LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism’s founder Jan Engels-Smith

interviewed Margie McMahan a shamanic practitioner who branched out and blends her shamanic, reiki skills with Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique developed by Dolores Cannon  www.margiemcmahan.com

Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) is a form of Past Life Regression that helps people find answers to question via regression.  The client connects directly with their higher self for healing of these issues. In core shamanism the practitioner is journeying to find the answers for the client. In QHHT the practitioner is guiding the client to help find their own answers.  Clients discover lessons, gifts and reasons why things happened as they did.  This method is powerful, empowering and healing.  When awareness floods the conscious mind the illusion of problem is often extinguished. A lightness, clearing and filling happens for the client.  Margie also incorporates soul retrieval, extraction and other healing modalities into her sessions.  A fabulous marriage of shamanism and QHHT for a complete healing experience.  To book a session with Margie  margie.mcmahan@gmail.com

LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism’s founder Jan Engels-Smith answers questions from Tara Grant. Tara is acting as a liaison for the public posing common questions and concerns in the field of shamanism and energy medicine.

Jan and Tara discuss:

  • Past lives or other lives
  • Shamanic perspective on time
  • Shapeshifting
  • You are the universe
  • Can knowing about other lifetimes help you with your health in this lifetime?
  • What are examples of case studies where you healed another lifetime to have health in this one.
  • How the ego brings forth old wounds and creates stories around them
  • Prime Video film Inner World Outer World which discusses:

There is one vibratory field that connects all things. It has been called Akasha, Logos, the primordial OM, the music of the spheres, the Higgs field, dark energy, and a thousand other names throughout history. The vibratory field is at the root of all true spiritual experience and scientific investigation. It is the same field of energy that saints, Buddhas, yogis, mystics, priests, shamans and seers, have observed by looking within themselves. Many of history's monumental thinkers, such a Pythagoras, Kepler, Leonardo DaVinci, Tesla, and Einstein, have come to the threshold of this great mystery. It is the common link between all religions, all sciences, and the link between our inner worlds and our outer worlds.

LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism’s founder Jan Engels-Smith interviewed Margie McMahan an artist and shaman who created a card deck of mantras that can be used as tools for self improvement, divination and healing.  www.margiemcmahan.com

Mantras can transform your thoughts and beliefs.  Most of what we tell ourselves is unkind and untrue.  To change those limiting thoughts or beliefs we need to resonate and get in alignment with a new feeling that empowers, heals, and brings well being.

Having a visual reminder in a card can help a person create the habit.

These cards are beautiful and are imbued with high energy frequencies that you will feel as you work with them.

Enjoy the conversation about these cards as Jan and Margie discuss shamanic principals, shamanic beliefs and shamanic ways of healing.  Also the conception of these cards.

Mar 26, 2018

In this episode of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism Podcast, Jan Engels-Smith is interviewed by David Newell of Inner Truth.  A broadcast and show out of the UK.  

What is shamanism and how is it useful to us in day-to-day life? Are there other realms we can journey to and experience? Has science disproved or given further evidence to support this ancient practice?

These are some of the questions I put to Jan Engels-Smith, a shamanic practitioner and the founder of the LightSong School of 21st Century Shamanism and Energy Medicine where she teaches shamanism and journeying techniques.

Central to Jan’s work is the philosophy that shamanism is not the preserve of a gifted few seers or just for indigenous cultures to practice but that we all have the capacity to cultivate a shamanic skillset through journeying and practices that help move us from left brain focus into right-brain experience.

In her book, Through the Rabbit Hole, Jan talks about dominance of left-brained thinking in our culture and in particular the limiting belief that all we see is all there is. This belief keeps our imagination and our other subtler senses locked away from the wider world around us. Opening up our minds to other realms and possibilities connects us in new ways to the universe.

You might think scientific findings would be at odds with a shamanic perspective of life but actually there’s more correlation than you would first imagine. Relatively theory and quantum mechanics indicate there is a vast amount of the universe not observable to the human eye, indeed almost all of it is dark matter and dark energy. Within that, it’s already been shown for some time that our consciousness has a direct impact on the world around us, a phenomenon known more widely as the observer effect and something that has been espoused in shamanism for millennia.

With this level of cross-over though, shamanism still remains a niche activity in popular culture today. I caught up with Jan to talk about what has happened to shamanism in the West, the ways it can help cultivate a relationship with spirit and mostly importantly help us find greater fulfillment and peace in life.

Episode Topics

  • What is shamanism and what does it mean for the average person?
  • Why has shamanism been traditionally seen as a craft of a select few?
  • How does shamanism, journeying and other ritual practices help people?
  • How does our left brain and right brain relate to the practice?
  • What is shamanic journeying and how do we do it?
  • What are the realms available to us in shamanic journeying?
  • What is a power animal and how does it relate to a person?
