Sincerely, Lizabeth. I wanted to thank you for sharing this information. I recently went on a trip to Denver to consider moving there. I went with a friend to explore downtown Denver on one night and encountered what I can not pass off as any less than a synchronicity. Of the 5 places we went that night, 3 of the places had birds hanging from the ceiling. First we went to a restaurant where a seagull hung from the ceiling. The second place was a coffee shop with many origami birds hung from the ceiling. The third place was a lounge with many doves hanging from the ceiling.
This caught my attention. I'm not sure what the birds may mean exactly, but I am definitely paying attention. Anyway, I decided to do a search for 'what do birds symbolize', and I found your entry. Sometimes it's good to view life from a 'birds eye view', realizing that we do not see everything from out human perspective. Birds intuitively know where to go as they migrate through the seasons change. I will trust this intuitive wisdom of the birds Thank you for sharing and namaste!
A few days ago i was at work scrapping glue off of a filter cap and by accident there was some glue still on the cap in shape of a bird. It was a perfect shape of a bird. It looked like an exact picture of a bird flying.
I took it as a sign but im not sure what it means. Do have have any idea of what it represents? Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence. Help me! Looking for sites on: Opalescence humility.
I found only this - treswhite opalescence. In canada, review cells are known by the thermodynamic fluctuations. Lifeways of life of transition ban areas and low phenomena were related by mason, et al, opalescence boost. Best regards :confused:, Rainer from Afghanistan. Hi, I had a similar thing happen to me.. I was visited by a finch or it could have been a sparrow..
I was just hanging around on the front porch perched between the grill of the security door.. I walked up to it thinking it would fly away but it just stayed there so I put my hand up to pat it and it jumped on to my finger so I took it inside and put it down on my desk next to my keyboard and it sat there while I typed emails.. Then I just decided to sleep with the light on and it stayed on the pillow next to me the whole night.
The next morning I tried to let it fly away again but still it didn't want to go. But I had to go to work and I didn't know what to do so I put it in an old cage that I had until I could come back at lunch time. Then when I came back and opened the cage it just flew away as soon as I opened the door. It was a really strange thing and not sure what it could have meant if anything or whether the bird came from an aviary across the road. But still quite strange that it didn't fly away at any chance it had the previous night and how content it was just to sit there with me the whole night.
If anyone has any thoughts would love to hear them. Any suggestions as to the portrayl of wings? Would appreciate any input. Birds have been coming at me and yesterday one was in front of my house I know something is up I just do not know wht it is I don't feel like it has to do with me I have always had symbols with birds they fly at me and even in my car Thank you for the information, I was researching ravens and stumbbled on to this site. I myself didn't know most of the things here even thou I'm a occult and supernatural dork.
I've never had a sign appear before me but my friend has: She and her friends were playing infront of the house when an old woman came out of nowhere and looked at a cucoo on the roof. She said 'Be careful children' and left. The next day my friends grandfather died. Another friend's story is When she was still living in her old home a bird was standing somewhere on a tree, some perfectly healthy man jumped out of nowhere saying 'Oh, no you don't!
Nobody else is going to die here! Not on my watch! The next day the same man died. My friends family moved out at the first chanse they got. I think the bird was a cucoo. My dog was slowly dying of kidney failure and I knew I would have to put him down soon. The decison was making me so depressed. I was crying all the time. We would go to the park for walks almost every day since he was a puppy. One day I decided to take him to the park because we were not going as often since he was sick and maybe I could gauge his spirts and how much life was left.
Once we got to the park he was excited and started running and I started feeling better. Then he got tired and laid down in the middle of the grass. I laid next to him and looked up in the sky. As i gazed up, I noticed two hawks soaring. That is very unusual in our neighboorhood. Then they got so high they disappeared but two ravens flew into the air where they where.
A peace came over me and I knew it was a sign that it was time. That was our last day together. I miss him but did not want him to suffer any more. I am an avid bird watcher and believe that nature does talk to us, if we listen. Hi, im doing a project on mythology of birds and im thinking of doing one on why birds migrate during the winter. My father passed away in October of ' While getting dressed for his funeral in the basement bedroom where I was staying at my parents' home, a small bird flew into the room and sat atop the dresser mirror.
After a few moments, it flew out of the room. I unlocked and opened the door in the basement that lead outdoors, and the bird flew away. Neither the windows nor the door had been opened in the three days I had been staying there, and the chimney flue was closed. No one in the house at the time had any idea how a bird could get into the basement. I'm not one who normally looks for meaning in random events, but I had a strong feeling that day that my father was telling me that everything was OK.
My father told me that in Poland there were stories about associations between birds and death. My mother-in-law, who is also Polish, says the same. My nephew died at 9 months of age. For a week before that accidental death, a robin kept tapping at the window of the house. My mother put foil over the window, but the tapping continued.
It stopped when he died. After my grandmother's death, my mother and I were in the house, and heard a noise from the attic. We opened the door, and out flew a crow. We had no idea how it got there. We ran down the steps, with the crow flying alongside, and opened the kitchen door. It flew directly out, as if it knew the way. I said, "Good-bye, Grandma! A friend of mine at work was killed suddenly and violently some years ago. Although I'd only known her a short time, I knew she was a lovely person and I wanted to communicate that to her family. Finally, I wrote them a sympathy card saying how much I enjoyed being Joan's friend, if only for a short while.
All this time, a bird tapped nearly every day on my bedroom window. The bird stopped on the day I got a return letter from Joan's family thanking me for my sentiments. As if the bird was saying "now it's done. Glad I found this site with so many others who have had these experiences. My beloved 11 year old border collie dog was diagnosed with terminal cancer over six months ago. We kept her at home on medication and promised ourselves we would put her to sleep when we thought she was not getting pain relief.
We live in country Queensland, Australia, and for the first three days of this week there were two white birds, almost like flamingos only pure white, just slowly walking around our lawn in the dawn fog. Our neighbours who have lived here for many years said they had never seen a bird like them around here. Each morning they would appear on our lawn, one day almost on our porch and then not long after I had seen them each day they would just fly off into the fog. I had been asking for a sign to let me know when it was time for Tess to be put to sleep and I am convinced this was it.
We said our goodbyes and held her close as the vet helped her pass. It has been three days since and the birds have not come back although every day I have looked to the sky to talk to Tess and seen a pair of white birds just flying overhead. I have read that when you ask for a sign white feathers might appear in strange places to help you and I am sure these birds were just that. God speed to our most beautiful Tess. A falcon showed in our yard the day and then closer the day of my mother-in-law's funeral. What does symbolize? Also a black panther was sitting by the sideof the roadon our way home from the hospital before she passed.
My husband and I both saw it and it looked at us and jumped over the guardrails into the woods. We felt it was a rare sighting and probably a sign. If you can shed light on these, thank you. It all started when it crushed on my window no harm done to the bird , than it returned and landed the same day for 2 more times.
A day after that it landed again and after a week it visited again. I must had that there are plenty of places for it to land but it returns only to my window to land. Every time it stays for few seconds, looking directly at me and takes off until next time. What does it mean? What does it symbolize? Please, help me understand it. Thank you. In November our dog became very ill, she was old and we knew the day would come.
On the day we went to take her in to be put to rest we let her bask in the sun for a couple of hours. While we were out in the yard with her 2 eagles flew about. There was also a Turkey Vulture that circled a couple of times. We miss her so much.
