shamanism spiritual healing

We are reverting back to holistic and ancient notions of healing used in the Hellenistic and other indigenous mysteries, truer than the dichotomies modern science would have us indulge in.

Note the wisdom of the Eleusinian mysteries. Dr Hoeller who lectured on the gnostic and Eleusinian mysteries maintained the adepts of these mysteries lost their fear of death but regarded their involvement as highly secretive. In these times much more is revealed. Dream time regression is often used by the indigenous cultures often more so by the Aborigines,so I am informed. Soul intrusion(s) as chronic traditions have been a common plague of many for years and their removal is healing indeed.The rituals used to effect the below referenced states of the soul may be unconsciously or subliminally apprehended but nonetheless real for such apprehending.Holistic shifts in consciousness through exploring the unconscious was done by Freud but not in this manner, but in a pseudo scientific frame of reference. Ibbur or soul attachment may be a multiple function of healing to accomplish a completion of what the soul couldn't accomplish previously? Note the Kabbalistic studies and exercises are similar in their goals . Has this been semantics all the while?

The Shamanic Healing Institute is open to all people who seek guidance, healing,
or relief, from spiritual unrest manifested in mental, emotional or physical
symptoms. The Institute provides healing services using techniques selected by
the Shaman for their effectiveness and synergistic effect for the client. For a detailed brochure, click here.
The Shamanic practitioner uses healing ceremony and
selects the most appropriate energy medicine techniques. The Shamans of the
Institute have acquired many sacred healing rituals to facilitate the
elimination of dis-ease and restore harmony and integrity. A typical session
includes an interview/assessment of the concern/issue. The practitioner
determines the location of the source of dissonance and then disengages the
energy form. A healing ritual is performed to alleviate the discomfort, pain or
symptom(s). Session(s) conclude with further directions and a blessing to
complete the healing.
Divination involves a reading of your
luminous energy body. You are given information on your past, present, and
future. Subjects addressed may include Spiritual Growth, Finances, Health,
Relationships, Career, Past Lives, Relocation, Soul's Purpose, Soul Wounds, and
Your Questions.
Soul Retrieval
Designed by Paul M. Sivert, L.C.P.C.
Cross-Cultural Shamanic PractitionerThe intent of this ceremony is to heal soul
loss by gifting soul elements, medicine gifts and a power animal to the
Client.Indication for soul retrieval is soul loss.
Soul loss may be expressed by
a person as feeling or thinking that something is missing, they don’t feel whole
or their empty inside and they don’t know how to get it back, though they have
tried other therapies or intervention strategies. Behavioral health intervention
doesn’t heal soul loss. There are wounds to the soul due to experiences in the
person’s life that causes a part of their essence to be shut off to them
, or
lost to them in some way. At times, someone may make an erroneous, unconscious
bargain to give a piece of their soul in exchange for what is perceived as
necessary to their survival, i.e., love, attention, protection, etc
. It is
important to understand that these decisions usually are not thought of at the
time as involving the soul and may not be made consciously. They often occur at
a very young age without a conceptual understanding of the bargain being made.
Additionally, a person may not remember when a piece of their soul was taken or
“lost.”Soul loss may occur in the present life or may be carried over from a
past life. It is safe to say that most people will incur some amount of soul
loss throughout their lifetime, though most often it is out of the person’s
awareness. Soul Retrieval is a healing process of returning the energy the
essence of you and what’s yours back to you.
It is possible for a person to
function without knowledge of what’s missing. Traditionally, it is accepted that
only Shamans initiated into a Shamanic tradition and trained in the application
of the soul retrieval ceremony are qualified to perform soul retrievals. It is
recommended that others not attempt this procedure. The function and
responsibility of the Shaman is to know where to journey to the most appropriate
spiritual landscape for retrieving the energy of the person’s missing soul or
essence so it may be retrieved and gifted to the person. Soul Retrieval Ceremony
is a complicated healing process that brings positive outcomes to the person
mentally, emotionally and physically, and often takes more than one session to
I have been providing the Soul Retrieval Ceremony with incredible

delay the Soul Retrieval Ceremony has the potential to heal and change you life
is the removal of a spiritual intrusion from
an individual that manifests as the existence of a chronic condition, usually in
a physical form. The Shaman performs a healing ceremony with you to extract
(remove) the spiritual intrusion(s). Extraction may be performed on homes and
work settings.
Past Life Regression Therapy
The objective is to heal a
karmic lesson by utilizing past life, age, pre-natal, or dreamtime regression.
The regression technique has been found to be an effective method to access
memories from the unconsciousness, that when processed create a holistic shift
in consciousness.
The structured protocol is safe and relaxing
while providing an opportunity for the subconscious to receive a suggestion for
change. Some of the applications of hypnosis are to change negative/addictive
behaviors, (i.e.) smoking, overeating, alcoholism and stress to behaviors that
promote a healthy lifestyle.

The word shaman comes from the language of a tribe in Siberia, according to Mircea Eliade, a scholar of religion, a shaman is a man or woman who "journeys" in an altered state of consciousness. Thus, shamanism is the application of what the shaman does.
In his book The Spirit of Shamanism, Roger N. Walsh, M.D., PhD. defines Shamanism as follows: "Shamanism can be defined as a family of traditions whose Practitioners focus on voluntarily entering altered states of consciousness in which they experience themselves or their spirit[s], traveling to other realms at will, and interacting with other entities in order to serve their community." There are many important phrases or key terms included in this definition. The first of which is "traditions." Traditions according to the dictionary are beliefs that are handed down [to the next generation] because of their effectiveness. In the shamanic context, these beliefs are being applied to spiritual healing, which may have an impact on the emotional/mental and physical aspects [bodies] of the individual as well. The shamanic traditions are not surprisingly different from culture to culture setting. This leads to the speculation that these traditions have an original source. .

The shamanic journey is the most common practice of the traditions. The journey is usually induced by rhythmic drumming or other percussion sound, a rattle for example. The uses of the shamanic journey are many: such as diagnosing or treating illness, for acquisition of power through the interaction with spirits, i.e., power animals, spiritual teachers and angels. It is vital that the shaman maintain a relationship with their spiritual helpers as to receive instruction and information to help the patient.
The next key word in the definition is "voluntarily." The shaman must have mastered the experience of contacting spiritual entities to receive information that will be helpful to their patient and themselves, whatever the situation may be. A major skill that is acquired in the training process is spirit vision. This skill involves the development of a capability to organize, understand and communicate with the visionary data that one is presented with
while in an altered state of consciousness at will.

Some teachers instruct on the ability to be in two worlds simultaneously. The worlds are revealed to the shaman when journeying into the altered state of consciousness. Carlos Castaneda termed these states "nonordinary reality." In his book The Way of the Shaman, Michael Harner writes "...altered state of consciousness and learned perspective that characterize shamanic work... involves not only a 'trance' or a transcendent state of awareness, but a learned awareness of shamanic methods and assumptions while in an altered state." The experience in the shaman's universe is the existence of three worlds: upper, middle and lower, which are joined in relationship by spiritual energy more than by physical properties. Dr. Walsh describes, "...central axis takes three main forms, all of them common to diverse cultures and myths... the first is the common. the 'cosmic mountain' at the center of the earth. The second is the 'world pillar' that many hold up the sky. The third is the highly symbolic 'world tree' symbol of life, fertility and sacred regeneration...." For the shaman, the multilayered worlds traveled through the altered state of consciousness are a direct experience. The last key word pertaining to this definition is "Serve." Connie Newton, my teacher of the Integrated Awareness Technique is constantly reminding us that as healers we must serve. To learn the knowledge is not enough. We must use our healing capabilities for the good of others and ourselves. Shamans are committed to the art of healing to the people of the community. The practice of these healing traditions is often referred to as energy medicine. The goal of energy medicine is to provide a healing to the recipient. The format of a healing is the ceremony where the shaman applies his or her healing protocols which have passed down from the practitioner's teacher, from generation to generation therefore establishing the traditions. The knowledge is ancient but it is always growing or evolving. Thus, the shamans of today practice energy medicine traditions that have evolved in their effectiveness and practicality.
Shamanism is an ongoing expanding body of energy medicine that is rooted in tradition. The shaman applies the energy medicine protocols for the healing of the people he or she serves.
