I found this article from  the FB Page called

When a Feather Falls on Your Path...
Have you wondered about what it might mean when you find a feather? Feathers are ways that Spirit (of different forms) sends us signs.
For a start, feathers (and other items such as coins, and creatures such as birds, butterflies) and dragonflies), can be signs from the angels, guides, or loved ones in that they are near - that they hear you, guide you and are supporting you. It can be an acknowledgement of you or your thoughts or it is their way of saying hello.
Finding a feather is often a magical moment. I have had many beautiful feather experiences and have watched one fall down from the sky onto my daughter's lap while we had a picnic in our backyard! In my children are often sign-bearers, delivering me feathers from their playtime travels.
Feathers represent flight and freedom, soaring above, looking from a higher perspective, and moving beyond boundaries and limitations. Different colours and colour combinations can also add extra meaning. (see further below about various colour meanings).

Interpreting the Meaning of the Feather Sign
Whenever you observe a sign, take note of what you were thinking just before it happened, or what is going on in your life at that moment. What could the sign be telling you? Don't stress yourself about finding a meaning. Even if you do not understand the meaning of the sign at the time, it could become clearer later, or you may be absorbing it in at a sub-conscious level. Just trust that it is a sign and let go of any doubts. Enjoy the way that Spirit works, and embrace the fact you are intermingling with it and paying attention.

Asking for Feather (& other) Signs
You can ask for feather (or other) signs to come to you. And you can be specific. I once asked for confirmation that I had a male guide watching over me (which is what I was feeling and just wanted the magical validation). I asked that if it were true I be shown in the form of a blue feather. I picked blue because it was more rare and unusual, and I saw it as an obviously male colour. Exactly one week later I went to work and as I approached some steps outside there were bright blue feathers everywhere! They were fake ones but it didn't matter. It was another of those magical moments.
It is just a matter of believing, letting go, and staying aware. Signs often remind us to be at peace and relax into the nature and flow of life. The meanings can at times be profound, and at other times quite simple. The best advice when signs happen is to not put any pressure on yourself to understand it. Take it as an opportunity to connect, take notice of and thank the ever-present Spirit. If your sign is an item such as a feather, you can keep it in a special place whether that be by your bedside, on your dresser, or added to your sacred space / spiritual altar. Or you can gently release it back to nature or where you found it.

How do you know for sure your feather
 is a sign?
It is especially a sign if it comes in a magical way or you find it in an odd place. Feather signs often appear on your path in front of you, or at your doorstep. Once a feather appeared in my bag, and on my bedroom floor.

This article by Natalia Kuna was published in the magazine "Alive, So Make it Count!"
What Different Feather Colours Mean
The Native American people had a great spiritual understanding about feathers, their colours and their meaning. They would take the utmost care of any feathers that came their way as they saw it as a sacred gift, or a powerful talisman in battle.
When considering feather colours, firstly I always recommend seeking the answer within yourself first. Do you have any particular personal association with the colour? What does the colour make you think of or feel? What are the universal meanings of that colour to your knowledge? Does the feather you found act as an answer to a question or some kind of acknowledgement. Always go with your gut and the first impressions you get, and trust. I recommend noting it down and keeping a journal of signs and synchronicities. You might see more in connection to this sign, so stay alert and enjoy the mystery of the process.

Below is a brief rundown of the possible colour meanings of feathers (though trust your own heart and use this as a general guide - you can experiment with this!):

WHITE - purification, spirituality, hope, trust, faith, protection, peace, Heaven, angels, and also act as blessings and wisdom connected with moon.
RED - the root chakra (money, possessions, security, career), physical vitality/energy/life force/action, good fortune, passion, emotions, courage.
BLUE - throat chakra (communication, acceptance, speaking your truth) peace, inspiration, mental abilities/knowledge, connection with spirits, spiritual protection and psychic awareness.
YELLOW - solar plexus chakra (gut intuition, happiness), blessings and wisdom connected with powerful sun energy, intelligence, playfulness, joy, cheerfulness, mental alertness, vision.
GREEN - (heart chakra - love, emotions, relationships, forgiveness), health, healing, nature, environment, nature spirits, plant spirits, animal spirits, growth, fertility, harmony, unity, money, prosperity, success.
ORANGE (sacral chakra - sex/physical relationships, love, appetitite, attraction), energy, change, optimism, and ambition, success, new ideas, will power, creativity, physical love, new ideas, will power, independence.
PINK - unconditional love, romance, feelings, friendship, caring, compassion, harmony, service, empathy, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, honour, inspiration.
GREY - peace and neutrality (as it is in the middle of black and white), authenticness, flexibility.
PURPLE - (crown chakra - universal consiousness, spiritual connection), heightened spiritual growth and experiences, higher thought.
BROWN - earth, stability, grounding, endurance, home, friendship, respect.
BLACK - protection, warning, repelling or warning of negative energy, death (as in a closed chapter), mystical wisdom - a sign that you are undergoing a spiritual initiation, growth or increased wisdom. When the feathers are irridescent, oir represents high mystical insight (especially if there is a shiny irridescence).


Black and white mixed feathers can represent protection, or the sense of union.
Black mixed with purple represents a very deep spirituality. i would take it as a feeply mystical sign.
Black, white, and blue mixed feathers denote change on the horizon.
Brown and black striped pattern (like a pheasant/s feather) - balance between the physical and the spiritual.
Brown and white - happiness, and you will go under the radar from psychic or other harm.
Feathers with red and green in them or together would denote that you are being assisted financially. I would take it as a very lucky sign.
Grey and white symbolise hope.

The Guardian Angel in a famous and much-loved painting by Lindberg 
The Guardian Angel in a famous and much-loved painting by Lindberg 

In Jewish and Christian belief, a Guardian Angel is commonly thought of as a personal Angel, one assigned by God to watch and protect one's life, to prevent accidents, to steer one towards the good and away from evil. In the Catholic Church, October 2nd is the Feast of the Guardian Angels.
The idea of a Guardian Angel is a very old one, mentioned by the ancient Greeks and according to some, hearkening all the way back to the ancient religion of Zoroastrianism. In the Tanakh or Jewish Bible (known to Christians as the Old Testament) the Books of Job and Daniel both present beliefs based on the idea of a personal Guardian Angel. In the Christian New Testament the books of Matthew and Acts also allude to the belief in a Guardian Angel. Throughout the ages stories have been told of individuals who reported interaction with their Guardian Angels. In some cases people believe that their Guardian Angel steers them away from dangerous or life-threatening situations and in others they have perceived to feel comfort, hope, or renewed strength during times of sorrow and trouble. Many people believe that one's Guardian Angel will appear near the time of death; this idea of a messenger who guides one during death is quite ancient.
Although Angels are generally thought of as not having a gender, it is common practice in the Americas and Europe to depict Guardian Angels as women who watch over their charges with the tender care of loving young mothers. Often they will be shown with white feathered wings and in white or glowing robes. Hoodoo root doctors, as well as practitioners working within Spiritualist or New Thought traditions, often keep a statue of the Guardian Angel on any altar where work is being performed for the blessing, cleansing, healing or protection of clients.

The Meaning of Feathers
written by Trudie Ann Moore.
In my healing work I touch two realms – the earth, with my shamanic Soul Surgery healing, and the sky with  angelic toning. Feathers bridge both these worlds.
I don’t know of anyone who is not delighted when they either find, or are given a feather.
Over many generations, sayings connected to feathers have developed like: “Birds of a feather flock together”, “To feather your nest”, “You could have knocked me over with a feather”, “Fine feathered friends”, “To ruffle someone’s feathers”, “To be tarred and feathered”, “To smooth someone’s feathers”, “To shake a tail feather”, “It’s as light as a feather”, “A feather in your cap”.
The colours of feathers  have a meaning, white feathers for peace and calling a truce, peacock feathers for pride, red feathers for war and strength.
On the direction of the angels I began to collect feathers and also to buy some dyed feathers. My partner was rather puzzled by this, and asked  “why are we hunting feathers?” I  said that one particular angel was most insistent that this be done. Because of this  I find feathers in front of my feet, or people are giving them to me. It is a joyous, magical mystery tour and I am having fun.
Out of all the traces of the animals, feathers are the easiest to find. It takes a special moment, a sacred space, to see the beauty of a feather.
Birds leave their feathers as messages to us, on the grass when we are walking the dog, next to our car, on the front door mat, and usually we can’t miss seeing them.  Feathers give you gifts to tell you who you are and what you are to do. Each time you pick up a feather it is a reminder that you are on the right path and that your life is sacred again.
The phrase “A little bird told me” came from a time when birds were watched to divine the future. Birds in the home are believed to increase the memory and mental powers of those residing there.  A grey feather attached to a package sends good fortune to your friend, while a blue one ensures health, and green increases money.
Some cultures believe if you make a little wreath of feathers and place it beneath a sick person’s pillow, it will speed their recovery.
In olden times, feathers were placed in doorways with the intent of halting wandering children from passing through, and were also burned beneath the bed during a difficult childbirth to ease the process.
Feathers symbolise peace, upliftment, joy and lightness. Use them as a portal to the higher realm of light.
They are a passport to the angelic realms where your spirit can take flight. 


Feathers Appear When Angels Are Near. 

Angels leave feathers as signs of their love. 
'When you find a feather in your path, 
know that your Angels are with you. 


  • RED:       Physical vitality, courage, good fortune and life force.
  • BLUE: Enhance our mental abilities, peace, and protection and psychic awareness
  • YELLOW:  cheerfulness, mental alertness, prosperity, and blessings from the sun.
  • GREEN:    Symbolize money, prosperity, growth health and fertility.
  • ORANGE:  Bring attraction, energy and success
  • PINK:       Unconditional love and inspiration
  • GRAY:      peace and neutrality
  • BROWN:   feathers give stability and respect. They  represent the home and grounding.
  • BROWN Striped with black (like the tail feathers of a pheasant): gives balance between the physical & spiritual life.
  • BROWN with white:  brings happiness and give a kind of protection that enables you to go un-noticed amidst those who would harm you.
  • BLACK: Give the mystical wisdom that comes with true  spiritual initiation
  • BLACK with a shine or irradescence: gives mystical insight
  • BLACK & white mixed feathers:  give union and protection
  • BLACK or grey feathers banded or mixed with white: give home, balance, and harmony
  • BLACK mixed with purple: means deep spirituality
  • BLACK white & blue mixed feathers: bring change. 
Feathers speak to us of flight, of freedom, of going beyond boundaries, of getting “above it all,” or of the need to let go and travel light. In many cultures, they carried prayers to heavenly gods and bestowed extraordinary powers in battle.
Above all, feathers come to us as gifts. They come from the sky, from the sea, from trees and deep grasses, even appearing within enclosed spaces never inhabited by winged creatures. They come to us unexpectedly, but not without purpose. Their messages may be startling, soothing or sudden, but they are always an opportunity for seeing – for finding answers to questions we may not even have known we were asking.
What, then, is a feather? It is a part of a bird’s body, and it is a part of us. It exists for itself, to serve its primary purpose in the cosmos, and it exists in alliance with every other aspect of the cosmos. Just as we bring life-inspiring messages for others while simply fulfilling our own lives, so do feathers bring their messages to us. They remind us that we walk in a world overflowing with meaning.
I asked the angels about feathers in their sky realm, and they explained to me that  their wings take on the appearance of bird-like feathers, yet are composed of filaments of light which have the ability to change frequency density as they move through the various dimensions and are utilised for many tasks. They hold, direct, and deflect a multitude of emanations and are also used to create portals or doorways into other dimensions.
They can expand their feathered wings  into whole grid-works of light which are the foundation of inter-galactic energy platforms which are used by the Elohim to hold new sub-atomic life forms pulsed into being by the Creator. Their wings can be more subtle and lighter than air and stronger than steel. They are a living, breathing, intelligent organism that are wondrous to behold in God’s creation.
We might not have feathers from angel wings falling out of the sky, but next time you are out and about, and you are seeking a message, confirmation you are on the right path, or direction, as the birds to send you a feather, and I am sure one will cross your path.
In shamanic healing work, feathers are used to meditate with, journey with, and to comb the aura.
We will begin by aligning our energies with our feather.
  • Rest the feather on your lap
  • Begin slow rhythmic breathing. Keep your breath slow inhaling for a count of four and exhaling for a count of four. Feel yourself relaxing more deeply with each breath.
  • Bring to your mind the image of the bird. Mentally review all of its qualities and characteristics.
  • Now visualise the bird in flight, free and strong within your mind. As you observe its flight see it radiating the qualities you have come to associate with it.
  • Now pick up your feather and hold it by its stem in both hands several inches in front of your mouth. Keep your eyes closed and imagine its wing movement while in flight. As you focus on this, allow your breathing to follow that same rhythm. As the wings move down you inhale, as they move up you exhale. This may seem strange but birds breathe the opposite of humans.
  • With each breath out, exhale on the feather. Envision this as a means of both honouring the power of flight and also of uniting your life breath with their life breath of your bird totem. Continue this breathing for a minute of two. Visualise this as a breathing of new life into the feather and the archetype forces behind it.
  • As you do this you should begin to feel a slight vibration in the stem of the feather. It may be a tingling, a sense of increased pressure, a warmth or some such feeling. This feeling will encompass both hands, as the energy of the feather comes to life and affects the air around it..
  • As you hold the feather, try to imagine the energy surrounding the feather moving up your arms and into your body. You may feel it, see it, sense it, or simply imagine it. Remember all energy follows thought, and birds rule the realm of thought. Take a few moments and visualize the energy of the bird awakening in you.
I hope your meditations take flight with the wonderful world of feathers.


Birds & Feathers

Feathers from any bird are important. Birds are from The Upper World and any part of them does not belong to the person who holds it.  Feathers are very important to our people and are used in ceremonies, dancing, and medicine. If you happen to find a feather or a dead bird or any part of one, you must decide if you are going to walk on by or collect it. Before collecting it, you should leave a gift of tobacco thanking Grandfather, as well as the bird, assuring Grandfather that the item will be honored while in your possession. Once the item is collected then the care of it becomes important.
The feathers we have may be with a person for their entire life or they can be passed on when the time is right. While any part of a bird is in our possession we must be careful to act honorably. (Which each person should do anyway) It is said if you act in a way which is not honorable, the bird takes this information to Grandfather and there could be negative consequences.  With gifts, to give something away which was given to you by someone is an act which is not honorable. The exception to this would be that with feathers there may come a time that you "feel the need to pass it on." When this occurs and the feather is 'passed on' the action is not one of dishonor. This is because the feather never really was ours to begin with but, belongs to the bird and Grandfather.
NOTE: The three worlds are 1-The Lower World- where animals live underground or in the water. 2- This World- Where the four footed animals, insects and man lives. 3- The Upper World- Where the birds live.

There are special ways that a person stores a feather, gives a feather, or disposes of worn out feathers. It is said that a warrior will die when a feather of a war bird drops on the ground (dirt). Remember, a war bird is a bird of prey, i.e. falcon, hawk, eagle, etc., so special care is taken that this does not happen while it is in your care. The storing of feathers is as diverse as there are birds. The way we were taught was that each one is placed in red cloth with some sage, cedar and tobacco. The bundles of red cloth are then placed in a cedar box, if you have one. You can store them in a shoe box and place then in a closet. We add moth balls to the container that the feathers go into. This kills the mites that would destroy them.
Owl feathers should not be stored in the house you live in unless you have no other option.  They should be in another building such as a shed or 'outhouse'. If you must store them in a house put them in a shoe box in a closet, away from the day birds' feathers. An owl is a 'night bird' ie., a warrior bird that hunts and flies primarily at night. There is nothing negative about the bird or its feathers. There are many Native Americans who believe that an owl is a 'ghost' but this could not be more untrue. This belief came from the Priest who arrived here with the Europeans and were witch hunters. They believed that anything that moved at night was either a ghost or had something to do with the practice of witchcraft. This is why our people were referred to as 'heathens' for we sang and danced at night around a fire. It made it look even worse for we did this at every full moon. This idea has permeated our culture to the point that one could never convince someone of the opposite.
In today's world birds of prey are given to either female or males and are worn on their dance regalia. In the old days only a male was allowed to wear one of these feathers. There were no big pow-wows for the purpose of entertainment of people. The dances were done as 'praise to Grandfather. I am not going to say that a female cannot wear an eagle feather on her dance regalia. This is up to each individual to decide, with Grandfather, if they feel they are honoring the bird with this type of action. We do not feel that women sould wear the birds of prey feathers, this is our personal belief. The decision is left up to each nation one belongs to. If you need any further information about feathers as gifts to women look at the gifts lesson.
Dosposing of feathers was done by someone in the tribe appointed to do this. One should never burry feathers. This mixes The Lower World and The Upper World and is never done.
Another aspect of feathers is their meaning. Some birds were primarily used by warriors and the meaning was for them. Each war bird represents a warrior's level he has obtained through deeds, age, and medicine. There are a few women warriors and women medicine people who can wear the feathers from the birds of prey. Usually though, women do not wear feathers in their hair, as this denotes some level of warrior which most women have not attained. When given a bird of prey feather she can use it for saging. This is done now-a-days, but it was not done by our ancestors. If the woman is instructed as to how to wear the feather on the ear then that would be an honorable way she could use it.
The following explains some of the meanings of feathers from different birds:
CARDINAL (red) - Stands for the East and is referred to as "The Daughter of the Sun."
MACAW (blue/yellow) - Stands for the North and is called "The Sun Bird." It was traded from far to the south where the Sun shines most of the time.
MACAW (blue/red) - This was also considered to be one of the "birds of the sun."  It is  referred to as the " bird of fire" because of the red on the feather. It is considered a very sacred bird and only a high medicine or warrior person would use it.
RAVEN (black) - Stands for the West and stands for the second level warrior. Just because it is the 'bird of the west' and is black does not mean it represents death. The west is black "for it is where Grandmother Sun goes down." The feathers are only used by the raven warriors or to be placed under a new fire by the medicine person.  The Tlingit/Hadia (NW Coast of USA and Alaska) say this bird created man so it is always put at the top of a 'totem pole.'
SNOW EGRET (white) - Stands for the South and Peace. The mating plumes are worn by the Great Sun. They stand up in the front of the turban wrapped around his head. Its wing and tail feathers are used by the men at Green Corn for the Pole Dance. Each women at Green Corn is given egret feathers which are "under plume" for the Feather Dance and for their participation in the Green Corn medicine.
DOVE (grey morning dove) - Stands for Peace and the Dove Clan
SANDHILL CRANE (sand) - A war bird which stands for a warrior of high rank; the feathers are treated the same as a hawks.
BUZZARD (black/grey) - The Medicine Bird of all the birds, for "he can eat dead things and live."
OWL (any type) - This is the messenger/ warrior bird of the night. Its counter part is the Hawk the "day messenger bird." The Horned Owl and Barred Owl are very large owls. The screech owl, with its reddish eyes, is a small owl.
TURKEY (wild/brown) - considered an important and wise bird. The tail feathers are used to make a fan for honor. They are depicted on shell engravings from the Mississippian Mound Period. The body feathers are sewn on a mesh net to make a cape for the high-ranking men of the culture including the Great Sun. The white stripped wing feathers are used on arrows for the fletching.
BLUE JAY - The feathers are not kept from this bird, for it is considered a trickster. The Blue Jay 'calls' a warning when snakes are around, but he does this calling so much you really can't tell if he is just hollering or warning you. So you do not know if his "screams" are  truthfull or not.
BLUE HERON (blue/grey) - A war bird which stands for a warrior of high rank. The feathers are treated the same as a hawk.
CROW- Crow tail feathers are given to boys that have just gone through manhood. The feather indicates the he "wants to be a warrior."
RED SHOULDER HAWK - The wing feathers of the Red Shoulder Hawk are worn by a warrior who has reached level three of being a warrior. The Tail feathers are worn by a warrior who has obtained a position above that of the third level.
PILEATED WOODPECKER (black/white) -This bird was highly respected by our ancestors. It was engraved in shell stone and other mediums. It is considered a warrior bird for "his head is red".
BALD EAGLE -  The feathers from this bird are used by warriors who can no longer fight, are disabled or are elders (over 50).
PEREGRINE FALCON - The tail feathers are worn only by medicine warriors. This bird's design is one of the most used designs of our ancestors and has been drawn on shells, stone,copper and wooden items. If you look closely at the bird's head you will see it is the only bird with a "forked eye". This symbol is used quite often in pre-Columbian art. Some of the warriors paint a forked eye on themselves before dancing. This signifies a very high ranking warrior. The design was also used on the sacred mythical animal "Uktena." What has been mistakenly said to be 'eagle dancers' by archaeologist is now corrected to be 'falcon dancers.' This bird is probably where the "Thunder Bird" got its origin. It is the only bird which dives over 100 miles per hour and kills it prey with such a deadly force it does this in one 'strike.'
GOLDEN EAGLE - The feathers from this bird are used by medicine warriors who have obtained top level of medicine or is a medicine elder (over 50 years).
OSPREY (black/white) -  This is a bird of prey and is considered to be a high ranked warrior.
HUMMINGBIRD - This is a very sacred bird. "She brought the tobacco back to man." The 'hummer' is one of the birds 'drawn out' on the Nazca plain so the complete bird can only be seen in its entirety from up in the air.
HOUSE WREN - This bird is welcomed into any home of the SE Indians. It is supposed to be 'good luck' to have one living in the house.
ANHINGA (Snake bird) - The feathers of this bird are used by medicine people and are very sacred. It is said: "He hunts in the Lower World." -underwater
QUAIL - One of the stomps of the Cherokee is named after this bird.
PRAIRIE CHICKEN - This bird is 'mimic' by the plains Indian dancers with their bussels and their dance movements.
PARROT -  This is the extinct South Carolina Parrot. It was held in high esteem and hunted to extinction by the English for its feathers. There is an effigy pipe make to depict this bird.
KINGFISHER - In an old story it was said he should have been a warrior but was not. He obtained a long bill and gigs for fish.
PARTRIDGE - In an old story this bird stole his 'whistle' from the turtle.
ROBIN - This bird is a good indicator of a change in the climate. It let our ancestors know of the coming of spring and winter. Its migrations are based on very precise measures of the climate. There are many other birds whose migration marked the passing of the seasons for our ancestors.
There are many birds that are not mentioned. If you have any questions about a specific bird, please contact us.

" Magic is the art of bringing about wanted change. "
In natural magic feathers are used in spells and ceremonies to promote change. They are used as catalysts to help focus concentration while carrying out spells and wishes.
The medicine bag, also called power pouch or sachet, often includes special feathers which have meaning to the wearer and help attracting good luck as well as driving away bad things.
Feathers are magically ruled by the element of air. This makes them good communication helpers. But each feather also can hold other special powers; depending on the bird it came from, its color and place of discovery and other factors.
The knowledge what kind of feather is best used for what kind of indent can only be found out for oneself by trial and error. A pigeon feather is not as helpful for creating a defense strategy than a feather taken from a bird of prey.
The general rule for future feather magicians is always to use self found feathers rather than bought ones. A shop cannot substitute a walk in nature, nor the joy when the wanted feather is finally found.

Instructions how to make your own medicine can be found at Bearded Wolf´s great site:
Feathers used for magical undertakings are mainly determined by the energy which is brought into the feather by the magician him/herself through concentration and thought. Beside from the energy the magician brings into the object, feathers hold certain natural abilities.
Peacock Feathers were thought to be very unlucky, because they resemble an eye. The eye shape represented the evil eye which people were afraid of. Today the beauty and natural strength of the peacock feathers are again recognized. They are specially valued for their multicolored eyes.
Blue Jay feathers are valued as bringer of light and joy and are said to have the ability to brighten up even the darkest places.
The Crow is one of the animals humans have always been afraid of. A crow at the window is said to represent the soul of a dead person. Crow feathers are used for mourning and letting go of unwanted feelings or situations.

Basically all feathers can be used for any spell, they can either attract or repel energy.

for closer contact with spiritual beings (angels and spirits ).

loud noises and large groups of  people.
Your crown chakra is openin and you are becoming more sensitive -
this sensitivity  is necessary to pick up  messsages and clear  uidance from the spirit world.

Ultimately, you are supposed to use this knowledge for the  benefit of others.  Even if you are already working  in a spiritual-based career, more is expected of you. . For example , if you are a therapist, you will be able to  ta ke your work to a higher level becaus you will chanel "healing"  from sources more powerful than you.


 Red signifies passion- not the sort of passion associated with lovers,  but a passion of the soul - finding your true voice and gift  ... Pay attention because your Angel says that your gift is unfolding .., don't look for dramatic fireworks . Most gifts appear without fuss  as they unfold. For example, your intuition is improving,  your healing abilities developing.


If you asked for healing for yourself or  or for a loved one,  take the unusual appearance of green feather as a powerful sign that Archangel Raphael  is performing his healing.


Your body and mind is tired  from holding on to the past. Release old wounds , forgive and move forward . In return for forgiveness,  you acquire peace of mind and a  brighter future...


Your ANgel wants you to address your feelings -to speak your mind and aasist others to  listen to you.
This may be in general or it will relate to a specific issue or person  at the time of discovering the purple feather

Meaning of Feathers - American Bald Eagle 

Meaning of Feathers

The Meaning of Feathers plays an important role in the belief system of Native American Indians. Their beliefs are based on Animism which embodies the spiritual idea that all natural things within the universe, including birds, have souls or spirits.  Animists believe that souls or spirits exist, not only in humans, but also in birds, their feathers and in animals, plants, rocks and natural phenomena. The doctrine of animism is that everything is alive, and possesses an inherent virtue, power and wisdom.
The Meaning of FeathersThe generalised meaning of feathers signified honor & connected the owner with the Creator and the bird the feathers came from. Native Indian warriors were awarded a feather when they took coup or were particularly brave in battle. When a feather falls to earth, the Native Americans believe it carries all of the energy of its former attachment on a bird to a living being. Feathers are perceived as gifts from the sky, the sea and the trees. Feathers arrive unexpectedly, but not without purpose.
