Understanding Symbols and Signs from Angels & Deceased Loved Ones

By Linda Pendleton ©

angel How do angelic messages come to us? Many believe, I included, that butterflies are the most common sign or symbol communicated from our guardian angels or deceased loved. And I believe birds are not far behind.

quotes Death is simply a shedding of the physical body like the butterfly shedding its cocoon. ~ Kübler-Ross quotes

It does seem mystical and magical when, following the recent passing of a loved one, a beautiful butterfly or bird appears before us and catches our attention. And not only have I had my own mystical experiences with these symbols but I have often heard similar stories from friends and students. One such story comes to mind. After I had attended the memorial church service of the husband of a dear friend, I was invited to their home. Soon as I walked in, my friend grabbed me by the arm and said, "Linda, you have to see this!" She took me into her bedroom and to the glass patio door which opened onto an outside upper wooden deck. A tree grew up not far from the deck. "There, see that beautiful yellow butterfly. It has been here all morning, even before I left for the memorial service," she excitedly told me. "I just know it is Bill." She continued, "Bill and I have spent a lot of time out here on this deck and I've never seen a butterfly here before; never." She and I stood there holding hands for several minutes, watching the flutter of delicate paper thin wings whispering sounds of love through the air.

Has a bird or a butterfly ever come to you shortly after the death of your loved one? It may be one way we receive communication from the other side. Although this is somewhat subtle, many recognize it and know it is a message of love. I have no explanation how a spirit on the other side has the ability to change into another form such as a bird or butterfly or a being of light, but apparently they can and do. It is an amazing transformation. Spirit can send a beautiful butterfly or an eagle or a dove, or they can transform into one.

quotes Angels are spirits, but it is not because they are spirits that they are angels. They become Angels when they are sent. For the name Angel refers to their office, not their nature. You ask the name of this nature, it is spirit; it is that of an Angel, which is a messenger. ~ Saint Augustine (354-430) quotes

The people I have personally known to have had these kinds of experiences have found comfort and peace in these signs or symbols. These "messengers" have come in the form of a dove, a pigeon, a quail, butterfly, and even a chirpy little sparrow; or occasionally, the sign or symbol is a lone feather.

Symbols or signs from angels or deceased love one can also come to us as a vivid picture, in much the way images might appear on a television screen, or simply as visions in the mind. They do often come as symbols we would personally recognize. Over time, our guardian angel might repeatedly use the same symbol to signify a particular item or word, something we've become accustomed to understanding the meaning of.

Any time you have the desire to communicate with your angels (and I always include loved ones), ask for a special showing, not only of a vivid symbol of communication, but for the flutter of wings - a special butterfly, a special bird, or a special winged angel. Why not?
