Have you ever found a feather on your path, dreamed of a feather, or had a vision of a feather? The following poem came intuitively, after I spontaneously had a vision of a white feather the morning of September 4, 2010. (Spiritual symbology of the feather below).
Appearing out of nowhere
A white, soft feather gently
And gracefully floats
Through the air toward you.
Opening your hand,
Palm toward the Heavens,
Seems magnetically to direct
The feather to land, ever so gently,
In the palm of your hand.
You look up, and no bird is in sight,
Either near, or far.
Take a magnifying glass
Of nine times magnification,
And place the feather
In the proper alignment
With the glass lens
So that you can see the feather. . .
Magnified by nine.
Leave the feather magnified
For a few moments in time,
Then stand outside your home
And star gaze with awareness.
Go back inside and look at the
Grand Divine Design of the feather,
Magnified by nine. . .
Remember the majesty of the stars and . . .
“Be still and know that I am God!”
Symbol meaning of Feathers:
Symbol meaning of feathers deals with ascension and spiritual evolution to a higher plane. In dreams feathers mean travel or the ability to move more freely in life. White feathers in dreams indicate innocence or a fresh start in a spiritual sense.
Note: The above symbol meaning is applicable to my life at present. Briefly... my interpretation of the white feather vision as it is applicable to my life: Two days before I had the white feather vision, my life expanded, and I became freed up to create “…the ability to move more freely in life.” And my life opened up to creating “…a fresh start in a spiritual sense.”
In Christianity feathers represented virtues. In fact, an image of three feathers were made into signet rings - each feather symbolizing Charity, hope, and faith. These rings were worn as a symbol of a virtuous soul - they were also used as wax seals. The ring would be dipped in warm wax then pressed against documents to seal the closure. The recipient would know the documents came from a virtuous man by the indication of the three-feather symbol in the wax.
As a Celtic symbol meaning, the feather was worn by Druids in the form of ornate feathered robes. Celtic Druids donned these robes in ceremonies to invoke the sky gods and gain knowledge of the celestial realm. It was believed that the feathered cloak along with the presence of the sky gods would allow the Druid to transcend the earthly plane and enter the ethereal realm.
The Egyptians believed that feathers were symbolic of sky gods too. Ma'at, the Egyptian goddess of justice, would weigh the hearts of the newly dead in the underworld against the weight of a feather to determine the worthiness of his or her soul.
Feathers were worn by Native American Chiefs (Indians) to symbolize their communication with Spirit, and to express their celestial wisdom. Also in the Native American Indian culture, feathers represented the power of the thunder gods, along with the power of air and wind.
Native American Pueblo Indians would pay homage to the Feathered Sun which is a symbol of the cosmos and the center of existence. Another symbol meaning of feathers also revolves around prayer, and the Pueblo use feather sticks as they dance in prayer for rain during solstice rituals.
