Birds Hitting Window
Uncover hidden superstitions meanings
Maybe your here because a bird flew into your window and you want to know a little more about it.
Sometimes windows are dark, they can reflect the outdoor space and the phenomena of birds hitting the window suddenly occurs. Sometimes if you’re sitting in the living room, as I was the other day a bird flew straight at me at full speed. Bang! It hit my window. I was left with the question (like you I am sure) is the collision with my window an omen? Is it a spiritual message from above? In order to answer these questions, I have undertaken a bit of research into the older omens of birds hitting windows. Please watch my video below where I go into specific bird messages and don't forget to leave in the comments the type of bird that hit your window so I can respond in my next video.
Here I will uncover what this can mean for you and your life. Birds themselves see in ultraviolet light, and because windows are somewhat see-through it can confuse the bird, additionally, things like shiny objects such as aluminum can be hung outside the window in order to detract or deter the bird from hitting the glass. I am going to deal with a number of different spiritual questions that you may have - if of course, you have seen a bird hitting the window.
What are the superstitions of a bird hitting a window?
Birds hitting your window could mean that you are going to encounter an obstacle in your life if the bird died. But sometimes, the bird just hits the window and you should not concern yourself with superstitious if it flys off. Of course, I believe "the bird" means something. As I have already said in the opening paragraph that the bird might have just crashed into your window because it could see the reflection of the sky in the window.
At times, birds hit the window carrying a message that we need to overcome obstacles. I will say, that you should not mistake this omen as physical death. In foklore, some books do say that it represents transition. Remember, even in the bible it states: when one door closes, another one opens for you.
So the bird could be closing one door in your life and opening another one. It could be that there is going to be an end to the suffering that you have been encountering of late (the obstacle); it could be an end to your own personal problems and now time to heal yourself. It could be an end to a relationship which is not working for you or a job that is upsetting you. So the message of the bird hitting your window may signify an end but a new start is in store.
What is the spiritual meaning of birds?
A bird is symbolic of perspective and freedom. When a bird hits your window the spiritual meaning of the bird is something you need to take notice of. Due to the fact that birds swoop up high up in the sky, it is believed that birds are God’s messengers - providing a bridge between the spiritual life and the mundane. They can be a positive sign of great luck. Since time immemorial, birds are in folklore symbols to many cultures.
Now, to see one single bird that approaches your window peacefully or just sits and looks inside your home - in ancient times was thought to be a sign of the spirit of your dead loved ones. In some folklore books, a bird hitting the window can mean an angel wants you to take notice. It could be that your angel is trying to communicate that they are around helping you, and watching over you or spiritually. Make sure you are aware of the day - it could be an anniversary when the bird appears. Look up the date, does this day or month mean something? It is a lovely sign and you can use your intuition to get the right message from the bird. The message is of a loving nature.

Different birds bring different omens into your life when they hit your window. If it is a hawk that has flown into a window, it means that you are going to have a message of clear vision and sightedness. Crowns, blackbirds, and ravens bring news of protection and good passage.
A hummingbird hitting the window means that you are capable of achieving the impossible in your life. Seeing owls are a representation of an ill omen.

How can I stop birds hitting the window?
I am going to now address this question, as a few people have e-mailed me after having several birds a day hitting their windows! To stop birds hitting the window put stickers on the window, a film of vegetable oil or hang up anything metal that reflects the light.
What does it mean to see a flock of birds from the window?
If you see a flock of birds symbolizes a new start. It can be a powerful sight, whether at your workplace or in your garden at home or you just dream about it, spiritually that is a very powerful sign. It denotes peace, abundance, good relationships and at times rewards and possibilities in life.
