While meditating or being deep in thought or while asleep, you drift into your subconscious mind where you may see revelations of images of different animals.
These revelations help you to deal with the various scenarios that you come face to face in life.
The different images of animals which come to mind signify the animal totems which act as guides to your spirits. To work with your personal animal symbols you have to concentrate on them. The behaviours of animals should be studied in order to use their characteristics as your guide.
Dreaming while awake is meditation which can be used by you to identify your animal totem as follows.
“Please reveal yourself to me as I most earnestly call you to come to my help.”
Repeat these or similar words to relax your mind and slowly you will slide into the first stage of meditation or semi-consciousness. As you let your mind drift with the semi-conscious thoughts, you will have a revelation of the animal totem you are trying to communicate with.
These guidelines will help you interpret your animal totem better and make it easy to work with them. As you follow these guidelines more frequently, the revelations of your animal totem will also be more frequent as your confidence increases and as they sense that you respect their presence.
Just like other processes, this also takes some time and patience to acquire, and you SHOULD NOT get discouraged if no animal reveals itself to you during the initial periods. Keep working at it, as your eagerness to contact your animal totem is equal to the eagerness of your animal totem to contact you.
This guideline is not the ultimate word on the subject, and has been given to you as an example of an experience of a single person. Use your own method if there is any other, to achieve your revelation. This process is a two-way communication and you should be thankful to the animal world when your animal totem is revealed to you.
