Have you ever wondered what your totem animal is?

A totem animal is an important symbolic object used by a person to get in touch with the specific qualities found within that animal. These traits might be qualities which you need, connect with, or feel a deep affinity toward.

Your spirit animal guide will instruct and protect you as you learn how to navigate through your spiritual and physical life.

Anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss suggested that animal totems are chosen arbitrarily for the sole purpose of making the physical world a comprehensive and coherent classificatory system. 

Here are some useful questions you can use to locate your spirit animal.

When you go to the park, forest, or zoo what animal are you most interested in seeing?
When you are using tumblr or flickr what animal images do you download and cross post?
When you listen to music and there is an animal reference in the lyrics, which animal references make you sigh the most?
When spying hipsters around the city, which of their animal tattoos are you most drawn to?
Which animal do you find most frightening or intriguing?
Have you ever been bitten or attacked by an animal? If so what animal was it?
Is there a recurring animal in your dreams or do you have one you have never forgotten?

In the summer of 2000 I undertook a vision quest,  during which time it was revealed to me that my totem animal was infact a squirrel. Squirrels are one of the smartest animals on the planet, they store things away for the future and they are extra cute.

My flat is covered in squirrel figurines.

I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
