A happy birthday message from Mom & Dad

It’s been quiet throughout Mom’s birthday and although I felt deeply connected to her, there was no sign of any sort on her birthday. Just silence and the emptiness of her gone.

You can read about Monday, my birthday here, but the evening brought a little surprise I wasn’t expecting. Sitting in front of the little log cabin, at a moment of peace, I noticed a small black feather at my feet. My thoughts immediately drifted to Dad and I said that it was a happy birthday greeting from him. It made me smile and comforted the way I always feel when I find feathers.

“When feathers appear your loved ones are near.”

Later that evening, back at our place, a white feather was waiting for me on the floor. I have no idea how we could have missed it. Immediately I knew that this was a birthday greeting from Mom. This was my first year as an orphan, someone no longer blessed with the presence of their parents, but these two little feathers completed my day, making me feel loved and thought of enough to send a sign my way for a happy birthday.

The meaning of black feathers – Dads message

A black feather reminds you of the presence of your guardian angel who protects and gives you more spiritual wisdom and power. It could be a sign telling you to take a break from work and meditate on everything happening in your Life. When found in times of crisis it passes a message of support.

The meaning of white feathers – Moms message

White is a symbol of purity, GA it’s and protection. If you find white feathers it means that your angel is trying to reassure you of his presence with you. Your late loved ones could also send a message to you through white feathers to reassure you that they are doing well. So whenever you find a white feather just smile because you have got the blessings of the angels.



We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. A hard day for you I am sure Rhapsody, with such a wonderful gifting from the angels. It is lovely when we are reminded by those who are no longer on our plane that we are not orphans or alone.
