Tingling Sensation


I lost someone I loved very much 6 months ago now since his passing I have had this tingling sensation on my face usually when I go to bed at nights and thinking about him, it's usually on my right cheek but sometimes all over my head, could this be a sign someone is trying to make contact? This has only happened since I lost him, I have all so had had a spirit portrait done that doesn't really look like him which is hung in my bedroom when I am relaxed at nights and looking at the portrait it changes and I can see him in it. None of this makes any sense to me as I haven't had anything like this happen to me and I'm hoping someone could explain it to me or if anyone out there has had any similar experiences? I'm starting to think there is something wrong with me and I don't really know how to explain these things, I'm not a great believer in after life, I all so get strange thoughts that just pop into my head from nowhere as its not something that I would be thinking about at the time I just can't find an explanation for the things I have been feeling some say it's down to grief but would it affect you in the same way the connection between the two of us was very strong in life and I don't know if its his way of just saying hello many thanks.

The tingling sensation is a way to let you know that he is with you- like calm hands touching your face. How interesting with the spirit portrait - I've never heard something quite like that before. Try to make contact but beware of deceit; some ghosts can and will lie to you.

the tingling is to let you know he is with you. His way of showing you their is more that this life. Listen to your thoughts, he might be trying to send you a message

Sandra, it sounds like you are making a connection with your dearly departed. I'm not sure but often when you open yourself to communing with one spirits others will try and talk to you too. If you like talk to them but remember they are like people in real life, some will lie and some will be honest and try and help you. IF it bothers you just block all other voices/spirits and just talk to you loved ones. Remember you have the power within you to control your life and what you want to do with it. Don't let anyone take it away.

May you find peace and the will to continue. Even though a loved one may not be physically present I think they still watch over us in whatever plane of existance the move on to.

Hello Sandra~

Unlike the others, my first guess was completely different...

First you are in a state of grief, combined with, as you say, "strange thoughts that just pop into my head from nowhere", and then a tingling you can feel around your head. These symptoms are VERY typical of a small shadow creature (or Jinn as I call them) who has attached itself to you. These creatures like the feelings of sadness/anger/negativity - and even though the small ones can't do much harm, they can still wreak havoc on your thoughts and feelings, and even leave you in a complete state of depression. Now IF this is the case, these creatures don't like the feeling of pure happiness from the heart - or if you're good with energies, light energy. The easiest thing is if you have pets, to be around them whenever possible as they heal your energies and some can see the jinn.

I could be completely wrong, but these were my first thoughts from reading your story. Hopefully all goes well.

You're definitely not going mad.:)

It is very likely a spirit contact as Infinite said -- it can also be the longing of your own spirit to step out and take a walk, as it were, in that realm (so in an odd sense, the movement of your OWN spirit in its body vehicle, now more noticeable). Tingling in the forehead/upper head region specifically is usually third eye/inner sight activity. A lot of times you will see such physical symptoms noted before out of body experiences, and the death of someone close to us can sometimes 'bring the soul to the surface', where it will remember to try and wander more freely.

In sensitive times such as this, it is more noticeable - many people will have OOBE's or 'dream of the dead' after they have lost someone. Contact is a two way street - as Infinite pointed out, 'have an open heart and an open mind'. Though you can sit passively and receive who is coming and 'reaching out', you also have the option to 'reach back' by keeping yourself open and flexible to what comes.

Keep yourself at the highest resonance possible (sounds spooky. Basically, love, light, positivity, joy, strength, etc) during this time. A door has opened a crack, and you're just getting to peek in around the frame now. It is you choice how far you wish to open it.

Hello Sandra, well I can answer your question about the tingling sensation. But you need to open your mind a little bit right now, and for a minute forget everything you've been taught - in this sense I mean silence your thoughts for right now, as your read try not make any judgement but instead feel what you read to yourself, and see what you feel about what I say.

Now that tingling sensation you feel, is the guidance of your lost one. When you feel that sensation its a spirit. Its a spirit sending you its love, its light. The message that it brings out is that he or she will always be there for you, you can even speak to the spirit but only if you can truly listen. You must have an open heart and an open mind. There's nothing to fear when it comes to contacting a spirit. You can easily channel the message from the spirit and see what it wants to tell you.
When I'm in meditation I ask for guidence, and right away I know there are angels and spirits all around us, I know this because I feel it, the tingles come from head, to my spine, to all over my body. Some of them can tell you things about the spirit world, or they can simply just be there as a guide.
As you know the earth is going through major changes. It's a living organism. It has its own consciousness, and its own spirit.
The reason for why many people are now having all these experiences, and feeling of another presence is because us humans are not in harmony with our spirit selves, I should say our higher selves.
There are so many interesting things to learn about energy, how we all resonate on different frequencies. But to sum this all up, there is a light shining on you, and you should come more aware of it, it will lead you on the right path towards enlightenment, which is necessary for the evolutionary process of humankind.
