How to Identify Your Spirit Animal
How to Identify Your Spirit Animal
Spirit animals are another form of spiritual guides, similar to a guardian angel. Spiritual guides present themselves to us however we are willing to see them. Therefore it is natural for many people to connect with their guides through spirit animals.
Here are some hints on finding and connecting with your personal spirit animal: 1 Your Spirit Animal Chooses You Your spirit animal is the embodiment of your subconscious mind and therefore cannot be chosen. It must choose you. In most cases, your spirit animal will present itself during a time when your mind is relaxed and able to wander internally, such as during dreams or meditation. Spirit animals may also reveal themselves in physical form, often displaying unusual behaviour or showing themselves several times in short succession. 2. Observe Nature Pay attention to the natural world and the animal kingdom around you, This will help prepare you for spirit animal connections. Your ability to find your spirit animal, and receptivity to their guidance, depends on your ability to observe the natural world and identify signs and symbols. 3. Animal Encounters Be open and attentive when animals appear in your life. Do not be afraid or dismissive. Instead, make it clear that your heart is open, especially if an animal behaves out of the ordinary. Take note of repetitive encounters with animals. Whether in physical or symbolic form, such as an object or an image. Regular repetition may be a sign to determine your spirit animal. 4. Conduct Ceremonies Conduct a ceremony to call in your spirit animal. Ceremonies may involve burning of medicinal plants, as well as chanting and creation of altars. During your ceremony, ask for your spirit animal to show themselves, in vision, dream or live form. Do not question or over think their appearance. Rather, ask for their support and guidance. 5. Research Animals Of Interest Your spirit animal may have been your favourite animal from growing up, a favourite pet, or perhaps an animal you have had repeated sightings of or have dreamt of. Research animals that interest you. Reflect on why certain animals stand out to you and try to identify traits and characteristics that resonate with you. Explore their movements, interactions with other animals, habits and cycles. 6. Connect Through Meditation During meditation, channel your inner guide to find your spirit animal. If a specific animal keeps coming to mind, don’t dismiss it or over think it. If it’s not what you imagined or hoped for, that animal still bears wisdom that deserves reflection. Still your thoughts and use your active imagination for an inward journey with your spirit animal. By opening your heart and focusing your third eye, you’ll be more receptive to the energy and wisdom of your spirit animal. 7. Pay Attention To Your Dreams Dreams are often the subconscious mind’s way of processing complex emotions, as well as manifestations of unconscious imagery and guidance. Animals in dreams may symbolise your most deep-rooted basic instincts and emotions that you find hard to control. Pay attention to the animals you see in your dreams. Think about the people or situations they may represent, and ask yourself how they make you feel. Our dreams are intimately connected to our waking lives, so consider doing some research into dream symbolism. Write down your dreams and as many details as you can remember. You may find a reoccurring animal present. Pay particular attention to the messages your dreams deliver and to the specific situations in which animals are present. 8. Your Journey Together Once you find your spirit animal, your journey together begins. Embrace the process of journeying with your spirit animal, allowing yourself to view your life from a deeply connected and spiritual state, revealing your true inner self. Study your spirit animal and its core traits and characteristics. Reflect on why this particular animal chose you and how your spirit animal connects to your own personal experiences. 9. Express Gratitude Your spirit animal is a powerful ally. Always thank your spirit animal for their guidance and support. They may help you navigate your life path; transform your awareness; and see your experiences and relationships in a new light. In turn, express your recognition and deepest thanks. Like any relationship, a spirit animal connection requires cultivation.
