Last night an owl sat outside my bedroom on a telephone pole. I went out on the deck and stood with it. After a bit it flew off. Then it came back and I feel asleep to it hooting.
In many cultures Owl is a symbol for wisdom. This is because Owl can see that which others cannot, which is the essence of true wisdom. Where others are deceived, Owl sees and knows what is there.
Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, had a companion Owl on her shoulder which revealed unseen truths to her. Owl had the ability to light up Athena’s blind side, enabling her to speak the whole truth, as opposed to only a half truth.
I spent the weekend in retreat with 3 women in northern California this weekend.  When women spend time together we go into non-linear time and time stretches out. We access unknown territories in our selves because innately, we know how.  We hold council and space for one another to express our deepest truths an
d non-truths.  There is something about being in circle with women at this critical time that for me seems to bring on the healing that is necessary on the planet more rapidly.
I feel this owl came to me the night I returned home from my weekend to give me the message to trust in the magic and in my own clairvoyance and not to be afraid of the unseen world.  As a little girl I could feel the mystery of the world in nature.  There was no separation.  I’ve always had nature as my salvation but now, I am remembering so much more of who I am and how to be aware of all that is around me at all times.
Pay close attention to the animal spirits.  They have great wisdom to share with us at this time.
