Have you Discovered your Spirit or Totem Guide?

So many of us wonder why we see the same animal pop up wherever we go. It just may be that the animal in question is your Spirit/Totem Guide. Some people see them as angels or guardians. If you know you have a connection to a certain animal and it often shows itself to you and acts as a guide, just remember it is just that – a guide. It’s not something that you have to worship and give yourself to. Usually the guide that frequently reveals itself to you has a similar personification that you share.  Individuals also feel they could be Ancestral Guides, such as a dear relative that has passed on which they believe to be reincarnated as the animal that shows up as a guide when you are questioning or contemplating life in general. If it’s an animal that is affecting you negatively – then this is not a spirit guide.

I have had several in my life – but I find as I’ve become older and wiser, the Owl has followed me and showed up more in my life now than ever before. Could you deny sitting by a lake in the remote wilderness all by yourself and watching the sunrise and the clouds dance and form perfect shapes of owl’s faces? (In the picture below – there were 2 owls faces side by side, but by the time I ran for my camera there was only one and a half there). It seemed the universe was putting a show on just for me – because no one else in the world could see the clouds form these shapes like I could. (I literally live at a fly-in only remote location in the middle of the wilderness). So the Owl it is…and a very honorable one at that. The Owl represents determination, independence, protection, patience, balance, intuition, wisdom, instinct, clarity, action & power. All the traits I’ve needed to do what I’ve just done with my life, sell everything and move out to the middle of nowhere – off grid. The Owl and I share being able to see what is hidden to most. We can see beyond deceit and illusion, giving us the ability to see things for what they are. The Owl inspires and guides with full inspiration necessary to fully explore the unknown and magic of life. Together we can navigate any darkness in our  life. The owl is a strong spirit guide for discernment and making decisions based solid foundations.


If you have an owl as a totem or spirit animal you probably like to explore the unknown. The mysteries of life are a fascinating field of interest. As the owl guides your steps, you are likely to develop an appreciation for life’s magic.

When the owl shows up in your life, look and listen for the subtle signs that are around you and pay attention to the winds of change. Night time is particularly auspicious for your creativity, so take the time to focus your creative energy then. Perhaps you are about to leave some old habits, a situation that no longer serve you or to bring something new in your life – maybe important changes are taking place or about to happen. Your animal spirit guide is a great helper to be attentive to what usually goes below your radar, but is now of particular importance.
