Animal Totem: Goldfinch
There are over 300 species of Finch. This summary will focus on the Goldfinch, but whenever a finch shows up in your life, there will always be an increase in activity in your life.
The bright summer colour of yellow and black reminds us of the Archangel Auriel. This angel oversees the activities of the faerie kingdom – the nature spirits of faeries, elves and devas. If Goldfinch has shown up in your life, it can awaken you to the presence of these Beings in your life and deepen your perceptions of them and their activities. Goldfinches can help us connect to those nature spirits who can teach us how to heal the animals. Time spent in meditation in Nature will be beneficial for this purpose.
Goldfinches are beautiful singers and rarely silent. They remind us that nature is speaking to us at all times and that we should learn to be aware and listen to what is being said.
This tiny little bird flies with an up and down movement. This can teach us to navigate from inner to outer, human to Fae, or physical to spiritual perceptions.
