Shamanic journeying is a practice that involves entering an altered state of consciousness for the purpose of spiritual exploration, personal growth, and healing. This practice is often associated with shamanic traditions from around the world, but it can also be used by anyone who is interested in exploring their inner world.
Shamanic journeying typically involves the use of a drum or other percussive instrument to induce a trance state. The journeyer then visualizes a sacred space or landscape, and begins to explore this space in order to connect with their own inner wisdom, spirit guides, or other sources of guidance and inspiration.
During a shamanic journey, the journeyer may encounter a variety of experiences, including meeting animal or spirit guides, receiving healing or guidance from ancestors, or experiencing a sense of deep connection with the natural world. These experiences can be deeply transformative and can provide insight, healing, and a sense of purpose and direction in life.
