Ready to get grounded and recharge? Allow us to introduce you to Julie Ann Travis. We are such fans of her shamanic energy healing work that we decided to co-host a 3-part series called Space & Beauty.
Curious to know more? Cool, we thought so.
A: What exactly is a shamanic practitioner?
JT: Shamanism is the oldest form of spirituality on the planet, dating back over 40,000 years! A shamanic practitioner is someone with works with spiritual aspects of an illness or imbalance. According to the Siberian Tungus tribe, the word Shaman means: the one who sees in the dark.
A: What are some of the issues clients seek your help with?
JT: Many things! To name a few: Chronic illness (physical, mental, emotional), PTSD, releasing toxic patterns, empowerment, or simply seeking clarity on their life path. Basically, if there is something bothering you, there is a spiritual root cause.
A: Tell us a little bit about what we could expect in a session with you.
JT: All sessions could include one or more of the following:
Illumination: clearing and balancing the chakra
Extraction: removing crystallized or fluid energies from the energy field
Soul Retrieval: recovering essential lost part of one’s soul that have fled during past traumatic events
Ceremony and Rite of Passage
Space and Land Clearings
A: Tell us about your path to this work.
My path of Shamanic Practitioner began at a very early age; I have known since the age of four that I was brought here to be of service. I share a similar path of many shamans: the wounded healer's journey. Most of my late teens and twenties were full of chronic illness and deep depression. With the help of the beloved Q’ero shamans, I was able to step in and accept my calling to service during a vacation turned spiritual pilgrimage in Peru.
A: And finally, what bird would you be and why?
JT: I’d be a Robin. Since they are always in groups, it reminds me to connect with my local community. They don’t need to migrate and can make their home here year-round. Also, they lay the most gorgeous powder-blue eggs.
