Blessing Rituals

Alan Waugh creates beautiful rituals performed in nature to feel the heart beat of Pachamama / Mother Earth more directly, allowing participants and guests to feel blessed by beauty. Although the ceremonies will be largely Shamanic in nature, they will be customized to reflect individual spiritual and personal requirements. Although all ceremonies are somewhat spontaneous in nature there will be Peruvian based ritual which will include some of the following practices:

 

WEDDINGS:
All ceremonies will include vows that have been specially created by the couple that reflects their religious or spiritual tradition or beliefs. Included in ritual:

 
CORDING
A single cord will be placed around the couples wrists, symbolizing the energetic bond that is being realized on this day. This will be cut at the end of the ceremony (to allow for ease of movement!) All the guests will tie a similar cord around their wrist as a token of regard for the couple and as a reminder of the ceremony and its significance.

 

LIMPIA or CLEANSING
Energy Cleanses: Using indigenous practices learned in Peru, I use smoke from sahumeria herbal concoctions, feathers and rattles to help release negative energies. I also use perfumes in a technique known as Chupando – sucking to pull out an energy block after having diagnosed the source of the energetic constriction to allow for the natural healing flow of your own body’s energy channels.

 

SOUND BLESSING
Using medicine songs and music, such as drum and didgeridoo, Alan will call forth the spirits of nature, to bring in powerful vibrations and light energy to the ceremony.

 

DESPACHO:
These are a traditional offering from the Andes region of Peru that are made to offer sacred reciprocity or Ayni to the spiritual realms and Ancestors of the couple. In creating a Despacho and intending a particular outcome, (such as pregnancy or abundance), the couple will be calling in powerful forces to assist them as they embark on their journey together.

$400 to $600 for a Wedding depending on location.

 

FUNERARY RITES:
Having volunteered in Hospice for 20 years, Alan is finely attuned to the needs of families and friends at this time of transition. Particularly with a sudden death, the soul of the departed can get “stuck” in the Middle
World or physical dimension. Alan will act as transition guide to allow for all involved to help the soul/ spirit/ or consciousness of the departed to move into the light of the Great Spirit.

Using specially created Transition Despachos, or offerings, and sacred song, all gathered will create a vehicle or bridge for their loved one to move out of physical form, back fully to spirit. To be actively involved in
this way, allows for a powerful transition both for the loved one and for flow of their own grieving process.

CLEARING HOMES AND OFFICES:

While our homes and offices can provide a wonderful respite, it is important to occasionally take time to revitalize rooms by clearing out the stagnant energies that accumulate. Most indigenous traditions have a method for consecrating sacred space to remove negative or intrusive energies. We can utilize these practices to uplift our homes and workspaces, so that they are a continuing source of rejuvenation and nourishing support to us.

When to energetically clear space:

Make a fresh start in your new space by consciously removing stagnant energies
lingering from past residents.If there has been illness, divorce, death, or other stressful situations, there likely to be a need for conscious clearing and revitalizing.

Welcome the new baby, new partnership or other celebratory moment by first completing your own energetic clearing of the home or office.

If you feel creatively blocked, having unusual sleep patterns, nightmares, unusual bad communication or other unusual circumstances that occur when you enter the space in question.

$300 to $400 depending on location.

 

SPIRITUAL BATH CLEANSES:

Vapor Bath
The vapor bath or sahumeria is a treatment from the Upper Amazon and is similar in effect as a Temescal, as used by the Mayans. Instead of building a sealed enclosure, the vapor bath uses a blanket to contain the vapor. The client stands outside in a bathing suit with a blanket wrapped around them. A steaming pot containing boiling
water and specially prepared herbs and flowers is set underneath the blanket, creating an individual steam bath. The vapor, containing the infusion of the herbs and plants penetrates the pores of the skin and helps to release pathogens and mal aire or heavy energy and is particularly effective for removing intrusive energy. Included in with a 2 hour Shamanic Session.

 

Flower Bath
Following the Vapor Bath is often given a flower bath, which is a powerful limpia (cleansing). A container prepared the night before, with fresh water and a combination of specially prepared flower petals, essences and colognes, is poured over the client whilst singing special songs. This releases the toxins removed by the vapor bath and leaves you fresh and protected from negative energies. Typically these baths are given in the morning before one has eaten .

Cost for these combined is $180 and would be a suggested treatment for certain conditions usually related to Energetic Intrusions or feelings of being overwhelmed.
