Primal Energies

The Crocodile or Alligator totem
contains the unbridled creative
forces of the world,
the fury and ferocity of Primal Energies.
It is the symbol of creation and destruction.



The Crocodile or Alligator is the keeper and protector of all knowledge.
She is the primal mother in whom all knowledge rests and waits to be born.
People with a Crocodile or Alligator totem have the opportunity
to develop new wisdom but they must be careful not to be consumed by this wisdom.
Study each bit of knowledge carefully before going on to the next.

Care of the eyes is important for Crocodile or Alligator people.
Also beneficial are breathing techniques like those practiced in Yoga.

When a Crocodile or Alligator shows up
look for an opportunity to touch very primal energies.
There will be an opportunity for new knowledge and wisdom.
