Birds - Messages

This morningI went to the garage in my apartment building to get my car.

I discovered a white pigeon walking in front in front of my car.

When it saw me, it started to walk around towards to parking spot on my right - the driver's side of my car.

I saw it attempting to fly away but couldn't spread its right wing.

I asked Z for help as I wasn't sure what to do.

Walter, the porter in the building, came to our rescue.

I touched the bird and gave it healing energy.

The pigeon flew away to the trees in the park!

Was there a synchronicity with helping this bird?

Earlier in the morning Connie had told me the parrot story. Parrots mean 'repeating something'. I had also posted three news stories about birds. Connie - in Texas - also reported today that her yard is filled with cardinals. Cardinals are associated with the energies of her deceased husband, Leon. Just after Leon passed in 1996 cardinals began to appear to her and her children.

Another friend called to tell me that yesterday as he sat at his pool, he was surrounded by birds - more than is usually in his area. They seemed to be telling him something.

From ancient times to the present, most cultures have beliefs, legends, or superstitutions about birds as symbols and forecasters of events.

This was often depicted on cave/rock art and heirogylphs.

Cranes are revered in Asia as symbols of long life.

Cuckoos are welcomed as a sign of spring in Europe and are considered omens of a happy marriage.

Doves symbolize love and peace. To dream of doves means happiness is at hand.

Eagles are considered sacred by Native Americans. The claws and bones of the birds are believed to drive illness away. As the symbol of the U.S., the bald eagle stands for endurance, independence, and courage.

Owls are considered prophets of doom. In ancient Rome as well as modern European and American folklore, a hooting owl warns of death.

The Phoenix is a mythical bird that dies by fire, then rises from its own ashes after 500 years! It symbolizes renewed life.

Ravens are said to predict death and pestilence (disease). Folklore has it that the raven's sense of smell is so acute that it can smell death before it comes. No one wanted to see a raven fly over a house!

Storks are symbols of good luck. In folklore, storks deliver babies.

Black birds are sometimes considered an omen of death or transformation.

Birds are harbingers - messengers of events to come.

A dove with an olive branch came to Noah to tell him that he would find land. (In my Italian neighborhood, a dove with an olive branch would probably signify another restaurant opening.) LOL!

The word "auspice," meaning an omen or prognostication, is derived from a Latin word meaning "an observer of birds."

I wonder . . . what could this mean for me at this time?

As we are in Mercury Retrograde - which has to do with communications - it could have to do with messages - delayed or repeated.

Messages from the past could be repeating now so you can see them in a new light!

It could mean - pay more attention to the messages you receive as they may have more significance than you realize.

Wait just a minute . . . . . . I just thought of something . . . . Back in ancient Egypt there was a God - a bird headed being - good old Thoth.

Just this morning Thoth [aka Z] - told me to post all about Alchemy. Awareness is shifting.
