The other day in yoga, the teacher told us we’d be working with the elephant. She had us wag our tails, sweep our arms like a trunk, and make all of our moves very creature-like…it was a little weird.
Though I have spent countless hours finding my (downward) dog, cobra, crow, and firefly, I’ve never actually considered connecting to the wisdom of these animals.
It seems that if I can tune into my spirit animal, I’ll feel more grounded in the earth which can help guide me towards making better decisions in life.
I’ll take the Golden Eagle.
Well, apparently it doesn’t quite work like that. According to ancient beliefs, our spirit animal chooses us- not the other way around. And to discover yours, it requires spending a lot of time in nature, observing wildlife and meditating.
I can work on the meditation bit, but spending time in nature with animals isn’t really an option right now.
So in the meantime I found this little quiz…
Turns out I’m a butterfly.
What’s your spirit animal? And what’s been your experience in connecting with it?
