Power Animals and Spirit Guides

A power animal retrieval is a shamanic method used to connect us to helping spirits that show themselves in the form of an animal.  These helping spirits can provide us, our family, our community and even an organization or country with power, protection, and support.

A power animal retrieval can help restore personal, family, community, and organizational power.  In shamanic cultures, it’s considered to be more healthy and beneficial to live a life with deep connections to our power animals.  Power animals are one of many potential helping spirits that we enter into spiritual relationships with.

Healing with Your Power Animal

If you experience frequent accidents, your family is in a funk, your community has a string of bad luck, or your organization seems to be losing its ability to move forward in a positive and creative direction – these can all be situations improved by a power animal retrieval.

From a shamanic perspective, one of the four primary causes of illness is considered to be a loss of power.  A power animal is typically one of the first spiritual relationships a shamanic practitioner will restore, restoring lost power.

As humans, and particularly in modern culture, it is common for people to lose power, give away their power and have power stolen.  When we talk about power here, we mean the ability to define yourself or having the energy to create.  Without power, we have a hard time accomplishing anything – even the day to day tasks of caring for ourselves – let alone defining who we are.

There are many ways to restore power, and a power animal retrieval is one of them. Through a power animal retrieval, you request a shamanic practitioner to enter the spirit worlds and retrieve a power animal on your behalf.

Meeting Your Totem and Power Animals

You may also try connecting to a power animal on your own by spending time in nature and seeing who shows up, asking for a power animal to appear in a dream or through visualization and shamanic journey methods.

We’ve created a ten minute audio meditation to help you connect to a power animal. It’s part of our membership and can be accessed through Personal Tao on Patreon along with other patron-only audios, teachings and meditations.

Usually, we have more than one power animal in our lifetime.  Some show up for shorter time periods and specific teachings while others stick around for our entire life.

Once you have received a power animal retrieval and connected to a power animal find a unique way to engage its energy.  Spend time in nature with the power animal, put a picture of it in your home or office somewhere and try eating foods it likes.

Do you notice any subtle changes in how you feel or where your attention is drawn to? Are any of your senses heightened?  Do you feel more powerful, protected and supported?

A power animal retrieval can also be conducted on your behalf long distance through a spiritual healing session.

How to amplify and use the third eye and universe energy?


As I woke up I saw in my mind a wolf with a thin black cord round it’s neck with a violet coloured crystal hanging from it. I have looked up the symbolism of the wolf but I’m not sure if the necklace has any meaning or alters the meaning of the wolf.


Hello, I read your blog and have asked twice now for my power animal. It has been given to me in the last dream: rabbit. I did a few searches and found the rabbit is the teacher of fear. Is this correct or is their another meaning? Thanks!

I sometimes dream about the wolves. there is a pack of wolves that are constantly running. The first time i dreamed them they were running with fresh energy and with plenty of stamina. The last time I dreamed of them they were tired and slowing down.

Please help. does this mean that the wolf is my power animal or is it a… Read more »


I experience the same dream which is like im in the real world. And everytime i experience something bad is going to happen to me and i try to wake up from the dream. I can’t move or talk. I suddenly wake with a little scream. Can you explain this.


As a nature lover, the idea of connecting with a power animal is very appealing to me. I’d like to ask for one to appear for me in a dream, but my dreams are closed off to me. When I go to sleep, it is just a fade to black until I wake up. I think I do have dreams, I just can’t remember them. Sometimes when I wake up, there is a residual feeling or image from what I was dreaming. I try to focus on these feelings and images, but they always seem to slip away, just out… Read more »

One place that sometimes shows up in my dreams is a forest where I am walk along a stream and see predatory animals like tigers and leopards. They see me but ignore me, and I am amazed that I can walk so close to them and not be afraid.

Hello my name is Jolene and I’ve been very interested in these practices, I realized every since I was a little child I was always attracted to two types of birds one was the crow and the other was a big brown bird. As I was reading how to get connected with my spirit animal and how to really use my visions, it hit me that the bird may be my spirit animal. I also wanted to know how can I be more exposed to this practice and be able to use my visions…. Do I also have to pay… Read more »
