& Working with Animal Guides
by Re, founder of Angel Messenger
It is my understanding that some Native Americans believe that only they can work with Totems and Animal Guides, and I want to make it very clear that it is not my intention to offend or to steal anyone’s culture. However, I know there is something going on with me and how I connect to living animals as well as messages from Spirit … and something else possibly. Part of it is new within the last several years, but part of it has been my whole life. I wish to discuss this here as a way of healing and to discuss hopefully with other cultures because it is my strong belief that NOW is the time for ALL Children of Heaven to come together to learn and understand. It is time for the evolution of Humanity, and that cannot happen without the Native American family. (And yes I do have much pain over what happened to their ancestors, possibly my own ancestors.) I connect deeply with a group in Spirit who I know as the Sioux Grandmothers.
With all this said, I would like to talk again about another assignment of body, mind and and soul as I did last time. I would like you to work on healing yourself and working with your own animal guides in Spirit over the next month. Then, later I will discuss more about my own experiences.
This will work all aspects, but it’s more body because you are physically getting outside in nature. I want you to get outside somewhere, not just at your house. Go somewhere that has more nature than your house. Ask Spirit to show you were to go, and just see/feel/know were you feel drawn or want to go.
For example, I like to go to the park by my house. I’ve been going to physical therapy, so I can finally walk around the park! Yay! 🙂
Maybe you want to go running, camping or hiking, fishing, etc. These are all great ways to get out in nature.
If you have chosen Body and the place you will be going, scroll down past Mind and Soul for the assignments.
(Choose your activity and location first, so that your outcome is not affected by this choice.)
Mind can be done at home if you have a “nature” spot at home. For example, I live in town, but my yard is like a scene out of snow white at times. It’s fenced in and private, and I feed the animals, so I have lots of small animals … lots of birds (including a whole family of crows), bunnies, a bossy little chipmunk, squirrels in all kinds of color combinations. They are quite comical and fun to watch. Even though I live in town, as long as no one is making too much noise, I can find a peaceful place to meditate, and that is what mind is all about.
If you have chosen Mind and your location, scroll down past Soul for the assignments.
This one is a bit more advanced. If you are already familiar with spirit animals, this one is probably for you. If not, I would recommend doing one or both of the previous exercises first.
For body, bring a notebook with you and log all the animals you come into contact with. Take photos of animals and nature. Note any animals that seem more interesting or more often. If you draw, sketch animal(s). Your interactions could give you clues about which animals are working with you right now or which ones are sending you messages. After you get home from your experience, research the “spiritual meanings” of your animal encounters. Don’t forget to take note of bugs as well. Even though they are small, bugs can have big messages.
For mind, sit in a quiet and comfortable place in nature. Take a few deep breaths. Calm the mind. When you feel ready and open enough, ask for an animal guide to appear to you. If it’s unclear at first, just be patient. Notice the edges of the image. How does the animal make you feel. Ask it to show you a memory to help you understand what it is? Or, if you do see it, ask it to lead you on a mission to show you something (as a guide in a meditation). See who shows up for you as that animal guide. Of course, not all these questions need to be answered in one sitting. There are also many guided meditations on YouTube you can try. (Mind can also be added to Body.)
For soul, this one is a bit more advanced. If you are already familiar with spirit animals, this one is probably for you. If not, I would recommend doing one or both of the previous exercises first.
Ask Heaven to show you which animal is working with you (or another person), and just be open to how the answer will come to you. It could be that you will see the animal. More than likely, however, it will be shown to you in another way.
If you are sitting outside staring at the clouds asking this question, you might see the answer in the shape of a cloud. That is possible. I recently asked this question about someone I love and was still thinking about it while I was washing my hands. When I rinsed my hands, the soap in the sink made a distinct shape of an animal. I have never received guidance this way and would have dismissed it if I were not me, but well … I am used to unusual things now. It happened very quickly, just enough for the soap to rinse down the sink. If I had missed it, Heaven probably would have tried a different method. I have seen and experienced so many different things in so many different ways, and I’m really looking forward to hearing what others have experienced.
Share with Me
I would love to hear your experiences. If you have family members who are open to discussing, ask them if they have had experiences like you have experienced in your life. Do you have prophetic dreams too? Do people in your family? I’m wondering if some of it is passed down in families or just random luck.
One Last Thing I’ll Share with You
One thing that has developed with me over the last several years … well, I might have always been like this but only noticed it in the last decade or so is how I see animals in people. I think this has something to do with spirit animals but am not 100% sure. I can look at a picture of someone or see someone on television and see an animal hovering over them, like an over-soul … or it’s more like their shadow is no longer behind them but hovering out over in front of their body in an animal shape. Sometimes the person can also have features that look like an animal or they can act like or mimic an animal.
Normally, my strongest form of psychic sense is claircognizance. I just “know” things. I don’t always know why, but I know, and sometimes my knowing won’t be validated for a long time. However, with this, this is like someone handed me a cookie while others are trying to tell me cookies don’t actually exist. I think there is a whole lot that exists, including cookies. I can see that cookie plain as day, and it’s much easier to trust what I can actually see. I know not everyone will understand what a cookie is because things need to be done very carefully, but cookies are real.
