A DRIVEN, PASSIONATE FORCE
According to shamanic beliefs, if this spirit power animal appears in your life, it is here to teach you how to ride towards new directions and awaken your own freedom and power.
Seen as a highly motivated and intuitive land animal, the spirit horse is a true freedom-seeker. The spirit horse's high level of energy delivers physical strength and vitality, while psychological stamina allows it to face life head-on and overcome encumbering obstacles. From winged Pegasus to unicorns to the stallions of Apollo, the horse is a common character in mythology, often shown to possess psychic powers. It has given humans freedom of movement in a way no other animal has: shortening journeys, making hunting easier, and allowing for whole villages to relocate. For these reasons, Native American cultures view it as a symbol of service, trust, and the utmost power.
Further, the spirit horse energy is all about learning to use this power correctly, by opening up to others with compassion and love. Hone in on what deeply drives you and you will reach your goals faster than you ever thought possible. On the flip side, your drive for success and desire for independence can cause you to, at times, neglect responsibilities and certain beloved people - the horse connects with you as a reminder to stay balanced and control your ardent urges. Those who identify with this animal may find fulfillment as a high-powered executive, entrepreneur, or athlete.
