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.

Finding your purpose.

The other day I watched Oprah‘s Lifeclass: The Tour with Bishop J.D. and was completely overtaken with emotion and awe. The show opened with the two chatting nothing special until I heard Oprah telling the story about how she had first gone to see this minister. She was not really interested in listening to another minister and another sermon because she had heard it all before. Then she went to hear this remarkable man speak. She felt the energy in the church pulsate. She then turned over the show J.D. and I saw and heard what she experienced. I too had heard enough ministers and enough sermons to say been there. I was at a point in my life that I felt a preacher man could not enlighten me any further about God or Source. Source has a funny way of answering your prayers or questions.

I had struggled with the question about purpose, was what I thought my purpose, right? I keep thinking my purpose should be bigger maybe more noble. I certainly did not think being an artist could be noble enough a purpose. It just had to be wrong, I had to be wrong. As he spoke about purpose I realized each person he showed as an example realized their purpose started as a child. Each one of us from the moment we decide with Source what the purpose of our lives is arrives in the womb with all that is needed for us to thrive in a life we chose to experience. When we are young we definitely know what our purpose is but as in Peter Pan we grow up and the memory dissolves. The memory hidden but if you look at what it was in your childhood that interested you, drew you in and excited you, you then have your purpose. Every one of these people said when I was a child I knew I was going to be… So I thought about myself and the answer was as simple as my question. Is being an artist living my life with purpose? Yes. I can not remember ever wanting anything else. I had interests in other things but I always wanted to paint and create. As long as I am creating I am joyfully happy.

So now I know I am living my life with purpose. Yet than why am I having so many difficulties? Because I kept fighting with the answer being that simple, therefore not believing with my heart center and living with absolute faith I was right. When we live with the heart center wide open we not only are giving to the world but receiving and that takes faith love and staying open to Source or Gods gentle whispers. I think once you fit that piece into the puzzle of your life things will start to open up and grow. Hopefully it is the case for me. Since I have just placed this piece into place I will have to see if I am right or is there more to discover. The knowing my life is on track allows for me to now make the decisions I was afraid to see.

If you can see if you can watch Oprah’s Lifeclass the Tour. As usual she has not disappointed with shows that inspire and open you up to life, a life of joy purpose and an armory to help get through the lessons we must learn. Except what ever you purpose is and go live it. I know I am now.
