What is Energy Healing?
Energy healing is found in all ancient cultures throughout the world. It is a non-invasive gentle, holistic therapy that encompasses the whole body, mind, and spirit. Energy healing taps into the universal life force energy that flows through every living thing in the universe which is known as Prana (India), Chi (China) and Mana (Polynesia). an Ki (Japan).
Energy Healing is a gentle, non-invasive technique whereby the practitioner uses his/her hands to clear, energise and balance the human and environmental energy fields thus promoting physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and healing.
It complements conventional health care and is also used in collaboration with many other approaches to health and healing. The healing energy provides fast, natural and effective relief from an extensive list of ailments including stress, depression, muscle tension, adrenal glands, physical pain (especially back and neck pain), emotional trauma, insomnia and illness.
Vibrational Energetic Healing
Reiki which is now a popular form of energetic healing originated in Japan. Since everything is made up of energy, all types of healing ultimately involve using this life force energy. The goal of Energy Healing is to restore harmony, energy and balance within the human energy system through usually via the hands either touching or being placed above the body. The energy flows from the palm chakra’s to the client’s body or energy field that surrounds the body. There are many different types of Energetic Vibrational Healing techniques and these include, but are not limited to, Reiki, Spiritual Healing, and Shamanic Healing. Healer can also use sound, crystals, aromatherapy and flower essences.

Shamanic Healing Ceremonies
Shamanic healing ceremonies are found in most indigenous cultures world wide. Core shamanic healing teaches the essence of Shamanic practices rather than borrow any rites, rituals, ceremonies, or cosmologies of any specific tribes. Shamanic practitioners work directly with spirit, they travel to other non-ordinary realms or worlds in Shamanic trance which is theta brainwave consciousness to gain information or for healing work.
The Shamanic experience
Shamanic practitioners often use drumming, sound or movement as a way to enter into the theta brainwave shamanic consciousness to journey for information gathering or healing. The client doesn’t journey and isn’t required to do anything except receive healing. Shamanic practitioners will work with the client fully clothed often lying on a massage table.
Power Animal Retreival
Power animals are transcendent guardian spirits that provide protection, assistance, wisdom, direction and companionship. A Retrieval ceremony is a shamanic process of empowerment, inviting an animal spirit to be with us. The Shamanic practitioner will enter into a trance state, journey to meet your power animal spirit and bring it back for you. Once you have received your power animal, try connecting to the power animal, spend time with it, ask the power animal to appear in a dream or through visualisation and shamanic journey methods.
Often, power animals show up for a short time periods perhaps with specific teachings, while others stick around for our entire life.
In situations where there has been shock, trauma, an accident, illness or surgery part of the spirit or soul will leave the body or dissociate to protect the human body from overwhelming harm either physical, or emotional. We often describe this as feeling un-grounded, beside ourselves, floating, or not fully present. Psychologists and counsellors are familiar with the effects of trauma and subsequent dissociated states. In some cases, the soul part will return on its own, but if it doesn’t know how to, or feels unsafe – the shaman may need to assist the return of that missing piece. We may have several missing soul pieces depending on our life experiences.
We may also voluntarily hand over part of our soul through wanting to remain connected to a loved one, trying to protect someone, or attempting to merge with another. Also someone else may want us to stay connected to them so this would be a non- voluntary connection on our part.
Shamanic Aura Cleansing & Extraction
We are all affected by the energy around us and can pick up emotional states from others, these emotional states affect our health. Shamans believe that your emotion takes the form of energy and can be stored throughout the body and eventually lead to illness. This is described as miss-placed energy that doesn’t belong or intrusion energy that is best cleared. Other types of intrusions could be the energy left behind from an injury, surgery or transplants. Intrusions can be self created from suppressed emotions or negative states of mind. Picked up from other people or the environment either consciously or subconsciously. directed at you by other people either intentionally or otherwise from negative thoughts, emotions or words.
Psychopomp (Death Doula)
Psychopomp is a practitioner who guides spirits in the afterlife. A death doula can assist individuals or families in conscious dying, and end of life transitioning to other realms at the time of death or shortly afterwards. The Shamanic practitioner will enter into Shamanic consciousness and travel into other realms to assist the spirits of deceased persons to move over to a safe place at the time of or shortly after death.
Space clearing can be used for releasing low vibration energy, negativity and spirits that are stuck in this world. The Shamanic practitioner will locate and clear energy that doesn’t belong, has become stuck and find any spirits attached to a space and help them transition over.
