Bear Totem is 26th in the Totem Project which will culminate in the creation of a beautiful oracle deck themed around this collection of spirit animals. The creation of Bear Totem coincided with the launch of my new Skillshare channel - a great online learning platform. If you want to learn how I create my totems, then head on over there and join my class!
The Bear may be a fierce creature, with his formidable size and bulk but he is also a creature who slumbers through the winter and snacks on fresh grown spring flowers when he emerges from his winter den. The Bear Totem encourages introspection and deep inward thinking. He symbolises strength and confidence as well as the need for solitude, quiet and rest.
