If Any Of These 15 Animals Cross Your Path, You’re Being Contacted From ‘Above’

by consciousreminder

When certain animals cross our paths they want to give a certain message.

Several Native American tribes believed that each animal held it’s own message and piece of information.

Animals are conscious, sentient beings and it is important that we treat all living creatures with the same dignity and respect that we expect.

The ancients have always regarded animals as being sacred and their behavior was often used as clues and signs at to what Mother Earth might be up to.

By watching the behavior of animals, we can get a better understanding of the energy around us and a deeper insight into intuitive messages and signs.

Just like we have spirit guides, we also have spirit animals. Often spirit animals will come into our lives to give us a message or to teach us something about our own ability and strength.

Sometimes an animal will come into our lives for a brief period of time as a way to signal us as to something that we need to pay attention to.

Common Animal Messengers and Their Meaning


The strong hawk has keen eyes and strong wings. If you continually see hawks or images of hawks, it may be a sign that you need to look at something more closely before proceeding.

It may also be a sign that a strong or important teacher or lesson will be unfolding in your life shortly.


The eagle is a sign of spiritual protection and moving to a level of higher consciousness.

If you repeatedly see eagles or eagle imagery in your life, it could be that you are transcending or shifting into a new realm of consciousness.


Commonly considered a bad omen, seeing a crow or raven could indicate that you are ready to let go of something or that you are getting ready to enter into a “death and rebirth” cycle.

Seeing a raven or crow very rarely indicates physical death, instead it is a sign of an upcoming rebirth.


Seeing an owl is an indicator that you need to pay attention to your intuition and wisdom.

The owl also comes as a reminder to pay attention to any gut feelings that you may be receiving as they are trying to point you in the right direction.

The owl may also be a sign that you need to tune into your truth and act from a place of authenticity.


Cardinal birds have often been associated with receiving a message from a deceased father figure or a male spirit guide.

If you repeatedly see cardinals it could be a reminder that you are being loved and protected by this male, or a reminder to stay strong and confident in the path that you are walking.


Seeing a Bluejay is often associated with receiving a message from a deceased female figure or female spirit guide. If you repeatedly see BlueJays it may be  a reminder to tune into your creativity and keep your creative projects flowing.

It could also be an indication that your family needs you or that family unity is important.

Praying Mantis:

The praying mantis comes to remind us that it is time to bring peace and stillness into our lives. The praying mantis comes as a messenger to remind us about the power of stillness and creating space in our lives for the things that we enjoy doing.

Seeing a praying mantis repeatedly may also be a sign that there is a message that you need to pay attention to or something that you may be missing.


If you repeatedly see lizards or lizard imagery, it may be an indicator that you need to pay more attention to your dreams and goals. Perhaps you have lost sight of all that you can achieve or perhaps you are feeling negative about your abilities to achieve all that you desire.

Seeing a lizard is a reminder that you do have the power and that you need to spend more time cultivating your highest path.


Seeing a snake is a powerful reminder of your life force and your passions. If you repeatedly see snakes or imagery of snakes, it could be that you need to pay attention to your passions and put more energy into pursuing them.

Seeing a snake may also indicate that you are entering into a place of healing and renewal.


Spiders carry powerful symbolism about creation and spiritual connectedness. When you see spiders often it may be an indication that you need to tune into your creative potential and follow through on any ideas or inspirations that you have to create.

It may also be a sign of your connectedness to the spirit world and perhaps also indicate that spirit is trying to send you a message or reminder about this connection.


Seeing a dragonfly is a reminder that you are not alone and that you are very protected by your guardian angels and spirit guides.

If you repeatedly see dragonflies it may also indicate that you are on the right path and are heading in the right direction for your soul.


The ladybug is commonly seen as a good luck sign and indicates that things are about to shift in your favor. Seeing ladybugs or ladybug imagery repeatedly may also be a sign of your need to pay gratitude for all that you have and the direction that your life is taking.

Ladybugs may also indicate a good time for you to push forward in obtaining your highest dreams and wishes.


Butterflies come to remind you about the power of transformation and that there needs to be a shift internally before you can shift externally. If you are repeatedly seeing butterflies, it may be a sign that you need to change or release some thoughts or feelings that are holding you back.

Seeing a butterfly may also indicate a cycle of transformation or growth occurring in your life.


Repeatedly seeing a wolf or imagery of a wolf may indicate that it is time for you to pay attention to the people you are surrounding yourself with.

If you see a wolf, it is perhaps also a sign that you need to learn how to accept help from others.


Foxes comes as a reminder that there could be a different way for you to approach your life or see things. If you repeatedly see foxes or imagery of foxes, it could be that you need to adjust your thinking about something and the way you are approaching things.

Foxes may also come as a reminder to seek joy, to not take things so seriously and to laugh at the little things.

Using your intuition will be key in determining what messages a particular animal is trying to bring into your life. Use this as a guide, however if you found this page, it is most likely an indication that the message written here is for you.

This is bogus. I see 10 of these multiple times a day, and two others on a fairly common basis. This may seem legit to someone in a very urban environment who never sees wildlife, for for rural folk or our ancestors, this is just daily living.

Kate Phillips June 7, 2019 - 12:44 pm

Absolutely agree with you Bonnie. Just what I was thinking as I read it.

Bethany Chance June 9, 2019 - 3:31 pm

Just because it’s common, why should it not be true?

Mass Cognitive Dissonance Phenomenon March 2, 2022 - 4:54 pm

Cause they’re just common animal species in some places. Just cause I see em multiple times every day, doesn’t mean I’m getting constant messages. Everyone in alaska sees eagles, spiders, ravens, ect. multiple times a day, does that mean they’re shifting to a high conscious or experiencing reborth every time we see one? Please use your head for a moment. If these animals approach you, then that might mean a different story

Patricia Brown June 20, 2017 - 9:26 pm

I agree with Bonnie..this is silly stuff. Animals and birds are all around us all the time. So are insects. Where do these people live that don’t see wildlife all the time? Even in the bigger cities, we have a large population of animals, birds, and bugs.

Stephanie June 21, 2017 - 5:13 am

I love this article. Maybe it is bogus to some people but to others maybe it gives them a sense of comfort while grieving. Everyone deals with grief in their own way and deserves to do so. Maybe they never noticed these animals before and just started seeing them in their time of need. Its like a little reminder that someone who is no longer with them in this world is still in some way a part of it and looking after them. Anything that can bring someone some peace of mind and warm their soul is a positive thing to me.

AnonyDVS June 30, 2017 - 1:30 am

The point to it is that if you’re so busy not to notice wildlife around you all the time, frequently one or several animals or bugs will catch your attention and those will help define the message they carry with them that relates to your way of life. Only you will know if the message applies to you or your life. Hope this helps clarify things of which most don’t understand.

I do not agree that this is all bogus since I lost my only daughter on Christmas 2014, she was age 27. We discussed the afterlife frequently and we always believed dragonflies represented loved ones that passed. I have had a dragonfly sit on my porch swing and instead of move away when I sat by it; it came closer. I put my finger out and the dragonfly jumped on my finger and perched there. I have never in my life heard of such a thing. It sat there by me. It hung around by me for a good fifteen minutes. My husband had some issues with my daughter and when he walked back outside with a camera to get pics., the dragonfly dove at his head/hair and she SO would have tormented him like that. LOL. I also went to Walmart to buy yogurt and what is on the tub of yogurt I grab but a dang dragonfly!! Now dragonflies might fly around in nature but they do not perch on fingers and hang out with you nor do they sit on yogurt in the grocery. I have pics of this stuff. and On what would have been my daughter’s 30th bday, I opened the door to let my dogs out and for the first time in ten years of living here, I saw a red cardinal on my fence. I know it says that represents masculine energy here; but she was quite bold and pushy for a girl; so she could qualify as having a lot of masculine quality. I could go on and on about this enough to write a book. So open your minds. These signs can definitely be legit if the circumstances are unusual. I am not talking about every butterfly you see is a spirit or sign; but spirits do use other forms to send signs. It is 100% legit. Momma that is pleasantly haunted by her deceased only daughter 🙂

Interesting story. ?❤️

Kate Phillips June 7, 2019 - 12:47 pm

Bless you x <3 x

sherry July 1, 2017 - 3:29 am

P.s. I always find feathers in my house, little white ones, a long black one, a brown one and it’s not like I’m raising chickens here. They come from out of nowhere. Those kinds of signs are the real deal.

Christopher July 23, 2017 - 3:59 pm

It is not Bogus. You need to realize that nature will interact with you during certain times. These are signs. Sure you can see a crow in the skies, but to have one fly near you, look at you then fly away is a totally different story. Pay attention to what the Universe wants to tell you, there are signs everywhere.

Vickie July 24, 2017 - 5:02 am

Yes crows are a bad sign for me…. death

Vickie July 24, 2017 - 5:01 am

Not all crows are signs, but the ones that appear out no were and talk to me usually a sign of death to someone I know!

Duh July 24, 2017 - 5:59 am

Its so close minded to say “bugs and birds are everywhere ! Im a dumbass” its about the ones you see often and the fact that you acknowledge them in a deeper sense .. Looking for a deeper meaning .. Like humans should .. Not dismiss things you jerks .. You are the reason people are ununited and stupid .. Thanks fer your wack ass opinion ?✌

Franz Hoff August 25, 2017 - 9:37 am

Berating and name calling are not usually the best way to bring about peace and / or help guide people to opening their hearts and minds… just saying… methinks some kindness and love will accomplish much more…

Mass Cognitive Dissonance Phenomenon March 2, 2022 - 5:01 pm

I’m sorry, but your message is contradictory. Animals are everywhere so I can understand what they’re saying; it’s just the ones that approach you is the one that holds more weight. I do agree that the universe is constantly speaking to us and we need to listen, but your message is filled with shallowness and pettiness

Bonnie H November 9, 2017 - 1:36 am

I truly believe you are getting spiritual messages from your daughter! It’s good to know you are paying attention to them and they are bringing you such comfort.

Bonnie H November 9, 2017 - 1:38 am

The above message was for Sherry

Michelle May 13, 2019 - 3:45 am

I truly believe that we all have spiritual animals and the two that have crossed my path have the same meaning

Alana May 31, 2019 - 12:00 am

Yes…REd Cardinal pecked on window repeatedly at the farm.

Bob June 10, 2019 - 2:55 am

Silly superstitions!

Jerri July 12, 2019 - 3:15 pm

What about opossums? lol Twice, in just a couple of weeks, two of the little boogers showed up on my front porch.

Catherine March 12, 2020 - 8:43 pm

And here’s another thing that happened to me I had a butterfly hit me in the head at 10 at night when I was standing with my back door open talking to some friends butterflies don’t fly at night I believe it was my dad. We were very close I even gave him the gift of Life a kidney. And that in itself the butterfly is a symbol for that I believe it was him no one can take that away from me.

Susan Solomon August 1, 2019 - 7:05 am

I do not see most of these animals, bugs. Certain ones a lot-some never

Catherine March 12, 2020 - 8:38 pm

I’ve lived out in the country since 1990 and for the first time my friend and I had to red foxes cross our path @midnight last week.. so does somebody want to explain how bogus that was? I feel like there’s a hidden meaning there somewhere..it’s never happened before…

Mandy Kempkes July 29, 2021 - 12:41 pm

It’s not bogus at all just because they havnt experienced it I know it’s real!!!
My dad visited me as a raven to let me know even though hes not here hes ok I know it was him for the simple fact of how close I was with my dad theirs no doubt in my mind that it wasn’t him
Perhaps maybe people who are not at one with nature would not understand…

CJ Kline December 25, 2023 - 1:36 am

My greatest love – a mustang, taken as a yearling from the wild. He lived to 39 yrs. I was devoted to his health & happiness. Many strange occurrences have unveiled before me since. Horizon had some peculiar habits, unwitnessed of other horses I know. Now a horse I ride starts exhibiting those oddities. I don’t think Horizon is occupying this horse, or bird or other – I think he’s asking this being to do a weird action owned by him to let me know he’s still there.
