The Origin of Totem Animals
Totem animals have their origins as far back as the life of the physical dimension on Gaia Earth.
The human being has its origins in nature, we are a continuity of nature.
The Lakota use the term Mitakuyé Oyasin which means we are all one, related, bound.
There was even a time when human beings not separated from nature lived in harmony with nature.
Thus the Amerindians had anchored deep,1875,1810 in their way of life, respect and harmony with plants, trees, animals etc.
The Animal Totem: Guardian and Spiritual Guide
You have already noticed the perfection and harmony of nature, everything is in balance, it is the manifestation of the Great Spirit (God in other words) of his Spirit (energy) in the physical dimension.
This is why it is said that nature is sacred,in many shamanic, Aboriginal and indigenous spirituality.
Thus the totem animals close to the Great Spirit and our true nature, help us in our experience of earthly life to guide us on the path that brings us back to the source.
What are the totem animals?
There are in truth many, as many as there are animals on Gaia Earth,
Then you can meet animals that do not exist or more in the physical dimension, such as mystical animals: dragon, phoenix etc.
So all this is not limited to some animals as you can see on some sites, but to a really wide panel ofAnimal Totem.
How many totem animals do we have?
I do not have a clear answer to that question, based on my experience and the experience of others: we have several.
Arnaud Rioux, for example, says that we only have one and the others are animal medicines that accompany us.
So the answer is not obvious, I have met several and I feel them as part of "my" being, but in a sense all this does not really matter because in truth we are one, so needless to put separations :)
