It is said by many shamans that we are assigned a power animal at birth and have many power animals that come and go throughout our lives. This can be due to trauma, neglect or a change in personal vibration which causes you to attract a new power animal.
Acquiring a power animal is an extremely important part of practicing shamanism and without the power animal the shaman would be unable to perform his or healing tasks. The shaman offers the power animal respect and honor in exchange for the guidance and assistance and protection the power animal gives. To meet and acquire your power animal first listen to a shamanic drumming track or have someone else drum for around ten – fifteen minutes before your shamanic journey.
