Brown Feather from Heaven?

Brown Feather from Heaven?

I had an interesting experience today. While I was talking to a good friend, I decided to walk out onto my parents’ back deck (where I am visiting), something I rarely do. As she and I engaged in conversation, I looked down and found this brown feather sticking up between the floor boards – as if it was waiting there for me.

My curiosity piqued, I did a little online research to figure out what it could represent.


When you look at a feather, you will notice that there is a shaft running up the center of it vertically (the white part that looks like a stalk) . Well this shaft is hollow – so the  idea is that the person’s prayers go upwards through the hollow shaft to the Creator – and then his blessings come back down to you through the same orifice, which acts as a channel.

Feathers, with their connection to wings as a spiritual metaphor, represent a  strong celestial connection to the Heavenly realms, as well as love, truth, protection, new beginnings and rebirth.

When a feather actually ands at your feet, it is traditionally seen as a positive omen that your calls have been heard and answered. But generally speaking, when you find a feather in a magical way, Spirit is communicating with you and showing you their support and guidance.

On top of the general spiritual meanings of feathers, specific colours  and colour combinations  can also add extra meaning to aid in your interpretation.

Have you heard of that saying:

“Feathers appear when angels are near?” 

Feathers have ethereal qualities and come to you as sacred gifts from heaven. They fall on your path as a sign from the Divine, sent your way in order to comfort you and place you in a state of  joy and higher awareness. Spirit is showing you that you are on the right track and reminding you of your celestial origins and deep connection to  your heavenly home beyond earth.

Not only do angels and guides  send you feathers as a sign of unconditional love and to show you that they are near and hear, guide and support you from above; but also those who have crossed over to the ‘other side.’

A feather, especially a white one, can represent that your loved one in spirit is okay, watching over you and at peace. It is their way to interact with nature and send you a message from heaven.


  • earth
  • grounding
  • grounded balance between the physical & spiritual worlds
  • stability
  • endurance
  • home life
  • friendship
  • respect

According to

Brown feathers signify grounding, home life, and stability. There is an energy of respect, grounded positivity, and the balance between the physical and spiritual.

Since my brown feather features a bit of white at the bottom, I especially like this interpretation from

Brown feathers give stability and respect. They also symbolize the home and grounding. Brown feathers banded or mixed with white bring happiness and give the kind of protection that enables one to go unnoticed amidst those who would harm them.

In light of recent events, I’m grateful to have received this sign today.
