Shamanic journey is one of the main methods used by traditional cultures to access the guidance and the help of the Spirit world.
During a shamanic journey, we enter the realms of no-ordinary reality and meet our own Helping Spirits and Power Animals to receive guidance and healing, both for ourselves or for people we journey for.
The drum or other percussion instruments are played with steady beat to help shift consciousness and create the conditions for the visionary experience to take place.
Shamanic journey is called a method of direct revelation, because allows every one of us to enter in contact with the knowledge of the Helping Spirits and our own inner wisdom. By doing this, we can receive information which is accurate and appropriate for us in this moment in life, in a way we can understand.
During a journey, we can ask the Helping Spirits questions about topics relevant to us. Those question can be about our spiritual or material life. After all, while it is a spiritual discipline, Shamanism focuses on obtaining practical and concrete results. In traditional cultures, shamans used their connection with the Spiritual world to find food sources, healing plants and techniques, safe places to live and knowledge to assure the well-being of the community.
