Because the owl sees in the dark it represents our intuitive sense that ‘sees’ what is happening in the subtle areas of our feeling and experience. This sense ‘feeds’ by watching or acting as an integrating function with the many dark or hidden aspects of our experience and behaviour. Because this part of our mental process is aware of the hidden activities in the depths of our body and mind, it can initiate our conscious self into the mysteries of life and death. If one can imagine having a council of all living things, we would all have in common the drive to reproduce, and there would be huge links of understanding regarding care and rearing of young and perhaps of love for mate. The unconscious seems to have a sense of this synthesis of all life, and the owl, representing it, speaks with this sort of collective wisdom; a wise advisor.

Because the owl as a dream symbol is an actual doorway to the usually hidden side of life, we may sometimes feel fear or danger in regard to it. In some mythologies the owl was connected with death, and might act as a messenger regarding the death of a family member. For instance in Jewish tradition it is unlucky to dream of an owl, but okay to dream of any other bird.

Hi tony,

I am starting a new business and dreamt two nights ago of being inside a house and seeing a white owl flying directly towards me, I said oh that’s for me and walk up just before the owl reached me I was not scared. Last night I was laying down with a puppy on my chest and saw a large chocolate brown owl standing next to me very close. I was not scared at all but in my dream thought it strange that such a large owl would be there. The owl blinked a fewntimes and then walked away and I saw it walk up a tree. If you could provide any insight I would be grateful.

I went for skydiving and was asked to clear a written test but I missed one question with 2 subparts and was told that you missed it. So as a part of that question was – which mode/ camera you will choose to click a picture of an owl ( a latte brown shy owl was demonstrated by 2 weatish complexion ladies wearing dark green clothes n lil not gold jewelery) and the options as an answer I had to choose from were slr, dslr, night mode with flash and another option. I told them I dont know the answer then one of the ladies pressed the green button and said ok. Now, about the owl – it was sitting on a lot of wheat grains. There were slight movements in the owls feet as there was some limelight on the owl from somewhere outside. It was moving lil backwards and its feet was sliding on the wheat grains and neck was moving in a shy way not much but there was no space for the owl to move backwards. This was the dream. Ok now what I was doing yesterday – I tried to learn photography and looked at the pics we took in a national park and I looked at the pics of 2 owls for a few seconds which m going to delete today. I have a husband only left on this earth in my family and I think god is feeling itchy in his bum seeing me happy and keeps me scaring with such kind of dreams. Whenever I search of any dream I had it shows death of family member. Bad news blah bla.. I dont want to dream!!!
