When I found out that this weeks Student Blogging Challenge post is supposed to be about anything related to animals my literal response was, “Wait. What? I can’t even decide on what my favorite animal is!” Luckily for me, after sitting at the computer desk for 10 minutes I came up with writing this post about spirit animals.
This is what the Urban Dictionary says about spirit animals:
In pagan religions and systems, a spirit animal or totem is meant to be a representation of the traits and skills that you are supposed to learn or have. Online, saying something or someone is your spirit animal is a statement that said person or thing is a representation of you or what you want to be.
For example, if you are someone who quick thinking your spirit animal might be a fox. I know, I know, foxes general associated with being sly (“sly as a fox”) or something to do with tricking people, but as spirit animal a fox is not supposedly bad. If you want to learn more about the fox spirit animal click here.
Now what about your own spirit animal? If you want to take the quiz click here to take it. I got a wolf, which according to that same website means that I have (and I do quote) “sharp intelligence, deep connection with instincts, trust or lack thereof in someone or in yourself” I do partly agree with this because I do sometimes lack in trusting people especially when it comes to trusting people to do projects correctly or neatly. I guess you can say that I’m just a little bit OCD while organizing or doing stuff correctly. Not to mention that I have a very small group of close friends (compared to some people) and I trust all of them
except when it comes to projects. The other two qualities listed for a wolf are somewhat wrong and right, although I do feel like they do describe some aspects of me.
If you want to learn more about yourself and your spirit animal then I would definitely try taking the quiz linked in the above paragraph. Knowing more about yourself can come in handy!
If you took the quiz, then what animal did you get?
