Think of a special encounter you’ve had with an animal, or perhaps a recurring dream. This closeness, this connection is more than coincidence – it’s said to be a sign. It’s the power of animal spirit guides - sometimes called “spiritual animals”. According to ancient cultures, mystics, sages, and shamans, these special creatures are embodied spirits that present themselves to us through the animal kingdom. They deliver signs and symbolic interpretation meant to bring clarity and comfort.
Medicine men and woman, and ancient cultures throughout history have honored, and looked to the animal spirit as a guide, pathfinder, and messenger sent to protect, enlighten, and show us the way. These special spirit creatures are considered to reflect back characteristics, qualities, and traits that we embody but don’t see. Tuning into your stillness and discovering your animal spirit guide is believed to teach us about our deepest selves through self discovery and the magic of nature.
