Signs. I love them. I wholeheartedly believe in them.
This afternoon I was exhausted and was getting ready for my "second shift" as I call it...Personal training and teaching my night classes.
I laid down to take a little nap before, and dreamed of my mom. She was her usual energetic self...she always is in my dreams. It was like I was having a real conversation with her, in real time, telling her my everyday thoughts, frustrations.....etc. It was so real.
As I stepped outside out my apartment, a beautiful butterfly was flapping its pretty little wings right in front of me. Natalie always mentions her daughters sign is a butterfly, and I always think of her when I see one. But lately it also makes me think of my mom :)
A few minutes later as I was driving, the tiniest, cutest, little yellow flower hopped on to my window and then drifted off.
Lastly....I ALWAYS ask for feathers as a sign of my mom being around. First my clients pointed out to me all of the peacock feathers they just collected from the peacocks hanging around their yard, and then right in front of my eyes 3 other feathers appeared.
This happened to me when I wasn't exactly asking or even begging for it. I always ask for it on a daily basis...but from all of the other research I've done on this topic....you have to be in a good energy state to even see and receive signs like this.
There is no doubt in my mind, that when I dream of her, she is around me. That when I see signs like that, and actually feel something, she is around me.
If you are 13, 20, or 60 years old, losing someone close to you is hard. But there are signs, and I believe in them. All you have to do is ask.
