If you're one to easily connect with animals, then learning that animals can also be messengers and teachers for you is not a stretch.
Animals move naturally with the world around them and seem to instinctively know what's required to nurture and survive. Often, beloved pets like dogs and cats know when to nurture you (especially when you're feeling ill) or protect you if the environment is threatening.
When you accept that animals have a special connection to the Universe, then learning about the special spiritual messages they deliver to you offers you a whole other dimension in your life including awareness and healing.
Yes, animals are excellent teachers offering guidance when you may be feeling lost or searching for answers during your life journey. Messages from spirit animals hold ancient wisdom and they're ready and willing to share it with you the moment you're open to receiving it. They can appear to you through your dreams, meditations, as pets or simply keep reappearing to you in various ways in your life path. If you're open to the message, you're bound to learn.
