Lizard Totem Meaning: Efficiency, Sensitivity, and Dreams
Lizard teaches us how to make efficient use of both our own resources, and those resources available to us within our environment. Lizards have long been associated with 'dream time' or the world of dreams, and can show up to act as guides into our dreams and subconscious. Lizards are also very sensitive to vibrations created through sound and movement, and helps us heighten and interpret our sensitivity.
Zuni Fetishes were considered to be so powerful by the U.S. Government that in the late 1800's Frank Hamilton Cushing was sent out to the Zuni Reservation to live among the Zuni people and investigate and study the mysterious power of the Zuni Fetishes. Zuni fetishes were also so well respected by other tribes, that they were and still are in high demand for a variety of purposes.
