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’
1. Everything is alive. Everything has spirit and
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
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
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
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
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.
