I’ve been out from work for a week under doctor’s care after experiencing wrist pain. I was at home and extremely depressed.
Entering data information in a fast-paced sales environment for 12 years and recently adding the stress by coming home and typing manuscripts to I improve my creative writing skills, I may have potential carpal tunnel. As I wait on my x-ray results I’ve been trying to keep a positive outlook,heal physical,and mentally.
I’ve been hearing an owl in the large oak tree near my bedroom which is in the northwest area of the house. Each morning upon rising,she is hooting as the wind stir the wood chimes on the sun porch near my room. I wonder what this message to me.
I needed an understanding what this owl was telling me so I got up and turned on the computer and researched:
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.
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.
Owls know when to move silently and when to be still, which makes them the keepers of secrets. These solitary birds don't feel the need to proclaim their presence to anyone until the timing is right. Owl comes to us when we need to open our eyes, and study the situation at hand. If we watch and listen with our inner selves we can figure out what is happening behind the scenes, and confront those who are trying to deceive us at the appropriate time.
The owl represents wisdom and higher education. Because of the owl's keen eyesight it considered to be a great visionary. It also has superb hearing. As a totem it can reveal clairaudient and clairvoyant abilities. This nocturnal bird is called "The Keeper of Dark Secrets." The owl totem has a connection to the dark side and the dead. The owl is associated with superstition and magical powers. Whenever an owl appears or you hear an owl screech in the night it may be that a secret will soon be revealed to you. Also, if a secret is shared with you in confidence, the owl serves as a reminder to honor that knowledge and keep the secret private.
The Element: Owl people are influenced by the element fire, an element symbolizing spontaneity, enthusiasm, and idealism. However, in Owls, fire does not burn wildly and uncontrolled. It glows quietly and softly. The power of fire is used to acquire spiritual knowledge.
The Clan: Owl belongs to the Hawk clan, which makes Owl people levelheaded and farsighted. They strive for deeper understanding. The driving force behind them is a quiet and lasting inner fire. In order to acquire more knowledge, members of the Hawk clan, and particularly Owl, are willing to pursue any adventure or challenge that life offers. Owls grow and mature with their tasks.
The Wind: During the time between November 23 and December 21 the wind blows from the West. This is a time of long nights and introspection. Nature also pulls back, preparing for the long winter. But nature's stillness only affects things on the surface. Hidden underground, inside trees, and below the snow, much is happening. In nature as well as in the human soul, this is when new ideas are born from nights dark and obscure.
Owl Character: With the elements fire, Owl people have an enduring strength that allows them to follow their high ideals and formidable goals. This is why people often think of them as haughty and arrogant. That does not bother Owl people. They know that there is more between heaven and earth than logic and materialism. They strive for a deeper understanding and a more profound truth.
This is why Owl can be so committed to her ideals. She has plenty of enthusiasm and little difficulty inspiring others. She has great difficulty tolerating narrow-mindedness and restrictions. Owl people need a lot of freedom and independence to pursue their goals. After all, the world is a place much in need of improvement. A missionary zeal is not uncommon among Owls, and sometimes they overdo it and appear to be know-it-alls.
I any case, Owls loves a good debate because during intense conversations ideas can be exchanged and new insights and attitudes developed. Generally speaking, Owls are open and very direct, sometimes to the point of tactlessness. Owls must learn to accept different opinions and idea.
