The Origins of Peaceful Owl Counseling
I was minding my own business and writing my last paper for graduate school. All of a sudden a large barred Owl flew by my window and landed on top of the umbrella on my deck. I felt a need to go out and visit with it. We hung out together for over a half hour and I felt a sense of calm and awe from that experience. After it was over I did some research about owls.
“In cultures worldwide, the owl is a symbol of wisdom, power, intuition, mystery, protection, messages and change. 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”. (www.wakingowl.com)
Life is lived from transition to transition and it is important that we use the wisdom from our experiences to bring us more Joy, Peace and Wisdom.
