Spirit Animals: Hummingbirds


The hummingbird is one pretty little bird.  I began feeding them during the mid-summer months.  It was the first time in my life that I decided to do such a thing.  The reason was because I had a hummingbird come to the porch twice while I was sitting outside.  The creature buzzed me and then looked me straight in the eye.  I knew what it meant, so my dad taught me how to make their food.  My parents have fed them for decades.  Furthermore, when I hung the food out for them I learned that they are very feisty animals.  There was a clear hierarchy.  One dominated the others, hogging the food and bullying the others.  Because a hummingbird had never approached me before, I decided to learn mor...

Spirit Animals: Bats


I think bats are adorable.  Yes, I know.  That’s not normal.  I just think they are fascinating, beautiful animals.  In the summertime I watch them from the front porch.  They fly in and devour the bugs by the street light.  They are fast predatory animals.  People often associate bats with vampires.  However, not all bats are vampire bats.  There are fruit bats as well as many other species.  People typically cringe at the thought of the bat.  They fear them.  So when the bat swoops into your life, what should you do?  As always, take a look at the references.  I have found three primary blogs to be very helpful throughout this entire series. The Bat means that change is imminent and that y...

Spirit Animals: The Tiger


Are you being stalked by tiger?  Does that prospect frighten you?  Don’t be afraid.  The appearance of a tiger in your spiritual life signifies all sort of positives!  See the references for more information. The tiger is symbolic of courage and strength, of course.  In the wild, the tiger is fierce.  They can take down prey that is twice the size.  As far as giving you a visual of their size, the tiger is just as big as the lion.  They can even grown larger than lion.  They weight about 600 pounds and can grow up to 9 feet long. In everyday life, you see Tony the Tiger.  My school mascot was a tiger.  You will also hear someone say, “that’a boy/girl tiger!” or “hold on tiger!”  The first st...

Spirit Animals: The Ram


Have you ever watched any nature shows involving the ram?  They are one hard-headed creature.  They actually have a special padding on their head to take the impact of butting their heads together.  Do you know how they start a fight?  The ram hits another ram in the balls.  Seriously.  It’s sort of funny when you see it, but then the fights start.  Of course, if someone hit me in the privates I think I would be mad enough to fight.  So, when the ram comes butting into your life, what does that mean for you? (see the references for source information) The ram signifies new beginnings and conquest.  Again, back to the nature shows.  These animals are expert climbers.  They can manage their wa...

Spirit Animals: The Fox


Sly like a fox.  That is a very popular statement.  I’m sure you’ve heard it uttered at some point in your life, but why does that statement even exist?  Moreover, if you have a fox that has trotted into your world, what will that look like?  I hope to answer those questions as well as to provide more information about the fascinating fox.  References are below as always. Despite its reputation, the fox isn’t the type of spirit animal to play tricks on you.  Rather, they are teachers.  The fox spirit animal can offer guidance during quickly moving challenges, pointing out the quickest way around the blockade.  These animals are very clever, wise, and intelligent.  They can think well on thei...

Spirit Animals: Moutain Lion (Puma)


Mountain lions go by several names.  Some folks call them pumas others call them a cougar.  No matter what you call them, if one comes sneaking into your life, they can prove to be a difficult spirit animal to deal with.  Check out the reference section if you want to know where the research comes from. The mountain lion is difficult because you are usually placed into situations where you can become a target.  The insecurities of others often causes you to be an easy target.  So, how does this relate to the mountain lion?  This animal is a natural leader, and you probably possess those qualities.  If you know anything about leadership, you can ruffle feathers and your decisions aren’t alway...

Spirit Animals: Bears


As a child I loved Winnie the Pooh.  As an adult I love him even more.  When my son was born, his nursery was filled with Winnie the Pooh, especially Classic Winnie the Pooh.  What does this have to do with anything?  Winnie the Pooh was a bear, of course, and he was known for his head stuck in a honey jar and being a little overweight.  These are admirable traits (LOL). There are differences in the types of bears that can attach to you.  There are polar bears, panda bears, black bears, brown bears, Kodiak bears, grizzly bears, and many others.  In this post, I’m focusing on the grizzly, brown bear, and/or Kodiak.  Crediting is in the Reference section. The bear is a grounding force.  Bears ...

Spirit Animals: Cats


I have a student who has a black cat attached to her.  It is her spirit animal.  So, I wanted to dive in a little deeper to understand the significance of this animal spirit.  I know that the Egyptians held the cat in high regards.  They were keepers of magic in ancient Egypt.  How do these magical creatures impact our lives today?  I did some research and found some answers.  If you happen to have a kitty cat attached to you as a spirit animal, you will be very interested in what I’ve found.  As always, crediting can be found in the reference section. The first thing I found is who the cat is drawn to.  These animals are very wise and timeless.  They are explorers, so it stands to reason th...

Spirit Animals: The Raven


Every time I think of a raven, I think of Edgar Allen Poe.  The raven is sort of mysterious.  People often associate the arrival of a raven to be a warning.  They are messengers.  That’s true, but what does it mean when one flies into your life?  Again, see the crediting in the reference section if you are interested. Ravens signal the arrival of magic in your life.  A raven arriving means that there are changes that can be made in your life, and if you have dreams that you want to make a reality, now is the time.  The raven will take you to the darkest places of your inner conflicts and open doors to your healing abilities. The raven totem symbolizes intelligence, mystery, and the ability t...

Spirit Animals: Elephant


How in the world can an Elephant spirit animal even fit in your front room?  If a dragon can fit into your life, an elephant can easily make its way into your world.  As always, the crediting will be at the bottom.  So, if you want to see where some of the information for this post came from, take a look at the reference section. Elephants are beautiful animals.  These magnificent animals have a cognitive ability that amazes me.  They remember their dead.  They cry, and exhibit emotions like humans.  What does it mean when one of these animals attaches to your spirit? When an elephant arrives in your life it is likely a reminder that you need to be mindful of self-care.  I’m not just talking...

Spirit animals: Eagle


Aren’t eagles beautiful?  As the symbol of my country, I wondered what the animal means to those of us who have an attachment.  The eagle is another one of my son’s spirit animals.  So, as we delve into this study, be sure to note the reference section for proper crediting. When the eagle arrives in your life it is time to find courage and to really reach for the stars.  Don’t accept the words, “It can’t be done.”  Defy them.  this symbolic totem tells you to believe in yourself, and try to see things from a brand new perspective.  However, the eagle also tells us to be patient with what is happening in our lives right now.  It can reassure us that although the current situation is hard, wha...

Spirit Animals: The White Owl


What happens if you are told that your spirit animal is a white owl?  What happens if you recognize that you have a white owl without anyone even telling you?  What does that mean?  As we explore the meaning of this animal totem/spirit, remember to look at the reference section for proper crediting. The owl in general is associated with feminine energy.  It is also symbolic of the moon and the night.  These birds also bring about magic, prophecy, and wisdom.  An owl totem allows a person to extract secrets.  For lack of a better comparison, they are like a lasso of truth. Taking again from Harris (2017), a person who has attracted an owl can usually “see what’s usually hidden to most. When t...

Spirit Animals: Dragons


*Crediting:  In every post thus far you have seen a reference section.  In every post for this series you will see one.  Although it is standard, required practice to credit the reference in-text, I am forgoing this measure as this is not a scholarly article or scholarly research.  However, I will always give credit to sources that I use.  So what do you say we start explore spirit totems and spirit animals? Remember that the totem is the manifestation of the entity in your life.  The spirit animal grants the emotions of that animal to the person. Dragons are brilliant, mythical creatures that we attribute to lore.  However, from all lore comes some truth.  It is my personal feeling that at ...

It’s Time to Educate You: Spirit Animals


Do you know what an animal totem is?  Do you understand the significance in spirit animals?  According to Urban Dictionary (2016) spirit animal is defined as an animal who chooses you or you choose it to get guidance & learning.  Furthermore, these animals help you through life, and the Native Americans believe in this phenomenon.  There’s something to be said for the ways of the tribal people. Animal totems represent the way we use our spirit animals to help us.  Moreover, some of those animals are believed to focus on various energy sets that we need to cope with daily life (StarStuffs, 1997).  The animals that attach themselves to us offer us strength, healing, ferocity, and even peace.  ...

Month of thanks: Day 30


On this last day of November, I am thankful for another passing year.  I’m thankful for my family, friends, job, son, and so much more.  I look back on where I was each year I made these posts either on my blog or on Facebook.  So much has happened.  We’ve suffered losses, but in doing so we gain strength.  We grow, even if it means we are kicking and screaming while we do it.  I truly hoped you enjoyed this thankful series. Tomorrow begins a brand new series about mysticism and spirit animals.  If you are interested in the paranormal, this will be right up your ally. I am thankful for all of my readers and my followers.  This post is devoted to you.  You make my books come to life, and you ...
