The Beautiful, Mystical Owls
We are fortunate to live in a forest inhabited by the Barred Owl. We hear their distinctive “hoo-hoo too-Hoo, hoo hoo too-Hoo” often, but even better, this past summer, the owls graced us with their presence nearly every day. The three baby owls were especially curious and would show up often and let us get quite near. I’d hang out with them for long periods and so was able to capture them in all their “shape shifting” glory! The owls often perched near the Waking Planet World Flag, as though guarding the principles of peace, justice and love it represents.
In cultures worldwide, the owl is a symbol of wisdom, power, intuition, mystery, protection, messages and change. Birds, in general, are often thought of as mediators between the material and spiritual worlds and owls in particular are seen in this light. Owl energy has a peaceful and protective vibration and as “rulers of the night” they teach us to acknowledge our shadow selves. The owl invites you to peer into the dark as they can and they give you courage to accept and come to love all that you find there.
May the owl medicine of the deep peace of inner knowing and protection be with you.
