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.

Dreaming About Frogs

Perhaps the most well know symbolic meaning of the frog is to look beneath the surface. Is there really a prince under the surface? The frog may be asking you to look deeper. What appears to be a curse, may indeed be a blessing after all!

Other meanings are success and contentment. Whether the frog is in a pond or on your plate, it may be a symbol of being content and successful in your sphere of expertise.

The frog is also a symbol of fertility and abundance. Not only do the young tadpoles resemble sperm in appearance, but there are usually lots of them. This is often associated with abundance in your life.

    I’m finding frogs, of different sizes and colors in the channel of the Rav4 back door, of all places. I’m constantly shooing them out. What’s does this mean?

    What does it mean when you find a frog above your head. There is a frog just above to the right of my doorway croaking and I have no idea how it got there. I know there’s symbolism for the front porch or infront of the door but does anybody know what it means when it’s above the door? Sincerely, Kara T.

      Hi Kara!

      As you, I have always wondered about certain things. Frogs have been present VERY much for the past week or so for me: they’ve always been on my porch and at the light, one jumped on my head then hung over my right eye, just sitting there on my forehead. We drove past a seafood place, frog legs on the new menu, etc…. I finally realized to go read about the dang frogs!!! There is a language for everything. If we tune in, we can understand. Before I saw the meaning of the frog, I had a question that I asked the universe. The question has now been answered. Trust in Love.

      Oh my goodness! I had a small lime green frog perched on the door of my front door for 3days straight. At a point I thought it was dead because it didn’t move, then on the 3rd day it was gone. I tried to figure what it meant as the 1st year anniversary of my Mom’s passing is around the corner (November 1st) Any explanation to this or am I just reaching? Thanks 🙂

    I found a florescent green tree frog in my shoe . It was a big one . Then it changed color. It was a darker green when it left the shoe. Also started off in my right shoe and somehow it came out of my left shoe. I thought it wasa different frog. There was only one frog in the the shoe. Magickal???
