It has often been understood and taught that an initiate must first reach out to a specific Spirit, Entity, Totem, or Deity they wish to work with as their chosen Patron in order to pursue an alliance with them. But what is less often acknowledged is the more important occurrence in which Patrons choose their initiates first without being asked to. An invitation to become an initiate is extended from the Patron because they recognize their own attributes, coherence, and compatibility within the new adept, and want to help them or grow their reach within humanity. This could be to help them spread awareness, or offer them protection and guidance.

If we do feel ready to work with a Patron but haven’t felt their presence yet, we can ask them to appear and respond to us. We can invite them to make their presence known so that a relationship can develop. This is an important step that we often overlook when working with new energies. We cannot just expect protection or favors without earning it. A Patron represents those who emulate what they are known for. And this can extend beyond cultural, ethnic, or spiritual lineages.

A Winged Messenger- the Rare Melanistic Black Barn Owl

Similar to the Raven or Crow, Owls can come at a critical time as an omen for a death soon to come. But death can come symbolically and metaphorically as well as physically. Owls denote a time of great transformation and invite us to transmute what no longer serves our best interest into something that does.

When a Melanistic Owl appears in a vision or dream, it emphasizes the rarity of something special and sacred. This could be you personally, or a person you have met, or a person yet to arrive in your life. This could also be an omen of a true miracle that is about to happen or has happened to you recently. On a darker note, this could symbolize the feeling of being trapped, caged, or confined without the ability to be or feel free.
