What Do Doves Symbolize?
You've seen a Dove and want to
know what it means or symbolizes. You may dream about Doves or
find their feathers on your path.
This can certainly be a message from the universe since birds carry
symbolic and spiritual meaning. The message of the Dove
is often Purity, Innocence or as a Messenger.
Spiritual Meaning Of Doves
Birds can often be a wonderful sign of good luck, especially if we
don't see this kind of bird very often. The dove especially is a bird
symbolizing love, purity and innocence.
We often hear the term "lovey
dovey". If you see a dove and it strands out to you, or sets off your
intuition, it can be seen as a messenger that is describing love, and
not always romantic love as it may be a kind of spiritual
love. Perhaps you are being more loving to yourself as well as others.
into your intuition and see if you can sense what this bird is meaning
Doves are often a pure white and are seen as spiritual birds. They are
also a symbol of peace in today's world, and doves may be released at
ceremonies to represent peace, at weddings to represent love, or at
funerals to represent the passing
of a loved one.
The dove can also represent balance, and you may look at your life to
see if any aspect is out of balance, for example your relationship or
work life. You may be inspired to heal any disturbances in
relationships, to forgive others, or to bring the peace.
Sometimes doves can mean feminine energy, healing energy, and
maternity. See where this is relevant in your life. If you have
recently lost a loved one, this dove could represent them in spirit
form saying hello or passing on a message of encouragement.
The dove is also a symbol of the holy spirit, or it may represent your
higher self, trying to reach out to communicate. Watch the other signs
around you to determine this. It is a positive sign, the white a strong
sign of innocence around you or perhaps the innocence of children who
can help you to achieve a more childlike state. See which situations in
your life could use a bit of innocence at times, a bit of childlike
wonder or a refreshing of your world view.
Remember that the earth is innocent and so is the nature upon her, no
matter what we, the humans, may try to do. Peace is coming to this
earth no matter what, and often we just need to work through the last
vestiges of trouble before we can welcome in that peace with open arms.
Doves, or white birds in general, can also mean we have passed a
spiritual initiation, and it can indicate enlightenment. You may
have gained knowledge and the universe is simply acknowledging this
with a few doves or, say, cockatoos for example. In this case it is a
wonderful sign and is unlikely that you could step backwards again on
spiritual path. Congratulations.
Dreams Of Doves
A dream of a dove may be an even stronger indication of the above, for
we know that love and peace are on our mind, or are soon to be. A dream
of a dove may also mean we are soon to meet someone who we will engage
in romantically. It can indicate we have peace in our life or we may be
a negotiator who can help others to achieve peace.
It can also be a sign of friendships when in your dreams, or a
your guides or angels. Try to figure out what the dove was doing in
your dream or if it spoke, was this significant? I would take notice of
any dream that contains doves and try to heed the message. It can also
mean blessings and good health. You will probably go through a period
of blissful contentment after this dream.
