Reiki and shamanism

glyohcardbackAs a shamanic healer, I insist on working with a compassionate Spirit to guide me whenever I am doing any kind of healing work. This is true for all my journey work, of course, but it is also true for horse massage, hands on energy healing, and Reiki. And so you may be asking, if I am doing Reiki, and I am not connected to a known compassionate Spirit teacher or guide, is this ok? Of course it is! Reiki by definition is a power of love, and you are doing it with one sole purpose, to help where help is needed. Fabulous! And I will go out on a limb and postulate that most people have a compassionate Spirit supporting their work, even though they may not know who that Spirit is. This fall I will be offering a shamanic training series specifically for energy healers and body workers. The idea will be to help people become clearly connected to their teachers, and then to use that connection to enhance their healing work, and to support healing on a very deep level. It is pretty exciting, and I hope you can join the classes.

Ancestor Spirit visits Mary

Mary recently shared this journey with me. She wasn't expecting this. She was just doing a journey, when she got a major visitation! Has this been happening to you too? The Ancestors are returning and we are all be blessed! Dear Carla,

I told you I would write about my journey from last night, I now have two journeys.

I went to my circle and started with gratitude and thanking all that assisted in the healing journey you did with Krissy. I then asked for wisdom, guidance and love. In came a semi-circle of men who looked very ancient, each was dressed differently but their faces seemed the same but they were not clear.  I asked where they were from and they said Council of Elders.  I heard Mongolia and wondered, is that near Siberia and had a feeling it was. They said they walked before us and were here to guide us.  They then went thru much advice for me in my daily life. It was very simple and practical.  This is the first time I met with them.

Tonight I was compelled to journey again.  I gathered my power animals around me and again went into gratitude for all the teachers, angels, guides, masters, etc who guide me and love me and care for me moment to moment.

I then asked for wisdom and guidance.  Wow, a big power came who was dressed in very rich, ancient clothing.  He had a ornate band of fabric around his forehead and on his head, can't really describe it.  He seemed to have the same ethnic look as the night before and there were other beings around him dressed more modestly.  He spoke to me and said they walked before us and were here to guide us as we have requested and it has been written. He then started to rise up and I was trying to follow him and suddenly he said, "I pour the blood of the universe into you, drink it and fill your body with it, it is the Holy Blood, feel your body get heavy as it fills you and fills every cell.  I did feel very heavy indeed.  I then saw what looked like small worms moving around inside me and he said, yes, they are like worms, they are eating all that needs to go.  I then felt lighter. He started to come back down and I noticed a ring of fire around the circle and then more rings continued from that, they were moving in opposite directions to each other.  He told me to follow him and the fire parted and we walked into a path between circles of fire.  It reminded me of the spiral.  As we got closer to the center I could see it looking like a black hole but with light. He felt my fear of falling in and said, no we won't fall in.  Then we walked away from it.

He had me stand over a flame and I felt as if I was open with no body and the flame came up to my heart.  He told me to let the flame light my heart.  He said it's not a burning flame, it's a soul flame. It really felt good. He gave me lessons on humanity and I saw a vision which reminded me of hell with throngs of people crushing each other trying to go up and get out.  He said that is what humanity has become, we have forgotten, we only want to care for ourselves and crush everyone else on the way.

He said they are here to guide us. He then put a purple robe with hood on me, had me go down to ground with head on ground.  It felt like he was brushing my head with feathers, something light, then down my back. I then went into something very deep and started to see different women's faces keep changing. I then came conscious again and he said again he was filling me with the universal blood and I felt heavy. He said humanity must learn to live in love of each other, to open our hearts. He told me to stand in the soul flame and ignite my heart.

WOW, it was so good, it felt wonderful.  The visual was my heart was the point of the triangle and there was no body attached below, it was wide open to the flame. He said the end is the beginning and the beginning is the end. I'm not sure what he meant.

WOW, that was pretty intense.

Hugs, Mary

Spirals: energetic healing's unified field theory

Spirals are ancient images and I believe they are the image of creation. That power, that motion is the force that brings us life itself, and all our renewal. It is the earth's magnetic field. It is the shape of DNA. It is the pattern of organic growth. It is the unfolding of the universe from a birth star. So many healers use them in vortexes and many other forms; these spirals are universal, and they must come from the same concept and source. Spiral work is the closest thing we have to a unified field theory in energetic/spiritual healing. Many times when I do a basic shamanic healing for a client the spirits use spirals in simple, but distinct and consistent ways. There are certain patterns and colors the spirits use, such as tornado vortexes that look like snow, and spiraling streams of blue light. I have not shared these images with my students as teachings. The only people who know what I am doing are my clients who have experienced the work. (I speak everything out loud so people know what is happening in non ordinary reality while I work.) I am currently teaching a level 2 class in shamanic healing, and in the first session we were asking the spirits to show each person a simple healing so that they would have some initial ideas about the work that is to come. One student was shown the same spiral techniques the spirits use in my sessions - right down to the colors. We shamanic healers are blessed to be the conduits of the spirits wisdom and power. I love that we have cohesive experiences, without any prompting. We just sit in the same circle, ordinary and non ordinary.

I am hoping to see a website built to showcase all our experiences with spirals in shamanic healing. I won't be creating it, but I think I know who will :-) More to come....

Earth Spirits Heal Pellie

Earth Spirits Heal Pellie

LF was concerned about her 5 year old English Mastiff, recently diagnosed with a neurological disorder of his spine, making him wobbly on his back end and causing his legs to fall out from under him.

Carla’s healing journey:

“We did a lot of healing work! The spirits put him in a muddy bog and the spirit of the earth extracted the illness from him. A beautiful cloud spirit cried on him, and her healing tears flowed through his body. The spirit of a bushy willow plant merged with him and will be a power spirit for him. The roots will cleanse the illness from him, and the leaves will gather the healing power of the sun. It was INCREDIBLE to watch these loving spirits fill him with their power.”

The spirits also gave Carla detailed directions for diet and herbs to be given to Pellie.

LF responds: “Thank you, it is a wonderful reading. We will be doing all that you recommend……Wanted you to know that he was 100% himself on Sunday and we were so glad. He even played with his toys……I just listened to the tape and let me tell you, it was a beautiful and deeply moving experience. I understand what to do and how committed you are to my Pellie and all life.”
