Stardust Messages


Several years ago my husband and I made the desk top background on our computer this sky scene and added a line from a Gregory and the Hawks song called "Boats and Birds."  The line is "If You'll Be My Star, I'll Be Your Sky." That line so beautifully expresses the way I feel about my angel son, Graham. I hadn't listened to this song in a long time. This morning I decided to listen to it again. I was brought to tears of amazement when I heard the line, "just leave me your stardust to remember you by." Just a week or so ago I wrote a poem I titled "Trail of Stardust!" I didn't remember that line in the song.
There are so many signs, symbols, messages and synchronicities that come from the other side. I feel they are miracles that help expand our minds to understanding that there is so much more than what we perceive through our five senses. Our loved ones in spirit are helping us to understand this. Love truly is always and forever.

WOW! This afternoon after posting this to the Facebook group, Signs From Our Loved Ones, I went to the mall. When I was walking through the mall to leave I heard this special song play, "Bright," by Echosmith.  I love this song.  I have it on my iTunes play list of songs for Graham.   Guess what one of the lines in this song is? "You sprinkle stardust on my pillow case!" Thank you, Graham, my darling angel boy. I am following your trail of stardust.  xoxo

"All of Me" song message


Last Sunday I had a message from a Facebook friend in Canada. She said that she had been reading my blog on Saturday. That evening she and her husband were out in a large public place. When she went into the washroom she heard the song, "All of Me," by John Legend play.
  

This really struck her because this song is special to me and was on one of my blog posts that she had read earlier that day about my angel son, Graham. She said that this normally very busy washroom was totally empty and quiet. That's why she heard the song. She said it's the only song that she could clearly make out that entire evening. My friend lost a young son years ago. She said she felt her son at that moment saying, yes, mommy, yes. What a beautiful sign and message of love from our two dear sons. 

The other day I was having lunch with a special long time friend at a downtown restaurant. I was sharing this story with her as we were sitting enjoying our lunch. In the next minute, I kid you not, "All of Me" played in the restaurant! I just sat there and cried in love and gratitude. What beautiful validation from my darling angel boy that love is always and forever.

Trail of Stardust


"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
Ralph Waldo Emerson


For Graham, my treasured trailblazer.  I love you.


Trail of Stardust

You scatter stardust wherever you go,
Leaving a glittering trail to follow,
It’s magical and sparkling with incandescent light,
Brightening up the sky at night.

In the moon’s soft glow or the sunshine’s rays,
Your shimmering trail is wherever I gaze,
Around the planets, stars, and constellations,
I feel your love and elation.

Unfettered, your soul is free,
Promising you wait for me,
With trails of stardust, your love’s reflection,
In heavenly joy and our heart’s connection.

To Dance With The White Dog



Some months back a Signs From Our Loved Ones member mentioned "To Dance With The White Dog" was one of her favorite movies. I had never heard of it. It's a little old so it's not available for streaming. The other day when I was in a Hallmark store that I don't usually go to I saw this movie on a shelf! I had to buy it. My husband and I watched this sweet movie last night. It has a beautiful message of eternal love. We felt it was very meaningful. You might like to watch it too. Here is a trailer for it.

Doves and Feathers


This afternoon my husband and I were out and about. As we were driving we saw a license plate on a car that read WYT DOVE (White Dove). We wondered if that could be a sign for us. Doves are very symbolic. Some of the symbols for dove are eternity, mother, love, and peace. Here is a link if you would like to read more about dove symbolism - http://www.whats-your-sign.com/dove-symbolism.html
A little later we were at a shopping center and came to a stop beside a van that had a graphic of two white doves on the back window! We knew then this was definitely a message; I took a picture and uploaded with this post.

When we were returning home we couldn't believe it when we noticed the car in front of us had a white feather on top of it where the car antenna is. That was so unusual and tied directly into our previous two signs with white doves. We were talking about this amazing sequence of events with these series of signs as we continued driving home.

When we got to our house I picked up our mail. There was an envelope from an American Indian school that I opened. Inside there was an assortment of cards. The first card on top was a picture of a dream catcher with feathers! 
 


As if that wasn't significant enough, the message inside the card read "Thinking of you and sending pleasant thoughts your way." Wow! At this point I just stood there and cried and thanked my beautiful angel boy, Graham. I miss his physical presence every minute but Graham shows me he is alive and well and continues to be with me in spirit. There is no power greater than love. Love is the bridge between us here on earth and our loved ones in heaven.

Earlier in the week a friend of mine who is also a medium said that Graham told her to tell me to be looking for signs from him with flowers, trees, birds, and possibly a letter or a card. What a terrific validation this was. Stay open to all possibilities. We are never alone. Our loved ones are right beside us.

All Of Me Loves All Of You

I love the beautiful song, "All of Me" by John Legend. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mk7-GRWq7wA It really speaks to my heart. I feel that it's a message from my dear son, Graham, every time I hear it. The song expresses my feelings with him too.
I was in my local Hallmark store today and saw this plaque. The words to this special song are on it! I just had to smile and take a picture to share with everyone. Messages are everywhere for us from our loved ones in spirit. We just need to be aware.

My Birthday Signs



Graham, my son in spirit, had a Mazda Miata that he loved.  A couple of days ago my husband said he followed a Mazda Miata in a parking lot.  He was going to buy me a card and present for my birthday.   The car dealership name on the car was the same as our last name - Stevenson.  My husband said he felt like Graham was accompanying him while he was doing this birthday shopping for me. 

Yesterday was my birthday.  I stopped by a store where a friend of mine works.  She wanted me to come by because she had a birthday gift she wanted to give me.  As I was walking to the store I saw a Mazda Miata with pop-up lights like the model my son drove parked in front of the store. Our sweet boy wanted us to know that he is still here and celebrating my birthday too.  What comfort on a bittersweet day.   Love is always and forever.

A Tiny Feather Pick-Me-Up

The weather was beautiful today.  My husband and I decided to go to a garden center this afternoon to look at the flowers.  I was looking at a very pretty pot of red geraniums to put beside my front door.  I was delighted to find a tiny feather in the leaves!  I was feeling sad today and this was such a great little pick me up.  Our loved ones in spirit  know when we need some comfort.  Thank you, Graham, my sweet boy.  Your love and signs and messages are what keep me going.

No Limits

I noticed this business van in front of me today while driving. The company name made me immediately think of my poem, "Celestial Realms."  I often quote the last two lines in this poem as the inscription when I sign my books:

Love can’t be measured by hours or minutes,
Love has no boundaries, love has no limits.


Thank you Graham, my dear son, for this wonderful sign.  I have certainly been learning this truth.  Love has no limits.

Celestial Realms

You can now be found,
In Heaven’s celestial realms,
No longer bound by earthly cares,
Trouble-free and light as air.

Happy, and where you are meant to be,
In the plan of eternity,
Having made that highest climb,
Living in joy sublime.

I envy you your new birth,
It’s hard living on this earth,
And with you no longer here,
My days are filled with many tears.

I am trusting in a Divine plan,
Believing our lives are in God’s hands,
Finding faith to persevere,
Praying life’s meaning becomes more clear.

I want to be happy too,
Even though I can’t be with you,
You are with me in other ways,
I feel your presence every day.

Run amidst the moon and stars,
We are together wherever we are,
Love can’t be measured by hours or minutes,
Love has no boundaries, love has no limits.

This Is Not A Pipe - A sign from my son.


This is one of the more amazing signs from my son.  He was a Graphic Design major in college.  One of his assignments was to create a handmade book illustrating a story with photographs.  Graham chose to make a book with photos that he took of his good friend who was a pipe smoker.  Graham showed the start to finish process of his friend preparing and smoking a pipe.  For the cover photo of his book he chose an iconic image in Art circles, Rene' Magritte's image of a pipe with the words "Ceci n'est pas une pipe".  The translation is, "This is not a pipe." 

A few days ago a friend recommended we watch the movie, "The Fault In Our Stars."  My husband and I watched it last night on one of the cable movie channels on TV.  This movie is about two teenagers that have cancer.  I don't think I would have watched it if she hadn't recommended it.  It turned out to be a very good movie with a lot of food for thought. 

About three quarters of the way through the movie my husband and I looked at each other in surprised amazement.  In one of the scenes the lead actress is wearing a T-shirt with the Rene' Magritte pipe and caption!  The first picture above is from the movie, and the second is the cover of Graham's project.  


I am continually awed by the ways our loved ones in spirit manage to bring us their signs and messages.  There is no power stronger than love.  Believe in the magic of love.

Ascending Butterfly Scarf



Yesterday I received a gift in the mail.  It was a lovely butterfly scarf from a special friend, Cindy Adkins.  A prayer card accompanied the scarf.  The prayer was beautiful.  It says, "As my loved one's soul ascended toward heaven, it did not erase the strong bond between us. Lord, I thank you for that connection and wear this scarf in remembrance of them.  Amen."  Cindy has a wonderful Facebook page called Angels At My Door, at https://www.facebook.com/AngelsAtMyDoor.  It is an inspirational and comforting page for the grieving.
After reading the prayer card I placed the scarf around my neck.  I was standing in my kitchen with tears streaming down my face.  It was a very emotional moment.  I could feel my son's presence.  I was listening to iTunes on my computer and at this same time I heard the song Silent Lucidity by Queensryche play.  It's one of a 120 songs that I have on an iTunes play list of songs for my son.  I knew for that particular song to play at that exact moment was not coincidental.  Today I looked up the lyrics and was once again in tears, this time of amazement.  Some of the lines from this song that speak to my heart are, "I will be watching over you, I am going to  see you through," and "If you open your eyes for me, you won't rely on open eyes to see."  What a powerful message from my son!  The prayer and the song are about connection.

Thank you, Graham, my sweet boy.  I love you more than I can say.  My eyes are open for you.

Divine Synchronicities

Yesterday morning I was standing at my stove starting to cook my breakfast.  I turned on the light above the range top (the picture shows the light).  Occasionally this light has gone off and then come back on a few minutes later.  I have wondered if this could be my son or just something with the light.  This morning the light did something that it has never done before.  The light went off, came back on, went out, and came back on, all within a few seconds.  I immediately felt that it was my son saying good morning.  I then had the thought that this was like Morse Code and wondered if it could be another way of communicating across dimensions.  I knew that could be done by sound or light. One thing led to another.  Later during the day I remembered a movie we had seen some years back that involved communication from passed loved ones using Morse Code. 

When I mentioned all this to my husband after he got home from work he said we had that movie on DVD.  I had forgotten about the DVD.  It is called "A Rumor Of Angels."  Watch the video short of this movie that is on this link - http://www.amazon.com/A-Rumor-Angels-Vanessa-Redgrave/dp/B000065U31.  It's a remarkable movie.   We watched the end of this movie that night because I was sure this was all a message.  In the credits at the end we noticed something we didn't see before.  This movie was based on a book by a mother who lost a son in the First World War.  It is about how she and her son communicated by using Morse Code after he passed!  We found the book and have ordered it; it's available from Amazon.com at http://www.amazon.com/Thy-Son-Liveth-Messages-Afterlife-ebook/dp/B00M2627U6/.  I am blown away.  At the end of the movie the message the woman gives the young boy is - "Don't grieve. Grief is remorse for things undone.  I'm closer to you now than I've ever been.  The ties of love continue.  I'll always be with you.  Speak with me as if you could see my face." My tears were flowing at that point.  I find it interesting too that I posted my "Always and Forever" poem yesterday to the Signs From Our Loved Ones Facebook group.  Love truly does transcend space and time. Follow the trails our loved ones give us. 

Tonight, when my husband was driving home from his commuter train station, he had SiriusXM radio on, and switched to the "40's on 4" channel. After a song played the announcer came on and said to contact them by sending an email, or to use their favorite means of communication, Morse Code. This was followed by a short clip of the sounds of Morse Code.   He was so surprised to hear this after all the Morse Code connections we experienced yesterday.  This is divine synchronicity.  We know that was our son, Graham.  God bless us all and our loved ones in spirit.

A Spirit-FIlled Moment


Yesterday I went to visit a dear friend who works in a jewelry store.  I bought an "Endless Love" bracelet and three charms there a couple of months ago as a memorial bracelet for my son.  While I was there I decided to look at the charms to see if there were any others that I might like to add to the bracelet.  

I was looking at a star charm that had a small blue stone in it.  I told the salesperson that I liked this because I thought it was the birthstone for my son who was born in March.  She said yes, an aquamarine is the birthstone for March.  She then asked me when my son's birthday was and I replied March 30th.  She looked at me in surprise and said that was her birthday too! 

I then told her that the star was also special for me because of a poem that my friend wrote for me after my son passed.  The first line in the poem is, "He was a bright and shining star."  I had the tray ceiling in my bedroom painted as the night sky after my son passed.  It has a full moon and stars and a shooting star in it.  She then looked at me and said, "I have a shooting star tattoo on my leg!"  She had goosebumps.  By this time my tears were flowing and she was teary eyed too.  I told her that she was my sign from Graham today.  We hugged each other and knew that what had just happened was a very special spirit-filled moment.  Graham always finds ways to let me know that he is with me.  Our loved ones in spirit are alive and well and continue to be a part of our lives.  They want us to know this.  Love never dies.  Thank you, Graham, my sweet boy.  Every charm brings a loving thought of you.
