Shamanic Dreamtime Healing - the Transformational Medicine Way
In general, regardless of the number of educational seminars, those who practice today's alternative
healing arts are not shamanic healers. On the other hand, most traditional shaman/a are natural
True shamanic healing requires ability to enter shamanic
consciousness, the 'dreamtime' of non-ordinary reality beyond mental imagination to establish rapport with energetic
plant intelligence, benefic spiritual forces and people's soul/spirit. At the deeper levels of pure shamanic consciousness
we are essentially swimming in an infinite field of supreme intelligence. This transpersonal state of awareness is an
elevated state of empathy and enables the shaman/a to feel and experience much of what a patient is struggling with. Real
shamans see living structures as fields of energy and access information very specifically in the shamanic dreamtime
Based on relationships with extra-material beings, shamanic healing
is disregarded by western medicine, even when verifiable healings are produced. Often preliterate healing traditions
cure illness as effectively as western medicine. Native cultures are our fathers, and we are their children. They are the
older cultures. Often these so-called 'primitive cultures' have a grasp of the human mind and healing that exceeds that of
the modern dominant culture.
Before European contact shamanic healing, the Medicine Way
of Nature, was all that was available. Now that it has moved to an urban setting it is in danger of becoming distorted
and empty of Spirit. Not dissimilar to the tobacco spirit of ancient Amazonia which originally was a powerful
method of healing and a vehicle for communication with the Spirits. Today it's effects have become warped and
destructive due to tortured reconfiguring for corporate profits. Not surprisingly the modern product seems to be
angry and vengeful.
The traditional shamanic healer is a warrior/mediator between the field of opposites in the individual
and society - the socio-psychotherapeutic differences on all levels of the people -physical, mental/emotional and spiritual. The
human elemental constitutional condition is energetically re-balanced between the forces of health and illness;
joy and sadness; vitality and depression; clarity and confusion; nurture and insecurity; inspiration and grief; peace
and fear; vision and frustration; light/life and dark/death; positive light and negative light; harmony and chaos; kindness
and vindictiveness; self-pity/caused by feeling superior over others and self-importance/caused by insecurity.
For much of our society there is a lack of meaning in life which generally leads to symptoms of depression
and addictions. There is a growing search for spirituality and Mother Nature's healing medicine ways. The diseases of our
society that are killing us are depression, over-work and obsessive materialism; self-hatred and abuse; feeling unhappy,
unfulfilled and powerless; fear, paranoia and chaotic thinking from recreational substance abuse, alcohol, and over-medication;
pornography, rape, emotional family traumas and child-abuse; theft, greed and dishonesty of organizations in authority;
and rampant collective and individual lack of respect for Nature. Our inner war breaks out into wars between people
and competing societies.
Traditional shamanic healing is an holistic approach to health encompassing body, heart, soul and
Spirit. Modern research only recently is discovering what traditional healers have known for millenia, that disease exists
not only on the physical plane but also in the emotional energetic fabric of an individual. Often physical symptoms
are a collection of negative emotions. Everything is energy. The key to healing is transforming the energy of illness into
the energy of health. Same as in physics where potential energy is transformed into kinetic energy.
When a person becomes ill their energy pattern becomes distorted. The breakdown of
harmony results in energetic 'magical illnesses.' A body in disharmony is prone to disease. A state of disharmony arises when
there is conflict between individual and community, between individual and cosmic spirit, or the toxic aggressive
energy of the negative, envious or resentful thoughts of others. Shamanic healing facilitates the benefic
forces of harmony on behalf of the client, removing blockages to prevent disharmony which can result in mental/emotional or
This wisdom of the aboriginal ancients, is a practice that considers lack
of health primarily the result of either loss of parts of our soul or exposure to toxic aggressive energy. In todays society many individuals feel disconnected and are dispirited, suffering
a loss of spirit/soul. Collectively the society suffers from soul loss. For so many life seems to have no meaning. Shamanic
healing liberates feelings of disconnetion with our inner Self and Great Spirit.
Shamanic healing views sickness as a loss of personal
energy and power. When we are 'power-full,' full of Spirit - pure energy, we are unlikely to be vulnerable to the
envy of others or resentment from persons who wish us harm or hope that we do not suceed in our endeavours. Toxic
aggressive energies or intrusions may be symbolically represented in our night-time dreaming as various attack
When we experience extreme fatigue, are emotionally weak, in grief,
feeling anger, have become unconscious due to alcohol, drugs or accident or are selfishly or naively manipulating Cosmic Spirit
for personal, political, showbusiness, or monetary agenda we separate from Nature, from our natural connection
with the Great Spirit. Disconnected people in their expressions of self-pity or self-importance are hurtful to others
and the environment by sending out negative thoughts and hostility. This traditional understanding teaches that disrespect
for oneself, others and Nature returns multiplied many times and is seen as a cause of ill health.
Traditional shamanic healers are ordained or sanctioned by the Spirits.
True shamanic healing is not an outpouring of emotion, sentimentality, or borrowing the form
of ceremony witnessed, read, or learned in a seminar workshop. It also is not based on intuition, imagination or conceptual
thinking. The Spirits come to us depending on our purity, without striving from our side. True shamanic
healing is more than a genuine interest for others' well being and freedom from suffering. True shamanic
healing requires ability to re-enter and remain anchored in the shaman/a's personal dream vision experience.
Then the gift of the Spirits, the elemental Laws of Nature do the healing work. Traditionally if the healing way
isn't backed up by a valid shamanic dream visioning gift, it will be nothing more than a series of mechanical gestures.
Anything on the informational level is only representational, flat and superficial and unable to be a conduit of healing energy.
You can't take anyone where you haven't already had direct dream vision experience.
All creative healing energy comes from the Great Spirit - Divine Universal
Source of Truth through the Spirits, the elemental Laws of Nature. Traditional shamanic healers are respectful
facilitators for the loving energy of Mother Nature's Spirit helpers. And it is ultimately the client's sincere heartfelt
openess and surrender to the Great Spirit that is in control of their own healing.
It also is important to understand that transformational healing
can not occur if the client is only curious.
Shamanic Dreamtime Transformational Healing
- connecting body, heart, soul and spirit:
For the client shamanic healing begins with an honest desire for
love and the opportunity to view the objective world with new sight. And to be open for our innate energetic forces to
go in the direction of dignity and self-empowerment rather than dissipating into neurosis leading to exhaustion, guilt, soul
disconnection and self- abuse.
Both alcohol, where the drinker wants to forget problems and blunt sensibility,
or recreational substances which lead into an artificial paradise, are destructive and hinder spiritual progress.
Shamanic healing is just the opposite. This Medicine Way of Nature enables us to regain our energetic
wellness by purifying our spiritual nervous system enabling us to re-experience our true character,
moral worth and natural soul connection with Spirit and the elemental Laws of Nature. Shamanic healing
is possible when psyche and body of the patient harmonize with Nature. Shamanic healing repaints the
distorted fabric of consciousness. It resets our biological clock according to universal time and harmonizes our natural brain
chemistry. The corresponding shift in our personal values, priorities and self-image produces a transformative 'new beginning.'
Shamanic healing can result in personal lives that
are more fruitful, public policies that help the people, entertainment that inspires, fair trade and sharing
the outdoors without damaging the environment. This is the life changing gift of the elemental Laws of Nature. Shamanic healing is a direct experience of the empowering energy of the Great
Spirit ending separation from our Divine Source.
No one is outside of The Laws of Nature. There is an equal
reaction to every action. When we are living wellness, wholeness, health we radiate goodness to others and the environment
and the universe reflects back to us our connectedness with Great Spirit. In the end, effective healing is dependent on
our love quotient. Through our alliance with our compassionate Earth Mother's loving Laws of Nature, the seed of love
