One of the most popular readings that I have is the Spirit Animal reading. Everyone has Spirit Guides that work with them and I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t have Spirit Animals as well. I usually find that each person has several. It may be a furbaby on the other side, a spirit animal that’s been with us since birth, or one that is working with us to help us with something specific on our path.
Every spirit animal that is working with you brings you energy. The Wolf helps us with loyalty, trust and feeling safe and secure. The Hawk helps to bring us wisdom and the ability to see the big picture as well as the tiny details. The Fox helps us to see different options for every situation and to think outside of the box. There are so many amazing spirit animals out there.
When you know who your Spirit Animal is you can work with them to draw their energy to you. Well what does that mean? Let’s take for instance the wolf. The White Wolf is one of my main spirit animals. When I feel like I’m in a situation where I would like to feel more secure I visualize the white wolf by my side. That action of visualizing the white wolf by my side summons the energy of that guide and allows me to tap into the energy of that spirit animal. Easy right? That is the simplest way to draw their energy to you.
Some spirit animals are easier to spend time with. For instance you may find that if you have a dog, cat or another animal that is accessible, spending time with that animal will also increase the energy that they bring you. This isn’t always possible. It would be pretty hard to spend time with a wolf. Although I did find the most amazing wolf sanctuary here in Massachusetts thanks to a fellow Daily Magick member. It was the most incredible experience to spend a couple of hours a stone’s throw from several wolves. In the case that you can’t spend time with them you may want to hang pictures of them or keep pictures of them on you. Basically anything that you can think of to help you connect with that spirit animal.
The final thing you want to do is watch for them on your path as they will often bring you messages. Sometimes you will get a spirit animal that is really good at this. I also work with the red-tailed hawk and I will see her often on my path. She often shows up at times that I need reassurance with decisions. It’s pretty amazing. However they don’t have to come to you in person. Watch for them in pictures, magazines, on signs, you never know how they will find their way to you. When you find them make sure that you pay attention to what’s currently going on in your life and your immediate surroundings as you will find that this helps you to understand the message that they are trying to bring you.
I hope this helps!
