Many years ago, I was asking my brother for a sign from the spirit world that he was still around. It had been a few years since I’d had an amazing initial contact, one of which was the time I saw Doris Stokes. A decade along, things had been pretty quiet, so I reached out for him once again, asking for a sign. Before he had died, he had worked as a fisherman and found a tiny seahorse caught in the nets. He had it gold plated for his girlfriend. I thought the seahorse was a pretty good sign, yet I kept this to myself.
One day shortly after, I was walking on a beach near Newcastle in early 2002 with a friend who did aura photography. He looked at me and said ‘I’m just going to take a walk up here’ and off he went, wandering among the sand dunes. About 10 minutes later we caught up again and he said to me ‘close your eyes I have a surprise for you’. I closed my eyes, and when I opened them he had placed in my hands a large seahorse about a foot long! I couldn’t believe my eyes!! What were the chances of that happening? I jumped for joy and then relayed to him the story of my brother and how I’d been asking for a sign.
This was no ordinary sign to me, it was a massive significant one! After that, I literally bumped into seahorses, patterns on towels, signs on cars, plaques on the walls of gift shops everywhere I went. When I was in Monaco, I decided to visit the Jacque Cousteu museum. I paid my fare and excitedly walked in, took some stairs down into a darkened room and the very first aquarium I came to was filled with seahorses. I literally stood there and cried, mesmerised by their eloquent beauty and thanking my brother for the guidance.
So when my mum passed over, I thought our sign would be a red rose, as that was her favourite flower and colour. Yet, nearly every time, I am speaking about my mother, a large butterfly will cross my path. Recently I was on the phone to a friend who asked me ‘so how old are you this year?’ I literally said ‘God knows how I got to be this age! I’m nearly 58!’ when a massive butterfly came out of nowhere and flew directly at my face! Another day I was waiting for my sister to arrive and decided to sit outside in the winter sunshine. I sat for about 10 minutes when suddenly a butterfly appeared, fluttering her wings and sat beside me on a blade of grass. I was watching it with the curiosity of a child and right at that moment my sister’s car pulled into the driveway.
I have friends who would pass this off as pure co-incidence. Fair enough. That is their journey and opinion.
It has happened too many times for me to pass it off as inconsequential. I view it as the world of spirit sharing, coming close to us in the only way they can via other creatures… They come in on signs hoping that we will notice them. It gives us the opportunity to pause, reflect, smile and say hi. Notice your signs.
