What's your animal totem?
Just over 2 years ago, a pair of Screech Owls established a camoflagued residence in our untrimmed Eugenia tree, right by our front door.
Eager to please, ("mi casa, su casa"), Sweet Judy Blue Eyes gave multi-talented Vic the official Audobaun Society directions for building a nest condo to their specifications.
They flew right in & next thing you know, the sound of baby owls!
They reared their young, left.
Then came back. Repeated the behaviour.
Left again. And returned again.
I developed a total love affair with the pair, named Dede & Man (don't ask). Being the spirit seeker that I am, I googlized the significance of owls in mythology, history, magic. The owl as an omen.
I found that they signified both wisdom & death.
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.
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.
Let your owl totem guide you.
The owls that guide me are Screech Owls.
Very courageous and ferocious, this Owl teaches you how to be a fierce individual
with an ability to cooperate with others.
