we were emailing each other tonight - about life, love, romance, relationships, serendipity and owls, when my 6-year-old son came over smiling and playfully placed one of his many animal toys next to me...an owl...
"The owl spirit animal is emblematic of a deep connection with wisdom and intuitive knowledge. If you have the owl as a totem or power animal, you're likely to have the ability to see what's usually hidden to most. When the spirit of this animal guides you, you can see the true reality, beyond illusion and deceit...the inspiration and guidance necessary to deeply explore the unknown and the magic of life.
...Owl spirit animals as messengers of change...when the owl shows up in your life pay attention to the winds of change...
Birds, especially birds of the night, are often associated with departed souls..."

"The owl is one of the most ancient signs of spirit contact. The owl is the silent guide, teaching us to trust our instincts and silent impressions, especially in regards to spirit communication. Its appearance now is alerting you to much spirit activity around you.
The owl is also a creature of the night, and night symbolizes the darkness within - the places where great secrets and great treasures are hidden. Spirit is around now to remind you of this and to help you uncover these treasures.
The owl provides guidance through heightening your senses - physically and spiritually..."
