Interpretations

What are Animal Interpretations?

Totems embody our innate strengths, gifts, purpose and where our personal power might lay.

The power of the animal is shared, affording us greater understanding of the world around us.

We are able to perceive life through the eyes of the animal. We are able to interact with the Earth on a deeper level.

Our senses are heightened; our relationships enhanced and spiritual awareness is more easily integrated into our physical lives.

Totems offer integrity to our knowing while representing the qualities that govern and determine all manifestations in our lives.

They guide us through the pathways of life and help us to choose wisely. Their wisdom, secret knowledge, gifts and messages (their medicine) are reflected through our attitudes and behaviour.
