    Default Can a person who passed be with you in spirit until you pass?

    Because I believe that I feel my brothers spirit around? He passed last Sunday and was my heart.

    I’m sorry for your loss

    I don’t personally believe that a person’s spirit lingers here once they’ve passed. I think it more likely that your heart and mind are seeking comfort right now, and that’s where the feeling is coming from- more of a defense mechanism to help you through such a tragic thing.

    ...but I’m no expert. I’ll be praying for you during this hard time.

    No, the bible says that those who have died are sleeping. They know nothing, do not hover around and certainly do not speak. Sorry about your loss.

    I'm truly sorry for your loss....I don't really believe that your brother is with you in spirit, but I do believe your spirit is seeking comfort in his passing, and I know you'll find that in Christ Jesus, He heals all things. Keep the memory of your brother with you always, and rejoice in the time you had with him, and pray without ceasing and hold to Christ, you'll be in my prayers

    Hello DinoPaul218,

    I'm sorry for the loss of your brother. I, too lost my eldest brother 3 years ago and experienced feeling his presence after his passing, too. I found it to be very comforting - I knew he was alright.

    We need Jesus to be with us in spirit on the earth until we pass and He has promised to do so. Remember Jesus said, "I am with you always, even to the end of the world."

    Be comforted and increase in awareness of Jesus being with you.
