One of our slogans here at Totem Tamers, is “Calm in your Palm.” We like it of course, because it’s simple and to the point, and basically lets you know that when you hold a Totem in your palm, you are taking the steps towards being calm. It’s a process for sure, but the tactile sensation of holding a bronze Totem, or a squishy ball, or silly putty, or whatever, is definitely key to grounding oneself, if in a state of anxiety or stress.
Shark is one of our Totems, and the smoothness of the underside of Shark, matched with the pointy (not sharp) fins, allow for varied texture, and awesome touch sensations. I’m focusing on Shark because there’s a story out today about a similar sized sea creature that’s also doing an amazing job at helping people.
The Lucky Iron Fish, is helping people in Cambodia, many of whom are iron deficient. It’s quite brilliant actually, and kudos to the inventors who found a simple way to get this community to add more iron to their diets! The Lucky Iron Fish actually just won great honors at an expo in Cannes, and being modeled after a fish, Shark felt an affinity and wanted to share this amazing story. You can help this project by making a donation, and you can help yourself by getting a Totem! Just click on any of the Totems on the page and get yours today.
