The Meaning of a Red Cardinal Sighting

A Red Cardinal Sighting

When a red cardinal shows up, people pay attention. Its beautiful red feathers and distinctive crest catches your eye and brightens your day. The spiritually sensitive often experience a red cardinal sighting as a message from Spirit, and for good reason. When Spirit wants to attract your attention in a positive way, Spirit will find a way to do so, and in a way that brings you joy. Watch the video below to learn more, then read on for more details.

What Is a Red Cardinal?

The Red Cardinal is actually a Northern Cardinal, which is a songbird indigenous to North and Central America and the Big Island of Hawaii. Traditionally called “redbirds,” European colonists applied the “cardinal” name after noting that the feathers of the male birds are the same bright red color as the robes of Roman Catholic Cardinals.

Are Red Cardinals Spiritual Messengers?

Yes, in many ways Red Cardinals can be spiritual messengers. Many cultures and belief systems hold that animals, including birds, can be spiritual messengers. Red cardinals, because of their distinctive appearance, are often distinguished by cultural practice as messengers of importance.

The word cardinal comes from the Latin word cardo, meaning hinge or axis. Like a door’s hinge, the cardinal is the hinge on the doorway between earth and Spirit. They carry messages back and forth. The appearance of a cardinal may suggest that Spirit is hoping to hear from you. This can be a good time to re-explore or recommit to your prayer life.

Many myths and traditions surrounding the cardinal have to do with renewal, good health, happy relationships, monogamy, and protection. Looking at the life of a cardinal, it’s easy to see why it has so many good associations.

For example, cardinals mate for life. They are also non-migratory birds, so they remain in their immediate area all their lives, protecting their turf. And after the couple’s chicks hatch, both parents work together to assure the health, welfare, and security of their family unit.

Many people associate cardinals with the winter holidays,.Greeting cards, holiday decor, calendar art, and ornaments often feature cardinals. These holidays usually include spending time with family and friends. A red cardinal sighting might be pointing you to a need to reconnect with family or your hometown, or anticipation of going on vacation.

If you believe that cardinals are messengers from Spirit, then the next time you see one who is insisting on getting your attention, ask yourself these questions: What or who were you thinking of at that moment? Did you ask for guidance from Spirit or ask for help finding the answer to an important question?

Allow your cardinal sightings to bring you a feeling of peace. Know that Spirit is listening. Let red cardinal visits remind you that Spirit always guides and protects you. Above all, don’t forget to thank your cardinal friends and Spirit for their guidance.

Visits from the Other Side

If a deceased loved one wants you to know that they’re around, they might send messengers from the animal kingdom: small, brightly-colored bugs, birds, and butterflies are not uncommon choices. Things with wings tend to get our attention, and if you allow yourself to tune in, you might even know who has sent them. Their message could be a simple acknowledgment that your loved ones are always around. If you’re asking the Universe for guidance, seeing a cardinal tells you that Spirit is hearing you and guiding you too.

Native American Culture and Shamanism

Many Native American tribes tell stories and hold beliefs surrounding the cardinal (called the “red bird”) and a red cardinal sighting. In Cherokee creation stories, the first red bird is the daughter of the sun itself. This gives the red cardinal a feminine connection, even though males are the more colorful of the two.

The Choctaw people believe that the cardinal is an omen regarding relationships. If you’re single, it could be a sign that your status is about to change. If your relationship is in trouble, the cardinal may be a warning that things need to change.

Some Native American cultures believe that cardinals help them predict changes in the weather, serve as watchers and guardians, and others look to red cardinal sightings as a sign of what direction to travel or follow. Some also believe that red is the color of protection from enemies and illness.

No matter the story, belief, or tradition, it’s certainly clear that a red cardinal sighting plays an important role in Native American heritage. In their practice, Native American shamans utilize the medicine wheel. The basic makeup of this medicine wheel includes the four sacred, or cardinal, directions: North, south, east, and west, and the four cardinal colors: red, blue, black and white.

In the medicine wheel, red is the color of the east, the season of spring, and animals of flight, including the cardinal. Words spoken in the direction of the east are carried on wings and taken directly to Spirit.

What Does a Cardinal Symbolize in Christianity?

Some people wonder if the red cardinal has Biblical meaning. There are no cardinals in the areas where the books of the Bible were written. Nonetheless, there are some connections between Christianity and cardinals.

Cardinal Angels

Four of the seven Archangels are Cardinal Angels. They are Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel. Cardinal Angels influence and inspire large groups, such as cultures and nations. Each of the Cardinal Angels also have rulership over an element: Fire, Water, Air and Earth. In addition, the Archangels may be trusted to bring messages to people. This is very similar to the Native American belief that Spirit offers guidance, protection, and direction through messengers.

If you encounter a red cardinal, consider that there may be a significant change in a group or organization that you are a part of. This may also be a sign that you are to assume a greater leadership role in these groups or in your larger community.

Another consideration might be that Spirit wants you to become more aware of how an element, or elements, are manifesting themselves in your life. Here are the ways that the four traditional elements operate in our lives:

Fire: Inspiration from the divine, taking initiative, and challenging the status quo.

Air:  Strategies, plans, ideas, and intellectual development.

Water: Creativity, relationships, intuition, dreamwork, and getting in touch with emotions.

Earth: Day-to-day responsibilities, finances, property, and the environment.

Pay attention to where the red cardinal has landed, that may indicate the element that you need to concentrate on. For example, if you see the cardinal near a power line, utility box, or even on a stack of firewood, it may be time for you to take more initiative and start making aggressive changes. On the other hand, if the cardinal has landed near a puddle or other body of water, Spirit may be asking you to spend more time in a creative pursuit or working with your dreams.

Roman Catholic Cardinals

In the Roman Catholic Church, Cardinals are senior church officials with a significant amount of authority. In addition to leading dioceses or fulfilling other important functions, Cardinals may advise the pope. A cardinal sighting may indicate auspicious timing for speaking to an authority figure about your concerns or taking on a major project.

Red Cardinal Sightings

The red cardinal has played many prominent roles throughout our history. It continues to be an important part of our human experience. It bridges the gap between Earth and Spirit, and it also brings the wisdom of the Universe to our doorsteps in a bright and beautiful way. All we have to do is pay attention.

    December 1,2017 I just moved from Ohio to New York to help with my mom who has Alzheimer and have ran into some bad luck and I been asking my Angel to help me with my problems. I walked outside to get some air and was just standing there and think about everything that’s been going on and hoping that the Angels heard me and then a red cardinal flew in a tree by me and was just sitting there staring at me. Is this a sign that the Angels heard me?

    1. Amy

      I believe so. I am a true believer that our loved ones visit us through cardinals letting us know things will work out, be okay, they are watching over and guiding us.
      I lost my father in 1999 very suddenly and unexpectedly and very shortly after he passed was frequently and to this day occasionally visited by a Male Cardinal.
      Again, I suffered the sudden and unexpected loss of my mother 3 years ago and to date I receive occasional visits by both female and male cardinals.
      I’m a strong believer these beautiful birds a truly spiritual messengers of loved ones lost and remind us to stay strong, persevere and all will be fine for they are there to ultimately guide us.
      Enjoy and relish your visits from cardinals.

    3. Christopher Biggs

      I have had two Cardinals sitting out my window last two weeks,more the male then the female. Today I was sitting in my room playing on my PlayStation,I seen the male cardinal land in the tree. I looked at him said hello. About 5 minutes later he was on my window seal pecking on my window to come in,I called my dad to come see and while we observed for couple minutes he flew away. I am not sure what it meant but it’s just not normal to have this happen.

    4. Marquedas Fanniel

      Yes Mame it did. It is very important that we pay attention to the birds of the air because Gods Angeles come in many shapes, forms ,and sizes. These are the last days therefore we are to pay attention to our surroundings.

    5. Cab

      In December 1999 I lost my father. On March 9th 2006 I lost my husband. Since the lost of both my father and my spouse, we have been finding brand new shine dimes. On October 28th 2017 I lost my oldest daughter. For this reason, I was forced to sale my house and move to Kansas, to be near my son. About a week ago i saw my 1st cardinal on my front porch. It looked at the street then she turn her head and looked toward the house. Then it hoped around the proch looking toward the street for a sometime before flying away. Now I have had a dream of all 3 of them together. Father’s day was her 53th birthday which just added to my stress level. I don’t understand why I have stopped finding dimes. I think I’ve been having a hard time because I was the one who found her.

    6. Christine Fortunato

      Yes absolutely I get the same thing …it’s amazing beautiful feeling in the world.

    7. Tonya

      I’m no expert but that definitely sounds like a sign from spirit telling you that they are there and helping. Best of wishes for your mother!

    8. Pamela Homan

      I lost my Dad on Jan. 23,2018. I have never known hurt like this before. Some days I just don’t think I’ll make it . Recently cleaned up my bird feeder and got it ready for the summer months ahead. While standing at my kitchen window watching the little birds eating a beautiful red cardinal flew and landed on the banister of my deck. He was looking straight at me, I couldn’t help myself, I said out loud well hey Daddy! I truly believe that was a sign from my dear sweet Daddy, call me crazy if you want to, but it was a magical moment for me.

    9. LJ

      Dear Roxanne: Absolutely! You wanted (asked for) a confirmation and you received one. Signs are all around us, and once you trust them, you’ll notice them more and more and you will be amazed at all the little things that really are signs that maybe you’ve never noticed before. The message is – you are not alone – the angels and guides, your crossed-over loved ones are all there to guide you and protect you when possible. Don’t forget to thank them (or that little red cardinal) for showing you a sign. That’s a wonderful story – thank you for sharing.

  2. Prettybirrrd

    I’ve been seeing these almost everyday since summer. Last week i noticed i hadn’t seen one in a few days . I thought about it so much I had a dream about a cardinal that night. The next day i got into my car after leaving a clients house and there was the bird right in front of me in a tree! When i tell my friends about this stuff they think I’m crazy! My sons father who i told about my daily sightings of the bird didn’t really believe me, then one day we pulled up to the house and one flew from a tree onto the sidewalk!

    1. Ella Haskell

      I see a Red Cardinal almost everyday as well that is why i searched it up, a lot of people that i cared about are dead and the red cardinal started coming when they died.

    2. Ann T Roslevich

      I definitely believe in the red cardinal. I was looking out the window today and saw a red cardinal sitting in the tree outside looking straight at me. Earlier I mentioned to my granddaughter that I wish my daughter and her family for good luck. I think this was a sign that better things will be happening.

    3. LJ

      Dear Prettybirrrd: That’s fabulous! I love when people who don’t believe in signs receive signs themselves. I can imagine your expression when that bird landed on the sidewalk. Cardinals are homebodies. They live for generations in the same place, so even if your little friends disappear for a day or two, they’re never gone for long. I’ll be willing to bet that your son’s father notices when he sees a cardinal now, even if he overlooked it before. Thanks for sharing your story.

  3. Dawn

    I just tragically lost my dog Bella. I am completely heartbroken. I have heard about cardinals and the visiting spirit. This Am, a male cardinal was at my bedroom window. It is a long transom window above my bed. He was there for about 3 hours. Going back and forth pecking against the window and would not leave. I videoed it and got my daughter to see this. Then he left. He is in the front of the house in a tree now. He was so persistent that I looked and paid attention to him. Flying up to hit the window like he wanted to come in. I was afraid he would hurt himself. Could this have been a sign from my beloved Bella?
    I am so sad. Completely heartbroken.

    1. Candace

      Hey same thing happened to me. My cat suddenly passed away on Thursday and yesterday I heard this noise in the livingroom so I went to see and it was a red cardinal tapping on the window. He was there for a long time

    2. Eastin Sky Henderson

      Yes forsure I just lost my dog he was full of life like your dog was happy full-hearted dog ever. so my dog died got ran over by a car or truck. i asked GOD that Night I said to God please show me he’s still ALIVE in then after that prayed about more stuff then finally went to bed. I seen my dog Wake Up in my dream he was happier then ever I knew God showed me he’s still alive everything happens for a reason I fell so free in safe like gods right here with me.on the forth day went in visit my dogs grave in my yard turn around walked back with my dogs look up seen that a male red bird on the tip of my house looked at him in knew it’s a message in presence God works thru stuff.before all This Happened like a week or two before I seen 2 RED BIRDS fly together

    3. LJ

      Dear Dawn: I’m sorry about your beloved dog. Animals are a special part of the universal/spirit world and it is very likely that the cardinal wanted you to receive the message that Bella is still very much with you and watching over you. Even the actions of the cardinal the way you described it had a very insistent feel to it much like a dog or pet wanting to get out attention. Believe in what you feel. My condolences.

  4. Joyce

    What does it mean if a cardinal hits your window & dies ? I had to scoop it up & bury it! I felt sadness & confusion ?

    1. LJ

      Dear Joyce:
      I’m sorry that you experienced that – it doesn’t mean anything other than the Sun made the bird think the window was open. It happens to a lot of birds. What I feel is that you got a chance to tap into your compassionate side and feel empathy for an innocent creature – you gave him the respect of a wonderful burial and gave meaning to his life – that says more about you than it does about the bird sighting.

  5. Benny Caruso

    Hello, my name is Benjamin. I live here in South Jersey, USA. For the past three mornings, right around daybreak, I have been visited by a beautiful little red flying creature that has caught my curious attention. My air conditioner is still in my bedroom window as I hear little footsteps on the outside metal of the unit. On every morning so far, I see a little face peering in my window at me, bopping up and down, and walking from side to side! Then it flys away suddenly to a nearby tree grasping a branch with its tiny claws. Then it flys back to the outside of my window and begins peering in at me once again. Like I said, today is the third day this has happened, always at dawn! I do not believe in Physics, but I do believe in a wonderful creator who has made all things for His pleasure and ours. I love this beautiful little bird and believe that somehow, this heavenly little omen knows it! This whole thing brings me to tears as this is happening at a somewhat low and lonely time in my life. I know that my creator works in mysterious ways, just like that little red friend, is He trying to assure me that I too will also fly away soon? Resurrection and Rapture are so near! I think The Lord is telling me that. Everything is in place. The Bride has made herself ready! There will be many beautifully multicolored winged creatures there at this wedding celebration, I believe my little red friend will be one of them! John 3:16

    1. LJ

      Dear Benjamin from So. Jersey: Your cardinal sighting may be showing you that you still have plenty to share – love in this life – even affection for a small animal. I believe we hear and feel the messages we are meant to – but in your instance, I believe it may be a message that it’s not quite time for you yet, but when it is, there will be plenty of loving souls awaiting your arrival. t’s a message of being at peace, watched over and loved. In the meantime, you’re still here – and it’s for a reason, so live your life to its fullest.

  6. Maritza Neris

    Great stories…I saw my first two cardinals today October 5, 2017..Im so happy because that means they are hearing me. I pray to be able to help my family in Puerto Rico after the horrible hurican Maria. I have not able to work due to an accident and have no money, but I pray to my deceased parentes to help me so I can help them. Now and positive that I will be able to do so.

    1. LJ

      Dear Maritza: I love the positive message, despite all you you have going on. I like to think of cardinals – such as in this instance, as a message and acknowledgement that your prayers have been heard – and as I truly believe, all prayers are answered. Prayers are powerful and so are the messages we receive from spirit. Keep the faith and that positive attitude and all will come together for you and your family once again.

  7. Bonnie

    I just looked out my window and saw 6 cardinals in the bush outside . Have never seen more than 2 in one place before . Is this a sign ?

    1. LJ

      Hi Bonnie: Wow! That’s a lot of cardinals and a lot of spiritual energy gathering around you. It’s hard to answer your question, but if you think about it a little more, I’m sure you’ll see this as a confirmation that you are loved by plenty. I always ask myself, “What was I doing at the time I saw this?” – So what was it that you were thinking of – or whom? That may help you find your answer.

    2. Heidi Dodpapas

      Yes. A good sign. Put my moms ashes where she wanted them. ..when i went back 3 male cardinals were there…it let me know “I’d done good” by her… ❤️

  8. Nad

    I have very unusual situation in life and it could be even dangerous. Actually it is already dangerous. I was thinking about what to do to get out of situation. Today I was walking and noticed a red cardinal in a bush, at the left from a sidewalk. He was jumping there, then jumped on the sidewalk, scearing other birds away and taking from them some piece of food, probably bread. Then he jumped on the border, and then disappeared in same bushes. I was amazed with his red color and unusual beautiful appearance, felt it was some sign. Was this sign?
    Thank you, Nad

    1. LJ

      Dear Nad: Sounds to me like he certainly wanted you to notice him. Were you thinking of someone at that moment? Have you asked a crossed over loved one for a sign? There are many possibilities. Cardinals also symbolize renewal of spirit within ourselves. You can answer this better than anyone.

  9. Tony Mastrovecchio

    On June 25,2017 I posted a quote about the red cardinal, I’m posting another today wondering if anyone could answer a question for me. On June 7th of 2013 my mom pasted away and I was totally drought, still having my mom on my mind on June 18, 2017 a very good friend past on this date. I don’t know if when seeing a red cardinal would be my mom or my friend. Can anyone help me with this answer?

    1. teagan

      I’m sorry about your mom and friend I think if u do see a red cardinal it’s from your mom or friend!!!

    2. Trini Arevalo

      That includes me…how do we know who is the angel and what is the message? My mom passed away Dec 30.2013..before that my dear friend whom i called sweetheart..passed away Nov 21.2013..and just about everyday these beautiful Red Cardinals appear on my front and back yard. LOVELY

  10. T.

    Dreamed of Cardinals . They, were up high in a Tree as I walked by .Felt excited to see them .Then the Male flew down in a lower left brush area on the ground. I laid down flat to See and talk. He got close ,then flew back up the Tree w/ the Female and they left. It, was a powerful Vibrant Dream . Wondering the true meaning.

  11. Mery

    Every morning for more than one month in our window come Red Cardinal and he hit window 3-4 times like he want to come inside. This is very interesting can you tell me what is this sign please

    1. Ty

      For the last week or so, red cardinal has been pecking at my Jeep window ,and when I’m in my Jeep, it comes to my driver side and sits on my driver side rear view mirror and, It stares at me and fly’s off. No matter what time of day, if it sees me, it appears. I would never harm any animal intentionally, but I do not like birds and cats. Does this symbolize anything?

  12. Glenna J

    For the first time today, I saw a pair of cardinals. Is there a special meaning or significance to sighting a pair?

  13. Christy

    On June 2, 2017, I had just left my house and was driving to work when a red Cardinal flew in front of me. I then kept driving and soon saw a black hearse. My dad had been ill for a year now, with Mesothelioma. He was to have a surgery that morning while I was driving to work. I left work early that day remembering both of those significant sightings and later got a call from my mother saying I needed to come to the hospital. Later that day, my father died.

  14. Kris

    Not until I read all the comments was I sure that the red cardinal that dove straight at my windshield yesterday and flew away was sending a message. I have been finding pennies everywhere. I don’t know who is sending me a message but I know someone is!

  15. Jody

    My Father passed away 5/8/17.

    I’m currently staying at his home.
    Red Birds everyday in the yard. Also the same two hummingbirds feed everyday.
    Happy to read these comments.
    The one RED BIRD makes sure I see him
    each time..I had no idea this was a sign.

    1. Keunsha

      9/12\2016 Had a stillborn baby just started having visitors from red cardinals in humming birds(baby boy/Ethan)

  16. Linda

    I had a wreck yesterday. A cardinal came and looked me in my face today, the very next day. It was if she was saying,”Are you ok?”

  17. Carolyn

    Today, July 3,2017 I was driving in my neighborhood and a red cardinal flew into my windshield. Thankfully, the bird only clipped on wing on the windshield as I swerved to miss hitting the bird. The bird continued on with his / her flight. Well, not too terribly unusual, however, a few miles down the road ( 15 minutes or so ) , another red cardinal flew almost directly into the windshield as I slammed on my brakes ( I have extremely good reflexes like top 3% in the US ) I let another cardinal avoid a death by car. I just thought rather odd for two cardinals to narrowly miss death by my driving skills/reflexes. I am quite sure this is a sign of some kind.

  18. Michelle Barger

    I did not see a Red Cardinal but I had a dream about one. The love of my life died 6 years ago. It rocked my world. I dream about him from time to time. Last night was one of those nights. I was crying in my dream because I miss him. Then I saw a Red Cardinal. I made a note in my dream to remember the Red Cardinal because I was sure Ken was trying to tell me something. Can somebody tell me what Ken was trying ti tell me?

    1. Angel

      That’s the love of your life telling you that he loves you, misses and is always there with u in your

  19. Alexandra Mas

    My fiance Nate passed away on June 13, 2017 at 34 unexpectedly. I have been seeing red cardinals everywhere these past few weeks and I had a feeling it was him since he has reddish hair…I am so happy to read it really is his spirit or a spirit he has sent to let me know he is in heaven waiting for me…tears….

  20. Amanda McHone

    My Mama passed away on March 10, 2012. She had this beautiful, long red hair! After her passing, I started seeing red cardinals everyday, some following my car, some flying right in front of my car. Since then, I have lost a step brother, a 10 year relationship partner, & my only biological sibling, my brother!! That was in 2015….. I continue to see multiple red cardinals, everyday!! They do give me piece, & I always say “thank you Mama!”

  21. Ty

    Omg! On June 2 which was a Friday I sent my daughter a picture of what I thought to be a Red Robin. We talked about it and left it at it, well today me and my mate was sitting on the sofa talking about a Red Robin, he asked me did I blow a kiss at it, I looked at him stranger. Well long story short, I went back to think the day I saw it was the anniversary death of my uncle. I didn’t want to go to the vigil that day because he’s been gone for 15 yrs now. I felt like they need to let him rest. Then I thought about the bird I said awe man that maybe a sign from my uncle. Not sure what to feel or how to feel about it but I do miss his dearly. And for some reason the bird let me get close and not only that he wouldn’t move I got a picture and now when I go back to work and I see it it’ll remind me of my uncle Oh how much I miss him

  22. Tony Mastrovecchio

    Today is June 25th 2017, it started raining outside with heavy down pours it was about 5 PM when I got up off my couch to close the window when I spotted a Red Cardinal on a branch of my pine tree, where I recognized a saying on Facebook. I had to look up the meaning when I read it I found myself Blessed. It was a sign that a peaceful spirit telling me everything is going to be alright…

  23. Chloe [9421]

    What a wonderful article LJ!
    Cardinals are indeed a sign of blessing. Winged creatures speak to our soaring spirit.

    Throughout our life different animal totems may present themselves to us. When we pay attention to both what the animal represents, and their habit, and behavior, we gain valuable insight into when and why an animal may be appearing in our life.

    It’s also interesting to note that sometimes an animal is appearing because they need our light and protection!

    Thank you for such an informative article LJ

    Love & Light,

    I’ve had a Cardinal banging its head daily sun up to sun down rain, sleet, or snow into my dining room window since last August. I’ve tried everything to get him to stop but he incessantly beats on my window. It’s the first thing I hear every morning. Please tell me why and if he’s a messenger, what am I not hearing? I believe we are sent messages from our loved ones who have passed on and omens of things to come through nature but I’ve been unable to figure this one out. Help!!

    1. Jennie

      He’s seeing his reflection in the window and as a defender, is insistent in protecting, not realizing it’s himself that he is fighting. I have one too that would do this every morning as I meditated and it stopped me due to only concentrating on him. Finally, I embraced him and now the whole family is aware of Carl and Carla – our family cardinals. We say good morning to them when seen or heard. There is love in my heart and love for him as he reminds me about of life almost daily.

      I don’t know what it means for you but glad to hear of someone else who has a similar experience. I have a cardinal that started banging himself into our window in our livingrm. We lost our beloved son 3 mths ago & since then the Cardinal comes & sits in the tree right in front of that window & then bangs himself against the glass for a few minutes then perches in the tree for awhile then knocks again. Sometimes for a few minutes sometimes for half an hr or longer. He came after our son passed on his Dad’s birthday then on some of my worse days of grieving. Not everyday, but regularly. I noticed when he came today that after he finished knocking he went to the pond to hang around. Our son loved the waterfall & huge pond. I hope it’s our son sending a message of his love for us or telling me he’s joyful & at peace. We were so close & devastated at his loss.

    2. Mia Young

      There’s several things that come to mind. First, I would think the window would be significant, in the sense that windows are often symbolically referred as being the windows of the soul. Specifically, “eyes are the windows of the soul”. Another concept could be related to the biblical perspective stating that God never closes a door without opening a window. Personally, the incessant persisistance of the cardinal would tell me there’s a sense of urgency that requires your immediate attention. My recommendation would be to remove the clutter and chaos from your life so that you can hear the message that it’s trying to convey. Lastly, open the window and look at what doors have been closed in your life.
      Just a small guess! 🙂

    I really enjoy reading my horoscope and your very interesting blogs and the comments from the other people who read them. I see cardinals alot but I never knew why. I was thinking of moving to North Carolina with my boyfriend, but my family lives in PA and I’ve lived there all my life, so I wasn’t sure until a cardinal landed in the tree outside my window. The cardinal is North Carolina’s state bird. I took that as a sign.

      Very interesting Tracy – I love that you followed spirit’s guidance. I should tell you that the cardinal is the state bird in seven US states – which says a lot about how special cardinal symbolism is, but you may also look to those other states as possible moves for the two of you in the future. Best of luck.

      You just helped me figure something out ! NC, red, Republican and obstacles out of the State I moved away from. Red is also the color of passion, heart conditions and Aids Awareness. Two cardinals within a time span of 15 minutes from each other almost flew completely into my windshield while I was driving. .

    My fathers name is Henry he passed away 11 years ago. I have a Cardinal that I call Henry and he comes every morning when I call him to feed. He will sit on my porch and eat when no other birds will land in the feeder when I’m at the door. Henry will stay and when he’s hungry he will chirp till I go out and feed him. They all think I’m crazy but I have even video the event. He brings me joy and a smile to my face when he comes. 3 years ago I lost a close friend and that next morning there was 2 cardinals that had landed outside my window, I truly feel that Henry brought Freddie to see me and let me know they are both safe.

      Thank you for your beautiful story. I have been seeking Caridals frequently over the past few weeks. I am going through some difficult situations. I now believe that I know who is sending me messages from the spirit world other than Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. It’s a friend of mine that passed on Thanksgiving night in 2016. They are letting me know that everything is going to be alright. Be blessed

    2. Sage

      Nice! Love this! My father’s name is Henry too! He passed but comes to visit in different forms. You are not crazy!!! Thank you for sharing your experience. It has value to me!

    I was crying out to the spirit world today, I was stunned by the cardinals way he flew to the street in front of my truck and refused to move, I thought I hit it. I slammed on the breaks and he flew away. I made it to thecorner and turned left and 3 more was flying. In front of truck then suddenly dispersed 2 going right and 1 left. Meaning Has truly got me emotional. My Angels heard my cry. Humble myself.. Thank you for my sign today.

    My mom passed 20 years ago but I still “talk ” to her and ask her to watch over me almost daily. A year and a half ago the company I work for was acquired and I wasn’t sure if I would have a job or not. About the same time a red cardinal started coming and sitting at my window just looking inside. Then after a while he started knocking on the window with his beak. He comes every day all day long and just looks in the window. sometimes he gets very animated and jumps around. Other times he just sits there. Today for the first time the female also came to the window. This is the first time I have seen her. I have pictures and videos. I is the cutest thing.

  32. Dannyelle

    I always see cardinals in my backyard, but never knew about giving a “spirit message” until 2 days ago when I was telling my friend how much I miss my brother that past away 28 days ago, now every time I see a cardinal it bring me a smile. Thank you for all the stories seen so many beautiful messages brings me good memories. God Bless you all.

    My grandfather always fed the cardinals outside his house. After he passed, our family was sitting in a circle eating after the funeral. A cardinal landed on a low hanging wire right about us and sat there for 15 minutes. I knew it mean that an angel was near. Later I got a job at pottery barn and was opening a box of ornaments that were all life size cardinals. Then a lady from my grandfathers home town came into the store and knew my grandfather personally and told me that he was watching over me that day. I then started seeing cardinals everywhere and sharing my story. Then several of the customers that bought the cardinals told me similar stories regarding loved ones. A few days later a quote popped up on my Pinterest with a cardinal saying “When you believe beyond what your eyes can see miracles from heaven show up to remind you that love still exists.” I’ve moved across the country now and a cardinal lands on my boyfriends truck every morning. I truly believe it’s my grandfather’s spirit!

    My mother recently passed away and just 8 months earlier my father passed away. I had many spiritual encounters with my father after his passing but had not experienced it with my mother. Someone related to me recently an experience they had seeing cardinals after a loved one had passed. Until then I had never heard this. I praying last week asking GOD for a sign that my parents were now together and happy. The next morning when opened the curtains to look outside in the yard there were two sitting outside together looking inside my window. I knew this came from my parents and I felt a sense of peace.

  35. Crystal

    My goodness!! I have to tell this story that I once experienced with a red cardinal bird, just recently, and would like to know what it means… I was working one Friday morning at someone’s house, cleaning up the kitchen… where they also have a glass sliding door with sheer curtains hanging up… Anyway, I was sweeping the floor and I kept hearing something ‘tapping’ on the glass door; I dimissed it the first time, then, I heard it again, so, I went to go see what it was… As if it was ‘insisting’ to get my attention one way or the other. I peeped out of the window and long behold It was a RED CARDNIAL BIRD, tapping away! That has never happened before. I am still trying to figure out what could this bird have wanted with me… HELP PLEASE! 🙂

  36. Marjorie Regina Howard

    I’m a true believer.. It’s hard sometimes to talk to people about certain unexplainable things but I know there is another place and there are signs everywhere around us…I’m so glad that I’m tuned in and not afraid. .

    All summer at 5 p.m. a red Cardinal came to eat at my house. I feed the birds all year long even in the snow… this year as a gift from mother nature a robin built a nest right in the little tree in front of my kitchen window. I got see her sit on the eggs and with the blessings from the bird gods I got a picture of the last baby bird leaving the nest. it was an amazing experience. my Cardinal doesn’t come around anymore… maybe he found a better bird feeder 🙂

    1. LJ

      Psychic Quinn:
      I love those stories. I’m sure your cardinal will be back. In real life or sent by Spirit, they’re always around. And I’m sure no one has a better feeder than someone who loves birds so much. The robin is the way my mom comes to me; Monarch butterflies for my nephew. Everyone comes as they wish, when they wish I suppose. It’s a wonderful, comforting feeling they bring. Enjoy.

    08/10/2016. 4:14 a.m. Re: Meaning of a Red Cardinal(red bird).” that I saw Looking out my kitchen window. In March, 2016. chirping-‘n-the-trees! “March 12th 2016. my cousin;(Mary) crossed.” In betimes. Oh! how she’s missed.!! Lately, I’ve dreamed and saw my ( Mother & grandmother). in GREAT- Cheer! seems they never left!! (jthomas) LOL! Love and Light! Live’n-Peace;Not Pieces!

    1. LJ

      JThomas: This is absolutely a good point. Sometimes when someone passes, before they’ve crossed over, their spirit may to you in this manner. Birds, butterflies and “things with wings” are a wonderful thing. And you can tell when it’s just a visitor or when it’s just a random fly-by. They’re insistent on getting your attention when it’s someone here to see you. I’m glad you could feel so at peace.

    1. LJ

      Dear Maia: You’ve just touched upon their greatest gift of all – feeling joy. Whether they bring a message from Spirit, or it’s just a simple, beautiful part of nature coming into your view, it doesn’t really matter, because that is their gift – to bring you a feeling of joy, exactly the way you described it. Enjoy.

      Dear Tina: I’m very sorry for your loss. It’s not easy to lose someone, but it is comforting to know that they’re really never far – and they’re always there to help you and guide you and just be near you. I’m so glad that you can comfort each other with your presence, thoughts and prayers for one another. May it always bring you great joy and put a smile on your face.

      Hello Marilyn. I’m so glad you can connect with our angels so easily. They love when you talk to them. They also love doing things to make our journey through life as good as possible; we need only ask (and by all means be specific in your requests). Of course we should always remember to thank them as well.

    1. LJ

      Hi Karen: If you see the red bird while you’re driving, perhaps he’s pointing you in the right direction to go to find your answers. Just remember please to keep your eyes on the road more than the bird – LOL. Happy travels.

  43. Estelle McClurg

    OMG! I’ve been thinking about and “talking” to my deceased husband lately – he’s been gone 16 years now and I miss him every day. This morning I noticed a beautiful red cardinal outside my kitchen window and thought nothing of it until I read this message!!!

    1. LJ

      Hi Estelle – That’s a beautiful story and a timely message. I’m so happy that you had this experience, and I hope you have may more. Now whenver you see the red bird, you’ll know he’s dropped by to bring a smile to your face and to let you know he’s with you always.

  44. Jennifer

    Two huming birds came to me during this time when I was experiencing something amazing but it was good I don’t no how to explain this happened in the past two days. But for several weeks I been feeling like something I happening like energy running through my body i m sorry I don’t to explain but its driving me crazy a little like LM supposed to do something my thoughts are crazy i don’t think this is bad but I feel there’s something I just can’t think clearly about this energy . but I think the homingbirds there were two like this moment I’m speaking of was amazing

    1. LJ

      Hi Jennifer: The hummingbirds are great examples of “things with wings” that begged to be noticed. You are feeling (and seeing) a message from Spirit. Don’t be anxious or feel crazy – this is a beautiful thing that should bring you a peaceful, hopeful feeling. Think for a minute if you’ve been asking God or the Great Spirit a question; or perhaps you’ve been thinking of someone lately who has passed … or perhaps they’re just thinking of you. Let your intuition guide you to the answer that “feels right.” You’ll know.
