Robins Comfort The Bereaved

I have published many posts about white feathers and how - for some - they appear to be contact from a loved one who has died. Today a similar theme but this time, instead of white feathers, it is a robin who is the messenger. The short story is from Sarah:

I have been told, when someone dies robins are a sign from the spiritual world that the person is still here. A true tale ...

A little while after my father passed, a robin flew into our house (through the kitchen back door) and upstairs into my bedroom and perched on a photo of my father! 

It was amazing and beautiful. An unforgettable treasured memory. Especially now, as a Robin always seems to appear at significant moments.

Life is wonderfully strange and unfathomable.

  1. I wrote a post called 'Robin at Son's Grave Moves Mum to Tears', which actually brought me to tears -

    And I was also listening to Dr.Bernie Beitman interviewing Tara MacIsaac -

    And she said that birds were the most common messenger for sending a comforting message from the deceased.

  2. A beautiful story! I've heard several other people mention robins in this context, too.

  3. Love this post!

  4. Alternatively, a robin is cool, just by itself.
