Have you ever received a “hello from heaven”?
Some people believe that after someone dies, they can send a message or a sign to a loved one they left behind. These messages are to bring peace to the recipient as a sign their loved one is in heaven. They are known as ADC – after death communication.
Some common signs are butterflies or dragonflies, rainbows, cardinals, or even when a deceased love on appears in your dreams. It could be a song, or a physical object that is a significant reminder of your loved one. You will know if it is a special sign. You will feel it is a special gift to you.
Butterflies are my favourite sign as they represent re-birth and transformation. They are a true sign of incredible beauty and freedom that emerges from a slow-moving caterpillar with little purpose to a cocoon of darkness awaiting beautiful transformation.
Butterflies are also significant to me and my husband as we were sent a butterfly on our wedding day.
The Butterfly Story
The day of our wedding was a beautiful, sunny day in September. All of our family and friends were there with us to witness and celebrate in our special day. Well, everyone except my husband’s father. Sadly, he had passed away just five months before our wedding day.
Although he could not make it to our wedding, I do believe he sent us an extraordinary gift. It was a moment I will cherish forever.
I had just walked down the aisle to meet my husband-to-be at the front of the church. The minister greeted all of our guests and then stopped mid-sentence. He announced, “We have an unexpected guest!” and pointed to a butterfly that flew in from the back of the church and over the “groom’s side” of the pews. Everyone turned to catch sight of the butterfly. It was a very beautiful moment. It fluttered around for a moment or two and then was gone.
Our hearts were full of joy and I knew right away it was a special gift. It was a “hello from heaven”. It was a sign. It was a gift. Whatever you want to call it, it was special to us and will never be forgotten.
