Shamanic Healing addresses the psychic and spiritual aspects of illnesses where illness is seeing as energy in an inappropriate place or form often blocking the person's life force, not allowing balance or flow. Shamanic Healing aims to remove energy blockages, retrieve soul parts and restore balance, re-empowering the person energetically and spiritually.
Healing is when something in a person changes, shifts, expands or is transformed for better. It can take place in the emotional, the mental, the physical or the spiritual level. Shamanic work is concerned with healing the spirit at a soul level. When a healing takes place at a spirit or soul level very often it has an effect in all other levels.
Healing cannot take place if the person is in a dis-empowered place. First thing to do is to empower the person and we do that by calling the person's spirit helpers and connect the person with them. The spirit helpers provide power, energy and support.
Angelic beings, ancestors, native people, power animal spirits and other beings of light according to the person's own spiritual tradition are very common helpers coming to be of service.
When we suffer a trauma, be it small or major, a part of our soul, a part of our essence flees our body departing to safety leaving us to cope or survive. Sometimes it can also happen that we give away parts of ourselves to someone we love, or through abuse or neglect we may lose a soul part. This soul loss is a process that helps us cope mentally, physically and emotionally.
Part of being human is having this adaptation mechanism for our survival. That part of us - our essence or life force - has the ability to live in other dimensions because we are, by nature, multidimensional beings. When soul loss occurs, we are left with a feeling that something is missing but we are not quite sure what that is. Sometimes it is a sense of not being here, not being present, sometimes it is a sense of confusion, not being able to have clarity or direction, sometimes it is being stuck in enacting suffering and pain, depression may set in, suicidal thoughts haunt us. Childhood trauma is also a very common reason for needing soul retrieval.
With the help of a shamanic practitioner, the inner helpers will tell us how many parts need to come back to help solve a specific problem in our lives. When a healing takes place at a soul level, when the re-union takes place, very often, it has an effect in all other levels. Soul retrieval, although very simple, is one of the most powerful shamanic healing one can have.
A very common type of energetic illness and complain brought for Shamanic practitioners to work on is the removal of intrusive energies. If for whatever reason one has a hole in his/her energy field, negative energies can come and stay in that space. If there for a long time, those energies can manifest themselves as negative thoughts, inapropriate behaviour towards others, physical illnesses or pain and sometimes even suicidal thoughts. Those energies sometimes can also be coming from other people e.g. envy, bad thoughts or anger directed towards one.
During an extraction session, we identify the intrusion and remove it from the person's energetic field. This is another ancient healing technique where the shaman has to have sufficient power, therefore, the importance of learning to be ruthless is fundamental for this work.
As the veils between the spiritual and the physical worlds are becoming thinner and thinner, past life problems have been one of the main causes for people to seek shamanic help. We are all multidimentional beings and on the shamanic path time does not exist, therefore we are able to journey into past lifes for healing purpuses.
This work is for cleansing and balancing the energy field. By upholding unconditional love and channelling healing energy and support to you, the energy healing work helps to raise your vibration and remove blocked energies where needed. This work keeps your energy field strong, hence supporting you in many ways. The integrity and humility of the energy worker keeps the purity and clarity of the energy; and it can go very deep indeed.
As well as offering sessions, Claudia and Mark train people on Shamanism and Energy Healing work. Please check courses from the top menu for details.
