Finding Your Life’s Purpose with Power Animals

Digital illustration girl and waspThere comes a time for everyone (whether in this lifetime or another one) when you suddenly wake up and think “Why am I here? What is my purpose in life?” 

This is a valid question. So don’t get upset with me when I say that the word “purpose” is a bit misleading.

After all, what is the “purpose” of a star? Or a cloud? Or a toad? They simply are. And that is wonderful. As Joseph Campbell said, “The purpose of life is life.”

“Purpose” is really a concept of the ego. But that’s OK. The ego has been getting a bad rap lately. Like it or not, we are ego beings. In fact, it is what sets us apart from most other life forms. And it is a sign of a mature (or at least maturing) ego to ask its purpose.

Perhaps a better way to put the question would be “How can I best support the highest good?” But “purpose” works. Regardless of the term you use, the important thing is that the ego finally realize that it is a supporting actor, not the lead.

“Finding your life’s purpose…”

…is really just a matter of uncovering your inner natural self and expressing it fully. In other words, you don’t have to find your purpose. You already have one. You were born with it. It’s just a matter of tuning into it and clearing out the blocks surrounding it.

My 16 year old daughter came home the other day with a new word. (I love teenagers.) The word is “CHILLAX.” She explained that it is a combination of “chill out” and “relax.”

Awesome.

But when I mentioned the word at a healers’ conference I attended recently, the workshop leader immediately saw an alternate meaning:

“CHILL” plus “AX.” As in axing out the dead wood.

I like it.

And that’s really what we need to do when we’re seeking our “purpose.” On the one hand, chill out, relax, and open to your inner guidance. And on the other hand, axe out whatever stands in your way.

Howling Wolf and Moon What do Power Animals have to do with it?

There are many ways to “chillax” into your Life’s Purpose. But I’ve always found working with Power Animals to be a great way to get into it. Why? Because…

  • They’re easy to relate to.
  • They resonate well with the physical body, which helps you stay grounded – very important for spiritual work.
  • They are excellent at showing direction and pointing the way (once you learn to interpret their messages).
  • Animals are all about ACTION, which is the third step you need to take after relaxing and clearing your blocks.

Working with Power Animals has helped me find my husband (and stay with him through ups and downs that might have destroyed another marriage), overcome depression, and find a career path that is rewarding on so many levels.

It can help you, too. If you’d like to know more, do sign up for my newsletter. I’ll send you totem animal meanings as well as other spiritual guidance, and keep you informed of upcoming workshops and events that will help you find your Life’s Purpose!

Blogging from A to Z: A is for Animal Spirits

Boy releasing falcon spirit animal

This month I thought I’d do something fun. I’ve decided to join the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge! I’m using my other blog, Wild Woman’s Wolf Pack, as the primary blog for this, but since the theme (Spirit Animals) is so relevant to my work I’ll be re-posting here as well.

Since “animals” starts with “A” I thought I’d kick off with a few words about what spirit animals are and why they matter.

So, everything – everything in this physical world that we can see and smell and touch – has a corresponding spiritual energy.

If you’ve ever taken martial arts or done any acupuncture or energy work they’ll tell you about chi – the energy moving through the body. So we have energy always flowing through and around our bodies. As you get more attuned you can start to sense it.

But in addition there are also spiritual companions – for humans they’re called guardian angels. You have an angel that supports you. And so does each little rock and flower and tree and bird. (although they’re called different things.)

Yes, each individual animal has a corresponding spirit, but also there is a spirit governing each species of animal.

Bear in snowSo there’s the bear spirit and the mouse spirit and the earthworm spirit. And that’s what’s meant by a totem animal.

And these things are real energies in the world, but we perceive them as symbol, as archetype.

And that’s why symbols are such powerful things. When you start working with the symbols you tap into that spiritual energy that’s out there in the world, and when you align yourself with them you take on some of that power and they can support you in what you do.

Powerfully. As in getting back in touch with your inner nature. Finding your true purpose. That kind of thing. I know, because they’re doing it for me.

I could totally write a book on this (and maybe I will someday) but I’ll leave it here by inviting you to pay attention to the animals that enter your awareness. They have messages for you – they really do. And when you start listening to them and figuring out what they are telling you – look out, because they’ll totally transform your life! 🙂
