Discover your spirit animal

Spirit animals and animal guides are energetic beings that appear as an offering of support, enabling us to receive wisdom about a particular situation or event. I share why discovering your spirit animal is so supportive and all about ways to connect with them.

I have always had a strong connection with animals, from growing up on a farm in the countryside and seeing animals as friends, especially as I lived in the middle of nowhere, it was such a joy to spend time with them.

I have always been aware of animals in situations and simply love their role modelling. For example, I am a huge cat lover and I just so appreciate their ability to relax with such ease. I also love their boundary settings and they love a good cuddle. This has really touched me at appreciating their qualities and in particular I have learnt about boundary settings in my personal life and have thought of cats as a support.

You may already have an affinity to certain animals, they may just appear in your thoughts or in your heart as animals you love. What is you like about them? What can you learn from the way they move through their day? Can you adapt any of their qualities?

There are teachings all around us all the time in our everyday, noticing animals and their needs, listening to the sounds from nature, all of this can increase your sensitivity and openness to receiving wisdom. Specific meditations, relaxation techniques and healing treatments can allow us to connect in to relaxation and receive insights and support.

When I have received Reiki I have often seen animals and after researching their meaning been amazed at the correlations and learnings. I equally have seen animals when giving Reiki and it has been of profound support for the individuals receiving the treatment too.

The main benefit received is gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves and our unique place in the world. For example a Giraffe appeared when I was leaving a job and place of living and I felt unclear about it all, after reading up, the Giraffe was a reminder for me to take the wider perspective of things to help with the next stage, quite literally with their beautiful long necks. I also read up that in the morning they make gentle gestures and sounds and I loved that they are gentle creatures and quiet in the morning. I guess it had made me feel more at ease by being me and in the situation gave me comforting insights

In our bustling lives, we often forget our connection to nature, embracing our spirit animal reconnects us with the natural world, creating a deeper respect and appreciation for the environment. Their presence serves as a reminder to embrace our strengths, acknowledge our weaknesses, and navigate life with a balanced perspective.

Reiki alone can support gifting so much healing and support, which is why I have combined an offering to receive in all ways.

  1. Holistic Coaching – a session listening and supporting you in any blocks you have in your life,
  2. Reiki remote or hands on healing session, (relaxing and aligning chakras and insights) and
  3. Revealing your spirit animal, guides or beings that are wanting to offer you support at this time. We reflect on their qualities together and how best you can learn form them going forward.

If this sounds like something you would like to try, then please be in touch here.

It’s essential to approach this journey with an open heart and mind. Sometimes, our spirit animal might change, offering new lessons and insights as we evolve. The key lies in being receptive to these changes and allowing ourselves to grow through this connection.

Connecting with your spirit animal is a personal and empowering experience. It encourages us to embrace our authenticity, celebrate our uniqueness, and harmonise with the world around us.
