What is Shamanic Healing?
Shamanic healing has various techniques that have been passed down for thousands of years. These techniques guide the shaman in locating and extracting the illness. It is a practice that involves a practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness in order to perceive and interact with a spirit world and channel these transcendental energies into this world.
Today, shamans continue to heal through shamanic methods and practices
In the shamanic perspective, true healing, spiritual healing, cannot be done on a physical level. Healing means to return to wholeness, and returning to wholeness is purely an inside job. Spiritual healing addresses the root of the problems that cause dis-ease.
Shamanic Energy Healing works with the Soul. A soul is comprised of divine energy (chi, prana, life force, etc), it is the essence of who that person is without their physical aspect. Below find a brief description of some of the techniques that I may incorporate into a Shamanic Healing session.
The Soul does not speak with words, but with images. A Shamanic Journey is a voyage into the Soul, the land of Soul Speak where we can commune with aspects of ourselves that are in emotional pain. We travel together to listen, to heal, to grow and transform these parts of ourselves for the greater good of all. A Shamanic Journey can be both of us travelling together into your soul energy, or I can go alone and bring back the information for you.
When something traumatizes or frightens someone, their soul can split off, or fragment, into pieces. This is what happens during an out-of-body experience, part of someone’s soul actually leaves their body, and is outside it, watching what is going on. Some people can also experience this during sleeping or dreaming. After the incident is over, most of the fragmented soul pieces return back into the body safe and sound, but other times they do not. This is usually because the soul piece that was lost did not “feel” safe enough to return.
As time passes, people grow and change, and become a better “home” to for these lost soul pieces. During a Shamanic Soul Retrieval, I will go seeking the lost soul part, and bring it back to my client. As part of the journey, integration work is required, to ensure that clients maintain their new, healed energies. There may be additional Shamanic Healing sessions needed in advance of a Soul Retrieval, to “get the house in order”.
Power Animal Retrieval
During times of vulnerability, power animal energy can help you become stronger and more confident. The energy of Eagle can be gifted to help you fly above situations and see what is actually going on. Energy of Bear could be useful if you were going into a meeting where you needed to be able to hold your ground. Each animal has different qualities, a fly is just as powerful as a whale in Shamanic Terms.
During a healing session I may call upon the energy of a Power Animal for my client – the one that is right for them at this time in their life. The energy is a gift and it must be looked after, so after I help bring it into the client’s soul energy, we talk about the meaning of the animal itself, and ways that they can become a caretaker to the energy. All Power Animal Retrievals are gifted and may have hidden meanings that reveal themselves to the client over time.
When someone’s chakras are clear and spinning in a healthy way, they radiate all the colors of the rainbow. It gives their complexion a healthy look, they look much younger than their years, and they feel light in their body. It seems easy to be in the present moment, easy to see the positive side of things and happiness becomes a daily experience.
Cutting of Ties
When people are in relationship they may block each other’s true potential. Sometimes the healthiest thing to do is cut energetic ties. This is a great session to do if you’re leaving a job, moving house, or ending a relationship.
Emotional energy can block chakras, either emotions that are being felt currently, or old ones that have been pushed away and not fully dealt with. You can pick up emotional energy from someone else, from a family member, a work colleague, or someone you don’t even know. The longer the emotional energy has stayed with you, the more crystallized it can become, and the stronger the blockages can be. A Chakra illumination involves removing blocked and stuck energies from your energy field, rebalancing and strengthening your energy anatomy so that you feel stronger, lighter, more balanced and available for life.
Shamanic Extraction is a way to remove old, stuck emotional energy blockages from the energy field. This results in improving the overall natural energy flow of the body. I may work with stones, with the breath, with Aura Soma essence or with crystals. Sometimes I get clients to participate in their healing process so that they recognize what the emotions are, honor them for the life lessons that they brought, and release them with grace and beauty as they no longer serve.
Past Life Healing
If you have any past-life issues that echo in your energy field we can remove them in an Energy Healing session. I look at clearing Karmic debt, vows of suffering, poverty and chastity, fears around specific objects/animals depending on what is needed. Each session is different and unique to the client and the situation
