How do you know if there is life after death? The idea of ghosts, spirits, and the existence of other realms has been around for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians believed that life was just the first leg of an infinite journey and that death was the beginning of a new chapter—one of “everlasting joy.” Many Christians believe in an eternal Heavenly afterlife, and for Muslims, trusting in the afterlife “is one of the six articles” of the Islamic faith.
Some people are convinced they know what happens to a soul when a person dies. Others aren’t so sure. But one thing seems to be certain: children seem to have an easier time seeing and interacting with entities from “the other side” than adults.
Whether its because they have a greater awareness of energies or lesser awareness of what is “possible” in this world, the phenomenon is a well-documented one.
And it’s one that @Vandalyzm helped cement when they tweeted, “My daughter is currently giving my grandmother, her great grandmother a tour of my parents’ new home. My grandmother passed in 93.”
This viral tweet kicked off an entire discussions as folks shared their own spooky, heartbreaking, and sweet stories about loved ones reaching out from beyond the grave.
