Yesterday it was almost dusk when we returned home from our road trip. I grabbed the phone to make a call. Entering my little den, I was amazed to see this large bird land in the camphor tree. We had made contact in that moment. Our deliberate gaze seem to have a meaningful purpose. An owl in the daylight is rare. I ran for my camera while he patiently waited out on a limb. With the zoom lens, I could see it was a barred owl posing as big as a cat!
I knew it was a sign from the angels. I looked up the symbolism in Animal-Speak by Ted Andrews:
"The owl is a symbol of the feminine, the moon, and the night. It has been called a cat with wings. It has great vision and hearing. The barred owl is the champion vocalist among owls.
The barred owl has a benign nature, and this is what is most outstanding about it. It is a great actor and can put on quite a show. Many believe its vocal performances are designed to put other animals and people off. It reflects the ability of this owl to teach us how to use the voice for greater effects."
As I watched him fly away, he let out a Who? Who? Who?
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
