  • I was laying on my bed thinking about life when suddenly I felt the urge to look randomly out the window directly at the Robin who had been sitting on a wire all alone. I don’t know what caught my attention or why my eyes chose to look in that direction but it gave me hope. For my friend for 4 years decided to let me go after I confessed my love for them. I should have known better since they are already in a relationship but I can’t hold my emotions in because by doing that I’m only punishing myself. This load on my shoulder that was so heavy was now being put on them, because I only thought it seemed fair since they helped contribute to that load by sending me a false sense of hope by flirting with me sexually when we would get drunk together. And now they want to pretend like nothing ever happened, move on and forget the past, which may be easy for them since they never felt a thing for me in the first place. Now they want to call me out as being the desperate one and being the emotionally unstable one when all I ever did wrong was loving them and wanting to be a friend, sometimes more than a friend but I knew I never wanted to break a relationship up. So now my friend is gone, and I’m sitting here starring out the window at this Robin looking down on me. Love is so hard to come by, and then we have to let it go.

  • No fib. I had about 12 Robin’s in my tree yesterday. It was so beautiful and angelic. As we speak, five remain, a day later. We’ve been having some struggles with complacency in life. We’ve also been trying for another sweet baby for quite sometime. I also always associatedassociated robins with my grandmother who passed away almost 5 years ago. What do you think of this phenomenon?

  • A robin flew in front of my car yesterday. I think I killed it. I went out my back door so my son could play in the snow, there was a dead robin next to my door. Not like it had flown into the door, and it was under some water hose, I don’t think a cat left it…It’s got me a little freaked out. The bird symbolizes so much positive, what does it mean to kill one and then to find another dead?

    • Express your self positively to get what you want. Let them know how you feel.

      Was in my quotation box. Eerie. I’ve been struggling with a break up. Is this telling me to move on?

      • Over the last year I was experienced a breakup with a friend – heartbreaking, but something that allowed me to slough off hundreds of old, unnecessary patterns. And the theme? I kept seeing dead birds – on my front stoop, at my workplace, in my path. A major message metaphor for cycles, growth, rebirth, and an end to old ways.

  • A Robin flew into my house. I opened the door to see if it was raining. Never saw her fly in. My son walked into the living room and she spooked and flew across the room. He went over to the front door while I blocked her from flying back the other way. He opened the door and the screen wouldn’t stay open. He went to the other room to get something to chock it open. The screen door didn’t close all the way and the bird flew right out. Thankfully Unharmed.

  • I just had a Robyn fly into my windshield of my car as I was driving. It tumbled and died I’m assuming, I feel so bad. I was planning on leaving the country and going to university for psychiatric nursing. I put my stuff all in storage and I’m being a gypsy until I start school.
    Earlier this week I just found out I’m pregnant and I’m panicking. I’m not prepared, I’m in debt already and I don’t want to be a mother right now. I’ve always wanted to be a mother but not like this and not alone. My loved ones will support me either way but are pro abortions. I don’t fully feel that way. It’s nice to have the options in certain cases, but I don’t know if I could live with myself afterwards. And I know I couldn’t just give it away like it was nothing…

    • Krystal, I too just found out that I am pregnant and although I was unsure of keeping it at first, I have decided to. I have also always wanted to be a mother, but this was unplanned and unexpected for this moment in my life. Outside briefly today, a Robin and I had a moment of silence staring at each other. I knew when it did not fly off that it had come to me with a message. Know that whatever choice you make, it will work out for the best. Weigh your options and do what is best for you. I’m sure If you decide to keep it, it would be the happiest choice you’ve ever made for yourself. I look forward to new beginnings as the Robin has told me to find the joy in it. I hope you do too.

    • Crystal accepting your situation will the gift of compassion you give yourself and baby…Congratulations!!!

  • I had a dream the my dog killed 2 red robins in my home and then a baby piglet was running around the house

  • I need help on this one, as it’s very strange this was a dream of myself and mother working in the garden.

    I noticed a Robin had landed on my mum and was happy to see it close. It then flew over and landed on my arm, however after 30 seconds I was starting to worry as it wouldn’t fly off.

    Then after trying to shew it away I noticed a large stinger (like a bee/wasp) coming out of its tail and it looked like it was getting ready to sting me.. 🙁

    Trying to brush it off my arm and it still wouldn’t leave and clung on whatever I did….any ideas what this dream could mean??

    • Hi mike

      Can I ask you something , how’s your relation with mom ? Is there somthing in the way right now ?

  • I was just having a moment of crushing frustration with myself; I’ve been stressed about my husband finding a new job and moving my family to a new state and I think that stress has made my brain fuzzy. Anyway, I just missed a dentist appointment (for the second time) and my dog was out of her fence barking at a neighbor. I was frantically looking around for nails to fix the fence where she escaped and I looked out my kitchen window to see 50-100 robins rooting for bugs in my front yard. It caught my breath because I’ve never noticed them do this before (I’ve lived in this house for 4 years). With upcoming change in my life I find this a powerful symbol. I’m thankful for these robins and their message to walk forward with patience and compassion.

  • Dreamed of robins last night by the base of a tree outside my window. There was a group of 3 or 4, and one bird that looked similar but with different coloring. In the dream i was running to get a bird book or something to try to identify them…or maybe q camera. When i came back, they were gone.

  • A bird stood in front of my car as I was leaving the parking lot at work. He never moved no matter How close I got with my car. I had to back the car and left from another exit.

    what does this mean

    • Hi Jeanna

      I’m going to assume this bird was a Robyn, seeing were under that category, such a experience stands for a time of growth upcoming and new beginnings, also this new time may require some self sacrifice in order to get things moving along ..
      This is the time to strive towards things you may have been putting off in the past and finally make that move to allow things to happen
      Best wishes

  • Hey,I’ve been seeing all kinds of birds for 2weeks now from three white doves visting me for three days,to the black robin with a red chest visiting me twice daily for a whole week now till they came two of them and I have not spotted them again,to three blue yellow chested chirping so loud at a tree outside my house yellow birds with dark streaky feathers with black red orange beaks flying in front of me playing with me to follow them round my grandpas garden its really spooking me still trying to meditate on them one by one.

    • I had a robin visit me after a relationship ended. He or another robin continued to visit me after I moved to London alone and into a flat. He didn’t stay long but I’d soon met someone, had loads of fun, got pregnant and moved back to my previous town and house to have our baby. No robin until today nearly 5 years later. And today my boyfriend and father of child admitted our relationship was over.

      I feel it’s a sign.

      • Robin is my favorite bird. Like the daffodil, they survive the harshest weather. In spite of trials, they remain beautiful, steadfast on their heralding message of hope and peace. Consider your Robin to be sent directly from GOD to you, reminding you to be of good cheer, for He careth for you and yours.

  • A robbin flew into my work place I work in a beauty day spa. I saw it walking in like a customer just looking around and hopping and flying casually around lol I was telling it to go outside then it started following me. And I showed it the way out the back door it was scared but brave and so cute the way it looks at you was like a friend. 🙂 🙂

    • Hi Louisa! What a coincidence, yesterday a Robin flew in to my office, I work in a music conservatory… he stayed for a long time, obviously he was trying to leave!
      Best wishes,

  • I’ve always liked robins such a lovely little bird there’s one who’s alway in my back garden when I go out there sits on the fence and looks et me its mad but every time I go out I c them just get that feeling he’s following me

  • I saw a robin in the neighbours tree today, Christmas, and it is snowing! It was amazing. I live in Utah.

  • Hi I seen red breast robin I have been trying to decide on a move buying new house cause the one I’m leaving is my mams which have pass so it’s got me thinking shall I stay or move

    • Hi Julie

      It’s time to move ,, the Robyn stands for new beginnings and growth ,, I don’t think there would be a better sign to take the shot and make it happen. It also stands for self sacrifice so when the time comes don’t be afraid to give a little to get what you want ,, but don’t take less then 160000 lol

  • I had my front door open. A robin flew into my house. It perched on just about everything it landed on. I had a hard time getting this singing little bird back outside. Once I did get it back outside it landed on a window ledge outside & kept tapping on the window with his beak as if he was asking to come back inside. Not safe for him as I have 2 dogs & a cat. I would like to know what this means, what the significance of this is. If any one knows. Please let me know.

    • Don’t want to spook u but if a bird f lys in your house it’s a bad sigh don’t know about a robin

      • This is only one interpretation Joe. There are many symbolic meanings for a bird flying into a house. The health and appearance of both the bird And the house come into it, as well as what a person needs an answer for…

        There is no such thing as a “bad sign” in spirit, all symbols take the meaning we give to it.

  • I’ve started working at a zoo recently and I first noticed a Robin following me around and enclosure on my second day. That was 3 weeks ago and I’ve seen him every day since. The day before last he was following me so closely that he was behind my heel on my foot, and came up to me when I knelt on the floor. I saw him again this morning trying to see what was going on, I hope he brings me luck.

    • I believe he has brought you luck. Just the fact that such a special mystical creature has been communicating with you is a pure divine blessing and a symbol of the Universes love for YOU. 🙏🏽😍

  • It is the middle of October in Wyoming. The last 3 mornings when I have gotten my car out of the garage a Robin has been sitting by the tree that is close to the driveway. It does not move just sits there. For 2 mornings there has been a Robin. On the 3rd morning there were 2 of them sitting out there. It is very strange to see Robin’s this time of year. Mostly you will see them in the spring.

  • I have dreams about robin flights to my face like is going inside my body and after I wake up going back to sleep and the same dream start again. Dream is not frightening but strange. Please if anyone knows what mean that dream. Thanks

  • As I was working in the back garden today, a robin never left my side. It followed me all the way round. I stopped many times to speak to it, & it came really close to me, sitting chirping away quietly on the fence, then down inches away from me. For some strange reason, I felt a real bond with the little guy. I took bread out of the freezer, & made him some toast ha! I wondered if this was some sign of something. It was a lovely experience.

  • Whay a beautiful message for me. Last night we found a baby robin who fell from it’s nest. Mom and dad were so worried and vocal. We put the nestling in a makeshift nest in a box and contacted the wildlife rehab.
    Bc of predators and stress we brought the baby inside and put him in a dark quiet spot in my room.
    This morning a whole slew of birds came to see tje baby..**a baby bird shower ?hubby and I used a dry planter to fix to the tree, placed the baby in it and hung it high enough. 10 minutes later the parents flew in to feed it. YAY
    The parents came to me to thank me with a nod and a beak full of food and flew in to feed the baby.
    Grateful for the thx and happy it survived.

  • Every since I’ve been writing letters to my angels, I’ve noticed 3 robins flying around me chirping and messing with my dogs(1 red and 2 brown). Are they my angel’s representatives? Are they my totems? How do I acknowledge them?

    • Hello Dena,you say you write letters to Angels. How do you do this please. Iwould love to know. Regards Toni x

    • Hi Dena
      Robyn’s are a sign of new beginnings and growth also self a
      Sacrifice, do you practice meditation at all? Angels are just that and they present as Angels ,, they have no representatives as such in the way I think you are asking but gives signs that your being heard ,, you can get much more communication and clearer answers to the things you are asking if you can open up to meditation. We can’t control our dreams most of the time but we can direct a topic in mediation.. All that you have just asked can be answered through meditation, you spirit guides ,angles and much more will come through in this higher state..if your just starting with meditation try guided it’s much easier for the beginner..
      Hope this helps .

  • No can tell you quite as accurately as your own intuition and soul what your Robin means.

  • A robin twice this morning came and Sat on my railing with a worm in its mouth
    What does this mean?

  • My daughter is very upset a robin has just flown into her patio door and killed itself what does this mean please

    • Sorry to hear that. It helps to put colorful stickers on glass so birds don’t fly into them. The Robin probably thought she could just fly on through. An unfortunate accident.

  • What does it mean if a robin sat on the windshield of my car and road on my car all the way to work with me flew away as soon as I got to work?

    • Due to the force exerted onto the windshield by the air as you drove, the robin would have been held in place and physically unable to move until you stopped.

  • When ever I am in my garden, a Robin will always land on the grass and stare at me, as well, every place I have lived, Robins have always made their nest in my garden. I also had a dream that I was speaking to a Robin and it was speaking back to me. I see them alot, and have even helped to bring back a lost baby Robin to its mother. I am wondering if it is my spirit animal?

    • Today, all day Robins have been in my backyard. When I go out some will fly away but at leat one will stay. I’ve counted up to 15 at one time. I couldn’t help but think this was of some importance. Does this mEan anything?

  • recently my nan died. her husband died a while ago but at her house she always had a robin. he used to come inside at times. now that she has died i now have a robin at my house. but just today i had 2. i knew who they were. it was them. they were making sue im still okay, checking up on me. the birds stayed for a while singing and churping away making the day a better place! :mrgreen:

  • I have seen the most beautiful dark purple robin in my back yard for the past 3 years. I only saw him once the first year, a few times last year, and this spring he seems to be around every time I am outside. He even flew in front of the big picture window upstairs while I was looking out. He turned mid flight to look at me. I had been thinking that all young robins must be dark purple, but couldn’t find anything to support this. I just feel so drawn to him. While searching for “purple robins” I stumbled onto this page, and the synchronicity of the purple highlights of text and corresponding resonance with the message could not be more clear. Thank you for this informative article. How wonderful and magical life is!

    • I had a vision of a robin in a dream. He was standing tall and proud. As he shook his feathers and tail, he shook out branches, as extensions to his wings and tail, full of lovely small leaves. Wonder of wonders, the first band of leaves was red, the outer band was yellow leaves. Each leaf was a small oval/heart shape.T his dream appeared on June 20. The timing I know is significant. I welcome others interpretations.

      • Red and yellow are the first two chakras, and robins symbolise new beginnings… I feel this could be a message about shedding leaves, to bring in the new… to let go of the old so you can reveal who you truly are in the now … to reveal your passions…

        Red the colour of blood, life force and yellow the colour of abundance and sun… happiness, sounds like you are ready for a higher version you to now be fully embodied…. go Goddess 😀 xx

  • Hi Everyone, Today morning my husband, son (two year old who snicked in our bed) and i were sleeping and out of nowhere a Robin flew right through our bedroom door! we live in a basement so we gave no windows and our door was locked. it was such a nice experience because we all running around trying to catch it to set it free. our son loves pokemon so he kept on calling it a pokemon lol i do believe it was meant to be because my husband and i had gotten into a bad argument last night,
    im also scared because everywhere i read it says birds inside homes mean death??? anyone find that to` be truth? ❓

  • I have a robin that has been visiting for the last 2 weeks. It pecks at every window all the way around the house all day long.

  • Can anyone tell me what it symbolizes when a WHITE robin comes into your life? There is one living near my home that I see almost every day now.

  • I’ve had a few experiences with birds, in one home I had a woodpecker make a hole in the bedroom window and one night flew in the house . I picked him up with bare hands and.let.him go outside. My husband was shocked due to their beaks and talons, but he was extremely calm. This happened in two home in Utah and one in Wyo. Now for two weeks I have had a Robin tap on the kitchen window and the bathroom window in my bedroom. I can walk up to the window and tap the glass and it will stay for awhile before flying off. It does this all day now and I don’t know what it needs or wamts. Any ideas?

    • You could put a little food on the sill, it might be asking you for some? I’ve been putting out oats and the Robbins love them. Worth a try. Lovely to be able to get so close to them, enjoy!

    • I had a Robin fly into my window………Saw its reflection……….I put different things on the window ………Now I don’t worry about the Robin breaking its neck………good luck

    • When my beds (all sorts) peck on my window they want me to put out bread crumbs. That’s every morning between 7 and 8.

  • 😕 Hello……..Not sure where i begin ……But i consider myself more spiritual then religious !!! Though i do believe in God, and believe there is only one. I have had different signs in what i believe are my “Guardian Angels”…………The first time which is now quite a few years ago is when i found my next door neighbor dead. Yes of course i seen dead people in their coffins many times in my life…….But have never seen actual death with the eyes open. it had impacted me so much, i could not sleep for weeks and anything i heard dropping on a table would startle me and i felt as if my heart was in my mouth and racing uncontrollably. Now my doctor gave me a medication to help me relax and help with sleep. To no avail it did not help. I remember praying and asking God to close my eyes to sleep. Bent down one morning and as i stood there were the most beautiful twinkling bright white lights all around me………Front, back, sides 🙂 I just recall an inner voice saying …….Close your eyes Terry and Sleep, do no touch what you have seen ………I’am real and just believe !!! Wow, Wow, Wow………….I did close my eyes and finally slept that day.. Now i had never wrote poetry in my life, but i felt i needed to write about my experience…….Many Angel poems followed after that :)……I had the same bright lights throughout the years……protecting me when my boyfriend went to crap my throat……….The lights appeared all around me and he slipped and fell……..letting me escape without harm. Now it is the year “2016” Have not seen my twinkling white light beautiful angels for almost a year now though 🙁 But just this past November 2015………I have been visited by this most beautiful robin ……..For some reason he seems to know me ………and for some reason i seem to know him as well. At first i thought nothing of it………Actually my mother noticed him first…….She said Terry there is a robin just sitting on our wall…….for hours as if he is waiting for someone. Once i finally seen him…….I call him a he………and call him ” Soldier Boy”……….He seems to love me for some reason, my belief is God sent me my ”
    Guardian Angel” in a different form this time 🙂 He comes when i call him, and always appears in the most mysterious ways. I sit in patio chair since the climate has been so unseasonable warm in Pittsburgh this Winter. And have found myself so much more in tuned to the the sounds and beauty all around me…….since my “Soldier Boy (Robin)” appeared. He leaves me his underbelly white feathers……….I noticed the first a couple weeks ago, just jumped at me and i knew it was his so i picked it up and saved it……Now just yesterday 3/2/2016, walked out my door and noticed another feather at exactly the same place i found the first……Yes i knew it was from him 🙂 He is not afraid of my feral cats we take care of, so it seems…….Actually he swoops down to eat in close proximity to my cats and they seem as if they do not see him. Well i could go on and on and tell you so much more because ”
    Soldier Boy” shows me signs almost everyday that he is not just a bird but is a angel !!!!

    • The light protects you from harm, by guiding you to safety when you need it, each and every time you do. The robin teaches you to become aware of what is around you, that you have love around you that is a part of your life, is always there. Soldier Boy doesn’t work alone, that love will take any form, so that no matter where you are in the world, it will always remain a part of your life and is there for you every second of it.
      Answers to prayers, take form in a way that can be understood and in a voice that speaks to you.

  • A bird (robin) jus flew my kitchen windowi freaked out and shut myself in my corridor i went to my neighbour and she helped me it flew around my front room than we opend all windows and flew out i really dont know what that means. Also i phoned my aunti as she is spiritual and she said oh no thats not good…??? a week ago a robin say on fence outside my front room window x :???

  • I haven’t thought much about robins until today. As I sat in my office at work, I heard a rather loud thud; a bird flew into the glass window and was siting outside the window stunned. I was afraid that the poor little guy was going to try to take off while disoriented and smack into the window again. I grabbed a couple paper towels and headed outside. I approached slowly and saw he was moving a little. I reached over with the paper towels and gently moved him on to the sidewalk. He just stood there. I reached down without the towels and started to pet him. He fluttered a little as I placed my hand under him, and he stepped on flapping his wings once. Then he settled in and just sat on my hand. I stroked him with my other hand, talked to him softly, sent him healing energy, and then took his photo. I then gently set him in some grass, further away from the window to make doubly sure he would have a clear path to take off. When I went out a little later, he was gone. I only found out after getting home that the bird I helped was a male robin. What a sweet little guy he was. I’m so glad I came across this site to read about his symbolism.

  • I’ve had the same wee robin visit my garden since spring, I’ve heard that spirits use robins , this morning l was in my garden shed, it was raining quite heavey so l sat in the shed till it lightened up, l saw the little robin sit in a nearby tree looking at me, l asked it who are you, l then asked it if you are my dad fly on to the grass or go to another tree, show me a sign, l couldn’t believed it, the robin flew onto the grass and tree that l had in my minds eye, the thing is it was raining and the tree he went to had no cover,he sat there looking at me puffing his chest then went back to tree with cover, what are the chances of that actually happening, l believe now.??

  • I had left back door open this morning when i went back upstairs with cup of tea. Whilst sat on bed a robin flew in bedroom door and landed on my head. He then flew onto window sill. I opened window for him and moved the blinds. He then after a couple of circuits of the room flew onto wardrobe had a good look around for a while before then flying out of the window. He did not seem scared.

    I have heard that a Robin in the house means death????

  • I have had a lot of family personal heartache over the last two & a half years which reached a pinnacle a month ago, this left me in such a depressed state that I couldn’t get out of the black hole I was in, I had no answer to the “Why” going round in my head, persecuting myself for the situation I was in and feeling that life was just not worth living any more, whilst sitting in my garden with all these thoughts a baby Robin came and sat at my feet then moved to the arm of my chair – just staring right at me which seemed for absolute ages. I moved out of my chair and he stayed put – it was so unreal, as if he was trying to tell me something. Over the days he came closer and closer to my back door then last week I found him in my kitchen sitting on the mat at my back door, I decided to try and feed him by hand inside my kitchen….a few days later he was feeding not only out of my hand but whilst sitting in the palm of my hand, he is my first visitor every morning and my last every night, whenever I’m in the garden he is by my side – only disappearing for half an hour then he’s back again – he is truly my little guardian angel – my reason for living and believing in myself.

  • Last week I had to make the difficult decision to hospitalized my sick aunt who’s name is coincidentally robin. She had lung cancer and was really suffering at home. I decided to call 911 and get her the help she needed as I’m not sure she was thinking clearly and able to help herself. Immediately after I hung up the phone, I went to my back kitchen window and just stood their contemplating what I had done. Did I make the right decision, would my aunt be angry with me for placing her In the hospital to die. As these thoughts were bouncing through my head the most beautiful red robin landed in my yard, and I swear stared at me through the window. I felt like it was a sign from either my aunt or the Lord himself that everything was ok. That I had chosen the right path. That was wednesday, my aunt Robin died Saturday in the hospital, surrounded by those that loved her the most, and most importantly in comfort. I feel the robin was a sign, of changes to come, of tough decisions, of the end of one journey and the start of another. Forevermore, when I see a robin, I will think and cherish the memories of my aunt Robin. Thank you magical bird and who ever sent you to my back yard when I needed you most.

  • My dear father passed away yesterday. When his father, my grandfather, passed away he told me he had been visited by a Robin a few days afterward. He had been gardening and turned around to see a Robin sitting on the handle of his spade. It stayed a while and my father was convinced that it was a sign that my grandfather was watching over him and telling him he loved him.
    Today, I don’t know whether it was guidance , but I feel sure it was, I visited the church where my Mum and Dad were married, and I baptised.
    I sat in a wonderful little garden at the rear of the church “the garden of Hope” just thinking about my Dad.
    As I sat on the bench in the garden, I was suddenly aware of something to my left.
    I turned to see a beautiful little Robin on the arm of the bench! A feeling of absolute awe came over me, even when I moved closer, to within a foot of him…he didn’t flinch! I too am convinced that this was sent by my Dad to give me the same message…. I’m watching and protecting and love you son!
    I had my camera with me and I got within 6 inches to take a beautiful picture of him.
    Even the sound if the camera shutter did not alarm him!
    Only when I said “I love you too Dad” did he depart!

  • I was in the back yard about to plant tomatoes when a robin flew up to me and hovered in the air a few feet in front of my face looking directly at me. It felt like 5 seconds or so, but time kind of stood still so I can’t be sure. It was crazy!! It was soo close to me too, much closer than birds usually get to humans.

    I just kindof stood there in awe and watched him flit around a bit before he disappeared. It was very enchanting and felt somehow important. It made me feel strong happiness.

    • Hi Tei, My Mother loved Robins,she was an avid gardener and when her Dad passed she told me every time she picked up a spade a Robin would land on it.Recently Ive been going through some great loss and financial burdens, I was on my way home last week and saw a little one and I swear the fella was flying along with me…my Mam passed ten years ago and I have always been looking for a sign she is with me. Now I think about the times Ive seen the little guys, including my back garden and know shes telling me everythings going to be ok. I have no idea why I googled Robins tonight, maybe I do now.

  • Today I was making wedding stuff, and I happened to look into my kitchen an there was sitting a robin who had flown into my house, our wedding theme is Cinderella my daughters fav films and she passed away 2 years ago aged 4. Like to think it was her, as I was making the things I was thinking of her. And new I hope it dose mean new begnings as we’ve been trying to get pregnant and can’t.

    • Be sure to have let go of the pain from your great loss. Grief has many angles and sometimes is not completed leaving a block in your system. If you are not successful in pregnancy, grief is a good area to look at for answer. Love and enlightenment to you. Claudia x

  • A robin visited my garden daily since spring, my mother used to say they were spirits and sometimes a sign of a death. This robin made friends with my dog titchy. The robin even visited his kennel daily .last week titchy died ofa rat bite. My hear is broken and the robin has gone what can this mean 😥

  • I was kneeling down sanding our front door and a robin appears 2 feet in front of me turning its head side to side and we were looking at each other for about 2minutes which was mind blowing and wherever i go i always seeing a robin so close to me as in 6feet away . I always though its my dad looking out for me as its been 3&1/2 since he died as its been happening since he went

  • Hello,..
    I enjoyed reading this as I have been dealing with some serious struggles in my life for the past few months.
    This morning I was again greeted at my back porch window by two robins peeking around and singing
    also sometimes in the bedroom window I see them up in the tree. A year ago the most beloved dog I had
    for 12 yrs who shared a deep connection to me more than any other pet in my life suddenly became very
    ill and was in the final stages of his disease, I could not watch him suffer in pain anymore and had to make
    the heart wrenching decision to let the vet assist with his passing. The morning of his passing he was outside
    near the horse stables under the big blue sky in all of nature while laying on my lap near the edge of the
    woods. We stayed there very quietly together for a long time before the vet arrived. He was in tremendous
    pain but was enjoying all the sounds of nature around us. I had noticed a robin up in the pines nestled and
    watching us the entire time. I sensed it knew of something going on with my dog. The robin stayed there the
    entire time and was a comfort to me while my dog fell asleep in my lap and held him close to my heart for
    the longest time. After my boy had passed, through all my tears and deep sorrow the robin began to chirp
    there was no one else around but me and the robin, it was as if the robin was there for that very reason
    to remind me of life eternal and that even as animals the importance of the soul and the spirit are so
    intertwined with ours. Some people would say that you can read too much in to these things, but I know
    throughout my lifetime, the spirit of animals has always shown me far more through their natural instincts
    simply by observation of them and listening to what they too are speaking. As painful as that moment was
    for me in relinquishing my great love in to the universe I found peace and comfort in the presence of that
    robin nestled in the pines.

  • After all of this snow and cold air… I was surprised to hear birds singing this morning!!! I looked out of my window and there were hundreds of robins flocking in all of the nearby trees. I researched to see if it was normal for them to be in my area (Hampton Roads) at this time of year and I found they signal the end of winter is coming! I read no further and put out some bird seed!!! Lol
    I don’t believe in coincidences, so I accept everything said here and then some!!! 100 fold!!! To The Eternal One be all the glory!!!

  • I had a dream that my husband and I were looking at buying a new house our family (siblings, in-laws, children) were there and we were walking through it. We went outside to look at a large brown barn and I looked over my right shoulder and saw a robin flying along side me. The grass was so green and the robin was so beautiful I couldn’t believe it. I thought to myself I must be dreaming and pinched myself at which point I realized I was dreaming. I was sad I wanted it to be real. I begged and pleaded in my dream to stay there. When I awoke I felt it was strange that this was so emotionally charged, my husband and I built a house several years ago not looking to buy or sell, but I did get laid off a few weeks later. I’m not sure if that was the new beginning? I thought of new beginnings as more positive than losing your job. Looking for some different perspectives.

  • hi i just wondered if there maybe a meaning to this but for the past week or so there has been a robin sitting on my balcony looking in for about 5 mins then eats the food and flies off it returns several times a day.. could this mean anything??

  • For a long while I have been trying to find what exactly my spirit animal is and nobody can tell you, it is what you encounter whether in a dream state or in daily life and what you feel an attachment to. Everyday I have at least two Robin’s in my path and a swarm of them around my home. It seemed easy to explain the ones that continue to stay around my residence, but not the ones that are right there no matter where I am that literally seem to follow me as I walk on a daily basis. Finally I decided to look them up, they fit my personality perfectly and I like I kind of referred to I tried to move towards an animal that other sources described me as but you find out what it is on your own.

  • I have been struggling with my finances and had to move myself, my husband and our three kids into my mom’s home temporarily. It has been challenging, frustrating and painful for me to face the truth of the relationship with my parents, and realize the effect it has had on me throughout my life. I have taken this opportunity to do the hard work of spiritual growth, and months later, I can now see how far I have come. For the last two weeks or so, when I go out on the porch to smoke, a robin comes out of the nearby bush and talks to me. At first I was not sure if it was deliberate or a defensive gesture, but now every day she comes out of her bush and hops to the outside step where I can see her. She turns her head this way and that and makes chirping noises. She will remain in sight until I get up to leave and then she retreats to her bush. Today I came out and she came flying in from wherever she had been outside of this area, and proceeded to do the same routine of finding a close vantage point , looking and chirping to me. When I arose to leave, she flew away to wherever she had come from. I’ve been wondering why she came into my life and what it means. Reading this makes sense and rings true to where I am in my life. When I first moved in I was visited repeatedly by deer, which signifies my needing to be forgiving and gentle with myself and others during that time of heavy conflict and sadness. Now I am visited by the robin during a time where I feel renewed strength and excitement for the future I am creating, and the inner changes that have occurred that have put me in a very different space within compared to where I began a few months back. Thank you for the validation and messages of truth.

  • Reading this has hit a chord with me on so many levels. I have suffered with depression for years and i know i am in the process of change. The one thing i am confident with in my life is my voice and i often sing in public. So reading about the musicality and connecting to others through song really did hit a chord!

  • i have a Robin which has only started recently visiting our house. on one ocassion my husband left the back door open and it flew into the house. when i am out for walks its often follows me. I think Robins are beautiful birds, this bird seems very kind and looks like it looks right through my soul trying to tell me something. I Hope there is a good meaning to this bird visiting our home.

  • Amazing to read this as I was out for a walk today and must have seen 30 robins. All flying in front of me and my partner and our baby and trying to get our attention and we were discussing about big decisions in our lives and I am having to let go of many plans I was making and although I feel sad I also feel like things are freeing up and feel great relief. so nice to hear all the positive things a robin symbolizes for such changes in one’s life. thank you little robins. xxxx

  • I saw the most beautiful Robin with the brightest red breast land on my back garden gate the morning that Robin Williams passed. Robins seem to be following me everywhere and yesterday what looked like a pregnant female was in my front garden when I came home. I took out a little bowl of water for her and some nuts.

  • This is so inspiring for me. The past few nights, I have been having crazy nightmares of being chased etc. But last night, I had the most wonderful dream of looking into the Galaxy and being able to see all the stars and watch as the planets moved around the Solar System and around Earth.
    The next beautiful part of the dream was when I had a baby Robin land on my hand and eat his breakfast. He was very young and didn’t look like he should be out of the nest so I took him home and fed him cat food from a straw to give him protein. He got stronger and stronger and then I woke up!
    My own personal goals are to one day work in Wildlife Conservation. I have had many dreams of animals, in particular birds. But this dream I take as a true sign.
    Thank You

  • hello.i just want to share this with you.i have this robin that has flown in my house 3 days in a row.also i have a video that a robin also been in the caravan up the yard twice now.i do believe in angels.may be its a sign for me.wish i new what it was.!!

  • It started in winter when the Cape Robin is rare.
    For a week every morning, a robin flew into my office, circled and flew out.
    Whenever I sit in the garden and read Joel Goldsmith a robin lands on these logs nearby,
    hops off and hops towards me and when really close looks at me , swoops upwards and flies so close
    i could touch it.

  • My wide just called me from Devon, where she is having a weekend with my mother-in-law, who believes that Robins are a sign of a departed loved one. They had just walked back from the spot where my father-in-law’s ashes are scattered and a Robin flew into the porch and sat on the shoe rack where all the walking boots are stored. They got some comfort from this belief and whatever the truth, that’s all that really counts.

  • We went through a tragic incident this morning, our beloved dog had to be put to sleep. When Rob and I were cleaning the flat after, a Robin came and sat in the tree outside out kitchen window for ages, we were looking at him. I think that was a sign he is okay and we did the best thing for him xxx

  • 😀 this made perfect sense & resonated so deeply…Thank you for this wonderful resource!

  • Thank you for this information on the robin. 16 days ago, (on July 30th), I went out on my front porch to talk to my dog, Rosy. Suddenly, robins started gathering near the side of the porch. More and more of them, in the trees, on the ground, in bushes. Something holy was happening. It had to mean something. They were all sweet and seemed to be telling me something. I never saw so many robins in one place in my life.
