Crystal Guide for Spirit Animals


Crystal Guide for Spirit Animals

As the Manataka say, “You do not choose a spirit animal as your personal spirit guide. The spirit chooses you, and they decide to whom they will reveal themselves and make their friend.”

Native American cultures have long revered animals as the teachers and keepers of the natural world; they are viewed as sacred and divine guides that appear in our lives to teach us what we need to know. The belief that we hold sway over our animal counterparts is pure vanity and ego. Native Americans honor animals as emotional and intelligent beings, who can still connect with one another on the level of collective consciousness – something humanity was once able to do, but has forgotten over the years.

And more importantly, did you know that spirit animals have corresponding gemstones? It’s true. Everything is energy. Or to be more specific, everything has a corresponding vibration. And like vibrations can complement each other for various intentions. Much like certain vibrations are associated with individual elements or directions, the same can be said for the connections that exist between gemstones and our animal allies.

I have created a crystal guide for spirit animals below to help you understand the connection between various animals and their corresponding gemstones. Pay very close attention when certain animals and gemstones seem to come up constantly in your life. These are special moments which should not be taken lightly. Our guides often share important messages with us regarding our life path through animals and gemstones. Will you know how to interpret those messages when they come?

  1. Good thing I enjoyed your Beltane ritual and will be receiving fire agate soon. Thank you thank you

  2. The chart here is a little hard to follow because they don’t line up correctly. Is there anyway to fix that formatting. This information is so helpful and a wonderful reference I just don’t know if I am using it right.
