Mind & Spirit | 2 December 2016Creating a Spirit Animal Journal Share article facebook twitter google pinterest There are many reasons keeping a spirit animal journal can be beneficial. Memories of dreams and meditative experiences can quickly fade, but if you write them down, you can keep them safe. Keeping a journal can also help you make sense of clues from these encounters. Here are some things to keep in your journal from The Key to Spirit Animals. Note It Record everything! What happened? Which animals appeared? What were their actions? What about their demeanor? Note your feelings, thoughts, and questions—as well as anything puzzling, unusual, or nonsensical—for further exploration. Draw It Sketch animal expressions, postures, or gestures for quicker recall. Draw a map if traveling was involved or to indicate position or movement of characters within a scene. Sometimes a picture truly is worth a thousand words. Date It Include the year, month, day, hour, and minute. Time notation can sometimes provide a valuable clue, especially when exploring larger patterns and ongoing themes. Title It Titles offer quick reference and stimulate recall. Choose distinct, intriguing headings that will prompt your memory. (Examples from my journal: “Two Snakes in a Cold Car,” “The Golden Butterflies,” “Dancing with the Polar Bear.”) Supplement It If desired, include research about the animals you encounter. For example, you might note their physical attributes, habits in nature, or totemic qualities and teachings. Summarize It Though not essential, a one-sentence summary can help to spur your memory and is a good exercise in identifying key points.
