Cougar Birth Animal Totem: Feb 19 – March 20
Cougars teach about:
~ Patience & determination
~ Staying on a chosen path and not getting distracted
~ Learning how to use your power and how to stay in balance during times of movement and change
~ Using energy efficiently
~ Cougars are supreme survivalists and can teach you how to stabilize and do any physical act without harm to yourself
~ Cougar people have the possibility of developing many powers outside the ordinary. Their natural ways make them very adept to the mysteries of life and of the universe.
~ Cougar people have the power to be healers and engage in ceremony and ritual
~ Cougars are sensitive and tend to retreat inside especially if they feel they have been hurt by another
~ Cougars need their space and mark their territory no matter what kind of relationship and don’t want others to intrude on it
~ Due to their intuitive natures, cougars know how to make people comfortable by sensing what they need
~ Their inward nature causes them to go inside and disappear and this “going within” energy can cause them to be melancholic and withdrawn and sometimes causes depression
~ They love to hunt especially in the spiritual realm and love to learn in those realms
~ They can be fierce towards one who has hurt them, whether the hurt was real or imagined
~ They are creative, artistic and have patience for whatever they are seeking.
~ Help you walk in balance
~ Shows you your heart capacity for love, the nature of your heart
~ How to express emotions and feel them
~ Helps you to be in the present moment emotionally, so you are present and not in past history
When we walk in balance we are connected to reality, the present moment. When out of balance we are in our personal history, living in the past or fantasizing about the future

Animal totems are numerous and varied, beliefs about how many we have and what they do, are just as varied. I present what I have been taught and experienced. Trance drum journeys are a way to find your animal totems, be it just one or many. I facilitate drum journeys. Should you be interested in doing one, contact me & we’ll set up an appointment for this magickal experience.
So what are Totem Animals and why would you even want one? Animal Totems are animal spirit allies, on your journey in this lifetime. They give you advice when asked for, and answer questions you have. They can support you when you’re scared, help empower you, clarify things, show you the next step in your healing journey, walk with you as a trusted companion and more. There are 9 Animal Totems, one in the centre and 8 around your Animal Totem Medicine Wheel. Are they real animal spirits? Well I don’t think it matters one iota if they are or aren’t, what you imagine you create. Whatever you believe and experience is your truth. It is the wisdom & knowledge you get from them that matters, not whether you believe that it’s an animal spirit or a part of your own psyche.
Mayan Daykeeper Ok ~ The essence of Ok is the pure energy of carnal yearnings. It is also an awareness of our connection to our primordial instincts & intuitive senses.
Ok may be experienced as a heightened sensitivity to your inner feelings and desires,
as well as enhanced awareness of your environment.
Ok may express as a strong desire, a sense of loyalty
or the need to allow desire to guide your actions.
Ok’s days are good for allowing yourself to be guided by your desires and intuition,
trusting yourself and enjoying every moment.
Those born on a Ok day may be loyal, flamboyant, intuitive
and available for the true desires of the moment.

Your interpretation and experience is your own. I can only share my personal understanding, I invite you to find your own truths and their relevance in your life. This is really important. If something resonates great, if not chuck it out. We gain nothing by ‘taking on’ others life experiences and beliefs. The juice and healing comes from within your own understanding, it is pivotal for your healing journey and manifesting what you want.
