Meet your city totem animal

From Christopher Penczak’s City Magick:

EXERCISE 7 — TOTEM JOURNEY

1. Start with an intention to meet your city totem animal. Do not think about what it could be, or what you hope it will be. Just affirm out loud or to yourself that you intend to know your city totem.

2. Start Exercise 5. Before you feel yourself enter a tunnel or step on a long and winding road, ask and intend that your city totem be at the end of the pathway.

3. When you reach the end, your totem will appear in your inner vision. Let it come easily. The animal may speak to you, or may be silent, communicating through actions, intuition, or by leading you to something you need to see. The meeting is often simple and brief, or it may lead to a journey. Follow the spirit vision quest and let your unconscious mind take over. You will go from a point of visualizing your creature to letting go of preconceived notions. Go with the flow. Let the adventure lead you where it may.

4. When the journey feels complete, ask your totem to guide you back through the path or tunnel and return your perceptions to the physical. If you feel light-headed upon return, make sure to ground yourself.
