What your Animal Totem indicates about:

Your personality

Rabbit Animal Totem indicates that you are someone who sometimes struggles to keep a high self-esteem. Sometimes your self-esteem depends on what others think of you, or how they behave towards you. Even though you are able to scatter their opinions, you still let them linger in, more than you can handle. You may look for someone else to bring your spirit up.

Other than that, you are usually funny, creative, and positive. Not everyone loves your quirky side, but you know that you are unique, and you enjoy investing yourself on hobbies that make your soul happy. When you get what you want, or when people praise you, you are like the happy child that just got his favorite gift. Your funny side is what helps people deal with their own problems, but most of the times you don’t even realize how much you help others.

You should keep in mind, that nothing comes easy, and no one found success overnight. It may be hard for your timid personality, to deal with stronger personalities, but you are wise, and you can’t get played. You also know when to get yourself out of a situation, just as quickly as you are in it, if you feel it is not for you, or it is going to be a toxic situation in your life.

Your life at the current moment 

An Animal Totem is the Spirit Animal that accompanies you since the day you were born, until the end. Therefore, if Rabbit is your Animal Totem, it doesn’t indicate much about life at your current moment, unless it starts showing up in your dreams.

The Spirit Animal that guides you through certain events in your life, is usually an Animal Guide that chooses to walk with you for a limited period of time, until you learn your lesson, or you overcome the problem. It may also choose you, to help you amplify certain qualities that you need for the next phase in your life.

If Rabbit is the Spiritual Animal that chooses to accompany you, it is reminding you to keep an abundance mindset. Sometimes you may tend to entertain negative thoughts, for longer than you should. However, negative thinking will manifest lack, and will keep you in the same place. Therefore, Rabbit Spirit encourages you to think in terms of abundance, and prosperity. This way, you will be able to see the opportunities that you missed before, you will see the blessings that you have, and your problems will feel lighter. There is nothing you can’t tackle with a positive mindset.

What does dreaming about your Animal Totem mean?

If you have a dream where a Rabbit is present,it is a good sign for success, and a positive future. If you are working on a project, or you are anxious about the outcome of a situation, Rabbit indicates that you will have positive results.

On the other hand, a Rabbit in a dream, could also mean that you are afraid of something, and you trying to run away from responsibility, rather than face it. Rabbits can also represent unclean thoughts, or negative ways of thinking.

Rabbits in dreams can bring in news of pregnancy. They may be a sign of fertility, or that you are ready to create a family of your own.

A dead rabbit would indicate a boring life, or lack of vitality.

How do you handle your life based on your Animal Totem?


If you have the Rabbit Animal Totem, it indicates that you may be in love with the idea of love, more than the person. You are someone who value family a lot, and you want to create your own family as soon as possible. This mindset can throw you in the arms of people that don’t know how to treat you well, or that hurt you a lot. However, you do not hold back from finding real love, and that one person who is going to commit to you. Often, you daydream a whole future with people you have met just once, and you lose yourself in relationships, because you don’t set boundaries.

You are too focused on creating a family, and sometimes it becomes toxic. You tend to invest in relationships that are not healthy for you, or partners that do not give you what you need. You can only come in terms with accepting the toxicity of a relationship, once you have broken up. Until then, you were willing to give everything you had, only to create a family.

The perfect partner for you would be someone who appreciates you, cares for you, and loves your quirks. Your partner is someone who can invest on you, who has potential to build the foundations of a family. Your partner should also have a tender heart, and not take you for granted.


Rabbit Totem indicates that you settle for jobs that seem to fulfill your material needs. You are not someone who likes to experiment on different opportunities, or side hustles. You prefer a job where you can exercise your professional knowledge, get paid well, and call it a day. Even though you may like to expand your knowledge on other things, you don’t have your focus on monetarizing what you learn.

You like to keep it simple, and play it safe. You may not like investments schemes, or even if you try to jump on the wagon, you will jump out just as soon, because the fear of losing money will make you stay in a safe zone. This mindset doesn’t fit the business world, or entrepreneurship, so it is best for you to work a job, and try to grow from there, rather than have your own business.

Regarding finances, Rabbit Totem is good indicator of financial success. As the spirit of prosperity, and abundance, it indicates that you are going to be very wealthy at some point in your life, as a result of your own hard work, or because you will marry into wealth. Material things, or money, are not the most important thing to you, and you aren’t a gold digger, but it is your destiny to enjoy a fortune.

Relationship with yourself

Rabbit Animal Totem reveals your inner struggles, as well as your true self, which you may hide from others. You may have anxiety, or many other irrational fears, that hold you back from living the life that you want. You may have developed a protective mechanism to deal with your many fears, or anxiety, by learning how to be alone, and how to create a routine that provides you comfort.

At one point, you will get tired by the restrictions you have placed on yourself. You have to step outside of your comfort zone if you are willing to live a more fulfilled life. Anxiety, or fears, won’t go away immediately, but they can be overcome, if you find the courage to face your fears.

It starts with accepting that you are the person who can manifest the life that you want, and you are the one who can decide on the life that you want to live. You have to take responsibility for the limitations you have placed, for the old paradigms that you still believe, and continue by changing your mindset, and your beliefs. Soon, you will be motivated to break the old patterns, and experience more of what life has to offer.

If you want to connect with your Rabbit Animal Totem, you can take a page from the book of the Native American Traditions. You don’t have to wear the skin of the Rabbit on you, but you can keep nice Rabbit sculptures at your work desk. You can have a beautiful artwork of the Rabbit printed at your blouse, or a paint of the Rabbit on your wall. You can also buy jewelry that has a Rabbit signature in it, like the head, or footprints.

You can use these objects to focus on during your meditation, in order to connect with Rabbit Animal Totem. During your meditation, you may want to call upon your Rabbit Animal Totem, and ask to be blessed with the qualities that you need at the moment.

Try to feel the specific quality amplifying in you. Act as being a Rabbit is your second nature. This is also how you honor your Spirit Guide, Rabbit Totem.

If you feel that you can’t visualize the Rabbit well, which is important for your meditation process to work, you can think about the qualities you want to embody, and try to feel those qualities growing in you. You have to embrace the Rabbit energy in all aspects of it: physically, energetically, spiritually, and emotionally. It may also help to watch a movie with Rabbits.


You may find that during the course of your life, other Spirit Animals will choose to walk with you for a while, to guide you in different areas of your life. It is possible, that while you have Rabbit Animal Totem, you can also be guided by other Spirit Animals. However, you will notice that your core values, the same qualities you share with the Rabbit, won’t change. You will still be witty, funny, creative, and abundant.   Different Spirit Animals help you see other paths, that only those can help, and guide through. They also help you develop other qualities, because the purpose is for you to grow.

For example, if you will be accompanied by Black Panther Totem, which is there to help you develop your inner strength, your wisdom, and help you navigate the dark side of life. Rabbit Totem will always be there, even if you won’t always have other Spirit Animals.
