Bears are fast runners, resourceful hunters, and playful beings. They can be ferocious when necessary, but they are not aggressive all the time. People with a bear totem need to remind themselves to be playful, climb trees, and that it is okay to get into a little bit of trouble now and then. It's okay to let your inner child out!
The bear has an amazing ability to rely on its body fat during hibernation. This totem teaches you to draw upon your own inner resources of energy.
Ask yourself: are you hiding away too much in your own den? Are there aspects of your personality, projects, or relationships in your life that you are storing away in 'hibernation' for later? Are you using your alone time in a way that validates you or to avoid people and situations?
The bear reminds us to take the time to go deep within and to see the positive possibilities in all situations.
