A SoulCollage card I made for my owl totem
Many associate the owl with an announcement of death, I think of its message as a shift of energy or possibly of transition and transformation on a soul-level. Whenever I see or feel my owl totem I pause to listen for messages.
Like one of my favorite minerals, labradorite, as the veils of our thoughts and emotions are lifted we can intuit the answers we seek. I like to partner labradorite, black tourmaline or black obsidian when working with my owl totem. When wanted time to reflect, I light a candle,be still and listen.
If you too connect with the owl as your totem or spirit animal, listen to the subtle messages you receive around you, it just may be the owl’s whisperings.
The raven is another animal totem of mine. The enchanting raven is strong medicine energy.
A SoulCollage card that I made for my Raven totem.
On the back of the card I have written ” Each woman carries within her the medicine for her healing. Sometimes it is hard to see and feel the one who holds the medicine bag. She is there. We must never stop listening for her arrivals. Shh… gently she comes bringing what is now needed. Believe…” Unknown author.
Always honor your intuition, “gut feeling”, it will guide you well.
The ancient Greeks considered the raven to be a solar animal that was associated with Athena and Apollo who are both deities of wisdom. In Native American culture the raven is a symbol of change and transformation. They are honored among many medicine and holy people for their shape-shifting qualities and are called upon in ritual to clarify visions. There is a knowing that goes beyond what the human eye can discern in the physical realm.
