Call Of The Wild: Wolf As A Power Animal

The wolf is regarded as one of the Celtic animal allies. Which basically means it is one of the common spirit guides. The wolf was regarded as cunning, intelligent and with the power to out-wit hunters. As such it can teach us how to avoid dangers that would harm us. The wolf is a great teacher and guide and shows us the mysteries of nature as well as the mystery of death and re-birth.

"We have doomed the Wolf not for what it is, but for what we have deliberately and mistakenly perceived it to be.. the mythologized epitome of a savage, ruthless killer.. which is, in reality no more than a reflexed image of yourself."

— Farely Mowat

Within Pagan traditions and beliefs the wolf is a common power animal or guide. The colours black, white and red, associated with wolves, connect them to the Moon Goddess whose colours these are.

As a power animal the wolf teaches:

  • To learn from your own inner self.
  • How to develop your intuition, instincts and psychic abilities.
  • With proper development of the above, the wolf will guide you to - knowledge and understanding.

In order to gain this knowledge and understanding, we have to journey to our own personal underworld. Here we learn our weaknesses and our inner darkness. From then we journey with our wolf as guide, guardian, and companion into the light of knowledge and understanding. With this comes the development of our spirit.

In these days of great change, it seems very appropriate that a power animal such as the wolf should be the inner plane guide for many who seek deeper meaning from life and who search for greater understanding. The wolf is after all:

  • The teacher,
  • The guide for life and spirit journeys
  • The transformer
  • The opener of the ways.

This beautiful animal has a vital position on both the physical and spiritual planes. As they are the guides and caretakers of our spirit on the astral planes, then it is our duty to care for them on the physical plane. Many people are now moving towards a much better understanding of this extraordinary animal and the more we learn the more we appreciate its abilities.

The wolf stimulates all levels of consciousness. Stirs our spirit to begin the quest and awakens within us the call of the unknown—the call of the wild.
