The Wolf As A Spiritual Guide


The Wolf As A Spiritual Guide



Animal Spirit Guides

In many spiritual and cultural traditions, animals play an intrigal part in our lives. Each animal provides it's own set of characteristics and gifts to us as a guide. Some spiritual beliefs carry this idea one step farther and define the purpose or meaning of the animal based on it's color as well. These spiritual guides help to show us the way along our own path through life. Teaching us a little about ourselves and who we are.

In many native American traditions, the wolf is considered to be the highest spiritual teacher in the kingdom, even above the hawk and eagle. Each color of the wolf brings a different lesson or knowledge. You can read about these meanings in the Spiritual Classifications of the wolf.

A female wolf is a creature of community. She's rarely alone. She shares responsibilities of family with her pack. She is loyal to a fault, some she-wolves have died trying to save one of their own pack members from danger when she could have run away and saved herself. So being loyal to a fault isn't necessarily good, but it ain't that bad either.

A wolf is territorial and not afraid of fighting for her home or pack. Like many dogs she is a little jealous of those she doesn't know or trust and will often try to put herself between her home/family and others. It's an act of protection, not possession. And in typical wolf fashion, she is also on guard to sense the slightest changes in energy for good or bad.

When not threatened and when treated with respect, a wolf will allow others to get close to her and to her pack. But when approached with deceit, or hidden agendas, she will often pick up on that scent and be wary of the contact. Often this "feeling" will appear much earlier than others. She has good ears for listening to the most intricate details, up close and far off. So that early warning system kicks in, even when the energy is at a far distance and has not yet arrived. So when you cross the path of a wolf, they often know you've been coming for a while.

So how does this "nature" of the wolf help you when a wolf is your spiritual guide? Well, it tells you a lot about yourself and how you deal with issues in your daily life. Those of us with a Wolf guide are often around others who are like minded. That doesn't mean we only associate with others who believe in magik or practice yoga, but rather with others who are equally spiritual or just as active. But we often back or protect our family and friends to the point of getting ourselves into a fight.

In the work place and relationships our territorial nature comes out. We work on a project and after a significant amount of effort, we can get upset when someone crosses a line and tries to take it from us or infringes on our part of the pond. When this trait comes out in a relationship, it's often mis-interpreted as possessiveness. When actuality it's more often a sense of danger or foreboding. We want to protect our mate and family.

Now take these same conceptual examples and apply it to your spiritual pursuit. The events on your daily path. How often do these traits expose themselves, through good or bad results?

The wolf walks beside us to remind us of the lessons we're here to learn. Over protection can mean one needs to learn how to trust others. Territorial issues are lessons of letting go. But the positives are there too. The wolf tries to show us our innate ability to "sense" to "see" spiritual undercurrents and lessons. To understand that we're not all alone and we have many "family" members to rely on.

So when your in a state of distress, call upon your animal guide for assistance. As the Wolf for strength and courage. Ask that your Spiritual Wolf help you to see the nature of an issue from spirit so that you can learn why it's occurring and how to proceed.

In all my shamanic studies..to find your spirit guide ( animal) You must journey or have someone facilitate this for you...you will need a double drumming cd..as it gets like a heartbeat so that you may get into trance easier..you need to get your self on a nature path and watch what animals come in..then you must ask them if they stop to talk..Are you my animal guide?   Sometimes they are not..but there to give you a message. Listen to this and keep walking on the path til it finds you..when it does come in for you..sometimes it does not the first time..you then ask the animl to come back with you...if he agrees you know this is for life...he/she will live within you and you must take care of it!

If you talk to the animals
they will talk with you
and you will know each other.
If you do not talk to them,
you will not know them,
and what you do not know you will fear.
What one fears, one destroys!

merry part to you

Awesome! I do believe native americans were able to use animals and to transform into them so this is not surprising ...to me at least! its rather cool! and we all have individual ways of interacting and growing so even if no one else ever heard of that it would still be ok for you!! I have a higher aspect that is a native american, she has been a bear, and has ridden on the back of a bear who was also her native american partner at the time !!! its all good!!

when i first met my spirit guide, it was a native woman but she transforms herself as a bird. she guides me when i have questions about nature and us as pagans, wiccans etc. she has guided me for a while now.
Comment by Bluesky~Valerie on May 15, 2010 at 10:06am
but of course!!! why not?!!! but then again you are only seeing it as a bird, there is probably alot more going on there! I mean how does this bird guide you? could the avrage bird do that!!!?
Comment by Shadow on May 15, 2010 at 7:50am

The Shaman’s Dream –
Octopus and the Manta Ray


Liquid pathways sparkle incandescent,
to us, it is not night,
Souls are souls, and we know
the places where the wounded ones hide.

Arms to hold,
a fast back to carry,
Think of us, your guides,
We answer your call,
That wordless, innate knowing
of Life beyond this taunt, tied line.

May love’s depths be feared no longer,
For this Ocean is neither deep nor dark at all,
It is as near as the breath in your mouth
and the Heart at your center
you finally know as your own;

Grace and Love go with you,
as you transcend to the Light of Joy.

So be it.
Amen.
