Animal, Birds and Insects Symbolism
When an insect, bird or animal acts unusual around you – for example, lands on you or visits more than 3 times – it means that they have a message for you. These creatures are messengers of the spirit world, delivering guidance and news from deceased loved ones, angels and spirit guides.
Spirits can also come in animal form to help us heal and pass on guidance. When this happens, they are called animal spirit guides or spirit animals. In shamanic cultures they are known as totem animals or power animals.
