Facing Our Fears Head-On
Like the owl itself which is often associated with the nighttime, an owl sighting is a signal to peer into the darkness and give thought to what we choose to avoid. In other words, if you go outside to avoid the 800-pound gorilla in your house (something that’s obvious but you’re not talking about it), the owl will hoot, telling you to go back inside to face it.

The owl, in his infinite wisdom, urges us to face our fears and to shine a light on the things that lurk in the shadows. Perhaps that’s why, for some, an owl sighting is seen as a negative experience—because the owl seeks to expose secrets. However, an owl sighting is often an omen of good because he helps free us from the things that can hold us back.
Messages From Spirit
An owl, like any bird or animal, can be a messenger from Spirit. Do you know someone who has crossed over who was always a straight shooter in life? Did they always get right to the point? Perhaps you know someone who believed this adage: “The truth shall set you free.” Now that they have passed, they might choose an owl to visit you, especially if you’re ignoring something important—purposefully or not. Also, if your loved one was just fond of this intelligent creature for its uniqueness and beauty, they will certainly send an owl to deliver a message. They certainly want you to know that they are around.
Your Spirit Animal
Anyone invoking the spirit of the owl will naturally become more observant and will also be able to see “signs” others often miss or overlook. If the owl is your spirit animal and you have an owl sighting, you may be an investigator of sorts—someone who seeks out the truth. There’s probably a driving urge in your life to uncover the truth and get answers to your questions—even the ones that seem uncomfortable or that no one wants to discuss.
Your Totem Animal
If you have an owl for a totem animal, there’s a good chance you have owl figurines and owl-related items in and around your home. You are also likely someone who seeks solace in the quiet moments. Whether it’s meditation, reading a book or just sitting by the ocean, you feel that wisdom can be found in silent moments.
Your Power Animal
Power animals are animals whose symbolism or traits we identify with, especially in urgent situations or in times of need. If the owl is your power animal, you are someone who seeks the truth. You need to get to the bottom of things and you probably have an intuitive sense of where to get your answers.
The Owl and the Akashic Records
The owl has the ability to travel between Heaven and Earth. They open doors and travel through different realms. There is also the belief that the owl has the ability to fly through the Akashic records, absorbing its wisdom and giving you access to information you may not otherwise receive. As described on Wikipedia.com, “… the Akashic records are a compendium of all human events, thoughts, words, emotions, and intents ever to have occurred in the past, present or future.” If you invoke the spirit of the owl, he will be your companion as you try to connect with your higher self and gain access to the guides, angels, and ancestors who guide you in life. However, you must only seek the owl’s assistance for your higher good—not for anything negative. The owl is no fool. Therefore, if you are harboring secrets or secret agendas, he will expose them.
Cultural Symbolism and Beliefs
To the Celts, owls were defenders of truth and honor. They did not condone deception or lies—especially the lies we tell ourselves. The Celts also believed these winged creatures acted as messengers between Earth and the Divine World. Both the Celts and ancient Egyptians believed that the owl guided souls in death; this kept them from losing their way.
Some Native Americans often refer to the owl as a “night eagle” because of its sharp vision. He is a harbinger of truth. Wearing owl feathers is usually part of a shaman’s attire. Shamans or medicine men/women believe the owl holds knowledge that can heal.
Dreams, Myths, and Legends
If you dream of an owl, it may be a sign there’s someone or something be wary of. However, it could just be a message from Spirit much the same as a literal owl sighting. Because the owl can travel through realms, it’s easy to see why he has a connection to negative things. However, the owl has a connection to truth, light, and wisdom.
