Shamanic Healing

HealingFrom a shamanic point of view, the source of all things is Spirit. In a healing, the Shaman journeys to the source of the illness or disharmony in the spirit realm and effects a change there so that healing can occur here. This means bringing energy back from the spirit world to put it where it belongs in the physical world, or removing energy from the physical world and returning it to where it belongs in the spirit world. The energy retrieved from the spirit world may be a lost soul part, a power animal or helping spirit, or information. The energy removed may originate in harmful behaviour patterns, intrude from the environment or others, or may be residual energy from past trauma. Shamanic healing is often used in conjunction with other healing modalities. It is intended to enhance, not replace, conventional health care.

For people who experience chronic mental, physical, or emotional pain, depression, or addictions, shamanic healing can be a means to reach the source of the pain in spirit and release that pattern of suffering from your life. To truly heal we must include all four levels of the human experience in this process and bring balance to the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual energies. The core practices have changed very little and modern Shaman use much of the same processes and tools as our ancestors thousands of years ago. Shamanic healing is a way to repair deep soul traumas without re-traumatizing yourself or giving up your power to a healer. It is a path for reclaiming your power, and for restoring joy and meaning to your life.

Shamanic healing process may include:

  • Helping Spirit Retrieval - to find and connect with your own spiritual ally and guide.
  • Soul Retrieval - to return and reintegrate parts of your soul that were separated, usually due to trauma, so that you can move forward Whole.
  • Extraction - to remove intrusive energies that may be blocking you.
  • Depossession - to remove possessing entities, which can create any number of problems, and assist them to complete their journey.
  • Psychopomp - to assist the dead who may be trapped between the realms and create disharmony in your life.
  • Ancestral healing - to resolve the dysfunctional patterns passed down to you by your ancestors.
  • Curse unravelling - to trace intentional and unintentional curses and harmful thoughtforms back to their origins and dissolve them for all involved.
