The shaman’s way is to allow the spirit animal to come to you. Through dreams and meditation. This particular methodology is best practised late at night when the body is tired. Falling asleep after this visualization is recommended, animal spirits find us in our astral travels and in our dreams.
We all have the opportunity to connect and work with our animal spirit guides and are not always limited to just one. Alternatively, sometimes our spirit animal is a living one. Possibly a pet or a pet you’ve had in the past.
What Is The Purpose Of A Spirit Animal
Animal spirit guides may come and go in our lives depending on our spiritual progression and what drives our passions in life. Connecting with our animal spirit brings vast amounts of knowledge and understanding of ourselves and our perspective on the world ( universe ) in general. Animal spirits are a powerful source of protection psychically and provide safe travels in the astral world.
How To Find Your Spirit Animal
Lay down flat on your back, arms by your side, legs shoulder-width apart, breathe in deeply through the nose filling the lungs with as much air as possible and exhale through the mouth expelling as much air as possible. Do this slowly three times.
Clear your mind for a few minutes by visualizing yourself sitting on a beach watching the waves roll in, it is mid-afternoon and the ocean is gentle. Relax your thoughts and focus your attention on the beach.
In your mind’s eye begin to build a small fireplace and erect a hammock between two palm trees. During this brief visualization relax the body even further by feeling your weight sink into the mattress you’re lying on.
After a short period of enjoying the tropical paradise which you have created, begin to refocus on your breathing, and repeat step one. Shuffle your body into a sleeping position before beginning the visualization.
Take yourself back to the beach walking along the shore, it is late in the evening and the sun is saying goodbye behind the horizon. You come across the camp you have previously set up and begin to lite the fire settling in for the night.
Taking a comfortable position in your hammock your focus is now on the luminous sight of the moon over the ocean. As you stare deep into her ( moon ) all other thoughts and sights drift away.
You’re left with darkness in the foreground and overwhelming light coming in over the top of you. Feeling a presence in the darkness you are startled but not frightened, keeping your attention on the moon a state of inner peace begins to surround you.
Out of the shadows. a figure appears, looking directly at you. During this moment you are spoken to, spoken in the sound of spirit a telepathic experience. No matter the language telepathy translates. From this moment on we walk off the beach together as a partnership, as one.
