shamanic Healing & journeying through Sound
What is Shamanism? Shamanism encompasses a range of ancient healing and tribal traditions. Shamanic practices are ways in which we may connect to our most natural state & ultimately with creation & creator itself.
The word shaman originates from the Tungus tribe in Siberia. Anthropologists who studied cultural tribal structures brought this term to the western world, it has since become a broadly used term to refer to spiritual healers & ceremonial leaders.
The word shamanism can be used to describe a variety of ancient spiritual practices of indigenous cultures. Many similarities were noted between ancient traditions around the world...the role of the Shaman was clearly understood to play a significant part in each tribal community and still does to this day.
Shamans are often the naturopath, therapist, healer, the bridge between the seen and unseen worlds, the story-teller and consciousness gate-keeper. The shaman facilitates coherence, harmony, re-connection to Source and remembering of one's true Natural Soul Essence.
Shamanism carries a Universal spiritual wisdom inherent to all indigenous tribes, this includes All of our ancient ancestors no matter your genetic background.
One form of shamanic practice is to use sound as a healing or journeying modality...
Shamanic sound processing, shamanic journeying, and “soul retrieval”:
One form of shamanic practice is to use sacred sound as a healing and/or journeying modality. common instruments used are drums & other PERCUSSION'S, singing bowls, various forms of vocals such as toning, singing & chanting, rattles, didgeridoo, gongs, bells, chimes etc.
Sound healing and shamanism are growing therapeutic fields, proven to enhance wellness and creativity at many levels of our being.
Cultures throughout the world have utilized sound, coupled with deep consciousness & altered states as a means for self or tribal healing and overall well-being.
modern concepts of shamanism understand these principals, but often do not encompass the broad use of sound coupled with clear intention, which ancient medicine peoples of most traditional cultures have utilized for eons. sound can create a bridge of self to the spirit worlds for use of various types of healing.
this process can assist with creating deeper personal healing, connection with the natural world: animals, the elements, the earth, cosmos, our ancestors and ultimately our own soul.
the experience of Shamanic journey can assist us to re-integrate aspects of ourselves which we may have disassociated from through various traumatic experiences in this life and or other life-times. (this is sometimes referred to as “soul retrieval”.)
utilized as a Divine Art, the practitioner & client's intention can result in higher states of realized being and ground those states into new outcomes for daily life. Deepening an understanding of yourself makes life much more enjoyable and interesting!
shamanic Journeying and healing is a mystical way of self exploration which can help one expand personal gifts that may have otherwise been unrecognized.
It is through access of these sacred states of consciousness that reignites our connection with our true essence & divine natural wisdom. this wisdom ultimately resides in All Life, and is from the source of all Creation.
the source of creation also lives within you. once you discover this truth within yourself, a greater sense of personal significance unfolds, providing a spark for living a fuller existence.
While the traditional scientific jury is still out on the proof of sound as 'healing', there is most certainly proof of the emotional and psychological effects which can enhance one's well-being and support the healing process.
One of sound healing’s biggest mainstream advocates was the late Mitchell Gaynor, an oncologist and clinical assistant professor at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York and director of medical oncology at the school’s Center for Integrative Medicine.
Gaynor encouraged sound therapy alongside conventional medicine, arguing that relaxed patients have lower stress hormones, stronger immune systems, and better tools to cope with the psychological and physical effects of their disease and treatment.
Gaynor was turned on to sound healing in the early 1990s, when a Tibetan patient gifted him a traditional singing bowl.
“If somebody had told me when I was a medical student in Dallas, Texas, that one day I would be teaching my patients to use singing bowls to heal themselves, I would have thought he or she was crazy,” Gaynor wrote in the 1999 book The Healing Power of Sound.
