What is Shamanic Healing?

A Shamanic practitioner views illness holistically by tracking one’s alignment of Mind, Body and Spirit. This balance is essential for our health and relates not only to our own health (relationship to self) but also to all health (relationship to others and the world around us).

Specifically, the practitioner looks at the whole system and track the symptom to it’s source. My belief is that all illness has a spiritual origin, which is based in some trauma that the client has experienced. This trauma may leave an energetic imprint and if left unhealed or untended may manifest into a symptom. Practitioners work with the client to jointly heal the spiritual origins of illness.


What is the Illumination process?

The physical body is surrounded by a Luminous Energy Field (like an aura), which is an invisible matrix that holds the imprint of all our karmic, personal and ancestral memories, traumas and wounds.  Illumination is the shamanic clearing of the negative imprints in the Luminous Energy Field.  The technique is an ancient energy healing technique that comes from the Q’ero shamans of Peru, the descendants of the Inca.


An Illumination may be helpful when you feel you are:

·       Stuck in a behavioral pattern which continues to repeat itself

·       Struggling to heal from traits (health or emotional) that are part of your ancestry

·       Haunted by emotional traumas of your past that do not respond well to other healing modalities


In the Inca tradition of Illumination, the imprints to the Luminous Energy Field appear as sluggish energy around the chakras. During the process, the heavy emotional energy of the imprint is drained through the chakra, then the imprint itself is erased through the use of focused intention and breath.


Preparation before and after a session:

Schedule your appointment so you have time afterwards for yourself.

Having a clear intention and desire for healing (as well as being willing to let go of old patterns that are unhealthy) strengthens the effects of the healing.


Identify for yourself the following:

·       What is not working in my life?

·       What feels out of balance?

·       What is missing, or what qualities have I lost which I long to reclaim?

·       Are there unhealthy patterns in my life, which keep repeating?

·       Are there people in my life to which I have an unhealthy connection?

·       Are there places in my body where I am regularly feeling pain?

·       Does my life feel out of control?

·       Are there themes in my ancestry, which are getting repeated in my life?

·       Why am I feeling called to seek spiritual healing now?


It is important to avoid alcohol or recreational drugs for 24 hours before and after your illumination. After your session it may take 1-3 days to fully integrate the information you have received. Be sure to take time afterwards to nurture yourself.
