Resistance to Change

Arctic Wolf lives in a land frozen in time where, for three quarters of the year, frigid winds blow
across the tundra, creating landscapes of sculpted ice. Here, all life holds its breath while
awaiting longer days that will bring the sun to gently bathe all in it's golden light, coaxing the
emergence of new life to dance for a while in its brilliant rays. Walking across these bridges and
valleys of glimmering snow, the Arctic Wolf, thick white coat ruffled in the frosty breath of the
Northern wind, is in a state of contented ~Oneness~ with his surroundings.

***It is said that at the door of each of the Four Winds, a wolf keeps silent vigil, each bringing
change to the life of those who walk the Good Red Road and with the change, a lesson unique to that Wind.

The Arctic Wolf is the Wolf of the North Winds. He stands quietly in rigid determination,
unyielding at times, much as the barren landscapes of his home appear to resist the beginning of
Spring. She is a soul that is comfortable with her surroundings and therefore sees no "reason" to change.

Yet the promise of the North Wind is Wisdom unfolding through gratitude and acknowledgment.
This is the Direction in which Wisdom is sifted from the sands of experience and then fashioned
into a Red staff of Manifesting that wields personal potential. Therefore, if White Wolf Soul can
accept change when it appears, yet remain true to his/her values, then the higher vibration of
Wisdom and Truth can emerge from beneath stubborn resistance like shoots of sweet summer
grass bursting forth from a blanket of winters snow. Thus, Personal Power can be embraced,
understood and ultimately, the souls individual potential manifested.***

In a climate in which very little life can exist, Arctic Wolf thrives. Drifts of snow gather in
intricate patterns and shapes, castles of frozen snow glittering in the brilliant light. Wind, cold
enough to freeze exposed flesh, passes nearly unnoticed by Arctic Wolf as he roams the blinding
white expanse of his territory, thick white fur keeping him well insulated . . . Mother Earth has
prepared him well.

***The individual with Arctic Wolf as their Power Totem is one who is capable of withstanding
numerous challenges and setbacks, only to emerge stronger than before. It is little wonder that
these souls will often face adversity in their lives in order to build the resilience with which to
overcome obstacles? Paradoxically, they are also gentle souls with a great deal of emotional
sensitivity . . . and this is the area in which they are likely to encounter their greatest lessons. Yet
by calling upon the inner strength and resilience of the Arctic Wolf, they can triumph and raise
their heads with gratitude to the loving rays of the Sun.***

The Arctic lands stretch for miles, blinding white expanses that demand respect of all who dwell
there. Upon this vista of pristine white, the Arctic Wolf roams his territory in search of food, a
mate or any encroaching threat and will travel up to twenty miles a day, or more, to perform his tasks.

To withstand the harshness of the unrelenting winds, the brutality of an unforgiving and bitterly
cold climate, and to do this while traversing many miles, the Arctic Wolf has been engineered
with tremendous stamina to fulfill her role in Nature.

***Arctic Wolf soul is an individual who is capable of performing nearly miraculous bouts of
stamina that would weary other souls as she travels the good Red Road.

He possesses within him the ability to push his body and mind to the limits, and in fact, can
appear to even derive pleasure from doing so.

With each new goal that has been met, Arctic Wolf individual will then set his/her sights on the
next task at hand. Preferably the new goal will be even more challenging than the one just
completed, as this engenders the ~acknowledgment~ within their own reasoning that they are
~worthy~ of that which has been given to them, yet the truth of the matter is that anything they
have received, has been honestly won.***
