How do I find my totem animal?

An animal totem is an important symbolic object that is used by a person to get
in touch with the qualities that an animal represents. You use an animal totem
to bring out qualities in yourself that may be missing or hidden. Throughout your
life, you may have many different animal totems throughout your life depending
on your needs. Sometimes an animal totem will come into your life and then be
replaced by another when you learn what you need to. When you find an animal that
you feel a deep connection, you might fill your environment with images of that
animal to draw its energy into your space. Animal guides can also help you get
back to your earthly roots and reconnect yourself with nature.

Discovering your animal totem requires answering a few questions for yourself.
These will help reveal a prominent animal in your life. Remember that there
are no right or wrong answers.

� What animal, bird or insect do you find yourself drawn to? (we are
normally drawn to that which resonates with us)
� When you go to the park, the forest or the zoo, what animal are you
most interested in seeing?
� What animals do you most frequently see when you are out in nature or
in the city?
� What animals are you most interested in learning more about?
� Which animal do you find intriguing or frightening?
� Have you ever been bitten or attacked by an animal?
� Is there a recurring animal in your dreams, or was one in a dream that
you have never forgotten?

Answering these questions may reveal to you a significant animal in your life.
When you find yourself drawn to a particular animal after this process, take
a few moments to meditate and ask that animal spirit to come into your life
and guide you. Honor the animal by learning more about it and its nature. Ask
yourself what lessons you need to learn from this animal and then start to learn
