Feather Messages

This article was written by Raye Wolfe
posted under

I was having a difficult time deciding whether I should take a series of classes. They wouldnít boost my income, and I already had a degree, but these classes seemed important to me spiritually. In a fit of indecision before I had to register or let the opportunity go, I spoke aloud.

ďI really need a big sign,Ē I explained. ďAnd I need it today. If itís a good idea to take the classes, if theyíll let me grow and do something positive with my life, please send me a sign.Ē Iíd read that feathers are often a sign that spirit guides hear people, so I asked that my sign be a feather. However, because I was skeptical and needed a lot of proof that a pigeon hadnít randomly flown around my home, I specifically asked for a big sign. I didnít want to miss it, just in case the classes were a good idea.

An hour later I headed out my front door to walk to the mailbox. A gray feather stood in the grass in front of my doorstep. I picked it up, wondering if the feather was a coincidence or my sign. Suddenly, I couldnít help laughing. My spirit guide must have a fantastic sense of humor. Along every step I took toward the mailbox was a feather-each a different size, shape, or color-about a dozen altogether. There are no trees in my yard, and no birds nested in the eaves of my house. There were no signs of an injured or molting bird; in fact, the feathers were from several different types of birds. I had my answer. I took the classes, which became the first step in taking a series of courses that has changed my perception and attitude toward life.

His friend insisted that Honey was five, because the dog had been alive that many years. Said Gabe, "Sometimes Honey is really one, like when he chews our shoes; sometimes he's 89, like when he pretends he's too old to listen when you... read this article
