Shamanic Energy Medicine, in the tradition of the Andean Medicine, is based on the understanding that we each have a "luminous body," an energy field where imprints of trauma, past and future disease, unresolved issues and other "dense energies" reside and can block our well-being.
Shamanic healing participation offers powerful avenues for directly accessing, clearing, healing and re-informing old traumas, souls contracts, ancestral patterns and other powerful energies imprinted on our luminous energy field, sometimes for many lifetimes.
The power of Energy Medicine is its ability to transmute heavy or toxic energies that are clogging our luminous energy field, the places of our soul wounds. As the luminous field is cleared we become more empowered, our life begins to shift in ways we never imagined, and we can reclaim our authentic self – our gifts, our purpose, passion. Each time we clear an imprint or toxic energies, we re-inform it with the original blueprint of Love, Essence, Pure Light – our true sources of power.
Disease within the physical body occurs at the cellular and bimolecular levels. Shamanic healing has the capacity to extend from the bimolecular level to cellular and finally to the anatomical.

Shamanism is the practice of these core techniques, either for healing or to gain spiritual knowledge. Shamanism is sometime studied with the cultural reference, sometimes without, but the essential nature of the shamanic practice does not change, nor has it changed since ancient times. It has adapted to fit the times or the culture, but its essential core has been the same.
Shamanism is not a religion, not unless you want to make it into one. It has been and is being practiced by peoples of many religions, from Christianity, to Judaism, to Hinduism. You will find shamanic practitioners of every faith.
What is Shamanism?
It is a direct experience of spiritual knowledge. Because of the direct nature of the work, it tends to facilitate growth in every religious faith. People will share shamanic experiences in groups, but the insight you gain from shamanic practice are unique to you.
As a healing practice shamanism has been very powerful for both the people of today and those reaching back into the beginnings of recorded history.
The reason that it is so powerful is because each healing is tailored to the needs of the individual being healed. Western medicine seeks to find one cure that works for many, if the number it helps is too small it isn't offered at all. The shaman provides unique treatment, which holistically addresses what a person needs at this time.
In order to communicate with the spirit or consciousness of these things, the shaman will shift his or her own state of awareness. Shamans can do this through various means, such as meditation, repetitive sounds such as that of the drum or rattle, or through the help of plants. The shaman will then "see" through a new set of eyes, they will see what is going on with you on a spiritual level. The shaman's practice is also characterized by the soul flight. The shift of consciousness that the shaman makes, which allows the free part of his or her soul to leave the body. The shaman can then go retrieve information for your healing and growth. They can retrieve healing power, or things that you have lost along the way in living your life. During the soul flight the shaman is both in the room, and going on this "journey" so that he or she has an awareness of both at the same time.
There are certain techniques or perhaps skills that are, and seeing are some of the skills a shaman may or may not posses, the ability to work over a long distance.
