BUTTERFLY

[LEFT]The butterfly is great admired among American Indians and is a bringer of joy and peace. Cultures all over earth revere its delicate and colorful beauty. Most butterflies live very short lives, only a week or two, except for the Angle Wing and Monarch live about six months. They experience stages of development from egg in the cocoon to caterpillar to adult butterfly.
BUTTERFLY MEDICINE
The short life span and beauty of the butterfly is symbolic of early spiritual growth. Lessons of life will be shown during sometimes difficult formative years and come to light as the butterfly spirit begins to fly. They hold the gift of transformation and soul evolution.
The butterfly is reminiscent of freedom and creativity.
Butterflies have a pair of large compound oval eyes made up of thousands of individual lenses. They can see a single image clearly and are able to perceive ultraviolet wavelengths of light. This suggests clairvoyant abilities for those that hold this totem.
The antennae of the butterfly has small knobs on each end which is said to play a role in orientation. When one antennae is missing the butterfly will fly in circles unable to find its way. Those with this medicine need to stay consciously connected to spirit at all times in order to arrive at their desired destination.
Butterflies are not very organized, often return to the same flower many times before they realize it, and cannot remember relatives. This trait shows us to be better prepared for life's challenges and relationships.
The butterfly represents the process of transformation and shape shifting. When butterfly shows up, make note of the most important issues confronting you at the moment. What state of change are you at in regard to them?
Butterflies remind us not to take life so seriously. They feed on flowers that they help pollinate, thereby further spreading beauty. They represent the element of air, quickly changing and ever moving, so gracefully. Butterflies are messengers of the moment. They come in a variety of colors. To understand the message that the butterfly holds for you a study of its colors can be helpful.
Whenever an eco system is damaged, butterfly is usually the first to leave. They are especially sensitive to the harmony of earth. If butterfly comes to you in a hurt, trapped or ill way, you are being asked to stop disturbing the natural design of life and to flow with events in a more gentle, natural way.[/LEFT]

  • [LEFT]Divine inspiration [/LEFT]
  • [LEFT]Shapeshifting [/LEFT]
  • [LEFT]Understanding the patterns of illusion [/LEFT]
  • [LEFT]Female energy for the creative force of life [/LEFT]
SPIDER

[LEFT]Grandmother spider is a wise old teacher and weaver of many stories. Her unique tapestry of life offers many paths to the center of oneself and creation. Her medicine speaks of connections and unity of spirit.
SPIDER MEDICINE
Spiders are light, delicate and not hostile to humans unless threatened. To those who require this special of the spider, it teaches us to maintain a gentle and kind nature.
A poisonous spider signifies death and rebirth. As the poison of age and life's perils threaten our life, we use the venom to ward off future attacks or die.
The spider's web connects itself by silky threads to physical objects creating a net creating its home and place for harvesting food. The web reminds us of our connectedness to all things on earth - that we are related to everything in creation. The spokes of the web remind us to build links between ourselves and the Creator and all things.
When the spider appears, it is a sign to connect with the ways of spirit in the ways designed by the Creator.
The eight legs of the spider are unique from other insects who have only six legs. And unlike other insects, their bodies are divided into two parts instead of three. Two represents unity and a union of polarities.
In American Indian tradition, the first dream catcher was made by Grandmother Spider to catch the bad dreams of children. This legend reveals our belief that negative elements of ones life may be screened out if we remember to keep the links between the Creator and ourselves strong and to always remember that all things in creation are one.

WOLF

[LEFT]The wolf has been much misunderstood and maligned in history and is not the vicious intruder of western fairy tales. The wolf is a shy, yet very sociable creature with strong rules of behavior. Fear of the wolf is perhaps born when its eerie howl raises the hackles on our neck and in our souls. Maybe we do not fear the wolf at all, but only the wild nature within ourselves. To American Indians, the wolf is said to be "teacher" medicine. We study wolfs ways of hunting and their social structure. The wolf is associated with the Dog Star, Sirus and some cultures belief humans came from this distant star. Wolf populations are threatened in the lower 48 states, but abundant in Alaska and Canada. Wolf has much to teach us, if only we will listen.
WOLF MEDICINE
Wolves live in a communal structure like humans. The Alpha male and female lead a strict social order. Next in the order are Beta wolves who do not breed and serve as nursemaids for pups of the pack. The Omega wolf is at the bottom rung and is the 'scapegoat' in situations when the pack is being attacked. Often the Omega wolf is forced not to eat when food is scarce. If wolf has entered the forest of your mind, it may be to teach you that all things in nature have order amid chaos and to accept your duties in life, whether they be leadership roles or otherwise, with humility and strength.
The wolf spirit teaches us to have balance between your personal needs and those of the family and community. Wolves are absolutely committed and loyal to the pack and find their place within the group. If wolf exhibits these traits, it may mean that you must examine your function within the community and loyalty. It may also be a sign to bring better balance to the varied interests of self, family and community.
The hunting techniques of wolves served as an example for many tribes who copied them. Members of the pack form 'tag teams' who take turns chasing prey to exhaust the prey before themselves. Packs are known to have run over thirty miles a day in pursuit. Cooperation in achieving a common goal is the message conveyed here.
Wolves have developed many ways to communicate by body language and vocally. Facial expressions, tail and ear movements, body posture, teeth bearing, eye squinting and scratching are part of their vocabulary. Vocally, a wide variety of growls, yelps, whines and howls make up a sophisticated system of communication. Wolf language helps the pack to identify and locate its members, establish territorial boundaries, give instruction, request assistance, sound warnings, teach the young, and generally to bring cohesion and unity to the pack. If a wolf or wolves have entered your physic, you are fortunate to have an animal spirit to knows the importance of communication and one that will find many ways to make their messages know to you. This ability to communicate may be a sign to hone your own speaking skills to effectively relate your feelings and ideas in a good way - to pray, sing and dance in praise of the blessings of the Creator.
When a lone wolf is seen the wild it symbolizes freedom. When seen in a pack it represents community. If wolf appears to you alone or in a pack it is asking you to acquire the same within your own life.
The primal and piercing howl of the wolf sometimes is marking their territory boundaries. If you hear a wolf howl it might be telling you to stand your ground and defend your boundaries.
Wolves have great stamina and strength. They do not fight needlessly and often avoid fighting whenever possible. Wolf teaches to know who you are and to develop strength and confidence.
Wolf is associated with the lunar influences and energies that rule psychic perception. They teach us to respect our emotions and face the darkness within.
The wolf is ritualistic. It knows the importance of regular lunar howling ceremonies and daily social rituals designed to communicate needs and express feelings. The message of your wolf spirit may be to honor the forces of spirituality and connect with the life forces of Mother Earth.[/LEFT]

SNAKE

[LEFT]There are 2,267 species of snakes living in the world today. Snakes have essentially the same organs as humans, but they do not have eyelids or ears. Usually, females are larger than males and most can travel three to five miles per hour. Some snakes are born fully formed, while others hatch from eggs and snakes in captivity have lived over thirty years. Snakes are fascinating creatures that deserve respect. Throughout history the snake has had many legends associated with it linking them to creation, fertility and transformation.
SNAKE MEDICINE
The snake has many symbolic meanings among various cultures across the world. In the Middle East, snake is seen as Mother Earth and immortality. To Christians, the snake is portrayed as evil, lust and temptation. In Asia, the snake is the life force awakened. To American Indians the snake is a friend who shares its secrets of the water element. Altogether, the tremendous symbolism placed on the snake makes it a powerful and worthy spirit guide.
Snakes regularly sheds its outer skin as it grows and a new layer of skin develops. Crawling out of its skin is an important aspect of snake medicine because it symbolizes ways we must move away from old and useless habits and thought patterns as we grow spiritually. It symbolizes death and rebirth.
A snake does not have ears or eardrums but instead has small bones in its head that conduct low frequency vibrations that travel through the earth. Among all creatures of earth, the snake is best equipped to hear the heart-beat, or magnetic resonance of Mother Earth and is therefore able to continually communicate with and be in perfect harmony or balance with Mother Earth.
As a symbol of renewal and transmutation, land snakes do not require food to generate body heat and they lay motionless and soundless against the earth absorbing the heat of the sun and the earth. To those lives to whom the snake slithers into, be aware of its subtle and silent messages. Before this may be possible, it is necessary to become balanced in your path and ground yourself to Mother Earth and all of its elements.
Just before the snake begins to shed its skin, its eyes turn pale blue or opaque giving it a trance-like appearance as if the snake is looking right through you. Snake spirit guides teach ways to look into the hearts of others and find ways to help them along their spiritual paths. [/LEFT]

The Badger
Image
Badger medicine is a tough one to carry. If it is not balanced with deer, it can result in a sad, lonely and alone life - but badger would never admit it.
Badger out of control is feared and hated. He is the dictator. He speaks with no concern for the feelings of others. He is concerned only with his personal views and his own welfare. If badger perceives a wrong has been done him, he will follow you to the ends of the earth to get his revenge. If he gets a grip on you, or gets you cornered, he will tear you to shreds. There is no mercy in badger for he cares for no one except himself. Badger is the power monger; the control freak. He is the mark of aggressiveness carried to the extreme.
Why would we even consider learning about badger? There are many people who can use a touch of badger. If you are taken advantage of; if no one appreciates you; if you are the doormat; if you are overly timid and shy; if you are painfully introverted; if you let opportunities pass you by because you are afraid to act, then a spoonful of badger may be just the medicine you need.
A little badger, used wisely, can give you a new outlook and a new respect for yourself. A little more assertiveness to make your views known and considered. The courage to say "no" when enough is enough. Enough boldness to take you out of your shell, make new friends and mingle more with those who share your views. The strength to act on something that is important to you. The self-assurance to seize an opportunity you really want, and the self-confidence to make changes that are in your best interests. Badger can be your friend; just keep him in balance. Control him. Use him for your benefit.

The badger is a powerful digger; therefore its power gives one the ability to see beneath the surface of things.

The badger's jaws are exceedingly strong; thus giving powerful expression to those who carry such a totem. If you have Badger as an animal totem, you carry the powerful gift of word and should consider serving as a storyteller.

Although the badger is not a large animal, it is extremely strong;
with powerful claws on its forefeet. Larger creatures many times its size
will give the badger a wide berth.

Badger~Courage, aggressive, healer, having problems relating to others, and energy conduit.

Badger: Courage, aggression, healer, energy conduit, earth knowledge, having problems relating to others.

Badger: The Power of Aggression

The Zuni consider the badger the younger brother to the bear, respecting
his strength and his stout heart, but criticizing him for what they assess as
a much weaker will than that of his burly, big brother. The Zuni also envision
the badger as the guardian of the South, quite likely due to the animal's ruddy coat, with its evenly marked black-and-white stripes, thus suggesting a being that stands between night and day, with the color of summer.

Other Native American tribes saw the badgers incredible prowess at burrowing through the earth as symbolic of the newborn child pushing its way through the womb. Mothers soon to deliver prized badger paw talismans as helpers to guide them through a brief period of labor.

Perhaps because of his supposed knowledge of the subsurface world, the
Pueblo saw the badger as a great medicine chief, conversant with all manner
of herbs, seeds, and the mysteries of plants.

The Japanese also respect the badger's strength, but most often cast him in
a very negative role as a dangerous creature capable of violent acts. The badger is also perceived as a favorite form assumed by shape-shifting dark magicians.

The badger was on the Hebrews' list of unclean animals, but its skin was used for sandals.

As a totem guardian, the badger will be a strong protector and ally that will keep dark energies at bay. Because of its rather aggressive nature, however, you must be certain that you remain balanced in temperament and judgment so that violent responses to difficult situations are never encouraged.

[CENTER]WASP[/CENTER]

Wasps are of the same genus as bees.
As such, symbolic meaning of wasps deal with:
  • order
  • construction
  • community
  • involvement
  • development
  • progress
  • team-work
  • productivity
African traditions, the wasp is a symbol of evolution, and control over our life circumstances.
The Wasp asks us these questions when it comes into our lives:
“Are all my affairs in order?”
“Am I aligning myself with my goals?”
“Am I procrastinating about something?”
“Am I keeping myself from reaching my highest potential?”
“Am I allowing my progress to be held back by others?”

I have always been drawn to wolves, ever since I was very little. In fact, I had "wolf friends" as I called them, which were basically an imaginary pack of wolves that went everywhere with me. Hehe.
I also feel connected to hawks. My grandfather was Cree/Mohawk and though he died when I was like 3, I think sometimes he sends hawks around me. If that makes any sense.

[CENTER]Otters awaken curiosity. They remind us that everything is interesting
if we look at it from the right angle.
The Otter totem is connected to
the primal feminine energies of life:
the elements of both Earth and Water are present in Otter medicine.
With an Otter totem, you must remember the beauty of a balanced female side,
creating a space for others to enter our lives without preconceptions or suspicions.
Otter teaches that balanced female energy is not catty or jealous,
but it is sisterhood and sharing with others.
Otter expresses joy for others.
Remember that all of us, both men and women, have a feminine side.
If an Otter has entered your life, it may be time to find some play time
in your life, to awaken your inner child.
Allow events to unfold naturally in your life. Be careful not to hang on the material things
in your life that bind you or become a burden.
Become Otter and move gently into the river of life.[/CENTER]

OTTER

[LEFT]There are thirteen species of otters divided into two living environments, the river and sea. Otters grow to be around four feet long and males weigh over sixty-five pound and the female over forty-five pounds. Their hearing is excellent and they can see very well under water. Otters have flipper-like hind feet for propulsion and their whiskers can sense movement in the water. The retracting claws on the front paws are cat-like and otters have an excellent sense of touch. The otter has a long stream-lined body, small ears and a broad muzzle. Their extremely thick fur that keeps them insulated in frigid waters. They are the one of the very few animal known to use tools.
OTTER MEDICINE
As otters are very territorial they tend to live alone. This medicine teaches independence and self-reliance for our needs.
Otters are very playful and are frequently seen They are often seen floating on their backs with their paws extended out of the water soaking up sunrays, sliding on their bellies playfully, performing water acrobatics or chattering to their neighbors. Their relaxed and happy attitude about life reminds those to whom the otter spirit splashes to laugh and enjoy life to its fullest.
Otters are curious about everything in their domain. They will touch or sniff every object within sight. No stone, plant, critter or other object will escape the otter's appetite to know, "who or what are you?". This special medicine reminds us to always look at situations, events and people from different angles; to always be open to new challenges.
Otters are agile and fast in the water. Water is the element of emotional energy in man. Otter spirit teaches us how to swim through problems and emotional upheavals of life with ease.
Otters are very good parents and nurture their offspring longer than most marine mammals. The relish the company of their neighbors Otter medicine emphasizes nurturing energies within us and the creative and interactive, comforting associations with other beings.
The otter likes to talk and they are often heard chatting away to anyone or anything within earshot. When frightened their calls take on an eerie piercing sound similar to a baby screaming. They have few natural enemies and are not afraid of humans. If the otter swims into your life the message may be to rid yourself of fret, worry and pain. Enjoy the blessings Creator has provided and follow the otters lead. [/LEFT]

Otter (Cù-dubh or Dòbhran): These animals were considered very magickal by the Celts. During the voyages of Maelduine, Brendan and others, these traveling Celts were met by helpful otters.

OWL

[LEFT]There are about 135 species of owl across the world and 18 are found in North America. The owl is a silent flyer, extraordinary vision and the best hearing of any bird in the world. Grandmother Owls can rotate their heads three- quarters of the way around rather quickly giving the illusion of a complete turn. All owls are predatory and some owls hunt during the day but most hunt at night. Some species, like the Screech Owl and the Great Horned Owl, live in one place year round; others, like the Saw-whet Owl and the Short-Eared Owl and the Burrowing Owl will travel long distances. It is illegal to capture or kill an owl in the United States. Contrary to superstition, owls pose no threat to humans, physically or spiritually.
OWL MEDICINE
The secretive habits of the owl, its quiet flight and various calls from whistles, screeches and hoots, have made them objects of fear and superstition. The Creator made no evil creatures. Individuals to whom the owl speaks are very fortunate because messages of the owl are deep, far reaching and complex.
The varied and remarkable abilities of Grandmother Owl to fly silently and to quietly move from place to place offer lessons of stealth and poise to our every day lives.
The wise appearance from their large eyes, stout bodies teaches those people who hear the call of the owl to find deeper reasoning in relationships and events.
The vision and hearing of Grandmother Owl is very powerful. Those with this medicine are can be gifted with the ability to see into the human psychic and become clairvoyant listeners. Owl often visits those who are teachers, therapists and counselors.
Because most owls are active between dusk and dawn, they are sometimes called 'Night Eagles, or messengers from the dark side. If Grandmother Owl comes and sits nearby, it may indicate a need to peer into the darkness and face our fears. Or, a great mystery that is unfolding will be revealed by looking deeper in to its meaning.
Grandmother Owl is often thought to come to those who need to let go of some part of their life that is no longer needed.
As a guide, the owl teaches us to see and hear past shadows, beyond fear and darkness, though to the other side that promises light, happiness and knowledge. [/LEFT]

Hey Magdalene I just want to share a little story with you, as a thanks, for teaching me about contacting animal totems. It must be working!!

Ever since I've posted in here, I've thought occassionaly about my animal totems. Usually when I'm driving, or looking outside, I'll ask the universe to show me an animal guide. Like I've told you before I've seen quite a lot of birds. I was driving to work a few days ago and thought, "Hmm I've seen a lot of blackbirds lately, they must be one of my guides." And low and behold, literally 10 seconds later, I came around a turn... I saw a whole swarm of black birds walking around the ground and the road, it must of been at least 50 birds. I slowed down but as my car reached the mob, they all started flying past, zooming right by my windshield!! For the next 20 seconds I felt like I was in a bird tunnel... I just saw all these black birds flying right around my car right in front of me!! It was really a pretty sight! And then, the next day I took a different way to work, and I was thinking about all those birds I had seen. About 2 minutes later i saw a HUGE swarm of birds, at least 200. Just sitting there in someone's yard, and i mean the WHOLE yard was covered with birds, a big black blob of birds! It was the most birds I've seen on the ground in my whole life! So now I'm going to reread what you posted about blackbirds and see how that could be influencing my life right now. =)

You should really try to call on them again and see if you may be able to start seeing them again. :)

The hawk is for sure a messenger! I have no doubt that it's your grandfather! What a wonderful connection you have! I am very glad to do this for you. much love to you!!!

Wolf (Madadh-alluidh): The wolf is a cunning, intelligent creature, capable of out-thinking hunters. It can teach you how to read the signs of Nature in everything, how to pass by danger invisibly, how to outwit those who wish you harm, and how to fight when needed. Sometimes the world, seen on a journey, will lead you to a spiritual teacher and guide.


WOLF

[LEFT]The wolf has been much misunderstood and maligned in history and is not the vicious intruder of western fairy tales. The wolf is a shy, yet very sociable creature with strong rules of behavior. Fear of the wolf is perhaps born when its eerie howl raises the hackles on our neck and in our souls. Maybe we do not fear the wolf at all, but only the wild nature within ourselves. To American Indians, the wolf is said to be "teacher" medicine. We study wolfs ways of hunting and their social structure. The wolf is associated with the Dog Star, Sirus and some cultures belief humans came from this distant star. Wolf populations are threatened in the lower 48 states, but abundant in Alaska and Canada. Wolf has much to teach us, if only we will listen.
WOLF MEDICINE
Wolves live in a communal structure like humans. The Alpha male and female lead a strict social order. Next in the order are Beta wolves who do not breed and serve as nursemaids for pups of the pack. The Omega wolf is at the bottom rung and is the 'scapegoat' in situations when the pack is being attacked. Often the Omega wolf is forced not to eat when food is scarce. If wolf has entered the forest of your mind, it may be to teach you that all things in nature have order amid chaos and to accept your duties in life, whether they be leadership roles or otherwise, with humility and strength.
The wolf spirit teaches us to have balance between your personal needs and those of the family and community. Wolves are absolutely committed and loyal to the pack and find their place within the group. If wolf exhibits these traits, it may mean that you must examine your function within the community and loyalty. It may also be a sign to bring better balance to the varied interests of self, family and community.
The hunting techniques of wolves served as an example for many tribes who copied them. Members of the pack form 'tag teams' who take turns chasing prey to exhaust the prey before themselves. Packs are known to have run over thirty miles a day in pursuit. Cooperation in achieving a common goal is the message conveyed here.
Wolves have developed many ways to communicate by body language and vocally. Facial expressions, tail and ear movements, body posture, teeth bearing, eye squinting and scratching are part of their vocabulary. Vocally, a wide variety of growls, yelps, whines and howls make up a sophisticated system of communication. Wolf language helps the pack to identify and locate its members, establish territorial boundaries, give instruction, request assistance, sound warnings, teach the young, and generally to bring cohesion and unity to the pack. If a wolf or wolves have entered your physic, you are fortunate to have an animal spirit to knows the importance of communication and one that will find many ways to make their messages know to you. This ability to communicate may be a sign to hone your own speaking skills to effectively relate your feelings and ideas in a good way - to pray, sing and dance in praise of the blessings of the Creator.
When a lone wolf is seen the wild it symbolizes freedom. When seen in a pack it represents community. If wolf appears to you alone or in a pack it is asking you to acquire the same within your own life.
The primal and piercing howl of the wolf sometimes is marking their territory boundaries. If you hear a wolf howl it might be telling you to stand your ground and defend your boundaries.
Wolves have great stamina and strength. They do not fight needlessly and often avoid fighting whenever possible. Wolf teaches to know who you are and to develop strength and confidence.
Wolf is associated with the lunar influences and energies that rule psychic perception. They teach us to respect our emotions and face the darkness within. [/LEFT]

Medicine: Shapeshifting

Regeneration Adaptation Growth
Guardianship Loyalty
Mystic

Transformation & Regeneration
As the cub first enters the physical plane, her eyes are frozen shut and she is, in essence, blind. Yet as she matures, her eyes open, revealing a splendid new world to explore and investigate As her eyes turn from the gray-blue hue of youth and innocence, to yellow/gold, burning with the inner fire of experience, she becomes a fuller extension of all that she is capable of being. She is ever changing, transforming herself throughout her cycle of life, attune with the process of renewal.
***Often, the soul who has inherited the Gray Wolf as their Power Totem, is a soul who is constantly transforming themselves, improving themselves as they encounter the lessons and challenges of Life.***

Change & Growth
The Gray Wolf is constantly presented with change and opportunities for growth. Despite all that is thrown in the Path of the Wolf however, he adapts himself to change. To understand this, one need only look at the environment the Gray Wolf inhabits.
Currently, there are a number of gray wolves that were reintroduced in Yellowstone National Park in an attempt to bring natural balance and order back to the area. The region covers a portion of NorthWestern Wyoming and extends partially into the southern tip of Montana.
The fluctuation in season where the Gray Wolf dwells, necessitates that he adapt to change as the warm, golden days of summer when prey is plentiful and the whole pack can be fed quite easily, is replaced with the shortened days of Autumn. The Wolf begins to grow his winter coat in preparation for the long, cold months of winter which loom over the distant horizon of red and yellow leaves. Then, winter arrives. The cold breath of the North winds blow across the forest and plains, blanketing everything for a time in snow that glitters like miniature crystals sprinkled by a Divine hand. Gray Wolf searches for food with which to sustain the Pack, and always the elements, the threat of starvation, keep him on the move. And then it is Spring once more and the welcome rays of the Sun penetrate the frozen landscape, encouraging new life.
***It is said that at the door of each of the Four Winds, a wolf keeps
silent vigil, each bringing change to the life of those who walk the Good
Red Road, and with the change, a lesson unique to that Wind.
Gray Wolf is the Wolf who stands at the Western Door. The winds of change will gently flow through the life of the Gray Wolf Soul, stirring her to greet the change with the knowledge of the lessons that such transitional times will herald. Gray Wolf Soul understands that Change is merely Growth, an essential part of Life, and thus, embraces Change easily.
The essence of the West Wind is Adaptation to Change through the Quest Within. This is the land of ~Wakan Tanka~ where the individual journeys within to divine the mysteries of Soul`s Purpose in order to integrate personality with spirit. Gray Wolf Totem stands on the cliff of evermore gazing across the misty chasm of tomorrow in quiet contemplation. She doesn`t strain to see what is not yet visible on the other side, merely acknowledges that the changes will surely take place, and that the choices she makes, will fashion the bridge across***

Guardianship
The complex social structure of the Wolfpack is a society that is formed with the primary intent of Survival of All. Therefore, all pack members take guardianship of one another, assisting in the hunting and killing of prey so that the pack can be fed, huddling together to provide warmth to the very old, young or ill when the cold settles in, and guardianship in watching over the cubs of the Pack, as all members participate in the rearing and educating of the young. ***The Individual with the Totem of Gray Wolf, understands the importance of protecting and nurturing Life in all of its varied and brilliant forms. He is the Soul that desires to be of service to others and thus enters a profession which will be in alignment with these principles. She is the soul who desires to nurture the spark of soul awareness in the other members of her society, so as to ensure the survival of the species.In whatever form this urge of Guardianship manifests itself, the Gray Wolf Totem will always strive to be of Benefit to you.

Hawk (Seabhag): Celtic oral tradition lists the oldest animal as the hawk of Achill. As with other birds, the hawk is a messenger between the Otherworlds and this world. However, it is of greater skill and strength than other birds. It symbolizes clear-sightedness and far-memory. If you hear a hawk cry during a journey, be alert to upcoming situations that need boldness and decisiveness to keep from being thrown off balance.

Latent Power
When observing the Red Tailed Hawk, the most distinguishing characteristics and attributes of these splendid birds of prey, are their eyesight, sharp talons that adorn their feet, and their vibrant red tail feathers. These are the very characteristics that reflect the Latent Power of this member of the Hawk family.
For purposes of examining the keyword of ~Latent Power,~ we begin with the Hawk`s sharp talons. In the wild, a Hawk`s talons are instruments of deadly precision. The talons will grasp their prey in a merciless grip while the beak rips and shreds in the quest for survival.
The second component to observe in the Red Tailed Hawk as it pertains to the key word of ~Latent Power,~ are the vibrant red tail feathers of the mature Hawk. These feathers are a Gift of maturation, and the power and energy that they represent for the two-legged with this raptor as a Primary Totem is very significant.
***For the two-legged beside whom Red Tail Hawk flies, a sharp mind will be evident, and these souls will possess the ability to perceive the subtlest of nuances that might escape other less "observant" individuals. Although this may be a tremendous Gift in assisting the Red Hawk Soul in the business world (and less ~intimate~ arenas of their daily Life), this same gift of communication and sharp intellect can also be used as a weapon, and words may become like the sharp beak and unrelenting talons of their Totem when these individuals are either attacked, or if they are operating from an unintegrated Personality Center.
There may be situations and circumstances when there is a need for the type of more ~direct~ speech that the Red Hawk Soul is capable of, and in those circumstances, the use of this inherent talent serves the individual well. Yet part of the evolutionary process for the Red Tailed Hawk individual, is in learning how to master this gift and wield its great power with conscious awareness, ever-mindful of its potential for either great insight, or great damage. When the Red Hawk Soul is then operating from such Higher Intent, these are the natural born investigators, psychics, attorneys and observers that deploy their acumen for insight and direct speech in a constructive, rather than destructive, manner.
Looking at the next component in understanding the Red Tailed Hawk`s Power, are the beautiful red tail feathers which distinguish this Hawk from other cousins. This Hawk does not receive his/her red feathers until a sufficient level of maturation has been achieved. When looking to the human beside whom Red Hawk flies, this is quite significant as well, for it indicates that the Red Feathers are not easily given, and must instead be "earned."
When witnessed in Nature, the color Red represents Power, Energy, and the Kundalini. The Kundalini is the Force that directs the flow of all other energy fields within the physical body. This Force lies dormant within each of us when we take up the ~Robe of Physical Life, and is thought to lie coiled at the ~base chakra~ (located near the base of the spine) and referred to as the ~Serpent Power.~ There the Power lies sleeping until it is awakened via the Soul who begins the journey on the road of spiritual discovery and who is consciously acknowledging and incorporating their Life Lessons.
Some envision the Kundalini as a powerful sexual energy, yet to view it thus is to limit the true breadth and power of this fundamental energy, for it is then keeping that energy coiled at the base chakra (sexual center), rather than encouraging it to reach further and higher. At the time the energy is awoken, it begins to rise up through the other six energy centers (chakras). As it passes through each of these chakras, the lessons, issues and areas of our lives which are symbolized and or ~governed~ by these energy centers, are opened for our acknowledgment through the process of Conscious Awareness.


P.S. I have more for you, I just have to go to town. So I'll keep it coming. Much love!

My main one is definetely the bat.
Image
they're so cute! As a child i've always had sensitive ears and still kind of do now. I was always interested in insects and loved night time. Bats really do help us during the summer time, keeping mosquito populations in check. Plus, the idea of being able to fly, at night it's just beautiful. Sure, bats are a little wierd looking, but they're very special in their own way. They're the side of me that wants to soar with the night and be free, singing in an inaudibly high pitch.

I also went through a long cat phase, as a child i'd always walk around on all fours, and one time my dad even asked me to stop it for a little while! XD.
Cats, are independent, graceful, inquisitive and pretty.
Image
They're the side of me that wants to be sneaky, and leap from here to there. they're the part of me that's a bit of a flirt, and wants to play with my enemies, and be cute for my friends.

There's also crows. They're just really cool. they remind me of a mob, but a sophisticated mob, that does the job of flying around eating worms, roadkill and human leftover food with a sort of royal pride. They remind me of teamwork, and community spirit, and they're pretty smart birds too. It seems, that no matter how much you warm to them, they usually only come within 10 feet of you. They've got like this. 10 ft radius rule of something... heheh. But it's only if you look at them, If you're walking away from them, or not looking at them and drop some food for them they'll fly right up behind you and snatch it. :) They also speak up when something's wrong, so I guess you could say they're quite outspoken.
Image
I also love rats, they're like resourcefulness, and survivors. They're tough and cute at the same time. They're very quick too. They're the part of me that wants to recycle, and waste nothing like nature intended. They scurry around from here to there and are always hunting for fod at night. They're capable of living in very cramped housing. They've also got cool beady black eyes. ^^

ECHIDNA
In the medicine wheel, the Echidna takes the place of an innocent child. Its disposition is friendly and loving; it is never the instigator of trouble. If it happens to be attacked by another animal, which rarely occurs, its spines will protect it. The teaching of the Echidna embraces faith and trust. Since faith is said to move mountains, this is a very significant power to have. This animal teaches us to be open, to discover new miracles every day, and to free ourselves from the serious routine world of adults. The Echidna has held on to a child-like sense of wonder and its trust in the divine plan where everything will turn out all right. Its friendliness and openness can unlock the hearts of others in order to share love and joy.

The Echidna
The echidna resembles the hedge hog and the porcupine in that they are covered by sharp spines. They can survive in a vast range of climates and habitat. They have pointy snouts and extremely long sticky tongues to catch ants and termites. Echidnas have no fixed home and can be found in a variety of shelters. Those with this totem will feel at home wherever they are and often live in unusual dwellings.
This animal is an ancient creature with a unique and well developed brain. The echidna has been around longer than humans. Because of its long life span it is known as the keeper of ancient secrets. It holds the teachings of longevity and renewal.
When the echidna feels threatened it can run away on its short stubby legs, or curl itself into a ball protecting its soft underbelly. They can burrow straight down below the surface of the soil showing only its spines along its back to their predator. This line of defense is symbolic for those with this totem. It reminds you to watch your back in unknown or uncomfortable situations. Sometimes echidna medicine people will actually feel a tingling sensation running up their backbone when danger is near.
Echidnas are solitary in their habits but mutually tolerable. They have a single minded attitude and understand the value of rooting around to find solutions to life's questions. Those with this totem are investigative and inquisitive and make excellent detectives. They have good memories and are able to retain information. The tip of the echidnas nose is very sensitive to electrical signals from an insects body. Since the echidna has no teeth it crushes insects between horny pads in its mouth. Echidna medicine people are able to detect subtle electrical impulses originating from the earth as well as the sky. They can channel stronger electrical currents through their body without damaging their nervous system. This gives them the ability to communicate with the spirit realm and extraterrestrial beings more efficiently. The echidna holds many secrets. When it appears in your life those secrets are about to be revealed to you.

Short-beaked Echidnas feature in the animistic culture of Indigenous Australians, including their visual arts and stories. The species was a totem for some groups, including the Noongar people from Western Australia, who called the animal the Nyingarn. Many groups have myths about the animal; one myth explains that it was created when a group of hungry, young men went hunting at night and stumbled across a wombat. They threw spears at the wombat, but lost sight of it in the darkness. The wombat adapted the spears as its own defense and turned into an Echidna. Another story tells of a greedy man that kept food from his tribe; warriors speared him and he crawled away into the bushes, where he was turned into an Echidna, the spears becoming his spines.

The Short-beaked Echidna is an iconic animal in contemporary Australia. It appears on the Australianfive-cent piece (the smallest denomination) and on a $200 commemorative coin released in 1992. The Short-beaked Echidna has been included in several postal issues: it was one of four native species to appear on Australian postage stamps in 1974, where it was the 25 cent stamp; it appeared on a 37 cent stamp in 1987, and again in 1992 when it was on the 35 cent stamp. The anthropomorphic Echidna Millie was a mascot for the 2000 Summer Olympics.

November is the Month of the Echidna[/CENTER]

Many star patterns have changed since the Big Drought. All the animals were thirsty and water was in short supply. Everyone believed Echidna had a secret store of water and was keeping it all for himself but no one actually knew where the storage was located. Bimba-towera, the finch was told by his elders to follow Echidna wherever he went, to find the location of the hidden reservoir. Bimba followed his instructions. Wherever Echidna went, Bimba followed close behind. The wily little anteater knew very well why he was being followed. He said nothing and went about his business, burrowing into the earth with his powerful claws. Soon he buried himself out of sight. Bimba cautiously put his head into the hole to see what was going on, but withdrew as the soil collapsed around him. Bimba returned to the camp and told all the other animals of his failure. Everyone was at a loss to know what to do next. Not one of them was equipped to dig beneath the earth like Echidna. Tiddalick, the frog offered to help. He was a cunning fellow who also wanted to know where Echidna kept his storage of water as he had shrunk from lack of moisture. Tiddalick was much more cunning with his movements than Bimba. He was ideal for the job and so he was chosen. Echidna knew that Tiddalick was up to no good. The frog would sit around in the reeds making out he was minding his own business but spying on Echidna at the same time.
Seizing an opportunity whilst Tiddalick was busily engaged in catching a fly, Echidna headed for his secret waterhole. It was concealed by a large flat stone, which he lifted. He then prepared to lower himself down into the well. In spite of his apparent disinterest, Tiddalick had been watching Echidna's every move. As soon as the stone was removed from the hole, Tiddalick sprang from the reeds in a single bound and dropped headfirst into the hole. Echidna got quite a fright and asked Tiddalick what on earth he was doing in his hole. Tiddalick gave Echidna a scolding, telling him he was cheating on all the other animals, which needed water desperately. By this time, all the animals had arrived, and the first thing they did was have a drink. Then they turned on Echidna and threw him into the thombush. Once all the animals had left. Echidna dragged himself out of the thombush but was never able to remove the spines from his back. Bimba-tower, the finch, spread all the gossip about Echidna around the various camps, but Echidna didn't mind. Actually the animals had done him a favour. No one will ever pick on the spiny anteater, ever again, unless they want 'lots of spiny trouble'.

[LEFT]Echidna Month People [/LEFT]
If you were born in the month of the Echidna, you are a determined individual, very critical, cautious, reserved and cunning. There is a silent watchfulness about you, something unfathomable. You possess a hard, driving power in your work and daily affairs. What you demand from others you can usually do yourself, but you need to be aware of your extremist tendencies: emotions versus intellect and commonsense. Romantic affairs and self-indulgent activities may divert you at some stage of your destiny from your chosen goals. You are by nature too adaptable to those with whom you are thrown in contact. In consequence, you often suffer from the faults of others.
You have quietness and a sense of calm about you, especially in adverse situations. With your ability to communicate with others you will always have power over them, able to sway them in any direction you please? Some people look at you as a selfish, stubborn individual with no feelings. For others, however, at heart you are a great humanitarian, extremely generous, self-motivated and self-sacrificing. You can always be relied upon in an emergency or crisis situation. You are more emotional and loving than others give you credit for. It is only those who have known you over a long period of time who believe and support your every move. There is a certain amount of complexity in your nature due to the emotional and aggressive stimulus of your individuality and the practical side of your personality. Care should be taken in conversation with others. You can easily raise your social flag of injustice when you spot untruths or corruption or when you see people taking liberty with the law or politics. With your strong-willed, self-confident, somewhat direct manner, your temper can rise at the slightest provocation, resulting in disappointment and embarrassment for yourself and others. Your happiness depends on cultivating a good sense of humour. You must resist the tendency to be too cynical, smart, clever or dogmatic in your speech. Your personality and mood are always changeable, despite your ability to feel confident and sure of yourself. One good thing you have to your advantage throughout your destiny is that you will always pull your foot from the door before it slams on your toes.
Care should be taken with money. You are inclined to be extravagant and overgenerous and prefer a lavish lifestyle. Money seems to burn a hole in your pocket, but what you lose on the swings, you pick up on the round a bout. Money will always be drawn to you somewhere, somehow. You would find happiness and success in the following careers or professions: Advertising, sales and marketing, public relations, medicine, investment consultancy, secretarial work, cooking, chef, police, military and government service, the butcher's trade, mechanical engineering, clerical work, the electrician's trade, hotel management, farming, alternative healing, media, theatre, music, astrology, literature or anything that engages your mind. You will be successful in any career you call your own. At some time in your destiny you will have curious reversals of fortune and will be slandered, with false rumours and stories circulated about you.
It will always be a battle of a life for you and you should watch for the unusual, the sudden or unexpected. You may even lead a double life, hold two jobs, run two businesses, have two sources of income. At some stage in your life you will encounter metaphysical subjects, either directly or indirectly, or you may develop your own intuition to the degree that it may be used in writing, painting, poetry, music or design. In most cases you will encounter difficulty in your early years; however, success is guaranteed in your later life through your own willpower and determination. You will always have high principles and a strong sense of humour. Your success and happiness depend on assuring constructive action and expression.

The Short-beaked Echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus), also known as the Spiny Anteater because of its diet of ants andtermites, is one of four living species of echidna. It is the only member of the genus Tachyglossus. The Short-beaked Echidna is covered in fur and spines. It has a distinctive snout and a specialized tongue, which it uses to catch its prey at a great speed. Like the otherextantmonotremes, the Short-beaked Echidna lays eggs; the monotremes are the only group of mammals that do.
The species can be found throughout Australia, where it is the most widespread native mammal, and in coastal and highland regions of southwestern New Guinea, where it is known as the Mungwe in the Daribi and Chimbu languages. It is not threatened with extinction, but human activities, such as hunting, habitat destruction, and the introduction of foreign predatory species and parasites, have reduced the distribution of the Short-beaked Echidna in Australia.

Species of the Tachyglossidae are egg-laying mammals; together with the related family Ornithorhynchidae, they are the only extant monotremes in the world

Reproduction

Image

The underside of a female Short-beaked Echidna; the pouch which carries her eggs is shown in the middle of the abdomen.

The solitary Short-beaked Echidna looks for a mate between May and September; the precise timing of the mating season varies with geographic location. Both males and females give off a strong odour during the mating season. During courtship — observed for the first time in 1989 — males locate and pursue females. Trains of up to ten males may follow a single female in a courtship ritual that may last for up to four weeks; the duration of the courtship period varies with location. In cooler parts of their range, such as Tasmania, females may mate within a few hours of arousal from hibernation.
Before mating, the male smells the female, paying particular attention to the cloaca. The male is often observed to roll the female onto her side and then assumes a similar position so that the two animals are abdomen to abdomen. Each mating results in the production of a single egg, and females are known to mate only once during the breeding season; each mating is successful.
Fertilisation occurs in the oviduct. Gestation takes between 21 and 28 days, during which time the female constructs a nursery burrow. Following the gestation period, a single rubbery-skinned egg between 13 and 17 millimetres in diameter is laid directly into a small, backward-facing pouch that has developed on her abdomen. Ten days after it is laid, the egg hatches within the pouch. The embryo develops an "egg tooth" during incubation, which it uses to tear open the egg; the tooth disappears soon after hatching.
Hatchlings are about 1.5 cm long and weigh between 0.3 and 0.4 grams. After hatching, young Echidnas are known as puggles. Hatchlings attach themselves to their mothers' milk areolae, a specialised patch on the skin that secretes milk (monotremes have no nipples). The way in which puggles drink the milk is not yet known, but they have been observed drinking large amounts during each feeding period, since mothers may leave them unattended in the burrow for between five and ten days. The principal components of the milk are fucosyllactose and saialyllactose. The milk has a high iron content, which gives it a pink colour. Juveniles are eventually ejected from the pouch at around two to three months of age, because of the continuing growth in the length of their spines. Suckling gradually decreases until juveniles are weaned at about six months of age. The duration of lactation is about 200 days, and the young leave the burrow between 180 and 240 days.
The age of sexual maturity is uncertain, but may be four to five years. A twelve-year field study, published in 2003, found that the Short-beaked Echidna reached sexual maturity between five and 12 years of age, and that the frequency of reproduction varies from once every two years to once every six years. The Short-beaked Echidna can live as long as 45 years in the wild.

[quote=Balance;45689]Uh, the only one I know of might be a snake. Now, I have a bit of a phobia about snakes cause I remember being attacked by one when I was younger. Anyone know how to contact your totem animals?[/quote]

There are many ways you can get in touch with your animal totems. FIrst ask them to show themselves to you. And then keep your ears and eyes open to all you see. Notice animals and how they make you feel. Ask to see them in your dreams, and in awake times. It's amazing because once you ask, you will start noticing all of nature in a whole new way. It can offer great help and aid in times of confusion when you may normally not be able to handle something. You can think about animals that have meant something to you your whole life, ones that act like you and your traits. You may think of some right away. Or you may have to wait until they show themselves to you. You can't really pick what one's you want...they pick you. :)
If you look over this whole thread I have posted a lot of info on how you can find your spirit animals and totems. Just look for the posts I posted on this thread. I will add some new ones too. :p
The snake may be one of your shadow animals and that is why you fear them. It could end up being one of your most powerful totems if you overcome your fear and love to trust them. I would be happy to help you gather info on any others that may contact you.
Much love!

Attaining Your Animal Totem

If your shelves are not stocked with objects of art
representing wolves, eagles, cats, horses, elephants,
or any other creature in particular, then perhaps the
simplest method of acquiring a totem animal other than
being born with an animal surname is to accept the
symbol of your birth sign as your spirit helper.

It is, of course, up to those who are born under
those signs to accept or reject the totems that I have
found but remember, you had none before :

Aries, the Ram: March 21 to April 20
Taurus, the Bull: April 21 to May 21
Gemini, the~ Dolphin: May 22 to June 21
Cancer, the Crab: June 22 to July 22
Leo, the Lion: July 23 to August 23
Virgo, the Lamb: August 24 to September 22
Libra, the Owl: September 23 to October 23
Scorpio, the Scorpion: October 24 to November 22
Sagittarius, the Horse: November 23 to December 21
Capricorn, the Goat: December 22 to January 20
Aquarius, the Eagle: January 21 to February 19
Pisces, the Fish: February 20 to March 20

The Native American Zodiac

If you don't feel connected on a spiritual level with
the animal totem provided with your birth date in the
standard zodiacal depictions try blending with your
animal sign from the Native American Zodiac, based on
the Medicine Wheel cosmology interpreted by some
Native Americans, Wabun and the late Sun Bear.

The Red-Tailed Hawk: March 19 to April 19
The Beaver: April 20 to May 20
The Deer: May 21 to June 21
The Brown Flicker: June 22 to July 21
The Sturgeon: July 22 to August 21
The Bear: August 22 to September 22
The Raven: September 23 to October 22
The Snake: October 23 to November 21
The Elk: November 22 to December 21
The Snow Goose: December 22 to January 20
The Otter: January 20 to February 18
The Cougar: February 19 to March 20

The Chinese Zodiac

Exponents of the Chinese Zodiac believe that the year
of a person's birth is the primary factor in the
determining of his or her personality traits, physical
and mental attributes, and the degree of happiness and
success attained throughout that person's lifetime.
The Chinese Zodiac consists of a twelve-year cycle,
each year of which is named after a different animal
totem that imparts distinct characteristics to those
born in a given year. If you have not yet found the
totem animal that truly resonates with your inner
self, perhaps you will be able to claim the animal
sign of your birth year as your spirit helper. (If you
were born before 1936, add twelve to the year you were
born in to determine your year and sign.)

ACCEPTING THE ANIMAL TOTEM OF YOUR PATRON SAINT

Many of the saints of Christendom are identified by an
animal symbol. If you don't feel a rapport with the
animal totem based on your zodiacal sign, perhaps you
may decide that if a particular creature was good

There are two basic aspects to researching your animal
totem: book research and field research. Reading about
animals and their characteristics gives you a good
idea of what kinds of energies those animal totems
might bring into your life. For instance, hummingbirds
bring joy, enthusiasm, and lots of energies, while
ravens bring mystery and a deep sense of humor. You
can read general books or magazines on animals

(National Geographic often has great information) or
you can read books that specifically describe animal
totems, such as "Medicine Cards" by Carson and Sams.
Reading about animals also helps you find out more
about animals that either don't live in your local
area or are extinct (just because an animal species is
no longer in body doesn't mean that its spirit isn't
still around to lend energies and help).

Feminine, Peace, Maternity, Prophecy [CENTER]The dove is the embodiment of maternal instinct.
She is connected to Mother Earth

[CENTER]The voice of the dove is a rain song and brings us hope of a new beginning.
The dove is the totem of "Between Times" and shows us the time of the thinning

Hmm. Many moons ago, I dabbled in shamanism and was surprised to see how many "guides" I collected. A regular zoo. Standing out of the crowd or above the crowd was bear (a huge Kodiak), wolf, cougar, horse (especially a winged Pegasus) and red-tailed hawk. I also share my life with two devoted cats, one of which will spend time staring into my eyes like a puppy, such devotion. Some dogs run up to me or try to...especially one in a campground that came to me like a long-lost friend. His owner was a bit annoyed... I've always loved horses and enjoy drawing and painting them. I've felt cougar while out in the woods, watching me...and have met coyote, fox, deer, goats, bears, snakes and squirrels. Of the birds, I love watching the raptors, eagles and hawks...as well as the diminitive hummingbird. In my dreams, I have carried cats, walked with bears and ridden horses.

I laughed when I read about ravens. I love their voices. When I hike I look for ravens...and they speak to the Celt in me.

And last, but hardly the least, the tiger. I have wholeheartedly embraced my Chinese birth year's representative as my own. I sometimes wear its Chinese symbol above my heart.

For Wapiti and Red Deer, a stag having 14 points is an "imperial", and a stag having 12 points is a "royal". If the antlers deviate from the species' normal antler structure, the deer is considered a non-typical deer.

Stag - Lord of the forest, masculine power of regeneration, giver of bounty, beauty and mystical signs.


The White Dove is often thought of as a separate species but it is actually perhaps the most common color mutation of the Ringneck Dove (Streptopelia risoria).This bird is often confused with the domestic white homing pigeon which is used to release at special occasions (weddings, anniversaries, etc.).

[LEFT]The Dove Totem
The skies will never see a more peaceful and graceful creature than the Dove. This animal has been respected and revered throughout the ages by ancient and modern Indian tribes and their Shaman. These tribes who are so connected to the elements and the Earth understand the true influence these creatures’ posses. They are diplomatic, legendary animals that own many admirable virtues.
The Dove represents the feminine power of giving, prophecy, and the hope a new beginning. The Dove shows and reveals the veils between the spiritual and physical worlds. The Dove shows up in many legends and lore. They were the totem of Aphrodite the Goddess of Love, and they bore the ambrosia from the Goddesses which kept Zeus immortal, they are the symbol of sexual passion in India. The flock of Doves called the “Seven Sisters” in Greece are thought to be the daughters of Aphrodite. Sophia, The Goddess of Wisdom, in the Mediterranean, is said to have descended upon animal vessels as the form of a Dove. In Mexico the Dove is seen as both a Love Goddess and a Madonna. The Hebrew’s see the Dove as a symbol of peace and purity.
It was the Dove which returned to Noah’s Ark to tell all aboard that land was found, in the Dove’s beak was an olive branch, which was the symbol of peace. It is believed that the Dove’s nature is so pure that even Satan himself cannont shape-shift into its form.
Doves, like many species of birds, breed and nest in pairs, they mate for life and build their nests, protect their territory and raise their young with their partners. The males as well as the females produce a milk like substance, called “crop milk” to feed their newborns with. Both parents take responsibility for the hatching and care of their offspring. The males will sit on the eggs during the day while the females take over the task at night. Both take responsibility for the guarding of their nest. The Dove occurs worldwide but their largest variety is in Indo-Malaysia.
The Magnificent Dove Totem possesses the following virtues:
Love, gentleness, new ideas, purity, sexual energy, intimate relationships, creativity, peace, family values, centered calmness, tranquility, support, assistance, new relationships, peaceful transition from difficulty, powers of the feminine, friendship.[/LEFT]

How to Apply Bear's Teachings to Your Life
[img]https://www.extrasensory-perceptions-gui ... d-ball.jpg[/img] Have you been 'doing' rather than 'being' leaving little time for reflection. When we enter the void the place of emptiness and silence we give ourselves the opportunity to be nurtured by simply being one with the universe. Being brave enough to honor that time in ones life where you need to retreat enables great things to be born. After all that same state of nothingness was present before the universe was born. Imagine what can be born within you if you allow yourself the time of hibernation.

[img]https://www.extrasensory-perceptions-gui ... d-ball.jpg[/img] Are you true to your boundaries? Are you assertive when you need to be and playful when you want to be? Could you introduce a little more play time and drop the need to be so serious. Bear cubs are extremely happy being playful as are their parents. They live this balance.[/FONT]

Resistance to Change
Arctic Wolf lives in a land frozen in time where, for three quarters of the year, frigid winds blow across the tundra, creating landscapes of sculpted ice. Here, all life holds its breath while awaiting longer days that will bring the sun to gently bathe all in it's golden light, coaxing the emergence of new life to dance for awhile in its brilliant rays. Walking across these bridges and valleys of glimmering snow, the Arctic Wolf, thick white coat ruffled in the frosty breath of the Northern wind, is in a state of contented ~Oneness~ with his surroundings.
***It is said that at the door of each of the Four Winds, a wolf keeps silent vigil, each bringing change to the life of those who walk the Good Red Road and with the change, a lesson unique to that Wind.
The Arctic Wolf is the Wolf of the North Winds. He stands quietly in rigid determination, unyielding at times, much as the barren landscapes of his home appear to resist the beginning of Spring. She is a soul that is comfortable with her surroundings and therefore sees no "reason" to change.
Yet the promise of the North Wind is Wisdom unfolding through gratitude and acknowledgment. This is the Direction in which Wisdom is sifted from the sands of experience and then fashioned into a Red staff of Manifesting that wields personal potential. Therefore, if White Wolf Soul can accept change when it appears, yet remain true to his/her values, then the higher vibration of Wisdom and Truth can emerge from beneath stubborn resistance like shoots of sweet summer grass bursting forth from a blanket of winters snow. Thus, Personal Power can be embraced, understood and ultimately, the souls individual potential manifested.***

Resilience
In a climate in which very little life can exist, Arctic Wolf thrives. Drifts of snow gather in intricate patterns and shapes, castles of frozen snow glittering in the brilliant light. Wind, cold enough to freeze exposed flesh, passes nearly unnoticed by Arctic Wolf as he roams the blinding white expanse of his territory, thick white fur keeping him well insulated . . . Mother Earth has prepared him well.
***The individual with Arctic Wolf as their Power Totem is one who is capable of withstanding numerous challenges and setbacks, only to emerge stronger than before. It is little wonder that these souls will often face adversity in their lives in order to build the resilience with which to overcome obstacles? Paradoxically, they are also gentle souls with a great deal of emotional sensitivity . . . and this is the area in which they are likely to encounter their greatest lessons. Yet by calling upon the inner strength and resilience of the Arctic Wolf, they can triumph and raise their heads with gratitude to the loving rays of the Sun.***

Stamina
The Arctic lands stretch for miles, blinding white expanses that demand respect of all who dwell there. Upon this vista of pristine white, the Arctic Wolf roams his territory in search of food, a mate or any encroaching threat and will travel up to twenty miles a day, or more, to perform his tasks.
To withstand the harshness of the unrelenting winds, the brutality of an unforgiving and bitterly cold climate, and to do this while traversing many miles, the Arctic Wolf has been engineered with tremendous stamina to fulfill her role in Nature.
***Arctic Wolf soul is an individual who is capable of performing nearly miraculous bouts of stamina that would weary other souls as she travels the good Red Road.
He possesses within him the ability to push his body and mind to the limits, and in fact, can appear to even derive pleasure from doing so. With each new goal that has been met, Arctic Wolf individual will then set his/her sights on the next task at hand. Preferably the new goal will be even more challenging than the one just completed, as this engenders the ~acknowledgment~ within their own reasoning that they are ~worthy~ of that which has been given to them, yet the truth of the matter is that anything they have received, has been honestly won.***

RAVEN

[LEFT]Ravens are the largest songbird in North America. Raven are often referred to by some indigenous tribes as the 'secret keepers' and are the subject of many stories. Their ebony black color is sometimes associated with darkness. Ravens are very intelligent and are able mimic the sounds other birds and can squawk out some human words. Ravens are found in many different regions and climates.
RAVEN MEDICINE
The raven spirit guide is not chosen by those who seek its wisdom. The raven only comes to those to whom it may speak in private and share its secrets with the knowledge its mysteries will be well guarded by one who already possesses wisdom.
The raven is known as the 'Secret Keeper by some native tribes because of their way of silently perching near people and 'listening' to conversations then flying away in a flutter shrieking an eerie sound or mimicking a human word. Because of their inky black color they are linked to a place where fear and secrets are kept.
When sun shines on the ravens shiny body it sometimes reflects many colors is therefore sometimes said it has the ability to transform itself, especially when it makes the call of another species. If the raven is seen in dreams or visions it may mean significant changes are about to take place.
Ravens are intelligent and can be seen in the wild 'instructing' other birds and animals. From the raven we may learn ways to become better teachers and understand the languages of many.
Regardless of common European belief, the raven is not an omen of death and should never be feared as its messages are those that can benefit the listener. The Creator did not make any evil creatures on Mother Earth.
Because of ravens ability to make a variety of sounds and high pitched vibrations are known to alter consciousness, the raven is sometimes credited with the ability to transform, move into other dimensions or to shape shift. We may expect frequent changes if the raven is perched on your shoulder. [/LEFT]

Ravens are common characters in the traditional narratives and mythology around the world, notably a part of North American, Siberian, and Norse mythology. Besides being the representative spirit of actual ravens, he is often depicted as a trickster or culture hero figure, or even as the creator of human beings.

Raven creates the world

A raven story from the Puget Sound region describes the "Raven" as having originally lived in the land of spirits (literally bird land) that existed before the world of humans. One day the Raven became so bored with bird land that he flew away, carrying a stone in his beak. When the Raven became tired of carrying the stone and dropped it, the stone fell into the ocean and expanded until it formed the world in which humans now live.
In the creator role, and in the Raven's role as the totem and ancestor of one of the four northwest clan houses, the Raven is often addressed as Grandfather Raven. It is not clear whether this form of address is intended to refer to a creator Raven who is different from the trickster Raven, or if it is just a vain attempt to encourage the trickster spirit to act respectably.
Bill Reid created the sculpture of The Raven and The First Men depicting a scene from a Haida myth that unifies the Raven as both the trickster and the creator. According to this myth, the raven who was both bored and well fed, found and freed some creatures trapped in a clam. These scared and timid beings were the first men of the world, and they were coaxed out of the clam shell by the raven. Soon the raven was bored with these creatures and planned to return them to their shell. Instead, the raven decided to search for the female counterparts of these male beings. The raven found some female humans trapped in a chiton, freed them, and was entertained as the two sexes met and began to interact. The raven, always known as a trickster, was responsible for the pairing of humans and felt very protective of the them. With the Raven perceived as the creator, many Haida myths and legends often suggest the raven as a provider to mankind.

Raven steals the sun

This is an ancient story told on Puget Sound and includes how Raven helped to bring the Sun, Moon, Stars, Fresh Water, and Fire to the world.
Long ago, near the beginning of the world, Gray Eagle was the guardian of the Sun, Moon and Stars, of fresh water, and of fire. Gray Eagle hated people so much that he kept these things hidden. People lived in darkness, without fire and without fresh water.
Gray Eagle had a beautiful daughter, and Raven fell in love with her. At that time Raven was a handsome young man. He was a snow-white bird, and as a such, he pleased Gray Eagle's daughter. She invited him to her father's longhouse.
When Raven saw the Sun, Moon and stars, and fresh water hanging on the sides of Eagle's lodge, he knew what he should do. He watched for his chance to seize them when no one was looking. He stole all of them, and a brand of fire also, and flew out of the longhouse through the smoke hole. As soon as Raven got outside he hung the Sun up in the sky. It made so much light that he was able to fly far out to an island in the middle of the ocean. When the Sun set, he fastened the Moon up in the sky and hung the stars around in different places. By this new light he kept on flying, carrying with him the fresh water and the brand of fire he had stolen.
He flew back over the land. When he had reached the right place, he dropped all the water he had stolen. It fell to the ground and there became the source of all the fresh-water streams and lakes in the world. Then Raven flew on, holding the brand of fire in his bill. The smoke from the fire blew back over his white feathers and made them black. When his bill began to burn, he had to drop the firebrand. It struck rocks and hid itself within them. That is why, if you strike two stones together, sparks of fire will drop out.
Raven's feathers never became white again after they were blackened by the smoke from the firebrand. That is why Raven is now a black bird.

Norse mythology

An illustration from an 18th century Icelandic manuscript depicting Huginn and Muninn sitting on the shoulders of Odin.

In Norse mythology, Odin has two pet ravens Hugin and Munin serving as his eyes and ears - Hugin being referred to as thought and Muninn as memory. Every day the ravens fly out from Hliðskjálf and bring Odin news from Midgard.

Celtic mythology

In Irish mythology ravens are associated with warfare and the battleground in the figures of Badb and Morrígan. Welsh mythology features Bran the Blessed, whose name means "raven" or "crow". He is depicted as giant and the King of the Britons in tale known as the Second Branch of the Mabinogi. Several other characters in Welsh mythology share his name, and ravens figure prominently in the 12th or 13th century text The Dream of Rhonabwy, as the army of King Arthur's knight Owain.
There is a story that England will fall if ever the ravens abandon the Tower of London. Bran the Blessed is associated with the Tower of London in the Welsh Triads, which might be the origin of the story.

Wolves and Indigos.

Wolves and Indigos.

[INDENT][INDENT]:p I have noticed that almost every indigo has a wolf as a spirit animal. I thought that was very interesting and exciting. My best friend and I who both are indigos found out that we were both wolves, and I thought how perfect that matched with indigos in general. Once I saw how many of you have them as well I thought that was very interesting and it made me want to find much more wolf info. I will be working on this soon. Here is what I could get for today. I love you all. It's so cool to see the wolf pack, it'll be great to see what we all do in the future. [/INDENT]


[INDENT]Those wishing to work with the energy and magic of the wolf should first learn of about their spiritual purpose. Each wolf comes to this plane of existence with a special gift of knowledge, just as we humans do. But unlike us, they (and most animals in the universe) are much better adapted to living within the balance of nature and with the flow of nature's energy. To work with the wolf, one needs to understand how the universal energy is connected to each "type" of wolf and move forward from there. The following is a brief explanation of this concept of magick. [/INDENT]

[INDENT]Wolves are considered by many to be the highest animal in the spiritual plane. They represent the teachers and guardians of balance in nature. Depending on their colour, they teach different lessons and share different energies with those they watch over and walk beside. Colouring is used as a means of spiritual classification for one basic reason. Energy, all energy contains several properties or traits. It has a sound that can be recorded, a 'energy level' that can be measured, and a colour that can be photographed. For instance, place your hand on a stereo speaker and play a song. Do you feel the speaker vibrate with different variations based on the note being heard? Watch the flames of a fire. The intense or hottest part of the flame is white, or very light blue. The "cooler" portion of the flame is more red or orange. Attaching an energy or purpose to an object, or an animal based on their colour is not a new concept. It's as old as time. Within the wolf community, each breed shares a lot of common energies, as outlined by Ted Andrews in his book Animal Speak. But learning the specific energies for the individual guides is also helpful when working with wolf magic. [/INDENT]

Wolf (Madadh-alluidh): The wolf is a cunning, intelligent creature, capable of out-thinking hunters. It can teach you how to read the signs of Nature in everything, how to pass by danger invisibly, how to outwit those who wish you harm, and how to fight when needed. Sometimes the world, seen on a journey, will lead you to a spiritual teacher and guide.


The Wolf
When a lone wolf is spotted in the wilderness it embodies the energy of freedom. When seen in a pack it embodies a sense of community. If wolf appears to you alone or in a pack it is asking you to acquire the same within your own life. In spite of their negative press wolves are actually friendly, social and highly intelligent.
The wolf's senses are highly developed. Their intelligence is marked with excellent hearing, sense of smell and strong feeling. They are determined as well as cunning and use these skills for the benefit of the pack. The howl of the wolf is primal and penetrating. They howl to find other pack members or to let wolves from outside of the pack know their territory boundaries. If you hear a wolf howl it might be telling you to stand your ground and defend your boundaries.
Wolf teaches you to have a balance between the needs your family has of you and the needs you have for yourself. They are totally loyal to the pack but do not give up their identity to the pack. If wolf appears in your life you are being asked to look at where you are being too dependent and where you may be too independent. In both family and community there needs to be a balance.
Wolves convey much with their bodies. If they are angry, they may stick their ears straight up and bare their teeth. A wolf who is suspicious pulls its ears back and squints. Fear is often shown by flattening the ears against the head. A wolf who wants to play dances and bows playfully. Their body language is symbolic for those with this medicine. Man also uses body language to convey messages. The study of this art can increase perception in those with this totem. Wolves hunt in packs, relying on endurance to run down weak and older animals. They have been known to run 35 miles a day in pursuit. They are the epitome of stamina and strength. With an extremely well developed societal organization, they act together to hunt and raise their young. They do not fight unnecessarily and often go out of their way to avoid fighting. Sometimes a growl, a glance, a posture is all that is necessary to determine dominance. Wolf teaches those with this medicine to know who you are and to develop strength and confidence in what you do.

The Eagle
The eagle is a sacred messenger, carrying our prayers to the Creator and returning with gifts and visions for the people. Eagle feathers aid medicine people in calling on this connection when they need to contact spirit for healing.
Eagles require isolation from human encroachment to breed in the wild. If a human strays to close or touches their nest, they are likely to abandon it. Both male and female incubate the eggs.
The eagle is incredibly patient. They are often seen perched in a tree maintaining the same position for hours at a time. One of the challenges for those with this totem is to learn how to master this art in every area of their life.
Image
Eagles are good at feeding themselves from the land and still soar to great heights in the sky. They teach us the balance of being of the earth but not in it. They have excellent hearing. Eagles can hunt as much by ear as by sight. To those to whom eagle comes, the ability to hear spiritually and physically will increase.
Eagles have sharp beaks and strong jaws. They remind us to pay attention to our speech and how it affects others. Our words as well as the tone of our voice should be examined. Eagles ask us to maintain a prayerful connection with Spirit, to keep in our minds what is important in life. Maintaining this attitude removes judgement from our consciousness. Without judgement we speak with encouragement and kindness towards others. Lessons associated are part of this medicine.
Image
Eagles have excellent vision. Perched high in a tree they appear to analyze and observe everything. If Eagle has blessed you with its presence in some way, you are being given potent gifts of clarity and vision to use for the good of all people helping to bring forth the light out of the darkness. Eagle also serves as a reminder to those with this totem to communicate with Great Spirit daily so the gifts Eagle offers you can be utilized fully.

The Horse
The horse symbolizes freedom and the power that comes with being free. They pulled the wagon trains across the prairies opening up new frontiers to be explored. Horses helped turn the Lakota and other Native tribes into the powerful mounted warriors and nomads that they became, although taming the horse wasn't easy, as their spirit for freedom was a fire that burned within them.
Those with this medicine can be fiercely independent and have little tolerance for anything or anyone that limits their free expression. This characteristic can create challenges in relationships of all kinds, especially co-dependent ones. Those with this totem are teachers to their partners, friends and family showing them how to stand solid within themselves. Individuals who choose to be involved with a horse person do so because the need for self empowerment is strong. They seek the horse and the power it holds rather than the horse seeking them.
Because horse medicine people hold the energy of power their leadership and teaching skills are usually in demand. Intuitive and wise they make excellent therapists. They enjoy helping others but often feel as if there is no one to lead or teach them. If people become too dependent they will respond like a bucking bronco. Personal relationships often lack emotional or mental nourishment especially in the earlier years of life. To compensate for this they are forced to go within and strengthen their bond with spirit. This bond provides them with the nourishment needed to evolve their soul while staying grounded in the earth experience.
Horses give their riders the safety of speed and the promise of adventure. Natives tribes used the horse to run, fight, send messages, hunt and move their villages quickly. The horse carried people and their belongings into new uncharted territory and the challenges that it held. If horse has come to you, you are being offered a gift of safe movement. Is there somewhere that you want or need to go? Horse can help you get there, whether the place is physical or spiritual. Is their a new venture you want to undertake? Call on horse to help you create it. Are there challenges in front of you that you dot want to deal with? If so, the horse asks you to awaken your inner power and move forward with courage.
Before this continent became so populated, it was well suited to the Mustang. They had adapted themselves to live in harsh environments on diets that wouldn't sustain most horses. However, their need for freedom made them unsuited to a country whose people seem compelled to control and dominate everything. Because of this the mustang is just about gone. When the horse, either wild or domestic, appears in your life the following questions should be asked. Are you pushing boundaries that are going to cause severe repercussions? Are you trying in your need to be free, to not play by the rules? If so, this may not be a bad thing, but learn the lesson of mustang, there can be a high price to pay for freedom.

Rabbit

The Rabbit

There are two dozen species of Cottontails in the United States, all with similar characteristics. Rabbits are vegetarians eating the inner bark of saplings and shrubs as well as leaves and fruit. They provide a perfect illustration of Nature's balance. Their rapid rate of reproduction is countered by the fact that almost every predatory animal eats them. Cottontail rabbits are quite timid, never venturing too far from the safety of their warrens. Rabbit teaches us through its timidity, to be gentle with ourselves in all situations.
The rabbit is often associated with fear because of the nervous energy it expends. They move suddenly and unpredictably. They hop and leap through life asking those with this totem to pay attention to their personal movement. Growth is assured if one is moving in balance with what is in their life. If they are moving to fast or to slow an imbalance occurs and growth is stifled.
Rabbits are most visible during dawn and dusk. The sun rising and setting from horizon to horizon holds an air of mystique about it. It is a time when the invisible becomes visible and nature spirits are more pronounced. Because the rabbit and the fairy realms are active during the same time of day it has a strong connection with the magic and mystery of other worlds. To enter this world all that is required is a leap of faith.
Sensitive with keen observation skills, the rabbit has strong reflexes that help them dash to safety quickly protecting themselves from danger. They can be seen, disappear and reappear in the twinkling of an eye. Fast, agile and clever they hold the teachings of spontaneous decisive movement. Always knowing which direction to go and when. When rabbit appears it is enabling you to take advantage of opportunities that may only present themselves for brief moments. Rabbits are guides into the shadow world, where all of our personal fears lie. When the rabbit appears it is time to examine those deep reflexive fears that hold you back from growing. Do you keep dashing for the safety of your old patterns every time something new or challenging presents itself? If so the rabbit asks you to face your fears with compassion for yourself. Accept that it is part of human nature to feel fear at times, but also believe that our fears need not paralyze our growth and movement.

[LEFT]Scurry, scurry, worry, worry,
Like the hare I run about,
Busy, busy, in a tizzy,
I only hear the voice without.
Quiet, hare. Do not despair.
The voice within is strong and sure.
If you just listen, you'll learn your mission,
Be confident and self-assured.[/LEFT]


Fertility and New Life [LEFT]The Rabbit is known for its ability to procreate,[LEFT]its fleetness, and its movement is by leaps.[/LEFT]


[LEFT]People with this totem may find that their
endeavors go in leaps and bounds also.
If a Rabbit totem has appeared in your life, it may indicate a need for more planning
or to check those plans already set in motion.
Do not box yourself in a corner.
This totem may also bring a need to examine the kinds of foods you eat.
Perhaps a vegetarian diet, if only for a short time, can help you strengthen and heal.
The Rabbit is associated with the goddess Hecate.[/LEFT]
