In both ancient and modern cultures it is believed that animals carry meaning, wisdom and power. Animals are driven by intuition and instinct, they survive and thrive by relying on their senses. Today, humans have developed their intellect and rationale to a point where relying on gut feelings and intuition are often overlooked. By reconnecting with the animal world we can rediscover our more spiritual and intuitive selves. It is believed that each of us has a spirit animal and if we can allow ourselves to connect with the essence and power of that animal they can guide us through life.
