Shamanic healing is restoring the body and soul. How does Shamanism work? The goal is to heal the spiritual part that has succumbed to the disease (the ailment can be anything from physical to psychological) and restoring the connection to the severed power line (remember we all have energy lines, strings that become entangled in this world). Extractions are healing techniques that play a key role in all shamanic cultures and practices, which explore the causes of illness from the perspective from within the soul.
Shamanic healing involves locating, perceiving, and eliminating the disturbance and whatever the discomfort may be dragging you into the dark parallels of the flesh realm.
Working with your spirits will be vital for identification and diagnosis of the disease, in preparation for extraction and renewal or what the spirits guide us to.
