As you know if you’ve been reading Wisdom and Life wolves have always been a powerful symbol for me.  I’ve considered them my shamanic animal for almost the entirety of my life.  I share so many qualities with the wolf:
–Wolf Medicine tells you that slow and steady gets the prize.
–Wolf brings with him a strong sense of faithfulness, inner strength and intuition.
–The Wolf has excellent hearing sensitivity, and is a reminder that you should listen to others, especially those closest to you; but also to yourself your most inner thoughts and words. This will strengthen and enhance your own intuition and discernment.


I’ve always identified with the wolf for the above reasons and many others.  Their soulful howl creates gooseflesh on every pore of my skin.  Seeing them in a pack is an awesome image.

I was born in August under the zodiac sign of Leo the Lion; because of that I’ve recently become more aware of the Lion in my worldview.  I’ve been researching the similarities of both animals as I sometimes do when I find a new interest.  I’ve found many traits wolves and lions share.  According to What’s Your Sign the symbolic meaning for lions include:


–and several others

Do you see the common traits between these two magnificent animals?
–Both are loyal.
–Both have power but only use it when needed.
–Both share all the traits listed above.


Wolves and Lions


Since studying Shamanic Animals for sometime I’ve been under the false assumption that our animals must remain static, that we can ONLY have one animal guide us through our entire lives.  I now understand that multiple animals can guide us.  I do however believe that if another animal will arrive in our lives both animals must share similar traits.


The wolf and the lion both share traits as I listed above so I guess it shouldn’t be such a surprise that both animals resonate with me.  For those of you who study this subject, have any of you noticed a particular animal in your life?  Then at some point seen another animal enter as well?


I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!

Blessings to you.
