Let's see, so as in Reiki, shamanic healing does employ energy healing, but there are many kinds of energies (and they can also be called differently), which can be used and it is all done in various contexts, which can take into account such things as your particular trauma, a particular part of you, which needs healing, be it a body part or a part of your soul, maybe it's targeted at your outdated/destructive beliefs, soul contracts, etc, etc. To explain in more detail would take many many pages :)
This is just a small part of shamanic healing though. There is much more involved, such as your soul, your spirit guides, your ancestors, your past lives, your karma, your soul world, so to speak. And that's just your stuff. I guess you could say that the shamanic healer is a kind of liaison, who takes you to different parts of yourself and who invokes the various appropriate energies, souls, and systems to help heal your issue.
How can you prepare for a shamanic healing session?
First of all, there are many different approaches and one healer's session is not the same as another healer's session.
For my session, all you need to do is to try to be clear about what the particular problem is: what do you want to change? What do you feel is blocking you from doing that change yourself? What in life do you expect to improve as a result of that change?
Just a few examples:
However, many times, when we need healing, we can't figure out clearly what we need healing on, and that's ok. You can just describe what in your life is not going the way you want it and I would be the one to clearly see what issue is currently presenting itself for healing and I would provide the healing for that.
Just to make it clear, for my session, you will not be expected to enter a trance state or anything. I'm the one, who has developed this ability (and not just in this life) and I will be using it. I don't need drums or substances or anything to get there. I just have it since childhood and then I developed it as an adult. You don't need to do anything like that because I'm the healer and it's my role to do it.
Is it safe? I'm not sure where you may think the danger may come from. You're not expected to do anything, like get into a trance state or anything. So no danger can come from that. If you're concerned about any other source of danger for this kind of healing, please specify where you think it might come from.
Thank for the question and sorry for my late reply again :)
Thank for your question. Yes, self esteem and fear of communication is a common problem today and shamanism can definitely help with that. In my shamanic healing approach, I would help you connect to the origin of why you have this particular issue, and where is the origin of your fears related to that. We then proceed to healing the reasons why you have this issue and fears.
Sometimes, the origin is really close, like a certain event or a series of experiences in our early years of development, and sometimes it goes back deep, like in one or more of our past lives. Just like in this life we can heal the reasons and origins of the issues and problems we have, we can do the same for past lives and experiences.
Looking into past life trauma and issues can help heal things that don't seem to be directly related to a particular event/problem in this life time, although it's usually connected because it's a complex system and one thing is usually connected to another.
We can also work on clearing the karma that is relevant to that particular issue, so that this general kind of problem can be released and so that you can be more of your authentic self, be aligned with your true self and express yourself freely in your authentic way.
I hope this answered your question :)
