QUESTION: "Are domestic animals totems too?"
Response by Arvel Bird in his newsletter on April 13th, 2010
Absolutely, I mean, there's a reason we love our four-leggeds, feathered or slithering friends! You'll see what I mean .....
Cats in the home often take on the role of healer and will sit near anyone in the household who needs healing, speeding the recovery period. A cat's purring can help reduce his owner's stress or anxieties. Who doesn't feel better, just petting a cat and even better if the cat is purring, right? This purring is believed by many to ease some types of pain and help boost our own immune system. Cats can be excellent diagnosticians!
Dog is a symbol of the small becoming the great. People with this totem have great spirit and a great ability to love.Dog people are also commonly involved in their community and tend to help their neighbor even before they are asked.
Dog medicine embodies the contrast of loving gentleness of best friend and the fierce energy of protector.
Need a morale booster? You only have to look as far as the Dog totem!
