    I had a dream a couple months ago. I don’t remember if I was an owl or not. I was in a room with ten or so other owls. It was in the middle of a war. I don’t know if it was between owls or owls and another species. We had been captured. We were tied down. I lost my sense of direction. We were either on the wall or the floor. All of a sudden, the room was alive with the northern lights, or something like it. It looked like… you know the sped up videos of cars going by on a busy highway. But it was green and blue and purple. It was beautiful. Do you know what this might mean?

    Recently experienced seeing through owl’s eyes, tried several times to stop bcs I was afraid & would continue to go back into it, after a while I stopped resisting & decided to see what it was trying to show me. I saw beautiful different shades of night time gray sky against light of the moon & black birds flying;it took me to someone’s house & I watched a child sleeping but didn’t recognize the child nor the house, other strange things happened.. I have seen through other animals eyes before but this was first time looking through owls eyes.

    See things, but dont have understanding. So often owl look stupid to other stupid people, but owl have problem to do something with this. If you know something because of your intuition and it is obvious for you, it means nothing for most. Owl is very weak in fights because owl dont see sense in nonsense fight. Only way to be an owl is to do what you plan and want to do, pay less attention to most and give yourself to few. Make success from your big faith in power than other cant see. In long run owl win if only it is not mean to betray itself.
