The spirit animal, or totem, symbolizes the traits, skills and characteristics you believe to have in yourself, and guides you to those you would like to obtain. The mythology of the spirit animal is often characterized by a personal relationship to the individual it is associated with. You can have one or several spirit animals change throughout your life as the totem is a symbolism of your expanding inner personality, feelings and mythology. The knowledge and power of animal guides is alive and can be effectively used to improve our lives. It is important to learn about the traits and habits of your spirit animal and see how they are reflected in your own personality and past experiences.
Spirit animals, or totems, often reveal themselves to us through our subconscious in our dreams. Meditation is a state of conscious dreaming, so you can identify animal totems through both dreams and meditation. Spirit animals are symbols of valuable information about our past, present and future. If we pay attention, and learn more about what this animal represents in our dreams we can work with our animals mythologies to resolve circumstances in our lives as animals tend to have a keener sense of purpose, and instinct. These are valuable traits we can learn from them by seeking their guidance, and observing their meaning in our dreams and meditations.
