Listen to your inner being…badger is talking to you.

  1. Hello Bev,
    I have recently been awakened to the world of my spirit guides and my higher self, The Badger has come to me in deep meditation and I am trying to get a deeper understanding on the badgers meaning and perhaps the tribe it is most acknowleged in, if you have any information on anything u think may be of any help, I would much appreciate it, thanks 🙂

    1. The totems are not specifically identified by any one Tribe. Your totem has nothing to do with belonging to a specific tribal tradition, it is about the lessons you are to learn in life. If Badger is coming to you in meditation, he is most probably telling you that you need to be aggressive about healing or fixing something. Read my post again, the answer is probably there. Then again, an animal spirit guide will work with you until you finally get “all” of the lesson.

  2. Interesting, this morning my boyfriend was asking me when I was going to get mad and step up to making changes.

  3. I have a badger in my back yard. I ve been through many difficulties lately through work and relationships. My husband wanted to shoot it because of fear. I yelled at the badger to run and it listened and ran like crazy and my husband could not get a good shot. I thank this spirit for listening for I couldn’t bear to see it die…very beautiful animal. Thank you for your insight.

  4. Badger came to me in a dream last night. Others thought it was Opossum at first, as it seemed shy. Then she showed her teeth and others withdrew in caution. She came to me and coiled warm and sleek around my neck and shoulders, and became my companion protector, and I hers. We travel through the dream together.
