How many totems or animal spirit guides can one person have or is supposed to have? I feel as though I have five...if that's possible. The wolf, the deer, the horse, the dragonfly, and the owl. Possible?
It doesn't really matter how many guides you have. What you might find is that some will fade away and others may take their place. The guides you have at the present time, tend to reflect the stage of development you are at - that's why some of them may change from time to time. But you tend to keep your main guide permanently and there are no rules about how many you have.
It's interesting that the wolf is one of your guides - the wolf is the protector and opener of the ways between the physical and spiritual realms. I remember many years ago a few people in the New Age movement moaned about the amount of 'wolf guides around' - finding it all a bit sceptical. But as a number of people pointed out to them, myself included - if they look at what the wolf symbolises - 'opener of the ways' then if more people are following their own spiritual path, it makes sense to have the wolf as a guide, as this powerful animal guide is an excellent one for giving protection and knowledge on any spiritual path - as more people attempt to 'open the ways' then the more the wolf guide is required.
No, seriously... I'm a turtle. I dream about them very often and I've had turtles and tortoises all my life. I dream about finding them in the oddest places, picking them up and taking them with me. I see a lot of the turtle in me. I'm very patient, good natured, and cautious. I'm also very aware of my surroundings, very spiritual and very stubborn... Yes, turtles are stubborn creatures. You find one crossing the street, stop the car, pick it up, take it to the other end of the road, and five minutes later you'll see the same turtle crossing the road again. They're not suicidal... just stubborn!
Luis, I took the quiz on both of the websites and I'm an owl on one and a snake on the other. It was quite entertaining and the questions really made me think about myself. Some of them were so similar it was just a matter of degree which once was the best. Thank you for posting the websites.
One said Owl and the other quiz said Wolf and I have always been very mych in touch with cats. It seems like even the wildest cats will just walk right up to me like its nothing but if anyone else is around or tries to touch them they run, scratch, hiss etc. It's been like that since I was a kid. Strange wild cats everyone says they can't go near just literally walk right up to me. It was scary when it first started.
Just a word of advice for everyone, websites help but definitely don't rely on them to find out your animal guide or guides. Usually mine come to me in a dream or literally in reality. Recently I've had dreams of deer...so I find that the deer is representing a path in life that I'm coming to...not sure that path yet but I'll update you all when I figure it out! In the past though, I've had a dream about actually dying and becoming a wolf. I've also had dreams about horses. The owl and dragonfly have come to me in reality, in my own yard on many occasions. Thanks for sharing everyone, a very interesting thread this one has turned out to be!
Is it wise to reveal your animal totem ? Not all spiritual individuals out there have the BEST or most positive intentions.
That would be like Achilles, telling his enemies that his heel is where he is vulnerable. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. This also includes your totem. If someone wishes to do you harm, they don't necessarily have to be in "physical" contact with you, if they know your spirit totem.
I hope everyone here, that has "revealed" theirs, have taken up shielding, or some other protective measure.
The gray wolf lost its endangered status and will be fair game to hunters beginning this fall. I checked the regulations for Wyoming and found that in much of the state, wolves can be shot any time of year. I don't like...
Hi Hubbers,I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub ALL ABOUT SPIRIT GUIDES (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!
