Spiritual seekers throughout the entire history of man have recorded their interaction with animal energies and medicine. These brave warriors strove to build strong relationships with animal archetypes as a way of broadening themselves, learning more about human nature by interacting closely with animals in their purest form.
Animals are messengers from the world we call “spirit.” They show up when it is time for us to remember our connection between ourselves and them, giving us gentle reminders that allow us power over these divine beings so they may use some energy through our body at any given moment.
Any living thing can potentially be a Spirit or Totem Animal because of the inherent symbolism in that creature. For example, let’s take an instance where you think of a bird... What about the color? The direction they are flying? Whether they tweet loudly to signify their territory as well as general communication needs…? All this is just scratching the surface on potential meanings within such creatures for us humans!
Spirit animals are the manifestation of our soul. They provide insights and guidance into a landscape that we often don’t know how to navigate alone, but they also have an energy about them that can be tapped for intuition at any time.
Tribal animism went one step further but took it to a whole other level by believing that animals were messages and symbols from Spirit. This led them to believe in animal totems and spirit guides which would help the hunters hunt if they saw Stag Spirits before an expedition.
In my research and personal experience, these animals play different roles in our lives here on Earth; they are not all lumped together into one category called Spirit Animals but instead can be divided up by whether you would call them your Totem Animal (an animal which shares common characteristics with yourself) or Power Animal (a specific kind of totem).
The brave, strong, and courageous are all traits that can be applied to an animal. But what is a totem? It’s not just for native tribes or those in indigenous cultures; it has meaning for anyone who chooses to identify with their spirit animals. This includes your familiar (i.e., pet) as well!
Sometimes, we are not aware of the animal spirit guides that have been around us all along. Once you become conscious about their presence in your life and how they affect you energetically, it’s time to apply what these animals teach.
For example, using an Eagle for wisdom will be pretty different from a Bear who teaches resilience through its hibernation cycles each year or even more so when one feels anxious from lack of sleep or stressed with work deadlines looming on the horizon.
The energy output can differ as well - such as being quiet like Golden Retrievers versus having strong personalities akin to Lions (or Tigers if Eastern). It’s also important to note that Animal Communication has particular frequencies too!
A bird in a dream may signify that it’s time for change through movement (moving house) and becoming more liberated (flying high). Spirit animals also deliver messages regarding persons, places, and situations in our lives (“do” “don’t marry,” “go,” “stay”).
Do you know about the Flamingo collection where you can’t help yourself to buy every item? It would be best if you had quite a connection with these animals.
It turns out your totem is an animal whose energy “speaks to your spirit.” Native American tradition tells us that as we grow and change spiritually, the meaning of our totems likewise grows in awareness—often revealing themselves gradually over time or through different sources (such as dreams).
Biomimetics is a form of biomimicry that uses nature as an inspiration to create new technologies and inventions.
There are many ways we can call in our power animals, but one way indigenous cultures teach children how to “become” the hawk or other animal when they need help with specific tasks such as hunting food for their family’s supper, more playful activities like playing games on the beach while building sandcastles together or preparing themselves before taking exams at school so they will have better clarity about what needs to be done next.
It is said that a Familiar can be anyone from an animal to some other entity, but the most common are cats. Unlikely any type of spirit guide before, your familiar will often assist you in metaphysical pursuits like casting circles and divining spells.
What animal spirit is calling to you? What does it mean? It’s a question that has fascinated us for centuries. Even today, the answer can be found in symbols and metaphors across cultures. Native American tribes commonly use totem animals or spirits as representations of their clans. At the same time, Westerners might look at how an animal appears on coins or coats-of-arms to speculate about its meaning; we also see them depicted in stories, paintings, and sculptures throughout history.
