What is shamanism and the shaman’s role?

Shamanism is a philosophy and a lifestyle similar to Buddhism in many ways. It includes healing practices for clearing the imprints of trauma from the luminous energy field (LEF) that surrounds the physical body, and that organizes the body in the same way that a magnet organizes iron filings on a piece of glass.
Shamans mediate between the visible world of matter and the invisible world of energy and consciousness. The understanding of the shaman is that what we call reality is simply the projection of a map of the world we carry within us. To change the world, you need to change the map, but the map only changes through sacred ceremony.

Shamans are Earth Keepers—stewards of the garden of nature.

Shamans were and are individuals that can help you come back to your own essential nature. They can help you to see how the ancient models that you follow, and the beliefs that you have about the nature of reality, create your health, create disease. Shamanic healers help create extraordinary health for willing humans so that their lifespan equals their health span and good health can last a lifetime.

Shamanic healing is one of the oldest forms of healing. It has been used by aboriginal people from around the world. Some anthropologists say that the practice dates back as far as 50,000 years.

Shamans work with the body’s energy field also known as aura and the energy centers or chakras. They believe that physical and emotional trauma is stored in the energy field.

Sometimes the stuck energy can manifest in the form of chronic illness, trouble in your personal life,  feelings of depression or being stuck without being able to change your circumstances.

My role as a shamanic practitioner is to remove these imprints from your energy body thereby triggering a healing effect. This can result in a reduction of pain, more energy etc.
