“Spirikins are animal spirits. Each girl’s spirikin represents her inner self, and that defines which animal chooses her. The spirikin helps a girl acquire the one quality she needs but doesn’t have.”
~ Queen Mangi

Look into your heart: what quality do you need in your life? Do you need to become a better friend or a better listener? Do you need to learn how to ask for help—or maybe how to give it? Do you need to believe in yourself? To express what’s in your heart? Do you need to be more daring, or more patient, or more kind? These are powerful qualities, and to master them you’ll need help from a powerful guide: your spirikin.

You can’t find your spirikin by taking a simple quiz. You won’t find her by making a list of all the good qualities you already have (and you have many!) That’s because your spirikin isn’t about who you are now; she shows you who you can become. No one else can tell you what your spirikin is. The only expert is you!

Ready to find out? Choose one of your favorite things to do, and invite her to reveal herself…

Go on a walk: Go on a hike in the mountains, a stroll on the beach, or a walk around your neighborhood. What do you see? Do certain animals always seem to show up when you go for a walk? Even in the city you can find animals everywhere: eagles nesting on skyscrapers, spiders crafting beautiful webs. Animals can appear in paintings or murals or even show up on billboards or as designs on jewelry or clothes.

Dive into dreams: Before you go to bed, think about what you need to work on in your life. It’s OK if it feels like a really big scary goal to tackle. If you are brave and honest, you will call the exact spirikin you need. Right before you fall asleep, invite your spirikin to come find you in your dreams. Maybe the two of you will meet in Aventurine!

Explore silence: Find a beautiful or inspiring place to sit for a while. Close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing, or just watch the clouds in the sky or the wind moving through the grass. If you start worrying or making lists, set them aside and come back to the present. Your spirikin may come find you if you make space by getting quiet.

Make some noise: Listen to music you love—or jump up and start dancing! What kind of moves seem natural to you? You could even try moving like an animal—soar like a hawk or stalk like a tiger. Keep your mind open and have fun—see what kind of animal comes to dance with you!

Draw your spirikin: Find some time to draw or write. Think about the natural places and animals you feel a connection with. Animals have different strengths and talents. What kinds of strengths do you want to bring into your life? Just start drawing or writing and see what animal shows up on the page. Your spirikin could be as big as a bear or as small and delicate as a lightning bug.

Curl up and read: If you love reading, find stories and facts about animals. Check out forests, mountains, jungles, deserts, plains, oceans and rivers. What seems coolest to you—wolves and tigers, or dogs and cats? Look up birds like eagles, hawks, cranes and songbirds. Find images of whales, dolphins, seahorses and sea turtles. Even check out the smallest (and bravest) of creatures: rabbits and mice, frogs and lizards, dragonflies, spiders, even ladybugs.

Have fun and know that your spirikin will find you when the moment is right!


you have earned a wisdom card!

    its too hard to explain to me. i never started yet anyway!

  10. Please feel free to write comments for me, I check quite often. My spirikin is a siver wolf named star. Here us a tip for finding your spirikin: think what personality that you are not, and then think what animal has that quality. I am teaching a young fairy godmother in training to kalis dance and find her spirikin.

  11. Danielle: of course, I have made many friends. Leave lots of comments: we can talk! Same to Gracie and Chole.

  12. I’m sorry, I forget my name that I put to post by and make up new ones a lot: I’m Miriam, mirisparkle, and MAB.

  13. Ok, mirisparkle, i need a little help to find my spirkin and thank you so much for the idea to help others to fairy godmother academy.

  14. I am not sure what my spirikin is yet, but I love the idea of it! My favourite animal is a horse, but I don’t think it’s my spirikin, not sure why.

  15. Ask me any question and I will answer it the best I can, oh and please use proper punctuation and capitalization.

  16. Julie Bean thanks for using proper punctuation and capitalization. I think that your spirikin is definitely not a horse but with a little info I am sure that you will be able to find out the perfect animal.

  17. Julie Bean I think that your spirikin is definitely not a horse but with a little info I am sure that you will be able to find out the perfect animal.

  18. I just realized what my spirikin is its a Dolphin, I was just sitting down and I started thinking of all the animal movies and documentary’s that I have seen, the dolphin always seemed so playfull and joining others in on any game. Some dolphins are also very artistic and trap fish in sand that has been kicked up to scare the fish into the trap, if you look above it in an airplane view you can see a lot of swirls of sand in the water.

  19. I am sorry about the three first messages I made, there was some internet problems. But I still will answer questions.

  20. I see a lot of you are getting confused on what a spirikin in. I’m going to tell you, because I’ve been doing research on this time of stuff even before I knew about FGA.
    Your spirikin brings out the best in you. Your spirikin is the other half of you. Let’s say you can’t swim. Your spirikin would be able to swim. Wide range of choices, right? Narrow it down by thinking of traits. Happy and playful? Maybe your like the dolphin.

    I hope this kind of clears things up, be blessed!!!!

  21. I can feel a beautiful sensation that I am a Quetzal: a long tailed bird with green and purple red colors.

  22. Hey where can I find the book? By the way I am in Australia that’s why its so early in mine!

  23. i started to draw to find my spirikin and when i was done it looked like a tiger. thats how i found mine.

  24. For those of you who say things like “wild horse” you aren’t making sense. Your spirikin would just be a horse.
    Being sepiffic in this sense only would work for these examples where there are two different subspecies:

    horse and pony opposed to equine
    leopard or snow leopard
    sea lion, mt. lion, or African lion opposed to lion

    another fault with “wild” is that this could describe any of the following:
    wild temper
    free sprit
    geographic location/habitat (which isn’t relevant to sprikins)
    or even insanity/eccentricness

    keep reading 😛
    that one helpful anon.

  25. i think mine is a gold fish because it has pretty good memory and i am forgetful and i am playful(gold fish like to swim around its tank all the time)
