There are some people who do not know they are “dead.” These include those who died suddenly and remain in a state of confusion for a brief period of time. Healer spirits on the other side tend to them until they are ready to awaken to their new surroundings. There are other people who accept that their situation has changed, but they are waiting for some sign or a greeting from some being, which their earth-based religion had taught them to be ready to see when they departed the earth plane. As a psychic medium, I have encountered a sitter’s loved one kneeling in prayer on the other side, waiting to be officially welcomed. The sitter will in these cases acknowledge the loved one’s deeply held religious convictions. I can often see helper spirits, loved ones, and guides trying to rouse the focused spirit, and I can only hope, and believe, that eventually the spirit moves on to their new life.
