One of the most common ways our loved ones are felt from beyond the grave is through scent. Our sense of smell is directly connected to our hippocampus, the area of the brain dedicated to memories. Scents are the strongest in bringing about memory recall as well as in connecting with others. You may smell your grandma’s perfume, grandpa’s pipe tobacco or a friend’s deodorant. Don’t be scared, just know they are near and looking out for you!
