ELK - Elks represents the West on the Medicine Wheel – Water, emotions, the shadow self, and Autumn. Elk Medicine gives us stamina and endurance — the "don't give up" attitude. The vibration of Elk opens the third Chakra, the belly, our center of Self — our self esteem and self expression. Elk also represents friendship as it is a communal animal, hanging out with members of the same sex except during mating season.
