Medicine animals, the spirit of wild animals permeate our consciousness and are with us all the time in, either in physical or symbolic form with life-positive support. When they connect with us, it is unique to our need and circumstance and essentially we receive an energetic infusion. The gift of the power animal connection comes from our spirit that is calling us to allow our cells to recalibrate to hold more light, power and energy.
Bring Gifts of Vibratory Infusion
By Sandra Cosentino, M.S., Earth-Spirit Ways series
Soul to Soul
We magnetically attract from the universe energies that support our survival and evolution. Medicine animals, also known as power animals or totem spirits, are part of this non-verbal language of spirit. Ultimately a mystery, the soul of each species is a magical gift. Each species is imbued with power and unique energetic frequencies, evolved from a far longer interaction with primordial forces of biologic life on the planet, than we humans.
Our Wild Allies
These wild allies of our soul come in many ways; such as, in a rapt moment of close encounter with a coyote’s bold yellow eyes or the close swooping in of a bird. They come in lucid dreams and the awake-aware shamanic journey experience. Wild animals permeate our consciousness and are with us all the time in, either in physical or symbolic form, with life-positive support.
At least three wild animal spirits are life-long companions. Others (even mythical ones) come temporarily to help us with challenging transitions. I have learned over decades of experience with the spirit of wild beings that each has distinctive power. When they connect with us, it is unique to our need and circumstance and essentially we receive an energetic infusion.
Even mythic or extinct animals can connect with us energetically.
Net of Consciousness
Animal messengers are a full body connection, not just a symbolic representation or words for the mind to understand. The language of our spirit is vibration. Insight journey work has shown me glimpses of vast consciousness surrounding us like a giant computer system. A circle of high frequency guides and animal spirits are interwoven into this net of consciousness around us.
Something in us triggers a response from this network–opens a link for consciousness to communicate with consciousness via vibration. Reciprocity is flowing both ways in this connection and triggers new creation in both us and the other intelligencer (animal spirit). This mutually respectful interaction flows from biological connection to the greater field of intelligence and is part of evolving consciousness in the physical reality. Our DNA is a receptor for spirit that is vaster than this biological incarnation.
This Elephant Energy painting by Energy Artist Julia gives a sense of the radiating field of vibration surrounding the animal consciousness.
Something within prompts us to reach out for help or to create movement in our life. The animal spirit is a spark. But it is up to us to fuel this ignition by our conscious connection and action. That moment of knowing connection with this sentient helper is like a seed to help us reboot and stimulate new life. We fertilize the seed they bring us by taking action.
I invite you to take the experience of a power animal connection beyond the symbolic level and let it charge each cell with their vibration. Surrender the thinking mind and let heart take lead as you invite this infusion to charge your own essence.
In becoming or shapeshifting into that power animal vibration, your essence or field recalibrates. Resistance may arise from the mind who is the keeper of the status quo. Notice where your body may feel contraction, breathe into those spaces. Just keep inviting the power animal energy infusion to flow through every cell of your body. Then step forward, in the ancient way, knowing a shift has occurred and taking action that flows from that.
It is helpful to take time and be with sun, meditate daily, rest more, listen to our dreams, and create time out from the thinking-planning-analyzing mind that thinks it is in charge of our life. Let heart take lead as you immerse in art, music, nature communion, physical activity and other attentiveness, present-in-the-moment practice. These time-outs are time IN connection to the greater field of our soul and source of life.
The gift of the power animal connection comes from our spirit that is calling us to allow our cells to recalibrate to hold more light, power and energy.
I agree with Martin Prechtel, when he said:
“For there to be a world at all, every indigenous, original, natural thing must start singing its song, dancing its dance, moving and breathing, each according to its own nature, saying its name, manifesting simultaneously its secret spiritual signature….Deep in our bones resides an ancient, singing couple who just won’t give up making their beautiful, wild noise. The world won’t end if we can find them.”
