When you meet an animal on your journey, always ask if it is your power animal. If it is not it is an animal messenger. An animal messenger is one who comes to inform you of your current energy and things going on in your life currently.
This journey is all about your power and your power animal represents you in your power. Sometimes your power animal has reasons for not telling you and it may take time for them to reveal themselves, so just be patient. When the time is right they will show themselves.
Any animal that comes in while you are journeying, is an animal messenger and always has a strong message for you. Take note of its message and read about its symbolism in the "Animal Symbolism" book that you would have downloaded from your first lesson.
Remember as well, in real life when you see an animal cross your path, stand and stare at you in the distance, or even scare you by suddenly appearing, this has a symbolic message for you. Find this animal in your copy of "Animal Symbolism" and read what the universe is trying to let you know. Start taking notice of all the messages around you and you will see how the universe is supporting you.
ANTEATER Stay Centered The anteater may be symbolically asking you to bring your energy back to your body. Be grounded to be strong. Be present in your centre and in your body so it can share all its sensory information with you. When you are present, you are receiving all the universes information in one place. Your centre is a point in your body between your heart and stomach. When you are present at this point, all information lands here. You do not have to run around your mind to find it. All your senses, including your psychic senses can inform you. Anteater asks you to bring your attention back to your mind, like eating one ant at a time. Return from any place that is not here and from all those others you continually worry about. Be present with your body . From this place you are most powerful because the universe will answer any question you have. Whether it is a yes or no about a situation, or a wait and see feeling. A “yes” expands this area, a “no” contracts this area, a “wait and see” or, “it doesn't really matter” has no distinct feeling. Anteater says stop spreading your energy so widely, you cannot help others by worrying. Be present. Know you are supported and protected in all ways.
ANT Strength Ant is a wonderful symbol of persistence and patience. Nothing succeeds like persistence and ant will show you this. Sometimes you just need to keep at it, one step at a time. It's the only way to build anything and takes persistence, patience and teamwork. Ant says your greatest strength right now is persistence, keep going, you need to just keep furloughing ahead, not at a rush but at the perfect pace for you. Keep building your pile and it will amount to something. Ant is saying perhaps patience is not your strong point right now, so he comes to remind you that a house is built one brick at a time, rush it and it will fall down, it needs to be done properly. Have the patience to do each step properly with the right amount of attention and focus and your project will come to fruition perfectly in the right time. Keep going even if it feels hard and slow. An Ant can also carry its body strength, Ant reminds you that you can and are capable of carrying a lot, just remember to put it down if it's not yours and know that you have great strength.

DOG Loyalty Dog reminds us that it is better to be kind than criticize. Be gentle with those around you and accept that everyone’s path is unique to them. He also says be loyal and truthful to yourself. Be your own best friend first. When you love and nurture yourself you are much happier and have more energy to share with others. By having self respect and self value, you are being true to who you really are. When you love yourself first you bring your best self to this world. When you show up with your best self, the world cannot help but love and respect you too. Occasionally dog symbolism can represent confusion about your loyalties, beliefs, and commitments. In other words, when you try to be everything for everyone, you end up losing sight of yourself. The only way to resolve this is to put yourself first and foremost. Thus, by letting go of the need to please everyone and everything else, you will be able to piece together what is right for you. In fact, only with loyalty to yourself will you be able to grow and move forward. It reminds me of the aeroplane emergency plan, you need to put on your own oxygen before you can assist another.

They will find their own solutions. It will be presented to them. We often feel better after speaking our grievances, allow friends to vent to you and have faith that they are large enough souls to find the solution to their lives. Never feel sorry for anyone for we all learn from life experience, the good bad and ugly. It's through some of the hardest life experiences that makes the most beautiful souls that change this crazy world.

RAT Restlessness It is said that when a ship is about to sink rats will run up to the highest point even before there is danger. Rats have an instinctive ability to know when things are going wrong and will evacuate a threatened area long before they are proven right. It is said they will survive a holocaust, because they sense danger and take precautionary action. They are survivors and will do what it takes to ensure their endurance. Rat dreaming offers warning of what evasive action should be taken, and when and how. Rat asks in relationships, that you act and voice your concerns the moment you feel unsettled. Instead of suppressing your feelings in hope that things will miraculously sort themselves out. Rat dreaming helps you determine if your interest would be better served by staying aboard in an attempt to work things out, or by devising an escape route.

SEAL Inner voice Seal is about our inner voice and the calling to know ourselves. For what is within us is what we will attract in the outside world. Seal asks us to become aware of your own personal rhythms, how your energy likes to move and flow, if you work in short bursts before you need a break or are you better at long distance runs. Know when you feel anxious or when you are excited. There are many people that think their chest is sore, when they actually are heart broken. What does your intuition tell you, it is that still small voice that talks to you when you are making decisions, the more you listen the louder it comes. What does your gut tell you about your decisions, do you listen or do you deny it. Seal asks that you listen with your heart for that is how you will find your true soulmate. It's about finding a balance between sensuality and sensitivity, knowing the body mind as well as the soul song. What is attraction on all levels, it is a connection of the body, mind and the soul. Our body mind carries all our life experience as well as all that of our ancestors. Our knowledge is actually thousands of years of evolution as well as our soul purpose. Seal reminds you that what you feel inside is what you attract. The more conscious you become of who you are the more honest open and loving your relationship will be. The more you love and accept yourself for who you truly are the more you will be loved for who you truly are. So know yourself, on all levels, body, mind and soul, and listen to your heart when it comes to love, you are the only one who truly knows what your being yearns for
