Gift of the Shaman Returns

An increasing number of individuals go to shamans to support their well-being. Shamanic healers exist in all cultures. The attire and customs may vary, but the essence of what they do is remarkably similar: they work as intermediaries between Spirits and our reality to support positive change.

What happens in a shamanic healing session?
The core of the work happens while the shaman journeys to the spiritual world to gain insights about a particular situation and support healing. A session also generally includes hands-on healing to help integrate the effects of the journey, release blockages and increase the body’s innate healing ability.

How can a shamanic healing support your health?
Clients generally come to a shaman with a long list of issues they want to work on, including serious health issues, emotional and physical traumas. Shamanic healing works as an adjunct to, not a substitute for, conventional medical or psychological services. Medical practitioners refer patients to a shaman to help them better integrate a treatment, or release energetic and emotional blocks.

What is so powerful in a shamanic healing?
Shamanism works at a level from which we are often dissociated in our modern busy lives. It helps reconnect the different dimensions of a human being. The shaman creates a safe and sacred container for the client to develop a state of relaxation and radical presence in which healing energies can be brought to your whole being, bypassing most usual resistances, facilitating a healing you may have stopped believing in.

Which benefit can you expect from a shamanic session?
At the end of a session, you will have gained invaluable insights about the different dimensions of your situation. You will feel peaceful and hopeful, unusually clear in your mind and body. In most cases, you will also feel immediate physical shifts. The effects of the healing will continue to unfold as time goes by.

Is there any follow-up treatment suggested?
It varies greatly from person to person. Some people may need to work with the shaman over a few months to consolidate the results from the initial session. A conscientious shaman always checks with a client in the weeks following an initial session to discuss how things are enfolding for them.

How often should I get a shamanic healing?
Most individuals find it useful to come back for a shamanic journey every few months or once a year.

Is shamanism associated with some sort of religion practice?
Shamanism is not a religion, nor does it interfere with any religion. Individuals’ beliefs are always fully respected. Though shamanic healing works at the level of the soul, no belief is required on the client’s part, no need to understand all of it, just an open attitude. The shaman’s ethic is to respect your boundaries and will. A shamanic healing is often a life changing experience but it is entirely yours; you remain the one in charge.

I am awakening to the fullness of my soul.

My story is woven into the very fabric of life.
I walk this earth in a sacred manner.
I let my light shine.
I help others to shine their light.
What I love will help and heal the world.
The universe is waiting for me to fully engage in life!
When I am joyfully creating, I bring the vibration of joy to all.
My gratitude and appreciation brings a glow to my heart.
I look for creative ways to express my gratitude.
My love is my art.
Time stands still when I am creating from my heart.
I have the courage to try new things.
I do what I think I cannot do.
I face my life with positivity and excitement.
I embrace the unknown and open to the Great Mystery.
I am in awe at the miracles that unfold in my life when I trust.
I allow love to live through me.
When I surrender to my soul, I come alive!
I plant new seeds of love and light in my life.
I enjoy the time I spend planting and preparing as much as I will enjoy the fruits of my labors of love.
The more I live in the present moment, the more I enjoy the journey.
I am opening to ever greater perceptions of spirit.
As I open my spiritual senses I see even more beauty all around me.
As I enjoy the fruits of my creations I look for ways to share and collaborate with others.
Every good deed, kind thought, creative endeavor is an intangible seed of life planted in my heart.
I am the fruit and the seed of my life.
