Recently feathers have been appearing in my work. I wasn’t sure why, but I listened to them. I think they represent strength, independence, freedom, and flight. Lately I have been getting these types of magical messages – like the isolated feather in a pile of tumbled sticks and boulders during my walk along the shores of Lake Superior – which in itself is a magical place.

What does it mean to find a feather in your path?  There are many mystical stories about feathers in your path – I like this one from :

“Feathers are sacred gifts from the Divine, a show of force from the heavens that they are listening to your prayers, your wishes, and your desires. It’s a symbol of acknowledgment that someone or something in the spirit world is looking out for you, keeping you safe, and empowering you to whatever path you set upon. If you see a feather, your angel is near, and they are reminding you that, with them, you are safe.”

White feathers come from the purest angels, and thus are messages of peace, love, protection, and light. Finding a white feather is a powerful message and blessing from the Divine, and is a sign that all will be right for you soon. It’s also a symbol of cleansing, that whatever negative energy you might have accrued over a period of time is now being washed away, driven off by divine light and love.
