Shamanic healing is done in relationship with compassionate Helping Spirits. In order to address what is not working, I communicate with the Spirits to determine what healing method will best address the issue at hand.
Illness comes either from the loss of spiritual power, or from the presence of an energy that does not belong in the body. Shamanic healing methods are used to address the spiritual aspect of a physical, mental, or emotional issue that manifests as illness, fatigue, discomfort, or a general feeling of being unwell.
Healing methods may include:
Power Animal Retrieval
Passing Spiritual Power
Additional advanced methods as needed
Often, we find ourselves at a crossroads, not knowing what direction to go. Through Shamanic divination methods, I can communicate with the compassionate Helping Spirits to provide wisdom and information that can assist you in choosing the right path for you. I use methods from Core Shamanism, methods taught to be by teachers from specific cultures, and methods I have developed with my own Helping Spirits. Divination can be used to answer questions, as well as to determine what steps are required to address situations which may require healing or other ceremonies.
The word Psychopomp means "conductor of souls." When a person dies, they can become stuck and unable to move onto the next stage of their journey. Through Shamanic Psychopomp work, I can assist these suffering beings in moving on in a way that is compassionate to them and also protects the living from their unhelpful energies. Psychopomp work is often done if a loved one passes away but continues to manifest for the living in ways that are unwanted or distressing.
Often, a space, such as a home or office, will become filled with unhealthy energies. The space may feel uncomfortable, or people who live or work there may feel anxious or drained. Using my relationships with my Helping Spirits, as well as through working with the Spirits residing on the land, I can work to create a more harmonious space that feels calming and clear.
Sometimes, there is a sense of unwellness related to the land itself, requiring negotiation with nature beings. I can work with these Spirits to find what they need in order to find harmony.
Shamanic counseling is a method of using the Shamanic Journey as a divinatory method to solve problems and seek answers with the assistance of a Shamanic Counselor, who serves to hold space and offer guidance on the experience of working with helping spirits.
I also offer guidance around past experiences of altered states of consciousness, whether positive or negative. Often when in heightened states, we experiences great depth of emotion, but struggle afterwards to put these experiences in context. Through a process of guided reflective listening, I can help process these experiences, as well as determine if there is additional work needed to integrate.
