Shamanism

Shamanism, deemed to be the oldest healing art on the planet, goes beyond the here and now of who an individual is. In this practice we see both a physical and an energy body. A shamanic practitioner works with the energy body when physical, emotional, and mental distress is at hand. Reasons for such distress can include energy and/or soul loss, intrusion of other energies, or karmic vibrations carried over from past lives.

To retrieve lost energy/soul part(s) a shamanic practitioner travels with their guides and power animals into the individual’s energy body to learn more about the karmic imprint of the person. Upon returning a person’s energy or soul part(s), healing and understanding often happens within, bringing the soul more in touch with the conscious self. Being more aware of who we are and letting go of the distress that was there before a retrieval helps us be more present with ourselves and our surroundings.

What to expect:

Before any hands on work is done, we will discuss your goals, at your comfort level. This first session will take about 1 to 1 1/2 hours and we will decide if shamanism is something that might help you or if other healing modalities should be considered. Please note that your highest good is what we work toward, and it is important that you feel comfortable with the work that I do.

Once we discussed and agreed upon what will be best to go forward with, we will schedule another time to do the shamanic healing. During that session, the client is typically lying down. Depending on the work previously discussed, this session could take between 1 to 2 hours. Client experiences depend on the individual but some of the most common are:

  • relaxation
  • being very present
  • seeing images
  • feeling emotions – in a way of letting go

Clients tend to feel very relaxed and a bit tired after a session. Therefore I do advice my clients to take it easy on themselves afterwards as it allows them to sit with what they’ve experienced. I also recommend that you write everything down, including what was discussed at the end of the session. It could serve as a good reminder later on in your personal journey.
