Curing vs Healing There is a difference between “curing” and “healing.”
Updated: Mar 1, 2021
There is a difference between “curing” and “healing.” Curing is the business of doctors, healing is the business of shamans.
Curing consists of treating disease and eliminating symptoms. We all know people who have received cures but have not experienced healing. Unfortunately, their symptoms generally return.
Healing addresses the cause of disease, which shamans believe is due to imprints of trauma stored in a person’s Bio- Energy field or Aura. While healing, shamans measure success by increased wellbeing, a sense of newfound peace and empowerment, and a feeling of communion with all life.
No two shamanic energy healing sessions are identical, although most begin with an initial interview during which the client describes the physical or emotional symptoms they are experiencing, as well as problems that may be arising in their life. Depending on individual needs, sessions can take up to an hour or longer.
I like to tell people that we are our dreams and not our genes. If we don’t upgrade our bio - energy field, if we don’t come up with new dreams to carry us forth in life, we will keep replaying and repeating the nightmare that we inherited through genetics. Shamans know that we can modify our genetics through our energy field. That it is possible to access password protected areas that switch on the genes that create health.
Cutting edge neuroscience is now confirming what shamans have known all along. Thanks to neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to organize itself into higher order neuro circuitry, we can create psychosomatic health.
Biology is telling us about epigenetics, our ability to modify our genetic expression through what we eat, drink, and breathe; through the thoughts we have, and the love that we experience in our lives. In fact, only 10 percent of our health or illness is influenced by our genes. The other 90 percent is a result of our lifestyle … and our dreams.
When we upgrade the quality of the bio-energy field by clearing the imprints of trauma and disease, we create the energetic conditions for health and disease goes away. This is the foundation of Shamanic Energy Medicine: To create and maintain extraordinary health, so that our health span equals our lifespan.
I always begin a healing session by opening Sacred Space, where I am working, calling in the Four Directions, Earth and Heaven. This creates a stable, safe environment in which to work. Next, I open my personal sacred space around myself and my client. This is the place outside of time where all possibility exists.
In a first session with a client I typically begin by “tracking” or noticing, any energies in my client’s bio-energy field that don’t belong there and need to be removed. I might use my hands above my client’s body to sense these energies, and sometimes will also use a rattle in our session.
Once the energy is cleansed, the chakra is spun clockwise to rebalance the energy and reestablish the proper direction of spin. As I work, I might quietly describe what I am doing, or I might remain silent. The client, in the meantime, may experience warmth, tingling, emotional release or deep relaxation.
At the end of the session I will close my field and then close Sacred Space with a prayer of thanks, releasing the six directions. I then will encourage my client to slowly sit up and we discuss what took place, giving my client exercises to practice at home that will assist in their healing process. Follow-up sessions might be recommended that could include an Illumination, Extraction or Soul Retrieval.
In the days that follow a healing session, my client may feel unusually tired or need more quiet time as releasing and energy shifting continue. The transformative experience of healing is reflected in every aspect of life relationships, diet, job, marriage, how you relate to your children, as well as how you experience wellness and illness. There is so much more that I will be share in the coming weeks about the sacred work I been doing and explaining more about Karmic imprints. Looking forward to share with you more soon.
All my Love
