Shamans help Victims of Violence

october-violence

Before reading this blog, know that what I write here is from my experience, what I know of Shamanism, and by no means do I recommend someone use my experiences written here to practice healing someone who has suffered a trauma.  My experience  and words are to only suggest the practice a  shaman might use to help a victim.

Every family, including my own has experienced trauma.  With every blog I write,  I share from my own experiences this is not always easy.  However, sharing true experiences allows the reader a look at reality through the victims’ eyes.  Every clan, community, village, nation have been victims of violence at some point in the past.  Civil Wars, racial wars, family disputes, neighborly, business disputes, and sibling rivalry.  From wars with weapons, to wars of words, we too have inflicted violence this is part of the human experience.  Absorbed by all, the trauma affects spouses, and children.  Spreading to anyone that it touches, every person feels on edge.

Letting go of Trauma Safely

 

My father was an abusive alcoholic, who carried his trauma over to our family inflicting violence and terror on all of the family, from spouse, to siblings, parents, neighbors, and even community.  It left its victims with years of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  Years, trying to manage the trauma, counseling, and life were a roller coaster of good and bad.  After shamanic counsel, recovery is progressing, and healing the traumas one at a time.

The shaman helps a person to heal in many ways.  The first step is finding a reputable shaman who can help.  Shamans might register with a group or teacher, they may claim a linage, they may have certification, or they just might be in a group.  If a shaman has references, and a following it is a good beginning.   Shamans do not need to take drugs to find answers, nor do their clients.   Shamans do not learn how to practice shamanism overnight.  For more information on finding a shaman, please read about shamanism.  It is important for a person seeking the help of a shaman to research the shamanic practitioners before they commit to their services.

 

Emotionally, different events can have unpredictable effects on a victim depending on the person’s age, the situation, and more.  The shaman will first do an assessment and talk with the client about shamanic healing, the procedure of journeying, what results might be obtained.  Depending on the journeys’ results, the shaman will proceed with healing.

 

Healing can include, “Soul Retrieval”, “Extraction”, “Energy Healing”, and other similar shamanic practices.  A fragmented soul can take longer to heal, because mending it is like tying torn netting together.    A journey will reveal what happened, and what the shaman can do to start the healing process.

 

The shaman may work by starting with the inner child, this child feels scared, unsafe, and like at any time the trauma will happen again.  Making an inner safe place, and providing a totem or alley for the inner child.  C.G. Jung is often quoted on the benefits of healing trauma from working with the inner child, the place where first impressions are made in regards to safety, trust, love, and connection.

 

Soul Retrieval

 

Reclaiming the loss fragments and energies that were stolen or given away.

Experienced practitioners are powerful.  It is much like returning the parts of you lost to overwhelming pain and grief.  This work is best done with a good practitioner.  Fragments will appear differently depending on the individual.  It is important to have a good guide with you to hunt down these things and bring them back.  In meeting with the spirit of the abusers (as is done within the medicine I learnt) it is often helpful to see their inner child and negotiate with them if they have something of yours.

 

Spiritual Parasites

A Spiritual Parasite can infect the victim through transference during the victimization from a host (perpetrator) of abuse.  Whether this is sexual, physical, or the complex of emotional/mental/verbal abuse.  A spawn of this Parasite passes from the host to the victim.  It latches into the solar plexus, and can be felt by the victim as if one had received a blow, akin to that of having one’s breath knocked out of them.  After hooking itself into the center of one’s Power base, the Parasite draws upon the victim’s life force, feeding on the new host’s vitality.  The victim, meanwhile, becomes weaker and more debilitated as time goes on, having lost vast amounts of energy to the Spiritual Parasite.  From a Shamanic perspective, this may answer why a person who has been abused may tend to become an abuser himself or herself.

 

The Shamanic method of removal is ‘extraction is utilized to remove any number of dysfunctional energies of spiritual origin.  The Shaman prepares the infected site and suctions through a tube placed upon the skin of the patient.  The Shaman asks for help from allies, and then removes the intrusion.   Extractions, soul retrieval, and other shamanic healing should only be performed by a qualified shaman.

This describes how a shaman may help a victim who has suffered from the trauma of some disaster.  Of course, there is a lot more involved than what I have described above.  In my last blog, on Violence there are several resources for assistance.  Victims are advised to start by asking someone who they feel safe with for advice.  If you are in an abusive situation.  Your Doctor is a great resource.  My experience and words are only suggestions; a shaman might use any or more spiritual practices to help a victim.
