During these unique and challenging times, many feel that it’s selfish to be focusing on success.

But think about it for a minute. Is it really?

If you look at success as the dictionary definition — “The attainment of money, fame, material possessions, or power”– then yes, this might not be the time to just focus on those types of goals.

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner

But I think you and I would agree that in today’s world, that dictionary definition of success is as outdated as the BlackBerry at the bottom of your junk drawer.

Our society has begun to redefine success and for most, it’s no longer about just money or fame or outer achievement but must include contribution and inner fulfillment.

My dear friend, Debra Poneman is an international success expert and mentor to some of the most renowned transformational teachers of our time. In her acclaimed e-book The 5 Secrets to a Life of True Success, she offers a new paradigm of success and the simple steps to live it.

DOWNLOAD YOUR FREE EBOOK HERE

In her ebook Debra suggests (and research confirms) that the reason the old paradigm of success so often leads people to despair is the expectation that attaining goals will lead to fulfillment.

Although Debra is in no way averse to setting goals and making plans to achieve them, she believes that there’s an important component missing from that approach. In her ebook, she shares spiritual and energetic practices we can use to first create an unshakeable foundation on which to build our outer success. Then, whether or not we reach our goals, our self-love and inner silence never diminishes.

She also gives us tools and techniques to live our dharma as well as heart-warming, real-life stories that illustrate how engaging in sacred activism and opening to receiving love makes the manifestation of outer desires become effortless.

We particularly love the story about what the great spiritual teacher Maharishi Mahesh Yogi told Debra when she asked him why everyone else loved him more than she did.

Tens of thousands of people all over the world have used the formula Debra shares in her e-book to create lives of ultimate success.

“I’d become immune to e-books and their promises of changing my life, but I heard you on a podcast and loved what you had to say so I thought I’d just take a glance at your book. I just finished it and I am in tears. My heart has been burst wide open by the stories you share (especially the one about your son) and I am completely committed to following your steps to true and lasting success.” ~ Carolyn D., Chicago

“I read every word of your book and it was breathtaking!! Truly amazing. I’m inspired and filled with a sense of awe. It’s very clearly not just a thrown-together loss leader like so many. This is the best ebook I’ve ever read. And The New Success is definitely an idea whose time has come.” 
~ Shelly Lefkoe, Founder of the Lefkoe Institute

“Of all the teachers we have access to in our on-line world, one extraordinary woman stands out amongst the crowd. Master mentor Debra Poneman leads the way to continual inspiration. I’ve seen first-hand how the depth of her knowledge, the wealth of her wisdom, the vastness of her love, the breadth of her humor, and the contagiousness of her joy can and will inspire you to say YES to a life beyond what you can even now imagine. From the truest place in my heart, I encourage you to take advantage of anything she offers, including her profoundly life-changing ebook. Your life will never be the same.”
~ Katherine Woodward Thomas, NY Times Bestselling Author, Conscious Uncoupling and Calling in the One

“Over 30 years ago I first attended Debra’s Yes to Success seminar. I was completely blown away by her unique vision and practical tools for how every one of us can live our most cherished dreams — and by her powerful presence and radiant spirit. I ended up attending the seminar so many more times that I lost count and each time I gained new insights that impacted my life and allowed me to formulate The Passion Test. And now she’s taken the essence and put it in this e-book. What an incredible gift.”
~ Janet Attwood, Co-author NY Times Bestseller The Passion Test

The world needs you to live true success now so that you can have peace and happiness in your soul and BE the contribution you long to be. Debra’s beautiful e-book shows you how.

Debra Poneman Webinar Graphic - Debra on a Blue Background - Awakening Alchemy

When my dear friend and renowned success expert, Debra Poneman, made the decision to offer a training on how to live your ultimately successful life, she was immediately pounced on by many saying, “Is this really the time for you to be teaching people how to create a successful life?!?”

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner

Her answer: It depends on your definition of a successful life.

If success were only about the big house and the nice car, I’d agree that it would be insensitive to be teaching that, and not acknowledge that at this juncture in time, even though there’s nothing wrong with a big house and a nice car, we’re being called on to live a different kind of success.

The New Success is one that brings both deep inner joy and the sustained fulfillment and satisfaction you feel when you’re living your purpose for being here–and doing your part to contribute to a world that works for everyone.

That is true success.  And that’s what we all want.

And that’s what Debra is going to show you how to create during her LIVE 90-minute Deep Dive Training on June 16th titled The 5 Pillars to Living Your Ultimate Life.

In 1980 she was a flat broke, full-time meditation teacher.  By 1983 she was teaching success in every corner of the country and had reps teaching around the world.

Now, for almost 40 years Debra has taught tens of thousands of people how to create ultimate success.  Yes, her students have become millionaires, billionaires and even household names but she has always taught how to live the kind of success where…

~You wake up in the morning with fire in your belly and excitement in your heart about what you’re going to create today

~You’re guided at every moment by an inner voice as to how you can make a difference and be a contribution to making the world a more just and loving place

~You harness the power of the Universe so your life is in a much more effortless flow and the wind is always at your back

~You have absolute clarity about when to stay the course and when to let go and surrender to make way for your greater good

~You know how to spontaneously tap Into the Universal flow of grace for effortless manifestation of all your dreams

~ You experience deep unshakeable inner silence so that you can be an immovable lighthouse even in the midst of chaos.

And most importantly, when you look in the mirror, you love the person who’s looking back at you.

Yes!  Give me access to Debra’s FREE Deep-Dive Training:  The 5 Pillars for Your Ultimate Life

In this extraordinary Free Online LIVE ZOOM event, Debra will also take you through a powerful process that her students say has been indispensable in creating their ultimate lives.  She will also share:

~What the Ancient Mystical Texts say you need to do to face and overcome life’s biggest challenges

~How her daughter allowed her to see how much she really judges

Debra Poneman Head and Shoulders in a White Jacket - Awakening AlchemyYou’ll also hear a powerful story about a woman who left her exploding career and trajectory to superstardom to follow her heart (giving up, among other things, a contract for her own national TV show).  Everyone said she had gone out of her mind — and perhaps she had — you decide when you hear the story….

If you’re ready to live a life of true and lasting success with all the spiritual and material prosperity your heart yearns for, you’ll want to join Debra this Tuesday for The 5 Pillars to Your Ultimate Life.

Debra’s students include some of the most recognized names in the world of transformational leadership who attribute their monumental success to the practices she will be sharing in this webinar.  I guarantee you will experience a powerful life shift from joining her for this 90-minute interactive event.

Till Next Time, I’m Sending: Love, Phire, and the Violet Flame of Peace

Jill Hughes

P.S. During this Live Training, Debra will also open up the lines for live Q&A and laser coaching!  Bring your most pressing questions about creating true success and living your ultimate life.  Yes! I’d like to join you for this powerful LIVE Video event.

Continuing on with this fantastic series of FREE offers from the amazing Debra Poneman:

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner If you look in the dictionary for the definition of “success,” you’ll always find some variation on “the attainment of money, material possessions, fame or power.”

You and I both know that in the world we live in today, that definition of “success” is as outdated as the BlackBerry at the bottom of your junk drawer.

Our society has begun to redefine success and for most, it no longer has to do with money or fame or outer achievement.

Arianna Huffington said, in her 2016 book Thrive, that after interviewing some of the most successful people in the world, she determined that success is defined by what she calls The Third Metric, a measurement that goes beyond money and power and instead measures success by a deep sense of well-being, wisdom, true happiness, wonder, and of course, giving.

The great poet laureate, Maya Angelou who recently passed away at the age of 86 said this about success: “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”

I love each of these definitions and I agree that they all express essential components of living a successful life and I also love what my friend Debra Poneman says about success…

Debra Poneman Speaking at a Lecturn: All White Suit - Awakening AlchemyFor more than 40 years, Debra has helped people throughout the world uncover what true success is for them. Her students, from over 100 countries, have gone on to become mega-successful entrepreneurs, champions for charitable causes, powerful world-changers, New York Times best-selling authors, millionaires, billionaires—even household names.

But Debra says that true success is no longer based on outer achievement but on inner fulfillment. Success is about doing what lights you up. It’s about living aligned with your highest truth. It’s about contribution and what you are doing for the world.

And most importantly, it’s about being able to look in the mirror and love the person looking back at you.

For that kind of success, she says, you must first heal your heart. She tells you exactly how to do that in this powerful video.

Please give me access Debra’s FREE video Healing Your Heart

In this extraordinary video, Debra takes us through a powerful direct healing process and also shares:

  • The story of a woman whose husband and only son were murdered and how she was able to forgive the man who killed them
  • A technique to create an opening in your own heart so that all you desire (including profound love) can come through the door
  • The story of another woman who healed her relationship with her deceased father (after doing the process that Debra will lead us through)
  • What true success really is and how you can live it every day of your life

Debra also tells how, once she was able to live true success on the inside, she also effortlessly manifested a beautiful home on five acres, a new Mercedes (after years of driving a beat-up, 10-year-old Chevy BelAir her aunt had willed her when she died), and the relationship of her dreams….all by doing the opposite of what almost all success gurus tell you to do.

The challenges of life can be overwhelming, but if you think that obtaining something on the outside is going to pull you out of your pain and lead to fulfillment or any feelings of happiness, Debra says, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment…

But if you’re ready to live true success on the inside, overflowing with unconditional love for yourself and others, being a contribution to the planet outer success will become an effortless flow. Let Debra show you how in this important and inspiring video.

Debra Poneman - Free Video 2 - Debra on a Background of Purple Crystals - Awakening Alchemy

Today, we continue on with the series of videos and inspiration from the amazing Debra Poneman.

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner

When my dear friend and renowned success expert Debra Poneman was in her 20s, the only job she had ever had was teaching meditation.
When she was about to turn the big 3-0, she realized that “woman does not live by mantra alone” and it was time to “become an adult and have adult things like health insurance, car insurance and, perhaps, even a car to insure.”

So she left the meditation community where she was living and went out to seek her fortune (or at least get out of debt).

Debra Poneman Speaking at a Lecturn: All White Suit - Awakening AlchemyArmed with few marketable skills and driving a beat-up, 10-year-old Chevy BelAir that her aunt willed to her, she began studying the energetic and spiritual principles of creating true success expounded on by the ancient masters of metaphysics and modern “New Thought” gurus.

She diligently put the principles she learned to work, and, within less than a year, she had founded her Yes to Success seminar company. She was soon teaching the seminar to crowds in many major U.S. cities, had reps teaching in 7 countries on 4 continents, was appearing on TV and radio and in print from coast to coast, and had the first world’s first infomercial offering a self-improvement program broadcast in 22 markets.

Some of today’s most recognized names in the world of transformation were her students and attribute their inner and outer success to the principles they learned from Debra.

In her just released video Empower Your Mind, she shares what she (and her students) did to create monumental outer success based on deep inner fulfilment and exactly how you can do the same. She then tells the amazing story of how her near-death experience decades later substantiated the profound truth of what she had been teaching around the world.

Debra Poneman Head and Shoulders in a White Jacket - Awakening AlchemyShe also shares a technique from a book written in 1935 and issues a two-day challenge. If you make it through the two days, she guarantees your life will never be the same. (She’s taught this technique to tens of thousands of people over the past 40 years and has seen the life-altering results.)

If you’re ready to have a life where you stop blocking your dreams and instead harness your innate ability to tap into the energy of effortless manifestation and universal flow, then…

SAY YES TO SUCCESS!

Debra Poneman's Yes To Success Banner

Do you often wish that you could get your answers to the big questions in life straight from a source that is pretty much always reliable?

A source that you could turn to at any moment that would always steer you in the right direction for your greatest success and spiritual awakening…

A source that would give you answers even when things are tough and there just don’t seem to be answers…

If you are a big YES, then you’ll love this just released video from my dear friend Debra Poneman, founder of Yes to Success Seminars.

It’s called Align With Your Highest Truth, and it is particularly relevant at this time in our lives and in the world.

In this video, Debra gives you the tools to tap into the source of knowledge at will.

She takes you through a process where you have a direct experience that bypasses the rational, filtering mind and allows you to get the answers you’ve been seeking.

Debra Poneman Head and Shoulders in a White Jacket - Awakening Alchemy She also tells the story of running into one of her students 35 years after he took her seminar. During the chance meeting, he tells her that he had lost his business, was filing for bankruptcy, his wife had walked out, he had a life-threatening disease, and was severely depressed when he attended the seminar in the mid-80s and by doing this one exercise (the one Debra takes you through), it was revealed to him what was “off” in his life and what he needed to shift. The resulting experience blew Debra’s mind–or as she says in the video, “You could have knocked me over with a feather.”

Stop Ecocide Loge - Black on Green with Inverted Peace Sign - Awakening Alchemy Ecocide is the extensive damage to, the destruction of or loss of ecosystems of a given territory, by human agency to such an extent that peaceful enjoyment by the inhabitants of that territory has been or will be severely diminished- Polly Higgins the co-founder of a group by the same name ergo, STOP ECOCIDE, was a lawyer who sought to make ECOCIDE a crime.

Stop Ecocide Founder Polly Higgins Holding a Stop Ecocide Now Logo - Awakening alchemy

Polly Higgins – Stop Ecocide Now

This blog marks a few weeks and one year since the passing of Ecocides’ co-founder, visionary and legal pioneer the late Polly Higgins (1968-2019). My dear Year of Miracles college was a close friend of Polly’s and indeed Polly left her a much treasured motorbike in her will – awesome for the FREE SPIRITED this. Plans for any kind of live event have of course had to be cancelled due to COVID-19, but her team have put together some beautiful online content to celebrate and remember her. Below are two short video pieces created specially – enjoy and feel free to share:

Go Here on YouTube to Watch Polly on the origins of STOP ECOCIDE 

Also you can watch Polly Higgins: Greatness as a Legacy:

It was, of course, also Earth Day on 22nd April 2020, 50 years on from the first Earth Day in 1970. We are delighted to be contributing to several global Earth Day events – from Green Cross Netherlands’ video for the EarthX Conference, to a slot in the LiveHOPE Telefest, to a live talk from Jojo Mehta as part of the Pachamama Alliance’s Voices for the Earth Summit.

A couple of the ways to improve connection are:

1/ Food Intake and Buying Habits:

Making better choices, more locally sourced, avoid PALM OIL which is attributed to deforestation – e.g. of ancient rainforests and the demise of species such as Orangutang. Check how much forest was felled in Canada or where-ever for those Panic Loo rolls to wipe our botties and aim for recyclable or sustainably sourced versions. Plants- try growing your own:

  • My father was [an Industrial chemist so he knew what actually went into weed killers and fertilisers] – was an outstanding gardener, a prize winning dahlia grower and he only grew organic food, which my mum a bakers daughter and an excellent cook turned into delicious home-made meals.
  • Character Bio from Spirit of Prophecy, Sweetpea the Witch - Awakening Alchemy

    Sweetpea – From Spirit of Prophecy

    He had an allotment in Bingley, West Yorkshire, UK where he became friends with Sweetpea, a white witch, who ran the wrath of the all- male bastions of the Allotment Executive Committee who tried to oust her from the site – my father instigated and raised funds for her defence.

  • You can read about Sweetpea- a fictional character , of the same name here in my novel Spirit of Prophecy.
  • Sadly, my fathers gardening gene seems to have by-passed me – I tend to do the total neglect to death-by-drowning , however I am trying – and have a bit of help!! As you can see:
  • Around Plabts in the Garden - Awakening Alchemy A Blue Garden Shed - Awakening Alchemy

2/ Spend Time in Nature Connecting:

  • Take a walk, in nature, a rest [on a socially accepted bench-distance  – LOL]
  • Watch the trees, the flowers and feel gratitude for the infinite grace and certainty of the rolling seasons.
  • Take an Oracle walk – this is easy and yet SO powerful – check out how to – on my website:
  • Look into Heart Math a pioneering organisation who conduct amazing research looking at the magnetic resonance of our hearts, with highly informed results. They also arrange meditations individual ones such as THE DOVES IN FLIGHT:

HOPE: 

These are just a couple of suggestions, as we are remembering Polly and acknowledging all those who understand the importance of making ecocide a crime … as a bridge to the more beautiful world we all want to bring into being. For all of you on a spiritual path, you may believe as I do, that the Earth is Ascending from the physical 3rd Dimension through No-Time on the 4th Dimension to the 5th DIMENSION and as she attempts to throw off the considerable harm inflicted on her over the Eons, she needs our help now more than ever.

In hope and trust, Jill in conjunction with The Stop Ecocide team.

Here you’ll see the entire Earth, lit up with bright green dots which are local radio stations around the world – listen to music from around the globe – how awesome is that?

As we write this, many “first world” countries are in lockdown due to COVID-19.

Millions in the developing world have lived daily for decades with the fear of losing loved ones to disease (or hunger, or conflict) but this is not something wealthy nations are used to experiencing at once – and at all socio-economic levels – as we are witnessing now.

There is a lot of fear and overwhelm, and understandably so.

We are also seeing an emerging thirst for change.  Our electronic connectedness and access to information is, in our confinement, beginning to translate into wider human connection and the development of ideas.  There is a growing awareness that the response to this crisis must not shore up the life-destroying structures that have failed.

Coronovirus: Nature is Sending Us a Message, says U.N. Environment Chief:

The Guardian Headline - A Solitary Tree Stands on Wasteland - Awakening Alchemy

 

The UN’s environment chief has called COVID-19 “a clear warning shot” from nature, explaining that pandemics could become more frequent if we return to destructive business-as-usual, because exploitation and destruction of natural habitats and ecosystems upset nature’s balance.

Indeed, the climate and ecological crisis already unfolding is the direct result of such disturbance and damage – ECOCIDE – sustained over decades.  

Ecocide Law – A Powerful Offering:

At moments like this, the previously politically impossible can become possible. As political writer Naomi Klein and other health and environmental experts highlight, that can cut both ways: towards increased control of citizens and deregulation of industry, or towards greater responsibility and support for people and planet.

Ecocide law is thus a powerful offering right now – an essential part of the discussion on how NOT to return to destructive business-as-usual.

Crisis, coraje y cuidados

Querido/a amigo/a

Mientras escribimos esto, muchos países del “primer mundo” están en confinamiento  debido al COVID-19.

Durante décadas, millones de personas en los países en vías de desarrollo han estado viviendo diariamente con el miedo a perder a sus seres queridos a causa de las enfermedades (o el hambre o los conflictos armados) pero esto no es algo a lo que los países ricos estén acostumbrados a experimentar de golpe – y en todos los niveles socioeconómicos –  tal como lo estamos presenciando en estos momentos.

Hay mucho miedo y angustia, lo cual es totalmente comprensible.

Pero también estamos observando una emergente sed por el cambio.  Dentro de nuestro confinamiento, nuestra conectividad electrónica y el acceso a la información  han  empezado a traducirse en una conexión humana más amplia y en el desarrollo de ideas. Hay una creciente conciencia de que la respuesta a esta crisis no debe apoyar a las estructuras que destruyen la vida y que nos han fallado.

El jefe del Medio ambiente en la ONU: “La naturaleza nos está enviando un mensaje”

El jefe de Medio ambiente de las Naciones Unidas ha llamado al COVID-19  “un claro disparo de advertencia” de la naturaleza, explicando que las pandemias podrían volverse más frecuentes si volvemos a la actividad destructiva de costumbre, porque la explotación y destrucción de los ecosistemas y hábitats naturales altera el equilibrio de la naturaleza.

De hecho, las crisis climática y ecológica que están teniendo lugar son el resultado directo de tales perturbaciones y daños – el ECOCIDIO – realizados durante décadas.

La ley del Ecocidio: una oferta potente

En momentos como éste, lo que anteriormente era políticamente imposible se puede volver posible. Tal y como la escritora política Naomi Klein y otros expertos en salud y medio ambiente  recalcan, esto puede ser un arma de doble filo: significar un mayor control sobre los ciudadanos y la desregularización de la industria, o bien una mayor responsabilidad y apoyo hacia las personas y el planeta.

De esta manera y justo ahora, la Ley del Ecocidio se ha convertido en una potente oferta: es una parte esencial del debate sobre cómo NO regresar a las maneras destructivas ‘de costumbre’.

Free Tiger on a Power Animals Banner - Awakening Alchemy

Graphic Showing Twisted Universe - Awakening Alchemy As you know, this blog series is broadly titled Awakening Alchemy. It is our hope that some of the topics we cover in this blog may awaken the inherent spiritual side that resides in all of us. Our goal is to open your mind to the incredible possibilities that are happening all around us, right now, on planet Earth. The old, tired paradigms are being swept away, as science and especially quantum physics, begins to illuminate the true nature of matter, of consciousness and of spirit. Many of the old philosophies, and beliefs are again coming to the fore, as science begins to show us there is much more to this Universe than that which we can see, feel and touch. We are celestial beings that harbor greatness inside of each and every one of us. It is my dharma to spark some of that interest, excitement and questioning nature within the readers of this blog.

Today we will be exploring an old, traditional, tribal belief of Shamanic origin, known as “Power Animals”

What Are Power Animals:

Broadly speaking a power animal is a concept that has come down to us from Shamanistic teachings and worship. Shamanism is a practice that evolved in Asia, especially Mongolia and Siberia and over time spread to North and South America, as well as parts of Africa. Shamanism involves reaching an altered state of consciousness (often using natural hallucinogens, meditation, and ritual chanting) that allows the Shaman to interact with the spirit world and then channel these spirits and energies into the physical world.

Shaman Dancing Around Fire - Awakening Alchemy For most of us westerners, the idea of Shamanism is perhaps that which we have had portrayed to us on the silver screen, as the idea of “medicine men”, especially as it relates to the early Native American tribes. Essentially this is true, and shamanism is still practiced routinely, and ritually in many places, especially in the Northern Asian areas of Mongolia and Siberia.

The concept of the power animal is one that is Universal across many cultures. You can perhaps think of power animals as being spirit guides that help protect us as individuals but also our ancestral lineage and that which is still to come, as well as nations, as a whole.  

To the Shaman, everything is alive and connected to us. Everything contains a unique wisdom, power and virtue. Power Animals are said to embody our individual qualities of character, morality, and our most personal inner thoughts and being. We all have experienced the love and bonding that we can create and nurture with living animals (see last week’s blog on Animal Communication: )

What shamanism teaches us is that we can have the same deep love, bonding and respect, on a higher consciousness level, with our power animals. Shamanism contends that every person has a power animal(s) inside of them. They act as protectors to us and guard us against illness as well as imparting some of their inherent skills and wisdom to us. For example, the Hawk spirit will lend you some of the skills and wisdom of the hawk.

Different Types of Power Animals:

Frontal Picture of Owl on Branch - Awakening Alchemy There are absolutely no set rules as to what animals can be power animals. They certainly don’t have to be mammals and can just as easily be reptiles, insects, birds, or sea creatures. If it lives, then it can be a power animal. In this vein, even plants and trees can serve as spirit guides. One thing to note, however, domesticated animals are generally not considered to be power animals because they are already acting in service to mankind. What the experts say is that you should always keep an open mind when looking at power animals. Try not to associate or “lock in” certain characteristics to an animal e.g. Lion is fierce and courageous. All animals have attributes that we, as humans, may not even be aware of until we bond, communicate and share with them.

What is truly important is that we honour and value our power animals. In the Western-Judaic culture we have been taught that animals were put here for our exclusive use and that we have dominion over them. This is an attitude we must let go of. Animals are at least our equals, add greatly to our lives and the world around us, have gifts to offer us and are deserving of gratitude, love and respect. Think of it this way – your power animal is giving up his/her independence and mobility to spend its time with you. It is a selfless act and by your honouring and valuing that act, the connection you have with your power animal can only deepen and grow.

China Collectible Leopard Knick Knack - Awakening Alchemy A couple of ways of honouring your power animal are to regularly thank him/her for being there and to have objects (knick-knacks) where you can see them every day that represent your power animal. This all shows that you care and can only deepen the bond. As in shamanic practice we need to get into the habit of honouring and valuing all things in our life – they all have something to teach us and power animals, especially, have a wealth of knowledge and wisdom to impart to us.

How Do I Discover My Power Animal(s)

The most important thing to bear in mind in the process is: You don’t choose your power animal – it chooses you!

  • One way to do this is to consult a Shaman, but for the vast majority of us that would be difficult, time-consuming and possibly expensive (if you had to travel).
  • The best way to discover your power animal is to receive the information in a dream. See what happens! Go to sleep thinking about your power animals and you never know what you will dream about.
  • Woamn Meditating Outside on a Rock - Awakening Alchemy Meditate to discover what your power animal is. If you don’t practice meditation, check out my previous blog on Meditation to learn how to get started: 
  • Journey deep into the forest, the ocean, the desert, in your mind. Sit in a quiet place, breathe deeply in and out an observe the animals that come your way – one of them will almost certainly become more apparent to you than the others and will choose you.
  • Ask, out loud, for your power animal to show itself. If you suddenly begin seeing one particular animal more frequently than others that could be a sign. As an example, let’s say you are flipping through TV channels and you consistently come across documentaries on Lions; you see a sign advertising the local Lions club chapter; your friend invites you around to watch the Lion’s rugby team playing on TV. By using repetition, the power animal is drawing your attention to him/her.
  • Search the internet for surveys and quizzes that can help pinpoint your power animal. There are a host of resources available on the internet for this purpose. Just type in: “how do I discover my power animal?” and you’ll be amazed at what pops up.

 Some Common Power Animals and their Attributes:

  1. Deer: Deer are symbolic of love and harmony within oneself. They are also incredibly timid creatures and may signal the need for your protection from predators.
  2. Spider: The spider is very representative of the feminine side of us and the power of feminine energy. Their intricate webs and patience tell us how our lives are interweaved with others. Spiders are also very common power animals for creative people, as evidenced by the beauty and intricacy of their webs. They remind us that everything takes time and it is the journey that is magical, not the result.
  3. Black and White Butterfly - Awakening AlchemyButterfly: A butterfly symbolises more than any other creature the idea of profound change and transformation. As you are moving through different cycles of your life, especially “making a fresh start” the butterfly is the perfect spirit guide / power animal for you. Another intrinsic characteristic of the butterfly is its lightness and its ability to transcend the earth and the more prosaic things of life.
  4. Horse: The horse represents the driving force of life, the ability to run free, wild and untamed. In the same way, horses can be domesticated, restrained and stopped from their complete enjoyment of life – just like us.
  5. Crow: The crow is a double-edged sword, offering both positive and negative characteristics. Whilst on the one hand, it symbolizes the magic of life, intelligence and fearlessness, it can also represent a trickster, a manipulator, or those of a mischievous nature.
  6. Hawk: Hawks represent courage, truth, perspective and self-awareness. They offer the ability to see things from a higher perspective and to recognise truth. It also represents intuition and inner wisdom. Having a hawk as your power animal is an indication that it is time to re-evaluate your life, to look at the broader picture, from a higher perspective. Use the hawk’s keen vision to view your life and then its intuition and inner wisdom to guide you.
  7. Lion: The Lion is the symbol of extreme strength, self-assertiveness and power. They bring you strength, courage, authority and assertiveness, while still pointing out dangers and weak spots in your life.
  8. Closeup Photo of a Grasshopper - Awakening AlchemyGrasshopper: Grasshoppers symbolise that it is time to take a leap of faith. They are innovative and never miss an opportunity to move forward in life. They’re also considered to be good luck and a good omen. If you’re struggling with a decision that needs to be made, the grasshopper is a good animal to have by your side.  

Well, there are just a few of the possible power animals you could have in your life. Remember a couple of points. Firstly, you can have as many power animals in your life as you need, at any particular time, and secondly your power animal can change over time, as your circumstances and needs also change.
