What does it say about you. I have a Grizzly Bear ... My spirit guide/animal (she is my helper) ... Lots of folks like her because I get that question ... alot. So I thought I would share my reason for my avatar. The Grizzly bear has powerful life force, and a shaman with a grizzly bear power animal takes on this characteristic, becoming almost invincible when faced with physical or psychic attack. Beware the grizzly’s temper however, the dark side of this power. So now you know the Grizzly is my spirit guide and my avatar ... Now you can tell me about yours!
