1. Your Dreams
Our dreams are connected to our waking lives, so when you see an animal in yours, write it down the next morning. Are there any specific animals that come up again and again? They could be your spirit guide.
2. Keep a Journal
If you’re in search of your spirit animal, all you may need to do is listen to your intuition. Sit down and do a meditation to get centered, then think of one animal that has a special significance to you. What lessons would your guardian spirit teach you? How is your spirit animal guiding you towards inner strength? Complete this meditation for as many different animals as you’d like, then come back to your journal and see which animals’ lessons resonated with you most.
3. Past Connections
Remember your past connections to particular animals. Your spirit guide may have been your favorite animal when you were a child, a pet, or an animal you felt close to when you were younger.
Different Spirit Animals
Once you’ve recognized your spirit animal, you can begin to listen to it and learn about yourself. Spirit guides help us exude the traits and strengths that we should be embracing more of at that specific point in our lives. That’s why your spirit animal may change over the years. Your guide changes as you benefit from different qualities these animals emanate at different points in your life.
