The White Dove As A Messenger Of The Dead

white dove coincidence

Dan left the following comment on my blog post Receiving White Feathers From The Dead. It's not strictly about white feathers - though it is in a way, but the feathers are still attached to a white dove.

Mike,

I have a story about a white dove if doves mean anything.

One day I came home from work and a white dove was perched on the steps that lead up to the front door of my house. No doves or birds of any kind were ever previously on my steps.

This white dove would not move to let me by. I made noises, waved my hand, stared at the dove ... nothing happened.

Finally I went in the back door of my house. I looked out the window and this one lone white dove was still on the front steps at 4pm and 5pm and 6pm.

At 7pm that night I received an urgent phone call saying my aunt had suddenly passed away that afternoon. I looked out the window one last time and the dove flew away never to come back at all on any day.

I dont know for sure if that means anything but I think it does.

Thanks,
Dan

I think that Dan's comment speaks for itself so I'll simply add three references to white doves.

~ 1 ~ According to Symbolic and Mythological Animals by J. C. Cooper, "The white dove is one of the most venerated creatures, symbolizing the spirit, the soul, bringing the spirit down to the earth and the transit between one state and another."

~ 2 ~ During the canonization ceremony of Christian Saints, white doves are released to represent the soul rising to heaven.

~ 3 ~ In Christian Iconography, a white dove symbolizes the Holy Spirit.

  1. White doves or owls, it seems that birds are often messengers about a loved one passing on. I'm glad Dan sensed it and wrote you.

    1. My mom passed away May 2014 from cancer. While she was ill. My family and I watched Touched By An Angel every day, sometimes twice daily. For those who are not familiar, its about for Angels that God sends to earth to help ppl fix there lives. This movie always come on with Singing by Dela Reese and a lady letting go of a white scarf and it turns into a white Dove. Sometimes my mom would be sleeping but when she hear this show coming on she would wake up singing. My passed around 3a.m. a day after Mothers Day and 2 days before her bday. Later that same day my mom passed all of our family was sitting outside in our gargage and just all over the lawn was family just reminiscing. All of a sudden my daughter and I see this all white dove flying very low in a circle around the yard. It flew around the 3 consecutive times before it flew across the street andbset on a telephone phone pole facing our house. We knew she was sending us message the she was at peace. That was the most comforting moment of my life.

  4. I went today and placed a memorial garden stake on my best friends grave who died two months ago today (I just now realized that the date was significant). While I was there I prayed and asked to feel her presence. I wanted assurance that she was in heaven and happy now. When I left, I did not feel any particular assurance, other than having a good feeling from visiting her burial site and placing a memorial with her photo there so people can remember her beautiful smile. When I returned home, there was a white bird sitting near my driveway between her old house (we used to be neighbors) and mine. When I got out of my car to investigate (I was afraid it was someones pet bird) I discovered it was a white dove. I immediately felt assurance that my friend was in heaven and she had sent this white dove as a message to let me know that she was in heaven and all is well.

  5. So, My husband and I where on the way to see my mother and saw three doves flying in formation. Does anyone know what that means? The three doves where flying so close to my car almost had to pull over. I was so afraid they where going to hit my car but they stayed right on the side of it.

    1. David, about a month ago on a Friday morning my husband witnessed about one hundred large white doves and one white pigeon hovering over my home property, they were on the electrical wires , poles and trees for about ten minutes, all passerbys were admiring the scene, my husband came in to the house to tell me about the beautiful site he had just witnessed and he just thought it was a good sign. I wonder what it really meant?

  8. Hi Mike Perry. It was the HOLY SPIRIT. The HOLY SPIRIT coming as a DOVE is not a Roman Catholic symbol, its a Biblical Christian symbol. Read John's Gospel Chapter 1. Hope to hear from you soon. GOD BLESS, David.

  10. This past saturday 1/19/2013 my mother past away. Yesterday My dad and I went to the front yard of there house to walk her dog and reminiscing the memories of my mom. All of a sudden out of know where a white dove comes towards us and flaps its wings in a still motion. My dad and I then look at one another and said wow where did the white dove come from ( we live in Las Vegas so you dont see doves like that) as we looked back the dove vanished. I told my sisters of the dove and one of my sisters say the dove the day before. I believe this was a sign from or for my mom letting us know she is ok and she is at peace and in heaven. It was just truely remarkable.

    1. I also live in Las Vegas, NV, born and raised here, I have never seen a white dove in my life until a couple months ago a white dove walked right up to me and my husband on our porch, tame as could be, we fed him some crackers I had and he flew away, he has come back every single day since then, I now buy him bird seed! He is a pure white dove and I have NEVER seen one here in Vegas before, we named him Peace and he still lives wild but comes to my porch for breakfast or lunch everyday still! I am not sure what to think of that either!

  11. July 2008 My step father died of a very aggressive cancer, melanoma. A few hours before his death, I looked out his window at the hospice center he was at. I noticed a few white doves near a base of a small tree. After I left, a few hours later I got a call from my mom that he had passed. Latter that evening I went for a walk with my family down the street, looked up and noticed a few white doves flying above me. To the day, I do not recall seeing white doves flying around. I always wondered about this dove sighting experience. Just thought I would share.

  13. Mike my friend told me how her auntie and uncle were being harassed by a young rowdy anti-social drug dealing family and their customers living across the road so I visualised the auntie's place guarded by two huge angels at the front door and two at the back gate but placed an identical angelic quartet guarding the other hostile household on the principle those who menace others often do so out of a deepseated fear of their own vulnerability. Anyway by a curious coincidence white feathers started getting found round the house and things calmed down.

  15. A friend of mine passed away about 15 months ago, he died fairly young at 32 years old. He was hit by a car while walking home one day. Yesterday would have been his 34th birthday (7/1/13) and I posted a message on his facebook page that went something like this: Happy Birthday! Please show me a sign that you have received this message.
    As I was driving to work this morning a big white dove appeared out of nowhere. I thought I was going to hit the bird as it caught my attention but it swooped to the left and flew closely alongside me for a few seconds as I drove down the highway. It was there for a bit and then vanished as mysteriously as it had appeared, I turned my head to see where it was and quickly looked for it in my rear view mirrors but it was gone. When it disappeared the first thing that came to my mind was my friend. Yes it may have been a coincidence but I have never seen any doves in this town. It was the biggest dove I had ever seen. It was almost the size of a seagull but I’m 100% sure it was not a seagull; it was definitely a dove and possibly a sign from my friend that he indeed had received my “Happy Birthday!” message.

  19. A couple of years ago my favorite uncle passed away. The funeral was held in the south. On the way to the Church I noticed a flock of about a dozen white doves fly accross our path. When I saw them I got the chills....I thought it was because I've never even seen a dove in real life. I mentioned this to the rest of the passengers and they thought it felt strange also. Once we got to the Church and the doors opened there it was....a dove white casket that gave me the same chill. I immediately knew it was a sign from my uncle telling me he was at peace.....I couldn't do any thing but smile through the tears....I was so glad to find this site of confirmation of the meaning of white doves.

  20. Yesterday, I took my dog to our favorite place- a long walk with thousands of acres of fields bordering a shrub-lined pathway to a large lake. It is a place that has brought much enjoyment to both of us many times. This time though I saw something pure white sitting two hundred yards away in a field of grass. I took my dog,Jack, into the field and walked towards it. When we got to within four feet and Jack finally realized what it was he lunged at it and it finally took off. It did something very unusual though. It flew in circles above us and then landed nearby. This time though Jack was unconcerned and continued on his way towards the lake. I went over to the spot I first saw the dove to see if there was a nest or some reason for it being in the middle of that field that would draw him towards it but found nothing. The dove was nearby and stayed where it was. I turned to follow Jack and in afterthought pulled out my phone to take a picture. When I turned to take one,the dove was gone. Beltsville Lake is now my "place of peace".

  21. I took a trip with my family to california. As we were heading home I recieved a call that my mother had passed, it was somewhat expected. As my husband and I drove down the highway I saw a flash of white and large flapping wings fly across the road nearly overhead diagonaly. I looked over at my husband and he said I saw it too. We talked for about 5 minutes joking about how it probably was a garbage bag or something. Then all of a sudden from the other side of the road came the large flapping wings they looked huge definitely not the size a dove should be but the way the wings were and the tail shape I knew. I felt a sense of peace I knew it was my moms way of letting me know her spirit had began its journey. I will never forget the surreal feeling.

  22. My mother in law came to live with us in May 2013 when she was diagnosed with brain cancer. She passed away on 7/23/13 (1 month ago today).
    EVERY DAY since she passed, there is a white dove who comes at about 5:00 to 5:30 p.m. and lands on the neighbors roof, which overlooks the window of the bedroom where my MIL passed. She leaves at about 7:30 every morning but is always there when I get home from work. This is still going on TODAY (although I am a little nervous as 30 days could be significant?). This is especialy odd as I live on a salt water canal and there are several ospreys (bird of prey, similar to a hawk)that live nearby. My wife is totally convinced that the bird is her mother's spirit and talks to it every day. I on the other hand am very skeptical of symbolism like this, but I do have to admit I am baffled that it is happening. My only problem with this is I am not sure how my wife will handle it when the dove doesn't return one day. Just thought I would share that with you and we will see what happens with the white dove!.

  23. While working as a security guard i spotted a white dove, that day was a monday. I asked my co workers if they noticed the white dove and no one had. I was seeing this dove every day for five days. Knowing dove is a sign of the Holy spirit it made me feel as tho God is with me. On the seventh day which was a Sunday, i found the white dove, it had died. Monday comes and my life as i knew it had changed. Not for the good, but bad. Husband started having legal troubles, i lost my job, and i am about to lose my home. Through all this i know the Lord is guiding me, giving me hope. I know that this to shall pass.

  24. I would like to share that shortly after my nephew was killed in Afghanistan by an IED, I was having a terrible time with the acceptance. I was sitting outside on the porch the looks out over the beautiful desert mountains. There are always lots of birds, but never, ever, have I seen pure white birds like the birds that visited me this day. There were about 11 or 12 of the most pure white doves that flew almost in pattern w/ each other and they just circled, played, zipped by me almost close enough to touch. They froliced for a good long time, I even was able to take a picture w/ the camera from my cell phone. They were beautiful, they were majestic, and I was immediately filled with joy, love, and the comfort knowing it was Sean, it was my nephew. I know that I know, that I know.... I was so touched by his ability to find a way to express his presence and I have never seen them again. It was just a moment that was set aside for me and I am so greatful for that moment. Some people look at me funny or may not even believe me but when I show them the picture, it makes the unbelieveable ...believeable! Do you think that I am right to feel that this was his way of giving me peace?

    1. That's a lovely story and if it gives you peace then it doesn't matter what others may think.

      When I have lost loved ones my wife and I see white feathers - I have written about this on my blog and the feathers have given me comfort.

      I think those who have moved on can give us signs such as white doves or feathers - and in other ways too.

      Thank you for sharing.

    2. A few weeks ago, I was at the cemetery where my wife is buried. I bought new flowers for her grave, put some elbo grease into cleaning off her marker and played "our wedding song", 'Memories of us' by Keith Urban afterwards on my tablet at her grave.. told her this is for you baby. A short few minutes later in the tree beside her grave, a little bird of some kind started singing, then it left. To me this was a sign from God and my wife 'Robin', that she was "pleased"..

  25. When I was a toddler, I was playing in my grandmother's room while she napped. I looked out the window and saw a big white dove on the ledge. I called to my mother and aunt to show them. I had never seen a white pigeon. They, being Irish and knowledgeable of omens, got very agitated. Later that day my grandmother passed away.

  26. Last year my uncle was diagnosed with lung cancer. He only had one month to live. Almost everyday of that month my brother and I would see a white dove among pigeons on the next street from our house. Every morning they were always on the lawn of a different home. The dove was never on our street until one afternoon after picking up my brother from school, this dove flew from our driveway across the windshield of my car. A few nights later, I sensed someone waking me up to pray and an almost audible voice saying "It's time". I fell back asleep and I had 3 dreams within a dream. Then later my mom came in to tell me he passed away. At dawn an unusual strong gush of wind came in my bedroom. I had chills but I was at peace. I never saw the white dove after that. I knew my uncle was in heaven.

  27. My sister and I went to the cemetery to visit our parents but particularly my mother as my sister is living a life of fear with good reason. She was crying that she wishes she could feel her presence so I silently asked my mom to be with her. At that exact moment a beautiful white dove almost landed on my car but decided to land in front of it. My sister said that it seemed to be " checking out my car ". I started crying because I bought it on the nineteenth anniversary of her passing. I was in awe when I realized my camera was in my car. A couple whom I hadn't seen earlier was suddenly there and the woman asked if I wanted her to take a picture. When she did, the dove took flight and it was the most beautiful picture with its wings fully spread. I grabbed my camera and suddenly there was the dove sitting in the tree above us. I talked to it as I took eleven more pictures as it " posed for me ". When we left the dove followed us to the exit and was gone. The woman who took the first picture emailed it to me and told me she and her husband stayed in their car for twenty minutes after we left and never came back.

  32. Hi, I lost my 25 year old son to a sudden accident on his job 3 months ago. I was supposed to visit him and he passed away just 10 days prior to my visit. There was a lot of bickering at his burial as my ex husband cant let go of certain issues that were caused through our divorce many years ago. Suddenly, as ´our wedding song´ played at the cemetery, a white dove appeared out of nowhere and circled above us throughout the entire song. Then there was peace. This dove appeared to me and my daughter again two months later on Thanksgiving day and once more when we returned back home almost three months since my son left the earth. I REALLY believe this is his spirit letting us know he is ok and at peace and also that he wants us all to be in peace with one another. I wait to see that lovely white dove when I am feeling down and see it as a sign that my son is with me!

  33. In 2012 my mom broke her hip and went into hospital for a hip replacement. Complications set in and she spent 3 nights in the icu and further month in hospital..At the same time one of her pet cats became seriously ill and we rushed him to the vet hospital. He was diagnosed with terminal liver failure. The vet wanted to euthanase him but I did not want too (maybe bad decision of myself) as my mother was due out of hospital in another couple of weeks. and I wanted her to see him and say goodbye. One day I was doing some gardening (this day was the lowest for me) as sadness and depression had really set in. My mom used to spend alot of time sitting around a table in an undercover are of our yard when I looked and I saw a white dove underneath moms table. The dove was not scared of me and I saw he had a broken foot. I picked the dove up holding him between my hands and the dove flexed his wings to show that he could fly away, but he didn't want to. I took the dove inside the house and placed him on my moms bed. I then took the dove back outside to the table where I first saw him. I gave the dove some bread and made my way to hospital to visit mom. When I arrived back home later that day I went to see the dove but he was gone. Before that day and after a white dove has never visited my home. I truly believe that day I was visited by the heavenly spirit and if someone here can further explain this I will be very happy to hear. (My mom arrived home and saw her cat before he passed away).

  34. On Dec 28th 2013 I lost my father to lung cancer that had metasticized to other part of the body. My oldest brother is now laying in the hospital dying from COPD/emphysema. His lung collapsed a couple of weeks ago and things have been getting worse for him even with surgery. We saw him yesterday and when I got home I saw my husband's Valentine's gifts on the table. Chocolate and White roses. Today were rushed again to see my brother because the thought he was about to pass soon. While I was sitting there next to him, he told me he saw a little white bird on my shoulder. Then he asked "Do you hear that music? That beautiful music? It's from Le Miserable. Of course no one could hear it but him. He's been on a lot of pain medication. But I know about signs so I believed him. I was then talking to another family member from his wife's family and she told me about when her grandfather died. He told her he would come back as a sparrow to watch over her. THere were many times the sparrow appeared either physically or symbolically throughout the time since he passed. That's what made me connect to the realization that my mother and I had kept the two doves from my father's funeral bouquet that my mom got him. I will wait to see what happens and if any other white birds/doves appear in the coming days. This thread has really comforted me.

  35. Oh and one more coincidence. My brother told our other brother that he had a code for him to let him know if things were really bad. He'd text him or tell him either 6 or 7 for good or bad. I just noticed that the 6 and 7 appear as your website domain name. How about that?

  36. Wow! I'm tripping here about how the last 2 posts were posted on the day my BIL passed and about the mention of the number 6 ( I had not noticed the domain name)!

    While at my BIL's house waiting for the phone call to tell us that we can come down to say good-bye, I stepped outside to have a cigarette. For some reason, I looked up and to my amazement, a large white dove flew directly over his house . I knew this was his spirit starting its journey. The call to inform us of his passing came about 10 minutes later. Two days later, I went to put a damp towel out on my deck to dry and looked up again, yes, another white dove was flying over my house! I wonder if it was my BIL again or, another family member who had previously passed spirit?

    As for the numbers..they indeed mean something...our number seems to be 5. You can look up their meanings here: http://christianity.about.com/od/biblefactsandlists/qt/Bible-Numerology.htm

    One more thing to mention, your loved one will come to you in dreams so, be on the look out! My mother has come to me in dreams 3 times in the last 9 years that she has been gone.( I'll have to check the meaning of those numbers after I'm done posting this) :D

  40. My daughter has been struggling for 7 years with a fear of choking. We have not been able to find anyone to help her. We finally have her at a place that is not so much helping her but giving her some therapeutic advise on how to deal with it. It is so crazy because we have been and called so many places that deal with eating disorders but not the anxiety and fear of choking. We are very religious and she has been praying really hard lately, today at the place she is going a white dove walked in the room she was in by herself walked around her and walked out. We are taking this as a sign that he is reminding her to keep her faith and give her some peace ..

  41. On February 17 2013 I lost my best friend matt he was murdered at the age of 30. Since his tragic death all I do is cry the pain in my chest is unbearable. I never thought such a horrible thing would happen to him. Last Sunday was his birthday and he would of been 32 this year. Since sunday ive been having dreams of two white doves. In my dreams the birds arent chirping or anything they are just there. Today when I woke up the sun was shinning and I heard a bird chirping and making the cutest sound I have ever heard in my life and sure enough it was a white bird im pretty sure it was a dove. In my heart I know matt is working for GOD now and by him sending me doves in my dream and now by him sending me a dove to my patio lets me know that hes at peace. Even though the pain cuts so deep I find some comfort with the signs he does send. People say not all visitation is good but I think a beautiful sound of a bird chirping is good visitation from are loved ones who arent no longer here with us. I miss my best friend matt so much.

  42. So today I was sitting in my living room with doors open for the breeze.2 Doves flew into the side of my house I assume fighting? Well one ended up flying away. I was trying to get up to close the door before one got into the house but wasn't able to even get off the couch before the other dove came in and smacked right into my face and then sitting beside the couch until a friendd came over and got it out for me. In the process the dove flew up and landed on a picture frame that I was going to put a picture of me and my boyfriend in and pooped. My friend grabbed the picture frame, released and walked through the house and outback where then dove flew away. My boyfriend and I have recently encountered a hard situation and been arguing a lot. What's everyone's outlook on this?

  44. In March of this year, my husband and I and our two grandchildren were out in the Arizona desert digging for crystals. My 5 year old grandaughter and I were on one side of the hill, my 12 yr old grandson was up a ways from us, and my husband near the top of the hill. All of a sudden I heard this loud "swoushing" noise, and my grandaughter and I looked up and there were hundreds of white Doves in the air above us about 20 feet over us. My grandson looked up and he saw them also. There were so many you could not see the sky. My husband caught the tail end of them in his sight. The strange thing is I felt a feeling of comfort and peace. When we got home and I downloaded my pictures from early in the morning there was a white object out lined in the sky that looked almost like a trumpet. Very unusual photo. A very unusual morning.

  45. I went through a very serious personal crisis 2 years ago and spent a lot of time at my church in intense prayer. I found an alcove with a statue of Jesus where I would pray quietly with my eyes closed. One day I started to see very bright white spots with my eyes closed. One at a time they continuously changed shape and grew wings and I realized they were doves floating around. It was unmistakeable and it happened again multiple times. Sometimes they would even sparkle or glow. This simple image was God's answer to my prayers. I am very fond of doves now.

  46. Peekaboo (my cat) got his terminal illness diagnosis
    on (July 24) Thursday and was released from vets on Friday July 25 .this morning Saturday was

    the first time outside for Peekaboo and I (which he loves) since his diagnosis and we went out at dawn (1st light, call to prayer)

    which we have been doing for the month of Ramada
    in solidarity with the Muslims murdered around the World.

    We went out at dawn (he had trouble going down the stairs) and walked to the front of the house where we
    heard a bird calling.

    We looked over our heads and three white doves were
    flying above us heading North and one was calling to
    us and the other two silent.

    Evidently the Holy Spirit wants Peekaboo for something......

    I've had my doubts about Allah but a few Summers back when the war on Libya began, four (4) giant tan colored swans flew over our heads at dawn heading North.

    I interpreted it as the four horsemen of the apocalypse
    of Revelations (though I'm non-believer in Torah) and it appears

    with the wars that have occurred since that dawn that perhaps
    the reckoning of 'Revelations' is near.

  48. Lila Dreamt my Mother was walking and looked so good,her hair was cut short but the weird thing My mothers was sitting in a back seat of a car and saying to me “she looks good doesn’t she” but it was like another Mother was in front of her and mom was saying that about her. My mom was in hospital for over a month before she started being able to stand for a little while, she is now in rehab and starting to walk short distances. She so much wants to go home.

  50. A few years ago my life changed forever. My husband shows up at my office with tears streaming down his face telling me my brother passed away. I remember him driving me home, we sat outside taking it all in & waiting on phone calls from other family members to make driving/flying arrangements to his town (10 hours away) I was beyond devastated ..when a beautiful butterfly fly directly i between us..hovered for probably a whole minute, circled around my head..then circled around his head and fly away. We were actually cring and laughing as this was clearly miraculous. On our very long drive I brought my books on Angels and connecting with loved ones who have passed away. As I'm engrossed in my book a few hours into the trip, I was startled by the loudest sound I've ever heard. Something slammed into the windshield going 70 miles an hour. I asked my husband "what was that" and he said..(as we are pulling off the highway to a gas station) a white dove came out of nowhere and hit our windshield! The craziest part is it left no blood ..no feathers..just this white powder that made the most beautiful image of a perfect angel wing. It was as fine as flour, dusted lightly on our windshield. I actually took my finger and touched it in amazement. Has anyone ever hit a dove? I'd like to think the dove didn't really die but 70 m/h .. How could it not.
