Why the Owl?
In her journey studying various healing methods of the world, Velina often came upon Shamanic Practitioners who told her that Owl was her Totem. They believe that all animals as well as plants offer healing through their “medicine”. Velina wasn’t so sure she understood or even believed in it, but when she investigated “Owl Medicine”, she knew they were right.
Velina is very respectful, only offering what her clients are asking from her. But if you want to know what is under the surface where you may be in the dark, she will illuminate that which most others can not see. This is what the Shamans would call her “Owl Medicine”.
Have no fear as the truth shall set you free. And it is only you who can know for certain what that truth is. Velina will offer her guidance and suggestions but knows that she is only a facilitator. You are the driver and master of your journey. She is at your service to provide whatever support you deem fit for this journey.
What is “Owl Medicine”?
The following are excerpts from sources that describe Owl Medicine:
Owl sees what we want to remain hidden. Owl is honest and sees directly into our heart and soul. Although we have become most familiar with her symbolism of being wise, there is more to her. In many Native American tribes, Owl is the Wise One and the honest one or True Seer.
They see her as a cunning and silent observer who sees all. She is the one who sees clearly through to even the most concealed deception. She sees the tricks we play on ourselves and others. She sees our manipulations and does not hesitate to call us out on them. She tells no lie and she does not look away.
Owl reveals one’s deceptions and when Owl Medicine is at work deceptions are exposed. As many of us struggle with the truth and lies we hide within, Owl sees them clearly. Owl brings these deceptions forward and looks within us with giant piercing eyes. She looks into the depths of people and sees them for who they are deep down. When Owl is asked to reveal something she does it with naked honesty.
Owl’s comfort with pointing out the areas where we hide and stumble is striking. This ability is not exclusive to those around her. Owl also sees her own inner demons and regularly faces them. In some cases, it is hard for Owl to remember that others do not contain her unique gift of acceptance and her willingness to face her inner demons.
Owl does not mean to bring fear to others, her true intention is to bring peace within. She is practicing her gift as she best knows how in hopes that you will open your heart and mind to accept your growth potential. Her goal is to make these areas known so one can work on strengthening one’s character.
Owl people are genuinely compassionate, and they care deeply for those she reads. If you open your heart and mind, Owl has a great many lessons to teach.
