Your power animal/spirit guide will eventually make itself known to you. It will appear over and over again in different places, in your mind, in a picture, in a story, in the wild, or just about anywhere. My spirit guides (I have two) found me. The first one I had several dreams about it before I started having visions of walking with him (Puma), or him leading me to a place of enlightenment about myself and spiritual path. The second one (Hawk) made itself known first with feathers (I found two) then visions. Then one morning as I was sitting outside enjoying my first cuppa hot coffee, I looked up to the peak of the house because of a sense of being watched - it was Hawk. He came back every morning to watch me.
