“I saw Samantha at a time when I felt very stressed and did not even know where to begin my self-care. She started with energy clearing, then moved on to recovery of a power animal and finally worked with my ancestors to heal a past life issue.
I felt lighter by the time I left and within the first few days after the healing I felt more creative and productive, having regained a sense of agency and direction I had been missing for a very long time. I wholeheartedly recommend her shamanic work.” MV Victoria
I am a Shamanic and Ancestral Healer based in West Hampstead, Hampstead, Camden and North West London. Shamanic and Ancestral healing is an ancient system of healing that offers deep transformation, joy and harmony whilst reconnecting us to the true essence of ourselves.
What is Shamanism?
Shamanism is an ancient spiritual practise which has existed for at least 30,000 years and is practised by indigenous people all over the world. According to the Tungus speaking people of Siberia, a Shaman is a spiritual healer . A shamanic healer changes their state of consciousness to receive guidance from their ‘all knowing’ spirit allies to practise healing and act as a seer/wisdom keeper for the community.
How Can Shamanic Healing and Ancestral Healing help?
Have you ever felt that you have lost a part of your self and after this your chronic illness (eg. Anxiety, Depression, Addictions or Low Self Confidence) started?
Are you having a run of mis-fortune and/or chronic illness?
Have you noticed un-healthy emotional patterns, that you are having difficulty letting go of ?
Have you been trying to achieve something and it feels as if you are being blocked in some way? e.g. becoming pregnant, finding a new home etc
Or maybe you feel something is just not right?
Shamanic healing, works with song and sacred ceremony to clear un-healthy energy and/ or spiritual blocks, restore lost power or any lost soul essences (soul parts) whilst creating deep transformation in your life.
If you are aware you have unhealthy emotional patterns, they maybe due to an ancestral pattern or problem. Ancestral healing honours the ancestors by allowing them the gift of healing and becoming more whole. So these patterns no longer affect you and your ancestors.
There are four main paths of shamanic healing that can be done, these are commonly known as ‘Removal of Spiritual and/or Energy blocks’, ‘Soul Retrieval’, Ancestral Healing’ and ‘Retrieval of Power’. In one healing session, under the guidance of my spirit allies, we may work with one or several of these powerful and effective healing ceremonies.
Spiritual and/or Energy Blocks
With the guidance from the my spirit allies I locate and remove any misplaced energy, negative thought forms, un-healthy souls in the body to restore harmony .
If you experience a shock or trauma you may lose a part of your life force or ‘soul essence’. You may feel ‘as if you are not all there’, chronically depressed, have difficulty recovering from a loss or have gaps in your memory. This may lead to addictions or other chronic illness. I do a shamanic journey for you and with the help of my spirit allies, restore your soul essence bringing with it all it’s related gifts and talents. Usually clients feel empowered, balanced and more present.
Ancestral Healing and Past Life Healing
You may find that you have specific un-healthy emotional patterns and you don’t know the reason for them. Or there are specific problems in your life and you can’t trace the cause. This maybe because members of your family or ancestors have suffered a trauma or died under unusual circumstances such as suicide, war or accidents etc. (You may or may not be aware of this family history) These shocks or un-expected losses can leave a gap in your family or ancestral field. This can lead to wounds that create painful un-healthy patterns which are repeated by later generations. These patterns are a call from the ancestors to heal these traumas from earlier generations.
I journey to the ancestors to identify the cause of these wounds/ traumas or problems and under the guidance of my own helping ancestors and spirit allies facilitate the healing of your ancestors. In this healing freeing you from these patterns and problems. Ancestral healing is also a process of honouring the ancestors by giving them the opportunity to receive this healing.
Retrieval of Lost Power
I perform a shamanic journey for you to retrieve energy or power which can be in the form of a power animal to help you in your life. They bring gifts of certain qualities which are enhanced in you.
When there are problems and issues in life where you are not sure where to turn or what to do, the spirit allies and helping ancestors can offer insightful guidance. During a Shamanic Divination I work with ceremony to ask my spirit allies and my helping ancestors for guidance on your behalf.
Blessing ceremonies can be held to request the support of your spirit allies and helping ancestors at the beginning of a new job or major change in your life such as a marriage or celebration of a new baby. Each ceremony is very special and its form changes as it is guided by the spirit allies.
Are you on a spiritual or personal development journey?
Not sure where to go from here?
Or maybe you are going through a challenging time or encountering several blocks and need some help resolving it?
The shamanic coaching/ counselling sessions, teaches you how to practise the powerful shamanic meditation ‘core shamanic journey’. This helps you retrieve your personal power whilst enabling you to connect with your ‘all knowing’, compassionate spirit teachers and allies so you can ask for guidance on the challenging issues in your life. As part of this process you will also learn a (new) Ancestral Meditation, which will help you connect with your helping ancestors so they too can support you.
Sometimes you are aware there are blocks in your life and you just need some clarity on what they are and how to resolve them. Shamanic coaching will support you with journeying to your spirit allies and helping ancestors to receive wisdom.
Shamanic coaching and counselling works with ceremony and your spirit allies/ helping ancestors to identify the key issues affecting your life and helps you resolve these issues. In some cases this may involve a shamanic healing if the spirit allies feel it is needed.
I’ve practised Shamanic journeying for several years, introducing me to my spirit teachers and allies. It has provided me with deep healing and provided guidance on difficult issues that I faced in my life. The Ancestral meditation has really helped me to connect with my helping ancestors, my history, supported and guided me on various challenges that have come forward.
How Can Shamanic Coaching/ Counselling Help?
If you are new to Shamanic Journeying, in the first session I explain the history, form of the shamanic journey and journey to meet a spirit ally. Subsequent sessions involve journeys to meet your spirit teacher and allies and ask them for guidance on challenging issues in your life.
You will also learn how to do an ancestral meditation, where you meet your helping ancestor ally. Also the best ceremonies to continue that relationship so they can support you in your life.
If you are experienced at journeying, we will review the challenging issues you are facing and request guidance from your spirit allies and helping ancestors so your life flows.
After each journey or meditation we reflect on the wisdom you have received and translate it into practical steps so you move forward in your life with more connection, joy and a deeper understanding of your purpose.
The Shamanic counselling sessions were deceptively simple, by which I mean what you ‘do’ is very well explained and easy to implement. You find yourself being supported by Samantha as you travel to other places and expose and explore areas and issues that have been hovering in your mind for a long time.
It reveals relationships with guides and teachers and you get the chance to reflect, review and get feedback and clarifying questions from Samantha to get the most from the session. At the end you are able to continue with the process for yourself with clear guidance on how to progress further with what you have learnt.’
