Dictionary of Sea Totems
Sea life can be a great ally to a Sea Shaman, working with animal energies have been around and present for years. Many times we are visited in dreams, in real life, and in our thoughts and meditations by animal allies.
However, we can choose to consciously work with different animals to work on different blocks we have in our life or to bring about a desired change.
Here are some of my favorite animals and how you can use them in your spiritual practice.
