Feathers! Feathers are mystical and deeply connected to spirit!
Feathers of all shapes, sizes, varieties, colors.
Throughout history, feathers have served as spiritual symbols for shamans and priests, as symbols of royalty for kings and chiefs, symbols of healing, or symbols of sacred power for cultures as far back as ancient Egyptian, Asian or Celtic eras.
These cultures possessed abilities to communicate with nature in ways that have been overlooked or forgotten in our own time.
We live in a holographic cosmos, where a piece of the whole reflects the entire whole. When a feather leaves its bird-home and falls to earth, it carries all of the energy of its former attachment to a living being. From a cosmic perspective, it also carries within it, as we carry within ourselves, the universal energy we call by many names, from “God” to “Spirit” to “divine life force.”
Why not, then, receive the message that this feather falls into our lives to give us as a message directly from that life force?
Today I have decided to explain on how to find a 'sacred feather',
Or more interestingly 'how the feather finds you.”
If you’ve found a feather along your path in life and consider it special or sacred in some way, here’s one method of honoring it and keeping it suspended in the air where it belongs.
It is always good practice to begin with a smudging or other cleansing ceremony to prepare both you and the feather. Any bird or feather that enters your life brings the message that it is there to help you use your intuitive faculties.
When I see a feather lying in an unexpected place, or even in a usual place but noticed only by me among the hundreds who have passed by, I know it is meant for me.
Not every feather is “special,” nor is every piece of stone, leaf or crystal.
But the potential for connection is there.
I need only to listen from that open-hearted space inside of me , one that urges me pick the feather up. It does to me with quite a strange and powerful urge to pick the feather up, as if I have a personal knowing it is meant for me.
Feathers also have universal symbolic meanings, recognized by tribes and traditions worldwide. Feathers speak to us of flight, of freedom, of going beyond boundaries, of getting “above it all,” or of the need to let go and travel light. In many cultures, they carried prayers to heavenly gods and bestowed extraordinary powers in battle.
Above all, feathers come to us as gifts. They come from the sky, from the sea, from trees and deep grasses They come to us unexpectedly, but not without purpose.
Their messages may be startling, soothing or sudden, but they are always an opportunity for seeing – for finding answers to questions we may not even have known we were asking. Feathers carry us into the soul’s most intimate places, where we find our own wings to climb higher than ever before. This is why using them to fan the beautiful energy from sage is so special.
Be in NO DOUBT, that if you use a feather with intent, love and gratitude ,it will have powerful results.
