Wisdom through different eyes


[Current Mood |calmcalm]

 Hi all :-)
I've not had much experience with totems aside from Spider but recently Owl has come into my life.  I have a basic idea of the associations for Owl-wisdom, stealth,etc but I'd love to know more about the gifts and lessons Owl has to bring.  Please help!  I'd be very grateful :-)

Dawn, dusk, and the dead of the night is Owl's domain.

Owl is the Hopi god of the dead, guardian of fires, and tender of all underground things. Owl attends Lilith, the Sumerian Goddess of death, and in Mexico is called "messenger of the lord of the land of the dead". Popular belief holds that seeing Owl or hearing its cry means impending death, sickness, and misfortune. Therefore, Owl is too evil to name in Cameroon, and is known only as "the bird that makes you afraid".

You may have Owl Medicine if you frequently see, hear, or dream of Owl, or if you have gifts of invulnerability, insight, invisibility, keen observation, wisdom, and curative healing powers.

Owl - Silent wisdom, magical mystery, clairvoyance, fearlessness. You can access your strength and power, your ability to “see in the dark” of even the most mysterious circumstances.

Ask Owl to help you see what's blocking your manifestation, creating an illness or causing disharmony in your workplace. Owl helps you see anything that is hidden from you, including what other people are seeing and feeling.

Here's how to ask Spirit of Owl for help:

1. Say aloud or in your mind, "Spirit of Owl, I request your help."

2. Wait a few moments until you feel the presence of Owl (no more than a few seconds).

3. State your request. For instance, if you need help seeing what's causing an illness, you might say, "Owl, please come with me today and show me what is causing this illness in my body. Please show me in a way that I can clearly understand. Thank you in advance for your help." As with the angels, appreciation is

4. Stay open to what Owl will show you. Owl will ride with you on your shoulder, whispering in your ear, giving you knowing and understanding where before you had only blindness and confusion.

Owl may bring up old memories, send you a phrase from the mouth of a stranger or bring a chance meeting with another person. Owl will use any and every device to help you see.
If at the end of the stated period of time, a day in the above example, you still don't understand what Owl is showing you, ask again the next day. Each day Owl will make it more obvious to you. Each time you gain a new insight or understanding, thank Owl for the help. Remember that Owl penetrates secrets and veils, and can show you anything you wish to know. To gain help from this quick-fixer, all you have to do is ask!

Quick Note: You have the right to know and understand anything in this Universe. It's what you do with this information that's important!

Thank you so much! Spider has taught me so much over the years but has been quite absent of late-I started having Owl dreams (Barn Owl to be specific) a few months ago along with an increasing sense of being watched and I'm currently experiencing a lot of changes in my life that I think Owl is trying to draw attention to.
I really appreciate the wealth of information you've given me here and thank you very much for the speedy reply! I have a place to begin now :-)

Owl frequently visits me, so that is how/why I accumulated so much info. I hope something in all this helps you.

Spider is also one of my guides. She is an amazing teacher.
