Spirit Animals & Insects
The belief in spiritual and sacred animals and animal worship has been an important part of religion since before the Pyramids. Deities themselves have specific animals and insects linked directly to them, which in turn gives the animals and insects a sense of divinity, status, and spiritual purpose. They also symbolize aspects we wish to harness, such as wisdom, patience, courage, and so many more.
Now obviously many cultures and tribes view creatures in different ways. Some see cats as protectors, while others see them as evil. In the end you should always take what others say about them with a grain of salt because your culture and religion will influence your understanding and belief on Spirit Animals and Insects.
...Though you gotta laugh at a person's reaction when they find out their Spirit Animal is actually a Bee or a Spider...
