Many people claim to be shamans but they are not. They throw the term around loosely but don’t really know what it means nor have they done the work to truly earn the title. Make sure you are working with a REAL shaman and not just someone who has gone to a few ceremonies and thinks they are a shaman now. Very important!

A lot of people who are conducting medicine ceremonies have no training whatsoever, they are simply passing out the medicine and hoping for the best. They don’t know how to protect a ceremony, they don’t know how to remove dark energies from the environment or from people, and they don’t know how to truly facilitate a person who is in a difficult process. Pretty words are not enough.

Shamanic training takes many years to complete and only when a shaman is ready does he or she receive the blessing of the elders to hold ceremonies. This title takes as long to earn as a Western medicine doctor takes to earn his or her degree, almost 8 years. Many vision quests are required. Many Sundances are required. It is also required to apprentice at hundreds of ceremonies as a firekeeper and shaman’s assistant, as well, caring for the participants. 

There are many tests and challenges along the way. The elders must see that the apprentice hoping to earn the title of Shaman has made personal life changes appropriate to someone who is ready to be a leader, healer and teacher to the community. Only then is a person blessed with the authority and right to carry the medicines to the people.

She can see their auras and determine where the blockages are. She also has an uncanny way of going straight to the core of what is needing to be healed.

Christine Breese doesn’t keep a lot of money for herself. Her prime directive is to help anyone who wants to heal and awaken, in whatever way they need in any given moment. That is what is most important to her. This is not an era for making tons of money, she says. This is the Great Awakening of Humanity, and she does her part to make it possible for every individual to ride this wave. 

“To heal yourself is to heal the world. To awaken is to awaken the world. To live your life in a beautiful way is how you change the world.” — Christine Breese, PhD, Shaman
