What does dreaming of Birds mean? What do Birds symbolize in dreams?
As far back as pagan times, man has been fascinated by birds and by flight. Birds were believed to be vehicles for the soul and to have the ability to carry the soul to heaven. As a result, birds were very often invested with magical and mystical powers. Birds have come to represent the soul – both its dark and its enlightened side.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Psychologically, man often needs to project human qualities onto objects outside himself, and because birds’ conduct is entirely instinctive, they can be used in dreams to understand man’s behaviour.
Birds in dreams usually represent freedom, imagination, thoughts and ideas which, by their nature, need freedom to be able to become evident. Dreaming of them in particular scenarios has the following meanings: a caged bird can indicate restraint or entrapment.
A bird flying freely represents aspirations and desires and possibly the spirit soaring towards the divine.
A display of plumage indicates our facade – the way we see ourselves and how we present ourselves to the outside world.
A flock of birds containing both winged and plucked birds indicates confusion over bodily or material considerations, as opposed to spiritual aspirations. Birds can sometimes denote the feminine, free side of the being.
The golden-winged bird has the same significance as fire and, therefore, indicates spiritual aspirations.
A high-flying bird indicates spiritual awareness or that part in us that seeks knowledge.
Gives gender - specific: In a man’s dream, a bird can represent the anima. In a woman’s dream, it suggests the self, in the sense of the spiritual self.
