Dream Symbol – Birds

When I think of birds I think of a few different kinds. For example,  Mockingbirds come immediately to mind. I find it fascinating how they mimic the sounds of birds and frogs around them.  Another bird I think of is the Sandhill Crane. First things first, it should be noted that these birds are protected in Florida. All I have to say about them is these are some of the meanest birds I’ve ever come across. 

Here’s some helpful advice when you come across these birds. If find yourself face to face with these birds when you walk out your door do not make direct eye contact. You should just turn around and walk quickly away. If you don’t these birds will run after you. Unfortunately, my lab and I experienced this first hand. We ended up having to run around our house to get in the back door because the canes were guarding the front door. I guess, in hindsight, they are doing a good job at keeping people away from the front door. Neighborhood watch at its finest!

Flying right into the topic at hand, birds symbolize peace, communication, and freedom (and security in some instances). They also represent our lives and the path we are heading towards spiritually. Birds can also symbolize happiness, spiritual power, and messages from past loved ones.
