The Spiritual Classifications
Of The Wolf
- Working With The Right Energy:
- As you can tell by my Shamanistic name, the wolf is VERY
important to me personally. It's also one of the more common
animals that people want to associate with as an animal guide.
So I have composed this posting based on my experiences and the
teachings of my tradition for those wishing to work with the
- First thing to learn before working with their spirit and
magik, is what their spiritual purpose is. Each wolf
comes to this plane of existence with a special gift of knowledge,
just as we humans do. But unlike us, they (and most animals in
the universe) are much better adapt to living within the balance
of nature and with the flow of natures energy.
- To work with the wolf, one needs to understand how the universal
energy is connected to each wolf and move forward from there.
The following is a brief explanation of this concept of magik
and the right use of energy.
- Wolves are considered by many to be the highest animal in
the spiritual plane. They represent the teachers and guardians
of balance in nature within the Divine Universe. They are the
spiritual messengers in animal form, between the Divine force
and incarnated beings.
- Depending on their color, they teach different lessons and
share different energies with those they watch over and walk
beside. Coloring is used as a means of spiritual classification
for one basic reason. Energy, all energy contains several properties
or traits. It has a sound that can be recoded, a 'energy level'
that can be measured and a color that can be photographed.
- For instance, place your hand on a stereo speaker and play
a song. Do you feel the speaker vibrate with different variations
based on the note being heard? Watch the flames of a fire. The
intense or hottest part of the flame is white, or very light
blue. The "cooler" portion of the flame is more red
- Attaching an energy or purpose to an object, or an animal
based on their color is not a new concept. It's as old as time.
- Within the wolf community, each breed shares a lot of common
energies, as outlined by Ted Andrews in his book Animal Speak.
But learning the specific energies for the individual guides
within the pack are also helpful when working with wolf magik.
- The White Wolf:
Known as the phantom, the white wolf lives in the spiritual and
physical dimensions simultaneously. They teach the lessons which
help to bring both these lives into balance. The help us learn
how to build the bridge between the two worlds so that we might
learn the underlying purpose of events and issues in our life.
- Brown Wolf:
They teach the lessons of health and healing. How to use the
forces of nature in conjunction with the earthly knowledge of
medicine to maintain a balance between the mind/body/spirit connections.
- Gray Wolf:
The hidden lessons, reaching through the veil of sight into the
realm of spirit. The gray wolf is the teacher of spirit connections
and communications. How we can balance our path with information
from our spiritual teachers and guides.
- Red Wolf:
They are the keepers of earth and nature. They help us communicate
with our surroundings, with the earth, with those around us and
with nature in physical or spiritual form (such as in dream or
meditation). They are the teachers of communication, both in
word and gesture. When you see an animal cross your path, and
you're unsure of it's message, the Red wolf can help you decipher
- Black Wolf:
The teachers of the physical. The black wolf helps us to bring
balance into the physical natures, desires and expressions of
our daily lives. They keep us focused on the issues of this plane
of existence where our spiritual lessons and karmic experiences
help us evolve and progress to the next spiritual level.
- These primary colors govern all shades of the wolf kingdom.
Light colored wolves, would fall into the White Wolf category
and so on.
