Eagle brings the gift of clarity of vision through you for you and for others. If you want to make a deeper connection with your Animal Totem, fill your environment with images of the

Elk are seldom seen alone, preferring to live in large herds. This does not mean they don’t need some personal space. If they are cornered they will make full use of there magnificent antlers. They are known to fight aggressively with other elk for mating rights, and it is not uncommon for them to draw blood (or worst) over this matter. Nevertheless, they can be unpredictably passive one moment and aggressive the next. Their incredible stamina enables them to run for long periods of time, while their strong reflexes allow them quick response to anything in their path. They
never graze at night, and if the herd is attacked they
will bolt in every direction to confuse the predator.
Elk’s regal demeanor reminds us if we are confident, we can claim our Empowerment. It teaches us to maintain and protect our selves by taking time out. Elk realizes it is important to remain closely connected with community, and being observant of subtle energies.

Foxes are highly adaptable creatures who will move into urban surroundings when,
their habitat is encroached on by humans. They maintain a territory, but it greatly decreases when they live in urban areas as opposed to hill country. Each territory is kept by one family group, which consists of a dog fox, vixen, and their cubs. If there is a good food supply than the family group can expand to include a few other adults. Nevertheless, only one vixen will produce cubs in the group. A vixen usually has four to five cubs at once who are born deaf and blind. The parents dig a den into the
Earth where the cubs stay until they are four weeks old. By then they are strong enough to go hunting with their mother. As for food, foxes are not too picky eating anything from earthworms, crabs, and fruit to small mammals. When foxes kill all the hens in a roost it's not because they go into a “blood lust”. They bury the excess prey to eat when the food supply is short.
Fox's cleaver nature makes it a master of camouflage. When hunted by hounds, Fox will psyche
them out by doubling back on its own trail, and run around in circles to break the scent. It has the amazing ability to meld into the background, allowing it to quietly observe the situation around them. Foxes then find out how to outwit its
predator or prey by moving in and out of predicament-causing confusion or creating order.
Fox comes to us when we need to slip out of a situation so we can be silent witness to what is really taking place behind the scenes. We need to use our cleverness to our advantage, but we must remember to be discreet. Fox asks us to carefully look at where we are coming from, so we can remember to approach things with a clear conscious.

Herons stand silently in shallow water patiently studying fish, frogs, and crayfish movements. In one quick movement herons plunge their heads into the water and catch their prey. These birds will resolutely defend their feeding territories from other herons. Great Blue herons are the largest of the species in North America standing nearly 4 ft tall, and will live for as long as 23 years. These birds are opportunist
eaters who’ll eat practically anything small enough to swallow. When nesting, herons create crude nests in trees out of sticks. If the nest doesn’t collapse in winter, they’ll
reuse the same nest only making necessary repairs.
In the past herons were killed for their feathers which were used to adorn people’s wardrobe and as cooking utensils. In 1900 the federal government passed the Lacey Act prohibiting the interstate and foreign commercial trade of feathers. By 1918 The Migratory Bird Treaty Act passed, enabling the federal government to set season and bag limits on hunting of waterfowl. Due to these two laws, the nearly extinct heron has returned in respectable numbers.
Heron's slow, deliberate manner produces a ceremonial aura, and displays the harmonious
natural flow of being ourselves. Heron teaches us how to become comfortable in
uncertain situations where we need to watch for an opportunity to arise and quickly grasp it. It calls us to take courage and follow our true path which will be discovered through exploring our inner selves, and finding what draws us to action.

Unlike other birds who gain flight power from the down-stroke, hummingbirds
find much power in the upstroke as well. This allows them to flap their wings
50 times a second making it a blur. This is helpful since their feet can only be used for perching. Because their breathing, heart rate, and body temperature are so high, they must feed every 10 minutes, consuming 2/3 their body weight daily.
Hummingbird’s feathers are prized in many traditions, for their magical qualities. Hummingbird comes when we need to spend
time soaking in the love of nature so we can learn how to integrate joy into our lives.

Lizards keen sense of vibrations from the ground, excellent hearing and sharp
eyesight enables them to detect the slightest movement. One fascinating ability lizards have, is being able to break off their tails to escape predators. As their tail is writhing it distracts the predator so the lizard can make its escape. Unfortunately, a lizard can only do this once because the tail grows back cartilage instead of vertebrae.
In myths and lore, Lizard is associated with dreaming. Dreams awaken our unconscious mind and make us aware of issues
we haven't been ready to face in our conscious lives. Lizard appears when we need to analyze our present reality, and brings the message for immediate change in some area or areas of our life. This change can represent letting go of old ideas, or negative behaviors which endanger our growth.

Owls, which have been called cats with wings, are the silent hunters of the night.
Their downy feathers and the front edge of their wings have a fringe which silences their flight. The wings are substantially bigger than their actual body making their slow smooth flight all the easier. These birds also have a third eyelid which moves from side to side to clean their vision. An owl’s eyes are fixed in the socket. To see in various areas, their incredibly flexible necks can rotate 270 degrees in any direction.

masters of mimicking the calls of other animals, and have also been known to mimic some human words. They are good at finding food and communicating with other ravens where food is located. It is their natural talent of recycling, which has gained these birds a bad rap. They do a good job cleaning up nature
by eating dead animals. Ravens further recycle by using the same nests year after year, and bringing in new materials for repairs if necessary. These birds build their nest in large trees or the sides of cliffs where they usually lay 4-5 eggs. They don’t wander far from where they were raised and will only get a new mate if one of the pair dies.
Ravens are known as the “keeper of secrets” in several native tribes, and are the teachers of mysticism. They have been wrapped in a wealth of myth and lore throughout many cultures and ages.

Whales are the world's largest mammals, and the Blue Whale is the largest creature on Earth!
These warm-blooded creatures have blubber to insulate and store food they need.
The two main groups of whales are baleen (toothless) and toothed whales. Baleen whales (Gray, Right, and Rorquals whales) have two blowholes as opposed to
toothed whales (Killer “Ocra”, Pilot, and Sperm whales) who only have one. Whale bones are soft and porous enabling them to store food in the form of oil, unlike land mammals whose bones are hard. The softness of their bones
enables them to grow to an enormous size and still float in the water. Underwater, whales don’t have good eye sight, but they have excellent hearing and use a technique called "echo location" to communicate with other whales. By using their powerful tail flukes to steer and propel them, they are able to utilize their fins to twist and turn about in the water.
Having been born with a protective coat of blubber, whales know how important insulation can be. They understand the sacred power of water and realize the importance of taking time out to breathe. Their sensitivity to sound and movement connects them to the core energy of primal life. Whale reintroduces us to our creative and intuitive energies to show us a talent we’ve forgotten about or haven’t been aware existed. People with this totem are able to understand the ancient language of “energy vibrations”, and are able to distinguish where others are truly coming from. Whale asks us to recall our past and listen to its stories so we can creatively heal old wounds.
