I happened to look out the window this morning and saw a white feather descending lazily from the sky and although I was in engaged in a conversation with a friend, I noted it out loud and we both took a moment to observe it.
Later this afternoon, I went for a long overdue walk to the beach and came upon this black feather. The following is some info I found on their meanings.
Because we cannot see angels, it is believed that they will sometimes use a feather to remind us that they are here for us or to send us a little encouragement that we are on the right path. They represent the freedom of your mind and heart and your ability to travel, change and move through life freely.
A white feather is a message of hope and comfort from them, reassuring you that everything will turn out okay in the end. If you have lost someone you loved, it may be a message from them letting you know they have successfully crossed into the spirit realm and are now watching over you.
A black feather may be a sign of protection from your Angels. It is a reminder that your Angels are here to shield and protect you, and to deflect negative energies from your life. A black feather is a reminder that you are not alone.
When feathers appear, angels are near.✨
These sunsets! I’m sure going to miss these Ben Lomond sunsets when we leave next week.
We spent yesterday out with a professional photographer snapping obnoxiously cute couple photos. What a fun Christmas gift from my folks!
FINISTERRE “The road in the end taking the path the sun had taken,
into the western sea, and the moon rising behind you
as you stood where ground turned to ocean: no way
to your future now but the way your shadow could take,
walking before you across water, going where shadows go,
no way to make sense of a world that wouldn't let you pass
except to call an end to the way you had come,
to take out each frayed letter you brought
and light their illumined corners, and to read
them as they drifted through the western light;
to empty your bags; to sort this and to leave that;
to promise what you needed to promise all along,
and to abandon the shoes that had brought you here
right at the water's edge, not because you had given up
but because now, you would find a different way to tread,
and because, through it all, part of you could still walk on,
no matter how, over the waves.” - David Whyte
