Dream Symbol – Feathers

While walking my dog (aka trying to walk my dog while he runs after bees, butterflies, or any other kind of flying insect), I came across a few feathers on the sidewalk. They were dark in color and felt so random. The thought came to my mind, Folklore says when you come across a feather it has a specific meaning. I wonder what this means for me! My curious self decided to look into the meaning of feathers in our dreams and waking life.

Although different religions believe different things about feathers, the general meaning is protection, comfort, ease, and possible financial gains. If we find a feather it could mean there are messages for you related to healing and teaching. It may mean that you need to clear the negative energy you hold in your energy field and focus more on the positive aspects of your life.

Additional Dream Meanings With Feathers

    • Advice: Pay attention to how the feathers present themselves. If the feathers are not in a good condition this may mean you are being ridiculed about your projects, work, or appearance. When you are faced with these situations know that people can only have power over you if you allow them to. Stand your ground with confidence in who you are.
