Personal Totem Pole

The Personal Totem Pole©:

Unleash the Power of Your Chakra Guides


We are all Divine beings.  Whether you think of Divine Nature as spirit, or soul or authentic Self, our Divine Nature enlivens us. It holds within our own personal truth.  It connects us with the Great Oneness and with all the wisdom and power and beauty we could ever need.  The Personal Totem Pole© creates a rich, vibrant and dependable connection with our Divine Nature.

 The Value of Intuition

Our Divine Nature speaks to us through intuition. Intuition can come as a hunch, or a gut feeling or a sudden sense of clarity that brings certainty and relief.

The problem comes when we ignore or dismiss our intuition.  This is easy to do because from our earliest childhood, we have not been encouraged to trust our own inner truth. As children we were taught that everyone else – our parents, our teachers, our elders – knew what’s best. As adults we continue to look for guidance outside ourselves – from the media, the internet and experts.

This can lead to confusion and frustration. Much of the advice we find out there is contradictory, or it just doesn’t fit for us.  We waste a lot of time and energy when we pursue something that isn’t right for us simply because someone else told us it’s what we needed to become rich, loved, successful – whatever.


Here’s the great news!

    • We can reclaim our authority and our authenticity.
    • We can reconnect with our Divine Nature and benefit from the wisdom and power we receive to find our own answers.
    • We can free ourselves to create our experience through the choices we make – choices informed by our authentic Self.


Here’s more good news.

We don’t need to wait for intuition to appear spontaneously.

We can learn to develop our intuitive power

and dependably communicate with our Divine Nature.


The Personal Totem Pole© Process provides a powerful tool to dependably connect with our Divine Nature.  We invite an image to emerge from each of the seven Chakras in turn.  These images become our Guides.

As we develop a relationship with each of our Chakra Guides we discover:

    • Fresh perspective – when we look at our life in new ways, opportunities and possibilities open up, empowering us to deal effectively with even the most challenging situations
    • Unsuspected strengths to accomplish what we could not do before
    • The blessing of unconditional love and acceptance to transform our relationships with self and others
    • The joy of knowing that, as part of the great Oneness, we are never alone
    • Confidence that blossoms as we discover that the strength, wisdom and support we need can be found within


Our Guides often take the form of Animals.  Animals so precisely express the infinite qualities available to us – a Bear suggests power, a Dolphin joy and playfulness, an Eagle the ability to soar and view life below from a vast perspective.

By interacting with these images, we enter into an intimate and satisfying relationship with our Divine Nature.

When we take action based on the wisdom and guidance we receive, we step into our rightful role as the conscious creator of our own experience.

I excel at my job in sales, but I don’t love it.  If fact, I don’t even like it. Since I can remember, I’ve always dreamed of being a writer, but I lacked the courage to pursue that dream – until I discovered the power of my Chakra Guides by working with Qatana.

Connecting with my Personal Totem Pole© gave me the belief in myself that empowered me to apply to – and get accepted by – a top notch writing program at a nearby university.  I was so proud and excited when, out of over five hundred applicants, I was one of only thirty people accepted into the program!

My excellent performance in the program has built my confidence. Now, the three hours I devote to my writing every day gives me joy – and the certainty that I will soon be able to leave my job and support myself with my writing.

I am much happier at work, knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  In the past I could have been overwhelmed with so many things to do, but I remain calm by focusing on one thing at a time.  I’m actually more effective and efficient than I’ve been at any time in my life.

Thank you, Qatana.  I have never been so enthusiastic.  Discovering my Personal Totem Pole© has empowered me to go for my dream and that has transformed my life.


When Qatana first suggested the Personal Totem Pole©, I will admit to a bit of skepticism.  Fortunately, however, my confidence in her expertise, based on months of more “traditional” counseling, overcame my initial concerns.

Through Qatana’s guidance with my Chakra Guides, I have come to terms with my childhood and improved my rather challenging relationship with my mother.  My creativity has blossomed as I have come to a better appreciation of its importance in my life.  I have learned to understand and accept my own emotions and to express them more appropriately.

Qatana has provided a safe environment and expert encouragement to lead me to immediate insights as well as helping me recognize resources I can rely upon in the future.



After 16 years as a successful massage therapist, I was eager to explore my earlier interest in art, but I was so paralyzed by indecision that every day passed without an attempt to get out there and paint.

I felt a great sense of exhilaration and promise after my first session with the Personal Totem Pole©.  The initial results were gratifying, and provided relief from the indecision. I was able to ‘get traction’ immediately, and continued to work with more ease.

My life has been hugely impacted by my ongoing work with my Chakra Guides. I have built an inner reservoir of skills and behavior to support me in my creative process.  I have developed strategies for solving resistance and blocks that I may encounter on the way. I have more compassion toward myself and others as a result of this work, and remain convinced that the skills I learned will be utilized to go further with my art.

As a result of my sessions with Qatana I have been able to approach a gallery and have been invited to sell my work there.  I have received several offers to buy my work! I made contacts in the art marketing community and found like-minded individuals whose aspirations are parallel with mine. I entered several juried shows, and exhibited at a local community art center.

I can now advise others that the Personal Totem Pole Process© is an important tool to build self-confidence, endurance, commitment and strength.
