Dreaming of Birds | What is the meaning of birds in your dream?
Dreaming of birds is actually a common dream and I have written about what this means before. Birds in your dream can symbolise your goals, aspirations and hopes. They can denote a sunny outlook in life.
Dream Symbols A-Z says, “You are experiencing spiritual freedom and psychological liberation. It is almost as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.” This can often be the case when dreaming of birds, but not always.
Today I would like to interpret the dreams of two dreamers who have emailed in for a personal dream reading. If you’d like one, send me an email here.
Jade from the United Kingdom describes her dream
“I was attacked by a load of birds! My partner said he woke up to find me standing by the door. I remember shouting, “Birds!” but nothing else. And he also said I shouted, “Get out!”
The dream symbols she noticed were:
- Flock of birds
- “Get out!”
Dreaming of birds, according to Jade
As I mentioned in an earlier post, to dream of aggressive birds (if they were attacking you, or killing people, in your dream) is a warning to be careful with those around you. Take notice on who you know in your waking life that could remind you of a bird, or who has a name that sounds like a bird’s name – this is the person to watch out for. Dreaming of birds may be symbolic here.
So, Jade, as the birds are attacking you, I would maybe consider that. Let me know if this rings any bells with you. Something that is interesting is that you seem to be guarding the door, acting as a gatekeeper, almost.
This also indicates that you need to be careful of who you are letting into your life. Dream Symbols says, “To dream that you are a gatekeeper indicates that you need to be more careful about who you let into your life.”
My second dreamer is named Lenora, who is also dreaming of birds
“In my dream I saw a colourful bird that I called by its name, and it came to me. I touched it and went into another place in my dream. Then I saw more birds, including some that looked like a mother and her babies. She was protecting her three young but two of them were barely moving.”
The dream symbols she noticed were:
- Mother and baby birds
- Bird comes when name is called
As we have discovered, dreaming of birds is about your spirituality inside. They are a representation of your goals and highs. In this case, Lenora, you knew the bird’s name, and when you called it, it came to you. This is very interesting, because to hear your name being called in your dream indicates that you are in touch and in tune with your spirituality.
However, there could be a deeper meaning to the dream with the mother and baby birds. The mother has three babies, but two of them are not doing well. What areas of your life are you not nurturing or supporting?
Your dream is telling you that out of your three big goals and lofty aspirations, two of them are not doing that well. They are barely moving – I think this dream says that if you want your goals to come to fruition, you need to nurture them like a mother nurtures a child, protect them until they gain the strength to fly on their own.
Does any of this make sense?
What is the meaning of protection in a dream?
According to my favourite dream website, “To dream that you are being protected or need protection indicates that you are feeling helpless in some situation. Life’s difficulties have made you dependable on others. You need to start taking charge of the situation.”
So, Lenora, I think this dream is quite clear. You know what your goals are, you’ve named them. There are three big goals that you want to achieve, high goals, lofty goals. But two out of three of these goals are being neglected, so you need to take charge of the situation and nurture and protect yourself more.
Can you really interpret my dreams for me?
Only you can truly interpret your dreams. But there are some symbols which are common to us all, which someone other than the dreamer can advise on. If you have trouble remembering your dreams. Check out my article How to remember your dreams: in 7 foolproof steps.
