When you see a power animal that you are interested in, it will present itself to you from four different sides of itself, whether it flies around you or walks around you or turns itself around, it needs to show itself to you from four sides. When that occurs, you know that is your animal or bird or whatever creature shows itself to you. It is at that time that you will put your arms around it in the Dreamtime. Excerpt from 1997 JT Mysteries of Time Power Animal Mediation.
