How to Decode a Personal Oracle

This intriguing submission from my website about an owl messenger reminds us that the same sign and symbol can be interpreted in a multitude of ways. Joy shares the synchronicity of how this particular message was decoded for her. All she needed was a heads up.

My Personal Oracle Story by Joy Marie Tafoya

My husband was planning a visit to his father’s house in Mammoth, a small town near the even smaller town of Oracle, Arizona. He also wanted to take some bricks from our backyard to his mother’s grave, so when family brought flowers, there would be a place to set the vases upon the grave.

I went to the backyard, and over in my garden was a white owl solar light. I took the owl in the house and asked my husband if he would like to put the owl on his mother’s grave and was going to tell him about the white owl story that an elder Native American woman had told me when I worked in the local nursing home as a CNA.  He said no, he did not want the owl, so I did not tell him the story.

This is what the Native American woman said to me so many years ago. As I went into her room to take her to breakfast, she said she had a visit from a white owl last night. It was outside her window and it told her that her dear friend, Annabelle, had passed in the night. She explained to me the Native American believe that the white owl flies with the spirit of the person who has passed from this life. When I asked staff about Annabelle, I was told, yes, she did pass away that night, but no one had told her friend yet, as they were waiting for her family to tell her.

I took the white owl light and put it on my brother’s grave instead. I took a photo of it. Then I began to notice white owls. One grave had a huge white owl statue that must have been two-feet tall. I looked up at the ove cast sky and saw the face of an owl in the clouds above and I began to feel uneasy even frightened.

I went home and tried to settle down. I picked up a book to read. I just had purchased a new one. It was EVERYDAY ORACLES by ANN BOLINGER-McQUADE.

Then there it was on pages 80 and 81. Ann tells of the white owl and the Native American belief that I had just been thinking about!  The white owl was my oracle. I read on these pages how the owl sees into the darkness, is the keeper of sacred knowledge and offers protection, intelligence, and support in times of transition. I began to realize that I had just come face to face with my oracle, though I didn’t know what my life transition is going to be yet. Maybe I will be able to cope with whatever is coming my way.

Now, using the formula for how personal oracles operate, let’s check in and see how the universe responded to Joy’s need.

Formula for personal oracles:
Need + delivery system + message = personal oracle
  • What was the need?
    • Joy was worried for her own safety based on the Native American’s belief  that owls can signal death.
  • What was the delivery system?
    • Her own gut feeling that guided her to read pages 80-81 in her new book EVERYDAY ORACLES.
  • What was the message?
    • Good news! Joy determined that she was not in imminent danger. She learned that owls are also keepers of sacred knowledge and offer protection, intelligence and support. 
The decoded message of Joy’s personal oracle calmed her down and made her feel like she could cope with whatever was coming her way.

Thanks again for taking the time to share your experience and your photos.
