Awakening Your Inner Shaman: 7 Confirming Signs

Awakening Your Inner Shaman

Are you searching for a deeper meaning or purpose in life? The following article talks about how awakening your inner shaman can be a turning point in your journey. Should you awaken the inner shaman?

Shamans are medicine men or women who use their connection with nature and the spirit world in order to heal and awaken others. Shamans journey into the Spirit world using drums, herbs, and crystals and retrieve psychically guided information about a soul from their spirit guides, gods, and ancestors.

They also have the ability to channel other spirits, gods, and deities and are powerful creators of the world around them. They also rely on their connection with Mother Earth in order to discover healing plants and herbs.

Shamans are usually initiated after experiencing some sort of death and rebirth process. This death and rebirth process can be physical, emotional, or energetic and is often an indicator that the soul is ready to step into the role of being a Shaman.

In many ways, Shamans are energy healers that also have the gift of mediumship and herbalism, however, traditionally their knowledge is obtained from the spirit world and not a textbook.

In fact, the word Shaman translates to “he or she who knows.” Shamanism has evolved through many cultures and is similar to the practice of witch doctors, energy healers, and alternative medicine practitioners.

But because this type of healing has been condemned for so long and witches were burnt at the stake, a once common practice has now become an “alternative” and largely forgotten.

It is believed that once you have been initiated as a Shaman in one life you are destined to come back and impart some of your knowledge in subsequent lives, thus awakening your inner shaman.

In a previous life you may have also been working as an apprentice or building up to your initiation as a Shaman and it may be part of your calling in this life to finally step into your role.

If any of this resonates with you, here are 7 more signs that your inner shaman may be awakening:

These signs confirm that you are awakening your inner shaman.

Awakening Your Inner Shaman: 7 Confirming Signs

1. You Have Recovered, Almost Miraculously From A Serious Or Rare Disease, Experienced Psychosis Or Have Been Struck By Lightning.

They may sound random, but these experiences have all been linked to the call of the shaman or awakening your inner shaman. It is believed that in order to be a Shaman you must experience a complete ‘death and rebirth’ of your soul and often this can manifest as a temporary illness of some kind.

During this experience, some people report journeying into the spirit world and being implanted with some sort of crystal or knowledge about their role as a Shaman before they return back to Earth.

2. You Have A Strong Connection With Nature And Animals.

Shamans have a special relationship with the world of nature and animals and use them as guides or messengers. If you find yourself receiving messages from plants or animals, or you are sensitive to nature and your environment this may very well be a sign of your inner shaman awakening.

3. You Gravitate Towards Herbalism Or Foods For Healing And You Instinctually Know What You Need To Use.

Using the wisdom from the spirits, Shamans are able to blend natural herbal concoctions in order to heal both the energetic and physical body. Interestingly, a lot of the herbs used in traditional Shamanism for healing have now been backed up by science.

If you find yourself naturally gravitating toward the kitchen and the herb garden in order to heal any ailments, this may be a sign of a past connection with the world of Shamanism and you awakening your inner shaman.

Shamans have the ability to travel into different dimensions and retrieve information about your soul’s past, future and present. If you hold the gift of Shamanism, you may find that you astral travel while asleep or that you have strange dreams about meeting alien-like or spirit beings.

5. You Have Psychic Abilities, Receive Premonitions Or Have The Gift Of Mediumship.

Because Shamans work so closely with the Spirit world they often possess gifts of mediumship and clairvoyance. As a Shaman-reborn it is likely that you would have carried these gifts over into this life as well.
