Owl Medicine: the Wonder of the Who, Why, and When of Moonlit Truth

by Mar 15, 2023Bear Blog0 comments

“Who? Who are you?” Who do you want to become? What are your gifts to give the world?

That’s the sacred medicine song of the Owl Spirit Animal Totem, which teaches us to listen to Truth and not be deceived.

The Owl flies in darkness, with a keen perception for Light, blending both Dark and Light into One.

As Jamie Sams, co-author of the Medicine Cards, writes:

“Owl medicine is symbolically associated with clairvoyance, astral projection, and magic, both black and white. Owl is called Night Eagle on several medicine wheels used by Amerindian teachers. Traditionally, Owl sits in the East, the place of illumination. Since time immemorial, humanity has been afraid of the night, the dark, and the unseen – waiting fearfully for the first crack of morning light.”

The Owl understands the divine Magic of Wrong and Right. Like the Moon, the Owl’s night medicine maintains a powerful grip on the human psyche. It teaches lessons of confronting fears, protecting personal power, and unveiling the sacred truth within. The Owl calls us to do great spiritual work, which can sometimes be messy and complicated. 

But aural awakening is the reward – a removal of shadow so we see Truth in all its glorious luminosity.

When you hear the Owl’s call, especially in the deepest dark of night, don’t ignore it. You are being called to do sacred and important work key to spiritual enlightenment and atonement. The truth is waiting to be revealed. Follow the call – discover what awaits.

Open Your Eyes to the Truth in the Darkness

The Owl is about uncovering perception. Owls can spot their prey from over a mile away and have remarkable auditory abilities that practically make them living radio telescopes. 

The ears of this bird are offset, with one higher than another, creating an uncanny auditory symmetry that’s a perfect specimen of nature’s magic. Owls are able to pinpoint the exact nature and location of a sound without moving their body. 

Those who practice Owl medicine are blessed and endowed with clairvoyant and clairaudient gifts. The Owl can see what others cannot, intuitively inward, the mark of true wisdom. When others are deceived, the Owl instinctively deciphers the truth with razor-pitched clairvoyance, spotting a kernel of truth from the trees’ green depths with stunning accuracy.

Athena, the great goddess of wisdom, had an Owl for a companion and talisman, revealing unseen truths to her. The Owl lit up Athena’s blind side to reveal the whole truth, pure and unadorned. 

When you pull Owl energy, you are being called to use your powers of keen and honest observation to intuit some life situation or energy. The Owl is befriending you and will help you perceive the wholeness of truth in the question you are being called to ask. She’ll bring truth messages through dreams, meditation, or incarnate intuition. Be open to signs, signals, and perceptions. Truth is calling if you open your ear and learn to listen to internal instinct.

To nurture Owl medicine, trust in your intuition and perception. Nourish a keen instinct for truth. It’s calling if you listen – free of ego, pride, and distraction. Avoid people who seek to steal or drain your energy. Flow with love, moonlight, and grace. Truth is subtle, but its razor-sharp wit is clear and significant when you learn to listen for its presence and glory in the shadow of the night.

Instinctual Magic of Nighttime Renewal

Owl medicine’s magic transforms disadvantage into advantage, hurt into healing, tears into the essence of laughter. It absorbs the benign in a nourishment of digestion, excreting destructive energies to heal the body, mind, and soul. 

When we fly breathlessly on the wings of the Owl, we see through shadow in the crystal clear perception of the moonlight, and all becomes clear through the clairvoyance of sound and the razor-sharp subtleties of sublime instinct.

When we open our minds to the magic of Owl medicine, all becomes clear and our lives recognize the intense meaning that has always existed blind in the nighttime skies. Dawn is coming, and in the meantime, you can clearly see the edges of truth in the moonlight shadow of sound and sight.

Follow your instinct – it will serve you well. 

Under Owl medicine, explore the darkness of the unknown, relive the imagination of the night, bask in the starlight, and appreciate the crispness of midnight wind. The mysteries of this life are fascinating. Revel and reveal – it’s been here this whole time if we only open our eyes and ears to the wonderment of the infinite in the everyday grandeur of the moment.

Become One with the Tree

To open our eyes to the magic of Owl medicine, we must be patient. Stop running the pace of the capitalist clock. Become one with the tree and all will be revealed.

At Bear Blend, we like to take a moment to get our bearings, and this becomes especially critical when manifesting Owl medicine. Drop what you think you’re supposed to be doing. Appreciate the essence of the moment. You’ll be surprised by what time can reveal when you let it be. 

That’s why we encourage taking some time for a smoke or a moment of mindful reflection. Roll up a spliff of herbs and contemplate a dream in the evening of nighttime. When we stop, smoke, and stare, the truth is often revealed. Unwind and let the richness of the moment manifest the truth you’ve always known.

This is important, sacred work. Slow down; stop and look.

Own medicine burns yellow in the night, bringing the light and truth of day into the darkness of night. Be open to what your mind reveals. The truth has always been there unveiled with the patient observation of perception. Notice the subtle details. They will bring you where you need to be.

The Owl asks: “Who? Who are you?” Who do you want to be? Take your time to answer. 

You are everything you need to be. The truth is you; everything else is only illusion. Reveal and become the next manifestation of forgotten grace.

We are the sleep we’ve always needed.
