Types of Shamanic Services
With journeying, the shamanic practitioner enters a trance like state, with the assistance of a drum or rattle, and meets with a power animal or compassionate helping spirit to discuss an issue for the client. The practitioner will return with a message or advice. Some healing or distant work is done in journey space.
In divination, the shamanic practitioner does a journey to a compassionate helping spirit, asking them to show the potential outcomes for a set of choices that the client needs or wants to make. We would discuss any potential choices, and what questions we would want answered before the journey.
Soul Retrieval is a technique to return a piece of us that may have left during a traumatic event in our past. While that may have been great at that time, we need them to be present now to be healthy and happy. A practitioner will journey to find a soul piece that is ready and willing to return and blow it into the heart and crown chakras to return it to the client.
In a soul purpose journey, the shamanic practitioner does a journey to the client's higher or true self and asks why the soul chose to reincarnate at this time; for example, is there a lesson to learn or task to complete or a reason we chose our birth families or life partner. We would discuss what questions we would want answered before the journey.
Power Animal Retrieval
Power animals are a helping spirit that offers assistance, guidance, and support. They are available to everyone on their life journey, and bring a medicine and power that can help us on our life journeys. In ceremonial space, the practitioner journeys to find a power animal willing to come and partner with you.
Ancestral Guides and Spirits
We all have four main ancestral lines; our mother's mothers, mother's fathers, father's mothers, and father's fathers lines. It is possible to inherit both gifts and helping spirits from each line along with old curses and spirit attachments. Journeying to clear the lines of issues and meet our ancestral helping spirits and gifts can help with current day issues.
In an Inkan Illumination, we are clearing the emotional/energetic imprint of a past event from the energy field. In ceremonial space the shamanic practitioner will have you blow the incompatible energy into a stone and replace it with light. This allows a permanent shift and the beginning of true healing .
A psychopomp is a conductor of souls. The shamanic practitioner works with helping spirits to assist the soul of a deceased being to move on to whatever comes next. The vast majority of beings move on naturally when they pass, but a psychopomp service can assist when a spirit gets stuck for any reason. A message from spirit can also be given to the client during the session.
In a compassionate depossession, the shamanic practitioner is assisting the client in removing an attached spirit that did not move on when it passed or was bound to remain by a curse or spell. Attached beings pull energy from their "host," and may cause health or other problems for the person they are attached to.
Curses, spells, and other forms of projected ill intent have been part of human culture in some form since the very beginning. They do not have to be intentional and can be continued from past lives and/or ancestral lines. A shamanic practitioner will work with helping spirits to diagnose and unravel the thought form.
In space clearing the shamanic practitioner will clear away negative energy or non-native spirits. Connecting with the spirits that belong in a space can also create peace. This is good when reclaiming a space after a breakup, when moving into a new space, or if the energy feels heavy or different in a space. A clearing can also be recommended as part of a different healing.
Past Life Untangling
Souls tend to accumulate karma and lessons from past lives that can be brought forward into this one. Sometimes it is a gift or skill that adds depth and joy to this life, but it could also be an old debt or an action that needs to be addressed like an old curse to free us from a negative pattern. Untangling an old lifetime can free us from old patterns that no longer serve us.
