  1. In my dream, it was cold and the bird came through an opening and was unable to fly (snow was on it), so i basically picked up the bird and the snow fell off then it was able to fly. The bird was mostly dark colored and white, What does that mean?

  2. I was on a bus and as I looked out the window there was a crow perched outside. With his back facing us. He was looking over his left shoulder at me. I noted out loud what long nails he had. And the dream continued. Crows have been contacting me in my dreams and my daily life. Please let me know what you think about his long nails…

  3. I have been having an interesting experience of having “different” dreams and images pop into my head. My normal dreams and visualizations always have a dream quality. They have a lag time, or are the usual dreamy fuzzy look. But sometimes I have an image pop into my head that is crystal clear as though I’m looking right at it. It’s so clear it stands out. L A recent meditation a very clear image of a bald Eagle popped into my mind and the next day I saw a bald eagle in a tree, and two more within the next few days. Now some of my dreams are starting to be that way. I’ll have regular dreams and then one will be super vivid. I had one last night where I was looking to the North. The land had an eerie golden orange cast from the sun but the clouds were super dark blue like when you are in the sun but see a storm a ways off. Tons of birds were flying my way and I was looking at them with awe. Tons of crows flying towards me to the South. I felt in awe. Then, birds started falling from the sky. Large loud thuds, some were splatting. I was kind of horrified. I ran over to a few and they were snowy owls. They weren’t dead but the other ones I saw were. Songbirds and a heron. The snowy owl looked at me and it’s expressions were as if it was talking to me, it’s eyes little slits. It jumped up on the fence disoriented. But no real words were exchanged between us even though it was like it had. I grabbed a few birds and it was a repeat with the snowy owl. Other birds were smucked bodies. Most of my dreams lately have had intense feelings with them. This one wasn’t so focused on feeling. I was curious what you thought it could mean? I have been noticing synchronicities and trying to enhance my senses and psychic abilities and interpretations. I think what was strongest in this dream was a fascination with the subject matter, not so much feelings.

  4. I recently had a dream where I had been carrying a blue bird on my right index finger, upon entering a garden of an unfamiliar house, after spotting what I thought was a second blue bird just on the roof over the porch, I then coax it onto my other finger because I thought the other bird might like a friend, I soon find the previous bird had disappeared, but upon this other “Bird” hopping onto the same finger the previous one was perched, its shear weight drew my arm down nearly to my side, its weight was far too heavy for a birds, so i tried to flick it from my finger in a brief moment of panic, only to have it latch onto the base of my thumb and around my finger with what looked to be tiny claws,the creature appeared to have arms and legs, similar to a sloth, though that is when this “Bird” ceased being a bird, but instead this odd, mole like creature with a worm like tongue, wearing ornamental bird parts made of metal, as if pretending to be a bird feature from a garden in order to look like a bird, knowing it was too late to get rid of the creature, I accepted it and procceeded to leave the garden with this odd little monster, I took two steps and then woke up

  5. I have had a re-occurring dream of a bird, having trouble flying and each time, I would try to catch it but would fail at that task. Does anyone know anything about this?

  11. Angel Davis on

    I dreamt of being in a big cage overflowing with bright/multiple colored birds and catching a lot of them.
    The last one i caught was the most beautiful of all to me, it was yellow and bright red around his eyes and on his belly, but then this mean man came and was burning all the birds making them all fly away out the top of the cage….some sticking to the top burned but still alive…. most vivid and crazy dream ever.

  13. I had a dream last night that my boyfriend and I were laying in the bed and we looked up and there was a pigeon that had come into the room from the window. it just walked in and stood in the window seal. it was a huge pigeon. we tried unsuccessfully to shoo the pigeon back out the window. the pigeon went to the window and a chicken appeared in the room and opened up the window with his beak and slid the window open just enough for the pigeon to get out and then it closed the window. I commented…its like the movie attack of the birds. my boyfriend and I laughed and then I tried to get the chicken out. I grabbed the chicken and was trying to push it out out the bedroom door when a white-headed bald eagle stuck his head in the crack of the door. the eagles head was at the same height as me. I’m 5’6″. I was startled and I tried to close the door but it pushed the door open and the eagle Came towards me and somehow I fell down and ended up on top of the eagle. the eagle was flopping around trying to get up and I was trying to get up at the same time and then I woke up out of my dream. What does this dream mean?

  16. I had a dream where I flew to Epypt. Once there I went to a kind of zoo, where I found the bird cage. Every bird looked happy and well fed. This one light caramel creamy looking bird was perching on the ground mourning a cracked egg. When I got closer she went to sit on the other egg to warm it. It looked like the bird could almost cry… I woke up
