In the purest sense of the word, illumination means "lighting something up." When a client asks for an Illumination, they are basically asking a shaman to shed light on a particular issue or concern in order to bring healing to One's soul.  

The purpose of  a shamanic illumination is to accomplish 4 things:
1. To burn up the sludge & deposits adhering to the walls of the chakras.  This promotes longevity and strengthens the immune system.
2. To combust the toxic energy around malignant physical and emotional 'imprints'. This is the fuel the 'imprint' uses to express itself.

3. To scour clean the 'imprints' in the luminous energy field or light body. When 'imprints' are removed, you can readily release negative emotions and behaviors. The power of the immune system is unleashed and physical
healing is accelerated.

4. To bring about healing at the source, the level of the 'imprint'.

It's important to note that years of therapy cannot clear an 'imprint'. Some people find it difficult to overcome a trauma while others rise above great trauma. The difference is being able to heal in the midst of the trauma. When we discover compassion and forgiveness in the midst of pain, no residual energies will remain.

Psychologists believe once you're cognizant of complexes and drives you become free of their noxious influence. Shamans believe the intellectual aspect barely scratches the surface. As a matter of fact, shamans love to hear about their client's stories, but we want them to know they are NOT their story. To change that we need to access the 'imprint'

During an illumination a shaman will typically scan the Light Body for crystallized and liquid energies.  Once detected, the shaman utilizes his energy tools to remove them and to cauterize the affected area. More importantly the shaman will work with the client to change their affinity toward this energy so it will not return.  

Crystallized Energy is 'stationary' or 'stagnant' energy which has typically manifested itself over time.   These 'imprints' can present themselves anywhere within the Light Body and usually do so in various forms. Many instances where crystallized energy is extracted, the client reported circumstances involving the affected area.  In other cases, the energy is just there and the conscious mind is unaware of how it settled in.  When an illumination or extraction is performed, the healing is instantaneous, the understanding typically comes later.

Liquid Energy is 'moving' or 'animated' energy which embeds in the central nervous system after entering the light body from one of the chakras. They are fluid and move around the body. They are very parasitic in nature, causing anxiety, depression, addictions, mood swings and other symptoms. 'Energy Vampires' is a good way to describe liquid energy.  

Intrusive Entities: Some liquid energies can be so powerful they seem to have a personality. When a person who is spiritually open becomes emotionally unbalanced, they are easy targets for parasitic intrusive entities. No amount of talk therapy is effective. These energies must be extracted!   

A cord is an energetic link that connects the client to a person, place or thing. It is an unhealthy dynamic and it keeps a person from moving forward in a healthy and happy way. A cord can influence, confuse or drain a person if left hanging for too long. A shaman will typically discuss the pro's and con's of cutting a cord with a client as this type of energetic connection can be quite powerful and the adjustment unsettling. Cord cutting is an intervention and being able to remove the hooks of this heavy energy is critical. Cord Removals can be performed simultaneously with an Illumination/Extraction or independently.

The Soul is our vital essence. Soul loss is the result of traumas. When something is too traumatic for us a piece of our Soul breaks off and leaves so we won't feel the full impact of the event. That Soul piece is held in the Earth until it can be retrieved.  When this happens we give away some of our power and we create a void for something else to move in. When we give away our power, we can become ill because the Universe cannot stand a void. So it fills it--and what often fills it is illness or disease.  

In shamanism, one of the major causes of illness is Soul loss. As a result, Soul loss can make a person feel numb or dispirited, not feel present...etc. Psychotherapy works only for the parts of us that are 'home.' Therefore a person can spend years in counseling and psychotherapy and never reach, nor change the real issue.

At Ancient Rose, we specialize in Soul Retrievals as this is our most requested service.  If you or a loved one requires a Soul Retrieval, give us a call.  

When a person becomes heavily stuck in their story there is a tendency to stop dreaming or seeing the potentials of the times to come.  When that happens the emotional body suffers and if left unchecked can lead to suffering, pain, misery, lack and ultimately physical disease.  A Destiny Retrievals includes a Soul Retrieval except the journey begins in the future. That information and wisdom is brought back to the Past so the person can begin the healing process in the now. Perhaps a person has lost sight of what "HAPPINESS" looks like or has forgotten what Lightness feels like.  When a shaman journeys into the time to come, he/she is looking at the strongest potentials of what a person's life will look like once some or all of the heaviness from the past has been ameliorated.  

espacho describes the Andean practice of making offerings to the mountains (Apus), Mother Earth (Pachamama), and other spirits of nature in reciprocity, reverence, and thanksgiving. A despacho is an act of love and a reminder of the connections we share with all beings, elements, spirits, and sacred places. At the deepest level, it is an opportunity to enter into the essential unity of all things, the living energy of the universe.

A Despacho ceremony brings participants into alignment with their own personal intention, a group intention, and gratitude to the earth, which supports us in all our endeavors. It also brings participants into internal alignment with the 'three bands':  physical (Yankay), feeling and heart (Munay), and spirit, or energetic wisdom (Yachay). Finally, the despacho harmonizes the community through the sharing of leaves and gifts, all of which strengthen the luminous fibers that connect us all.
At Ancient Rose we are all about ceremony, and are happy to honor whatever your needs may be through Despacho.

"The prophecies of the ancient Americas speak about this time as a period of great transformation, a time to make an extraordinary difference in the world. They foretell of a new human appearing on the planet - a person of wisdom and power who lives free of fear and abides in their eternal nature, accepting stewardship for all creation.
