When a loved one passes away it's quite common to experience visits from them during our sleeping hours. If you've experienced this before you can rest-assured that it's completely normal.
I've had many people ask and share their stories with me about spirits who visit during the night, and who in particular like to hang around their bed. There's always a common experience, seeing a loved one standing at the foot of the bed or sitting next to them on the bed. You may have experienced this for yourself either prior to falling asleep or when you were dreaming while sleep. There's a reason why our spirit friends like to visit at this time and why they like to hang around our beds so much!
When someone close to you passes away they often want to visit and be close to those that they loved most while they were still alive. They will quite often choose to 'appear' to only one family member too. This choice is usually to do with how receptive a particular person in the family is, whether they have the confidence to share their experience with other family members and how important they were to this spirit when they were still alive.
To understand why spirits visit at night time you first need to understand vibrational frquencies. The spirit realm has a higher vibrational frequency since they are so close to the source or pure white light, whereas us poor people on the physical plane tend to have a lower vibrational frequency. Mediums and physics naturally have a higher vibrational energy and this is how they are able to communicate with passed over loved ones. I've heard this vibrational energy difference being likened to that of a radio frequency- if you're on the same frequency you'll hear the message clearly, if it's slightly off you'll get static but still get some of the message will come through, and if you're on a completely different wave length you won't receive any messages at all.
So what it comes down to is our energy vibrations at night time. Because spirit's energy resonates at a higher frequency than most humans the only way they can communicate is if we are at the same, or at least a close, frequency to theirs. At night time our vibrational frequency naturally changes. Relaxation, meditation and rest all change our vibrational level to a higher frequency which is why night time is the perfect time for spirit to communicate.
Sometimes spirit will appear to us while we are dreaming. It is much easier for them to communicate with us while we are in a dream state because our vibrational level is at the perfect frequency for them. Learning how to minic the brain waves of a dream state will naturally lead to more comminication with the spirit realm, and this can be achieved through frequent meditation.
Spirits choose to hang around our beds as this is the time when we are most relaxed and have a minimal amount of distractions present. If you're going about your daily business it's not really an ideal time for them to try and communicate with you amoungst all the hussle and bussle. Parents, children and partners also tend to share bonding time in their physical life while in bed, so this has naturally become a safe haven for spirits to appear in.
Why the sitting at the end of the bed though? A passed over loved one has every intention of getting their message through to you, and the last thing they want is to scare you off! Physical distance and giving you a bit of space seems to be their way of making the whole situation a little easier to comprehend.
So next time you experience a spirit sitting at the end of your bed, don't panic! That person is there for a reason and wants to be close to you so embrace their pressence and enjoy whatever message they need to share.
Love and light xx
