That's wonderful news. You're one step closer on the path to enlightenment. How exciting! ;)
If you'd like to try contacting your spirit animal at greater length, I'd like to give you one from my Book of Shadows.
This spell is best performed on a Monday or a Wednesday. Both days are associated with divination, dream work and astral projection. It should also be done close to or during the new moon. This is an auspicious time to call upon the element of air, which most spells concerning astral travel and communication with metaphysical beings require.
You'll need three candles of whatever color you feel best represents your animal (for an owl, whose domain represents wisdom, insight and knowledge, I'd recommend brown or gray) and an offering to your spirit guide. Spiritual entities are drawn to the odor of sandalwood, camphor, chamomile and myrrh - these are excellent offerings. Burn them in incense form or in their dried/resin forms with charcoal in a fireproof container.
Assume a meditative stance. Ground and center yourself. When your mind is focused, recite the following incantation:
Guardian of the dream world
I call you to my side
Reveal to me my spirit animal
My protector and my guide
This will summon your spirit guide for a short time. Use this time to learn as much as you can about your guide - their name, their age, their gender ... whatever information they're willing to impart.
However, try to refrain from sharing this information with anyone else. If you write it down, keep it someplace only you'll be able to find it. When you communicate with a spirit guide, you are making a pact based in trust and mutual protection. Information like that which I've listed above can help people skilled in baneful magic to target you and your guide for negative energies.
When you're finished speaking to your guide, be sure to thank them for their time. Always be polite and respectful to your guide. This extends as far as how you present yourself to them. You should always bathe before contacting spirits as a sign of respect, especially if the bath water is mixed with essential oils to cleanse negative energies. I prefer to perform this ritual skyclad immediately after a self-blessing.
In time, you'll be able to communicate directly with your spirit guide at will without the need for reagents.
Good luck, and blessed be.
