    Default What's Your Totem

    What is your Totem? Here is mine....

    The Panther

    The name panther is often associated with a particular species of leopard or jaguar and sometimes the cougar. The black panther is smaller but more fierce than lions and tigers. They are agile climbers and excellent swimmers. Because they can sprint with great speed they hold the teachings of quick decisive action.

    Panthers have over 400 voluntary muscles that can be used at will when the need arises. This symbolizes an ability to shape shift realities using all parts of the body to perform a task. They can move gracefully in and out of situations as well as freeze and not be noticed. Because the panther is not a good long distant runner those with this medicine should incorporate movement therapies into their life that enhance endurance. They need to learn how to pace themselves and not push to fast or hard on any one task.

    The power of the panther is the power of silence. It is extremely quiet when hunting or stalking. It knows when to make its presence known and when to become invisible. The panther holds the secrets of unseen worlds and is associated with lunar energies. Within the darkness of night lies the truth of creation. Those with this totem hold knowledge of a galactic origin. They have a responsibility to care take this knowledge and caution must be applied when sharing it with others. When the student is ready the teacher appears. If the student isn't ready the information received could be detrimental.

    Panthers have acute sensitivity. The hairs on its body especially on the face pick up subtle vibrations. This is symbolic for those with this totem. It indicates a need to pay attention to their feelings and honor the messages those feelings convey. Touch can be an important avenue to explore to awaken ones hidden gifts. The black panthers coat, sleek, smooth and sensual has been linked to sexuality. When panther appears in a persons life it might be asking you to resolve old sexual issues or to embrace your sexuality fully.

    The black panther has great mysticism associated with it. It represents the life and power of the night. It can show us how to embrace the darkness and awaken the light within it. When you experience the presence of panther one of its most noticeable features is its unblinking stare. It appears to see right through the body. Those with this medicine use their eyes as a healing tool and have the potential to heal on a cellular level.

    Author Ted Andrews states that in Egyptian rituals a panther tail was worn around the neck or waist to help protect and strengthen the individual. It has been a symbol of the "Argos of a Thousand Eyes," who guarded the heifer IO who was loved by Zeus. After his death, the eyes were transferred to the feathers of the peacock. A powerful totem to have the panther always brings a guardian energy to those to whom it comes.

    this is my totem: The rabbit- I find this to be very true to my nature, I'm calmest being alone, its the only time i can be off gaurd, Im not very sociable i watch, study and listen, when a sitiuation arises im not comfortable with my first instinct is to hide myself at a safe distance, it may seem cowardly but it keeps me out of many possible problems, but some good qaulities are im very curious i want to learn or try just about anything, and i have always been told my intuition is outstanding here is the discribtion for the rabbit:



    Rabbits normally live alone in the wild, making their homes by burrowing underground. Rabbits are curious animals who like to explore their surroundings. They live on a few acres of land & become familiar with every square inch. They are territorial creatures who will fight over their piece of land. Their eyes can see in every direction, so they will watch a bird in the air while watching a predator on the ground. When aroused, their ears stand up. All these characteristics combined with their willingness to run away, are what rabbits use to defend themselves against predators.

    Rabbit is often connected with fear because they are timid and constantly on guard. Rabbit wants us to learn how to face our fear and know when to defend our space or walk away.

    Rabbit shows us that defending ourselves doesn't always involve fighting back. He teaches us to listen carefully to what is going on in our environment so we can accurately use our intuition when in danger.

    Exclamation RE: What's Your Totem

    I am The Wolf,
    which I love all animals but the wolf chose me and If you dont already know you have more then one. My main one is the Wolf I have others as well that help with other problems in my life which you can look up to find out what the others totems are for and what part of your life they will help with. But like the wolf I love the night and the moon and my family comes first and yes i'm top dog leader of my pack but, I love all of mother natures animals no matter how big or small they might be.

    Mouse. Te, tenacious and humble, mouse goes everywhere and knows the little secrets. Mouse doesn't need or want much, rarely fights and seldom travels. Mouse knows which wire to gnaw to burn your house to the foundations, but likely won't 'cause he has, bit by bit, carried an entire fifty pound bag of dog food into the skirting boards. Mouse is a good neighbor.

    I have a rather hard one to work with a Púca. In some regions of Ireland, the Púca is spoken of with considerably more respect than fear; if treated with due deference, it may actually be beneficial to those who encounter it. The Púca is a creature of the mountains and hills, and in those regions there are stories of it appearing on November Day and providing prophecies and warnings to those who consult it. It is one of the myriad of faery folk, and, like many faery folk, is both respected and feared by those who believe in it.

    According to legend, the Púca is an adroit shape changer, capable of assuming a variety of terrifying forms. It may appear as a horse, rabbit, goat, goblin, or dog. TRhough mine seems to like being a wolf, bear , deer, owl and, hawk. And has given me the ride of my life as a horse! No matter what form a Púca takes, its fur is almost always dark. (its name is a cognate of the early Irish 'poc', 'a male goat', and it lends its name to Puck, the goat-footed satyr made famous in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream), but it most commonly takes the form of a sleek black horse with a flowing mane and glowing yellow eyes.

    Unlike a kelpie, the Púca will do the unfortunate rider no real harm. The kelpie on the other hand will take its rider and dive into the nearest river or lake drowning the person and then devouring them.

    It is a creature associated with Samhain one of my favorite times of the year. Samhain is the Púca's day, and the one day of the year when it can be expected to behave civilly to most.
