NOTICE: Effective September 1, 2020, I am no longer offering Shamanic healing services. I am still offering Tarot Readings, and Reiki classes will start again in October.
Roy Howard Hamilton is a Modern Day Shaman, with a focus on soul healing. His specialty includes healing from traumas and abuse, ancestral healing, removing blocked energy, and helping his clients live full, authentic lives. A shamanic session normally last about 60 minutes.
What is a Shaman?
The term Shaman can mean different things to different people. Generally a shaman is one who interacts with the spirit world on behalf of another for healing. There are reports of Shaman healers in every tribe of people since the recorded history of man. Shamanism was on the decline for a long time due to religious influence, and the western attitude that it was superstitious and primitive. Thankfully the practice is becoming accepted again, and viewed by many as a sought after modality of alternative healing.
How is one healed through Shamanism?
There can be many influences that make us sick physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Some of the biggest influences are traumatic experiences or illness, stress, and abusive relationships. Two things can happen after experiencing any of these. First, the experience can leave stress residue in our body and soul, and block the natural energy flow. Second, and very often, you can actually lose part of your soul during trauma. As a Shaman, Roy can intuitively see the stress residue in the body, and help remove it. When a person loses a part of their soul, the Shaman can visit the spirit world, find it, and bring it back. Once you are reunited with your missing soul pieces, true healing can begin.
Many times negative energy or entities can attach itself to a person. This can happen during stressful periods of our lives. The stress can attach itself to the tissues and bones in the body, and especially to the spirit of the person. As a Shaman, Roy can cleanse and remove the negative energy and entities. Shamanism is also a helpful tool for curse or hex removal. (Yes, this really does happen).
What should I expect during a Shaman healing session?
Every session is different! Roy will use different techniques and tools based on the client’s needs that day. Each session will begin with a brief chat about why you need healing. Roy will hold your hands and feet a few minutes to read your energy. Part of the session may be performed with the client laying on a massage table or standing. Roy will do an energy scan of the body by moving his hands above the body, and possibly use a pendulum. Once the illness is found, different techniques may be used to release it. You can expect to be smudged (burning of white sage) for blessing and removal of negative energy. Hand drums, rattles, or bells may be used to awaken the spirit. Stones, herbs and essential oils are often used as needed. Your spirit guides will be called on to assist with the healing.
Is this a meditative, relaxing experience?
No. This is an interactive experience between Roy, you, and your spirit guides. Tribal might be a good word to describe it. This is a hands-on healing experience, but always fully clothed and respectable. This will most likely be a very emotional experience for the client.
After the healing session, we will spend some time discussing the experience. I will answer any questions you have about what you experienced, and we will discuss if any additional healing is needed. In extreme cases, multiple sessions may be needed to completely heal.
