Majestic forest kind with antlers high,
Mighty strength belongs to you.
Fill my mind with common sense
To do the things that I must do.


Stamina, Strength, Nobility

An Elk totem teaches you how to pace yourself.
You might not be the first to arrive,
but you will arrive without burning out.
Don't try for quick and easy;
long and steady is the key to reaching your goals.

If you have an Elk totem, you will feel the need for companionship
or group support.   You do not have to do everything alone,
help is out there waiting for you if you just ask for it.

People with Elk totems have a need for high energy levels
and this can be accomplished through their foods.
A diet that is mostly vegetarian will give you strength without stress.
Vitamins are a good supplement.
If you find yourself becoming sluggish,
adjust your diet and in a couple of days, you will recover your stamina.

And don't forget to replenish yourself with some personal quiet time.
