The totem is born of the earth and the earth is it’s mother. The spirits (energy) that created your totem comes from all the living and non-living things of the land. The spirit of the rocks that lay on the ground, the spirits of the trees and all animals. Like the birth of a star in the universe all the spirits of the land came together to give birth and create your soul. That soul wondered the land in search of the perfect parents whom in turn would give birth to it’s perfect match to carry it.
