Basically, as a Shamanic Healer you develop the power to contact the non-ordinary worlds.
You journey by trance, maybe blindfold.
You useTrance Drumming – or rattle or chant or whistle or use CD
You use a quite place, smudged or purified.
As a Shaman, you access different worlds, very flexibly defined as:
Upper world: seeking teachers/guides.
Middle world: portals, sacred energies places, woods, spirits of place.
Lower Animal helpers, spirit guides.
Entering these three realms, might involve walking towards the World Tree, and choosing whether to go up to the upper realm or down through the roots to the Lower World.
State your intention as you embark on your journey – but don’t be bound by expectation or purpose
You may meet animals, spirits, guides, gods, guardians: You may Speak to, Get help from, Get healing from those you meet.
In your Journey: you can seek vision, Healing, Removal of intrusion, Soul retrieval (maybe involving Inner Child Work or Family Constellation Work, Curse removal, Fort Holder work, Power animal retrieval, Shape shifting (see quote 1 below), Cleansing, Use of talisman, Contact earth energies – channel from them, Heal an animal, Chakra Healing.
Arrangement for return is important.
Here is a video on the subject of Preparing for your Shamanic Journey:
Contact with Nature is essential: The Web of life: I greet the rising sun over the hills each morning, the sunrise, The four directions, Land, sea and sky
The Shamanic Journey is different from Mysticism because it involves being active in journeying, healing
Avoid: rules, Conceptual over-analysis, the effect of academics/bureaucrats/psychology
Get someone to journey for you if you are too involved in the issue
Develop: Fire in the Head (See Quote 2 below), strengthen The Cauldrons of inspiration, Enter the Hollow Lands.
Quote 1: The Song of Amergin:
I am Wind on Sea,
I am Ocean-wave,
I am Roar of Sea,
I am Stag of Seven Tines,
I am a Hawk on a Cliff,
I am shining tear of the Sun,
I am Fairest among Herbs,
I am Boar for Boldness,
I am Salmon in Pool,
I am a Lake on a Plain,
I am a Hill of Poetry,
I am a Word of Skill,
I am the Point of a Weapon (that pours forth
I am God who fashions Fire for a Head.
Who knows the secrets of the
Who (but I) announces the Ages of the Moon?
Who (but I) know the place where falleth
Who calls the Cattle from the House of Tethra?
On whom do the cattle of Tethra smile?
Who is the troop, the god who fashions edges
in a fortress of gangrene?
(I am) a Song on a Spear,
an Enchantments of Wind.
Quote 2: The Song of Wandering Aengus by WB Yeats:I went out to the hazel wood,
Because a fire was in my head,
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,
And hooked a berry to a thread;
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout.
When I had laid it on the floor
I went to blow the fire a-flame,
But something rustled on the floor,
And someone called me by my name:
It had become a glimmering girl
With apple blossom in her hair
Who called me by my name and ran
And faded through the brightening air.
Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done,
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.
Healing Example 1 : Animal:
15-years old dog got very weak, barely walking around the house, he had blood running from his nose and ear. The vet said that he might have cancer. Made offering of a handful of grain to the spirits asking them to help him heal dog. Drummed above head of dog. With The singing and drumming I was sending thoughts and healing energy. Called upon my power animal, stag, and i “entered” into the dog’s head.After half an hour, I started singing without the drum and with my hands I was “pulling out” the dog’s illness through nose. I “threw it out” in a river and thanked the spirits for helping me. After 2 day’s strong bleeding through nose started and piece of flesh came out of the nose 10 cm long.
Healing Example 2 : Chakra healing:
I scanned the body and felt tense energy and painful emotions above the Heart centre. When I meditated more on the Heart Chakra, I saw a huge encasing concrete round cylinder (about 1 metre in diameter and 1 m high) on the chest. I invited a spirit animal to help me remove the heavy cylinder. I saw him threw it in a volcano and earthquake destroyed it. I saw healing light, sunlight and green flowers planted in the Heart chakra. I felt this horrible encasing concrete thing was a negative programme or energy that blocked the energies from flowing freely, especially from the 2nd to the 4th chakra. Now the client became “open” to the world. She could give and receive, send love. I swept the negative energy from the aura and filled with divine light.
Healing Example 3: Talisman:
Took all the hostile belittle scripts that my family are sending me all my life. Put them into a talisman: a triangle of three twigs that I made and bound together. Buried the triangle in the earth at the foot of the statue of a great hero.
