Real Spiritual Experiences

Spirit Animal


The cold November breeze twirled a few dead leaves on the pavement. There was a pleasant silence, we just walked wordlessly along the deserted road. The sky was of a gloomy grey, with blotches of dark clouds scattered across it. My friend and I had just had a long talk about our unexplainable experiences, and we were a little shocked because of the eerie similarities between them. After a long silence my companion softly uttered: "What is your Spirit Animal?". I was stumped for a few moments before realizing I had never thought about that before. I replied: "Well... I don't know..." After this, that was the only thing I could think about for a long time.

My first attempt to find out my Soul Animal was done through meditation. I had often used meditation to find my answers, so I figured this was the right thing to do. After a few moments, I saw a hazy picture in my Mind of a dark shadow that seemed to be crouching down. A little creeped out, I opened my eyes and tried a new approach. Before going to bed, I prayed for my Power Animal, whoever it was, to please come in my Dreams and give me a sign. That night I dreamed of being in a zoo, and seeing hundreds of sad animals in small cages. So far, I was pretty discouraged.

I then tried meditating again for I felt pretty stupid to have opened my eyes in fright the last time I had tried. I isolated myself in my special Spiritual room, lit some scented candles, and sat on my mat made of fake Grizzly Bear fur (keep this in mind). A few moments and I found myself in a dark forest. I was dressed in Native American attire and I felt to have been at least 12 years of age. I took careful attention of my surrounding using all of my Five Senses. Behind me, I heard four baby bears squealing for their mother. Directly in front of me stood a tall, beautiful and serene, Mother Grizzly Bear. She slowly approached me, seeming to be very confident and loving, and gave me a sympathetic rub. In my Mind, I heard Her tell me: "I will be there..." The four younglings behind me suddenly stopped making sounds. Mother Bear gave me a long look and walked slowly towards her babies.

That night, I prayed for her to come in my Dreams. I was positive this was my Soul Animal. In fact, she did come. What I dreamt of was quite amazing. I was in a house next to the most horribly dark and frightening forest. Little demons kept appearing and peeking their heads through my windows. I felt a fright like I never had before. It was so strong, so evil and dark that I almost couldn't bear it. Then, Grizzly Bear came to me through an archway in the home and I hugged Her. She told me She would always be there for me and that She loved me. I felt euphoria running through my veins. The most safe and loving feeling overwhelmed my body. I woke up sweaty and sick but I felt that powerful feeling pulsating within me. I found my Spirit Animal.

I have so many more experiences with my Soul Animal that I would be glad to share with you later on. Thanks for reading my lengthy story! Sorry for taking up so much time =P

I don't know how many times I have read this story, but I LOVE it! The only problem is I can't contact my Spirit/Animal guides... And I've tried everything! I also have an account on Psychic and Medium Experiences with the same Username.
Anyways thanks so much for uploading this story:)

I have a Spirit Guide and their is a difference between a Spirit Guide and a Spirit Animal. I think you can have both, but a Spirit Guide is usually a person who helps you in life and I guess a Spirit Animal does the same thing, but it's an Animal. I don't know if you can have both though...

Anyways, your story was really cute!

I loved reading your story! I was just looking for someone who had a similar experience of finding their spirit animal and I came across this! My spirit animal actually appeared to me in person; while hiking in the wilderness, the same black-tailed doe found me with her two fawns four times in the same day in different areas. Amazing!

I would say the soul animal would be more like a spiritual guide of some sort. Never really heard of a soul animal. Although there are many psychic albilities that people have so this could be. I really just don't know. But well written story. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Anna - didn't sound corny at all! Just over my head is all. Love animals though. The other day went to let out my cat and a lizard was on the deck. Afraid my cat would hurt it so went out first and tried to shoo it away. Waved, yelled, everything. Just sat there. Finally picked it up and sat it in the yard and it walked off. My youngest son is the same way. One day he had a snake, some kind of black one, on top of our hot tub, petting it. The snake seemed to love it. He didn't know what kind, and I didn't either, but he had found it out in the yard. I told him to take it back out there and leave them alone. It might bite. He looked at me like I was a little daffy.

After re-reading my story for a while I found it to be really corny. Sorry for the corniness everyone...haha...

Hmm...well I think a Soul Animal is a tad different. But I think a Spirit Guide is somewhat the same concept, only you actually see your Animal and usually they don't talk (unless in your dream, meditation...). Hope this helps ;)

I decided to go through the sign-up because dislike being a guest. Please explain about a Soul Animal. We are all animals lovers at my house. Our two cats have been us almost thirteen years (in April).

Sorry about being a "guest..." I'm GlendaSC in psychic experiences and haven't gone through the sign-up thingy here. Is a Soul Animal similar to what some call their Spirit Guide? I've had some astral projections and knew someone was with me. Even asked him/her questions but only a few times have gotten answers. Usually have to figure it out on my own. I called it flying before I heard the term astral projection a year or so ago, and the person, The Voice because I don't see the person, just hear the voice. Or is a Soul Animal different?
