We each come into this world accompanied by an animal spirit - a
significant indicator of our personal power - that walks with us on our
soul journey through space and time. These Spirit Guides are very
personal totems since they strongly reflect our inner spiritual nature.
These Life Totems are animal spirits that are with you your entire life.
They are your essence, your character, and reflect your innate core
traits. This relationship remains the same throughout your life. They
are your closest personal guides to help discover the truth of who you
are. They are always with you.
While I've never consciously tried to identify my animal spirit, I do identify with Bear.
