My Transformative Journey into the Spiritual Power of Shamanism

The early days

I’m James, a shamanic practitioner with a rich spiritual heritage. Although I was too young to witness my grandmother and uncle’s practices, I heard many stories of their spiritual gifts and powerful connections to the spirit world. I have always felt a strong connection to shamanism and the spiritual world, and more powerfully a calling to help others on their journey.

Growing up, I was surrounded by the stories of my grandmother and uncle’s spiritual practices. I would listen in wonder as family members recounted tales of their awe-inspiring connections to the spirit world and the guidance and wisdom they received from the spirits.

My grandmother was known to have a very powerful and special gift, with people travelling far and wide to visit her, but often not knowing they were coming to see her specifically, just knowing they would meet a woman on a road and would exchange a gift. It was stories like this that made me curious about the ways of the spirit world. Despite this exposure, I didn’t fully embrace my calling until later in life.

My own healing path

As a child, I was a victim of abuse from an older boy at school, and the trauma from that experience stayed with me for many years. It was not until I discovered shamanism that I was able to begin to heal from my past and turn my pain into a source of strength and power.

After meeting my wife and having my interest in the spirit world rekindled, I felt drawn to the teachings of shamanism and the ancient spiritual traditions it held. I began studying shamanic practices and attending workshops and soaking up as much knowledge as I could.

Through my journey, I was able to come to terms with my abuse and find a sense of peace and understanding. By utilizing the teachings and practices of shamanism, I was able to turn my pain into a gift, using my experiences to help others on their own journey of healing and transformation.

Becoming a modern-day shaman

As I deepened my knowledge and experience of shamanism, I began to develop my own unique style. I was privileged to study the Peruvian Medicine Wheel with my teacher Skie in the UK, and this experience greatly influenced my practice.

In addition, I am constantly studying, and reading the books of Alberto Villoldo or Sandra Ingerman among others. Learning about different forms of shamanism from all over the world, constantly seeking to expand my understanding of this ancient spiritual tradition.

I draw upon the teachings of my family’s spiritual traditions, as well as my own personal experiences, to create a powerful and transformative spiritual practice.

Through my ongoing education and commitment to my craft, I am able to bring the best of the shamanic tradition to my clients and help them on their own journeys of healing and transformation.

There are many who would say I am a modern-day shaman, but I prefer to think of myself a shamanic practitioner. Shamans are born into their craft, they are chosen by their village to walk the path of shamanic practice and I honour that, but it is not my path.

I am seeking knowledge to help others, that is my passion and through shamanic practises I have transformed more than any other form of western medicine or psychotherapy has been able to help me. This gift I have been given is one I wish to share with the world and help others to do the same.

What is the role of a modern-day shaman?

My shamanic practice is centred around helping others connect with their own inner wisdom and the wisdom of the spirit world. Through my work, I help individuals find clarity and direction, heal from emotional pain, and access their own inner power.

One of the key aspects of my practice is my ability to connect with the spirit world and bring forth messages and guidance for my clients. I use drumming, chanting, and other shamanic practices to journey into the spirit world and connect with the spirits.

Illumination ceremonies

The most transformational part of my shamanic practice is my use of illumination ceremonies to help individuals shed their past trauma or visit past lives. Through these ceremonies, I guide individuals on a journey of self-discovery, helping them to shed the burdens of their past and access a deeper level of healing and transformation.

During the ceremony, I use various shamanic techniques such as drumming, chanting, and visualization to create a safe and transformative environment. By exploring past lives and addressing past traumas, individuals are able to gain a new perspective on their experiences and find a deeper sense of peace and understanding.

This work has the power to bring about profound transformation, helping individuals to move forward on their spiritual journey with a newfound sense of clarity and purpose.

Groups and retreats

In addition to one-on-one sessions, I also lead group workshops and retreats. These events provide an opportunity for individuals to come together and deepen their connection to the spirit world and their own inner wisdom.

For me, shamanism is a lifelong journey of growth and transformation. I am dedicated to sharing my knowledge and helping others on their spiritual paths. Through my work, I am making a positive impact in the world and helping others to find their own path to healing and enlightenment.

As a shamanic practitioner, I work closely with the energies of the earth, tapping into the power of the winds, water, fire, and earth to bring healing and balance to my clients.

My wife and I are the perfect balance

My wife, on the other hand, works with celestial angelic energies, connecting with the spiritual realm to bring a higher level of healing and guidance to those she works with.

Our unique gifts and abilities work in harmony to help individuals access their own inner wisdom and find clarity, peace, and direction in their lives.
