Have you ever found a white feather on the floor with no explanation as to how it got there? You may be pleased to discover that a white feather could be a gift from the angels above. Whether they’re reminding you to take care of yourself or simply notifying you of their presence, white feathers appear when angels are near.
Angels are near
Everyone has at least one or two angels to watch over and protect them but we tend to go through life unaware of their existence. Angels are usually strong silent types that rarely make their presence known.
If you’re lucky, an angel may send you a tiny ‘hello’ with the help of a small sign or signal. These signs can come in many forms from a subtle flash of light to a sudden feeling of happiness, love and warmth. Often, this signal is in the form of a lone white feather.
A loved one is watching out for you
Have you lost someone close to you? Whether you’re grieving the loss of a relative or close friend, the appearance of a white feather could be a sign that your loved one is nearby. Although you won’t be able to see them, find comfort in the knowledge they’re watching out for you and encouraging you to live your life to the full.
When we lose someone, the best thing we can do is carry on living our lives while taking inspiration from the person who passed away. If you’ve lost a friend who was a budding activist, carry on their great work or find ways to make them proud. If you’ve lost a relative who had a fascinating hobby or interest, take inspiration from their passion and drive by finding a new activity of your own.
TV presenter Gloria Hunniford strongly believes that her late daughter, Caron Keating, sends her white feathers to let her know she’s watching over her. Gloria says: “Racing out of my front door one morning, I was aware that I was running late and felt a wave of panic. As I looked down the drive, there on the ground beside my car lay a single white feather. As I bent to pick it up, I knew instantly it was a reminder from my daughter to drive safely.
“When she was alive, Caron told me that an isolated white feather was an angel’s calling card. And since her death, I am certain that she uses them to send messages to me.”
Everything is going to be okay
If you come across a white feather, take it as a reminder to keep faith and stay strong. Sometimes we can find ourselves feeling overwhelmed or stressed out by things that, in the grand scheme of things, don’t matter.
If you’ve been worrying a lot lately, use the appearance of a white feather as a sign you should take time out to calm down and relax. After all, worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles, it takes away today’s peace. Everything is going to be okay.
You’re supported and protected by angels who will watch over you no matter what you do. Although you may not realise it, they’re guiding you through life and silently encouraging you to make the most promising decisions.
While white feathers are the most common type of feather sent to us by angels, it’s not unheard of for brightly coloured feathers to appear when angels are near. Whether you’ve found a pink, yellow or green feather here’s our guide to the meaning behind the feathers you find.
