This is something I'd not really thought about until a couple of weeks ago and I will explain why in a moment, but the general idea was, that I'd like to bring a little of my spirituality into my gaming life.
So here she is, this is Charmer, she's my newest pet and I've had her for a couple of weeks now. She's named after a fox from one of my favourite cartoons as a child, the Animals of Farthing Wood. If any of you have ever seen me mention my spirit beast Dreamer, she's also named after a character from the same program, though Dreamer is a cat named after a fox and Charmer is a fox named after a fox.
Lately, I'd say from about mid December, I've had foxes coming into my life in many different ways which is one way a spirit animal will enter your life, either by showing up everywhere or via meditation and so on. Usually I'd pay attention to the animal, learn a bit about it and accept that it's going to be around for a while and try to learn form the animal or figure out hwy it is around at the moment. The thing with the fox though is, I've always been drawn to foxes even as a young child. One of my favourite things as a youngster was a plushie fox keyring which I took everywhere as well as several larger plushes and toys and, of course, the foxes in Farthing Wood (they were my favourite characters). We also used to have foxes living near by and I loved staying awake listening to them, especially when the cubs were playing in spring.
I'm rambling a little aren't I, sorry!
So that's how I've brought a little bit of my spirituality into my gaming world.
