So, Thursday we pulled Animal Cards, and discussed the meaning behind their animal medicine... including the owl, hawk, salmon, butterfly, turtle, and dragonfly. Then Saturday evening around 8:00 an owl "who'd" outside my friend's window for about 15 minutes, while we were discussing spiritual truths. That was super cool!
A little about the owl energy:
Native Americans associated the meaning of owl with wisdom, foresight, and keeper of sacred knowledge. This may largely be due to the fact that the owl is a great foreteller of weather conditions. Also its ability to see at night is legend among the Native Americans, and this attribute would be invoked during ceremonies when an oracle of secret knowledge was required.
Similarly, West African and Aboriginal Australian cultures viewed the owl as a messenger of secrets, kin to sorcerers, as well as companions to seers, mystics and medicine people.
During medieval times in western and central Europe it was fabled that owls were actually priestesses (witches) and wizards in disguise. To this day the owl is considered a witch's familiar (an animal soul-spirit linked to a spiritual person via a unique, communicative bond).
Yea, it's nice to be visited by an owl, it's even nicer to acknowledge it's meaning behind a visit..
We are all one, all beings, nature, and animals flourish with honor and acknowledgment.
Blessings to you all my spiritual friends, have a sacred week!
