Shamanic Case Study – Childhood Trauma

Weekend Dog Trauma at Petersfield Heath

On Friday afternoon I decided to enjoy total relaxation during my weekend alone; with a social media detox and no paperwork or other work-related activity.  On Saturday morning I bought myself breakfast from the market on my way to The Heath for my favourite dog walk.  As I sat on a bench overlooking the pond, I felt gratitude for the misty morning and the beauty of the still water.  But my reverie was soon broken by three large dogs running towards me; they were off the lead and their owner was nowhere in sight.  As they tried grabbing my food I shouted out for the owner to call them back, but to no avail.

Eventually, they left to hassle another dog off the lead and pandemonium soon broke out as the owner of the other dog went in to pull his out of the fray.  I watched as one of the three dogs went and investigated each of the fishermen’s tents along the waterside, before running back over to the Plump Duck.  A few minutes later they all came running back for another try at grabbing my food, which was very distressing.  Eventually, the owner came sauntering along and I asked him why he wasn’t taking control of his dogs and he smirked as one of them continued to jump up for the remainder of my pork pie.

My stomach was churning, I felt upset and angry that my relaxing morning had been so brutally disturbed by such a man with a total lack of empathy or consideration for others.  After finishing my tea I went for a walk in the woods and did some grounding and healing with an old tree and felt much better so that I was able to enjoy the rest of my day.

On Sunday morning I had managed to eat my breakfast from the Farmers Market in peace and was halfway around the wooded area of The Heath when the same three dogs came racing up; again off the lead with the owner out of sight.  They were jumping at my much smaller dog who was on the lead and yelped in fright. This put me in fear again and I felt tension in my gut as I looked around for the owner with a sense of helplessness and distress.  When he eventually appeared I asked him why he wasn’t calling the dogs back to him so they didn’t go out of sight, and again I got the same nonchalant response.

For the second time in two days, I was left very shaky and upset and I wondered why this traumatic experience was happening to me again. Why was the universe twice creating this situation to disrupt my relaxation?

Then my mind went silent and a picture came into my mind from childhood of a huge black dog with big teeth (just like the photo I used) running across the road and attacking me as I walked home alone from a friend’s house.  Instead of helping me the owner just screamed at me to stand still while allowing the dog to continue to jump up at me; its muddy paws pressing against my chest and shoulders.  I was terrified and there was nobody to help.

I soon realised that the incident at The Heath had triggered a deep trauma that had remained hidden away for over 40 years; the sense of fear, helplessness, and threat of being bitten all came back causing me to become tearful.  I was in shock that this could happen on one of my favourite walks – what if a child had been with me?  Another trauma would have been created from a lack of consideration by an irresponsible dog owner.

At home, I did a Shamanic Healing on myself; I went back to that point in place and time with the Doberman and did what was necessary to reassure and assist my young self as a child.  I then conducted an extraction on myself to remove the negative energy from that first assault, and then performed a soul retrieval, returning the lost soul parts (otherwise known as life-force energy) which were suspended in that time and place. Finally, I changed the agreement that had been set around the first trauma to prevent it from being triggered again.

During the healing, I cried a lot and felt feelings of abandonment, which was really unpleasant.  As an uncontrollable fit of terror was being released I was told that by allowing it all to come out I would be able to move forward with a greater sense of confidence and empowerment.  It was exhausting.

I have realised that this is how the universe can send us the healing that we need; through unexpected incidents that use others as a tool for us to access the traumas that are deeply locked away.  I write with gratitude to the man at The Health; without his lack of care or consideration, I would not have had the opportunity to access this wound.  But I do hope that others are vigilant so that another child isn’t traumatised.

The Shamen who cared for our ancient ancestors would not have waited more than three days to deal with the effects of a traumatic experience such as this, as such the individual would not have to carry such a burden for a lifetime.  But in recent times, our obsession with drugs to suppress symptoms and surgery to cut out problems has left us unable to deal with healing on a spiritual level.  I had five years of psychotherapy and SSRIs but that did nothing to heal this deeply-held trauma.

Shamanic Case Study – Distance Extraction

ML is in Shamanic training and asked me to conduct an Extraction Journey because she had perceived an intrusion and asked for assistance with its removal.

I conducted a Distance Healing Session focussing on Extraction only, which was not the complete session I would usually provide.

I journeyed to my team and we discovered three intrusions; two on the front of her torso and one on the back.  We removed the negative energy from these sites and identified that it originated from her mother.

To ensure that the intrusion does not return, we asked if there was an agreement in place.  ML had made an agreement around her mother’s behaviour which was protecting the intrusion and causing ML to repeat the pattern in her relationships.  We gave ML a new agreement so that she could change her pattern of behaviour and stop being held back in her relationships by the old one.

At the end of the session, we were sealing in the new agreement and a female nun came into view; she said she was an ancestor who had come to protect her.

In her feedback, ML said that the journey resonated for her and that she had previously been struggling to work through some of the aspects of it herself.  She confirmed that the old agreement came from her mother.

ML said that the female nun was her great-aunt from her mother’s side and is welcomed support as she works through issues surrounding her conservative religious upbringing.

Shamanic Case Study: Pharmaceutical Drugs

Healing the Side Effects of Pharmaceutical Drugs

Having received two blood transfusions I was discharged from the hospital to wait for my surgery date to be booked.

To prevent further bleeding I was prescribed three prescription drugs to take daily during this waiting time.

For the previous two and a half years I hadn’t had so much as one paracetamol. As a result, I was feeling very tired, unable to concentrate, and feeling disconnected from my Shamanic practices.

This was compounded by having had seven days in the hospital without meditation, grounding, or Qi Gung and being in a busy environment surrounded by electromagnetic radiation so I was very much depleted.

I contacted Scott, my teacher from Shamanic Spirit Medicine, for advice and he recommended contacting the Possessing Spirits of the drugs I was taking and extracting them from my body along with a soul retrieval to return any soul parts that I had lost during the hospital stay.

Having repeated this exercise several times I suddenly got my energy back and felt well enough to go to a friend’s birthday dinner which I really enjoyed.

This experience has taught me that when prescription medication is required to save our lives, we can support ourselves with Shamanic techniques if we are negatively affected.

Shamanic Case Study: Cause of Physical Illness

This is an example of how Spiritual Healing can work alongside allopathic medicine and surgery to assist healing in the physical body.

Due to high blood loss, I was taken to the hospital where a CT scan showed a fibroid measuring 11 cm in diameter in my uterus connected down one edge to the middle layer of the uterine wall which required urgent surgery.

My Shamanic teacher, Scott Silverston, conducted a distance healing on me to address the spiritual aspects of the illness. He and his spirit helpers entered my uterus and saw a cut in the back wall which couldn’t heal due to a sword stabbing in from behind. This was causing heavy bleeding.

The spirit guides showed Scott how my mother had been stabbing me in the back all of my life with her anger and judgment of me. I had a pattern which was set in childhood whereby my mother would use me to process her emotions for her which left me tired, drained, and lacking the energy to fulfil my potential.

The spirit helpers conversed with her and she told them she didn’t like that ‘I am no longer taking care of her emotional needs’ and that ‘I am prioritising my own needs over hers’.

The sword was removed by the spirit helpers holding onto it as I chose to walk away along my true path where my mother cannot follow. The guides discover that she is a soul thief who has gained power for herself by taking my soul parts which she is told to return so that I can regain my personal power. She has hundreds of them, hidden away in different places and initially refuses to return them!

I keep the sword as a reminder of martyrdom, the old experiences, and the wounds that I bear that drove me to seek a new path. I pick up the sword to cut away the obstacles that are holding me back from realising my true potential.

I now stand in a warrior position with the broadsword pointing up to the sky and I’m standing strong in my power: nothing will get in my way.

This experience has taught me that sustained emotional abuse by a narcissist can be a cause of illness in the physical body. Indeed through my research I discovered that abuse in childhood is listed on some websites as a cause for fibroids which then grow bigger with increased stress.

Shamanic Case Study: House Healing

This is an example of the power of Shamanic healing on the spirit of a home.

Having bought a 100 year old house in a state of disrepair and neglect, which I had to live in, I decided to renovate the house room by room. Finally I get to the thirty-year old bathroom which has tiles dropping off the wall and a leak on the shower. I hire a competent plumber who has a week of bad luck: the ceiling falls down, the electrics are messed up, the extractor fan doesn’t have an external outlet and has made the insulation in the loft soggy, and when he tries to chip the tiles off the walls the plaster comes away in huge chunks.

So what to do? I decided to give the bathroom a Shamanic energy healing, focussing all my attention on removing the stuck energy which is preventing the renovations from moving along at a quicker pace. I then fill the room with light and ask my spirit guides to bring their assistance for the work to go more smoothly.

That evening I am alerted by cars swooshing through water on the road outside that there is water gushing up through the manhole cover on the boundary of my property. I phone the water company who come out and end up clearing the sewage drains all the way along my street. The stuck energy had pushed out of my house and into the sewer creating a blockage which was thankfully fixed.
