Many moons ago there was a wise Shaman that lived among the wilds of nature. She wandered the trees giving reverence to all she saw, branch and animal alike. She healed all the people of her land with her herbs, drumming, stones and moon lore. But she was lonely as it was hard to find others like her and she spent much of her time wandering the forests and hills by herself.
On the night of the full moon she whispered to the Great Moon Mother “Oh great mother, I love being a healer and a priestess, but at times I am lonely. I wish I had someone to keep me company and be my companion, one that is wise and understood the depths of spirit and mystery of the divine, and the magic of the Universe. ”
Mother moon thought this was an excellent idea.
“I know of one wise being that flies between the worlds, not entirely of either but highly intuitive and wise, and this path can be lonely for him as well.” She said and out of bits of moon beams, dreams and night air she spun an owl to be the eternal friend and companion of the Shaman. “His name is Old Soul,” the Great Mother said. “As he is the voice and breath of the ancients.”
The Shaman was overjoyed and was happy as was the owl to be paired with the shaman and flew along side her on earth and was her spirit animal when he was called to the other side. This is how the shaman was gifted with deep visions and animal medicine to further guide her healing and help of others in her realm. The owl was gifted with roots to the earth that gave him strength and purpose.
They were connected forevermore under the light and magic of the Moon Mother. It is said that if you see the Owl flying in the night air, the Shaman is not far behind.

Threads of moonlight
Woven in your crown
All the eras of time
Reflected in your eyes
Love oceans deep
Flowing in your heart”
