The animal totems of the inner wheel represent the medicine powers of the Great Spirit, The Creator, or God.
Just as you and I have our medicine power totems, so likewise, Great Spirit has His/Her medicine power totems. The question may be asked, “How does the Great Spirit, or God, give His/Her powers to all forms of life on Mother Earth, to you and to me?” This can be understood by studying the seven powers of the inner circle. You may find it quite interesting to compare the Native American teachings of the seven totems with the Christian teachings of the gifts and ministries of the spirit, with the seven charkas of Hinduism, and with the Tree of Life in ancient Judaism’s Kabalism. No doubt, there are teachings from other cultures and traditions that also correspond to these. They are out there for you to discover and enjoy.
Four of the seven totems, in the inner wheel, are also in the outer wheel of our personal totems. This reminds us of the ancient teaching that we were created in the image of God. We are “chips off of the old block.” They suggest powers of our own divinity. We are children of Great Spirit, or God.
