Great post, Judith. I really enjoyed reading it. My greatest fear is sharks. Like you, I hated turning the page of a magazine to find a shark there. Shark week? No thanks, I have to cover my eyes when the ads come on tv. I'm not sure why I can't even look at a picture of one, and this started in about 2nd grade. In 2nd grade I had not ever seen a picture of one and in my dreams they looked like flying fish. I truly believe in a past life I was probably ship wrecked and injured or killed by a shark.
Very odd that the snake is now your totem!
Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Diana. I was pretty freaked out when I was told I had a double animal totem. Thankfully I'd done that NLP work so I wasn't hysterical. One of the things I learned was to appreciate the characteristics of what I once feared.
I find it interesting and useful to read up on the qualities of various members of the animal kingdom when I notice any bird/animal I don't usually see. And I also read up on the ones that are so numerous they seem common to me. What is it I can learn from them? Always very enlightening.
