Thank you for being open to the beauty and peace that is available through shamanic healing. I am grateful for this opportunity to assist your healing process and share my skills with you!
This guide gives you an overview of how a typical session works, what you can expect, and how to prepare and follow through.
Shamanic Healing Sessions
Sessions are done in person at my healing studio or remotely over the phone. Both methods are remarkably effective.
A session begins with opening Sacred Space - calling in universal organizing principals and assisting energies to help in the healing session. We step together outside linear time and space and invite the assistance of healers and guides from the past and future, luminous beings who protect and guide us.
Next, we discuss what is calling for healing at this moment, framed within the context of your journey in this lifetime. Express what is important to you in your life and your hopes for the session’s outcome.
The session proceeds with the processes of Illumination, Extraction, Soul Retrieval, or Energy Moving, depending on what is present to be healed. The session ends with a review of the healing work that has taken place and coaching for integration into your life.
The Shamanic tools that may be used in a session are my Andean Mesa, my Pachakuti Mesa, Stones and Crystals, a gentle rattle, Smudging, and Spirit Water.
Everything that is said or takes place is held in sacred confidence, and you need not reveal anything you do not wish to. The requirements for a session to be of benefit are simply a readiness to participate and a willingness to release your issue and receive healing energies. A session usually takes around 1.5 hours. Generally, three sessions are recommended with at least a few weeks interval in order to integrate the energetic shifts. The healing session is performed lying down clothed on a comfortable treatment table.
Our physical body is permeated and informed by a Luminous Energy Field which is a matrix that can hold imprints of karmic and genetic memories and wounds. These imprints can be activated by circumstances, compelling us into patterns of behavior, relationships, accidents or illnesses that replicate the original trauma. These patterns are part of our personal map of life. An Illumination is the clearing of such negative imprints in our Luminous Energy Field, freeing us to live life fully.
An imprint in the Luminous Energy Field expresses as sluggish energy around a chakra. During the healing session, the heavy emotional energy of the imprint is dislodged and drained out through the chakra, then the imprint itself is erased through the use of focused intention and breath. Illumination can prevent illness from ever expressing itself physically, enhance the immune system, and accelerate the healing process.
Although the Illumination process combusts toxic energies, sometimes toxic energy becomes very dense and crystallized, and is impossible to metabolize through the Illumination process. Then it must be extracted. Extraction can take place at anytime during the session.
While crystallized energy embeds itself within the energy body, intrusive energy can embed itself within the central nervous system. Intrusive energies or entities come from outside, they do not belong to us. They are fluid and can move around in the body, and must be extracted using a special process. Normally, our Luminous Energy Field recognizes them as foreign, and will eradicate them in the same way the immune system eliminates foreign bacteria. However, in some instances, such as when we are exhausted, the defense systems of the luminous body can be overwhelmed. It is then that an intrusive energy can invade and embed itself in the nervous system.
Many problems are caused, or exacerbated, by intrusive entities. They can produce anxiety, depression, addictions, mood swings, and a host of other symptoms. After these energies are extracted, healing can move forward rapidly, however one must also recognize and come into right relationship with the affinity that first attracted and held the foreign energy in the body, or the situation may repeat. Other forms of the extraction process may include cutting cords or feeding tubes to entities that siphon off our life force.
Soul Loss is an imbalance caused by disassociation of a part of our vital essence or soul. It is a spiritual illness caused by trauma that can result in emotional or physical disease. In modern society this is often caused by birth or childhood traumas; emotional or physical abuse; incest, rape, or assault; divorce, separation, or loss of a loved one; war, accidents, illness, or surgery.
In these instances, it is a natural human response to disassociate from our bodies in order to cope with the emotional pain. Sometimes these fractured parts of our souls do not return, and without wholeness, life can be difficult and painful.
Symptoms of soul loss include: Chronic depression, apathy, numbness, lack of vitality or fatigue; an unhealthy connection to any individual, past partner or family member; a feeling that you are watching your life from the outside; a chronic illness or a weak immune system; feelings of emptiness which you try to fill with external things; difficulty staying present in your body or having memory gaps; a propensity towards addictions or destructive behavior.
During Soul Retrieval, the practitioner journeys to the Lower World, the domain of the collective unconscious where those parts of our souls that we have dissociated are suspended. The healer visits the four chambers of the Soul to assist the client to discover the source of their wounds; to understand the Soul promises that they made, even before they were born; to claim the source of their passion and bliss; and to discover the treasures and gifts that they can bring forth into the world. Often a power animal comes to aid the client. Soul Retrieval can accomplish in a few sessions what sometimes takes years to achieve in psychotherapy.
Your session may include a journey to the under world or upper world in which your light body has experiences in invisible realms. It is similar to a lucid dream, except you are awake and conscious of what is happening.
Preparing for your session
Spend some time getting clear about your issue and your intention for the session. Jot down what comes to mind on a notepad and bring it and a pen with you. Two days in advance avoid things that dull your awareness such as alcohol, caffeine, non-prescribed drugs, or TV. Wear loose, light colored (not dark or black) clothing to your session, and no perfume. Drink plenty of water. Give yourself enough time to arrive without rushing and plan for a relaxing time afterward.
After your Session
Rest and relax. Write down any insights, images or messages that came to you in your session. For two days afterward avoid substances that dull your awareness. Take a bath with Epsom salts to help clear energetic residue from your Luminous Energy Field. Check in with me by e-mail or phone, I would love to hear how you are being.
