Here is a brief overview of shamanic journeying:
Shamanism is the oldest known spiritual practice in the world and is still practiced by indigenous people on every continent today, including Native Americans. While there are many different rituals, one commonality is that the shaman acts as a catalyst between this world and the spirit realm.
During a shamanic journey, a shaman/practitioner uses a visionary process to travel to the spirit realm to request healings, receive divine messages, help guide lost souls home (psychopomp) and commune with nature/universe.
In the spirit realm, a shaman interacts with spirit guides, ancestors, angels, and enlightened beings.
Power animals act as protectors and guides for the shaman, and can be a part of the shaman’s journeys for many lifetimes or brief periods during which their archetype power is needed.
The spirit realm has three “worlds”: the lower, middle and upper. None of the realms are better than the others; they simply offer different experiences that are appropriate for different circumstances.
