What Is Your Inner Animal?
Do you tend to ‘bark’ at people? Howl at the Moon perhaps? Do you have catlike reflexes or can your psychic ‘whiskers’ pick up nearby energy vibrations? Do you have a ‘nest’ or like to ‘burrow’ under the covers? Do you actually even growl sometimes?
What animal traits do you think that you sometimes exhibit? Has anyone ever told you that you remind him/her of some animal?
How much of an animal nature do you think that we humans might retain? Should we attempt to completely conquer or tame the ‘animal’ within? Or do you consider your inner animal to be an ally or alter-ego?
What is the name of your inner animal? If you share space with an actual animal, does the animal (or animals) consider you ‘one of them’? Can you and your animal friends communicate in mysterious ways?

A number of years ago I used a card system called Medicine Cards to discover my totem animal guides. Was I shocked to discover that my inner being animal is the crow! Although I had closely identified with most of my "other" animals (this method is done based on seven directions) , at first I couldn't figure out why the crow?. I am not really a bird person. Since then, I have learned that this reflects my nature of examening important issues from one side, then the other, as a crow turns their head to view something completely. Jamie Sams, the wise lady who authored the Medicine Cards, tells us that crow examines life from the perspective of divine law. Now I notice crow will be around to give me warning whenever something big in my life comes up.

I went on a shamanic journey with a friend, and met starfish. She's very connected to the earth in the ocean.
Got to admit, it's an odd one. Other people get wolves, or hawks, or things like that, and I get a Starfish?!?! *lol*

even though my favorite animals (while growing up and currently) are the cheetah and the dolphin, I have a really strong connection with dogs. I've found the connection only recently, and I hardly believe how it happened or why, but maybe someone else casn explain cuz I'm pretty confused. I was visiting relatives in Maryland, and they have this beagle, right? my cousins and I were looking for her leash one day, and we had searched the whole yard for it and we couldn't find it. so I (being the uberwitch that i am (NOT!) ) decided to ask the dog where her leash was. Not like I was expecting an answer. and it doesn't take a genius to guess that, since I wasn't expecting it I GOT ONE! I heard the words in my head : Look to the East. and, having run out of mundane options and trusting in the fact that I am not schizophrenic, I am a WITCH, I decided to do just that. Turned to the east, took three steps, and TAH-DAH! Took me ten seconds to find what three people had been looking for for about an hour and ALL I HAD TO DO WAS ASK THE DOG. Very humbling experience, and pretty darn confusing. don't believe it? me neither, but *shrug* it was kinda neat. If I could only get my dresser to tell me where that odd sock went...
Brightest Blessings, and remember, MAGICK CAN BE FUN!

My animal is, was, and always WILL be the BEAR!!! :)
In the gay community, I'm a bear - heavy-set, bearded and hairy. In all my dealings with any shamanic rituals, the bear always has been there for and with me.
I also have a spiritual 'side-kick' that is a cinnamon-colored grizzly bear, so what else could I have?

My inner animal would have to be the cat
Because I have sharp reflexes
I have always been able to communicate
Even animals that didn't know me
took an instant likeing to me
