A shaman is a person who interacts with both the ordinary world and the non-ordinary world of spirits, usually acting as a sort of intermediary between the two in which he/she brings messages and healing. The shaman uses different modalities to journey in to the non-ordinary world. Shamans are present and are common in many tribal cultures though they are known by many different names, some of which you might be familiar with like curanderos, witch doctors, witches or oracles.
This person is often responsible for both the physical and spiritual health of people in their community, and he or she may also be called upon to invoke spirits to aid or to predict the future and/or interpret omens. Shamanism is based in animism which is the oldest spiritual tradition known to humanity. There are many aspects to shamanic work and there are many benefits that you can attain. The most important of them all being, soul healing.
The Soul Healing Process – Just as it took you many life experiences and years to get to where you are today, the healing of one’s soul is also a process which will require time, effort and dedication. Soul healing is a personalized process that cannot be completed in one visit, the length of the process varies for each person. The soul healing and integration process will be determined by Spirit. The process may include but it is not limited to any of the following:
To learn more about the above mentioned modalities please read below. If you have any questions or concerns about the Soul Healing process please contact me.
Soul Retrieval – There are times in our life or even past life that we may go through some dramatic and traumatic events that causes part of our soul stay behind. This separation serves to protect those parts which otherwise might experience severe injury or even destruction, and is best viewed as a useful short-term coping mechanism — in extreme cases, even a survival mechanism — during trying times. It is a gift of love that a Self gives to itself. In the long term, however, if the soul parts do not return to the person, problems may occur. For example if you were to lose a piece to a puzzle you may still be able to build the puzzle but the picture would not be complete. In the same way people who have left behind pieces of their soul essence, though they may function well in certain areas of their lives, the overall quality of their lives maybe affected. The effects of retrieving these lost pieces may or may not include: relief from depression, anxiety or fear, the removal of long-standing blockages towards achievement, the return of forgotten memories, the restoration of atrophied skills or abilities, the acquiring of new skills or abilities, or a renewal of self-love. As a shaman I work in retrieving that part of your soul essence and help integrate it back to your overall self to help you be more complete and a better you.
Soul Releasing – There are times we have done a lot of spiritual work, we have gone through the soul retrieval process and we do everything we can to bring healing and wholeness to our beings but somehow you still feel stuck and unable to move forward in your journey. This may be due to the fact that you may be holding onto soul essences that do not belong to you. When we engage in unhealthy relationships and we don’t know how to cope or be mindful of our thoughts and actions, the energy exchanged can cause for us to steal someone else’s soul essence. When we hold on to something or someone tightly we can engage in soul stealing. The soul essence you take, you are unable to use and so it becomes an energetic burden. So, it is important to your spiritual growth and development to let go of those essences which you might have unintentionally stolen. The act of soul essence stealing is not one that most people engage in a conscious way that is why we must live mindfully and if we have identified situations in which we may have done so, it is our responsibility to release them.
Soul Remembering – We go about our everyday living and we wake up one day depressed and unhappy about where we are in life. We don’t know how we got here and where we are going. We have lost the joy of living our everyday lives. We listen to our loved ones and what they think or feel we should be doing, that we forget what it is that we want, we forget our soul’s purpose is in this lifetime. We all come here to accomplish something and to have a well lived life. Soul remembering is a modality of healing in which it facilitates you to once again remember your soul’s purpose and to once again start living your life honoring such purpose.
Shamanic Counseling – I will facilitate your own experience in non-ordinary reality. You will become the one who walks between the worlds. This is a life changing experience for those who experience it. There you will meet your teacher and helping animal spirits that will help you in your life’s journey. They will provide you the answers to your burning questions. You will be able to be face to face with the divine and seek the guidance and wisdom you need.
Power Animal Retrieval – Everyone has at least one spirit helper in animal form. It is possible to have more and as you continue through your life’s journey they may change. Your power animal aids you whether you are aware of them or not. They provide protection, assistance, wisdom, direction and companionship. In a shamanic worldview, the individual’s personal power and physical vitality is a gift from these helpers, hence the term "power animals". These spirits generally take the form of undomesticated animals and like their physical counterparts; they will come and go. When a power animal leaves the company of a person, another power animal usually appears to take its place. If this does not occur the person may experience a diminishment of personal power which might manifest as serious illness, emotional imbalance, bad luck, personal crisis or just a feeling of loss. As a shaman I will journey on your behalf and retrieve the power animal that you are in need of at this time. I will also teach you ways in which you can strengthen your relationship with it. Once your power animal has been retrieved, you may experience a resurgence of power, health or effectiveness.
Shamanic Extraction Healing - Shamanic cultures consider the presence of spirit intrusions to be an important component in serious sickness and disease. These intrusions are not evil in nature, but they certainly do not belong where they are, which has negative effects on the afflicted. Every shaman has a different way of seeing/feeling these intrusions, some might see them in the form of insects, others in the form of sharp-pointed objects penetrating the body, others might see them as blobs of shapeless goo and others as heavy boulders or stones. But in every case it is the shaman’s responsibility to extract these intrusions. In this way addressing the sickness through a spiritual perspective and in turn it has the potential of having the ability to affect the physical ailment itself.
Body Part Spirit Essence Retrieval - Our physical bodies sometimes experience sickness and traumas, as a result organs as well as limbs maybe removed or replaced during their medical treatments or procedures. In this case part of your soul essence may leave with it. In the case of transplants you may lose some and you may receive someone else’s soul essence. In this modality we bring your body back into balance after such an invasive medical procedure. For the individuals who are integrating with their new transplants we partner this modality with extraction healing. We utilize extraction to release the previous individual’s soul essence and then we bring back your lost soul essence back to you. This allows your body to integrate the new organ better and facilitate healing. This modality is also used to bring healing and wholeness to a specific part of your body that is currently dysfunctional, in pain or has been replaced with a metal joint or prosthetic.
Divination - For as long as humanity has been aware of our linear perception of time, people have wanted to know what tomorrow holds. Since the spirits live in a timeless dimension, they are considered to have larger, longer, wider perspectives regarding the trajectories of the universe than we people can possibly have. Hence for millennia we have consulted them in one way or another, in our attempts to answer questions about the future. The very word “divination”, which means “the act of foretelling” reflects the fact that from ancient times prophecy has been considered to be generated by divinities or spirits. As a shaman doing shamanic divination we go into the non-ordinary world to seek the answer to your question.
Home/Land/Business Soul Essence Retrieval - As it happens with our own soul when a location home/business/land has suffered trauma whether it is by a natural or human causes the soul essence of that area moves to a different place where it may feel better suited. That leads to negative energies finding an open space to congregate and usually make the situation worse. These dispirited places are easy to recognize. They are usually places in which you get an uneasy feeling just being there, a lot of accidents or misfortunes have occurred and you don’t sense happiness and peace. If there is a place that fits this description then it is a good candidate for this modality. The soul essence retrieval is done in tandem with a cleansing and extraction healing of the area. This brings the space back to its balance and health.
