How To Find Your Spirit Animal Guides

Art by Maria Jose Mallol

My wisdom regarding spirit animal guides comes from personal experience. I have received a crash course in the basics of spirit animal guides and wanted to share what I have discovered. Over the past several months, more than a dozen animal guides have come to guide me and impart wisdom. You can say, this is a pivotal time in my healing and spiritual growth process. I want to discuss not only how you can find your spirit animal guides, but also how you can decipher the wisdom they are trying to impart. Intuition is a key aspect, but there are other ways you can decipher and keep track of key "talking points" from your animal spirit guides. Keep your heart open and when you need help, if you seek, they will come to you. Remember, all things come when you are ready. Be patient, present, and grounded. Some of the tips below are inspired by my mentor and Reiki Master Bruce Winkle.

Spirit animal guides can come from both internal and external sources. Meaning: do not disregard nature. The wisdom you seek is not always within. That cardinal that always comes to your window has something to say. If it is significant to you, look up the meaning. Perhaps, they have a message for you. Look around you, and above all, use your intuition.

Next, Get a good book on spirit animal guides. I purchased the recommended book Animal Spirit Guides by Steven D. Farmer, PHD and found it to be very informative and concise. However, I go to the blog Shamanic Journey for more in-depth information. Please note: Do not take everything your spirit animal guide book has to say verbatim. Not everything will apply to you. You must use your intuition. Go with the sentence that stands out the most. Do you feel tingling down your back? That's the portions that apply to you.

You have a power animal. A power animal sounds sorta silly, but you do. You have an animal that is with you always. This is my intuitive feeling and belief. It is the animal in which you rely on and that you think about first when you need guidance.

You have more than one animal spirit guide and they will arise as you need their wisdom. I certainly found that out this week. Fox, Robin, Cardinal, Tiger, Lion, Elephant, Fox, Bear, Owl, Wolf, and whew! An entire menagerie for me this week. What do you do if the above happens? See the next tip below.

Buy a journal(A Bruce tip). However, I hate journaling. Writing in a journal is something I have not done since my teenage years, but it has proved to be incredibly helpful! Blogging is how I get my stories out and plus I get to share what is happening with all of you! The point is, you need to get it out and down somewhere. That way you have a point of reference. You will refer back to your journal to make a connection between two seemingly disconnected things.

How to find your animal spirit guides? I do believe they find you when you are ready. Keep your heart open. Trying using a crystal to connect with your animal spirit guides while in meditation. Check out my post about Phantom crystals, they are wonderful crystals for this purpose.

This last bit may seem like a shocker, but your animal spirit guide is not going to give you a definitive answer to your problems. They are supportive spirits and there to guide you. Guide only. You must come to your own conclusions, after all, this is your journey.

Enjoy the journey.
