Spirit guides are spirits that help people and in the Native American tradition, there are spirit guides that are animals. These guides can come to you whenever you want to see them or when you want to connect with them.
When you see an animal that is familiar to you, you might feel close to this animal and it could be your spirit guide. Your animal guide can help you to have peace and confidence in your life.
Do you know what your spirit animal is? If not, here are some ways you can figure out your spirit animal:
One of the best ways to connect to your spirit animal is through your dreams. When you see an animal in your dream then this could be your spirit animal.
Have you had connections with animals in the past such as when you grew up? Have you ever had a wild animal that crossed you and made you feel connected?
Write down the animals in your life that have influenced you. Was there anything that stood out to you? Were there any animals that taught you a lesson or helped you to be stronger or more personal?
Write down all of the animals you have come in contract and see if there was anything you could learn from it.
Identify Your Animal
Once you learn to identify who your spirit animal is, you can learn more about who you are. Your animal has traits that will help you to be stronger and will help you to learn lessons about your life. This will help you to be your better person.
If your animal is a crow, you can learn to hunt energy and to be stronger. You have to think of the qualities that you have and see what animal represents you. Maybe you see an animal in a picture, or a painting and you feel that it resonates with you. This could mean that you are drawn to that specific animal.
Each time your spirit animal touches you, you can write this down and see what unique qualities you and your guide shares.
