Ever wondered what it means to be a modern-day shaman or how you can use shamanic practices to find balance in your life? Join me as I dive into this fascinating topic with Amanda Gates on her award-winning Home Energy Design podcast available through  iTunes or Stitcher.


Most of us experience trauma or disappointment in our lives. If we don’t have the awareness or tools to deal with these feelings, we might reach for things like alcohol, food, shopping, or sex to try and manage our pain. Shamanic healing practices provide an alternative approach to guide you back to your spiritual center and support you in expressing your most authentic self.

What is a Shaman?

There’s more than one shamanic path. Traditionally, there have been a variety of roles and modalities. There may be the ceremonial shaman, the tribal shaman, who is the chief or leader, there may be the medicinal shaman who uses plants or different medicines or tinctures for healing, and then also there is the shamanic healer and they may be using different energy clearing techniques.

In the modern world, we can use shamanic techniques to find balance in our hectic lives by connecting with nature, being in touch with the elements and the seasons, and coming back into the harmony of living with all things.

What is Shamangelic Healing?

Shamangelic healing incorporates a blend of modalities, beliefs, and ceremonial wisdom teachings based on different diagnostic systems. It expands awareness to identify where you may be out of balance, and provides tools and support to help you shift embedded patterns as you navigate new territory.

Reconnecting to the rhythm of natural cycles beyond our cell phones, computers, and other distractions is a central focus of the variety of sessions I have at the Shamangelic Healing Center. We discuss a few on the show such as:

  • A Shamangelic Breathwork session can include guided visualization, deep breathing techniques, vibrational sound, soulful music, energy healing, Shamanic tools, crystal therapy and light body expansion. Slowing our breathing assists in meditative relaxation, a proven way to reduce stress and open awareness to the world around us.
  • Shamangelic Healing Journey is my two-hour signature session that typically starts by identifying and exploring issues, challenges, and frustrations. I get to the core of the issue. Through a process of discovery, counsel, and perspective shifting, new insights can emerge. The next phase of the experience takes place in the healing room, where the real magic happens. Each tailored session is unique, but can include guided visualization, crystals, sound healing tools, and hands-on bodywork. The healing journey facilitates powerful energetic, emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual shifts.
  • Shamangelic Animal Spirit Journey teaches you how to recognize the messages that animals convey to each other and to us. Shamanic Wisdom teachers and guides come in many forms. Animal Spirits move in and around us every day, often unnoticed. For example, the hummingbird reminds us to go after the joy and nectar in life. Butterflies show us that liberation comes from transformation.

Shamanic healing can weave naturally into your current spiritual belief system, while providing additional support and resources.

 If you’re seeing this and hearing this, there’s something here for you.

Trust the synchronicity.
