Shamanism is a path of service to the planet, her people, and the community. Shamans have been the original holistic healers in traditions around the world and are known for their ability to heal themselves.
A Shaman is a person who dedicates their lives answering their spiritual calling of service. They have a spiritual focus that is inclusive of mind, body, emotions, and soul.
Connecting with our spirit and the spirit in all things awakens meaning to life and helps us understand more levels of us and all. Today people are practicing Shamanism and are helpful in the community to do their part to support healing and spiritual awareness and growth in these times.
The primary purpose to pursue Shamanism is to learn and heal through a direct connection to our spirit, soul, and spiritual guidance. To do this, we break out of ego limitation to the subtle realms of spirit to awaken higher wisdom and knowledge. Nature, animals, seasonal and life cycles, and all of life on earth and beyond are honored in Shamanic practice.
The Shamanic Journey is a way to accomplish our spiritual awareness and connections and is a discipline to experience and explore. Learning with an experienced teacher allows you to safely travel, learn, discern, heal, and discover the truth of us on many levels. This practice is also a way to determine our path of service and purpose.
Some traditions use drums and rattles and gongs to move into the subtle Shamanic realms. Some others will use breathwork and move into a deep connection. Each tradition offers unique perspectives. Natural products like sage, stones, and feathers are used by some practitioners for cleansing and healing.
There is no need to use drugs for a natural Shamanic experience as when we achieve an authentic spiritual connection; we awaken bliss, happiness, fantastic visions, and higher truth and love.
A natural Shamanic practice is used with an open mind and loving heart focused on being of service to all. Explored with pure intent, we create a sacred space to connect, heal, learn and grow. Shamanism is a precious natural way to awaken, heal and be.
Janet StraightArrow discovered her Shamanic calling in 1992, at the age of forty, as a single mom and top Realtor who had been studying spirituality and healing for twenty-years and living it. She began teaching immediately from memory and continuously awakening higher wisdom and sacred knowledge. She found she carried many lineages from around the world and pursued studies to bring Ancient wisdom together for our modern world today.
She has studied with Native American, Tibetan, Celtic, Toltec, African, Huichol, and Siberian Shamans and Shamanic practitioners Michael Harner, Sandra Ingerman, and others at the foundation for Shamanic Studies, and renowned spiritual healing masters from Yoga, Sufism, Zen, Buddhism, and other traditions around the world and found the unity and unique perspectives and gifts that fill in the missing pieces to make us whole again.
StraightArrow’s work and mission Be The Medicine is the “how” to live healing and our true self in service to all simply, easily, and directly with joy. More on Shamanism and Soul Shamanism on this website. See her upcoming pieces of training and a summer Vision Quest retreat on the calendar page. Private sessions weekly.
This work empowers each person to walk their walk and increase their energy and awareness. Holistic practitioners will benefit and so will their clients and students. People from all walks of life will feel more connected to self, others, life, nature, and the earth.
