As has often been said, the most important thing in any relationship is to listen;

Especially if it’s your Spirit/ Animal Guide!

-----------------

This was made for Animal Spirit Guide Contest, hosted by Pendragon-Arts and CRPhotomanipulation

Skill Level: Intermediate

Guidelines: Show the relationship between a person and their Spirit Guide 

Due Date:  October 15th to November 30th, 2018

Limits: Only One Entry per Person

----------------

Definitions:

Spirit Animal: a spirit which guides, helps or protects individual, or nations

Spirit Guide: a spiritual entity who guides, or protects, others

Totem Animals: animals revered as sacred, in certain cultures.

---------------

Update:

I’m still trying to decide whether to use this,

Or,  This Way , as my entry for Animal Spirit Guide Contest, hosted by Pendragon-Arts and CRPhotomanipulation.

I wouldn’t want to offend the owls or ravens.

As Fairloke says in My version of DeviantART Eclipse, in their suggestion, I could take a poll, even though just a regular participant on DA, without a Core membership.

That sounds cool.
-------------------

Memo:

Like anything to do with Spirituality and Personal Beliefs or Traditions, this is extremely complicated.

But, basically, it’s probably best to listen to the animals, because:

They might be Spirit Guides;

Or, their animals, and they probably know more about what’s going on around them than the average human.

In either case, it’s always nice to have help.

------------------

More than once, I’ve gotten lost walking around, while it’s gotten cold and dark;

And, hares, Ravens, wolves, or chickadees have pointed the quickest way to go.

--------------------

Granted, there wasn’t always a lot of clearance on the path; but, they were right.

Whether these were Spirit Guides, or just ordinary hares and rabbits, or birds, and wolves, going about their business, who were watching out for traffic, et cetera; and, who knew the way;

As my Grandma often said, I guess we’ll find out, when we get to the other side; if there is one.

That people don’t respect and listen to anyone, especially animals, enough is patently obvious.

Thanks to all the Stock Artists, Administrator, Hosts, and everyone.

Somehow, people got the idea that they were the pinnacle of Evolution or Creation, and ran with it;

Without considering how that also made Humans part of a larger, largely interdependent whole;

Whether that had evolved over billions of years; or, Divinely Conjured, in six days is immaterial;

Humans haven’t been very good at showing respect for the process that made them, and they rely on, in any case.

Listening to:

Lola Blanc - The Magic (Official Video)

Ladyhawke | Magic (Official Video)

The Cars - Magic (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)

---------------------

I knew someone who said she could transform herself into a crow;

I thought she said “crone”.

[So, needless to say, that didn’t go well.]

----------------------

Who knows? There are worst things to turn into.

My Dad turned into a Trump-Supporter; before he was just apathetic.

So, yeah, worse…

---------------------

Take Care of Each Other…

-Cat…

---------------------

Peter Gabriel - Solsbury Hill

Just listening to this, again;

A Golden Eagle almost landed on me once.

I was just standing there, minding my own business,

When I heard this rustle behind me and turned.

I must have looked like a tree, when they were being harassed by some crows.

------------

Some of my best friends are Ravens;

Hate to admit it; but, I don’t always get on with crows;

And, their Blue Jay cousins, they like to imitate the phone ringing.

Corvus humour… guess they think it’s funny.

You are so poignant and so very eloquent. As I look at this, I feel the snow falling.... the delicious silence that only falling snow that is covering the land offers with the whispers of nature, sharing with you their secrets. This is so lovely darling!!! I love how, with the counsel and wisdom that is offered to her, she walks out into life, into the world outside her safe zone of her home. The falling snow, the animals, the light really focusing attention on her and her thoughts.... so beautiful... just like you. :heart: I wish you the very best of luck and thank you so much for sharing your vision and inspiration with us in this very personal challenge journey. :happybounce: Airborne Winner Tight Hug Rose Kiss
