All of us have animal spirit guides that are sent to us by the Universe. It is just that most of us do not pay attention and miss connecting with these guides, who are there to support us in the physical world. These guides will come to us when we need them and leave when their work is done. Animal guides can also change, in that the animal spirit guide(s) we needed yesterday, is not the the one we will need in the future. Always showing-up when we least expect and yet on time when our need is greatest. Then again, some animal spirit guide(s) have always been with us and will be, until we slip the surly bonds of our planetary home.
For as long as I can recall, I have had two-the wolf and the Red tailed hawk. My long familiarity with them, has allowed me to develop the ability to know when they are around. One day, last autumn, on a breezy afternoon, as leaves continued to drop, I attempted to rake the front lawn. Suddenly feeling drawn to turn my head, I looked toward the woods across the street. There flying through the trees and falling leaves, coming towards me, was a Red tailed hawk.
Like the swirling wind,
the Red tailed hawk’s powerful wings,
scatters the leaves.
