Shamanic Tradition and Practice
Shamanic teachings consider that everything that exists is alive and has a spirit, connected with all things through a web of life, that everything on earth is interconnected and that to consider that we are separate from this is only an illusion.
Traditionally a Shaman was an important part of tribal and community life, a medicine person said to be able to communicate with Spirit and, through guided trance, journey to spiritual realms with the help of their own spiritual allies and guides in order to communicate with Spirit and to initiate healing. This guided journey is often facilitated using drums, rattles or bells and initiates an altered brain state that allows the Shaman to journey to the spiritual realms.
Shamanic Healing Ceremonies
Modern day Shamanism still follows this tradition, with trained and experienced practitioners like myself working with power animals and spirit helpers to seek advice and healing for the client. You may have heard of power animals and this is one of the most common types of spirit energies that work with the Shamanic Practitioner - others include guardian spirits and spirit teachers offering help. Shamanic Healing Ceremonies should only be undertaken by a qualified, experienced Shamanic Practitioner.
As with all holistic approaches, Shamanic Healing Ceremonies are very much a two way process, with dedication from both the practitioner and the client. It is important that if you are considering a Shamanic Healing Ceremony, you are willing and ready to make changes toward a positive, spiritually supportive way of being.
