      Hi there! New to my shaman journey but have been exploring spirituality and connection for a while now and have felt that shamanism is my path, call it intuition?

      Upon listening to one of the audios to find your spirit animal, I discovered that it was a green cockatoo. When prompted with asking my spirit animal a deep question, I asked what’s the source of it’s power. My focus was guided towards its wings and bright colors, and I sensed it was its beauty as a means of protection. If you find it beautiful then it has value, thus making it a live treasure. In this I found that the colors of the cockatoo represents aura, and I can use aura (beauty) to induce trances, or hypnosis if you will. I know, it can sound kind of scary, right? But with any practice intent is the determining factor of the effect of the used power. I guess I have some exploring to do since this is all new to me..

      Anyways, I was curious to know if anyone else had discovered the source of their spirit animal’s power, how it relates to them, and their soul purpose on how they’ll use it to bring balance and harmony to themselves and the world as a whole. (Something to think about, huh?)

      Interesting question. So what secrets are hidden in your spirit animal? the main secret for me is the fact, that my Animal guides ( yes I said Guides plural. The first guide I encountered was a Fox, this animal followed me around for many years, when I use to Work jobs, attend school and was raising my son and caring for his ill mother. when I reawakened spiritually, I realized, i was being told to stop focusing on life and take time to play and have fun. My guide throughout my training , and main one now is a Bat. I am trained as a scientist. Shamanism, was never even in my mind, before I was called to this life, as a scientist I needed proof, analytical reproducible proof. My Bat, has taught me to see through my other senses and proof comes in more ways than through the eyes. I am an introvert, so communication and teaching is outside of my comfort zone. I was always feeling weak and vulnerable that is when the strength, nurturing and protectiveness and work with children and the dying, is needed I have a Female mother Bear that guides me. Also, When needed to lead that archetypal Alpha Wolf manifests.
      Many will say that you need one guide and only one to work with, I have found that the guides are just an extension of our own Soul. The conversations and teachings are the internal dialogue we have with ourselves.
      Spirit knows that sometimes we have the inability to relate to parts of ourselves because of shadows and past wounds. As I have accepted healing and wisdom , there has been less need for these guides.
      As I deepen my connection to nature, universal consciousness and spirit, I do not need an animal intermediary. I talk directly to those who I serve. This is the secret of my Spirit animals. I am them and they are me. There is no division, no duality I am a reflection of Spirit in this world.
