Spirit-Totem-Power Animals

What are the differences between Spirit, Totem, and Power Animals?

Although I am guilty of using the terms interchangeably, each term has a specific definition:

  • Spirit Animals: Guides who appear when you need assistance, strength, motivation, or inspiration

  • Totem Animals: The animal energy you resonate with and represents who you 'are'

  • Power Animals: The essence of qualities or spiritual energy you want to bring into your life or that you can call upon for assistance in specific situations.

Tools to connect with Animal Energy:

  • Meditation

  • Creative visualization

  • Journaling

  • Dream work

  • Creative activities such as a vision board, painting, ceramics work, etc.  

  • Animal Card deck

  • Recurring signs and symbols
