How To Embrace Your Spirit Animal for Additional Energy Support
Many cultures around the world view animals as teachers, passing along ancient wisdom and messages to help you navigate life. You might commonly know this as the "spirit animal."
Here are simple ways to become more aware of your Spirit Animal
A simple way to develop your awareness is to pay attention to your dreams. When I was about 5 or 6 years old I had a dream that I was looking outside my bedroom windows to the backyard and saw a wolf. As I grew older and my mother introduced me to Native American teachings, I found out the wolf was my main Totem animal who would always be with me to help empower and guide as needed.
The wolf energy was very strong in high school and it showed up in just about everything I did. That even included creating reports on them for class if appropriate and the wolf was my subject when designing my AP Art portfolio to be reviewed in 12th grade.
Another way to approach spirit animals is by becoming aware of the animals you encounter everyday. Let that be when walking, driving, when reading a book or even what you see on TV and observations from outside your homes land. My mother taught me, if you see a “sign,” and in this case the sign would be an animal, more then 3 times, that is an indication to pay attention and be open to receiving.
The next step would be to research the animal or insect you are seeing to understand the message. For example, the over all characteristics of the wolf expressed family connection, protector, teacher, wisdom, works in teams and can also be a leader. They are also one of the main animals connected to Mother Earth, strong ancient healing energy. So if I was on track and asked for a "sign" of confirmation or perhaps needed to change a certian pattern of behavior, the wolf would show up in symbolic ways to help remind me.
