Animals send us messages of wisdom and healing if we are intuitive and open to receiving them. Entrenched in both the Celtic and Aboriginal spiritual traditions is the belief that animals have been gifted with lessons to pass on to mankind when needed.
Native American peoples refer to it as animal medicine. The term “medicine” does not suggest modern medical science or drug treatment, but instead refers to achieving balance and harmony within ourselves and with nature. Mother nature is a powerful ally and teacher. There are several ways to discover your animal guides. One way is to have an animal card reading, which is similar to a Tarot reading. Through this process you will discover that we each have nine animals that walk with us in our lifetime. Seven of them stay with us forever and walk by our side, while two may change as our life journey progresses. Animal medicine readings can take you on a deep and enlightening spiritual journey. Animal medicine is powerful.
Lots of people talk to animals,” said Pooh…”Not very many listen, though,” he said ~ Benjamin Hoff
You can also connect with your animal guides in other ways. Do you feel a special connection with a particular animal? Is there one that you see daily, for example a deer or rabbit that continually crosses your path? Do you have recurring dreams about whales or dolphins? If any of these questions resonate with you, then you have already connected with your power animals.
During a reading I had many years ago, I discovered one of my guides was the Otter. I was so excited to hear this, as I had always been fascinated and admired these playful creatures. The otter represents the medicine of woman, and they are great mothers and caregivers. The Otter showed up at a time in my life when I needed to take care of myself more, and have more fun. The message from the Otter came through in my reading and I took otter’s message seriously by making some positive changes in my life. It changed my life for the better.
Once connected, you may call upon the power of your spirit animal at anytime. Take a moment and intuitively visualize the animal that is powerful for you. You can merge your mind and soul with that of animal medicine to make a powerful impact on your life.

Another animal that calls to me is the Bear. Bear holds the power of introspection. Bears hibernate and enter a lengthy period of peace and stillness, and finds answers and wisdom during this quiet time. Bear teaches that we need to go into stillness to uncover the answers we seek. The Bear is reborn in the spring and with its rebirth reminds you that anything is possible.
Another one of my animal guides is the Blue Heron, which was a surprise to me. I had lived in areas within Canada that did not have Heron’s and I did not feel any connection at the time. Today, however, I see the great Blue Heron quite often. The Blue Heron speaks to us about self-reflection, and getting to know yourself and facing challenges. The Heron encourages being true to yourself and living up to your potential.
Take some time, soon, and discover who your animal spirit guides and totems are. Allow them to show you the life you were meant to live.
