Testimonials for Barbara Swift’s Life Coaching & Shamanic Healing

It is truly remarkable how much energy, optimism and enjoyment I now derive from my daily activities...

This is a testimonial to the two recent shamanic sessions I received from you in hopes of transforming my personal isolationist, anxiety-ridden behavior patterns. As you rightly pointed out, my “old self” is governed by my interactions with my abusive, alcoholic father, which generated patterns of avoidance behavior, isolationism, and alcoholic self—destruction. With your assistance and your shaman treatments, I have embarked on a journey governed by my new totem, the wolf, and the integration of an earlier youth self who was in tune with the natural environment surrounding him, free from the trappings of the alcoholic self.

I am now approaching my personal and professional relationships with newly found vigor and optimism, free of anxiety and the desire to isolate. It is truly remarkable how much energy, optimism and enjoyment I now derive from my daily activities, and I ascribe this exclusively to the healing sessions I received from you.

I highly recommend your treatments to anyone who is sincerely interested in transforming their “old self” into a new one, free of the old behavior patterns governed by the damaging, negative reinforcement one received in early childhood.


I did go into this with skepticism, but I was made a believer.

My shamanic healing experience has been profound. I was not sure what to expect, but I was not going to judge what was to happen or how I was going to grow from the event. Part of me felt silly doing this type of healing practice, but, I decided I was not putting a negative spin on it and I was going to “go for it” with all my heart.

While undergoing the healing, I felt deep emotional release. Visions of painful childhood experiences went flashing across my mind. Then, what felt like a whirlpool of energy lifted them out of me and away. The results from this healing unfolded slowly, over time. I noticed that I was not bothered by particular situations or people. Certain emotional triggers were gone. I felt lighter, so to speak, after time. Old beliefs and handicaps I have carried with me were removed. I was free.

Barbara made me feel safe, protected and loved. She carried me through two healing sessions. Each time I felt supported and uplifted. I did go into this with skepticism, but I was made a believer.

Registered Nurse

My dear friend Barbara offered to do a healing session for my foot...

For two years I walked around on a broken foot that wouldn’t heal, after having had two major reconstructive surgeries. The ankle bone refused to fuse. Every three months I had an X-ray, and nothing changed at all. My outstanding orthopedic surgeon, for whom I had great love and respect, was pretty devastated by the outcome, and, with caring and compassion, told me that it just wasn’t going to heal. She said she could try stem cell treatment but it would likely fuse the ankle in place, and there would be no range of motion. I decided against that and walked around, first on Vicodin, then Motrin, in pain, limping my way through work and life. I wasn’t able to do the things I love, like walking in nature, hiking, playing with my grandbaby.

My dear friend Barbara offered to do a healing session for my foot, and for the healing of painful, old emotional wounds. At first, because I had never been exposed to the concept of energy healing, I felt skeptical, yet at the same time a little excited about what this could possibly do. After two energy healing sessions with Barbara, I felt better and lighter emotionally; and 5 weeks later, I realized I was no longer having daily foot pain, wasn’t taking any medication, and was walking without a limp. I went back to my surgeon, she did an X-ray of my foot, and she said the bone looked completely healed, and said she didn’t have any explanation for it.

I’m so grateful to have my foot and my life back, and to be able to do the things I love. I realize, too, that I had been crippled not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. When I released the emotional pain of the past, it made space for healing all of me.

It is truly a gift to work with Barbara – and I highly recommend her as a practitioner of health and healing.
