What is a Spirit Animal Painting?

Katelyn Mariah, Visionary Artist, will connect with your higher wisdom and find your animal guide. She will paint a beautiful 12 x 12  watercolor of the animal that you can work with, to learn more about yourself And give you a word to work with.


Your spirit animal often represents qualities and attributes that you may see in yourself. On a base level, you want to understand the general vibe of the animal and look at it as an archetypal figure in your life; a symbolic representation of you. You may never personally interact with your animal, like a tiger or whale. But pay attention to the details like specific behaviors, character traits, habitat, diet, social status. Are you group-oriented, a loner, nomadic, sedentary, etc.?


In shamanism, an animal guide is meant to be a representation of the traits and skills that you are supposed to learn, acquire, or embody. Animal Guides have been used in shamanistic practice throughout human history. Hunters and warriors from ancient civilizations would depict their prey on walls during ceremonies to bless and ensure a plentiful hunt and to acknowledge, bless, and thank the spirit of the animal being sacrificed. Ancient tribes, religions, and spiritual traditions have all in some form embedded animal symbolism into their practices.
