Spirits Use Coincidence To Say Hello From The Afterlife!

In today’s bite-sized Afterlife TV episode, one of our viewers, Ann, tells a story about her recently passed father, the special connection they shared, and the wonderful sign she received from him. Melissa is back in the studio with me, and she shares a story about a good friend of ours who passed and the special sign he sent her from beyond. Today’s episode is about how our loved ones in spirit use coincidence to communicate with us. We also talk about why some people receive messages from their loved ones in spirit and others do not.

We would love to hear what you thought of this episode. And if you have an afterlife or coincidence story like Ann’s or Melissa’s, we would love for you to share your afterlife story with us—either on social media or you can record your own story for a chance to be featured on an episode of Afterlife TV (link below). As always, if you enjoyed the show, we’d appreciate your review on our iTunes podcast (link below). Photos on video by my wife, Melissa. Until next time, pay attention to every coincidence in your life…

Bob: Hey everybody. Bob Olson here with Afterlife TV. You can find us at This is where we talk about life after death and answer the meaningful questions around that subject. Melissa is here with me again for another bite-sized episode. So many of you mentioned in your comments that you love when Melissa joins me here and I’m very happy about that because I love doing the show with her. She, of course, has been with me throughout the whole journey here that I’ve been investigating life after death, over eighteen years.

Today’s episode is sponsored, as usual, by where you can find psychics and mediums and animal communicators and energy healers and tarot readers right there. Over 800 of them that have been carefully selected by me, I want to thank you all for the amazing support that you have given me in the launching of my new book, “The Magic Mala.” I am thrilled with the response that I’ve been getting. I want to thank Cheryl Richardson for doing the show with me last week. I actually changed the name. You know, originally I had the show’s title, it was something about Mala beads and the fact is, I think it was so much more than that. So much more than just about Mala beads and I think it was a little misleading. I changed the title to “Create More Magic In Your Life: Two Authors Share Their Secrets.” Really that’s a more accurate title.

I’d love to read just a couple of the reviews that we have on Amazon already. Cynthia Knott says, “This book is outstanding. Touches your heart and soul. I recommend everyone to read this book and feel the power of its uplifting effect. You start with page one and before you know it, you have read the whole book. This is one book you’ll read over and over again. Bob, you outdid yourself and you have a bestseller on your hands.” I certainly hope so Cynthia. That was very kind of you.

These are unsolicited reviews by the way. These are audience members of afterlifetv. These are not my personal friends or family members that I asked to put reviews up online. And so I am very grateful to you Cynthia and everyone. A couple of others, Alessandra Norden, Kathy and David K. I’ll read David Kay’s, very short, “This book is bound to change my life. One of the most profoundly impactful books I have ever read. There is not a person who could not benefit from reading this book.” From David K., his subject is “Phenomenal.” So thank you so much to everyone who left reviews on Amazon. I am grateful to you and it makes me excited. It makes Melissa excited when we see these high-energy reviews about people who are as excited about “The Magic Mala” as we are.

You know, it is a fictional book. It is a novel and yet I really consider it more like a non-fiction book, more like a self-help book that is teaching you things about life. As I’ve stated many times, this book is what I learned about life while investigating the afterlife. And I really feel as though it was something that I was inspired to write, something that came through me. And I think, literally, it can change people’s lives just as people have said in these reviews. So once again, thank you very much for all the support on that book. Now if you want to learn a little bit more, you can just go to, You can spell it any way you want but the proper way to spell it is B-0-B O-L-S-O-N.

If you go to the book page for “The Magic Mala,” this is a little secret not too many people know about, if you go there, there’s actually a really interesting audio that you can listen to about halfway down the page. And it’s my 13-year-old nephew Ryan. He was over. He had just read “The Magic Mala.” I asked him to read it to see if someone his age could understand it really and certainly, if they could enjoy it. He was able to do both of those things. He enjoyed it so much. I’ve told a little story in the last episode with Cheryl Richardson about what happened with him. But he was over at the house and I said, “Let’s just go downstairs and play around in the studio.” We were playing around and then at one point I just said, “Hey, you want to interview me about the book?” And I had no idea. It was really just for fun. This guy is amazing. Just to hear a 13-year-old interviewing me and understandably, he didn’t have any time to prepare. He didn’t know we were going to do this. He certainly didn’t have any notes written or questions written down. To listen to that, it’s worth it just in itself. Now, if you’ve read the book, then you’ll probably enjoy it even more because there’s some insight that you may not know about there.

So that’s just a little secret that not too many people know about and I think that you might enjoy, especially if you’re reading “The Magic Mala” now. “The Magic Mala” is on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle. You can go to Barnes and Noble. You can get it both paperback and Nook. And it’s also on iBooks and Kobo.

So today’s bite-sized episode, I think, kind of speaks for itself. And so why don’t we just go on to that. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks.

Ann: Hi everyone. This is Ann. My father passed in the end of March of 2016 and we were always connected very spiritually with each other with having coincidences. But after his funeral and selling the house, and coming home and just digesting what was happening, I was on the TV and I decided on a Sunday night to look at Antiques Road Show, which is on PBS. My father always loved that show and I enjoy it myself to see how many items my father had in his house that might be worth something. We always giggled over, “Oh look at the clock that they have” and “I have that sword” and things like that. So I’m in bed and I turned it on. And I’m not kidding you, an episode that my father had gone to and was taped in popped up and they were doing old reruns of the PBS special station “Antiques Road Show.”

So there in the background, I just happened to look up and I see my father walk back and forth behind the person that was being interviewed for their item and I could not believe it. And then I just turned and said, “Thanks Dad. Thanks for letting me know that you’re around me.” How I felt? Well, I was comforted, I always…and when I get signs from my mom and dad, it’s very nice and loving to know that they do know what’s going on in your life and they will help you through the darkest times when you’re struggling. So I think when we pay attention to the signs and I get names and trucks and numbers and everything else, I am clearly comforted by knowing that my loved ones are still with me at all times. Thank you.

Bob: All right, well, thank you so much Ann for sharing that with us. First of all, I want to say sorry about your father’s passing. That was just an incredible story. Now Melissa is here with me again. Welcome Melissa.

Melissa: Hello.

Bob: That was pretty incredible, right?

Melissa: Oh yeah. It was really amazing.

Bob: This is how good the signs can be. Have you had anything that amazing? Now, you get a lot of dreams, right?

Melissa: I think probably the experience that I had with David, our friend who passed many years ago, was probably the most amazing one I’ve had which was he was from England and I think it was a couple of days after his passing. I was on my way home and I asked him for a sign that he was okay. And on my way home I happened to stop and pick up sandwiches at a place that we went to often down the street from our house. And I walked in there and the girl, just out of the blue who was working there, handed me two coins and said, “Here. You want these?” And I didn’t know what she was giving me. It just looked like she was giving me two nickels or something. And I was wondering why she was giving them to me and I looked down and they were actually two British coins. I think they were pence. I can’t remember. It was a long time ago. I still have the coins though. I just immediately burst into tears. So it was a similar, powerful for me personally. And it was so instant and that’s what it seems like for Ann. It just “Bam!” It just hits you.

Bob: Yeah. Now what was significant about the coins. Was that part of the story? Did you tell that part of the story?

Melissa: Well, they were British coins and he was from England. So to me, I knew right off the bat that it was him giving me the sign that I needed.

Bob: That you asked for.

Melissa: That was enough for me.

Bob: Yeah, cool. The thing that I know a lot of people, when they hear these stories, they go, “Why don’t I get these kinds of signs or messages from my loved one? I would like them too.” And from my own experience, I recognize that I’m just not that kind of person who really notices everything in reference to that. So I think that…I believe that I probably have loved ones in spirit who, you know, get very frustrated with me sometimes when they send me these messages because I overlook them and I might not notice them like you or Ann would. You know, if that woman said, “Do you want these?” I’d say, “No.”

Melissa: Yeah, and I think speaking to that, knowing you personally, you spend a lot of time in your head. You know, there’s a lot going on mentally for you.

Bob: Yeah.

Melissa: So if you are that type of a person, that’s why it’s so important to take time to not be in your head, to do things where you aren’t in your head, so that you have the opportunity to recognize when these signs come.

Bob: And this is what the people talk about when they talk about being in the present moment. You know, really paying attention to your surroundings and what’s happening around you rather than always thinking about something else, whether it be the past, the future, whatever it may be.

Melissa: That could be a reason why some people, you know, are waiting for the signs but they don’t feel like they’re getting them. And I think that that’s a good question to ask yourself. Do I spend a lot of time in my head, thinking mentally?

Bob: Yeah. So for Ann to…you know, the show comes on and she notices her father is in the background. Maybe many people would have, but if you’re thinking about something else while it’s there, if you’re deep in grief, and…

Melissa: That can happen a lot.

Bob: …you could have missed that. So the coincidence of Ann turning that show on after all that she had been through, and it happened to be the one show that her father was on, is amazing. Now she was also drawn to want to watch that. So she’s drawn to it. So she’s following an intuitive impulse…

Melissa: That’s right.

Bob: …that she might not even have really known was an intuitive impulse but she follows that, turns it on, and there’s this great comforting message for her. The other reason I think that some people don’t get these messages is because they’re not supposed to. So I believe that sometimes these things don’t happen because they are leading us in a direction. We need to go in a certain direction and if we got these messages, we might not go there. And I’ve talked about that in a former episode. As an example, this is just one example, there could be many. For instance, if the best thing for us would be to actually go to a medium because we’re going to get a lot of evidence by going to a medium, and that’s going to help us move further along than seeing signs and signals that we can maybe easily just…

Melissa: Right off.

Bob: …chalk up to coincidence.Yeah right off.

Melissa: Absolutely. You’re very intentional about what you’re doing. So you’re setting aside this amount of time that you are going to spend with your loved one through the medium and you’re going to be focused on that and present with that. And that can be just as powerful as them sending messages to you and you getting them on your own.

Bob: Exactly. Ann, thank you so much for sharing that.

Melissa: Yeah, and thanks so much Ann, for sharing. I have to say, you know, we listened to your story twice. Both times, I had chills that went right through my body and I was really genuinely happy for you that you got to have that experience.

Bob: So that’s it for this afterlifetv episode. Please join us at and look at all of our previous episodes. There’s a lot of them there. And you can also listen to us on iTunes as a podcast, if you’re familiar with podcasting at all. A lot of people just like to listen to us on their way to work, back and forth. These are again, little bite-sized episodes. We’ll have longer ones along the way.

So check us out and leave us comments, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Let us know what you think. And before we go, a little final reminder about “The Magic Mala,” a brand new book out last week. “The Magic Mala,” the subtitle is a story that changes lives. Thus far, that’s the feedback that we’re getting from people. They really, truly believe that this book has some life-changing information in it and they’re very excited about it. You can find out more at and you can just go to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks or Kobo to purchase it. Okay. Thanks again and I hope you have a wonderful week. Bye now.
