Some say that finding feathers is a strong sign from the angelic realm.
Melanie Beckler, of www.ask-angels.com, says that Angels will often align feathers along your path, at just the right time, to offer validation, comfort or to encourage you telling you that you are on the right track.
Feathers can also be meant to draw your attention to something, or increase your awareness, or just a simple reminder that your angels are with you.
Angels use feathers for different reasons. Here is a listing that Melanie Backler put together from her www.ask-angels.com site at: http://www.ask-angels.com/spiritual-guidance/angel-feathers-meaning-finding-feathers/
Pink Feathers are a reminder of the unconditional love of your angels, and a reminder of the infinite inspiration available when you're tuned into love.
Red Feathers signify life force energy, physical vitality, stability, strength, passion, and courage.
Orange Feathers carry messages of creativity, listening to your inner voice, and staying positive to attract success.
Yellow Feathers are often a reminder to be cheerful and light-hearted, to be present, alert, and to stay focused on what you desire to magnetize these blessings into your life.
Green Feathers signify abundance and money, a fertile opportunity, as well as vibrant well-being, health, and love.
Blue Feathers bring a calming and peaceful energy, and are connected to communication, awareness, and are often a reminder to listen.
Gray feathers are a call to return to peace within to create it without. Gray is also neutral, and can be a sign that the answer to your question is not yes/no or black/white.
Brown Feathers signify grounding, home life, and stability. There is an energy of respect, grounded positivity, and balance between the physical and spiritual.
Black Feathers are a reminder of the protection of your angels, and a signal that spiritual wisdom, and magic are accessible by you within.
Feathers with purple on them carry messages of deep spirituality, transmutation of negativity, as well as the opening of psychic and spiritual sight.
This is, of course, a general look at what finding colored feathers may mean, and the deeper meaning of the angel message present within the feathers can be found by being aware and looking within.
Don't worry too much about the specific meaning though, just be open and if there is something specific the angels want you to know, it will appear. The good thing about angel messages is they are repetitive until you ‘get it' so if you miss it the first time, they'll send you the message in another way.
Black and White Feathers
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.
