What is a Totem?

A Totem is an object or symbol believed to contain power.
They have spiritual importance by a person or people;
often worn as tokens, talismans, or icons.

This work is customized to exactly what you want in your reality.
An energy, idea, or philosophy you need harnessed and anchored into your life.
They are the focus of your absolute success in whatever you set your self to.

What will these Totems do for you?

That’s up to you.

I can’t explain how they will work for you because perception is the bottom line.
They may simply be visual icons that represent your values and beliefs.
Or they are the energetic focal point for your greatest ambitions.

I can tell you about the science. I can tell you about the mysticism and mythography.
I can show you what my clients experience…

But in the end, it’s your choice.

How are Totems made?

The literal answer is the simplest one.

Winter Wolf Totems are made with conflict free gems, clean metals, and natural or low toxicity processes.

I’ve been a professional craftsman since 2009.
My life is driven around the need to explore, perfect, optimize, and apply.
This is what you get with these Totems.

Winter Wolf Totems are primarily made with sterling silver, 14k rose, and 14k green gold.

some are made with Japanese and custom alloys as well.

Ancient processes.
Traditional methods.
Primitive techniques.
3D computer modeling.
Advanced technology.

All of these are present in this work.

The priority is in the energy, story, and concept of the work.
The materials and process are there to support that objective.

What About the Energetic side?

Once the Totem is complete, I bring them into a natural place to clear the stress, sending it with energy aligned to our conversations.

A personal ritual to set the tone.
This is simple and powerful.

Natural spaces, quiet places; always with a river or lake.
I get settled and visualize the feeling of the intentions for your totem.
This collects the power of the concepts into the piece,
So that design and intention are aligned.

Once infused, it goes into the water and onto a rock to settle.

A sort of baptism and celebration.

A bit of Science

Being a Metaphyst, blending different fields of wisdom is the central theme of my life.
I often joke that I am scientific Merlin; the most skeptical Wizard you’ll ever meet.

I am always looking to find multiple angles of access.
Thus, science has played a major role in refining what I do.

The simple version:

Powerful objects create a resonance. Just like family heirlooms and very personal gifts, they carry a charge for us. This impacts us a number of ways, and the research on how powerfully is amazing.

The Mysterious Power of Believing 

What was once considered a no-effect baseline for medical tests and considered inconsequential is rapidly becoming one of the most significant studies in medicine and biopsychology. It turns out that the mind plays an extremely powerful role in the physical function of the body. We can directly impact our health with thought and emotion alone.

In this way, these Totems serve as a physical bookmark for a metaphysical idea, allowing your mind to do the work. Consider it a seed carrying a quality you desire, planted every time you wear your Totem.

Your Brain Rebuilds Itself Daily

Said plainly, this is the way in which your brain actually changes it’s physical structure to allow you quicker access to a feeling, mood, or idea. Your brain will literally rebuild itself when faced with repeat exposure to something.

With these power objects, you have a daily reminder that will convince your brain to rewire itself however you choose. Over time your Totem will become a symbol of your strength as your body and mind becomes what you desire.

What You Expect will Manifest in Your Life

Similar to Placebo, this is the effect of mindset on experience. While both are parts of psychology, Placebo touches biology while expectation connects to philosophy.

Studies show that what we expect actually changes our subjective experience of the world around us AND the results we achieve in our daily life. We can literally manifest the exact reality we want by believing it is true.

This comes with obvious risks of self deception.

Your Totem will serve as a trigger for this process. Some Guardians choose to only wear theirs on special days to enhance the potency of the effect, while others wear them as a constant reminder.

The Magic Inside

Ritual Builds Power in Your Life
Metaphysics, esoterics, ritual, energy work, mythology.

You name it, I’ve studied it.

This began in 2002 and has continued ever since.
The designs, concepts, and symbolism in these Totems draws from that expertise;
not only in culture and symbolism but in energy work and ritual process.

Energy In the Story

Each piece is designed to mirror and contain the energy that it holds.
A physical expression of the intangible.

Every surfaces, line, and form support this expression with no distraction.
In a way, these Totems design themselves. I’m just the maker.

And there’s a history to this process.

Since humankind was capable of understanding the non-physical, and communicate it,
we’ve delved into story telling as a way of capturing what we feel.

This work contains that which feels most potent.

Power is Stored in the Totem

The result is the powerful items you see here, and the amazing stories of their Guardians.

Once the item is infused, it acts as a sort of battery.

In one way it is a direct conduit. The object contains that power, and you have full access.

The second is via resonance. Wearing the object, remembering the symbolism, seeing the designs;
this creates a resonance between the meta energy contained and that which you generate in your own body.

Literally “reminding” you of what you can do.
