A Finch in My Dreams






I had a dream with a finch last night. And so, as I usually do when dreaming with animals, I looked up the symbolic meaning of my mid-night visitor.  I am a believer that animals bring us messages, both in dreams and in our waking hours.

As I read through the lessons and messages that the finch embodies, one thing struck me deeply; the finch derives its color from the food it eats.  The color and the vibrancy are dependent on the source of its nourishment. 

In my dream, my tiny messenger was yellow, and I saw as it was revived from hurried activity by feeding on a piece of peach.  I was moved by the metaphor for how we live our lives, in that we become a product of the nourishment we give ourselves.  We can ask ourselves some questions to see how we are doing:

What am I feeding myself, physically, emotionally, and mentally?

Who is the person that I am creating through the choices I make today?

Are there any changes that I need to make regarding the people, the environments, the habits, words and thoughts that I allow to be part of my life?

I took a tip from my finch friend and had a beautiful salad for lunch.

What will you do today?

    There are changes I’d like to make. Sometimes it’s difficult to know just where to begin. Thanks for the thoughtful post.

      Thank you for your post. I think once one has the heartfelt desire to create a change, the next step is to do something differently to work toward what we’d like to see happen. It doesn’t have to be anything monumental; the Butterfly Effect suggests that one small change can create great effects. Best wishes.
