    What is my spirit animal?

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hi, Derek;

      There are many ways to determine what your Spirit Animal is at this time in your life. Something that could really help is if you will read my in-depth tutorial How to Find Your Spirit Animal. Try some of the exercises described there and let me know how it goes!

      Stay wild,

    • Angel says:

      What is my spirit animal? My birthday is in October and I love being free.

    • Sam? says:

      I’ve been taking alot of quizzes and they all say my spirit animal is a wolf. How fo i find out what my power animal and totum animal are?

      • Sam? says:

        And is it weird that i have an emotional bond with every animal i meet? Ok for example my friend has a dog who will atack someone if you let him and he let me pet him and didnt even try to bite me.

        • Bernadette King says:

          Hi, Sam;

          It is not weird at all! It’s wonderful that you bond with all animals! What a kind heart you must have. I sure hope you decide to do something with animals (Veterinarian, helping at animal shelters, etc.) one day.

          Hope that helps.

        • Cierra says:

          Me too!!!! I didn’t think on it to much until an encounter with a wild rabbit in the woods. Animals bring out who I truly am. I’m glad I’m not the only one!

      • Bernadette King says:

        Hi, Sam;

        A Power Animal isn’t something we find – it’s an energy and wisdom that we invoke or call forth. So, let’s say for instance a person is afraid to learn to swim. By invoking Dolphin energy – and taking swimming classes, they can easily overcome their fear of water. Read about halfway down the Spirit Animal Meanings page and see the difference between Spirit, Totem, and Power Animals.

        Hope that helps.

      I was born in December,like quiet n nature, particularly being near the coast,am quite stubbor.

    • Mignion says:

      Hi Bernadet I saw one of your shows on YouTube I must say it was a bit fascinating to hear all the things that you were saying about the snake I am a Christian but I have been visited in a weird way and my life is turned upside down in a way that I do not understand I have had something jump on me and it has manifest itself to turn my face into looking like a snake also it moves on my body like a snake I need help it has control of my life for the past five years my grandmother recently died 2 1/2 years ago she did tour readings in her carts every day but I never had anything to do with card readings because of my belief in Christianity it has also turned my face into a Mer woman blue face with scales and purple eyes I’ve been transformed a few times in real life it continues to manifest on me and it has been controlling my life not in a positive direction it has killed my dogs it tries to control the food that I eat it talks all day long I am confused I do not have understanding nor is it helping me to understand though it talks all day long maybe you could shine some light on what’s happening with me in the video you speak on it changing your life and that there could be a death there has been two literal Deas and it has killed 14 of my dogs it is also sent a sugar glider to my home for a pet but also killed the sugar glider I hope to hear from you it has dead people jump on my body and has me to tell people random people their future or had their family members jump on my body to tell them thanks I’ve never tried to be a fortuneteller or to tell people their futures I don’t understand it has consumed my daily life it walks me in circles it’s also try to turn my body into something different my face changes every day my birthday is November 2 this is gonna sound weird but it’s had me to have behaviors of other people and mannerisms that is hard for me to control I’ve been praying against it for many years but it is not helping I need help maybe you have some advice I look forward to hearing from you

  2. Heather says:

    HI I have a question and I was wondering if you want something will that hint at your spirit animal this might not make no sense, but I love to go out to the beach see the hills. Being away from people. I feel free but when I get home I feel caged and I can’t move away.

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hi, Heather!

      Being from Florida and being a water sign (Scorpio), I totally identify with feeling free at the beach but caged when inland.

      Your question makes total sense. If you feel a pull to a certain area, color, food, etc. that can be the beginnings of your Spirit Animal trying to get through to you. It might help to read my How To Find Your Spirit Animal tutorial.

      Hope that helps!

  4. Tita says:

    Hi I took the animal spirit test and got bee. I was confused and read what it had to say. Then I realized I’ve been seeing slot of bees lately. They usually come fly in my backyard but they land on the cement and die. I see them crawling trying to get somewhere and then they die. I got a bit scared and wondered why they kept dying. Do you know what this means?

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hi, Tita;

      There are so many Bees dying in the US right now it’s very hard to say why this could be happening in your area. There is no reason to be afraid. Sometimes, Bees get dehydrated and die if they can’t find water. So, in the area where the Bees keep showing up maybe keep a very, very shallow dies of water so they can get a drink when they buzz by.

      If you let me know what confused you about the Bee description I’ll do my best to help you sort it out!

  5. Samantha says:

    hey,I think my spirit animal is a wolf but i don’t know.I mean it pops up in everyday life and I have dreams about me as a wolf running through the woods.I really don’t know though,mind commenting.

  6. Eva says:

    ?I love all different kinds of animals but for some reason I feel most connected with the wolf. I have seen wolves only in captive though. No wild wolves. I have had animal related dreams but all are about all different kinds. I took your spirit animal quiz and got a dog but I feel that I am more than a dog, like a wolf (no offense). Maybe I am a wolf as my totem animal?? And a dog as my spirit animal?? Do I need to get out in nature more? Do I have to be more active? I have only seen a rabbit and a deer out in the wild or in my town that are not in captive. I taken plenty of other spirit animal quizes on other websites and gotten results like a deer, and I like that result. But I have also gotten results that I don’t like a snake. Could you help me a little please? I feel lost. ?? I also love to draw if that helps. I am really good at wolves and dogs. I love playing the online game animal jam as well.? Animals Forever!

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hello, Eva;

      Your love of the animal kingdom is an inspiration to the world!

      It’s not unusual at all to have multiple Spirit and Power Animals. However, your Totem Animal is ‘who you are’. Maybe it will help to read “How To Find Your Spirit Animal” because I explain the difference between Spirit, Totem, and Power Animals.

      That said, Wolves are not so very different than Dogs – just more ‘wild’ (less domesticated). If you’re drawn to Wolves and Dogs then that’s your animal soul family and don’t let any online test (mine included) change your mind or confuse you. Deep inside, just like all animals, you know who you are. Based on what you wrote, I believe your Totem Animal is Wolf/Dog.

      Also, depending on other Spirit Animal Quizzes, you might have encountered one that asked for your birthday. Those tests only give results based on birthday – which is one way to find your Spirit Animal but not the only way. In about a week, I have a brand new version of launching and there’s a really in-depth article about finding your Spirit Animal by birthday so I’ll post here when the new site is up.

      Hope that helps!

      Stay wild,

  7. Eva says:

    Same as Samantha’s comment as well.

  8. Eva says:

    Can you have a mythical spirit animal as well like a unicorn? (Cuz I feel connected to a unicorn as well)

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hi again, Eva!

      Absolutely! A person’s Spirit Animal can easily be a mythical creature. After all, their myths and legends came directly from observation and storytelling about ‘real’ animals. I actually am publishing some mythical creatures articles in the next few weeks so I’ll post them here when the articles are up.

  9. Eden says:

    I wanted to ask for your help to connect with my spirit animal. I feel like my spirt animal is a deer, beause I have had many dreams about deer. One dream that is really dominate in my mind is where I was hiking on a gravel trail, with my grandmother or maybe it was my brother. As we walked more on the path, we stopped because I saw a bunch of deer show up on both sides of the path. I don’t remember much, but then one of the deer comes up behind me and puts its head on my right shoulder. I think I then touched the deer head.

    I also have seen recently many deer. One time they came really close to me. They were not scared of me at all. The only problem I wanted to ask you is that part of me is feeling like the deer is not my spirit animal. I think it’s dout, because I always have doubt in myself and axienty. I have read a lot about deer too. We relate alot.

    Anything you can tell me will be a big help. I have tried meditations and everything, but I feel like my mind forces things to happens. Maybe its just what i am meant to feel. But, yay. Anything can be helpful. Thanks so much.

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hello, Eden;

      Since Deer keeps appearing in dreams – especially dreams about being on a “path” – perhaps Deer is your Totem Animal. Maybe read my in-depth guide on How To Find Your Spirit Animal. Hopefully, that will help you connect with the animal spirit guide needed in your present moment.

      Hope that helps.

  10. Maxine says:

    Really interesting site with a lot of wisdom shared.
    I seem to attract Jackdaws……for some reason they follow me around the local area, and pop up when I am three or four counties away.
    Do you have any insights about them? I know they are related to crows, but anything specifically Jackdaw would be appreciated.
    As I type there are three sitting in the garden fence laughing at my cat who is too old and lazy to be bothered to chase them!

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hi, Maxine;

      So happy you are enjoying! Thank you for visiting and commenting!

      Jackdaws are the smallest members of the Crow family. I’ll have the Crow Symbolism & Meaning article up in the next week or so and will post it here. However, because Ravens and Crows are family, maybe reading about Raven Symbolism and Meaning might help.

      One observation – Jackdaws are lightening fast and extremely intelligent. Perhaps Jackdaw is letting you know it’s time to make that decision you’ve been holding off on. You’ll make the right decision so stop second guessing yourself.

      Hope that helps.

      • Maxine says:

        Hi Bernadette Thanks for the reply. I’ve totally reinvented my career over the past few months….I just need my new venture to start paying enough! I look forward to following the Raven Family posts, your work really struck a cord with me and is really approachable.

  14. Retta Davis says:

    Hi! I have always been drawn to wolves. Several years ago I was living outside of town & there was the most beautiful black wolf that I ever seen that came up to me. I don’t know where he came from, but he would come up to & sit next to me when I was out on the porch by myself. If I was the only one home he would lay on the porch until my roommates were coming down the road. My roomates thought I was crazy, until one night my roomates were looking out my window & seen him laying under my window. Would my animal spirit be a wolf? Also trying to figure out my animal zodiac. I was born 03/13/1968 @1:30pm in Oklahoma. Thanks!!

  16. Karolyn says:

    Hi Bernadette,
    There is a very special little boy in my life who suffers from terrible nightmares. I have been researching spirit animals in hopes of finding something that I could give to him to put beside his bed at night to help him feel safe. His spirit animal is the Bear which totally fits his personality! Do you have any insights as to what spirit animals protect us in the dream state? Or is it unique to each individual?

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hello, Karolyn;

      Ohhh…I am especially sensitive to nightmares as I experienced them as a child (and still do as a premonition when there’s a catastrophic world event looming). Actually, Bears are the BEST protectors of the dream state because of their hibernation cycle. Bears know better than any animal how to stay safe and warm while traveling in the etheric. Bears also bring a sense of humor to almost everything they do and a good belly laugh can cut through fear like little else. However, that said, Bears are fierce protectors – they will stand tall and strong when the need be.

      However, all that said, to best help your special little guy, it’s really important to know what the nightmares are about. It’s entirely possible that he is having prophetic dreams, or he might be an empath who has absorbed negative energy around him (or from the world). Depending on what the dreams are about, Snake or Frog energy can also help protect during disturbing dreams.

      Finally, teaching children how energy works and how they can begin using it to more easily navigate the dreamstime as well as their life, can be really give them a huge head-start in this world.

      Sure hope that helps.

      Stay wild,

  17. Bernadette King says:

    Hi, Gavin;

    Animal spirit guides are universal. So, for instance, I come from a Jewish family but my Spirit, Totem, AND Power Animal is Bear. Remember, Spirit Animals show up when we need them, Power Animal energy is invoked, and Totem Animals are ‘who we are’. So, Totem Animals can be found with our Zodiac Signs (Western, Chinese, Native American, Celtic, and Shamanic Zodiac). So, don’t think that Lion isn’t right for you just because you’re Native American.

    Hope that helps.

    Stay wild,

  18. Patty says:

    Hello!♡♡♡. I just wanted to thank you so very much for all of the beautiful information you have put on this site. I am a fellow Scorpio, and a Numeroligist. . .I actually do all my own research and handwrite my findings for the folks who find me. I don’t charge, but, if they wish to give me a gift I will accept it. Anyway, I know how dedicated you must be to all of Earth’S 2 leggeds, smile, but also how knowledgable you are. Also, the word GIFTED comes to mind, as am I. I am ever mindful of my gift, and try to respect it in every way, as I also see this in your writings. May the wind always be at your back. . .

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hello, Patty;

      Numerology is such a sacred form of divination. I always marvel at Numerologists. What it must be like to be in your mind for just an hour! You are so right! You do have a gift!

      Wow. I almost fell out of my chair when I read your kind and generous words. I’m so grateful. See, my mom’s name was Patty and I’ve been missing her very much this year. I’d just asked her to send me a sign and here you are! PLUS, my mom was a SCORPIO – and so am I! Thank you for the work you do in this world! And so many blessings for being willing to deliver a message from spirit. My heart feels much lighter now.

      May the wind always be at your back, also, my soul sister.

    Hi, it’s me again, Eva
    Sorry to bother you again, but I want to ask you a question about a dream I had maybe a year ago and it’s always in the back of my mind.
    This is how it went roughly.

    There were 5 albino animals, a male fox, a female Arctic wolf, a doe, an owl, and a male raccoon. They were all together for a while, but then got separated. (Don’t remember how) They were all calling to each other and in the dream that lasted for two days. Then they all found each other in a big clearing in the forest.. Also it was winter so everything was white.

    So if you think this means anything, please tell me. If not it’s ok.

  20. Kathryn Anderson says:

    Hi Bernadette! 🙂 i recently rescued a barn owl from a mob of crows and magpies ( i live in Australia) and for the first time in close contact with an owl ever. all that was required was me crouching over the owl so it couldn’t be attacked as it took flight, the crows and magpies know me and allowed it to fly away. i am a native Australian and grew up in the bush and am aware of the intelligence of animals. i am wondering if this was contact from spirit or just another deed required of me. i am a soul often tasked to help other humans and animals of all descriptions, i just think it significant as it didn’t feel like a warning, which an owl in your path can be interpreted as such. any thoughts?

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hello, Kathryn;

      Apologies for delay in response – was on vaca!

      Ooooo! Australia! I’m moving in with you! LOL Thank you for rescuing that Owl! I don’t see your encounter as a warning. I think it’s a call to follow a healer’s path. In some cultures, Owl do have an ominous symbolism. But, for the Shaman, Owl symbolism and meaning is all about being a healer and ‘seer’. Maybe take a look at my article about the Owl Spirit, Totem, & Power Animal.

      Hope that helps.

        hi bernadette i hope your vacation was lovely 🙂
        yes i agree it was a sign i am on my healer path and not to get caught up with modern life (money and work) as the owl was on the steps to the entry door 🙂 lol this is the first job i’ve had in ages and it’s only 6hr a week, spirit says it takes up tooo much time, it doesn’t care
        about bills, just completing soultasks.
        Thank you for sharing your knowledge! it helps us healers sort out the message being sent, without doubting the information cheers 🙂 happy new year all the best

    Hi Mrs.King,
    I have to say I love this sight, I will not say I am new to spirituality but finding things more in depth is something I am coming around to as I have read some things but it has always been more a cursory glance. On one of your quizzes I was told the lion fit me, according to the zodiac it is the otter and in some ways I feel the otter does fit but honestly a good portion does not. I am writing because I feel something is just out of reach, either i cannot grasp or cannot see it but it’s there and I need help in the searching. I would like your advice if and when you have the time and am grateful for any help you can provide.
    thank you

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hello, Jason;

      Apologies for delayed reply. The first of the year is always an incredibly busy time for me. I’m so happy to know you’re enjoying!

      Discovering who we truly are is a many lifetimes journey. Though at first, what I’m about to say can sound quite generalized it is actually the ‘key’. Well, I think it’s the key. LOL

      Yes. We can look to our Zodiac Signs (Western, Native American, Chinese, Celtic, and more) to help us understand what makes us tick. But, at the end of the day, who we ‘feel’ like at the moment matters big time! So, based on the Spirit Animal Quiz you got Lion. That’s how you currently see yourself. But you do have personality traits of Otter in you – even if they don’t currently resonate.

      All that said, we all have traits of everything and everybody inside. We are all one and connected – through all time and space. While that can sound like a cop-out and generalized – can you imagine being consciously aware of all knowledge? Or having the abilities of every living thing? All at once? Well, that’s how I see ascension. One day, we will have and be everything and everyone.

      The trick in each lifetime is to be able to recognize who you are in that incarnation and figure out what parts of yourself are helping and what parts need some fine tuning. And, guess what? That changes during each season of your life! Isn’t being human wild 😉

      Hope that helps.

    Hello Mrs. King!
    I recently found your site after googling ways to find my spirit animal. I am a religious person and I love animals. I read your guide and I will be attempting to summon my spirit guide tonight. I am a bit nervous, but I have faith that everything will turn out fine. Do you have any tips for me with finding my spirit animal? Thank you!

    • Bernadette King says:

      Hello, Francesca;

      Apologies for delayed reply. Was away at a master mediumship development workshop with the incredible Janet Nohavec!

      Ooo! Your post was at 11:11! Take some time and Google the symbolism and meaning of double numbers (11:11, 22:22, 33:33, etc.). You’re going to be amazed!

      I’m guessing that by now you’ve already tried to find your Spirit Animal. Sure hope it went well! If you need some extra help, let me know. Until then, I would suggest you read “How To Find Your Spirit Animal – The Complete Guide”. Also, we don’t really ‘summon’ our Spirit Animal – we ‘ask’ for it/them to appear to us. There’s an energetic difference between ‘summoning’ and ‘asking’. Animal spirits respond much better when they are humbly and gently asked rather than ‘summoned’.

      Hope that helps.

    I have come to your site after googling the meaning of the bird Knot. Last Wednesday, 25th January 2017, on the anniversary of our first date 45 years’ ago, I scattered my husband’s ashes on the sea at Clymping, West Sussex, England. I also read his favourite poem Sea Fever. I wrapped the poem around a stone and threw it into the waves. As I did so, immediately overhead was the most amazing huge flock of birds (knots). They performed a beautiful dance before settling on the waves. Magical. I did not know what type of bird initially – not geese because not in a formation or starlings because they settled on the water. There were thousands in this flock and beautiful the wy they created beautiful patterns in the sky. A lovely tribute to my husband, Ronald, who is now free from his body’s physical pain, allowing his soul to soar.

      Please accept my condolences on your family’s loss. And, thank you for sharing such an incredibly moving experience. Sometimes, animal spirit guides are quite literal and obvious when they send messages. I believe this to be the case with you. Of all animals which could have appeared at that moment, it was “Knots” – as in ‘tie the knot’ which, of course, means ‘to get married’. Intuitively, I feel like your husband had a wonderful, playful sense of humor because, as I read “Sea Fever” this line jumped off the page and made me feel as though he always had a twinkle in his eye;

      And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover

      Also, Knots have one of the longest migrations of any Bird in the world – I believe this was his tribute to your 45 year history of shared love and commitment.

      Hugs and love from across The Pond.

      Stay wild,

    I found that I’m drawn to cats. Even as a child. For the past couple years there’s been cats wandering around my house and whenever I go out i seem to see one on the side of the road or the sidewalk. My first cat was almost like a protector and whenever I wasn’t feeling myself or would cry she would come from wherever she was and comfort me. If someone was near me when I was crying she would bite them because they made me cry. Now my cat who is a kitten does almost the exact same thing after the loss of my mother. Could cats be my spirit animal or am I reading too much into things?

  25. June says:

    Hello. Nice work! I clearly saw two lions walking by during my meditation today. They seemed like just walking together like partners perhaps guarding the area around me. Not coming towards me. Just calmly circling at a distance. I don’t see lion in your animal symbols. Any thots?

  26. Jon says:

    Quick question. I was watching Star Trek: Voyager the other night. I’m pretty sure that Star Trek is not the place to research this topic, but it did give me a question.
    The character said that if you reveal your spirit animal to another then you may offend them.

  28. Risha says:

    Hi, I think the Black Panther is my Spirit Animal. How do i interact with her?

    • spiritanimals says:

      Hello, Risha;

      My humble apology for the delayed reply. I’m working hard to personally reply to all comments on both my sites – and Right now I only have 2 hands but I am working on getting surgery to become an Octopus – then I’ll have eight! 😉

      This is a terrific question and one a number of folks have asked. Looks like I’ll be writing a tutorial on this subject. 🙂

      Interacting with one’s Spirit Animal can be done in a large variety of ways;

      • Meditation – ask Black Panther to come to you in a meditation.
      • Reading or Watching a Video – by watching or reading about Black Panther’s history, mating habits and rituals, feeding choices, personality and habits, and more, you can glean more insight as to why Black Panther is working with you at this time in your life.
      • Psychic Animal Communication – Everyone is psychic. And, everyone is an animal communicator – they (you) just have to believe it’s true. In our human spirit there lies a ‘decoder’. Meaning, we can understand animal speak if we wish. Animal communication is just like every other form of psychic ability – we just have to be open to the messages and still enough to hear them.

      In the next few weeks I should be able to get a more detailed version of this up on the Animal Spirit Guides Blog.

      Hope that helps.

      Stay wild,

        can you answer my question at the end?

  29. Piper says:

    Hi, so cats have been very attracted to me: I’m like the crazy cat lady, but all of my cats are strays. My first stray lives outside, and he wouldn’t stop meowing and crying. When I went outside, he stopped and stared at me, straight into my eyes. At a later date, a stray that looked just like my first was in the parking lot of Micheals looked straight into my eyes. He ran away, and then maybe a week or two later, he showed up at my house. He stared at me, and ran away. Thoughts?

    Good afternoon!
    I am not normally one to remember my dreams and to have two, pretty much back to back and actually remember them has me wondering..I had these dreams a few nights ago that I am sure mean SOMETHING but I am not sure what..
    In the first dream, we were out near the field at home, there were what seemed to be about a dozen friend/family members and myself just going about outdoor activities and playing around. Out of the corner of my eye I saw what I can only describe as a “cheetah like” cat.. it was much bigger than out farm cats, bigger than my old dog.. it was running at us.. The most odd thing was that it was coming straight for me, as my dog used to when I got home after a long day at work.. and I played fetch with it and it jumped up and licked my face..It didn’t seem bothered at all with anyone else that was there, but didn’t make any effort to go to them either. That is all I can really remember happening in this particular dream.. I can only remember waking and wondering where on earth that dream had come from. I fell back asleep and dreamt again.. This time I was walking towards my barn and heard something behind me as I was opening the door.. I turned to see two foxes.. one white & grey and the other light grey and black… I bent down and motioned for them to come towards me and they did.. jumping on my lap like they were my pets and licking my face.. then I felt something watching.. I looked across the garden at the edge of the field (where the first dream had taken place) and saw glaring eyes of what looked like a large wolf.. I remember being terrified and being worried about my horse.. I ran into the barn to get her inside from the pasture and locked us in the barn away from danger. All I remember after that was trying to contact my husband, that was in the house with my son and a friend of ours, so that he would get his rifle..but I couldn’t get a response… then I woke up….
    Any thoughts??? Even Two days later it just seems all too real.

    Thank you for your time
    Many Blessings :o)

    How can I find my spirit animal if many are coming to me owl wolf Cardnial my birthdays Oct 20 and it says I don’t have one?

  32. Ang says:

    Back in January I submitted a note that I no longer see and though I’ve joined the conversation my email shows no response to my inquiry so I’m resubmitting and I apologize if I missed something.

    I have always considered myself a dog person, although I love all animals. My brother is deathly allergic to cats and we never had much exposure when I was young. Over the past few years I have found that cats have been coming into my life. Each of these cats has adopted me or been a rescue, and each has either had immunodiseas or anxiety to the point that they required Prozac. After the 4th cat wandered up to my doorstep I have begun to wonder what I means and was hoping you could help. My original post had some more info but that’s the gist. If you have any insight I’d appreciate it.

  33. Kyle says:

    Look I just need help making sense of something I saw when I was 16 and it wasn’t a dream everything I’ve looked up is dream this and dream that this actually happened and it’s bothered me for years I was driving home on a back road one night and just happened to look out my window keeping up with my truck was a man with the head of a wolf I never saw any eyes I could just make out the body in the moon light and I wasn’t scared I was shocked honestly and no I wasn’t on something or anything of that such and I know what I saw was real and no it wasn’t a ware wolf because for what seemed like an eternity of staring at it it just vanished I’m just trying to find answers any help would be appreciated

    I have a problem, i realized that i have not been seeing my spirit animal in my dreams now, its been months since i last saw it, after that it didnt show up to me…i realized that maybe it’s because i forgot about them and i stopped believing in them….i’m scared that maybe my spirit animal hates me and left me alone…is there a way so i can see it again?…and is there a way so i can get close to it?….if you remember, my spirit animal is the white tiger….and i wanna get in touch with it again…

  39. Roy says:

    Mrs. King

    I have many questions that I have been seeking the answers to. Most recently, I did a meditation session. I have only done them for relaxation purposes in the past. The last two sessions, I did so seeking answers. Both times I found myself in a mountain forest.The second session yielded more than the first and was extremely vivid.

    I found myself on a game trail, tracking hoofed animals. The tracks looked to be elk or deer. The smell of the place was like that of decaying leaf litter. I could hear the roar of a coursing river off in the distance. I could feel the breeze on my skin. I heard the sound of a wolf howling. Not long after, a LONE WHITE WOLF appeared before me. He was unafraid of me and not aggressive in any way. I felt the same as he did. He eventually came close to me, not close enough to touch. It was close enough to where he seemed to respect my own personal space. I know from Native American stories, that this is an animal that requires the greatest amount of respect. Knowing this, I did not approach in to his space, either. Some time passed and the wolf and I just sat there, looking in to each other’s eyes. I felt a very strong connection to him at this moment. As calmly as he had approached, he left. Though he did pause for a moment and looked back at me. In this moment I thanked him for sharing his presence with me. With that he left in to the dark timber.

    What does this mean for me?? I am very interested to hear your insight on the matter.

    Very respectfully

    hi i was born in november and i don’t know what my spirit animal is.

  44. Thomas Carroll says:

    I know my Spirit Animal. I sat in a hogan with a shaman, Grey Fox of the Ute tribe (I am Irish, but have been adopted), he led me on my journey.

    My Spirit Animal is a large, grey wolf who stands 6 foot tall at the shoulder. He led me to many animals and had me ask them questions. I received many answers which have helped me in my life ever since.

    One thing Grey Fox told me that is very interesting. My Spirit Animal is known as the Grey One. He comes for those of the Ute tribe at death to carry their spirit gently to the west, and eternal rest.

    I thought that was quite interesting…..and a bit scary.

  45. lotuswind says:

    Hi.. I have been searching about snakes linking to psychic phenomena for many months now. I began to have this curiosity after this animal began to appear after doing a divination a couple of years ago. I did a divination on myself to discover my animal spirit guide. A woman with a long hair braided in two parts appears. At the ends of each braided hair appears a snakes (a total of two snakes). At that very moment i was convinced that the snakes were my animal spirit guide.

    Last May of this year, it was early morning while having a coffee at the kitchen, i was distructed by a noise, a plastic wrapper crippling noise, i began to look for it. In just a second or two i was shocked on what i’ve found.. it’s a snake climbing up on a wrapped umbrella hanging on a rod. I saw the snake on top of that rod. The rod happens to be adjacent on restroom door of my parents. Its a second entry door in the kitchen to my parents restroom and goes through their bedroom. After seeing that snake, i got terrified, i felt some fears then got curious of what does it truly means… For week, i have received a lot of signs and i ignored some of it though many questions runs through my mind intuitively. The night before that week ends, my father passed away. He had a heart attack, utterance of degrading words by his co-public servant triggered his heart to be on stressed.

    During the wake, everything that happens that appears before me flashbacks. Every details came out to be related to my father’s death.. i felt a big regret of not paying attention on the clues given to me. I could have solve that forthcoming puzzling event and do whatever things that might change it..

    Hope you could give me some words of enlightenment about my extra ordinary experience on animal spirit guide..

    Today I took the quiz to know my animal spirit guide after posting my comment. Surprisingly, it turned out the SNAKE.. It’s realy fascinating!

  46. Rebecca says:

    hi, I’ve been doing lots of reading when it comes to animal guides and this site is wonderful, only that I’m a bit confused, I absolutely adore wolves, they’re my favorite animals, but I was born in june 12 1999, in south america and I’m a gemini , which if I’m correct, it’s the totem of the owl? but as I was reading I didn’t felt connection or traits that connect me with owls, so I was hoping that you could help me find what animal truly represents me since I’ve gotten plenty of results and I’m confused if Im an owl, deer, etc

    other traits of me is that I’m a very creative person(I’m an artist and draw a lot) I tend to be a dreamer and have high expectatives, but somethimes I can be a leader, I get overwhelmed easily and need time of my own, and I get nervous or anxious quite easily, hope this also helps to determine what animal am I

  47. Trisha says:

    Hey uh..i think i told you that my spirit animal was a white tiger which is like a year ago, to be honest right now i feel like i’m losing faith in my spirit animal, it hasn’t contact me for a long time now, i feel like it left me,,? i don’t know what happened to it…i honestly did forgot about having a spirit animal and sometimes i was like “meh who cares about that sh*t” and now i feel bad, can you tell me a way to get in contact with it again..? i miss it ;-;

    Hello a hawk was flying in the sky above my car and at times it flies closer to the ground around my car. I have also seen a hawk sitting on the side of the road that i drive down a lot and when i went to drive past it i drove right next to it at a slow speed and it didn’t move an inch it was just watching me looking at my eyes. What do you think this means.

  50. Joesaphine says:

    hey a year ago i had two dreams of two different types of owls or the same kind but i can’t remember which. So, during the dream it was me, my brother, and two other people. We standing on a zip ling board and out of now where i put my arm out and a owl landed on it. But it looked like a snow owl. Than that same week,same dream but different owl but, when one of the people were about to touch it the owl flew at them and almost attacked them and they almost feel of the edge. what does this mean?

  51. Saphira says:

    I didn’t know if this was possible so I am asking. Is it possible to have more than one spirit guide? I have seen a wolf and a cougar and feel connected to both. I have always been called “catlike” or “wolffish”

    I alway thought the deer was my spirit animal born june 17 62 on fathers day

  56. Rachel A. Lewis says:

    Facinating & very inspiring. I tend to… actually I always interlink my spiritual studies together. Having an Owl as my Power animal really fits w/ my Destiny # 11. Having the snake as my Spirit animal seems to really fit with my Soul urge # 22. I tend to always see A Black panther at my left side (female) & a Crow atop my head (crown chakra) during Shamanic journeying. Recently I have been drawn to the snake, Owl, & the female Elephant. I always find solace & contentment with the animals, there is a reverent inate & humble power within all of the Divine creatures here. SOOOO Beautiful & immensely powerful. Always find the Zen within & there we see the infinite connection of Life, creation & of course Love. Namaste to all…Always.

  57. Kristina says:

    Dear Bernadette,

    I have been reading about the meanings of the different spirit animals on your site. I like your very simple way of describing their meaning, thank you! I am interested in knowing the meanings of the unicorn as a spirit/totem/power animal, could you send me something on that please?

    Also, I do guided meditations for children, andI have tried to guide them to find their spirit animal. I often find, though, that they pick an animal that they are fond of (such as a horse or a dolphin), rather than letting it “come to them”. How old, in your experience, would you say that children have to be before they can find their spirit animal through meditation / visualisation?

    Best regards, Kristina

    Hi, Bernadette!

    I’ve been following your daily readings for quite a while, now – really enjoying them – and, a few months ago, bought The Ark (with extras!) tarot deck – use that most days -really loving them, too! I’m based in the UK and for much of this afternoon and evening, I’ve been trying to pledge an Elephant (!!!) for your Kickstarter…but what do I do about shipping. I saw you’ve made arrangements with a UK-based distribution company – but that’s not reflected in the shipping options (just USA and Canada). What should I do? – just submit US since it’ll be the equivalent of local delivery charges? Similarly, I couldn’t activate the “Add Ons” option….

    Wishing you HUMONGOUS success with this latest venture. May your health improve and your strength grow

    Go very gently

    • Davida says:

      Hello. You will know what your Spirit Animal is once you know & understand what your biggest weakness is and what exactly has held you back most in your life. Once you know this, start looking out for reappearing signs (animals) that grab your intuitive attention. Then research the animal(s) via this website and you will feel strongly about a specific one. You cannot stop here. You need to then meditate on this specific animal even doing research on it from other sources. If it is your Spirit Animal, you will receive the reappearing signs of it in various ways. If it is not your Spirit Animal, thank it for its seasonal appearance in your life and continue this process. The Universe knows when we are serious about truly wanting to know more (in this case, your Spirit Animal) and looks at us with pure Awe. Because of this, the Universe will come through! Much Love to you…
