'The same sun shines on everyone'
Hi, I'm Tessa...
I would like to begin by acknowledging the Q'ero Elders, who have made the shamanic teachings available to my teachers, and therefore to me. My teachers have so far been: Dr Alberto Villoldo, Ms Marcela Lobos, Ms Karen Johnson, Mr Lawrence Furtsch, Ms Martha Abbott, Mr Marcel Heyder from the Four Winds Society, as well as my local shaman Dr Sherif Tawfilis whom I go to regularly for my own healing as well as to further my education. I am also currently studying under Ms Sandra Ingerman.
After close to a decade on my 'spiritual journey', I heard the powerful call of the shamanic path and answered with every cell of my being. You don't choose this path, it chooses you. It also comes with great responsibility, hard work and ultimately changes and challenges almost every aspect of your life and being.
As an initiated shamanic healer I strive to take care not just of my own wellbeing, but that of the planet and of course others. Pachamama (Mother Earth), the lineage I am connected to and many other enlightened spiritual beings as well as nature herself has a lot to teach us about living in harmony, balance and walking 'with beauty' in our multiverse. Shamanism is NOT a religion and there is no 'leader'. Quite the opposite, it is a path of direct revelation and impeccability and shamans are self-referencing. It is a peaceful way of life where we aim to self-actualize and be of service. We believe each soul has to go through healing and spiritual awakening to be whole and live out the highest possible destiny for its particular lifetime. I believe each one of us has to form our own connection to the Divine and that it is our birthright to do so. No one has the full truth and no one truly knows what happens after death, but we are all free to become seekers as opposed to being told what to believe by a leader or organization. (I have written extensively on Shamanism/shamanic healing and how it really is not an 'ism' in the first place in the articles on this website).
As a Shamanic healer I 'journey' between the realms of the Lower, Middle & Upper Worlds, connect with spirit/spirits and live my life trying to help others transmute darkness to light. When we shine light on pain, suffering, our fears and shadows we find healing and our true purpose. It is never too late to create change in your life, but you have to see yourself as the main actor on the stage of your life and be still enough to hear your soul and spirit. In my own training, I have had to face not just my deepest seated fears but my own karmic baggage, family karma, shadow side and of course my own human struggles like addictive patterns, weight issues and more. I have fought to be where I am today and now I am helping others.
Spirit is in everything. Light is in everything & YOU have the power to heal, shed your karmic destiny and create the life you dream of, for yourself and the world. I am just a conduit for spirit, a hollow bone, holding sacred space for you to go through your own transformation. I believe healing has to happen on all levels, from the physical to the spiritual and only YOU can choose to take an integrative approach in your own life.
Shamanism, the medicine way, is my soul's deepest calling and the guide for how I wish to live my life. Shamanism is a path of direct revelation, no filter between you and spirit, no guru, no rule...but love, integrity, ethics and wishing to help Pachamama (Mother Earth) and all life forms. It is ancient, sacred & very powerful and when you answer the shamanic call in your heart as a healer, like I did, you enter into a life long partnership with spirit. When I call, spirit answers, but when spirit calls I answer...there are no shortcuts, just hard work, depth & deep reverence for the sacred.
Let's gather in sacred space, around the fire that has burned since the beginning of mankind. Join me on your healing journey as I continue on mine.
