Animal Totems

Animals as Spirit Guides


Animal totems offer spiritual guidance. To best understand the lessons conveyed by animals that show up in our lives involves us learning their instinctual behaviors and natural habitats. Is the animal nocturnal? Does it live in the desert or the tropics? Is the animal solitary or live in a pack? What type of diet do they eat? Answers to these questions and similar questions will give you clues as to what message is being offered.

Bat Totem Visitation
