This class is on animal or totem spirits. Totem Spirits inhabit all living and nonliving things. We can communicate with totem spirits of plants, animals, and objects. We are helped by totem spirits in many endeavors. As we become quiet and listen to these gentle voices, we can experience a world beyond our world as we know it. Discover your totem spirits and what they are here to tell you.

Meditation for Contacting your Spirit Animal
With the rebirth of interest in esoteric knowledge in recent decades, more and more people are discovering the magic of animal medicine. The archetypes that animals have brought to life, through the stories and art of all cultures, resonate deep within us. Spirit animals (sometimes called power animals or totem spirits) are metaphysical allies that we can call on to aid us in our journey.
(Use at least one totem from each world).
Find yourself a medicine bag that can hang around your neck. Place in this bag one of each item.

To find out what animal you are in the Native American Zodiac just look for your birth date (Month/Day) and you will find the animal that corresponds to it.
