I have long associated with Frogs in my life.   My first love was Kermit the Frog.  Today I have been at Weber Wonderland, alone and quietly enjoying the house.   I have needed the down time to think.   I went down to the pool and then saw this little critter.   It was better to see rather than the dead mice and birds the cats seem to think I want…    

I was thinking that a frog was my Spirit Animal because my Joy guide has them and I hear and see them coming up all the time.   So of course I needed to look up what they mean:

Frog Animal Totem: Transformation

The frog is the totem of metamorphosis. It symbolizes coming into your personal power. It reminds us not to become bogged down with day-to-day living. Frog is the totem of water. Its voice calls forth the rains. It is time to get in tough with your emotions.  Emotions are associated with water and a frog totem may be telling you to get in touch with your feelings. People with frog medicine give support and energy where it is needed. They can cleanse the negativity from an environment. 

Toad Animal Totem:

The appearance of a Toad heralds a successful time of drawing upon and using our inner resources. Toads reminded you that your luck is changing.   Toads are associated with money and luck – especially if you wish to change your luck from bad to good. People with a Toad totem can see things and people more clearly. A Toad heralds the need for self-examination. Ask these questions:

  • Am I hesitating to act and missing opportunities?
  • Am I allowing fear to hinder progress?
  • Have I forgotten my inner strength?

A Toad totem is a representation of the Moon, and represents both Life and Death. In alchemy, the Toad signifies the dark side of Nature. In the ancient cultures of Mexico, the Toad symbolized the Earth.  

It make me feel that is what is going on in my life right at this moment…
