Healers of ancient cultures had the knowing on how to alleviate members of their tribes from various afflictions, be it physical or mental / emotional, when always the dysfunctions in people’s health would be the result of finding themselves alone, disconnected from their Highest Source.

What is Shamanic healing?

Shamanic healing draws upon the knowledge of many ancient cultures who, by necessity, were more intimately connected to the natural world, the people around them and the energies that help and hinder both.

Gradual urbanisation and the erosion of traditional practices has pushed Shamanism out of the heart of human life, but we are all nonetheless still affected by the energies that Shamanism works with. Unfortunately, without widespread access to Shamanic healing, people are more vulnerable than ever to the effects of imbalanced and/or negative energy.

Like Reiki, Shamanic healing balances and strengthens your chakras (the points at which energy is able to enter and flow through the body) so that energy flows through you as it is supposed to. Indeed, both types of healing address the same issues, just with different methods, which is why I combine both in my healing sessions.

Shamanic healing being more earthy and coming from cultures who live very close to nature uses deeper practices such as soul retrieval and journeys into the unconscious to track and address issues that are creating imbalances. These issues have usually been passed down by the lineage or were unresolved in certain past lives.

What’s the difference between Shamanic healing and Reiki?

While Shamanic healing and Reiki both work on your chakras and overall well-being, the energies that they draw upon are very different. Reiki connects to the universal energy, which I refer to as “heavenly energy”, while Shamanic healing connects to the energy of living beings, or “earthly energy”.

There are benefits to both, but unlike a Reiki healer who connects mainly channels positive energies, a Shamanic healer connect to the deeper layers of energies, both positive and negative.

Various cultures have described these positive and negative energies in different ways, often as spirits, and the concepts of blessings and curses are derived from the intense impact that such energies can have on our lives.

This means that, in untrained hands, Shamanism can be a “dangerous” form of healing. More precautions must be taken by a practitioner of Shamanic healing to ensure that both the client and the healer themselves are safe from negative forces that may seek to impede the healing process once the connection to earthly energy is made.

Shamanic journeys are the other way that Shamanic healing differs from Reiki. These journeys are shared between the healer and the client, and they explore your past, present and future possibilities. This allows you to see what baggage from the past is holding you back and what lessons the past can offer to help you today, as well allowing you to explore all potential destinies that are ahead of you and how you might achieve the one that is most desirable.

Can you tell me more about Shamanic journeys?

During a Shamanic journey, your healer serves as a guide to lead you towards knowledge that can benefit you while helping you navigate around mental and emotional obstacles that may hinder your progress. These journeys can take you to places and memories you might have long forgotten or deliberately suppressed, sometimes even delving into ancestral experiences.

Exploring such realms can be challenging, especially for individuals who have undergone trauma. Thus, recognizing when to gently guide a client back is another essential responsibility of a Shamanic healer. These healers have the ability to perceive parts or the entirety of your journey, underscoring the importance of trusting them to act in your best interests.

With the right guidance, Shamanic journeys become one of the most transformative experiences you can encounter in your life. They help you identify and shed the baggage holding you back, enabling you to grasp the possibilities the future holds, empowering you to make informed decisions and take proactive, positive action.

How do you protect me from negative forces during a Shamanic healing session?

Both clients and healers can shield themselves from negative forces by creating a sacred space where only positive and pure energies are allowed to enter. As the healing process unfolds, various energies are drawn to both the practitioner and the client. Hence, creating this sacred space serves as a "filter" to prevent any malevolent energies from infiltrating.

This sacred space is established through a ceremony that only trained and experienced Shamanic healers can perform. It invokes elements and archetypes associated with the four cardinal directions (north, east, south, and west), the Earth, and the heavens to infuse the room with overwhelmingly positive energy, thereby warding off malevolent forces.

Who can benefit from Shamanic healing?

The most common sensation reported by my clients is a feeling of lightness, as if a burden has been lifted, which is often the case. They also frequently describe feeling more energized and better equipped to make sound, positive decisions, even in challenging situations.

In the early stages of the process, you might feel slightly overwhelmed by the visions experienced during Shamanic journeys. Therefore, it's recommended to have some personal time and space after a session to reflect on what you've seen and experienced. I always ensure not to expose clients to too much too soon.

Long-term, it's not an exaggeration to say that the effects are life-changing. The combination of balanced chakras and the wisdom revealed through Shamanic journeys empowers people to turn their dreams into reality, just as I have and continue to do as a Shamanic healer and Reiki master.

How will I feel after Shamanic healing?

The most common sensation reported by my clients is a feeling of lightness, as if a burden has been lifted off them – which, quite often, it has. They also often feel more energised and able to make wise, positive decisions, even when faced with challenging situations.

Early on in the process, you may feel slightly overwhelmed by the visions experienced during Shamanic journeys, so it’s recommended that you have some time and space to yourself after a session to think about what you have seen and experienced – though I will always make sure not to expose a client to too much too soon.

Long term, it’s no exaggeration to say that the effects are life-changing. The combination of balanced chakras and the wisdom revealed by Shamanic journeys allows people to make their dreams a reality, just as I did and continue to do now as a Shamanic healer and Reiki master.

How do you use Shamanic healing 
during your energy healing sessions?

Thanks to my knowledge of Shamanic healing, I initiate all healing sessions by creating a sacred space. This allows me to harness both earthly and heavenly energies, complementing the energy channelling of Reiki. This enables precise clearing, balancing, and revitalization of my client's energy. Additionally, if desired, I can guide clients on a Shamanic journey.
