Often mistaken as a reptile, salamanders are highly sensitive & adaptable amphibians related to frogs that vary in species with a wide variety of breathing mechanisms ~ some breath through gills, some through lungs and others thru their skin ~ It seems the adaptability is a pre~cursor for other evolutions in creatures on Earth.

Salamander medicine teaches to be master at deception when it comes to survival from predators ~ They will even ‘lose’ their tail ~ let it drop off in front of a predator and wriggle it to confuse the predator as to what is the prey. These effective physiological self- preservation qualities ensure survival and give the Salamander peaceful serenity in the wild ~ No wonder they are ALWAYS smiling!

Initially humans thought Salamanders were born of fire as they’d run out of dried chopped logs that were used to burn as the ancient fires were lit. Salamander translates to ‘fire animal’ in old greek. The ancient misconception gave birth to the spirit medicine meaning of re~birth and purification of the soul.

Salamander medicine is serene, colourful, adaptable, highly unique, emotional, affectionate & enigmatic preferring alone time but so adaptable to any situation that reaching out and temporarily functioning out in society is easily completed with a huge quiet smile and always always uniqueness.

Salamander Spirit medicine urges us to adapt and search the  world for the lesser known or followed truths ~ If you receive Salamander Totem Medicine Spirit is showing you that your own uniqueness is a gift given to you along with intelligence and serenity to understand the ‘odder’ things in life. It is encouraging you to flourish in your own uniqueness and also asks you to balance your energies between alone time and group time.

Another unique quality about Salamander Medicine is that many fear the adorable critter as a reptile!!!!  Some even say they helped create the Dragon Myth as ancients were so fearful of them running out of fires! What this medicine does for you is help you realise that some may react in fear to you ~ do not take it personal ~ it is there mistake ~ You are a wonderful, unique, smart creature of Spirit and Earth. The rumourous misconceptions about your poisonous fearsome presence are nonsense ~ Be who and what you are all with a smile.

    How wonderful to read about that enigmatic creature. I saw a black and yellow one for the first time (and I live in the countryside for 24 years) and was fascinated by its shinyness. They look “poisonous”; happy they belong to frogs.

    Salamander symbolises spirit,for hindus are burned in funeral pyre so that the spirit which is unaffected by fire,gets relieved of the attachment with body.we can call the spirit world Salamandore

  3. we just found a family of salamander living on the threshold of the yoga studio door. literally under the welcome mat! what a blessing

  4. Do the different types carry additional or differing meanings? I refer to the Hell Bender specifically.

    • Love Blessings,
      sorry about the delay in answering. We are not online everyday.
      It has been m experience that variations in types of totems apply. For instance, a genetic variance in salamanders as in all species are for adaption and survival…and sometimes beauty. Whatever variances are in each type and what the variance is for we can interpret that specialty into the totem.
      To interpret look at color variances or region terrain & climate.
      In biology what does hell bender salamander known for. Be playful in interpretation of variations.

      Love & Light

  5. Hi! I live CT and after sub – zero temps for weeks now and snow storm after storm low and behold, a fat black and yellow spotted salamander was SLOWLY making its way across the 2.5ft of snow. He was nearly frozen! So I picked him up, put him in the basement in a large pot of soil. I dug him a long tunnel deep in the pot. He went in it. I will check on him later! My land here is very old Indian and very energy riddled. Poor little creature!

  6. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
    violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or
    outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the web without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d really appreciate it.
