The concept of spiritual animals or animal guides is a concept that exists across a number of different cultures and belief systems. For some, this is closely related to your zodiac, for example – it is well known that those who were born under the sign of Taurus are associated with the bull, while others, like Native Americans, have a different structure for determining of your spiritual animal.
Each of these spirit animals exerts its own influence in your life, drawing on various personality traits, strengths, and weaknesses. It reveals a unique insight into who you really are and what you bring to the world around you.
These animals are closely related to our soul or our true self. In some situations, these are personality traits that we already know, something that we clearly demonstrate on a daily basis. However, other features are hidden and may even be unknown to us. Discovering these hidden gifts can help us reach new heights in life.
