What is the meaning of "bear totem"?
In the Native American tradition an animal totem is a spirit that will come to you to teach you lessons that you need. Some of these totems are with you from birth and will teach you throughout your lifetime. Other animal spirits or totems come as messengers and will stay with you until you have grasped the teaching they have for you. The bear totem or "bear medicine" teaches us introspection, aiding us to digest our experiences and to discover that we have within ourselves the answers to all our questions. We have only to slow down and listen to what our intuition, our inner knowing voice is telling us. Through introspection, we are guided to the truth and are able to uncover the answers to whatever challenge we are facing.
