If You Often See Feathers, It Could Be A Message For You And Different Colors Hold Different Meanings

It is believed that when we see feathers around us that it is a sign from the spirit side and that they are trying to send us a message.

Finding a feather in places where they couldn’t possibly have just floated in from a window is a clear sign our loved ones are close by making contact.

Feathers represent freedom and moving beyond boundaries that we so often put in place as that is what we are led to believe we should do, should you see a combination of colors and multiple feathers they hold different meanings.

Interpreting the Meaning of the Feather Sign

When you see a feather ask yourself what you were thinking about at the time, were you missing a loved one who has passed over. You may not know the meaning at the time but it will become clear later.

Asking for Feather As A Sign

Some people when they are missing someone ask for a sign and that sign can come with the appearance of a feather or multiple feathers of different colors. Believing that these are signs from a loved one is open to personal interpretation. We all have our own views on what they mean and if the other side even exists.
