The healing tools of the Shaman ~ What to expect and how Shamanic Healing and Shamanic Practices work
What should I expect from a Shamanic Healing Session?
Shamanism is the practice of bringing balance through the developing of an animistic relationship with the world around and within us. This is a relationship that not just 'sees' or 'knows,' but experiences everything around ourselves as being 'alive,' All indigenous and ancient cultures have, or had their own energy medicine, healing practices. And they had their own practitioners, medicine men and women, yogi's, sadhu's, priests, shaman, healers. The names are less important than that they all lived in as close a relationship with the land and the world around them as they could. And this relationship helped to hold them in balance and harmony so that they could help each of us who came to them to find our balance and harmony too.
The Qero and Inca peoples call this balance and harmony 'ayni.'
The intention of a shamanic healing session is to assist the person coming for support to let go of old patterns, thoughts, feelings, actions, beliefs that no longer serve them well or help them to grow. Help them to be in ayni with the world around and within them.
Really these things are just energy in the wrong place and as a Shaman my role is to help create balance. Removing heavy energies that do not feed you and replacing that old heavy energy that needs to 'go home' with an energy represented by a beautiful and illuminating golden light. So that you can go on to create the next part of your story, your new story from something uninformed by your past. Helping you to source yourself from the future instead.
Practically a Shamanic healing session with me will last from one to two hours. We begin with a short introductory history. What brings you here today? When did things start to change so that you decided to come for this kind of help? We look for the 'hooks' that show up through the telling of your life story, So that we can track and then remove 'imprints' in your 'luminous energy field' that cause these life patterns to repeat. There will come a time after a couple of sessions when you will be ready to really step into your new life, and at this time the practice of Soul retrieval will be available.
Actually, there is really no such thing as soul loss, or soul retrieval. Because nothing is ever really lost or needs retrieving. Energy cannot be destroyed, only changed into different forms. Really it is the 'connection' with our soul parts, with our grace, our essential self, that is re-stored.
This separation with a part of our core or essential self happens when we sense that great trauma or loss is imminent. At this point the connection with our most innocent and vulnerable self is diminished so that we do not feel the loss or trauma that would touch right into the core of who we are. But while we are protected at this deep level from the pain that may follow, we also feel the separation that is created, and from then on we begin to look for what we feel is lost.
