Every animal has its own unique abilities, talents, and capabilities. This is the same for humans as well. From a spiritual perspective, some people have more past life experience, and information than others. Some people have incarnated to achieve specific goals and go through a variety of experiences – some positive and some negative.
Your spirit animal totem can help you to see opportunities in your life. Pay attention to animals you see when you are outside your home and out in nature. Your spirit animal will come to your through a variety of synchronicities. At first glance you may not like your spirit animal; this is good, because it means you have a lot to learn from it. Our spirit animals are not for glamour.
Your totem can help you to grow, heal, inspire, and change. Its energy can help to protect and empower you.
Animals exist within a web of life, and experience the cyclical karma of predator and prey survival patterns and instincts. Humans are the stewards of the earth. We often forget that we are part of this dynamic web too.
Further down the line, people even forget that they are spirit and identify wholly with a survival and competition matrix – seeing nature as a terrifying force of seemingly endless creation and destruction in which one must constantly fight. This is an atheist conceptualization. Viewing ourselves as stewards, rather than super-predators, can change our role from one of destruction to balance.
The forests are the lungs of the planet. The oceans are our blood, intracellular, and extracellular fluids. Nature is constantly changing; millions of species have gone extinct and millions more will be created over the course of the next few billion years.
There are different ways to use and work with an animal totem. You can match the energy of an animal and take on its information as if it were yours. This may work well in some instances, and it may not work well in others.
If you have been meditating for long enough you should be able to communicate with the spirit of an animal through images and see their responses. Others may wish to communicate telepathically, and hear their words.
When working with your totem, you want to examine its predators, and prey. This gives you information about your totem's adaptability, unique strengths, weaknesses and general nature.
An animal totem is not necessarily a single animal being; it can be, but usually when we refer to the word "totem" we mean the underlying archetypal energy of that spirit – its collective unconscious wisdom and spiritual information. That is what you want to tap into when you call upon your spirit animal totem.
By connecting with these archetypal forces you can begin to understand deeper patterns within your own life and work through them more effectively. You can take action in ways you may have never considered before and see things you would have previously overlooked.
