I was walking our dog Spunky yesterday and 4 birds in flight caught my attention. They were traveling high & fast in a straightline. Shortly behind were 2 also in straight lines trying to catch up. I'm just walking along thinking that probably one had stopped for some reason & the other stayed behind and now together they will catch up with the others for their trip. Suddenly this delicate feather comes floating down towards me. It came about eye level and just softly floated in almost a rocking motion for several seconds. I'm in awe watching it. Then gently it lifts & goes over my head and soon disapears. I'm rather shocked as what was the odds of one of them losing a feather and it coming and floating in front of me. Seemed more than just a coincidence at the time.
Then last night I had a dream. In the dream there's a rather plain grey background and the focus is a feather just floating in space. A man's voice tells me "When you see a floating feather it's bringing a message from heaven." Then suddenly a gold "MERRY CHRISTMAS" took it's place. I woke up and was thinking how odd that was after seeing the feather. I know the Merry Christmas is belated but maybe just finally worked out for Nicky to bring the message to me.
Nicky's birthday January 4th
Nicky does send me feathers and before Christmas (Dec. 16th) I found a white, fluffy feather in my kitchen. Also shortly after Nicky's passing I had a vision of a floating feather which later actually took place exactly the same as I had seen when I went to the cemetery. We never could figure out why the vision and actual happening other than just Nicky letting me know that he was connecting with me.
Now last night I crawled into bed and then it hit me! December 16th was my mother-in-law's 9th angelversary! Bonnie's sign is the first one I ever realized I had received from a loved one. The morning of Dec. 16, 1999 I was up at 5 AM. I opened the refrigerater and was surprised to smell a beautiful fragrance of flowers. I went to pour my coffee and the phone rang. Frank had stayed at the nursing home that night since his mother was near the end. He was calling to tell me that Bonnie just died. I went and opened the refrigerator and the fragrance was gone. I knew it had to be from Bonnie. How appropriate the feather in the kitchen on her angelversary.
Thank you, Jane, for this following message: I just finished reading a book by James Van Praugh, he says feathers are one of the most common gifts sent to us by our loved ones.......... they are sacred and especially if they come at significant times. So, I thought it was interesting that Nicky sent this now....... when your mind is so full of him. He's sending you a symbol of his love and to let you know that the connection you share with him is truly unbroken.
