Shamanic healing enables us to trace the root of a problem and change our affinity for the issue within our energy system. This, in turn, frees us from old binding thought patterns and behaviours and connects us to the infinite possibilities available to us in this beautiful universe we are connected to.
Illumination has been practiced for thousands of years and is a powerful tool for personal transformation. Its underlying principle is that our emotional, genetic and karmic history organises energy, often leaving dense or heavy imprints in our luminous field, which creates emotional and physical dysfunction.
This process brings us back into balance; into what Inca shamans call Ayni, or proper relationship with all life, so that the universe can again work on our behalf. The illumination process achieves healing in three ways. First, it burns up the sludge and deposits adhering to the walls of a chakra. This promotes longevity and strengthens the immune response. Second, it combusts the toxic energy around malignant and emotional imprints. This is the fuel that an imprint chooses to express itself. Third, it scours clean the imprints in the Luminous Energy Field. The illumination process connects us to the source, at the blueprint level of our being. When these imprints are erased, one can readily change negative emotions and behaviours. The power of the immune system is unleashed, so that physical healing can be accelerated.
An illumination simply helps to release the heaviness and allows us to gain perspective on an issue from our Luminous Energy Field. It clears any affinities we may be holding onto in our body by allowing us to blow this heaviness into a khuya (a stone from Ali’s mesa imbued with loving kindness) and re-sets our blueprint. Blowing your issues and heaviness into a stone is a simple practice, yet it gives an almost holographic image of the energy in your luminous energy field. The khuya is placed on the lowest chakra that’s out of balance and this then holds the energy while we work together.
Light is brought in from the 8th chakra into the area to illuminate and clear any heaviness. The main ingredient of an illumination is our intention to bring the situation back into balance and your breath.
Breathing is one of the most fundamental, yet under – rated things we can do to help ourselves (apart from drinking more water!). Often, we forget to breathe but remember that breathing helps everything in our body and in our life to flow. It helps us to let go of heavy emotions and replenish our bodies with light nectar or ‘sami’.
Tracking an issue helps me to have a snapshot of where you are on your journey. Tracking your energy field on four different levels: Physical, emotional, soul and spirit with the four different archetypes: Serpent, Jaguar, hummingbird and Eagle. This type of tracking will give me a clearer, fuller picture of what needs to be done, whether it’s soul retrieval or a rite of passage.
There are two kinds of extraction that I regularly use:
