You are probably aware, since you are reading this site, that everyone has spirit guides. For those of you who don’t know much about them; they are people in spirit, who you may have known in a past life, or they could be deceased relatives who want to help you achieve the happiness you deserve. Some spirit guides are strangers who want to help you fulfil your life’s purpose and they have the enthusiasm and the knowledge to help you do this. If you want to find out more about spirit guides and how you can communicate with them, there are lots of articles on this website that go into this in more detail.
So, what are animal spirit guides? Some people call these ‘Power Animals’ because they are able to offer protection and bring out your best qualities by encouraging you to be more like them. Unlike human spirit guides, animal spirit guides don’t necessarily have to be ‘in spirit’; you may find that you attract your power animal in your day to day life. For example, I have always had an affinity with cats. I am more of a dog person and keep a pet dog but, for some reason, cats always follow me and want to get into my house. There is a black cat that comes to my house every day and it stares at me. I know that cats are my spirit guides because of this and, even though they aren’t necessarily my favourite animal, I believe that cats have a message for me. I also believe butterflies are another of my guides, because I see them all around me and sometimes they fly onto my shoulder and stay there for a long time. I don’t know many other people that have this experience.
