A shaman is a healer of the spirit
Many feel drawn to a shamanic healing session the moment they hear about shamanism for the first time. Many say they don't know why, but simply knew they had to come. Shamanic healing addresses the spiritual aspect of disease, the part of the illness that is in your spirit, soul or energy body.
Shamanic healing complements western medicine that focuses on curing a patient’s symptoms or illness. Shamans believe that healing on the spiritual level can prevent conditions from appearing in the physical body and that healing the spirit allows the body to heal once a condition has appeared.
When Might I Need a Shamanic Healing?
There are many reasons you might seek the support of a shaman:
Emotional unease -- depression, anxiety, worry, long-lasting grief, anger/rage or trauma.
Relief of physical symptoms such as insomnia, recurring nightmares, sudden weight gain or loss, chronic pain, migraines, physical addiction or relationship-related issues.
One of the most common reasons -- addressing a sense of being stuck or blocked.
What Happens During a Session?
The techniques I use address your whole-self, including the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, to create balance and shift your perspective that leads to healing.
I put out a call to the healing forces in nature (mountains, water, air, fire, earth) and my spirit guides (ones that I connect and work with in particular) while holding the intention to ‘heal for your highest good.’ I will be guided on what to do or use for your session which may address something emotional or physical, but it is always intended to give you more spiritual power.
Healing may call upon a combination of using plants; flowers; herbs; oils; smoke & fire; breath; stones; eggs; feathers; trago (infused waters and liquids); shamanic journeying & drumming; sound healing (whistles, bells, chimes, toning, gong); cord cutting; tacuma needles; plant medicines and energy center (chakra) clearing. Often I use oracle tools such as the runes or card decks that I sense will support your healing session.
How does Shamanic Healing Work?
The helping Spirits work through me to cure diseases and illness. In shamanic healing, we classify disease in three broad categories each of which we treat differently -- soul loss, power loss and possession.
In my experience, the spirits always cure but the cure does not always manifest in the way we might imagine. Shamanic healing doesn't always result in instantaneous, complete physical cures, though they sometimes can.
You may receive such a healing and the more you open yourself to that possibility the more you will allow the healing elements to come in.
My Shamanic Training
To be a shaman is to walk a path with humility, a journey in Spirit that continues through lifetimes. I was initiated in Ecuador by indigenous shamana elder Dońa Maria Clamentia Sanchez Kalimba. I am mentored by a Taino-Lakota medicine man and several other Quechuan shamanas and medicine people in Ecuador. They guide me as do my spirit guides and teachers in these ancient ways of clearing and healing.
