Core Shamanism Chronicles: Shamanic Healing & Autism

©2019 Foundation for Shamanic Studies

The biggest impact to my life has been the healing of my daughter’s symptoms of autism. At three and four years, my daughter had some major challenges, which I recognized as symptoms of being on the autism spectrum. I had just started learning about shamanism through the Foundation’s courses. After finishing the Two Week Shamanic Healing Intensive, I decided to try some of the healings on my daughter. To my relief, she started improving. But what was so absolutely beautiful, was that over the next year-and-a-half, my spirit helpers showed me specific healings to give to her and other children with autism and ADHD. Now I use these and the information I have learned to help other families dealing with autism or ADHD experience relief, joy, and connection as their children’s symptoms decrease. My daughter is now almost nine and she has no visible symptoms of what she experienced when she was three. She is still a sensitive child, but doesn’t have to struggle like she did before. She is happy and thriving and these healings and knowledge have been the greatest blessing for us as a family!
