My name is Paula and I am 19 years old. I am a very spiritual and open minded native american from Canada. I would like to share my only experience with the spiritual world with all of you.
My first and only experience was with my spirit animal about 2 years ago. I was given the grizzly bear as my spirit animal earlier that summer at a pow wow on my reserve. Ever since I can remember bears were my favorite animal, my nickname was Paula Bear. Even before the Chief told me my spirit animal was a bear, I knew my spirit animal was a bear. I just sensed it.
One day, I just sat in my parents bed and listened to native american music as I began to meditate. I went into some sort of trance and I remember seeing a large green field with a clear blue sky. There were a few shrubs/bushes and one giant tree. I clearly remember seeing a mother bear walk from the distance with her 2 young cubs. They walked up to me and I remember the mother bear talking to me but her mouth didn't move, as if she were talking to me through my brain. The only thing she told me was "Rainstorm" and "Death". Right after she said that, everything just disappeared and when I snapped out of the trance I was sweating and a little scared.
The very next day I read online that one of my best friend's father had committed suicide that night and we also had a bad thunder and lightning storm.
I was so scared of what had happened, that I never tried communicating with the bear again. Some people may just call all of this coincidence, or made-up, but I know what I saw and I do know that this was real.
