When we tap into the realm of Spirit, our totems, power animals and animal guides are there to greet us. Our animal guides have insight into our past, present and future and hold within them the key that will inevitably unlock our pathways to success.
About the Seven Archetypal Animals
Excerpts by Scott Alexander King from The 7-Day Chakra Workout by Anita Revel
- Koala: Koala medicine encourages us to embark on the inner journey when we are in need of guidance. It pushes us to go within, find the silence and to explore the stillness. It is also a powerful ally when combating depression.
- Snake: Snake, as both a feminine and masculine energy and a symbol of life, death and rebirth (depending on the tradition), is the quintessence of polarity. Feared for her venom, snake is likewise revered for her regenerative ability to shed her old skin and emerge as a new being.
- Bee: Bee, as a regular ambassador of the goddess, promises abundance, wealth and prosperity. Bee sits within those of us prepared to work as a team, trust absolutely and compromise one’s own wants and desires while working toward a unified goal (especially when nothing tangible is on the horizon except the promise of a new day).
- Dog: Dog, few would argue, holds within its very being the pure and untainted chi of the heart chakra. Dog medicine advocates unconditional love, loyalty, trust, companionship and absolute acceptance for others and one’s self.
- Eagle: Eagle, as the highest flying bird, holds a sacred bond and connection to the Great Spirit. It instils a sense of foresight, bravery, strength and perception in all who acknowledge its presence.
- Dolphin: Dolphin navigates us through life ensuring every breath we take is one imbued with purpose and prospect. She acts as our spiritual eyes, guiding us through life in a productive, meaningful way. Dolphin speaks of higher levels of wisdom, meditation, sacred breathe, freedom from anxiety, spiritual communication, dreaming, healing, psychic connection, birth and rebirth.
- Magpie: Magpie patiently demonstrates the truth found in both the dark and the light and the pitfalls and benefits of being spiritually headstrong.
