Shamanic Energy Healing

Shamanic Practitioner

Native Americans have known for centuries that everything is energy. When you are dis-eased, out of balance, feeling emotional or all of the above, Shamanic Energy Healing can help you find peace.

Karen has studied this ancient energy healing practice and is a Certified Shamanic Practitioner. When you come to Karen for an energy healing, she may determine which modalities will work best for your confidential situation. This may include drumming, meditation, chakra balancing, saging or other tools she has in her Shaman pocket.

If you would like to know your Spirit Animal(s), Karen can do a dedicated meditation to connect with her guides to learn more about you and your spiritual path. This is a powerful way to heal past wounds and help you find your way in the future.

"After Karen ran my bars® I felt GREAT! It's hard to describe the experience I had. I could definitely feel like I was releasing negative energy and even saw some ancient artifacts float through. I have NO idea what that was! But afterwards I felt lighter and happier. I also felt ultra focused for several weeks after. That was really an added bonus! I definitely recommend you try this unique energy healing. I'm ready to become a regular!"

Power Animal Retrieval

The retrieval of a power animal is often a very exciting and spiritually awakening event for people and is recommended for people at all stages of life.

Sometimes a power animal leaves suddenly for unknown reasons. When this happens, the person becomes disempowered and the result is misfortune and/or illness. The services of a shamanic practitioner can retrieve the power animal for the client in “non-ordinary” reality (assisted by the shaman’s power animal!) and return it to the client in this reality. Specific symptoms which indicate the need for a power animal retrieval include repeated misfortune/accidents, chronic and debilitating illness, depression and, in extreme cases, a lack of will to live.

A shaman addresses this loss of power by journeying into the spirit world to discover an animal spirit that had previously been their client’s companion. Prevailing upon the animal’s compassion, the shaman invites it to return to its human friend. If the animal agrees, the shaman escorts it back to the client. After such a retrieval the client may experience a resurgence of power, health or effectiveness. Retrieving power animal is a fundamental way to retrieve a person’s innate, instinctual energies, of re-spiriting a person, re-integrating their core energies and bringing them a true ally for healing, for life-guiding, and for relationship.

Rock Divination

From a shamanic perspective, divination is based on the principle that everything in life is connected. You could view the universe as ‘a great cosmic spider web.’ If you accept that everything is connected and part of a greater whole, it stands to reason that predictions can be made about one thing by looking at other things. Throughout the centuries people have employed many ways of reading omens and determining what the future might hold. To mention but a few: oracles, scrying (i.e., gazing into a reflection) dowsing, pyromancy (i.e., gazing at a fire), reading tea leaves, oneirology (interpreting dreams), palmistry (interpreting the lines on people’s hands), tarot cards, the I-Ching and so forth.

One of the classic tasks of the shaman is to journey into non-ordinary reality in order to obtain answers to questions, both at the request of others and for oneself. Once a question has been presented, a shaman is able, through training and practice, to journey to the non-ordinary world and receive answers or messages directly from spirit. Typically, a shaman will bring back 8 different messages that relate to one question.

This is a wonderful practice to participate in if you are wondering about something in particular. For example, “Am I on the right career path?” “What do I need to know to balance my life?” “Why is ___ happening to me?” “Will I find love?”A rock divination may be done either in person or remotely.

Soul Retrieval

Soul Retrieval is the process that is done through a practice known as “shamanic journeying” to find the fragmented parts of your soul and reuniting them to make you whole. This practice often plays hand in hand with the practice of Shamanic Energy Healing – Soul Retrieval may require deeper and more numerous journeys.

During a soul retrieval, a shaman will travel through the spirit realm to find a person’s lost soul part(s). Many times, a traumatic event, or even several small events can cause a soul to separate. When a lost soul part is found, it is returned to the person’s soul to be reunited. Although the person may have multiple soul parts missing, each soul part that is returned to its source brings the person closer to spiritual wholeness.

Through soul retrieval, a person’s past fear/anxiety is faced and confronted. Through the aid of spirit helpers, a sole is able to become full, whole and harmonious. The universe is literally realigned to accommodate the newly healed soul. Both distant and in-person soul retrievals are available and equally effective because the healing is performed in the spirit realm.

"You did a Rock Divination for me. It was a very difficult time in our lives (my husband and myself) and the information I got from the reading was helpful in many ways. I felt a reassurance that there would be an end to our issues that we were having and I also found comfort from the feeling that I was not alone in our trials. I could see from the reading that I had my religion to rely on but also the feeling that my spiritual family (family that had passes) are also helping us through these times. Thank you 🙂"

Christine R.

"I've received Shamanic Healing from Karen as well as attended multiple classes and even purchased products from her. The biggest and best thing about Karen is she's ALL heart. Whether healing or teaching, Karen always approaches her sessions with the utmost respect for where the client is coming from  and strives to meet them there. It's apparent that she wants the best for her others and always comes from a place of selflessness and service.  Always willing to pass on her knowledge, revering it as something to be passed on and shared for the betterment of all. Never does she come across as superior in any way, but presents herself in a sisterly way. She's quick to give credit and bring to light others' gifts, lifting them up to meet themselves as the gifts of the universe. Karen is a gift and I'm so happy to be a part of her circle."

Candy T.

"Karen is Very Knowledge regarding Crystals. She was able to educate me and assist in  combining select crystals for my various needs. I have just purchased five crystals to aid in manifesting My 2019 Vision Path. Power Medicine! I have had two Reiki sessions - Each one was very physically healing AND spiritually enlightening. Both were very different in the visions that appeared and the spiritual affirmations presented to continue on my path. Karen is truly a Gifted Shamanic Healer."

Sherry D.

"I highly recommend Karen to anyone who seeks a solid teacher who will equip you with tools needed to move forward in your calling. It's been rewarding to learn from someone who it thorough and patient. What I have enjoyed most is there is absolutely never any pressure! I have been blessed over and over after each monthly class and online class, taking away a strong message each time. By the vast amount of professional and easy instruction delivered by Karen I have learned basic crystal and energy principles. I can't wait to learn more! I plan to continue taking classes and being in attendance for the monthly HYA groups."

Naomi L.

"I recently had the pleasure of attending a dream catcher/wind chime workshop with Karen.  Not only was she a delightful and enthusiastic hostess, but she provided the opportunity to work with a like minded group, new to me. The circle seating allowed for sharing and developing community....so feeds the soul. Additionally the yummy lunch fed our tummies. Karen was also generous with her supplies, inviting us to help ourselves to her treasures so we can continue creating on our own. A group would be more fun but I'm sure as I work on a project, Karen and the group will be present in spirit."

Energy Clearing

(Your Home or Business)

Everything around us is made of energy – from our own physical bodies to our cars, homes, land, trees, etc. Just as we need to keep our own energy bodies cleansed and operating at a high frequency or vibration, it is also important to cleanse the spaces around us where we spend most of our time.

Energy can become stale or stagnant and toxic energies from emotional outbursts such as anger and fear can linger in a space. Discarnate spirits can also inhabit spaces, especially in old houses or on land where traumatic events have occurred. I offer a special cleansing & blessing ceremony for your personal spaces, whether it be your home, car, office or land. I will fully cleanse the space and then purify & bless it with Love, Joy, Peace & Happiness.

My home and business clearing combine a thorough energetic cleansing with powerful techniques to repair the energy field, aligning it with the most harmonious energy flow. I do this without requiring any physical changes to space or reconfigurations.

Blocked energy within a home or business can cause:

  • Fatigue
  • Lack of energy
  • Mental and emotional stress
  • Conflict or lack of harmony in relationships
  • Sleep disorders
  • Ongoing health issues
  • Negative thinking or forgetfulness
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Business problems or lack of prosperity in a home
  • Blockages in creativity

After a clearing session my clients report:

  • A much lighter, harmonious feeling in their homes or businesses
  • Improvements in the relationships between them and others in their property
  • An increase in prosperity
  • A feeling of being more relaxed
  • Reduced stress

If you were to get a splinter in your finger, you could describe that splinter as an intrusion into your physical body. You would extract the splinter with a pair of tweezers, and that would be a physical extraction.

Just as your physical body can have an intrusion, your spiritual body may also take on an intrusion. Spiritual intrusions can form in a number of ways. Here are a few examples of where an intrusion may come from:

  • Anger – either coming toward you or coming from you
  • Not expressing yourself and/or stuffing your emotions away
  • Verbal or physical attack
  • Poor self-esteem
  • Pain or illness
  • Negative thoughts

An intrusion is identified by a Shaman’s spirit helper(s) and is extracted by the spirit helper(s) as well. This practice of extraction should only be done by a trained Shaman.

A Shaman has been taught how to aid in an exaction without harming himself or anyone else. A Shaman will also take the misplaced negative energy that has been extracted from a person’s body and place it into water.

Once the energy is neutralized in water, the energy is free to be relocated through Mother Earth…kind of like cosmic recycling!

downsing opt


Although the art of dowsing is known to and practiced by many tribal communities, it is not necessarily a shamanic practice. It just happens that I have been a dowser for many years, and dowsing and shamanism blend nicely together.

Dowsing is simply the ability to connect to a higher state of guidance—to ask questions and get answers. From a simplistic scientific perspective, it is the ability to access information available through the right side of our brains. (In our Western culture most individuals operate almost exclusively through the left side of their brains).

Dowsing is a tool that can aid us in expanding our abilities to use a greater proportion of our brains during which whole new possibilities become available to us. By using dowsing as a tool you can access your higher self, your inner knowing. It is a technique that can be learned to connect to your subconscious.

Dowsing is commonly used to:

  • Find water or minerals underground
  • Finding answers to questions
  • Finding lost people and/or items
  • Communication with the spirit world
  • Targeting areas of high or low energy
  • Identifying lay lines

I am an active member of the American Society of Dowsers, Inc. http://dowsers.org/.

Remote Healing

Remote Healing is for those who are unable to be with me but want clearing or healing done. It is not always easy to find a Shaman in your location.

Remote healing allows the work you need to be done regardless of the distances or time zones. It also allows you to receive healing from a particular Shaman that you want to work with.

Remote healing makes healing possible when a person to be healed has depression, addiction, a contagious illness, cannot be touched for some reason, or feels more comfortable with the long distance method.

Long distance healing is frequently used with children that are unwilling to sit still long enough to be healed. These ancient and powerful techniques can bring about significant change and healing for the recipient.

Please note, I am not a certified therapist, but I can offer a path of healing and enlightenment through art.

Great things happen when you bring a child, animal spirit helpers, paint and a blank canvas together!

This fun and educational personal time is a great way to free and empower the inner child within any person.


"I was thrilled with the journey meditation that Karen did for me. She did the meditation journey to find my power animal. What impressed me the most is the confidence and trust, which she has in her spirit helpers. She explains all about her journey and tells you in detail all she sees, but then leaves the interpreting to you. In this journey, Karen had a vision that only I would understand and connect with and I know she had no way of having that information."

Pets are part of the family and as such, when they are sick or lethargic or not eating for some reason, we pet parents feel helpless.

Believe it or not, pets can communicate with us. You probably recognize many of the signals your pet gives you and you try to respond by giving them what they want.
