Frog Animal Totem Symbolism
Frogs are the perfect symbols of the life cycle. Each one goes through enormous transitions in each of its stages, symbolizing that humans must do this, as well. We obviously go through physical transformations at various points in our life, but we must remember to evolve in our mental states, too.
Sometimes we must make dramatic changes, just like the frog does. While the frog’s transformative journey takes it into adulthood, for us it symbolizes reaching the desirable state of enlightenment and contentment.
Our journey is not complete without growing pains, and it’s best to accept and embrace this beforehand. Like the frog animal totem, we can take each struggle as an opportunity to learn. Frogs as spirit guides can also teach us lessons in fortune, renewal, reproduction, and purity.
A range of cultures accept the frog for differing spiritual symbols. Although many of them agree that a frog is symbolic of fertility due to the large number of eggs that females lay.
Ancient Egyptians recognized the goddess of fertility, Heket, as donning the head of a frog. Celtic symbolism associated the frog with healing and cleansing because of it always popping out after rain.
In both China and Japan, the frog is thought to bring good luck to journeys and child bearing. By contrast, ancient Hindus viewed this amphibian as a signal of darkness.

Symbolic Meaning Of Frog
When the tiny frog spiritual totem jumps into your life, it may be an indication that your immediate future will be a time to find opportunities.
It will be a time of change and transition, but the frog is there to help you just keep swimming through some of life’s tough periods. Frogs want us to enhance and deepen our power of intuition in order to strengthen our connection with the spirit world. It is an empowering creature, regardless of its small size, and places a high value on personal power. As a totem for travelers, the frog offers reassurance and moral support during journeys and adventures.
If the frog is your animal totem, you must be a great listener and advice giver. Your family is important to you and will do anything you can to help one of them. Throughout life, you have maintained close and meaningful relationships with your family members. And the frog reminds us to keep up this pattern throughout the rest of our lives.
Above all, you have the uncanny ability to relate to others on a very deep and personal level and always know exactly what to say. Frog people have true empathy towards all others and will always do their best to assist those who are hurting in the healing process.
You may do this by enabling them to release their negative energy onto you in order to help them cleanse themselves and start fresh. In this way, the small frog symbolism shows us that it can bear a lot more than we would expect and so, too, can you.
The characteristic leaping of a frog meaning in your dreams may suggest your lack of commitment. Rather than sticking to something (or anything), the frog prompts you to notice that you are jumping from one thing to another.
Finishing projects and commitments that you have already made is important, and you would do well to not develop a reputation for yourself as a quitter. Persist and finish tasks, and do not be afraid to extend yourself in relationships.
If you are trying to catch a frog in your dream, it is symbol signaling that your life is in the process of changing rapidly and that you may be trying to prevent this. Don’t be afraid of change. Embrace it, try it out, and, if it doesn’t work out, move on to the next. This is not to say that you should allow yourself to be plowed over without making a stand for yourself.
You may swallow a frog in your dreams, and from this you should gather that you are holding back something that you need to say. There is something that is preventing you from expressing yourself openly and honestly, and you must figure out what it is in order to move forward.
You mustn’t hold yourself back from the truth, but be mindful of exercising tact and consideration when you do express your feelings. Don’t let negative emotions take control.
