A Shamanic Practitioner is.. “someone who acts as a bridge between the shamanic indigenous world and the modern world and borrows the medicine and wisdom of these shamanic people to bring healing and balance.”
But what is a Shamanic Healing?
According to The Power Path ”Shamanic healing is a spiritual and medical practice based upon the belief that all healing includes a spiritual dimension.”
A shamanic practitioner is trained to recognize that all illnesses have a spiritual component and that everything is connected–the spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental. Therefore, if one of these systems is out of balance the disharmony can be felt within the entire energetic field or web. The goal of healing is to create balance within this web and create harmony where the spirit is suffering. A shamanic practitioner is trained to step into the unseen world and locate the cause of the disconnection from Spirit.
Practitioners and their training vary greatly and some specialize in soul retrieval, cord cutting, drum journeying, extraction, etc. In shamanic healing, the practitioner will often use certain tools to assist in moving the unwanted or blocked energy.
