I came across an article I really liked about spirit animals on shaman.com, so I will share it here.

“The spirit animals , as the name suggest are creature’s spirits inhabiting the two realms of existence . Our own and the realm of the spirits .  They are the reflection of the one’s true inner self . They are an embodiment of  what a person’s needs most at the moment . The spirit animals are part of almost every shamanic traditions worldwide .”

It is helpful to remember that different cultures might have slightly different interpretations of what certain spirit animals symbolize. But what is important is that getting in touch with these animals can help you better yourself, or help you enhance a part of yourself that is lacking. The reason why animals are helpful to us humans is because many of us have forgotten how to get in touch with our instincts. We over intellectualize our lives and our problems. And we forget that at a deep, primitive level, we might already know the solutions to the issues we face. This is why an animal as a pet, a friend, or a spirit you see in a vision or a dream can potentially guide you to the right path.


Here are a few examples of spirit animals. Text taken from original article.

Deer

The deer is a symbol of healing , kindness and unconditional love . He is kind and compassionate . Furthermore this spirit animal rises your intuition  . If you see a deer in your dream is a symbol of natural beauty and gentleness . It represents your ability to deal with problems , your determination and grace .
