But I’m going to be honest with you…… The awesome reality of that is true. However! This post is in no way meant to tell you what to do. Nope!

Gorilla’s are amazing huge and powerful animals. They exude a quiet honour and a still dignity that makes a much more profound statement than any boast. Their leadership skills are not of the aggressive kind, rather the gorilla manages other members within the troop with temperance. As a spirit animal, the gorilla reminds us to raise our heads and take pride. Words associated with the spirit of the gorilla are. LOYALTY, DIGNITY, STRENGTH, INTELLIGENCE, NURTURING.

How about a Croak? I’m sure we all know this joke! Ha! SO Coke have this ‘Share a coke with’ campaign thing going on and while I think it’s genius, my name is never on things (as far as I am aware). I’ve protested! and even though I am probably more of a lemonade person. I am rooting for Croke!! YES!!  Because let’s face it Croaca Cola is a lot more tasty!! So Share A Croke With Annie!

Power Owl!


There are over 100 different species of Owls. We all know that most Owls are nocturnal and The most striking animal meaning for the owl is its deep connection with wisdom and intuitive knowledge. The owl has very keen hearing and vision, which enables the owl to perceive what others cannot. As a spirit animal, the owl guides you to see beyond the veil of deception and illusion; to have a strong intuition to see information and wisdom beyond deceiving appearances into the true reality of a situation or a person’s motives. Words associated with the spirit of the owl are WISDOM, MYSTERY, TRANSITION, SECRETS, INTELLIGENCE.
