FYI for those who do not know... We support a minor dream symbols search engine on our main page. I have about 1100 searchable symbols in the database right now from a variety of sources. This is a good reminder to myself that I need to update that database and add some more symbols soon. (If anybody likes to type information from books into spread sheets, just let me know and I can put you to serve).



As always any one symbol depends on it's context within the dream, and the definitions given are given in a generality of cases. In many cases owls in dreams at most often negative symbols. It is like a snake, hard to find a positive use for a snake haha.

However, in your case, the focus of the dream seemed to be the eyes and a little fear. IRL an owl has great big wide open eyes because they are nocturnal rodent hunters and they can see at night in very low light situations. So if this were to be used as a positive symbol it might be a message to say don't be fearful of what goes bump in the night and there is something that you need to be able to see.

Hope this helps some.

in Christ,
