Spirit animals come in all shapes, sizes, and ways.
They are here to guide you, protect you, and teach you throughout your journey.
Spirit animals can shift throughout your life, sometimes coming into your life for only a short while to help you with a lesson or give you strength through a difficult time.
Others are with you from birth, and never leave your side.
Animal totems can appear in dreams, in nature, or even in the form of an animal you are deeply afraid of. They are all here to teach us a lesson.
Ways to find your spirit animal:
-An animal that appears repeatedly in your dreams.
-An animal you see often in your daily life.
-An animal that you’re afraid of.
Spirit Animal Visualization
If you’re ready to call in a new spirit animal, follow the below visualization.
- Using a guided meditation, journey to connect with your spirit animal. Ground yourself. Close your eyes and take a deep breathe. Imagine yourself in a beautiful garden with rolling hills.

Some Of Our Favorite Spirit Animals
When a Dragonfly totem flits into your world, she is asking that you pay attention to your deeper desires. With this in mind, you should also be mindful of the outcome that you wish to have. In other words, there are lessons to be learned, and “what you think” is directly proportionate to what you “see on the surface.” As a result, your thoughts are responsible for your physical surroundings. Thus, your Dragonfly meaning tells you that you must move through these illusions and “think” your dreams into reality.
You are being asked to understand that real power is the wisdom found in remembering your journey as a whole. Furthermore, compassion, caring, teaching, loving, and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are the gateways to power.
If an Otter has crossed your path, it is time to allow yourself the freedom and pleasure of relaxing and letting go of all your daily concerns. The power of Otter is in the knowing that you have to take care of yourself first in order to be of use to others. Go with the natural flow and ebbs and tides of your life and find joy and wonder in the small things that give you pleasure as an adult and that gave you pleasure as a child.
