What do seeing a group of three red cardinals mean in dreaming?

Asked by artgirl09 (5points) February 13th, 2010

I am seeing three cardinals a lot this week in my dreams. I have been very sick with Influenza and could not do much but sleep. But I have needed this break from my regular life to pursue a deeper look into my life’s paths etc….sleeping for five days has given me the time to dream as well as figure out what I want to change in my life.I remember feeling warm, protected and safe when they would appear. Any thoughts out there?

If you felt protected and safe when they appeared,then I’d say that’s exactly what they meant.I personally believe birds are a good thing,whether they were dreamt about or real.I hold cedar waxwings close to my heart for very special reasons and will until I am no more :)what a lovely dream

It means your Christmas this year will be three times happier than last year’s.

Truth is, it’s your dream and only you can decide what it means.

@willbrawn oh noes!

according to, i get this:

To see a cardinal in your dream, represents vitality and happiness.

as an animal totem coming to you in a dream, i get this:

The Cardinal

The cardinal is a power packed bird that transforms and awakens us. Its color and its voice are its two strongest characteristics. It is a member of the finch family and is often recognized by its brilliant red color.

The eggs laid by the female hatch in about twelve days. This, along with the cardinal being a year round resident, reflects the rhythm of the number twelve. The number twelve often has important significance for those with this totem. It can indicate a turn of events or a life changing situation. When the cardinal flies into your life expect a change to occur within 12 days, 12 weeks, 12 months or at the hour of 12. Because this bird is a year round resident its medicine is available at all times and should be used by those with this totem whenever a need arises.

Cardinals have a loud whistle, Whistles penetrate the air with sharp distinct tones. They demand our attention urging us to hear what is carried through the air. Both male and female cardinals join in the whistling. This reflects the need to integrate our male and female characteristics into our day to day life. Feminine energy is linked to intuition. Male energy is linked to perseverance. If both are operating within our life our intuitive knowledge has the perseverance and strength necessary to manifest our goals and dreams.

Cardinals eat many decaying weeds and injurious insects. When a cardinal appears in your life it is telling you to pay attention to your eating habits. Are you eating things that might be injurious to your health? IS your diet nutritionally balanced? Extra care should be given to the blood and circulatory system. Past life ties to overindulgence or the consumption of poisonous substances is often linked to cardinal medicine people.

The bright red color of the cardinal is very symbolic. Red represents the blood or life force of the Mystic Christ. In yoga circles this vital force is known as the kundalini. The kundalini lies dormant within us until activated by a disciplined spiritual practice. Once activated spiritual power can be attained. The cardinal offers safe passage into the world of personal power for those who ask for its help.

When a person with cardinal medicine steps onto a spiritual path there will be no turning back. Everything else in their life will seem insignificant. Extra care must be taken here to insure personal happiness, particularly in the area of one to one relationships. Balancing spiritual ideals and physical pleasure will need to be instated in ones life so harmony on all levels is known.

Cardinals are named for the cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church with their bright red robes. A great love or a strong dislike for religion and churches is common amongst cardinal medicine people and can indicate a past life connection with one or both.

The cardinals voice is strong and clear and reflects an air of importance. This power packed bird can teach you how to express your truth, develop confidence and walk you talk. If you respect its teachings it will lead you home.

hope that helps! :)

It means you were not awake, your visual cortex was responding to random input, and your frontal lobes were interpreting the signal.

In most Native American cultures in the southeast and central plains, the Red Bird as it’s called is a powerful animal. It appears as a guide and has transformative powers. Meditate on what it is they are welling-up into your conscience from your sub-conscience…
Be thankful of the Grace bestowed upon you.
Best of luck to you on your new revalations…

It might mean that your subconscious is trying to tell you to pursure a career in Ornithology or that you’ve spent too much time working and need to devote more time toward bird watching.
