The Collective Witchery
Spirit animals represent our spiritual guides. They can be presented to us in many different ways. Pay attention to the animals you happen to meet in nature and in your everyday life. It can be in a movie, in your dreams, in an image on social media, in a book, or even through conversations with friends. You don’t meet certain animals by accident.
Our spirit animals will find a way to reach us, but we must be able to read and understand the signs. They exist to teach us about ourselves.
Spirit animals show advantages and traits that we should pay attention to, and they can change over the years according to how we change.

How To tell if the Dolphin is your Spirit Animal
These graceful and playful creatures represent both harmony and balance.
If you are not sure what your spirit animal is, there are several ways you can find out: through meditation, witnessing or following signs, or even in our dreams.
By observing nature and animal behavior, we can learn a lot about spirit animals.
If you have realized that you are currently in a life stage when you have to learn how to love yourself again or feel overwhelmed with different emotions, you may have simply forgotten how to relax and play – which makes the dolphin likely to be your spirit animal.
Dolphins teach us how to maintain self-esteem in relationships, both with ourselves and with others.
What does the dolphin represent as a spirit animal?
Different cultures symbolize the animals around us. Throughout history, dolphins have been considered highly intelligent, playful, and well-meaning animals.
Dolphins, as spiritual animals, represent harmony and peace. They also represent joy, playfulness, the strength of will, inner strength, protection, mental acuity, politeness.
Most of the time, we can see dolphins in groups. Accordingly, they symbolize teamwork, as well as cooperation and courtesy. This animal maintains a balance between intelligence and fun, and it is a great teacher.
Dolphins have a calm personality. They do not conflict with other marine animals. That is why they have become a symbol of diplomacy. At the same time, we can hear very often that a dolphin saved someone from another animal’s attack. That is why they are a symbol of protection.
According to Greek mythology, dolphins have the task of guiding the spirits of dead people to the next reality. Thus, they are a symbol of rebirth, as well.
They connect also two elements: water and air.
What the dolphin is trying to tell you
The dolphin becomes your spiritual guide to encourage you to love yourself and be in a diplomatic mood. Then, to teach you how to swim in a sea of different emotions and pressures.
To guide you on how to take a break from responsibilities, and enjoy time with family and friends. Since dolphins often come to the surface to breathe air, they are there to teach you to do just that: come up for air! As your spirit animal, the dolphin wants to show you that you need to rest from time to time. That fun is an integral part of life.
At the same time, compassion for people is necessary for creating a deeper connection, and this spiritual animal will try to teach you that.
Since dolphins are a symbol of cooperation, they appear in our lives as a reminder that we should be compromising with people we love, instead of being overly stubborn.
Dolphins are fearless animals. They teach us the importance of self-confidence, overcoming fears, and the importance of believing in your instincts and intuition.
