I’ve been thinking about boundaries and the wisdom in defining them. The image of the owl came to mind as I journaled this AM.
Because owls and all creatures of the animal realm are pure energy, and they come from a place of wholeness. As such, they communicate in a unified voice. They speak in the language of the trees, the wind, the moon, the sky, etc.
I found a great article which helped me process the importance of boundaries in my own life. The advice has the silent wisdom I saw in a tiny owl I watched in a tree at 1:30 AM a few months back.
I stood for 30 minutes just watching this little guy stare back at me. I knew I was receiving a message. I didn’t quite know yet what that message was. I feel now that the message is to listen to MY OWN INNER QUIET WISDOM. It’s there if I just stay quiet and listen.
I have been searching for the kind of owl it was and finally saw the kind in this video:

An idea is building and I thank the women I met with last night for our initial brainstorm. Stay tuned as we move from the concept to the concrete! What unfolds will be a surprise to all involved. A beautiful surprise!
