The frog totem, symbolic of cleansing

It is said that the frog is symbolic of the cleansing. You can call on the frog spirit to support you in clearing negativity and “toxic” energies. The frog being associated with water, it may be a good spirit animal to call for emotional release.

Perhaps it indicates you need to “detoxify and take care of your health differently. Or it encourages you to release your emotions or carefully at how you spend your energy in relationship to others or some matters of concern in your life.

Cleansing might also mean that the frog spirit animal inspires you to renew your perspective or vision. If the frog shows up in your life as a spirit guide, it may encourage you to clear old opinions and beliefs to adopt a new stance or perspective.


The frog spirit animal and rebirth

The frog totem symbolizes the cycles of life, in particular the rebirth stage. Its own journey through life, from tadpole to the adult state, reminds us of the many cycles of transformation and rebirth in our lives.

The symbolism of the frog as animal associated with birth and rebirth can be traced in Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome and other cultures from antiquity. The frog was a popular symbol for fertility, as well as rebirth or resurrection. For example, in the Ancient Egypt mythology, the frog was associated with resurrection; the Roman Venus, goddess of Love, was often depicted with a frog.

The frog, symbol of transformation  

The frog is an amphibian and goes easily from water to earth during its life. By extension, it has been often revered as a symbol of transition. If you see the frog as your animal totem or spirit guide, you may be called to experience change in your life. Those changes might be with regards to how you lead your life and can also be of spiritual nature.

Call on the frog spirit animal to guide you through times of transition and help you smoothly go from one state to the next. It will support your transformation or metamorphosis in a subtle yet powerful way.


The frog spirit, mystery and magic

The ability to go from water to earth is characteristic of the frog. Those who have the frog as a spirit animal or totem might be inclined to walk between planes, whether they are physical, spiritual or emotional, and enjoy playing with the magic of life and nature.

This animal being active at night, it is often seen as the favorite animal of the arts of the dark and witchcraft. By extension, this totem animal is associated with life mysteries and familiarity with the unknown.

The frog totem and the affinity with the water element

In the Native American tradition, the frog is often seen as a rain maker. Many shamanic traditions call the frog in connection to the rain and to control the weather patterns.

Since the frog is strongly associated with the water where she spend a lot of her life, this spirit animal is also connected to moon energy and the moon goddess. The fact that it’s active at night reinforces this association. For those who feel an affinity with the frog as personal totem, you may be at ease with the world of intuition, feminine energies, and the magic of nature and the elements.

    I love frogs.
    I have always loved frogs. And they have always been a part of my life.
    When I was little, there was a tree frog that found it’s way to my mother’s kitchen counter.
    They have sticky feet so they can climb up walls. 

    My mother put a little dish of water on the sink, next to where the faucet was.
    And the little frog would sit in the water!
    He would catch flies and mosquitoes.
    It was SO cute!

    Now, as an adult, I have a frog that lives in the bush in front of my house.
    Three days ago I ran into him.
    He was sitting by my front door when I got home from work at 2am. 
    He was hunting bugs, for my daughter and son in law leave the front light on for me. 
    I started watering his bush.
    I took 3 jugs of water and poured it at the bush, and he went and sat in the wet soil and leaves under the bush! 
    I’ve been doing this everyday since I saw him. 
    My daughter named him Fred.

    Today I went to Goodwill and bought a flat plate and placed it by his bush, and filled it with water, after watering his plant.
    I hope he is happy! 
    We are enjoying his presence!

    Today May 4, 2016 approximately 5:45 am I was woken up by noise outside like hail fallen from the sky but it was not raining then as I looked out the kitchen sliding door there was so rain n the noise continued as hail then noticed the sliding door moving back and forth and the knocking of hail – my husband woke up so I asked him to come look outside and as we were standing inside the sliding door we hear the pounding noise then to my surprise I see a big light brown frog trying to get in :-)I’ve never seen a frog here in the valley that big… The water springler had just started outside and so we just walked away and went back to bed.

    Out behind our home is a small pond with a bazillion frogs. One time I was metal detecting an rea by the pond a big bullfrog caught my eye. He stared at me and I at him and then as if to say goodbye he blinked and slid beneath the murky depths. I just remember his huge bulbous eyes. The only reason I mention him is because I can only remember seeing a frog that big 3 or 4 times in my life.

    I have had 3 frogs in my home this summer.  One in my shower, one in my basement and one in the family room.  Each one was a different type.  I was able to remove them easily with a cup.  None of them tried to get away from me.
