A totem animal is one that you feel a strong affinity with and can even take on its characteristics. It’s often an animal that you personally identify with or find appealing for some reason.
Why have a totem animal?
Having a totem helps guide us in our lives; it reminds us of who we are and what we stand for. This can be at a deep level within ourselves, helping us to make decisions if we’re accidentally veering from the path that we should be taking, or it could be picking up on messages from the universe through messages from our totem during meditation or simply observing them in their natural habitat. They can also give messages about how others see us because they will notice the subtle changes when we’re around them.« Back to Glossary Index
