Just like any friendship if you dont maintain a healthy relationship people move one. Power animals do come and go. When a client is sick of can not journeying for themself the Shamanic Practitioner journeys on their behalf and retrieves and blows the power animal back into the client. After words the client is instructed on how to maintain a healthy relationship with their power animal.
Power animals are similar to an Angel whose with you at all times. These guides have many roles and lengths of times they spend in your life. Power Animals are just that. They are advisors, extensions of your personal power and protectors. Both are spirits that lend themselves to us even if were not aware similar to ancestors and angels.
When things don't go as planed role with the tide. You'll land where you need to be. Please give a heads up, Blessed be.
