Feathers and birds began noticing me and I them, around the time of losing loved family members. Each time one passed, I found a feather, and was compelled to pick it up. I started reading about the meaning behind this and became interested in recognizing spirit animals and the wisdom behind visits.
It has been amazing how accurate, timely and needed these messages have been over the years...
This feather series is in response to that. The importance of paying attention and being open to guidance and direction wherever it may come. The oneness of what we think we know and all that we don’t know. The eternal connection between life and death.
The Cardinal- How many times have I been visited? So many, each time it makes me smile. They are said to be angels nearby, loved ones near, a message of love and encouragement. I see them all four seasons and I’m lucky to have them nesting out my front window.
The Blue Jay- Less frequent a visitor but much more demanding. The first time I took notice the squawking was so loud it distrurbed my peace and quiet sitting out on the porch. I tried to ignore but it wouldn’t hear of it. It made me look upi the meaning. One that particularily applied was “ It is letting you know you are doing an excellent job following your passions and dreams...their boldness teaches us to be brave, stand up to others and be ourselves.”
Interestingly these were what I was trying to work through in the quiet...
The Crow- Each year there seems to be one day where a mass of crows descend upon our front lawn. It’s impossible not to feel their visit. I welcome the intrusion even though their energy is sometimes overwhelming and many think it a bad omen. Crows are intelligent birds and bring a message of transformation and change, a reminder to trust your intuition and seek higher perspective.
