When you find a feather what does it mean?

Table or Plant Marker

It is said that when you find a feather on the ground it is a sign that you are getting a message soon. If the feather is white it is a message from an angel. It is nice to think about but is it real? I was, lets say, on the fence and one that needed more proof. This past weekend I had a series of events occur that when I look at them individually mean not a thing, together something much bigger.

It started with discovering a mirror I had cut for an order long ago and for whatever the reason was never used. I had not thought about it for a long time. So why now was it important? I did not need it and had no plans for it at the present moment in time yet I stopped and I looked for it. Not finding it I put it out of my head knowing I would eventually discover it. I had decided to work on some old frames cleaning them up since it was so warm out. Playing with water sounded like fun and Tuck is always up for a romp in the water. My old frames I keep in a corner of my wood shop where they sit collecting dust. Again for no reason I needed to work today on theses frames. These frames always fell into when I had some free time I will clean them up and use them. Why over the weekend with so much to do was the right time I am not sure until I found wrapped in brown paper the mirror I had thought about a day ago. I smiled to myself and thought someone beyond my seeing helped me out in this discovery. I thanked whomever it was and went on my business.

The weather broke and it was a great time to get working outside cleaning mowing and weeding. I am very conscious of things in the yard because I dislike snakes and have had a run in with a couple since moving here. I like to give them a wide berth. As I worked in the garden I thought about the little garter snake I saw here last year and thankfully as I finished I did not see again. Cleaned up and took Tuck for a nice walk down the street. Looking everywhere enjoying the day I stood waiting for Tuck to finish up and I glanced down and there no more than 5″ away is a snake. His head up staring at me not threatening just observing. I calmly moved myself and Tuck away not knowing if the snake was poisonous or not. Once at a safe distance found it was a large garter snake. As I walked back home my mind went over what I had thought about working in the garden. How glad I had been about not seeing a snake and then I did. How I have lately thought about something with no emotional connection and it would then appear.

Then yesterday I discovered a feather in the same spot as the inquisitive friendly snake. It was from a blue bird. My mother who had passed years ago had a love for blue birds. Every time I see these birds I think of her and how much she loved watching them. Yesterday was also the birthday of my grandmother, Honey. She was my mothers’ mother. So is there a message? I do not believe in coincidences or accidents. There was something different about that snake so was it a snake or something else? I think it was a message from people or guides on the other side. There is great power in our thoughts. Be careful. Be aware. Be open to the messages around you. I can only ask myself why did I have to work on those frames then and why the snake appeared at the side of the road only to find a blue bird feather the next day. But the story does not end here. The feather led me to much more.

You will have to wait. In the meantime think about any messages you may be receiving from angels and people passed over.

    1. Yvonne It is my understanding when you find a white feather it is a message from your angel or someone very close to you. I hope you payed attention to the little things happening in your life. White feathers very special, love it.

  1. Saturday my husband found a large white feather (very solid quill) while pulling out our painting stuff. We planned on painting walls on Sunday. We laughed at the notion of painting with a feather… Yesterday (sunday) we were painting all day. Late in the afternoon, while cleaning up the pans in the kitchen, a small brown and white feather fell off my husband… Now we are wondering what is the significance of 2 feathers of different colors in 2 days, happening for one person? Thank you for your response.

    1. How lovely to have two feathers appear. The significance of a large white feather is great since there are not too many birds in the wild shedding these feathers. It is why most believe these feathers have the most influence on us. I will say that each situation is different from the next or last one but the individual receiving the feather needs to observe what is going on in their lives and who has passed on. Is the action of painting any significance or is the day of the week year or was there a feeling surrounding the moment you saw the feather. Sometimes it is just finding the feather and seeing it as something special and since you noticed the first the second was a confirmation of seeing the first. I find just awareness and feeling the light and love that always flows from the message enough. Great experience and thanks for sharing.

  2. My lovely granddaughter found out that an ex boyfriend had died in tragic circumstances.They were still friends .She is devestated but the morning after she heard the terrible news she found a beautiful big fluffy white feather.I can’t say how much it means to her. Funeral was yesterday so so sad.
    I think you are a really special person if you receives gift like this.

    1. What a beautiful gift your granddaughter received from her angel. They stand with us in extreme times and in the good ones too. I think her boyfriend wanted her to know he is with her always. Stay open, our connection to love is always there. Bless you and your granddaughter and shine bright! Laurie

  3. I was riding with my cousin on the interstate too fix his spare tire …next too the car I see all white feather but the tip was dirty… about 5 min later it was a smaller feather but it too was all white but clean…I wonder what that means

    1. White feathers are always a message from our angels and I am presuming that your angels wanted to tell you they were riding right next to you. Maybe one was for your cousin and one for you? Also angels like to say thank you for looking out for each other, this is a very big plus. You were definitely in good company…blessings.

  4. As I was walking in my garden, a small fluffy feather floated down in my direction and landed close to my feet. What does this mean?

    1. My guess is Spirit wants to let you know you are loved and someone who loves you is wrapping their energy around you. This may be an angel, a guide or a loved one who passed. What or who came to mind when you saw the feather is usually the key. Sweet blessings, L

  5. Recently I had surgery…the pain has been intence…when doing my exercising on my street with my walker I have been finding feathers…right in my path…the first one was white…now I see feathers in my path everywhere! This has just start ed last week.. What do u think?

    1. No matter what the intensity of your pain physical or emotional believe that when you ask for help there are beings there to help. I truly believe that your guides are saying let us help you. Let their energy their healing energy surround you. Feel the warmth and allow them to work with you. When you get a white feather it means the big guns have come. See yourself feeling better and then let it go. They will do the rest.
      All the joy and light is shining on you. Feel well soon, Laurie

  6. Hello !!! After my car accident I started seeing feathers appear .. And weird stuff started happening like doors opening for me . The lid to my garbage can in my house slammed a few times by its self . The alarm on my phone went off & the device wasn’t even on .. Things like this lasted for about four months .. Is somebody trying to tell me something ???

    1. Hi Charlotte,
      I have a suspicion that your guides were very upset with you. They were present protecting you when you had your car accident. But more to the point is why you had the accident. What happened in your life or what were you not paying attention to that caused this problem? I had a serious car accident many years ago and I should never have walked away but I did with only a cut under my mouth. When I was still in the car not very conscious I noticed an old man sitting in the seat next to me. I knew then I was OK but afterwards realized I needed to change. Since then I pay attention to signs and have learned there is no set answer but instead the receiver of the signs needs to ask the big question – What do I need to do, change, listen and feel? But when your guides get frustrated or there is a sense of urgency yup they can make a racket. If you don’t pay attention in time they stop. I choose to always pay attention to what advise they are sending me. When I ignored these subtle nudges was when chaos in my life happened. Oh! Most of all don’t take these signs as something bad is happening or going to happen. Our guides love to give us a standing ovation for when we get it right.
      Blessings and stay present always,

      1. Hi ..I’m just confused about something as far as my car accident goes it wasn’t my fault . Do you think it was meant to happen because of some mistakes in my life that happened a long time ago ??. The feathers I was finding I thought if you find those in your house it was a sign from the Angels .. I’m just trying to figure some things out .. I’m hoping you can help with that ..

      2. Hi Charlotte,
        I tried several times to send you a reply but for some reason they never got sent. So let me try again. In no way should you feel an accident is your fault and I hope I didn’t make you feel that I was implying you were at fault. Accidents are experiences and unless you with thought and intention wanted to harm then let that thought and feeling float away.
        Yes angels leave feathers but I find others do too, guides and fairies. When you found the feather inside I am certain an angel left it. Whether it is an angel or guide the message is for you alone. Think about what it was you were doing or how were you feeling at that moment. Were you feeling unlovable, maybe forgotten, maybe guilt, then they were saying you are very loved and special because not everyone finds feathers and not everyone realizes it is a special thing when they do. Ultimately you have to discover what that message is but with being quiet and asking your guides for clarity I am sure you will discover that answer.
        Have a brilliant day.

      3. Hello !! Don’t mean to bother you again .. But what does it mean when you see a white feather falling out of the sky . My husband & I have seen this twice ..

    1. Wow what a contrast but then maybe it was the only way to get your attention. Haven’t a clue as to why or the significance of the feather but always find it nice to pick them up, take them home and say thank you. Great feather story. ❤

    2. I too found one in front of the door of a convenient store on the mat and then 6 days later at an icecream parlor, same exact grey and white only smaller in front of the door on the inside!

      1. Sorry I did not get back with you just saw your comment. In answer sometimes in our heads or minds we ask for some direction an answer to a question and feathers so often are Spirits way of bringing us to the moment. I think colors, size and shapes mean little most of the time but you being aware of them is. Spirit asks all to be present.

      2. Hummm, both food oriented stores? I say if you see a smaller feather could say you watch your weight or you should watch what you are eating. Or you have and Spirit is saying good for you Jannie. Love the feather stories.

  7. I was coming out of the store and as I stepped out there on theground in front of the door was a grey and white feather. Six days later my granddaughter and I were at an ice cream parlor we got up to leave and as I approached the door there on the floor right in front of the door, this time on the inside was another feather the exact same colors and marking as the first one only a little smaller. I couldn’t believe it. What are the odds? Any thoughts on these 2 incidents within 6 days?

  8. Hi there, I noticed a black and white feather on the edge of the toilet seat in my bathroom. So random.. What could this mean? I will say, a couple of weeks ago I did ask for a feather. So obviously it’s not a coincidence.

    1. Now I have feathers show up in some very unusual places but never on the toilet seat. What a great sense of humor Spirit has don’t you think? Black and white the yin and yang of life could be saying go with the flow, have more fun and see the humor in all situations. Thanks for sharing your feather spotting.

  9. Howdy, I have a question about a feather showing up between two people. We were driving down the interstate highway then Courtney my passenger saw a grey with white feather on the lid of the console. I still have a good feeling about it. Your input would be great. Have a awesome day. God Bless.

    1. Hi Matthew,
      Thinking it is a blessed union but just a guess. I never assume what spirit says but when you feel a good vibe go with it. I think a dream catcher is a fabulous idea, great energy! Love your story…Laurie ❤

      1. Hi , I was wondering what it means when you see a white feather fall in front of you when it is outside ..

      2. I know everyone gets wrapped up in the color but it is my observation this means nothing. What feathers do is spark a feeling inside and for you this may be a white feather that means the most. Feathers are lovely ways for spirit to get our attention. I always say what is the felling you had when you saw the feather.

  10. I found a small fluffy brown feather next to my kettle on right side of my kitchen, would you help me understand this meaning please xx

    1. This is funny because I found a sweet small feather on my kitchen table yesterday. Maybe spirit is telling you to take a break and have some tea? What came to mind the moment you saw the sweet little feather? In my case it was re-paint my kitchen cabinets the tan coincidently the same color of the feather. Today I did just that. Hope I helped you out ladies. Laurie ❤
