A four winds shaman (fictional, but very true-to-life) and his energy medicine is part of the new CBS series “A Gifted Man”. In the preview you can see bits and pieces — Patrick Wilson’s character comes to see the shaman to extract a soul of the dead loved woman who is haunting him.
So.…. Extraction, anyone?
Extraction is a tool of the jungle shamans of the Amazon. I can extract energies and entities which tend to attach to people’s energy bodies. Their presence can be very annoying and show itself as a variety of different symptoms — “not feeling like yourself”, feeling very emotional about a loved one who passed away a while ago, literally being told what to do by the entity, etc. During extraction not only the entity is removed — we look as the benefits of having had the relationship with it, which in 100% of cases is symbiotic. Just like in “a Gifted Man” — we are not always ready to part with something, because there is an unresolved feeling behind all that superficial annoyance.
Notes on the trailer to “A Gifted Man” for the curious ones — what on earth is the shaman doing there?
“To the winds of the South.…. Wrap your coils of light around us” — that’s part of the prayer that we say when we open sacred space before beginning of the work.
The shaman blows florida water into the air (smudging) and makes a half-joke about “sterilizing” his space. When I open my sacred space I do the same thing — it cleanses the space energetically and creates a safe and protected environment for energy work.
Rattling — that’s part of our work for many reasons, helps to relax, get out of the head, and is instrumental in working with the energy body.
Touching the head — that’s part of the basic Illumination process. I press the deepening and release points at the base of a person’s head to guide them deeper in their experience.
Stones — every shaman in this tradition has a mesa (you can see colorful red woven cloth in the trailer) which is a portable altar, a bundle of medicine stones (kuyas). Kuya is placed on the body during Illumination (wherever the issue is mostly resonating) and it helps to extract heavy energies associated with the issue.
