Shamanic Healing Modalities

ancestral healing

Robin's work is 100% Spirit-directed.

I tell my clients that I can only do what your body and soul in conjunction with Spirit allow me to do. My only goal is to be a clear and open channel for Divine Healing, Divine Wisdom and Divine Love to flow through me for your highest healing.

Each client and each situation is different. When a client aarrives for a session, Robin scans and reads the energy body and receives information including the healing modalities that are recommended for the client. It is normal to have more than one healing modality done in a session.

Soul Retrieval

shamanic healing

One of the most common and universal techniques a shaman employs is retrieval of a lost soul part.

Soul loss occurs when we experience any kind of trauma, shock, pain or loss. A part of the soul, an essence, leaves the body as a natural self-defense mechanism to avoid the pain of a particular experience.

Symptoms of soul loss include depression, suicidal ideation, addiction, chronic illness, prolonged grief, PTSD, blank gaps in memory, and disconnection with the body.

Causations of soul loss include, but are not limited to any kind of abuse, whether it be physical, mental, emotional, sexual, or spiritual abuse, the death of a loved one, including the death of a pet, divorce or separation (your own or your parents), any kind of an accident, hospitalization, surgery, childbirth, long-term illness, financial loss, loss of home, experiencing natural disasters, war or violence.

Shamans work with a client to locate, heal and bring back lost soul parts and to assist the client in processing and integrating the return of the soul parts.

Power Retrieval

Shamans believe that each of us has a spirit guardian whose job it is to protect and empower us throughout our life.

These guardians are from the nature kingdom and may come in the form of an animal, winged one or being from the waters. They are here to serve as compassionate and benevolent allies and protectors, and each one has great wisdom and brings specific power, strength, protection, talents and purpose to assist an individual on his/her path in life.

Shamans believe we are all born with power allies/guides/guardians. However, at various times in our lives, we can all benefit from having additional power to help us when we are recovering from illness, surgery, trauma, or trying to start something new or leave something behind. Power retrieval also addresses the issue of power loss. Symptoms of power loss may include: chronic illness, chronic misfortune or bad luck, frequent accidents, long-term patterns of victimization, and depression.

Power retrieval is a healing modality and a great gift to receive. It is important to note that a shaman does not choose your power ally. Spirit reads your heart and knows exactly what you need. It is the shamans job to locate your power and bring it to you with information as to the specific gifts and assistance that the ally offers to you.

Misplaced energy can have its origin from many different sources, including toxic energy, curses, spirit possession, and negative thought forms, such as anger, hatred, envy, jealousy, bitterness, and resentment.

Symptoms of intrusions of unwanted energy may include sudden onset of pain, extreme tiredness and exhaustion, sudden change in mood or personality including anger, depression, suicidal ideation.

Symptoms may include localized pain, sudden anger, depression, and suicidal thoughts. Misplaced energy in its most extreme form would include possession and the shaman's job is to remove the possessing spirit from the client.

Soul Remembering

ancestral healing

The shaman travels to the client's soul to receive information on the client's life purpose, including what talents, skills and gifts this individual has and how the soul wants these to be utilized.

The shaman brings to the client this information along with a symbol which the soul has given to the shaman to bring to the client as a reminder of who they are on a core level, the Light they carry, and their connection to God/Divine.

Divination and Dream Interpretation

Divination is used when appropriate to provide the client with information for a deeper understanding and clarity on issues, situations and events which would be helpful and healing for the client.

Dreams can be interpreted by the shaman or by the client with the shaman's facilitation by re-entering the dream with a spiritual ally to ask for the meaning and significance of the dream.

Ancestral Work

There are times when ancestral work is necessary for an individual to move forward on his/her path.

Whether we like it or not, we are the sum total of our ancestors embodied here on earth. We carry their gifts, talents, courage, and biology, and we may also carry their negative beliefs, thought patterns, and contracts (both conscious and unconscious) they had when they were alive. For example, many women unconsciously carry the limiting beliefs from the women in their lineage about who they can be as women in this world. Part of the ancestral work I do is to locate the negative belief that has flowed through the family line, determine where it resides in the body of the client and release it, thereby freeing the client from the negative or limiting belief. This work may or may not involve bringing an ancestor in to the session.

Other types of ancestral healing include helping the client to forgive a deceased parent or grandparent for wrongs that were done, lifting of family curses, removal of unhealthy family contracts, healing a deceased soul or group of souls in the family, and assisting the client in completion of unfinished family business.

Psychopomp Work

shamanic healing soul retrieval

The word 'psychopomp' is derived from Greek and means 'leader of souls'.

The shaman assists a person who has died to cross over to the Light. For a variety of reasons, some individuals remain earthbound after death instead of crossing over into the Light.

Some situations which cause an individual's spirit to remain on earth after death include, a sudden and unexpected death (including murder, death through war, an accident or suicide), or a deep attachment to a person or family or a strong desire to complete some remaining unfinished business.

A shaman's job is to help that individual soul move out of this dimension upon death, and take it to the Light.
