Hi there, awesome site! So much of what you have brought to my attention has helped me in my personal growth and spiritual journey as of recent. Thank you so much. I wanted to request a few totems: Cardinal- I see cardinal every single day and hear his magnificent song. Pig- I dreamt of a pig recently and wasn’t sure if it had any significance. Warbler- I see a lot of warblers! Thank you and may Spirit bless you with abundance!


I have all ways felt close with pigs. They are intelligent creatures and they get me. Out of all the websites I have looked at about totem animals I recommend this website to others. But I must ask you…Why is there not a pig?

I have a list of animals that still need to go up on this website. For a while there I was adding 4 a week and burned out a bit. It’s been a few months since I have added animals – simply because of the time I have available of late. We’ve also been upgrading the website and having to do some general clean up and technical maintenance. So the animals a little bit neglected. Rest assured that there will be regular posts coming again soon.
Pig has been added to the list and will be up eventually. Please have patience. Silken Raven

I appreciate your consideration and response.



One day i was in this community, a very sad place fueled with alcohol, violence and dirt. I am a photographer and spoke to the people, it was first hard but than became good, than a child showed me his white rabbit, it was huge and an amazing surprise, love to know this meaning. also how can i know which animal totem i have.


Hiya! I’ve been looking all over, but I haven’t found an online source of the (symbolic/metaphysical) meaning of having Bigfoot/Sasquatch as a totem. I first met bigfoot in my vision quest medicine circle.. And as for Bonobo.. some time ago, part of a dream I had was of a shaman/medicine woman telling me I needed a Bonobo tail medicine pouch. Any insights on the meanings of these totem beings? Thankies~

I found a dead owl on the road. I picked her/him up and brought her home. is there a proper way to bury her according to the native americans. This same thing happend about 2 yrs ago to me. can I keep some of her feathers


Hello! My name is Lily, and I just have a few questions I was hoping you may be able to answer. Over the past month I’ve been searching for my spirit animal (your website is amazing and very helpful!). So far the same one keeps appearing, the Butterfly. I even remember when I was younger I went to a pretty awesome place called ‘butterfly world’. It was an interactive room where you could hold butterflies, and I held so many (I was very intrigued by flying creatures as a child). They seemed to like resting on my arm. A man even told me I was a ‘butterfly whisperer’ because they seemed to not want to get off me. Now, a few years later Ive been seeing butterflies everywhere. Whether it be a painting of one or some printed onto a jewellery box. Yesterday, one yellow swallowtail came flying straight towards me and gently glided over my head. The only problem is that I don’t feel very connected to butterflies. I’ve never really felt connected to them. Last year I used to dismiss butterflies when I saw them around my home. I’ve always felt more connected to one of their natural predators; birds. Perhaps the butterfly is trying to create a connection? It just puzzles me because I’ve felt very close birds, wolves, and big cats throughout my life. Thank you so very much for reading this, I appreciate it! I hope you have an amazing day and a fantastic week! Lily


I asked about a hawk that was found dead in my back yard in April. The hawk was a strong totem for me. Since I found the hawk I no longer see them everywhere I go. Now the mourning dove is with me almost constantly. Walking near me in my yard. Any idea what is happening?

Purple Orchard:

Hi, Can you please give me some guidance on this animal spirit message? Monday morning, I saw a turtle, it was moving toward me during meditation. Today, Friday, I was taking a walk and noticed a turtle and upon seeing it, it jumped into the water and swam away. How does the message change if it swam toward or moved away?


Hi,i know this sounds crazy, but ever since my grandfather passed in 1992,i have heard the same bird almost everywhere i go,and I’ve even heard it on the tv,that’s right ,the tv! I’ve pointed it out to around 8 people over the past 22 years,whether it’s whistling in public or on tv..else wise people would swear I’d lost it..i don’t know what it means ,and I’ve never seen it. Just heard it..It sounds like a high to low pitch,lasting about 3 seconds followed by 4 doodelooh


what would be the meaning of this? I found a little crocodile image that was hidden by somebody inside my sock that is rolled up. I have not wear this sock for the last 2 years and have never seen it before. It could not fell in there by accident.


I have searched many animal spirit/totem sites and so resonated with yours immediately! Thank you for your love and dedication. I came across the site when I was researching red winged black bird for my wind whispers (type of prayer flag) that I create. The flag is a gift for a friend that shared her beach home with me a few weeks ago. She loves the Red Winged Black Birds that are on the VA island. While reading the description the message so seemed to be directed for me! I have a deep connection with birds. How surprising then when I opened my mail today and a 2015 calendar showing both a blue heron (also big lately) flying followed by the red winged black bird! WOW.. knew immediately it was a powerful message.. you intuition would be greatly appreciated!


Hi! your website has been a answer to my prayers! I fell asleep recently and had a quick vision of the side of a highway. I saw two dogs attacking and killing a raccoon . Please help!

I was thinking of the love of my life. We are not together and not sure you can call us friends but maybe. Alot of confusion. Well I had sent her a fb text and no reply though it did make her do something. Again not sure but here i smy questions I was in my car thinking on how much I love her and wish we would be together holding my crystals and a love bug out of no where landing on my windshield. While we do have them in Florida I am south and we rarily see them. And there were no other around

    Hey there 👋! I love your site ♥️! I was searching for Sheep Totem in your but i couldn’t find it, so can you please add it, just wanted to know what kind of spirit animal would a sheep be? Thank You 🙏!

  3. Today I had the first ever dream about a brown eagle. It was like I was in a pretty white and open home with large windows in my room and it was like I was sleeping in the dream as well. When I opened my eyes in the dream I saw a brown eagle with long claws and yellow beak watching me sleep. At first I thought It was beautiful but It was like the eagle was trying to get in. When I blinked it was in my room eyeing me. I was another small white animal above it on a different floor of the windows. Like maybe a white fox or bunny I wasn’t too focused on it in the dream. I hid under the covers and then the eagle was making noises and clawing at my blanket trying to get in and I woke up.. it was very strange as I don’t really dream about animals. I’m fairly young but does anybody have insight on what it could mean? I’m starting a new job soon and it’s a very big step in my career and I had a fight with my significant other a day before I had this dream as well. Please anyone with knowledge or insight I need some answers.

  4. Dear Silken Raven,

    I just stumbled across this site when doing a search on the Web looking for meaning of a raven sighting, which I had this Thursday, October 14. I feel this is very urgent since I have to meet with people on Monday who do not mean we well. I feel that the raven (swooping down right in front of my car in the middle of a street so that I was almost startled. I am beginning to think this has to do with my impending visit and the raven seemed very urgent.

    I feel this is very urgent and would like to request your advice if you get this before October 18,

    Thank you.


  5. I am curious about what my spirit animal is. What are some things I could do before bed to encourage my spirit animal to come to me? And is there any really detailed test that I could take? Thanks.

    I’m into anime and other Asian shows, so I remember that the white bunny is very important to Chinese and Japanese mythology. For example, Sailor Moon has the main character called Usagi in the original Japanese dub, which means “Rabbit,” in Japanese. She is called the “Princess of the Moon,” as the Rabbit is associated with the moon itself. It might also be related to how astrology depicts the Moon in birth charts, and especially the characteristics of the zodiac sign Cancer which rules the moon. Again, Sailor Moon is based on astrology with each superhero being named after an astrological planet, and Sailor Moon, fittingly, represents Cancer. I believe there is some type of princess on the moon mythology on it, somehow, but I forget? The Chinese-American animation “Over the Moon,” has white rabbits involved with the Chinese goddess of the moon for another example, so hope that helps.


    I’ve been reading Dolores Cannon’s books, who makes various transcripts with her clients who she practices past life regression hypnosis. I believe in one of her book series (The Convoluted Universe, which has 5 books available from Ozark Mountain Publishing) had a client talk about bigfoot under hypnosis. It turns out Bigfoot is actually an intelligent creature to almost the level of human beings, and will evolve to be someday. Bigfoots are also known to be rather shy, because despite their big scary looking appearance, they are rather gentle creatures and are conscious that human beings tend to be rather violent. They seem to be able to interact with elementals or nature spirit such as invisible fairies, dwarves or elves around to be friends with. (Still, this does not mean that every claim of sighting is genuine. There are many skeptics when it comes to topics like this, because there are so many genuine frauds among real practitioners, so keep that in mind.)

  7. Hey! I was wondering if you could put up a Cockatiel spirit animal, I already know my main spirit animal (Raven) and all my others that have helped me but I just wondered since I have a cockatiel as a pet if there was a certain spirit animal attached to it or certain qualities of the cockatiel spirit animal. I have looked on the internet and there’s not much about the cockatiel spirit animal. It would be great if you could maybe give some information on the cockatiel animal totem. (don’t worry if you can’t)
    Thanks a lot,
    Aliso Lilac

  8. Hi! I’m new to this website and am greatly intrigued. I’m known to do dive into the things that interest me and I’ve definitely wondered what my spirit animal is for multiple years. An issue I have is the fact that I tend to overthink things sometimes. I wonder if there is a way for me to find this out without meeting with a shaman and without having to go outside (Corona and all). I do work at a pet store, so I try to avoid seeing “mainstream animals” as my spirit guides. Any help would be great! Separately, I’d be really interested to see what info you could scrounge up on Tanukis (Raccoon Dogs), Echidnas and more cat breeds (including more big cats)

    Thank you,

    1. Hello Mauz:
      I have added Tanukis (Raccoon Dogs) to my list of animals to get posted. Echidnas are already on that list. (this list is a long one – so I don’t know when these will get posted.)
      In the meantime, you can play with the Spirit Animal Totem generator to find some of your animal totems.
      Just follow the instructions on the page. There are almost 200 animals posted on this site so I am sure one or two will apply.

  9. How about a page for the cockroach? I’m not sure whether or not it’s my totem or spirit animal. I do have a connection with them on a spiritual level, but I dont know the symbolism or what energies they carry. Is there more to the cockroach than being a dirty pest?

  10. I went on a journey to find my spirit animal recently, but all I was able to see towards the end of my the journey was a flash of a wing. I’m guessing it’s the wing of a bird of prey because of how large it was. I can’t figure out what my spirit animal is. Do you have any idea what this means? What are other ways I can find my spirit animal?

  11. would you please add the canary? i’d love to know more about its meaning
    and thank you so much for this website! it’s really helpful 🙂

  12. Can you please add HARE to the list? I have found them elsewhere, however your site is the best I have come across for accurate animal spirit interpretations. Thank you so much for the work you have put into it.
    Love Brenda.

  13. I am a great fan, cause I have all sorts of birds and Wing creatures coming to my feeder and sometimes inside my home, Robin, Blue tits & Chickadee, Jay, Magpie, Crow, Blackbird, Lady Bug, Bee, Moth… and I found what you have written accurate and love you messages….but could not find Blue tits & Chickadee, they are very cheerful, friendly, chatty birds, they often come in, could you please include them on your wonderful site. Thank you

  14. Hi,
    I was looking for the symbolism of the Magpie and noticed that it had dissappeared from the old list. I’ve noticed the same for a few other animals though they are still mentioned in old posts. Will they come back? Or is it some bug on my side that won’t allow me to see them?

    Kind regards,


    Ps. Thank you for all your work on this page, I love how unique and specific it is for each single animal. Very different from other pages I’ve seen. You can really feel the effort and thought that has gone into it!

    1. Hi Red:
      Some of the pages have moved and been renamed. If you do a site search for Magpie – it will come up for you.

  15. I had a dream last night where there was a lynx in the house, it was alive, I was scared and then I saw it in the second bedroom and I thought that it was dead but peaceful. I shut the door wondering what to do and a little while later checked on it and I thought that it moved its head but I shut the door thinking that I should call the humane society, then I checked again and my 17 month old corgi was lying beside it sleeping comfortably and this time the lynx was quiet but definitely alive and purring. I was scared for Rocci but did not understand. I was then awake with a very anxious feeling. What does all that mean…

  16. ...........................................

    hi, i was wondering if you could do some extinct animals? i know it is not possible for you to see an extinct animal but it would be nice if you add a few extinct animals for people who have dreams of them or for people that might think that an extinct animal is their spirit animal.

  17. .......................................

    please add a crayfish. you have so many animals but you forgot to include a crayfish.

  18. Cheryl Testawitch

    Hi. I am very pleased and am very thankful for this site and the insight associated with Spirit Animal Totems. I saw a Woodpecker today and have had some attachment to this spirit animal. I would really like some more clarity on the Woodpecker, in regards to the rhythm of the blood.

    People with the woodpecker totem have the power of rhythm in their blood. They have a connection to the heartbeat of the Earth and the cycles that rule it.

    Any additional information would be most helpful to me.

    Thank you kindly. Cheryl

    1. I have also been seeing Woodpeckers and have simultaneously been led to study the Mayan calendar to reconnect to the heartbeat of the Earth and the cycles that rule it. Our Gregorian calendar is irregular and not in harmony with the natural cycles. I feel woodpecker was leading me to find a way to get back in touch with this. or the 13:20 sync app have been very helpful.

  19. Thanks so much for adding Roadrunner to the list of animal spirit guides. I have a pair that live in my back yard in Texas. Two other birds that are very common to my area are Grackles & Flickers (woodpeckers) ; I hope to see these added in the future.

  20. Hello. I’ve been using this site quite a lot in the past year or so. I know this may come off as a bit bizarre, but I’ve had a handful of dreams that involved dinosaurs. Google hasn’t offered me much help save for a website that has some information, but isn’t very detailed or anything.

    Is there any chance you might eventually make a page about them? I feel as if they do still count as guides; they are ancient and are bound to have so much wisdom. If not, it’s no fuss though. Just a curious thought.

    (As a side, perhaps any plans to work on extinct creatures at some point, such as the thylacine? Thylacine has been with me for a while, but I haven’t found a lot regarding them as guides or totems.)

  21. Hi

    I live in the UK and every morning driving to work i see 1 – 3 Common Buzzards in the same place every day. I cannot find anything about Buzzards on here or anywhere else for that matter.



  22. There is a very common bird in Texas called a Grackle, it is a all black bird, about the size of a Robin, with a very long tail. any information will be appreciated.

    1. Find pleasure in doing the things you love! Wasting your energy on things that “cannot be” is fruitless.

  23. I would like to request an Anteater and a Bumblebee (would it be the same as a Honey Bee in meaning?).

    Thanks for your website!

  24. During a drumming journey, I was given the gift of the turtle. I was able to hold it and rub its underbelly. I was also given a droplet of its blood into my right wrist. Open for comments

  25. Hi,

    would you consider adding the treecreeper and the bullfinch someday? Both are birds that are often recurring in my life but sadly their symbolism is almost nonexistent to find anywhere.



  26. Hello! I dreamed of Mink last night, would love if you could add that animal to your list as well! There were 3 of them fighting, and I broke up the fight and one went after me but didn’t actually attack me.

    Thank you for all of your hard work, I visit your site frequently and am so grateful for the guidance! It always resonates with me.

  27. Does anyone know if there’s any particular meaning for a woodlouse?

    At approx. the same time each evening I always have to move one from my bathroom to outside. It’s only ever one, never more. I’ve checked for infestations but can’t find anything, and I never see them at any other time.


  28. tapirs are everywhere in my life/dreams I thought it might have a meaning, does anyone know what it means?
    (I hope there will be a tapir page soon)

  29. In very bright morning 3 killer whales in my cousin sisters home pool. They look very happy and playing with each other and looked lovely. And jump out of water.
    But the it was surprised me because in my sisters’ house they don’t have pool in their rooftop. But in my dream it suddenly happened in one night. Can you tell me what is the meaning of this dream?

  30. my cat misty has been in my dreams for the past week very “angry” hissing showing teeth and claws… also she passed away 3 years ago and I’m unsure of what she’s trying to tell me if anything..
    Can you help.?

  31. Please help i had a dream where i was standing in front of a what looked like a river and the water was very clear i could see what was at the bottom. There was like a foot path right at the bottom and some lovely plants and i called my brother who was nearby to come and have a look. I started to take pictures of the beautiful sightings in the water but then i noticed a raven as i moved close towards it it turned white and when i turned to see if my brother had seen it, when i turned back the tail part was white and the whole body was black i turned again and when i looked it was white again. I moved toward it but it was behind what looked like an anthill when i moved around to try n catch it, i saw a white cork and then white chickens. I was confused and then i woke up. What does this dream mean please help.

  32. Hi:-) I was sitting on the rocks watching the ocean but away from the sand more on the rocks past the sea pool where Silverguls don’t usually go (unless they are resting on the edge of the rocks after fishing). I was thinking about my beloved past cats who I miss so v much. I heard a Silvergul trill gently behind me. I turned around to see “2” Lovebird Silverguls together (Ii checked and Silverguls are monogamous mate for life) they were very loving and sweet together and were trying to connect with me I hope.. I talked to them and they responded with head tilts and gentle gestures like fluffing feathers, nodding all passive movements. (I’ve had the ability to connect with all animals telepathically since I was a child- I don’t try to it just comes naturally – I wish I could save all animals I know thats’ my calling in life but I know I’m being pushed to help people and it angers me I don’t want others burdons empaths have to be extremely careful of others using them as tissues. Anyhow, my question is it is very rare for 2 silvergul to fly together and sit behind me sitting not begging for food it seems they were there for a message but I can’t work out what it could be. Logically it makes sense they probably thought I was going to open some food out of my bag but it wasn’t like that they literally called for my attention I turned around (I was sitting) and there they were not begging. calm, gentle and very loving towards each other. Prior to it I was sad, lonely and uncertain of my future and trying to find my calling in life. Also just wondering do wild animals come to us as guardian angels or are they wild animals who are urged by angelic spirits to send messages – do the wild animals ‘know’ why they are coming to see us? Thank You for your help. Eve x

  33. My father was working the other day he was operating his bobcat which is pretty loud and a hawk flew by him and lit on the ground near him caught a snake even stranger was the hawk hunted the snake while the hawk was on the ground he never dove down on the snake and started to eat my father walk up to the hawk and the hawk never flew off the hawk let my father get really close he was so close he could pet him just found this really odd being the first time this every happen me and my father have had hawks cross our path before just nothing like this maybe the hawk was really hungry?

  34. Just 2 days before yesterday…I had a strange dream. Me and my mother were working in the kitchen, weather outside was somewhat dark because of dark clouds of rain. Then I asked my mother for a polybag to keep the water heatig rod in it and my mother pointed at the polybag which was kept outside containing many old books and register. I looked inside it and told my mother that we should sell them then I saw a big dark green colour bag which was lying under that polybag. My brother’s friend asked his friend to keep that bag there as it was some waste. I opened that bag with my mother to look for what was inside it and found lots of green guavas…they were really many guavas…I was happy to find so many guavas as they were fresh and looked like straight plucked from trees and kept there. Then I find so many old clothes in that bag and under those clothes was a dead old in a pool of blood with green guavas around it…I dont know what this dream means but I am not able to let the thought of this dream go away.
    Somebody pls tell me about what this dream means

  35. This early morning while I was driving, I saw a large female deer and she watched me drive by. She was very majestic looking. And it made me pay more attention since it was still dark out.Then, less than 3 minutes later, a young wolf crossed the road. S/he was by him/herself and looked rather exhausted. Probably no more than 6 months old. I have NEVER seen a wolf where I live (northern Indiana). There must be some special message here!

  36. I just saw a grasshopper on my ceiling and it flew straight beside me I was terrified. However it made me think, look it up I found this website. Everything in me said this is true.”Do what’s right, what needs to be done and stop being afraid”.

  37. I want to know more about a crocodile. Not an alligator, a crocodile. Two very different animals who I’m sure have different meanings as spirit totems. I had a dream where the crocodile was in my house, and dispite me running scared and trying to hid from it, it still find me and not hurt me. Looking back without fear and awake now it seemed like a weird game of tag. Any ideas??? Thanks.

    1. Hi Kristy:
      Crocodile is on our list. We have just recently updated alligator so that we can do a separate one for crocodile. It should be up in a month or two.

  38. Hey

    I am so glad I found this website. A lot of information on what I wanted to know. About an hour ago I was outside and I felt something coming towards me from behind. I turned around and saw a white spirit Labradoodle dog walking towards me. I then felt I didn’t have to worry about anything outside going on. I then came back inside and search up what I saw and your website link come up. Gave me what exactly I needed to know. Thank you so much for this amazing site. xx

  39. Hello,
    Just a request please and thanks for more cat subspecies like you have for dogs. Persian cats for example are very unique and different in personality than say a Bengal and they are very different than a spynx vs Tabby cat vs Ragdoll or Mane Coon. I love the site but this pains me as an avid cat person we just have a special connection and most recently my demanding Persian cream boy was the thing that got me out of the mess of toxic relationship towards healing and he’s so psychic almost it’s quite strange how we read Raj other from different rooms and within minutes are face to face as long as he’s awake anyway 🙂
    Thanks for this website lots of love
    Me & my wild furbaby

  40. I’d love to see “Warbler.” I currently have two above me and they’re just so tiny and adorable! They have a yellow swatch so I think these are yellow rumped warblers. About the size of a bigger hummingbird!

    My intuition tells me Warblers would be:
    Splashed with sunshine, these birds remind us to center in our happy place in solar plexus chakra. A combination of power and lightness of being, these birds can flutter and hover like a hummingbird to snatch bugs out of the air. Likewise we can remember to achieve our little goals, hover and enjoy nourishing ourselves with a lightness and airiness.

    Their song is melodic and beautiful. Perhaps we need to sing and enjoy music more? They have a unique sweetness about them. While they’re very directed and focused at the same time. Maybe a lesson of being direct and focused about what we want while having fun achieving it (don’t let work towards goals weigh us down or be so serious)? And be sweet and cute 🙂 They’re such a neat mix of adorable and intense and I sensed they were protecting me—in a sweet yet strong way?

    Would love to hear your take!!

  41. The Black Dragon Fish, has been crossing my mind a lot lately… and last night, I had a dream about water…

    Could this be my spirit animal? And if so, what is it meaning?

  42. I saw LEMUR (ring tailed) spirit described once in a book ages ago .

    I have a mom and baby who are my spirit friends / guides and Id love some info on them. Thanks!

  43. I would really like to see a page on Chickadees. I live in the United States and I have seen them everywhere in the two states I have lived in (Texas and Oregon). They are really cute creatures that make me really happy to watch. I am a bit curious on what they symbolize, so I hope you consider my suggestion.
    Thank you.

  44. Chrisana Samuels

    I was trying to sleep and I couldn’t I felt so uneasy I opened my eyes and saw something at the top corner of the wall i turn on the lights and it was a fat lizard with a short tail it ran down to the window and I went to tell my mom and when I came back I did not see it. I opened the window and I still have not seen it and it has not gone through the winndow can you tel me what this means or what I should do

  45. Hi,

    I have a Blue Tit bird that visits me frequently and i am trying to acertain its meaning please.

    Kind regards

  46. Ive been seeing woodlice crawl over the floor in my bedroom and Ive never had such an investation before. I found 6 today in my bedroom!

    I was wondering, since it apparently is an animal (I had to look that up too) why it would crawl inside like this. Ive never had this problem before.

    I cant find any pages on it though as a totem animal.

  47. Hello, my name is Jerry. Today I turned 51. I had the police show up at my door because my neighbors notice quite a few vultures sitting on top of my house, the police were making sure I wasn’t dead. Lol this is the weird part. Its been rather cool around 50* and was raining. Been raining for past few days! I told the police it was my birthday but i wasnt that old! I assured the police I wasn’t dead and were welcome to come in and check. Lol I found the whole thing funny but odd at same time. First it was my birthday possibly a coincidence but it was raining and had been raining as well as cold! I’ve never seen vultures in the rain or on cold days ever! Have not seen any since summer. I know it means something but I don’t know what. Felt peaceful bout it but puzzled to. Please feel free to contact me or share the story. Peace from the east, Jerry

  48. I’d love to read about the Swallow. I saved a baby swallow this week and have been looking for some clear messages, but the world has so many conflicting views about what it represents. She had a beautiful song, she sounded so pretty.

  49. Hello I’m writing this to ask a question for myself and my husband. Last night he dreamed that a Indian sent a white cougar after him and it killed him and then he woke up. He says even as a child he has seen white animals. Particularly a white buffalo that just looked at him. What does this mean? I myself as a child saw a black cougar walking in my backyard. I saw it but no one else did. What do these things mean? Thank you.

  50. Hi,

    I had a dream last night and I wonder what would mean to see a white spider (with big body) and a hairy brown and black tarantula crossing my path in a cave?

    Thank you.

  51. Can you do anything about members of the mustelid-family? Like polecats, weasels, stoats, beech martens and such.

    I see stoats (winter-ermines, to be precise) and beech martens on a relatively regular basis, but I don’t know what that could mean.

  52. what is the meaning of these 3 things
    Right before falling asleep, i see faces unkown to me , many of them appear one right after the other until i fall asleep.
    Also about 2 months after my mom died right after , i fell asleep she appeared , was banging on the window moving her lips talking , I couldn’t hear what she was saying because my dog who was sleeping on my bed started barking like crazy and woke me up.
    A golden eagle for years , maybe once or twice a year, flying and shows up and stands right in front of me
    for a fews minutes . We just look at each other, no sound or noise. Nothing unusual going on around me. I have more experiences than this.

  53. Hi! So recently I’ve felt very close with the red panda, so I went on here to find more info about it as a spiritual guide/totem animal but I couldn’t find it. I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight about the red panda as a totem animal. Thanks!

  54. Please add Nightingale. Love… Spirit Animal Totems. Adding Dream interpertations has given me spiritual messages needed on many days to lift the fog.

    I would like to know what the meaning of harvestman is and what lesson this animal has to teach me. There are lots of places that tell me about Spider’s message but nothing on Harvestman. They are related to spiders but don’t spin webs. I am seeing them everywhere and I used to have a huge fear of them (not as bad now). Any help understanding their message would be received with gratitude. Thanks in advance.

  56. I had a strance day yesterday. First when I was leaving for work my power went out for a couple minutes then on then off then stayed on. This was around dawn about 6:30 am. I live in the middle of town and miles from a wooden area. I went outside and notice a fox lying on my neighbors front step next to the door. It got up and walked to the next house and went up to the door sMelle then went to the next. At this house it went to the side of the where a fence meets the house. Then walked up by the front door and quickly walk away to the other side of the along the side of the garden. The it looked like it was leaving the area. Then to my surprise it turned around and headed toward my direction. Then crossed the road and walk in between the house right next to me and the house next to that nieghbor. The fox next came onto my property. What does Ll this mean?

  57. Hi,since you are doing different types of dogs,I was wondering if you could do a pit bull? See,a lot of people think bad about them,especially from what they’ve heard from the media,but pit bulls are actually really sweet and loyal by nature! They’re only bad when they’re being raised by bad people. I hope you do a page about this breed! I would really love to learn more about them!

  59. Good evening. I would like to ask about about a big beatle that flew into my hair tonight! Lol, it startled me a bit…its a ten striped June beatle…I looked it up. What do you think about that!? I often have large moths who visit but nothing like this yet. Lol, anyway im curious to hear your input.

    Much love and gratitude,
    With love and light Kathleen

    1. I have the article ready and am placing it in the publication schedule soon! Look for it on Monday, July 19, 2021!

  60. I have a ween flying into my kitchen. It goes to my light above the sink. And then sings when I come into the room then leaves shortly after. It’s done this several times now. What does a ween symbolize? I wish I understood the song

  61. I found a small swallow bird figurine in my bag and have no idea where it came from! Any input into symbolism of swallow is very much appreciated.

  62. Hello Silken Raven . . .

    I am developing a mindfulness site that will be rooted in the soil of spirit, soul and Mother earth. I would like to highly animal totems each month and then direct people to your website so they can look up animals that have come into their lives or dreams as messengers. Could we connect briefly to discuss this possible collaboration?

    Thank you for the gift of this site!!


  63. Simple request – can you put the totem search box at the top for your mobile site? Or maybe add a quick link to the mobile menu? Very hard to find the search field for a quick search on the go. Thanks for the great site!

  64. I was wondering what the difference was between an animal crossing your path and an animal totem. How do I know what my totems are?

  65. Hi

    Is there any chance you could write about the Octopus? She visits me often in dreams and the dreams that she is in are always very powerful and full of feeling. There are other websites out there that talk about Octopi, but I generally have preferred yours when looking up other animals.



  66. It seems this website has changed it’s looks and skin ? I was looking for the random totem generator as I loved this feature but it seems this has turned into ” Get my message ” ? Really nice improvements, I love this site. For inspiration on even more animals check this website. Love , Me from Holland

  67. Joyce Anastasia

    Brilliant, wise and beautiful service you are doing here…lightspirit of the internet. Thank you…Please contact me as I suspect spirit may be bubbling up collaborative possibilities for the future. I’d love to speak with you.

  68. Hi!

    I just wanted to say that I love the new look of the website! Much easier to look at! 😉

    Angie 😊

  69. I preferred the green old theme of the site. Is there a reason for the change? Is very hard to read with the new layout and colors. Such a great site though!

  70. Really love all the info in your site and find it wonderfully accurate! I have to say though I miss the “post it notes” and the clarity of the “tags” section of the old format 😀

  71. Wandering light

    Do you have any knowledge of Moths and the different types of colors ? Mine do not show up in dreams they show up in reality and they seem to coincide with death for me . When i was younger moths would always hover around me even in broad daylight i know they are nocturnal though , they always place theirselves on my room door frame either on the right or the left. the first main one being a abnormally large black moth that situated itslef at one of the entrances to my room at the time . It would not move day and night for two weeks. I then recieved a call that both my maternal grandfather and greatgrandfather passed . I was close to my mothers father and not really close to her mothers father they passed the same weekend . After the calls i noticed the moth was gone . Just last night same thing happened i thought it weird it was out in the daytime then i thought i was gone until it showed up on my room door again odd thing is when it opened it wings its brown and red drsigns made me think it was a butterfly and not a moth? But when it landed on my door it stayed their would not moved when being shooed or even when i turned the lights on and off? I dont know if its a totem i know that it means different things for different cultures and im just lost im polynesian there is rumors of native American ancestry in my line but idk i dream of natives a lot and im often mistaken by natives as either Navajo or Cherokee they usually walk up to me and start speaking in their native tongue then they stop and look at me waiting for my response i smile and they usually end with “oh, you never learned our language?” I explain that I am polynesian and they look at me strange and walk away. Obviously i need major help lol ive been combing the web and nothing and what i do find i must be cautious of well because its the internet any insight would help . Thank you

  72. Please add Carp, Dragon, Ox, Rooster to your website. Fire Rooster is a Phoenix. The Year 2017 is the Year of the Fire Rooster. Carp is a broader area of interpretation than Koi . Thanks for your kind consideration.

  73. I am curious as to how to find my totem animals. I have been a practicing pagan, following a more shamanistic path, for almost 17 years. My one constant totem is the wolf, but the others seem to change depending on my needs or what i am going through in life at the time. Im just wondering if this is normal?

  74. Last night I dreamt of flying robins and believe this may be a good sign but as a solitary bird I’m wondering about the meaning behind several robins flying together. I hope someone can enlighten me 🙏🏻

    Hi Hun ,, in regards to your statement , you must understand that our animal guides are not chosen by us they choose us ,, sure most people wish they had the so called cool ones but I can tell you that for one most all the time when they are unexpected they are more right for you then wrong ,, they don’t make mistakes ,, the butterfly is yours ,,also remember that we have more then one type .
    Life guide , shadow guide , message and journey .
    Life stays with us to the end , shadow invades our lives in times of testing and when we are not getting the message , journey comes at time of a fork in the road in our lives and stays until our patch is understood and message guides are just that one time messages type thing and then gone when we get the message.
    What we should do with our guides is research them , understand everything about the animal ,this is the best way to pay respect to our guides and also I think you will find that you have more in common with the butterfly then any other ,, or perhaps you have nothing in commen but it’s what is needed most .. Myself I have many many animal guides my life guide is a camel .. Lol I have no connection what so ever with a camel but after reading up on them and the spirit meanings of the camel I realize this animal is the coolest one for me and I wouldn’t think of another ..
    Try and learn all you can , don’t offend your animal guide it will make your life difficult and I don’t mean (it) the butterfly but the imbalances that it creates ..
    Hope this helps .one last thing I can sense that you need to be a lot more spiritual in your life , it will level things out and get rid of that feeling that’s your here for something more ,,and so much more ..

  76. @ Amy

    This signifies goals in your life ,, the highways meaning is that of direction , I’m assuming that the highway was clear of traffic , otherwise I think you would have noticed it , the coons symbolism is that of deceit and not being completely honest with yourself , now the dogs attacking this animal represents your conflict of internal loyalty to one self and having a problem keeping this issue at bay (guilt) type of emotion . In short ..
    At this time in your life with the direction of your headed you need to stay honest and loyal to your goals , pay attention to any opportunities the come but make sure you make no move that’s dishonest to achieve them .. Stay on the path of righteousness..

  77. @Inggetje

    Hi there this is my first attempt at answering a email. Please if I did it wrong bare with me ..
    The white rabbit is a guide to steer you in the right direction , in this case I would say that the action of putting down your camera and taking the time to sit with the boy was the right thing to do , take a min to not only document things of importance but also get involved however you can to make others heard and or feel that we care about them ,, that simple act may be a moment that he will never forget .
    In return he may carry out an act that was kinda a ripple effect of your Careing that may just live forever , if you need to understand more of what I’m talking about read up on karma ..
    Thank you for your mail
    Best wishes

    1. Millipeds are significant in telling you that you have some fear that’s preventing you from achieving goals in your life.

  78. Please can anyone explains these to me………Cuz i saw myself picking lots of crabs into a bucket in my dream…..I need answer please.

    1. Hi Simeon
      Most all dreams have a feeling that accompanies the visual , if you can tell me what your emotions were at time of dream and a little more information I would be happy to help .. I don’t want to say anything without all the information because it changes things drastically and there’s nothing that can be more dangerous for ones mental state is to be told the wrong thing and to take it seriously ,, please I don’t do this for any reason but to help others .. Hope to hear from you soon.

  79. ❓ Hello there! I love your spirit animal interpretations and I share them all the time. I would like to use a number of your descriptions/links for my website which is under construction at the moment. Could you please derive a interpretation for the Oriole bird or specifically the Black Hooded Oriole? Thank you so much for your consideration and I hope to hear from you soon. 🙂

  80. Hello..I recently had a dream where a huge oversized Black Wolf with golden eyes walked up to me..I pet him in my dream and felt the texture of his fur and then he was laying beside me on my bed…when I woke up I was petting my blanket???,,it felt so real I even smelled him…is this my spirit animal????..Thank you .Leala

    1. Yes if you were asking to be introduced to your spirit animal then that wolf is one of your current guides. As for the rest of the meaning I would need a lot more information in order to really decipher your dream .. You need to put together a lot of things in your life in order to properly breakdown what a dream really means..

  81. HI! I have recently done a power animal retrieval on my daughter, and she received Walrus… I have been having trouble finding out much about Walrus, and wondered if you had anything further that I could add to the research I have been doing!

    1. The walrus inhabits both land and water, but is most agile when in water. It is a superb swimmer with the ability to dive as deep as the ocean floor. The walrus maneuvers quite speedily on land as well. It walks on all four fins, unlike other pinnipeds that have to drag their lower bodies with their fore fins. Walrus’ live in large herds, dependent on the group for its survival. The group will join together to protect a single walrus that becomes under attack.

      As a totem walrus teaches the importance of connectedness and the lesson that each individual is important. Its tusks serve as a tool for climbing out of the water onto the ice, but can also use its tusks for defensive purposes when attacked. The walrus also has a thick-skin which serves as an armor to protect it from its natural predators. The walrus is a multifaceted character that is interesting to study. Walrus is said to be the keeper of wisdom and secrets…read more>>>…

    1. The best way to do this is to find a Shamanic practitioner in your area to complete the ceremony…

    2. One way for us to find out animal totem is to practice meditation, during this in short you will ask permission to be allowed to be put into contact with your animal guide .
      Now assuming that you have nailed down the art of meditation which as we know isn’t always easy to control because the very thing we are trying to do is let go of all control trying to focuse our state at times can be difficult .
      When in meditative state look for animals around your visual location without projecting one to that place and when you see somthing showing itself you must wait to be approached by the animal in order to properly confirm that that animals will is your guide we get sensations that will accompany its arrival .at the same time contact must happen , some type of personal experience is what your looking for .. When this contact happens people generally know .. It’s somthing that stands out a lot more then your wandering mind will create ..
      Make sure that if and when you get contact and even touch with the animal that your great full , these things come as they are needed so it’s not on our clocks this happens it’s theirs .. Regardless they are around us and if they chose to show to you you will know ,,

  82. Last night my daughter’s friend brought me a pack of newports.When he arrived at my home my cat tired to attack him a few times. She was acting like a guard dog that was on a chain just going from one side of the room to the next side of the room.She kept trying to attack him.This was his first time over my house.She has never done this before And I have never seen anything like this in my life.Also her mouth was open like she was panting.

    1. Animals are extremely intuitive , the fact that your cat has gone after him that much definitely shows that either there’s a scent on him that your cat is reacting to or its sensing that he may have an attachment on him form the spirit world that is not good.
      Try having him in another day and bring pack of smokes with him again .. If same thing happens he should get to talk with someone regarding what neg things are going on in his life.
      As a mother you can I’m sure sense if he’s bad ,, it’s sounding like he’s not and the cat is picking up on an entity that has chosen to stick with him for whatever reason .. Be careful that it doesn’t stay in your house , you should either get your house cleansed with sage by a light worker and or you can do this yourself .. If you are worried to this point look up the house cleaning with sage methods online and do a little cleaning of your own ..

  83. I dreamt a white fox kit came running to me…. it had a broken chain around it’s neck. And I took the chain off to set it free. But it followed me instead… and I looked up to see a german shepard coming toward us…. then i woke up

  84. Hi I wanted to know why I’m having a spider dream and not just any spider a black and yellow garden spider in the 1st dream it was just there not moving and nothing else was there just the spider and I woke up scared the second time I was on an airplane and this old couple tried to shoo it away from the seat in front of them but the spider walked across the seat down the side and I guess it spun a Web because it walked across to the seat in front of me and it terrified me that I could not move and and my wife was with me in this dream and she was frightened also can someone tell me what this means

    1. Spider dreams ,, they almost always have somthing to do with the ladies ,, mom ,, girlfriend , wife etc .. In your case ,, it’s a hard one cuz your so afraid of them but ,,, here’s what these spiders mean
      To see a spider climbing up a wall in your dream denotes that your desires will be soon be realized. To dream that a spider is coming down on you from the ceiling indicates that you are unable to escape from some relationship. If you dream of baby spiders, then they symbolize a new or recent relationship…also spiders are in right of their own ,, known for sticky situation and being trapped etc,, looking at your life and comparing things that are trapping you in life , financial , relationships and other life situations that may be starting to feel like you can’t get out .. Seeing spiders also can have meaning with mother figures at the same time ,
      For the reacurring side of this dream would point to you having a fear in life (other then spiders) and your feeling trapped in a situation .
      This may sound funny but if you want to enhance your life and rig yourself of some of this fear you have with things talk to someone about dealing with your arachnophobia… The process of conquering that will empower you to a great extent ..

  85. Hello. I have seen a Red Fox cross my path twice within a 7 day period PLUS Hawks have been numerous flying over head…as many as “3” at a time within the same 7 day period. Can you please help me to understand?

  86. I dreamed there was a green and yellow snake hiding under my white sheet on my bed and only his large head was sticking out as if he were hiding and watching me. And I hear these three knocks in my dream for the past three nights that literally wake me up but there is no one there. Is there a connection between the snake hiding and the three knocks.

    1. Snakes generally have many meanings , again the emotion that you were feeling in the dream must be put together with the visuals ,, for me to tell you anything without the knowledge of your emotional state in the dream could result in completely the wrong information ,
      I can tell you that your being sent a message that is urgent , the fact that your waking every time this dram happens , and the fact it reapers means you haven’t got the message ,, in your case the snake is what’s called a shadow animal , they are sent only for the reason of getting you a message , now shadow animals always come in dreams with a feeling of fear ,, this is normal but in order to decipher your dream properly please get back I need more info.. In short .
      It seems like there is an intimate issue and there is somthing that perhaps you or another your sharing your bed with is hiding ,,this snake is a good omen I’m of course thinking as if your emotional state in this dream was fear,, otherwise none of this would add up ..
      In short hidden confrontation From one that shares your bed and or are emotionally invested in
      Knowledge and the three knocks are a way of telling you this matter needs attention , it seems to be urgent if it’s waking you night after night and your having the same dream also .. It’s a pretty strong way of trying to get you to listen
      also this knocking serves to tell you that there is a new situation or something ,someone that wants to be a part of your life , keep in mind NOTHING can get any closer to you unless you invite it to come in ..
      This way you have kinda a level of protection .
      I can give you more info on this dream if I have. Little more information.. Feel free to contact me ..

      Hope everything goes as well as what I see for you ..

  87. hi.When i was small a green mamba came a few feet away from me and just sat the looking at me and then slide away. A few months later i was almost bitten by a black mamba and ever since then i have always had dreams about snakes, snakes under my bed or somewhere around me just watching me> I even came across a few dead snakes while walking. Today i opened the back door and found snakes skin by my door. Please tell me what does all this mean as i am deadly afraid of snakes.

    1. As a positive symbol, snakes represent healing, transformation, knowledge and wisdom. It is indicative of self-renewal and positive change. In particular, if you dream of a multi-colored or brightly colored snake, then it is a clear warning about something bad happening. Dreaming of a red snake highlights the positive characteristics of the snake, as well as your fiery passion. To see a baby snake in your dream means that you are underestimating some threat in your waking life. To see the skin of a snake in your dream represents protection from illnesses.Besides all that commen insights to snakes .. You seems to have quiet the connection with snakes and your ongoing life ,, it’s also likely that if your dreaming of snakes with fear as the dominant emotion that it’s your shadow guide trying to get a message to you that you have not learned as of yet ,, if you have had many many dreams of snakes in this way and not ever done anything to sort what the message is and action to be taken they can get dangerous , not often will they manifest into our living world but if this is the case with you then it’s well past the time for you to learn what is the connection with your living life and spiritual side of what the snake is trying to say …A Shadow Animal Guide is one that invades you with fear. Its purpose it to teach a lesson you have not learned from repeated mistakes because of anger, avarice, greed, insecurity, or other negative thoughts. A Shadow Guide will return again and again bearing strong feelings of fear until its message is acted upon or a change in lifestyle or actions are incorporated into your life. The Shadow Guide is powerful. It can help you to overcome fear by bringing truth and turning fear into a helper animal guide or spirit animal guide. However, if ignored the Shadow Guide can become dangerous and its powers will have a negative affect on your life. The Shadow Guide lives in the spirit world and usually arrives during a time of testing.
      Also As a symbol of renewal and transmutation, land snakes do not require food to generate body heat and they lay motionless and soundless against the earth absorbing the heat of the sun and the earth. To those lives to whom the snake slithers into, be aware of its subtle and silent messages. Before this may be possible, it is necessary to become balanced in your path and ground yourself to Mother Earth and all of its elements.

      Just before the snake begins to shed its skin, its eyes turn pale blue or opaque giving it a trance-like appearance as if the snake is looking right through you. Snake spirit guides teach ways to look into the hearts of others and find ways to help them along their spiritual paths.

      hope this helps ,, you def have to start trying to get over your fear of snakes ,, this will make any messages more clear as not tainted by a high emotional issue .. Good luck you fam do it .. I promis that if you conquer your fear your messages will come clearly .

    1. Dragons ,, well ,, this is rare ,, here ya go ,,
      To�see a dragon in your dream represents your strong will and fiery personality. You tend to get carried away by your passion, which may lead you into trouble. You need to exercise some self-control.�If you dream about the birth of a dragon, then it refers to your emerging passion and strong will. In particular, dreaming of a metal dragon signifies an unyielding character, a water dragon symbolizes�quiet confidence, a wood dragon means an analytical and logical mind, a fire dragon refers to a competitive nature and leadership and an earth dragon signifies sociability.

      In the eastern cultures, dragons are seen as spiritual creatures symbolizing good luck and fortune.
      To dream that you are a dragon and breathing fire suggests that you are using your anger to get your own way.
      Now this is based off of what dream interpretation it has but ,, for you best I can do is tell you take pieces of this info and turn it into parts of your life and personality , because this is being used as possibly your guide it’s very difficult to say anymore with out me having direct info from you ,, but it’s def good ,, the place your in with life right now or in near future is pretty solid .. Check this out and I hope you find the similarities with this and your thoughts … Keep an eye on what the spirit is trying to tell you ,, and when or while your doing that remember what the dragon stands for ..

  88. Hi,

    Requesting you to add Mongoose on this website.
    This is a great website and I look forward to reading the messages everyday.

  89. Hello!,

    I have been looking for information on spirit animals because I am trying to figure out what my spirit animal is. My problem is that, for the last several years, I have been having dreams about gryphon transformations, and I don’t know if it has anything to do with my spirit animals or not. (My gryphon form is usually half-tiger/half golden eagle.) However, my questions are these: What do you do if you want more information on spirit animals that are not listed on your website? Are there plans to add mythological creatures to the spirit animal list? Or do I have to simply look at the tiger spirit animal page and the eagle spirit animal page and piece together an interpretation?

    Thank you for reading 🙂 !

    Have a fantastic day!

    – Signed,

    T’awna (Tee-on-a) M. 😆

    1. Hello T’awna:
      We are slowly adding more and more animals to this website (although not quite as fast as I would like to). There are also a number of animals on here that could use a rewrite and more information about them as well. This website is an ongoing project that keeps growing. Until such time as we start adding mythical animals your best bet is to combine the pages of the animals in question. There are also many other resources to find the information you seek.

    2. This type of thing is a lot more in depth then any website can offer , you no doubt have knowledge about this type of thing but perhaps you should talk to a physcic and sort out what is with the complicated state of your totems .. I have some gifts myself and could offer some help but would need to speak with you more on current life situations and what you chakra state may be ,,
      The simple answer for this is to meditate on it now prior to starting you must think in order for you to be shown your animal guide you must have it show itself and also very important is that it allows you to touch and or follow it ,, this Action itself is what tells you that it’s not just any animal and that whatever shows and allows contact is your animals guide . Keeping in mind that animal guides , shadow animals ,life guides and a few others are not the same thing and have very different reasons for showing itself and staying in your life , normally these more complicated creatures are not as much your animal guides as they are things trying to pass a message or in some cases just confirming situations in your current life .. Trying to piece that together will be difficult on your own ,, contact a gifted person for a reading if you want to simplify things

    3. If I may add to Ravens remarks .. The griffin signifies two of the top dominating animals the lion and the eagle ..
      Put together it’s meaning or messages are prob a lot more extensive then what I could send you here but
      is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle’s talons as its front feet. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle the king of birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The griffin was also thought of as king of all creatures. Griffins are known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions….
      If you can put together the current things that were going on in your life with this mythological creature as they say you could more then likely find your answer ,, our animal guides change as needed and if your feeling all these changes perhaps you should re assess what you current anImal guide may be ,, the Griffin in your case is probably your life guide (animal) not spirit guide anImal , there is a few different animal guides that have different meanings some of these show themselves and help you through decision making processes and others bring messages for one time use ..try to narrow things down a little more with your meditation and focuse on what comes at that time ,, asking for the animal guide to come to you but most importantly it must allow contact or a connection otherwise your not ready to be in tune with it and it’s message will not come clearly .. It will come ,,, good luck

  90. Okay so I have had a couple of things happen. Last month the month of May, One day I was driving to church on a Wednesday evening and I saw a turtle crossing the road. I stopped and waited to make sure that beautiful creature made it across. It was on a back road, not a busy road at all. And it crossed from the left to the right. So a couple of weeks went buy and one morning on a Saturday morning I was taking my daughter to work and once again on a back country road there was another little beautiful turtle crossing in front of me and once again I stopped and waited to make sure it got to the other side. This time it was crossing from the right to the left. So fast forward to a couple of days ago, I pulled out of my driveway on my way to take care of some errands and right after I pulled out a beautiful doe came out of the woods ran along side of my car for about half a min. before veering back into the woods. I was so astonished but at the same time felt absolutely blessed to have this happened to me. So what does this all mean. It has to mean something.

    1. Do you practice any type of spiritual activity or get into meditation etc ?
      Seeing your in the country makes some of what you experienced just that a beautiful experience BUT it could also mean that you are being sent a message from the animal world aka animal guides etc .. When I focus on people for the reasons of readings ,, animals for me come through more then most other spirit .. If you consider all this to be meaning somthing you should look at the meanings of seeing turtles in dreams and deer ,, even though this was no dream in the case of someone that is not practising any spiritual and or physcic type elements in your life there could be a connection , not being able to get any message noticed by you via dreams etc can result in real life occurrences in order to get your attention ,, in my little bit of knowledge in order for this to be happening it’s either just pure luck or there’s someone /thing desperately trying to get your attention .. Start by looking up dreams and their meanings and keep an eye out for other things happening around you and if they keep happening and your getting the feeling its not just luck etc them perhaps you need to start practicing meditation and in this way it will take you a step closer to getting the message if there is one ..the spirit world can be very persistent ,, if your open to this type of thing I suggest trying ,,

  91. I have crow as a totem….the other day crow flew across my path while driving with snake dangling from beak…..any idea what this means….keep my eye on the prize????

  92. I wonder if you could tell me what it means to be with a wild rabbit at death? I witnessed a baby bunny get hit by a car, and I was with it when it died. I didn’t want it to be alone. This has affected me deeply, and I know that there had to have been a reason I was there at that very moment. Any ideas?

    1. Hi Sioux

      In this case I don’t think that it was any message there for you to get .. I think it was for the rabbit to have another energy there while it passed .
      If you wanted to take a message from this ,, just take the fact that your a pure spirit with love and careing for another living thing was noticed.
      This will no doubt install more passion in your waking life and create a memory for you to perhaps use one day in the future , a story that may very well be passed to younger family and that story will alter their lives in a positive way .
      Such small things will have a greater impact on others at times more them ourselves..
      All the best

  93. I had the weirdest dream and was wondering if anyone can help me with it. My mother has been dead for over five years now. I had a dream that involved her and I know to dream of a dead relative its a means of warning. I know this because she was warning me. Her exact words to me were “The Cherokee are coming to take your book of shadows and the water is in the house.” That was all that was said to me before my husband woke me up. Can anyone help me out??

    1. You should contact a physcic , the fact that your mother is passing these messages and involving the book of shadows , to which has spiritual involvement and the warning of natives coming I’m assuming not your truck ..
      I would take what little info I have form you and say a lot has to do with emotions and much more being put together but , if you are not a spiritual person in the sense that you don’t practice meditation and other forms of the same sort I I would take that warning in a spiritual way , perhaps you are being told that you need to take notice to your spirit and it’s state of being , maybe your mother is warning of your losing a piece of your spirit to an event , does your family have native connections ? All these things come together to form a clearer picture but gather as much info about the dream such as your feelings during , emotions and the same of what your mother was giving off , If she was under stress , happy sad etc.take notice to the colour of the water , it’s movement etc and wrote all this down so that you can give the information to someone that can help .. If you find the proper physcic I would bet that your mother would come forward pretty fast and the message will be given without much prob.
      If you want to contact me with more information I can see if I can help , I have some gifts myself I’m a light worker and or if not me I know of some friends that can definitely help .. Either way , always take notice to anything coming from family in the form of warnings it more then likely will or could have a big impact on your life .
      Don’t wait too long try and get this sorted asap , I can feel that it’s of great importance and needs to be addressed .. Also keep looking for any other signs from your mother ,, songs , dreams , feelings etc . And record the time and place and what your were thinking about when anything of this sort comes to you …
      Good luck to you and I hope you get it sorted soon enough ..

    2. Also if you do not practice Wicca or witchcraft , then this message can mean that you are coming up to a spiritual opening , it’s as far as I can tell a positive thing not at all neg ,, now if your basement floods I don’t know but it’s no doubt all about spiritual comings , I think your mother wants to make sure you take the opportunity to start getting enlightened if your not already ..

  94. Can you give me info on the wild boar or pig as a totem animal. It is not a common one.Thank you for your time.

    1. To see a wild hog in your dream symbolizes ferocity, strength, and courage. You are expressing a desire to escape from your daily life and your responsibilities, especially if the wild hog in your dream is running.

      To dream that you are hunting a wild hog indicates your need for some balance in your life. You are trying to suppress your desires for independence.

      Now keeping in mind that emotions play the biggest part of sorting what dreams and their messages actually mean . This is the basic version of what the symbolic meaning is of seeing what you did .
      If it’s that simple I hope this helped if your looking for more then please get back to me with more information
      ie , what was your emotional state during the dream , location , and anything else in the dream that you can recall no matter how small or insignificant it may seem the little things is what really can change things ..
      Feel free to contact me directly if your looking for more ..

  95. First Fox to present itself was a white female second was a sick red male Fox with food in his mouth third is a healthy female red Fox what exactly do they mean ? I love foxes always have wolves and falcon

  96. Hi, I’d like to know about the meaning of seeing a fox at night. I was coming home around 1.30 am on New Year when I saw this red fox staring at me just 5 metres away in the street, and then he turned around and left. He didn’t look aggressive or dangerous, but kept eye contact for a few seconds. My father died a little over a month ago, and my current situation is very uncertain in many ways. Please help me understand the meaning of this, it’s the first time in my life that I meet a fox so close. I’ve seen one in the past just crossing the garden but it was not like this. Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Trish

      Sorry to hear of your father I can try and help the best I can , it’s always hard when we lose someone even more so when it’s family.
      Now normally I would not focus on someone without their consent as it’s like I’m peering into private matters but under these circumstances I feel that you need to hear certain things .
      Only you will know if seeing the fox has anything to do with your father I can sense that your looking for a connection between your fathers passing to the next life and having this spiritual moment with that fox,
      Now saying that I can tell you that there are many different meanings of seeing foxes (in dreams) and sometimes some of us are lucky enough to get messages through real life experiences. Seeing this fox at this time in your life says that your going through a period of isolation and loneliness , this is actually what one of the meanings of seeing fox is about , it no doubt ties in with your current add to the sighting it also can mean that there is a insight , cleverness and resourcefulness . its very possible that your father is telling you that you need to take that insight , cleverness and resourcefulness into your waking life. He can see your stuck ,, and wants you to use the abilities you have to help you get through this time in your life. Spirit will use any means they can to convey messages and or help their loved ones overcome the pain and depression of losing them . In your case the this fox was most likely sent to cross your path so that you would take notice spiritually . Moment such as those are very special , and being blessed with your father more then likely having an assist in your emotional state when you saw this fox created a moment in time that you no doubt will never forget ,, hence catching your attention ..
      Take that experience and know that the message your being sent through this very personal meeting with that fox is one of positive hope and knowledge that family and others we know that pass over are always with us and in your case is sending you this for the purpose of helping you get through your time of loss.
      Without getting into much more personal detail I can tell you that if you take this powerful moment and use it to focus on the the fact that your feeling so uncertain and your seeing this fox tells me that you have more strength then you think to get through , also if you can remember when you were locking eyes with the fox did you not feel the connection ? There is not a connection between foxes and us unless we raised them and still would not be as deeply emotional as your encounter without your father being a big part of it ..
      Know this , he’s with you always will be and will continue to be until you don’t need his support anymore ,, and even then they stick around if not just to watch and stop in and check on our lives ..
      I hope this helps you , there’s only so much I can do through messages such as this but I do know and can say that yes what your thinking is correct ,, they are connected and I hope you take this special moment and use it to get through your hard time.
      In the future when your wondering things ,, stop and listen you will get some type recognition and you will just know ..
      Good luck to you keep your head up..

  97. I would love to see what you have to say on the snail. Today in meditation, I saw a rather sudden and crisp vision of a lovely peach-colored snail. It literally spun into my awareness! For some reason, I’ve been drawn to this site in particular to get a meaning and am also repelled from reading any other interpretations (It’s all quite strange, but I’m just going with it : p) As a sort of P.S., I appreciate the quality of this site – I think it is the best of it’s type : )
    Hope you can add Snail to the list.
    Thanks : )

    1. Yes that’s a rare vision to have during med,, here’s what I get
      To see a snail in your meditation suggests that You are feeling inhibited, but desire to be more outgoing and energetic. Alternatively, a snail suggests that you are making steady progress toward a goal. You need to go at your own pace.
      Now that’s the general stuff that you’ll find , but if you put together your (from what your saying) crisp and colourful part of your meditation I would go with noticing the things about the snail that pertain to your life ,, the snail isn’t the most beautiful creature we have here but the way you saw it was ,, it’s about the simplicity and connection you have with nature so sure the snail signifiers are that of steady pace and energy you got from that moment is turned into energy for you to use for things in your life that are needing slow and steady pacing to accomplish things .. More then anything it’s just a settle bit for you to use with the added meanings of seeing it during meditation ..there isn’t a lot to say but I can feel that you already have taken what you need form this ..

  98. Hi, going though a big transformation fase I just woke up from a dream where a chameleon crossed my path. Maybe something to add to its dreammeaning?
    The dream:
    I would like to share my favorite terrase-with-view with my parents. We walk in an open hallway where the green vegetation is blocking the way. A few days before the vegetation wasn’t so wild and I have to work a way true. I’m calm and concentrated in clearing the way while mom and dad are following me.
    Passing the gate to the terrase a beautiful little chameleon on the right side catches my attention. Seeing this new creature on this spot gives me a feeling of joy and happiness that I share with mom and dad. It is not scare and stays where it is…
    How I love to observe the chameleon, it’s time to continue walking towards the terrasse.
    I wake up…

    “Chameleons are fearful and hostile, which is why they feel the need to remain unnoticed by blending in with their environments. ”
    I’m leaving my camouflage/ hiding away behind…

    Loving this website,
    Many greetings

    1. Hi Teresa
      This dram symbolizes the freeing of some part of your life that was isolated and or lonely .. The fox stands for cleverness cunning and resourcefulness , having it chained would symbolize that those qualities are being held back or chained down .. If you look through your life and search for the connection between the issues of feeling isolated and lonely , maybe spiritually and or work related in some way but I feel it’s more to do with your personal thoughts and the way your being made to feel on some topic that is important to you but others don’t seem to feel the same type thing .. Either way ,, this is a good thing , your free to and always have been free to feel what you want but the things that were holding that feeling back is soon to be gone ,,
      To add to that srry I forgot was that your roll as caretaker of your folks is changing , before you were feeling unnoticed when it came to certain aspects of your relationships with them .. Now as you stated , no camo needed your doings will be noticed ,,,

  99. I recently saw a black fox (grey or red) between the woods and my neighbour’s house. As soon as he saw me he ran into the woods. I have never seen a black fox before and was wondering what the coat colour could symbolize. Please email me with your responses. thanks

  100. Hello, I am a middle school student in Idaho, and I would like to ask permission to download the picture of an opossum that appears [at the top of your home page]. I would like to include it in a school assignment. Thank you, A.Sherman

    1. Hello Adreanna: The best place for you to find what you are looking for in images is through this website: Do a search for Opossum there and make sure that you check the appropriate boxes for what you need. Most of our images do come from the Creative Commons – however we are upgrading to purchased images so not all of our photos are still available.

  101. I came home from my daughter’s house.. and I walked in the door.. and I heard this loud noise.. I followed the sound of something churping.. adn i wa a big black cricket sitting on the bottom of my bed.. just churping like nobody was there with him.. my friend scooped him up.. and put him outside for me.. the cricket was very loud and he seemed quite comfortable.. what does this mean… 🙂

  102. Grasshopper has significant meaning to me at this point in my life. Today I saw one missing almost all of his wings. Had a hard time moving. Any ideas on what this could mean? Thanks!

  103. Hello,
    My cat had passed away a couple of years ago on my bed. However, it seems like his spirit is still in the apartment as my other cat keeps calling him. Unfortunately, we did not keep his remains.
    I will be moving shortly and wondering if there is such a thing as to have the passed cat’s spirit taken with us or will the bed suffice.
    Thank you for any response.

  104. I’d like to see information on cardinals. I see them often in the city and had an unusual experience with one. I was driving at about 35 mph when one flew right at my driverside window, stopped abruptly, fluttering his wings as if trying to get my attention and then in an instant was gone, without hitting the car. It seemed his whole purpose was simply to get my attention. This was a male, bright red, and this happened very early in the morning, at first light.

  105. Hi,
    You have opossum on your site. It is a regular entry but you fail to mention it on your site map. It also does not show up when you click on “Explore the world of the Land Animal Totem and the message they bring you.” When you do a totem search, it does not lead you to the full page of information on the opossum. In fact, the only way I can access it is by using Google while doing a search under “opossum animal totem.”

    Yet, I did get the opossum once, last week, in a Four Direction reading. I just could not access the information on it through your other links.

    Doing my share to improve your absolutely wonderful site!

  106. Hi-
    I love your site! I’m part Cherokee and really feel a connection with this. I really want to learn more. How do you find out what your true spirit animal is? I feel like I connect with a tiger, but I have have come across scorpions in my house over the last 24 years, in an area where they aren’t home too. Also, its description is m . How do I find out? Thanks so much!

  107. Hello, I have a question about a yellow bellied marmot. I cam upon an injured one last summer & rescued him before he was hit by another car. He survived and was released back to nature. This rescue led to a chance meeting of a man (who just happened to pull into a parking lot & helped me find a box) this man has become the love of my life. We have been together almost a year since that day. Had i not happened to drive by that rockchuck at the moment I did, I probably never would have met this man. This meeting came after a very emotionally difficult divorce from my husband of 20 yrs. I had come quite a long way emotionally by the time I met this new man but had thought I may never fall in love again… Was wondering what the marmot may symbolize in terms of love.
    Thank you so much!

  108. Hi Silken Raven

    Thank you for this portal.
    Could you please add Scottish Terrier to the totem list? I dreamt I saw a black one with thick wings flying around outside a window.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

  109. Hello- I have a couple of general questions. I have crows and red tailed hawks visit and fly near me often. These creatures are native to my area and are sighted regularly. Is there a different significance because of that? Meaning, I’m beginning to doubt messages they may be showing me because they visit so often. Also, can/do our animal guides change throughout our life? I’ve done my meditation to find them perhaps 8-10 years ago. Do those same animals guide us for life?

  110. A friend lead me on a journey to find my spirit animal several years ago. What I encountered looked to be a cross between an elk and a moose. He said that what I saw must mean I had two spirit animals. I disagreed. I remember this massive ancient animal staring down on me judging me and finding me wanting. It wasn’t two spirits together it was one power. Anyway that thought drove me to find out what it was. For some reason I focused on the moose and poured through natured books and sites to find it. Then on a whim the ancient aspect popped into my head one day and did a search for extinct moose. What I found was the stag moose and my spirit animal.

    Now my questions. Is it okay to have an extinct animal as a spirit or was my friend right, and the stag-moose just wish full thinking? If I’m right and it is the stag moose, should I look to the moose for general knowledge as they were believed to live much the same, and what additional knowledge should I take as it is extinct?

  111. a wild boar approached me in my meditations recently, but i cant seem to find a page for it or any of its porcine cousins

    thank you for this site it has been a source of continuing synchronicity for me

  112. your wonderful site has answered questions sought for many years. Would love to see a listing for the platypus as discussion group option. 35 years plus with extremely unique experience still needing another traveller’s shared knowledge to help with a long sought insight of meaning or explanation. I know in my hearts heart there are others who have shared something akin to my experience. This involves first traveling inward… for the first time seeing my longtime “observer” in my minds eye and received a message via ‘a look”; and then my body involuntarily snapping into a perfectly straight form with head back and mouth open. A sound unlike anything I had ever heard came from my mouth that I have never been able to replicate or find any information explaining anything that could help me know more as to meaning or the process of what occurred. Any assistance or direction would culminate many years of seeking. I am very comfortable with direct contact and would welcome same/help.

  113. Roadrunner…I recently encountered my very first roadrunner on a trip to the south this weekend and upon research it appears to the Native American Indian tribes they are for protection, quick action/mental alertness/thinking and also good luck 🙂 It was awesome to see the little guy dart back and forth. I just love animals and I feel it is a great blessing when one crosses my path with a message 🙂

  114. (Somehow replying to our own post at WOLF section didn’t work, but really wanted to thank you)
    Thank you so much for replying Silken Raven! It’s interesting to read and think about and I guess it all makes sense.
    Lots of love and light to you!

    1. I LOVE YOUR SITE !!!
      Baie dankie, dis die BESTE animal-totem site wat ek nog teëgekom het !

      I do miss one bird… namely the fiscal flycatcher… 🙏
