    My spirit animal

    Post  Seasprite on Thu Sep 07, 2017 10:41 pm

    A couple of years ago I decided I wanted to know what my spirit animal was. I had two magazines to help me, in one magazine there was a questionnaire to determine your spirit animal and in the other magazine a meditation to follow. 

    The questionnaire said my spirit animal was a blackbird I loved that idea. Then I did the meditation. I had to visualise myself in a place I felt at home, so I pictured a beach, I had to put on a protective cloak and call my spirit animal, the visualising was all going well and I fully expected a blackbird to turn up.

    Well along comes this little white puppy/lamb type of creature, it looked like nothing I'd ever seen before and it looked up at me adoringly. I was so surprised and overcome I opened my eyes and that was that. Very unexpected.

    I wonder if anyone knows if the same spirit animal stays with you or do they change? xxx

    And has anyone had a similar experience?

    Hi Seasprite that is lovely and thank you for sharing your experience with us  :astar:

    A few years ago I did a shamanic journey meditation to meet my Animal guide and out of the tree's came a Jaguar which was a lovely experience I had with it. Often when I lay giving myself Reiki I see a Eagle I can hear it's cry in the sky and I am often flying high up with it, so I think it is possible to have a few animal guides?

    You are welcome Seasprite  :hugsquish: If I am not mistaken I am sure I have read that you can have many animal guides during your life, and that you can call on a particular animal when needing their energy such as a Lion for strength and Courage.

    Love GA xxx

    I think the 2017 Diseny movie "Jungle Book" illustrates what a spirit animal (power animal) can be.

    Species of animalse create energy through their nature, as do plants, rocks and every other aspect of the changing universe. When I connect with nature, I connect with those energies. They both guide and heal. 

    Over the years I have come to feel a kindred with certain animals, trees or places because of the special part they have played in my life or the affinity their energy has with mine. Whereas other connections have played a more transitory role. But connection is open to all aspects of life and all species. So I feel that the notion of there being one aspect for a person is perhaps their personal attachment to a specific aspect, or something completely different. 

    I personally wouldnt use a magazine questionnaire for anything but a bit of fun. Connecting with nature is done through the spirit.

    Thunder Bow, I'd never thought of the Jungle Book animals as spirit guides, I have seen the film many times, it was my sons favourite.

    Blueanchor I spend a lot of time in nature and often feel its energies. I agree about magazines, but I think its interesting that I was expecting a blackbird and something else turned up, it must mean its not just my imagination  :rainbow: xxx

    Many years ago I did a similar guided meditation to see if I could find my power animal.    What turned up was a large dog with a coat of sleek black crow feathers.

    Never could figure out what that meant, but there it is.   :sleepy3:

    Look at how the Panther and Bear taught and protected the boy. Look at how the boy learned and grew because of them. That does fit the definition of a Power Animal. They were his guides and protectors.

    I have had a similar shamanic journey and also experienced a Jaguar but he was black and a monkey was riding him. I thought at first this wasn't right but I kept seeing the samething, a black Jaguar being ridden by a monkey. Was very interesting and fun experience.

    You must feel you have a Monkey on your back in real life.

    And has anyone had a similar experience?

    I have the same question, but I do not know exactly what it looks like.. What I can recall is just it is on water but not a fish.. Would you mind sharing your magazine so I can also determine mine?

    Hello Jose, I'm afraid my animal guide experience happened about six years ago so the magazine is long gone. Sorry about that I hope you manage to meet your animal guide eventually xxx
