For this achievement you need 3 totems up at once. You start with a limit of one totem at a time, and casting another just replaces the old one, and the limit is across all totem skills, so to get this you need to up the limit. Here's a list of ways to up the limit, courtesy of the wiki : That link also lists all the types of totems.

Selecting the Ancestral Bond keystone to gain +1 extra totem.
Equipping the Soul Mantle unique armor to gain +1 extra totem.
The Ascendant's Hierophant notable passive +1 extra totem for the totem socketed to your helmet.
The Hierophant's Ritual of Awakening notable passive to gain +2 extra totems.
Equipping the Iron Commander unique bow to gain +1 extra Siege Ballista Totem per 200 Dexterity.
Equipping the Skirmish unique quiver to gain +1 extra attack skill totem.
Equipping the Tukohama's Fortress unique shield to gain +1 extra totem.

So in order to get this achievement you need 2 of these things, which will allow you to place 3 totems. Note that some of them have requirements. Like Hierophant only works if the totem is slotted into a helm, and Iron Commander only ups the limit if you have enough dexterity.

As the wiki states, searing bond is supposed to allow you to go over the limit. I was able to get this with ancestral bond (for a totem limit of 2) and then used searing bond to have a 3rd totem up. Sighris stated he wasn't able to get over the limit with searing bond. After reading a bunch of threads it seems it only works this way with ancestral bond, and the hierophant passive if you put SB in a helm. SB doesn't seem to work with any oft he equipment that boosts the totem limit, and GGG said this is intended.
