Totem animals are Spirit Guides, they come in and out of our lives providing assistance, guardianship, wisdom and care. We all have Totem Spirit Guides that resonate more strongly with us than others and at different points in our lives one Totem animal will be stronger than another. Totem animals are Immortals; descendants of divine nature, ancestors of Immortal beginnings who have taken shape of animals capable of calling other animals to their call & preparing feats of supernatural strength.


Keeping carved statues, colors, textiles with an animal print of your current Totem animals, paintings & pictures of Totem animals are all ways of paying hommage to your current Totem animals. In ancient times not only chiefs but tribespeoples would keep a physical symbol of their strongest, guiding Totem animal on them to display their Spirit Guide.


It is often thought only the standard Totem Poles represent Totem animals, however that is not true. A Totem animal is any animal possessed by supernatural powers & capable of accomplishing supernatural feats that involves the influence, persuasion or guidance of the human race. Such as the condor & puma to the Incas, the blackbird who carries messages to the dead to the English, the ancestral animal spirits from Dreamtime of the Aborigines, the animal Spirit Guides of the Haida of Queen Charlotte's Islands, the animals Spirit Guides of the Native Americans and so forth. For that reason we are including Animal Totem Spirit Guides from all of the aforementioned civilizations as well as others.


As a Spirit Guide Totem animals provide wisdom, their particular strengths & powers and help shape our lives as needed. They have Immortal power, capable of providing assistance, helping us grow, showing us the right path to take, make the right decisions and show us glimpses into our past, present & future... including their ties to us in past lives and to our ancestors.


Spirit Guides choose you, not the other way around. Look at your life right now, what signs have been given you directly or subtly to show you which of these animals is guiding you? Which ones do you feel the strongest pull to while looking at the list? It is believed by the Native Americans that an Animal Totem Spirit Guide will show themselves to you in person, in vision or you will hear the animal's name in your mind often.
