At some level, we’ve all had experiences or signs where we have connected to our deceased loved ones. Whether it was from a gentle touch to lights flickering or seeing numbers in patterns, and even having a bird or an animal join you - we’ve all experienced something.
In this article, I would like to share my story of how I connected with my Nonno when he passed so that it might be able to help you on your journey. I know that this is a delicate subject for many of us, but that’s why this article is so important.
Remember, we are all energy beings, and energy can not be destroyed.
When my Nonno passed, he lived in Canada, and I was far away in Los Angeles. He had been diagnosed with cancer and was fighting it for a few years. I tried to visit as often as I could, each time hoping it wasn’t the last. But then I got the phone call; he was going. I couldn’t get there fast enough. I remember feeling helpless and not knowing what to do.
Then I heard the phone ring again, and I knew it was too late. I felt my body go limp. I sat in front of my fireplace, closed my eyes, and used every gift, every ritual, every guide to help me find my Nonno on the other side. I flew around in the darkness like a panicked mother looking for her lost child in a crowded mall. I needed to find him, and I wasn’t giving up. Instead, I focused on building up my energy - my frequency - to connect to this new realm that he was in.
It was all happening so fast, but somehow, I felt like I knew what I was doing. I could even sense other beings around me, but I just kept going. I held his image close to my heart, and I called for him within my mind.
Nonno!! , I yelled, his name.
Nonno Pasquale where are you?
I kept flying faster and harder. That’s the only way I can describe it.
I didn’t get to say goodbye, I thought… I love you so much
Where are you? I yelled again.
And then, just like that, I felt him; his presence was loud and clear and all around me. I burst out into tears. It was like the first time he picked me up from kindergarten. I was so relieved that I had found him.
“I found you!” I thought. “I found you.”
I hugged him in my mind’s eye. I had the urge to run to my stereo, and I started to play a Pavarotti song that he loved. I got up and danced with him in my arms. I laughed at the fact that he finally came to LA and visited me. It was truly magnificent.
As I enjoyed dancing with him with giant tears in my eyes, I could feel it was time for him to leave. So I asked him if he could leave me a sign that this happened, and I didn’t just make it up. Well, the next day, on the same spot where we were dancing, it looked like someone had just poured a glass of red wine all over my wooden floor.
My Nonno loved his wine.
I ran upstairs to ask my husband if he had spilled anything on the floor.
“Nothing,” he said.
As I bolted back across our hallway, about ten birds started smacking against the windows. I admit. I was freaking out, and I wanted to know where the spillage came from. But, unfortunately, my husband was still asleep and knew nothing about it. So I grabbed my pillow and squeezed it, thanking my Nonno for visiting me and leaving an unequivocal message.

For some reason, this cosmic jump that I had done opened me up to all kinds of doorways. My psychic gifts took off after that. I began to read others’ minds, but it seemed more like channeling now.
I could read the energy around people.
I could tell if I picked up an energetic hitchhiker.
The energy was seriously off the charts for me. Slowly, I visualized myself closing windows to these different realms when I didn’t want to be as open as I was. This experience had really opened my eyes and third eye to so many possibilities.
