What is the origin of this practice?
Feather Stone is a beautiful practice rooted in the shamanic energy healing tradition. It combines the power of unconditional love with the healing energies of nature. The power of unconditional love is the force of the creator, the purest energy of all. When love and compassion flow through our hearts, we become a channel for healing. Within a space of love, we can transform, release and restore energy.
The practice of Feather Stone has been discovered and developed by Claudia Goncalves and Mark Halliday, founders of The Edinburgh Shamanic Centre, together with the guidance of Spirit.
What happens during a session?
The practitioner begins the treatment with a gentle scan of the energy body. This can be done with the hands or through the use of an animal feather. The feather is considered pure natural energy, therefore pure Spirit. It can clear, move and balance the client's energy field. Some natural stonesare often positioned around the body. Common areas include the space between the eyebrows, the chest or stomach/belly areas, the hands, and feet. Private areas of the body are of course left alone. The stones hold a very grounding energy that can center and calm the mind. Also, they act like sponges and absorb any “dusty energy" from the physical body. After the clearing and balancing practices, the practitioner restores and recharges the energy of the client by simply channeling the energy of nature through his/her hands. The energy of the sun, the moon, the trees, the sea and all the elements in nature can contribute to the session providing healing, support, and guidance. This treatment often involves the cleansing, and balancing of the chakras system as well.
Please note that the treatment is fully clothed and each session is designed around the client’s needs.
What is the use of the feathers and stones?
The Feather Stone practitioner works with animal feathers and natural stones, the embodiment of the energy of the Sky and the Earth, the masculine and the feminine energy within the universe. Natural elements are pure energy, therefore pure Spirit. Feathers, especially, can clear the energy field and remove attachments, cords, or dusty energy. By using a feather, the practitioner can also move, distribute, and balance energy. Some natural stones are often positioned around the body too. The stones act as sponges and can absorb from the physical and energy body all the “dust” accumulated through our busy lives. Additionally, stones have an ancient consciousness and can bring their wisdom into the session.
What do I need to do?
Simply breath, relax and let go what doesn't serve. You can set an intention for the session, that can simply rest into the heart space. The treatment usually takes place on a comfortable massage table or a yoga mat, depending on your preferences. Blankets and cushions are also available.
Where does the energy come from?
The energy of unconditional love comes from our beloved Universe or Life Source. We hold that energy within our hearts. Nature embodies that energy too and shares her healing in every session. Think of how you feel when you are surrounded by trees or are lying on the beach. Then you can easily understand the healing capacities of the Earth and the blessings of the natural world.
