Animal Guides and Totems

 

Have you noticed here on spaces how many of us love our animal pictures? None so more than I, who adores the wolf, Bear and Eagle, along with our more normal pets of Dogs and Cats..

I know that our animals have more of a sixth sense than we  do, My own pets, have always known when  to give me that extra healing love, and known also when danger is around..

It was said that in the last Tsunami in Indonesia that fateful Christmas time, that the elephants and animals took themselves off to higher ground before the wave struck and so were saved.

I know that I have a Bear totem, which protects me, I have seen him, all be it with my third eye, but I know he exists never the less.  This for some of you may be a hard to believe, but the concept of animal guide is not a new one.  Long before our ancestors arrived on the continent of America, the Native Americans believed that All life was sacred, and that animals played an important role in daily spiritual life. History shows that many cultures believed in animals and messengers or deities of the Gods, Including Ancient Egyptians, Africans, Aztecs and Mayans, and don’t forget the Mytholigical animals, such as Dragons, Unicorns, Pegasus, and the Minotaur.

But in modern life we push these ideas to one side saying that they are superstitions of myths.. But many of our ancestors looked to the animal kingdom and knew of the connectedness between the Earth and our Creator.

How do you know if you have an Animal Guide? Chances are you have several. Often, the easiest way to find out what creature is your spirit animal is to think about an animal that you have a particularly strong connection to. Many people have a favourite, maybe one they completely obsess over. Is your home decorated with dolphins, Wolves  etc? Does a friend’s normally shy cat instantly come to sit near you? These animals are probably connected to you on a spiritual level.

It may surprise you to know that if there is an animal you absolutely hate, or has you running from the room . . . that animal more than likely has a spiritual meaning or a message for you. If you absolutely can’t stand this creature, ask yourself what aspect of your life terrifies you, or what about yourself have you been avoiding? Often coming to terms with the message these animals bring will bring you some relief from those strong reactions.

Here are some ways to interpret what your guide may be trying to tell you. First, think about what that animal means to you. Write some words or phrases that come to mind about that animal. Now think about how those traits might relate to you. Are these things you could stand to work on, or do you feel that they are your strong points? You can enhance your knowledge of your spirit animal by studying its behavioural traits and social structure, along with its mythology and history.

There are no hard or fast rules to meditation.. Trust your intuition. When you’re working out the specific meaning of your animal and you feel that one trait or behaviour suits you more than another, go with it. Keep a journal, writing about the animal to get in better touch with them.

Enjoy the journey

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
