Spirit Guides and Totem Animals Can Help Us In Times of Need

by Curt Remington

We all have times in our life when we could use love, support, guidance or protection. A wolf recently brought me the message that I’m not alone and that my spirit guides and totem animal are nearby, bringing me these gifts.

Gray Wolf- That’s my car mirror on the left side.

Personally, I’m in a place where I could use all of these. Two months ago, I had surgery for prostate cancer. Although it looks like I’m free of cancer, the experience stirred up a whole lot of anxiety and issues, some of which have nothing to do with cancer. I’ll write about them sometime, but for now I’d just like to tell you about Wolf, my totem animal.

So how did a wolf get me that important message? My wife and I were driving near the edge of town, in Bellingham, Washington. A gray wolf trotted out of the woods, so we stopped the car in the middle of the road. The wolf circled our car, occasionally looking up at us. Then, it trotted to the edge of a parking lot, turned and looked at us again. Eventually, it crossed the parking lot and continued towards the wooded hillside at the edge of town. I immediately sensed this was a message from my wolf totem animal, reminding my that he’s nearby. Later, when both my wife and I did some clairvoyant reading, we got the more in-depth message regarding love, support and protection.

The night before, I’d done an hour-long interview on the Spiritual Broadcasting Network, briefly talking about my wolf totem animal. I knew that this had to be far more than coincidence. I also need to mention that wolf sightings are quite rare in Washington, especially wolves that circle your car.

When I have seen and communicated with Wolf, my totem animal, it has been clairvoyantly, especially during vision quests. In other words, I’ve seen his image with my eyes closed, using my third eye’s psychic vision. In speaking with a variety of people, I’ve heard many say their experience with totem animals has been through seeing an actual animal, or even coming across a picture of one at an especially significant time.

For hundreds of years, Native Americans have ventured into the wilderness, seeking their totem animal for direction in life. Their totem animal usually took the form of a vision, like my psychic images during vision quests.



In communicating with Wolf, I’ve learned that totem animals are advanced spirits, much like guardian angels and other spirit guides. They take the form of an animal, or call on one, to get a specific message across. For me, the image of a wolf conveys a sense of strength and protection.

You may already be aware of your totem animal too. Are you strongly drawn to a species of animal, collecting pictures or small statues, like the wolves and owls (my wife’s) hanging around our house.  Have you had an encounter with a wild animal and sensed they had a message for you?

Watch for these experiences. You’ll usually get a sense that the animal’s behavior is unusual and significant. You might also consider meditating and contacting your totem animal or spirit guides. This is especially effective on a vision quest trip. Having such an experience can enrich your life and bring you a deeper sense of spiritual connection.

    Thank you Janet for posting the comment and for sending the email. As to cancer, it appears to have all been contained within my prostate. My PSA was at 0 on my last test, so I’m quite confident that I’m in good health.

    As to snakes, I looked them up on animaltotem.com. It says that snakes come into our lives when are “moving toward change and need to let go of part of our old self. Snake awaken our spiritual intuition, allowing us to explore the mysterious depths of our mind and soul.” I guess the snakes in your dream may have a message for you.

    That’s very interesting. Just last night I dreamed about snakes and related creatures. We were picking up a bunch of them and putting them in a large plastic storage bin to remove to the outdoors, getting them out of the house where they were hiding. What a positive message. Thanks Curt!

    That is a wonderful story! Thank you! I have had encounters with a Wolf a couple different times while on my way, or leaving the North shore Once in the middle of the road near Silver bay, In a place where I always think it is kinda scary to drive through at night. The wolf was stopped under a Bridge and starring at my headlights and then I slowed down and stopped and it stayed very still for moments, my daughter Grace and I could not believe it! then started up the hill and stopped to turn and look back at us and paused, and ran into the night. Another time my Daughter and I were just leaving the Lutsen area and at Dusk, a wolf was on the road and it was so big, I thought it was first a deer! Then realized it was a wolf. Its back legs remined me of a German shepards how some have that stance.. I could not believe the size.. it caught our glimps as we slowed down to stop the car and slowely went into the woods… so cool!!! Could I have more than one animal spirit guide? My love for horse is never ending, but I also have noticed all of my wolf pictures or paintings I have… Anyway, I really enjoy your Book! I read it often and not always in order.. I am glad you are well and say hi to Mary! Best Regards! Deb

    Thank you! I have been told in readings that my animal totem is a gray wolf accompanied by a Native American with a full head dress. I have been researching what it means to communicate better and what types of meditation to try in order to do so.
