I want you to imagine you were a beautiful stone when you came into this life, smooth, solid and whole. Then BAM! A traumatic event happened, your beautiful stone exploited into pieces scattering everywhere.
After your pieces landed you begin the challenging task of gathering them up, doing your best to put yourself back together, but you probably could found it hard to gathered everything and put yourself totally back together.
Some parts you believe were taken from you; to protect yourself you hide some parts to stay safe; other parts you simply never found because you didn’t know how to at the time; or you were told to “move on”, “get over it”, so those parts were lost and left behind.
The traumatic event(s) probably happened so long ago that you let yourself forget about them, and you needed to push down the memories so deep in order to help you cope. I understand, you had to move forward with your life.
But what happened as a result of this wasn’t healing. Your being never really forgot. Do you often keep experiencing, repeating, reliving, the same event, situation in some way, but you don’t understanding why these things keeps happening to you? Just because you pushed away the memories or believed you were over them doesn’t equal healing them.
You might even be aware of your patterns and their source, I bet you have tried to change but not matter how much to tell yourself or try to do things differently things shift for a while but eventually you go back to acting the same. Sadly you end up blaming yourself, or others for your pain. You end up feeling ashamed and disappointed believing you are not strong enough, good enough, brave enough, you mustn’t deserve it so you stay stuck. Longing to feel whole you turn to outside things to fill in your holes but nothing really works, everything just leaves you feeling empty.
Shamanism recognizes this as Soul Loss, where parts of yourself are still left scattered along your life timeline. Most of us have never been taught how to heal properly we’re left thinking we have to just move on and everything will be OK.
I believe true healing only happens when we work from a subconscious level, the part of our mind that stores unhealthy patterns, and limiting beliefs, previous experience, memories, feelings, and skills.
The subconscious mind is the system that runs everything in your life, which is why I believe talking and thinking about your problems it’s enough to fully change them. If you don’t address the subconscious mind and what it holds it will always win because it is the guidance system that controls all your actions. You act, think and do things mostly on feelings, even though you might think it’s the opposite.
It’s our actions that create our patterns. Every time you have an idea, or an emotion, a memory or an image from the past the subconscious mind communicates to the conscious mind. And then you act on this information. Now you see that the subconscious mind is running the show; you see how your patterns are constantly being enforced and mastered; but with awareness you can take action to change them.
That’s where Shamanism can help. This healing modality takes you into these altered states of consciousness via Shamanic journeying and energy work allowing you to enter into a light trance state in order to access the deeper levels of your subconscious mind. It’s in this space that you can gain insight into why you do what you do and it’s in this realm of consciousness that you can create deep ever lasting changes.
Are you ready to call back your lost parts, create new beliefs, rebuild your beautiful stone? Want to become stronger, braver, self-aware, healthier, and kinder. If you’re fully ready to take control of your life; willing to take the necessary steps and commitment to changing your life; let us work together so you can become the person we are destined to be.
