Birth Totem Bear is an individual whose outer personality is one of quiet observation.
As Birth Totem Bear moves through his/her daily life, there is a noticeable careful study of all he/she encounters and experiences. It is as though the intention is to sift and sort through all of the stimuli and input that the conscious mind encounters . . . to categorize and label each person, action and event so that a greater understanding and assimilation can occur.
In the wild, Bear is an omnivore, yet their diet will consist primarily of vegetarian fare and larvae or grubs. To attain the morsels of squirming grub, the Bear must forage around beneath fallen logs and stones, sifting and sorting through the forest debris in order to be rewarded with the treats they so enjoy and that will provide the sustenance that will benefit their physical well-being.
Yet Birth Totem Bear will eventually realize that not everything can be understood with the physical senses alone, and the Individual Soul of another can never be neatly or completely labeled or categorized as it is dynamic and ever changing with that individual’s evolvement. Until Black Bear can come to the awareness that life is ever-changing, and that to attempt to understand the process with the physical senses alone will inevitably (and invariably) lead to frustration, he/she will be stunting their own spiritual growth.
Just as Bear must rely upon her/his “higher senses” (intuition) in order to prepare for the lean months of winter and to alert him/her of impending threat, so must Birth Totem Bear learn to rely a little less upon “physical evidence” and more upon his/her inner voice and feelings. In this way, integration of Mind and Physical to that of the Emotions and Soul can take place leading to the Higher Intent of Black Bear’s incarnation . . . the Perfection of the Soul.
Deep in slumber, dreams unending,
Wise old bear, patient, strong,
Send me dreams of transformation.
Grant me intuition along
With introspection of my life,
Inner listening, no more strife.
Caution, Healing, Leadership
The power of the Bear totem
is the power of introspection.
The answers to all our questions
lie within us.
Each of us has the capacity to quiet the mind,
enter the silence and know.
Just as the bear hibernates during the winter,
people with a Bear totem will be quieter
during the winter months. But they
must awaken in the spring and seek
whatever opportunities are around them.
When you have a Bear totem,
you are being guided to a leadership role.
You must be fearless in defending your beliefs.
The Bear also encourages you to exercise
your abilities as a natural healer.
Bears are associated with trees which are natural antennas, linking the heavens and the Earth.
Bear also has links to the seven color rays of the Universal Light
as well as Lunar ties, linking the subconscious and the unconscious mind.
It is associated with the Goddess Artemis.
