Totem Animals and Citrine

Totem Animals and Citrine
"Pounding hooves, tossing mane,
Take me swiftly on my life's journey.
Loyal friend, carry me to a place of safety.
Lift me over the obstacles of my path."
-D.J. Conway

 During a Reiki session, I had a vision. In this vision I was in a field, enjoying the vastness and the serene beauty. A large brown stallion came to me. I knew this beautiful creature was meant for me. I got unto his back and we raced through the field with utter abandonment! He brought me to a stream that divided the field and a wooded area. I got off the horse and went to the stream and placed some of my fingers in the cool water. There were some fish that looked similar to Koi, but were silver in color. They were curious about my fingers and swam around them. When I looked up into the wooded area on the other side of the stream, a gray wolf was there. Utter calm. There was no aggression, just a peaceful trust. In the next moment, I was on the brown stallion, with the gray wolf at our side running through the wooded area. We were headed to this red glow. At first I was a bit hesitant about this glow, but glancing over at the wolf, I felt a deep sense of calm and knew that this was our destination. Once we reached the red glow, which now was a bright red light, I dismounted the horse and entered the red light. I then started to absorb this red light into myself, my animal companions watching.
I have always loved horses and feel that this was a confirmation that the horse is my power/ totem animal. The gray wolf felt like a guide during this vision and I hope and think, I will see him again.
 During this Reiki session, I was using my large citrine point. What I love about Citrine is the warmth and comfort that it offers. A safety blanket of sorts! It energizes all levels of one’s life. This is a great stone for creativity and abundance also, being used frequently in prosperity grids.  “Citrine awakens the higher mind.” (The Crystal Bible, Judy Hall) This means that meditation with Citrine can yield some pretty remarkable results. Such as this vision that I shared above. I am not one that easily has visions, even more so - ones that are so clear. Citrine allowed me to be open to new ideas and thoughts, so that my totem animals and spirit guide could reach me! Do you know your Totem Animal or Spirit Guide? Leave me a comment!
