'Action from a dead people' in a more poetic way


New Member
Hi everyone.
English is not my mother tong, and I was wandering :

How can you express something like :
" The man was talking to us from
- Above the ground
- From the sky
- From heaven
- From the other world
- From the land of death

- ..."

Meaning being, the man is dead, and somehow, he's sending us a message (had it all prepared).
I'm looking for an idiom, or a way to say so in a poetic (or at least a neutral) manner.

Above the ground sounds a bit like a zombie movie to me. From the sky doesn't make it clear that the person is dead. From heaven is quite religious, and the other world is quite vague. I can't really rely on the context here, since the sentence won't have any.

French is my mother tong, and we have quite a few words to denominate the land of death.

I was just hopping someone would give me a few example of saying such a thing.

Thank you for any answer.

    I agree with "from beyond," or possibly even "from beyond the grave."

    And I think that perhaps French is your mother tongue, which is why you were wondering. :) Welcome to the forum, Lutshow.
