A friend of mine once told me (he is Native American, Creek Indian, from Alabama) that the sighting of a white owl was a blessing. We had been discussing owls and I remember him telling me this. I would take it as a positive omen, and I bet things have been going better for you since you saw it
and it sounds as if you have come to terms with issues you had in your life, you have courage in speaking of your former despair and the actions you attempted upon yourself. So, take it as a sign (you certainly noticed the white owl, huh?) and create positive energy, all will be good for you.

I had a huge white owl living in a burrow behind my house once upon a time. Fearful beast. Saw it many times during the daylight. Sometimes sitting and a few times diving on things to eat. Took a few puppies one time and I had to deal the deed to the owl.

I live in another place now and look forward to owls. Owls keep vermin back and are generally good omens (for those that believe in such things.) There are at least two medium sized ones and a few really small ones back in the woods. As long as they are around the field mice and rats never show up- fewer rabbits too.

As to the zing about suicide and you (Weise) being screwed- true. Glad you are past that. Hard road to deal with and I hope you don't travel it again. Your grandmother's story- the owl was HER symbol- she told you the story!

Owls are perceived as wise, what they really are is perceptive.

Don't know what medicine they have you on but an herb that works real well to relieve 'jitters' is Saint John Wort. Horrible name but great herb, cheap too. Good luck and don't let the down times grab hold of you anymore.

Hi Weise,

Hope you are doing well. I hope some of these responses calmed your fears as to what the omen of a white owl could be. Anyway, I tend to find that I have days where things that seem out of place, appear to remind me that life can be amazing. Moments that make you pause and rethink EVERYTHING. Sort of like a perspecacity check. It sounds to me like it was key timing for you to have such a synchronicity in your life.

Its my opinion that whatever your initial reaction to seeing the owl, it would be indicicative of what it means. If you felt a sense of "hey thats cool" or if you felt a sense of "something is very very wrong" it may be relevant. Don't go too much by classical symbology. (well said in Lady V's post)

According to some, when a black cat crosses your path, that's bad luck. Well many years ago a black cat crossed my path, and has brought me nothing but happiness since (he is on my lap right now)! Now whenever a black cat randomly crosses my path I do not feel some sense of "oh no bad luck!" but rather I feel a sense of "awesome I love black cats!"

Anyway when it comes to symbology itself, White animals usually have a symbollic connotation of goodness, purity, friendship etc. If I had to evaluate the spiritual significance of your experience, I would say SOMEONE somewhere wanted to let you know you weren't alone and wanted to give you a "wake up" as to how things that seem unlikely or improbable can occurr when you least expect it.

It sounds like a very fortunate omen to me. You can do a search on animal symbology and spirit animal discovery etc. Maybe you will understand more if you still are concerned.

Just think, Harry Potter has a white owl, and he made it through many close calls.


*ps if you are on prescription meds, especially ssri's (ie prozac, zoloft,etc), do not take St. Johns Wart. It could cause dizziness, migranes, nausia, light sensitivity, etc.

Hmmm...

Pet Owls as ratters?
Sounds interesting to me.
I've always wanted an Owl as a pet.
Seeing one during the day was probably just an omen pointing out how his life had turned another corner. Or maybe how close a call with death he had?

Well I decided to bring this post back up because I believe it may have more significance now than we had originally thought. It has been discovered that the Member "Weis" who originally started this thread was involved in a horrific school shooting yesterday in Red Lake Indian Reservation, Minnesota.

I started to remember, from what I know of Ojibwa religion, that the owl represents Fear and Death. Which is unique because most other Natives consider the owl as a symbol of wisdom and good luck. The sighting of an owl in daytime is pretty unique on its own but a "white owl" is very rare and I can understand why Weis was concerned.

Now here is something else that also happened on 3/22 which is also a bizarre event especially in context to Native beliefs.
Bigfoot tracks in Red Lake

I will continue looking into this matter.

Actually it reminds me on mine previous expirience with seeing white owl, but it was at night, and once even an owl tried landing in front of me when i was sitting on the porch, they are so silent believe me, you can't hear them when flying. I think this owl was just another owl, but this could be omen in that way too.
That was bad time for me when these owls appeared.
It was few more bad years after that.
Is there any kind of inverting it or good omens??

It is too bad "Weise" is no longer with us to comment on any of this.

He killed himself and others, somebody should of recognized his pain in his posts and helped him.

Its too bad I didnt get the chance to conversate with him, I would of helped... ask superdude.. for a while I thought he was falling off the deep end but then I threw a rope out to make sure all was ok.

just my thoughts
