Dreams, Signs and Connections

Those who have experienced spirit contact with their deceased loved ones will now have an opportunity to share their experiences with others on the Open to Hope Foundation website. Sally Grablick has been appointed as the Forum Editor and will be responding to posts.

“Spirit contact is not only possible, it does in fact happen to many, many people – I’m just not afraid to talk about it, “states Grablick. “The Open to Hope Foundation is providing a forum where grieving hearts can share these uplifting experiences. Many grief stricken people have shared their stories with me, and I have found that butterflies, music, feathers, rainbows, and numbers, are common signs received from the other side. These signs provide hope to the bereaved, because they offer a connection to our lost loved ones.” Grablick attributes the bulk of her recovery to the signs she received from her son, Ryan, after his suicide.

Grablick’s book, The Reason: Help and Hope for Those Who Grieve is a story is about grief recovery. It is a true-to-life account about the lessons learned, tools used and insights gained as she navigated her way through grief to hope. One such tool relies on a person’s ability to cultivate openness to the presence of their loved ones spirit. The ability to recognize signs and receive messages – both spoken and silent – are gracefully woven together, forming the bigger picture that can bring closure and peace.

Those who have had an experience related to a dream, sign or connection from their deceased loved one, are encouraged to share their story of hope. Visit , click on the Community Forums button and choose the Dream, Signs and Connections forum.
