My Totem

My totem, my power animal is ferocious and strong in Nature, gentle and loving in spirit. He walks with me when I am troubled or confused. He lays at the foot of my bed at night. He is there in my hopes and dreams and goals. He protects me, guides me and gives me courage.

Honor your totem.

Till next time, friends, may your moccasins and heart always find a happy path. Blessings and walk in Peace and Beauty.
