Virus Totem

“Virus Totem” – Webpage


“I created this website so that you can explore the magical world of Animal Symbolism, Spirit Animals as messengers, Animal Totems, and dreams. There are currently more than 170 Animals (and growing) on this website.  We have set this site up to make it easy for you to get a message from one of your Spirit Animal guides or one of the other beautiful animals on this site. Simply center yourself and get grounded.

As we all journey through this lifetime the Universe sends us signals and signs to help us along our way. Contrary to what most of us believe, this journey is all about growth, and how much love and kindness we can spread, rather than how well we can do for ourselves. The Universe has sent us yet another message with the Covid 19 virus. For each of us the message will be different, but we can all learn something. This page is all about the Virus Totem, its essence, presence, and significance. It includes unique and individualized messages in the quotation box. You can also further your understanding by clicking on the “Get Message” tab in the menu.

I specialize in still life, sensual figurative and occasionally fetish photography. My career started with the need to find a way to photograph the vision of my husband’s sculpture without losing the connection of his work with the viewer. Eventually I started exploring Photoshop through building the occasional digital photo montage.

Currently my focus is on my website Spirit Animals which combines my writings skills with my intuitive and psychic abilities in order to provide a place for others to find answers. My creativity is also expressed through my leather craft and a highly successful career as a whipmaker. My fascination with whips – especially the Indiana Jones style Bullwhips was highlighted with a lifelong passion for horses. There is not an area of the horse industry that I have not explored in some shape or form in the past. The photography – although taking a backseat – still serves me well as it helps me produce excellent photographs of my whip creations, as well as my husband Michael Hermesh’s artwork.
