Animal Totems

In many cultures, it is believed that there are valuable lessons that can be learned from the animals. By studying their mannerisms and the ways in which they live and survive, many times those lessons can be applied to our own lives.

I have found after studying animals social behaviors that frequently the lessons that the animal can give, often apply to a current situation that I am experiencing.

I was taught by an elder a long time ago, that we have one animal totem throughout our life, and several other totems will come in and out during transformational periods.

Do you know your animal totem? How can you find out?

Tomorrow I will begin to discuss that, and spend some time each day for the next few weeks talking about several different animals and their meanings.
