Animal Spirit guides: The Owl

To our past ancestors, the animal held great spiritual power and symbolic meaning. In Native American culture, mythology and ancient civilizations, each animal is embodied with its own symbolic meaning and held its own unique spiritual power.
A particular animal crossing your path had deep significance to your life and indeed a strong message to impart. The presence of animal wisdom may appear to you in a dream, on the physical plane or intuitively.

We can also utilize and tap into the energy of animal guides around us to assist us in the daily challenges that life some times brings to our door.

By calling forth the energy and spirit of a particular animal guide.

We can ask that we be imbued with the energy and strength. Endowed with the character and special abilities that is unique to that animal.

Utilizing that energy to assist us in general life, or in a specific situation that we may be facing.

This month we take a brief look at the OWL.

The Owl is the bringer of wisdom. The all-seeing owl possesses supernatural qualities and is often associated with intuition, clairvoyance and clairaudience. The Owl’s energy is at its peak in the very heart of darkness. When we are plunged into blindness and disorientation. He penetrates the darkness of the blackest night. Seeing and hearing that which others cannot.

A magical creature of the forest enigmatic and powerful.

If the owl is calling you, or you are aware of the owl being present in your life, dreaming or waking.

You are being called upon to open your eyes, ears and mind to the truth of a situation. To listen to the wisdom deep in your heart and soul. That still small voice is trying to reach you in some way. To assist you or help you in a current challenge you may be facing.

Tap into the power of the Owl by calling on your own intuition, listen to your own wisdom for there is something you need to see or hear. As the owl is so strongly associated with the night time, his wisdom may come to you while you slumber. So take the time to be aware of your dreams or make a special effort to remember and write down any important dreams you have. The Owl is a messenger that can bring clarity and illumination.


I open my heart and soul to the truth.
And ask that my life’s journey be illuminated before me,
I ask for the wisdom to see.
Even in the darkness of life’s challenges.
And the ability to manifest my true path

This is the Front page of my mini xmas album. I am still working on this one.I have almost got half way through it so far..I painted some chipboard letters with red a pink mix, acrylic paint and hand cut out a top note from a template i found (as i dont have a die cutting machine lol) so its not quite the perfect shape. This was also painted with the same pink/red acrylic paint and then misted with copper cosmic shimmer.
I then added a chipboard tree with pop dots to add dimension and some Imaginice flowers and bling. The flowers were misted again with a copper cosmic shimmer spray (the only one i have!!lol) ( crafting on a really tight budget here ladies lol!)

This tag was created out of cardboard painted with green acrylic paint..misted with my copper shimmer and papermania added and a imaginice flower and brad..all this crafting on a low driving me nuts lol.
wish we had a BIG LOTS or a MICHAELS or a
