REVIEW FROM CARDSY B.
OF THE HEX AND THE CITY PODCAST
REVIEWS

AUDRA H., AUSTIN, TX

“I feel as if I have found the "cheat code" to this life! It's Totem! I have met with Rachel twice now - for a Totem Card Reading and a Mediumship Session. I was always highly skeptical of mediums and wanted to make sure I found someone who made me feel comfortable. After reading Rachel's reviews and checking out her impressive website, I decided to make my first appointment. My Totem reading was completely aligned to my current goals and questions about my future. She offered practical advice and I walked away incredibly impressed. I then decided to try out a mediumship session I am SO glad I did! I won't go into too much detail but Rachel is the REAL DEAL. I was able to hear from ancestors who have been looking out for me my entire life! If you make an appointment with Rachel, you will not be disappointed! She is incredible!”

 

KIMBERLY S., AUSTIN, TX

“I recently did a tarot reading with Rachel in Austin. I absolutely loved the experience. Rachel is direct, no BS, and did an amazing job explaining what the cards meant, rough timelines, etc.

 

My favorite part was that her direct and humorous nature made it feel less “woo-woo” and more matter-of-fact. I’ll definitely be getting another reading later this year!”

 

ALISA P., CHICAGO, IL

“Totem…. And Rachel White…Honestly, I’m not even sure I have the right words for my experience with the energy work I’ve received, the energy of the Totem tarot deck and the workshops I’ve attended with Rachel. But in a way of trying, I will tell you that I am not easily swooned just because someone has a gift. Rachel has become my go-to shaman.  She’s a no fluff, to the point human who translates what the other realms have to offer to give insight and guidance for us humans here doing this ‘life’ thing. Her intellectual side strengthens the gifts she has been given to deliver an experience that I will continue to go back for. I have guided a lot of people to her and the feedback is always as strong as my own. Just try. I can’t imagine you wouldn’t agree with me.”

MARY B., CHICAGO, IL

“I met Rachel when she hosted a shamanic journey session and immediately appreciated her straight forward, practical approach. And I trusted her instantly, and if you have engaged with people in the medium/psychic/energy/pick your word space trust is a big deal. When she offered the spiritual coaching opportunity I knew I had to sign up. And I am not a signer upper by nature, but it was loud and clear that I should commit to this work, and do it with Rachel. My energy and spiritual life immediately started to elevate, even before I started the program. If you have been looking for a spiritual 'home' to bring more of your intuitive skills into your life Rachel is that guide. As I told Rachel recently, being coached by her, and feeling the strength from the other people in the cohort, has given me the courage to be who I really am - and not be intimidated by the 'theater of man'. This work is elemental, and beyond important for our world. The universe needs your energy to be at its highest level and Rachel can get you there.”

 

SAMANTHA G., CHICAGO, IL

“I saw Rachel for the first time in 2018, after reading glowing reviews about her process, honesty, and commitment to the energetic process. After that first session, she'd told me I wouldn't need to return for a while. Fast forward to 2021: I wanted to come back, and I'm just as grateful and impressed as I was in 2018. Even with a remote session (as TOTEM has moved to Austin), Rachel is not only talented, but her pragmatic approach, compassion and thoroughness are noteworthy. I would recommend her to anyone, anytime. You will come away with a deep sense of gratitude, and very clear information.”

KATE W., PORTSMOUTH, NH

“Rachel is incredible. I recently had my first Tarot reading with her, and was amazed at what a powerful, helpful, insightful yet practical session it was. Rachel is warm, kind, funny, honest, and actually says real things (no statements that are so vague to the point of being insipid.) I was new to Tarot, so I appreciated her ability to explain everything in layman's terms and help me understand how it applied to me.

 

I walked away with a strong sense of what next steps I should take to best serve the goals and concerns I came to her with.”

JENNIFER J., FAIRFAX, VA

“Rachel is THE REAL DEAL!  I have had a tarot reading and I recently had a very insightful while simultaneously entertaining channeling session with her.  Poseidon is a powerful and funny guy too!!  She's honest. She's fun. She's grounded. She calls it as she sees it.  She's resourceful and willing to help you along your journey in whatever way she can. Authentically intuitive connected.  I feel so grateful that I found her.  Thank you, Rachel!”

JABARI D., CA

"What an amazing experience with Totem readings. Rachel is both amazing and legit. She read for both myself and my daughter and it made our Chicago trip! What a great experience to have in you're in Chicago, or just visiting. The energy Rachel has, along with her ability to connect with your story, coupled with her own Tarot deck that she curated and created herself, made our readings very life changing and so relevant to our own unique journeys. Also her space is very inviting and comforting, and the neighborhood her office is in, is great for a coffee or lunch after your reading. I'll definitely be back in the future for another reading."

SHELLY G- CHICAGO, IL

"Need a secret weapon? Rachel is your girl! Wildly perceptive and fiercely intuitive - her sessions always give me a tremendous sense of empowerment to make the best possible choices. I have been incredibly lucky to know Rachel for a few years now, and over time her killer insights have kept me moving forward, helped me develop my intuition, and most importantly, helped me to learn to trust myself.

 

What I love about Rachel is how humble, kind, (and hilarious!) she is. A true expert at her craft - she has the sensitivity of a healer, yet the skills of a true master. Between us - she could triple her rates and she would be worth every single penny and then some.

 

Her new space is also a total dream. From the practical side - parking is so easy. On the energetic side - You will instantly feel at ease as soon as you enter - it is impossible not to feel "home" the energy in the space is so wonderful. I felt pure joy just being in her space that you can tell she so thoughtfully created. I know you too will feel that sense of delight being there - it is the best to get to be in her spiritual tree house!

 

If you are thinking about booking a session with Rachel I have two words for you: DO IT! She's the real deal."

DEANNA S., CHICAGO, IL

"Rachel is absolutely amazing! She is probably the most knowledgeable person I have ever met in my life. She was able to connect with my spirit guides and give me clarity on my past and upcoming relationships. Her knowledge of spirit guides and totems is beyond impressive and I was so excited to hear from mine! I also did the Beyond your Sun Sign Astrology Workshop at Totem with Tamara. Also, totally mind blowing. This workshop gave me so much insight into who I am, my beliefs, my past, and my career. She was SPOT ON for everything! I highly recommend any service or workshop Totem has to offer! You will not regret it! These are once in a lifetime experiences!"

BRITTANY K., CHICAGO, IL

"Rachel was so amazing and informative. This was my first reading and I had no clue what to expect... she blew me away. She tapped into things that made so much sense and were so personal to my life. She has high energy and welcoming presence that makes you feel excited and comfortable right away. I would recommend her, and already have, to anyone and everyone. She left me with many recommendations that I can apply to my life. I loved the entire experience!"

 

ALEYAH S., CALIFORNIA

“Rachel is such a gift. If you are looking for an enlightened soul to hold your hand safely through the shadows, and bring you into the light, then please schedule a session with her. Her grounded approach to spiritual transformation is much needed in this world!”

ROGER O., CHICAGO, IL

“I always enjoy working with different practitioners to learn about their gifts and how energy moves and works with us all. That being said, Rachel is one of those that have left a significant impression along the way. Readings with Rachel are always on target and cut to the heart of what's happening. She spares me the bullshit that can sometimes surface in this type of work. To me, it seems that Rachel is bringing her full capabilities to the table. This includes both light and dark. Power and vulnerability. She has a unique way interpreting the signs and symbols that emerge, and doesn't waste time or energy digging into that rich territory. We all know the "real deal" when we experience it. That's what puts Rachel on a pretty short go-to list for me.”

JENN D., CHICAGO, IL

“I've been working with Rachel for over a decade. Every time I do I gain amazing clarity and insight. I recently went to hear new Oak Park studio and it's truly a sanctuary! Thank you Rachel for sharing your amazing gifts with the world and me :)”

 

BRIEANNE A., SAN FRANCISCO, CA

“Rachel is amazing! I started seeing her in 2015 when my life was less than ideal. She did a tarot reading that was incredibly spot-on and that I continued to look back on and say, "Wow! She said this would happen, unbelievable!" After that first appointment, I started to join her shamanic journeying workshops where I traveled to the stars, was greeted by spirit guides, ran into (and sometimes from) totem animals, and woke up feeling energized and carrying more knowledge than I did when I entered. Rachel has also done mediumship readings for me where I was able to connect to family members long passed. I even verified some of these members with my parents afterwards and they were stunned that they made an appearance!

Over the summer, I was able to get some remote energy work done during this Quarantine which was much-needed! She was able to tap into some current struggles I was having and, most importantly, provide resources that would be able to assist me further in my healing process. This reading, along with the previous ones, helped me gain further clarity on my life. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a way to further delve into their spirituality, to answer any pressing questions or heck, just to have someone kindly and humorously guide you to the next chapter in your life. She will live up to your expectations!”

 

ERIN C., NORTHFIELD, IL

“I first have to say that it's not easy to find and connect with TRUE spiritual practicioners that you can trust. There are many people out there that say they have supernatural, spiritual powers but whether or not they use those powers to actually SERVE your highest good is questionable. Rachel is THE REAL DEAL!

A friend of mine recommended Rachel to me a few years ago. Well, that tarot reading was more informative than many things had been in my life to that point. I have continued to see Rachel, for a past life reading, energy work and am always amazed and impressed by her wisdom, knowledge and access to the other dimensions. If you are interested in this kind of work and raising your vibration, Rachel is a must to experience!”

 

LAURIE C. LAUREL, MD

“To say working with Rachel was an enlightening experience would be such an understatement.   She had insights that were spot on and SPECIFIC.  I left my session with her feeling truly buzzy--my energy could have lit a small city!   Rachel is as authentic as anyone could be--it feels like you've known her your whole life.   I'm looking forward to employing some of her suggestions to help "clear my head" and allow abundance to come to me.   Don't miss an opportunity to connect with Rachel!”

“I purchased a channeled session with Rachel and it was so helpful and validating! I wasn’t looking for someone to feed into delusions, I needed the truth! I really appreciate Rachel’s genuine, honest readings. I left feeling hopeful and inspired which is always a telltale sign that the reading was for my highest good.”

JENNIFER

“Rachel is an amazing, modern day skeptical shaman. She’s the real deal with a great sense of humor. I have been fortunate enough not only to be able to experience her readings/channeling, but also to have trained with her spiritually and intuitively. Her flower essences are so special because she hand curates them with love and intention from seed to harvest and brews them into magickal potions for specific spiritual needs. It is always my honor and privilege to recommend her without hesitation for any of your spiritual needs. Disclaimer: She’s not one of the phony cult people who claim to be shaman taking advantage of emotional vulnerability and who will tell you all the things you want to hear (Sorry-I rant bc I despise them- Beware of those people) Be prepared for the honest truth. Rachel is authentic. Don’t wait!” 
 

MICHELLE
“I recently had a remote Energy Session with Rachel, which was my first experience with any sort of energy work (let alone over zoom), so I was not sure what to expect at all. I’m still not exactly sure what to say- other than it was a little bit mind-blowing, and I’m so glad I decided to go for it! Rachel is the real deal and she had so much insight for me after our session, some of
which I did not even realize the significance of until a few days later. I’ll say it again: mind- blowing! I’m still in the process of implementing everything we talked about but some unexpected improvements have already occurred. Highly recommended!” 

 

LAURA O.
“I'm so thrilled to have found Rachel White and TOTEM. I absolutely love her TOTEM tarot deck. With such beautiful artwork, non-traditional yet deep and informed imagery and language - it's my go-to deck. It's so tricky with this type of work to find someone who is knowledgeable, sincere, non-judgmental, while encouraging open and skeptical conversation. My experience
with Rachel is that she encompasses all of this and a genuine encouragement to trust one's intuition. Thank you!” 

 

GINA C.

“Rachel's pragmatic approach to spirituality has been invaluable for me over the past 6 years. What started out as a blind tarot reading at a tumultuous time in my professional life evolved into a journey on which I'm still receiving incredible guidance from Rachel. Whether you're in need of a reading, mentorship or other types of healing modalities, Rachel can be trusted to assist or point you in a beneficial direction. As someone who has encountered the opposite in some spiritual communities, her integrity is bar none. Her podcast provides a wealth of knowledge and welcomes diverse perspectives--definitely check it out. Thank you for all that you do, Rachel!”

BRIEANNE

“Rachel is amazing! I have been seeking out her brilliant services since 2015. Thus far, I have gone to her for tarot readings, energy adjustments, a virtual reiki session, and many group journeying sessions. Her intuition constantly blows me away and her sense of humor when delivering her insights makes it even more enjoyable!

I was very excited when she came out with her flower essences. I absolutely love them! I am particularly drawn to Thug Rose and Orange Glow and feel the difference between days when I "drop" and days that I don't! She also has a gorgeous totem tarot deck that is darkly beautiful and which I use when I want to tap into my own intuition. The artwork is breathtaking and I love
showing this deck off to my other witchy friends.”

 

KATE
“I have worked with Rachel for several years now as a client in her coaching program and her tarot readings. She is so practical, direct, and funny - she gives actionable, profound insights that you can action off of. You feel like you are talking to a real person who lives in the real world who says real things. She is able to thoughtfully nudge you to think bigger for yourself, and is incredibly psychic. I have made big strides in my life and changing patterns through my
work with her."

 

GINA

“Rachel is so much more than a gifted reader and shaman. Her practical approach lends to real- world, grounded spiritual application and sets her apart from many readers I've worked with. More than anything, I appreciate her down-to-earth demeanor and transparency. Her podcast incorporates diverse views and is extremely informative. Thanks for doing what you do, Rachel!”

 

KAREN
“Rachel is authentic and tuned into her guides and energy as she provided a most relevant Ancient Rune Reading. I love how she endured a basic understanding prior to beginning. I highly recommend a reading with Rachel if you’re seeking input for this life’s journey, not answers
rather heart centered wisdom that touches the soul of your question.” 

BONNIE

 “I just had my first tarot reading with Rachel in November and I was completely blown away by her insights. 2022 has been a year of huge changes in my life and not only was Rachel able to interpret the transformations I’ve been undergoing, but she also confirmed the decisions I made were for my highest good. Her advice was straightforward, pragmatic, and actionable. After the reading, I was finally able to take a deep breath and start making plans for the next chapter of my life knowing I’m moving in the right direction. As I wind down the year, I’ve been focusing more on self-care and I’ve just started working with her flower essences, Newly Minted, Rain Maker, Suit of Armor, Lucid Dreams, Black Mirror. Each day I feel my energy shift a little bit
more to align with the changes I’m making in my life.”

ANDREA J.

“I had a Tarot session with Rachel back in February. Helpful tip - take notes! She was so thorough and flooded me with so much information; it was terrific. We even ended up chatting for a few minutes after the session. She is serious and knowledgeable about her practice but also non-judgemental. I enjoyed our session and conversation afterward immensely.” 

 

COLLEEN S.
“I recently received a flower essence from Totem. After having an intuitive herbalism session with Rachel, she formulated a custom blend for my needs. I mentioned in our session that I was feeling disconnected from magic, from nature, from the spiritual realm. After taking her blend for several days in a row, my ability to lucid dream has returned. The dream space has lit up for

me, which I had forgotten all about. I forgot how connected I feel to the ethereal realm when I am in the dream state. I highly recommend Totem''s products, they are potent and made with powerful intentions. A little bit goes a long way.” 

 

ASHLEY D.
“I had an Akashic Records Reading with Rachel 4 days ago and I am so blown away. The information she pulled through for me was very specific. Rachel answered all of the questions I had for her and provided more that I didn't even know I needed. The symbols and details from my reading have resonated even more over the last few days as I dive deeper into uncovering their meaning. This was not the run of the mill reading. I think I will be uncovering layers of depth for days and weeks to come. I can't recommend her enough. Also, her flower essence tinctures are amazing- highly recommend.” 

 

TRICIA T.
“Rachel is one of a kind and one of the most spiritual and enlightening people I've ever met, her ratings are amazing and her guidance and approach to life inspiring.” 

 

MARIKO S.

“Rachel is genuine no bs. She only reads what is in front of her and takes a strong ethical approach. I am also a business coaching client which has started opening me up in new ways to not only protect myself energetically but also guide me through my next phase in my journey. I would highly recommend her services in anything you may be drawn to.” 
 

HANNAH S.

“I have done a few readings with Rachel and she is amazing! She is professional, brilliant, and ethical -- the real deal. I have enjoyed and benefited from each of my sessions. Check her out (and her next level Totem botanical tinctures!) and see for yourself!”

 

LINDA N.
“In the spiritual enlightenment space, seemingly intoxicated by love and light, Rachel White is the bad ass antidote: inordinately brilliant, wildly creative, exceptionally curious. Hers is a no- nonsense approach whether she's channeling or partnering with nature to create her extraordinarily powerful flower essences. Rachel's deep commitment to her work, her craft and her art, serve as invitation and catalyst for one's own deep exploration of cellular bad ass knowing. And right now, the planet needs a little more bad ass on her love and light.” 

 

SUZY
“One of my best readings. In addition to the card pull, Rachel gave some steps to work with the results and made it a two-way conversation to tie it all together. She was very thorough and spent the full 45 minutes with me. Recommend!” 

 

MARIANA
“Rachel is very professional and she values her customers. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a real shaman.”
