Animal Ounces

A  L  O  A  !
Golden Plover - Kolea in Hawaiian

You can have
 a Spirit Companion Animal
to teach you
life lessons,
 to be with you
guiding & protecting.

Indian  Myna

  Dream of your animal, 
see your companion
 out of the corner of your eye 
 as you fall asleep. . . . .

Red-crested Cardinal, Paroaria coronata,
synchronous appearances 
of an animal, 
their image, stories, words,
  will reveal your friend. 
Give it a name.
Speak to your
Spirit Animal.

 Appreciate your 
Animal Friend 
until it is most real to you.
 Even when you are at work, 
and your pet
at home,
under the couch, 
your pet is real,
alive, and
loving you. 

Spirit Animals 
are like that too. . . .

" Sometimes 
the heart sees 
what is invisible
 to the eye. "

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Your animal companion
is a representative
of an ancient companionable

 " An ounce of loyalty 
is worth
 a pound of 
cleverness. "

Elbert Green Hubbard

I have a crow as my spirit guide. It an i met many ages ago. It knew i was not bright so he named himself Bob for me so even if i got it wrong and spelled it backwards he would still know who it was looking for a little help.

Animals are more human than man as there are no pretenses. One knows exactly how it will react. It's all black and white and nothing in between. They can be a best friend to the master, nothing treacherous. Great pics, Cloudia as always!

I'll have to think on this one. Don't know my spirit animal. Maybe I have many because I love animals so much. Meantime, my dog Daisy is sort of a spiritual companion. Have a great weekend.

Got two cats. They keep me occupied. Friends and comforts.

Teresa said...

I love your bird shots. Is Pixie your spirit animal?

Charles Gramlich said...

I don't have one ...yet ! If I do in the future I'm almost certain it'll be a cat :)

We capture an old feeling having animals around, a feeling that is still in our DNA, still representing of our past evolution. Our caves have changed; but our need to cuddle up with a protector is still there.

Beautiful Cloudia, and on my trails today I shall take extra special attention to all walks in our lovely animal world, even more than usual- enjoy your day too!

Jenn Jilks said...

Yes, yes, yes! Mine is the blue heron, who leaves us in winter!
Cheers from Cottage Country!

I love the idea of a warm and caring Spirit Animal. Wonderful post, wonderful photos. Thank you.

Cloudia said...

thank YOU, my true companions on life's path.......

Hilary said...

I wonder about spirit animals.. totems sometimes. I believe there has to be more than one. Each has different aspects which can help us at different times. Raccoons... I seem to belong to them.. or they to me, somehow.

Pietro Brosio said...

Nice birds and greens, I like the white dog too!
A beautiful post, Cloudia!

DeniseinVA said...

What a lovely post. I enjoyed the animal photos and the quote, and the animal spirit guide. I've always felt a close kinship to the tiger. Maybe ever since I have found out I was born in the year of the tiger, who knows.
