I am going through a very rough time. A new friend recommended that I read Abraham Hicks. I did and when I came home last night there was a hawk on a very low Treebranch just outside my back door.
This morning the hawk was dead on the ground. My Google search for the meaning of this led me to this website. Coincidentally, I see Abraham Hicks is mentioned here often. I didn't know what to do with the bird but I did read that some Indians dissect it and keep the bones.
I wasn't going to do that, but coincidentally my daughter science teacher may be interested in taking the bird to dissect it and let the children examine the bones. Why did all of this happen, what is the message I'm supposed to be receiving? I've dabbled in and read law of attraction books in the past. I'm very familiar with the power of it.
I know all of the horrible things going on in my life right now I have subconsciously created to get me to a better place. I need to have faith. Please help me. Also, the person that introduced me to Abraham Hicks is appearing to be a bad influence. He is encouraging me to do the same things that got me in trouble in the first place.
How could someone who led me to something good be bad. I wonder if now I need to start guiding him?
Here's a bit of info that you may be useful @Bhemond, it's an example of a synchronistic event from the book Synchronicity by Carl Jung;
"My example concerns a young woman patient who, in spite of efforts made on both sides, proved to be psychologically inaccessible. The difficulty lay in the fact that she always knew better about everything. Her excellent education had provided her with a weapon ideally suited to this purpose, namely a highly polished Cartesian rationalism with an impeccably "geometrical" idea of reality. After several fruitless attempts to sweeten her rationalism with a somewhat more human understanding, I had to confine myself to the hope that something unexpected and irrational would turn up, something that would burst the intellectual retort into which she had sealed herself. Well, I was sitting opposite her one day, with my back to the window, listening to her flow of rhetoric. She had an impressive dream the night before, in which someone had given her a golden scarab -- a costly piece of jewellery. While she was still telling me this dream, I heard something behind me gently tapping on the window. I turned round and saw that it was a fairly large flying insect that was knocking against the window-pane from outside in the obvious effort to get into the dark room. This seemed to me very strange. I opened the window immediately and caught the insect in the air as it flew in. It was a scarabaeid beetle, or common rose-chafer (Cetonia aurata), whose gold-green colour most nearly resembles that of a golden scarab. I handed the beetle to my patient with the words, "Here is your scarab." This experience punctured the desired hole in her rationalism and broke the ice of her intellectual resistance. The treatment could now be continued with satisfactory results"

Help yourself. A warning that I'm going to be hard on you, but my respect is present.
If you ask me, it is a test of your character traits and maybe a metaphor. Sound 'feel good' enough to you to accept that? A metaphor, meaning, an analogy of a small unrelated event to reflect your big, 'disastrous' life phase at the moment. You mentioned you are going through a rough period at the moment. Does the dead bird on your perch seem to top it off? Maybe tomorrow 3 dead birds and a dirty ashtray will appear on your doorstep as a bonus.
Reading your question, and judging your use of phrases and descriptions, I have a guess as to the solution. I have picked up a pattern: You have logged onto a spiritual self help website, you have taken your time to draft this question, you are telling us about a rough phase in your life, you have told us there is a dead bird on your porch...and you want a meaning from all of this? Frankly I see the meaning right in front of my eyes.
Get a shovel and put the dead bird in the bin. Take responsibility and empower yourself to do the job. Your friend is scaring you with the Abraham book? Chuck the book away and quit contacting that person. It sounds like you feel they are invading your space anyways. Instead of reading Abraham Hicks (who's market is vulnerable people) read books on Co-dependency and how to set boundaries.
There is such thing in psychology known as analysis paralysis, and before you dismiss me here and say "Ive heard of that before" allow me to really tell you what many people clearly, clearly, are missing out of their understanding of that phrase: Analysis paralysis is a conscious choice....designed to procrastinate doing something. It is a devilish unconscious trick that keeps you searching for more information, in hopes you will discover some new Perfect information that requires you to do something easier.
Asking the meaning behind a dead bird on your porch? Sounds mystical and toy-like, but I stand my ground and say you need to empower yourself in your life to pick up the shovel with your own two hands, and get rid of it. Same applies to the many other aspects in your life.
Straight up truth here, when I see people make the decision to empower themselves and take responsibility, EVERYTHING changes.
