What I know for sure is that spirit doesn’t want to scare you. They are looking for ways to get our attention. If you are someone who had intuitive gifts as a child, then you know that somewhere along the line you most likely told them to go away or stopped communicating all together.
I had a client who brought her daughter to see me. Mary Kate was 5 and she talked all day long about her “friends”, Thomas and Rebecca. They would visit at night and Mary Kate’s parents would wake up to hear her whispering and talking in her bedroom. And, when they went to check on her, they could see her having an animated conversation without anyone else in the room. I asked Mary Kate if her “friends” came to visit often, and she replied, “Oh, Yes. We have tea and play every night after Mommy and Daddy are sleeping.”
As Mary Kate got older, she stopped communicating with her “friends” and in her early 20s, she began to pick up on spirit once again.
We are most receptive at night which is why spirits visit then.
Typically, we are more relaxed during the evening hours. When we are asleep, all the daily momentum stops, and our to-do lists are at rest until morning. In the sleep state, we are open, receptive, and our minds aren’t getting in the way.
So much can occur during our sleep state. We may astral travel, vising distant lands or even our childhood home, or, we may hang out with our spirit guides, learning and exploring more of our soul’s journey while in this life. Our dreams can offer another way for spirit to communicate with us. We may wake up with just the answer that previously eluded us, or with a sense that all is well and that we are divinely guided and loved from the heavenly realms.
Reasons spirit may be visiting at night:
If Spirit visiting at night is bothering you, like it does for most of us, you can set boundaries and even business hours with spirit. You can tell them when you’re willing to connect, how they can connect with you, and who you’re willing to connect with.
You are in the driver’s seat with your energy and your home so don’t feel bad about setting boundaries and ground rules for spirit to engage with you. It’s like that person who stays long after the party is over. At some point you will let them know it's time to go home.
What are some ways to ensure a peaceful, spirit-free night?
If all else fails, reach out to a medium or energy worker who can help you with the energy in your home. Spirit will continue to try to get your attention so if you need a little support, make sure you reach out. Spirit will thank you and your home will be your sacred space for rest and rejuvenation.
Another way to think of spirit, is that they are just people without bodies. They cannot bring any harm to you or your family and they are not more powerful than you are. Spirit communication is a beautiful gift and capacity and, with your focused intention, you can develop your connection with the spirit world in a way that works best for you.
