I have always felt deeply connected to animals and the spirit world. A few years ago, I was asking about my spirit animals that come and assist or teach me something about myself and the world and will guide me through my life, I was shown a couple different ones, all of them except the spider were white. But only recently have I noticed their guidance on my awakening journey.
I see life as a living oracle, full of messages and guidance from my greater self including what people call downloads. But I feel I am uploading my insights into greater consciousness more then downloading information. It is one of my purposes to gain insights and upload the information for the greater consciousness to understand and incorporate it into their being. But we came here with many purposes, there is not only one.
Animal spirit guides carry messages to us, they themselves are archetypes that have a generalized meaning based on their typical behaviours and stories, but they can also bring us a message through dreams and waking dream states. A spirit animal in a dream is like a “hey, pay attention! This is an important message!”
So, the other night I was having very vivid dreams. There was some art work I moved to hang up in my kitchen but I had to move another piece that was already hanging in that spot over to another wall, where another piece hung and I had to take that down. The first item was a stained-glass flower image, and the second item was a stained-glass angel. The item I took down to replace the angel was, strangely enough; a bottle of hand sanitizer. In an artsy shape and form but it basically was hand sanitizer.
How ironic, I thought. I am replacing hand sanitizer with an angel; archangel Michael. Which stands for protection and life purpose. The dream was lucid, and I kept going back to look closer at the details of the items. Then I moved forward to a spiritual shop in a neighbouring town, where I was looking around and talking to the shop owner who held up a dream catcher, when suddenly she said that we had a visitor.
A large white bear appeared and when he spotted me, he charged me happily and jumped up, held me close like an old friend he has not seen in a while. I was in a close embrace with this huge animal, a moment of fear told me that this is a predator, but it felt extremely comfortable and we played around for a bit.
Then my phone made a sound as I got a notification. When I took the phone into my hands, the bear was making a face. He let me know that he is not fond of the cell phone because it is distracting me from my path and my spiritual work.
I understood immediately, I have been getting this message for some time now, I felt that the phone has become a distraction and for many even an addiction. It keeps us from fulfilling our purposes in life.
The angel, the hand sanitizer and the white bear letting me clearly know what I had been thinking for some time now, that its time to remember why we are here and take necessary steps to make sure we will do what we really came here for and stop being so distracted by electronics, the news and phone messages.
Our angels want us to fulfill our own purposes, meaning we may have to take a real close look at where to draw boundaries and what we let into our reality and into our minds and hearts; remember to let go of the distractions, turn off notifications or even remove certain apps that keep you from your passion and joy and the work you wanted to do.
Our dreams are often one of the last resorts where spirit communicates with us if we are not regularly meditating or communicating with spirit nor heed the messages received. I found during the pandemic, with my kids home most of the time and me still working at the hospital, I had no time for readings, no reiki clients came and I began to drift a bit with my spiritual practice.
I still received messages during the day, but I was not paying attention because I was busy with work and kids. But in the end, when things are becoming dire, we will receive our spirit messages in some form or shape. Listen to your guidance, you are not alone here in this existence. Listen to it more closely then to other people’s thoughts and opinions, your inner guidance will tell you the truth, as long as you are actively participating in your own personal and spiritual growth.
The white spirit bear or also called Kermode bear, is one of my spirit guides, when we connect with our animal spirit guides and know who they are, we are more likely to pay attention when they come through to deliver their messages to us. A certain level of spiritual awareness is key to recognize it as such.
I hope this message found you well, love and light on your journey of life.
