Join The Higherside Chats podcast as host, Greg Carlwood, talks owls, aliens and synchronicity with guest, Mike Clelland.
Many of us have heard the stories of weird, ranging from missing time, alien encounters, frequent visitations and even experiencing other dimensions and beings through altered states, but what we may overlook is the peculiar presence of owls during these paranormal proceedings. Adding fuel to this fire is the ever obvious use of the owl peppered throughout both the worlds of occult and conspiracy. This hidden symbol suggests not only the importance of the owl in elite esoteric symbolism, but an otherworldly essence associated with these nocturnal creatures. Let's get into it.
2:42 Mike begins by giving an overview of the relationship of the owl to high strangeness. As Mike points out, while he may not be the first researcher to take note of the owl, he has coupled this with his personal experience to establish a connection between UFO contact and owls
. He also elaborates on a particular pattern, known as screen memories, in association with owls during missing time events or alien abductions. Mike contends that owls show up regularly during highly charged human experiences as a totem animal, and have been recognized throughout ancient cultures
as the messengers.
15:59 Returning to the more mystical realm of "perceived owls" during out-of body incidents, Mike details one story of an owl encounter by a woman during a "heroic dose" of mushrooms and the significance of it's appearance during this spiritual transformation. Clelland continues to drive home the power of the owl by detailing various accounts of owl sightings in connection to unearthly experiences.
22:42 With many of the stories have a connecting thread, it is easy to see how one might wonder is there is a particular type of person more susceptible to supernatural encounters. Mike describes the work of researchers, Dr. Kirby Surprise
and Gibbs Williams
, and their exploration of synchronicity prone people, as well as elaborates on his analysis of recurring UFO experiencers.
30:35 Another interesting aspect to the owl phenomenon is the owl acting as a messenger
. Clelland details a few examples from his book involving these types of experiences and explains a possible agenda behind these cryptic telepathic messages.
