If you have read our past blogs, we blogged about how we all have a Spirit Guide(s). We also explained what a spirit guide is. Now we want to add Animal Totems to the mix.
An Animal Totem is another type of a Guide we have with us throughout our lives. The purpose of the animal totem is different for each person. With this one animal a connection is shared, either through interest in the animal, dreams, or other interaction.
Webster’s Dictionary defines a totem as: “A natural object, usually an animal that serves as a distinctive, often venerated emblem or symbol. A means of personal or spiritual identity.”
A totem is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol of a tribe, family or individual. Tradition of the Native American states that each person is connected with nine different animals that will accompany each of us through life, acting as guides.
Different animal guides come in and out of our lives depending on the direction that we are headed and there are different tasks that are need to be completed along our life journey. Thus, different animal guide for our different progress through life.
These Animal Guides offers power and wisdom to us all when we “communicate” with them, and we show them respect and trust. These animal totems are there for us to take journeys with them to get to know them and in return they help us along the way. They help pave the path and help guide us with a clear vision.
For some, knowing what is their totem animal is almost an innate process. It’s as if they’ve always known or had a connection to a particular animal and they just feel a connection to them.
Some people are curious to know about their animal totem and see a spiritual teacher or Intuitive to help them discover their animal.
Once you know your animal guide and their reasoning for them being present in your life at that time, you can use them to help you with your journey.
If you are aware of your guide there are many great books and website that have the meaning of the different animal totems. It truly is wild to see the meaning and put it in prospective with what is going on in your life and what you need at that time.
It’s so reassuring how we have so much support and guidance when all we have to do is just ask!
