How to Find Your Spirit Animal
Photography by Second Ave Photography

"The animals which are our totems are mirrors to us. They reflect lessons we need to learn and abilities we can most easily develop" - Ted Andrews, Animal Speak

What is all this talk about spirit animals?! How do you actually find your spirit or totem animals. This post is for those of you who have absolutely no experience with spirit animals and want to dive right in! First, I want you to imagine yourself as a child at the zoo. Which animal or animals did you have an affinity for? That is a great starting place to discover your first spirit animal or power animal. Also, you have many spirit animals that will come and go in your life, but only a few are your power animals, which stay with you for life.

Do you have any recurring animal dreams or any animals that come to you during meditations? That is a good sign or indication that those animals are a part of your totem! What about nature itself? Did you have a butterfly land on your nose today? Do you have a crow that visits you every morning? Well guess what?! They could also be a part of your animal spirit crew. It could also be as simple as the animal that you have a pure love for. Do you adore wolves or owls? Those animals could be in your totem too!

"Our totems help us to recognize our opportunities in life. They help define who we are and how to succeed. Their individual abilities reflect our own innate ones." - Ted Andrews, Animal Speak

Now that you have a few potential spirit what? Now, you research your animals! Learn about their behaviors. What do they like to eat? How do they socialize? Learn all of their positive and negative traits. All of this information can help you manifest positive things in your life and help you understand "you" better. For more information on spirit animal guides try the book Animal Spirit Guides by Stephen D. Farmer.
Energy Cleanse Bath Salt Recipe
Epsom salts and clay are a great combination for the ultimate detox bath. The salts will pull out and clear any negative energies. Also, try adding specific herbs for their symbolic meanings. I added dried Oregano for joy. Lavender for purity, love, and devotion. I also added dried Calendula for passion and creativity. The clay is great for softening skin, exfoliation, and removing toxins.

Ingredients you need:
2 lbs of Epsom Salts or Sea Salts
1/2 cup Red Moroccan Clay or other natural clay
A Pinch of dried Oregano
A Pinch of dried Lavender
A Pinch of dried Calendula
40 gtts of Lavender essential oil
20 gtts of Rose essential oil

How to scrub-a-dub:
1.) Soak for at least 20 to 30 minutes.

2.) Light some candles.

3.) Take some salts and add some high qualities oils like Argan or Rosehip for a luxuriating scrub. Envision scrubbing away the negativity and soaking up the positive vibes.

4.) Relax and enjoy! Some deep breathing with hands on touch for a bit of Reiki stimulation would be a great addition to this ritual bath time treat!

This is a massive throwback, but I realize that I did not share these amazing photographs last year and they scream Summertime! Second Ave Photography is responsible for these juicy Summer shots. Michael Stars is the featured Eco fashion company. Enjoy these squirt-able photos!
