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
The appearance of an Elk signifies that you are entering a time of plenty. Everything you need – you will get. Alternatively don’t try for quick and easy; long and steady is the key to reaching your goals. Elk also brings you courage in achieving your goals. Sometimes all it takes is the next step.
Elk 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 elks message could be strength and empowerment. If you need to be impressive in a situation, you can draw on elks power. If you are shy or unsure, elk can aid you to become more confident.
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 an Elk 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 Elk totems 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.
