Please tell us a little bit about yourself
I'm a young person wanting to learn about my totems!
I don't want to say my real name but you can call me Scar!

I've been interested in totem animals since 2011, though I 'took a break' from them most of 2012.
What brings you to this website?
I want to learn about my totem and how she could help me!
I'm also looking for a place to converse with fellow totem lovers!
Do you have a special animal totem that has come to you?
I think it maybe the polar bear because she's not my favorite animal(I love cats!) but I feel a strong connection with her.

I was at my school library when I asked my totem to show them self to me(In the form of a book title/cover) I then went wandering through the library. I saw a horse on the spine of a book, a dog on the cover of the other, but they didn't feel right. I then asked the librarian help me find a book on endangered animals(School project) and while we were looking I saw a book that was not previously there!I then felt drawn to another book with a blank spine. On the cover of both books was....Polar bear!

I've also had a few journey totems, such as tiger, spider, ant, snake and fox. I might also have the cat, though I'm not too certain.
What are some of your favorite Animal Totems books and resources?

What are some of your favorite Shamanic Journeying CD's, Musicians, and Music?

How did you find us?
I was looking for a place to hang out and chat about my totem and others totems and new ways to connect with her!

How I met Tipvigut for the second time(In detail!)

I used this video.

I walked along the brown dirt path it was a path well walked by others. Dry grass, only just shorter then me lined the edges. I could see the glowing eyes of animals, no faces were shown..Only the warm glowing eyes. I wasn't sure how to bless the land so I just threw my arms out in front of me and said a few words. I kept trekking along this magnificent path until I got to the clearing. The clearing was surrounded by tropical type bushes, beautiful multicolored flowers blooming everywhere. The 6 'portals' had circular rings around them, kind of like a photo frame. All contained the different environments, they looked like subtly moving pictures in their 'frames'!

I was drawn to 'portal' number 6(Ant/Arctic) the 'portal' was surrounded by a rusty silver frame that looked of Celtic origin. I went down the path that led to the portal, the vegetation on this path began to get covered in ice, then it thinned out until it was gone...I was through! It was a clear day inside my portal, not a cloud in the sky. By this time my visualization was becoming grainy and so when I heard big paw steps crunching softly through the snow I was glad my guide had come when I could still see; a little.

A polar bear emerged from a thin shroud of mist that had formed, she was huge! She was as tall as me(Though I'm short so she was probably normal sized!) when sitting and a little shorter when standing on all fours. I had already guessed polar bear was my totem, I just wanted to be sure by doing these meditations to meet with her. Because my vision was extremely fuzzy and I wanted to confirm she was who I thought I said, "Your name is Tipvigut isn't it?" She bowed her head slightly. "Are you my totem?" I asked, another slight nod. I hugged her around her neck, her course fur was slightly softer then I imagined it would be and my vision cleared up just enough that I could see her, 'smiling' down at me(The best a polar bear can).

Then the meditation was winding up, so I had to leave, I thanked her for her time and cooperation.I made my way back through the portal and up the path that gradually grew warmer. I stopped at the mouth of the clearing and looked back, making a mental note to come back and talk with Tipvigut soon.

I had met Tipvigut before and she had no name, so I went searching on the internet for one. I found a beautiful name that meant 'water' but Tipvigut was leading me to her name, which means 'Snow drift' in Inuit.

This is the best meditation I have ever done and I would definitely recommend it. I would hear and feel my surroundings other then just seeing them! I still have to learn to smell my surroundings and not let my vision go fuzzy, but I'm getting there!
