Animal Totem: Snowy Owl?

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?

Since the owl as a power totem can represent that you are a very private person I would suggest that you go to this site and read about your totem. It’s very informative, and there is more than one meaning.

As far as I heard, for some Native American people the owl is a messenger of bad news…

No ‘shaman’ or anyone that charges money for services or ceremonies should be trusted to be legit. (As far as Native America goes at least…) If she wasn’t and only cares about the money, you know why she hasn’t responded, sorry.
