There are many different definitions but you can think of Nahuales as Mayan spirits. Your
Nahual is assigned to you at birth and has a heavy influence on your character and
misdemeanor much the same way the zodiac does. Each Nahual is associated with an
animal of importance to the Maya as well as associated traits, qualities and tendencies.
Within the Mayan culture it is said that each one is related to an animal that is who
directs him, as a guardian angel, someone with whom he identifies himself, with whom
he is spiritually connected. It is also said that each person is even born with the spirit of
an animal, and this is responsible for protecting and guiding the person.
