Daz, who comments frequently here, left this synchronicity under a post with dozens of comments. We didn’t want it to get lost, so we’ve made it a separate post. There’s a synchronicity on our end, too, with this story.
A few days ago, Daz’s father-in-law, John, died suddenly of a heart attack that came out of the blue. “He often said he didn’t believe in life after death. and my wife is a fence sitter on the subject, but I would like to pass on this synchronicity which happened today, which was quite a remarkable ‘coincidence.’ John loved to feed the wild parrots, magpies, kookaburras and other birds that would drop by his house every day. They actually sat near his veranda railing, waiting to be fed.
“Just earlier this week, my mother-in-law was telling us all today how he loved when the parrots would do their mating dance and he would imitate the male who would wobble up behind the female and then flap it’s wings up and down (a bit like a dirty old man flapping his raincoat). This would send him into hysterics.
“I was going to say then (but I didn’t) that maybe we should look for a sign involving a parrot, since this was an animal he often joked about coming back as, even though he believed once you are dead you are dead.
“Anyway, my mother-in-law wanted to have the TV going to try and take her mind off the raw emotion and it was on “Australia’s Funniest Home Videos” and what should come on the screen…you probably guessed it…two parrots trying their mating dance out on an artificial parrot. What are the odds?
“It’s amazing how synchronous events like this can bring some comfort in a time of crisis, not so much for me, as I already believed in an afterlife, but to my wife and mother-in-Law. I also bought a copy of “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill” this week because it was on special from $34 to $10,which I am going to watch now, because I haven’t ever seen it before and I have had it on my to-do list for years and what better time than now?
“Farewell John. We’ll miss you.”
When Daz’s comment was posted, I was working on a chapter in our new book called Animals Attuned, about how animals are often vehicles for spirit contact. I was thinking I was going to be short on stories and hoped I could find one more that involved birds. Daz provided it. Thank you, Daz and John! Here’s a video of the mating dance he refers to.
