A beautiful confirmation sign in nature...
We were out on his patio, preparing burgers and chatting, when a bird began to chirp loudly from a nearby tree. We looked up to behold a beautiful Northern Cardinal, which is a bird I have rarely, if ever, seen in person. I wondered what it could mean.
I picked up my phone and Googled the symbolic meaning of the Cardinal, and the most common interpretation is that they are a symbol of communication with the spirit world, something I have recently refined with the Holy Spirit. Then I grabbed my deck of tarot cards and drew the Emperor card, the archetype that best represents my recently deceased teacher friend, and channeled - "He's in touch, he watches over you from time to time, this is real!" Interesting event that was a little nod from Spirit, it felt like a true confirmation, since Cardinals aren't as common as other bird species in this city. The teacher friend visits often because he delights in the fact that we can converse, which I don't think he is able to do with anyone else, and the stuff I channel sometimes makes him laugh because it can be a bit wonky - I get a laughter response through my body.
Dad needs to come visit again soon, so I can try channeling a conversation with him as well. He loved to travel in life, so perhaps he's visiting various famous sites right now.
