 It's an inactive thread but an interesting one. Felt drawn to it.

 As i remember, it was many years ago during a long hot summer. Everyday life was stressful and chaotic. Energy levels were running high. It's at times like that where you say to yourself i really need to take a break for awhile and get centered again. It was during meditation that i slipped into the dream state and wolf manifested itself. It jumped up in my face and tried to frighten the daylights out of me. I calmly told it " You don't frighten me". It lunged again and once more i told it that it didn't frighten me.

 The scene changed and raven presented itself in profile and imparted something that i needed to know but could not see for myself. An icy winter wasteland presented itself and i came to understand that it was the heart of someone near to me at the time. It was quite an eye opener !

 I took some different things from the experience and others like it.

First : It's possible that energy levels are important. The higher your psychic energy level is going in .... the deeper you will go into that other realm.

Second: It's uncertain as to whether or not you're interacting with another aspect of your own mind ( your subconscious) -or- something external in the spirit realm.

Third: It's easy to get bogged down in semantics. Spirit guides and totem animals have different meanings to different people. Sometimes a word or name can have more than one meaning and that can be confusing. What seems to work best for me is simply the generic term " entity ".

 An entity is a pretty vague thing without any discernible form. It's possible that the same entity could manifest itself in any number of different forms. It could be an animal, a grey with big obsidian eyes, the BVM or one particular manifestation of the God/dess ?

 After all .... we all have our own unique way of looking at the world around us. It would make sense that the form we attribute to the thing without form would tell us more about ourselves than anything else ?

Someone who has the squirrel as a totem tend to be social and energetic , they show that they will go out off their way to solve a problem or a puzzle . While those are good they can also have a bad side . One can become so involved with what they are doing that they can not see what is happening around them to their detriment. The can find their work and social life becoming harder to hold together because they have a sometimes fatal desire to complete their goal even when it brings them little or no reward . This can come into conflict with their social life  . They make good friends and are willing to help with whatever they can .


Hope that helped you somewhat cheese.

Mine is a wolf OG. I have been away for awhile, but have rededicated myself to following the path. Appreciate any insight you have.

Wolf is one of the most called upon spirit animals but a lot of the people who claim it never get it's help because they do not understand it's power . Strength , courage yes but it is the strength of unity and the courage of love for others that is the true power of the Wolf.


In many Native American peoples Wolf is the Spirit animal that is the teacher , the one that showed them how to live in harmony with themselves and the earth .


Wolf acts as a protector of family and friends , one who is willing to lend a hand and teach . Even those that are lone wolves will come to the aid of others . The power a Wolf spirit gives is one of caring , this give the person the strength to over come the odds to be forceful and gentile at the same time but can become fierce if face with those who are not willing to understand.


Wolf spirit also imparts cunning to one , teaching them to blend in , to hide in plain site and figure out and solve a problem with others be unaware who helped . Wolf never seeks glory only harmony .

Thank you. The wolf has been with me for over 20 years. I am a good listener I guess. What you have described is what my friends say about me. Makes perfect sense.

Good listeners make good friends , the more one understands of what is happening the better they are at solving problems ; Wolf has always been a problem solver . Another of the qualities of Wolf is as and arbitrator .
