Are you making a competition out of something that has no reason to be a competition? Step back a moment and re assess your goals and why they are there. Find a more subtle and gentle approach.-Elk
If Elk has come bounding into your life;
This large member of the Deer family is also bringing your awareness to competition. Are engaging in something competitively rather than working within the group in order to reach a common goal? Another aspect of this animals message could be strength and empowerment. If you need to be impressive in a situation, you can draw on its power. If you are shy or unsure, Wapiti can aid you to become more confident.
If Elk is your Animal Totem;
You know how to pace yourself. You might not be the first to arrive, but you’ll get there without burning out. If you have this totem, you will feel the need for companionship or group support. You do not have to do everything alone, help is out there waiting for you if you just ask for it. People with this totem have a need for high energy levels and this can be accomplished through their foods. A diet that is mostly vegetarian will give you strength without stress. Vitamins are a good supplement.
