"One look in my eyes and you can see the truth of who I am." That is the first line in Steven D. Farmer's book, Power Animals, How to Connect with Your Animal Spirit Guide, under Wolf.
Farmer goes on to explain the role of Wolf as our guide: one of teacher and guardian, especially in matters of family and community. The wolf lives within a complex social structure and uses highly developed methods of communicating with its kin. Through this communication, wolf creates a space of harmony and balance within her pack. Wolf medicine therefore teaches us to direct our lives with this same discipline of harmony. Only then, through the spirit of cooperation, can we accomplish our common goals.
Wolf also embodies heightened senses of eyesight, smell and hearing. If you connect strongly to Wolf, use this guidance when you are having a hard time discerning the truth from others. Look with the inner eye, and listen with the heart. Wolf is a fearsome protector and will help you navigate when you turn down a false path, including helping us detect those who would lead us astray. Meditate on finding your true path, by listening to your true inner voice, and you will find Wolf loyally walking that path at your side.
