Spirit Animals and You

Spirit Animals and You

April 22, 2019

Spirit animals, like Zodiac signs and similar superstitions, have been a major part of people’s lives since the Native Americans called this land home. They believed that their animals had a deep-rooted connection with their past, present and future. While that link with nature may have been dampened since those ages, people can still find a tie with certain animals today.
