lyonesse: (coyote)
[personal profile] lyonesse posting in [community profile] totemists
i just wanted to ask, how do people feel about framing their physical encounters with actual animals in totemic terms, as opposed to intentional spiritual meetings? waste of time, or openness to reality? :)

encountering animals unusual to me often has a great emotional impact (recently a melanistic squirrel at my barn, and a great blue heron in the forest). i haven't tried to think about this in totemic/spiritual guide terms though, but am wondering if/how i might...

i routinely "dwell with" coyote (as you might guess from my icon :) and coyote encounters in our forest are both relatively common and always resonant for me, though it's usually signs (scat, footprints, vocalizations) rather than a direct sighting. but that may just be habit on my part.
