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.

The wolf. I believe the wolf is my totem. The raven has also been in my dreams. Different cultures think differently about this bird. Thoughts?

Aries, penguins are beautiful clever little fellas. I think that's different and cool. I think mine is a bird as well. But I'm not sure and not sure what type.

I don't know what my animal totem is but I have a very strong sense of oneness with wolves. They are my favorite wild animal and since I can not own a wolf I have had dogs for most of my life. I love my dogs like they are part of my family of humans. I talk to my dogs like they can understand me. We lost our dog last year and it felt like I had lost my best friend. We are going to get another dog and I hope it will fill the void that has been with me since my dog went home to heaven. So this is why I think that the wolf is my animal totem. I hope I am right about that.

I found out what my spirit animal is. A penguin. Yes. A bloody PENGUIN!! I always thought it would be an orangutan or something, I hate penguins.

Can a Dolphin be my animal totem? I am strangly drawn to them and most times I ask for them top come to me, they appear. I live on a canal just off the Atlantic Ocean in Florida. Is this just coincidence?

It wouldn't be a surprise if my totem has had to scare off other animals, or just tell them get the hell away. When I was in 5th or 6th grade I was walking home from school sick when this very aggressive dog charged me. All I could think of at the time was why am I alone right now and this dog is going to eat me. The dog got so close that I could feel his breath on my skin when he came to a complete stop, paused for what felt like a minute then just simply walked away. It was as if his owner was right there scolding him and calling him off. *THANKS TOTEM OR WHOEVER WAS THERE TO SAVE ME!*

this is for Aries...your the bomb...lol...I answer some of these too because I feel sorry for them. I was very letdown when I heard the questions she answered on her webcasts...It seems they are pretty much the same questions,like I've heard them before? Maybe maybe not? And how does one ask questions on her radio program? The last month one a caller was prev on before having her quest answered. How does one get on 2x? The bottom line is I believe everything she says and there is proof of life afterdeath and I can't get enough of paranormal programs on tv. I wish there was more Sylvia Brownes out there that can give us hope and love and peace. ttyl
