What is totem jewelry?
According to Webster’s, a totem is:
: something (such as an animal or plant) that is the symbol for a family, tribe, etc., especially among Native Americans
: a usually carved or painted figure that represents such a symbol
: a person or thing that represents an idea
In shamanism, a totem animal is a power animal. How do you find your power animal? You journey to find it, or you have a shaman journey to find it for you.
The shaman belief is that if a person doesn’t have a power animal, he/she won’t live very long in infancy. We all have power animals; we just don’t know them. They are waiting for us to come and meet them. If you dream about an animal frequently, or see an animal often, it could be your power animal trying to get your attention. It could also be a sign of something that you need to pay attention to.
So…getting back to the original, totem jewelry is jewelry that honors your power animal. That reminds you of the love and protection you continually receive from your spiritual ally.
