WHAT TO EXPECT IN A HEALING SESSION WITH MARIANNA?
Before arriving, you are encouraged to spend some time thinking about
what issues you would like to focus on. It does not need to be anything
specific, however if you are open and willing and ready to let go of old
patterns and energy that do not serve you, it will strengthen the session,
allowing energy to move from the subconscious to the conscious level for it to be released.

Marianna will then start by discussing and explaining her Shamanic process and
answers your questions. After learning a bit about what brought you to
her practice you decide together what issues are in the need of
After the initial discussion, you will lie comfortably on your back, fully
clothed and often covered with a sheet or blanket (as your energy
shifts, body temperature can as well).
This is a time for you to relax and let go of interferences with your
connection to your true essence, your authentic self. The Illumination
is a gentle guided clearing process. Marianna will open the four
directions and a sacred space to work together safely and timelessly.
You will select one of Marianna’s healing stones (Kuyas). This stone will
assist you in clearing energy that does not serve you. Marianna will
assess your Chakras, the energy centers, to determine which may be
compromised or which may be negatively imprinting your Luminous
Energy Field. She will gently hold specific energy points on the back of
your head while you help work on moving energy through breath.
The Illumination is the time honored foundation for Shamanic healing
that clears the energy imprints in the Luminous Energy Field
(LEF) . Working with the seven major Chakras this process helps open
and restore the Luminous Energy Field by breaking up the energy
associated with repeated negative cyclical patterns. Our LEF is bound
to our physical matter at the Chakras – our energy centers. Their
function is to spin and draw Prana (or energy) to keep the spiritual,
mental, emotional and physical health of the human in balance. This
Energy healing technique helps transform heavy energies into light, and
emotional wounds and issues into sources of power and
knowledge. The focus is to move that energy out of the body using
breath work, visualization and intention. Often during an illumination,
certain buried truths are brought to awareness, enabling a clarity of life
events or choices.
Marianna focuses on extracting undesired energies,
allowing a break from limiting behaviors and beliefs that cause suffering.
A Chakra cleanse and resetting removes heavy dense energies, (often
repressed emotions), that interrupt the free flow of expression and
experience. This “huacha” (heavy energy) is cleared from the involved
chakra and is “illuminated” by divine light and new energy allowing the
release that is needed to move forward in the present.
It is important to note that the Shamanic approach does not “cure”
illness but instead helps you “heal” on all four levels; Physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual.
At the end of the session, Marianna may share information that she
received with you. She may discuss “homework” or lifestyle changes
that may help to support your healing process. Marianna will send you
an e-mail one to three days after the session with any additional notes,
resources discussed and suggested follow up work. She encourages
people to contact her within a week or two to discuss any effects
experienced and to determine if additional work needs to be done.
When scheduling your appointment, it is suggested to allow enough
time afterwards for yourself to process and integrate your
experience. It is best not to have to rush off back to work, or an
appointment but instead to take some time for yourself, in nature or a
place of calm to journal or process.
After the healing session with Marianna, she will often make
recommendations on how you can integrate the energetic changes you
made in your session. Her hope is to inspire you to pursue your healing
journey so the energy shifts can continue and evolve in a realistic
way. Marianna's suggestions may be exercises, knowledge or tools for
your own interpretation.
The Difference between Curing and Healing....
“Shamans understand the difference between healing and curing ...Curing is the
business of medicine. Healing is the business of the shaman.
Curing consists of treating disease and eliminating symptoms. We all know people
who have received cures but have not experienced healing. When this happens,
the symptoms generally return.
Healing addresses the cause of the disease (which is generally a trauma), and the
resulting toxic emotions that separate the person from his or her joy and health.
To shamans, the cause of the disease is due to the imprints of trauma stored in
the Light Body. It is a person’s Luminous Energetic Field that registers “scratch
marks” of trauma that are repeatedly triggered. Self healing happens when we
clear these marks from the luminous matrix that envelops and informs our lives.
While curing eliminates symptoms, healing transforms your life, and often,
though not always, produces a physical cure. While healing, we measure success
by increased well-being, a sense of newfound peace and empowerment, and a
feeling of communion with all life. It's transformative experience is reflected in
every aspect of life – relationships, diet, job, marriage, how you relate to your
children as well as how you experience wellness and illness.
Shamanic healing practices focus on enhancing the body’s own healing response
and accessing that ongoing state of well-being and perfect health”.
