The Wise Old Owl

Just like ourselves, crystals naturally come in all different shapes, sizes and colours, but can also be carved into different symbolic forms. The art of crystal carving is an ancient one that dates back to civilisations like the Mayans, Romans, Chinese and the Egyptians.

Just as each crystal has it's own unique properties, the shape or form of the crystal can also enhance it's inherent properties or even add new ones to the stone, which can enable us to utilise it in more or different ways. 

The meaning of the Owl

The owl is an incredibly spiritual creature, with one wing in this realm and one wing on the other side of the veil. They collect wisdom and knowledge on their journeys between the realms, sharing what they know to those lucky enough to hear their night call, or catch a glimpse of them.

With the nocturnal nature of the owl, their ability to see in the dark is interpreted as an ability to see what others cannot, unveiling hidden truths and seeing through deception. The owl guides us to follow our intuition and let go of any situations that no longer serves us. It calls you to allow yourself to be adaptable and allow the shifts that need to be, to be.

The owl is the patron animal of the Greek Goddess Athena - Goddess of Wisdom.
It was believed that if you saw an owl or had an affinity to them, Athena was at work, guiding you on your journey, protecting you from the godly realm.

How we love to use them!

  1. Wisdom and Intuition: Carved crystal owls can symbolise the ability to see beyond the surface and tap into deeper understanding and insight. They encourage us to trust our intuition and embrace our own inner wisdom. Keep one in your safe space for when you need reminding to trust in your inner wisdom and intuition. 

  2. Protection and Guidance: Owls are protectors and guides. Carved crystal owls bring a sense of protection and guidance, acting as a spiritual ally on your journey, guiding you through the tough times and encouraging you to take on the challenges that may come your way.

  3. Transformation: The owl is often associated with transformation and change. These beauties represent the ability to adapt and evolve, reminding you to embrace growth and transformation in your life. The owl will assist you in navigating transitions and finding clarity amidst change. Keep an owl on you through times of transition and transformation to assist through these times and keep you grounded in the knowledge that you are on the right path.

  4. Connection with the Divine: With one wing on the other side of the veil, owls are seen as messengers from the spiritual realm. Carved crystal owls can help you strengthen your connection with the divine and the unseen energies around us all. Having an owl with you during meditation serves as a reminder to stay open to spiritual guidance and to trust in the greater wisdom of the universe.

Each crystal has its own unique properties, so it's always a good idea to research the specific crystal you are working with to understand its individual energy and benefits, as well as the unique energy each shape brings. 

Remember, the most important thing is to connect with the crystal in a way that feels right for you. Trust your intuition and allow the crystal's energy to guide you on your magical journey.
