Is Shamanic Healing For You

Is Shamanic Healing Right For Me?

Shamanic healing is different then healing that we are accustomed to in today's modern world.  Shaman's have the unique ability to journey into the spirit realm, and return with the knowledge, experience and understanding to heal those in need.

This healing can be in various different forms- but works strongly with the mind and body to find balance and equilibrium.  Shamans are unique from psychics or mediums because we are able to journey directly into the spirit realm, and see and feel everything in that realm- where as a medium channels spirit through their spirit guides or by what spirit is directly around them.

When I journey into the Spirit realm, I am working with all Spirit. I see and understand that all living beings have a Spirit or a soul, and can bring us sickness, and can also bring us medicine to help us combat sickness. We already practice using the spirits of plants and animals; we do this when we sage our homes (cleansing the air- as sage has been proven to remove 94% of airborne bacteria) or when we use various other essential oils such as lavender, eucalyptus, frankincense or lemon- which have been proven to assist in various remedies such as skin infection, calming, stress reduction or cleansing. Below are some examples as to what we can encounter in a healing session. I can not tell you what is going to happen in your session until I am in trance focusing on you, but below are some common examples of what I see in most people.

Shamanic Journeys

A Shaman isn't going to just tell you the answer for any of your life's problems. We will however show you what we see when we journey and help you make your own self discoveries.

We begin your session by cleansing your body and chakras. Once we are in a calm meditative state, we will begin our journey into the spirit realm. The creepy/beautiful aspect of this healing is that I am able to see and feel everything that you are feeling/seeing and can help guide you to where you need to be.

What we discover in the spirit realm can vary from person to person, but typically my clients journey with me for a soul retrieval.

Soul Retrieval

Once we are in the spirit realm, we can easily find parts of our souls that have been removed from ourselves. These shadows, or soul shards come forward to us when you are ready to address or deal with this trauma. We talk it out, visit with past you and discover what you need to do regarding your situation.

This is almost always an emotional interaction and can vary from person to person- it all depends on our personalities and how we process emotions. The important aspect is that we allow our emotions to flow freely from ourselves, and that we understand that we are not our emotions.

After a Shamanic Healing session- you will likely have emotional baggage brought back up to the surface. These issues are going to be related to what we saw when we meditated together, and will likely have been discussed at the end of our appointment.

You can  choose to work through these issues, or leave them buried- but leaving them buried is kind of counter productive to what a Shamanic Healing session is all about.


Spiritual entities can attach to various chakra points in our bodies, creating imbalances, intrusions, and wellness issues within the individual. Extractions are NOT the same as exorcisms, and assist us in processing our shadows and finding balance from within. Extractions allow us to move forward from traumatic events in our lives, and to find true healing.


Messages from Spirit

Often times, we will receive a message or warning from Spirit when we journey into the Spirit Realm. This helps guide us through our paths and understand why something might be happening. This can also help us to better understand ourselves and prevent us from actions we might regret.

Predicting the future is something I don't pay too much attention to- as the future is so sensitive and easy to shift. I instead chose to focus on what we can heal, what we can affect and to help souls live the best lives they can.

How each Shaman is different from each other.

Shamanic healing varies from each Shaman, and you might notice different Shamans performing different rituals, meditations or healing. That is common- just as different religions, ethnicity and demographics have different traditions. It is important that you find a Shaman that resonates with you, and you feel drawn to; as they will be able to guide you and heal you in a way that you need.

Some Shamans might still use tools such as tarot cards, oracle cards, divination such as runes or even astrology or palm reading. Being a Shaman doesn't limit you to only using Shamanic healing, instead it awakens you to connecting on a deeper level then before.

I believe that Shamans are chosen at birth, and being a Shaman isn't something you can will into being. You can be connected to spirit and meditate often; and not be a Shaman.
