Animal Totem Awakening

Shamanic Healing and Guidance in Working with Your Power Animals


You know that Spirit Animals hold incredible power and wisdom, and you desire to learn from them.

You are connected with your Animal Guides and Teachers, but want to go deeper.

You are ready to awaken to your powerful Animal Totem Allies.

Michelle, I greatly enjoyed our [Animal Totem] work today. When we started my long time and primary animal spirit guide, the white horse, “released” me to work with the Wolf pack today. Go, learn, listen. I welcomed Wolf to my journey and am comforted by her wisdom to guide me.

After coming home there was a feeling of increased vibration and having been “stretched” outside the normal limits of my body but not in a bad or painful way. Just expanded. I’m still processing but as I said after our session, I am not the same and don’t expect to ever be, and that’s a good thing. Thank you for your guidance in Wolf song. I welcome Wolf into my being. I have always admired the balance, nurturing and fairness of the pack and think it has much to teach me.

Empower Yourself with Animal Medicine

Connect with your Animal Totems and integrate their wisdom. They are your powerful allies for awakening your purpose and power.

For thousands of years, people from all cultures have drawn some of their most powerful medicine from Animal Totems. They would go on deep trance journeys and vision quests to discover their Animal Guides and return with them to the Earth plane, where they would hold ceremony and ritual to honor the Totem and receive its medicine. Through working with their Power Animals, people were able to access the raw energy of nature and channel it into incredible feats of healing, transformation and magic in their lives. We continue this ancient practice today by honoring Animal Medicine and reintegrating traditional wisdom into our modern context.

Call upon the power of your Animal Totems, bring their energy to life within you and awaken your own Power and Purpose.

Eagle Song: Honoring the Wisdom and Medicine of Animal Guides

I began consciously journeying with animal guides in 2003, when I was 15 years old. For many years, I kept it mostly to myself and worked deeply with it as part of my personal practice. Then, in 2012, I was offering healing and blessings to a pair of bald eagles, when they told me:

“Eagle Song is more than the cries of the bird—it is the BEING of an eagle. It is the movement of air over feathers and the flexing of powerful feet and talons. It is observing without being observed. It is intensely knowing your body and valuing every part: there is no waste, only maximum efficiency for flight.

But there is a part beyond our physical selves: that which lives between the layers and flies to the sun and back. This, too, is Eagle Song. Our wisdom comes from intimately knowing these parts and uniting them in our Highest Selves. We—and you, too, Child of Earth and Light—are far more than our physical bodies.”

I took this message to heart and began offering my work with Animal Guides to the public. In 2015 I participated in a traditional Native American dance ceremony, during which the Eagles told me that I am an Eagle Song Carrier. I honor their teachings by connecting other people with the wisdom of the Animal Tribe.

The Two Paths of Animal Totem Awakening

I offer two paths to working with your Spirit Animals: Chakra Totem Awakening (get to know and work with several of your Animal Guides), and Magic & Medicine (dive deep with one Animal Guide). Read on to see which path resonates most with you!

Chakra Totem Awakening

Integrate Animal Medicine into your Chakra System during this nine-week journey.

Did you know that you have more than one Animal Guide?

In addition to your predominant guides, you have an Animal Totem specifically associated with each of your Chakras. Integrate their medicine into your Chakra system to receive support in all areas of your life:

  1. Do you struggle with stability around your family, home and finances? Call upon the wisdom of your Root Chakra Totem to cultivate a strong foundation.
  2. Do you have trouble with healthy expression of your emotions and sexuality? Are you creatively blocked? Work with your Sacral Chakra Totem to receive the healing you need.
  3. Do you want to feel completely connected to your own source of Power? Do you want to be comfortable and confident presenting your identity to the world? Your Solar Plexus Chakra Totem will support you in your empowerment.
  4. Are you struggling with cultivating loving relationships with yourself and others? Do you want to know the beauty of your own heart? Explore your relationship to love with your Heart Chakra Totem and grow your capacity to love and be loved.
  5. Do you have trouble speaking your truth and communicating your ideas? Call upon your Throat Chakra Totem to help you clearly and easily share your voice with the world.
  6. Do you want to develop your intuition and perception? Connect more deeply with your guidance by integrating the medicine of your Third Eye Chakra Totem.
  7. Do you desire a deeper connection to Spirit and All That Is? Are you ready to claim your own Divinity? Call upon your Crown Chakra Totem to help you bridge the gap.

Discover the unique characteristics of your Totem and build the foundation of a strong connection with its medicine.

I will guide you to connect with your Totem to receive messages, as well as channel messages from your Totem. Learn why this Guide is appearing to you and how it wants to reveal its teachings. You will have an opportunity to ask questions and hear everything that your Totem wants to say.

You will practice embodiment and shapeshifting to bring your Totem's medicine to life and make its energy actionable on the Earth plane.

The Manifesto (Week 4)

In this final session with your Animal Totem, I will help you uncover any remaining messages. Together with your Guide, you will delve into the purpose of your work with this Totem. How does this Animal Guide want you to bring its medicine into the world? What steps can you take to honor its teachings? Why did this Totem choose you to bring its energy to the Earth plane?

"I am beyond thrilled to be participating in Michelle Hawk's New Moon Rising intensive transformation program. As a healer and guide, I often don't get enough energy work or support myself with the magical community that I have access to even when I know I need it. This seems to be a common thread for many in my field. I am so happy to have committed to this deep dive with Michelle as she is truly an incredible practitioner.

Michelle's work is so powerful and authentic. Unlike many healers which have only recently come through their awakening to their gifts, Michelle has been doing this work since she was a young girl and studying intensely since an early teen. She brings a lot of tools to the table. More than I can even express here.

She is a pure channel. I dare say one of the best. She is fully in control of her channel. She has brought through guides, Angels, Ascended masters, lost aspects of self and other beings as needed. She is clear with them and not afraid to interact with beings that might seem negative to get a hold on their wisdom and why they are there. In this, I felt completely held, safe and connected.

In session she weaves through the Shamanic and energetic realms while bringing forth soul songs and profound messages. It is so much fun to find a sister that works both a lot like me and in totally different ways as well.

In this program, she has given me so many questions to go over to really dive into my life, what I am noticing, experiencing, ready to let go of and wanting to call into my being. I really am excited to see where I am at the end because I can already feel huge shifts occurring."

– Katherine Bird, Shaman and Transformational Coach. San Diego, CA

"Michelle, I would love to take a moment to let you know how this work has impacted my life in such a deep way. I am so grateful to experience your gifts, and let you know personally that much is shifting in my life. I am feeling all of the deepest intentions we held together at the beginning of this process were given a space to be planted. I will be thrilled as the unfolding of what is meant to be birthed comes forward."

– Jennifer Alyse, Visionary Entrepreneur and founder of the Empowered Event. Portland, OR

"It has been a complete honor to journey with you. My overall experience was blissful. I experienced such Grace, and an opening of peace within myself I have never felt before. The greatest shift that has been present for me is a deep, grounded trust in the Universe. I feel so supported and guided.

I feel you have a tremendous gift in how you approach the individual sessions. In fact, I found them to be so powerful that I had to clear out my schedule for the rest of the day. I noticed tremendous shifts each week. I feel that I am still integrating the work that was done.

I feel that helping people tune into the potent rhythm of the Universal Cycle of Power and how it correlates to intentions is powerful. Imagine if each person knew within themselves they had the power to co-create their reality and be in alignment with the cosmos... It is revolutionary work you are offering, and I am so humbly grateful to have been a part. In fact, it went by so quickly that I would love to experience it again."

– Melinda Essig, Visionary Artist. Portland, OR

"I have been sharing your incredible offerings with quite a few women in the past couple of days. I can feel the potency of your vision so strongly, and I am appreciating the intention you are bringing to this program. I am so honored and grateful for this journey, and I am in awe and such humble gratitude for our experience. I deeply felt our first session and have been highly sensitive to my surroundings the past two days. In fact, after our latest session, I had to lie down and sleep. It is such an honor, and I am so grateful to experience this with you."

– P. J. Portland, OR

"THANK YOU for taking me through such an incredible experience!! It's been such a powerful move. I'm feeling lighter already :). I feel as though I've taken a big step on the path toward working on my big picture goals (that I'll probably be working on for my entire life)."

– M. O. Portland, OR
