Salmon Totem Wishes Michey Happy Birthday

My friend Michey is having a birthday today, so I wanted to share her Birth Totem of Salmon with her and my readers. But first…HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Michey!

Salmon as a Native American Totem gives us medicine concerning wisdom and inner-knowing. Sometimes fighting strong currents from the river, this fish will always return to the place of its origin.  Salmon has a determination driven by instinct and inner knowing that will not allow external forces to thwart its journey. People who have Salmon as a messenger totem or birth totem will be people who finish what they begin, bringing the events of life and their cycles to a closure.

The medicine of Salmon honors all encounters in life with reverence, knowing that they are gatherings of wisdom. Salmon teaches us that even when the flow of life seems to push us back, we know that we can connect with the resources of our human spirit and our personal inner knowing.  Swimming up stream against the current is not always easy in life but honoring our wisdom and instincts to do what is right will carry us through.

When Salmon is in your life you should always reflect on personal experience to determine if the tides are ebbing or flowing in a direction that will benefit your forward movement or growth. It is important to go back to the beginning and retrace your path that brought you where you are and then to honor your wisdom before you make your decision on any event at hand.

The silver skin of Salmon reflects lessons much like a mirror. The lessons will show us opportunities in all situations, the wisdom comes from being willing to listen to the voices of others along with our own quiet inner voice to choose the path to swim on.  People with Salmon medicine do sometimes struggle with the reflections and have to remember to embrace the lessons they have learned along their path and value their inner voice along with the experiences they have gained in life.

Salmon reminds us that every bend in the river is an adventure, some will be easy to navigate and others will be difficult.  This totem teaches us about determination, perseverance, generosity, and strength and to look at situations not as hardships but wisdom gained along the way. When combining the experiences of life, the voices of  those swimming with us, and our inner voice; Salmon will help us to swim a path up the river that brings honor to our beginnings.

To find out more about my friend Michey and her writing you can visit her blog Michaela’s Blog where she shares some of the wisdom that her Salmon totem has helped her gather while she has swam through the river of life.

  1. Bev, this is wonderful and amazingly, so like Michey! She is a very wise woman with determination enough to not only rescue herself but the lives of her loved ones as well. Could any of us have such courage? Michey, I am wishing you a Birthday filled with beautiful memories of birthdays past and enchanting dreams for the years still ahead. Happy Birthday!!!

  2. Bev, thanks, it is interesting to read about my birth totem, and combining with your talent as a writer you produce a great post for my birthday. Your post is a great gift!
    I cannot thank you enough, but in one month of hard work (and I am thinking to isolate myself to the world for 2-3 weeks, to dedicate myself only to my work) , I hope I will be able to prove your writing about my totem, which you describe so generously

  3. Corrine and Dan Thanks a lot, yes Bev’s post set up the tone for entire day which has been full of great surprises. I am a little tired now, but I really enjoy my birthday.

  4. Bev, with her wonderful perspective of Native American wisdom, has pegged you well Michey! What a beautiful tribute from her heart! Not only is your totem strong, but, astrologically, you are a Lioness … and the stars stack up favorably for you… as it should be: “If your birthday falls on or within five days of August 9, you will benefit from having a new moon so close to your birthday. The year will be filled with fresh starts and new chapters. It is very rare to have a new moon on your birthday, as it may not happen again for decades. The coming year should be a turning point, so anticipate it with glee!” So again, Happy Birthday and we are all blessed to call you…” friend”!

  5. Thanks John, yes I have to tell you that all day long on Sunday , and 1/2 of Monday I really felt the warm of my friends, and the new moon in my sign which it is true, it is a rare astrological event.
    Mentally I feel the energy of the new moon.
    Thanks so much!

  6. One more time, for all my friends, thank you, you make my birthday so special, a big hug for Bev as well.
    Now I have to come back to an exhausted schedule, but the day of my birthday will stay with me, giving strength when I need it, putting a smile on my face…
    Regards and all the best for all of you
