A tick is a parasite, it lives on the outer body of the vertebrates such as a cow, dog, buffalo etc. They feed on blood from their host.
What we mostly dislike about tick is they give us an unpleasant feeling and make us think that they are harmful for us. In extreme cases, it we can develop a phobia about their unpleasant nature When we notice a tick, we try to kill it at once, due to the irritating feeling that we have.
To have a tick as one’s totem will be somehow challenging for us – simply because of the nature of such an animal. We dislike that animal or when we see this parasite we will be afraid. We may experience an irrational feeling towards it.
But we must be open minded about the worth of all creatures, especially fight against the strong impulse to draw the line at parasites. Tick’shavebeen entitled as “The parable of the beast”. Tick’s can live in a state of suspended animation. They are unaffected by heat and cold .They can survive under any condition. When an animal walks by, they stick on it and start sucking blood from that animal.
The symbolism of the tick gives us an alarm that we should be careful even about small things. Even a small thing can destroy a giant. It give us a message that we should be careful of what words we spill out from our mouth.Even a word can hurt other or can spoil a healthyrelationship. We should be aware of taking each and every step in our life. The tickalso symbolizes the danger of inflating fears way out of proportion compared to risk. Like a tick fear is also a parasite in a human life which sucks the entire life out and makes onefeel empty. So, we should make a bold decision in our life with a sense of awareness in our mind.
Fear should not rule us, we should rule the fear. The tick gives us a message which we need to follow in our life. The message is” Do want you want to do, take sensible precautions and do not let your fears cripple your enjoyment of life”. The tick is the symbol of precaution and awareness. If thetick is one’s animal totem it also gives us positive energy. If one tries to crush the tick it would not die it will live, it will tryhard to keep it’s life.
