Shamanism is a spiritual and healing practice that involves connecting with the spiritual realm to access wisdom, guidance, and healing energy. It is one of the oldest forms of spirituality in the world and is still practiced in various forms by many cultures around the globe.
Shamans, who are the practitioners of shamanism, are believed to have the ability to communicate with the spirit world and act as intermediaries between the physical and spiritual realms. They use various techniques such as drumming, chanting, and visualization to enter into altered states of consciousness and connect with the spirits.
Shamanism is often associated with indigenous cultures and is closely tied to the natural world. The practice is based on the belief that everything in the universe, including plants, animals, and even inanimate objects, has a spiritual essence and can be communicated with.
Shamanism is used for a variety of purposes, including healing physical and emotional illnesses, finding guidance and direction in life, and connecting with one's spiritual purpose. It is also used for divination, to communicate with ancestors and other spirits, and to perform rituals and ceremonies.
Today, shamanism is often used as a complementary therapy to traditional Western medicine and psychotherapy, and many people find it helpful for managing stress, anxiety, and other health issues. However, it is important to note that not all practitioners of shamanism are trained or qualified to provide healing services, and it is important to research and choose a reputable practitioner if seeking shamanic healing.
I am a graduate of The Four Winds Society which is an organization that offers rigorous training and certification programs in energy healing and shamanism. Their Master Energy Healing Practitioner Degree is considered one of their highest levels of certification, indicating that the practitioner has advanced knowledge and skills in energy healing techniques
Shamanic healing is an ancient form of healing which intervenes at the level of your energy field so that the changes flow down into your physical life in the form of good health and generally improved life conditions. Shamanic energy healing looks to the power of nature, the ancestral lineage and to Spirit to guide us in removing those blockages, bringing us back to a place of true self love, balance and harmony.
The shamanic medicine practitioner helps to remove these imprints, to let you walk on the path to full healing. An energy healer do not ‘heal’ a person, rather they help remove the energetic ‘sludge’ that can keep us from healing ourselves. Healing is a journey, one where we find unconditional love, balance, and harmony, for ourselves and let that manifest into our every day life.
As a certified master energy medicine practitioner with the Four Winds Institute, the shamanic techniques that I have learnt, combine the ancient wisdom and traditions of the shamans of the Andes with modern neuroscience. It weaves together Science and Spirit, so we can remove the imprints of old stories, traumas, and feelings that are not serving you, bringing light and illumination back to the energy body. This allows you to step into your new story; the one where you are the author, not the victim. These energy sessions are helpful for people going through emotional difficulties, working through past traumas, health challenges, or trying to break repeating patterns. So, if you are feeling stuck, out of balance, or just not yourself, energy healing can help. Each session is unique because each one of us is unique. Whether you are in a big life transition or dealing with illness, a small shift in the energy field can help one get unstuck, to move forward, and to release pain and emotional traumas. Many of my clients reported feeling much ‘lighter’ after a session, because they have been able to let go of these heavy energies they have been carrying around for years.
An energy healing session is catered to everyone’s individual needs. They are typically one hour, and can be offered in-person or online. Using my connection to the Divine, the Luminous ones of my lineage, my ancestors, Spirit, spirit guides and my Guardian Angels, I find the best techniques for each person in that moment. Techniques may include illuminations, tracking, divination, energy extractions, cord cuttings, and soul retrievals. Other practices include, performing rites of passage, creating Ayni despachos to bring your life back into right relationship with the Earth, creating fire ceremonies and the Rite of the Womb rites and retreats
