Spiritual Meaning Of Heron
heron can be quite zen like when it wants, standing on one leg
perfectly still, just watching and balancing as though it were
meditating, for maybe it is. They can symbolize balance when seen like
this, and bringing more balance
effortlessly into your life.
Herons are known for their patience waiting to catch
a fish in water. What chance does the fish have with this kind of
present determination to be in the moment and wait? They are also very
birds, so any encounter with a heron could be a hint that you may be
needing quiet determination and patience in your life to come by you
Herons tend to be solitary creatures most of the time, happy to keep
their own council. Unlike many other birds, they don't need the
company of family, or crowds of like birds around them, and are not
social birds except maybe during mating season. Perhaps this message is
about spending alone time to clear your mind or reach a decision
about something. You may need to say no to other and settle with your
own company for a weekend.
Herons and egrets enjoy lowland areas, rivers, lakes, ponds and swamps
and egrets are the smaller birds. They come in many different colours
such as white, black, gray, brown sometimes with yellow. There are some
small egrets around where I live and they seem to be adapting somewhat
to suburban life.
In Australia, the egret is often found around dumpsters or bins looking
food, showing how resourceful they are. They've been called the
'dumpster chickens' and are often seen as pests. But
other than this habit, they
are water birds who are equally comfortable in both water or land, and
of course air.
Their calls are loud, whether at night or during the day. Often, I hear
egrets on my roof calling out to each other in short,
angry calls right above my head. I feel they're telling me someone is
angry at me, right when someone is. At night, their loud, clear calls
can wake one from
sleep. Do you need to communicate with someone? Herons have an
authoritative call so perhaps you need to be clearer or authoritative
in your communication.
Herons have long been honoured in Egypt, China, Africa and by the
Native Americans. Words used to represent the heron include Wisdom,
Authority Shrewdness, and Communication.
In addition, the blue
is seen as a more special bird when it comes to signs, often portrayed
as a good luck sign. Encountering one close by or flying by above you
luck and happiness soon to occur for you.
Blue heron may also symbolise that you
are close to spirit or coming into new spiritual understandings. If you
are spiritual or close to angels, it may be a special sign so listen to
your intuition and see what breakthroughs you may be going through
learning your lessons in life. It's an uplifting symbol you may not
Dreams Of Heron
To dream of a heron may indicate you are not fully involved in some
activity or situation in your life. Just as a heron may represent being
partially in and out of the water simultaneously, so too you may be
shirking a responsibility or unaware of certain aspects of something
which means it is only half done.
Dreaming of a blue heron either flying or resting is indicative of good
luck or good chances for manifesting what you want.
