July Blog All About It Challenge - Spirit

So I totally missed June's prompt but you know how my June went.  So I decided to pick myself up and dive back in.  Although I won't lie - it bums me that I missed June.  

Blog All About It is a challenge being hosted by Anna@Herding Cats and Burning Soup.  Each month we are given a prompt and have free reign regarding what we chose to blog about pertaining to that prompt. May's prompt is........................


I have to admit I was a little stumped on this one but I immediately thought of spirit animals so I found an on-line quiz HERE and decided hey, why not?

So apparently my spirit animal is a DEER.  

When you have the deer as spirit animal, you are highly sensitive and have a strong intuition. By affinity with this animal, you have the power to deal with challenges with grace. You master the art of being both determined and gentle in your approach.
The deer totem wisdom imparts those with a special connection with this animal with the ability to be vigilant, move quickly, and trust their instincts to get out the trickiest situations.

The deer’s antlers can grow back once they fall. Because of this characteristic, this animal has been revered in many traditions as a symbol of life regeneration. There’s a cloud of mystery around this ability that gives the deer a magical and mystical quality. If you have the deer as power animal, you could tap into life’s magical ability to renew itself.
If the deer has chosen you as your spirit or totem animal, you may be called to use or develop your sensitivity at various levels in your life. This animal powers guide you to refine your intuition and psychic abilities. You can refine your receptivity and use your senses and intuition to reach farther out.
Those with the deer as animal totem may be inclined to be constantly on the move, being on the look out for the next opportunity. By affinity with this spirit animal, you may also be watchful of your “predators”, which translate into a tendency to be sometimes overly cautious. It takes time for you to trust someone or feel safe in your environment.
You can invoke the power of the deer to guide you in getting accustomed to new surroundings and people. This spirit guide might show up in your life to warn you encourage you to trust your instinct. The deer spirit animal will also show up in your life to encourage you to take some time by yourself in a quiet environment to rest or in nature. It invites you to find rest and peace in silence.

So I've always found this type of stuff interesting and I would say for the most part, it does kind of sum me up.  However, I'd rather be a dog :)

So if you take the quiz, make sure you leave in the comments what your animal spirit is and if you think it suits you.  


  1. I just did this quiz and I was so pumped but then I got snake and now I'm very sad lol I HATE snakes!!! Fun post though!

    1. Okay, I'd have probably deleted the whole post and started over if I had gotten snake - I hate them too!

  2. Ok I ALWAYS have to take these quizzes when I see them! I got the owl, which apparently means I have wisdom and intuitive knowledge. I'll just go with that. :)

  3. I reckon I'd have to be a wolf! I've always felt kind of wolfie!

  4. I think my spirit animal should be a dragon - because it's also my Chinese birth year.
    Lynn :D

  5. Not too sure how accurate that quiz is. I got the owl. LOL

  6. I was thinking that your spirit animal would really have to be a Boxer :)
