Using animal medicine/symbology for spiritual guidance?

    Hi, I was curious if anyone else pays attention to animal medicine as spiritual guidance. I have correlated animal encounters in nature and dreams to be messages. For example: in the past week I’ve had a Cooper’s Hawk right outside my window and understand hawks to represent “messenger” medicine. Yesterday I witnessed two bald eagles outside my in-laws’ window and know eagle represents “spirit” medicine. And finally, I’ve witnessed numerous deer on my walks through the forest preserve near my house and know that medicine to represent “gentle”.

    Taking those three in I am contemplating the powerful presence of “listening for gentle messages from my spirit, Great Spirit and any other spirit guides.”

    Let me know if you experience the same or have curiosity about this type of spiritual work. I find it fascinating and magical.

    I am seeing this post now, however! I love exploring some of these concepts! I feel that animals offer signs and guidance to support our journeys, It’s a matter of us paying attention, It might be fun to put together a discussion class via zoom or in the studio to explore some of these ideas, There is a book called Animal Speak, by Ted Andrews that offers some interesting insights on this topic as well,
