Dove Meaning and Messages

If Dove symbolism comes fluttering into your day to day life, she may be reminding you that to soar, you must know when to move your wings and when to allow the wind to take you to new heights. Furthermore, this spirit animal teaches that if you were to sit on a branch looking at the sky and hoping the wind will pick you up, you would never move. In other words, the Dove meaning in this message, like the Coral dream, is that you must surrender and allow the wind to support your wings. Get moving so that you can experience the exhilaration of flying higher and higher.

Alternatively, in this case, Dove’s meaning could also be letting you know that you need to stop and take a few deep breaths. Therefore you must let go of the turmoil that is currently surrounding you and take the time to find peace within you. Hence, what you see right now is your reality shifting in ways you never thought possible and that what you are indeed looking for is just around the corner. In this case, dove meaning shows that most chaos happens just before your dreams come true.

Also, Dove symbolism can be a message that you need to purify your thoughts. You are attracting what you don’t want in your life by focusing on it.

Dove symbolism can also be heralding an end of a problematic cycle in your life, thereby announcing a time of new worlds opening up to you. In other words, there are possibilities of a new romance, new friendships, and new beginnings on the horizon for you.

Dove Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Dove totem, are positively one of the most gentle and giving persons on the planet. Moreover, like the Skunk, there is a sense of innocence about them that attracts many people to them. Occasionally, there are times that people with Dove totem have difficulty with others, as they tend to take advantage of your pacifistic ways. Others will also try to take advantage of the calm and serenity that is natural to your being. People with this spirit animal totem are also a natural nurturer and make an excellent parent.

Folks with the Dove totem bring wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and creativity to any task. They teach others how to live a loving, faithful, passionate life. They are living proof that a life of contentment and happiness is possible.

Dream Interpretation

In general, a Dove dream can symbolize peace, tranquility, harmony, affection, and innocence. In particular, white dove dreams represent loyalty, love, simplicity, gentleness, and friendships. Your vision may also signify a message or blessing from the Holy Spirit. You have most likely released your thoughts of hate and revenge and found a place of peace and love in your heart.

When your dream has a pair that is mating and building a nest, like a Cow totem, it symbolizes a happy home life filled with love, tranquility, pleasure, and security.

A vision that involves a green bird of this type is a reminder that we are all on a mission of peace, and being at peace with yourself is a significant step toward healing. If the bird is yellow, it symbolizes a new friendship that will soon take root.

Occasionally, like the Owl, a Dove dream can be a prophecy of things to come. Be sure to pay attention to the other elements of your vision so that you can combine it with this bird’s dream symbolism.

  1. I dreamt of a white dove coming out of a blue light and hovering in it. It was only temporary does anyone know what this means thanks

  2. Last night i dreamt of a white-grey dove transforming in front of me into my guardian angel. He then asked me if I was alright or why I am so upset. The weird thing is, he didn’t have wings or anything just a normal person but I could see light grey particles around him. Which told me that only I could see him. I was worried what other people might think in that moment, because I’m talking to myself. I was so confused and felt kinda dizzy so I couldn’t answer him. The next thing I remember was that I woke up really tired and exhausted. Can someone tell me what the meaning of the dream is?

  3. One dove land in our house spend about three days there , on the third day another two dove came to our house and took the first dive away, what this means

  4. I found 2 baby doves huddled at the bottom of a tree. Their nest had been blown out in heavy wind. Nobody else seemed to notice them. What do you think this means?

  5. Does anyone know what this dream might mean..I purchased a butterfly plant and when I was taken it out of the bag to show my daughter 4 doves appeared in my hands ( holding them)

  6. i keep seeing :11 after the hour almost every day please who can explain and notice i asked this on 1/11/2022 is this a coincidence?

    1. The number 11 is for twinflames.You are one half of a twin soul. Twinflames are two different persons who shares the same soul. They go into union to serve their purpose together. 8:11 for example, means you are on the right path to TwinFlame reunion. look up the angel number meaning for the numbers you see repeatedly.The date 1.11.2022 represents an open portal for new beginnings. Hope this information helps.

  7. i was in a dream or trance i lay in my fathers room sleeping on another bed and i saw my self facing the roof and i saw a white dove peck a star in the sky and it came down and hit my face and i felt like i was high or ecstatic and had this feeling of joy or happiness i could not explain please who can explain this phenomenon to me ….

  8. A few days ago, a mourning dove kept flying into my backyard, picked up a twig, and then flew away. It happened about 5 times. I think it was building a nest, but it was cool!

    Also, I was at the lake yesterday, and every time I go there I see a flock of pigeons (they are “rock doves”) doing pigeon things, and that’s ordinary, but there was this one pigeon I saw that had a white head and tail, but normal wings!

    What could these mean?

  9. Thank you so much for informing me that the dove spirit animal represents a person who is a natural nurturer and a giving person. My mother passed away yesterday, and she was one of the most amazing people I have ever met. She was so selfless and loving. I want to show her that I noticed and appreciate that love. I wonder if we could do some kind of dove release at her memorial service to represent her and her moving on to the next life.

    1. For around 3 weeks now a beautiful white Dove has sat guard on my roof watching over , He arrives at dusk and stays all night every night no matter what the weather is . Last night he sat over 12 hours in rain and snow I even tried to entice him down to take him somewhere warm inside but it was to no avail he is there now in the bitter cold. I have never seen anything like this before he sits at the edge looking down in the dark as I walk in the garden now and again for fresh air .

  10. a dove flew into my house yesterday and a magpie flew into my house today, so should i be worried or not?

  11. I had a dream of two white doves I was sitting in a filed filled with flowers at night and I looked to the sky and two very big white doves came down to me both doves had something to give me one dove gave me a cross filled with diamonds and the other dove gave me a ring filled with diamonds

  12. Please help me with the meaning of this dove encounter:

    I was walking my grandson today around the lake. We walked around a turn and he sat to play with some rocks. I noticed a white dove just walking around pecking on the ground. At first I thought it was a chicken because of the way it was pecking but it was too small to be a chicken and there are no “wild” chickens running around. In fact I’ve never seen a wild chicken in my life, they’ve all been in coops.

    Anyway. I swear this bird was watching us. It is a beautiful day here so many people were on the lake, walking, jogging and riding bikes. They all whizzed past the bird and NOT ONE person notice it and it did not move when anyone went by.

    I took out my camera to try and get pictures but my grandson would not get close, he didn’t want to leave the spot where he was happily playing. I finally got him to get up..we walked right up to the bird and it looked at us. I got a few pictures but it is hard with my grandson running away from me. So we kept walking and then eventually turned back. The bird was still there. We walked up to it again. It was SNOW WHITE with RED EYES. An Albino dove. BEAUTIFUL. I kept looking at us and I was thanking it and felt it was a sign, then my grandson tried to pet it and it walked away pretty swiftly. Disappeared. But it NEVER flew off.

    Our entire path was lined with little white feathers. I picked one up and it stuck to me. Like really stuck. I blew it and it landed on my grandson. I left it there. It stayed on him until we got home then fell off of him.

    I felt this must be an angel or a sign or something. So I looked up the spiritual meaning for white dove. Where there were a trillion meanings and they were all GOOD. But the thing that really struck me is everything I found on them said they are EXTREMELY rare and you will most likely never see one in the wild. Well then I thought, “Wow, I’ve never seen a white dove. I’ve read about them, and seen pictures, but never a live one in the wild up close”. Then I really got excited.

    What do you think???

  13. I frequently hear doves outside in the morning and find their cooing somehow soothing yet sometimes mournful. I hadn’t heard them in the last few days.
    This morning the cooing was so very close as if on my roof perhaps. I looked outside to find a single dove perched on my windowsill. She slowly turned towards me as if to acknowledge my presence. Then she turned in the other direction and continued her soft cooing.
    Shortly she was joined by another dove. He lightly tapped her head with his beak. After a few minutes, one by one, they flew away.
    About two hours later I hear a dove cooing again close by this time in another room. I looked out the window to see a single dove sitting on the roof/overhang. She turned to look at me, sat a few minutes more then flew away.
    Not sure if there is a message in their visits (I’ve been seeing different birds and butterflies in my tiny garden lately), but being able to see them, hear them and have them visit has brought me joy.
    Searching about their symbolism brought me here.
    I’ve been contemplating a few “important changes” in my life this weekend…moving, buying a home, how to earn extra income. Wondering if the visiting doves are related.

  14. I was driving down the road with a person (now my friend )whom I had just barley met earlier that morning . It was about 3 in the afternoon and when I turned north down a random street all of a sudden 3 white doves flew out of a green tree top all in a diagnail line flying towards the east .. And within 15 seconds after that another pair of 3 white doves flew out of the exact same tree top … As I was in ahhh and kinda shock … She said that’s a sign for u a sign of something big something good i replayed “yeah I know , but of what though?”… I would like to know what the meaning of me seeing 2 sets or pairs of 3 snow white turtle doves means ??? I did think of the story from the Bible with Noha and the Arc when I saw the first set of 3 white turtle doves … But then to see yet another set … I was and still am flabbergasted!!!! Please help me understand …? I do feel like my life is going to get better I mean it’s been rough the past month or 2 since I saw them but now I’m feeling and seeing that things are , can, will only go up in the positive matter for me …. Any advise or input at this time would be helpful …. Thank you …

    1. My life hasn’t been that great, graduated and still couldn’t find a job, i decided to give my life to Christ and prayed everyday, i decided to apply for masters with my lower class and ofcourse it would be difficult to gain admission, so this one time, i was farming and i heard the sound of doves and i felt so good, no one seemed to concentrate on them but when i checked my mail later on, i had received my calling later
      There is power in praying and God finds a way to give us hope

  15. It started all of a sudden I started seeing two doves fight each other, I saw this like 5-7 times then i never saw the doves for some weeks then I saw them again and they weren’t fighting again… A few weeks later I felt an urge to go out while I was coming back I something kept making me look up and I saw FOUR WHITE DOVES IN TWO PAIRS FLYING AROUND ABOVE AND IN FRONT OF US… the Driver noticed I was staring out of the vehicle up and smiling he tried to look up but with the Expression on his face he Did not see the DOVES …. please what does this mean?

  16. I have just seen a dove twice today. It kept on flocking into the house. Even when I tried to get close to it, it hardly flew away. Since morning I have just been trying to find out what the dove symbolizes and this page or blog just seems to resonate with what my life has been all about lately.

    I have two Doves building a nest on top of my floodlight in front of my garage. Time for a new beginning! Last year a bird tried to build a nest in the same spot and I took down the floodlight! This time I think I’m going to help the Doves make their nest!

  18. From our back window we have a male and female more dove that come and visit every day by staying on our table our doors, they have mated and then they have looked into our window if our back door and now we have Canadian geese on top of our home. I’m not sure what all of this means but we are so blessed to enjoy our visitors every day. Could you please tell me what all of this means!

  19. I just saw 3 flying above me. Never seen that before. Ironically, my life has been somewhat hellish the past few years. I’m hoping and praying that it was a sign that my current situation with my fiance will improve. My relationships have been in turmoil over these last couple years. Starting a completely different job next week which I’m taking that as a positive. When I had met him in 2014 the stars aligned. I was getting so many positive universal signs and was so confident in where this was heading. It was as if I woke up one day and everything had aligned for me finally…. These past few years have been more than challenging and have had to deal with things most couples don’t have to deal with. He has children and one of them moved in with us and has caused me/us hell with manipulation and strained my relationships with family/people, especially my partner. I’m just hoping that I can turn this relationship around and get it back on track where I want it and need it to be. Ugh…. life.

    1. As i read your message I have to say it seems to be centered on the “ME” and what “I” want. Perhaps you have been given this as a test. Consider the child in this relationship. He or she will always be part of your partner’s life. Remember blood is thicker than water. His loyalties lie with the child first. Be passive and not demanding. This child is upset due to the changes in its life. It has to adapt.
      And you need to be kind and loving no matter what. Only then will the situation be resolved in your favor. Remember what YOU want and what YOU need are two different things.
      God bless

    2. I agree with Alex.
      I too went through a similar “relationship” the lasted far too long. I was far too naive (not necessarily to young) to be in a lasting relationship. Like you, I believed that “I” deserved to be considered ahead of the child.
      Children are a blessing, if you treat the child with kindness and love “he/she” will appreciate you and your relationship with their parent.
      Make whatever efforts you are able to really connect with the child, everyone will benefit.
      GOD Bless, Sandra

    3. While I appreciate the other responses to your troubles with your partner’s child, please keep in mind that the two of you are to raise the child together. You need to be on the same page as each other, and any matters pertaining to the child should be handled together as a team and outside of the presence of the child. I was raised by my father and stepmother. Initially, I despised her and made their relationship difficult. My father would listen to my complaints, but he didn’t take sides. Instead, he discussed them with my stepmom and they handled matters as a united front and with love and compassion. I came to learn about their ways of handling conflict within our home when I got older and eventually married a man with two kids (9 and 13). I tried handling situations in a healthy, productive way just as I had been raised. I was loving, respectful, cared for them, listened, gave advice, etc. Without my husband’s support, however, the problems worsened. He wasn’t a parent and went so far as to openly scold me in front of them after one of their many blatant lies, thievery, etc. Of course, they were reaching difficult ages for anyone. I asked my husband several times in private to discuss such matters with me so that we could address them together. He never did. Long story short, his son became abusive as he neared his mid and late teen years and his daughter continued to tell even more absurd lies and steal from me. Both adults must handle situations involving children as the adults and in a family-oriented way. Yes, the child is important. Your relationship is important too. And, you, as an individual, are important.

  20. I saw a dove flying above my head and right from her middle to her feet, it was of a woman’s (in trouser, on belt and sandals) then she landed on the roof of a mosque and turned fully into a down putting on a hijab and payed her greetings. on seeing this, I bowed down to the sun and I started praying like a Muslim ( I’m a Christian by the way) and while at it, people were looking at me.
    then, I walked into a mosque to listen to an imam preach, sat beside my late Dad and listen to the imam talk about my research which wowed the audience…. then I woke up to an Islamic call to prayer by 6am

  21. I was traveling and suddenly I got into Taj Mahal and I saw two doves, one male and one female. The male dove was hanging with a rope around his neck and the female was crying and saying to me to help her beloved one. I thought the male dove was dead. But as tried to help, I removed the rope from his neck and he was so relieved and again for his life back. They were both so happy. They thanked me for helping them. I played and talked with them. I was so happy that I got a chance to help them and they were behaving like they are a friend of me. I was giving a sense of relaxation to them. And then I become a person who had no fear of birds and could understand their feelings. I was so happy.
    can anyone make me understand the meaning of this dream. because this dream had everything. the she bird was crying but was happy after her beloved one was helped. am not able to understand the total meaning.

    1. It could be a message for you to see that we are all one, both the human and non-human nations. We are all souls with depth and we all deserve to be treated as friends. Perhaps it’s a call to evaluate how you are treading this earth and interacting with all its inhabitants.

      That’s my take on it at least. Cheers
