After Death Communications – Do the Deceased Communicate with Us?

by Laurra Warnke

Have you experienced after death communications from a love one? Do the recently deceased really contact us after they have left the Earth? Many people report strange occurrences and synchronicity shortly after a loved one passes away.

I do believe it is their loved ones attempt to get your attention and let you know they are safe, whole, and well on the other side. Some deceased communicate with you via repeating numbers. Others leave physical signs, letters, pennies, or just the scent of their favorite perfume to let you know they are there and still with you. This may happen within the first few days to a few months after they have passed.

I would like to open up this post to anyone who wants to share their after death communications and experiences and I hope it to become part of your healing and grieving from the loss of a loved one.

Seeing 333 as a Sign

Sherry left a comment on my blog about seeing the repeating number 333 that she agreed to let me share with you. We also exchanged a few subsequent emails.

My dad died on April 13 but wasn’t discovered until April 18th. He lived 20 minutes from me, but we had a complicated relationship due to his drinking and gruffness.

Despite that, and even though we weren’t surprised by his death, we were all shocked! Our nickname for him was, “Energizer Bunny” because he would have many drunken falls, bruises, broken ribs, strokes, heart issues, but he kept going and going…pretty indestructible! He was not religious or at all spiritual that we know of…never wanted to talk about anything deep or painful, (like our little brother’s death in a fire in our home). He was “tough” in many ways.

Anyways, on Easter…a few days before his memorial service, we all met to have lunch with our mom, his ex-wife, at her nursing home. It was an emotional Easter meal we all shared, and when my husband, boys and I got to the car for our 2 hour drive home, strangely the driver seat was all the way forward and my husband could not get it to go back. There was no way we could drive the car home like that, and after trying for a few moments, he said that the mechanism to move it was burned out. I kept asking how could it have moved all the way up, and finally said outloud, “Dad, if you’re there we need your help…we have to get home!”

At that moment, the seat worked and was able to move again, and my 14 year old son exclaimed, “I just got a smiley face text from mom’s phone, mom, did you text me?(my phone was in my purse strapped on my body!!). The time on the car clock was 3:33, and the text was sent and received at 3:33 as well.

We all couldn’t believe it, especially my very skeptical Agnostic husband and sons! There is an explanation for the text…if you press the menu button on my phone 8 times, it will send the last text I sent to the first person on my contact list…my 14 year old son. But, the keypad has to be unlocked, it would have had to bump against my body 8 times, and the coincidence of the timing…Then, today, I balanced our business checkbook and the total was $3333.33!!

What does it all mean? I have felt my dad coming into my life since he died…he reassures me that he is healed and whole now, and he’s sorry for all the pain. I have had other experiences when loved ones have died, especially over the past 15+ years of my life, (I’m 53), but none with numbers that I’ve noticed. Is there a place to share after-death experiences?

I have had experiences that are so interesting/amazing…ever since my friend who “awakened” my spirituality died. His was the first death where I can re-call “happenings” both during his passing, and after. Since then, it happens every time. I had heard friends talk of such things, but was sure they were coincidence and made up. Now that they happen to me, and my family, I know that they are as real as anything else I experience!

Hi Laura:
We enjoy reading all the articles, and look everyday just to see what’s new.

I would like to share a little story of a special visit from my deceased husband “Bob”

Bob had always been a loving, caring father and husband. His passing at age 58 was very hard on both myself and grown daughter. He was the type of man who would call on the call phone once or twice a day, just to check to see if we were ok, or to say hi. After his passing, we missed those calls terribly.

About three months after he passed, it was July 9, 2006, we had noticed that there was a “missed call” showing on the cell. We paid no mind when we saw the caller had the number 000-000-0000, We naturally assumed it was from a telemarketer of some sort.

Later on that same evening, my daughter was listening to any missed calls. Suddenly, she started laughing and tearing up at the same time. As I was abiout to ask her what she was listening to, she handed me the phone. Then I heard my dear husband Bob say “Janet” followed by some static. My daughter’s name is Janet. His greeting had come from the number with all the zero’s.

We knew that day, that he was just calling in to say Hi.

(Just a point of interest. I was surprised to see that when the phone bill came in there was NO listing of that number on that day in July. I called the phone company to inquirer and was told they had no listing on any incoming call that day for that number.

Thanks again for all the comforting and enlightening articles

Laura May 12, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Hi Denise,

Thank you so much for sharing! I love your story. The ability the to affect telephone calls is not one I have personally experienced, but I have heard others like yourself have had contact in that way. How comforting.


Angela Artemis May 12, 2011 at 12:44 pm

I’ve never encountered any repeating numbers – I have friend who sees 333 everywhere, but this has never happened to me. Why do you think some people are aware of these number sequences, and others aren’t?

Laura May 12, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Hi Angela,

I think you ask the million dollar question! I did not see repeating numbers until about 3 years ago. Up until then, I led a pretty normal life! Now I see them everywhere, every day. It is what led me down the path I am on right now, with this website. I started seeing 11:11 at first, enough for it to get my attention and do some searching about it, then the others like 333 and 444. It has been a crazy ride. I wish I had and exact answer for you as to why one person sees them and not others. There are a lot of theories, but nothing that everyone can agree on.


Sharon Simpson May 12, 2011 at 4:06 pm

Hi Laura

I wrote about this very topic on my own blog and it’s proved to be one of the most popular posts. You can read my story – and other similar tales – here:

PS Really love the recurring number posts, am very interested in that too :)


Laura May 12, 2011 at 4:34 pm

Hi Sharon! Very nice to meet you. I read your article and it had me a bit choked up. But I loved the ending!


Sharon Simpson May 12, 2011 at 4:39 pm

Thanks, Laura – I should have warned you to have a tissue ready, it’s a bit of a weepy… I still see my cats in my dreams and I always welcome their visits.

Thanks for your blog, look forward to reading more.


sherry May 14, 2011 at 11:17 am

After the repeating 3’s I started to see repeating 2’s and ones, and also lots of 1,2,3 or 3,2,1 series! I read this today at 11:11, and last night finished journaling at 12:30. It’s happening so frequently, that I can’t remember everything preceding it, so I just tell myself it means that my dad is well, and spirit is close, and that I’m on the right journey! :) It’s so comforting…


Anna Barlowe May 20, 2011 at 5:36 pm

Hi, I’m very happy to find this post, since I myself write a blog on pretty much this very topic.

I have a spirit companion called Daniel who is from my most recent former lifetime, and who has learned to communicate with me quite visibly, such that anybody can (and does) see it. He started out with the 333 and the cell phone thing, and moved on from there, to some rather astonishing ends!

Anyone who is interested in reading about him might want to check out the category called Daniel’s Story on my blog, and read from the beginning. I’ve subscribed here as well! :)

Okay … here’s one … it’s not a “repeating number” in the sense of 111 or 222 … more like one number that keeps repeating itself. My Father was killed in a freak accident on Friday the 13th. I have always had a “thing” about Friday the 13th and my Dad always laughed it off and said things like … “I don’t know why you get so worked up about Friday the 13th, it’s just another day.” Further, my Dad’s great uncle twice removed was Harry Houdini the magician who as you may know used to expose mediums who were wrongfully telling people they were communicating with the dead after his Mother died. Harry Houdini had a “pack” of sorts with his wife that if he could communicate with her after his death he would. The jury is still out on that one. My Dad and I had a similar pack of after death communication. Obviously, he passed away on Friday the 13th and the number 13 … haunts me. The number 13 is almost a constant in my life. At first it really freaked me out, and even made me angry especially right after his death. But then I finally realized it was just his way of keeping in touch with me. I just got approval for a loan to buy a house this morning and the closing costs were out of my reach. I just got an email from my 401K man and he is getting me the $13 thousand that I need to purchase the house. I guess Dad REALLY wants me to get that house. We hope to be moving in late this year, but knowing my luck it will be in 2013. THANKS DAD!


tina October 11, 2012 at 8:52 pm

omg! i could tell you so much about my experience with my husband communicating with numbers unbelievable. this is just the thing i”ve been looking for to confirm my belief. thanks


Dana October 12, 2012 at 12:14 am

Boy … oh Boy .. did I open a can of worms. BOB … REALLY … Denise … BOB … that was my Dad’s name. I got this email today … responding to my post about the “13” thing … TODAY … is 10/11/12. TEN-ELEVEN-TWELVE. And I wrote myself a check for $13K today. Really? I’ve never even SEEN $13K. but I did today. 10-11-12-13. I can’t even begin to tell 13 stories about my Dad’s passing on Friday the 13th. It would take up an entire website. I have been laughing to myself about this all day long … and then I get this email. I am exhausted from this whole … buying a house … escrow … and EVERYTHING … is tied to 13. Sometimes I think I am crazy … and I ALWAYS remember my Dad .. and him telling me … if there is a way … that I can communicate with you … just like Harry Houdini … after I am gone .. a pact that we made … he ALWAYS said … he would do it … thank ALL of you for responding .. and sharing .. and SUBSTANTIATING … this. Oh, and by the way … just for giggles … since I work for a living .. just like the rest of us regular folk … I have to “walk the check” into the bank on my day off … that would be Saturday … I have to take the $13K check … into the bank … on my day off … on the 13th. My friends tease me that I do THIS on purpose. Umm. NO. Jiminy Christmas. Hope to be in our new house … by Christmas.

My grandfather passed this morning. He suffered with Alzheimer’s for the past two years and coincidentally his oldest son (I’ll call him Al), which he was close with, was diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder a few years ago as well. This disease is similar to Alzheimer’s but starts earlier and progresses very fast. Over the past few months, the son (62 years old) hasn’t been able to dress himself or comb his hair, etc.
When my grandfather passed this morning, my aunt was called. She went to wake Al and wait until he was alert and taken his medication to tell him about his father. When she entered the room, he was awake hours before he normally woke, dressed with his hair combed, but on the bed crying. She asked him what was wrong and he exclaimed “my daddy is dead”. She asked him again, and he repeated “my daddy is dead”. She asked, honey, why do you think your dad is dead? He said “he was just standing here beside me with Jesus and waved his hand at me and said goodbye buddy”. She had not told him about his father yet, who had only died within the past 30 minutes, and she was on the opposite side of the house, on her cell phone when she had the short call about the passing.
This is a true story and just happened this morning, 11-10-12.

My wonderful husband passed on December 14, 2012. Since then many wonderful signs have been coming. I am sure it is not coincidence. The day after he left, a coyote was hanging around my sliding glass door. It was one in the neighborhood that no one had seen before. Also, the coyotes are skiddish. This one had to pass two red cars and a golf cart in tight quarters. Didn’t think of it mych till the afternoon. I remembered my husband had a tattoo of a coyote on his shoulder. The doorbell at our other home went off. The doorbell is broken. It sounded when his sister was here. Her favorite movie is “Its a Wonderful Life”. Every time you hear a bell an angel gets its wings. I hear the doorbell too. Tried to ring it myself but nothing. there are other things that only I could know that it is him. I am just worried that as time passes on he will not do this anymore. It brings comfort, a smile on my face and warmth in my heart.


Della February 16, 2013 at 10:01 pm

My dad died 6 years ago and today my daughter drove to our old farm to take pictures and she looked to the passenger side of the car and he was sitting in the passenger seat just as if a live person was sitting there, he smiled at her and then was gone, but the scent of old spice that he always wore was heavy in the air and an envelope on the seat was all crumpled as if someone had sat on it. what does this mean??


Lori August 8, 2014 at 11:24 pm

The day after my friend passed away a song popped into my head. I immediately thought of him and said to myself, “I think this is him”. I immediately played the song on you tube and each and every lyric spoke to me as if it was coming from him. As if this song described his entire experience. The song is I Can See Clearly Now. Around the same time, as I was driving, all of a sudden all of the 7s on the dashboard (speed, temperature, radio) were standing out to me as if they were popping out, and my eyes were drawn to each of them. I thought to myself, “7,7,7. What’s with the number 7″? Two days later, I saw my friend’s death date in my mind’s eye and I figured it out. He died on 7/25/2014. 7/2+5=7/2+0+1+4=7. 7/7/7. Eerily, his wife figured on the significance of 7 essentially at the exact same time that I did. In looking up the meaning of 7, it signifies completion, perfection, and is God’s divine number. This communication has left me in complete peace with his passing and I have passed along his message to others to help them come to peace. It was the most surreal experience that completely solidified my confidence in knowing that there is an afterlife and it is a beautiful place :)


Christina January 18, 2015 at 5:31 am

My beautiful daughter Zaelynn Jewell was born on December 21, 2006. She passed away January 10, 2007. She was 20 days old. Since then i have been seeing repeating numbers everywhere, especially when she is on my mind. Untill today i didnt know why. Thank you Laurra for letting me know that she is trying to communcate with me. Now if i can just figure out what she is trying to tell me i will feel so much better. It seems latley that everytime i look at a clock it is 3:33, 2:22 or 4:44. Today i googled 333 and found you. Maybe she is guiding me to you for some reason?? Can you help me figure out why? I feel so lost and confused, sad and depressed all the time. I have tried meds but they dont seem to help. My life seems to be falling to pieces and i cant seem to keep it together. I think i need to know what she is trying to say but i dont know how to listen right. If you have any advice i am open to it. Thank you. Christina.


Dana January 18, 2015 at 7:50 pm

Dear Christina: I am so sorry for your loss. If you read some of my other posts, I had something similar happen. It was very painful for a several years and every time I saw the number 13, I just wanted to scream. One day I had an epiphany, it just popped into my head, that was my Dad’s way of saying that he was still with me. It’s like a connection. In an earlier post, I connected with someone whose loved one’s name was Bob (as was my Dad’s). Your daughter’s name is Zaelynn and my niece just had a baby girl named Raelynn. These are not coincidences, but rather connections. Mathematics can span languages and numbers communicate differently than the spoken word. She is making a connection with you. I hope this gives you some peace.


Julie Smith January 28, 2015 at 10:57 pm

Hi Laura, My husband Kirk passed away January 29, 1992. His time of death was 3:29 am. He was only 30 years old. For 23 years, every time I glance at a clock, cellphone, television. I glance right when the time is 3:29. What does this mean to you? Is it my husband communicating to me, is he near me, guiding me. I would love to hear from you! Thank You


Dana January 29, 2015 at 12:30 pm

Dear Julie: If you read some of my other posts about my Dad who was killed on Friday the 13th, then, yes I do believe he is communicating with you in some way. Think of it this way, many believe that numbers are a universal form of communication since, for example, 13 is 13 in any language. Does that make sense?


Terri February 27, 2015 at 10:36 am

My mom just passed away on February 4th at the age of 94. We’ve always been close, no matter where life took me, I always stayed extremely close to her. When she got sick and was eventually transferred to Hospice, after a few days there she was no longer able to communicate but I still continued to talk to her. Just a few days before she passed away, I told her that when she got to Heaven I wanted her to let me know she was okay. Here are a few of the things that have happened to me that I think have been signs from her letting me know she is indeed okay……The day after the funeral I went back to the cemetery because I just felt the need to be there. Even though the sun was shining, it was an extremely cold and windy day but while I stood and prayed for her at her grave, the wind stopped blowing and I felt the sun shine warm down the front of my body. When I finished praying the wind began blowing as hard and as cold as it had before. I took this to mean she was letting me know she is in a warm place with the sun shining on her. The next sign was in my bedroom…….I had tucked her prayer card given to all of us from the funeral home in the edge of the mirror of my dresser. Kind of like you would tuck a photo into the side of a mirror. I also have a small wooden crucifix standing on my dresser below the mirror. I was walking into my bedroom and heard something fall and when I turned the light on I saw that the crucifix had fallen, lying on its side with the prayer card lying right beside it. When I purposely tried to make the prayer card and crucifix fall, neither of them would fall any where close to the way they had fallen by themselves. I took this to mean she was letting me know she’s with Jesus. The next sign happened while I was driving my son to school. After we were in the car for about five minutes, I asked him if he had just brushed his teeth before he left the house and he said “no”. I asked him if he was chewing gum and he said “no”. I then asked him if he smelled the scent of mint in the car and he said “no I don’t smell it”. My mother always chewed a certain brand of gum and the mint I was smelling was that gum. She always had that gum, packs and packs of it everywhere….so much so that my kids lovingly called her “Grandma with the gum”.
I think she was letting me know she will always be close by me. And so far, the last sign was in the middle of the night when I woke up to use the bathroom….as I was walking to the bathroom and not thinking of anything at all because I was half asleep, the song “He Walks With Me” started playing in my head which was a hymn that she loved and was on a cd I had just given her for her birthday shortly before she passed away. I took this to mean she was telling me she walks with God. I hope you don’t all think I’m crazy, but I don’t know how else to explain these things that have been happening ever since my mom passed except for the fact that she knows I’m in pain because I miss her so much and she is trying to ease my pain. I hope the signs keep coming.


Laurra Warnke February 27, 2015 at 5:44 pm

Hi Terry,

Thank you so much for sharing! It is all beautiful! I am so sorry for your loss. You are doing well picking up on the subtle cues.


Dana March 3, 2015 at 1:24 pm

It’s amazing really, it is like the connection never goes away. I’m the one whose Dad was killed on Friday the 13th. This is the “mirror” year, with that particular Friday the 13th falling on the day before Valentine’s Day. There is also three Friday the 13th’s this year. If you want to know how rare that is, three Friday the 13th’s in one year, it won’t happen again until 2025. Last week was my Mom’s 85th birthday. I certainly wasn’t going to put 85 candles on her cake, so what’s 8+5? You got it, 13th. On my way home from her house, I was thinking about my Dad the whole time. When I pulled into the driveway at my house and turned off the ignition, I glanced at my odometer, which I rarely do, and it read, 213,000.00 – by the way – my Dad was a mechanic amongst other things. I find it so awesome that he is still communicating with me, even showed up for Mom’s milestone birthday. There have been many more 13’s lately, but those are the most notable.
