Shamanic & Counseling Services:
When it comes to Shamanic healing, what works for one person may not work for another. While we may all have shared parts that are like your life’s story. However, is as unique as you are. So, the healing should be just as unique. Spirit sends us to who we need when the healing is needed and decides what needs to be accomplished. Your story contains both Love and Fear. Happiness and pain. Trust and betrayal. Poor relationship choices, Not feeling we are enough in the eyes of others or that we deserve the pain because of something we did or failed to do. These are common among human beings.
While your story is unique, there are 3 main fears that contribute to our self-judgement and shame. They control most of our decisions. They are the Fear of Abandonment, Fear of being seen as Different by others and Fear of being Alone. These fears create situations where we do things, we are ashamed of, embarrassed by or beat ourselves up and create a cycle of self-judgement.
We all have parts of ourselves that we keep hidden from the outside world. We don’t go around advertising our wounds. Our modern society has people or family saying, “get over it, move on”. “Others discount it because, they know of someone who has had worse happen and is doing fine”. The problem is that we keep these experiences to ourselves. We try to hide what’s inside from ourselves. This can work short term. However, there is a time where we begin to believe the lies, we tell others and they become a false sense of who we are. Then when those false self-identities collapse, we stand in the rubble, question who we are and don’t know where to go from there.
I can list all kinds of fancy spiritual sounding names, like soul-retrieval, Soul-rememberment, Intrusion removal and the list goes on. The names of the techniques mean nothing if you are not sure of what they mean or what you need.
Let me say, that no matter what shadows, grief, fears, and demons are chasing you, I will create a safe place, guard your soul, and stand beside you as the pathfinder as we work through them together. In Shamanism there is no savior. No one to magically pull you to safety, make your pain go away or promise things that you can not achieve. We can all change, Heal and live a fulfilled life.
This is done using various, techniques like drumming, guided journeying, rituals, and ceremonies. All will be discussed, and You have free will to refuse any suggested methods.
I am a licensed Minister, as such everything said in and out of my office, is confidential. You are free to express your thoughts, fears etc. The only time your confidentiality may be breached, is if you specifically confess to harming a child, elderly or threaten to harm others. Nothing is recorded, nor will I discuss your visits with anyone, unless you specifically request that be done.
these are some of our services, they are used as a guide and will be customized to serve your unique needs.
Clearing, blessing of Homes: Places hold on to residual energy, from domestic violence, family disharmony, prolonged illness and the passing of individuals at the end of their lives (naturally or violently). Therefore, it is suggested that this be performed before moving into both rental and newly purchased homes. it can be performed after intense emotional upheaval. With these past two years of Lockdown due to Covid 19, we can all benefit from a clearing in our places of refuge and family.
Finding your spiritual path this can take many forms, from identifying the role spirit plays in your life, to meditation practices, creation of Art, music, exercise, and finding or renewing your connection to nature, people, and animals. Spirituality is an individual connection to God, Spirit, Ancestors, or another form. to Some people are easily drawn to certain types of religious or spiritual practice, others have problems because they have never been taught or encouraged to look in this direction or how it may impact your life. Some are entering a 12step program or another recovery program, and do not feel comfortable with their definition of what the higher power is called. We can work together as you learn and understand, that the concept is nothing more than a connection between your internal self and an external force that is present in all things. This creates a dialogue, that will help guide your journey through life and recovery.
Meditation Affirmations and Self-hypnosis: These are positive statements used in a meditative trance like state that change negative energy into positive actions. they can be part of another healing type or solely on their own.
Counseling: Much like other mental health professionals we use dialogue from the individual and our Spiritual Guides to identify, find the patterns and behaviors that have us making unhealthy choices in relationships, jobs and most areas of our lives. We get so used to making subconscious decisions, We do not even realize we are making them. After Identifying them we can use Both Meditation and Affirmations to reprogram the mind to recognize and stop these negative thoughts before they can manifest in an issue or bring Chaos to your life.
Personal Negative Energy clearing and Positive energy attraction: Just as places such as homes can hold residual energy so can the human body. Have you ever heard people say they seemed to have a Dark cloud hanging over them? It may be true. like energy attracts like energy. our mindset, Illnesses and Pain can unwittingly attract similar energies. These energies can layer on our mind and bodies like a blanket or dark cloud. These energies will bring in darkness ad make it hard to see the light and opportunities that are all around us. lets work to clear that and make your life more fulfilling.
Nature based healing
Reconnecting to nature: It’s hard to believe that in this modern day and age, that nature is necessary for our mental and physical well being. We see cities were 150 years ago, they planned parks and green spaces among the buildings and businesses. As the Cities began growing at the end of the 19th century, there was an increase in both physical and mental health issues that doctors were at a loss to find a cause. One of the most famous of those afflicted was President Theodore (Teddy), Roosevelt. He became ill as a young man and when a cure could not be found for the physical deterioration of his physical health, he was sent west to the wilderness. As he traveled, camped and lived in the forest, ocean, mountains, etc.. His health returned as did his stamina, Lungs, and mental well being. He stated throughout his life that nature helped him heal. This led him to begin the National park system. Saving nature so that all citizens could visit and benefits from their visits. The medical community of that era coined the name “City Sickness” as the illness he experienced. In the 21st century, this seems silly. Yet in the past 10 years, modern cities are struggling with preserving green spaces and parks vs building more housing. Seattle was once known as the emerald city. Now green spaces are being reduced at an astonishing rate. Many of us, are spending more of our lives inside on computers both at work and at home. we are isolating ourselves from the Elements and the Natural worlds. Finding your soul’s connection to the divine: We will discuss what animals you repeatedly see at home and on nature walks. We will Use Metaphysical principals such as Meditation to connect to the Universal Consciousness / energy and spiritual guidance. all done outside in a natural environment.
We offer a group or personal class Called Connecting to the elements within and without :This class identifies the Cardinal Element we are connected to internally. WE all have a connection to Air, Fire, Water or Earth, also we have a minor Element Mist, Steam, Mud and Ash/ darkness. Both the cardinal and minor elements can control how we handle challenges or emotional response to stressors. This is done through a series of Other World Journeys. We learn how to do basic divination work to connect deeper to that energy and use it in our daily lives.
Connecting to your wild heart: when we think of meditation, everyone thinks that you need to have a quiet room, burn incense and chant, chime and drum. This has its place in spiritual practice. However, Nature has its own voice. let’s sit by a stream, sit on the beach. be mindful as we garden, plant and clean up our yards. sit quietly and listen to the insects while we Fish. Let the wind blow around us on a bluff. Watching the Sunset as we drink a good beer or fine wine. Sit in the dark at a campfire, feel the connection with the fire. Let its passion fill you with the need to dance naked around the fire and bare your soul. Let the rain fall on your skin, feel it remove the burdens that fill your mind, dance in the tears of the sky. It seems weird, crazy and odd. This is because we follow rules that are set by society. We fear others will see us as Different. we offer programs for groups. experience nature in a loving and accepting group. Find that wildness in yourself and let it guide your life. Having a veteran, family, spiritual group or corporate campout? Team building event? let me help. You provide the Venue outdoors. I will provide the guidance.
Personal Meditation Space/Garden: I set up a personal space to heal for individuals, your employees, family or group in need of healing or stress release? limited on time? let me help design nature-friendly and inviting meditation space. Sometimes we just need that 15 min of quiet. Give this gift to your group or yourself. here is an example:
Mindful nature walks and hikes: Often when we hike or walk in nature for exercise, we have a route and destination in mind. We rush through the woods, beaches, and mountains. We see it as exercise. Something that we do between other plans. This is a more mindfulness approach to wandering outdoors. observe the feeling of the sun and wind on your skin. The feeling of sand between your toes, the energy of a tree against your back. The smell of the forest during a rain and the sounds of the wind and water droplets on the leaves. see Nature in a whole new reality. in Animism everything has a Soul that we call a song. let your soul’s song talk to the other songs we do not hear when we rush through the natural world.
Use of Art in Healing
Art Based Meditation and expression Art is nothing more than a conversation, between the artist’s soul , and the Divine Spirit of Creation. Through art, we express who we are and can use it as a voice , A Healing medium to uncover the hidden parts of ourselves. Face and confront our personal, ancestral and societal based wounds and start a dialogue that no one wishes to talk about. Moreover, Artistic expression, creates a dialogue between our mind our Soul and Spirit/ God to find Answers , address inequity, marginalization and create societal as well as personal change. They say whether you like it or hate it, art starts a conversation. We all hear of the tortured artist. the one that puts their blood, sweat, and tears into the creation of their art. This is actually a healing process. This is how Art helps heal When someone is busy creating an art piece, they are in a sense meditating. during this time their connection between Spirit and Self is a form of meditation. This, allows the artist to let go of fears, self-judgments, and other coping mechanisms. the time and dialogue, during creation, let the Soul’s voice come forward. Thus, letting the artist work through the fears.
The first thing that needs to be present in healing one’s soul is honesty with one’s self. Then to learn not to fear this shadow. Essentially the finished work is a Prayer.
Those who like or hate it are doing nothing more than letting their own shadows dictate their response.
Soul Painting: This is a method of meditation . The paintings are not planed out. In a state of meditation, Spirit guides the painter. The goal is not the painting, Since this is a meditative conversation with your Soul’s Song, Shadows and emotions that we keep hidden in the subconscious , become part of the conscious mind. that can then be dealt with, to facilitate healing Finding Who WE Are? Many of us have put so much into a life , family, job etc. In doing so, we are left feeling incomplete. this usually occurs due to a life changing event. we ask who am I? Lets use art to find that missing pieces are hidden from us. lets find the soul that was sung into being by the ancestors, but that has been forgotten
Shadows of light and Dark: Through Art we explore the shadows that hold us back and keep us locked in pain and wounding. Many of us think of Dark Shadows as the ones that harm us . However, sometimes we are actually caught in a cycle of pain due to light Shadows. Things so bright that they keep us from seeing things as they truly are. lets explore both light and dark. freeing us from the grips of both that harm us.
Drum Making: When we work with Animal hides, we are working with and honoring both the Song of the Animal, Wood frame of the forest but also our own Song. Revelations may be reviled during the process. The drum is then spiritually connected to the Soul of the owner if wished. this helps with healing journeys and Dialogue between your soul and the divine energy of Spirit/ God.
Shamanic/ Animist healing
Animist Spiritual Healing has been called many names. Natural Healing, Metaphysical Healing, Soul Healing, Shamanic Healing Traditional Healing, and many other names. We call this Animist Spiritual Healing. My methods are based on Shamanic principles as well as Metaphysical training.. The Healer is merely the bridge, between Spirit and the one seeking to be healed. person seeking help is Calling out to Spirit, God, Holy Spirit, universal energy, etc.. The soul is Vibrational energy that is part of the one Universal Vibration of the divine. in prayer. which emanates from the one Great universal consciousness, Universal energy or God. As the facilitator I do not perform the healing, Spirit does.
The main thing that this healing does is remove barriers and blockages, that keep the Lamentor in a state of imbalance. once this is removed, the body and mind can remember what has been blocked or forgotten. Thus, the Person is made “Whole” . This integrates and the balance is restored. This Healing uses Rituals and Prayer to call Spirit and help the individual release the false sense of self and opens them to guidance by helping them find their true-self and understand that something has Changed with in them.
Soul Remembering( Aka Soul retrieval): Trauma can cause a type of Soul Amnesia. When a traumatic event occurs in our lives and we can not process what has happened, our Song will create a dissociation of sorts. essentially a “Soul Amnesia” occurs. Our minds then fill in the gaps of those events. This can be temporary, or we begin to believe the narrative and it creates an attachment. This can create conditions that lead to Addiction, Mental Illness, Fear and Anxiety. this block is removed. Thus allowing the person to remember and reintegrate that forgotten part of their soul.
Intrusion/attachment removal, Soul De-Armoring:: The Soul can react to trauma by placing a type of blockage or protection (armor) over a wounded area of the body. This is a misguided protective process. In contrast, Intrusions and Attachments are placed by others. It can be a malicious act of intent to harm or most often it’s done without the others knowledge. Bullying, belittling, told not good enough, and other common behaviors or something as innocent as trying to please others to our own detriment is but a few examples. Through a ritual similar to Remembering, these objects are removed from the energy body.
Adjacent life (past life walking): we perform a ritual to return to a point in a past life, that has created an attachment. That attachment has continued to follow each reincarnation from one life to the next. This is a serious undertaking and is not done for entertainment. This is possible because on the shamanic level time has no meaning. there is no past, present or future. There just is all. So, when visiting these other lives, we see them as they have unfolded. To disturb this flow, will change things here and now. With that said, when we heal in this timeline, the healing can ripple backwards to these previous and forward into the next life.
Curse unbinding and Adjacent life work: Sometimes we look at our family or selves and think we are cursed. That we can not seem to get out from under what seems like a dark cloud. A curse can follow families, you through your Adjacent lives( past lives). It can also be placed upon your current life by a malicious act by an Occult practitioner. We can also self curse ourselves. I will help you identify and break this curse and its hold on your life.
Sometimes patterns are identified and linked to past incarnations. in my tradition, we call these adjacent lives. I will walk through those lives with the help of spirit. when I see the life that began the pattern, you are taken to that life and shown what trauma caused the pattern to start. A ritual is performed to change these patterns and release you from this and curses.
Curse Unbinding Malicious intent (self-cursing). We are all familiar with the idea of someone placing a curse on someone with Malicious intent. However, very few of us recognize that we can also create that same type of intent and direct it at ourselves. This can be done purposely out of guilt, or as a defense mechanism. many of us say,” I would rather put myself down and criticize myself than give others the chance to do so and hurt me”. Sadly, the results are the same. In doing so we can manifest a cloud of doubt and pain upon ourselves. through ritual and counseling we can identify the first time we began the process. Identify the way it has held us back , and release its hold.
Soul Resonance( realignment) Pre/ post organ transplant integration, Twin Soul integration , body image issues, and Trans-gender soul realignment with new body image, Soul Jump In’s at near-death or extreme trauma. This is used when the person, Has Two competing Souls inhabiting the same body, or the individual feels that the Soul Song does not fit their physical form at birth. Transplanted organs can have attachments to the former owner. these can follow them when transplanted, A pregnancy that was thought to be multiple births, however only one child is viable or one absorbed. Through this technique, a ritual is performed to bring the Soul back into alignment so both can live in harmony, or one is asked to leave. it reconciles the Soul to integrate with the new body or align the soul to its current form.
Grief ceremony and memorial ceremonies for families of those who have lost a loved one, naturally or at their own hand or another’s. Sometimes, we are too heart broken and angry to attend the funeral, or due to personal circumstances we could not attend a service due to incarceration, travel, Covid restrictions on gatherings, burial overseas or when no physical body was ever recovered. I can perform a releasing, honoring and farewell ceremony for the family of that loved one. Thus, honoring their life, speaking what you could not at the passing and other emotions. Followed by a family gathering to remember the good times.
Military/ Veteran Homecoming, separation and PTSD: Occasionally when service members come home or are having issues with their discharge and integration back into civilian life. Also, warriors that come home after deployment into a war zone and can not adjust back to non-combat status. The old pre-Christian cultures like Rome and various Celtic had specific rituals for returning Warriors. They involved leaving their arms and Armor behind and then they were washed, clothed and purified in a ritual manner. This allowed the Warrior to let go of the attachments that they accumulated before returning. In some instances, the Warrior has night terrors and other symptoms we call PTSD. The Animist cause of PTSD is seen as an internal haunting. A loop plays in the individual’s mind. By breaking those memories and stopping them from playing in that loop, can help the individuals in a releasing ritual. This work is also beneficial for the Family of the Military /Veteran, as they have been dealing with the stress of their homecoming.
First responders( Police, Fire and other Disaster response workers and Medics/ Corpsman): Very similar to Military section above. However, your situation is unique. Most of the people who enter these professions, want to help their communities. This opens them up to connect to those communities by living in them and working in them. There is no true “getting away”. You see the families of those who you have contact with. Your children go to school with their families and you may even have a personal relationship with someone who is wounded or dies while you are on your shift. The major stressor that can trigger your PTSD is the death of a child or loss of a coworker or family member. Whether due to accident, human abuse or impaired driver. That image gets stuck in our minds. We can see the symptoms of Anger, Fear, emotional pain. We may realize that these are actually internal anger etc.. due to self-judgment. The words, what could I have done to stop this from happening. What could I have done or not done that could have saved them? I am available for individual or group work to help you, your family and coworkers.
removal of ghosts: I can clear ghosts , residual energy and other entities from homes, property, and land. Many businesses. Barns, Bakeries, breweries, former churches, medical facilities both human and animal. some are caused by ghosts residual energy other by Demonic activity. Signs are Excessive sweating and agitation in animals. the bread that will not rise, Beer that will not carbonate. Apparitions and things moving and disappearing. Also, places that have experienced mass shootings, suicides, domestic violence, and other traumatic events.
Exorcism and demonic possession: Seek the assistance of a mental health professional to rule out mental illness or protect your safety first.
Vampiric: This is a result of unrequited love. This demon needs the love of the person of which they are attached. They take for themselves and use the individual to fill their needs. Extremely jealous, suspicious, and controlling. They isolate their partner from family, friends and even children because they see them as competing for your love. When you try to leave a relationship or do leave you feeling better, healthier with more energy or clear mind? Then the former partner seems to draw you back in out of guilt or playing the victim or the person in distress? resulting in getting back together. Stalking/obsession is another red flag. I can help break that bond and freeing you from the demon.
Lycanthropic: This type creates rage, extreme anger, and violent behavior. Many times, this is the result of feelings of helplessness, experiencing violence (i.e., domestic and relationship, sexual or fear of eminent death). This manifests as obsessive thoughts of revenge, Rage, acts of violence towards others (physical, mental, or emotional abuse). This demon is usually called into being by the desperation and fear of the helpless and abused. It can be subconscious or overtly asking for its strength to help you deal with a situation, the problem is once called into being the arrogance and power we experience keeps us from releasing it and an attachment is formed,
Other entities are elemental in nature. They are attached to specific locations on the earth and are protectors. When we desecrate a sacred place, such as a burial ground, open a mineral mine, log an area of old growth forest, build homes or businesses remove objects from nature without asking or leaving an offering, these spirits can attach and wreak havoc on our lives. examples are the Jinn of the Middle east and the tricksters of Native American traditions, and various other cultural elemental entities .
Tulpa manifestations: These are demons caused by the focusing specific thoughts and beliefs. When we focus an energy through intentional repetition of a thought either individually or in group settings that thought can be brought into being. Many people approch this thinking it’s a game. However, when energy is focused it can birth and entity. Its sole purpose is to fulfill that intent. Remember the adage,” be careful what you wish for”. In this age of disconnection and social media, it is easy to create this type of demon. We get people to like and comment without thought of who it can harm or focused on an individual to attack. These mass focuses can provide enough energy to bring the intent to life.
Poltergeists: these are telekinetic manifestations. They usually come into being when a prepubescent child or an individual with psychic abilities feels that they are unheard. they can be directed at specific individuals, families or other close familial type groups. usually after identifying the focus of the energy and changing that interpersonal dynamic, the manifestation will dissipate. Since the individual is unknowingly manifesting this energy, it usually follows when location changes such as moving. Should the individual be strong enough the manifestation can become sentient like a Tulpa manifestation.
Pure demonic possession: While extremely rare, can occur. Usually this is a result of performing occult rituals without proper training and knowledge of what you are calling into being. Seeking power from such forces to obtain money, wealth or prestige without understanding that there is always a twisted price to pay. Nothing is free.
