Feathers, Air Elements, Heart Chakra Wisdom

Symbology and the Language of the Universe

I’ve always believed in ‘signs’ some call omens. They are the way the “Universe” spirits, Elementals, Ancestors, Gods and Goddesses, and the Higher Self speak to you. It is through this kind of symbology that a very different kind of language and exchange occurs.

childhood musings with the earth goddess

As a kid, I was in touch with the magical invisible! I’d see the dead and mystical animals, know which plants and berries to eat while playing in the forest alone. I had a keen sense of listening and knowing well beyond my years so much so that my sisters would ask me psychic questions to prophesy dreams and my mother treated me as if I was already an adult equal to her knowledge and maturity. 

I opened my tiny self up to the world of magic, shamanism, and indigenous memory.

I played well with other children and equally enjoy my alone time especially in the nearby forests where nature became my guide, mentor and teacher. I’d find myself exploring all the forest had to offer rolling down hills in laughter and laying alone in open grassy meadows staring into the sky. I’d cloud watch and see them take form as faces, animals, and creative ideas. In fact, nature was very much my second but most powerful teacher and mentor.

I’d run through the woods imagining I was once indigenous to the land knowing everything there was to know about the secrets of the Earth and I secretly thanked Mother Earth for her generous gifts and protection from harm and danger. Under a pine tree, I learned about pranayama (breathing) and had my first meditation at the age of eight years old. I was suffering from childhood trauma and thought if I could just breathe it would save my life from stress, worry and verbal-emotional abuse. It did! And in this way, like cause and effect I learned the gifts of vibration and frequency. I opened my tiny self up to the world of magic, shamanism, and indigenous memory.  Because, I also had psychic gifts, I’d play games telling the future,  and go into shamanic trance through the human body, through tunnels and vortices, and travel the earth as a bird.  My childhood, although often traumatic was joyful, full of mystery, magic play and teachings, and consumed with art and love of scholarship. It is here I was rooted often in silence and solitude, the wonderful world of symbology and higher forms of communication with the divine and mystical.


Feather Meaning and Geese – Goose Animal Totem 

Finding Geese Feathers

Birds are the messengers of the Gods, sky creatures full of wisdom, symbology, sacred travel and spiritual knowledge

Feathers are from the lofty beings and they are symbols of Inspiration (spirit/breath) and freedom (travel to roam). They represent the Air and Mentalism. They are associated with the Goddess and Gods of Heaven. Feathers are feelings of fertility, growth, gratitude and thanksgiving.

When you are gifted feathers you share in the web of empowerment to receive messages from sacred forms of communication and also give and present this information to others in the form of art, poetry, writing, singing, even dance on a spiritual level. You are often a channel between worlds of the hidden and the seen, sometimes a mystic, psychic, telepath, and channel for the divine. You can be a very sensitive empath who feels, sees, and knows what others experience and provide wisdom and clarity where they may not be able to see, feel or know.

Words associated with Feather wisdom: 

Fertility • Truth • Travel • Spirit • Semper Fidelis (always faithful) • Ascension • Flight • Movement • Heavens • Duat • Messages • Messengers • Speed • Promise • Peace • Maat • Heart Centeredness • Celestial Wisdom

I know they are all one thing and I am capable of living this intimate fulfilling experience in this now. Kisses, hugs and deepest love to him for sharing those simple words of wisdom. ❤

Wisdom: On a deeper level, geese wisdom asks you about Self Sacrifice and to explore the deeper inner workings of your heart and actions.
