I strongly believe that shamanic healing is necessary for every individual and that it’s not enough to just see reiki masters, cranio-sacral therapists or life coaches. I hope that sharing my experience will help others open up to shamanism and to recognize the immense healing capacities of the practice.
When I first started learning about shamanism (at least in this life), I found myself very drawn to the practice, knowing that it would be a very important mode of healing for me. I’ve noticed that many people, even those who are interested in other spiritual/energetic healing methods, are rather apprehensive about shamanism, believing it to involve dark magic or evil rituals. In this post, I want to share one of my personal shamanic healing experiences to bring the practice to the fore and to encourage others to try it out. There’s no devil worship and no voodoo involved. I strongly believe that shamanic healing is necessary for every individual and that it’s not enough to just see reiki masters, cranio-sacral therapists or life coaches.

Regardless of your religious or spiritual background, this statement holds true, as our bodies are the vessels in which our souls are anchored during this lifetime, and as such, we should take the utmost care to provide the best possible environment for our spirits. As spiritual beings, we are not defined by our bodies and these particular vehicles will not last forever, but that does not mean that we should not take care of them and treat them well during this lifetime. In fact, the better we treat our bodies, the more our spirits will thrive in this particular incarnation. Continue reading “Vehicles for the Divine, Part One: Fuel for the Soul”
Throughout my early life, I struggled with a number of different health issues and on many occasions I found myself staring into space and asking “Why me?” Like many others in North America, I developed a weight problem as a child that carried into my teenage years and early adulthood. Partly due to my sensitive and empathic nature, I was consecutively misdiagnosed with a slew of mental disorders which led to an adolescence of pharmaceutical numbness after my doctors decided to prescribe me different medications to combat the perceived afflictions. In an effort to fill a void within myself, I found comfort in junk foods, cigarettes, drugs, and alcohol during this time. That period lasted until my early twenties, when I began to realize that I would end up in an early grave if I continued along that path.
