The angels often send us feathers as signs, or perhaps it is because feathers come from wings which we associate with angels. I do often get asked about the meaning colour with the feathers so I thought this was the perfect forum.
Our angels send us signs to let us know they are listening and working on our prayers and requests. Symbols like feathers are most important when they are meaningful to the person who receives them. The first question I ask a client when we talk about signs, is “What does the sign mean to you?” and “What were you doing or thinking about when you noticed the sign or feather?”. When analyzing anything, ask yourself first, “What does this mean to me?”
Symbology is only as important as it is to the person having it. Meaning, what it means to you is always the most important, not what another teacher tells you it should mean. I did a bit of research when I was first asked this question and found that most meanings went along with the traditional chakra colours along with some of the colour therapy teachings. It works, so why not use it. It is truly about your intentions and what you assign to them. However, here is some generalized meanings for you to begin to work with while you are learning to trust yourself and the signs:
Feather Colours and their Meanings:
White Feathers white is the most common and often considered the symbol for purity, which is very much aligned with the meaning of angels. White feathers can also be a sign from the angels that your loved ones in Heaven are well, and have successfully crossed over into the spirit realms. White is also a symbol of faith and protection, and when you find white feathers in peculiar locations the message is especially significant. This is often just to reassure you that your angels are around you, working with you, and answering your prayers.
In addition to white feathers, here is a quick look at some of the additional meaning the coloured feathers may have.
Pink Feathers Pink is considered by most to be the colour of love. Pink feathers are a reminder of the unconditional love that your angels have for you, and a reminder that all things are possible when you are tuned into the energy of love.
Red Feathers signify life force energy, physical vitality, stability, strength, passion, and courage. Trust that your base needs are being met.
Orange Feathers carry messages of creativity, listening to your inner voice, and staying positive to attract success. How do you feel?
Yellow Feathers are often a reminder to be cheerful and light-hearted, to be present, alert, and to stay focused on what you desire to magnetize these blessings into your life. Don’t get caught up in the drama of the world, just be present in the world and pay attention to details.
Green Feathers signify abundance and money, a fertile opportunity, as well as vibrant well-being, health, and love. Are you taking care of yourself?
Blue Feathers brings a calming and peaceful energy. Are you connected to communication, awareness, and are often a reminder to listen.
Gray feathers are a call to return to peace. Gray is also neutral, and can be a sign that the answer to your question is not yes/no or black/white. Time to go within and find your centre and tap into the void to help you to refocus.
Brown Feathers signify grounding, home life, and stability. There is an energy of respect, groundedness, and balance between the physical and spiritual. The importance of connected with the earth and the now.
Black Feathers are a reminder of the protection of your angels, and a signal that spiritual wisdom, and magic are accessible by you so go within. You need a break from the world. A personal retreat.
Feathers with purple on them carry messages of deep spirituality, transmutation, as well as the opening of psychic and spiritual sight. You are on the right spiritual path and continue on with your studies.
Tons of love, Sharon and the angels xoxox
