Animal Spirit Guides

Article by Rinku Patel, Reiki Rays

We all know we have spirit guides to assist us, they are always around us. Same way, we have animal spirit guides. Animals have great spiritual connections. Animal spirit guides are our protectors, guides, and companions. They follow instructions to guide and protect human from Creator, God and Angels. Pay attention to the animals that appear repeatedly as they appear to give you some message. Each animal has their own unique power. There is no comparison such as this animal has more power than the other one.

Do you see a certain animal repeatedly in your daily life?

It could be an actual animal, picture, sticker or you may notice it on TV. Pay attention to your surroundings. Notice if any animal appears in front of you repeatedly. They appear repeatedly to grab your attention to pass on the message to you. It could be an animal, bird, insect, mammal or even a reptile. Try to interpret what the animal spirit guide is trying to convey by linking that animal spirit guide’s characteristics with your emotions and situations (what is currently going on in your life).

You can have more than one animal spirit guide. Once you know who they are, try to build a relation with your animal spirit guide. Meditate on them and talk to them. If they are showing themselves to you, it means there is a reason. Learn how to understand their guidance. Connect to them through Reiki energies. Call upon them anytime or connect with HSZSN to call upon them. You may use Reiki energy before sleep and ask to connect to your animal spirit guide in your dream.

There are four types of animal spirit guides:

  • Messenger animal spirit guides – They appear to warn about specific situation. They stay with you till the warning is over.
  • Journey animal spirit guides – They appear when you have life changing decisions to make or when you travel. They will stay by your side till your journey is over, however long it takes.
  • Life animal spirit guides – They stay with you throughout your life. They guide you, protect you and show your inner strength.
  • Shadow animal spirit guide – These are the ones that may instill fear in you in order to test your strength. They help you fight your inner fears and stays with you till your fear is dissolved.Animal Spirit Guides

Below are two methods to connect with your animal spirit guides. Try whichever resonates with you.

Method #1

  • Invoke your spirit guides and angels. Ask them to help you connect to your animal spirit guide.
  • Invoke Reiki symbols and activate the flow of Reiki. Place your palms on Heart Chakra or Solar Plexus Chakra. Meditate for few minutes.
  • Draw CKR and state your intention to meet your animal spirit guide. Draw SHK with the intention to make communication easier with your animal spirit guide. Draw HSZSN to connect to angelic realm and create a bridge that takes you to magical journey to meet your animal spirit guide.
  • Visualize a beautiful waterfall, colorful flowers, trees, fairies or unicorns (or whatever your imagination shows you). Feel the soft breeze, smell the fragrance of enchanted realms. Take notice of every small things.
  • Now ask your animal spirit guide to show its presence to you. Your animal spirit guide could be anything- a butterfly, a bird, any wild animal, pet animal or even reptiles, insects or mammals. It could be something really unexpected.
  • Once your animal spirit guide appears, ask them to be your companion and friend. Tell them you want to talk to them, play with them and pet them.
  • Ask how they can help you. Show gratitude to them for blessing you with their presence.
  • Thank your angels and guides for being with you.

It is ok if you cannot ‘see’ when you try to visualize. Not everyone can ‘see’. Given time and more practice, you surely can start to visualize.

Another method doesn’t need much visualization. I succeeded while trying this method. I saw my own pet (of course ☺), a wolf and a dove. Though since last 2 days, I am seeing black ants a lot. It is trying to tell me my dreams will come true over the period of time. It is advising me to show patience.

Method #2

  • Invoke your spirit guides and angels. Ask them to help you connect to your animal spirit guide in your dreams.
  • Invoke Reiki symbols with the intention to connect to your animal spirit guide in your dream, make communication easier and remember the dream when you wake up. Program the Reiki to flow till you wake up.
  •  You may see any form of your animal spirit guide. It could be a picture, animated animal or actual animal. Again, it could be an animal, bird, insect, reptile or mammal.
  • Do not panic if the animal is not the one you expected. You love dogs but your animal spirit guide could be a snake or a lion. Anything is possible. The animal spirit guides are here to protect and guide you.
  • Once they appear, pay attention to everything, their expressions, the surroundings, colors or whatever is symbolic. Talk to them and ask them if they have any message for you. Ask your angels to help you interpret.
  • Thank your angels and guides for being there with you.

You may come across the animal spirit guides other than the ones who showed their presence to you. You can call upon your animal spirit guides or any other animal guides whenever you need guidance. Like Reiki, you do not choose your animal spirit guide, they choose you. They make an appearance when the time is right.

To establish a better rapport with your animal spirit guide, ask yourself few questions:

  • If you actually meet your animal spirit guide, how would you feel? What would be your reaction?
  • Try to remember what was it doing, how was it acting when I make an appearance.
  • What was your first reaction when your animal spirit guide appeared? What did you feel? You felt happy, excited, scared, confused..
  • Is there any connection between your life events/situations and your animal spirit guide?
  • Check out characteristics of your animal spirit guide and see if you find any connection.

Find characteristics of your animal spirit guide or call upon any according to your situation and animal guide’s characteristics. Invoke Reiki symbols to connect and for better communication.

    That’s a very interesting post. But how do I know in which one of the 4 types this spirtual guide represents? I always have hawks around and love them. I am very impressed by them.

      Pls google animal spirits…u will find a whole lot of fascinating stuff there!!!!! Hawk is one of my animal spirits too. It kinda tells u to be observant and cautious. When u see hawks or pics of thm, it tells us to pay attention to subtle msgs around us. Ppl with this bird as their animal spirit, have the tendency to over analyse things. This bird reminds us to keep this analytic self under control. This is a bird of Intuition, wisdom, courage and truth. I have always thought them to be Life Animals. What abt u?? 🙂

        After what you wrote the hawk might be both for me. I am in a situation at the moment where I have the tendency to read a lot between the lines because that certain matter means a lot to me. But also the matter of over analysing things would fit perfect as part of my personality. Therefore the hawk might be my guide for both. At the moment thos birds come a lot closer which might mean that I need it even more at this current situation. That was a great insight, thank you. You might have given me right the information I needed: give up control, let things happen, let life happen, and life will happen 😉 Thank you!!! You gave me some magic words.
