They are equally crucial to understanding one’s actual self as totem animals, which also serve as guides and offer us important lessons about death and rebirth.
The idea of animal guardians dates back to ancient times, giving rise to the name spirit animal. The phrase was primarily utilised by Native American and other Indigenous religions and societies before being embraced by Wiccan and Pagan mysticism in the 1990s.
However, not all indigenous people hold this belief, and each tribe has its own, sacred system that includes ceremonies and customs for choosing a spirit animal.
Another type of spirit guide, thought to have been with you since birth, are spirit animals. Archangels, guardian angels, ascended masters, departed loved ones, and helper angels are some other types of spirit guides.
