SHAMANISM

What is Shamanism?

Shamanism is the Ancient ways of well-being by balancing and harmonizing the Body, Mind, Emotion & Spirit. Indigenous people call this the Medicine ways. It is not a religion, it is a way of life; working with Nature, God, the Elements and respecting everything as Sacred. Shamans were the Medicine people of the world; thousands of centuries ago – long before the world had Physicians and Medical Schools. The founder of Ancient Wisdom, LLC; Elizabeth, has been studying with the Q’ero Indians, (direct descendents of the Inca in the Andes Mountains of Peru);  and Master Shamans for over 13 years, to bring, harmony, well-being and balance to the lives of all… For healthy, happy people and animals all over the world.

What is The Ancient Wisdom Shaman Class?

The Ancient Wisdom Shaman Class is part of the Ancient traditions for Empowerment The Beginning of the Shamanic Classes and the assembling of the MESA (the Medicine Bundle)

This is the first in a Series of Enlightenment classes; to open your-self up to new possibilities and Heal the wounds of the Past; so the Past no longer haunts you,
To step beyond Death; removing all fears that limit you. To connect with the Ancient Ones; to remove obstacles in your way.  And become the Visionary where you are the Co-Creator of your Life. Literally making your Dreams become a reality.

During this series of classes we create a Mesa, (medicine bundle) which holds sacred objects & rocks. These rocks symbolize your life.  For example one rock could represent an event or time in your life that you needed to heal, (such as a tragedy) once the issue is healed, the rock becomes an object of power.  The mesa becomes an external representation of the self. Meditating & working with these rocks can advance you to the next level in Spiritual Growth.  The Mesa becomes a source of Power working for you. This work is sacred and must be treated with respect. You can put your problems, or issues of the past,  present or future into these stones; the Mesa creates healing for each situation. When something is brought to the Mesa, you work with it…privately… in full disclosure,  just You & the mesa… the healing begins; creating extremely powerful results. You truly become a Co-Creator of Life and can dream your world into being.

During these classes we will be working with fire ceremony – soul retrieval – power animals – crystals – chakras – light body  Illumination – rites of passage via the Inca lineage – Despacho (prayer offering) and meditation.

For the first class of the South – you will need to bring 3 stones that call to you, a cloth approx. 3 ft square, )Preferably a Mestana via the Q’ero indians from Peru
as they are our connection to this work and a way that we give back is by purchasing their textiles and products), a rattle, drinks, snack, a seat back,
blanket or pillow, or anything you need to be comfortable. Some of our work is done on the floor. Also remember to bring your full Intent & Focus.

I continue to study with God and the Masters so you will have the most current information because modalities continue to evolve.  With this new information we can incorporate the old ways and the new teachings to move our Souls to the next level in Spiritual growth. Ancient Wisdom Shamanic Classes require Responsibility, Discipline, Commitment and Respect.

What is Despacho?

Despacho is the Quechua word for Offering. It is a prayer offering to God, the Apus (mountains) or Pachamama (mother earth) in reciprocity, and thanksgiving.

It is an act of Love and a connection to the Unity we share with all. There are many different kinds of Despachos. While there are certain elements common to all Despachos – bringing harmony and balance to the earth, honoring new beginnings, or getting rid of an illness or a particular healing intention, the issue presented determines the design of the offering, the contents, and even the order in which the offerings are added. The ceremony brings participants into alignment with the group intent, gratitude, and honoring Creator. The traditional Despacho is assembled by the Shaman who is aligned with the Universe and has the Spiritual power to maintain this alignment.

In Prayer and Ceremony (Sacred Ritual) items of a symbolic nature are prayed over and assembled on a Mestana. (symbols for the elements, weather, clouds, rainbows, stars, money, etc… ) When the building of the Despacho is complete, the offering is folded, in the Mestana. The Shaman cleanses the luminous bodies of each participant removing any heavy energy, and blesses everyone. In Ceremony the offering is then buried or burned. (These heavy energies, become part of the offering. When the Despacho is buried, the earth eats these heavy energies and mulches it. When the Despacho is burned in Ceremonial fire, the fire transmutes these heavy energies into the light.) Participants are not to watch the offering as it is burning, because it is believed that the spirits come down to eat the offering & bring our prayers up to Heaven (in the smoke) to be manifested.

Why Inka with a K and sometimes Inca with a C?

Inka spelled with a K are still with us in Spirit teaching us these Shamanic ways…
through the Q’ero on earth and in Spirit helping to guide our every path.
It has been said Inca with a C are what you read about in history books…

My Q’ero Elder teacher – Don Manuel is now with us in Spirit.
He was not strict about using Inca or Inka, because
“his teachings come from an oral nature, there were no written books”.
Either way is fine, as long as the Sacred teachings are always Respected.

SESSIONS

What is a “Biofeedback” Session?

Biofeedback is a session that scans the physical body by looking at the electrical impulses, skin response and then aligning your body, mind, spirit & emotion into balance and harmony for your highest good. Biofeedback is used for Pain management, Relaxation, muscle re-education Stress reduction, and Brain Wave Relaxation Training. Basically it helps to start the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. When trained how to relax, the ‘stressors’ causing the issues may be removed with the body to have a clear path to wellness. By placing a few bands around the client’s wrists, ankles and sometimes head; those bands are hooked up to a machine which is calibrated to measure skin response, energy, various impulses in the body and how they react. Once the imbalance is identified, there are several programs such as electromagnetic waves, frequency and vibration to help balance the energy into complete wellness and harmony.

What is “Holistic Health”?

Holistic Health is harmony and balance of energy – in all aspects of self – body, mind, spirit, soul and emotions. Each of us is born with a unique energy that makes us who we are and determines our strengths and weaknesses. A state of un-balance can show itself in many ways, such as Stress, Depression, mood-swings, anger, Fatigue etc… A holistic session is the quickest way to achieve Balance.

What is a Holistic Session?

A Holistic session is a private session in a relaxed atmosphere to Balance the Energy of the client. When illness occurs it is because the energy system is out of balance. Under the Guidance of God, Ancient Wisdom, LLC incorporates a blend of Shamanism, Crystals, Tibetan Wisdom, Hypnotherapy, NLP, Reiki, Chakra Balancing, Reflexology, Theta Technique, Color Therapy, Soul Retrieval, Light-Life Rings, Vibrational Tuning, Extraction, Heavy Energy Removal, Illumination and contact with Ascended Masters, Saints and Guides. We work on the body’s energetic system to bring about Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual harmony.

A Holistic Session is given remotely (via telephone), or in a private setting with the client fully clothed. We are not medical doctors, nutritionists or counselors of any type.

These sessions are not meant to replace conventional medical care. However, they will not interfere as they may complement by promoting Wellness; improving circulation of energy, blood, lymph and reducing stress. These holistic techniques work on many levels and have been known to revitalize the Body, Mind, Emotion and Spirit. Holistic Sessions have been known to improve certain conditions by helping the client to become more in touch with their inner wisdom and the laws of nature which facilitate the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. Because we are more than our physical body and the Soul is Energy that never ceases to exist…
All sessions can be done remotely (via telephone) as this work transcends all time and space for wellness to occur.

What is Ear Coning or Candling?

Ear Coning is an ancient method of wellbeing originated in Egypt. In a relaxed, atmosphere, the client lies on a massage table comfortably while the certified practitioner inserts an ear candle gently on the edge of the outer ear. By lighting one end, the smoke gently forces the candle to act like a chimney effect, pulling up debris, parasites, and wax out of the ear. The herbs in the candle produce a relaxed feeling, spiritual opening & emotional clearing. They also have been known to provide Aura cleansing, realignment as well as sharpening of mental focusing, vision, hearing, smell, taste and color perception. They also act as a catalyst to clear out debris from nerve endings allowing for clear Vibrational flow to corresponding areas of Mind, Body & Spirit. Coning is also known for detoxification of sinus and lymph systems. A session lasts anywhere from 40 to 60 minutes.

Some of the benefits you may experience from Ear Coning: Removal of excess Ear Wax; Relief from Itchy Ear; Relief from Ear Infections; Removal of
Fluid in Ear; Removal of Candida (Yeast); Helpful with some Hearing Loss; Beneficial for Tinnitus (Ringing in the ears); Improved Balance & Equilibrium;
Auric Cleansing; Realignment of Subtle Energy Flow (Chi); Detoxification of Sinus and Lymph Systems; Sharpening of Mental Functioning and Keener Senses;
Release of Head Congestion due to Sinusitis, Allergies, Common Cold & Flu

Do you have Long Distance sessions?

YES ! Holistic sessions are just as powerful long distant. You can relax in the comfort of your own home while participating in a phone session.
You do not have to be here in person for healing to take place.

QHHT

What is Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy?

Elizabeth was trained directly by the late Dolores Cannon in QHHT. 
Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (QHHT) involves inducing an individual to the Somnambulistic state of trance through visualization. A state which under ordinary circumstances is experienced only twice daily: the moment just before you become consciously awake and the moment just before you drift off and fall asleep.  in this Somnambulistic state Dolores discover that any individual can gain access to experiences of Past Lives they have lived. It was also exploring with clients in this state that she discovered an infinitely knowledgeable and powerful aspect of each individual that can be contacted and communicated with. This part of ourselves, is always present with us and exists just below the surface of our conscious mind, so she appropriately chose to label it The Subconscious. The Subconscious is what gives  QHHT technique access to past lives and performs instantaneous healings when appropriate. Over her 45-year career, her technique has proven to be effective on thousands of people all over the world regardless of their Age, Gender, Personality, Physical Symptoms, Religious Beliefs or Cultural Backgrounds. Supplementing the vast body of work Elizabeth has produced results through Dolores’ QHHT in that we have all lived multiple Other Lives and we all have a Subconscious which contains the answers to any question we may have about ourselves or the life we are living.   Subconscious/ Super Conscious/ inner wisdom/ Higher Self is all the same…
It’s our Soul. These sessions are typically 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours long.

For more detail see our website: www.QHHT-Elizabeth.com

What is Past Life Regression?

Past Life Regression is the first component of Dolores’ QHHT technique and involves the individual being regressed and guided through an appropriate past life from the first scene they view, throughout the various periods of the life and eventually through to the death scene. The Subconscious will select what past life to show the individual and they will be guided through it by the QHHT practitioner conducting the session. The past life the Subconscious chooses to show an individual is always relevant to the current life the individual is living now and it is not uncommon for multiple Past Lives to be shown during a single session. The QHHT practitioner will navigate an individual through a Past Life using a series of questions to help determine the time period and social setting of the life. Details of the Past life and the lessons learned during that lifetime may help solve issues in this lifetime.

General

Why do you charge Money for Holistic sessions?

Many years ago the Community took care of the Shaman Medicine Man or Woman; (we will use the masculine to explain here), they housed him, clothed him & provided for his ever need. There was always some form of equal reciprocity for the services provided. Some would bring a chicken, or food for the family. In the United States today, the acceptable form of reciprocity is (money) US Dollars. We use money in reciprocity for receiving goods or services. The circle of reciprocity must be complete for the energy exchange to be Karma free. There should always be a give and take. When someone gives or takes too little or too much, they will be out of balance. The circle of Reciprocity must be balanced
for healing to occur. Our Healing work will never be denied. If you can not afford our Holistic Session; and are having an urgent/crisis, please speak to us about this, we will be happy to work with you.

What is Hair Analysis?

Hair Analysis is where we send a clipping of your hair to the Lab for testing. Trace Elements Lab in Texas will send back a report that consists of any toxic elements
and normal elements in your system for you to take with you to your Doctor for specific Health guidance. Hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA), is an analytical test
which measures the mineral content of the hair. The sampled hair, obtained by cutting the first inch and one-half of growth closest to the scalp, is prepared in a licensed clinical laboratory through a series of chemical and high temperature digestive procedures. Testing is then performed using highly sophisticated detection
equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results.

Why use the hair analysis? Why not use the blood?

Hair is ideal tissue for sampling and testing. First, it can be cut easily and painlessly and can be sent to the lab without special handling requirements. Second, clinical results have shown that a properly obtained sample can give an indication of mineral status and toxic metal accumulation following long term or even acute exposure. A HTMA reveals a unique metabolic world: intracellular activity, which cannot be seen through most other tests. This provides a blueprint of the biochemistry occurring during the period of hair growth and development.

Where can I purchase the Nitchi Tai Tai song that we sing at fire ceremony?

Nitchi Tai Tai was composed by Elliot Diamond, send him an email & tell him I sent you… here is his website: www.midashealth.com

There is much talk about the Predictions of fear and negativity coming; What can we do?

Yes, there has been much discussion of the Earth Changes to come, “Hurricanes, Tsunami’s, as well as many statements being made of “bank colapse”,
“forced vaccine flu shots”, “people will die from lack of nutrition from GMO (genetically modified foods)”, and the “Grid frying” (nothing electronic will work).  These “fears” and more have been flying around the world. The movies add to these fears. Remember from the enemy’s point of view: when the people
are in fear, they are easier to control. Do not get locked into fear. Question everything. Search for Truth in all that you do.

The most important thing we can do as Light-workers is to Prepare and Pray. Everyone should have at least 30 days of food and water per person and per animal stored (Don’t forget your pets). Just in case. We all live in a world where anything can happen. My mother prepared for “hurricane season”. This was a natural thing. We have gotten away from preparing, and it should be reinstated into our lives “just in case”.

Prepare; Then live your life to the fullest. If we get locked into FEAR and WORRY about what will happen, then we are not living. Dark forces FEED on FEAR!!!
Do not give them the opportunity – remove all fear from yourself. Prepare as best you can, then have fun. Some of the best books out there are “Dare to Prepare” by
Holly Drennan Deyo and “When Technology Fails” by Matthew Stein. They even teach you how to make your own soap. These authors have done the hard work to give us the shortcuts and keep it inexpensive. It can be fun to get back to nature & learn how to take care of ourselves without modern technology.
If you wish to discuss this further with me, give me a call. Elizabeth
