munayni


shamanic healing

munayni - love & reciprocity

munayni is the unification of two Quechua words,
munay which means love or to love or ‘I love you as you are’
and ayni which means reciprocity, or being in the right relationship with everything and everyone, including ourselves.

A bit about myself

Daniel Donciu

I was trained in the Andean Q’ero Paqo or Inka shamanic tradition, the tradition of the shamans that live high in the Andean mountains. Inka shamanism is a natural medicine and does not involve the ingestion or the injection of any substances. My teacher and one of my mentors is Rajinder Singh. He runs the Munay Centre of Shamanic Studies in Cork, Ireland.
While most of my training was done in Cork I have also attened shamanic ceremonies that were conducted in Peru by Dona Agustina, Don Hernan and Don Sebastian. Don Sebastian and Dona Agustina are two of the eldest Q’ero Paqos (shamans). They have been spreading the Inka shamanic teachings all over the world.
My first shamanic experience took place in Peru, where I have attended shamanic ceremonies conducted by Don Howard Lawler, Don Rober and Dona Eliana at Spirit Quest Sanctuary

Shamanic Healing

Shamans believe that everything is energy. We work to bring balance to the physical and emotional body using ancient teachings. We believe in restoring balance to the body and also believe that with balance comes the body’s natural ability to regenerate, heal and rejuvenate. In fact, one of the principles of shamanic medicine is that by extracting energies that do not belong in the body, illness goes away. We believe that trauma and other forms of energy can influence the physical body in such ways that it no longer functions properly. Therefore illnesses like depression and anxiety, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, all forms of addictions and other types of ailments can be caused by energies that we carry with us. The shamanic work consists of identifying these energies that create emotional and physical discomfort within the body and gently extracting them.

As mentioned above, I was trained in the Andean Q'ero Shamanic tradition. The Q'ero are the last descendants of the Inka Civillisation. When the Conquistador invaded Peru in the 16th century they fled to live high in the Andes mountains and were able to maintain the Q'ero knowledge and Shamanic tradition dating back thousands of years. These traditions and their ancient medicine ways, passed from generation to generation, are now being shared with the modern world. Q'ero Shamans believe it is paramount to be in the right relationship with Mother Earth, our families, our friends, our work, and each person and everything we interact with, not just those we love, but to be in right relationship with every part of our lives, including ourselves. This is what it means to live in ayni, to live in reciprocity.

Private shamanic healing sessions

    Throughout our lives we have all been through stressful situations. Some of these situations have left a mark on us. These marks can influence our day to day life and can be found in the reactions that we have in different situations.
    During our childhood we have all been taught by parents, grandparents and our loved ones or by the ones responsible to take care of us. We have learned or even started to copy some of their behaviours and reactions sometimes without even knowing. We use all these behaviours, most of them deeply rooted in our subcouncious, during situations that happen in our day to day life, weather they serve us or not.
    The private healing sessions are meant to identify these stressful situations that have left a mark on us and the behaviours that we have gathered throughout our lives that make us react to situations instead of acting to them and to identify the energies associated with them in the body. Once these energies are identified we work to gently extract them from the body.
    Often, during a private healing session, we work to gently extract other types of energies that we identify as being present in the body. These energies do not belong naturally in the body.
    Shamans believe that, once these energies mentioned above, energies that do not belong naturally in the body, start to be extracted from our body, the body’s natural ability to heal, regenerate and rejuvenate begins to increase considerably.

Some of the stressful situations that can leave an energetic imprint, an energetic mark in our bodies can be:
- death of a loved one, family member, lover, friend, pet, etc
- being separated from a loved one, family member, lover, friend, pet, etc
- abuse (physical and/or emotional)
- domestic or family violence, dating violence
- community violence (shooting, mugging, burglary, assault, bullying)
- accidents (car accidents, work accidents, etc.)
- abandonment
- living in constant fear
- living with physical pain
- major surgery or life-threatening illness
- serious injury
- living in constant stress
- witnessing a natural disaster (hurricane, flood, fire, earthquake, tsunami, land slide, etc)
- witnessing a death
- war or political violence (civil war, terrorism, refugee)
- being kept in a location or space against one’s will
- prison stay
- not being valued
- not being listened to
- not being able to express yourself (feelings, thoughts, etc.) for a prolonged period of time

    It is important to understand that we are all different, or better said unique. That being said, a situation that causes an energetic imprint for one person can sometimes cause no energetic imprint for another person. From this we can conclude that, even situations considered normal to most of us can cause energetic imprints.
    During a private healing session we also work to detach you from these energetic imprints caused by stressful situations or deeply rooted behaviours or other forms of energy so that, in the future, your life and your body will not be influenced or informed by them anymore.
    We work with people that suffer with additions, people that suffer from anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, unexplained fears (fear of water, fear of fire), PTSD, hormonal imbalances and many other forms of imbalances in the physical and emotional body. We also work with people that feel like they do not belong, like they do not have a place in this world, that feel like they are not themselves or feel like they do not have a purpose, people that can not love or can not feel anymore.
    A private shamanic healing session is a one to one session that typically lasts about an hour and a half. The session addresses, in most cases, only one issue. The shamanic practitioner first engages with the client in a friendly chat, talking about what it is that the client is being troubled by. After that the healing session can begin. The client is asked to lay on a massage bed, being fully clothed and covered with blankets for the whole duration of the session. The client is asked to close their eyes during the session in order not to be distracted. Inka shamans work with stones, so most of the time there will be stones placed on the clients body during a private healing session. During the session the shamanic practitioner touches the head of the client for a couple of times and at the end of the session he touches once both clients feet, just above the client’s ankles.
    Shamanism works at a very deep energetic level. Most of the clients experience a deep physical release during the healing session and also say that they feel lighter in their bodies after a healing session. Other clients might experience drowsiness and fatigue after a healing session. This is normal and there is nothing to worry about. Fatigue and drowsiness are signs that the physical body is catching up with the energetic body, with the changes in the energetic body that happened during the session.
    Sometimes clients fall asleep during the sessions. Even so, the work that we do during the session has very powerful effects, sometimes even more powerful than when not falling asleep.
    Most clients find the private healing sessions to be very relaxing. Sometimes though, during the session, a client can experience strong emotions, sometimes even overwhelming emotions. It is very important to understand that during the whole healing session you will be in a safe environment, an environment where you are free to express your emotions, feelings and thoughts. Also it is very important to understand that you will be supported and guided throughout the session. In case the emotions that you are experiencing become too overwhelming we can take a break in order to let the body rest and the mind calm. You will also be supported after the session, either online or by phone.

Space/House Clearing

    As shamans believe that everything is energy we also do believe that sometimes energies can take shelter in the places that we live or we work, just as they can take shelter in our bodies. If, for whatever reason you feel uncomfortable in your home or at the office, you feel drained or angry for no apparent reason, you can not sleep well or just feel like something is wrong, then it might be that the space you are in is also a shelter for energies that might affect you. In shamanic work we gently release these energies that are sharing the same space with you so that you can enjoy an energetically clear home or office where you can relax, focus, work and have fun and most importantly where you can be yourself.

Despacho Ceremony

    A Despacho Ceremony is a ceremony where we give thanks to the Spirit world and we pray. All our thanks and prayers are gathered in an offering that we bring to Spirit which at the end of the ceremony will either be burned, berried or placed in a running river. Despacho Ceremonies are held any time but they are mostly recommended when moving into a new house, when getting married, when starting a new business, when having a new baby or when you feel like a very important event is happening and you wish to honour that event by giving thanks and praying.

Fire Ceremonies

    A fire ceremony is an honouring of nature and its forces, it is also a way for people to pray for what they wish for in their life. It is also a way in which we pray for the Earth. Fire ceremonies are typically done at a full moon or new moon.

A bit of my own healing journey

Years ago, before I started the shamanic work, I was suffering from depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue, insomnia, dizziness, nausea and other physical issues that would come and go but were making my life almost impossible. I also had a lot of anger issues, I was being very defensive in any argument or conversation that I had and I was pretty much angry and envious at everyone. I remember being so anxious that sometimes I could barely go to work. When I started the shamanic work I did not expect for any change at all but with time the work that I did started to make a difference for me. The changes were subtle but very stable. I started to sleep better and my anxiety had diminished, until finally went away. The nausea also went away and the anger issues completely faded. The depression was the last to go. The shamanic work has also helped me to become happier, to be a better person, to listen more to others, to be more compassionate and understanding, to be forgiving and non-judgemental and to feel better and lighter in my own body. It has helped me find my way through life, gave me a purpose, and a lot of insights on how to live my life, how to treat myself and others and how my relationships with everything and everyone that I interact need to be in order for me to be happy and to be at peace. It has also helped me to be less hard on myself and others and to be responsible for my actions and decisions. I have also stopped blaming others for the things that are happening with me. The shamanic work has been and still is an open chapter in my life as I am still practicing it regularly on myself. I have healed a lot of trauma, I have let go of a lot of coping mechanisms and I am not playing any roles or wearing any masks, I am just being closer to myself each and every day. All the things mentioned above have inspired me to work with other people that would like to experience the same things that I did and change their lifes.

Testimonials

  • The healing session that I had with Daniel changed my life for the greatest good. It reset and realigned the path I had deviated from. I was part of someone else's plan and not my own. In other words the path I was walking was one of less empowerment. The session with Daniel was intense. I allowed myself to be guided by his work. At first he extracted an energy that I was carrying which did not belong to me. I opened my eyes still astonished to this day as to how it was possible this is my body. I had so much room in my body, so much space, after the extraction, that it was like waking up from a dream. I had not known how long I was asleep for. It was an intense awakening. I began to formulate where I had obtained the energy that was not my own, not that it was incredibly important. Yet it was so intriguing and important for my understanding. Then the aligning session began. It dove to the deep recesses of my traumas locked in my solar plexus. My heart felt it all along the way. I feel like I am flower blooming continuously since that healing session. The power and gentle workings with Daniel released the healer waiting to see the light in my being. Waiting for the curtains to be drawn and a new day to be dawned. I could have waited ten lifetimes and not known I was waiting. I am forever filled with gratitude for Daniel to have given his time and love to this healing. I hope so many more people receive it and can learn their own magnificent potential so not easy to fathom in a world with pain not let go of yet.

    Louise

  • Daniel first made me feel comfortable and relaxed. He started working and I felt as if I had a river of energy flowing inside. The energy travelled all around me and soon I had tears rolling down my cheeks but I wasn't sad, it was as if the excess of that energy had to come out somehow. Afterwards I felt heavy, relaxed and aligned
