After returning from Peru for the third time, my sights were set on other countries, other tribes and the different ways they healed their people. I have continued to integrate all of these teachings for the good of my clients.
“WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS DIFFICULT AND FEELS AS THOUGH YOU ARE SWIMMING UP STREAM, IT IS USUALLY BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT FOLLOWING THE DIRECTION OF GODS WILL. WHEN YOU ARE DOING GODS WILL, EVERYTHING SEEMS TO HAPPEN WITHOUT MUCH EFFORT OR MANY OBSTACLES.”
Shamanic traditions predate recorded history and are rooted in the cycles of the earth and the wheeling of the sun, moon and stars through the sky. Shamanism is the oldest documented spiritual practice dating back 40,000 years and is rooted in awarenes, presence and gratitude.
A fundamental premise of Shamanism is that as spiritual beings, humans are interconnected with all other life and with everything in the environment, all which is infused with spirit. Animals, plants, the wind, the sun and stones all have spirit/consciousness. All that can be communicated with and learned from. Shamanic perspective holds an integrated view of the universe, one that crosses the boundaries of ordinary and not ordinary reality, the physical and the spiritual.
Shamanism can be a great adventure, one in which the client, as well as the Shaman are involved. Through heroic journeying and effort, the Shaman helps her client transcend their normal, ordinary definition of reality, including the definition of themselves as ill.
It offers a context of our origins that suggests a direct communication with the divine and the possibility of influencing the course of ones destiny.
Shamanism can be seen as the exercise of power with the goal of service, compassion and vision. It requires that you learn how from nature and teaches you to meet power directly, embrace it and claim it.
Shamanism has found a place within our culture in recent years as a form of spiritual and energetic therapy. Clients of Shamanic sessions consult with modern Shamans on issues such as career decisions, creative blocks, health, relationships, spirituality, grief and more.
