|About Soul Intent Arts - A Shamanic Approach To Healing
| The first thing to understand about shamanic, or spiritual healing, is that it is complementary to allopathic, naturopathic, and psychological approaches to wellbeing. It is not a substitute for medical or psychological diagnosis and treatment. Shamanic practitioners do not diagnose conditions, nor do they prescribe, perform medical treatment, prescribe substances, or interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional. I recommend that you see a licensed physician, or licensed health care professional for any physical, or psychological ailment that you have.
Given the range of techniques shamans use, it's important to understand how these skills apply to everyday life. In the most broad perspective, shamans promote healing. Opening communication with the spirit realm can open you to your own healing ability, body, mind, soul, and emotion. Likewise, shamanic healing complements various belief systems and religious perspectives. The shamanic tenet that all things have a soul pervades all techniques used by me in my practice. Thus, you do not have to hold a particular belief system for shamanic healing to work, save that you realize that no healing occurs without your consent. No shaman, doctor, surgery, or medication can heal you. You heal yourself. You make the conscious decision to allow whatever healing modality you receive to actually heal yourself. Healing is your personal agreement between yourself and Spirit. Know that when you interact in the journey state, you are in the space to directly access yourself at the central levels of being. You can reshape your physical and spiritual DNA, taking command of the creative ability with which Spirit blessed you. Through understanding your ability to co-create your own life with Spirit, you not only improve your own quality of life, but that of All Life.
Many of my clients begin our work together with a soul reading, which can be done in person or by distance, as a basic check-in with their spiritual sources. My approach to soul work requires your active participation in your healing process. For any technique, there is only so far I can go in facilitating the space and life force to create balance for another person. At some point in that process, if not for the entire process, you must take an active role in healing yourself. I encourage you to make this agreement with yourself from the beginning of our work together, so that you not only get the most out our time together, but that you reach your goals in wellness.
Contact me with questions or insights about your healing path. I would love to know of the miracles in your life.
