What is your spirit animal?



The concept of spirit animals comes from the Native American culture. It basically says that everyone has his/her own spiritual guides. A spirit animal is nothing but the embodied form of that spiritual guide. Since animals are the closest friends of humans it is natural to see your spiritual guide in the form of an animal. People believe in spirit animals for the same reason they believe in God. It gives them hope that if they follow their spiritual guide it will help them to avoid misfortunes in their life.

Many of us live our lives without connecting with our subconscious mind. If you could connect to your subconscious mind then you could find your spirit animal.

There are many ways to find your spirit animal. Let us discuss a few of them.

1. You could find them in your dreams.

Since dreams come from our subconscious mind you might see an animal in your dream. If you see such an animal then write it down somewhere when you wake up. Do that multiple times and if you see the same animal coming in your mind then it might be your spirit animal. Spirit animals are for your good and they will never harm you.

2. Journal about the animals that you feel drawn to.

It is one of the most effective but underrated techniques in my opinion to find your spirit animal. You could sit down for ten minutes and imagine an animal and see what are the qualities of that animal that you like and write it in a journal. Repeat it multiple times. After a few days come back to see which animal resonates most with your life. If you could find your spirit animal then you are really lucky in my opinion.

I hope that you will find your spirit animal. There are many other techniques to find spirit animal but those two are the most effective ones. You could also take our quiz to find your spirit animal. Share it with your friends and family if you feel it was correct. I hope to see you in my next article.

“It also ushered me back to the forest, back to the life energy that connects us all as one divine consciousness and urges me to never lose sight of it and to always protect it in a world where people are forgetting and shunning the natural for the digital. In the forest, I sense the trees and the leaves and let them grow all around me and on me. Suddenly, I feel as if the trees themselves are my spirit animals and they surround me with a sense of healing energy and I feel very maternal and moved to protect the earth itself and all the people in it, especially the ones I’m close too.”

“When your body is clear there is control. When your body is clear you can choose whom to let in. There is love everywhere.
Please cradle my rabbit heart. Please navigate yourself around me well. I know too much. I can recognize darkness because he is my brother, my maker. I can drink lightness because it is the only way to survive. I can shut off my heart but that leads to evil, so I express her and revel in the nuance of blood currents, and the sacred demons. I fear and quake with my eyes darting fight or flight love or die. The lightning comes from below this time and rips out of my throat for the world to see. They all see my rabbit and I have trained her to hunt. In her perfect glory she is shy and extroverted, chaste and perverted, my sweet near-death more alive than ever. Take her. Take me while I am ripe and open, rub berries on my lips and bear fat in my hair. Tattoo me with a needle and impale me with your warmth. Heal me, fuck me, and work my heart till she beats strong and unafraid. Haunches bared, teeth sharpened, wide-eyed and aware. Hurry. I want to feel safe.”
