Power animal retrieval is one of the most common shamanic requests. In many shamanic paradigms everyone is born with an animal spirit who has volunteered to help and protect them. Sometimes these animals leave and then the person becomes sick, or has a run of bad luck, etc. Other times we outgrow the power animal and need another one to help us into the next phase of our lives.
Everyone has the help and protection of spirit beings often in the form of animal spirits. Power animals are usually not domesticated animals and you can have more than one. Even if a person has never heard of power animals they will have a special affinity for certain animals, or have had unusual experiences with certain animals. It is quite likely that this is their power animal trying to get their attention.
Power animals are powerful spirits that assume the form of animals — perhaps it is the easiest way for humans to see and understand them, or maybe they like the look. They are not animals and sometimes you are allowed to see their alternate forms such as a human form. Power animals are a volunteer position, a being who is offering an amazing gift of helping someone in his or her life.
Every power animals is powerful — an eagle is just as powerful as a mouse. The particular animal that you receive will have special traits that are important for your life now.

Plant Spirit Medicine
Plant Spirit Medicine is the shamans’ way with plants. It recognizes that plants have spirit and that spirit is the strongest medicine. Spirit can heal the deepest reaches of the body, heart and soul.
Since the beginning of time, when the traditional shaman-healer turned to the plant world, he turned to the spirits of the plants. It was the spirits of the plants that healed his patients. The spirits were his friends, his teachers, and his allies.
You could think of plant spirit medicine as the next level above homeopathy. Working with the Spirit of the plant to heal. Sometimes that might include taking some physical extract of the plant but often it is just getting the healing energies from the plant and delivering them to the client to generate a healing.
