Totem or Power Animals
Totem or power animals are a personal energy of the creature that touches the life of the individual and guides or influences them to greater knowing. Power animals have been a creative force in the lives of all indigenous people around the globe. They live closest to the earth and consider the animals as teachers and guides. I know that we should all learn from the winged ones, the four- legged, the two- legged, those who swim and those who crawl, the insects and all of nature, if we would only open our hearts and our minds to hear the messages that they send us.
