Totems and Guides – Animals and Animal Medicine — REVISED!

Why “Whale Maiden”?

WhaleTail on TV

Whales are my part of my ‘totem,’ and by that I mean a collection of animals that provide a sense of your family heritage, and which provide you with information and guidance about yourself and your world. Cats are also part of my ‘totem,’ and not just because I live with two of them.

Animals, animal tracks, their nests and burrows, and things like feathers, can provide you with information to know yourself better, or to make a decision.

(Updated= I added the tags, ‘turtle at sanibel beach’ and ‘animal holes’ so that someone could find this post.  Technically, this nest was on Captiva, which is an island north of Sanibel Island.  And, here in Southwest Florida we don’t really say, “Sanibel Beach,” we just say, “Sanibel” because, saying Beach with Sanible is redundant.)

 Totems or Guides bring you messages from Great Spirit.  One of the best sources on the web to learn more about what the messages from each  animal means, is to go to the REVISED link
