Shamanism is about empowerment; it's where your unique issue is recognized and met with appropriate healing and guidance tailored to your needs. It isn't Reiki which uses universal life force energy as a universal fix. From a shamanic approach, every aspect of a human, including the soul, has its own unique life force, it's own power; with injury and trauma specific life force can leave and that particular life force has to be brought back for healing to endure, not just feel temporarily better. It takes a skilled shaman altar conscsiousness and travel through spiritual realms to find the right power for the right person. When power leaves, that can cause a vulnerability, where a person can be shadowed by another being; in which case, psychopmomp work is appropriate. Even energy blockages and trauma that accumulate around and within a person's body, which show up as physical issues, are specific and call for specifc shamanic approach. Often a loving spiritual ally may have left so a person may need a specific ally to protect, guide and empower.
In these times, those of us trained in shamanism look to heal big modern problems that afflict us. I find that people who need this transformational work most, have survived and are struggling with soul wounds and soul loss, from traumatic experiences, like addiction, loss, shock, injury, and abuse. People who surivive trauma want to be unleashed from this burden. Often the legacy of trauma shows up as a pattern that can haunt an individual and families like a curse. This can be positively transformed. Survivors want and need healing and empowerment. I help people to:
--release trauma held in the body, soul and ancestral past,
--release spiritual blockages,
--be free from spiritual intrusions and
--be more present in their body.
Survivors long to be present and whole. They need to be restored to balance, rather than be experiencing life in extremes, like numbness and fear.
A psycopomp in Greek literally describes a "pomp," one who is skilled in conducting a "psyche," soul, from one world to another; the practice, like the term itself, was observed and carried out by ancient Greeks, and an aspect of a shamanic practitioner's role, if they are proficient and feel called to it. I think it's a very important part in healing trauma and abuse. A psycopomp can see the unseen affecting a person and has the power and spiritual aids to transition the unseen who suffer and trigger problems for themselves and the living, often unintentionally. (For more information about this type of healing, check out the psychopomp work tab.)
Another reason I practice shamanism, why I journey between seen and unseen worlds, is to bring back guidance. This shines light on the best options for a good path forward. Rely on someone with strong spiritual eyes who has the training and affinity to work closely with compassionate, helping spirits for your highest good, with honesty and kindness.
What can you expect from a shamanic session? A heart centered approach to whatever is needed: soul and power retrieval, extraction, psychopomp work, curse unraveling, divination, dream interpretation, and physical healing. The outcome is a radiant spirit transformation.
Shamanism and energy healing, like Reiki, are supportive of healing, not a substitute for being evaluated and treated by a medical professional.
