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?
A very interesting question. I really am unsure of it. I believe that it's possible to have more than one though.
I've heard of people having many but having one "main" one (if that makes sense). Like you might have all five of those, but the wolf might be your main spirit animal.
I hear ya. Lately it's been more of the owl and deer popping up in my dreams, etc. What is your totem animal or animals?
It is only a superstition; not a scientific fact or religious fact or reality.
The messengers prophets of the Creator God guide the human beings with word of revelation from Him.
What a great question!
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.
I remember one medium at a local Spiritualist Church who had a donkey as a spirit guide. Whenever she went into trance, she would start braying in a most startling way.
Very interesting topic for discussion, Now I'm anxious to find out mine. Thanks for bringing this topic up.....
My animal spirit - the praying mantis.
Just don't tell my husband.
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!
How do you go about finding your Animal Spirit? I am really unsure of mine.
I found mine through a spirit walk I had with my dad and my husband (my dad is Cherokee and my husband Sioux). I had a vision of a wolf and the wolf has been my spirit animal ever since.
There are however other methods of finding your spirit animal. You can look at an Native American Zodiac http://www.whats-your-sign.com/native-a … mbols.html and find the spirit that falls along your birthday.
You could also contact a local tribe to find someone who will help you. If you happen to have Native blood, try to get assistance from someone from the tribe that your family came from.
Good luck on your journey and I hope this helps! Blessed be!
Thank you very much for your help. I've always been curious.
Thank you for your help and if I do go by that then mine is a beaver.
OK, thanks for posting this site, according to it I am a raven, and after carefully reading the description or rather qualities I feel convinced that it fits me to a tee...So I am a bird....
Well I just found out that I'm a hawk, fun exercise though. I took a test or rather a questionnaire which was fun and quick.....
http://www.jerismithready.com/quiz/ or http://www.youthink.com/quiz.cfm?obj_id=14798 With this test I'm a snake..... and on yet another I'm a crane....logic to this fable....I'm a ZOO............
It's ok to have more than one spirit animal Luis! Just try to find the one that represents you the best.
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.
The native american animal website also gave me a wolf. So 2 said wolf and 1 said owl and then of course cats.
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.
Peace within, safety without
*hugs and blessings*

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 this. I "get" hunting. I used to do a lot of it myself. But we killed...
