Every shaman and shamanic healer practices slightly differently. I call myself a shamanic healer because I have not yet earned the title of Shaman in this life – that is a lifelong achievement that can only come from your community. Some have visions, others whispers, some prefer the rituals and ceremonies, others power animals and chanting.
With me, it’s a combination of visions, intuitive whispers & power animals.
After a brief consultation about what is holding you down physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, I will have a rough idea on where to start with my spirit guides.
Depending on whether you are getting a shamanic massage or participating in one of the 6 deep healing rites of passage will them determine how the ceremony will go, but during that time I will be with my spirit guide team.
In a different realm, they guide me with visions, whispers and (possibly) a power animal for you. During this time I will learn what your spiritual body is trying to communicate with you on the emotional, mental and physical planes and relay this information to you.
I’m always astounded at how close to home it resonates for clients.
Bear in mind, I have no idea what the messages mean. I haven’t sat in on Psych 101 classes, and my training is a mixture of real world experience & divine guidance.
I’ve had clients in tears because the message was so on point with their lives.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve also had clients who weren’t really sure what the messages meant at the time. It’s only with hindsight that we can understand things sometimes.
I’ve had clients that have had to go home and use the guidance I was given to do further work internally themselves in order to get the healing & results that they want.
This isn’t a one hit wonder. This isn’t a massage that gets out the kinks in your back or a therapy session that cures your depression. Instead it’s a very real, very deep look at what all the layers your “self” is trying to tell you.
