Your Spirit Animal is a Rabbit! Rabbits are beautiful and delicate creatures. Rabbits have to be aware of what is going on around them and so are very quick, but can be nervous and timid.
Rabbits enjoy nothing more than running around in a field, playing with their friends and family and exploring, and so the rabbit as a spirit animal encourages this natural playfulness. Anyone who has owned a pet rabbit will probably have seen a binkie - a jumping motion with twists in the air that they only do when very happy. Rabbits encourage us to keep expressing our joy and happiness, as this is when we bloom in front of others.
Rabbits have one of the shortest gestation period of any animal (hence the saying 'breed like rabbits!) and so they offer us the idea of rebirth and a new beginning, particularly if you feel you are not happy with your life.
Rabbits are soft and gentle and these are excellent traits to express, however the negative qualities demonstrated by rabbits are an excess of fear, shyness and nervousness, and so the rabbit as a spirit guide may well indicate that it is time for you to start a new beginning and lose your fears, and once you do you will be truly appreciated.
Positive Traits: Joyful, Gentle, Soft, New Beginnings
Negative Traits: Nervous, Overly Sensitive, Shy, Fearful, Moody

The Seagull is Your Spirit Animal! The Seagull brings with her a sense of freedom and a usually carefree attitude. She soars high above the land above, and so brings you perspective on any situation you might have, by reminding you to take the 'birds eye view'.
The seagull is also an opportunist, grabbing food from wherever he sees it, which some may see as negative but really it should be encouraging you to make the most of any opportunities that come your way. On the negative side, this can lead the seagull to laziness, and so as with all Native American teachings is there to remind you to take the middle path between opportunism and laziness - as long as you stand with integrity you will succeed.
The seagull is a real survivor, come what may and so is a great animal to appear when we are having difficulties in our lives as it can be a source of inspiration to keep going. This animal is known for its creativity and so if you are having difficulties the seagull reminds you to look for new solutions to your problems.
You most likely have a lot of energy which is great and people will like you a lot for it, but be wary of straying into restlessness or becoming too loud. You are probably regarded as easy going, but at the same time you partly try to engineer situations without stress, and may not do so well when stress is piled up. That's fine, and the seagull is here to help you not get stressed, reminding you to fly free with joy in your heart, then your problems will seem much smaller and insignificant.
Positive Traits: Versatility, easy-going nature, creativity, joyful, free, sense of perspective, friendly
Negative Traits: Laziness, loud, can get stressed easily

Your Spirit Animal is the Snake. The Snake is a very unusual animal, on the one hand symbolizing strong spiritual knowledge and power, but also engendering fear in many people. The snake tends to be a mysterious and misunderstood creature and so those who have the snake will probably find that people react to them strangely sometimes.
If the snake has come into your life it is likely to be encouraging you to explore your creative and intuitive powers. You are probably a strong natural healer, and the snake encourages you to go further with this.
Snakes are wise but also willing to experience new things (particularly related to consciousness and magick) that others may not dare to do. Snakes in the wild shed their skin and so they offer the magic and power of transmutation and rebirth. If the snake is your totem you have new worlds awaiting you!
The darker side of the snake is when these abilities are not properly expressed and in this case the snake can represent anger and violence, something which must be avoided.
Like all animals, the snake represents both negative and positive qualities. In the view of the Native Americans we can learn from our spirit animal by studying both types of qualities and striving to improve further at the positive ones and avoid the negative ones.
Positive Traits: Healer, Psychic, Spiritual, Powerful, Sensitive
Negative Traits: Secretive, Frightening, Violent
