I have been blessed with Tala, my Wolf power totem. This is a totem Spirit that I have
reincarnated with for many lifetimes. She first came to me in this lifetime when I was a scared little girl. I somehow knew instinctively that I could trust her and that she was not there to harm me. Maybe at that tender age, I recognized her energy and knew she was there to help protect me. I have relied on her energy in times of need. Maybe this is also the reason that I have loved wolves for as long as I can remember. I feel that not only have I been blessed with a Wolf totem but also that the Spirit of the Wolf is alive within my own soul.
