    Dexterity and Disguise
    The magic of the Raccoon is in its mask.


    Masks are a powerful magical tool:
    you can achieve altered states
    through the use of mask,
    you can become
    someone or something else
    behind a mask.




    A Raccoon totem can teach you how to wear masks for many reasons

    as the need arises.
    It can teach you how to mask, disguise and transform yourself.
    Don't you act differently with your boss, parents, children, husband, friend, strangers.
    Those are all masks you put on.
    Masks are one of the tools of transformation.
    It helps us to change what we are into what we want to be.
    Raccoons also teach you how to put asleep the part of you that is not needed
    and awaken the aspect of yourself that is.
    If you are a Raccoon person, eating mostly fruit and vegetables will be beneficial to your health.
    A Raccoon totem has a long influence on your life.
    It is not a short-time totem, but rather will stay with you for a long time.

    OWL




    Magic, Omens, Wisdom


    The owl is the symbol of
    the feminine, the moon and the night.
    The owl is the bird of magic and darkness, of prophecy and wisdom.

    The owl is associated with Athena.

    An owl totem gives you the power to extract secrets.
    Meditate on the owl and things will be revealed.
    Listen to its voice inside of you.

    You will hear not what is being said by others, but what is hidden.
    You can detect subtleties of voice that others cannot.
    People cannot deceive a person who has an owl totem.

    Owl people can see into the darkness of others souls.
    Most owl people are clairvoyant because of this ability.
    It can be very scary at times.
    Learn to trust your instincts about people.
    Let your owl totem guide you.

    A Bear totem



    Hmmm. Bear fits.


    Deep in slumber, dreams unending,
    Wise old bear, patient, strong,
    Send me dreams of transformation.
    Grant me intuition along
    With introspection of my life,
    Inner listening, no more strife.
    Caution, Healing, Leadership
    The power of the Bear totem
    is the power of introspection.
    The answers to all our questions
    lie within us.
    Each of us has the capacity to quiet the mind,
    enter the silence and know.

    Just as the bear hibernates during the winter,
    people with a Bear totem will be quieter
    during the winter months. But they
    must awaken in the spring and seek
    whatever opportunities are around them.

    When you have a Bear totem,
    you are being guided to a leadership role.
    You must be fearless in defending your beliefs.

    The Bear also encourages you to exercise
    your abilities as a natural healer.

    Bears are associated with trees which are natural antennas, linking the heavens and the Earth.
    Bear also has links to the seven color rays of the Universal Light
    as well as Lunar ties, linking the subconscious and the unconscious mind.
    It is associated with the Goddess Artemis.

    I've been identified with the lion, but the description from this site doesn't quite fit:


    I feel this description fits more from this site:

    COYOTE

    [​IMG]

    Trickster, Shape-Changer, keep me from danger.
    Cunning magician, teach me your ways
    Of magical fire, powers much higher.
    Lead me to new life. Brighten my days.


    Wisdom, Folly

    The Coyote teaches you how wisdom and folly
    go hand-in-hand.
    In the folly of others, we see our own foolishness
    and we learn from their mistakes.

    If a Coyote totem has appeared in your life,
    be prepared for "Murphy's Law" to enter your life with a vengeance.
    Your sense of humor will arise full force in keeping with the things happening around you.
    Blind dates, things that suddenly don't work, all this is Coyote humor.
    You need to learn to laugh at yourself and Life's irony.

    Coyote energy is tied to simplicity and trust.
    It stimulates and renews innocence and reawakens a childlike wisdom in the world.
    A Coyote's howl touches your soul, reminding us of our primal connections.

    Coyote people are very adaptive to new situations
    and have close-knit families, especially when children are involved.

    I spent 18 years with a coyote.
    Raised it from a tiny orphaned cub.
    She died in my arms.
    I climbed aboard my boat and sailed away across the ocean.
    Just to forget.
    When I lost my boat, I lost every picture I had of her.
    And still I can't forget.

    I have always aligned with lynx, it has always been present around me:




    LYNX
    [​IMG]
    Keeper of the ancient secrets,
    Teacher of the hidden skills,
    Open my heart and mind to wisdom,
    Fill my days with strengthened will.
    Reveal the fearful truth of being,
    The part of us we fail to see.
    O lynx of smiling, hidden secrets,
    Bring aid and wisdom now to me.
    Secrets
    Lynx is the keeper of lost magic
    and occult knowledge.
    Lynx is the guardian of the secrets
    and, more importantly, the knower of the secrets.

    Lynx medicine is a very specific type of clairvoyance.
    If the medicine is strong in you, you will get mental pictures concerning people
    and the secrets they hide. You will see their fears, lies, and self-deceptions.
    You never speak of these revelations - but you know.

    With a Lynx totem, people will share their secrets with you.
    They will take you into their confidence and you will "accidentally"
    discover things about people (whether you want to or not).
    You must be very careful not to break confidences.
    Your words must be chosen carefully and used cautiously.
    Strength through silence must be your motto.

    You do not have to do anything with the secrets you learn,
    you, like the Lynx, are the keeper of secrets.
    Listen to your higher self.

    This whole business is a bit iffy.
    One does not pick a totem.

    This makes a sacred ritual into a travesty, desecrating its power.
    You might as well play Pick A Religion.

    Is nothing sacred to you people?

    I really considered lynx as well, actually. It was the only other one that drew me at all. The description relates to me in many ways, but not quite the "strength through silence" part, which is the only reason I didn't pick it...

    I have actually had my totem animals determined in a rituals when I was a child. Lynx was one of my highest ones.

    Besides, this doesn't have to be sacred. Not everyone on this forum takes things from a spiritual stance like I do. Doesn't mean they can't do it for fun or to gain insight.

    I was reading the article on the site about how a totem is chosen for the individual, and the actual process sounds very interesting. If it were actual totems, I'd prefer having it really chosen for me -- but it seems like we're doing more of a "which do you identify with personally" sort of thing, so yeah.
