Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

What is Shamanism?

The only question is Does this Path have a Heart?  If it does, then it is a Good Path. If it doesn't, then it is of no use.  Carlos Castaneda.

Shamanism cannot be defined in a few simple terms.  It is a complex spiritual healing practice, and a way of life.  The Shamanic Way requires the practitioner to enter into altered states of consciousness (or "non-ordinary reality") via various rituals and practices in order to encounter and interact with the world of Spirit (or "Otherworld").  Historically, this was accomplished through the use of medicinal hallucinogenic plants (such as ayahuasca), but many modern-day shamans choose not to participate in this tradition.

During a shamanic healing session (or "journey"), the practitioner acts as a vessel for transcendental energies in order to have a healing effect in the material plane of existence. Spiritual healing is accomplished by the Shaman in the form of soul retrieval, extraction and various other methods.

Walking the Shamanic Way, the practitioner is regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world of benevolent and malevolent spirits. A Shaman typically has many spiritual guides, including spiritual beings, plants, animals and even crystals or stones. Working in the world of Spirit is how the Shaman accomplishes healing, often in a subtle way and sometimes in a profound way.

Shamanic Healing.

Shamanic Healing involves various rituals depending upon the type of healing needed and the desired results. Shamanic Healing Sessions typically work best for someone who is open to receiving whatever form of spiritual healing method that Spirit communicates as necessary. Shamanic Healing is reserved for difficult cases where extreme spiritual brokenness is evident.

Why Do Practitioners Charge for Shamanic Healing?

In indigenous tribes, the Shaman or Medicine Man was typically cared for by the members of the community. Food, clothing, shelter and necessities for healing sessions were provided by the tribe and the land. Our society has changed drastically since the time of tribal community living. In order to provide food, clothing and shelter for the Shaman, a financial exchange must take place. It is the way of the modern world.

Shamanic Healing has also changed. Now, Shamanic Healing can be given not only within the Shaman’s “tribe” but also worldwide, via remote distance healing. A Shamanic Healing Session requires a great deal of training that spans the practitioner’s lifetime. And although a Shaman should not “charge” for for the healing itself (as truly the Shaman is not the healer, but Spirit), he or she should be compensated for the time spent in prayer, meditation, rituals and journeying on your behalf.
