What is Shamanic Healing?

Shamanic healing is a spiritual and medical practice, based upon the belief that all healing includes a spiritual dimension. Shamans enter altered states of consciousness to communicate with other realms of reality. The shaman’s journey is to help the patient, or community, to rediscover their connection to themselves, nature and spirit.

The shaman is responsible for the health of the individual, as well as the community. This is a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance. The shaman is the ritual leader, herbalist, and mediator between the community and the spirit world. The spiritual healing methods of shamanism are now receiving increased and significant attention in our culture, because shamanic healing affects the energy field of a person. To better understand how a shaman heals, it is important to understand some of the fundamental concepts of shamanism. It is a specific set of methodologies, for accessing the spirit, or energy field of anything, or anyone. We begin to heal by working with an unseen inner spiritual reality, which creates changes, which in turn create changes, which in turn in the seen physical & everyday reality.

The Shamans Essential Perspective

  • Everything is alive.
  • Everything has spirit and awareness.
  • Energy and matter are the same.
  • Everything is vibration.
  • Everything that exists is an energy system within a greater energy system; microcosm and macrocosm.
  • Everything that exists is connected to everything else, the interconnectedness of all things.
  • The unseen inner spiritual reality, affects the visible reality.

Working within this system of perceptions, the shaman strives to restore balance and harmony to the spirit. This can be focused on the individual, the community, or in essence anything that exists. What distinguishes the shaman from other healers are the methods. The journey, or soul flight, allows the shaman to send their consciousness into the spirit world to obtain information and knowledge.

This information is retrieved, and used for further insight or healing. By using shamanic practices, a wide spectrum of healing is possible. Traditional shamanic healing is done by journeying to the beat of a drum or rattle to visit a teaching spirit or power animal for guidance or wisdom. Shamanic healing takes place in many forms, depending on what the spirits recommend.

Shamans employ many different healing methods besides those acquired during the journey, these are herbal medicine, visualisation, hands on healing, the use of aroma, stones, and sometimes basic psychology, what is often referred to as shamanic counselling. The shaman understands the necessity of using both nature and spirit in healing. Any combination of healing methods may be used, it really depends upon the situation.
