Owl Medicine

topic posted Sun, September 30, 2007 - 5:27 PM by  Unsubscribed

I was curious, what does the owl signify? My dear sister and iwere speaking on the phone about relationships and out of nowhere, in midday, this owl swooped right in front of her car. I figured it had to have been a sign of some sort so i told her i would post here and see what others have to say.

look forward to responses...

    HI Bala,

    The medicine card deck describes Owl as "deception" but I would petition them to change that to "truth."

    Nobody can fool the owl. She can see to the heart of one and know the shadow of someone before the person themselves.

    Interesting for an Owl to do that maneuver in midday, and I might suggest that this was an "exclamation point" to the conversation. Examine what you were talking about at the time. It might be that there is some truth or deception to what you were speaking about. It might be that whoever was speaking, was speaking something very much the way that it is.

    I am glad that she did not hit the owl. It would have then been "inverse" owl, aside of being a tragedy. ;-)

      Owl is one of my totems...

      Owl represents clairvoyance, clairaudience, astral projection and magic. Owl gives us the power to see that which is hidden to the naked eye...the ability to see in the darkness reveals things which bring great wisdom and knowledge. Many Shamans and mediums have owl as one of their totems.

      The large eyes of these beautiful birds certainly seem to reflect an otherworldly knowledge and wisdom, their stare is direct and penetrating as though they see beyond the masks that are presented to them to the truths that lay beneath. Likewise, the one beside whom Owl journeys will be gifted with a higher wisdom. In some instances, this is reflected as one who has attained great academic heights in traditional educational systems and universities, yet more often than not, Owl Wisdom is forged via life experiences which are later transmuted into greater understanding. At times, this Wisdom is boldly shared and the two-legged blessed to have the companionship of this Totem will often be sought out for advice. At other times, this Wisdom is very circumspect with the human counterpart reticent to impart the depth of their Knowledge to others out of either a lack of self worth, or born in the sense that their Wisdom will not be fully understood or embraced, and so they chose to remain silent.

      For the one beside whom Owl flies, the Gift of Wisdom is a life long quest and within the hearts and minds of these souls is a never-ending desire to know more. Often, they are voracious readers and will feel a little unbalanced when they are not entertaining their minds enough which may eventually manifest as physical and/or emotional ailments, hence it is vital for their sense of equilibrium to challenge their minds via new studies, reading stimulating books or taking up new endeavors that will later be fashioned from the base material of knowledge into applied principles that become another wellspring of Owl Wisdom.

      The owl is the symbol of
      the feminine, the moon and the night.
      The owl is the bird of magic and darkness,
      of prophecy and wisdom.

      The owl is associated with Athena.

      An owl totem gives you the power
      to extract secrets.
      Meditate on the owl and things will be revealed.
      Listen to its voice inside of you.

      Owl knows that all apparent manner of death is in fact a liberation into a new life. Something must first be cleared away for anything new to be born. When a person moves, leaves a job or relationship, has a baby, adopts a new animal friend, something in the old way of life had to die for the new to be created. At the time it may seem incredibly painful because we have been taught that death is an ending, not a new beginning, and that what is in the process of being born is always more beneficial than the old. The pain and grief is extended and heightened when we try to hang on to what was because we believe that s the best we would ever have. The unknown can seem dreadfully forbidding, how will we cope, who will be there if we stumble, what if we fail?

      Owl can take us beyond those thoughts and fears, for Owl sees far into the future and knows that even after the darkest night there is a new dawn that is approaching. It is as inevitable as babies crying and of buds bursting for th from plants in the spring. From every death something new must emerge for life is ever renewing itself.

      You will hear not what is being said by others, but what is hidden.
      You can detect subtleties of voice that others cannot.
      People cannot deceive a person who has an owl totem.

      Owl people can see into the darkness of others souls.
      Most owl people are clairvoyant because of this ability.
      It can be very scary at times.
      Learn to trust your instincts about people.

    It's been awhile since I read through my Medicine Cards book. Although I'm pretty familiar with most of the more common animals and their specific messages and medicines, I like to read up when a visit occurs, whether physical or in a vision or dream.
    I had a really intense dream last night in which I was visited by an owl. I felt a real sense of care, concern and love from the owl. It was a very comforting and special vision that I won't soon forget. The problem is..... I couldn't find my Medicine Cards book this morning! I'm sure it's in my house... just not where I normally keep it.

    I'm glad this information was here ---- Thank you!
