Animal Spirit Guides
Animal Spirit Guides Psychic Sylvia Browne, World-renowned Psychic Sylvia Browne pictures There are animal spirit guides in almost every indigenous culture from the Nordic to the Celtic to the North American Indian civilizations. Animal spirit guides are also channeled in cultures in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and the South Americas.

The idea is that these animal spirit guides can help guide us on vision quests and help heal us and give us guidance. The energies that they offer are primal, basic, and educate us about our own drives and our purpose in life.

In many cultures, it is the animal that threatens you or frightens you that becomes your spirit guide. In some cases, it is the animal that bites you or that you kill and wear somewhere on your body that qualifies as a guide.

The modern individual does not have to be so primal about choosing a spirit guide. It may simply be about seeing the animal in a zoo or on television or being struck by the way a bird, butterfly, or cat crosses our path. 

There are thousands of spirit guides that you can channel for guidance, protection, and spiritual solace. Here are an example of just a few of them and what they can mean.

The Bee – A symbol of prosperity, duty, and feminine power.

The Cat – A universal symbol of healing, as in “the cat has nine lives,” and in some cultures connections to the other world or alien worlds.

The Coyote – A North American Indian symbol for channeling our masculine, wild hunter side.

The Crane – An Asian symbol of fidelity, longevity, and connections as well as guidance from dead ancestors.

The Eagle – In many cultures, this majestic bird helps us to understand the cycles of time and honor the dead.

The Elephant – In Africa, this is a creature that symbolizes family, memory, love and honoring ancestors.

The Cougar – A North American Indian spirit guide about using power wisely.

The Hummingbird – They teach us how to fight, as they are very violent little birds. They also symbolize detachment from emotions and artistic excellence.

The Jaguar – A Mayan symbol for protection, survival, good health, and being grounded to the earth.

The Otter – A North American Indian spirit guide for channeling feminine wisdom, peace and happiness.

The Rabbit – A spirit guide that relates to Celtic fertility goddesses and helps us stay in touch with feminine energies.

The Shark – An animal that helps guide us through situations where we are required to be ruthless because our survival is at stake.

The Snake – A spirit guide that teaches us about psychological transformation and helps us deal with issues of sexuality.

The Spider – In Greek mythology, it symbolizes the Goddess Athena and how she weaves her stories. The spider is channeled as spirit guide for the healing of psychological problems.

The Swan – A universal symbol for the evolution and awakening of the true self.

It is also common to have more than one spirit guide during one’s lifetime and a new guide may appeal to us depending on the circumstances.

I absolutely LOVE animals and have reverence for all life. I realize their vital importance on Earth and am humble in recognizing that they have a right to be here just as we do. I know that what affects one, affects all. A very survival is connected to the conditions of our planet and animals. I feel animals are often more God-like then we are. They follow the natural order of things and I would not nearly be as blessed and joyful without the many pets I've had through my lifetime. They truly are unconditional. I believe my totem is a bird. They are beautiful spiritual animals and have frequented my dreams. "Live in accordance with the nature of things. In dwelling be close to the land."

I don't think I have an animal spirit guide because i hate animals & even more hate to have them as pets. Can an animal you HATE the most become your animal spirit guide?? because I HATE HATE HATE cats. And I just cannot think of having a cat as an animal spirit guide.

I have to say that; believe that we all have a animal spirit guide, because at my grandma's funeral, we all saw a eagle that swept around her grave and flew up to the sky, Sylvia was that a sign that my grandma was in peace? I think that; I have a bird also, which is my cocketiel, also I noticed that, I like birds that they are attracted to me, so I wander, could I also have an eagle or bird that will be my spirit guide? Thanks; keep up the great work.

Frances, this is my 1st time to make any comments, but I felt that I needed to say GOD bless you. I too recued a little pom that had been abused. She was not abused has badly as your pom was thank goodness. It is so hard for me to think of any animal being hurt in any way. I wish I could have as many animals has you do, I would love it. Thank You and God Bless Tammy

My husband and I are drawn to the Wolf. I am drawn to their eyes that seem to see into your soul and the sounds of their cries almost puts me into a trance. I also love all animals and share our home with 6 dogs and 7 cats. All the cats are rescues and each one seem to pick us. I recently rescued a little 4 lb. 11 oz. Pomeranian female of unknown age that had been severely abused. She had burns from shoulders down to tip of tail and was missing most of her front teeth. I knew she would need lots of love and patience to get over her fears. I have said lots of prayers for her and 6 months later, she has a coat so thick the groomer has to thin it. You can't tell she was ever burned. Her teeth didn't grow back but praise God for the return of her spirit and trust. The animals that need you will find you.

Hi Sylvia, my name is Felecia.. I think I already found my Animal Spirit Guide... Everytime I go on a walk, day or night I will see a cat.. The cat will actually stop, sit down and stare at me. I think it is awesome, especially cuz the "cat" is my favorite animal.
