It was Saturday, September 26th 2020, just a three days after I learned I had Breast Cancer. I was going to get a massage to clear my mind and prep my body for chemo the following week to release the stress that I was overwhelmed with. Shockingly enough, I fell into a deep meditative state thanks to my amazing Masseuse and Reiki healer. It was at that moment I connected with my Spirit Animal, a beautiful, sleek, strong AF Black Panther. In my meditation, I saw the graceful,yet powerful, Black Panther hiding in the trees and vibrant flowers ready to attack the cancer. It was my protector, it was going to remove all of the cancer so I could feel at peace. It is a memory I will never forget! While there were many moments I felt scared, I knew I was going to be ok!
Fast forward to 2021 when I completed all my treatments and I was Cancer Free, I came across this picture of this beautiful women and elegant Black Panther. This picture gives me all of the feels from my meditation back in September 2020. I decided to research and see what the Black Panther symbolizes and here is what I found.
“The Black Panther spirit animal is powerful and protective. The panther symbolizes courage, valor, and power. If the Panther is your power animal you are blessed with a fierce guardian. The panther is a symbol of the mother, the dark moon, and the power for the night. This totem animal encourages us to understand the power within the shadows and to acknowledge these powers to eliminate our fear of the dark and unknown. “- Elena Harris
Whoa YES to all of this! My spirit animal showed itself when I needed it the most. Super powerful and just simply amazing! Signs from the Universe are always showing up for your highest good- you just have to be consciously open enough to see them!
So what is your Spirit Animal?
