Everyone is curious about the paranormal. What is out there? Is it friendly? Can we interact with it? Ghost hunting teams are common now, and people are no longer afraid to speak publicly about ghosts, aliens, and other entities. I’m sure you either have experienced something paranormal, or you have heard about someone having supernatural contact.
There are all kinds of spiritual contacts. Some are pleasant. Some are horrible. Some are downright strange. What we all know is that spirits do exist. Depending on who you are, you may welcome the contact or be absolutely terrified of it. What you might not know is that a ghost can give you a kiss. That’s right. Pucker up because a ghost can give you a smooch.
You may wonder what happens when we cross over. Who do we become? What can we expect? Do we stay the same? I had someone say to me “I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of attached to who I am and really want to be me on the other side.”
Good news! Yes, people who have passed on keep their personalities. You don’t suddenly become totally different. If a man was a hopeless flirt in life, he still is on the other side. Some women are super outgoing and greet everyone with a peck on the cheek. Such people keep that aspect to their personalities when they cross over. You may come across such ghosts when going to a haunted location.
Yet you do not have to go to another location to experience this. A widow may feel the slight kiss on her lips as her deceased husband tries to ease her sorrow. A widower may report feeling the sensation of his wife’s lips on his cheek when having a bad time. This is quite common and has a deep effect on the spouse left behind.
There are also cases of cheeky ghosts who steal kisses when someone attractive comes around. These ghosts can be grabby and inappropriate. People will actually feel a kiss on the lips or cheek. Naturally people can be freaked out by this, and it creates lots of problems for a location. This is especially true if it happens in a place of business. It happens more than you think. In hotels where this takes place, guests will flee in the middle of the night. It has happened.
A traumatized child may feel a kiss on the forehead from a mother who passed. Children often have spirit contact after the death of a loved one. Reassurance is very important for children, and those from the other side recognize that. They make every effort to help, and one of the ways they do that is to let us know they are with us. They do their best to show affection and use touch, i.e. kiss, hug. This can mean the world to a child who is missing his mother or father.
For you pet lovers out there, I have interviewed people who lost their pets, and later they felt the sensation of their dogs and cats licking their hands and cheeks. Usually it happens when people are sad and grieving for their beloved animals. Individuals will see the imprint of their animal on the couch or bed as if moving toward them, and then they feel the kiss. We love our animals deeply, so this is so reassuring. It shows our animals survive death and still love us.
When it comes to spirits of humans, there are patterns to how the kisses feel. Those who have felt this ghostly kiss describe it as soft and sometimes very cold. Others say it makes their lips tingle. I’ve had people tell me it makes their entire bodies tingle. When coming from a loved one, it can make you feel a complete sensation of love. There is no other feeling like it.
There is so much more to this phenomena. Sometimes witnesses actually see the spirit when they get their kiss. If conditions are right and the spirit has a lot of energy, there can be contact and manifestation. It is not common to see and feel a spirit at the same time. Usually it is one or the other. But it does happen here and there.
If you have lost someone, you may get a kiss from the other side. In a haunted location, a flirty ghost may plant a quick kiss on your cheek. In those situations, there have been some cases where the spirit follows someone home! Though not common, it has happened. There are all kinds of situations where a spirit may reach out and kiss you.
Don’t forget that we live on after death. And don’t be surprised if you get a kiss from someone you love who has passed on. It may come as a complete surprise out of the blue one day. Let it remind you that life continues. You don’t really lose you loved ones. They go on after death and will come to reassure you.
