Power Animal Journey

This journey is a very interesting way of getting to know your Power Animal and learning about his or her nature and the type of energy and qualities they bring to you. It also allows you to build a relationship and build trust with this being who is a helping spirit and who you rely on for advice, guidance and protection.

Dog on MoorsJust as with your human friends in Ordinary Reality, relationships need to be nurtured and trust needs to be built up. Your spirit allies, over the years, will help you and protect you in many ways, and there may be times when you need to have absolute trust in what they do or show you in the moment, perhaps because it may not be immediately apparent that it is correct. In those times, having had lots of times in the past when what they've shown you has been correct, and having spent time with them, getting to know them and feel them will allow you to feel confident that you can trust their message or their actions.

The Intention:

My intention is to go to the Lower World to ask [name of Power Animal] to show me his/her nature and his/her world.

The Journey:

As always, start at your axis mundi and repeat your intention 3 times before sending it out into the Universe from your heart and then entering the Lower World via your usual route.

When you hear the call-back, if using a shamanic drumming track, or when you feel you have finished your journey, thank all the beings you have met and return to your axis mundi the way you came.

Notes on the Journey:

Your Power Animal may talk to you, show you images and scenes, you may feel their emotions and thoughts. You may also find that your Power Animal merges with you and allows you to experience what it feels like to be them. Perhaps you'll learn about the nature of Wolf, or Bear, for example, and how they hunt their prey, how they look after their young.

Remember though, that your spirit ally is not "really" a bear, it is pure spirit; pure loving energy, and merely appears to you as Bear because that kind of energy, that symbol is what you need. Perhaps it says something about your nature, perhaps it says something about the kind of energy you need to use in your life - that particular message is for you to decipher, and a good way to start that process is through this journey.

Many people have more than one Power Animal, so it's good to do this journey with each of them. It's also good to do this journey every now and again with the same Power Animals and allow them to go deeper and deeper into teaching you about themselves as time goes on. Again, just as you would with an Ordinary Reality friend, you'll get to know them better and at a deeper level as time goes on.
