Hello my magical friend,
Many moons ago (25 years or so) I sat in council (in a teepee) one day a week for a year with a North American Indian Grandmother. She shared with me their ways. There were no written notes, class plans or books to read, the wisdom was organically experienced through all five senses via stories, communing with nature and ancient ceremony and ritual.
I was shown how to massage the earth with my barefoot and by dancing on the ground. This would help heal the hurt we had inflicted on our earth’s meridians. I learnt how drumming was a healing tonic for the earth’s song vibration. Sound is a potent medicine. Experienced sweat lodges, talking sticks, shape shifting and sacred smoke rituals. We crafted beautiful medicine pouches filled with healing crystals to wear around our neck. She showed me how to look up at the sky and read the messages. Observe the direction the birds flew. The direction of the wind. The type of bird. It all had meaning. Especially the feathers which had gracefully floated to the earth’s skin.
So it’s not surprising that when I see a feather on my path. I stop. Give thanks to the bird, and pick it up. A divine message from the unseen world. The universe, great spirit, mother nature, angels, god, guides or whatever we chose to name the amazing energy that is around us always.
One of the easiest ways to understand messages from feathers is by their colour. Colour holds a vibration, a specific energy that interacts with our being and speaks to our psyche.
The colour meanings:
These interpretations are a guideline. Trust your own intuition. Hold the feather to your heart and listen. Feel the language of the feather.
Explore the shape and size of the feather as well. The doctrine of signatures will add meaning to the message. And the direction the feather is pointing might be a sign.
A recent feather I picked up had no tip. I saw this as my crown chakra and thinking mind being conjested. I went home and remedied with the crystal labrodrite and an energy ritual.
Enjoy my interpretations and let me know what you like.
Black feather – Know you are cloaked in a veil of protection. You are safe.
Grey feather – It’s time for stillness. Turn your energies inwards. Calm, slow days are your best medicine now.
Black and white – Welcome change is on its way. You are ready. The time is now.
Blue – A spiritual gift is coming your way. It’s time for a healing. Gift of healing.
Brown, black – Ground. Anchor your energies. Centre yourself. Touch the earth. Call back your scattered energies.
Red/green – Clash. Spend time alone. Empty your head. There is confusion in the messages you are receiving.
Green – Replenish your heart chakra. It’s time to receive. Nourishment. New growth.
Yellow – A gift coming your way. An insight. A message. Stay bright. Connect to the suns rays. Smile more.
White – Your angels are with you. Trust your chosen path. You are on the right path.
Red – Courage of heart. Strong passion. Love.
Striped – You are where you are meant to be. Guidance coming in your dreams. You are heading in the right direction.
Flow gently my friend. xox Carole
