Totem or Spirit Stones are totem animals and / or other symbols which are carved into, or from gemstones with metaphysical properties. This unites the inherent power of the symbol with the healing property of the crystal or stone.
It is believed that the symbol of the totem animal or symbol brings guidance and protection and in many cases can teach us based on the particular animal or symbol you choose or feel drawn to.
The Bear Spirit or Totem Animal inspires strength, courage, and respect. It encourages leadership skills and reminds one to take rest and recuperation when needed. It also reminds us to appreciate life and to take the time to "smell the roses".
