Groundhog

Altered States of Consciousness

A very difficult and powerful totem to have,
Groundhog is the symbol of opening fully to the dreamtime.

Of exploring altered states of consciousness more deeply and fully.

Dreams will have great significance.

Lessons associated with death, dying and revelations about its processes will begin to surface.

Groundhog can teach its people metabolic control.

How to go into the great unconscious without harm.

People with a Groundhog totem need to have definite boundaries in their life and let those around them know those boundaries.

Groundhogs power is strongest in Winter and two years is an important time period.

Two years of intensive studying might be required to achieve true trances or alter states of consciousness.

This is often the totem of Shamans and Mystics.

Animals that live in the forest or woodland regions represent freedom and innocence.

Woodland totems are strongly connected to the energies of green plants and trees.

Wolverine

Persistence, Passion

Wolverine heralds the awakening of passion for life
and the ability to absorb all the lessons that come our way.

This passion can be a gift or a curse, depending on how it is used.
One can be a glutton for food (a detriment) or a glutton for knowledge (a benefit).

Wolverine is the keeper of animal secrets.

Wolverine teaches us never to surrender, to pursue what we desire until we reach our goals.

Honor your Wolverine spirit through silence, discretion and a ferocious appetite for the truth.

This animal represents everything that is wild and untamed. When it appears in your life it is time to actively pursue your goals and objectives with boldness and persistence. Pursue your dreams and be willing to fight for your ideals. Be aware that your passion for life will increase with opportunities to gobble up food or knowledge. This is not the time to be passive or uncertain. Fight for what is yours but do not get greedy or, claim what is not yours. Stand your ground on important issues. Use all of that extra energy you have to accomplish something positive. You are at your all time best.

Snail

Protecting Emotions and Spirit

Snail is a reflection of the protective spirits that surround each of us.
The appearance of a Snail totem in your life reflects
the need to be more protective in your environment.
Be aware of your surroundings and keep your guard up.

Think about where you encountered Snail on the way to work? Near home?
Call upon your spirit protectors as you walk around the place
where you encountered Snail.

Snail people are often loners, not very social and often timid.
Their life lesson will be to learn to trust.
Learning to balance trust and protection is a difficult lesson;
watch out for the appearance of Snail and back off when he appears.

Snails also teach us to protect the inner child.
Snail people often present a hard shell to the world when they really have a tender heart and strong feelings.

Watch for Snail and learn who and when to trust.

Firefly

Spiritual inspirations and hope.

The symbolic meaning of the firefly of course deals with light, illumination and the like. Although an important focus, the issue of light is not the high feature behind the symbolic meaning of the firefly. Rather, it is the messages this wonderous creature gives us while her light is off may be most profound to our growth.

An ordinary looking creature during the day, admittedly, the firefly is a remarkable sight when it glows at night. This is a symbolic message to us humans that although our physical appearance may seem one way - it is our internal makings - what is inside us (such as our spirit) that makes us shine from the inside out. That which is within us will always illuminate us and those around us.

Here is a summary list of symbolic meaning of the firefly:


Inspiration
Illumination
Patience
Attraction
Energy
Hope
Aspiration
Guidance
Efficiency
Creativity
New Ideas
Awakening


The firefly primarily uses its light in mating ceremonies, and it is quite elaborate an intricate. Light signals are precise and exactly timed in order to attract the right mate. This is a symbolic message that if we are to attract the people, places and things in our lives, we must plan accordingly, lay down the groundwork, and be persistent in our ideals.

It is interesting to note that the firefly does not produce heat in order to create her light. This is a message that we must not burn our candles at both ends. Creativity and development is suppose to be a free, natural, and easy-going process - there is no need for us to "burn-out" in order to reach our goals.

In addition to using no heat to produce her light, the fact that fireflies eat very little is another symbolic meaning of economy or efficiency. Adult fireflies use their environment to the most effective extent possible in order to gain their energy. This is a lesson for us to use the resources we have availble to us, and not waste or consume to excess.

When fireflies come into our lives they are there to guide us to ways of living that are more earth-friendly, and soul-friendly. Fireflies teach us the value of living simply, and relying on our own inner voices for illumination. Fireflies also come to us with a message of creativity, and remind us that our paths are made lighter by the beauty that we allow into our lives.

Spirit Bear

Awakening the Power of the Unconscious

Spirit bear, a connection to ghosts and spirits of the otherworlds, a call to shamanism and shamanic practice, healing, strength, introversion, being unspoiled and pure in nature, purity, the past is a source of wisdom, peace, inner and outer harmony.

The kermode bear is a subspecies of the American black bear, famous for its white/creamy colouring, usually found on the central and south coasts of British Columbia, in Canada (though they have been found elsewhere). It is not an albino bear, and they are not related to polar bears. In Indigenous mythologies, the white kermode bear holds a prominent place, and as a result is known as the 'spirit bear.' Like other brown bears, they are omnivores, hibernate, and tend to live in forests near water sources. Due to the mostly pristine environments in which they live, they are not overly aggressive towards, nor scared of humans.

The magical Spirit Bear is one of the most remarkable and rare
animals alive.

Native North Americans attach much folklore to these creatures one story claims that Raven, the creator, made the white bear as a reminder of the last ice age and decreed that these bears would live in peace and harmony forever.

Penguin

Dreaming and Astral Projection

A Penguin Totem can show you how to move freely
through the astral plane and the dream dimension.

A Penguin person will have lucid dreams and have the ability to change the course of those dreams while still asleep.

You can use those same energies to change the course of your waking life as well.

Think of the leap the Penguin makes from land into the water
astral projection is just that easy for Penguin people.

If you do Astral Travel with the help of your Penguin, make sure to elicit the help of your other Totems beforehand.

Your totem can help you keep a connectionto Mother Earth and the waking plane and use one or more of your most powerful Totems as protectors and guides.


------------------------------------------------------

Water animal totems are as vast with meaning as the sea itself.

Water is a powerful symbol in itself.

It's a sign of cleansing, freedom and mobility. Most significantly, water as a symbol is a universal expression of the unconscious.

Therefore, water animal totems help us reveal and identify our hidden thoughts or actions. When these creatures find their way into our lives they need to be honored. If we pay attention, they will aid us in identifying our hidden motives, motives that aren't quite healthy for us. Even better, by observing and being open our water animal totems, we learn the ways of simpler, more positive paths of thought, thus replacing the hidden negative ones.

Water critters are invariably bright and playful. Living up to the freedom that the water sign embodies, water animal totems remind us to live with that same unbridled freedom.

We would do well to follow the example of these creatures, and live as if we have no limits.
