am not sure I can answer to all the points you raise.

      I can say, with some certainty as I too seem to send electronics into chaos, that some people have some type of energy that just wreaks havoc on electronic devices.

      My friends will be watching Netflix or regular TV…everything is fine until I walk in the room, then everything freezes and has to be shut down and restarted.

      This also happens more frequently if I get mad.

      I think you just might be putting out strong electromagnetic energy that interferes with these devices.

      If you research this phenomenon it is usually associated with individuals who claim to possess psychic abilities such as pre-ignition or being able to communicate with the deceased.

      Which, could account for the strange text messages you received.

    Yes,Old fb messages I never erased from my boyfriend before he passed,that I regularly read were being marked as seen ,then when I would talk to my boyfriend in my mind ,answers would be tagged with a date from prior message ,multiple times ,I’d send good morning hugs and kisses and a previous message sometimes a few would be tagged with that date and time i sent the message good morning baby,hugs and kisses ,whatever he wants to say ,he taggs with the date of the word,I get many visits regularly and when he first passed he showed me a cell phone and I was sending him a TeX message ,I feel him touch me he always with me and has fun changing things around that I’m sending ,he has changed colors and sizes of things I TeX out ,changes the order I send out ,he protected me my whole life ,we havevloved each other since we were kids ,7 and 10 first loves at 12 and 17 for 5 yrs ,he found me in 2011 we loved each other our whole life but married other people .

    I have a smart phone through boost mobile and i was texting my son the other day and when i got done the phone’s screen went black so i just put it back in my pocket and drove home. When i arrived back home i got the phone back out and was going to send my son another text, but when the screen lit back up it was still ready to send another text to my son but there was already a text message prepared for me and was ready to be sent but i don’t know how it typed out a text by it’s self. The text read ( it’s all about the money) my brother passed away 5 months ago and he was worried about money problems and was afraid the family wouldn’t be able to come up with enough to have him burried rather than creamated. We have also been having some paranormal activities going on inside my house and all though we have always had issues with some type of spirit,but this one seems to have a different personality, one that i feel pretty strong about it being that of my brother because it would do things that seemed to be things that my brother did when he was alive.

  24. David Treasure says:

    Hi,
    Ive been searching online for ages to find experiences similar to my own so that I can share it. This seems like the best bet.

    2005, and a relationship with my girlfriend was in the last stages of a reluctant breakup. She was and still is a beautiful person with a great soul, bursting with spirituality.
    During her previous relationship she had 2 abortions (at the insistence of her dad) causing her great heartache.
    I”ll mention that the phone I was using was my mums old motorolla. A monster of a thing, about half of it was all battery, yellow screen, huge pixels. Only 4 lines of screen 12 characters across. The old style key pad where if you want, say the letter ‘L’ you gotta hit key 5, 3 times.
    This night, She was at her parents house, 2 hours away from me. We had been texting each other all night and was late so we said goodnight and went to sleep.
    In the morning she gave me a call, “what was that last text you sent all about?”
    me; “umm, that i love you and goodnight.”
    “Nah, I saw it this morning and it was half an hour after that”
    me; “I didnt send any other f&*kin message.” laughing at her
    “you DID! Hang up, LOOK at your phone, then call me back”
    So, chuckling smugly to myself, thinking she was losing it. Went to messages, oh ok there’s one there, I opened it and this is (as close as memory serves me) what it said…

    ‘think you are ready for happening changes
    always mum’

    We chatted about it briefly without coming to an agreed conclusion. I have always felt, very strongly that it was her Baby Spirit connecting with its Mum, through me before we left each other. That day was in fact when we went our separate ways.
    It will be hard for some people to believe, there will be ‘explanations’ banded about, but i feel it in my heart and soul. Writing the above message has me covered in goosebumps still. Thanks for letting me share my experience

  25. G Braswell says:

    I have gotten several text notifications from my deceased father … It’s just the notification and then no message … He has been dead for 7 years this week … And I got another text notification from him last night . I’ll never delete his contact info from my phone because I love hearing from him! At first I thought it was a weird fluke … But now, I do think that it could be him 🙂

  26. Tami says:

    I’ve had multiple experiences with texts from the other side, but I’m curious to know if anyone has had an ongoing conversation in texts? I’ve had the random messages, but also an hour long texting back & forth. It was very unnerving (to say the least) at the time, but in retrospect, it was a positive experience.

  27. Tami says:

    I used to get text messages from a friend’s deceased mother who was trying to help him thru the process of dying. I never met his mom prior to our friendship, she had already passed, but they would come from his phone number to my phone while he was sleeping. Strangest thing was there was never any record of the messages being sent on his phone, only mine. For over a year, I received them and they stopped after he passed away. Then I got an hour long conversation in texts with the other side from someone else’s phone. I was able to ask questions & receive answers. Needless to say, I was pretty freaked out about an entire conversation. Again, I received them while the owner of the phone was sleeping and alone with no record of them being sent from their phone to mine. I questioned all of the incidences, because honestly, this is a lot to swallow, but there were consistencies in all the texts. No punctuation is used, the sentences ate incomplete & thoughts run together, so you have to figure out where to break in the messages to understand what they’re trying to convey. In both cases, a warning was issued. The first came to pass & happened, the second will not happen until January of 2017. I’ll keep you posted. I would have been hard pressed to believe any of this, until it happened to me.

  28. Deb says:

    I believe that I’ve been receiving messages from a deceased loved one thru my wallpaper app.
    It started out as I would discuss particular things with coworkers, friends, etc and pics of those particular subjects discussed would appear in my wallpaper app the next day. Then I noticed unique pics in wallpaper app that resembled items in my house. I then would ask out loud or to myself for spirit to send me pics of something in particular, very specific and anywhere from an hour to a few days later pics of items asked would appear in wallpaper app.
    Has anyone else experienced this?

    • Hi Deb:

      I’m not familiar with Wallpaper, so I can’t be of much assistance with your inquiry. I have approved your comment, so hopefully some of our readers can provide some insightful feedback.

    My mum just passed away and the night before her burial day,a message was sent to her favourite family friend’s daughter’s phone..
    The sender was my mum’s number…but the phone was not in use for some time..how could we describe that?..

  31. JESSICA VICENTE says:

    My mom passed away on November 18, 2016 that morning I received a text message at 6:30 am from my mom’s neighbor stating she was worried about my mom she had not heard her that morning. So I tried calling my mom no answer I rush out of my house to go to my mom’s house. When I got there I found her she was gone from the look of the body it had been hours. I finally spoke to my husband later that morning, and he said he received a text from my mom at 7:19am (that is the same time I was running out of my house to my mom’s house) I was already at her apartment at 7:22 am takes me about 1-2min drive to get to her apartment. When I found her she was in the bathroom and her phone was in her bedroom. When my husband told me this I said there is no way she texted you because she has been dead for a couple hrs. When I looked at her phone there was the message sent at 7:19am which read ” The first ij4eeeeeeee we q” than on the text bar it said my name “Jess”.

    I feel the text was from my mom’s spirit trying to get my husband to stop me from going to her apartment and finding her body she knew how traumatizing that would be for me.

    • Jessica,

      My condolences and sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your mother.

      The spirit world is filled with amazing occurrences of those who have left us reaching out to us. I believe that your husband received a message from your mom.

      Keep an eye out for other messages, be it via text, dreams where she visits with you, or seemingly random occurrences such as seeing/hearing a nickname she called you, or her favorite song playing unexpectedly, or seeing her presence on the physical world.

      I thank you for sharing your personal experience with us and I am terribly sorry for your loss.

      Warmest Regards,

    I get messages that are in the composition part of the message. Meaning that it was written as if i was composing the message. Tonight iI was thinking of some I needed to cal that I had not dialed or looked up in a month. When I opened the phone to looked them up their name and phone number was qued up to call. Their name starts with an m and last name with a w, not exactly in the front of an alphabetical list.

    • Sandyi says:

      I believe this might be
      A first I have heard of what you are describing .
      It is fascinating the different stories people have of
      Various ways some sort
      Of communication is occurring .
      With you i am to understand that the person is still alive that you are referring too . So I wonder what type of intervention is coming from the spirit world ?or if this is some sort of psychic ability that has occurred . We live in an amazing and mysterious world 🌎 thank your for sharing your story !

    Ok so I had just finished texting my daughter .. left the iPhone open on text.. I was cuddling my partner as he was comforting me because it was a few days after my dad’s first anniversary of him passing.. I look over at my phone and saw a cheesy smiley face pop up right in front of my eyes, this one 😬.. classic signature of my dad the cheesy grin.. I couldn’t believe it .. I screenshot it and now I have it always.. plus he opens the lid of the kettle when it’s boiling when I’m sad or thinking about him.. it’s comforting 😊

  34. Mandi Simonsen says:

    My very good friend died feb. 12 2017 this last Sunday we had his memorial and right after I sat down from speaking about him and his life. I received a text from him. I haven’t talk to him since a week before his death. So this has been driving me crazy.. it gets crazier.. I have the new text on my text boxes (where everyone’s names I text are on) and the new text I got is there. But when I press his name to open the new text and finish reading it.. it’s not there. It’s been mind boggling and I just need a little help understanding if it’s him talking to me from the other world.. can you help me? I will send pics

  35. Linda grills says:

    My mother pasted away in the 8 th February 2017. And five days later my nephew spotted a voice mail on her house phone. When he listened to it he got unnerved by it and sent it to me. It’s been hard understanding it as it sounds very muffled. It is in my mothers voice saying something like it’s going to be before 12 o’clock. She died before 12. She sees ghosts. And I never go to bed before 12oclock. Can’t understand it. How can I have the message read to me as hard to understand all of it. And what does it mean. Even still is this possible. I would love to know if it’s a message to us.

    • Sandyi says:

      I am sorry for your loss .
      The message on the voice machine is an amazing
      Phenomenon that seems to be happening more and more . sometimes the message itself might be hard to decipher , with my experience with the paranormal and spirit world it seems loved ones main focus is just to let you know that they are still very much alive in spirit . If something important does need to be told then they will find away to get the message to you . Maybe for now just acknowledge the contact from a loved one ,
      Enjoy knowing that
      Death is only a transition not the end !🌺

    What about text that were sent from a phone left on a charger that was not touched with no explanation? The person was home alone, looked at his phone after about 2 hours and numerous texts were sent. Short sentences and one word text…. over 50 of them

  37. Christina says:

    On an almost daily basis someone else communicated with me through my phone me sometimes through a bluetooth speaker.

    Often when I am intereacting by text with someone I have not yet met while texting them respondes I will get words pop up/ type themselves-that are out of place that I have learned are warnings or information about whomever is on the other end. Actually it has been incrediably Helpful to me. Kept me safe more then Once. They also turn the lights off, and many other things to make me aware, but I don’t always follow their direction. And it usually ends up badly, so I try to.

  38. steve says:

    Well, I’m not sure what to do or where to go or look. But, I’m very happy knowing my deceased wife is okay. She died of Cancer March 21st, 2017 of 4th stage cancer. But it wasn’t the cancer that killed her, it was the build up of fluids in her lungs and the morphine. Catherine, aka “Cat” was my soul mate on this Earth, always was and will be. I was updating her condition daily for 6 weeks so family members and friends could go to my site: http://www.womenofthephilippines.com/catherine-elizabeth-fussell-update/
    After Cat passed, I started looking at old videos of her to remember her and noticed many ORBS. So, after seeing this I started using my metro android phone and started taking videos.. Wow! I have hundreds of them! So this was a good thing to me to know that Cat was still around me. In fact, When I went to get flowers for the wake, I tested to she if she was there with me and sure enough she was and she flew-by the flowers she wanted that happened to be the least expensive! Lol.. This is not where I’m going with this. Where I’m going is I received a voicemail from Cat April 8 at 11:11 am. I listened to it and nothing was there but some static. I thought it was strange but never did anything about it until a few days ago from my post here. My Metro phone doesn’t let me save voicemails, so I purchased a male to male adaptor to load directly to my laptop. I found a free Audio editor called WavPad and it’s got many ways to change the frequencies, the speed, the pitch etc etc… Anyways, the first thing I heard after slowing it down was: Hi Honey. and then something like, “What are you drinking?” and then, “I didn’t want to leave you honey.” but after that it sounded not so good.. Like a big scream, and then the word Devil.. but then it gets good again and says, “Good morning honey”
    And then we have her now, we are helping you.. We are with Blue.” Blue was an old friend of ours that passed away 10 years ago. So basically, I need some help in evaluating what exactly is on this message. I have no experience in Audio editors, but I know what I have is real.. I just want to hear exactly what is being said.. Because the screams…2 of them worry me. God Bless you all

    • Hi Steve,

      My condolences on your loss, I can’t imagine losing a soul mate, someone so intricately connected to you.

      I am a firm believer that those who cross over can still find ways to reach out to us.

      As for your recordings, pay attention to only the messages that make sense to you. Anything else, like screaming or odd sounds, that’s not for you and is not from your wife.

      When you reach out to the spirit world, you invite EVERY spirit an opportunity to communicate.

      If your wife’s messages are cheerful and loving otherwise, then the scarier messages are not from her.

      I wouldn’t give it much thought nor would I entertain it further by trying to figure out what it is.

      I have used wavpad and Audacity and once you tweak filters enough you can compromise even the faintest background noise and turn it into something indecipherable.

      The less tweaking you do to a sound file, the better.

      Please let us know if you have any further questions!

    TRYING TO CONTACT Robert Patrick ROBIDAS, WHO DIED 1/7/2013 AFTER 4 YEARS I MISS HIM SO MUCH, ITS HURTS WHY DID HE DIE ,PLS DON’T TELL ME IT WAS HIS TIME.WHY DON’T HE CONTACT ME.

    • Richard,

      Death doesn’t have a design or a plan. It isn’t a being who searches for victims. Unless a person simply ages out, death is random. You never know when illness or accident will claim those close to us, or come for us directly. It’s what makes life so unpredictable.

      I am sorry for your loss and for the pain you continue to feel by not having Robert in your life.

      Not everyone who crosses over to the other side will communicate with those left behind. Even if they do, it is typically one time, in order to close out business here in the physical world.

      I know you miss Robert terribly, but our world is for the living and we have to find a way to let those who have passed move on from it.

      Just because you can’t contact Robert, or because he does not reach out, does not mean he didn’t care, it does not mean he doesn’t want to see or hear from you.

      Things are different on the other side, there isn’t the grief or sorrow we feel here.

      If you are unable to move on, or you are struggling with grief daily, try reaching out to a psychic medium. They might be able to help you make contact.

      Also, consider grief counseling or therapy to help you sort out the overwhelming sense of loss. There is no shame in that.

      Sincerely,

    We have a “shadow man” in our house. He has a tendency to get a bit aggressive, especially with me. I can feel when spirits are around. I’ve chased him out several times, but he always comes back. Lately he’s been touching me again. I tell him to stop and that he doesn’t have permission to touch me. Tonight I was in the kitchen when my husbands cell phone received a random text from someone he doesn’t know. Something about a toilet, of all things. Here’s the weird part, someone typed a response. There are only two people in the house and neither of us did it. My husband was outside grilling and I didn’t touch his phone. The message said “I’m so angry”. It wasn’t sent. Just typed. Now who did that?! I know who. The shadow man. My husband and I are planning to move, we are tired of dealing with this shadow man. I guess this entity is angry we’re leaving. I really hope he doesn’t get aggressive again. That was very scary! Even the dogs were scared.

    I received two texts few months back. These read like ‘A5ODCN12OKJLSSAA00………………………………….’. Very long messages with just random capitalized alphabets and numbers. The number looked like it belonged to the telecom company. But I never received such messages from the company before and after this incidence. My dear brother had passed few months prior to this incident and I have always wished him to contact me. But I am not sure what these messages are all about. May be just an error at the company’s end. My phone is basic model. We are not allowed to use android at work. I regret I deleted them.Can someone help?

    Hi,

    I have a ghost story, one night my mum, my sister and my little niece were downstairs, I was flicking through my note pad and a message appeared saying “Hello I am Craig”, with some messy small circles in a line underneath.

    I told them and my sister and she thought it would be funny to draw on a page some joined up circles, when I saw this, again on the page it said “Hello, I’m Craig”, my sister said she never did that part.

    The next day at school I was telling the story, and then I looked at the back of my history book and there was the same message with the joined up circles underneath.

    The most significant thing about this writing was that it was very messy, like someone trying to write with their left hand with their eyes closed, but… each time, lets just say, it might as well been photocopied, it was the exact size, style, shape… Unfortunately I threw these messages away because it scared me too much to keep hold of them, they never happened again after that.
