Bear Totems
Bears in general teach us to slow down and reserve our energies. Bear medicine also has to do with awakening from within. Bear teaches us that life's answers are no further than your own subconscious. There is no need to look outside of yourself when bear is nearby. Bears are also climbers and can teach us to reach new heights.

Ocean Totems share two characteristics: water element and salt. Water energies invoke flow and emotion. Natural sea salt is used to bring out flavors in the foods we eat and can also be used as a healing agent in mouth gargles and saline washes.

Primates
Humans are also primates, but in this animal totem index only apes and monkeys are featured. Human nature is easily seen in the characteristics and habits of monkeys and apes. We love to watch their behaviors because they remind us so much of ourselves.

Reptiles as Totems
Reptiles as totems in general are wise teachers. Their bodies are covered with scales, offering a lesson in the importance of shielding from outside influences. When they shed their skins they are teaching us to let go or discard the past and evolve through birthing new ideas.
