Shamanic Wisdom: Cultural Rituals to Process Grief

Shamanic Wisdom: Cultural Rituals to Process Grief Jan Engels-Smith

Shamanism and energy medicine are dynamic alternative approaches for wellness. They employ techniques that encompass the mind, body, and spirit — your whole being. They view a person as an energy system or a soul that needs maintenance for optimum health and well-being.

Our energetic system was designed by the cosmos to operate perfectly and to be capable of constant regeneration. But in the context of three-dimensional reality and the exposure to toxic energies (not only in our environment but because of our thoughts), we often suffer from the misplacement or distortion of our energy fields in ways that cause us to suffer illness, depression, pain, and a host of other maladies. These negative forces require significant attention for us to achieve a restoration of our perfect selves.

Shamanism offers many modalities for healing, such as extraction, which is a common method used to eradicate lower frequencies. However, in this article, I am going to touch on methods of grief ceremonies used in dealing with energies that extraction might not be able to expel.
