I cannot tell you how many times Cardinals have come up in my sessions with clients as a sign from a loved one in heaven. In the Christian faith, this crimson beauty is a symbol of Christ’s love for us. He loved us so that he shed his blood for mankind. In some Native American tribes, it is a sacred bird associated with love, harmonious relationships and courtship as well as a harbinger of love. Their red color is often associated with romantic love as well as love of any kind. In my readings they are often sent by spirit to their earthly relative as a sign of their everlasting love. So, they truly are Valentine’s sent from Heaven!
