There is a quote that unknown author: “A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard”. These birds love to sit quiet and still so that they can observe their surroundings.
The owl symbolism indicates that you may need to remove yourself from the noise of life. Become still and silently observe your surroundings.
In other words, owl meaning prompts you to open your eyes and truly examine how things are. You will be surprised by what you can suddenly see.
Alternatively, the Owl symbolism is often thought to come to those who need to let go of some part of their life that is no longer needed. With this in mind, owl symbolism cues you to listen carefully to your inner voice and allow yourself to be guided to recapture the knowledge of your correct path in life.
Those of you who have Owl Totem as your totem animal will find yourself drawn to the dark and prefer to work during the night hours. For this reason, you have no fear of the occult, darkness or magic and often have the gift of prophecy.
Also, your wisdom gives you the power to extract secrets from those around you when you listen to its voice inside of you. As a result, you will hear not what others are saying, but what they are thinking and feeling by detecting the subtleties of voice that others cannot understand.
Native American tribes (primarily plains’ Indians) viewed the owl as a protector against harm and their feathers were ritually worn to ward of evil spirits.
Native Americans associated the meaning of owl with wisdom, foresight, and keeper of sacred knowledge. This may largely be due to the fact that the owl is a great foreteller of weather conditions.
Also, its ability to see at night is a legend among the Native Americans, and this attribute would be invoked during ceremonies when an oracle of secret knowledge was required.
Ancient Athenians made the owl an emblem of wisdom and even emblazoned the image of the owl on their coinage. To the ancient Greeks, the owl is a symbol of Athene who is a goddess of foresight & knowledge.
Seeing an owl means that there is a message that you must listen to, or a warning that you must be cautious about. You need to rely on your inner guidance if you want to always be one step ahead.
This also applies when it comes to love because not all prospects of love can end in a happy ever after. As much as you want to make it work, there are just some things in this world that are beyond your control. It’s so easy to get lost in the thrills of a new love that can make you lose track of time and your whole focus. The owl symbolism wants you to be open to receive love but to also be wise and not lose yourself in it.
Everybody needs help and guidance, no matter how strong you think you may be. But you are discerning and wise, and this will help you make the best decisions that will satisfy you and the people around you.
My final thoughts on the Owl Spirit Animal and its Symbolism. The owl spirit animal symbolizes your wisdom and intelligence, and how you use these gifts to uplift your life and the life of others. You have the gift of foresight which also allows you to make the best decisions at any given moment.
You are wise with your time, with your affection, with your love, and with your relationships. You can make people feel safe and secure because of the sense of security and stability that you provide.
