The spirits are able to communicate immediately. There is no time of adjustment needed for the spirits to reach out, and very often they are as eager to reach out to us at those first critical hours as we are to hear from them. The issue is not with the spirits, but with the bereaved who may not be ready to communicate with someone who has just passed. The right time to make communication, is after some time and perspective is gained for yourself to come to terms with the loss.
