What!? A slow lumbering elephant, oh no, I am more of an agile gazelle. A white dove, don’t think so, I am fierce like an eagle or a hawk. Really; a slimy green frog, now your just making fun of me. I think of myself as a charming butterfly not a warty frog. That was the dialog in my immature mind, when I started discovering my Spirit animals.
I’ve alway been curious about my animal instincts and had an inkling that specific animals spirits guided my actions. I began seeking out ways to reveal them. Through deep Shamanic journey meditations and body printing I asked them to reveal themselves. When they did my ego got in the way, my first reaction was not welcoming. Luckily I had some wise teachers to help me understand and accept the powerful attributes of these spirited creatures as my guides.
Finding my totem animal spirit guides, has given me a better understanding of who I truly am. My spirit animals have been present in my being since birth. This discovery explains my life choices, compulsions and rejections. It has taught me that I am not in control of everything. Their powerful attributes has propelled my actions. When I recognized and understood their innate instincts it made perfect sense in light of my true spirit.
The characteristics of the Elephant, Dove and Frog are intrinsic to my true primal spirit. I am a leader (elephant) who separates the veils between the physical and spiritual world (dove). I am fertile with creative new ideas and fresh perspectives, (frog).
Who are you?
