An experienced shaman led a group meditation to discover our power animal. During the meditation, she told us to imagine we were in Africa, only I wasn’t in Africa — I was somewhere in North America. A Snowy Owl met me and pierced me with her eyes and then clawed my stomach. I then flew on her back through the snowy, coniferous forest in the dead of night. I didn’t get the chance to ask the shaman what it might have meant. I e-mailed her but she hasn’t responded.
So, does anyone here know about Snowy Owls as it broadly relates to Shamanism? What does my totem animal signify? What could my experience mean?
