Question of the Day: What Is Your Spirit Animal?

Question of the day

What is your spirit animal?

According to Wikipedia, a spirit animal is “Power animal, a shamanic belief of a spirit which guides, helps or protects individuals, lineages and nations.”

I believe mine is a dolphin. This might be part conjecture on my part, because I love them, and the sea, so much. I decided my spirit animal was the dolphin the first time I saw one in the wild. I was sitting at a restaurant, on the water, down here in Florida. I was visiting my sister, and still lived up north. I said in passing to my brother-in-law that I had never seen a dolphin in the wild. Momentarily, like within 2 minutes, a dolphin came out of the water and dove back in right in front of us, pointing at us. As if he’d heard me. I like to think he did, lol.  I have seen a few since then, and they always amaze me with their grace and beauty.

In the crystal world, a dolphin crystal is a large crystal that carries a smaller one with it, as if on it’s back. It’s metaphysical properties include protecting the carrier, and for years, I carried one with me, when I felt I needed to be protected from someone (read: my ex).

Today my friends and I are going on a two hour boat cruise in the bays and Gulf of Mexico. I’m hoping a dolphin shows up somewhere!

So tell me what your spirit animal is, or what you think it may be, and why, in a comment or a blog linked back here so we can all share!

As ever, love and light!

  1. I once did one of those on-line ‘things’ and turns out I am either a hummingbird or an owl! LOL! I would prefer being a tiger or an orca though! So I will compromise and hope for … DRAGON! 🐉

  2. I don’t have a official answer for this, but for as long as I can remember, I’ve loved dogs and horses. When I was 10 – 12 years old, I drew pictures of them constantly. Wolves are pretty cool. I love the water, whales and dolphins, and elephants, too, though that’s more of a feeling of respect and awe. I’m being pulled to the wolf.
