What is a power animal and how do you know if you have one?

Power animals, spirit messengers or animal totems as they can also be known are animal messengers and spirt guides that help us and guide us on our path. They can be physical in our everyday 3D reality or they can be in spirit or even mythical spiritual creatures. You can have a power animal that has been with you since birth and you can have power animals that ride with you for a period of time while you are transitioning through something in your life. You can also have daily animal messengers for an event or situation you are currently dealing with.

How do you know if you have a power animal? Everyone on the planet has animal messengers sending them signs and signals if they are open to receiving them. Often power animals show up in your daily life through synchronicity, dreams and sightings.

Let me give you an example, on a walk through the national park near my house I saw a mama koala and a baby koala on her back.

I can’t tell you the last time I saw a koala in the wild and I’ve never seen one in the wild carrying its baby, however this day I was blessed with seeing both.

Koala Bears are marsupials that embody a natural maternal nature. Her children stay close with her. The pouch of Koala mom represents life-giving energy. This spirit animal is born near Earth, and shall, like all of us, return there at the end of days. Koala’s carry a genetic memory of primeval ancestors and mysteries. To this day Koala climbs toward the heavens watching and waiting for the sacred Ancients’ return.

Koala is a very “chill” creature. There is nothing in this Spirit that remotely speaks of stress. Mind you the euphoria of Eucalyptus leaves and a slow metabolism doesn’t hurt! In some respects, this lifestyle makes Koala Bear a shaman who uses nature’s gifts to improve their daily existence.

At the time I saw this Koala I was 6 months pregnant and I had just launched my website,  beginning my journey of stepping into my gifts as Shamanic Midwife. The synchronicity of seeing mama and baby koala in the wild was a glaringly obvious sign post, a high five from the universe that I was on the right path.

Some could say ah thats just a co-incidence or your just reading to much into it however I could give you countless examples of situations just like this one that happen in my life on a daily occurrence.

Once you begin to notice the animals speaking to you I promise you will wonder how you never noticed them before. You may even think it must not have been happening before or I would have noticed.

So how do you begin to notice your power animals are speaking to you.

  • Firstly you have to believe that it’s possible
  • Open your heart and your mind to listening
  • Become aware of synchronicity playing out in your life
  • It doesn’t have to be a sign to anyone else, if you think it’s a sign, it’s a sign
  • Trust your intuition
  • Take notice of your dreams
  • Take notice of unusual animal behaviors or interactions you may have with them
  • If you see an animal in the wild and you are drawn to it, it likely has a message for you
  • Take notice if you see an animal in a place it doesn’t normally inhabit, it’s likely there for you
  • Is an animal spending an unusual amount of time around you
  • Is it looking at you or interacting with you out of character
  • Do you keep seeing repeating patterns with animal interactions
  • Do you see the same animal represented in different ways in different places like in pictures, statues, paintings, peoples clothing, songs you hear on the radio

Can you answer now what animals are currently speaking to you, reminding you that you are in the right track, or guiding you back to your path.
