My spirit animal is a wolf. A spirit animal is a shamanic native American belief, that everybody has an animal that guides and protects you. First let me tell you how I met my spirit animal. I went to bed, meditating on it. I envisioned a river in a beautiful, serene, luscious green forest. I waited on the shore, watching the river, awaiting the arrival of my spirit animal. If an animal crosses the river and comes up to you, you simply ask, are you my spirit animal. The animal will respond, usually with a head nod or a shake no. Many different animals came to the other shore of the river. Some came half way across, none made it to my side.
I slowly drifted to sleep during this process. As soon as I fell asleep, I was attacked in my dream by a demon. This is when a large beautiful timber wolf jumped out of nowhere in between me and the assailant. The demon ran off. The wolf turned around to face me. She looked at me like a mother would a child, with such loving and caring eyes. She was as tall as me. I asked her if she was my spirit animal, and she nodded her head yes. I remember talking with her for awhile, but when I awoke, I couldn’t remember anything we talked about.
In addition to this dream, I have always had a strong affinity for wolves. In addition to this magnificent creature being your friend, protector, and guide, we share similar traits with our spirit animals. In my case, the wolf symbolizes sharp intellect, deep connection with instincts, longing for freedom, weariness of people, strong family connection, protectiveness, and wisdom.
Thank you for allowing me to share my beautiful story about my wonderful animal spirit guide, the wolf. If you are interested in finding out what your spirit animal is, try the meditation I mentioned above, or research more about spirit animals. I leave you with one parting thought….OWWWWWW!
