Easy does it! Stop trying so hard to control everything and all the doors will open for you.

If Dove has flown into your life;

She may be reminding you that in order to soar, you must know when to move your wings and when to allow the wind to take you to new heights. If you were to sit on a branch looking to the sky and hoping the wind will simply pick you up, you would never move. You must surrender and allow the wind support your wings. Get moving… and experience the exhilaration of flying higher and higher.

Alternatively Dove could be letting you know that you need to simply stop and take a few deep breaths. Let go of the turmoil that is currently surrounding you and find peace within you. Know that what you see right now is reality shifting in ways you never thought possible and that what you are truly looking for is just around the corner. The most chaos happens just before your dreams come true.

You sometimes have difficulty with others as the tend to take advantage of your pacifistic ways and the calm and serenity that is natural to your being. You are a natural nurturer and make an excellent parent.

If Dove has flown into your Dreams;

In particular, to see a white dove in your dream represents loyalty, love, simplicity, gentleness and friendships. It may also signify a message and blessing from the Holy Spirit. You have let go of your thoughts of hate and revenge.

To dream that doves are mating and building a nest, symbolizes a joyous home life filled with love, tranquility, pleasure and security.

  • My husband and I are having issues. He has been really moody, stressing over money etc and it is putting a strain on us. I have been thinking of leaving him, as him and my son from a previous relationship are always at odds. This morning a dove hovered under my back porch roof while I was sitting there, then I came inside and looked out my front door and there was another one hovering under the porch roof. What if anything does this mean?

  • My boyfriend and I are going through a rough patch, I returned from a trip and I dove was sitting in my bedroom window looking at me. Later that day I went to my bf’s and we talked about our next steps and my need to know myself better before settling down. That morning while talking a dove came to his kitchen window while we hugged and cried. I went home an hour later and was folding clothes in my room and a dove came to my window again, sitting on the ledge and peering in at me. I can’t help but think it’s a sign for me to spread my wings and know things will work out between the two of us.

    I hit a morning dove with my truck on the way to work. It landed up on the lower part of my windshield. It was still alive and it was starring at me while it died. I drove a different way to work because I didn’t want it to fall off onto the highway. I believe this little bird has saved me from some tragedy, like a car accident. God works his magic in mysterious ways and offered one of his beautiful creatures to alter my path at that time. I am saddened that it died, but I am happy that His plan for me goes on.

  • Just this afternoon at around 4pm a white dove with eed colored legs landed on our backyard.It didn’t flew away even if I was sweeping and watering the plants.it walked around sipping water from the spill on the ground.then it juat settled there. I was thinking what message it brings…first time happened that a bird did not flew and was so quiet and calm just beiing around there even if our two dogs are barking.

  • So I live in the mountains and have a super predator of a cat. The cat was asleep on the seating part of the picnic table when a brown dove landed on the table part looked down at the cat. The cat woke looked at me and laid her head down (like it’s not here for me) and went back to sleep. It looked at me for a minute and left. Huh? Besides my cat not making a simple lunch of the dove that was very surreal. Any thoughts

  • I just had two doves fly smack into my living room window. Both died I find it strange that this happened on Easter in the late afternoon. I have lived here 24 years and never had a bird hit this window. Is this a warning? Is it to wake me up? I feel worried and don’t know if I should.

    • You submitted this message at 4:11, i think you should look up the spiritual meaning of this number… Angel numbers

  • I had gray dove with red band on its leg walking around my driveway, it was bleeding and I felt sorry for it didn’t no what to do for it. Does wild live preserve put red bands on them?

  • A morning dove landed on my windshield thus morning, beautiful thoughts she sent to me…

  • I have TEN mourning doves sitting on a tree outside my bedroom window! They were feeding on my patio. I’ve never encountered that many together! Any thoughts?

  • I had a rough year and was thinking about getting a divorce. My husband and me were going to a counsellor, but it didn’t bring me the help and clarity I needed. When I walked with my husband a dove flew over our heads and touched my cheek and head with its wing. I feel blessed. I need signs in my life like that, natures guiding me.

    • Mourning doves, aka turtle doves, usually mate for life. Only you can take away this gentle message, so perhaps it is just offering a gentle message of love and that you will find peace and love whatever you do.

  • How do I know what my spirit Totem Animal is >?

    • I was driving to work when three gray doves in flight together flew in front of my car. Any significance of this? Also in this same day with the doves, I saw 4 hawks fly on my way to a town 60 miles away from where I live. Each hawk flew alone. I have also had a red cardinal appear to me numerous times in the past 6 yrs. Sometimes it allows me to get quite close to it. I had an old boyfriend from high school who I loved dearly pass away 10 yrs ago. I have often thought it was him. Could this be?

  • Today I had to let go of my dear greyhound, Baby Girl. For days I had been observing a woodpecker in a neighboring tree who caught my attention again today. As I walked over towards the tree to get a closer look he then flew back to a tree nearest to the house. This tree had several doves, each expanding their wings at different times, flying from branch to branch. I did a 360 to view all other treetops in the skyline, none had birds in them. I knew right then it was my baby girl sending me that beautiful display……she knew me that well. It is better to have loved and lost, then never to have loved at all. Tennyson. No more pain, no more tears.

    • Hi Elsie

      I gather the Grey Dove would mean something about the Light not being able to exist without the Dark.

      The Dark craves the light as the Light craves the Dark. Without each other Life would not exist.

      So next time someonr bullies you, be the white Dove to their darkness – smile in their faces, knowing that you are their oxygen and they are nothing without you.

  • Hi everyone can anyone tell me what a gray pigeon/dove means?

  • Hi, so this afternoon is a very stormy and rainy one, I’m driving home from work and I see a row of black birds with a pure white dove sitting in the center of them all on a power line, I’m not sure what this means but it made me feel very happy and it was very beautiful. I even got a photo. Can anyone tell me what this could mean?

  • My fiancé and I were expecting our first baby. We were told at our first scan we were 7 weeks and 5 days. I experienced some bleeding – not much at all – no cramping, no other symptoms. I was referred to the Early Pregnancy Unit a week before our 12 week scan just to check to see if everything was okay. We were told we had miscarried and the baby hadn’t passed and I need to go in to have the baby removed. When we got home from this news, I was in the garden and sitting on top of a nearby house was a grey pigeon and a white one sitting next to one another. I’ve read online this is a sign of peace. I do hope our baby ‘peanut’ is safe and being looked after. It was a message from above. RIP little one 😘⭐️ Xxx

  • This morning as I was going to my mailbox, I saw a white dove walking in and around my driveway. It had a blue leg band. I sent an email to my state wildlife agency. Don’t know if they are the one who banded it.

  • Hi, last week I was watering my front garden, and all of a sudden, out the corner of my left eye I seen something. I looked down, and beside my left foot a dove sitting there. Not afraid at all of me. I thought “oh he is thirsty. He walked over took a drink, came back to my foot, then walked to the other side of the garden, took another drink, came back, and walked over my foot. I couldn’t believe this. Walked up my driveway, went under the truck. Stayed for awhile then walked down the driveway and disappeared. I haven’t seen him since. What does this mean?

  • I was walking and carrying a heavy load, when I stopped to take a breath… a perfectly white dove flew around me. It was so perfectly white that it glowed! I was totally amazed.. Was this a sign from God?



  • Please help me understand what I have going on. This never happens and now in the last 3 days I had 2 dove land on a fence outside my pick up not 6 feet away eye level with me I rolled down my window they didn’t fly. I moved my arms around they didn’t fly. Then the next day a young dove is on the dog fence watching through the kitchen window. An hour later he was still there so I walked outside walked right up to him and picked him up off the fence. Thinking he was hurt or to young to fly I brought him inside and he just sat there on my finger for 10 minutes I then set him in a box with food and water. 30 min later I go to check on him he is on top of my light fixture he can fly! Why are wild dove doing this right now? Also other wild bird species are landing incredibly close to me and not spooking away. Non of this has ever happened before

  • The other day I saw 3 pure white doves on the road. I never seen white doves before and to see 3 together. I was in aww and instantly felt that they symbolise a message, i had to know. So glad for this site :)

  • :smile: : God bless everyone! Today I experienced something extraordinary. So beautiful in its own way. My husband and I were taking a walk with our two children. We were having a beautiful walk. My two daughters and I were having a conversation when we heard my husband say, “Hay, they are going to tow our truck!” We all said, oh! Smack. My twelve year old daughter ran to see but she still was a little far from the truck, but we all followed behind her. My husband turned back at me and said, “I don’t know if it was a bird or? I looked at him. Then said well at least you maid her run and she’s done for her exercise. We laughed! He said to her Run, run as fast as you can. When my husband and I got there mu daughter said, “Mom, look!” The first thing i saw was a beautiful white collar dove sitting on the left side of the windshield of the truck. It seemed as if it was waiting for us. I told him to get closer to it and extend his arm to it. It looked as if it looked at me then to them and then it flew away to the back of the truck then went up, and disappeared. The first thing in my head was this is a message from god. We all prayed and i got on the phone to look uo what it meant. This is where i am at right now. I had to leave a message for everyone to read. To me is so calming and so serene because we have gone through so much this past four years. I am pregnant now and and I’ve told my husband that I am somehow changing in my ways, ways in which i don’t feel angered with the people of my past that drove me to all things I’ve been going through. It was a god sent message.

  • I had seen a dove fly into the supermarket where I work , it damaged its wing a bit trying to get out and knocking against the large windows , several members of staff tried to chase it and one man did catch it and set it free.outside i forgot about it until the following evening when i was on my usual late shift and stepped out of kiosk to put a customers basket in a rack , when i stepped back into the kiosk a noise like a gunshot penetrated the air and i was amazed to see a bottle of cheap champagne fall of the shelf and land on the floor in many shards and all the liquid spilled , I thought that I had somehow dislodged the bottle , but the two customers waiting to be served said it exploded in front of them , that dove was a protective totem , it had landed in the same area in which I had worked and it had somehow blessed the area , the bottle would have exploded right behind my head had I not stepped out of the kiosk for a single moment , God was with me Amen.

  • I have a dove who has been hanging around my back yard for months. She’s a mourning dove who has a very distinct rosy colored chest. This dove often sits on one of my lawn chairs and stares in the window for hours…..usually most of the day. This has gone on for so long, my kids notice when she’s not there. At least once a day, this bird flies against window as if trying to land on the screen. Not hard, just enough to get out attention. I’ve heard of more aggressive birds doing this, but never a dove. Maybe it’s nothing, but I live in the mountains. There are thousands of birds who fly around here, but this one is different…….at least I sense “she’s” different. I’d be forever grateful for any and all opinions as to what this may mean. Thank you.

    • the day my grandson was born [ las t week ] 2 doves lay on the grass next to me for hours while I paced about waiting for news. yesterday he had to go to hospital with an infection and I was worried. a baby dove sat on a brach inches above my head , I spoke to it and it listened , and it did not move all afternoon, even when my dog barked at it. lovely .

  • Not to long ago, I was driving to my work and when I got to a stop light…I saw 3 white doves sitting on the wire above me…they seemed to glow. Can’t describe it…. i have had a lot struggles this year..emotionally, financially, spiritually, etc. …

  • I have seen two Doves in two days, I have not dreamed of them so what is the difference between seeing them and dreaming of them. Can you please let me know.

  • I Dreamt That A White Dove Was Flying Under Clear Water And I Was Under Water As Well And Breathing :

  • When I was maybe five years old, I had my first spirit animal dream. I was pushing through heavy underbrush, lost in the woods, when a dove landed on my shoulder. It whispered in my ear, “Watch out… Your enemy is behind you.” I turned to see a large brown bear towering over me with a snarling countenance before waking up.

    So far, my totems are the dove and the lion. I’m still working it what it all means.

    Any thoughts on this?

  • So today I dreamed of a dove, this is how my dream went I was outside it was dark and I could see the clouds that were purple/black/dark and there was a hole up in the cloud and I could see blue sky up there and suddenly I see a dove fly around then it goes down and die. I don’t know what it means but can someone tell me what my dream met? Please!!!!!!!!!

  • When sitting next to the ocean in an early morning quiet time, I prayed to know the things that God wished for me to stop giving my life force energy to any longer. I wrote down three things. The third was the word ‘Grieving’. In a few moments, I noticed three doves flying closely together. I watched them fly away together until they were out of view, visualizing myself letting go of the three behaviors. I was supernaturally surprised when I found that the Mourning Dove had chosen to be my spirit animal and teach me the lesson of learning to fly again.

  • I dreamt I was a dove, walking not flying. Happy feeling. I traveled with an elephant and a rock. The rock was alive and could talk. We were travellers and performers. Somehow the elephant fell on me ( the dove) and I could feel the weight and pain. That’s when I woke up and had severe pain in my knee ( pain is chronic ) and not unusual.

  • A white dove flew over me and landed in my yard, I walked away but the bird remained where it had landed like 2 minutes later I walked back and slowly walked towards it. When close to it, it flew to a nearby fence and sat, still I walked towards it and it actually let me pet it before flying off. It actually let me touch it!

  • I am sitting at my job on the 3rd floor and there is a Dove sitting on my windowsill just staring at me. It stared at me for 15 minutes before it turned around looked back at me and flew away. I even took pictures of him.

  • Hi!
    Today I was at work. (I work for my dad). Slow day. And a coworker of mine makes a joke to open the door to let the guest in. I look up and I see a white dove. Gorgeous really. It was staring right into the glass just standing there gracefully. I couldn’t understand what the dove was trying to say. But I knew it was there for a reason (we rarely see doves in that area not to mention WHITE and at night!) I walked out toward the dove and rather than flying away it seemed to lead me in some direction. I couldn’t follow as I had work. It came back though! And I stared at it and it stared back. I kept asking it what it wanted. I thought it was injured but every time I stepped closer it would step away. I tried letting it out of my mind until my dad just got a call 5 hours later telling him his dad (my grandfather) passed away. I can’t help but wonder if the dove has any correlation to this event or if it was just a coincidence ! Everyone else thinks I’m crazy!

    • Spiritual leaders and some others say the people who have passed on will show signs like a song or birds or object to loved ones. Perhaps your grandfather was letting you know he was fine.

  • Dreamt watching news on a big screen could not understand a word because the caption and the news were in Arabic still confused a big white dove appeared on the screen and someone told me it was my spiritual guide. So my question is how does a bird guide me when we can’t communicate how does it help me? What was this dream all about? Thanks

  • hi there. just two weeks ago i witnessed a pigeon who was injured and had flown into a reflective glass. I am writing here because my understanding is that pigeons are of the same family as mourning doves. i took the bird home with me and have taken care of it. it was unable to stand or walk and is now walking and able to fly. The morning after finding the pigeon, I dreamt this pigeon with purple and blue shining feathering on the back of its neck, standing upright and courtly from the box it was in. That day I was told to leave the bird for animal services to “take care” of it assuming that it will not survive. that didn’t feel like an appropriate solution. i took it home with me and cared for it for two weeks. now it is in a rehabilitation facility tending to an orphaned pigeon. both will be released when they have reached good health. any reflections on this experience and dreams would be greatly appreciated.

  • Recently, my father was very ill and passed away. The day before he died I saw the remaining feathers of a dove scattered on the ground around my car. I was being watched by two doves the following morning as I got into the car. I’ve never noticed doves around the estate before.

    • Hey Sean i was just wondering what area you saw the two doves, ? As I have seem them recently as well …that’s amazing just the two doves flew over my property.
      Cheers Phnx.

      • Hi phnx,
        They are in Ireland. Collared doves. I saw one again this morning so they must be nesting locally. Many people here claim we are in for a very cold winter. Lots of birds being very active at this time make up part of this forecast.

  • I had a mourning dove. My friends found it out of its nest as a baby. We took good care of it. Eventually, we let it go. She’d visit us everyday.

    It’s been more than a month, and she has not returned ever since.

  • A dove nested in a palm tree in our garden. I hadn’t realised until after some big wind storms and I realise the nest had been blown form the tree. i found the 2 baby birds safely nestled on a ledge outside my bathroom. They have now learn’t to fly their mother comes and feeds them and they are all happily residing ( + coo-ing). I definitely have a thing with animals but any deeper insight would be highly appreciated

  • I was in TX Big Bend National Park having traveled from Vt. and was sitting outside cabin praying – so grateful for the time there- and when I opened my eyes a dove was sitting not two feet from me on the porch.. just looking at me. For close to a half hour! The dove flew away then and my husband came out on the porch- I told him about the dove and he pointed to the limb of the tree behind me where sat that same dove- I was overwhelmed by the peacefulness thereafter. Wish it could last!


  • ❓ ahm.. can you please help me interpret my dream..
    i dreamt of seeing dead doves and among them i saw one that was alive. i think i saw them in my backyard…

    • Hello Haydee: The dream is symbolic of your inability to let go of control in your waking life. You must allow spirit and others the space to do their work as well. Micro managing your life is stifling your creativity.

  • Was driving down my street tonight about to pull into my driveway when I noticed a small gray mound In the road…stopped got out and discovered an injured mourning dove who is now safely secured in my basement…after reading the above meanings, that dove and I were meant to cross paths this evening. Amazing!! I now can only hope it recovers and survives!
