Why the Swan is My Totem
The swan is my totem. “Totem” is the North American Native designation for an animal to which we feel a deep connection. As time has gone by, I see how the ancient and sacred totem of the swan has marked the path of my own journey as well as the journey of the clients whom I coach.
Here is what Ted Andrews says about the swan in his book, Animal Speak: The Spiritual and Magical Powers of Creatures Great and Small:
The swan is a totem (symbol) of someone who has chosen to awaken to their true beauty and power.
The totem of the mystic, the swan is a bridge between our humanness and our spirit, the essence of who we are. This ethereal creature teaches us to go within. To bow to our heart. To discover our deepest nature. To live with an inner knowing that we are so much more that what our mind tells us.
Grace. Flow. Calm. Balance. Unity. Love. Power. Truth.
I am beautiful. I am. I am.
As a totem, the Swan expands your capacity to accept life, and your own and others’ limitations and strengths. This is true power. In the Stillness, we connect to our essential nature where we can navigate life’s challenges with the Swan medicine of balance and grace. From the inside out.
