Well hey there. In an earlier blog I promised that I would talk about how to find your spirit animal - well, that day has come. You may have one spirit animal (like myself), or you may have a bunch of different ones, all looking over a different part of your life. Either way, let's take a look at some of the ways to identify your spirit animal (hint hint - it doesn't involve a Facebook quiz).
1) DreamsDreams allow our subconscious mind to communicate with our conscious mind. It's no surprise that many people end up meeting their spirit animal in their dreams - so if you've ever dreamt of a profound encounter with an animal you couldn't help but feel extremely close to, it's a good sign that it was your spirit animal (unless it was a tiger right after watching Life of Pi on Netflix... it's great, you should check it out).
Often times, we go through our entire life feeling suspiciously "connected" to a certain animal. My sister's was the turtle (she got an awesome tattoo of a turtle to celebrate it). Most of the time, this connection is actually a very real relationship that you are feeling towards your real-life spirit animal.
If all else fails, you can always give meditation a try when seeking out your spirit animal. Just focus on your intent & what you want out of it - try asking your higher self to reveal whatever is needed to you at that moment. If you are ready, you may be surprised to see your spirit animal appear right in front of you.
There are many different "ways" to identify your spirit animal, and most of the time, the animal that you think is your spirit animal really is your spirit animal. Don't be discouraged if you do not yet know your spirit animal - it will be revealed to you in time, and when that time comes, you will be ready.
