The Beast Within
    #737555 - 07/10/02 08:11 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Have you ever noticed how different people seem similar to certain animals?
I think we all have our "animal spirit", that we have some kind of intimate connection with. Most people are consciously unaware of it, but it lurks in the subconscious nonetheless. Ever since my step out of early childhood I have felt a connection to the snake. Not a fascination exactly, but an intimate connection in the back of my mind. Almost every mushroom trip I see them, they are a source of all types of feelings for me- fear, love, energy, destruction, light, darkness, death, etc.
Does anyone else have a particular animal they feel akin to?
My friend says he feels a connection with the wolf.
Just curious...

I feel an intense connection to a hawk..or eagle.. my spirit animal
I also feel a connection to dolphins

I often have flying dreams...gliding over majestic land with an ultimate feeling of freedom and intense love
I also have dreams of swimming through the ocean with this same feeling

I once heard that when the human spirit is first formed, before it incarnated into a human body, it goes through the perception of several different animals. It actually "sees" through the eyes of an animal for a certain period of time, to learn basic survival tactics, and other 'instinctual' traits. I think this is the basis for the indian totem.

Canines (wolves and dogs). I've been known to sniff women's crotches upon meeting them, I drink from toilets, lick my own balls, eat canned horse meat and turn around three times before sleeping in my den. Oh, and I love to play fetch.

There are 3 animals that I feel I have deep connections with. Each of the three corresponds to a certain element as well.

One is the turtle, symolizing earth, longevity, and ancient wisdom.
Another is the eagle, symbolizing air, freedom, power, and keen awareness.
The last is the dolphin, symbolizing water, playfulness, intelligence, and a loving spirit.

I like the symbol of the eagle so much that I got it tattoed on my back:

Although i cant be sure which animal is my spirit animal, i can tell you that my traits resemble that of a goat. Im cautious, practical, patient, reliable and determined. Calculative is also a trait i find the goat and I have in common. Also, my Zodiac sign being a Capricorn kind of fits in.

How come the skeptic's posts all sound similar? The only thing missing is Swami replying with something like "My spirit animal is pussy" or some other sarcastic comment aimed towards women.

When we get tired of debunking new age hooey, sometimes we just let go and crack a joke. It just so happens that overt machismo is funny to me... I'm no misogynist, nor am I a womanizer.

It is very exciting that you should mention this because just a few weeks ago, while tripping, I suddenly felt close to or felt that I was an octopus. Since then they slip into my mind while meditating and I just feel an overall closeness to them that is very powerful.

So, I believe I am somehow linked to the Octopus.

I don't think I have to even mention mine (the name sez it all)

On a side note though: oddly enough, I wrote a poem a while back titled 'The Beast Within' (which of course, is why I decided to check out this particular thread) I'd post it, but it has absolutely nothing to do with the topic...so I'm kind of guessing it would seem out of place.

Ia Ia Cthulhu Fhtagn! I too am "linked to the Octopus" but only on an intellectual level. Let's hook-up when R'lyeh rises, yeah?

I have found in my experience that your spirit animal is not always what you think it is or even an animal that you "like" very much. For instance, like many others, I thought my spirit animal was the wolf (this was years ago) because I liked wolves and thought they were cool. gGod I was young! That whole lone wolf obvious association crap delusion... sorry to all the actual wolves out there!

Then about 3 years ago I followed the proper procedure for contact with your spirit animal and guess what? My spirit animal is the magpie. It's that crow-sized bird with black, white and dark blue feathers. I like the magpie now but at first I was horrified and pissed off. Magpie! A fucking MAGPIE?! But that's how it is - much wisdom from the magpie.

I feel a connection to homo sapiens. Heck, I made them in my own image. As a matter of fact, I like them so much that I have incarnated in their form several times.
