In many cultures the owl is considered a bad omen. Just for interest's sake check out the thread by an ex-member: The White Owl and then do a bit of research on that member. Not trying to say anything specific... His owl sighting was 6 months before "the incident" after all. Perhaps the owl was an omen. Perhaps the owl was just an ordinary bird he happened to pass along the way a couple of times...

Owls also symbolize wisdom and are able to see hidden truths and deceptions, maybe the owl needs to communicate with you

Why not sit quietly (in meditation) next time the owl is near to you and calmly ask the owl "what it is you need to know" ?

Then visuals a blank piece of paper and a pen in your minds eye and wait to see if anything is communicated to you

The blank paper and pen is used with in the minds eye because if the message was to be spoken to you ....
The mind if not use to such ways of communication will sometimes try to change or confuse the message
(out of preconceived beliefs or fears )
This is not so easily done when it is visually seen

By the way there are also many ways of spiritually protecting oneself against any outside influences... that do work extremely well ..... so if you feel you may need a little extra spiritual protection at the moment
then please let me know can also u2u me

BlackOps719 that video clip was so funny

Accually, I read that if an owel sits on the roof of your house and hoots, it means that someone near you is going to die but I think this is an old wives tale. I have searched but did not find much that could help you exept for" In early Indian folklore, Owls represent wisdom and helpfulness, and have powers of prophecy. This theme recurs in Aesop's fables and in Greek myths and beliefs. By the Middle Ages in Europe, the Owl had become the associate of witches and the inhabitant of dark, lonely and profane places, a foolish but feared spectre. An Owl's appearance at night, when people are helpless and blind, linked them with the unknown, its eerie call filled people with foreboding and apprehension: a death was imminent or some evil was at hand. " ( Hope it helps!

oh my god, that is just so funny.... Im sorry, but I just could not stop laughing when I read your post....hilarious!!

....but I wouldn't mind in the least bit ,,, as I have a lot of time for Owls, they rank up very very high on my list of bestest birds...

... basically though ... what XSheep said....

ask the owl what it is trying to tell you, and do it in a meditation 'preferably' ,

but yeah., .... I think its great, love it !!!

Some possible "omens" that are often associated with owls.
It's funny because Owls are so old and have always been held in a mysterious light so much to the point where the omens become contradictory since so many different cultures have put their own meaning to it, here's the site with some info on the mythology and folklore on owls.

1 : impending death 2 : success in imminent venture 3 : woman will be married into the family 4 : disturbance 5 : imminent travel 6 : guests arriving 7 : mental distress 8 : sudden death 9 : good fortune

It would be awesome to get some video or pictures of it like others have said.
When I use to live on a lot of wooded land in the Pine Barrens we had an owl that would always land on the back of our AC unit in the bedroom and make tons of noise my cats would FREAK but they didn't scare it away it just looked at them like they were crazy, very annoying haha.

I remember a few years ago I had a humming bird flying right into my face, it scared me but was an awesome experience to see it so close up it just flew right up to my nose and practically made me go crossed eyed my mom was in awe when it happened, I think it was just because of my perfume though but still an awesome thing to see.
Also wherever I've ever lived we'd always have a wood pecker.

Keep us updated though see if any of these omens or anything start to become true , maybe keep a little journal of what's going on with you and nature when you see it and see if you can find any cycles or anything.

It is mating/breeding season. Especially forest owls like to keep their teritory clear from unwanted intruders during this time. I can know because I own one myself. The behavior you describe is typical for them. They will fly just inches over your head and make " eary " sounds. This behavior will not occur during the time the owl has no mating or breeding going on. They are usually quite shy towards people (unless raised by them of course)

Have you ever seent the movie Labrynth (sp) with David Bowie? maybe he is chasing you...
On a serious note, i have been reading a book called "Communion" about a mans UFO and Alien Enconuters and they seem to place an Owl as a memory for some of the times when he is abducted..Thats me just throwing something out there - but i honestly think you may be close to a nest and not realize it, or have before and the owl is keeping an eye on you. my 2 cents...

Isn't there a big owl that they worship at Boheimien Grove. Its Called Mollock or something. Maybe this has something to do with it?

I am actually kind of freaked out. I have had problems with ghosts or something in the past but havent had problems since I got the issues fixed. I will bring a camera when I go out to smoke at night to try to get pics

LOL - lots of replies of death! i can see paranoia setting in!!!

Anyway, I'll tell you a what i was told about Owls following you as i have seen the samething happen to my mum and she has told me it has happened many times in her life.

My mum was told by her grandmother (Oma Tick Tock who was supposed to be a witch, but thats another story, very cool storys aswell ) that when a owl visits you and follows you it is a spirit of someone you were close to you watching over you/protecting you and is a good sign (which i have totally forgotten the reasons as i am drunk, let me get back to you to elaborate when not drunk

Thats better then the all the your going to die posts isnt it?!?!?

Owls can tune into you. I had an owl brush it's wing against my ear as
I was riding my mountain bike at night. What happened - I was riding
my mountain bike home pretty late one full moon night. I had to go about 3 miles on a paved country road and my light batteries had died. In the first mile I saw the owl sitting on the telephone pole wires. As I approached
the owl flew ahead of me. About 600 yards ahead I encountered the
owl again on the electrical wires. This little game repeated about 4 times
until I turned off on a side street. I figured the owl stayed on the main
road and had no way of knowing I had turned off to another street.
A wooded mountainous area. After about a 1/2 mile down the road as I was biking all of a sudden the owl came from behind, swooped down and just lightly brushed my left ear with it's wing. Amazingly skillful move. Obviously the owl was acknowledging our little game. When I told my girlfriend about it she said,
"Maybe the owl just wanted to touch you." Now that comment my friend
is what I call projection.

Sure is interesting to read all the responses....

I've got a few crows that follow me sometimes on my early morning walk through a eucalytus grove. Some mornings they fly from tree to tree above me caw-ing and caw-ing. So I'm careful as I walk near the cliffs, but after 15 minutes or so, they go on their way. Weird. I really do wonder what they are trying to say.

I was reading up on some interesting stuff about elementals. Apparently some of them can appear as animals, rocks, plants, etc... to communicate or even to mess with us. I need to read more on that, cause it's freaky and fun.

Well, what does the owl look like, what color is it, species? Since you're not intruding upon it's breeding area than it's most likely trying to tell you something. The re-occurring presence of an animal as strong as an owl means something, what, not sure.

The Owl

There are approximately 135 species of Owl, seventeen which are found in North America. Their secretive habits, quiet flight and various calls from whistles, screeches and hoots, have made them objects of superstition and even fear in some parts of the world. Some native tribes see the owl as a symbol of death while other tribes believe they embody the mysteries of shamanism and sorcery. Individuals with this totem are private complex people and don't like others to know what they are really thinking. This can sometimes lead to misunderstandings especially in the area of personal relationships.

Owls have many abilities which set them apart from all other birds. Their wings which are extremely soft and thick, allow them to fly silently as they can swoop down on unsuspecting prey. They are able to slip in and out of places unnoticed and can teach us how to do the same.

Their eyes are large and forward facing giving them a wise appearance. They have a greater range of motion in their necks than any other animal with a spinal column. Owls turn their heads rather than their eyes, which are stationary. Their night vision is so powerful that they can see prey when the light is the equivalent of a candle burning 2500 feet away!

Their powers of vision are matched by their almost otherworldly hearing abilities. In studies done with owls that were placed in totally light free rooms, the owls were able to locate a mouse by sound alone. Those with this medicine are usually gifted with clairvoyant and clairaudient abilities. Souls who are born with this totem have chosen a path which suggests a need to refine and perfect these gifts for the aid of others. They make excellent therapists, psychologists and counselors.

Active at dawn and dusk owls are sometimes referred to as the night eagle, a messenger from the darkness and a guide through all the mysteries that it contains. It teaches us how to embrace our personal darkness without fear. Owls are sometimes thought to come to those that are about to die. This does not mean a physical death as much as it means the letting go of some part of yourself that is not serving you. Owls with their spectral senses help guide us through the dark tunnels of fear, change and uncertainty to the brilliant light shining at the other end. If the owl appears in your life thank it for its willingness to guide you through its shadowy realm to the other side of promise and joy.

Owl knows that all apparent manner of death is in fact a liberation into a new life. Something must first be cleared away for anything new to be born. When a person moves, leaves a job or relationship, has a baby, adopts a new animal friend, something in the old way of life had to die for the new to be created. At the time it may seem incredibly painful because we have been taught that death is an ending, not a new beginning, and that what is in the process of being born is always more beneficial than the old. The pain and grief is extended and heightened when we try to hang on to what was because we believe that s the best we would ever have. The unknown can seem dreadfully forbidding, how will we cope, who will be there if we stumble, what if we fail?

Owl can take us beyond those thoughts and fears, for Owl sees far into the future and knows that even after the darkest night there is a new dawn that is approaching. It is as inevitable as babies crying and of buds bursting for th from plants in the spring. From every death something new must emerge for life is ever renewing itself. The Crow that was taken by an Owl last summer may reappear the following spring as a nestling. The Berries that were eaten by a Bear one year may reappear the next as a bird, an ant or a human being. All of life is interconnected and we are all part and parcel of the same fabric that wends its way through the stories of our own life and death. Death then becomes not a loss but a new adventure to be explored with great abandon and joy.

It is a lovely thing to see and owl. You are lucky, define your own reality create from it what you will. You have the answers to the owl it is your unique reality. Down the road from me is a snowy owl i

I have to agree it's probably a nest or something along those lines. There's a bird in our back yard that always dives at me and my son. If it notices us in the front yard it will sit and "yell" at us.

I don't think it's paranormal but a strange, deranged bird.

ok I do not know how to do this but this is the link to pics I just took of the evil looking owl. I swear it has an inverted cross on its head.
