Here are some articles I had saved in my notepad that may interest you Sunny. If not... they are about having Black Panther as a totem or Power animal as others amy also have. Just informative info to share.
===============================================
.black panther totem and as Jesus the panther
.
PANTHER - denotes caution is necessary. A savage and cunning animal. has superior fighting courage of the female. In the positive, it has a beautiful voice, it symbolizes Christ. The Panther is said to keep the diabolical dragon away. A black panther is considered especially dangerous


THE PANTHER AS A TOTEM
The panther is a very powerful and ancient totem. It is generally associated with a particular species of leopard or jaguar although the cougar is also referred to as panther. As with most of the large cats, the panther is a symbol of ferocity and valor. It embodies aggressiveness and power, but without the solar significance. In the case of the Black Panther, there is definitely a lunar significance. The panther has over 500 voluntary muscles that they can use at will. This reflects a lot about an individual who has such animals as totems. It reflects an ability to do a variety of tasks as he or she wills. It is simply a matter of deciding and putting to use those particular "muscles" - be they physical, mental, psychic, or spiritual. As a whole panthers are loners (solitary) although they do associate with others, they are most comfortable by themselves or within their own marked territory. They are drawn to those individuals who are likewise often solitary.
Of all the panthers, probably the Black Panther has the greatest mysticism associated with it. It is the symbol of the feminine, the dark mother, the dark of the moon. It is the symbol for the life and power of the night. It is a symbol of the feminine energies manifest upon the earth. It is often a symbol of darkness, death, and rebirth from out of it. There still exists in humanity a primitive fear of the dark and of death. The Black Panther helps us to understand the dark and death and the inherent powers of them; and thus by acknowledging them, eliminate our fears and learn to use the powers.
In China there were five mythic cats, sometimes painted like tigers or leopards. The black reigns in the north with winter as its season of power, and water it's most effective element. This is the element of the feminine. This is the totem of greater assertion of feminine in all her aspects: child, virgin, seductress, mother, warrioress, seeress, old wise woman.
When the Black Panther enters your life as a totem, it awakens the inner passions. This can manifest in unbridled expressions of baser powers and instincts. It can also reflect an awakening of the kundalini, signaling a time of not just coming into one's own power. More so, the keynote of the Black Panther is Reclaiming One's True Power. In mythology and scripture, the panther has been a symbol of the "Argos of a Thousand Eyes," who guarded the heifer IO who was loved by Zeus. After his death, the eyes were transferred to the feathers of the peacock. The panther always brings a guardian energy to those to whom it comes.
The panther has also been attributed to Jesus. In the Abodazara (early Jewish commentaries on the scriptures), it is listed as a surname for the family of Joseph. It tells how a man was healed "in the name of Jesus ben Panther." Because of this the panther often signals a time of rebirth after a period of suffering and death on some level. This implies that an old issue may finally begin to be resolved, or even that old longstanding wounds will finally begin to heal, and with the healing will come a reclaiming of power that was lost at the time of wounding.
In the myths and stories of Dionysus the panther is a symbol of unleashing desires, and thus the awakening of the kundalini forces. The panther symbolizes a time of moving from mere poles of existence to a new life without poles or barriers. The panther in a Dionysic manner awakens the unconscious urges and abilities that have been closed down. It signals a time of imminent awakening.
To the Indians of North and South America, the jaguar especially in the form of the Black Panther - was endowed with great magic and power. The jaguar panther climbs, runs, and swims - even better than the tiger. Because it could function so well in so many areas, it became the symbol of mastery over all dimensions. To the Tucano Indians of the Amazon, the roar of the jaguar was the roar of thunder. Thus the Black Panther was the god of darkness and could cause eclipses by swallowing the sun. This reflects the tremendous power inherent within the feminine forces. To those with the panther as a totem, this power will increasingly be experienced. The Arawak Indians say that everything has jaguar. Nothing exists without it. It is the tie to all life and all manifestations of life (thus ties to the eternal feminine within all life). To them, becoming the man-jaguar was the ultimate shapeshifting ritual. The Olmecs created monuments to the jaguar, and the Aztecs and Mayans spoke and taught about the power in becoming half-human and half-jaguar. One who can become a jaguar is shorn of all cultural restrictions. The alter ego is free to act out desires, fears, aspirations. The Indian shamans would perform rituals to borrow jaguar power. One who could do such could do great good or great ill.
Nietzsche once said that "that which does not kill us makes us stronger." It is this same idea that is awakened in the lives of those who open to the power of the panther totem. Those things of childhood and beyond that created suffering and which caused a loss of innate power and creativity are about to be reawakened, confronted and transmuted. The panther marks a new turn in the heroic path of those to whom it comes. It truly reflects more than just coming into one's own power. Rather it reflects a reclaiming of that which was lost and an intimate connection with the great archetypal force behind it. It gives an ability to go beyond what has been imagined, with opportunity to do so with discipline and control. It is the spirit of imminent rebirth."

Panthera - The Dark Father of Jesus?
Blavatsky - Joseph Pantira/Panthera as Jesus Father
Jesus [Latin of Greek Iesous from Hebrew Yeshua` contraction of Yehoshua` a proper name meaning savior or helper, or that which is spacious or widespread] Indubitably a historical character, whose life as narrated in the Gospels is pure allegory, a story of the initiation chamber. There is a story current from medieval times among the Jews, mentioned in the Sepher Toledoth Yeshua` (Book of the Generations of Jesus), to the effect that the Jesus of the Gospels was a Jehoshua ben Panthera, a Jewish adept living about 100 BC. Jesus illustrates the typical sequence in occult history:
1) the coming of a leader or teacher to a people needing to be led and taught;
2) his passing, followed by the adoration, even worship, of his followers;
3) the gradual transformation of historic facts into more or less embroidered legends or mythological tales, which in time cluster so thickly about his memory that his identity as a person, and even his name, are lost;
4) the myth, allegory, or legend; and
5) the efforts of other, later teachers to explain, interpret, and reinstate this earlier teacher, now a purely mythic figure or else materialized and misunderstood.
The Christian Gospels appear to have originated in mystery-dramas, beautiful and often sublime in their inner significances, in which were depicted the experiences of the neophyte and adept in his union with the Logos, and hence such unified individual was called a Logos incarnate as a man, the Logos itself being variously named as Christos or Dionysos, and to have been by stages adapted and given a semi-historical guise, as has happened in other instances besides the Christian mythos. Christ therefore, or the Christos, is not a particular man or an especial incarnation of divinity, but a generic term for the divine as incarnated in all human beings, although Jesus was undoubtedly the name of this great Jewish initiate-avatara as an individual. Hence this universal allegory in its Christian version has a true historical peg to hang from; for there did appear, sometime before the Christian era, a special cyclic messenger who was due to come on the change of the ecliptic point from one sign of the celestial zodiac to another, from the sign of Aries to Pisces. In theosophical literature, Jesus is considered to be an avatara, the messenger for the European Messianic or Piscean cycle. As such, Jesus represented a ray sent from the Wondrous Being or spiritual hierarch of the earth into the soul of a pure human being, while the racial buddha, Gautama Buddha, supplied the intermediate or psychological nature in this act of white magic.
"But it is probable that the theosophic effort which Jesus attempted to initiate did not endure for fifty years after his death. Almost immediately after his passing, his disciples, all half-instructed, and in some cases almost illiterate, men . . . foisted upon the world of their time the forms and beliefs of early Christianity; and had there been nothing but these, that religious system had not lived another fifty years. But what happened? During the oncoming of the dark cycle after Jesus (which began as before said about the time of Pythagoras), the last few rays from the setting sun of the ancient light shone feebly in the minds of certain of these Christian Fathers, Clement of Alexandria for one, and Origen of Alexandria for another, and in one or two more like these, who had been initiated at least in the lowest of some of the then degenerate pagan Mysteries; and these men entered into the Christian Church and introduced some poor modicum of that light, . . . which they still cherished; and these rays they derived mainly from the Neo-pythagorean and the Neoplatonic system" .
The Hebrew name Jah or Jehovah became identified in the mind of Christians with the name of Jesus, although Jesus never was in any wise identical with the Jewish Jehovah, but was identified in initiation through his own inner god or Father in Heaven, and the Jewish Jehovah mystically was the regent of the planet Saturn.
The first three letters in Greek make I.H.S. placed at the head of representations of the crucified Jesus, often said to stand for Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus the savior of men) or In hoc signo (in this sign), with reference to the alleged vision of a cross of the Emperor Constantine. Jesus is a form of a worldwide mystery-name, whose importance was its meaning, usually given as a three-letter monogram, analogous to the Sanskrit Aum. We find it in the Greek Gnostic Iao and variants are common in ancient Greece, such as Iasios, Iasion, Iason, Iasos; and initiates were known as Iasides or sons of Iaso.
Panthera or Pandira According to the apocryphal Jewish writing Sepher Toledoth Yeshua` (book of the genealogy of Jesus), Jesus was the son of Joseph Panthera, supposed by tradition to have been a Roman soldier, and Mary; hence he was known as Ben Panthera (Panthera's son).

Wow! Thank you Laura Ann! What you have posted was very helpful and fits into what I experienced really well. The black panther of my totem sits in the heart of the tree of life. It has so much power that I am afraid to play with it. I also have the Egyptian goddess Selket's scorpion sitting on the top of my head (Selket and I were close in several past lives) and its power scares me a bit also. What do you know about what today's world has to say about Selket and her scorpion? She was a major player and goddess with the desert tribes before the Egyptians came to what has become Egypt and before the Egyptians incorporated her into their religious stuff. Love, Sunny

The black panther of my totem sits in the heart of the tree of life
your very welcome Sunny. I thought you might like to read them.
I believe the black panther sitting in the tree of life is also metaphoric for the white light (no matter it's size )that sits in each indivudual persons heart chamber as well. Just my personal beleif.
I had before or it may have been for about a year after I had a major kundalani awakening a huge black panther come every night and sleep at the foot of my bed. It always waited till I was in sleep posiition (lol) then I would feel it walk across the bed and curl up at me feet and lay along my legs. This happened for about ayear. Then it left and has never returned that I am aware of.
What do you know about what today's world has to say about Selket and her scorpion?
I know who she is and what she represents. her link to the feline race as well. I will look through my notepad and documents to see if I have saved anything pertinant to her.As far as what today's world thinks on it I ususally take little credence in it as usually it has been so distorted. I will see what I have on her from a more historical perspective.

She connects to scorpians ,serpents and snakes. To death and magical powers.
She ahs power over life and death.She protects parts of the underworld.
She is often also seen as a lion with acrocodile coming out her back.
She embodies what must die in order for you to be reborn.She can see into the center of your fears.
She watches over the West and a persons intestines.
Her name means one who tightens the throat or causes it to breathe.
She helps souls adjust to life in the Underworld
Sometimes, her name is associated with the scorching heat of the sun. Together with Neith, she became one of the guardians of the marriage union by watching the sky and ensuring that no one will disturb Amun, The God Creator, and his wife.

She is also the patron of healers as well as magicians.
Selket and the Scorpion
The famous symbol of Selket was the scorpion, an insect that was numerous in the desert regions of ancient Egypt. The scorpion symbolized chaos and were believed to be forms taken by the restless dead. Scorpion amulets depicting Selket were used as protection against scorpion stings. Magic spells invoking the protection of Selket were placed on the gateways to temples and in the houses of the ancient Egyptians. Scorpions have four pairs of legs, two large claws and a tail ending with a pair of small stingers that connect to a gland in which the venom (poison) is stored. The venom of scorpions is neurotoxic meaning it has a destructive or poisonous effect on nerve tissue. Scorpion stings release a poison which interferes with the nervous system and can cause paralysis and difficulties with breathing, usually resulting in death by asphyxiation (suffocation). The title of a “Follower of Serket” was given to her priest physicians. The doctor priests had medical prescriptions and magical spells to treat the stings and they also applied 'treatment by the knife'. Scorpion amulets were placed around the necks of people who had been stung and magic spells were incanted invoking the help of Selket.
**Another Egyptian scorpion-goddess called Hedetet resembled Selket and was depicted with the head of a scorpion and sometimes pictured nursing a baby
Selkhat goes back to the earliest period of recorded Ancient Egyptian history.

The scorpion is a fierce creature, always ready to attack. Not surprisingly, the scorpion goddess was considered to be a protector in various situations. Less obvious are her associations with sacred marriage and the fact that she can be considered the patron of clinical toxicologists.

The scorpion is a symbol of motherhood in many sources from the Ancient Near East, possibly because the female carries her young on her back. Ancient Egypt took over these concepts in seeing Serqet as a protector of mothers, children and pregnant women.

This is primarily expressed in the story of Serqet helping to protect Isis and her baby son Horus when they flee into the Delta to escape Seth. Seth killed Osiris, husband of Isis, and wished to make Isis his own.

In addition, all people would ask for Serqet's protection against venomous creatures. In the Pyramid Texts she is called mother of the snake deity Nehebkau, who protected Pharaoh from snakes.
Serqet was associated with the scorching heat of the sun and thus was considered the daughter of Ra, the Egyptian sun god. In the Book of the Dead, the dead person identifies with her, saying: "I am that Scorpion-goddess, the daughter of Ra" (Chapter 86).

The barque of Ra was believed to travel a perilous journey through the underworld each night. In some representations, Serqet is shown on the barque protecting her father, particularly by fighting the Apep serpent (Apophis), who represents totally evil chaos.

Thank you very much Laura Ann! What you posted was a gift and very much appreciated! When I was a young person (scorpions were common where I lived in Eastern Washington state) I use to love and play with scorpions a lot (and western diamondback rattlesnakes and black widow spiders). That was back before I knew about Selket and my past life history. Love, Sunny
