Ask any group of people what the definition is of shamanism and you may get many different answers. It is agreed that shamanism has been part of our world since prehistoric times and yet there is some conflict and controversy as to what exactly it means to be a shaman. Part of the conflict has to do with the fact that shamanism is a spiritual practice that has such a long history and it has ties to many different and diverse cultural groups. But it is often agreed upon that a shaman is a person who is a spiritual healer and one who has a strong connection to the sacred world. The shaman connects to spirit guides, and also to animal guides, through sacred rituals that involve, and yet are not limited to, trance-like meditation, lucid dreaming, divination, and out of body experiences.
In this way they help to restore spiritual, mental and physical balance to a particular individual or to the community that they are connected with. The word shaman is said to have come from the Tungus language of Siberia and referred to holy people in this region who worked as healers and seekers. It is not a gender-based word and can be applied in the same way to both men and women.
A shaman gains insight into what needs healing and restoring in an individual or community by working with the spirits of animals, trees, the land and from the spirits of past ancestors. All of these carry a wealth of information that the shaman can connect with and use in their work. The connection is made by the shaman to the spirits through a shift of consciousness that involves entering a trance-like state through meditation that often involves the use of rattles, drumming and/or chanting.

One Spirit 1 & 2
One Spirit is a very powerful healing energy. It uses your heart, unconditional love and symbols. One Spirit takes you on a sacred journey inside yourself so that you can delve deeper beneath the surface and see your true self in all its majesty. Within all of us there are Animal Totems who protect our chakras. There are animals with their own special abilities that guard each of our chakras. Therefore, each Chakra has its own Animal Guardian Spirit.
This healing modality is very similar to Reiki n that it teaches you how to heal self and others, how to send energy distantly and remotely and works to heal all levels, mind, body and spirit. In addition, One Spirit teaches you important lessons about how to love and forgive yourself unconditionally and without bias or judgment. One Spirit connects you to your animal guardians, animal totems and spirit guides. It works with animals and nature. You will learn how to meet your animal guides and how to get to know them, how to help heal each other and how to work together for specific goals including healing self, others, animals and Mother Earth. We are all connected.
We all have one mind, body, heart and Spirit. One Spirit is a powerful Energy System and is especially helpful to those interested in Animal Healing, Shamanism, Totem Animals or Native American Tribal Culture.
