The place where I live accommodates a riding stable and many horse friends. On the meadows around the village horses often graze on small parcels of land. Riders usually walk their animals slowly. Speed and endurance, these great qualities of the horses are hardly visible anymore. Grazing horses can look idyllic, but their movement potential is limited or degenerated. The strength of the horses, which is paired with skill and endurance in movement, is in a negative balance with the domestic horse, which is kept for leisure purposes. Read More
Bison is the central animal of the vast landscapes of the original America, of great speed and strength. He was the highly respected animal of indigenous Indians and gave the ancient Prairie tribes everything they needed to live. Thus the bison or buffalo was associated with the experience of being well supplied. The hoofbeats of a galloping herd of buffalo make the distance swing like the fur of a beaten drum. The buffalo is sacred, coming from the sun, equipped with their heat. Fiery is its element, it purifies your heart, that you recognize yourself related to all life. The challenge is to act responsibly and sustainably, in the interests of the environment, people and animals.
Crested Porcupine, Hystrix cristata
The porcupine is peaceful and full of confidence in his world of experience. Within the animal energies of the root chakra, the porcupine acts as a playful force that can unfold because there is no fear. Because the ability to defend oneself always carries it with it. The spines are his survival tool. They resemble long horny hair, which are provided with very small barbs. They can easily penetrate any enemy. However, it is difficult to remove them again, so there is a high probability that the wound will become inflamed. Read More
Pig-tailed Langur, Simias concolor
In the early summer of 2017 I met a young man. In his facial expressions and his physical expressiveness I immediately noticed a Spirit Animal monkey. As I have already said elsewhere, communication with an Spirit Animal does not take place in the words provided by thinking. It requires an inner silence for me in which the reception of subtle impulses and their insightful translation becomes possible.
Habitat: Mentawei Islands off the west coast of Sumatra
Tristan Albatross, Diomedea dabbenena
Eight years ago, I met the Spirit Animal Albatross with a young woman. She had been injured by events in her childhood, in her trust in life and her ability to relate. She was ready to dream, to go into states that made her forget her mental injuries. On the other hand, she was gifted in getting in touch with people who brought her traumatic memories back to life. Sometimes she lived for days on the streets, with or without drugs, in a state of intoxication, surrounded by youth and feelings of eternity. For albatrosses it is exhausting to take up the flight and also to land again, but in their dynamic gliding they are carried by an endurance, by a special ability to take it up also with the very stormy weather conditions. The young woman maneuvered herself through difficult experiences and emotions. I experienced her determined to master her life. Read More
Araneus diadematus. Cross Spider.
Something new has entered my life. It has begun as something of which I already suspected that it will belong in my life. But it is still hanging by a silken thread, only the first steps have been taken. I remember the nets of the diligent spinners who, wetted by the early morning dew, sparkled in my garden last autumn. The nets of the orb weaver spiders floated mystically and elegantly between the autumnal branches. Spirit Animal Spider I associate with the ancient woman who invented the destinies of mankind, with incessant shaping power. Read More

Hirundo rustica. Barn swallow
A delicate energy and subtle perception is associated with the barn swallow. It reaffirms the sensitivity, as an ethereal quality, so that the many small things of everyday life can express themselves elated.
The Sanskrit scholar Sir John Woodroffe, lectured under the pseudonym Arthur Avalon in his book “The Serpent Power” (Arthur Avalon, The Serpent Power, 1918/ published in German translation with the title “Die Schlangenkraft”, Otto Wilhelm Barth Verlag, first published in 1961, here 7th edition 2003, quote: p.17, p.222), in great detail about the Indian chakras. The lotus centers are strung together like on a ribbon. The chakras symbolize the energy flow along the spine. On each of the petals there is a Sanskrit character, in its inner circle different geometries are represented, like square, triangle and six star and animals and gods are also shown on it. Read More
I came into contact with chakras in 1977 during my first yoga course. When I turned to the spirit animal theme in 1995, I had already become familiar with the chakras within yoga and meditation practice in detail, in theory and practice. In my reflections on the individual spirit animals, it was always natural for me to perceive their relationship to the energy centers, the chakras. Read More
James’ Flamingo. Phoenicoparrus jamesi
In the high altitudes of the Andes, the flamingo colonies give the low vegetation landscape on the salt water lakes a brilliant play of colours. The James’ Flamingo is the smaller species of South American flamingo. He lives exclusively in the Andes, only from an altitude of 2000m. The beak of the James’ Flamingo is bright yellow and as with all flaming species occupied with the contrasting black end. The type of beak itself, whereby the flamingos catch the planktonic algae and small crabs by filtration, is unique in the bird world. The feathers of the flamingos only turn red when they eat this special food and the colour intensity and type of colouring is different for each of the flamingo species and remains only temporary. The James’ Flamingo is rather overall white, a little pink at the head, in addition it carries a red triangle under the wings and its decorative feathers are mostly streaked by strong red. Read More
The diversity of the animal world can be perceived in physical form through thousands of animal species. Each animal species presents a special behavior and traits that shape spiritual life energies. Nevertheless, it is a daring step into the invisible to imagine or to feel that an animal spirit exists within one’s own personality. You land in the world of spirits without any ifs or buts. Perhaps you weigh in your thoughts that the spirit world belongs to you as much as your material circumstances. This is a meaningful starting point to take up the trace of your own spirit animal.
It is about your own intuition
There is already a connection between you and your spirit animal. You cannot choose it for yourself. It is less a search, more a deep recognition about which animal species pulsates in your sensory world. This extremely subtle perception cannot be brought about deliberately and many people cannot access the subtle perception. What would the world of spirits be if it showed itself to everyone? It is about developing your own feeling for the subtle energies that unconsciously shape the feeling of your own identity.
It is about the intimate relationship
You can invite a helping power animal with a request to support you in certain qualities and sensations. No matter with which animal species or animal type you go into a conscious power animal connection, it is important that you become familiar with this power animal and find an intimate relationship. Your compassionate abilities and subtle perceptions, also your intuition power will be able to unfold in this friendship. But not as you want and think, but completely without plan and intuitively. Helping power animals and personal spirit animals will have no direct effect on your material success in life. They belong to the subtle spiritual world of experience and also unfold their powers there.
You can address me to your personal spirit animal. Write an e-mail.
Ermine. Mustela erminea
It is the symbol for the ten-petalled Solar Plexus Charka, which can be seen in the middle of the picture. It is the chakra in which the ability to act and one’s own power manifest themselves. The ermine is a cave dweller. As a spirit animal he enters the unconscious realms of your personality. He is nimble, equipped with an unerring sense of smell and stalking intellect. He loves espionage in the enemy camps of your personality shares and finds out what undermines your ability to act and self power. The ermine is a skilled information hunter and serves you wholeheartedly for the good cause of your personality development.
