Finding your spirit animal can radically change your life in countless, positive ways. Working with your animal spirit guide’s ‘energy’ can help enhance your physical, emotional, and spiritual abilities.
When you find your spirit animal you’ll have a choice to make – either accept its messages and act on them or walk away. Should you accept your animal spirit guide’s messages and act on them you might find your whole life transforming.
Because finding your spirit animal and truly integrating its energy, lessons into your existence is a spiritual awakening. Relationships, careers, thought patterns, tastes (food, drink, clothing, music, and more) – anything which no longer serves your highest and best interest will fall away.
When you find your spirit animal, you begin to understand there are worlds beyond the material one in which we live. Your 6 senses can become sharper as you start using natural instincts to “think”.
This can seem a little overwhelming but if you weren’t ready for transmutation, if you weren’t ready to live a better life, you wouldn’t be searching for your spirit animal and you wouldn’t be reading this article.

First, and most importantly, your spirit animal is not separate from you. Its energy and spirit is now and has always been part of you – of your basic nature. After all, humans are animals.
So, in some ways, you are your own spirit animal.
Wait a minute. Spirit animals are entities that are supposed to mysteriously show up and deliver messages when we need them, right?
Oh, if that were only true. If only outside forces would show up throughout our lifetime and save the day! We could just sit back and enjoy the ride.
But, in the many years I’ve been researching spirit animal guides, energy, I’ve come to know it doesn’t work like that.
Though we have animal spirit guides who do appear in our hour of need, it’s our own soul who cries out to the animal kingdom for help. Animal spirits hear those pleas and rally around us to offer protection, hope, healing, and wisdom.
Technically speaking, our spirit animal chooses us. However, because we subconsciously ‘ask for help’ we are why they show up.
Science gives us evidence that DNA matches can be found between humans and many other animals – even plants. This means living things are infinitely intertwined.
The Native Americans call this relation ‘Wakan’ and ‘Wakan Tanka’.
To the Native Americans, everything has its own spirit (Wakan) but all share the same spiritual essence (Wakan Tanka). This is why Native Americans refer to animals as ‘peoples’.
Because of this intricate connection, when your soul sends out an S.O.S. all other living things hear the signal. The name for this is the Non-Local Universal Mind.
