My intuition told me to go on a dry fast. While on this fast I decided to meditate and see if I could contact my spirit guide. My belief in spirit guides is kind of unsure, but I said what the hell. Anyway, a man with the head of a jackal appeared to me. I believe this experience was real because I would have picked some type of cat if I were making it up myself. I thought to myself, "What the hell is a jackal"? Then I remembered it's that dog type animal. lol I asked the spirit why is he my guide and the song, "Teach Me" by Musiq Soulchild started playing in my head. I thought about it for a moment and it sort of makes sense to me... I asked his name and he said his name is Jackal, but I can call him Jack or whatever name I feel comfortable with. After that I cut the communication off with him.

My question is who here knows about the spiritual meaning of Jackals? What do they have to do with love? The song that played in my head when I asked why he was spirit guide was a love song. I haven't found much about jackals spiritually except for info mostly on the Egyptian god Anubis. I can see the connection with Anubis since according to my natal chart, I'm naturally predisposed to things involving death. I'm trying to understand the connection between jackals(Anubis) and love.

Jackals are scavengers, carrion eaters, and are thus metaphorically cloaked in the stench of death. This gives rise to the obvious association with death, but in making the jackal a god, the negative connotations are re-framed into a more positive perception. Anubis becomes the god of embalming, and thus is seen as caring for the immortal soul of the deceased. This loving preparation of the dead is the feel good sacred bit, even as the enevitabliity of death is the primal sacred truth that gets covered over. At a more religious level, the jackal is loving because it cares for the soul, and is a type of psychopomp. At a more atavistic level, it returns the energy of the deceased to the cycle of life, mirroring the religious meaning in a way, but also embodies both the fear of death, and the longing for the surcease of pain. My take. Remember the salt.

Love means death.

Love is transformative. As is death.

Love can hurt or feel good. So can death.

When you devote yourself to another, your old self dies. Sometimes you purposefully sacrifice yourself for the sake of love, sometimes it happens without you even realize it.

After love, you can never be the same person again.

I once read a wolverine comic where wolverine came into contact with his spirit animal which was a panda. Upon questioning why HIS spirit animal was a panda and not..well..a wolverine or something, the panda responded with something along the lines of things like wolverines and wolves and stuff are actually too busy being awesome and hunting things to bother with being some dude's spirit animal.
