An Aymara shaman performs a blessing ceremony on Island of the Sun in Lake Titikaka

Throughout the world, people visit shamans and shamanas for physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. Many also go simply to receive a blessing of the body, the energy presence around the body, or the Self.

In many cultures, shamans also bless land, crops, homes, animals, children, vehicles, and events such as marriages, births, baptism, and deaths.

The blessing ceremony usually involves items considered holy such as water, fire, oil, herbs, flowers, tobacco, beads, candles, incense, or feathers. Sometimes the shaman gives the participant a holy word or mantra, or offers them a special name.
