There will be signs, guiding you on the way. The journey will be individual,
and you will need to trust your instincts,
and rely on your own inner knowing.
But I can draw you a rough map, and you can orient yourself in a certain direction...
First place to start: Start where you are.
To meet an animal, you will need to put yourself out in nature. But, most likely you already spend at least some time each day outdoors. Is it the park, your backyard, or even a city sidewalk?
There are animals everywhere...and birds and insects also serve as Spirit Animals. The trick is simply to pay attention to what you see.
Perhaps, three days in a row, you will see a blue jay as you take your morning walk. Maybe, as you start to watch for them, you notice cats everywhere. Not even in nature...you start seeing pictures, images of them, mentions in conversation.
And...you get a feeling when you see this animal. A feeling of connection, recognition, even. Could they be the one? Could this be your spirit animal?
Now is the time to dig deeper. Research IS your friend. Google loves you. Look up your animal...learn more about their habits, their gifts, what they can teach you. Animals Speak by Ted Andrews is an excellent book about the meanings of Spirit Animals.
There is a second place to begin.
Second place to start: Journey within...
A Spirit Animal has a shape in this material realm we seem to be in much of the time...but it also has a Spirit form, on the other side of things. Behind what is obvious, there are the subtler currents of Being...and this is something you can and do explore already, in your night dreams. Daydreams are an excellent route to connect with your Spirit Animals.
Set the intention to meet your Spirit Animal, find a comfortable place and let your mind relax. Create an imaginary scene, and enter into it....use all of your senses, to hear, see, smell, feel the world around you...walk deeper in, and find your Spirit Animal.
