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.

Hi Sylvia, I was wondering if a Bear or a Wolfe or both are my totem? The reason I ask is because I was getting everything in bears, even saw a manx cat outside my door. Then about a month later we adopt a manx cat named Bear. I woud have never guessed that after all the bears and seeing a manx I would have a manx cat named Bear. Also lots of dreams of wolfes.Two merged into one, one day when I was mediting. Thanks, Love & Bless Marion

Is it possible to have more then one Spirit Totem?
In my case it seems to change constantly depending on what is going on in my life.Yet large cats( tigers,lions,snow leopards,ect.) and wolves some to be a constant draw no matter along with some sea creatures.

I have had dreams of sitting with lions and panthers in fields often by lakes. The last one was a month ago and in the midst of them were a bunch of pigs just hanging out with them.

After I read about animal totems in one of Sylvia's books I started asking every night before bed to have a dream that would identify my totem and let me remember it. After about a week I did have a dream in which I was being chased by an irate mother and was saved by a huge elephant. Coincidence? I think not...lol
