"What is Shamanic Energy Healing?"


By Bonnie Sandera

This healing modality is based on a holistic view of health and wellbeing as practiced by Medicine Healers around the globe. A person’s health is assessed through tracking the alignment of body, mind and spirit. This balance is essential for internal as well as external health (relationship to others and the world around us).

Many Medicine healers believe illness is believed to have an energetic origin based in a traumatic event that the person has experienced. This event can be recent or long ago and beyond immediate recall. The trauma leaves an energetic imprint that if left unattended and unhealed, can develop into a chronic emotional, mental or physical condition. Therefore the Medicine Healer tracks for and addresses the origins of this trauma at the energetic level, thereby removing the imprint and its influence on our health and wellbeing. 

Sometimes we may have trouble freeing ourselves form-limiting beliefs, which result in repetitive and damaging patterns of behavior. Our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being may be compromised, despite our best efforts to change. Shamanic healing is a powerful tool for tracing the roots of the issue to its energetic source, rather than focusing on the all too familiar story. From this energetic origin our affinity for the issue can be transformed. This in turn frees us from old binding thought and behavior patterns and connects us to our dreams and the infinite possibilities available to us.

Who could benefit from an Energy Session

Energy sessions focus on the following aspects: Power loss, Soul loss, Intrusions, Spirit releasing, Ancestral work and Energetic imprints in the luminous energy field. People experiencing any of the following are candidates for shamanic energy work:


•Repetitive negative behavior patterns/addiction 

• Emotional or health issues related to your ancestry

• Past emotional traumas that continue to haunt you

• Apathy, numbness, lack of vitality or fatigue

• An unhealthy attachment to any individual

• Chronic illness or weak immune system

• A propensity toward addictions and destructive behaviors

• Feelings of emptiness 

• Feelings of watching your life from the outside

• Inexplicable mood swings or personality shifts

What to Expect in a Shamanic Energy Session

A typical session takes approximately 1 hour. All Energy work is conducted in a very safe environment and is strictly private and confidential. 

The process involves a consultation where you are given the time to talk about the presenting problem. In telling “your story”, the shaman is given the opportunity to track where the toxic energy imprint is housed within your energy systems. When the location is identified, the process continues by having you comfortably recline and the work of clearing your energy field proceeds. 

After the session you may be given homework and suggestions for lifestyle changes that may be necessary to support the healing process. 

Depending on the nature of the work involved, significant healing can be accomplished in a little as 3 sessions. The success is affected by the intensity of your desire for healing, and your willingness to actively create healing patterns in your life.
