For future reference:
Is my spirit animal tied to my consciousness?
Yes, your spirit animal is inextricably tied to your consciousness. It sees everything you see. You cannot sneak up on it.
How can I kill it if it can see what I see?
Use a blindfold. There's one provided in your welcome kit. You can then poke your spirit animal with your tree branch.
That sounds like a piñata! Are you just fleecing me out of $7500?
A small number of people do get piñatas as their spirit animal. This is not a trick though; it's just the spirit animal they were dealt by the cosmos.
