The Shamanic Journey
As a shamanic practitioner I use the journey technique to allow a part of myself to travel outside time and space into non-ordinary reality to access universal information. My power animals and I gather that information and bring it back to you. The journey can be used to answer questions, choose which techniques to assist healing, deliver spiritual prescriptions and to gather lost power.
Power Animal Retrieval
A reunion with a spiritual power animal can improve life on many levels by providing increased strength, guidance, will power and comfort. The spirits of wild animals work with me, guiding me through journeys, giving advice and performing healings. Often the first way a modern shamanic practitioner assists a client is by retrieving a power animal for them. The client proceeds to bond with the animal by honoring it in ordinary reality, visiting it during quiet meditation, and calling on it for assistance with daily life.
Shamanic Practitioners believe that when a person suffers from a trauma, a part of the soul splits off and no longer contributes to the person’s whole being. Instead it stays fixed in the event, but in non-ordinary reality. This dissociation is called soul loss, and it often results in loss of memory, depression, fatigue, addictions or feelings of incompleteness, or injuries that never fully heal. This disengagement makes it easier to survive traumas such as accidents, abuse, or emotional disturbances. Children can suffer soul loss from events that are traumatic to them, but may seem trivial to adults. Soul loss can also occur when another person holds onto a part of us, and doesn’t let go . Once the traumatic event is over complete healing can occur when the soul part that is missing is returned. I assist this event by journeying into non-ordinary reality and, with the help of spirit allies, find the missing soul parts and bring them back to where they belong. Following this a period of integration unfolds, in which a reacquaintance with the returned soul parts occurs, and old wounds begin healing. This process often unfolds over several months.
We all have parts of ourselves, physical, mental, emotional & spiritual, that we would like to strengthen. With the help of spirit allies I can assist you to temporarily release a vulnerable part of yourself and take it to a sacred place for healing and strengthening. After a period of weeks or months this part is retrieved and returned to you in a more powerful state. This technique has been used successfully to help people overcome addictions, phobias, panic & anxiety disorders, and stress related illnesses.
Misplaced energies can be removed from an individual and delivered to a neutral place through the extraction process. With the assistance of my power animals in non-ordinary reality we search for these extra energies (negative thought forms, aggressive emotions, misplaced souls, etc.), remove them and then fill the newly void space with harmonious energies. Symptoms of the need for extraction can include persistent sickness that won’t heal, localized soreness, and sudden intense emotions that won’t fade.
