I always wondered why I had never resonated with just one spirit animal and in that moment I realized it was because we all have many animal guides. Some spirit animals come into your life to guide you through a certain phase or specific situation, just like spirit guides, and then leave once their goal is accomplished. Others are with you since birth and never leave, Animal Chakra Guardians are a part of this category. The Hindus and Native Americans believe in this and assigned a specific guide to each chakra, for example the root chakra Hindu guide is an elephant and the root chakra Native American guide is a snake. There is an animal assigned to each chakra, however unlike the Hindu and Native American’s beliefs, the animals that are assigned to each chakra varies from person to person.
