Shamanic healing is a very ancient form of working with a client and these practitioners have been around in recorded history for over 60,000 years – from the Tungus in Siberia, from the rock art deep in the mountains of Europe, to the living art of the first people of Oz – in fact they are recorded in all cultures that have occupied this planet through the rituals and ceremonies handed down through the ages.
This profound and powerful way of release and renewal is based upon the principle that what ever is occurring in your current life – break down, break up, illness, grief and loss, guilt and shame, addiction, anxiety and terror, inadequacy and feelings of lack of worth or value – what ever pain or life circumstances you are currently dealing with – it is all based on a disturbance of equilibrium within you.
Something is out of balance. And if it is manifesting in external or internal symptoms to point this out to you, it is doing so that you may do what ever is required to restore balance.
This presupposes a very deep truth. That you are never a victim. That what ever is occurring for you is being co-created by you – with others or with your own physical, psychological, emotional or spiritual reality in order for you to heal [not cure] yourself of the imbalance and allow your life to return to equilibrium.
And you have the power to do this – absolutely. The placebo effect is a classic observation of this ability.
We are taught in the west that an illness is beyond your control and must be medicated or cut in order to subdue it, control or eliminate it and the same with your emotional and psychological world – that it is like a Newtonian clock in that when it breaks – replace the broken bit and all will be well.
Again let us drug the heart and mind into submission. And as for spirituality – well we actually don’t get much of that on the planet currently – we have religion instead which is all about giving your power to the priest and they will get you to “god” lol. Crowd control really.
From the moment of your birth unto the moment of your death everything is connected to the web of life – of all creation and your life is a rhythm of ebb and flow, waxing and waning and we are forever experiencing the ‘little deaths’ of life’s changes, release and renewal.
But we are also taught in the west that we can only flow – forward – forcefully – and that change is to be resisted at all costs and the only movement allowed is expansion – there is no room for letting go, for the cycles of life, the seasons, we are death deniers and terrified of our own mortality and this whole process creates an immense imbalance that leads absolutely to the pain and heartache that has become the given norm of the world we currently dwell in.
When a client comes to a Shamanic practitioner for a healing – all of this is understood and woven into the experience. Where the client is – in the long journey between life and death – in the fabric of their social world, included or excluded, valued or not – in the balance of their physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual bodies – is all taken into account as they present – willing to change.
A Shamanic healer will have already done a divination for the client before they present for the treatment – to see what is there in the landscape of the soul’s journey.
And when the client arrives and the process begins – the healer enters this landscape to see what is there – they meet the client as their medicine – their connection with spirit nature – bird, animal, a creature that may swim or crawl – and if that creature is bound or trapped or wounded in that landscape – that deep and primordial landscape – then that is resolved in that world in the service of the client.
The are the earliest navigators of consciousness, skillful to a high degree in journeying and bringing back the resources needed to aid the client in the ‘here and now’ process of their lives.
They have many resources and skills at their disposal to ascertain what has led to the client’s symptoms – as they present to them. No matter what the problem, while addressing those symptoms and restoring balance to the physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual realms of the client – they are always at heart observing the flight of the soul and where the client is in the journey of their life between birth and death.
The Shaman is a healer, a priest or priestess, a medium and story teller, an actor or entertainer, a trickster and prophet, a world builder and sorcerer, a mage and magician and many possibilities besides. There is a great deal of misinformation out there but in truth it is a lens through which the world can be viewed in new and visionary ways and is the oldest medicine ways practiced in human society.
This profound and deep healing will then flow out into the external world of the client – over the next hours, days, weeks, months and years and it continues to flow into the river of their life.
There may things that the client needs to do after the treatment – what is there is there and instructions are given as required however the balance is restored in a deep and powerful way that then allows other things of imbalance in the clients life to fall back into place.
