Heart Medicine - Shamanic Healing
Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice. The main principle of shamanism is that everything that exists is interconnected into the Web of Life, as everything that exists is alive and has a Spirit (Energy).
The shaman has often been referred to as "the wounded healer". This indicates that the shaman has herself passed through some illness or crisis, and in the process she has become stronger and wiser.
The Shaman sees two main reasons for illness. The patient either has too much energy or is missing energy (power or soul loss). Various techniques are used, depending on the personal needs of the individual.
Shamanic healing is a holistic system of healing which assists the natural tendency of the body to restore balance and heal itself. All symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person. It is dis-harmony which causes mental, emotional or the physical manifestation of dis-ease.
Different sounds, rattles and drums are used to raise vibrational energy and increase healing energy of the person.
