"What is the main thing your needle felted spirit animals help people with?"
I was recently asked this question and it is a great one. I create these darling little needle felted animals, but so do a lot of other people. There are amazing artists out there! So how are mine different? What do they offer you?
Their primary purpose is to provide you with energetic support for your own healing path. They accompany you on this path, a reminder, a motivator, a meditation buddy, an item that makes you smile, and yes, a piece of art to add to your home.
Spirit animals are easy to listen to. They give clear messages based on their actual characteristics, and if you don't know what those are, they are easy to look up. Since we love animals, we are more likely to listen to them, say over our spouse or parent. If my husband tells me I am overreacting to something and to stop digging my heals in, I am likely to really show him what overreacting is (I am an Aries after all). But if Butterfly comes to me and says "lighten up and trust where the breeze is taking you" I am delighted. Or if I am spinning my wheels over a project that I just can't quite see the next steps, Eagle can swoop in and tell me to take a step back and look at it from a higher perspective, and then zero in on the details that actually matter. Eagles literally have some of the best eyesight of all animals, and they soar high above everything to assess the situation.
People love animals, so representations are everywhere: paintings, sculptures, book covers, TV programs, toys, etc. Plus the real ones of course! This gives your spirit animal a lot of opportunities to find you and remind you of their message and support. You simply need to pay attention and they will find you. The picture below of me with my Rufus hummingbird painting is a great example. When I decided to separate my energy art more from my work as an energy healer, I wanted to update my logo, or have a distinction between the two. My original logo is a green hummingbird, and decided that the orange-red of the Rufus was the bold color I needed. My goal for our upcoming vacation was to solidify my logo, message, mission statement.
We like to collect art from locals when we go places. I told Josh I wanted a small painting of a Rufus. I had a very specific piece of art that kept popping into my head, but could not quite find it looking online. Josh saw an image of a painting, called the lady, she still had it, so we went to her studio to get it. It was EXACTLY what I had seen in my mind. The size, shape, and image. I was so delighted and amazed! I quickly finished my goal for my new logo.
One of the many things I like about my needle felted spirit animals is that they are small, compact, and not very breakable. While I love my Rufus painting, I also have a photo of one at my art table to remind me of his energy while I create art. He helps me remember my goal and mission for creating energy art to help others. If I had a needle felted version of him, not only could I take him around with me, but he would be infused with the energetic footprint of a humming bird. I think this is him telling me to do that!
Once completed, I figure out the flower, gem, or color essence that matches the vibrational message of the animal, and infuse it through a special process you can read about here. Included with each animal is a card that tells you the message they carry for you, and the essences I infused it with to compliment the message.
So now you have a physical art piece that you can take around with you that essentially radiates out the vibration of the message of the spirit animal. Talk about being with you on your path to wellness!
You can look through the animals I have made, or you can request your spirit animal from me, I can and love to make anything new!
May find and listen to your spirit animal today,
