Eric Barr. Shamanic healing.
In understanding Shamanic healing, it’s good to start by understanding that anything can change. We know this because of how issues are created and how they are healed. Without getting into a long list of diagnoses, the simple rule is that if an issue is showing up in your physical life and you want it to be different, it can change by healing how it was created. Physical pain, disease, anxiety, depression, relationship cycles, trauma, and behavioural issues are a short list of what can be healed. I also provide other services that are classified as performance enhancing, afterlife preparation, space clearings, and recovery care.
My journey towards becoming a Shaman began during a conversation about quantum physics with a former high school teacher who then introduced me to professional shamanic training with Pete Bernard of The 8th Fire.
I walked into Pete’s class thinking I didn’t have any natural abilities within this realm but soon began to understand that the culmination of my life skills and experiences had been leading me to this point in time. As a carpenter and architectural technologist, I had been training my mind to visualize and organize conceptual ideas and construct them into material objects while
diligently and purposefully working with my hands.
I find myself fortunate to have found this practice as it speaks to my unwavering desire to want to solve problems and find solutions. To serve in a meaningful way to my community and beyond is humbling and rewarding. I take pride and feel honoured to provide this service, and work hard to ensure that you are safe, supported, and in control while facilitating and guiding you on your healing journey within a professional atmosphere.
Your Shamanic session starts with a short discussion about what your issue is and how you experience it, followed by what you wish to experience instead. Using that information, as well as intuited guidance, we will then move into the healing portion of the session. This may involve using energy medicine to repair any damage or remove any unwanted conditions that have formed. Or it could involve journeying a client to the inner realms of his or her psyche to remove old patterns and update conditions.
During a session you may experience physical sensations such as hot and cold, tingling, or small body movements while energy is transferring; mental visions and spiritual awareness as reconnections are made to internal realms; or the release of emotions as unresolved traumas are healed.
Ultimately you should expect to see yourself moving in the direction of your healed outcome. Of course, there is no guarantee the outcome of a session as every issue and client is individual and can be complex, but a very large percentage of clients experience a significant change in their issue with next to no ill side effects.
Shamanism is not a religion. Although some ideas and understandings related to healing overlap, shamanism in not an organization or religious body. Shamanic practitioners are not counsellors, psychologists, or medical doctors. I also do not give personal advice or medical recommendations.
