Shamanic Healing


                      Shamanic Healing


A Shaman is a healer who is able to travel into dimensions of non-ordinary reality (NOR). He may journey through Lower Earth, Middle Earth or Upper Earth (Celestial realms); he travels to bring healing to a person, or his tribe.

He/she (female Shamanka) journeys through time and space mostly using the repetitive beat of drum or rattle, which slows the brainwaves making it easier to vision and work with his spirit guides, ancestors or power animals.

When working with a person the focus will be, not on individual symptoms, but on healing the whole being. The shaman may ask you “When did you stop singing?” or “When was the last time you danced?” The shaman fully recognises the vital importance of these activities for good health to prevail.





As far as we know, most ancient tribes had a Shaman: he was the doctor, priest and magician. Usually highly respected because he could ‘go’ to places where no-one else went; he was a powerful force.


 The position of shaman in the tribe would often be inherited from a long line of shaman ancestors or, as is the case now, ancient souls are incarnating into their present earthwalk with the knowledge and ability to be shaman.


 The whole of nature plays a vital role in the life of a shaman, including the Earth Mother and Father Sky.

Everything has a soul: Grandfather Sun, Grandmother Moon, the Fire people, the Water people, the Mother Earth, Father Sky, Sister Wind, the two-leggeds, the four leggeds, the creepy crawlies, the flying people, the standing people (trees), the plants, and stones, (the record-keepers of the planet) - everything is acknowledged and respected. Every being that has form has consciousness.

The four directions are honoured and have their attributes. By honouring East, South, West and North every day we orient ourselves on the Earth Mother. We are ‘tuning in’ and ‘connecting’.                                                       


  The shaman journeys in non-ordinary reality using sound (didge,drum, rattle, voice) as, in altered states of conscuiousness, we seek healing for our patient.

Certainly our Spirit Helpers (power animals, spirit guides, ancestors) play a very prominent part in the healing. 

We are all an intrinsic part of Nature, we cannot live seperately from it and survive.

 By learning to acknowledge how precious and vital is our connection to nature we are taking our part in helping the great Mother - our Earth.
