Spirit Animals

Spirit Animals

While most witches work with animal familiars, many also work with spirit animals, this is done by choosing a particular animal, and taking into consideration its inherent energies. Each animal has particular characteristics that can enhance and empower, all magical and healing work. By understanding the archetypal energies associated with each animal, you can align with the soul of the animal you choose and work together in harmony. You may wish to work with one particular spirit creature, or to summon the one with the qualities required to empower and enhance your work.
