Dove Reflection

Animals reflect our behaviour. The animals we feel a closeness to, encounter often, engage with, attract, and so on; have a role to play in that moment of our lives. They offer an understanding to us of the ‘play’ that is our current experience, and give insight into the intricacies of our lives. Following is the understanding for the gentle Dove.

Dove (General) Reflection   (Listen while you read)


Interesting, is it not; we have two birds similar yet, surprisingly different, indeed.

The Dove is a little Pigeon, indeed it is. In the main, it is a little Pigeon.

There are exceptions to every rule; however, for this purpose (our reflection) we shall see the Dove as being a smaller version of the larger Pigeon.

So similar are these two energies. Similar and yet each has a very distinct distinction.

And what are they; the difference?

The difference lies in their genetic make-up. One is able to soar to great heights. Indeed this is true.

One prefers to stay a little lower; closer to the ground.

It is a marked difference for those who appreciate the subtle difference.

The Pigeon prefers to be up in the clouds, so to speak. The Dove prefers to be more cosy; closer to the ground.

A minor difference, and yet we must see it for what it really means for those of us who are attracted to these beautiful birds.

Are we to be up in the clouds, or need we allow ourselves to be more like the Dove and settle closer to earth?

A dilemma exists for those who love these little creatures. They are aware of the subtle difference between these two energies; for, they live these energies on a daily basis. Should I ‘stay up in the clouds’, or should I ‘come down to earth’?

Yes, my friends, this is one of the dilemmas that those who have a love for these two very similar birds, experience daily. Up there, or down here; which is it to be?

Well, my friends; there is an ever so slight difference between the two energies, and yet a very marked one for those who are influenced by those energies.


The Dove & the Pigeon are two energies, so very similar, as to be as one.  Should you be attracted to either one of these delightful creatures be sure to read both reflections; for one cannot be without the other…   The Pigeon

  1. Hi Carolyn,
    Looked for your like button but can’t see one. Ha, ha….You and I are just learning and each thing is new to us, huh?! 🙂

    Really enjoyed this Dove reflection. Great! These are beautiful. THANK YOU.

    At least I’m clicking the correct “Follow” button now 🙂

    Keep up the great work. It’s beautiful. Blessings, Teresa of

    1. So glad you enjoyed it; I loved doing it – so it’s a two way street; as they say….

      I see you found the ‘like’ button… 😉 And yes, I’m still ‘finding my way around’ too..

      Don’t forget, should you want a ‘particular’ Parakeet I’d love to do that for you… 😉 Have a great day..!

      1. Hi Carolyn, as for my parakeet, he just looks like all the rest of them at the store 🙂 ha, ha I think they’re officially called Budgies.
        We’ve had him for several years now, and he is so funny. He cracks “jokes”, talks bird language, and sings sometimes for hours. He can imitate other bird songs, so he has a large repertoire 🙂
        Have a fun day! Teresa

        1. Right; Budgerigar it is… I’ll do him tomorrow as a ‘fill in’ for Parakeet.. Budgies are very popular here in Australia…. such sweet birds 😉

          I’m just now ‘editing’ my comment ’cause I don’t know if Budgies can do all that you say this little one does…. I’ll research and get back to you….. sorry for the confusion 😦

          1. Oh, I’m sure that he is a normal Budgie by breed, it’s just that he has an unusual Soul. He’s a unique individual who breaks out of the confines of the norm. Much like his two-legged caregivers 🙂 ha, ha. Teresa

              1. It sure is…lots of laughter and joy happens around here. When our Son and wife come to visit, they know NOT to expect the normal life of other families. NO CELL PHONE reception, NO NETWORK TV, so many animals, and Mom & Dad are SO-O-O-O-O-O very different. Always into something new, and passionate to tell you about it. ha, ha. They know but come anyway. Bet they have a good time 🙂

                1. Oh wow; you sure are a very busy woman… Just visited your blog and I can see what you mean… yours is a ‘very’ different lifestyle; one that many of us would enjoy (if we could just break away from all the gadgets, noise and confusion…. 😉 I’ll get on over there later and have a ‘really good look’.. 😉 That’s the only thing that I don’t seem to able to do… ‘stretcccchhhh time’… it really is ‘finite’ 😉 for me; so many good things to do and so little time to them in… 🙂

                  1. Hi Carolyn, THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING TO CREATION PLACE. That’s great.

                    Yes, it is a whole different lifestyle from city living which I’ve done some of also. Out among the mountains, trees, fields, animals, there is a sense of TIMELESSNESS. It is so easy to forget what day of the week it is, or even what time of day. It’s really a wonderful way to live. But, it is rather solitary, and that’s why I would like to see these Communities springing up all over forming more of a Village where people care about each other and GROW UP.

                    We do manage to stay very busy, and its not all “ha-ha’s” such as when the waterline at the barn freezes up. But, even that is an opportunity for growth, prayer, and being thankful. Anyone, who has ever done without electricity, BUT ESPECIALLY running water, or hot water can be thankful all the rest of one’s days that we have it. It makes for a grateful heart, a mindfulness (like the Buddhists express it) noticing all the small things, and all things to appreciate, and be thankful for. It’s a great life, really.

                    We have a spiritual blog too that is really off the beaten path and unusual that truly expresses a different, unique viewpoint with a bit of ancient Native American thrown in with it. Check it out sometime, if you like.

                    Thanks again and Blessings, Teresa

    2. Oh, thanks for saying you’re having a difficult time. I can relate to that as I am still setting up the appearance page. Your blogs are great, clear, easy to navigate and such fun to read 🙂

    1. Wow Hook; there is incredible ‘artistry’ in those comics… I just took a look on the net and am amazed by the ‘talent’. I wonder if Dove has the same issues; “Should I stay up in the clouds; or should I stay closer to earth?” Don’t think she’d have quite the same dilemma as her ‘Earth bound cousins’… 😉

    1. I’m glad that you found it so…. 😉 I’m enjoying ‘doing them’… Even I am surprised; they make a lot of sense for the personality involved…! I can relate to the Long Haired Chihuahua. My little dog is part Chihuahua and the reflection speaks of having a ‘premise’ in life (a ‘basis’ upon which to begin). I have always found this to be very true for me. To ‘create’ a firm beginning allows for a ‘smooth’ passage in anything that we do. This has always been important for me; something that I’ve always been very mindful of…

      Thank you for your input and your visits…. 😉
