Spirit Animal Totems

Your light will shine if you only let it. Know that your higher self will only give you straight forward, positive and encouraging support.

When Eagle comes flying into your life:

It is time to reconnect with your spiritual path. It’s time to listen too and heed your spiritual directives as well as your heart and to allow them both to lead the way for you at this time. When you can find yourself in this state of flight then all the doors will open and the directions you need to follow will be made clear. Like a beacon – your heart will follow the light.

If Eagle is your Animal Totem:

When Eagle is a part of who you are you carry the symbol of air, but have strong legs to walk on the earth and often live near the water for food. Through these qualities you can be guided to balance in all dimensions and achieve inner-growth. As you soar to spiritual awareness, you will remain well grounded in reality and can purify yourself with cleansing waters.

If Eagle has soared into your dreams:

If the Eagle is perched and looking at you it brings a message of self-examination and introspection. Meditate and look within.

If Eagle takes to flight it may symbolize your ability to rise above your current problems or position.

If the Eagle soars above it can be a symbol of your higher consciousness, or higher powers communicating to you, listen carefully to your intuition.

To dream of two eagles mating means that you have attained the spiritual goal you have been striving for. Your hard work has paid off.

Lastly, if the Eagle is diving in, or consuming a kill, it may be a portent of danger or ruthlessness. Do not step on others to achieve your goals, and be warned that someone in your life may be willing to step on you to achieve theirs.

  • yesterday on thanksgiving i was on the beach reading an entire chapter of profound prayers one by one in order to ask for the improvement of a challenging life changing situation . i had two pomegranates in my lap and my hand was on them i was going to offer them to the ocean at sunset. as i was done, after quite some time, one never knows when it is done until it is done … i looked up … and an eagle was sitting looking at me at literally an arms length . it was as if time stopped . for an extended moment . then the giant bird took off into the air . i have no idea how long it was there with me . was it the energy of the words or the intention that drew the bird in so close … or was there something i should have understood from this gracious gesture .

    there were no other people around only far into the distance there were seagulls though . they seemed to be distant witnesses .

    do eagles sit in the close vicinity of humans at all … i was and still am overcome with gratitude for the honor yet i know little of what it may mean . if there are signs we receive this would appear to be one ?

    anyone more knowledgable in this field …

    • Dear phaedrana,
      I personally think that the eagle may be your spirit animal. I had an experience similar to this, except it was a dream. I met my spirit animal-a panther with glowing purple eyes, through a Spirit calling (Spirit calling is just a dream after you meditate or just think about finding your spirit animal a lot) but my animal saved me from an attacker, she (the panther) looked me in the eye and we had a short connection with each other….just as if time had stopped……..then she snarled-time unfroze, and she gracefully, yet effortlessly, killed the attacker’s animal (a golden leopard with lavender-pink eyes) with a single bite between the skull and the ear. The girl gasped, and the panther (black jaguar actually) turned to me, roared at me warning me to run and GET OUT! So this eagle could be your spirit animal or an animal totem. Yet, it could be just another of your possibly million animal connections (I have a ton of them). I advise you to research.
      God bless!

  • Alrite, so, I had a dream about An eagle and it didn’t frighten me but in the dream the eagle was flying then it was flying towards me at a really fast speed and I flinched back, thinking I was going to get knocked down, but I was surprised that right before it almost touched me it started to soar high into the sky again, right over the house I lived in. Can someone please give me spiritual advice to what this dream means?

  • Dear brig7,
    you seem to have a connection with birds (so do I !) but crows are masters of illusion and it could be a crow. Also if your western sign or any other sign such as moon or rising is a Scorpio- read my statement about your western sign going back one because of the earth’s movement on the posts below to haley, then maybe it is suggesting that your Scorpio is evolving into the eagle phase. Your life could be changing! Also the eagle could be a messenger animal telling you to follow your spiritual path and your heart. Maybe you are going through a dark time now (remember that a change is in possibility) so things will get better! Or maybe a hard change is coming into your life and that you will need to live with hope so be careful! Also it could symbolize that you have gone astray from the world and need to get back on the path, or you need to venture out onto a new path and try new things.The eagle symbolizes loyalty, leadership, responsibility, healing and strength. So you decide! :mrgreen: -Hailey P.

  • Today I say an eagle sitting in a ditch next to a road. What does this mean?

    • Ooohhh! Tough one brig7 😕 😕
      I’m not so sure, let me have some time to figure this out. Right now I’m working on some important homework, so try looking up some things especially eagle totems on Spirit Animals and Animal Totems. I’ll catch up on you later! Remember to try to meditate on what it means to yourself and how it affected you and your thought on seeing it! 😀 😀

  • An eagle came to me in my dream. He was perched on a bush at the corner of my house just staring at me but friendly and tame. I walked up to him and said “Eagle!”. Then he said ” No. Hawk” in a mans voice, like he was saying that he was a hawk in an eagles body. Then I put my arm out for him to perch on
    He was heavy and big but he still climbed onto my arm. Then, while still loking at me, I heard a sweet womans voice say something and he flew away. But I did not watch him fly. Is he saying that I have spiritual sight? Since the Eagle is bird that travels through realms and the hawk has hawk vision?

    • Dear haley, 😛 😛
      i believe that this eagle in your dream was not exactly a eagle but a hawk. I think that maybe the eagle was a dream messenger telling you that the hawk was your spirit animal, or maybe even one of your signs on the zodiac. I have animal connections too; hawks, lizards, ravens, vultures, cats, falcons, owls, and other animals. The animals that I have connections with are all on my zodiac. So check all of your astrology charts, whether it be Native American, Western (western signs go backwards now since the stars have moved ex. if you were a Sagittarius, you are now a Scorpio, if you were a Pisces you are now an Aquarius ect.) Eastern sign (chinese zodiac),
      Mayan, Celtic or Vedic. But I had a dream (which you can read about on Jaguar once it is posted) of a jaguar saving me from a leopard. The jaguar was black with glowing purple eyes. We seemed to have a connection, some how I knew she was mine (even being the first time seeing her). At first I thought she was a leopard, but in another dream, she appeared with some other animals on a path in the forest(my brothers spirit animals) and when I saw her I heard a random untoned voice say “JAGUAR” . So i realized that this was my spirit animal and my main element was fire, my little brother’s animal was a white and silver male wolf with blue gray eyes, his element is water, a huge moose crossed the path and I could tell it was both male and my older brother’s, his element was earth (all element predictions per person true to zodiac- amazing!). I knew this was my animal spirit for I had been searching for it for a long time, and it seemed to fit and bring back old memories of connections with certain animals; komodo dragons, jaguars, lions, and reptiles (at the zoo). But the jaguar stuck most, we stared at each other as my grandmother draged me away until I could no longer see HER in through the crowd. i had promised to get her out of the cage, and this left a mark. I knew this was my animal, I named her “Isra” for she traveled on a path at night to visit me and traveled to meet me in my dreams at night. The birds of the Heavens taught me to accept myself. So look at the sky and watch the birds above, because they will help guide you to your destiny! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: -Hailey Prophet

  • I dreamt of an eagle standing next to me, fiercely looking my way. The eagle then took off into flight, it turned around flying backwards kinda like hovering high above me still fiercely looking my way. Then it swooped down around me in a circle with a scroll clinched in its talons. And I woke up.

  • This morning I had a dream of eagles. They were flying overhead and in and out of the trees. I was in an open field on a dirt lane wth a friend when an eagle came down and landed on my head. It flew off then I had one land on my left shoulder. When it perched on my shoulder, it felt like a tamed bird. All the while this is happening, I’m yelling to my friend to take a picture, but she never sees it and is slow to react and the eagle flies off. Searching for some clarity! Help :-)

  • I was training to get ready for basics and an eagle flew not 15 feet above me. I know it probably thought I was food and left when i saw it but do u think it could be something? maybe about the military?

  • This morning I had a dream that I witnessed a golden eagle being attached by a lesser or more inferior bird. It was on the ledge of the window of the the house I was in. I felt so afraid as I watched this inferior bird peck at the head of the golden eagle continuously and killing it. The golden eagle was super large and seemed as though it could have won the battle but some how the smaller bird who was inferior defeated the large golden eagle. My dreams most of the time have meaning, this one has beat me that I do not understand. Thanks

    • I wonder if this dream is indicating to you something about losing part of your power, unable to defend yourself against some opposition that is more aggressive. It seems the eagle was being too passive, which horrified you. I am assuming, based on your reaction, that you identified with the eagle and thus your subconscious is revealing to you some fear/insecurity you must face to re-find your center of power. Oddly enough, you may recognize this subconsciously in the slip of tongue when you wrote, “this one has beat me”. It is also symbolic that the eagle was on a window, either needing to come in or go out (?) The window thus seems to be a barrier to the freedom or support you need. Animal conflict dreams seem to indicate a battle of forces within yourself, probably more so than a battle with another person or event etc. (though that is a possibility too, or its both). However, since you have dreamt of an eagle I would take heart, summon your courage, ask for some clarity and face your challenge head on, as an eagle would.

    • It may mean that something may happen that is to powerful to control.

  • Last nigh I dreamt I was working in a high mountainous area renting cottages to people and I was also living in one. I was taking a “guest” (could hear the guests voice but didn’t see him) to his cottage and noticed a huge shadow flying over us. The guest was frightened as he saw the eagle and asked if we could take shelter until he felt safe. I didn’t know why he was making such a fuss as I explained that the eagles live in the area and there and nothing to be concerned about. My cottage was closer so we went into it so as to calm this man down. As I was talking there was a tapping noise on my window and as I looked out an enormous eagle flew up to the window cracking it on the lower left hand side with his talon. He was looking right at me and then flew off. Just then I heard another noise on the lower level of the cottage and I took off running towards it to check it out. There was a small animal standing upright just looking as me with a curious smile and a rabbit was sitting next to it. I could hear the “guest” mention that the eagle was flying to his “house” and then I found myself outside looking on the other shore high up on the mountain was a wooden gray building with numbers on it I didn’t take note of. I was too much intrigued that the eagle entered through the doorway of this building and shut the door behind him. It felt in the dream that the eagle had a message for me. I didn’t feel afraid of the encounter, but was a bit shocked, curious, and intrigued by it all. Could not find out what the other animal that appeared as I couldn’t locate a picture of it. This is a wonderful site. Thanks for letting me share my dream with you. Blessings

  • I had a dream of three eagles one came down and brought me a light i held itnin my to hands then i wokenup i would like to know what it means

  • While I was battling cancer, Bald Eagle came to me in a dream. I was outside of my home with a Native American young man. We were watching the eagle make circles over the house. For some reason I put out my arm and invited the eagle to land on it. He did and looked into my eyes for a while. Then he took to the skies again. I am approaching my fifth year of being cancer free. I believe the eagle came to help me battle cancer with his strength. A Cherokee shaman friend of ours told me that was no dream but a vision and a very powerful one. He says that Eagle is Creator’s messenger and I received an important message that day—do not lose Hope, cancer will NOT win.

    • Thank you for your post, it encourages me. I just spent a few days at a family camp we are often invited to share time together at. The first afternoon my daughter calls to me to come quickly outside. Circling low is a bald eagle, literally over the house, and once over the end of the house I sleep in with my husband. I can see its white head feathers. While not cancer, I am quite sick, have recently received some very bad news and am facing treatment at considerable risk. My daughter’s husband’s mother, the matriarch and owner of the camp tells me they have never seen eagle at the camp before in many many years. I immediately felt spoken to and am slowly beginning to understand eagle’s message. Thank you.

  • In 1970 I climbed Thunder Mountain, a sacred mountain in the Humboldt Range of North Central Nevada. I inched my way along a narrow ledge on a sheer cliff face to a cave. I entered and, with a rope, descended about 15 feet to the dirt bottom and picked up a pair of coyote mandibles. I climbed back up and exited. Just outside I picked up a tail feather and looked up to see Eagle about 10 feet directly overhead flying tight circles and speaking in eagle talk. I was a member of the Bear Tribe Medicine Society and understood that I was being offered Eagle Medicine. I accepted.

  • Eagles are with me when i even did not know about totem or spirit animals.. Perfect spirit guide :-)

  • About 2 weeks ago an eagle was circling above my home. As always, I watch and admire the eagle’s in our area. This time it was different. Ive been going through some major changes and an up coming surgery. Along with not being happy at my job. I feel strongly that the eagle I was gazing at, spoke to me, guiding me toward what I truly have passion for. Opening my own business relating to animal photography, pet retail. After my surgery I will begin pursuing this goal. I will never forget and will always appreciate what happened 2 weeks, life changing in such positive way.

    • I really appreciate what you wrote I have been so worried and this story makes me feel as if I drifted from god because of all the thing that I have been through I am 34 yrs old and in 2013 I had open heart surgery on the recovery table I stroked I had to have a cranium done (brain bleed ) was the largest St Joes main in Lexington KY and the brain bleed was the largest the hospital ever seen and it is a very well known hospital.. When I awoke I couldn’t Talk or walk and was paralyzed on my entire right side …. I could only speak to him through my heart ..He answered all my prayer … I can talk again and walk and write…Lately I have had so much going on Lately.. I believe the eagle soaring around my house was speaking good things over my house and reminding me that its going to be okay GOD is in control we don’t feel his presence because we drift from him …..

  • I just heard some eagles calling , I went to the window and saw 2 in the tree by my house . I said out loud I hear you calling , but can’t understand .They stopped calling .I have also been visited by 3 crows/ravens as well , what can this mean ??

  • I have dreams where an eagle wont leave me alone. It sits on my lap if im outside. If im in a building it sits on the roof of the buildiing. When im driving it flys fallows my car. What does this mean

  • Eagle is a great totem and spiritual teacher.. When i feel lonely then Its his love which holds me, its his faith which keeps me, its his honesty which captivates me & its him whose presence enables me to challenge the world when the world asks me “Do u hv any Protector?”.. Dis shows his reliability. And i know that they will never fofeit it.. He is silent guardian & watchful protector.

  • Eagle has been with for many Years before I knew about totems and guides. He has always kept me through difficult times and caused me to sore above the lower realms of confusion and what ever else was going on. 😉

  • Some time ago I dreamt I was walking through a beautiful meadow on a bright sunny day. I spot an injured eagle up ahead. I pause, not wanting to scare it. I want to help but don’t know what to do. Even as sickly looking as it is it could rip me to shreds. I consider heading back to my car and driving for help, when another huge eagle swoops down in front of the sickly one and slowly plucks out one of its feathers! It’s a ghastly sight and I’m freaked right out.. The smaller one shrieks out in pain and I want to chase the bully eagle away but he turns around and faces me, one large feather sticking out of his beak. He flies off, lighting about ten feet away. He is gazing at me and I know something very powerful is going on. I look around and spot a nice flat rock, large enough for me to sit on. I head there slowly, sit down, spread my figures out towards the injured bird and proceed to send healing, both of them watching me. It was one of the most vivid dreams I’ve ever had and felt that some very powerful medicine was going on. Upon waking I felt somehow honoured, that I’d been privy to witness some strange mystery, brutal as it was. Strange, really. It made me realize that the only power I really have in this world is how I react in any given situation. Eagle has often come to me in dreams and visions.
