Animal Signs and Symbols
Forgive me if this topic has been covered (I searched and saw no other thread).
I have been looking into animal symbolism, and by that I mean seeing animals doing unusual things or seeing them at unusual times of the day and deciphering what that may mean for you, loved ones, etc. I have a few books that cover this topic, and it does seem to depend on the tribe you subscribe to as to what "spotting" them may mean.
So I'd actually like to hear stories or input of others when it comes to the reading of animals. Have you ever had anything unusual happen to you (or see any unusual animal behavior) that seemed to directly correlate with an instance in your life? Was the spotting of said animal a good or bad omen? Or did you never find out exactly what it meant and hopefully someone wiser on here can read your story and give the right advice/input?
I tend to have very up-close encounters with nature, and never can seem to figure out what it means.
One of my stories centered around my parents house. They live in the country in a wooded area that tends to see a lot of deer, birds, etc. I was sitting on their deck sunning myself in a patio chair when a hummingbird flew directly at and in front of me. It sort of hovered in front of me for a few seconds, then circled around me a lot, zipping this way and that when. Then...it left! I felt it was so unusual considering the nature of that bird but never quite came to any definitive conclusions as to what it was trying to tell me.
So...stories? Advice? Experiences? Belief system? Anything you can give at all would be appreciated.
