Red-Headed Woodpecker Symbolic Meaning

Channeled by Quornesha S. Lemon| Shaman, Author, Transpersonal Life Coach| with Abilities in Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, Mediumship, & Credentials in Animal Communication, Healing, Egyptian Healer, Reiki Master Teacher, Crystal Reiki Master, Certified Life Coach, Certified Hypnotherapist, Hoodoo Practitioner, And so much more| When seen in waking life, dreams, visions, channels or otherwise: The Red Headed Woodpecker, represents the need to listen from within. To go within oneself for all knowledge, to advance and become whole in who we are. Use your intuition. It is time for you to do plenty of work in the world. The clients, situations, causes or otherwise will be provided for you to work upon. It is an individual decision, as to what you choose in exchange for your energetic work in the world. Do not accept judgments from others because of your visions for YOUR LIFE.

It is time to be powerful, to become what you are truly meant to become. At this time, you are walking your talk and talking your walk. You are applauded and even though you feel tested, you choose your beliefs, versus your temptations. You are now fully aware of who you are.

Embody your light. Show the world and yourself, what you are made of. Do not limit who you are because you think an enemy lurks. Even if you love and send love to all, your enemies are set in front of a mirror and you are protected from all harm. No matter what, you will always have and manifest whatever you desire.

The Red-Headed woodpecker represents a level of maturity that has been reached. You are within whatever you appear on the outside. Which is to say, you are aligned. The Red-Headed woodpecker and it’s colors are quite significant, with Black representing protection and power and red representing acknowledgment. While White represents purity.

10 Minute Email/Chat Reading

This reading is exclusively for email/text message only. It is a 10 Minute reading. This session can be gifted to others or bought for yourself.


You have the gift to open others up and to change their way of thinking, you are noticed by others whenever this bird appears. You seem to know more than you realize and are often considered as a genius. You have a special path, and you are one of the few gifted people on this planet.

You express great qualities and see the good in others, and accept them for their flaws and weaknesses. You are a superior in the spiritual and supernatural worlds/realms. There’s nothing you need to fear. You have the abilities of Psychic power and the red-headed woodpecker is a sign that you need to continue ‘working on’ these gifts to bring it out further and have them fully developed.

In General, the Red-headed Woodpecker is symbolic that you are illuminating the world. Through your work. Continue to shine your light as your wisdom is landing in all the right places. Begin to acknowledge every blessing as it appears to you as a result of your efforts.

You have a gift to see beyond the natural human eye and for this reason, many others call upon you for your advice, counsel and healing energy. If ever you feel overwhelmed, you need to take time out and unplug and do something worthy of your own happiness.

The red-headed woodpecker can appear in your dreams, synchronicities, waking life, or visions as a sign, that you must get going in the direction you have chosen, and if you are procrastinating, now is the time to make a decision. Your advice appears ‘spot on’ and there are many successes for you in a business or project.

You are to awaken the ancient power within you in a graceful way or manner. YOU CHOOSE your own happiness. Do not allow others to script your life. As, what appears as unhealthy for or to them, could be healthy for you and what appears as healthy to others could appear as unhealthy for the others. Be yourself always. More importantly, be happy for being who you truly are.

    Thank you. I have felt as though I am at a cross roads. I have known deep inside, for many years, that I am being called by the Goddess. I have recently been working on my family genealogy for direction and insight as to who I am, where I came from, and where I am going. I have been experiencing a drawing towards my grandfather, a strong calling, it was recently revealed to me that my grandfather had the ability to heal certain conditions. I was a young child when he passed, but I have a vivid memory of him holding my hand, rubbing a wart on my finger and speaking words I do not remember. The wart was gone two days later. For the past two days I have been visited by a red headed wood pecker, flying from one tree to the next and our wood fence making a racket of noise between his bird calls and banging. At one point he let me get close enough that if I had tried I could have touched him. After reading your article I have a better understanding of path I must take.

    Thank you so much for you beautiful channeled information on woodpecker. I saw him yesterday outside my window, got busy with life and forgot to look him up. This morning although I didn’t see him, he awakened me with his lovely drumming on the trees outside my bedroom somewhere close, a few times. Your information is spot on as I am transforming and evolving into my true self. Leaving old patterns and conditioning I now recognize, behind as I bless and release and BECOME and DEVELOP my gifts. Thank you and bless you. Peace, love and light 🥰

    In the past month I have witnessed two pileatine woodpeckers. The first one was when I moved to my place I gotta outta my car n there he was knocking away on the tree. Today when driving in a beautiful tree there was the same woodpecker pecking on the tree then flew across my windshield. I’m very interested in knowing more of why there may be coming to visit me.

    the red headed wood peckers, 3 , have been squawking and hanging around me and my yard for about a week now. Just before this I saw a beautiful owl, bug, flying right over my head. I love the outdoors and wildlife. I have been reading about shamanism and it is all fascinating. Thank you for your insight.
