In today’s era I believe that everyone is looking for a greater cause and unicorns bring that magic or mythicalism that we want. As a spirit animal unicorns allow us to believe that they can be our divine guides in a spiritual sense. We all want to believe what the unicorn symbolizes which is innocence, purity and magic. Your spirit animal will often come to you when you are going through trying times when you need motivation and encouragement to feed your soul.

Unicorns- Dreams

When one dreams of a unicorn it is like you are meeting these mystical, magical creatures on a spiritual plane. They are known to be a protector and guide.
