Why is it that after losing someone to death (spirit) we receive more evidence that they are close to us? By that,I mean hearing,feeling,sensing and 'knowing' they are near. As time passes by,this feeling recedes bit by bit until we no longer feel their presence around us. We wonder why that happens? Why only straight after physical death do we feel the presence so strongly. Why does the feeling of 'nearness' drift away from us? Is it because they have moved a litle nearer to the light? Is it because they are told by the spirit world that to progess,they must leave the earthly atmosphere and move on? Anymore ideas why this happens? SHO.
