You might wonder what brought me to try shamanic healing for my son.
He was a year and a half at the time when we first tried shamanic healing. By that time, we had tried lots of different modalities of healing, so I was open to trying just about anything. I was open to energy healing anyway, so it wasn’t a huge stretch for us to try shamanic healing.
But, it was a dream that led me to actually make an appointment. (Interestingly, during my session with the Peruvian shaman last month, he confirmed that Spirit speaks to me in dreams).
I dreamt that Moses was taking a train ride with a friend of mine, Mark, who had recently completed his shamanic training. They were going on a journey together. In the dream, Mark told me quite casually that he could easily remove Moses’ energetic blockages, if I wanted him to. He just needed my permission. I could actually see Moses’ energetic blockages in my dream. I kind of stammered in my dream, telling Mark that of course he had my permission to remove the energy blocks… (duh…)
And then I woke up.
I knew right away that it was a message for me to seek shamanic healing for Moses. It was such a rich dream in so many levels. The train ride, I feel symbolized Moses’ healing journey, and is also symbolic of shamanic healing give that one of the shamanic healing techniques involves “journeying to Spirit”. Also true on lots of other levels in that shamanic healers can remove energy blocks, and when those energy blocks are removed, health on a physical level can follow. It also alluded to one of the main ethics of shamanic healing: that a shamanic healer needs to receive permission prior to engaging in any healing work.
And, so began our journey of seeking healing from shamanic healers. Moses and I consulted with three main shamanic healers over the course of the last four years. More recently, I have been doing my own journeys and have seeking my own healing through my own communication with Spirit. I believe that in the beginning, shamanic healers act as a bridge and a conduit between this realm and the world of Spirit. Ultimately, each individual is empowered to have their own communications and relationship with Spirit (through prayer, through meditation, through breath work, through dreams, through dance and music, through art, through yoga, through nature, through journalling — really in whatever way one finds that they can connect with the divine).
The shamanic healings have been deep and profound, the results of which have percolated through my whole family (my parents, my siblings, my husband and my son). When one engages in shamanic healing and when “energetic blocks” are removed, an entire family shifts and heals together. That being said, in my son’s case, I feel that shamanic healing alone wasn’t enough to heal his genetic immune disorder. I believe that shamanic healing, in combination with Heilkunst homeopathy, were together instrumental in the creating the huge shifts in his health that we have witnessed.
