They can be called spirit animals, power animals or animal guides. Whatever you call it, a spirit animal is a friend, influencer and mirror to your own character. Your spirit animal isn’t just the animal you like the best. It’s a creature that looks at life the same way you do. Learning what your spirit animal is can help you navigate the journey of life and provide you with comfort and strength when the path gets rough.
Spirit animals are archetypes, and some of the symbolism associated with a particular animal may seem strange. For instance, the lone wolf stereotype isn’t true of the wolf guide who runs with his pack. You could have a connection with the lion or the lamb, but whatever the guise your spirit animal takes, it will have strengths to lend you and advice to help you reach your full potential. Take our spirit animal quiz to see which animal matches your soul.
You may have just one spirit animal or many over the course of your life. Many people find there’s one animal that stays with them, a reflection of their path in life. Other animal guides appear when they need extra help. Whenever an animal starts to appear regularly, whether it’s on signs, television shows or in the wild, think about what gift it may be bringing you at this point in your life.
Spirit animals have made an appearance in most pagan and animist spiritual traditions throughout the world. Different cultures have sought out animal guides in different ways, whether through meditation, vision quests or consultation with the elders. Many of the names for these traditions have been lost through time. No matter what your background is, it’s likely that one of your ancestors in the distant, or not-so-distant, past had a spirit animal guiding their life.
