Dove as animal ally

Posted on May 23, 2015 at 11:55 PM

Associated with many goddesses, (most notably the Greek goddess Aphrodite), it is considered the embodiment of the maternal instinct. When the dove appears it is signaling a time to go within and to release emotional discord. It assists in releasing the memories of past trauma. The dove bestows healing on all levels so that when inner turmoil is released the possibility of peace and prosperity awaits. A spirit messenger bringing communication between the realms of the conscious and the unconscious.

 

Brown Dove -- Represents a subconscious thought that is less than clear. Somewhere between awareness and ignorance, leaning to the side of being unaware. Give attention to being clearer about what is needed.

 

Laughing Dove -- Sacred to the goddess Venus, the Queen of Laughter. There is a joke hidden somewhere in this situation.

Mourning Dove/-- Represents Spirit and communication with Spirit through all other creatures. When the mourning dove appears there will be messages and opportunities for growth. (Commonly thought of as a potential symbol of a coming death, but only if it is seen/under extremely unusual circumstances.)

Turtle Dove (Palm Dove) -- The two turtledoves in Holy Scripture and in literature presents a picture of devotion and covenant loving kindness. It is a sublime vision of earthly love and friendship. Two is the number of witness. One person is standing up on behalf of his friend, his companion.

White Dove -- Universal symbol of peace and hope for the future
