The use of a totem animal is not part of traditional Wiccan practice. However, as Wicca and other modern Pagan practices evolve and blend together, many people who follow non-mainstream spiritual paths find themselves working with a mix of many different belief systems. Because of this, someone following a Native American or Indo-European shamanic path might find themselves working with totem animals.
Totem animals, spirit animals and animal guides are just a few of the things our animal kindred are called in spiritual communities. You have probably heard these terms, and met many people who claim the power of certain animals aides them in everyday life and sacred matters.
