Spirit Animal Day. A spirit animal (or power animal) is a figure used to represent one’s inner qualities embodied by an animal. Tracing back to ancient spirituality, you can think of it as a patron saint or guardian angel-animal. A spirit or power animal “guides, helps or protects individuals, lineages and nations. In the shamanic worldview, everything is alive, bearing an inherent virtue, power and wisdom. Power animal(s) represent a person’s connection to all life, their qualities of character, and their power.”
Give your health or condition a spirit animal. Write today about it as though it is that animal. What qualities of the animal do you or your condition possess that are positive? How is this animal a metaphor for your experiences? What qualities of the animal would you love to tap into when needed?
