Sparrow Totem

I'm not sure if the sparrow is my totem or not, but it comes to me whenever I am in need of a special message.

The sparrow comes to me when I need to be reminded of the simple life. When I overcomplicate things, or when I am frustrated about senseless stuff, the sparrow always seems to come into my life and she helps me to simplify, calm down, and appreciate the good stuff that IS working in my life.

I love what you are doing on your website, and love what you wrote about sparrow symbolism. As you can see, i get the same kind of feelings when the sparrow pays me a visit.

Thanks for letting me share my sparrow story.

An Important Note About Signs, Symbols and Their Meanings

Signs and symbols cultivate their meanings according to culture, context, passage of time in society as well as mass societal opinion. What's cool and highly important is that signs and symbols earn their most powerful meanings from our own personal perspectives.

This website strives to provide you with the best, time-honored information when defining signs and symbols. However, in the final analysis, "Beauty (and symbolism) is in the eye of the beholder."

Having said that, it's in our best interest to invest the time to do personal research on symbolic events happening to us. This website is just one perspective in an ocean of variety and diversity in the realm of symbolism. So dive in! There is a whole universe of deeper meanings to explore! You can start your research by clicking on the links at the end or to the side of this page. Odds are good I've got a follow-up article about this symbolic topic. ;)

As always, thanks for your willingness to learn more about the language of symbolism. It's a language that is universal and everywhere. It's super-groovy to travel with you on your symbolic path, and maybe offer a little translation along the way. Thanks for reading and exploring!
