First, and most importantly, your spirit animal is not separate from you. Its energy and spirit is now and has always been part of you – of your basic nature. After all, humans are animals.
So, in some ways, you are your own spirit animal.
Wait a minute. Spirit animals are entities that are supposed to mysteriously show up and deliver messages when we need them, right?
Oh, if that were only true. If only outside forces would show up throughout our lifetime and save the day! We could just sit back and enjoy the ride.
But, in the many years I’ve been researching spirit animal guides, energy, and medicine, I’ve come to know it doesn’t work like that.
Though we have animal spirit guides who do appear in our hour of need, it’s our own soul who cries out to the animal kingdom for help. Animal spirits hear those pleas and rally around us to offer protection, hope, healing, and wisdom.
Technically speaking, our spirit animal chooses us. However, because we subconsciously ‘ask for help’ we are why they show up.
