Earning Your Wings
I had a humorous moment with a father who passed away and was trying to communicate with his son. He wasn't a big believer in people like me and what I do for a living, so it was difficult at first for him to get information through to me. But soon I was picking up his energy, and I really liked his personality -- funny, intelligent and yet humble. He said he was shocked at the beauty of the other side. He always believed in a heaven, but never really spent a lot of time thinking about it. Then he showed me wing pins. Remember when you were a kid and flew for the first time, the stewardess would give you a pin with wings and say, "Now you've earned your wings?" That's what he showed me. At first, I thought it was a special memory he shared with his son, but that wasn't it. Then I thought maybe he was trying to show me that birds, the eagle in particular, is a special sign he shows his son. But no, that wasn't it. He just kept showing me that pin, and then I got it! It wasn't a symbol but a literal picture he was showing me. He was telling his son that he'd made it to heaven, had "earned his wings!"
