My totem spirit is a bear. When I was a little girl, I had a teddy bear I could not be separated from. I still have him, 42 years later! Throughout my life, I have identified with the attributes of a bear. They are very protective of the ones they love but will only fight if provoked. They are slow and love warm places they can curl up and nap. Bears are nurturers and take care of the weak among them. They are strong and brave. Those with the bear totem are said to be natural leaders and healers.
So what do you think is your totem spirit? Think of an animal you feel may have chosen you. This should be an animal that appears in the wild. Domestic pets like dogs and cats are very common and usually aren't totem spirits unless you don't have one living with you. Here's some links to help you decide what your totem spirit may be: http://www.spiritanimal.info/animal-meanings/ There is even a quiz you can take to help you decide. It may be accurate and it may not. Remember, your spirit animal chooses you, so think of an animal who has made a constant reappearance throughout your life.
