Spirit Animal

What is a Power Animal and do they exist?

Have you ever heard about the existence of a Power Animal?
Probably not. Me neither, until 1.5 years ago when I participated in Michael Harner’s Basic Workshop – The Way of the Shaman.


So what is a Power Animal?

Power Animals come to empower you, to make your life better in every way. A particular power animal can come to help you with an issue that is very specific for you. They stay with each individual adding to their power and protecting them from illness, acting similarly to a guardian angel. They accompany you in the challenges you face in your life. Each power animal that you have, increases your power so that illnesses or negative energy cannot enter your body. His spirit also lends you the wisdom of its kind.

Power Animal

This guide walks with you in each lifetime. There is a sacred and eternal bond between you and your Power Animal. He is holding your inner truth and therefore can remind you of who you truly are. If you have gone through struggle or pain of any sort, you can forget your truth, and reconnecting with your Power Animal can not only restore it, but can help you to overcome fear and doubt, and helps you to align with your life purpose.

A Power Animal may be a mythical animal or it may be one in nature. You may already sense who your power animal is, and strengthen this connection and integrate your Power Animal into your being. This will bring you empowerment and clear vision moving forward.

So do Power Animals exist?

They do! The Eagle in the photo appeared to me, just days before traveling to the US for the above mentioned Workshop. Obviously at that time, I did not recognize the meaning of this eagle to my life, as he was sitting there in front of my window, staring at me.


And guess what, when discovering my Power Animal it results that amongst others Eagle is one of my Power Animals…
