Support through nature-based spiritual practices, known as shamanic counseling, are included in the SpiritedScience® Programs. Shamanism is a way of life, and training in shamanic practices from an experienced shamanic practitioner can be empowering and healing for mind, body, and spirit. Here’s some basic information on possible methods utilized by the counselor:
Training in the Shamanic Journey
The shamanic journey is undertaken by the client in order to realize one’s own personal spiritual power. You can discover your own ability to obtain extraordinary, yet very practical, spiritual wisdom and answers to important personal questions. The counselor helps and guides in ordinary reality. This is usually a very powerful and empowering experience.
Shamanic divination is performed by the counselor. It involves journeying to non-ordinary reality (the Otherworld) to ask compassionate helping spirits for help and guidance, or using another means of divination such as tarot cards or a reading through a natural object. Physical contact is not necessary for this service; it can be set up through telephone contact and then discussed with the client in a follow-up call. It can be included as part of a counseling session if preferred.
Shamanic healing is often used in support of conventional medicine, both allopathic and/or holistic. Depending on the issue, it has also been utilized alone very successfully to heal both people and animals. Though I prefer that humans to come to the office in person, at this time of social distancing, shamanic healing sessions can be done on Zoom. I usually perform shamanic healing on horses and other animals from a distance, so this is just an extension of that work.
Some types of shamanic healing that I perform:
- Power Animal Retrieval (restoring lost energy)
- Extraction of energy intrusions
- Soul Retrieval
- Curse Unraveling
This FAQs page gives some information on these methods (toward the bottom).
