About the Artist

Lesley Almer has immersed herself in the natural healing arts since 2002 as an Holistic Bodyworker and Crystal Sound Healer in Seal Beach, California. She continues to evolve and develop her heart-centered passion for this industry. Lesley facilitates workshops, crystal sound baths, and creates sacred space in her own practice for those who seek balance and transformation in their lives.



What is a guided Shamanic Journey?

The Shamanic journey is a sacred process. Journeying has been used for thousands of years to find answers, collect wisdom, and gather healing energy for those who seek insight.  It is a powerful tool for personal growth that allows your mind to stretch and play, while opening the gateway to imagination and intuition.

Shamanic journeying is typically performed with a drum to induce an altered state of consciousness or trance state. This recording has been created specifically as an introduction for those who are new to this practice. To collect the appropriate energies and ensure the highest good, I relied on the help of my guides and teachers to craft this guided meditation. This entailed daily journeys for a complete month.  This guided journey comes from the heart and is to be used for the greatest good for all who listen.

Pick a comfortable spot to rest, open your heart and consciousness to my words as they guide you into the lower world.  Pay attention to images you see, colors, animals, and whispered messages.  Each time you experience this journey, it will be uniquely yours, for your present state of well-being.

For more information or training in Shamanism, I highly recommend contacting the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.



Taking Shape:

The concept for this audio recording began as a crystal sound bath event called “Awakening Your Inner Shaman.” It consisted of a guided journey accompanied by healing tones of a sound bath for all attendees.

I called for assistance in creating this guided journey by turning inward and journeying each day for a compete month. Everyday, I collected energies and images that eventually manifested into the words you hear on this recording. Each time I journeyed searching for assistance, I came back with deep feelings of love and support. A whole team of helpers from the spirit world aided me on this project.

It was during a rehearsal for this event that I got the vision of a recording. Like most seeds of creativity, it took time to take a definite shape. Presenting this event in person was fun, memorable, and a very successful initiation for many participants. After a number of continuing nudges, I knew it was time to offer this initiation to a larger audience. The world needs the energy of us operating on our highest levels. This larger vision led me to the recording studio.

I chose Divasonic Studios specifically because of this studio’s connection and understanding of sound healing. The narrative was the first session, then came the singing/chanting vocals, the crystal singing bowls, and in the final session the last three tracks of drumming were introduced. Great care and attention was given to each layer of sound.

The mantras I used at the end of the Guided Shamanic Journey are known as the Directional Deity Name Mantras and the Directional Weapon Mantras.** I fell in love when I first learned them because they cover all spatial directions as well as the elements (fire,air, earth & water) and self. These mantras are now a constant in my life. I use them on regular basis before I journey to clear and protect my space.

The drumming tracks are intended to take you to the next level for deep Shamanic journeys. Each of the drumming tracks is timed in the fibonacci sequence (8, 13, 21) and ends with a healing breath. Words are not enough to explain what the healing breath will do for you, it is something you must experience. Each one is different and will solidify you with the appropriate energies for that particular journey.

I’ve included healing breaths because of their cleansing power and potency for accessing clarity and wisdom. Like sound, the breath can be used as an energetic transport to many dimensions. The very first time I participated in a Shamanic journey in 2008, I experienced a healing breath from Gaia (Mother Earth). It was so big and profound that the memory feels fresh even years later. To my surprise, I exhaled so loud with this portal of air, it’s energy reverberated through the entire assembled group. It wasn’t until years later that I understood this enormous breath was meant to strengthen the connection between me, the group and Gaia. It was for everyone gathered there to experience. Yes, it was quite powerful. Enjoy this extra bonus. I hope it helps to bring you deeper meaning and assimilation of what it is you seek.

Whether you choose to use the Guided Shamanic Journey, the drumming tracks, or both, be gentle with yourself. Let yourself relax, clear your head, and allow images to come in naturally. By easing into this work, you will not only meet your Shaman teacher, you will plant the seed for developing your intuition. This recording is only the beginning of your self-mastery. Enjoy the journey!

From my heart to yours,
Lesley
