A Day To Reflect On Birth Totems

turtle clan A Day To Reflect On Birth TotemsToday is my birthday, it is a day I take to reflect on my birth totems.  The gifts from Great Spirit given to me on the day that I took my first breath. Oh what precious gifts they have been! So, firstly I humbly thank you for these teachers that you so wisely chose for me.  You knew that I would need the Keeper of my spirit to be Wabun (Eagle) who would teach me to soar above the experiences ahead of me and give me the courage to survive them.  Beaver has given me a personality that feels strongly about family, a hard worker, a builder.  Making sure that I was born into the Turtle Clan gave me the strong connection to Mother Earth, I feel your pulse when I have my hands in the earth and feel your energy when I am around the Stone People (rocks).  Thank you, Great Spirit, for your wisdom in knowing just the right day for me to enter this lifetime.

Thank you to the Animal Spirits who chose me to teach as I came into my Earth Walk.  Elk teaches me my path to illumination in my East direction. Thank you Elk! Thank you Skunk for showing me when to be humble and when to trust in my South direction.  Coyote, you teach me about my personal truths and give me my inner answers and I thank you! Oh sweet Sister Deer, thank you for giving me wise council in my North direction.  Dolphin swims with me in my dream time.  Eagle, I most humbly thank you for being a double totem for my simple soul! You keep me grounded yet you encourage me to soar with great courage. Bat, you teach me about my sacred space and my personal truths, thank you. Blue Heron you walk on my right side and remind me that every traveler is a messenger and every destination is the beginning of a new life cycle. Raven, you chose to walk on my left side and teach me of the magic of life.  Thank you all for choosing to teach me your noble lessons!

Our day of birth is a glorious gift and we celebrate, for me it is a day of thanksgiving too. Thank you, Great Spirit, for this wondrous journey!
