I'm completely new to this forum so I might be posting this in the wrong place. If so I'm sorry for the inconvenience
Anyway I have some questions about power animals that I would like to your opinion about.
A couple of years ago I started having dreams involving animals at the start of each schoolterm (so about twice a year). The dreams were kind of different, from those I usuallt have, it felt as if the animals were visiting me (sometimes they were even walking towards me.). Eventually i started researching what the dreams could mean.
For instance I once dreamt about an elephant surrounded with vicious tigers. After googling "elephant and symbolism" I figured the meaning of the dream was I should be patient and rise above the competitive nature of my surroundings. I used this dream and message to great effect in my private life, envisioning myself being an elephant whenever I needed to.
After that I've always tried to sort of learn the charateristics of the animal I dream of and use it in my life. It works well
, but I still have somethings that have been puzzling me:I always thought that one had only one power animal /spirit guide?
Yet I keep having dreams about a new animal about every half year or so (I never dreamt twice about any animal). So far the following animals: meerkats, elephant, tiger, hummingbird, bear and lately a wild hog has "come" to me in dreams. Is it because my age, I'm 23, is my spirit animal maybe not "fixed" yet? Should I do something about it? like some sort of specific meditation or quest?
I meditate regularly and have had some dreams about the future that turned out to be accurate (an ability that kind of runs in my family). I wouldn't call myself a shaman because I really don't have that much knowledge about the subject (trying to learn though, hence this post). Are these animal dreams a sign that I have shamanic talents?
I would very much appreciate any input or advice on my situation.
