What is a spirit/totem animal? Here’s the definition
Animals carry meaningful messages and lessons to those who know how to listen and want to decode them. One function of your spiritual animal is to guide you and to draw your attention to what needs to be recognized or addressed, as well as showing you skills you can use or develop further. Everyone has a special creature that protects us and guides us through the different stages of our lives.
They are very present in the Amerindian culture and are known as venerated and mythical animal. In this culture, nature, animals and humans are linked together and each of us has a protective spirit animal that advises and accompanies us. It was considered as the protective spirit of the tribe. It is a kind of mascot, a protective spirit of a community or an individual.
Your spirit animal offers you its characteristics, its strengths, but also its weaknesses. When this enigmatic figure appears in your life, it is because it has a message to give you, a bit like guardian angels. Yet, it’s up to you to listen to what it has to say…
The representation of the totem pole can also be physical, it was often a wooden post carved in honor of the totem pole.
3 Ways to identify your spirit animal if you don’t want to use your sun sign
1. Analyze your dreams; which animal comes back frequently?
When we dream, we are more receptive to energy and the world of totems. Thus, our mind is more willing to see them appear. Our emotions may be represented by animals that act as guides to the world of totems, or that seem to be symbols of uncontrollable or unrecognized feelings by the dreamer.
2. Whilst meditating; which creature appears to you?
As when we dream, it is very regularly when we step out of our usual state of mind that our spirit animal appears. A meditation session, for example, is a good way to see it appear.
3. Let them come to you: Keep an open mind
You can form a bond with several animals at different times in your life. Among the different ways to discover it, keep in mind that it is them who choose you and not the other way around.
You can limit yourself to the symbolic aspect of these guiding animals, or you can deepen the bond over time by looking out for its characteristics and observing it if it manifests itself in a physical form.
Do you choose your spirit animal?
Within the Native American culture, animals had a very important role. They were not only beings with which they cohabited, but also guides and protectors for humans. In a way, they were considered superior beings. They were what we call totem animals, of power or spirituality. It is therefore said that you can’t choose your spirit animal, because it chooses you. By studying these creatures, the Amerindians realized two things: that people who were born on certain dates had characteristics that were similar to animals and that every 13 moons a seasonal cycle began. Based on these two premises, they created a lunar calendar using the shell of a turtle that had 13 circles. They called it “the medicine wheel”, and in it, they represented and united the elements, the points of the compass, the seasons, and an identifying color. Then each circle was linked to an animal, and thus the Native American horoscope was born.
