Birds can often appear in our dreams, and their meaning depends on many details. We should always remember as many details about our dreams as possible.
Even the state of health of the bird itself can outline even more clearly what the meaning of the dream is.
Dreaming of a wounded bird is an example of a moment of sadness, of bitter awareness, of disappointment; if the bird is bristling with wings or legs, or if it has any malformations, it is possible that the dream is bringing to the stage the symbol of a story of sick love, which brings suffering and tears.
Another aspect to consider is the breed of bird that enters the dream. If the dream has as its protagonist an eagle or a raptor it is possible that the subject wants to highlight his own self, his soul, and his own identity.
Birds Symbolism in Cultures
The bird, as a symbol, is very ancient and all religions have used it to give it always many high meanings.
Among the Hindus, the First Cause initially had no name; later it was represented with a mysterious bird, always invisible, which dropped an Egg into the Chaos, which later became the universe.
This operation is entrusted to Brahma, the Kalahansa (Swan in Space and Time), who at the beginning of each Manvantara lays a Golden Egg (the Great Circle), from which the Universe is born.
The species of bird is not very important, but it must still be a water bird, which flies and moves on the water, like the Biblical Spirit. It comes out of the waters to give life to other beings.
For this reason Moses forbade eating pelican and swan. The Rosicrucians adopted the pelican as a symbol of the XVIII degree; in the Book of Numbers, Ain Soph is called “the Ardent Soul of the Pelican”.
In Zoroastrian literature, the bird symbolized Kar-shipta “who dwells in heaven”; his singing was interpreted as “the expression of a God”.
The ancient Magi represented the inner divinity of man as a bird, while the Greeks represented it with a butterfly. In the Tree of Knowledge “the birds dwell and make their nests”, that is, the Souls and the Angels have their seat there.
Dreams about Birds Landing On You – Meaning
The presence of the bird alone is not enough. To get a clearer and more complete view, it is first necessary to understand what the characteristics of the bird are.
If the dream is populated by colorful and cheerful birds, such as parrots or tropical birds, you can think of positive news, strength, joy and good news coming.
The vision associated with the intimate aspect sees instead in the colors of the feathers a possible courtship (executed or immediately).
On the other hand, if the bird that appears in the dream is featherless or plucked, it is possible that hard, difficult times are coming.
It is good to point out that this difficulty can be linked either to real and objective obstacles, or on the contrary to an incapacity of the subject in facing an obstacle even of medium size.
