  2. I had a dream about flying away on a bird and that it could talk to me and then later on in my dream I came back to my parents and they had financial problems and so I gave them money.while flying I saw some people coloring swan eggs with blue paint and some baby swans had blue designs painted on them too.

    • I need help with this one I’m sure. It’s terribly heartbreaking and hurts my heart as I write. We have many domestic birds living with us . On Mother’s day, my precious baby conure bird she is 9 flew away because it was so windy. My husband and I tried to get her from different trees she was flying on without success. She got spooked out and fly so high into the air and off into the sunset then realized she was turning to come back then she went downwards. We have been searching the streets day and night calling her name putting up tons of flyers she is on the internet as lost. We spent every hour together so we are very bonded. I am a mess crying daily. She is my healing bird too and would lay in areas of pain in my body. So a couple nights ago I had a short dream about her that my brother who lives in another state found her at Rib Crib restaurant. He brought her back to me and she was right by my side. So the next day we went Rib Crib to post a flier for them and walked the area and did not find her. Then today we got a message that was left for us saying she had seen our bird and to call her back but left no number. So I’m in great pain and agony not knowing why God is doing this to me. We have prayed and prayed and prayed. We are exhausted. I know in my spirit she is out there still alive this is driving us crazy and I am so devistated it’s like loosing a 9 year old daughter. If you
      Have any advice for me on what to do that would be appreciated. Thank you so much. God Bless.
