Healing Through Messages From Heaven and Continuing Soul-to-Soul Connection

Angel Story

Hello beautiful souls! Michelle shares her heart-wrenching journey of loss, healing, and spiritual communication. Losing her first son just four days after his birth, Michelle grappled with immense grief and the burden of the difficult decisions she had to make. Yet, it was her son’s angelic messages from the Other Side that began to lighten her sorrow, guiding her towards a path of inner peace and presence. Michelle recounts the miraculous signs she’s received, from the sighting of yellow slug bugs that seemed to appear just when she needed them, to the breathtaking sunsets that painted the sky with hope, and the gentle visits from dragonflies, symbolizing the eternal connection with her son. Each sign has been a whisper from the heavens, an angelic nudge helping her to release the heaviness of loss and embrace the beauty of the moment. Through her story, we delve into the powerful spiritual bonds that transcend the physical realm, offering listeners a glimpse into the ways our loved ones continue to guide and support us from beyond, illuminating our lives with their eternal love and wisdom. This episode is a touching reminder of the angelic presence that surrounds us, gently nudging us towards healing and reminding us that we are never truly apart from those we love.


I’m hosting my first-ever in-person events at Oak Brook, Illinois! I can’t wait to see you there.

Michelle: Some of my friends just kept looking at me like this funny look, and I’m like, what’s going on? Well, after I finished, they told me that a dragonfly had landed on my head while I was telling my story. And I didn’t even know it. I never saw it. I thought they were joking. And, they’re like, no, we’re being serious.

Welcome back to the angels and Awakening podcast. I’m your host and author, Julie Jancius. Friends, today we’re here with michelle, who has some beautiful angel stories to share. Michelle, welcome to the show.

Michelle: Thank you for having me.

Julie Jancius: Yeah, thank you for being here. I’m going to have you take it away and share your first story.

Michelle: All right, thank you. So back in 2010, I went into labor early at 22 weeks and had my son Dalton, and I was actually in Illinois. I live in Indiana. So I was on a business trip and I, went into labor. So let me give you a little background first, because that leads into my second story. So when he was born, he lived for four days. And during that time, the doctors had told us come day three that there wasn’t much they could do. So it was up to us to decide to leave him on all the ventilation and all that, or if we wanted to take him off of life support and just let it be. And I really struggled with that because of my faith and believing in miracles and all that stuff. I really struggled. But me and my husband at the time sat down with the family and decided that the best thing to do, based on what the doctors told us, was to take him off and just let things be. So, that being said, the next morning he passed. We were driving home, which is a three hour drive, and my husband and I always used to play the slug leg game. So whenever we would see a slug bug, we tap each other on the shoulder and say, hey, there’s a yellow or red or whatever. Well, anyways, on the way home that day, that, three hour drive, there was probably 50 slug bugs. No joke. We’ve seen so many. And out of that, half of them were yellow. So yellow became my collar. And I don’t know why at the time. Now I do, because yellow represents hope. So I know why now, but at the time I didn’t. So anyways, yellow became our collar. We used that when we bought flowers for the funeral and all that stuff. So that being said, since then, throughout the years, anytime anything major has happened in our life, mine or my ex husbands now, but his life, it’s like we would always see yellow slug bugs and they would come in threes. And so it’s like going on vacation between here and wherever we’re going. Could be a three hour drive, could be a twelve hour drive. We would just see three. It’s no more than that. And that still happens. So I always represent the yellow slug bug with my son. So anyway, that became my sign for my kid is my yellow slug bug. So that’s basically my first story, is that I see those all the time. And it’s like, I just know that it’s him telling me, hey, things are going to be okay, mom. You know, everything’s fine.

Julie Jancius: I love it.

Michelle: So that’s basic. Yeah, that’s. So that’s my first one is the yellow slug bugs. And I still, to this day, I still see them. If I have a question, I’ll ask my question. And it’s like, if I see the yellow bug, I know, hey, my answer is yes. If I don’t see one, then the answer is no.

Julie Jancius: Yeah, that’s beautiful.

Michelle: Yeah. So another thing is dragonflies. And so after my son died, we would be out playing disc golf, or Frisbee golf, as some people call it. And just dragonflies would come around. They would land on our hand, they would land on my mom’s hand when she would be with us, but we see a lot of dragonflies. And so I was questioning that at first, but the story I’m about ready to tell just totally sealed the deal. And it’s like, now when I see dragonflies, I think of my son. So, let’s go forward. And I was telling you about my faith. And in 2015, my husband and I got divorced. And so I felt at that time that that was all I had left, tying me to my son. And I was still grieving. Had been almost five years at that time. 2016 rolled around, and my friend came to me early in the year, around March, and she’s like, hey. She goes, I’ve never lost a child, but I can see it in you that this is killing you inside. I mean, it’s hurting you. You need to let go. You need to let your grief go. You got more than just your grief. And I didn’t feel that, because I felt like all that I had was gone. I had my husband, my two dogs at the time, they were both gone. I had nothing. So I felt like all I had left was my grief. And I wanted to hold onto that. I got to thinking about it. I got to praying about it. And right before my son’s birthday in June, I decided, hey, you know what? I don’t. I don’t need this. It is hurting me. And so I decided to finally let go. And we planned it. I planned it all out. That on the weekend and the day of his birthday, which was June 15 in 2016, I decided I I was going to let go. So we had it all planned out. So I go to work that morning, and I’ve been praying and listening to my favorite radio station at the time, which was Caleb, and all kinds of christian songs came on. But this one particular song just resonated with me, and that was in the eye of the storm, and it just hit me, and I just started bawling, and I’m like, this is the eye of the storm, and I am going to make it through. I’m going to be okay. And so I prayed for. I, prayed that I would see a sign. And so I was thinking, yellow swipe button. That’s not what happened. So I go to work. I’m working, and I run. I m work for Frito lay. So I deliver chips. So I went to a couple stops. Still no sign. Still no sign. It was coming down to, like, my last stop of the day, and I was driving 55 miles an hour down the highway. And, out of the blue, the largest dragonfly I have ever seen larger than my hand. Landed right in the windshield right in front of me. And it went and turned its little head and looked at me and then it flew away. And I start ball and I’m like, that’s, my kid, that my sign. And I’m like, oh my gosh. So I get to my next stop and I call my friend. I’m like, you’re not going to believe this. So I was telling her about it and she, you know, was crying. And so, so that was my, my dragonfly. So the day goes on, we go to church. That night after church, we decide, hey, we’re going to go out to the cemetery, we’re going to let our lanterns off. And I wrote a letter to my son. And I had a lot of guilt. I felt like maybe there was something more as a mom I could have done for my kid. So I wrote a letter to him apologizing. I apologized, you know, that I had to take him off life support. And it was really, I mean, I, struggled really bad. So I wrote my letter, I taped it to my lantern. My friends and family were there, and they all had lanterns. And if you’ve ever seen lanterns go off, they go pretty slow. So my friends, and everybody let theirs off and it came to me. And of course, mine’s a yellow lantern because I like the color yellow. So I tape, I had my letter on there, and as soon as I let my lantern off, it’s like it went straight to heaven. I mean, it was gone. And it’s like it caught up to the other ones that were going really slow and it was gone. And immediately m as soon as that happened, you could hear all my friends and everybody saying, oh, my gosh, did you see the sky? Did you see that? The sky went from blue to pink, which is my other favorite color. And it went to pink immediately. And it’s like, So that being said, I really didn’t know if my letting go worked. Well, the next morning was father’s day. My son was my son. now my other son, Dalton, was with his dad. I was sitting outside having coffee, and I was typing on Facebook, wishing everybody a happy father’s day. And as I got ready to type my son, who passed Dalton, as I got ready to type his name and hit the letter d, a, dragonfly flew by me. And I’m like, so that happened. And then I have another one that was about a week later. My friends, who were part of my bible study group, couldn’t go to the lantern ceremony that we had. And we were sitting at the park, and we were all sitting at the picnic table talking, and I was telling my story about everything that had happened that day on Saturday. And as I was telling my story, some of my friends just kept looking at me like this funny look, and I’m like, what’s going on? Well, after I finished, they told me that a dragonfly had landed on my head while I was telling my story. And I didn’t even know it. I never saw it. I thought they were joking. And they’re like, no, we’re being serious. So a dragonfly had come up to me and landed on my head after, I was telling my story. So now that happens. And you had mentioned on one of your podcasts or one of our meetings one night about asking for things. And so my grandmother has also passed. And so when I’m with, when I think about her, lately I’ve been asking for red slug bugs, and I’ve gotten several since I’ve asked for my red slug bugs. So it’s like, I don’t know, I just, I really feel it when it comes to those things. It’s like, I totally feel it.

Oh, that’s amazing. That’s amazing. a couple of things. I don’t even think I’ve told this story on the podcast, but I want to share it here because it, just reminded me of it when you talked about the pink, beautiful sky. And if anybody who’s listening has ever been to the midwest or lived in the midwest, there are parts of the midwest where you can see just the most beautiful sunsets. It’s like being on a beach, but you’re not. And especially, here, west of Chicago, there’s certain roads that run north and south, and there’s these houses that kind of bump up to these roads. And from the back of these houses, you’re facing west looking out the window, and you can just see the most large, magnificent, beautiful sky. And when I was graduating college, I didn’t have a place to stay because my mom decided to move down to Florida with my sister. I think it was like two days after my sister graduated high school, and I had graduated college the month before. So I moved in with one of her friends for a couple of weeks, and when I was at her friend’s house, there was again that road that ran north and south, and then her window faced out west, and you could just see the most magnificent sunsets. I love the sky. I love being on the beach. I have so many memories of just being with my grandparents and seeing these beautiful sunsets, and it’s just something that is, so meaningful to me and just brings me so much joy. So, if you’ve listened to the podcast for a while, you know that we put money in on a house, it didn’t go through. really felt called to the house. But again, angels knew better, and we ended up redoing our house. And we weren’t planning on moving. But my, my husband found this house. I didn’t even realize because it’s on a hill and it’s not the one next to the street, but it’s a couple in. It still gets because it’s on this slant on this hill, we see the most magnificent sunsets ever that I’ve seen in my life. And I know what you mean about the sky turning different colors now because, it’s been so warm here in Chicagoland. I feel so awful for the places that are affected by global warming in a negative way. But it has been like a really, really long fall and a really long spring and a very, very, very mild winter here. Last night there was just this purple sky, and I’ve never seen the sky turn purple. But the way that the clouds were and the way that the light was bouncing off and, oh, my goodness, the entire sky was just purple. It was incredible. So just telling you that, because I think there are some of you, if you’re buying a new house and you love sunsets, ask the angels for that house where you get to see the best sunsets. Because I tell you, it’s like getting a show every single day, a free show when it comes to your stories, Michelle, I just love that so much. And I love that your son is with you. I started having tinnitus, which some people said, you know, it’s the angels, right? And they kind of turn up a frequency, and I just heard it like it’s in this ear. to my right, your son wants to talk about his brother. Now, your son, who passed was the oldest, is that right? And your son, who’s here is younger, so they didn’t get to meet here in the physical world. But your son wants you to know that he got to meet him, on the other side and has spent lifetimes with him. And I even feel like they’ve lived as twins in past lives, where getting to know your son, who’s here in this lifetime, he says, is very much like getting to know him, because they’re just so close, so similar.

Michelle: My son now was a twin, but we lost his twin.

Julie Jancius: Wow, really? Yeah.

Michelle: yeah.

Julie Jancius: Okay. So that’s that energy. Sometimes when that happens, you see two different souls on the other side. I don’t see two souls, I see the same soul.

Michelle: Yeah. Dalton was my first, and then I had two miscarriages, and then I got pregnant with my son now, and he was a twin, and then we lost his twin. We heard the heartbeat several times, and then I think it was around 18 to 20 weeks, we lost his twin, which wasn’t identical. It was a paternal twin. Sure. So, it’s that I feel in my heart it was a sister, though. I really do.

Julie Jancius: Yeah. It’s that personality, because I feel like he really just wants you to know him. And I think so many times you look around at siblings and we can look so different from one another, but our mannerisms can be the same in the way that we talk is the same, and the personality is a lot the same. And he goes, just tell my mom that her getting to know Dalton is her getting to know me, too.

Michelle: That’s awesome.

Julie Jancius: Yeah.

Michelle: Yeah. I feel. I’ve always felt like maybe Dalton kissed Malachi before he was born because he had this little birthmark right here in between his eyes. And I always thought. I always tell him, I’m like, you know, I think that’s from your brother. And I never had this little. I don’t know if you can see it, you probably can’t tell it, but I have this little mark on my cheek that almost looks like a heart, and I never had that before. I had Dalton, and I always held. The last day that Dalton was alive, I held him close and up here, and I often wondered whether or not he kissed me, too, you know, because I have that little mark that almost looks like a little heart on my cheek, so.

Julie Jancius: That’s so beautiful. Absolutely, he did. Absolutely, he did. The. The other thing that I feel so concretely coming through to you, Michelle, is just open your heart up to miracles, because there’s so much that he wants to bring through, and he opens up your head. And I keep hearing you say to yourself, it’s got to be hard. You know, it’s, you know, in order for it to come true, it’s got to be hard. It’s got to be a challenge. It’s got to be work. It’s got to be this. And he goes, tell my mom it can be easy. Tell my mom it can just come through like a waterfall. Tell my mom, there’s so much coming through to her, and he just doesn’t want you to limit what’s coming through. Just know that it’s for you. And he said, you’re so worthy, you’re so deserving of those blessings, those miracles, those opportunities, and so just open your heart to them.

Michelle: Well, yeah, I’ll do that.

Julie Jancius: Love it. Michelle, thank you so much for spending time with me here and. And for being an angel member. I so appreciate you.

Michelle: Well, I appreciate you greatly. I appreciate you. Let me come here.
