“If you think it’s a sign…IT IS!”

Here are some ideas about what it means when we encounter feathers, and what we can do when feathers float into our awareness.
Get Grateful. Feathers are a reminder to count our blessings and be thankful for the good stuff going on in our lives.
Get Listening. Feathers are viewed as a communication tool to and from the gods by many cultures. So, their appearance is a reminder to listen to the bigger voice – as in a higher power.
Get Love. Feathers often show up when there is someone or something that wants to reach out to us. Sometimes this might be a loved one who has passed into non-physical. A feather is a reminder you are loved and thought of by someone who may not be here physically but is definitely with you energetically.
Get High. No, not like that! Feathers are a symbol of levity. When seen, they remind us to ease up on all the seriousness. Take a breath, relax, enjoy.
Very often, finding feathers on our path is a sign that we are getting active communication. This communication can be from the divine. This makes sense because ancient Indigenous / Native wisdom recognizes birds as messengers from the great spiritual realms. Therefore, feathers are like a statement that says: “You’ve got mail!” from the divine.
However you choose to interpret feathers on your path, the common consensus is that these fluffy features are a good omen, a sign of home, a message from the divine or loved ones who have passed.
