Are you exercising compassion and patience in mental, spiritual and emotional areas? This creature will teach how to incorporate new beginnings with faith and trust in the process.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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