Do you know what a shamanic animal totem is?  Do want to know?  Animal Speak by Ted Andrews is available at Amazon.  This will help explain what animal totems are and how you can discover yours.  I’m sure you can also find it at one of your local libraries.

I believe my totem is the wolf.  Wolves have always fascinated me.  I have them everywhere in my home.  Pictures and statues. You can’t look anywhere and not find them.  According to Animal Speak:
–The wolf has a capacity for making quick and firm emotional attachments.  Learning to trust your own insights and to secure your attachments accordingly is part of what wolf medicine teaches.

As I’ve said here before I really don’t let many people into my sphere, but those who are in my circle can be sure they will always have a place there.  It doesn’t take me long to understand if someone is going to be a friend.  Ask anyone who is in my circle and I’m sure they’ll say the same thing.  I have an uncanny ability to pick people out of a crowd and know almost instantly if they are going to be my friend.

Loyalty is another attribute of the wolf and when it comes to business I’m sometimes loyal to my detriment.  That’s all part of the wolf though.

According to New Age Mystic and his wolf totem page:
–Wolf Medicine tells you that slow and steady gets the prize.

–Wolf brings with him a strong sense of faithfulness, inner strength and intuition.

–The Wolf has excellent hearing sensitivity, and is a reminder that you should listen to others, especially those closest to you; but also to yourself your most inner thoughts and words. This will strengthen and enhance your own intuition and discernment.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned during the time I’ve been studying The Law of Attraction and becoming more spiritual as a result it’s that patience REALLY is a virtue.  Nothing is ever really gained on the quick.  You only have to look at the story of The Tortoise and the Hare to know that to be true.

Spirituality and Faith run through this entire blog.  I KNOW I don’t have to discuss that again.  Anyone who has read ANYTHING here understands how deeply faithful and spiritual I am.

I think once again if you were to poll my friends and anyone who knows me even a little bit you’ll find that they tell you that I listen intently to anything anyone says.  If I have any advice to offer, I think long and hard and only offer my thoughts after I’ve reflected on the matter at hand for the time I think it takes to offer my sound opinion.

For these reasons above and many more I sincerely believe my animal totem is the wolf.

Is there a particular animal that you have an affinity for?  If so read up on that animal and discover its attributes.  You may find your Shamanic Animal Totem.

As an addendum, I may have mentioned my friend, Carla Goddard’s blog:
Sacred Soul Shaman here in the past.  We have written about the same topics on our respective blogs so many times.  The weird thing?
We’ve NEVER planned it.  My blog today is about Shamanic Animal Totems.  As anyone who has been following my blog knows, I write these entries weeks in advance.  This particular post was written LAST Wednesday.
Went on Carla’s blog this morning as I usually do.  I have several blogs that I read and hers is one I never try to miss.  Well, you’ll never guess what I discovered.  Monday’s entry was about Shamanic Animal Totems.

Kinda weird that this has happened so often and only with Carla.  There are so many other blogs I follow that discuss the same topics as I do.  Why does this happen just with Carla Goddard?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
