Many people believe in spirit animals. A spirit animal is an animal that guides and protects a person. It is also an animal with which a person shares many characteristics. For example, someone whose spirit animal is a cat tends to be curious and independent. If your spirit animal is a dove, you appreciate peace and new beginnings. Those who are connected to dolphins are intelligent and playful. Do you feel like a fox? That means you follow your instincts and adapt to your surroundings. Are you more of a lion? Then you have courage and are a leader. People who identify with wolves are intelligent, trust their instincts, and value their freedom.
While you may know your spirit animal, a different animal may guard your heart. Do you get hurt easily when you're in love? Are you more interested in getting to know someone at an emotional level or on an intellectual level? Have you ever moved too fast in a relationship? How about too slow? Do you usually make the first move or prefer to have someone else do so? Let this quiz help you figure out why that is the case!
If you feel connected to nature at a spiritual level, this quiz will tell you which animal guards your heart. You may be surprised by the answer!
