Spirit Animals

Spirit Animals

There was an interesting video that made the rounds on the Internet called “The Hot Crazy Matrix” and it’s a dating guide for men.

I’m writing my own version for women: “A Single Girl’s Guide To Mastering The Unicorn Zone.”

It’s a guide to get to know who you are, not a guide to change who you are.

If you don’t know who you are or have insight into your personality, projection, rapport, wants & needs, or sexuality, how can you find ANYONE to date, love, like, be with?

I have friends with very little insight into who they are and what others see – They think they are definitely something or someone else, and this inconsistency is a woman’s “crazy.”

What do spirit animals have to do with dating, the “Hot Crazy Matrix,” and getting to know yourself?

Let’s first learn what a spirit animal is.

A spirit animal is meant to be a representation of the traits and skills that you are supposed to have or need to learn.

You have life spirit animals who are with you always, and you also have mythical spirit animals who come and go during the course of your life.

My daughter and I were talking about spirit animals when we saw the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy while at Disneyland.

In her earlier years, during her awkward stages of life and development, her spirit animal was Eeyore from Winnie The Pooh.


Now that she has become a full-fledged woman with all kinds of personality, she has developed a strong sense of self – and we have a solid bond of friendship and camaraderie.

 And we both noted that Rocket, the gun-toting, snarky, militant space racoon, is her spirit animal.

Here is a representative scene of Rocket’s unique spunk. It is the scene where the group is deciding to go into battle, and each member stands up and voices his/her agreement to take up the charge in the face of death. They all turn and look at Rocket who is sitting.

He says: “Aww, what the hell, I don’t got that long a lifespan anyway.” 

Then he stands up and says, “Well now I’m standing. Happy? We’re all standing now. Bunch of jackasses, standing in a circle.”


Yes, that’s my daughter.

I was so happy that she was able to determine her true spirit animal…and that it had been upgraded from Eeyore to Rocket.


I decided to seek some assistance in this realm and took some quizzes and did some research to discover my life spirit animals are the hawk and the butterfly – and my mythical spirit animal is the unicorn.

Hawk: The hawk’s powers include communicating with the divine, discerning powers in others, and having photographic memory. Hawks are the messengers of the Spirits.



 Adept with language, you might be a writer or a teacher. Your ability to assess situations impartially means that people often seek your guidance before making decisions. A brilliant visionary, you sometimes forget the mundane details of life like eating, sleeping, or paying bills.


The hawk provides wisdom about seeing situations from a higher perspective, using the power of observation, and focusing on the task at hand. It’s a good companion to develop spiritual awareness.


When you have the hawk as a spirit animal, you may have a natural inclination to receive visions, either in dreams or awake. Your extra sensory abilities and intuition are supported by the power of this animal. You may have an inclination towards using the power of vision and intuition in your daily life.


Butterfly: The butterfly symbolizes personal transformation, lightness of being, and playfulness.


If you see the butterfly as your spirit animal, pay attention to the areas in your life or personality that are in need of profound change or transformation.


An important message carried by the spirit of the butterfly is about the ability to go through important changes with joy, grace and lightness.


Unicorn: The unicorn is a magical animal, not bound by earthly form, releasing the fear of vulnerability by standing in the power of one’s uniqueness.



You are the stuff of dreams — beautiful, athletic, alluring, just a touch Bohemian and more than slightly dangerous. Friends, family, co-workers, they all find you hard to resist once you turn on the charm.


The unicorn power animal has many positive characteristics including astonishing powers of perception way beyond the limited senses of the material realm.


The unicorn possesses instinctive and emotional understanding. The unicorn has the ability to restore broken spirits, helps you develop personal power that can be unlimited, is powerful itself and yet at the same time, very gentle.


The spiral horn of the Unicorn can heal and neutralize poisons; therefore, the unicorn spirit can also help its people develop their own healing abilities.



That is spooky accurate.

I would love to hear from YOU ~
