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.

Ive always loved anything with leopard print on it. Anything with leopard print on it it seems i can never pass up i have to get it. To me theres always been something about leopards that intrigue me so much i dont know what it is, its gotten to the point where people are saying to me: "Why do you like that leopard print stuff so much?" And im all like "I dont know, I just like leopards" So i think i have come to the conclusion that my totem animal is a leopard.

How can one tell what their animal spirit guides are? I know I feel drawn more towards cats, especially long hair domestic cats, black or dark grey, tigers, black panthers, cheetahs...also have an affinity for wolves, foxes, and my birth sign animal, the Bull
