Power Animal Retrieval – Everyone has at least one spirit helper in animal form. It is possible to have more and as you continue through your life’s journey they may change. Your power animal aids you whether you are aware of them or not. They provide protection, assistance, wisdom, direction and companionship. In a shamanic worldview, the individual’s personal power and physical vitality is a gift from these helpers, hence the term “power animals”. These spirits generally take the form of undomesticated animals and like their physical counterparts; they will come and go. When a power animal leaves the company of a person, another power animal usually appears to take its place. If this does not occur the person may experience a diminishment of personal power which might manifest as serious illness, emotional imbalance, bad luck, personal crisis or just a feeling of loss. As a shaman I will journey on your behalf and retrieve the power animal that you are in need of at this time. I will also teach you ways in which you can strengthen your relationship with it. Once your power animal has been retrieved, you may experience a resurgence of power, health or effectiveness.

Call Upon the Dog!

The dog has been considered man’s best friend for a very long time. They are commonly associated with loyalty, protection, companionship and service. They have been domesticated companions who at times may have been sacrificed for the benefit of the group or it’s master. In different native tribes they are valuable members of the community, they are babysitters, they help carry loads, they have served as protectors and assisted in the hunting.

Yao Over the Mountains List

In ancient China dogs held an important place and they had several myths related to them, they were so important that it became one of their totem animals that are part of their zodiac calendar. One of their most famous myth is the story of Panhu. This story is found in various clans and they are written by different people. The story goes that there was a legendary Emperor Di Ku of the Gaoxin clan who owned a dog named Panhu. Panhu helped him win a war by killing the enemy general and bringing him his head and ended up with marriage to the emperor’s daughter as a reward. The emperor later regrets this and tries to get her back, but he is unable due to bad weather that magically appears.The dog carried his bride to the mountainous region of the south, where they produced numerous progeny. It is said that Panhu’s wife gives birth to six girls and six boys. They intermarry and have children and their numbers grow. These people then live in the mountains and rule over themselves. This story was written by Fan Ye in the fifth century about the “Southern Savages”. Because they identify themselves as descendants of Panhu, the Yao people and the She people has tabooed eating dog meat.

In my own shamanic practice dog was the third spirit ally to show up. I was in a journey in which the goal was to share and spend quality time with my spirit allies. We were in the underworld by our favorite river. As we were all sharing dog came and did a little dance on his hind legs. I laugh and clapped as he danced. It was a very fun and joyous moment for all of us. He sat, we welcomed him and then we talked. I had asked him what he was here for and he said that he was very eager to help me in my shamanic journey and he told me that he was an excellent tracker of souls. I said ok show me and I let him lead the way. Before I recognized it, I was on the street that I grew up in and he led me to the front of my home. My heart started to pound at this point. As I walked in I saw myself sitting on the sofa crying and I knew exactly which day and event this was. It was my 12th birthday and I remember that no one had showed up for my birthday party and I was very heart broken. It was truly and event did changed me forever (however I never expected that I had suffered soul loss at that time). Dog started to explain to me the reasons why the people were unable to come. As he was doing so my heart lifted and my feelings of rejection buried deep within my heart felt dissolved. I welcomed this part of me that had been left in time. I showed dog my appreciation for bringing this part of me back and I started to return from the journey. I shared with a fellow shaman John (who was present at that time as this happened during the shaman circles that I facilitate) my experience and he did the seal in with his rattle and welcomed me back. It was quite a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Since then dog is an integral part of my soul retrieval team, he has been present in all of the soul retrievals I have performed. He is always eager to find the souls and bring healing to those who seek it.

If you are journeying and you see or interact with dog maybe it is time for you to volunteer for something purely in the spirit of service. You need to remain determined and resolute no matter what adversity you meet along the way. You should show your appreciation, loyalty and cherish those who you love.

Call upon the Dog when you…

… have been working on a project and your resolve is beginning to fade.

… are feeling lonely and in need of companionship.

… feel you need protection.

… feel like giving up.

… when you need help tracking a soul in non-ordinary reality.

Animal Message Spread 12-03-2014 GypsyMoons.com

Card # 1 Frog “Adapt and survive by accepting the inevitable and seizing potential”

The message frog brings is that of adaptability! Be flexible and adapt to the changes that may arise. Not only adapt but use this new found path to seek the new opportunities that it brings to you. This will ensure your success no matter what obstacles or course correction you may encounter in your journey.

Card #2 Porcupine “You may defend yourself honorably without hurting those close to you”

The message porcupine brings is that if you feel that you need to defend yourself from others it is ok to do so. However there is no need to always be in defensive. Act more like a porcupine, it shares his den with others and it walks around perfectly at ease and content it doesn’t walk around with his quills on the defensive. He only perks them up when it finds itself in peril. You can do the same, trust those around you and only when necessary do you need to take a defensive stance. Allow people in and you will reap the benefits, do not shut them out of fear of getting hurt.

Card #3 Tortoise “When changes are made for the sake of change itself, resist”

This card is telling to really think things through. Don’t make changes just because that is what someone else wants to do. If it is not broken, don’t fix it. When we make changes in our lives they need to be done for the right reasons and to help you further in your own journey. You don’t ever change for the benefit of others. You change because it is what is best for you and it is what propels you forward. Tortoise reminds you, that you have the power and to not give your power away. It is ok to stand your ground, just follow your own path, be truthful to yourself and listen to what your intuition is telling you.

Things to Keep in Mind When Establishing a New Relationship with a Spirit Ally

DigitalNativeAmericanSpiritGuides

As a shaman you encounter many spirit allies during your journeys. Some just stop to say hello and deliver a message, and some want to establish a working friendship with you. When spirit wants to work with you is a great honor but there are things that you do need to keep in mind when you are establishing a new partnership with a spirit ally. These have helped me during my own shamanic experiences and I teach them to my trainees. I figured they can help you in your own shamanic practice:

  • This is an equal partnership you are both an energetic being. Yes, you are currently limited because of the physical experience you are having at this moment and yes, they are wiser and more enlightened than you but don’t forget that you are also an being of light and you have innate power and you can be a channel for the power of the Universe and the Divine.
  • Don’t do anything you feel uncomfortable with, use your judgment and inner wisdom when I doubt. You are part of a society that have rules and laws that you must follow. You are accountable for what you do in this life and physical experience. If you are not comfortable with something they are asking for you to do then ask for a different way. Also remember that relationships are based on trust.
  • Have respect and show your gratitude during your interactions. Every time spirit lends a helping hand, make sure that you let them know how grateful you are for their assistance. Remember they are beings too and they do have feelings. This doesn’t mean that you have to worship them.
  • If you don’t understand something ask! You are interacting with them because you are trying to learn more about yourself and the world around you. So do ask questions when you do not understand something. If an answer is not available at that time go back and journey at a later time seeking an answer to your question. At times we are not ready for certain information to be reveals to us and that is fine, but don’t forget that you can ask that at a later time. This is why journaling is important that way you can revisit and see if you need to journey again to gain more knowledge.
  • Talk to them like a friend. Consult with them about your problems and concerns. They will provide you with a different perspective which can be very beneficial for you. You can also be given the solution to the problem you have been seeking.
  • Understand that you are in control. You can always set parameters for communication. If you are a highly intuitive and your Clair abilities are well developed you can set the rules for communication outside non-ordinary reality. You can also choose with whom and when you interact with when in non-ordinary reality. You do have free will.
  • Do not give your power away. This means don’t become over dependent on your interactions with spirit. You have your own inner wisdom, intuition and higher-self that you can rely on for your day to day living. You don’t have to consult with them for every decision you make. They are your friends and yes they are there to guide you but they are not there to live your life for you. You need to understand that you are responsible for yourself; this is your journey in this world. You need to be accountable for the decisions and actions taken. You are the creator and architect of your life.
  • Do journeys which the only purpose is to share with them and get to know them better.
