The Alchemy in Shamanism

Transmutation Ritual performed for a client

In my earlier years as a Rosicrucian, I was introduced to Alchemy. A beautiful philosophy that seeks perfection to Life through Transmutation of elemental forces. For the mundane thinker this might be understood a turning base metals into gold; but for the mystic it had a much more precious meaning. Alchemy was a vehicle to increase the soul’s illumination. Shamanism reaches the same goal through a very organic process.

I always tell my apprentices this is a calling you cannot fake. Affirmations, prayers and rituals are already imbued with heartfelt intentions. In essence this work cannot be done without feeling deep Love for Mother Earth and all of our brothers and sisters within and all around her. It is a tradition based on a foundation of gratitude, faith, harmony, trust, equal exchange, etc. This can be personally sensed in a deep unspoken level when you meet one of the Master Shamans, there’s almost a childlike purity to their gaze and embrace. No words need to be spoken, they are vibrating to this higher frequency.

Barely known to science yet, animals interact with their environment based on perceiving vibration. This is why the Shaman can communicate with the Natural world in that pure unmasked Mother Earth Language. There is no secret technique or years of ancient knowledge being practiced, it is just a Soul interacting within Source in Pure Love. In Alchemy this would translate as pure gold.

2021, Adopt Labors of Love…Munay

In one of my initiatic journeys to Peru, I asked one of the master shamans how the ancients had managed to build those gigantic structures, he replied without hesitation that it had been a “Labor of Love”. He followed with the word, “Munay”. He explained that all wise men there know that miracles can only happen when honest effort originates from a pure heart. Will-power fueled by pure Love.

I lovingly want to share this concept with you as we start 2021. Regardless of one’s opinions or leanings, I think with a little reflection we could all agree that so many of the human events in a world wide scale nowadays are Not originating from a desire to Love more. I can humbly share that on an every day basis as I share my art with fellow humans there is a strong sense of connection. I deeply care about everyone I interact with professionally and this creates an atmosphere of love. I’ve never been happier or have experienced a stronger sense of purpose in my life. Inner peace is like something that once experienced you can never go back to the mundane empty life that unawaken life offers. The way to this is Munay.

I’d lovingly like to invite you to reconsider every action you habitually take daily, and restructure your motivations in a way where Love is the originating factor. Even if you have to go to a job you can’t stand, tie that action and its result to some Loving reason that it supports. For example, maybe you hate the job, but it helps bring up your children…and for that reason love should be applied to the assigned tasks. Constantly vibrating in love will create a flurry of miracles in your life.

A Healthy Spirit can Conquer Anything

Article read by Shaman Flavio (plus a little commentary)

Addressing the scientific indifference to the struggling Human Spirit is one of my life missions. A healthy spirit can conquer anything, including the most dire medical diagnosis. Even if the time for transition has arrived, one of the fundamental priorities would be for the spirit to be in peace and in a state of acceptance. Often, I encounter scenarios where loving family members don’t know what to do or how to help in those moments where the realities of this human life and its complexities become unavoidable. These are the precious moments where a person that mostly lives in the spiritual side of this world can help the most. On a last note, if you ever encounter a situation that seems complicated, spirituality will always have an answer. Absolutely seek logical solutions, but also just as importantly pay attention to the spiritual aspect of it.

Honor Other’s Free Will

A few years back I held back from belonging to a well known spiritual commerce association because they would not recognize shamanism in its own classification. Meaning they wanted to bunch it up among other spiritual traditions and practices. I understood their rationale (and ignorance) and we tried to come up with a win-win solution, but in the end I was very stern in what shamanism is and where it can only stand, so we each continued our paths towards different directions.

Spirituality is an intimate part of the human experience. It is everywhere in society and within human history. Some belief systems are very systematized, as in the case of large dominant religions. Others prefer to operate from more obscure settings. Some consider humanity sinful. Others consider the ones apart from their beliefs to be sinners. While others don’t believe in sin at all. I could go on and on. The point I am trying to get to is that Shamanism in neither of the above. In Andean Shamanism we believe that we are children of Mother Earth/Nature and Father Sun, and that they love us unconditionally. Humans in this world are all family and we come to help our family and do our work with our parents (both in society and in a more universal sense).

There are no enemies, there is only lack of harmony. What we experience as negative outcomes is just a sign of a dis-balance that needs attention, negotiating, adjusting, discarding, etc. As a shaman, when I see conflict, disease, lack, despair, etc. my immediate reaction is to avoid the specifics of the material situation, pull back my immersion in the material experience and assess the play of forces and energies going on. In other words my observations focus on issues as:

  • Is this an expanding or contracting energy
  • Is this energy dominant or submissive
  • In Mother Nature would this be a predator or a prey
  • Does this problem originate in front of the eyes or behind them (in front meaning something happening materially. Behind meaning from the imagination or beliefs)
  • Is this a more masculine or feminine trait (We are not talking personal preferences here, but rather how it would be observed in Nature)
  • Is Forgiveness required here. This is not limited to humans.
  • In an magical world, what would be the perfect outcome here
  • Is this a blessing or lesson in disguise

There are other more specific process I will go with depending on the situation, but the above alone will clarify the energies involved.

The main reason I wanted to share this with you is because of a characteristic this tradition has. Everyone in our human family is endowed with a Divine Free Will and a Path of their own. Meaning, you can advise and help those you see in need, but in the end each person has to make their own decisions for their own spiritual evolution. Everyone is free to do whatever they want as long as this does not violate that same right onto someone else.

As a healer, I have found myself in this uncomfortable impasse with some of my clients. Very often I have quickly assessed a problem and mentioned and mentioned it again and again, each time pressing harder, only to see my words fly by deaf ears. It is always good to remind myself that even if I could force a solution to anybody, it would be robbing them of their own self effort and evolution. It also creates a paradox for me, since the frustration (lack of harmony) I feel, in itself is a lesson for me to work on. As a final note, this strongly applies to global politics and social correctness as well.

Beware of the Toxic Nurturer

In all my years of shamanic practice, I have seen countless cases of human relations. There is one that I particularly find very disturbing, I call them the “Toxic Nurturers”. These are people that are usually well off, healthy, good looking and caring. Basically, they have all the deceiving attributes to lure you right into their toxic little inescapable trap.

Here’s how the process can begin. You somehow meet this loving person that suddenly takes a legitimate liking to you. The relationship or friendship moves very fast. Within a matter of days/weeks you find yourself in some commitment, job or living with this person. All along things seem fine and the “toxic nurturer” is constantly loving and giving. The problem is that you are either sinking in deeper emotionally or starting to resent this person. These feelings are originating from a subconscious understanding that in a very subtle manner this person sees you as broken. They have little expectations of your achievements and even anticipate your failures, so you can reinforce their world view. They need you to stay sunk in their set up so they can feel a sense of purpose. From the outside it seems like this person is helping you. From the inside it feels like you are trapped with no hope. They achieve this by constantly feeding you ideas, alternatives and opportunities that you don’t fit in with, basically designed for you to fail in. As an observer, it’s the intense resentment towards the benefactor that starts making me consider this could be going on.

I have had exposure to both sides of this equation. The person under the “toxic nurturer”, just needs to get out of there as soon as possible. It’s energetic, it can’t be seen but the victim is being detoured/delayed of their life destiny. Ironically, I have seen “victims” do very well and very fast after venturing on their own. This will predominantly happen for two energetic reasons:

  • Through their Free-Will, the “Victim” amasses the courage to be sovereign. This will always yield help from their subconscious powers.
  • The “Victim” is actually teaching the “Toxic Nurturer” that their world view is limiting. Helping The Universe bestow blessings and teachings to fellow humans also ignites your subconscious powers.

As for the “Toxic Nurturers”, in over ten years of practice, I have yet to have one stick around long enough to look into their own issues. They usually end up in my practice under the guise of trying to “repair” the relationship with the fleeing victim, or some other person (a current or future victim). It is never about them. These people have a very somber look of the world. They strongly believe in charity service and use it as a way to temporarily get a fix on their inner brokenness.

The Shamanic List…It Works

This is a 10 min improvised recording of a very positive habit I’ve had for years to increase manifestation flow. It is based on the book: “It Works”, with some extra shamanic ingredients added for extra energy.

10 min recording, by Shaman Flavio
The above recording was originally inspired by this awesome little book. You can hear it for free in Youtube, This is the
Link for “It Works”

Quick tips and reminders:

  • Don’t show it to anybody
  • Use plain bond paper
  • Fold it so that you have a cross pattern (you can fold it more also)
  • Carry the list with you
  • Try to read it three times a day
  • As you read, it’s best if you use a conversation tone and add more details as if telling someone about it.
  • Update it constantly, it’s good to change, edit, or add to it
  • When you need to change the paper, re-use the safety pins

It’s not Reality…It’s your Story

Shamanism considers dramatic and catastrophic events just a side of a story. One very important skill that is required to heal and create “miracles” is to be Lovingly Detached. To understand that when someone relates a dramatic event, this is 100% their version, their story and not reality. Human beings are so incredibly powerful, that as they observe their surroundings they influence and shape them. Formal science in the form of quantum physics confirms this and is finally catching up to what mystics, sages, shamans, etc. have known since the beginning of time. The material world interacts, responds and complies with the way the observer observes it. This is reality, and anything observed is a story dictated by the observer.

This knowledge provides us with the awesome realization that your life up to now can be any story you desire it to be. It can be a drama, a horror flick, a romantic novel, a comedy, a legend, a saga, etc. but whatever you chose it to be, in the end it will be yours and it has to be because of the Universal Law relating to Free Will. Shamans recognize this and must honor this inviolable law. This is why some people can miraculously recover from life threatening condition in weeks or days, after the medical doctors have told them to set their affairs in order. This is also why some people suffer some trauma early in their life and it impairs them until the very day they leave this world. It is all based on the story they have a right to create.

It is very disorienting for people seeking help when they share their pains and concerns with the shaman and he does not exhibit any empathy or may simply laugh at the situation. He is not behaving this way to offend or because he does not believe the person, but rather because he sees reality as a series of stories being told with detail and beauty from the perspective of each magnificent human being. At the same time, the shaman’s story is one of a world fully embraced by Loving Spirit constantly gifting all with magic and manifestation. In the Shamanic Tradition, Spirit is everywhere and all is vibrating to it and all is alive and all lovingly responds.

If we want to heal a part of our life, the mere act of understanding that all is just a story and that all stories can have a twist, will immediately drain power from the flowing force that is maintaining the undesired reality. Afterwards, we can decide what type of story we desire to bring into being. This is why it is crucial to understand that this existence is an illusion, constantly manifesting to our vibrations; or as we shamans call it, it is a dream being dreamed by us, the dreamers.

Reality is what is inside your heart and what you fill it with on a daily basis. Your story is just the excuse for what you have chosen to put inside your heart. May we all as a human family consciously put love and light in our hearts and create magical stories in this beautiful world.

First Chakra Cleanse & Alignment FREE


If you are visiting this page, you are probably aware that the veils are much thinner. In the last couple of weeks most of the calls I have received have been regarding disturbances in the home or within the person in the form of negative emotions. These are emotions that become present with no apparent reason, like: Anxiety, Fear, Sadness, Anger, Resentment, Depression, etc.

If you feel any of the above, before you consider ingesting chemicals (pharmaceutical medicines) to “feel” better, maybe you owe it to yourself and to your ever loyal body to receive a “Free” 50 Minute  energy balancing and cleansing treatment. The process is very simple, just lay in the massage table, listen to some tones that calibrate you, connect with your inner self and receive healing energy waves that purify and energize you. Afterwards I will share the insights about your aura and you can ask about present situations.

These are exciting times, we are remembering that health, happiness and magic reside within us all.

May Many Blessings Follow, in Loving Service,

A Life without Problems or Obstacles


This magnificent gift we call Life, is part of a much larger construct that your senses could never possibly gauge. One of the first concepts one is taught as a Mystic is to understand that there is an extra element in our Universe not perceivable by any of our senses and just starting to be recognized by quantum physicists. This element surrounds and permeates everything and is a very dynamic part of the makeup of our Universe. Although it does respond to certain material laws it mostly responds to Divinity. It is the “All” that constructs the world that we appreciate as our reality.

Why is it important to know about this? Because, you are mostly soul and your physical life is a tool for your soul to evolve and perfect itself. Once this concept is accepted then it is easy to realize that certain things that we invest so much effort and attention to in our physical lives are nothing more than the means by which our soul evolves through. So, for example, if your soul needed to polish itself in “Patience”, regardless of your physical decisions, you would find yourself in a relationship or job or situation where the need for patience would be an issue. Without the above understanding, situations would constantly reappear in your life where you would find yourself confronted by obstacles trying to lead you to develop the character traits needed.

A Shaman or Psycho-Spiritual Counselor could quickly recognize this situation and advise what shifts would be needed, but you don’t need to see a shaman for every recurring situation that happens in your life. We are all born with our own guidance system, it is your heart. The very essence that drives your heart to beat every single second of your life is in direct flow with the life force that is a manifestation of the extra element I mentioned above. It is a manifestation of the Divinity within you, in other words your soul. Through your heart you have a direct connection to your soul. And your soul possesses the most powerful force that drives your life in this existence. When you start living with the primary purpose of perfecting your soul, at first things will seem very difficult because many things will change around you, things you thought you needed will leave you, tough choices will invariably show up, this will be a time of turbulence while you shift from a life of illusion to a life of Truth. Eventually, you will come out of the rough and enter into a state of harmony, an existence where your soul will whisper which areas need to be worked on and you will diligently take them on in the form of service.  Obstacles don’t need to show up in your life anymore and force you into a behavior, because now, you are aware and you understand your purpose and you eagerly look for ways to perfect your inner essence through offering instead of expecting.

A few simple tips to get started:

– Whenever a challenging situations appears in your life, reflect on the character trait that would have avoided the situation to happen.

– If in doubt, there is no doubt, never go for something if you have doubts about it.

– Never make a big decision (ie. marry, divorce, quit, etc)  when emotionally unstable or during a crisis

– No matter how hard your life is at the moment, practice loving someone or something (ie. family, friend, dog, rose, sunset, etc) daily

– Whatever you need (money, love, reassuring, hope, etc), try giving a little of it first, as often as you can and anonymously if possible.

– Place both your hands on your chest, breathe in deeply seven times saying to your inner self , “I Love you and Thank you”

May you be Blessed!

Why Can’t I get a Straight Answer in Divination?


In the movie “300 Spartans” there is a scene where the Spartans go to consult the Oracle about their fate or what is the best course of action to take against the Persians. They were answered: “The strength of bulls or lions cannot stop the foe. No, he will not leave off, I say, until he tears the city or the king limb from limb”. Later, and this is not in the movie, the Delphians, after hearing of such somber fate for the Spartans also asked the Oracle for advice, and She replied: “Pray to the Winds. They will prove to be mighty allies of Greece”

People that go to the “Other” side are used to this type of communication, it is non-linear and flexible enough to see the purest Truth or to allow one to self-deceit himself. After all this is The Way of this existence. At all times, regardless of external appearances we are in full control of our free will. If we decide to play the fool, the prefered path by the non initiated, life complies and gracefully leads us to the obstacles that lead to lessons to be learned.

The question I am often asked is, “Why, can’t I just get a straight answer?” Should I do it or not? Should I break it off or should I keep trying to work it out?, Should I fight or should I flee?, etc. Again, this existence is not linear, so answers will always reflect that, and yet they will always hint the correct path to take. Here are a few pointers that will help:

– Choose the Higher Path, the one that requires the use of virtues (ie. courage, tolerance, compassion, etc)

– If in doubt, there is no doubt! as you receive the answer your mind will immediately respond with Truth, then the ego will filter and cloudy it.

– If you have No Idea what you were just told, exercise Faith and wait; more signs and hints will show up soon.

– If the solution seems ridiculous, remember everything carries vibration, the suggested action could just be the catalyst for a domino effect.

– The answers are not bound by time or space, they are pillars of Truth to occur whenever you are ready for them.

For a person that is familiar with the intricacies and mysteries of the other side, the above points are second nature. We don’t need to know certain things, actually knowing certain things would only delay the evolution of the soul, which is what we are all after, believe it or not. The best approach I have found is to gratefully accept whatever information comes, with an open mind and a willingness for new adventures within this life cycle. If you are constantly aware that Source will unendingly offer opportunities for your inner greatness to expand, then life becomes a flow that you will always welcome with open arms, instead of a struggle to keep safe from.

Going back to history and the Oracle at Delphi, King Leonidas (Lion) was, in the end, killed as foretold; afterwards his head was separated from his body. As for the Delphian’s question, there was a three day storm that wiped out one fifth of the Persian’s armada. This allowed the greeks to hold their own at sea.
