Meet Your Spirit Animal
A spirit animal characterized by a personal relationship to the individual it is associated with. You can have one or several spirit animals throughout your life, during a specific phase of your life, or on specific occasions.
It is that connection at the individual level that differentiates the power animal from the animal totem that tends to symbolize a group or person’s identity. As such, power animals are the equivalent of animal spirit guides or spirit animals.
Your spirit animal often represents qualities and attributes that you may see in yourself. Your spirit animal is typically associated with traditional as well as modern Western shamanic practices. During initiations or shamanic journeys, the shaman would find one or several animals that she or another person is associated with. With this spirit animal card reading, you skip the journey and will receive the answer in another way.
Traditionally, the spirit animal is used for guidance, like an ally on the path. Call upon it whenever and wherever you desire and need it, and it will encourage you and teach you how to align yourself with your highest and deepest powers.
Think of your spirit animal as a guardian spirit or spirit guide. It’s like a “personal guide or protector” that has a personal affinity with the person it’s associated with.
