The healing that changed my life! It was so liberating!
Ross has a healing practice in East Sussex (near Brighton ) where face-to-face shamanic healings, counselling and therapy are available. Distance healing is also available worldwide.
Shamanic healings normally take two-three hours and have three stages:
The first involves a therapeutic discussion to establish what's going on and why. This allows me to ‘tune in' to you and can help us both gain clarity on the real issue as well as insights into its nature.
Following this, energy work begins which often includes the use of crystals, reiki-like techniques, shamanic journeying, the use of drums, chants and so on.
Then there is a feedback session where you will be given guidance on your problem and the healing procedures I've used. This is also your opportunity to ask questions or discuss your own insights which may have arisen during the healing. Anything you say (or that I say to you) is always treated in confidence.
Shamans say that whenever we are hurt, traumatised or shocked in some way parts of our soul (or energy) may leave our bodies. Sometimes these soul parts become lost, unable or unwilling to return, a condition known as soul loss. Healing is through the return of these soul parts, known as soul retrieval .
We may also become ill or dis-empowered through the effects of others or the impact of life upon us, a process where energy emanations - or ‘spirit intrusions' - enter our bodies and can harm us. Healing is through the removal of these intrusions and the return of power, known as spirit extraction and power retrieval .
Before either of these techniques is used, however, it is usually necessary to realign and rebalance the energy body, which can be affected by the stresses of life, the trauma of illness, daily pressures from unsatisfactory circumstances, and so on. Energy re-balancing means that power or soul can come back to a safe place when it is retrieved through shamanic healing work. This may be accomplished through crystal medicine, energy practices similar to reiki, or other techniques which operate at a non-physical level.
For those who find it less easy to travel, distance healing is also available. Because shamanic healing mostly takes place on an energetic level clients do not always need to be present in the same room or even the same country as the healer. This is known as distance (or absent) healing and it means that your location is not an issue.
In lieu of a face-to-face meeting we agree a date and time for your healing and at the appointed hour I will then perform the healing for you. The process involves energy work, power retrieval and extraction as required, carried out in the same way as above.
I will normally then send you a report by email of the healing that took place, which will often contain further suggestions for things you can do to aid good health based on my assessment of your problems during the shamanic journey I take for you.
The healing was great! The only way I can describe what I experienced (which happened after our healing) is to say that I was so happy, so full of joy and wholeness I couldn't believe it. After going through a very tough year of painful but necessary growth, to feel a little joy was a welcomed relief. But what's really bizarre is your letter [healing report]! My jaw just about hit the floor. Damn, Ross, you're good. You were really on target with your assessment—right down to the wallpaper! Wow, I'm still stunned. The whole virus-thing, or whatever it was, is also much better now. When I get my radio career back on track, I would love to interview you (and order one of your books)!
My doctors could not believe the change in me. The scar tissue on my lungs has completely healed, which they said was impossible, and for the first time in years I can walk without effort and gasping for breath!
Hi Ross - I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for a tremendous healing last night. It truly blew me away!!! And do you know, for the first time in a year, I was able to walk without feeling I was on a curve - and today, NO DIZZINESS! It was the most relaxing feeling. I could feel it happening about 18:50 [when the healing session began] and it continued for a good 3 quarters of an hour - this total feeling of well-being - like I was a protected in a cocoon. There were subtle feelings of warmth in various parts of my body at certain times of the session and I have never seen such a huge flame that flickered out of the candle. As I reckoned the session was completing there seemed to be a wind round the flame that blew it here and there. I had to retire to bed after because I was a bit ‘altered' and I had very deep dreams!!! Many many thanks. I am so thrilled!!!
Thanks so much for your recent healing and also the really amazing detailed report. My condition has improved... I am also feeling a lot calmer and that I have more energy for the first time in years. I am really amazed by your report and I think it is very accurate. Once again thanks so much for your help and insight.
I am constantly amazed by how powerful your healings are and I also love the fact that my own awareness of energy 'wakes up' through your healings. So, thank you again!
Reading your report has been useful. Absolutely everything that you wrote resonates, there was nothing I frowned at. I have a clearer picture of what I should do now which started to emerge after the healing and I feel that I am moving forward now so I'm very grateful for your work.
I feel so very grateful to you for the healing actions that you undertook during my session. The hope that you brought infused me [and] the knowledge of the work you did on my energetic body has given me a spark of hope and encouragement, which I feel growing into a strong flame of faith, in my body's ability to recover and heal. I had always believed that I could completely recover, but this flame had dimmed over the past 12 months - I now feel my belief like a strong energy within. About one month after the session, I found the strength to undertake a pilgrimage back to my birth place; something I had felt called to do for many years, but had not been able to do. Soon after the healing session, I felt the return of more personal power. I feel like I am emerging from a mist that had depressed my mood, disempowered me, clouded my senses... now I feel free to find my own way. My practitioner wants to retake tests and review his theory, so external changes are happening too. So many people have tried to help me, but the Soul Healing and actions you performed are what I really needed . This is where shamanic healing stands head and shoulders above many healing methods and it is such a relief to have finally found the help I was seeking. I wish I could convey how relieved I feel to have arrived at this point - it is truly a gift - a key that can open doors. With thanks,
The healing session has really done something special and I must say I do feel different. As you predicted I have had lots of thoughts and feelings come to me out of the blue but they all make sense and it's a relief to be able to give meaning to them.
Thank you so much for your beautiful work. It was an incredible experience and what you told me corresponds amazingly to my issue and my personal history. I already feel more solid in myself, regaining something I lost a long time ago. I know that a new, rich process has started and I'm already feeling the effects in physical terms. I am very grateful to you and eager to see how this process develops.
I am impressed! My healing session with you was deep and full of gentleness. I am less agitated and my physical complaint eased by about 95 percent for the first time in 5 months.
You have given me hope!!! I honestly felt that I received a lot of strong and powerful gentleness and also an inner quiet which has lasted.
Thank you so much for your work and for my healing. Many things resonated deeply with me even if I haven't known them on a conscious level. I feel inspired and relieved and my energy levels have already changed. There are no words really I can write to express how I feel. Still, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
I am presented with a minor miracle, a miracle that I didn't really believe I would ever receive. I send grateful thanks for what you did!
It's amazing that it was only last week that I saw you, it seems I have lived a lifetime since then. Thank you for an unbelievable experience - there's a joy so deep inside me that I catch myself beaming with pleasure without realising it. It's as if I am in touch with myself and the joy of this is indescribable - I'm finally complete! For the first time in ever such a long time, I'm not scared of laughing. Thank you again and a million times more.
Thank you for the most amazing journey of my life. It has been revealing and regenerating. A new me was born.
These are answers to some of the questions I am often asked about shamanic healing, what it involves and how it works.
Shamanic healing is a process of working with soul or energy. All shamanic healers understand this but their methods may vary. I offer shamanic healing and counselling in the form of Soul Therapy which involves a heart-to-heart, spirit-to-spirit guidance session followed by energy work to restore and empower the client's life-force.
The shamanic techniques of power retrieval, soul retrieval, energy balancing and spirit extraction - approaches common throughout the shamanic world - are employed in your healing, which typically involves the use of energy work, drums, rattles, stones, crystals, etc, as well as spiritual guidance and recommendations for self-healing in the form of suggestions for life changes to restore balance and equilibrium.
Shamans say that whenever we are hurt, traumatised, or shocked in some way parts of our soul (or energy) may leave our bodies. Sometimes these soul parts become lost, unable, or unwilling to return, a condition known as soul loss. Healing is through the return of these soul parts or energy, known as soul retrieval.
We may also become ill or dis-empowered through the effects of others or the impact of life upon us, a process where energy emanations - or ‘spirit intrusions' - enter our bodies and harm us. Healing is through the removal of these intrusions and the return of power, known as spirit extraction.
Before either of these techniques is used, however, it is usually necessary to realign and rebalance the energy body, which can be affected by the stresses of life, the trauma of illness, daily pressures from unsatisfactory circumstances, and so on. Energy balancing means that your soul comes back to a safe place when it is returned through retrieval.
Do I need to wear anything special for a healing or bring anything with me?
Wear comfortable loose-fitting clothes. Rugs, blankets and pillows are provided but feel free to bring a sleeping bag or blanket for extra comfort.
It's a good idea to spend a little time before your healing meditating on the nature of your problem and the outcome you'd like so this is clear to you. You don't need to bring anything else or prepare in any other way.
Distance healing sessions usually take 1to an 1.5 hours but face-to-face consultations can vary because of the greater detail you may wish to enter into during the consultative phase, so rather than give a definite start and finish time I prefer to be as flexible as possible and do what is needed when we meet, then we don't have to interrupt the session at an important moment just to book another appointment. Typical sessions may therefore take 2-3 hours depending on the nature of the problem.
Is healing a one-off or will I need to attend a number of times?
It depends on what we are dealing with so it's difficult to say until we've met and know what the problem is. It also depends on your needs as you may prefer a series of sessions. Deep-seated problems are likely to take longer to heal, as they would with any therapy or visit to a conventional doctor. Some clients also like repeat healings on a monthly or other basis as a sort of energetic ‘top-up' once the deeper work has begun.
I normally recommend that you receive your first healing and we can discuss follow-up work after that.
Face-to-face healings are held in Newhaven, which is very easy to reach by train or bus. If you can't get there, distance healing is an effective option or I can send you a list of shamanic practitioners in the UK and overseas who have trained with The Four Gates and we are confident of their abilities. If you are interested in our retreats and specialist healing journeys, it is best to request an information pack. This contains all the details.
As its name implies, distance healing is shamanic healing conducted when the person receiving it is not present in the same place as the healer. It is also known as ‘absent healing'. Because shamanic healing mostly takes place on an energetic level clients do not always need to be in the same room or even the same country as the healer. This can therefore be a good method for clients who find it difficult to travel and many have benefited from distance healing and find that it works well for them.
Especially if I haven't met you before I will probably ask you to send me a few items in advance of your scheduled session: a candle on which you have written your name and a note describing the problem as you perceive it and the outcome you'd like. Depending on the nature of our specific work other things may also be needed, such as a photograph or a personal item, but this is rare and I will let you know if it is the case. We then agree a date and time for the work.
A free information pack is available which contains a little more detail on healing and distance healing. Email email@example.com to request one.
I have also written several books on shamanism and shamanic healing which are available in bookstores, at www.amazon.co.uk and www.amazon.com . Alternatively, if you have questions of a practical and non-specific nature which are not covered here, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'd like to go ahead. What next?
Email me to let me know (email@example.com) and we will arrange a date and time for your healing.
