I hear this said all the time, that someone came back as a butterfly, an owl ... a white squirrel even,(;-), to send a meaningful message to a loved one, or a sign that they are OK.
And I get what that person is trying to say when they say it.
It's not that their loved one has reincarnated as the animal in question, it's just that somehow the universe has aligned in such a way as to deliver a personal message ... a synchronicity.
He's not actually saying that Linda IS the squirrel, but that somehow she has used the squirrel as a messenger in some universal language that connects the encounter personally to bring meaning and comfort into his life, and maybe to think a little deeper about just what life is all about anyway.
I've written about my own meaningful coincidences with butterflies that seemed to me anyway, to bring a personal message from beyond the veil -
There is Harmony in Everything, It's a Butterfly Who Waits for the World?
|The Crow Butterfly outside my kitchen window in 2017|
Just a coincidence ... or a "meaningful" coincidence?
Robin at Son's Grave Moves Mum to Tears
|Mrs Robinson's robin|
|Sgt. Pepper's Only Dart Board Band|
|Synchronicity: The illusive elephant in the room?-)|
|The scene in 'The Meg' where the film jammed when I saw it at the cinema|
Mind Sharks in the 'Year of the Dog'?
I'm not into Christianity that much personally, but I do see those "hidden words" in the title of that movie though;-)
I'm not religious, just spiritual, as most people like to say these days, including me.
And in another personal synchronicity I find it amusing that Paul's confession is in a newspaper spread that features a story about cab drivers and their battle with Uber.
My father who was a cab driver and licence owner a one stage of his life would have been very unhappy to see this situation in the cab industry.
I hate Uber and would never get an Uber ride on principal.
Uber ambulance drivers?
|The obituary of Robin Leach in the same newspaper as Paul's story?!|

Anyway, if you can't see that there is a lot more to life than meets the eye, then I can't really help you out, can eye?-)
|As you can see from the condition of its pages I haven't read this book before today|
Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Doreen Virtue and Deepak Chopra when they came to Brisbane years ago, which I attended (thanks to the tickets I won through the newspaper) with my father-in-law at the time (who has since passed away) -
Whatever Happened to Doreen Virtue?
I feel sorry for Doreen, as her timeline seems to be running right to left these days, but then again she probably feels sorry for me too, as I'm sure she thinks I'm heading straight to hell where-ever that's meant to be in her imagination.
Phew, is it getting a little hot in here or is it just me?-)

And don't worry Doreen if you are reading this post, because it ain't the "beast" that you would probably have in your mind, either.
Well, that's enough of my nutty thoughts as far as this post goes.
And I better get going before I get a visit from a white squirrel who thinks I'm a nut;-)
