PLEASE READ: Before sending me your bird questions asking if seeing a dead bird means you are going to have something horrible happen to you, or that you are going to die, or that someone you love is going to die, please read the original blog below. These are SUPERSTITIONS, and old wives tales. Seeing dead birds is not a forerunner to something bad happening. So please stop asking me if you are going to die. Because the answer is yes, you, like everyone else is going to die, eventually, but you are not going to die because you saw a dead bird.
Here is the original blog:
In the past two weeks I have had three different people ask me what it means to be seeing dead birds. They are seeing one bird, then a couple of days later may see three birds, and then a couple of days after they will see another dead bird. The species is different in each case. These beautiful animals are actually messengers from the Divine, Spirit, Universe, God, whatever name you choose. The message is not one of doom and gloom, you are not going to die in the next three days, it is not a “forerunner” of death and destruction. One of the people who emailed me about this wondered if it is a forerunner to the end of to the world that is coming in 2012 that she has been hearing so much about. These dead birds are actually very similar to the “Death” card in a tarot deck. It represents a death, but it is a death of something you have been focused on. It could be the death or “end” of a bad relationship, or a bad financial situation, or a behaviour pattern you have been wanting to break, etc. And with all things that end, the way is then clear for new opportunities to come into your life. For instance, if you are in an unhealthy relationship, it is unlikely that a new healthy relationship is going to come into your life if you are still involved or healing from the unhealthy one. Once you have dealt with it and are ready to move on, the universe will send you a message to let you know that it is now time to move forward with your life. That is what these dead birds are, a message that whatever you were dealing with is now “dead” and behind you and you are now ready to move forward with the new opportunity that has been presenting itself to you but that you have been ignoring for some reason. So, see the sign, and determine what message it is sending you and be grateful that you have now received the message and start looking for the new opportunity.
