Animal Spirit Guide - Caterpillar

Several weeks ago my daughter and I were walking through our local botanical garden and we came upon a woolly caterpillar.  I was immediately taken back to my childhood and being so thrilled when seeing a woolly brown on the trail.  So concerned it might not make it to safety, I picked it up carefully. I was tickled the beautiful brown and red-orange beauty felt confident to crawl in my hand and not roll up in a protective ball.  I then did what all caterpillar lovers would do and placed it in the green belt to find it’s chosen location to start spinning a cocoon.

Animal Spirit Guide - CaterpillerCaterpillar Spirit Animal:

The caterpillar represents new birth and is a symbol of good luck.

When visited by caterpillar, know that a transformative change will occur.  It is when we give birth to new ideas and creativity.  This stage teaches us the importance of patience and that all things will come to fruition in nature’s time.

Caterpillars signify a need for a quiet approach to our activities and endeavors. Their visit  may even indicate that a person or persons are blocking our growth or serve as a reminder that we must look at things and people around us realistically at this time. Failure to do so will slow down our progress.Spirit Animal Guide Caterpillar

 Black Panther Animal Spirit Guide

The Panther is a very ancient and powerful spirit guide. Its power includes astral travel, guardian energy, symbol of the feminine, death and rebirth, understanding of death, and reclaiming one’s Power.

When the panther animal totem comes to us (whether it be in the form of images or real sightings) we must begin paying attention to the strength of our inner being – our internal fortitude, and the condition of our spiritual strength and valor.

Black Panther Spirit AnimalPanthers also beckon us to consider our darker side—analyze this side of ourselves and determine its motivation.  The Black Panther animal totem asks you these questions:

What is your Shadow Self attempting to tell you?

Are your passions assisting or hindering you at this time?

Are you still on the accurate spiritual path for yourself?

Are you choosing to suppress latent desires?

Are you choosing to put others requirements before your own to the point of self-disregard?

Are you choosing to be mindful of your movements, both physical and sensational?

Are you choosing to be defensive? Who or what are you protecting and why?

Spider Spirit Guide

Many of us shy away from spiders and the thought that they are spirit animals. To the native Americans, Grandmother Spider kept and taught the mysteries of the past and how they were affecting the future.  Steven D. Farmer, Ph.D. shares the following in his book Animal Spirit Guides:

Spider Spirit GuideIf SPIDER shows up, it means:  This is an opportunity to access your deepest wisdom and assimilate it so that it becomes a part of your daily living.  Beware of any potential traps or ruses that you’re tempted to get involved in.  Open your mind to the infinite number of possibilities that are before you, and make a choice.

Spider Spirit Guide


Call on SPIDER when:  You feel trapped and don’t see a way out.  You’ve had some negative experiences recently and you want to discern the teachings from them as quickly as possible.  You are not happy and want to make some significant changes.  You feel out of balance and want to recapture a sense of equilibrium physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

If SPIDER is your POWER ANIMAL:  It takes quite a bit to arouse your anger, but once that happens, your sting can hurt.  You’re in touch with and express a very powerful feminine creative force.  You have a knack for writing, with the ability to weave words together in new and creative ways, often affecting others profoundly with their magic.
