As a symbol across many cultures, feathers have always represented a connection to spiritual realms and to divinity. And because of their connection to birds, they have always been a symbol of flight and freedom, not just physically, but also in a mental or spiritual sense.
What do feathers symbolize?
The feather often represents strength and growth, as well as hope and freedom. Birds fly freely in the clouds, closest to the spirit realm. Sometimes when a feather is in our path, it may be perceived as a message from the other side. Feathers can symbolize ascension, spirit, flight and even heaven.
Does finding a feather mean anything?
For many within the faith, the connection to angels is the strongest spiritual meaning that shines through. The wings of an angel are a reminder that we fly above all obstacles we experience. Finding a feather can indicate that your guardian angel is near or has a message it wishes for you to hear.
