What is Shamanic Healing?

Shamans view illness holistically. They assess the health of a person by tracking their alignment of Mind, Body and Spirit. This Sacred Balance is essential for our health and relates not only to our internal health (relationship to self) but also to our external health (relationship to others and the world around us).

Rather than trying to cure a symptom, which is the tradition of western allopathic medicine, shamans look at the whole system and track the symptom to its source. Shamans believe that all illness has a spiritual origin, which is based in some trauma that the patient has experienced. The trauma energetically imprints that person and if left unhealed or untended can develop into a chronic emotional, mental or physical condition. Therefore, shamans heal the spiritual origins of illness, so the imprint of trauma no longer informs our reality or health and we can return to a state of Grace.

Cross culturally, most shamanic healing focuses on the following aspects: Power loss, Soul Loss, Intrusions, Spirit releasing, ancestral work, and in the Peruvian Q’ero tradition, energetic imprints in the luminous energy field.

Power loss & Power Animal retrieval:

Many shamanic cultures believe we are born with one or more spirit guardians in the form of a Spirit Animal. In some traditions they can also be called: Power Animal, Totem Animal, an animal Familiar. I sometimes refer to Power Animals as our Earth Angels--Compassionate Animal beings who reside in and come from the Mother Earth. I see them as guardians of our physicality who help protect our overall well-being. In the tradition of the Salish people, from the North West Coast, the first Vision Quest of a child was to find their “Body Armor Protector”, a Spirit Animal whose job was to be a shield for your body--to protect you from harm.

From a spiritual perspective, a power animal protects our physical and spiritual vitality. This special guardian connects you to your body, your wisdom, and to the Earth, while guiding, protecting, grounding and inspiring you. Shamans believe that when we become disconnected from our power animals we lose our personal power.

Power loss symptoms are:

  • A sense of not belonging
  • chronic misfortune
  • low energy
  • lack of purpose
  • depression or illness

A power animal retrieval reconnects you with your special guardian, rebuilding stamina, vital energy, a sense of purpose and a connection to your gifts. Instruction is given after the retrieval to help you maintain and honor your relationship with your animal.

Soul Loss & Soul Retrieval:

Soul Loss is a shamanic term used to describe an imbalance caused by the loss or disassociation of some part of our vital essence (soul part). It is a spiritual illness caused by trauma that can result in emotional or physical disease. In our modern society this trauma and emotional splitting can come in many forms: Emotional or physical abuse, incest, rape, assault, divorce, separation, loss of a loved one, home, business or career, accidents, illness, surgery, or wartime experiences…these are just some of the examples. PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is often associated with Soul Loss

In these instances a natural human response is to disassociate from our bodies to cope with the pain. We go numb, or withdraw and this protects us temporarily from feeling hurtful feelings.  Commonly, when a trauma is more brief, as in a car accident, we may go through a period that feels like shock, but then slowly come back to ourselves as the danger has passed. However, if the trauma is more chronic: like childhood incest or being in an abusive relationship, or physically dangerous: like being assaulted, or in a war zone. This disassociation (or soul loss) becomes more serious and prolonged: We feel apathetic towards life, or chronically fearful, or have relentless depression. Also, we may try to fill the void of this emptiness with addictions: drugs, alcohol, food, sex… From a shamanic perspective, this indicates that the lost soul part has not been able to return on its own and requires an intervention, for without the wholeness of having all our parts back and intact, we can find functioning in the world difficult and painful.

Soul Stealing:

Sometimes we experience soul loss because we have given part of our vital essence (a soul part) to someone else, or allowed them to take it. We may do this because we love someone, or we believe we are helping someone. Conversely, If someone has taken this vital essence, it may happen because they are trying to control us or don’t want to let go of us.

If you are going through a break-up that is not mutual, and despite your strongest convictions you keep getting back together, your ex may have a piece of you, which gives the feeling of being “corded” to each other-- it may feel impossible to break away. However, no one can use our vital essence except us. Shamanically, this is called ‘soul theft’ and it presents as an unnatural or unhealthy connection to another person that may feel awkward, controlling and uncomfortable to us.

Symptoms of soul loss include:

  • Chronic depression
  • Saying, “I have never felt the same since, ‘  blank  ‘ happened.”
  • Apathy, numbness, lack of vitality or fatigue
  • An unhealthy connection to any individual, past partner or family member
  • Inability to end a relationship
  • Feeling like your ‘soul was stolen’ by an abuser
  • A feeling that you are watching your life from the outside
  • PTSD, (post-traumatic stress disorder) nightmares, or “flashbacks” of an old trauma
  • Chronic illness or a weak immune system
  • Feelings of emptiness which you try to fill with external things--addictions
  • Difficulty staying present in your body (disassociation) or having memory gaps
  • A propensity towards addictions or destructive behaviors

In extreme cases there can be multiple personality disorders, a complete inability to function, or coma. Soul retrieval is an ancient form of spiritual healing in which the shaman, (through prayer, visioning, and tracking) locates the lost vital essence (or soul parts) of the client, heals them, and merges them back into the client to restore the person’s spiritual wholeness and Sacred Balance.

One of the benefits of a soul retrieval, is that it returns the gifts of strength, resilience and personal power that the lost soul parts embodied. People often report feeling calmer and more at peace than they have felt for years after receiving a soul retrieval.

Illuminations:

Our physical body is surrounded by a Luminous Energy Field (LEF)--our Aura. This energy field is an invisible matrix that holds the imprint of all our karmic, personal and ancestral memories, traumas and wounds. These imprints can become activated to mirror a personal history that repeats itself by compelling us towards behaviors, relationships, accidents or illnesses that replicate the original trauma. An Illumination is the shamanic clearing of the negative imprints in our Luminous Energy Field, it is an energy healing technique that uses special sacred medicine stones, called Khuyas, to remove heavy energy from the LEF.

An Illumination is helpful when:

  • You feel stuck in a behavioral pattern which continues to repeat itself
  • You are struggling to heal from traits (health or emotional) that are part of your ancestry
  • Emotional traumas of your past continue to haunt you and do not respond well to other healing modalities

During the Illumination, the imprints to the Luminous Energy Field appear as sluggish energy around the chakras. In the process of healing, the heavy emotional energy of the imprint is drained through the chakra, then the imprint itself is erased through the use of focused intention and breath. When the imprint is erased, we are no longer informed by the wounds of our past or ancestry.

Illuminations combined with Body-Trauma Release:

New research indicates that our body holds certain traumas somatically and needs guided motion, breath and physical release to remove a trauma imprint completely. If this is needed for a client’s healing, I find that Illuminations combined with somatic awareness and movement interventions are especially helpful. This process incorporates aspects of Somatic Experiencing and Sensorimotor techniques.

Spiritual Intrusions & Extractions:

Spiritual intrusions are caused by negative thought forms, (such as anger, grief or other unresolved feelings) that we have taken into our bodies in response to hurt or a projection from someone else. An intrusion can also begin from chronic self-abuse and negative self-talk or from a physical injury. The expression of being “stabbed in the back” is more than a simple metaphor. In the shamanic perspective, these are psychic darts and arrows that we encounter when negative thoughts and feelings are directed towards us. Some types of intrusions are past-life injuries that were severe enough to leave an imprint in our energy field and have become activated in our current life. An Intrusion can present as localized pain in the body: a phantom illness or location of pain that defies medical diagnosis. Left untended an intrusion can turn into an actual chronic illness. Intrusions often appear in situations where our Spirit has been weakened and made vulnerable by soul loss or power loss. A spiritual extraction involves removing and releasing the intrusion, clearing the affected area and is generally followed with a soul retrieval.

Compassionate Depossession:

Sometimes, a person who has experienced soul loss or other traumas may find that they have become a host to suffering beings or entities. These suffering beings may live off of a person’s energy and influence them in a variety of ways. Illness, depression, substance abuse, phobias, emotional problems, suicidal tendencies and other issues may be in part due to the influence or overshadowing of beings that have attached to the client. These beings are generally people whose own experience at the time of death has become compromised in such a way that they did not successfully make their own journey to the Light. Compassionate Depossession is a humane therapy that benefits both the client and the attached suffering being, even if that suffering being is reluctant to cross into the Light.

Historically this type of healing has been is known by a number of different names: Spirit- Releasing, Depossession, Exorcism, Casting out Demons, Psychopomp or Clearings. For the sake of clarity, I will briefly describe these to give context to the work I do.

Spirit-Releasing is a modern, more benign and emotionally-neutral umbrella term for: Moving a lost soul from the Middle World towards the “Light” whether that soul is attached to a person (possession) or place (haunting).

The term Depossession, refers to removing a spirit (of someone who has not crossed over to the Light) that has attached to a living person.

The terms, Exorcist or Casting out Demons, generally come from Catholic or other Christian Churches. The belief is that some type of evil spirit has attached to (or possessed) a person, and that spirit must be banished or cast towards Hell. The assumption is that any possessing spirit is “Evil”, and that its destination is “Hell”. This old-school type of spirit removal was often done in an adversarial, battle-like mode. By approaching spirit release in an antagonistic way, this modality of depossession created a lot of drama, stress and danger for all involved: client, practitioner and spirit, and did not always produce the desired results.

Psychopomp, is an ancient Greek term: psycho=spirit, and pomp=to conduct; meaning a “Conductor of Souls” or “One who guides the souls of the dead to the light.” This can refer to the person (noun) who guides the souls, or the act (verb) of guiding the souls. The Psychopomp can be a shaman, or a person specially trained in helping the dead. The ceremony or ritual of moving a soul from the Middle World to the Light can also be called, Psychopomp, whether the soul is being moved from a person or place.

Clearing, is the term usually used for removing heavy energies or spirits from a PLACE. This can be either a place that is Haunted (the presence of a ghost), or simply has lots of yucky energy, (often due to a history of traumatic events) but doesn’t have a ghost.

Compassionate Depossession, is a term coined by a Buddhist-trained shamanic practitioner, named Betsy Bergstrom, who developed a modern, peaceful, non-adversarial approach to dealing with ALL FORMS of suffering beings. This practice of spirit-release work, includes working with so-called “demonic” and extra-terrestrial (ET) types of beings. This is a kinder and no-drama way of helping a spirit move towards the Light. After training in many styles of depossession work, I find this method most effective and it is the way I now practice this type of healing modality.

Symptoms of possession may include:

  • Suicidal tendencies
  • Hearing voices or having intrusive thoughts that don’t feel like your own
  • Depression, Anxiety, Obsessions
  • An onset of phobias that do not relate logically to any life experience or event
  • Phantom pain or symptoms of illness that are not medically diagnosable
  • Inexplicable mood swings, personality shifts or irrational thoughts
  • Substance abuse, binges, or uncontrollable addictions

Compassionate Depossession helps these souls move to a place of peace and frees the client from the influences of the suffering being.

Space Clearings: SEE ALSO “EARTH HEALING” PAGE

The spiritual clearing of land, a home, office or other space may be needed if you or others are having any of the following experiences in a particular location:

  • A room, space or place feeling cold, dark or depressing for no apparent reason
  • A repeating theme of unfortunate “accidents” or “bad luck” incidents in a location
  • Experiencing human activity where there is none
  • Inexplicable instances of objects moving, disappearing or appearing
  • Lights and electrically powered objects going on or off

In general, these type of experiences can be attributed to either an imprint of some type of trauma that happened at that location or (in the case of moving objects or electrical anomalies) activities one would associate with a place being “haunted”. Clearing involves removing the heavy energy from a past trauma in a place, or communicating with a lost Spirit(s) and moving them to a place of peace, (or both) followed by re-energizing and balancing the space.

Ancestral Healing:

We carry in our bodies the stories, illnesses, tragedies, pain, and grief of our ancestors. Oftentimes we are unconscious of how the energy of old family wounds informs how we think and act in everyday life. This is why we see patterns of abuse, incest, addiction, poor health and many other traits passed down through generations. From a shamanic perspective, these traits are seen as energetic imprints in our Luminous Energy Field (read Illuminations) which need to be cleared so the ancestral pattern ceases to inform our behavior or health.

In my practice I have found that many people with traumatic family histories need ancestral healing for personal healing to occur.

Ancestral imprints may manifest as:

  • A debilitating belief or emotion which you share with other members of your family lineage
  • A particularly destructive behavior such as substance abuse, addiction or incest which runs through your family
  • Health problems or accidents that appear in “themes” along a male or female lineage. For example: men of the family having heart attacks in their mid 40’s or back injuries that befall women of the family at a particular age

Ancestral healing involves clearing the imprint from our body by integrating several different shamanic healing methods. Generally this requires several sessions which would include an Illumination, extraction, soul retrieval and the spirit releasing of deceased relatives. Ancestral healing helps us step out of the patterns we have lived so we can walk our path with clarity and make peace with our family histories.

Curse Unraveling:

Throughout history, shamans have worked with healing the effects of sorcery and curses. This is as much a part of our modern culture as it was a part of ancient times. Sorcery often affects us in the form of a curse, but can also include Love Spells, Soul-binding promises and other seemingly benevolent types of Spell-Casting. Sorcery is defined as any harm directed to ourselves or others: The abuse of power even with good intentions, the over-riding of another person’s free-will… Curses often present as repeating unhealthy patterns like: Compulsive thoughts, a feeling of being under attack, feeling bound to another person or place against your will, chronic accidents, injuries, illness or other types of repeating “bad luck”. Some of these patterns can be rooted in past-life events or are passed down through the family lineage. Sometimes sorcery can be a family projection that we have taken on and embodied; “She was the black sheep of the family.”--The target child fulfils the family projection of failure or not fitting in. In addition there is self-sorcery--curses that are negative thought forms which we fuel and perpetuate on ourselves.

With curse unraveling the Shaman, through visioning and journeying, tracks to the original source of the curse, un-couples it, and unravels it through time out of the client’s energy field, thus unbinding the client to the energy that was sent.

What to expect in a session:

A typical session for a shamanic healing may take 3-4 hours. Most people come by themselves, but if you wish you may bring your partner, a friend, a family member or your therapist to a session. What is important to me is that you are with someone whom you feel safe as well as being able to speak openly without hiding or editing information. All shamanic work is private and strictly confidential. I usually start by asking questions that help me learn about your history and struggles. Together we identify what issues are in need of healing.

After the initial interview, sacred space is created which can include prayer, song, invocation, calling the directions, rattling or drumming. I begin each healing with a profound, passionate prayer asking the Spirits to help with a healing that is most helpful at this time in your life. In a partial trance supported by the sound of the drum, I receive instruction from my Spiritual helpers on what needs to be done. Each healing is unique to the client and reflects what the individual needs. Typically, I will perform a combination of healing methods, depending on how I am directed by Spirit. Your healing may include a soul retrieval, power animal retrieval, illumination or extraction.

At the end of the healing, energy is blown into the heart and crown of the head, and chakras are illuminated and rebalanced. The drumming stops and I share the story of the healing information I have received for you. If you would like to record this, please bring your own tape recorder or a journal to take notes. Illuminations, Compassionate Depossession, Curse Unraveling, or ancestral healing involve slightly different methods. All of this work comes from a place of Divine Love, Light and connection with the Creator.

After the healing I will discuss with you any “homework” or lifestyle change that may be necessary to support your healing process. I encourage people to contact me within a week or two after the healing to discuss any effects they are experiencing from the work, and to determine if additional work needs to be done.

Depending on the nature of the work involved, significant healing can be accomplished in 1 to 3 sessions. Many clients find that one session is all they need. The success is affected by the intensity of your desire for healing, and your willingness to actively create healing patterns in your life.

Preparation before and after a healing:

Schedule your appointment so you have time afterwards for yourself.

Having a clear intention and desire for healing (as well as being willing to let go of old patterns that are unhealthy) strengthens the effects of the healing.

Identify for yourself the following:

  • What is not working in my life?
  • What feels out of balance?
  • What is missing, or what qualities have I lost which I long to reclaim?
  • Are there unhealthy patterns in my life which keep repeating?
  • Are there people in my life to which I have an unhealthy connection?
  • Are there places in my body where I am regularly feeling pain?
  • Does my life feel out of control?
  • Are there themes in my ancestry which are getting repeated in my life?
  • Why am I feeling called to seek spiritual healing now?

Ask for a dream the night before, or pray for relief from your suffering as a way of setting your intention. It is important to avoid alcohol or recreational drugs for 24 hours before and after your healing. After your session it may take 1-3 days to fully integrate the healing you have received. Be sure to take time afterwards to nurture yourself. The effects of the healing can be gradual or dramatic, each individual experiences this differently.

You may wish to follow your session with some shamanic counseling so you can cultivate your own inner strength and balance. I encourage people to educate themselves about shamanism. Excellent books to read are, Sandra Ingerman’s, Soul Retrieval or Welcome Home, Alberto Villoldo’s, Shaman, Healer Sage as well as Michael Harner’s, The Way of the Shaman.

Long Distance Healing:

Appointments for long distance healings can be scheduled if it is not possible to meet in person. Generally, I find that healings done in person have the most powerful impact and I strongly recommend an in person session over a long distance one, but there are times when this is simply not possible.

When this is the case, we can set up a healing time by phone. I will start by conducting a phone interview to identify which issues are in need of healing. Then, off the line, I will ask you to stay in an uninterrupted, and receptive state of stillness while I energetically connect to what healing needs to be done. I will perform the healing by sending the healing energy to you. I will call you when the healing is complete and I will describe what transpired during the healing. In general, certain types of healings (particularly clearings) are best done in person. Also, with certain individuals I may require an in person session.

Long distance sessions must be paid with a credit card or PayPal, or can be prepaid with a check or money order.

What to expect from a shamanic healing session? (2018)©

Shamanic healing works with the energetic & spiritual aspects of illness, emotional traumas, and personal imbalance. This is very powerful work and often people come to me when they have exhausted their options of using western medicine and traditional psychotherapy to get better. Sometimes people come to me because they are having “phantom symptoms” that doctors cannot diagnose and keep getting negative tests on. Sometimes people come because they are at an impasse with their therapist regarding an issue that they feel stuck in. Sometimes you just know that what you need help with is something beyond the normal realms of healing.

Depending on the nature of the work involved, significant healing can be accomplished in 1 to 3 sessions. Many clients find that one session is all they need. The success is affected by the intensity of your desire for healing, and your willingness to actively create new healthy ways of living your life.

Types of shamanic healing:

  • Power Loss—Retrieving a spirit ally (like a power animal or guide) for protection and support.
  • Soul Loss--Returning & healing disassociated aspects of ourselves that left because of a trauma.
  • Energy extraction--Removing/clearing stuck or painful energies that may be thought-forms or past-life injuries.
  • Spirit Releasing (Depossession)--sending to the Light lost souls who may have become attached to you.
  • Ancestral Healing--Clearing unhealthy patterns that run in your ancestral line and are affecting you.
  • Past-Life healing--Clearing patterns that come from a past life event that are affecting your current life.
  • Illuminations--Releasing from your energy field energy trauma and stuck, thought-form imprints.
  • Curse Removal--Unraveling energies that may be tied to chronic bad-luck or misfortune.

Structure of a session:

My sessions generally run 3-4 hours, sometimes longer for really severe cases.

First part: 1-2 hours: I interview you and gather history about what has happened to you and what is going on in your life. I will listen to your stories, ask you questions and do some brief diagnostic journeys to determine what type of healing is going to be needed.

Second part: 1-2 hours: We enter into ceremonial time and I begin doing the actual healing work. Some of this is done talking, some is done in silence. My work commonly involves several different types of healings in one session which may include: Soul retrieval, extraction, Ancestral work, spirit release, power animal retrieval, etc. Each person needs something different.

Third part: 30 min: Sharing & Integration; Here I will share with you a healing story of what I did in my healing work. After the healing I will discuss with you any “homework” or lifestyle change that may be necessary to support your healing process, including self-care and integration of the process.

Scheduling:

I work out of my home in the countryside near New Glarus, Wisconsin, USA. Appointments must be scheduled. Since my sessions can be 3-4 hours long, I prefer starting times between 10:00am and 3:00pm CST. I generally do not work evenings, but I will make exceptions depending on the circumstances. When available, I take weekend appointments if I am not teaching a class. I prefer to only see one client a day. However, I will make exceptions when two people come from out-of-town together each seeking a session. Once we decide on a date and time, I will send you a confirmation with directions and additional information regarding preparation for your healing session.

Working with Children:

I work with children of all ages. I find that children are generally very responsive to shamanic healing, and in some ways seem to receive it better than adults. Sessions for children under 12 are usually much shorter (often under 2 hours), as they don’t tend to need or want much talk processing prior to the healing work. For teens, sessions are often the same length as adults. Teenagers are under much duress these days. There is a lot of psychic attack that teens can do to one another, so shamanic work that includes learning how to protect yourself energetically is extremely helpful for them.

Long distance healing:

Appointments for long distance healings can be scheduled if it is not possible to meet in person. Generally, I find that healings done in person have the most powerful impact and I strongly recommend an in-person session over a long distance one, but there are times when this is simply not possible.

When this is the case, I do healing sessions over the phone at a mutually agreed appointment time. I will start by conducting a phone interview to identify which issues are in need of healing. Then, off the line, I will ask you to stay in an uninterrupted, and receptive state of stillness while I energetically connect to what healing needs to be done. I will perform the healing--sending the healing energy to you. This will be followed by a phone call where I will describe what transpired during the healing, and share any important information for integration of the healing.

In general, Soul Retrieval, Power Animal Retrieval, Curse Unraveling and basic extractions can be done over the phone. Certain types of healings (particularly depossessions and clearings) are only done in person. Also, with certain individuals I may require an in-person session. Long distance sessions generally run 2-3 hours ($200- $300) and need to be paid via PayPal, credit or debit card. Some additional fees may be charged for international calls.

COST:

My rate is $100/hour, so the average session will cost between $300-$400. I accept payment in the form of cash, check or credit/debit card (MC, VISA, AMEX, Discover) and PayPal.

This work is done as a form of spiritual service. If you know you will have difficulty paying this please let me know in advance and we can agree on a cost that accommodates you. However, I cannot accept post-session payment plans or trades.

REDUCED RATE PHONE SESSIONS:

For people who are seeking shamanic work, but can’t afford a full length session, I am now offering specialized phone sessions at a fixed rate of $150. These sessions focus on one issue only and exclusively work with soul retrieval, power animal retrieval and limited extraction work. In these sessions, I ask that you focus your request on one particular trauma or issue you want help with. The phone session includes: ½ hour interview, ½ hour healing and ½ hour processing afterwards. The session is conducted like a long distance session (see above). Please specify at the time that you make your appointment that this is the type of session you wish to have. Payments can be made with a credit/debit card and PayPal, or prepaid with a check or money order.

Preparation before and after a healing:

Schedule your appointment so you have time afterwards for yourself. Having a clear intention and desire for healing (as well as being willing to let go of old patterns that are unhealthy) strengthens the effects of the healing.

Identify for yourself the following:

  • What is not working in my life?
  • What feels out of balance?
  • What is missing, or what qualities have I lost which I long to reclaim?
  • Are there unhealthy patterns in my life which keep repeating?
  • Are there people in my life to which I have an unhealthy connection?
  • Are there places in my body where I am regularly feeling pain or discomfort?
  • Does my life feel out of control?
  • Are there themes in my ancestry which are getting repeated in my life?
  • Why am I feeling called to seek spiritual healing now?

Ask for a dream the night before, or pray for relief from your suffering as a way of setting your intention.  I prefer that you avoid alcohol or recreational drugs for 24 hours before and after your healing. After your session it may take 1-3 days to fully integrate the healing you have received. Be sure to take time afterwards to nurture yourself. The effects of the healing can be gradual or dramatic, each individual experiences this differently.

Questions: If you have further questions or wish to make an appointment, you can contact me via phone or email. FYI: I tend to respond faster to emails!

Healing Testimonials:

Dear Ana

I don't remember if I ever really thanked you for the help you gave me a couple of years ago.

You might remember me as the one in which your spirit guide told you to disconnect me from my sugar addiction.

And - it has worked ever since!!!

I have lost over 80 pounds -- and have recently married (at age 55, I found the love of my life)

...and THAT was probably due to the successful exorcism you performed on my

Or, rather - - you freed me of an ancestral possession.

All the women in my family have been freed of this, because of your healing ability.

Yes, my mother is still emotionally/ mentally ill -- but her power is gone --

I can never thank you enough !!

...I've been meaning to give  you feedback for years --

Do you have a public feedback page? I'd like to give you a resounding A+++ publically

(with fewer personal details)

Blessings,

  1. P.

****************************************************************************************************

Wow, well how in the world do I thank you?

So much to tell that email just wouldn't be sensible.  So here's an attempt to summarize:

I feel calmer and more peaceful inside than I can ever remember feeling.

Zero instances of the intense "alone" feeling or deep sadness since the 14th.

I also feel like I'm not "scanning" people's energy, faces etc. looking for danger.  That's pretty automatic for me but it seems like it's reeeeally in the background right now, if there at all.

I have been able to speak my truth twice w/o even needing the cougar---no nervousness that I could perceive.  Messages coming to me about how I use language, not just speaking my truth but HOW I speak overall.

And, too many synchronicities to mention, mostly related to nature.  I'm getting messages and listening to them.

The 3 year old is hanging with me and starting to tell me what she wants/needs (what I want/need).  THAT is the most profound thing of all; I have a photo of myself at about that age (with my sister) and I look at it every morning/night and ask for guidance on what she needs.  The feeling I get in my gut when I look at her (ME!) is indescribable, in a good way.  I also talk to her (it's good to have a fertile imagination!).  She likes hiking with me.

Am also crying more easily when I feel the need; this is a hard thing for me, which I'm betting isn't a surprise to you.

Amazing.  I expected subtle changes, but much of this is NOT subtle.

I'll leave it at that for now.

I feel like "thank you" is really insufficient for expressing my gratitude.

Peace to you.

J.M.

Hi Ana!

I have had some good results with the healing. Thanks so much for your gifts, understanding, compassion, and professionalism. You are one of the best healers I have met. I feel lucky. I guess now I am attracting the good people now. It all how you believe and think, right!! I am tired today. I can breathe in town better. So that is good. I still have some residual affects but within time I hope it dissipates and goes away completely. I had problems being around my X today.  However, I can breathe around her. I just want to feel better completely. I have a lot more energy and am happier today. I want to meet up with you to get my gifts back. I will wait for 3-4 months. I want to be stronger and have to save the money. You are an awesome person. You were very eclectic. Sincerely, L. P.

***********************************************************************************************************

Hi Ana,

I came into our session yesterday not knowing what to expect, and came out of the session with a wealth of knowledge and a truly divine healing. I'm still speechless, in of course a wonderful way. I've received a piece of my soul back, and a restoration of my body that I truly needed at this time of my life. I walked out of the session feeling so happy and re-excited about life. Thank you for making me feel so at home in our session and giving me the gift of clarity! I'm so grateful for you, your spirit guides, angels and helpers, as well as mine! Thank you, again, and I will be referring my family, friends, and clients to you!

Cheers to many more sessions to come!

With love,

  1. O.

Hi Ana!

I just want to thank you for all your hard work you did on me on Saturday... I can not begin to tell you how different I feel! I woke up Sunday morning and aside from a little clicking in my knee I feel almost no pain in it at all! I got my period today and I only have mild discomfort instead of crippling pain… On top of all those changes already I have to tell you that on our way home on Saturday we almost got into a terrible accident… Someone pulled out in front of us while we were driving at a fairly high speed… They appeared to be intoxicated... I was driving and very calmly and quickly avoided the whole thing! Besides being mildly shaken I was totally fine! Dan could not believe how calm I was! I would've normally been a wreck and unable to continue driving but I felt fine and was able to shake everything off very quickly… I feel so uplifted… I've been falling asleep easier and waking up with far more energy… It is absolutely incredible how different I feel! Thank you so much! I hope you don't mind if I send people to you! I think your work is so important!

Thanks again!

Dear Ana,

Thank you so much for putting this together. Your presence is such a beautiful gift to this world. I am so grateful that you introduced me to my guides in November and got me started on my healing path. You changed my life.

Thank you for sharing your gifts with me and helping me discover my own.

Wishing you boundless happiness and peace,

  1. L.

Hi Ana,

Thank you for the extraordinary ways that you bless and heal. I am truly inspired by the scope of your work and can't help but sense that the unique workplace community I presently enjoy is owed to your initiative. The energy changes I've experienced over the past year already border on the miraculous and my life is further enhanced by an accompanying shift in perspective. I look forward to sharing good news with you as a result of today's session.

Ana,
I am so grateful to have met you. I have tried to heal for so long, prayed for so many years and sought the help of healers from all different religions, and I have NEVER felt like this in my life, never have I healed so extensively, felt so in my body, so confident, so me. I am proud of who I am, the world feels new, mysterious, exciting. I want to move forward and develop my gifts. The work you are doing is so real, so important, and I will be forever grateful.
Keep in touch,
F. C.

Hello Ana,

I want to thank you again for the gift your work has been to me.  I felt very safe and honored by your style and comfortable in your healing room.  It was a wonderful experience to have such a long time for myself, feeling a kinship with the spirituality of the Shamanic tradition.  I really appreciated experiencing the beauty of your prayers and your confidence with your guides and imaginative way of unraveling the threads of my stories.

The next day I ran into Hannah and today the woman who has been a challenge at work approached me and offered to help me in a way that was very unexpected.  I'm grateful to have moved some very old energy.

Blessings, D.M.

Hello Ana

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how grateful I am of your help in the process of my healing session. (You did an extraction, Illumination, and retrieval for me on November 11th.) I have felt less anxious and seem to be more mellow about not letting the small stuff get to me. I am in the process of reading the book Shaman Healer Sage and find it extremely interesting. My relation with my hubby seems better so far as well....and my fibro pain level not as intense....

Maybe some time I could come attend one of your workshops....

Thanks again

Blessings, P.M.

Hello Ana!

First off, I want to say once again THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for everything that you have done for me. This has been one of the most amazing events of my Metaphysical career & as I said before, you are a truly a gift to this world. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to meet with you & sincerely hope that one day I will be able to share my gifts with others as you have shared yours with me. I would also like to extend a large note of gratitude to your Spirit Helpers. I give thanks & honor them for their assistance, as well.

I've been doing extremely well these last few days. There have been two very dramatic changes that I have noticed already with me which I'm VERY happy about. The first is that my menstrual cycle has been completely normal since Friday & best of all NO CRAMPS. None, seriously! This has never happened to me before. The other thing that I've noticed is that my eating habits have improved tremendously. I've always struggled with my weight & had just recently come to realize that I was a diagnosable compulsive eater. Now, I actually don't want to overeat at all. I'm eating consciously & listening to my body while I do it. I feel secure & calm & peaceful & content. It's good!

I will write you again soon.

R.L.

Hola Ana,

I just wanted to write to you to tell you that I really enjoyed meeting you and our session yesterday. I also want to let you know that  I feel so much better about myself and life in general now... much lighter, and more "in control" of my life and its direction. My friend Laura said that to her I feel like a different person, "the way I used to be" when she first met me a few years ago.... Thank you so much for helping me to make it ok.
Muchas gracias again for everything, y saludos
S. O.

Ana! Ana! Ana! (and I am saying it RIGHT!!!) 🙂

I have been craving to write you. That session was so powerful/love-filled. Thank you thank you. I still have not talked to anyone about it that much really...It is difficult to talk about, I feel as though I do not really have the words to describe how intense and life-changing it was....

Good Morning Ana,

I have returned to work from my conference and I wanted to write and thank you.  I have so many thoughts and feelings yet to process and I am taking the time slowly.  I cannot thank you enough for your help and caring.  Words cannot express enough. You are a gift…

Peace to you always,

  1. W.

Hi Ana,

It's been over a year since you performed a ritual on me, which open my closed heart. I'm not sure if you recall any details, and it's not important that you do. I just wanted to thank you.

My relationship to those around me has changed radically since you did your thing. I feel liked and in turn enjoy most of the people I meet. I have increased compassion for others and I am usually able to see the good in people, even if they display weasel-like tendencies. I am less judgmental and feel a desire to help people to improve their standing in the world. I am really enjoying my new perspective. I owe you a great debt. I figure that the best way to repay it is to pass on your kindness to others in any way I can.

Sincerely,
C. A.

Greetings, Ana.

I have been meaning to write you for more than a year now to thank you. The session we had back in January 2007 was an amazing experience for me and it helped to dislodge the grief and guilt I'd been carrying for so long. My relationships and dynamics with the ex-partner and current partner with whom I was dealing directly at that time have improved immensely, in part due to the work I did that day with you. I feel lighter and freer than I ever have before. I thank you, my daughter thanks you, my partner thanks you, and my ex thanks you! We're all doing very well.
Peace to you,
V. G.

Hello Ana,

This is M. responding.

Thank you...deeply and sincerely...for the magical journey that you provided for me.  There are simply no words to adequately express the changes that I have experienced since we were together a week ago.

I am powerful and content.  I am connected to the soil and living creatures and plants surrounding my home.  My relationship with Monica has taken another quantum step in the continuing evolution of our sharing of this life.  I feel safe and able, with the tortoise, to deflect the barrage of poisons that continue to assail us.

I am aware that my body is continuing to heal from the damage that was done over all of those years in the past, both from without as well as from my own internal stress and negative energy.

These sentences feel superficial, but as I said - words are not an adequate means of expression for these changes.  Please accept my sincere gratitude for the gifts that you shared with me.

M.
