Our physical body is surrounded by a Luminous Energy Field (LEF) — our Aura. This energy field is an invisible matrix that holds the imprint of all our karmic, personal and ancestral memories, traumas and wounds. These imprints can become activated to mirror a personal history that repeats itself by compelling us towards behaviors, relationships, accidents or illness that replicate the original trauma. An Illumination is the shamanic clearing of the negative imprints in our Luminous Energy Field, it is an energy healing technique that uses special sacred medicine stones, called Khuyas, to remove heavy energy from the LEF.

An Illumination is helpful when:

  • You feel stuck in a behavioral pattern which continues to repeat itself
  • You are struggling to heal from traits (health or emotional) that are part of your ancestry
  • Emotional traumas of your past continue to haunt you and do not respond well to other healing modalities
  • You experience emotional “triggering” that is so strong as to be debilitating
  • You feel trapped in “Fight, Flight, or Freeze” reactions

During the Illumination, the imprints to the Luminous Energy Field appear as sluggish energy around the chakras. In the process of healing, the heavy emotional energy of the imprint is drained through the chakra, then the imprint itself is erased through the use of focused intention and breath. When the imprint is erased, we are no longer informed by the wounds of our past or ancestry.

Illuminations Combined with Body-Trauma Release

New research indicates that our body holds certain traumas somatically and needs guided motion, breath and physical release to remove a trauma imprint completely. If this is needed for a client’s healing, I find that Illuminations combined with somatic awareness and movement interventions are especially helpful. This process incorporates aspects of Somatic Experiencing and Sensorimotor techniques.
