The Power Of Your Totems

CLICK HERE for a FREE psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comThose of us who are metaphysically inclined often believe in the power of carrying a sacred object, symbolic item, or ‘totem.’ The totem is worn or kept on one’s person for various purposes, including healing, protection, guidance, or support.

This spiritual practice is known as Totemism. It is a system of belief in which humans are said to have a mystical relationship or kinship with a spirit-being, such as an animal, plant or symbolic object.

Believing in the power of a ‘totem helper’ gives one the kind of spiritual self-confidence that can make the difference between success and failure. Actually, I wear on my person a medicine bag in the Native American tradition, which contains various totems or ‘alliances’ I have found in nature.

Some of them were gifted to me, because they resonated with my energetic frequency and “wanted to be with me,” as friends and fellow metaphysicians have stated through the years. It is our custom to save special things of this nature for gifting to each other, especially at sacred times of the year, such as when we celebrate the solstices.

Right now, I am surrounded by all of these charming personal offerings. There are the great horned owl feathers that were gifted to me, for example. I used it to make a prayer stick, that I now make use of during meditation, and sometimes also as an altar piece. In the tradition of Totemism, I consider it to be part of a living being, which is the altar. Indeed, every altar has its own ‘being-ness,’ the same as any other sacred deity.

Furthermore, my precious alliances are placed in sacred bundles, that I carry in my shoulder bag. I also keep a bundle in my car, as well as another bundle in my luggage, for when I travel. There are almost as many applications and purposes as there are totems.

I alternate them regularly, and freshen the sage in each use, when I feel the need to recharge my connection with an alliance. As I change frequencies, I need to keep all my helpers in tune with the constantly growing and changing me. We are not static beings. We’re growing all the time, whether we pursue growth, or not. It is part of the process of life and one of the reasons we reincarnate, as challenging as it is!

Although no object or item has any more power than what we grant it, it is beautiful to feel the energy of these sweet resonances; to hear their messages; and to receive the blessing of their protection. Literally, I feel a sense of powerlessness when I don’t have my totems close by! I depend on them for my sense of balance with the Universe. They assist me in my readings for my clients, and set my own path through the synchronicity they share with me.

If you would like to discover your own totem, look around you as if you are a stranger in your everyday surroundings. What indications are present? Generally, we have only one major totem, but others come to help when we need further assistance. What seems to be the main theme in your environment? Think of the process as a magical inventory investigation.

Perhaps you have a collection of turtle shells that you have never thought of as being an indication of how you resonate in the world, as an empathic healer, for example. But, because they resonate for you they have become a part of you energetically – a part that you would miss if they weren’t with you. Also, turtles are symbolic of healing and can be symbolic of a new path emerging for you.

A rock or mineral collection may indicate a relationship with the chakras, or other realms to be explored. Sit with the talisman, whatever it is, and ask of it what it has to tell or show you. Then, listen closely. You may be surprised at what it has to say.

We are all but symbols of some greater thing – totems of ourselves – subject to change and growth. When we forget that metaphoric sense of ourselves, we lose sight of the overall path ~ S. Kelley Harrell

Once you have discovered it, you must wholeheartedly believe in the power of your totem. This practice brings optimism and even joy, as you share your being-ness with your newfound spiritual charm. Your energy vibration raises to a higher frequency and your powers are increased exponentially, whether you use them in your work, your personal life, or both.

The unseen world operates along powerful energy lines, determined by forces we’re only beginning to understand. The natives, however, have understood this precious phenomenon for eons, because they have embraced the secret behind why a totem works. They believe a thought is a prayer and, indeed, it is. A prayer has a high frequency and transmits the thought on the airwaves, energetically creating the process the ancients were so familiar with – the alchemy of magic.

Did you know that smiling, even when you don’t feel like it, actually begins to change blood chemistry and improves the immune system? The increase in your optimism and the consequent higher vibrations are then embedded in your totem and other items around you. These embedded items is one of the ways how psychics pick up information.

Last, but not least, remember to honor and thank your totem. Gratitude increases its power, and strengthens the relationship between you, that together you have manifested. Indeed, your sweet totem has earned your thanks!
