Shamanic Healing

What is Shamanic Healing ?

Shamanic healing is a spiritual and medical practice based upon the belief that all healing includes a spiritual dimension. ‘Shaman’s enter altered states of consciousness to communicate with other realms of reality. The ‘Shamans’ journey is to help the client to rediscover their connection to nature and spirit.

Shamanic medicine is a tradition dating back 25,000 years. The ’Shaman’ is responsible for the health of those who see him or her. This is a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance. Shaman’s are the mediators between the physical and the spirit world. The spiritual healing methods of Shamanic are now receiving increased and significant attention in today’s society, as Shamanic healing affects the energy field of a person.

To better understand how a ‘Shaman’ heals it is important to understand some of the basic concepts of what Shamanism is. It is a specific set of methodologies for accessing the spirit or energy field of anything or anyone. The ‘Shaman’ heals by working unseen/inner/spiritual reality to crate changes, which in turn crate changes in see/physical/everyday reality.

The essential perspective of the ‘Shaman’ is:
1. Everything is alive. Everything has spirit and awareness.
2. Energy and matter are the same. Everything is vibration. Everything that exists is an energy system within a greater energy system.
3. Everything that exists is connected to everything else in a web of energy or life.
4. Unseen/inner/spiritual reality affects visible reality.

Working within this system of perceptions, the ‘Shaman’ strives to create balance and harmony of the spirit. This can be focused on the client or a group. This also can be applied to anything that exists.

What distinguishes the ‘Shaman’ from other types of healer are his methods. The journeying, or Shamanic state of consciousness, allows the ‘Shaman’ to send out their consciousness to obtain information from the spirit world. This information is retrieved and used for further insight or healing. Example: a ‘Shaman’ might assist in healing a broken bone by opening up an increased energy flow to that area, or help a person half from an emotional depression by restoring energy lost as a result of a traumatic event.

By using Shamanic practices a wide spectrum of healing is possible. Traditional ‘Shaman’ healing is done by journeying to the bat of a drum or rattle to visit a teacher/spirit/totem for guidance or wisdom. Shamanic healing takes place in many forms, depending on what the spirits recommend. This can include plant and mineral spirit medicine, through ancestral memories, soul retrieval; extraction and soul escorting.

‘Shaman’s employ many different healing methods besides those acquired during journeying, these are herbs, visualization, and hands on, use of aroma, gemstones, and basic psychology. The ‘Shaman’ will use their lore of nature along with the ability they have to read auras and apply the knowledge of chakras to heal. The ‘Shaman’ understand the necessity to use both nature and spirit in healing. All of the above used in any combination may be used, along with journeying to heal. All depends upon the situation.

In summary, the practices of Shamanism involves making conscious connection with that which is spirit or life that which is sacred — all things. Healing can be accomplished through this connection by working directly to create greater balance and harmony of energy and spirit, and bringing back to the ordinary world awareness from the spirit world.

To do healing works of any kind a ‘Shaman’ will typically journey to the spiritual cause of problems. A particular problem of everyday life might have very different spiritual causes. In other words, illness that looks exactly the same symptomatically in two different people might be the manifestation of different underlying situations. In one person, depression and fatigue can be caused from a spiritual injury to the heart; while the same symptoms might be caused from excessive worry in another.
And once the ‘Shaman’ gains understanding, he/she has a variety of ways of working the client with the desire of healing.
