Healing Advice from a Curandera Shaman.


Vilma Pineda is a highly respected curandera (healer) from high in Andes mountains of Peru. People from all over the world have come to her and her family for healing for many generations. I had the great fortune of sitting with her for a ceremony called an “Ayni Despacho.” This is done to bring us back to “right relationship” with nature–or as she calls it “the Pachamama” or earth Mother.

My takeaway from Vilma is that we can call in the healing forces by opening our hearts and expressing a deep felt desire to accept the healing being offered. We all have a special purpose and a gift to share with humanity. Know what that is and have a deep desire to share it. You are then in “right relationship” to give and receive. She went on to say It’s all about love (giving and accepting) which heals all.
