You may have heard people all too often joking about animals with certain extreme characteristics being their spirit animal. For example, someone who is talking about how much they love their bed may jest by saying “The sloth is my spirit animal”, it can make for a good chuckle amongst your pals but did you know that according to the ideology we actually do each have a spirit animal? In fact, in many cases we each have several that guide us through our lives and help us along the way. If you are wondering or have been trying to find out just what your guide actually is you are in luck, there are plenty of ways to discover this. So, with this in mind let us take a look at a few tips and pointers that can help you to uncover your spirit animal.
I Choose You
Perhaps the most important thing to remember when searching for your primal guide is that it is not yours to choose. A spirit animal will choose you, so it’s time to abandon the sloth that you were only half joking about. Spirit guides will come to you and they will do this in different days, some will visit you in your dreams or maybe even whilst you daydream, they can also come to you during meditation too. They usually approach whilst you are journeying outside of what we would consider as a conventional state of mind, so any altered state of consciousness can allow you a meeting, though that doesn’t mean you should in anyway risk your life or mind just to achieve this assembly. That being said, sometimes your spirit animal may approach you in the flesh. You will become aware of them quite easily as you will see them often within a short span of time and they will behave somewhat unusually in comparison to their none spirited counterparts.
On the Hunt
We’ve touched on some of the places you can find your guide but let’s take a look at how to go about searching through these avenues. There are plenty of different approaches so don’t be disheartened if one does not work for you, simply try another and with any look you will have coaxed your animal out before you know it. Finding a spirit animal in its physical form may seem like the most unlikely of ways but there are several things that you can look out for in order to achieve this spot. Head out into nature and observe everything about you, drink it all in and pay attention to the animals and their behaviour, you may spot one that stands out. Also be attentive to any animals that appear in your life in what you would say is a noticeable way, if it is acting strange it may just be a spirit animal trying to get your attention. Remember, it may instead appear to you in a symbolic form as opposed to a living being, you may see objects or images that represent an animal.
