Shamanic healers, which are often portrayed in the media and our culture as “witch doctors”, are actually spiritual healers. Much like a medical doctor resets a bone after we’ve fractured it, a shamanic healer restores the spiritual force field around us. Most of us, either through difficult life experiences or trauma, develop limiting beliefs and negative energy. Shamanic healers believe that certain parts of our souls leave us after these experiences, which can prevent us from experiencing the emotions we so long to experience. Feelings of joy, vitality, and prosperity, become absent in our lives and become even harder to access over time. Shamanic healers, however, can easily (and with your permission only, of course), identify these holes and in a sense, patch them up.
In reality, finding a shamanic healer is not so different from seeking out a therapist or life coach. Much like these other individuals, their purpose is to heal you; to get you to overcome the challenges you face and work through those challenges so that you may access the best version of yourself. You may have to stretch your mind just a teensy bit, but the outcome could be well worthwhile.
Here are some pretty cool things about shamanic healing that may get your wheels turning:
1. Shamanic Healing has existed for thousands of years! Like many other healing practices that have existed for centuries, like acupuncture, meditation, prayer, and yoga, shamanic healing’s efficacy is backed up by the sheer volume of people that have benefited from it. Think back to before you started any practice that you had some doubts about. Shamanic Healing, like that other thing, may have to that same “experience it to believe it” quality.
2. Shamanic healers go through an extensive training period that looks slightly different from a conventional education or certification process. It includes intense self-healing practices and self discovery in addition to learning actual skills and principles of shamanic healing. Shamanic Healers can participate in a workshop that varies in time, but usually lasts about a year. In this course, healers in training begin with shedding their own beliefs (the ones that are limiting and self-sabotaging) and work toward making room for new and empowered beliefs. The training is complete with healers working toward finding their soul’s purpose.
3. Shamanic Healing happens at the subconscious level, at a person’s energetic field, and uncovers blocks that we not even be aware of. If you’re into spirituality of any kind (yoga and meditation included), you know the power of energy. The law of attraction dictates that when you put good energy into the universe, that good energy will surround you. Even those of us who are attuned to our energy and the energy of others could benefit from what happens at the subconscious level, because we couldn’t access it otherwise!
4. Your openness to Shamanic Healing can be compared to your openness to another culture that you know of but haven’t ever experienced before. Just because something is foreign to us does not mean we cannot ever understand or accept it. If you have tried many different forms of healing and have yet to find relief, an openness to something new may help you to uncover the true power of spiritual healing.
