Represents: Action, industry, teamwork

The Beaver totem reminds us that we have to act on our dreams to make them reality. When a Beaver totem enters your life it is time for action. Ask yourself, “Have I been neglecting my dreams? Am I lost in my dreams and not acting upon them?”

The Beaver reminds us that we have to act on our dreams in order to make them a reality. Beaver can show you how to use your energy to make your dreams a reality.

Beavers work together to build dams on rivers, changing the flow of the waters. People with a Beaver totem can make beautiful dreams a reality. When those dreams are built, they can alter the flow of time and history to make substantial changes in your world.

Beavers recognize that such a great undertaking doesn’t happen overnight. Beavers gnaw at trees little by little until they are shaped to meet the needs of the Beaver’s vision. This takes time and patience. Beaver teaches us that great undertakings are accomplished a little at a time. Each step along the journey must happen in order to complete the vision.

Beavers also teach us the value of balance. A hard day’s work is a noble goal, but Beaver also teaches us to take time to recharge by allowing ourselves permission to play when the day’s work is accomplished. When the day’s work is done, don’t forget to sit back, take a little time for yourself, and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Beaver is a water creature, and water is a symbol of the mind; especially the unconscious mind. Our unconscious thoughts and motives are manifested in our dreams, so if Beaver is your totem, pay particular attention to your dream life and what it may have to tell you.

Beavers are also social creatures. Great undertakings happen when people are willing and able to work together. If Beaver is your totem, dreams are easier to build with a team helping. Seek out others who share your vision, and who are willing and able to help you to make your dreams a reality.
