A POWER ANIMAL GUIDE
A Power Animal is a compassionate energy that comes to support and walk with you in your life.
In the shamanic view, everything is ALIVE, and you can communicate with everything. People, animals, plants, but also minerals, rocks, or elements like water or fire, spirits of place … EVERYTHING!
In the case of Spirit or Power Animals, the positive and helpful energies come in the form of … animals.
WHAT DO POWER ANIMALS DO?
Spirit animals bring you their medicine! In general, they offer you strength and power to live the life you want. And each individual Power Animal also offers you his own message: Snake brings you Snake wisdom, Tiger brings you Tiger wisdom, Dolphin that of the dolphins, Wolf that of the wolf …
For the shaman or shamanic practitioner, Spirit Animals are essential and powerful helpers for shamanic work.
WHO HAS SPIRIT ANIMALS?
Everyone has one or more Power Animals, not only shamans! All you have to do is … meet them!
A Power Animal may stay with you all your life. Other Spirit Animals walk with you for a certain time, maybe to help you through difficulties or changes. And then they may leave and are replaced by other Power Animals.
Meeting your very own Power Animals is like opening a beautiful door to life. The more you cultivate your relationship with your totem animals, the deeper, more beautiful and more powerful it becomes.
WHAT IS MY POWER ANIMAL?
To meet your Spirit Animal you may ask a shaman or a shamanic practitioner. He / she will do a shamanic journey for you, called Power Animal Retrieval. This ceremony is the beginning of a beautiful love story, and I love to do it for my clients – get in touch if you are interested!
You can also find your Power Animal yourself. Journey into the shamanic worlds if you know how to journey. Or simply be open to the Universe’s messages. Listen to your dreams, inquire your meditations, observe the “coincidences” of your life: Power Animals have many ways -sometimes very funny ways, to demand your attention!
