Understanding that we are connected, to everything, is fundamentally the essence of shamanism. For tens of thousands of years a shamanic way of being has existed in our culture and within us. Being connected actually allows us to live life fully..... a level of consciousness that allows the enjoyment of our human experiences to flow.
I have known Natalie for a couple of years, and in that time I have experienced the different styles and aspects to her work. The most recent being the shamanic practices and rituals which Natalie has an intuitive affinity for. I have always found her compassionate approach and spiritual method both affective and insightful. I have received from Natalie, both her knowledge as a homeopath and as a shamanic practitioner and have undergone, experienced and understood a lot with her.
It is hard to quantify precisely the effect of my course of treatments, but it coincided with a very positive change in my outlook and circumstances, and my intuition tells me the homeopathic remedies were key. I have consulted a few homeopaths before; Natalie is wiser and more understanding than most. She has an ability to connect with and assess the whole person - inside and out. I am grateful to have received the benefit of her support and expertise at a time when I felt very stressed and uncertain. I am now a more contented person, closer to my true nature - and so much happier for that.
Having been a friend of Natalie for a few years, we have chatted a little about Shamanism, so when she told me about a Blind Folded Walk she was leading in a few weeks, I decided to sign up. In the past few years, I found my life was missing something & I knew it was to do with a 'connection' to well again, something . Nothing major, I am lucky to lead a very happy life , but I felt I needed to reach out to the natural world. I purposefully, did not look into the world of the Shaman before my walk, I just turned up one sunny Saturday morning & got blind folded !!! I do not want to reveal too much about my experience in case you want to try it - but I have started to, once again understand how important it is to feel/hear/ touch/taste & see the natural world around you. Just to be within it & actually feel part of nature - is at the core of what it is to be human & in this life as we know it we often miss it - I cannot urge you enough to open yourself up to another world of being - its another level of conscioness to be embraced.
A shamanic way of being.... Personally the experiences I have shared with Natalie have been some of the most valuable, personal and special in my life. The introduction to Shamanism and my initiation through the medicine wheel were guided with compassion and strength by Natalie's deep understanding and connection to her work.
Through my experiences, my work with Natalie has allowed me to break down barriers and boundaries that were holding me back in my personal and professional life and replace them with the awareness and direction needed to move on.
There aren't many words that can describe the feeling, really I suggest you share the experience and give it a go.
I am a Homeopath & Counsellor; therefore perhaps I should assert I understand how Natalie works. But, actually I am still learning from her. I see similarities between the principles of Counselling and Shamanism; of course... Shamanism is person-centred, yet it manifests this person-centeredness of the wisdom from nature and group counsel. And what are we humans? We are social mammals of this earth. Why would we not connect with our earth, universe, other living creatures and each other? For me Shamanism acknowledged my creations of disturbance and supported me on the road to my self-actualization through the medicine wheel, intention, soul retrieval, ceremony and ritual. Having experienced all the aforementioned I felt they were beautiful although subtle (at the time); yet the seismic shifts they are capable of have left me profoundly transformed.
True healing needs time and in our modern world we expect so much so fast, but this results-driven strategy only serves to leave us depleted and partially healed. Take time for Shamanism and Homeopathy, the results come in unexpected forms, but are well worth the wait. And by the way, you really won’t have to wait that long...!
