owl medicine






A handful of feathers, scattered under an old pinon tree.
An owl pellet, found nearby, filled with small treasures.
A nest, hidden in an alcove in the rock.
A day, blessed by the gods of the canyons.

Linking up with Chrisy down under at living a good north coast life and sharing a little of the natural world around us.

    1. Not sure what I'll do with all those feathers yet. I'm still soaking in their magic! Though I am getting ready to dissect that pellet. xx

  3. the red dirt prairie girl sent an owl pellet to me this past spring.
    i stood over it, praying, pondering, praying some more, before breaking it open.
    i have saved the little bones in a special jar.

    what a blessing to you, especially now, when you so very much need it, a pellet, and all those feathers!

    1. It was that same red dirt prairie girl that got me hooked on owl pellets. ;)
      And yes, it was a blessing indeed to find feathers scattered under a tree, but also a pellet near the same tree. Strange how these things come to us when we need them the most. xx

  4. How simply wonderful!
    What sort of bird do you think those feathers are from? AND that nest, amazing! It's like that cut out in the rock was made for it.
    So very cool ❤️
    As always, thanks for linking up at reconnect with nature xx

    1. I am thinking they're owl feathers. There was an abundance of owl evidence in the area. And shortly after finding the feathers, I came across the nest! It's almost too much....all this life and death and mystery....in one day's time. xx

    There's a message in it for you.
    But, you already know that. Just close your eyes and listen and you will see.
    You are blessed, big time.
