I have recently met two of my spirit guides through meditation and was wondering if someone could tell me the meanings.

First of all was a woodpecker who said his name was Alura (I have never heard this name before so it was hard to fuigure out but I was shown it in syllables) after some research I found out he is a downy woodpecker. He said his purpose was to guide me in all aspects of life and offer advice and motivation.

Secondly I asked for a guide to help me with my writing and met a black oriental short hair who said her name was Jamil (that one popped up straight away).

I would like to know the meanings behind both of these animals please. I have heard various things about cats but cant find anything for woodeckers?

They "tap, tap, tap": They ask you to look for rhythm and patterns in your life.

They "tap, tap, tap" through the layers of bark on a tree: Trees connect to the earth, they hold hidden wisdom, and woodpecker shows you you have the ability to tap into hidden layers of knowledge. 

They "tap, tap, tap": They are called "Earth's Drummer" - Think about shamanic drumming, a rhythmic drumming allows us to go into a meditative state and dig down into the deeper layers of our subconscious. 

I would say, when woodpecker crosses your path, seek cycles and patterns in your life that will open insight into unseen worlds.

Think of a cat's eyes as you look into them with a light shining in them.  It's like you can see into your own soul. Cats are mystery and magic.  They teach us to use our psychic abilities and trust your instincts. They live by instinct. 

Black also represents magic and protection.  Perhaps when cat crosses your path, the best way to protect yourself is by following your instincts.

Hope that speaks to you.  cs:)
