Theme Song Thursday: Feathers

28 Feb

Yes, you can lose somebody overnight, yes, your whole life can be turned upside down. Life is short. It can come and go like a feather in the wind.
Shania Twain
***********
I’ve been finding lucky pennies for a very long time, not because I was looking to find them, they were looking for me. The same goes for the feathers. I’ve been finding feathers. I have some very dear friends who believe that finding feathers is a very special lucky thing. So do I, and the feathers have been finding me, too.

Here’s a beautiful rendition “The Feather Theme” from The movie “Forrest Gump.”

**********
It is commonly thought in most cultures that feathers are symbols of higher thought, spiritual progression. The line of thought here is that birds were considered divine creatures in primitive/ancient cultures because they are creatures of the sky (heaven) and therefore closer to God.

When you find feathers upon your path it could be taken to mean that you are on a higher spiritual path (whether you accept it or not), and it may be a sign of encouragement as you philosophically travel on this path.

Finding feathers on your path is also symbolic of having a lighter outlook on life or a particulary situation. When we see feathers in our midst it is considered a message that we need to lighten up, not take things too seriously, and try to find the joy in our situation.

      If you look at them as a sign, you will find them often to guide you. Hope you find many feathers.
