Tiger Animal Totem
By Susan Jolley
This animal totem is Tiger – Power (personal and will), Silence/Camouflage, Unpredictability
Tiger represents power which encompasses your personal strength and your will power. His lesson is teaching you to overcome obstacles and reach your goals by showing courage and determination.
In order to do this it means overcoming your fears and learning how to deal with the strong emotions of feeling threatened, anger, aggression, or deep frustration so that they are more manageable and within your conscious control. The strong emotions that are triggered may be from some external circumstance or from your inner sub conscious thoughts. Learn to use your power proactively and not reactively.
Tiger is a silent hunter and is able to blend in with it habitat. He is teaching you to move through your environment being a keen observer to everything around you. This will require patience, ability to focus, hone in all of your senses, clearing the mind of all distractions - living in the present moment and to act without analysis and with surprising bursts. With careful planning and proper maneuvering you will be able to get what you desire.
Tiger represents the unpredictability of life. He is teaching you that when unexpected events disturb your plans, when things move so fast that you find it hard to determine the best plan of action, or when feelings of anger, fear, jealousy, frustration, etc, spring up you run the risk of making rash decisions. Tiger is here to remind you to regain your power so that you can proactively make the right decisions.
Crystals to remind you of Tiger’s messages are:
