Shamanic Healing & Spiritual Mentoring

Why should you consider energy clearing for your home or business?2018-06-21T17:29:54+00:00

A house (or an office or a store) is like a sponge. Whatever transpires in your environment is absorbed into the walls, furniture, carpet, ceiling, and objects. Frequently, these negative energies accumulate in the corners and tucked away places. Energy debris can be a result of negative emotions, thoughts, occurrences, and stress that you (your family, your co-workers) have experienced in your space. If you had a negative event happen recently or a lot of sadness or fear, there is a high chance that your space will have absorbed some of that energy. At times — in particular for older houses or houses (and offices) that have been occupied by other people before you — those energies can have accumulated over time and be connected to tragic events that you have no idea about. Without talking about the land itself, that can carry energy from generations before us.

What are the key moments when you might consider energy clearing for your home (or business)?2018-06-21T17:29:25+00:00

At any point a space energy clearing is useful. But some moments are particularly crucial: When moving into a new space (preferably before you move in your own belongings); when trying to sell a house; after a big transition for the household or business; anytime you desire fresh energy for a new project or a new beginning; in case of a home, if you or your children don’t sleep well, or have numerous nightmares; if you suspect the presence of a ghost or other malevolent energy in your home, or if things just don’t feel “right.” If you wonder if this could help your situation, contact me and I will be happy to advise.

What happens during a space energy clearing?2018-06-21T17:28:35+00:00

Things may vary depending on the situation but here is the overall process that I generally follow:

  1. I ask if there are particular concerns or areas of the property that I need to be aware of;
  2. I first build a strong protection around the house, calling the energies, and stabilizing the whole;
  3. Then, I start start with the surroundings (the land, the garden, at times the neighborhood, etc.). I am very discrete and low key in the way I work, so your neighbors won’t be worried, but I need to clear what’s around first.
  4. Then I start clearing the outside of the house or building, going around very systematically, as much as I can. If I can’t go around, I find alternatives. I won’t start clearing inside a house before the outside is completely clear.
  5. Then, I do the inside. I assess and clear very methodically every single room, office or space. And I won’t leave until everything is absolutely clear.
  6. During that process, I may receive information about what’s going on and what might be needed so that you sell your house. At times, I need to do a quick journey to get more information. I may also give some feedback / advice on what to do in the space to help (to give you examples: in two recent cases of houses having just be bought, I alerted the new owners to structural issues that they did not know about and that saved them a lot of money and troubles down the road; but it can be anything).
  7. I always leave the client with very concrete recommendations. When the occupants of a house or an office staff are present, the whole process can easily transform into a collective healing process. But participation is always optional. I can also do the work on my own.
Why would I seek a spiritual mentor?2018-06-01T10:01:44+00:00

There are as many personal reasons for seeking spiritual mentoring as there are people seeking it. Typically, you may look for a spiritual mentor to get ongoing support on your path, because you feel lost or stuck and need someone to be on your team, someone to serve as your personal growth partner. You may feel isolated or not knowing where to start to shift your life and answer your true soul purpose or even understanding what it is. You have a sense that you have some personal work you need to do but don’t know where to start or how. You want someone to be accountable to so that you make sure that you actually make the changes that you want in your life…

What is the difference between a life coach and a spiritual guide?2018-06-01T10:02:07+00:00

This depends on how a person works. As a mentor, I know that I can’t have a preconceived agenda, curriculum or end goal in mind. I have to meet my clients exactly where they are along the way. They always remain the one in charge of the process. As a spiritual mentor, I use a vast range of tools that integrate body, mind and spirit. I never work only at one level. I make sure that I remain fully present, centered and connected with Spirits in order to tune in to what the mentoree needs exactly in each session, each moment.

What kind of tools do you use during the mentoring program?2018-06-01T10:02:00+00:00

I never mentor two people the same way. I will meet you exactly where you are, how you are feeling and what you need to focus on at the time. And this will more likely evolve along the weeks and months that we work together.

I draw upon ancient wisdom that can be found in all religious and spiritual traditions and teachings, and combine them with modern consciousness and psychological research. On that basis, I will strive to find the tools, exercises and rituals that are going to support you at best – meeting their specific needs and characteristics. During a session, we may use meditation, dream work, journeying, visualizations, art craft, movements… depending on what resonates most with you and what might be of best support.

What are the most important qualities to seek in a spiritual mentor?2018-06-01T10:01:54+00:00

For me the most important qualities for a spiritual mentor are respect, presence and loving compassion. To guide another person, I must fully respect the path they are taking, with complete integrity. I am there to hold space for another person, listening fully to their heart and soul, without any judgment. The mentoree needs to know and trust that I am on their side, no matter what, and that I am there to fully support their dream, and their path, no matter what it is and what the difficulties are. I am fully there for each person and never hesitate to walk the extra mile if it serves my client. In my book, each person is a star and deserves the same attention and support on my side. I will always be there for you.

What will I learn when I undertake a spiritual mentorship?2018-06-01T10:01:49+00:00

You will see aspects of yourself and discover inner resources that you are not aware of and you will go to places within your soul that you have not yet imagined. Ultimately, you might reinvent yourself and your story and think about yourself differently. No matter what you are looking for, I will guide you through a deep and beautiful process. There will be work but there will be many rewards as well, not only at the end but along the way.

What is a Shamanic Healer?2018-06-01T09:58:52+00:00

An increasing number of individuals go to a shaman to support their physical, emotional and spiritual well being. Although, in the United States, shamanism tends to be more readily associated with Native American traditions, shamanic healers have been found in virtually all cultures and throughout the ages. The attire and customs may vary from culture to culture, community to community, but the essence of what shamans do is remarkably similar: they work as intermediaries between the world of Spirits and our mundane reality to support positive change.

What happens in a shamanic healing session?2018-06-01T09:58:52+00:00

The core of the work happens while the shaman journeys to the spiritual world to gain insights about a particular situation and support healing. A session also generally includes hands-on healing to help integrate the effects of the journey, release blockages and increase the body’s innate healing ability.

Why would I need or want a shamanic healing?2018-06-01T09:58:52+00:00

Clients come for a shamanic healing with a wide range of demands: issues with their job, finance, sentimental or family life, loss of a dear one, all types of health issues (in particular long term illnesses), past emotional and physical traumas for which no cure seems to be helping, etc. They may feel depressed, hopeless, stuck in their life; they may struggle with anxiety, fears and insomnia. Most people come to a shaman with a long list of issues they want to work on.

Can a shaman help overcome a physical or emotional trauma2018-06-01T09:58:52+00:00

A shaman can help a person heal from all types of physical and emotional traumas where conventional approaches may have failed. Shamanic healing is an adjunct to, not a substitute for, conventional medical or psychological services. When doctors and other medical practitioners refer patients to a shaman, they know that it will help them pass a stuck point in a therapy process, better integrate a treatment or release an energetic or emotional block that is preventing the body from healing. In other words, shamanic healing helps address dimensions of trauma that the person may be unaware of or that would take much more time for conventional approaches to uncover. In the past few years, neuroscience research has made substantial progress in showing the benefits of meditation and other types of mind-body practices in supporting mental and physical healing.

What is so powerful in a shamanic healing?2018-06-01T09:58:52+00:00

Shamanism works at a level from which we are often dissociated in our modern busy lives. It helps reconnect the different dimensions of a human being. The shaman creates a safe and sacred container for the client to develop a state of relaxation and radical presence in which healing energies can be brought to your whole being, bypassing most usual resistances, facilitating a healing you may have stopped believing in.

Which benefit can you expect from a shamanic session?2018-06-01T09:58:52+00:00

At the end of a session, you will have gained invaluable insights about the different dimensions of your situation, including the physical but also emotional and symbolic dimensions that might not have been immediately clear or had remained unconscious and would have taken much more time to get unraveled through more traditional approaches. You will feel peaceful and hopeful, unusually clear in your mind and body. More importantly, most clients also report immediate shifts in the situation they wanted to address. The effects of the healing will continue to unfold as the days past.

Do you do soul retrievals?2018-06-01T09:58:52+00:00

Soul-retrieval techniques are one of the classic methods a shaman may use. Anyone who has had a trauma, from a shamanic point of view, may have had some loss of their spiritual essence / energy, and the shaman may have to retrieve it so that the person can feel whole again. Another major technique in shamanic healing work is known as extraction. Extraction involves removing a spiritual intrusion. The shaman can also work as a ‘psychopomp’ to help  the deceased in their transition. Those are all ‘techniques’, among others, that the shaman may need to use and know how to practice. However, I personally never presume what a person needs, for instance that a person would have ‘lost’ her soul (or part of it). The way I work, I agree with clients about the intention(s) for the journey and what the person wants to ask; I always add to the intention that the person receive exactly what they need at this point of their life. Once the intention has been formulated aloud and released, I make sure that I get out of the way, in order to allow Spirits to do the work. In the journey space, I follow what Spirits show me to do, not what I may think the person needs, and usually there is a lot, and more often than not it leads me to places and situations that I could never have thought of myself. Each person, each story is unique, and this is what I love about this work: to respond to that uniqueness and serve it at best.

Do you do power animal retrieval?2018-06-01T09:58:53+00:00

Power animal retrieval is another shamanic method used to connect someone with helping spirits that may show themselves in the form of an animal. Animal spirits offer power, protection, and support. Each of them hold a specific type of energy. However, it is also important to understand that power animals are only one of many appearances spirit guides may take, and at times it is not a form that resonate with someone cosmology, culture or sense of being. It is also frequent for individuals to have more than one animal spirit (or spirit guide for that matter), and for their appearance to shift according to the type of energy, guidance and protection that one needs at the time. The relationship with one’s spirit guides is a very personal, intimate and sacred endeavor. Therefore, as for anything I do as a shaman, my role is not impose on someone’s own perception or vision but to facilitate their connection, help them feel that energy, recognize it, work with it, and trust it, the way it feels right to them, even if they don’t have words for it yet.

Will I receive any type of report after the session?2018-06-01T09:58:53+00:00

Yes, in the days following your session, you will receive a report containing the entire notes from the journey as well as personalized recommendations and suggestions to support you fully integrate the benefits from the journey.

Is there any follow up treatment suggested?2018-06-01T09:58:53+00:00

Immediate follow-up sessions are not always necessary. It varies from person to person. Some people may need to work with the shaman over a few months to consolidate the results from the initial session. A conscientious shaman will always check with a client in the weeks following the session to discuss how things are enfolding for them and provide a follow-up, if needed and desired, making sure that the person has received the support that they needed at that specific moment of their life.

How often should I get a shamanic healing?2018-06-01T09:58:53+00:00

Most individuals find it useful to come back for a shamanic journey every few months or once a year.

Is shamanism associated with some sort of religion practice?2018-06-01T09:58:53+00:00

Shamanism is not a religion, nor does it interfere with any religion. Individuals’ beliefs are always fully respected. Though shamanic healing works at the level of the soul, no belief is required on the client’s part, no need to understand all of it, just an open attitude. The shaman’s ethic is to respect your boundaries and will. A shamanic healing is often a life changing experience but it is entirely yours; you remain the one in charge.

My experience with Béatrice has been truly miraculous and I am so grateful.  Indeed, as she says, the miracle can be continued every single day of my life!

For me, it is the closest that I have ever been to experiencing a miracle in my life. I don’t know what Béatrice did – or how she did it – but I do know with absolute certainty that she healed me.

The Art of Setting Intention(s): How to Effectively Co-Create with the UniverseThe Art of Setting Intention(s): How to Effectively Co-Create with the Universe Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. - George Bernard Shaw As the world around us is going through huge transitions, so are many of us. Big or small, a transition presents a whole set of challenges, one of them being how to “manifest” what we really want and how to really trust that it is happening. Even if you do not feel yourself as being in transition right now, the constant chaos of today’s world might create some anxiety or even a sense of paralysis. If that is the case, don’t worry: you are not alone. I see it in the healing room every day and I witness it around me on a daily basis. In both cases, one important antidote is to be able to re-enter a space and mode of co-creating with the Universe. This true partnership is the best remedy I know against feeling anxious, stuck, and fearful of the future. And it starts with a huge component: the art of setting intention(s). Neuroscience research helps understand why and how this antidote works. Setting an intention stimulates your frontal lobes, one of the key centers of conscious decision-making and motivation. It’s also where imagination and creativity take place. Frontal lobe stimulation is then going to limit emotional volatility generated by the limbic regions of the brain, allowing you to experience less neurological stress, anxiety, frustration, confusion, doubt, fear and uncertainty. In other words, intentionality is also a powerful way to actually regulate your… Read More
