Tom Cowan in his book "Fire in the Head" speaks of the Celtic medicine people of very long ago, who would wear a headress and cape made of feathers
as they prepared for flight into the spirit realm. So people associating birds and bird experiences with that of taking flight from this world during
an abduction by ET's would fall into step with that. This would be true whether the trip is physical, mental, or spiritual.
The first experience that I can consciously remember began with what appeared to be a giant owl standing in the road in front of our house. It
was just standing there, staring at us, and even though it appeared to be about 3 feet tall, that never struck me as odd until I became an adult. I
have read many other accounts where people have seen or heard an owl in connection with their visitation/abduction experiences. Rabbits have also
played a part for me, and I have read accounts of others who have said the same thing. I think that is interesing because rabbit as a totem often
represents one who needs to work through fear.
