~ The Birth Totem ~
This is one of the two types of animal spirit that remain with us from the cradle to the grave. Our birth totems tell us what a person is really like, this can be seen as we share the same traits with our birth totem. Our psychic awareness is also closely linked with our birth totem, and for those who are interested my birth totem is the Falcon.
~ Power Animal ~
Our Power Animal is the other animal spirit that stays with us from the cradle to the grave. Our power animal will compensate for our weaknesses and our short comings. These Power Animals also share their wisdom and their abilities with us, often giving us the knowledge to answer questions on subjects we know nothing about and also giving us the courage to complete our tasks when we want to give up. They also serve as an indicator of our possible growth and full potential they are able to provide us with everything we need to attain to reach our full potential, helping us to learn and grow.
~ Animal Helpers ~
Animal helpers are the type of animal spirit that comes and goes as the need arises, they share their wisdom with us and show us what we need know to remedy any situation in our lives at any time. They will stay with us until the situation is resolved then they will leave to help someone else. The sooner these animals go the better as it means the problem has been resolved and we can move on. It is important that we be aware of these helpers and that we listen and pay attention so that we can use their wisdom when it is needed.
~ Animal Messengers ~
This animal is exactly what it says, these animal spirits are the dispatch riders of the spirit realms and they deliver messages from the spirit world. They often appear in our dreams, but can appear in meditations or along our chosen pathway as we journey. Their visits are always brief, they depart as quickly as they arrive. We may only ever get to see this particular animal spirit once so it is important that we listen, carefully, to what they have to say or look ,carefully, at what they have to show us, we may not get another chance to fully understand what was given, if we miss something.
~ Medicine Animals ~
This type of animal is similar to the helpers, except this animal comes loaded with medicine and this is to aid in healing. These animals only come when you call them and will stay until you tell them to go. These medicine animals also have a great wisdom to share with you and they will guide you whilst you do your healing work, in addition to all this they also provide extra protection, should you need it, whilst you work. Please remember when you use these animals to honour them with your thanks when you send them away.
