Back in June, I had an interesting experience when I found a brown and white feather in an unexpected place while talking to a friend on the phone. Tonight, as I was taking a box out to the recycle bin in another friend’s backyard, a black and white feather just happened to be in my direct path as I walked across the patio. When I showed it to her, she said she has never seen a feather just lying around like that in the over two decades she has lived here. Yes, there are plenty of varieties of birds in this area, from doves to blue jays to cardinals, but I’ve never seen one that matches the feather I found tonight. And it was directly in my path (like the one back in June), so there was no way I could miss it.
Naturally, I researched the significance of a black and white feather and found this from AskAngels.com:
Feathers with a combination of black and white are often a sign that important changes are soon to unfold (or already are happening) in your life. Trust that you’re supported and the changes happening are in alignment with your highest interest, and are ushering in greater healing, spiritual growth, and alignment with your highest truth.
Black and white feathers also signify divine neutrality. Rather than getting caught up in duality and judging things as good or bad, allow what is to simply be.
Visually, black and white feathers remind us of the balance between light and dark and call for us to integrate shadow aspects to become whole and unified beings.
Black and white feathers also represent connection, a sense of union, and bring the reminder that you’re loved and supported by angels as you now step into important life changes.
The first sentence comes as no surprise since I’ve been initiating important changes for the past few months, which I’ll share when the time is right. And even though I’ve had confirmation for quite some time (gut feeling, intuition, feedback from others, etc.) that the path I’m embarking on is absolutely the best one for me, I gratefully accept and receive this unexpected validation.
Through my involvement in Tasha Chen’s community and the friendships I’ve developed with people like Ilene Gottlieb, I’m learning how to “be” no matter what the appearances are, and to avoid judging an experience as good or bad. I’ll admit, it’s definitely a practice.
I’m also thankful for the reminder that the angels are supporting me through this transition. As we like to say in Tasha’s community: EVIDENCE!
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
