One Feather from an Angel = Instant Mood Adjustment

The other day, I had a bad moment.

I let a little irritation get me down.One Little White Feather from an Angel We all have them once in a while.

I let a little frustration spiral out into other negative emotions, which begets other negative emotions and on and on.

It feels bad to be irritated. I would much rather be happy.

I am driving … well … sitting in traffic trying to drive through downtown (during rush hour… not always a smart choice, but I was heading towards my weekly intuition class so I was looking forward to the destination). I am slowly moving through a section of downtown where if you do not pay attention, you will end up on a highway in the total wrong direction … crossing over two lanes of traffic to the left … merging right … crossing back over two more lanes ….  trying to get in the left lane so I can enter one of our tunnels here in Pittsburgh … you get the picture. Not an easy drive.

Meanwhile, I am sitting there in traffic feeling bad for myself, trying to find something positive to bring me out of this icky mood.

At this point in the drive I am on a bridge over one of our rivers … just sitting and waiting in traffic. I worry I will be late to class. I hear the roar of cars drive on the overpass above me. I wonder why we are sitting still. I look around and think of all the concrete they must have used to build all of this.

I start flipping channels on the radio to try to find a song … any song … they (the radio stations) know we sit in traffic at this time of day … there are so many commercials!

Then, something wondrous happens. A little white feather floats by, just in front of my car. It wisps around.   It seems like minutes pass by in slow motion, although I am sure it was mere seconds.

The feather floats directly in front of my path – going from right to left across all four lanes … only to dance on a little wind and float up over the side.

POOF! Then, it was gone.

Just then, a song starts playing and I hear the words blare, “The Best Day of My Life.”

My lips form a smile as my scrunched up face softens. I am instantly happier. You see, I know when I see a random feather, it is a sign from above. It is a sign from an angel letting me know I am loved.

A simple reminder.

Just like that, I feel better. I let out a little laugh and wonder why was I so irritated and how did I let someone else decide how I feel.

I brush it of and start to sing the song.

Life does get better. Just … like … that.

One feather and the perfect timing of a song.

The traffic starts to move.

    Messages from angels!!

    A few years ago I had a few months of seeing these white features in the most unexpected places whilst I was feeling down.

    My angels when I needed them most.

    I always sing along with that song on the radio. More songs should have positive lyrics like that. Love the feather sign.

    LOVE. THIS. I get the signs from my deceased father too. I used to question if they were REALLY signs but of course, I know for sure now. There are no coincidences, things happen when they are supposed to, all lessons to be learned. We may not know it at the time, but later on we will look back and understand. Thanks for writing, I have similar postsl
