Animal Spirit

What is your Animal Spirit? This is an essential step in the journey to self-realization. While on vacation, a friend of ours and fellow Louper Kelly K. asked, "If you were an animal what would you be." Then we did what all people in 2018 do, consulted the internet. And, the results were staggering. I am a ... Hummingbird; certainly, not what I expected. A bear, maybe. A wolf, likely. A lion, possible. But no, a hummingbird! While I like to think I am very self-aware, this realization brought many nuanced insights. The hummingbird I've come to learn symbolizes joy and playfulness, as well as adaptability (ok, it sounds better.). Additional symbolic meanings are:

  • A lightness of being, enjoyment of life
  • Being more present
  • Independence
  • Bringing playfulness and joy in your life
  • Lifting up negativity
  • Swiftness, ability to respond quickly
  • Resiliency, being able to travel great distances tirelessly

This does sound like me, right Loupers? Who, dare I ask, are you?
