Your Life Animal Totem works with you throughout your entire life and is always there when you need it's powers. You may have one or several totems, that became or can become apart of your life at any time throughout your life. Your Primary Life Totem will represent your key focus at this time. The messages that your Life Totem brings is an important reminder from the Universe about your present purpose on Earth and generally reflects your inner spiritual nature.
Your Journey Totem Animal reflects a period of time. Not just a day but perhaps weeks, months, or even years, that is, as long as it takes for you to walk the path that the Journey Totem is guiding you.
Several Journey Totems could appear in your life, more commonly than all others, and as if by co-incidence. When two or three animals suddenly make an appearance and they share a similar nature, you have established the basis of your path.
The difference between the Journey Totem and the Message Totem is a period of time.
A Message Totem will arrive suddenly, neutrally and at random times throughout your life, maybe even only once, whereas the Journey Totem will slip in and out of your life over a period of time. The Message Totem usually brings a message self growth or spiritual awakening. The experience will stand out as unique and bring a powerful message.
Your Shadow Totem is one of a number of totems that has been sent to test us, and will be one that you initially fear. The Shadow Totem often represents inner fears that you must overcome.
You may find yourself unusually fascinated or attracted to a previously perceived dangerous animal, which is considered a spiritual test to see if you are yet willing to accept the power of that animal totem.
Failing to face the fears of the Shadow Totem will permit the forces represented by the animal totem, to continue to work against your life, holding you back from enlightenment.
When you overcome the fear of the Shadow Totem it will take it's place as your Spirit Totem to become one of your most powerful Animal Totems.
