In most cultures, and traditions, there is a belief that every human has at least two Spirit Guides, who protect, and guide him, since the day he is born. Spirit Guides can be your ancestors, but they can also be animals.
Therefore, a spirit guide in the form of an animal, it is called Animal Totem. It executes the energy of that specific animal. Some spiritual people, who work with energy, may call them ‘familiars’, or simply ‘spirit animal’.

It is believed that a Spirit Animal chooses you from the day you were born, until the day you die, becoming your Animal Totem. Animal Totem chooses you, and not the way around.
Even if other Spirit Animals will accompany you on your path, it is still their choice to do so. However, they rarely become Animal Totems, meaning they stay for a season, not a lifetime. The reason why they choose you, vary from protecting, and guiding you, through a period of time, to helping you excel in some difficult tasks. Spirit Animal’s energy may aid you differently, depending on the issues that you have on your hands.
For example, if you work with energy, and you want to manifest something fast, you may work with Spirit Animal of the Fox, to help you think quick on your feet, make wise decisions, and also not be caught in your work. If you have a difficult problem, for which you would have to build a lot of courage to handle, Spirit Animal of the Tiger could aid you.
You can harvest the energy of a certain Animal Spirit, but you can’t choose them to be by your side, or help you, whenever you want to.
How to find your Animal Totem?
Your Animal Totem represents qualities, abilities, characteristics, that you currently have, or that you are in the process of developing. Even though you may have one Animal Totem for your whole life, it is possible that you will find yourself accompanied by different Animal Totems throughout your life.
- You can find your Animal Totem through meditation – You will have to start your meditation with the intention that you will meet your Animal Totem. You have to focus on your desire, while you allow all other unrelated thoughts to flow. It may happen that during your meditation, you see the animal, or you smell something, or you hear something. If none of this happens, do not get discouraged, sometimes it takes a couple of tries to dive deep into the trance state where you can receive these messages.Source: Sophie Wilkins
- Also, keep in mind, that your answers may not come during mediation, but in your dreams, as well as by pure synchronicities – For example, you may start seeing more cats than usual, or suddenly be surrounded by owls’ photos, or information. You may also feel curiosity peak up for a certain animal out of the blue. You should follow your intuition.
- If you feel you have not received any answer, or you can’t figure out your Animal Totem, you can always ask a psychic.
- You should also take into consideration those online quizzes that tell you which is your Animal Totem. Online quizzes may sound like something to waste your time on, rather than an effective way to figure out important questions. You might want to reconsider, because a well-made online quiz will depict your character, and personality traits, therefore it is accurate at some degree. We already said that Animal Totems represent your qualities, and abilities, so give it a try, if you feel like going to a psychic for an Animal Totem evaluation, is a bit too much.
