Choose your priorities and eliminate all distractions.

If Hawk has flown into your life;

Be aware that there is a message to be received and interpreted. Hawk holds the key to higher consciousness and trying to bring certain things into your circle of awareness. Know that enlightenment is imminent.

This bird of prey often represents the ability to see meaning in ordinary experiences if you choose to become more observant.

Many of the messages this bird brings you are about freeing yourself of thoughts and beliefs that are limiting your ability to soar above your life and gain a greater perspective. It is this ability to soar high above to catch a glimpse of the bigger picture that will allow you to survive and flourish.

If Hawk is your Animal Totem;

Optimism is one of your strongest virtues. You love to share your visions of a better and brighter future. you tend to always ahead of your time and it’s not easy seeing what other people are not ready to see.

Often it is difficult for you to share your insights with others because the other person does not necessarily want to hear it. Learning to give your messages subtly is a must because becoming forceful will cause retreat.

If Hawk comes to your Dreams;

To see a this bird of prey in your dream, denotes that suspicions are lurking around you and your activities. You need to proceed with caution. Alternatively, a hawk symbolizes insight. Consider the phrase “hawk’s eye” to mean that you need to keep a close watch on someone or some situation. The key is to sense the subtle meaning carried by the winds and spirit of change.

  • The pussy cat, the sparrow hawk (young ) and the two magpies
    I bought two very old religious statues while on holiday, and on my return I felt full of the Spirit, I lit a candle in front of the two statues, one of Jesus and one of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and felt enlightened somehow. The very next day a black cat that comes to my house sometimes, plucked up the nerve to enter my kitchen. I gave it some milk and it went out and sat on my patio. I then went to the toilet and heard a cry/screech, so looked out the window, and to my amazement the cat was gone, but on the lawn was a beautiful sparrow hawk, which had a white fleck on the right of its neck, and a larger white patch on its left back side. The hawk was on top of a starling, and stood still, whilst looking around, and also looking at me looking at it. It then proceeded to devour the starling. I thought it very unusual for the sparrow hawk to stay put whilst being watched. I raced up stairs and got my camera and took numerous shoots of it eating the bird. Halfway through its meal, two magpies came and screeched, trying to make the sparrow hawk fly off its kill; but the magpies kept their distance, never getting nearer than a few yards, and stayed on the fence top at a safe distance. By this time half the starling had been devoured, and the sparrow hawk looked around in every direction, and then launched itself into the air, flew over the garden fence, and disappeared into the cover of some trees in neighbouring gardens. I then went out and took a picture of the carnage left on the lawn; feathers surrounded a few patches of orangey-red blood. I then wrote this and went back out to the lawn to find out what I’d thought had been a blackbird was indeed a starling, for the head and its long sharp opened beak leading up to its gold on black bespeckled head. Out of all the, what looked like grey feathers, I found two longer feathers, wing or tail feathers which at a closer inspection were a soft brown, getting darker until the edges were golden. I took the two feathers and blew upon them and with one anointed the damaged hands and nose of the Virgin Mary, and with the other anointed the more intact statue of the Lord Jesus Christ. I then placed the feathers behind a candle, but standing on their quill, with the brownish down, and the golden tip resting at the base of the statues. I then changed blackbird to starling, and finished this article. The Lord moves in strange ways, and sometime we move in even stranger ways than that; but I have to smile, life is so unpredictable. I telephoned my preacher friend to tell him the story before writing it up. We had a great catch up over the phone; that’s what its all about really, friendship through love and understanding, and the love of God, The Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Amen

    p.s. I left the starling’s head for the magpies, for they need sustenance also, as all living things do.

  • Today my boyfriend was working on a roof. An a red tailed hawk came an sat on the chimney by him for like 2 hrs. Never moved. it was about 10 ft or so away. He took a few pics. But he never moved. He got done with the roof he went to move closer an his pry bar fell out an scared him away. Was wondering what this mean. He didn’t fly over he just sat there by him.

    • Look at how sparrows move, they are all close and connected as one hive mind made of unique individual attributes that blend as one. the hawk acts the same way over greater distances from each other. They have a heightened spiritual senses and respects. They don’t just watch with their hawk eyeballs, they watch with their spirit all of the energy transfer ……. Using their brain to combine the information from both states of being for a interpretation of the world around them.

  • I do not know much about animal totems. I found this site by googling hawk totems. The other day, as my husband and I were hitching our trailer full of brush, a hawk flew quickly over us. He completely missed it, but I saw it curve around our house, down to maybe 4 feet above our trailer and us and away. It was really fast, as it passed over us its wings were tucked in. I could barely make out the coloring. From searching photos online, I believe it to be a Red-Tailed hawk, one of the most common here in Iowa.

    The next day, I attended a psychic fair. An aura reader there told me she saw a hawk in my aura, and suggested I look up what hawks bring as totem animals. She also told me not to limit myself on what I can do. So here I am. After reading a few posts I am hoping someone will have a viewpoint I am not seeing at the moment. Thank you in advance if you choose to share with me.

    A little background: first off, the trailer full of brush was a ridiculously overdue “to do” item on our agenda. Recently my husband finally got in motion with his personal goal of going back to school. It seems to have given him a spark. For me, I am wrestling with major changes in my career and life path. I have worked at the same place for over 12 years, so I’m not just changing jobs, I feel like I’m breaking up with my second family. It is long overdue, but painful and nerve racking. I will miss seeing the people I care about there.

    • I’m just sitting in my wooded backyard, with my laptop, preparing myself for the next stage of my life (losing old job, in pursuit of new job, with cancer and wonderful kids and husband). I’m pushing through anxiety which has crippled my career, where I’m at the point of choosing the fork in the road. I look-up and see a hawk in the distance soaring then diving. It was beautifully spiritual. For me, this hawk has come to guide me through this fear.

  • Hi there. It’s unlike me to post on a board such as this but I was wondering if anyone could provide some insight. Just this morning, I encountered a red-shouldered hawk (I reside in a suburban area of East Georgia). I was leaving my neighborhood for work this morning, and he flew gracefully in front of my car, flying in from the right and landing to my left on the corner of our neighbor’s house. I’ve always been fascinated by birds of prey so I stopped my car and took a photo. Looking at the photo now, there was a utility pole in front of the house the bird was perched on, labeled with the number 14. I’ve done some reading this morning and see that hawks tend to be associated with the number 14? Anyway, I’ve been going through a hard time myself. I experienced an early miscarriage last September – although it was early, it greatly affected me, as I had been trying to get pregnant for about a year. I am now pregnant again, 38 weeks along. This whole pregnancy I’ve been wracked with worry that I will lose this one too. It doesn’t help that I suffer from depression & anxiety as it is. I’ve contacted some psychics online who say they foresee this pregnancy being fine. I’ve prayed my heart out as well. I’ve also been seeing rainbows everywhere – not just in nature, but in photos and clothing and various places… I’ve taken to seeing the rainbows as meaning that this is my rainbow baby and everything will be fine. Seeing the hawk and the 14 this morning threw me off a bit though – I’m hoping it’s not a bad omen? Does anyone happen to have some insight into what they believe it could mean, if anything?

    • Hello, Chelsea . Sorry to hear about your hard time. When hawks bring messages it’s important to see what it’s body language is telling you. In your case, it landing and sitting on the roof I think it is telling you to calm down and relax. Hawks and hawk people, despite being a predator totem, are very loving and protective, and this is reassuring. The number 14 makes me think of temperance, the 14th tarrot card meaning balance and patience. I think (and hope) your message is a good omen and that you should relax and take it one day at a time instead of constantly worrying. Leave the pain in the past and learn from it (maybe the timing wasn’t right) and go forward calmly with love and hope. I was drawn to your post, oddly enough by a hawk crying out in the sky this morning while thinking about someone I love with the same name as you that has been causing me some anxiety. Life can be strange and beautiful, even when we feel like we are in the dark, huh ? I’m gonna listen to my own advice and try to relax and take it one day at a time instead of freaking out. Best of luck to you and your family.

  • Awoke this morning from a dream where a large hawk with a ceremonial bib (or ornimental decoration hanging around its neck) had landed on a table in the back yard where I was. As I’d noticed her, she jumped down from the table and passed by me within 8-10′ looking directly at me with mouth open.

    Which lands me here to this forum… I’m not trying to interpret the dream so much, but I wanted to see if I could find anything online about a hawk wearing an ornimental bib.

  • I have a friend who is going through a really tough time right now, his daughter is depressed cutting her self and it keeps getting worse. This man is also my ex and I am head over heels madly in love with him.
    Anyway I’ve been trying to help him, listen when he wants to talk etc. But it’s not helping. So I decided that I would write down my own story for him, my own story of my own 14 year old self my story of attempted suicide and eating disorders and depression. Showing him someone truly gets it, and is not just offering crappy advise as they don’t know what’s going on. So I was sitting in my porch writing this letter today and there was a pair of Hawks dancing in the air above my house. Screeching and soaring the whole time I was writing this letter. When I finished they were gone.
    Now I’ve seen them everywhere this year, like literally hundreds of them this year. They didn’t come out until the daisies went away and the spiders and bats. And all those came out when he and I started sort of seeing each other again. I’m literally talking hundreds of all of the above. Like fields of daisies and lining the streets on my way to work, spiders like I’ve never seen before, and bats… The universe is telling me something and I am so lost as to what it is right now, it’s like a huge slap in the face and I’m supposed to be finding it, but I can’t figure it all out.

    Now you’re probably wondering why I call it dancing, and I always have called a birds soaring dancing. Anyway I went and saw a physic when I was younger like 20 years ago younger 😃 And she was a joke just like the ones you see at carnivals on tv, I honestly don’t remember much of that visit but as I was leaving the room she told me when Hawks dance in pairs I’ll find true love. I just shook it off until this summer, when we started seeing eachother again, and I’m not kidding you every time I talk to him or see him I see this pair of Hawks dancing in pairs.
    What does this mean? I’m lost and confused and really appreciate your help. deep down I think I know that he and I are right, that I need to fight harder, I think.
    As I sit here writing this that pair of Hawks is back screeching and dancing. Help please!

  • Years ago whenever my fiancee and I would take a road trip I would see hawks a lot. If I saw a hawk I knew the trip would be great and uneventful. If I did not see a hawk it would be a hard trip or we might not get along. One day we even stopped to watch 3-5 hawks just flying overhead. Fast forward five years, my fiancee died. A couple of days after I went to my back patio and beside my house is this large oak tree. In the crock of the tree there sat a hawk. It sat there the whole time I was outside and as I sat there I just had this sense that it was there to comfort me. Just last week a very good friend past away and the next day there was a hawk up in another tree at the back of my yard. I live in town and have never seen any other hawks other than these two. With both of the people in my story above I was with them when they died. To watch the life go out of a person you love is a very hard thing to do . I believe the hawks where sent to tell me they made it to heaven and they are fine.
    Another bird story I have is about a wood pecker. After my fiancee died, I would ask him for a sign that he was there. Every night for a month I would ask him to knock to let me know he was with me. I never got the knock that I was looking for so I quit asking, feeling like a fool for believing in the afterlife. Feeling alone. A couple of days after I stopped asking I woke up on a Sunday and out on my patio in my big oak tree was a wood pecker just pecking away, even when I walked out of the house the bird didn’t fly away. He pecked at the tree for about four hours and I haven’t seen one since. I believe those were the knocks I was looking for and no longer feel alone, ever.

  • Hawks have been a part of guarding and healing in my life for the past 10 years. I was speaking about this with my sister-in-law yesterday because her husband has cancer and, so far, things are not going well. I was thinking of this this morning as I got into my car after shopping and as I pulled away I saw a large shadow on the ground in front of my car and I knew it was a hawk. I stopped the car and got out to look and above and to the left of me were 10 hawks in a very tight circle going around. They moved off to the south east as I watched them..

    I have never seen 10 hawks together at one time but I respect their presence and appreciate their help. Their message will be made known in good time.

  • Went to the park with the dog this morning, and after we had been at the oval for a while a huge flock of hawks started circling above it, like a vortex. They would land in large numbers while the others kept circling and then swap places so there were always hawks flying and always hawks on the ground. But it wasn’t just hawks, there were a lot of other birds too, non-raptors, galahs and plovers and they were all just mixed in happily, leaving each other alone, all across the oval. There was absolutely no one else, just me and my dog and there was a really peaceful feeling, with the birds flying every where all around us, flying low and flying high. Like a new start was coming but it was going to be peaceful, beautiful. Then someone arrived with some kids and dogs on the other side of the oval and disturbed it, so all the birds were flying up off the ground, but it still felt peaceful. And they were flying so close to us, like it felt we were a part of it, like they knew we weren’t a threat. And they settled back down really quickly too. A lot of the other birds left, but the huge flock of hawks were still there, settled mostly on the ground near where we were. There came a point when it felt like the moment was over, it was time to leave, and the hawks started to slowly leave and break off, but as I walked away with my dog a smaller flock of maybe 10 of them stayed with us circling pretty close right over my head until we got to the edge of the oval and left the park, before they dissipated and left themselves. Wow. The whole thing lasted for about an hour.
    I’ve noticed a LOT of hawks circling and flying around my area for the past few days, since the full moon on Thursday but that was definitely the most interesting and powerful encounter.
    Thanks for this article. It makes perfect sense. :)

  • Sitting on my back porch and enjoying a cup of coffee. Am the only one awake at my house now. Deeply troubled about many things in my life. No, I’m not going into detail. Thinking things through and feeling are two important steps in healing. Then, I heard a hawk. It’s screaching sounded like “Wait! Where are you going? Come back!” The sound got closer and closer. Suddenly, they were above me…two of them…winging their way through the Georgia pines. Magnificent! Weaving their way through…knowing just when to fold in their wings and when to flap just so. Not a single leaf or needle was disturbed. Not one! How such large birds could move so gracefully and effortlessly through the seemingly unpenetrable is beyond me. A second later they were gone and the screeching contined into the distance…fading away. I’ll never know why one was chasing after the other. All I know is that they weren’t fighting, one was not chasing the other away. It was just trying to catch up. God…Great Spirit…Universal Force…Love…thank you for bringing them into my life. I still am concerned about the deeply troubling matters. But, you have reminded me that you are always there…always watching…always caring…always willing to show me a higher perspective and to ask, “Wait! Where are you going? Come back!”

    • Hello, Bill… I, too, am experiencing some great crossroads. This summer, we have had a Cooper’s hawk nesting nearby. We have lived in our in-town home for 20 years, and have never seen Hawks here. Now there is a young hawk, too. Upon looking up the message, I can see where I have become much too concerned with my daily path than the bigger picture… a purpose God has for me as I prepare to blindly move to the coast of North Carolina where I feel I have been called for a greater purpose. This message to open up and let myself view daily happenings and preparation with greater perspective. Thank you for your comments!

  • Another hawk experience of mine is I was driving my dad home from the hospital and a hawk flew right in front of my window had i been centimeters closer I would’ve hit him never seen one this up close wing span had to be 5-6 feet wide he was gorgeous

    • Well today I am baffled … leaving the house today I found a dead Broad-Winged Hawk laying side of the road. I couldn’t just leave it there; so I picked it up with some gloves & put it in a box in the trunk to bury properly. I believe it was hit by a car as it seemed it had a broken neck. There were no other visual wounds or bleeding & it had to have happened within an hour or two of me finding it because it was very ‘fresh’ if you will … Okay so the day goes by- I do my errands, go to an appointment and head home about 5hrs later. I’m driving, almost home, and not two miles before I reached my road where I found the dead Hawk, another Hawk that looks just like the dead one- flew right across the road & over my windshield. I rarely ever see these beautiful birds up close. Yup- and so I am baffled. lol. To give you an idea about me; I am a very spiritual man. I honor Creator and Mother Earth. I’ve been studying Reiki, Pranic Healing, Crystal Healing & Tai Chi / Meditation for years, along with having a job most of my life that is in the outdoor sports recreation industry. And I’ve also been re-learning about my Native American background over the last few years. Okay- so I am a spiritual guy; you get it.. lol. However I am lost in this now- what am I to do with the Hawk.
      Seems like a message and or that someone is trying to tell me something; but I don’t know what it is and its bothering me quite a bit. And this isn’t really like me at all- to be frozen and not know what to do. Even coming to write about it online. Not me either…
      Now honestly- Part of me wants to keep some of the feathers but I don’t know if that is the right thing to do either. And just an FYI on that- All laws are being followed of course & this has nothing to do with the part of me wanting to keep some feathers but now knowing if its the right thing to do.

      Does anyone here have any thoughts as to “your” own interpretive on the events that I described with the two Hawks in my day today? One Dead. One Flying over me… I would be delighted and open to hearing from you all about this event. I could write on and on about the things happening in my life that are just so crazy and out of control. But I am not going to. The Hawk has great symbolism and many interpretations. But the way this played out today, along with the fact that I never see these birds up close- well it just feels like there is something more to it all.

      Thanks for your time and comments!
      Love & Light

      • Hi Ian
        I’m in the same boat as you. A hawk landed in my yard yesterday and it was ill and died 20 minutes later. I have lived her for 23 years and this is my third time only to see a hawk. I overtoned to it as it transitioned, if it had flown 3 yards further I would never have known it was there…
        What to do …I’m having to make a decision re my house at the moment and I feel hawk spirit is here to guide me in this as it is a major decision..
        I have had a rook come live with me for two years and again I was making a decision that changed my life. I have had a Heron come live with me and a bearded dragon come live with me and they all left after a year which also coincided with a land ownership situation..
        That’s my two pence worth or interpretation as you mentioned…major decisions life altering changes
        Blessing to you fellow traveller


      • Hi Ian,

        In my experience, hawks are messengers that something is about to happen, something important and to be alert. That the hawk you found was dead and then another one flew across your path – I would love to know if it’s from right to left or left to right, but you seem to say, right to left. I studied with a native medicine man for a while, and he thought me about these. Rigth to left, the answer is ‘yes’ to whatever question you had in mind – and we always have a question, right?

        My instinctive, immediate reply to your post was that this was the mate of the dead hawk come to thank you for taking care of his or her mate. And on a symbolic level further, that either a new mate is coming to you if you’re alone, or if in a relationship, something good is going to happen there.

        I don’t know about the feathers really, but please read above regarding the hawk flying right or left.

        I hope this helps!
        Before I leave, I have to tell you another hawk story.

        I had a neighbor who was unhappy, let’s say, causing a lot of problems for everyone around. Last summer, she told me she started seeing red tailed hawks all around, they came to her tree next to her house, they were sitting on a fence looking at here, etc. I actually saw some of their unusual behavior as well, and then she found an almost dead hawk by the roadside and brought it home, and then to me because she couldn’t call the Env. rescuers because the hawk was sitting on her arm. She was brave in that respect, they have huge talons.

        Long story short, after thinking what could be wrong, I brought it a bowl of water, and to my surprise, the hawk drank little by little while I held the bowl, stroked the hawk’s crown, and she was still sitting on my neighbor’s arm. And then what seemed miraculous: She started to stir, spreading her wings (for some reason, I’m convinced it was a ‘she’), and then just suddenly took off in flight! It was a magnificient hawk, and I will never forget touching a big hawk like that with huge talons,.

        I thought then something was definitely going to happen to my neighbor and possibly to me too, because the hawk was alerting her in a big way, and me too.

        A month or so ago, my neighbor’s house caught fire and burned down. Noone was hurt, and she had wanted to move so bad for a long time but could not sell her house, so it was a good thing for her ini the longer run – and also to me, since I had a shared well with her and she tried to bully me off it. I had to go without water in my house for over 2 weeks after the fire though, and she again fought me tooth and nail, although I had the legal right… But the end result for me was I have my water, and a peaceful next door property since she moved away and the house was torn down, she got the insurance money to start anew. So all in all, the hawks gave a message something was going to happen and to me alert – things did happen in a big way, causing trauma and heartache, but in the end things turned out much much better for me and also for my neighbor.

        I think I’ve rambled on a bit, but only trying to be helpful… Let me know what si happening in your life regarding the hawk.. if you want to , thanks, and blessingls

  • So i have come to realize that no matter where I am if I look to the sky there’s always a hawk in my sight…I am very in tune with emotions and my visions but this hawk thing has me baffled any deeper insight? ??

  • A few weeks ago I came across 3 hawks eating a deer carcass. It caught my attention because although we have hawks in the area, I have never seen more than 1 at a time. It struck me as very out of the ordinary and I have not been able to get it out of my mind.

  • Okay so I had this dream the other night.
    I was walking down a dirt road when all of a sudden a black COUGAR came up from the hill..yes a black cougar.
    anyways that black cougar started circling me so I started clapping my hands and crying for help when all a sudden that black cougar jumped at me and in the middle of its jump it turned into a hawk and started attacking my belly? I woke up after that

  • I was driving home from work with the front windows halfway down. As I was approaching a lake on the left, I saw 2 hawks chasing each other; like juveniles do. I paid no mind, assuming they know how to fly and will likely avoid my car. However, as I approached, the chaser turned upward and the one being chased flew perfectly in through the half open driver’s side and smacked the side of my head. It started flapping all over inside the car. Before I could get all the windows open, it had come to rest wedged between the windshield and dash in front of me. I stopped the car and stood in front of the car. It started moving toward the passenger side, but I motioned it toward the driver side. If it flew out the passenger side, it may have went into freeway traffic (I was on a frontage road near the freeway). Out it went and that was it. A couple scratches on my dash, nothing on me. No stray feathers, nothing. When it was in the windshield, it almost looked embarrassed. So… was this a once-in-a-millenium sort of thing or was this hawk really trying to tell me something? I’m normally not a superstitious or “meaning behind everything” kinda guy, not am I religious. I’m curious about it, though.

    • I have encountered several occurrences with Hawks. I stood several feet from one that few onto the lower roof of my house. My wife came outside screaming at me to get inside because 100 plus Hawks were flying above our home. They were fairly low to the ground. You say, a hawk few into your car. I find that hard to believe. I do believe a bird flew into your car but a hawk, they are large. Wing span over 12FT. I have had a bird fly into my car as I drove along side a farm. He left powder marks where he hit inside. As for the meaning of a bird. The type of bird is important. However, birds are messengers that some encounter will occur. Doesn’t have to be a bad occurrence. It’s a heads up thing.

    • Ryan, what a wonderful story! How very wonderful to have such a beautiful encounter!
      I grew up in New Mexico around Native Americans who taught me from a young age to listen to the messages of nature for they have a keen intuition!
      This has served me very well in my life!
      It was truly a message for you….I hope it has become CLEAR for you! Blessings to you!

    • I’d say it has some meaning and it’s been trying to get your attention for a while. It had to hit you “up side the head” to wake you up!

  • This morning before work, three Hawks were situated on top of my garage, and swooped over in front of me, as I walked to my car. Curiosity, I have a Rabbit in the house….I need not be worried that they will search for an open window or such should I? My thought also is, were they there, as protection to me….

  • Upon returning home this week and close to my birthday on June 23rd, I walked up to my front door and there sat a baby Coopers hawk on my door stoop, directly in front of my single door entrance to my house. I was unable to enter my house obviously unless I was to disturb him. He/She was lovely, about 5 in tall and looked at me closely as I literally squatted down and took immediate iPhone pictures of it. I stooped down to be less than 1 ft away from her. The baby hawk didn’t even flinch, nor did it move sideways or away. We sat there together for more than 7 minutes just watching each other. I looked around for it’s mother, but saw and heard nothing. My first impression was it was learning to fly, but then thought how did it get there from my behind my house in the wooded area all the around to of all places – my front door step? I admired it for the longest time and know there must be some special meaning since I’ve been deeply questioning my furture plans of late. Perhaps I need to take a leap of faith and move to go where I think I will be find personal happiness, or maybe I need to stay put and hold on tight to what little roots I have. Irregardless, I wish I could post the pic I took of the baby Coopers hawk, she sure was beautiful and I feel honored to have had her visit with me. She did fly off BTW, after I reached out my hand to her. Amazing.

  • Yesterday I was driving fown a country road and when I went around a bend I saw this huge hawk in the road. Kind of off to the side but still in harms way. So I honked the horn and it didnt budge. No fear. Just stood there looking at me. So I pulled over and got out. I was kind of leary but I knew he had to be moved into a safer location asap. This bird had no fear. I walked right up to him and tried to shoo him away but he still didnt budge. So we stood there looking at each other for a bit not really sure what I was going to do next. By that time a guy in a van pulled up and we we talked about the situation. We were both dumbfounded. All of a sudden the hawk looked off into the distance like he was stalking something and ran a few steps and took off in flight. I dont know why but it feels like there is some significant meaning. The did not appear to be injured. Whsts even more wild is that I saw a coyote in broad daylight a few days earlier. It looked directly at me as well before it ran off. I would question my sanity but I had others with me at the time.

  • Last night I was driving on the highway and a hawk swooped down and hit the trunk of the car in front of me, then bounced onto the street below still flapping its wings. I had absolutely no way to stop in time as we were going 60mph on this highway and I ran over it. I feel absolutely terrible, but I know there was nothing I could physically do that wouldn’t cause a tremendous accident. I am just wondering if this all means something.

  • Today a hawk paid a visit to my new place of residence and business,. kept screeching quiet loud and knocking with his beak on my glass door, for a good 2hrs, and brought a dead bird with him, kept stepping on the bird and screeching continuously. I’m bit lost… I never seen one that close and the city I live in dallas, TX you’ll hardly see one. If there is any answer to this you’re answers would be truly appreciated.

    • For some reason, I am got the word ‘drugs’ from your story. Were you on drugs or maybe you need to do a psychedelic to get more information? Was the bird also a hawk? If it was a friend that was dead, perhaps it was blaming you. That would be a bad sign. Perhaps if you did the drugs, you would be able to communicate with the hawk spirit and figure out the issue so that it isn’t hanging around your space.

  • Hi
    I have both hawks and crows both following me at my place.it is weird the harder i pray the more crows come and hawks circling.the place I’m living in is a negative vortex of sorts.the signs are there , fights heaviness, dis ease, cats, slugs.its a nightmarish place.i mean it’s a sick place.i really feel when I get out of there it feels good.
    I was trying to cleanse the place which is a battle itself with negative entities.tiring.there was this one day as I was cleansing.the next neighbourhood Is hawk dominant, but then It was like a crazy scene, there appeared 200+ or so crows circling rising in a circular fashion just 5 metres from my place.all iv learnt people are not what they seem even the best examples.i guessing I’m a threat to some people, systems and entities and feel like they constantly trying to sabotage, kill me, opress.im still alive.the more I fight back the weirder things happen . paraphernalia thrown, cats poisoned, etc etc etc etc,weird stuff.the more I try to meditate the harder they try to distract me
    There’s a world of dark stuff.on this journey so far.iv realised that your only friend is the creator.how I know this are the various animal sent to chill me out.
    People ain’t what they seem, family as well.
    Talk about weird dreams I’m living in things made of your weird dreams people’s.
    There’s a war going on for sure………………….
    What’s up with ibis.i get good vibes from ibis, than I do from the hawks and crows???????????????

    • YOU need to chill OUT dude. You have got to Let GO of all the shit you just brought up because it is ridiculous. Life is way bigger and way more precious and loving and AMAZING than any of this nonsense. It’s very easy to get caught up in this stuff and it’s even easier to NOT be caught up. It’s much easier to not be caught up because you can just very simply DISMISS it ALL within a matter of AN INSTANT. Just remove it ALL from your thoughts. Now, YOU Listen to me okay? Everyone has bad stuff around them and good. You aren’t alone in some evil vortex. STOP looking at every aspect of life and seeing bad in it. You are attracting into your life what you are believing to be so. ANYTIME you see or feel or think or fear ANYTHING and you interpret it to be negative? I want You to IMMEDIATELY remove that negative view and replace it with a positive perspective. You got that? Also? After you read this? I want you to say out loud to yourself, “FROM THIS MOMENT ON, ALL FORMS OF NEGATIVE FEARFUL EVIL UGLY CRUELNESS WORRY OR DOOM FILLED TYPES OF THOUGHTS BELIEFS ENERGIES OR VIEWPOINTS ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO EXIST WITHIN ME OR TO TAKE UP ANY SPACE WITHIN ME OR MY BODY OR MY MIND MY HEART & MY LIFE. I ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT TOLERATE IT OR ACCEPT IT. EVERY NEGATIVE WORRY FILLED THOUGHT OR VIEWPOINT? YOU HAVE TO LEAVE RIGHT NOW. YOU ARE HEREBY DISMISSED AND YOU ARE NOT WELCOME TO RETURN. PERIOD.
      That is all you have to do. CHANGE YOU. Crows fly in huge flocks sometimes and they also do aerial formation tricks. So what! That’s what crows do. What business is it of yours to make it something negative and then afflict yourself with that negative energy? Seriously? Back off of crows dude and everything else. See YOURSELF and your life and the world around you for the GOOD and BEAUTY and HAPPINESS that everything be holds. All of these energies exist, happy & sad, positive & negative and good & evil. Everyone lives amongst all of this energy not just YOU. Do NOT acknowledge bad ok? Acknowledge GOOD. It’s THAT easy. If you choose to ignore this very simple and very powerful advice and continue in your negative reality than you are an idiot and that’s on you. That means you are doing this to yourself on purpose and you can’t be stopped or helped because you refuse to become enlightened or evolved.
      Also? Do NOT refer to yourself as a THREAT. Do NOT allow words such as sabotage threat kill ibis to leave your mouth ever again. You just need to STOP all this NONSENSE dude like YESTERDAY already. You got that? It’s done. It’s over. It’s played OUT. Look for the goodness in yourself and everything around you and THAT is what you will become. Ya dude there’s bad we get it, just don’t make it yours. If you do? Then bad is winning because it’s reached you so it must be spreading. Leave bad alone and let it sit with itself where it cannot emerge or expand. Tell everything negative to back OFF! Seriously, Don’t talk shit about crows for God’s sake I mean really? They’re crows so what! Who cares! Just because people have used them in movies books stories whatever as being evil? Does not mean it’s true ok? Hello! They are black so they look scary so people use them in scary stories to make their story more believable. Crows are God’s creatures and therefore they are beautiful innocent and loving just like every other creature. Don’t fall for the hype dude. Don’t get it twisted. It’s a big world out there so put on your big boy pants and strap in your seatbelt because it’s gonna be a HUGE and AWESOME RID. Stop talking SHIT and Go enjoy your LIFE! 😊😊🎯🎯👍🏽👍🏽❤️❤️

  • My mom just had a red tail fly into a window. Unfortunately the bird did not make it. We don’t know how the glass did not break the impact was so strong. I am concerned because we are putting the house on the market tomorrow. Is this a bad sign?

    Thank you.

    • When birds fly into a window they normally around sign of a passing of someone. They are a passing of something emotionally, mentally, or spiritual, by all accounts her selling her house is like a death, because she mostly like spend a great deal of time with the house.

  • Just about half an hour ago, I saw a coyote out in the field across the street. I haven’t seen one in over 6 months and was able to get a little video of her before she started heading back to the woods. I put the camera away and watched her some more and noticed her stop at the edge of the field. Just then a huge white bird, a White Hawk (my first time seeing one,) flew right above her head and landed on a tree across the way. Coyote stayed an extra 10 seconds or so to look at the hawk before returning to the woods. Sadly, I wasn’t fast enough to get a picture/video of the hawk but WOW. Any ideas what these two combined mean? Thanks!

  • I rarely remember my dreams. Last night I had a dream that a huge hawk flew into my arms trying to get away from another. It was as if it wanted me to take it into my arms and protect it from harm. Very bizarre. Looking for meaning.

    • I had a similar dream, in which i ended up protecting a hawk. At the time I was with a wise advisor of mine, and she told me that it might symbolize me protecting a vision or idea (the hawk) from danger. I saw a baby hawk so she suggested there was a budding idea I was protecting, but you did not mention yours being a young hawk. I hope this helps

  • A few days ago, close family from out of town came to visit, and we had a wonderful time. A day after they left, we found that a substantial amount of money was stolen. All evidence points to a significant other of one of the family members. I am 100% sure that it is this person, but everything is substantial. Even though family members are in shock, nothing has been resolved. Believe me, I am not one to accuse easily. Last night, I had the strangest dream. A hawk was in front of my view. At first it would swoop down to swallow small birds whole. Then, the prey was getting larger. It began attacking a fox. As it bothered me to watch this, even though I knew this was nature doing its thing, someone beside me who I can’t identify (they were more like a shadow), stopped me from intervening. When I looked closely, the fox became a regular sized, long furred dog who was frantically trying to get away. As I was held back by this person to let nature take its course, the hawk damaged the dog to where it was alive, but lying down fatally injured. I had broken away from this person to help the dog, but it was too late. It just stared at me. When I looked up, the hawk resumed swooping down on his prey, this time a baby fawn, who had no chance. Then, I woke up. This is the first time I ever dreamed of a hawk. Wow, as I re-read this, it’s starting to make sense as to who the dog and little fawn are, but is anyone out there that interprets well?

    • I feel like you have either hurt two beautiful people or watched the two while they were being hurt….maybe just verbally? The hawk needs you to pay closers attention. Just my thoughts

    • From reading about the recent incident in your family I interpret the dream as being a reflection of the situation described weighing heavily on your heart. The hawk represents awareness and enlightenment which is symbolic of your intuition and knowledge of who had taken the money and this truth represented by the hawk was attacking metaphorically those in your family who were reluctant or resistant of the truth and ultimately the hawk attacks the largest prey which represents the actual deceiver who committed the wrong doing. And this animal changed or shifted from one form to another as evil doers customarily do in an effort to manipulate or perspective and distance us from the truth so far that we may even protect the wrong doer out of pity. The compassionate component of the pure hearted wants to save even the wicked but the voice of righteousness which doesn’t have a face or a name like your shadow pulls us away so that evil wrongdoings can be reprimanded and dealt with according to the foolproof laws of nature as were set in motion since the beginning of time. Blessings.

  • Recently ive had dreams were hawks are continuously appearing, ive also seemed to be becoming attached to more indian artifacts . I feel like im discovering a past life or discovering my spirit animal first. Its strange. Yet i feel like when i get close im not close enough to see what i must. Is there any advice u can share with me?

  • i went to the woods today to meet some friends and when i met them i looked up through the trees and there were 3 beautiful hawks that were totally white underneath circling around me and i think that was just what i needed!

  • Those are all so awesome..Ive seen a hawk last year on a roadsign almost to my house. ..

  • In May of 2015 I was diagnosed with an extremely aggressive cancer. Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Without treatments I had only a matter of months to live. I immediately started very high chemotherapy treatments. It was horrible. At the end of August my partner and I became aware of a Red Tailed Hawk that would perch on our chimney and appeared unafraid. A few days later in early September and on a gut feeling I found her on an old dead tree across the road. I through some raw strips of steak from the previous nights dinner that I had saved for her. She immediately flew down and ate them. I came to understand through my research that she was a young Red Tailed Hawk that had been captured and trained for Falconry and therefor unafraid of humans. I also came to see that she was handicapped. She had no injuries but she had lost some very important flight feathers. Up until this day I have been feeding her when she comes to me though her visits have become increasingly less frequent. I named her Bella which means beautiful in 3 languages. Her genus is Buteo which sounds somewhat like beautiful. I thought it was a good fit. She disappears for periods of time, the longest being 3 weeks. I completed Chemotherapy in October and in November I was told that I am in complete remission and cancer free. I nurtured Bella all through this and I can’t help but believe that she did the same for me. She came to me when I needed her most and she helped to redirect my focus. She helped to give me strength and her well being was extremely important to me. Her feathers have grown back and she now flys freely and gracefully. She no longer needs me and is returning to the wild as she should. I am still healing but so thankful that I have survived this. I love springtime and it’s close at hand. Gardening, hiking, outdoor projects, kayaking ! I get to do all of those things !!!!! 😎
    Bella is flying freely now and so am I. She is my totem. I didn’t choose her. She chose me.

    • That is an amazing relationship established. Im a bit jelous :mrgreen: i to just finished 8 months of chemo and a hysterectomy.
      I have always had bird medicine around me. Through my chemotherapy my dog became grounding, healing, warm and a true comfort through winter months. Now spring is here, my cancer out of the way, im gardening, cooki thinking ahead. Today i was driving to work and out of the right side a bird flew into my truck. I couldnt stop. My windshild wipper caught a feather and it was a red tail hawk. I have only rescued birds or mercy killed those suffering. I had an experience years ago hitting a dove flying in front of my car. I divorced my husband soon after.

    • Mike this is really inspiring to hear of your heartfelt connection and gifted awareness of this blessed soul within the Hawk. Truely beautiful. Hawk started coming to me when i was on a journey south to a funeral of my dads best friend. Hawk was often sitting on dead trees or flying at significant points in when i was in conversation with my dad. Lately hawk has been coming again and i was pondering what the message of hawk is……life after death…. and recently i met a fellow after praying on the beach together acknowledging Creator and sending up a prayer the fella showed me that a hawk was in the clouds and the clouds certainly where making a hawk a very detailed one too. Very Beautiful. Now Hawk is telling me that their family are messengers from the spirit world from the ones that have passed on that our prayers are being heard and cared for.

    • My experience with a red tailed hawk whose name became “Chisum” was the genesis of “Chisum’s Song” My experience with Mr. Chisum has much in common with your own. If you have a moment please go to my website at cmentch.com and give a read to the lyric under the song tab for “Chisum’s Song: The Amber Cradle of Forever’s Day”.

    • Eat asparagus whenever you can. It was there for you. They always bring a message. Don’the know what it is, different for everyone I suppose.

  • My spirit was awakened this morning, Sat 2/20/16 around 5ish. The Lord was giving me instructions regarding the storm on which I am going through. I followed through with the immediate ones and WILL follow through with the rest as they come. Lord I thank you for all your trials, tribulations and blessings. I bedded myself again, to wake up around 11am feeling fabulous. I let out Precious, my cat to notice a multitude of large birds soaring on a cloudy day. It was awesome. Then I googled it and read the following.

  • I lived in the country. had a field out back. and a mt. behind that. a red tailed hawk live in a tree a little ways up the mt. she would come down around me and land. she had a baby and she watched the baby learn to fly, dive and twist around in the field. next year she had a nest amile from me. oneday I was in my house and I felt her outdoors. went out towards the field and talked to her, and she flew down to me and landed on a fench to my left. after that I would walk around and she would follow me. when my daughter came home that nite she said”mum there is a hawk flying back and forth in front of the window’s[they were big windows]. got to believe that she loved me. I sure enjoyed her.

  • High I am trying to find out if the hawk is my animal totem. I have been seeing hawks since the spring now one flew out the tree as I was walking my dogs and it really cault my eye. So I followed the hawk and it flew out in front of me again. So I followed the hawk to where it perched in the tree again. The hawk let me walk right under neath him while he was perched in the tree which was only 5′ from me and looked right in to my eyes. It just felt spceail and did not no if anybody could help me with its meaning. I see them a lot since I have been paying attention. Just yesterday my son told me a hawk flew out of a tree and tried to grab a bird in are front yard. If anybody could please help me with some insight it would be highly appreciated thank you.

    • I had an experience last March…my husband had died December 2014 and I was still going through trying times…one day in March I was having breathing episode while walking my dog (we h ave woods and open fields on our land) well a red shouldered hawk stArted screeching at me up in a tree. so I assumed I was too close to his nest…so I walked in a different direction. he followed us and perched in a nearby tree and screeched again. so now I am feeling a bit strange…We changed directions again and went into the woods, so he followed me again and perched on tree and screeched….so I stArted to go by our trailer and there are trees nearby and he flew right by me eye level looked me in the eye and perched on a tree…he stayed there until I went inside…I knew I would have visions of this hawk that night…and I woke up in the night and saw a vision first of my husband…then I saw the hawk flying high in the sky with other hawks…I still see the red shouldered hawk…and recently again he perched in the tree by me until I went inside my house…very amazing….

  • Everytime I come to visit my son I always have hawks follow me at least 4-5 at a time would fly over me

  • I’ve seen three hawks over the weekend and I wonder what it meant because my spirit animal is a wolf and my animal totem is an owl.

  • I have a pair of hawks that come back every spring to breed in my cottonwood tree. Last year the female and I came face to face when the juvenile came out of the nest. So awesome to see a hawk eye to eye. We were literally a foot apart. My back yard becomes their territory through the breeding and juvenile process. So awesome to hear their screeches first thing in the morning. Nothing more rewarding then to see these magnificent hawks on a daily basis. Sad to see them go when they migrate back to Argentina for the winter, then the red tails come back for the winter. Awesome. To witness such events of the nesting, breeding and the juveniles is such a rewarding experience. My true totem is a hawk, they came to me, and return every year.

  • I have to start with my mom passing unexpectedly almost a yr ago. But a weeks ago i went to the parking garage at work for a break. I was leaning on the edge looking out and out of nowhere a huge white hawk flew towards me. It was so close we made eye contact! Yesterday at a family gathering, my sister, aunt and step dad were helping my grandfather out of the car..i looked up and s huge hawk was flying towards us, and behind it were 4 white birds. No seagulls..these were little white birds. It was crazy and i dont know what to think.

  • I was asking for a sign driving in to work this morning. Not expecting it to be immediate, I was startled when a hawk flew out of nowhere and swooped in front of my car. This is in a city!! If that’s not a sign, I don’t know what is. Hawks are my absolute favorite!!

    • Hey man the same thing happened to me. I thought the hawk died but not really sure. Driving through boston and the thing just dove right in front of me, i had to swerve to avoid hitting it. Not sure what to think

  • last Sunday I was outside my house when I noticed something move out of the corner of my eye. I don’t even know how it got my attention but it did. It was a red tail hawk. It was hopping out from behind a bush that is up against the house next door. It stopped for a few seconds while looking at me then it took off flying toward the end of my house. I backed up to see it in the sky because I was close to the house. I never saw it above my house. I had found a tail feather about a year ago of the red tail hawk. I live in a city neighborhood with houses 150′ apart. I never could find where it went but know I saw it and it me.
    I had seen an eagle a couple weeks before flying over the house while being attacked by a large black bird. I live in Knoxville Tennessee and eagles are not very common in the skies above the city…..
    I definitely felt like the hawk was communicating with me but not sure how to read this…

  • as i read this… There is a hawk sitting on a rock on my property staring at me through my window for the last 20 minutes.
    Yesterday it tried to fly into my house when opening the door.


    • I wouldn’t be freaked out. Animals have been our messengers for eons!

    • This morning a Hawk greeted me from the top of a telephone pole as I drove into the mountains. This is not unusual where I live -but a little later on the road, one flew down directly in front of the car (I wasn’t going very fast) and flew along my right side for over 1/4 of a mile.

      Later on my hike, I first found one small and then a large Hawk tail-feather. This has never happened in all my walks. I am searching- I sense I a
      m being something that is out of my realm of experience. Hence I don’t know “the” question…..Each question presented thus far has not been the “root” answer. This I feel…..

  • Yesterday, I awoke to single hawk sitting in the very top of the tree outside my bedroom window. It was facing North East for the most part, calling for at least 4 hours. It took off in an Easterly direction and wasn’t seen again until this morning. Again on the same perch. The hawk didn’t stay as long this time. I live in the country and hawks are abundant here. However I find there may be a message I need to hear, as, even though I live in the country, I have never had hawks behave in such a manner. They will perch un the back woods away from the house or fly over, but never so close. Hawk is not my totem nor does he appear in my medicine wheel. Therefore I believe his message is one I must seek to hear.

  • Hi, The hawk is my power animal and I understand it’s symbolism. I see hawks almost every day and I worry about how badly hawks are harassed by ravens while hunting. Today, a kestrel fell to the ground on the edge of the property. It was holding a snake and the head of the snake was torn off. Both the hawk and snake were dead. The hawk had not been shot, and it did not seem likely that it was bitten by the snake, so maybe the ravens managed to dive-bomb it to the ground. Or else it was electrocuted by the transformer wires. One of it’s eyes was whitish. It was so beautiful and strong and brave. I was in awe of it. I sat with the dead hawk while a family of kestrels called to it from the nearby pine tree. I developed a nauseous feeling in my stomach that lasted the rest of the day. My stomach feels a bit better now but I am feeling a loss…. I blessed the hawk and sent it onward to the heavens. Any thoughts that you could share with me about the meaning of this event?

  • I’ve had a hawk following me around for the good part of 20 years it seems everywhere ive have went in my travels ive seen a hawk fowling me around is there any reason for this ?

  • In my dream I was younger, with my now deceased father who was younger in the dream as well. We saw the hawk circling above so I put my finger out for it to perch on. It flew down in slow motion and I watched it’s huge talon wrap gently but not completely around my small finger. It never closed it’s wings so I never felt the full weight of the bird. It leaned it’s beak down to meet my nose and gave me a message that filled me with light and hope and peace. I was full of wonder and now scramble to remember the message. All I have is the feeling it left me with.

  • It’s been a year or so since I’ve seen What I believe to be my spirit animal (Hawk) surrounding me. When I’m on the road or simply taking a walk even When I’m out I see a hawk almost everywhere I go. I’d say up to 70/80% of the time. I’m not distraught or annoyed by it but rather I feel comfort When I see one. Just last night I had a dream about one. At this time I was at home by myself (which i dont really like unless my dog is over visiting from my parents) while my bf was at his night shift job. I had somewhat of an eery and discomfort feeling I decided to just sleep it off and hopefully stay asleep until my bf got Home. I’m asleep and I have a dream of a hawk visiting me in my room. It lands on my arm and I hold out my arm so that it’ll fly away but When it did it would just come back and land on my arm again. I was a little scared of it but assured me I could trust It and that I wasn’t alone. I want to know if there is more to this dream or did I just have it because of the way I was feeling that night ..what do you guys think? :roll:

  • Uuuhhh guys my spirit animal is a cougar and my friends animal is a hawk we work really good together, but recently i have been having dreams about them working together and then out of nowere comes a huge lion, and he attacks us i see us suffer and then my dream ends im not sure if the dream means we are in danger or not but i need help to figure it out, thanks 😕

  • I would appreciate anyone’s input. I cannot remember for the most part, my entire dream, however, what seems to be standing out is that I am standing by a window and a hawk that is circling in the sky grabs my attention. As I began to look out of the window at the circling hawk, a large white bird with a splash of blue on it’s back flies inside of the window and lands right on the window ledge I’m leaning on and is staring at me. As I’m telling my mother, who is in the kitchen about the bird, she asks me if the bird flew in the house or close to the window. I then get her to come to the window and the bird is gone, but within that instant, it flies back into the house but on the inside window ledge. The splash of blue color on it’s back was strange but very beautiful to see on a pure white bird. My mother then instructs me to get it out because it means death but the bird looks at me as I tried to shoot it out the window and flies out on it’s own.
    Again, any input or opinions would greatly be appreciated. Thanx.

    • Not sure What that dream really means but now that I remember my dream I had about a hawk was also white but with some brown Kind of like an eagle but assured that the face, size, and beak was of a hawk . Now I wonder What the color means

  • I went to Sedona and stayed in angel valley with my girlfriend and 5 of our friends. it was our second day there and we were sitting in the center of a labyrinth, the sun was just starting to go down and we all noticed a black hawk like bird flying past us. As the bird flew by the tail started to grow longer and pointy, as if it were trailing behind, then it just disappeared! We all immediately turned to eachother in complete shock wondering if others had seen it, and all seven of us did. I know this sounds crazy, we all decided to be very selective with who we share this story, but I want to find someone who may have some idea as to what this was or means. Thank you,

  • Hi my name is Avery and I would be very grateful for some imput. Recently, a bird (I think it was a hawk) swooped low and landed on our roof. It sat there and then flew away. No one else in my family saw it but me. Does that mean I’m getting a message from the hawk? 😕

  • I have always had a connection with Hawks but this morning I walked outside and when I sneezed 12 to 15 Hawks and several massive Vultures scattered like pigeons. I was surrounded and all their energy was focused on me because I was close the possum they were eating. I could feel an intense power.

    • There were no hawks. They are not scavengers like vultures. Most likely, you saw only vultures… Maybe a couple crows too.

  • Recently my mother passed away and this was very suddenly and unexpected, she was only 53 years old. Well yesterday a Hawk was sitting in front of my kitchen window so I decided to look up the meaning of Hawks and now what this may mean for me and if it has something to do with my Mom. I now realize I have been seeing a Hawk all the time while driving somewhere… especially when I visit her grave. Never have I ever seen one though in my yard until yesterday. Just wondering your insight on this. ❓ ❓

  • Hi I’m Ken my wife is Emma we lost our son a year ago it was his birthday was February 16,he was going to be 39 years old,since he died we have been seeing and notesing hawks in our life,my wife and myself are Christians ,on February 15,2015 we went to the grave sight with boloons and we wrote on them little quotes,and we let them go,they flue off into the distance and I said to my wife and to of chucks close friends wouldn’t it be something if a hawk appeared and out of know where it appeared it was soaring right above it was close and it was beautiful and breath taking,it was spiritual and emotional it was with us for about 10 minutes and then flue off in the same direction as the balloons,all I can say is it was unbelievable!

  • i been seeing a hawk on the side of road for a few days now what does that mean my daughter passed away on these day thank you

  • I had a dream last night that a hawk was sitting in the curb downtown Houston ..as I walked by he screeched at me and then flew onto my back …he wanted a cigarette from my pack ..he took it and then flew back to the ground..he skipped off with it in his beak…It happens to be my birthday …and I quitt smoking 7 yrs ago on my birthday…when I was dreaming I dont think I thought it was my birthday…what does this mean 😆

  • My dad and I were walking from the beach when a hawk flew over us as we watched in aww. One minute later it came back, swooping down right over our heads and unleashed a pile of see weed from it’s grasp in front of us then took off. Of course I had to do research because I felt that it was significant but either way, it definitely was a great start to our day.

  • I had a dream where a giant hawk came and landed on a branch right next to me in the middle of another dream sequence. It had a black face, and then faded more into red-tailed hawk feathers. It had giant orange-red eyes and was communicating something telepathically to me. It was larger than a regular hawk, so I almost didn’t know what it was at first. Then this giant cloud of brown tipped doves came and chased it away. Any ideas what this could mean? :roll:

  • This morning I was at dentist office!! The whole time there was a beautiful HAWK on the telephone line looking at me and around for 45 mins right thru the dentist office window and when i came out… I took photos from my cell phone and that hawk was still there til I got into my car that was right above me!! Wish I could post photos on this site!!

  • This morning when I opened the blinds I saw a hawk perched on my fence. I went and woke up my wife and came back out and it was still sitting there. It then flew to other side of the yard and perched on that fence,. It then proceeded to perch itself on my son’s play set. A few moments later it flew right in front of our window perching itself on the frame of gazebo looking right at us less than 10 ft away. It eventually flew away but I am sure there was some kind of message for me but I don’t know how to interrupt it. Mind you this is a subdivision with over 300 homes so it is a rare sight to say the least. About a year ago when my brother and his wife were leaving to go back to MI (I’m in TN) a deer ran right behind their car, again really odd to see a deer running through a subdivision. Never saw one since. Any ideas what this all means?

  • When my beloved buddy and companion cat died (i had to put him down due to age related neurological disorders) I was both devastated and relieved. Several weeks later i had an extremely vivid dream (first one in months)where i was walking thru a mossy forest and I saw my cat sitting on a moss coverd rock. He purred LOUDLY and then transformed into a hawk and flew off. The dream ended there.

    Since then i have CONSTANTLY seen hawks (Coopers and red tailed) everywhere i go.

    I like to think that my little fur buddy transformed into a hawk spirit after his passing, and that everytime i see ahawk , its him looking out for me.



    • That was definitely a visit from your cat, connecting with you in the dream state. Your cat is watching over you and influences you with the spirit of Hawk. What an amazing gift, and a powerful friend in spirit you have, a majestic being.

  • I just had a dream that I almost died giving birth to my son but a hawk saved my life. He was helping me breathe. What in the world must that mean?? 😯

  • This morning at dawn I was driving just passed a farm field and crossroad when I watched a hawk swoop down and catch its prey then disappearing behind a soil mound. I wanted to know if there was anything significant when sp[otting a hunt in action from one of your totem animals. The Hawk is my Solar Totem and Owl my Shadow Totem. Any thoughts? Thanks :smile:

  • I see hawks all the time. Usually 5 or more a day.

  • My husband and children saw a sad sight regarding a hawk. It was carrying away a kitten (they could do nothing about it). He feels this might have some symbolism to it? Does anyone know what that might be?

  • I have no idea what this may mean but in the last year in a half I have seen a hawk land right by me 3 times. Ive seen them here and there not thinking anything of it. the first time I actually noticed it was almost two years ago I was stopping at a light and the hawk was already perched on the wire to the right of my car. I thought man I wish I had my camera that would have be a cool shot. the second time it happened was in august this year I went to drive under a light post and watched it land right on the light post I was driving under so I just stopped and we had eye contact. then it happened again yesterday. now this is the closest I have seen and had happen in just a few months apart. again I came to a stop sign and saw the hawk maybe 10 feet away. as I turned I slowed down to see him walking on the ground. as I was watching the hawk just lifted and flew straight towards me and over my car and landed right next to my passenger car window perched on a fence. it was beautiful! you could see everything how big his eye was, all his feathers, his talons, his beak. I have never in my life been so close to hawk before. and it just stayed their as I took a picture with my cell phone again had no camera I was not happy about that lol. Ive never seen this happen to me before. what does it mean? why? what are the odds of coming in such a close encounter with a hawk? I think if it was a trained hawk and I stood outside of my car, once he started to fly towards me it looked like if it would have landed right on my arm. so so beautiful and majestic. I have yet to see it this morning but as I started researching this I heard it call or cry out and I knew it was a hawk. I hope I can get some insight soon. this post was very informative and good to read thank you for sharing this :) Please help me understand why this is happening and what should I do? Im very excited to have finally came so close to this beautiful animal that has made its appearance for me to see more. -Adrian

  • There is a stunning grey hawk sitting right outside my window and has been for 20 minutes. Locking gazes is astounding. I just need to tune into his message.

    • Earlier today, I saw several people with my maiden name pop up, MCCABE, on the internet, Facebook, articles. I have been gone all day and just got home to see
      2 hawks in my tree in the backyard???? I feel that I am getting a message, but wish I knew more???? Anyone can help?


    • Well said…just how I felt when a hawk paid a visit to my balcony at 8am this morning. He looked right at me & was there long enough for me to take 4 pictures. I dont recall seeing a hawk this close before.

  • My husband died unexpectantly of a heart attack in his sleep 3 weeks ago. This morning there was a dead hawk on my front steps. He did not appear to have injuries so not sure how he died. Trying really hard to figure out the meaning of this.

  • An injured hawk came to my back yard a year ago. We called wildlife ranger. When ranger arrived, injured hawk was gone, (couldnt fly) 5 of searched in the rain.A few days later injured hawk came to our Front door. We put an open crate over him, fed & watered him. Several days later a ranger took him to a local place that would repair his broken wing & bring him back to area he was found. days later I checked on him & was told he didn’t make it. He was healthy, just a broken wing. I was extremely saddened. Two days ago a beautiful hawk landed in perfect view on our back pool screen top, stayed for awhile. Knew I was taking pics & admiring, finally flew. Also a (tiny) turtle came to my front door @new house, different story. I just feel these hawks have a significant meaning-to do w/ My grown daughter who has been struggling for over a year. Question! What am I not doing or understanding?!! I gave the first hawk up for better care :(

    • Carrie,
      You did the right thing. I too had an injured hawk come to me for help. It had an injured wing. Wing injuries are extremely hard to fix. More than likely they will never be able to fly again. Hawks are flight. The hunt in flight. They soar high above us and must NE able to perch in the trees. A hawk who cannot fly looses its freedom and thus is no longer able to care for itself. When a rehaber takes care of a bird, they must decide whether or not they can continue to live a good life. Some birds may be able to stay in care and become education birds, but it is not the same life as being free to fly high. You made the right decision. The bird I found was also euthanized. Two days later her family came and circled the area where she had been and called. I knew her spirit was free to fly again. Sometimes, the best thing we can do as human is allow the beautiful spirit trapped inside a broken body to be free. I know volunteer at a raptor care facility. Thank you for caring about these wonderful birds.

  • Hi everyone!
    I was on Assateague Island at the top of the lighthouse when two or three hawks flew out of the trees. I wasn’t too surprised at that but each of them got really close to the lighthouse. Does that mean anything? Then later I was on a boat ride and a hawk swooped down and flew with the boat for a couple feet. Does that mean anything? Thanks for any imput.

  • i was driving and i believe it was hawks……the first one got inline with my car and was flying the same direction the 2 came from the right of me out of nowhere and did a complete turn,the 3rd one flew over my car going in the opposite direction ….not sure what any of this means

    • this was all in about a ten mile raduis not all at once

  • i work diligently on expanding my spiritually. About 15 or so years I realized that when I had difficult and challenging decisions to make I was making them using “my first mind” which I believe is the universe leading me on my path. I have found that to be absolutely true for me. After I have made my difficult decision,I always see a hawk and many time more than one. In my spirituality i believe that the hawk is an answer from my higher power.
    I have also shared the hawk stories with others that are overwhelmed and they too have found that the hawk is a spirit guide for them as well. We are currently on our third generation of hawk lovers. My friends 3 year granddaughter had heard us speaking of Hawks, and she began pointing out Hawks to us. She showed her grandma a hawk sitting on a tree at her daycare on the first day for her. Grandma was so relieved that she cried all the way home. Thank you for my wonderful. Hawks. Many times I will put out kinnic,if I am home and have access to it.

  • So I saw a hawk just before my mom and I went to ride. my mom got bucked off but not hurt. when we returned home the hawk was flying around my house.. what was he telling me?

  • I had a dream where I found myself in the middle of a field of tall grass that was surrounded by trees. I was leaning against an unfamiliar truck and I felt I was dove hunting but there were no doves flying. I could feel the frustration of a slow hunt and sat down next to the truck and looked straight up. First, I saw one hawk circling, then 2 more, then 5 more and soon the sky was filled with soaring hawks. It was at this time, I heard something behind me, turned and noticed 3 people approaching me and the dream suddenly ended. They were hooded and I don’t remember noticing their faces.

    • Hello Tom: I believe the message in this dream is that whatever it is you are searching for – you must look inside yourself to find it. To find it externally will only give you more of the same.

  • My dream: I was looking out at a city in the daytime and was admiring the beautiful sky and large skyscrapers way off in the distance. I decided to take a picture and spotted a hawk carrying a dog in the frame. I looked directly at this, not from the camera lense and began yelling. Suddenly the dog appeared on the ground and came towards me as I called for him. As I led him inside to safety I noticed his collar and in between looking for his name and talking with him a little boy appeared…I went from being able to hear his response in my mind to talking with the boy about what his name was…to suddenly reading what his name was on a piece of paper. I asked the boy to see where the Hawks claws had latched on to his back…and once again the dog appeared and was running up and down stairs from a home I had lived in years ago. Earlier last night I had been cleaning out my garage, had gone through paperwork from years ago when I had some legal issues…During which I lived in that same house. Seeing those papers reminded me of my previous failures and poor mental health. I’ve grown as a person since that time but am curious if there’s a connection. I have also become more active lately in supporting animal rescues. Thanks for your input.

    • Hello Suz: This dream is significant in that the Hawk is letting you know that the message of the dream is important. Your personal mental health journey since you left the home in your past has been significant – however the dog in your dream is saying that you waver between being true to yourself in your decisions and simply doing what others ask of you in an effort to make friends or be liked by others. In other words Hawk is saying that you must put yourself first in order to gain the respect of your peers. There is no such thing as failure …. it’s simply a lesson learned and we move on.

  • omg you are so right thank you thank you I’m trying to be happy I feel the kids won’t unless I am , I just want everything to be ok and everyone to be happy…

  • I’m Chumash & Mescalero Apache Native American.I’ve had this connection with Red Tail Hawks. usually when I’m going through a trial in my life. On one occasion my husband & I got into an altercation due to his infidelity &while I was driving to my mother’s, I was driving past a cemetery & I was stopped in front of the cemetery due to a red light, a red tail hawk flew to center divider island big & beautiful. Starring @ me spread his wings which seemed to be a long time but was only a few minutes then flew off. I did not realize how big they really are, never seen one that close. I have moved since then, but see these red tail hawks often usually driving & another occasion when my nephew was killed flying along beside my car 😎 😛 😛 :roll:

  • Last summer, I noticed three very young hawks learning to hunt around where I work. I lived in an apartment less than two miles away, so I saw them often at home as well. This summer, I’ve noticed all three of them are still hunting here on property. One of them actually interacted with me at work- he led me to the woods on the edge of the property one night, where I got to see a mother doe and her two young babies.

    Recently I’ve also noticed another young hawk flying and living around my new home several miles away. He is beautiful. This afternoon, on my way to work, I caught sight of him flying over me less than 15 feet above my car. He flew toward me, and when he reached my car, he abruptly turned around and flew next to my car for a few moments before he ascended into the sky over the pasture.

    I’m fairly certain, much to my surprise, that he is my spirit animal. He’s been living in the woods surrounding my house for several months now, and I see him perched in trees in the front and back constantly. He seems very companionable, never flies away when I see him or call to him or approach him.

  • I woke up this morning, went to the back door and saw something sitting, a few feet from me, on the rainbarrel. It was a hawk! I’ve never seen one up close before and knew it was a messenger from the spirit world. I came to the internet to research the meaning of the hawk and was happy to find this site, as well as a few others. To me the presence of the hawk is a reminder of my own ability to see clearly and sharply, often from a higher perspective. I knew I had this ability but recently had fallen into the habit of looking to others for wisdom. Hawk is reminding me of my own clear, sharp vision. Thank you, hawk! I will pay attention! ::

  • Well I lost my husband young 5 yrs ago I’m 42 now with 3 kids by him, my sister keeps seeing him in a dream the last one he’s pointing to a hawk in a book the pages turn from a bear,to a dear and keep flipping back to the hawk..I have had a lot of trouble since he died ,with depression,and drugs,and guilt, because I kicked my husband out of.our home he died 2 months later it really has been horrible..I feel the hawk means something why is he pointing at it..Oh I don’t do drugs anymore,and my sister says he is happy and seems like he is very wise in dreams,which makes me happy..Just wondering what someone thinks this means..

    • Hello Yvette: The symbology in this dream is very clear. Hawk is the messenger that is saying that you have to go inward (bear) in order to look at your emotions and thoughts. The deer is about going easy on your self. Letting go of guilt, self chastisement, and anger towards decisions you made in the past. They are history – and continuing that path will certainly not serve your higher purpose.

      • Hello Silken Raven I’m so glad you replied.. I wonder why my sister has the dreams and not me, she feels my husband is a strong spirit watching over me and that he’s telling her that he is ..I dream of him often but I dream he is here still but in my dreams he is unsure of something that’s the only word I can think of he is in my dreams.Any thoughts on that?? Never at peace Yvette

        • Hello Yvette: The dreams go to your sister because the volume of your self blame refuses to allow that kind of message to get through your psyche. The dreams that you do have of him are safe in allowing you to stay exactly where you are with your emotions. You have blocked those actual feelings so strongly out of your own fear of feeling them. Your signature says it all – “never at peace”. The reality is that you deserve peace and the only way that you can regain that state is by allowing yourself to feel emotions again. The burdens that you carry can be lifted by feeling your emotions. Stop punishing yourself.
