“The Owl is one of the most curious creatures. A bird that stays awake when the rest of the world sleeps. They can see in the dark. I find it so interesting, to be mired in reality when the rest of the world is dreaming. What does he see and what does he know that the rest of the world is missing?” -- M.J.Rose, Seduction
Horned owl The Ancient Greeks associated Owls with the Goddess Athena, who was the Goddess of Higher Wisdom and Prophecy. Native Americans attributed the owl with wisdom and foresight. They wear owl feathers to protect them from evil spirits. An owl is considered a very magical creature, and is the essence of wisdom, secrets, mystery, and seeing what others cannot. With their ability to see in total darkness, Owls also represent Vision.

Everyone has a Spirit Animal who is in their life to provide guidance, lessons, protection, power and wisdom.

You do not choose your spirit animal, rather, it chooses you. All you have to do is open your eyes, ears, hearts and intuition to connect with your Spirit Animal. And in the early 90’s, the Great Horned Owl chose me.
Flying horned owl A Great Horned Owl doesn’t have actual horns, but instead has tufts of feathers on each side of their head that look like horns, which represent the ability to connect with the Heavens, access psychic abilities and develop a deep connection with the spirit realm and to the Spirit Source. The feathers of the Great Horned Owl also carry the power to connect to the quietude of the Divine.
Owls in mossy tree I live in the PNW with the forest as my backyard, where Owls are present in my everyday life. Sometimes they sit quietly in a nearby tree. Other times, I hear their calls - in the mornings, sometimes during the day, and most often, in the evenings and throughout the nighttime hours.

No matter where I am, I can see an Owl or feel the presence of an Owl where others cannot. I always hear their calls and messages.
