Did you smell that?

I’ve had lots of comments and queries from the mention in my recent post You see dem owls? of smelling odours such as cigarette smoke or flowers when there was no obvious source for that smell.

It’s a big part of spiritual or psychic awakening – this sudden awareness of smells. Common fragrances include:

  • cigarette or cigar smoke
  • perfume
  • aftershave
  • the scent of a particular flower such as roses or geraniums
  • cooking smells
  • familiar but long forgotten scents such as a brand of soap or washing powder

The smells are usually associated with loved ones who’ve crossed over, or with our spirit guides.

We might also be connecting into people who’ve passed that have a strong emotional attachment to a place but not to us.  For example, it is quite common to smell cigarette smoke at our home in Brisbane, even though none of us smokes.  The original resident, whose husband built the house in 1937, was a heavy smoker, and was very happy at this home, according to all accounts. Since she passed away we have felt her energy and smelled tobacco quite strongly from time to time.

Whenever I smell roses I feel the presence of my Great-Aunt Gwen, who brings comfort to the women of our family.

Gardenias remind me that my grandmother is near. The smell of diesel has often had me look over my shoulder for my grandfather.

There are other things too, that you may have experienced.  Perhaps you have felt a breeze or seen the curtains stir, even though the air is still or the house all locked up. A clock might chime, or stop.  An object might move from place to place, although no-one has touched it. Or you may have captured orbs in some of your photographs.

These are never things to be afraid of – instead they are signs that should encourage and cheer you. Life is truly a magical, mystical journey, and we will never have all of the answers. But after everything I have seen and experienced, I KNOW there is more to this life than just what we can see and touch.  Trust these experiences, trust your intuition and know that we are well loved, and never, ever alone.

  2. The smell of mothballs reminds me of my grandmother – the closed cab of my truck once filled up with that smell on the way to work and then vanished. It’s happened a few other times too. I just say hello and go on with my day! 🙂

  3. HI Nicole, I had a wonderful expereince a few nights ago. I have been away for training on working with your multiple brains, which include the enteric brain and have been consciously trying to tune into that. The other night I woke with a stong taste in my mouth (and it wasn’t a regurgitaion of dinner!) It was spicy and beautiful and came as quickly as it went. It was so cool!! 🙂

  4. I’ve been experiencing this for some years cigarette smoke ( probably my father) and lately flower parfum at the dook of my bank and not the same day . 🙂 thank for the intuition program

  5. Here comes the Sun! Beautiful photo. Yes, It’s wonderful to receive reminders that love one gone watch over us and share our lives. Happy solstice, Happy Friday, Happy Mullum Market Day! Much love and beautiful healing light to you… Xxxxx
