Power Animals convey important messages to us all the time.
If a totem crosses your path in an usual way, think about what it is trying to tell you about your own life.
For example, if you dream about a specific animal, then overhear someone talking about the animal, and see a picture of one in a magazine all in a span of a day or two, these are signs of an unusual encounter.
