Coincidence or a message - I'm choosing to believe its a message!

I just wanted to share an enormous coincidence that I'm taking as a sign from my late mum, do please share any you have if you would like!

Background: my mum was Welsh and she used to sing songs in Welsh. My favourite was si hei lwli (sp?). Mum explained that a line in the song puzzled her when she was little, as the word for "deck" was the same as the word for "table", so she thought the line "the captain is on the deck" was actually "the captain is on the table".

Recently, I was playing a card game called Fluxx. To win, you have to meet the criteria the "goal card". For example, you might need to have a specific card in front of you and another specific card must also be in play but not necessarily by you. One of the goal cards I picked said (I paraphrase) "you win if you hold X card and *the captain is on the table*".

It's just too specific and random a phrase!

agree with Twizzle, this is exactly how signs are provided

Yes definitely, had you been thinking or talking about her?

I get all sorts of coincidences crop up. You just have to tune in and look out for the signs. It's great fun! Go with the flow and keep your thoughts to yourself. People have a tendency to think you are odd otherwise...

I don't have anything to add but love the post and will be watching for other comments smile I always want signs and messages from my loved ones but don't often get any if at all

That's nice smile

My grandfather died last year and soon after I had a dream that I was on a boat on a river. I walked to the front of the boat and he was standing there, looking out at the water. I said 'Hello. What are you doing here?' and he said 'Oh, I've been here a while. It's nice. I like it here.' Then I woke up.

To be honest, I'm not really sure I believe in signs from the dead or anything like that, but it was a nice dream anyway smile

That is a lovely dream Margaret.

I remember a nice dream about my mum - I was at a medieval poetry festival and met my parents there. I didn't remember that mum was dead, just that I'd not seen her for a long time & was so happy to see her. We sat next to each other and held hands tightly. I could see her hand so clearly. It was very comforting.

I'm taking this as a "hi" too! A couple of nights ago, I had a lucid dream. I dreamt that I was at my primary school. I wondered what I was doing there & thought "oh it's because I'm 7 - no I'm not, I'm a grown up! This is a dream, I'll see if I can find mum" but I didn't see her. I wandered around in long grass behind one of the outbuildings with DD1 not knowing how to call mum into the dream.

This morning, DD1 was eating a clementine and picking the white thready bits off the segments. She asked for a story so I said "it was a dark and stormy night and the captain of the robbers said to Antonio "Antonio, tell us a tale" so Antonio began: "it was a dark and stormy night and the captain of the robbers - "not on the floor!" to DD1 about to throw white thready clementine bit on the floor - DD1 replied "on the table".

I had a helpful coincidence/sign today.

Had a bad night, feeling what was the point & what was I doing with my life, felt so down, & not much better in the morning.
Then DD got to some even-more-rarely dusted spot in the house and emerged with little feathers on her top. I picked them off (all attached in a slatternly dust chain) and dropped them - they wafted onto me & landed in the shape of a heart!!

We could interpret a million coincidences a day as messages from our loved ones. The thing that makes some of them stand out is strength of the gut feeling we get over something so random. Instinct is always worth listening to in my mind.
