The Shamanic Journey From all the rituals that exist, the Shamanic Journey is very important in shamanic practises to bring healing and harmony on all levels of your being.
A Shamanic Journey is a way of exploring the spiritual realms, and making contact with spirits, spirit animals, power animals, lost souls, angels, ancestors, elders, or departed shamans.
It is a way of finding out more about yourself, or finding information, healing, wisdom, knowledge, and guidance with one’s personal life.
There are many ways to do Shamanic Journeys, with rattles, music, singing, dancing, and drumming. Drumming Rhythm Drumming is the oldest form of healing on Earth.
Just by simply listening to the drums will have many positive effects on you, because it alters your brain-waves, similar to Binaural Beats. Drumming brings you to a relaxed state. It distracts you from all the thoughts you have. It simply relaxes your busy mind, and your whole body. Drumming brings you to a higher consciousness where healing can happen, and where all your questions can be answered.
Even if you are not practicing shamanic rituals, the drumming rhythm will still have great benefits for you. Normally you need someone who drums for you so that you can go on a journey.
But these days we are lucky and can use modern technology, like a CD player, or mp3 player. There are some CD’s for shamanic journeys out there and they are perfect for “city-shamans” like us. Trance When you listen to the drumming rhythm you will go into a trance-like state. Trance is nothing more than a state of consciousness, that you can reach through dancing, music, breathing, or meditation.
I know for sure that you have experienced a state of trance already just by day dreaming. Trance is like a very deep relaxation. In this state, and with your eyes closed, you are able to visit other worlds, or other realities. But everything that you see happens only in your mind. The includes meditation will give you an idea about the kind of drumming music you will use for shamanic journeying. This meditation is part of my online course “How To Do A Shamanic Journey“
