According to Native American beliefs, human beings have 9 animal spirits, also called animal guides, to follow you throughout your life. Some of these come in and out of our lives, while others will stay beside you for your entire lifetime. Finding them is not always easy - and while some people struggle discovering their animal totem others instantly feel the connection. Animal spirits can help us to gain insight, self-awareness and stay connected to the past while being at one with nature, but opening up to their wisdom is far from easy. Explore the world of animal spirits and indigenous beliefs – and who knows? Maybe you will end up finding your own animal guardian one day.
