owl stories

Lilitu With Owls

People send me their owl stories. It's one of the very curious by-products of this blog. The stuff that fills my in-box is fascinating in the extreme. If any readers have any odd experiences with owls, please send 'em to me, I feel a responsibility to play the role of archivist.

And, plenty of folks have been posting their own stories on their own blogs, like THIS. And THIS, and THIS, and THIS, and THIS!

Hi Mike,

I can't claim to have any owl experiences, sorry, but I just wanted to comment, that during this period where there seems to be down time with Chris Knowles Secret Sun, I've been checking out your blog, and I have been very impressed, and will continue to keep visiting

I was browsing in a bookshop today and came across these cards;


It also had an Owl card:

Owl - Deception

The Owl is a silent flyer due to the velvety surface of its feathers, making the element of surprise the strength of its assault, enhanced by the fact that the attack usually comes from a source completely unsuspected by its victim. The first that the unwary Mouse knows of the presence of an Owl is the pain of sharp talons felt in its sides.

The Dreaming lesson here is that of deception. Today, according to its pooled spiritual teachings, the Owl warns us not to assume that all is well all of the time. People and situations we trust may not be completely trustworthy, but Owl has the ability to see what others may miss. The gift of this Dreaming is to be undeceived by external appearances and to discover the truth beneath them.

A bird that chooses to hunt at night, the Owl is up until dawn. She is one of the few creatures that actually wait for the sun to come up before retiring for a well-earned rest. She literally welcomes the sun as it illuminates and warms the horizon each morning. As such, she symbolically sheds light on those areas of our life in which we are being deceived by camouflage, fraudulence, pretence or duplicity.

Owl’s wisdom allows us to know when we are stuck in the content of our own lives, oblivious to the fact that we are wandering aimlessly through life. Owl sheds light on these moments, so that clarity may be retrieved and stability salvaged.

By helping us to find light at the end of an otherwise pitch-dark tunnel, Owl promises a time of approaching lucidity, new beginnings and promise.

If Owl has silently swooped into your cards today, you are being cautioned that you are perhaps being deceived by the apparently innocent motives of another. Owl’s appearance may be a warning that you need to quickly ascertain the integrity hidden behind these motives and determine how they may affect or influence your view of the world.

The Owl has been gifted with clear night-vision which, when employed with the right intent, affords us the ability to see what others may miss.

James Casbolt is someone with a profoundly strange set of experiences. So strange that it challenge my ability to believe him. He has posted a book of his experiences on-line (link at the bottom)

He talks about the Lost Tribe of Dan, also known in Greek mythology as the Spartans.

(excerpt below)

The owl is also another of their symbols, which represents the ‘angel’ Ishtar. I have only discovered in the last couple of weeks that the Hebrew name for Dan is Kaish. When my five-year old daughter was born, I named her ‘Kaisha’ and I had not even heard of the tribe of Dan at that time. On the way to Truro hospital, when her mother went into labour, an owl committed suicide by flying into the windscreen of the car. It seemed to direct itself at the car in mid-flight. Kaisha is some kind advanced being. There is a photo of her as a baby projecting a yellow beam out of her third-eye/forehead area as she concentrates on a spot on the wall.

To me, for what it's worth, the owl is the messenger between the living and the dead.

My Mum invited me to a 'full moon celebration' event that involved chanting and visualisation. We experienced difficulty finding the room since the receptionist sent us down the wrong stairs and hence we couldn't find signs for it: my Mum was rather irritated and I was trying to make the peace.

We arrived in the room and I started taking off my coat etc when the woman workshop leader suddenly appeared behind me and asked how my journey had been. I was irritated since she hadn't allowed me time to adjust to the room, and I answered her very directly that 'the signage to this room was VERY poor'. I think she was taken aback but she took it well.

When the man from the workshop led a meditation where we were meant to walk downstairs to a temple, I was an owl flying through colours!
