Animal guide question

How do you know what your animal guide is?

I was reading something that said if you see one animal a lot it's your animal guide but that can't be right, surely?

Whether one has an "animal guide" is a matter of one's personal belief system.

If this fits your belief system, then take it into meditation or dreams. Ask to be shown before meditation or sleep. It's also possible that an animal you see often (or in unusual places) could be your animal totem. Or perhaps it's an animal you're strongly drawn to or interested in.

I believe things like this are intensely personal journeys and not discernible by others. IOW, someone who claims to know your guides (angelic, discarnate human, animal, etc.) probably doesn't. Psychics might be able to tell you which animal(s) might be helpful to you, but rarely, if ever, can they dig into the profoundly personal parts of our journeys. These things are for us to discover for ourselves. If we rely on others to do our work for us, we learn very little.

Don't get me wrong, psychics can and do provide insight and guidance on deeply important matters. (I make my living as a professional psychic.) But I believe that the good ones don't do your work for you, but rather give you the tools and guidance to make these discoveries for yourself.

So... Ask for the information. You can do it in meditation or prayer, before sleep. You can simply ponder it and think about it, trusting that what you need to know will be revealed.

Enjoy the journey.

So my guide could be either cats, dogs, horses, wasps or snails (I hope it's not a wasp, wasps are little bastards)

Only reason I'm saying snails is cause one of my two cats is obsessed with bringing slimy snails back to the house from the garden - yuck!

I don't know. My belief system doesn't include the idea of one, or even two, "animal guides". I believe all beings are here to teach us and guide us. From a cat to a dandelion to a cow to an oak tree to...well, every living thing is a guide, teacher and guardian.

I was just offering some thoughts and ideas. Maybe others will weigh in with different opinions. (I hope so!)

I had a hoverfly hanging around when I was waiting for the bus as well, I told it clearly to buzz off (which it did), could this have been a sign from something?

I didn't know what a hoverfly is, so I looked it up.

Whether something is a sign is entirely up to the experiencer. No one else can tell you if something is or isn't a sign. It's extremely personal and what might seem to be a sign to one person might seem completely unimportant to another.

In general, a sign is something very unusual. This isn't definitive, of course, and is just a general guideline. If your experience tells you that a hoverfly is unusual, you'll then have to determine for yourself what it might mean.

In this case, if we assume the hoverfly was a sign, you have to figure out what they mean to you. You'll have to look at the experience and determine for yourself what it meant, and, perhaps, continues to mean.

Sometimes the things that make us ask questions are designed by the Universe to encourage us to find the answers that are unique to each of us as individuals.

I agree. I think animal guides are available to us all the time to give us messages. We aren't limited to just one or two animal guides, although we may have a specific power animal. I love Dr. Steven Farmer's books on animal guides. I'm always referencing it to assist me.

I agree that we can learn from all creatures, but I believe one's personal spirit guides are those animals with which you feel a special kinship. For me it is wolves and owls. This is my power song, given to me by my animal spirit guides:

I am Wolf, spirit-free to choose my own truth.
I pee on your traps and poisons,
Not to warn the others,
for they must choose their own path
and some have an affinity for traps,
But to show that I am smart enough to
recognize the lies, even disguised as they are.
I have no need of your carrion poisons
I can hunt my own meat,
blood-fresh and pulsing with the truth of life.

I am Old Owl Woman,
Spirit of Ancient Wisdom.
My wings are strong and silent;
My hands are bony talons.
I swoop down on the mouse of fear
and carry it to a higher place.
I learn by watching and listening.
I ask one question, "Who, Who?"
Creation answers, "I am, I am, Iam."
