Honoring the world of form and spirit; surrendering to endless death and rebirth; this is the source of all healing — the shaman’s power.”
— Theodore Tsaousidis
Shamanism is the most ancient spiritual and healing practice known to man. In fact, shamanism and shamanic healing date back to over 100,000 years and have been practiced all across the globe — well before our current technologies of communication were possible.
Following the Muisca traditions of Ancestral Medicine and Shamanism to treat and cure traumas, addictions, and states of mind, body and spirit.
What Is Shamanic Healing?
My individual Shamanic Healings combined different massage methods also the intake of Shamanic Medicine plant called ( Hopa Osca ) very similar to Rapeh in other traditions but the not the same to allow me to send the owner( Patient) away of the house while I can clean the house(body). Balancing the Chakras and creating a new way to feel the body to a better understanding of the emotions and process of the impressions of the mind .
The most common Massage Techniques used in combination with some Shamanic Medicines to integrate the Shamanic Healing are Holistic Massage or Ayurvedic Thai Massage
In the shamanic perspective, true healing — spiritual healing — cannot be done on a physical level. Healing means to return to wholeness, and returning to wholeness is purely an inside job. Spiritual healing addresses the root — the spiritual — problems that cause dis-ease.
Throughout the past years I have led, cared for and protected many Spiritual Ceremonies especially with Ancestral Medicines where a large number of souls have benefited breaking traumas and addictions.
My training in Shamanism is based on the experience and work with ancestral plants in Colombia, Peru, and with the continuous study with the Muisca Grandfather of Ayahuasca (Yage in Colombia) Mamo Comba Nymy Quene, as part of my anthropological work , I have visited Siberia ( Rusia) spending time wih the local shamans and their traditions, as Outiside Toronto in Canada.
I reconnect with the power of the healing plants of the Amazon after going through two episodes of Cancer in my life. I discovered the fascinating world that has really helped me to be back to my tribal culture, honoring my ancestors, helping the collective to rise the collective consciousness .
In my experience with ancestral medicines, it has led me to study Neurology, Neuroplasticity, Epigenetics, where I have found great scientific support for everything learned in shamanism, I attend continuously long workshops such as Joe Dispenza an acclaimed Neurologist, in 2017 in Dublin.
In the same time my exploration has led me to experience many Ancestral Medicines apart of Ayahuasca ( Yage in Colombia ) such as Kambo, , Yopo, Sapo Bufo Alvarius among others.
♥ Participating in a sacred ceremony helps us to connect with our higher self, to live more courageously on the planet. Dissolve obsolete blocks in our body, mind and energy San Pedro and the other plants open a path of return, returning to our true nature before modernity and mental conditioning.
It is important to note that shamans believe that despite their great accessibility to the spirit realm, all healing is self-healing. A shamanic healer knows how to move and manipulate the energy of another’s body and can pass wisdom through from the spirit realm, but true healing must take place inside the spirit of the individual.
In other words, a person must be willing and ready to take full responsibility for his or her own healing— there is no magic pill that lies outside of one’s spiritual body. A shaman can be an outstanding tutor, but will not give all of the answers. It is also important to note that shamanic healing is not to be a substitute for conventional medical or psychological services, but is to instead be worked with adjunct to.
All of that being said, there are two main types of shamanic healing practices: a shamanic healing session, and a shamanic plant medicine healing ceremony. The main difference between these two types of healing is that in the latter healing practice, the clients goes on a journey with the shaman.
Shamanic healings are energy healings where the I work with the energetic being of the person. I combined my experiences as a Masseur with the shamanic Medicines and tools. The healings may also sometimes involve a Shamanic Journeys where the person and me may go into a altered state of consciousness for a certain purpose, be it to find their power, resolve issues from the past, meet their guardians, teachers, ancestors and release tensions and energy that is stuck . One of the aims of the healings and the journeys is not only to help people, but also to empower them to continue on their healing journey themselves.
A typical healing session can take place at the therapy room, whichever way, the area must be quiet, safe, and relaxing. A “sacred space” is created. This space is dedicated to opening, releasing, and healing. Effects such as a candle display, incense or palo santo (holy wood) burning, an altar with crystals or special stones, soothing music, and a comfortable place to lie down on are included.
The first thing that will happen is an open discussion openly about the different aspects of life ; for this, I will hold a respectable, non-judgmental space. We may discuss the your history, and/or how your soul is feeling at the present moment. I will inspire and encourage the client to dig deeper into their story and really open up as they both hunt for truth and healing potential. I firmly believe to pay more attention what the person is not saying rather 100% verbal communication as behind the silent words there are multiple answers useful to the gateway of freedom.
These conversations are usually effortless and productive, as I am trained in fostering and nurturing that safe space, and the client should willing to be transparent in order to heal and go beyond
Next, they move into the ceremonial work. At this time, the client can lie on their back, ( depend the massage ) for Ayurvedic Thai Massage wearing loose and comfortable clothing. I will then assess their various energy centers (usually found along the 7 chakras of the body). At this point, I can sense where unnecessary energy is being stored, where stagnant energy can be released, and where empowering energy can be placed.
The Shamanic Journey
When the energy/ massage work is complete, I will then describe to the client what they may experience during the following part of the session: tingling and warming sensations, meditative-like states of consciousness, an emotional release, and/or the energy of the spiritual communion itself.
I then ready to access non-ordinary reality, and proceeds to induce a trance (theta brainwave state) via rhythmic percussion (generally using a drum and/or rattle).
Then, there are the shaman journeys…
Within this shamanic journey, I connect with his or her spirit helpers/guides and travels through the 3 different worlds (as mentioned previously) in search of wisdom and healing for the client.
While in this non-physical trance, I do also do either hands-on or hands-off energy work through the massage, by channeling energy from the spirit world and moving it throughout the client’s body accordingly. This portion of the session typically lasts about an hour or a bit more with the integration.
Integration: an Essential Step
Following a shamanic healing session, many deeply rooted energies have been shifted. Therefore, for the days, weeks, and even months following the session, it is advised that clients take special note of how they are feeling — they can do this by keeping a journal to keep track of progress for future insight and guidance.
The client will normally feel changes and shifts in their energy, and need not fret, for this is all part of the healing process — toxins that have long been stored in one’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual body have been released, as well as unhealthy habitual thinking. I will advice to listen to and accept the energetic changes one may feel following a session; any discomfort will pass and new, vibrant, life energy will take its place.
For the following months after a session, I will frequently check in with the client to see how everything is enfolding for them and to offer any comfort and/or additional guidance that may be needed.
Is Shamanic Healing Right For You?
I have now discussed what shamanism and shamanic healing is, as well as the two main types of shamanic healing methods. Now, it is time to discuss whether or not shamanic healing is right for you.
Below are characteristics of someone who may find it wildly appropriate to explore shamanic healing:
Possesses a strong desire to create more meaningful relationships with oneself, others, nature, and the spirit world;Is ready to move forward beyond old thought patterns, limiting belief systems, and unhealthy habits that no longer serve them;Is ready to dig deep down and willing to seek genuine self-inquiry into order to move into a greater self; Wants to create real, positive, and lasting change within themselves but feels somehow “blocked” and wishes for guidance on how to move forward;

Is willing to put forth the effort needed to fully integrate new wisdom and healing;.
