This is a subject that has always interested me. Even though Iam not native , I have been fascinated by the culture since I was a small child.
I had always been curious about the possible connection that we have with animals as I would often dream of them, or pay attention when they appeared
to be speaking to me.
I have dreamt of a white wolf giving her pup to me the night before my son was born. I have dreamt of being attacked by a cougar.
I have many a time stood only a few feet from a doe and just spoke to her.
When I hear a crow I pay attention.
But I know my spirit/ totem animal...is a goose.
I don't do winters well, and prefer to be south this time of year. When I suspect danger, I want to fly away.
I can be very loud if annoyed..and to put the jokes at bay..if I decide to let the crap fly..I care not if it lands on you.
At this very moment- I can look out my window, across the river, and there stands an island with a totem pole..just beyond it, on the beach, is a
flock of about 20 geese.
Iam so envious, and would love to fly away.
Years ago, I found this book, and it has helped me understand many things.
Great thread idea.
