Many people have asked me "What is a totem?" A totem is an animal spirit. We entrust our totems to stand by us throughout our lifetime.
Every member of the animal kingdom has attributes that our own spirits can emulate and connect with our own life theme. My son Chris' totem is the grizzly bear. This is a symbol of his life theme "warrior."
While some people may never actually see their totems, the energy of these animal spirits is always present with them. My own totem is the elephant, a symbol of strength and loyalty.
Your totem serves several purposes during your life. They serve as sentinels that stand guard on our behalf. This means if our totem senses a dark spirit or feels that we are somehow being threatened, they will instinctively try to scare off our enemies. They will do this as animals do: by growling, hissing or even acting aggressively.
Our totems also offer us positive energy just from their presence. Having this animal spirit in your life offers you many benefits.
Even the highest angels, the Principalities have totems. Their totem is the lion. Lions are known around the world as a symbol of both great strength and pride. This is the perfect totem for Father God's army of angels. All angels have totem spirits and they can call upon animals to intercede on your behalf when you need help or protection.

I have tried and tried to figure out what my totem is but the more I think about it the more possibilities I come up with! I finally came to the conclusion that I have "Noah's Ark" following me around. Animals are my life.

It's hard for me to figure out whom my totem is. I love all animals. I have always had animals when I was growing up. I appreciate your input sylvia when you have time. Your the best sylvia. God Bless, Deborah

I love all animals but I feel horses and cats, a mental bond with them...especially horses, that I just can't explane.

Dear Sylvia, I have always had a lifelong interest and closeness with "dragons." I love them, I read about them, I collect them and more.
I do believe that a dragon is my totem. Is this possible? Being that dragons are more considered mythical animals and not so common?
i would really like to know if they are in fact my totems! Thank you and love
7 blessings to you.

Can a totam animal be the same in your spiritual life as in your real life? I have always has a total affinity and love of cats, and have many cats in my real life, could they also be my total animal as well?

Mark, that was such a touching post. I'm sure your totem is still with you and I hope you feel him soon. My brother's name is Mark, so I love that name because I love him very much. My mom didn't know what to name him, so a nurse told her of her boy who had passed and his name was Mark. I wish you well in the future.
