What Is a Shamanic Initiation?

Have you witnessed or experienced the power of shamanic healing?

Do you have a sense of the healing forces moving within you… and all around you?

Shamanic principles and practices are about becoming initiates of energy…

… learning to clear out energy blocks and beliefs that cause disease, and using the healing energy of your consciousness (and from other beings) to shapeshift a new reality.

For some people, this initiation can be extremely powerful... a “kundalini-like” experience that unleashes blocked life-force energy, causing the body to twitch or perspire, or producing high-pitched ringing in the ears, visions, and even crying.

Such experiences can produce a feeling of profound union with the Divine — or what world-renowned shamanism teacher and Peruvian healer don Oscar Miro-Quesada calls “God Intoxication.”

In this 3-minute video, don Oscar shares some of the physical symptoms and spiritual breakthroughs of true shamanic initiations…

 

 

Don’t miss these highlights that don Oscar covers in this energizing mini-workshop:

(0:12) — Symptoms of spontaneous shamanic awakenings

(0:45) — ”God Intoxification” as expressions of the Divine

(1:16) — Purge lower vibrations of energy or hoocha

(2:01) — Dissolve disease, disharmony, and trauma

(2:28) — The Shamanic path… a healing tradition and a spiritual practice

For other practitioners, shamanic initiations can be more subtle, yet the shifts in the body and mind can be just as life-changing.

And you don’t need to have an earthshaking event, or “see” a vision to be initiated into this powerful path. The shamanic path is for everyone… it is a sacred way of relating to the world as much as it is a potent healing tradition.

Have you or someone you know experienced the healing power of shamanic practices and principles? We’d love to hear from you!


Receive the beautiful blessings of now, let go of what no longer serves you through a shamanic clearing, and step into the future your soul longs for — during don Oscar's FREE video event,
Shamanic Clearing & Blessing for the New Year.
