Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to humankind and is the ancestor of all our modern religions. As a method, it is a form of meditation combined with the focused intention to accomplish various goals. As a spiritual practice, shamanism can become a way of life that may utterly transform the one who practices it.
A Shaman helps you when you are looking for a strong sense of self, sense of purpose, finding your way to wholeness, helping you reconnect with your inner sources of wisdom and power, guiding you gently home. A Shaman is the bridge between the Spiritual world, the Animal Spirit , the Nature Spirit and people.
Shamans work with the spirit or the soul. They heal illness at the soul level. They gain knowledge and insight from working with the spirits of nature such as rocks and trees, the land, and they gain knowledge from working with spirits of animals and humans such as their ancestors. For the shaman everything is alive and carries information, you can call this spirit, energy, or consciousness.
The purpose of Soul Retrieval is to reintegrate the soul part that might have become disconnected, trapped or lost through trauma such as accident, addiction, surgery, abuse, loss as in the death of a loved one, etc...This is considered a positive protection mechanism. A shaman intervenes and returns the soul essence, when needs be.
With the guidance of a Shaman, you will discover Past Life experiences that need healing, that might be useful for you today. Major events from childhood and infancy, both positive and negative in nature, can have a tremendous impact, and expectancies that result from these experiences continue to affect us in our lives. Being aware of these experiences and healing them if necessary could help you with your life right now.
Shamans work with the spirit or the soul and they work with energy. In the case of shamanic extraction they are working with misplaced energy. No energy is truly bad from a shamanic perspective. If energy is misplaced or it isn't in accord with the environment (the human body, or the body of land...) it could bring illness.
Shamanic extraction is the removal of displaced energy, sometimes called intrusions. This is energy that does not belong in the body and may cause illness.
In a long distance healing a shaman healer will journey to where you are, and perform a healing on you in a similar way to what they would do if they were right there with you in physical form. People may or may not have sensations when this healing is occurring, depending on the person's sensitivity. Also, because time is relative, the person being healed may not receive the effects of the healing in the moment in which the shaman is performing the healing. The healing may be "delivered" at a different time or date.
In the shamanic belief everything is alive and carries with it power and wisdom. Power animals are an essential component of shamanic practice. They are the helping spirits which add to the power of the shaman and are essential for success in any venture undertaken by the shaman.
Shamans believe that everyone has power animals - animal spirits which reside with each individual adding to their power, lending them their wisdom and protecting them from illness, acting similarly to a guardian angel. It is important to honor your power animal, their assistance and to thank them. I can help you find your power animal.
