Distance Core Shamanism (for People and Animals)


Distance Core Shamanic Practices

“Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to humankind.”
-- Colleen Deatsman, The Hollow Bone: A Field Guide to Shamanism

“Core shamanism consists of the universal or near-universal principles and practices of shamanism not bound to any specific cultural group or perspective.”
-- Anthropologist Michael Harner, Founder of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies

Over tens of thousands of years (many anthropologists have dated the practice back over 100,000 years), our ancient ancestors developed a spiritual-based system for personal empowerment, problem-solving, and spiritual healing. This system is now referred to as “Shamanism” or, currently “Shamanic Practices.”

Shamanic practices have been used in every culture across the world. It is a form of spirituality that is based upon living in balance (it’s all energy) with all other forms of life on this planet -- the people, the plants, the animals, and the Earth itself.

Shamanic practices have survived for centuries simply because they have proven to be successful in enabling people to achieve physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy balance -- to not only continue to exist in an often harsh environment, but to THRIVE within that environment.

Shamanic practitioners always have been -- and still are -- the “healers” within their tribes and communities. They were the “seers” and the “sages” whom the people turned to for balance and harmony in relationships, for healing remedies, and for knowledge about critical decisions that needed to be made on a daily basis (such as, “where shall we hunt to find food?” and “where shall we set up our summer camps?”).

Traditionally, the health of individuals and the community as a whole was the responsibility of the shamans. If the shamans did not do their job well, the people starved or suffered needlessly. Shamanic practices have survived the ages (and the comings-and-goings of specific civilizations, nation-groups, and countries) because the practices are experiential, based upon “divine” revelation, and can adapt and respond to the unique needs of the situation at hand.

Although Shamanism is not a religion, it is the “ancestor” to all forms of human religion. Core shamanism (the basic shamanic practices, as practiced around the world) embodies the most wide-spread and time-tested practical system of spirituality and mind-body-soul healing known to humankind. It encompasses a timeless wisdom of indigenous cultures shared around the planet, and passed down through thousands of years -- to us.

The word “Shaman” (pronounced shah-maan) comes from the language of the Evenki people, a Tungusic tribe in Siberia, and it means “one who sees in the dark.” It is a word that was adapted widely by anthropologists to refer to people who enter an altered state of consciousness (similar to meditation or deep prayer) at will; people who “journey” into non-ordinary reality in order to acquire knowledge and power (in the form of energy) to help others. Shamanic “seeing” is a whole-body sensing and knowing, whereby the Shaman receives visual images, insights, flashes, and direct knowledge from this “non-ordinary” reality.

Shamans, basically, develop the ability to enter a deep state of consciousness (that is, outside of what is experienced in the regular “waking” state of time and space) with discipline and purpose in order to directly seek spiritual/divine guidance, gain insight or energetic power, and/or to determine the core of physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual imbalances.

This non-ordinary reality that Shamanic Practitioners learn to access exists just beyond our everyday perceptions. [Keeping in mind the scientific demonstration that the Universe is pure movement, with no distinction between light (patterns of energy) and matter (patterns of energy) and is pure vibration loaded with the potential to manifest into an infinite array of patterns -- the Quantum Inseparability Principle -- would attest that what we call “non-ordinary” reality is simply our reality accessed by using all of our innate senses. As Einstein pointed out, energy is equal to matter (E=MC2) -- so “solid” objects that you can see, feel and touch, are matter AND energy, which you cannot see, feel, or touch.]

Many people say that they only believe what they can touch or see; yet, science has proven that 99.99999+ percent of an atom is open space! That is, everything we touch or see is verifiably…nothing! Matter exists as both a “wave” and a “particle” -- it can both exist and be non-existent (“wink” in and out of existence). So what is perceived as “real” is actually a disturbance in space -- a measureable “wrinkle” in the energy of space. It only has a “perceived” solidness. And it is only this perceived solidness that differentiates matter from space (which is unseen by our basic five senses). The study of quantum mechanics has demonstrated that the vast space between the particles is filled with energy -- much more so than what is produced to create a particle. That is, the space between the particles of the atom is filled with POWER (or potential). It has more power than the particles it produces because it’s potential to produce is always greater than what is actually produced.

All that to say -- it’s all energy. And what is “unseen” by our basic senses is just as real and just as powerful (if not more powerful) than what is seen by our basic senses. What is “unseen” is “seen” by the Shamanic Practitioner when in a deep state of consciousness referred to as “non-ordinary” reality.

Everyone can, with training and intent, access this non-ordinary reality. (The Australian aborigines call the non-ordinary reality the “Dreamtime.” It is referred by as the “Other World” in Celtic traditions, or as the “Spirit Worlds” by Native Americans and other indigenous peoples.) Modern quantum physics has proven that there are, in fact, many worlds, dimensions, and “realms” that overlap and interact with one another. Shamanic Practitioners merely serve as a “bridge” between the different dimensions. (Just like we know that light is made up of a broad spectrum of frequencies, some of which we can see -- and some of which we can’t -- “ordinary” reality merely has the appearance of having a solid, physical form, while “non-ordinary” reality does not.)

Shamanic Practitioners, including Kristina, see the soul of the world (the “energy” of life and consciousness) in every rock, stream, bird, animal, cloud. This belief holds that all life has a soul; a soul created from, filled with, and sustained by an intelligent Spirit-guided life-force energy – the “Spirit Way” is the way of energy – and it’s all energy!

Shamanic Practitioners believe that this intelligent Spirit-guided life-force energy is omnipotent, formless, and omnipresent. This Spirit-guided life-force energy moves within every living thing -- connecting every living thing. And this Spirit (whether it is called God, or Great Spirit, or Creator -- or any other name) is just as real and just as tangible as flesh -- even if we can’t see it with our physical eyes, taste it with our tongues, or hold it in our hands!

This all-pervasive, divine life-force energy has “assistant” energies (including angels, “power” animals, or any other compassionate helping spirit). These assistant energies interact with all of us on a daily basis -- from birth to death.

These “assistant” energies take on specific “energetic signatures” (energy forms) and appearances that Shamanic Practitioners can see, feel, hear, experience, and interact with in non-ordinary reality.

These “assistant” energies are called “helping spirits” by Shamanic Practitioners. However, they have been referred to as angels, guardian spirits, spirit teachers, spirit helpers, spirit guides, spirit allies, ascended masters, power animals, elemental spirits (including faeries, elves, leprechauns, gnomes, etc.), or Archetypes -- depending upon the culture or religious orientation of the ones “perceiving” them. Whatever name these helping spirits are given, or in whatever form they allow themselves to be perceived by humans -- they are pure energy!

Shamanic Practitioners know that all worlds (ordinary and non-ordinary reality) host an infinite number and variety of helping spirits. They believe that each person is born with at least one helping spirit that protects them and shares their “power” (energy) with them. The job of all helping spirits is to guide, protect, teach, and link people with a higher energetic vibration so they can experience enhanced energy, vitality, health, harmony, and wisdom of action.

Working with these helping spirits, Shamanic Practitioners work to affect spiritual healing and harmony in our ordinary reality -- and they do this to ensure the survival and well-being of the people they serve: their clients, their students, their family, their friends, they elders, their community, and, ultimately, all of humanity and all of the Earth.

Throughout the world, and throughout the ages, people (entire cultures) have believed in these helping spirits -- invisible to the naked eye in this reality because they vibrate at a much higher frequency and are far less physically dense (called “subtle” or “etheric” energy in quantum physics). Helping spirits are, in essence, just higher-vibrational, spiritual energy forms -- existing just outside our ordinary, everyday, five-sense perception.

Basically, Shamanic Practitioners work with compassionate helping spirits in order to restore balance, “wholeness,” harmony, and power to people, animals, plants, places, and the entire planet. This restoration, which takes place on a spiritual level, enhances physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of all life. (Shamanic Practitioners see all physical, mental, and emotional imbalances as manifestations of spiritual imbalances. Unlike western medicine specialists, Shamanic Practitioners do not see their clients as separate parts working separately or disconnected symptoms; they see their clients as WHOLE people; people connected and interconnected to the entire web of life.)

Throughout history, Shamanic Practitioners have provided a wide range of services and served a wide range of roles. Some of the services provided by traditional indigenous Shamans (including Native American Medicine Men and Medicine Women) included:

  • divining information, wisdom, knowledge from both ordinary and non-ordinary reality;
  • acting as intermediaries between ordinary and non-ordinary reality in order to restore (personal and tribal) physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance and well-being;
  • preparing the people for hunting, gathering, and agriculture activities;
  • seeing the future; explaining/interpreting signs and omens;
  • officiating/leading ceremonies (for rites of passage, such as birth, marriage, and coming-of-age);
  • retrieving lost soul parts (soul essence) and extracting “negative” intrusions;
  • communicating with the dead and helping the dying transition to the next level;
  • using plants, plant energies, and plant spirits for healing purposes;
  • communicating with nature spirits and weather elements;
  • singing songs to invoke, connect with, and/or honor helping spirits; or for healing;
  • diagnosing illnesses; teaching apprentices;
  • setting bones, pulling teeth, and treating wounds; interpreting dreams;
  • delivering babies and conducting soul-crossings for the deceased;
  • counseling, advising, and mediating for individuals, couples, families, and tribes;
and many, many other practices!

Basically, at one time, the way of the Shaman was practiced only by hunters and gatherers primarily in order to find food and other resources for their tribe and for energy/spiritual healing. They accomplished this by achieving the expanded state of awareness in which they connected to “spiritual” help. In these traditional cultures, there were often only a few gifted people in the community who were able to perform the shamanic survival duties for sustenance, support, guidance, and healing on behalf of others.

Today, in the twenty-first Century, Shamanic Practitioners work more for individuals instead of tribes; more for the entire community of humankind instead of just one culture. They often practice “combination” shamanism -- a combination of specific indigenous techniques and “core” shamanic techniques (techniques based upon common values, philosophies, and practices found at the core of all traditional shamanic practices).

Today, more and more “Shamanic Practitioners” are realizing (actualizing) that the path of direct revelation brings humanity into a relationship with the spiritual world -- based upon the belief that everything that exists is alive and has a spirit (and a voice), and that there is an energy field that connects all life. This awareness of interconnection is shared by tribal shamans at one end of the human continuum and by quantum physicists and Zen Buddhists at the other.

Shamanic practices offer a direct path to spiritual energy healing and physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance in life. The “dis-eases” of modern life that shamanic practices have been proven to help with include: anxiety, stress, fear/phobias, addictions, chronic pain, dealing with loss/grief, personal empowerment, trauma, fatigue, and recovering from accidents.

Shamanic practices do not supplant Western medicine, but serve as a less invasive way with demonstrable success. These practices are considered a form of Complementary or Alternative Medicine (CAM), and, as such, they are recognized by the National Institute of Health as “conducive to health and wellness.”

Typically, Shamanic Practitioners use special, sacred “tools” to accomplish the meditative “journey” state that is required in order to enter “non-ordinary” reality. These tools are, primarily, the rattle and the drum.

Research has demonstrated how the steady beat of the drum affects the brain, inducing a deep “theta” wave state. In comparison, when we sleep (and are dreaming) our brain typically “fires” nerve impulses in the “delta” wave state (at 1 to 3 cycles per second or Hertz/Hz). When we awaken, the brain typically moves rapidly toward the “alpha” brain wave state (at 8 to 13 Hz). This is a resting state in which we are awake and aware -- but not doing anything in particular. When we start moving about and getting down to work, we move into a “beta” wave state (at 13 to 20 Hz). Beta brain waves are high-frequency waves in which we function for most of our “waking” reality.

During a typical day, the left hemisphere of our cerebrum (the higher brain or “logical” brain) functions primarily in beta waves. The right brain (our “emotional” and “intuitive” brain) remains in alpha. As we move through the day, we shift back and forth between these two halves of our brain, and shift from beta (working, concentrating, problem-solving) to alpha (daydreaming, reflecting, creating).

The theta brain wave state is an in-between zone, in which the brain typically fires nerve impulses between 4 and 7 Hz. This is a deep, reflective, dreamlike state -- a state that has been recorded in Zen Masters, people in transcendental meditation, and Shamanic Practitioners during their “journeys” to non-ordinary reality.

When Shamanic Practitioners listen to the monotonous, rhythmic beating of a drum or the shake of a rattle -- at 4 to 7 beats or shakes per second -- both halves of the cerebrum synchronize, slow down, and start firing at 4 to 7 Hz. This allows the practitioner to enter the theta state. The drum, in particular, has been scientifically shown to produce changes in the human central nervous system (affecting the electrical activity in the brain).

Native Americans have a simpler explanation why the drumbeat works so effectively in reaching a state that connects people to the spiritual -- that it has the same “pulse” as Mother Earth. (Science has even confirmed this -- showing that the Earth’s background base frequency, called “Schumann Resonance” has been rated at 7.8 cycles per second, with theta registering in the same brain wave state.)

Distance Core Shamanic Services

As a Core Shamanic Practitioner, Kristina offers these distance healing services include: 

·         Divination (through the use of objects of nature, or through journey);
·         Dreamwork (interpretation and wisdom-insight from journey);
·         Power Animal Retrieval (connecting/reconnecting you with your own Power Animal);
·         Soul Retrieval (locating lost soul energy due to trauma, abuse, addiction, etc.);
·         Extractions (releasing you from unwanted “negative” energies that no longer serve you);
·         Psychopomp (sacred work with the dying to ensure peace and harmony; and journey work to ensure that deceased loved ones have safely passed to the light);
·         Healing Words (connecting you with the power of words for healing and balance);

Divination

Have a question that you struggle with; that you just can’t seem to find the answer for? Should you take the job? Should you quit the one you have? Should you marry this person? Is it the right time to have a child?

Yes, you do already have the answers within you! However, working with divine, compassionate healing spirits, Kristina can journey into non-ordinary reality and bring back information, wisdom, and/or knowledge that can confirm or, at least, solidify, your own inner wisdom.

Using the ancient and time-test technique of using natural objects (such as rocks) or specifically journeying into non-ordinary reality, Kristina can access a higher Source in order to help answer your questions.

If you’re looking for someone else to make your decisions for you, this shamanic technique is not for you; however, if you want to seek clarity of purpose and thought -- to find and connect with you own inner wisdom and the Source of all guidance, then this a be a fun, exciting, and deeply resonating experience!

Questions to Avoid

·         “Yes” or “no” questions cannot be answered (such as, “Is she/he the right mate for me?). This is because it is believed that these types of answers take away (or reduce) your power of choice -- YOU must always find, and be responsible for, your own “Yes, I will…” or “Yes, he is…” and your own “No, I won’t…” or “No, she isn’t…” decisions!
·         “Will I…” questions cannot be answered (such as, “Will I win the lottery?”). This is because it is believed that these types of answers are “prophesy” (telling the future), which our helping spirits will not do -- because this then affects your forward-motion in life (your ability and probability of making decisions/choices based upon this type of prophesy). Our future is not to be revealed as fact -- not until it is our present, and it is a fact!
·         “Should I…?” questions cannot be answered (such as, should I look for a new job?). Again, what you should and should not do in your own life is always your choice and your responsibility (which is a very, very good thing -- it is what gives you power and maturity in your being).
·         Questions about time/timing cannot be answered (such as, “Am I going to meet the right person by the spring?”). This is because our helping spirits “live” outside of this time/space realm -- they cannot answer when something will or will not happen.

Questions to Ask

·         “How can I…?” questions can be answered (such as, “How can I maximize my chances of getting this job?”). In journey, Kristina can receive specific instructions, insights, and answers to these types of questions. (And what a rewarding journey experience!)
·         “What are the consequences of…?”  (such as, “What are the consequences of driving to see my friend in San Francisco?”) In journey, Kristina can receive specific information regarding the potential consequences of an action you are considering taking. (Keeping in mind the potential aspect -- as our future is never written in stone; every second and every action can lead to new futures and new possibilities!)
·         “Why…?” questions can be answered (such as, “Why am I experiencing this illness?). In journey, Kristina’s spirit helpers (and your own) will provide rich potential reasons for what you are currently experiencing in your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual body.

Whether exploring divination through the answers provided by natural objects (a technique that Kristina can perform for you -- or one that she can teach to you) or through journeywork, answers are often given in detailed, rich, metaphorical and archetypal language -- the language of your soul. Working with Kristina, you can become a detective in discovering a much deeper answer than any your “conscious” mind can provide. This is often a “team” effort -- the helping spirits may “show” Kristina you flying a World War II airplane, but you get the opportunity to dig deep and discover what that means to you -- and how that answers your question in a way you could only otherwise dream of!

Dreamwork

Speaking of dreams -- has a “big dream” rocked your world, but you’re just not sure exactly what it means; or what it means for your life and your future?

In this unique spiritual environment, you will have the opportunity to work with Kristina in exploring the nature, meaning, and use of your dreams (and your archetypal/dream language). You will learn how to de-code the symbols and archetypal metaphors of your dream life -- and see what Source is trying to communicate to you -- for your energetic health and well-being!

Our dreams regularly provide the ways and means to improve and enhance our lives, and yet they go “unnoticed” by most of us, most of the time. This is a tragedy! Focusing on the message behind the imagery can make the difference between dis-ease and enhanced well-being; between depression and contentment; between walking down a road that will not serve your highest needs and diving into the source of pure joy and fulfillment!

Kristina can journey to the source of your dreams -- and find the answers you need to move forward in a healthy and productive and integrated way! Layer-by-magical layer, you can work with Kristina, as a team, to find the truth within the dream; the truth that resonates to the core of your being -- ensuring that your dreams manifest in a bountiful and positive manner.

Power Animal Retrieval

Throughout history, animals have played a vital role in providing material and spiritual support and insight for human life. Our ancestors depended upon animals for much of their material life. Animals provided food, clothing, ornamentation, tools, weapons, medicine, shelter, transportation, and companionship. They served as “harbingers” of seasonal change, danger, and fluctuations in the weather.

Compared to humans, animals collectively possess greater strengths and powers. They can run faster; swim better; see, hear, and smell more acutely; climb better, hunt more successfully, and (of course) fly. Our ancestors looked to animals (and to animals in spirit or “archetypal” form, who had even greater powers than individual animals) as teachers, companions, and guides throughout life. This connection to animals is built-in to the core of our DNA.

Many indigenous cultures believe that we all have at least one “Power Animal” (or “Totem” animal) that travels with us from birth. This Power Animal offers a unique and specific energetic essence, such as courage (perhaps Bear?) or wisdom (perhaps Owl?) or joy (perhaps Dolphin?) or patience (perhaps Turtle?) or love (perhaps Dove?) or freedom (perhaps Eagle?) or acceptance or grace or focus or….

When we were children, we were in direct contact with our Power Animals; however, as we grew older (especially in western cultures) we were encouraged to disconnect from this source of wealth and knowledge -- as well as from with anything and everything that could not be “sensed” by our basic five senses. In that process, we lost a very critical “power” -- a power designed to enhance our existence in this realm.

Working with Kristina (and using an ancient, time-tested technique), you can reconnect with your Power Animal -- and, by doing so, the specific energetic essence that Power Animal holds for you. When you reconnect to this lost power, you reconnect to a core element/energy of your soul!  Once in relationship with a human, each Power Animal serves as a teacher, revealing the power (or “medicine”) that it carries for you. And once you have reconnected, you can stay connected to this power and energy. Whenever you need to, or want to, you can fly with Eagle, swim with Dolphin, stand tall and courageous with Bear, run wild and free across the mountain meadows with Wolf! [Keeping in mind, of course, that one Power Animal does not have more “power” than another. The spirit of the Mouse has just as much power as the spirit of the Tiger -- but each offers you different power essences. Do you need to realize the power of “moving” through the small details (like a Mouse) or do you need to realize the power of “courage” (like a Grizzly Bear) to achieve your larger dreams?)

What is your Power Animal? And why are you waiting?

Soul Retrieval

As we grow and move through our lives, we are bombarded by “traumas” that exceed the ability of our soul to comprehend. Maybe we were abused as children (physical, sexual, mental, or emotional); traumatized by a car accident; brutalized by combat; or enslaved by addictions to alcohol or drug -- whatever the reason, we lost, in that moment, an essential piece of our soul.

In modern language, this is often referred to as Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD is often characterized by: 1) re-experiencing the events (through flashbacks forcing you to relive the trauma over and over again, bad dreams, or anxious/frightening thoughts); 2) avoidance symptoms (staying away from places, events, or objects that are reminders of the experience; feeling emotionally numb; feeling strong guilt, depression, or worry; losing interest in activities that were enjoyable in the past; and/or having trouble remembering the event); or 3) hyperarousal symptoms (being easily startled; feeling tense or “on edge,” and/or having difficulty sleeping, and/or having angry/emotional outbursts).

In traditional language, it was simply referred to as Soul Loss. If you are experiencing Soul Loss, you might hear yourself saying such things as:
  •  I felt like a part of me died that day.
  •  I feel like I lost my innocence when that happened.
  •  It was as if I lost my freedom (my faith, my hope, my will to live, etc.) that day.


Or, more correctly, “I feel like I lost a piece of my soul when that happened.”

Well, on an energetic level, you did exactly lost. You did, in fact, lose a piece of your soul. Your soul is who you really are. Contrary to popular belief, you are not your thoughts, emotions, opinions, ideas, and what you do for a living -- you are so much more! You are energy -- pure, high-vibrational energy. Your soul is pure spiritual essence that flows through you and around you. It is the life-force energy that sustains you. If you have become “disconnected” from or “lost” some of this energy (part of your soul) then you are operating (or attempting to operate) at less than full capacity. And, if this is the case, you are probably experiencing a myriad of symptoms of that energy loss.

This “Soul Loss” is a spiritual, emotional, and psychological “dis-ease” that occurs when part of your soul “splits off” due to trauma (abuse, neglect, addiction, abandonment, accident, surgery, the breakup of a relationship, even witnessing a traumatic event). The trauma doesn’t even have to be considered “severe” in order to result in soul loss (pain, as always, is relative). Soul Loss can result in symptoms such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, emotional “numbness,” a weakened immune system, frequent or chronic illness, and even a feeling of “emptiness” inside that no amount of activity can fill.

Soul Loss need not be permanent. Across the globe and throughout time, Shamans and Shamanic Practitioners have journeyed to the Source and brought back the soul “energy” that was lost. The simple, yet very powerful, act of reconnection (“retrieving”) this soul energy can bring you back up to full capacity (harmony, balance, happiness, peace, joy…). It is this energy than can, and will, make a significant difference in your life -- by enhancing it! You can regain the soul’s natural state of being -- which is that of open expression, giving/receiving abundance, empathy, intuition, and substantive action that makes a difference in this world!

Working with Kristina in this sacred, spiritual practice, you can regain what was lost. You can reconnect with your lost innocence, courage, drive, youth, vitality, happiness, spirit, freedom, faith -- you can have your wholeness restored. Without having to re-live the trauma (this is not talk therapy!), you can experience what tens of thousands of people have experienced -- you can have back what was taken from you -- the wholeness of your very soul.

Extraction of Unwanted Energy

Many believe that there is no “negative” energy, per se; that all energy is simply energy. What makes it “positive” or “negative” is whether or not it serves our physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being.

Energy may not be “negative,” but it can be unwanted! Energy can attach itself to our core being without our awareness. Have you ever heard yourself say:

  •          I felt like I got kicked in the gut when I walked in that house!
  •          I feel like the spirit of _____ (someone who was unkind or abusive to you) just won’t leave me alone!
  •          I couldn’t take enough baths to get the creepiness of that guy (or gal) off of me!

Yes, it can -- and does -- happen on a regular basis. As it does, we tend to collect, and carry around with us, energy that does not belong to us. This “unwanted” energy can cause a great deal of harm -- from just “weighing” us down to actually making us physically ill (or disempowered).

Working with Kristina, you can release what does not belong to you -- and be free to open up the space in your own physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual being that uplifts and energizes and heals you!

Psychopomp (Work with Death and Dying)

Traditionally called “psychopomp” -- this is sacred work with the dying that is designed to ensure peace and harmony during the transition; and journey work to ensure that deceased loved ones have safely passed to the light.

In our western cultural experience, death has been banished to the depths of fear and terror. Throughout the ages, many cultures celebrated death and dying; not seeing it as an “end” -- a journey into nothingness, but as a “transition” to a higher dimension of spirit.

Kristina works with people who are dying in a compassionate and divinely guided manner; helping ease fear and doubt and increase faith and hope in what lies ahead -- for all of us! She also works with families who are concerned that deceased loved ones have not passed into the light. Trained by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies in psychopomp, Kristina has guided souls to the other side -- and finds it a joyful and abundantly rewarding endeavor!

Just as energy can never be created and, therefore, never destroyed -- we live on forever. It is essential that we live up to our own code of honor and truth and dignity -- not to the code of others! It is Kristina’s belief, after visiting the other side numerous times, that what we believe is what we get; and the more we prepare for a positive, uplifting, and “ascending” experience in death, the more likely that is exactly what we will experience.

We can fear and tremble at the thought of death and dying, or we can align our spirit with our own code of truth -- and approach the light with only tears of joy! It is, as always, our choice.

Healing Words

In the beginning, there was the word.

There is great power in words -- and whether they are healing or harmful rests solely in the intent with which they are expressed!

For centuries, people have been given “words” (mantras, songs, poems, stories) that have the power to heal their physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual being.

Working with Kristina, you can be given “healing words” that do just that -- heal! In journey, Kristina seeks direct revelation from Source, and returns with words just for you. Whether you are seeking healing and power for a specific issue (that is, to say when your back is causing you pain or when you have to stand up and make a speech or when you have to nail that interview for that job) or whether you just want healing words that you can speak/sing whenever you need a “power boost,” then this is an experience you will treasure -- and use -- forever!
