When the Hedgehog Spirit Animal comes along, it’s often because you feel like other people will never understand you. There’s a surging desire for curling up inside and hiding behind a pasted-on smile. Hedgehog understands this and says if you feel guilty about needing alone time, don’t. It’s okay to retreat, but you can’t stay inside a shell forever. There will always be instances when you misunderstand others may not understand your occasional need for isolation.
A second reason you may have Hedgehog stopping by as a Spirit Animal is to spur your curiosity and activate your inner explorer. There is a whole, glorious world in which to take part. Garden, hike, gather up nifty items on a beach. Then, kick your heels up at the end of a long day, take a deep breath, and enjoy a moment downtime. Relaxation is in their playbook!
Hedgehog is not a bull-headed Spirit Animal. It waddles in unassuming, yet you “know” this Being is present. Sometimes Hedgehog wants you to understand you don’t need a lot of fanfare to stay true to yourself and make an impression. Stay centered; be yourself. You have talents, and they will shine through.
When working with Hedgehog, you may find your sense of smell and hearing heighten, akin to Hedgehog’s natural abilities. Taken to a spiritual level, you can experience moments of Clairalience or Clairaudience. Pay close attention to the messages you receive as they often have to do with your health, safety, and protection.
