A few points about totems

DRAFT

Here are a few more points about totems.

Totems are messengers from the Great Spirit, but there is more to say here.

You may choose to enter a meditation in order to find your totem animal, but you do not choose the animal that becomes your Totem.  (There are animals that will come to you in meditation that you must avoid as totems.  In this case you are “not picking” them.  These include poisionous snakes and anything that you define as “creepy-crawlies.”  There are important Shamanic reasons for this.)

There will be many animals that become part of your totem over time. 

Totems are different from messengers.
