For centuries, Native American tribes and ancient cultures believed that each animal holds it’s own message and information, for the meanings of animals who accidentally cross your path.
The ancients have always considered animals to be sacred. Due to the behavior of animals, we can get a greater understand of the energy around us.
As per spirit guides, we also have spirit animals which we call Totem Animals, that come into our lives to give us messages.
In this article we have selected the most powerful meaning for a few of these animals.
If an Owl appears it would mean that you should be cautious, as the Owl tries to warn you that there are huge changes coming.
Be it good or bad, you should pay attention to your own intuitive/gut feelings, as it could be trying to point you in the right direction.
Owls are not bad luck omens, as some of you believe. They could be if you were to see two owls fighting. In general they are messengers of wonderful news, as they are considered to royal birds.
Ravens and crows are considered a bad omen, yet seeing one or the other could indicate that something will be revealed to you soon. It be that you should let go of something, so that you can move into a new cycle.
Cats are one of the most magical animals on earth. They are very intuitive.
Cats not only protect your home from evil spirits, it also protects your home from negative energies.
Should a cat appear randomly, then rubs against your legs, it’s sharing its magic with you. Watch their moves, as it is an omen that you have to listen to your heart.
Spiders are probably the most feared/disliked by majority of us, yet spiders in general are good omens and bearers of good luck, specially if found at night.
The spider is an symbol of mystery, power and growth. Spiders are a reminder that you should take control of your life, just as a spider weaves its web, you too should weave your own life.
A deer is a omen that the universe knows what you going through. It is telling you that you should face those problems head on, with grace and dignity.
As rabbits reproduce rapidly, they are an omen of fertility and abundance.
Rabbits crossing your path means that a change is forthcoming. Trust the universe!
Lizards are considered very lucky little creatures.
Should a lizard repeatedly cross your path and catch your attention, it is an omen that you should pay more attention to your dreams, as they could be trying to reveal something to you. There is a possibility that you have lost sight of your goals. You need to spend more time getting back on track.
Most of us link snakes with Adam and Eve. Snakes are symbols of great wisdom and power.
As snakes shed their skin, you have lost your drive, therefore you need to pay attention to your passions. You should place more energy into pursuing them, as snakes symbolize rebirth, transformation and healing.
Dragonflies up close are beautiful with bright colored wings, and usually are around water.
Dragonflies symbolizes change and self realization. They could represent your spirit guide that will help you, by giving you strength and let you know that we should never give up!
One of my favorites, considered very lucky.
Ladybugs symbolize good luck, wishes and joy. They are omens that there is a turning point in your life for the better.
11. Praying Mantis
Praying mantis symbolizes peace and stillness.
Seeing a praying mantis repeatedly, is an omen that you should create a space in your life to enjoy things that you have been missing.
