Spirit animals, or power animals, have always been a part of the Shamanic tradition. They are also called Totems by Native Americans and you can think of them as Earth Angels if you are religious. Power animals come to us in order to guide us, protect us and/or to simply remind us of our connection to Earth and Spirit. By watching their energies and behaviors we can learn how to better survive and thrive. They can be great teachers and I think connecting with them is one of the most fun and exciting ways to learn about our own nature.
So how do you know what your power animal is?? Some of the ways to connect include:
- Simply being aware of the animals around you or any animals that keep coming into your life.
- Getting out into nature and observing any animals around you.
- Writing down your dreams as soon as your wake up and noticing any creatures.
- Set an intention, before a meditation, to meet your power animal and then sit back and relax.
Once your animal comes to you, or you see a sign, learn as much as possible about it! Use your intuition. Ask for clarity. Have fun with the process and remember, they are here to help us navigate through life. Animals have so many lessons to teach us about our own personal Earth walks.
