An Interview of Katherine Skaggs by Diane of Differing Together

March 2021

Enjoy a hearty conversation on shamanism between Diane of Differing Together and Katherine Skaggs is an Intuitive, Visionary Artist, Author, Spiritual Guide and Teacher, Shamanic Practitioner, and Soul Painter. Katherine found the world of metaphysics and all things spiritual in the early 80s. In 2007 Katherine stepped upon the symbiotic path of Shamanism — studying, apprenticing, and sitting in many years of healing ceremonies with Shamans worldwide. She now brings these universal, multi-cultural teachings and practices to you from her heart-centered voice of personal experience. Katherine Skaggs' Website: https://katherineskaggs.com Order Katherine's Book: https://www.artistshamanhealersage.com

Katherine has been on her spiritual path since her mid 20s when she sought healing and greater understanding for her spiritual self as she stepped away from traditional religion as she had known it. The world of metaphysics, dream interpretation, symbolism and symbol systems, meditation, and mystical, spiritual practices brought her into a place of greater balance and harmony. And as life unfolded various challenges arose, giving the opportunity for more healing. Katherine tells of a dark night of the soul (or two), that gave way to shamanic death and dismemberment. The difficult yet soul expansive experiences ultimately led Katherine to the world of shamanism in a quest to find greater healing, understanding, and balance.

Enjoy this delightful conversation with Diane and Katherine. You will learn more about shamanism and how it can be beneficial to your life. Sit back and enjoy a time of story telling, taken from Katherine's own personal experiences upon the path that offer insight and practical wisdom for life's journey.

Join shamanic practitioner and author, artist Katherine Skaggs to learn about No Smoke Smudging with Flower Water.

Katherine will teach you about Agua de Florida, as well as the flower waters made from palo santo, tobacco, kananga, rose, and orange to clean and clear your space, and that of others. You will also learn about a pusanga or love potion, and how to use that to attract blessings, love, and good fortune.

Flower water is an excellent way to smudge when you can't burn smudge and use smoke to clear. With flower waters plant medicines are infused into alcohol and water, prayed with and sung into, used with intention, to clean your energy, raise your frequency, clear trauma and fear, as well as to bless and bring protection.

Agua de Florida water is the go to for shamans in Peru, and many places in the world. It is a mixture of a variety of plants. Many shamans, shamanic practitioners, and medicine people will pray into this flower water for general or specific prayers to heal and to clear bad energy (Hucha as the Q'ero call it), and to bring in uplifting energies of the plant spirit medicines as well as the prayers and intentions of the practitioner. 

Using flower water as a daily smudge is an excellent way to keep your energy high, and to clean away worry, fear, and fright that is rampant in our world today. 

Open your flower water, then as with all your allies, thank it for its powerful energies that are good in cleaning energy and raising your vibration, pray into it with a heart centered prayer and intention for wellness, shift, balance, love, peace, etc. Then pour some into the palms of your hands, rubbing your hands together, and then bringing up to breathe in deeply three times. Do so gently as this is very strong with alcohol and can be intense.

Once you have breathed in the flower water, use your hands to move through your energy field, above your crown, to the back of your neck, and behind you (intentionally sending to your heart and all of your back), and through your front, sending to your third eye to awaken your vision, to your throat to express your creativity and truth, to your heart for full heartedness, to your solar plexus to activate your power, to your 2nd chakra to support your creativity and intuition, and to your root, that you are grounded in this world with love. Place your hands onto any parts of your body that need extra healing and attention, intentionally sending this energy deep into your physical body and cellular structure to receive this energy and come back into balance. Use your hands and imagination to then send out into your room, to your animals, your loved ones, your land, to your work place, and to the world at large for healing and peace. 

You can do a blessing offering anytime with this practice to clear, to bless, and to give gratitude. Give without condition. Those who would like to receive will do so in their right timing.

Other flower waters you can use are Palo Santo, Tobacco, Kananga, Rose, Orange, Lavender, and any assortment of home made flower waters, such as the pusanga/love potion. 

I also have another company I carry that makes other plant medicine flower waters. Some that she creates are made from White Sage, Clary Sage, Sweetgrass, and Cedar to name a few. She makes an amazing Palo Santo mist that is one of my favorite.

Join author, artist, shamanic practitioner, and teacher Katherine Skaggs to learn more about the Artist Shaman Healer Sage shamanic guide book, and how it can support you in living a more harmonious life.

Shamanism is an ancient spiritual practice that is a way of living life in harmony in the woven web of life, where everything from our inner, spiritual selves is connected to every part of our outer reality. Understanding the fabric of the invisible world known as the spirit world or Non-ordinary reality, and the visible world we call life also known as the ordinary reality, gives us a clue as to why we are here and how to navigate with clarity of intention, practices, ritual, and ceremony. We are sacred beings on an earth walk, meant to live a sacred life.

Today our modern world is confusing, chaotic, and often times fueled by fear and trauma. How do you show up amidst the crazy to live in joy and harmony? Many are struggling to find happiness with the ever changing landscape, seemingly controlled by forces outside of ourselves. Where do you turn and how do you find peace again?

Within the world of shamanism is a treasure trove of timeless wisdom, universal laws and truths, as well as shamanic mapping systems that give you direction to awakening as a conscious dreamer within the chaos of what might be a nightmare rather than a beautiful dream. Take back your power with ancient systems of harmony for creating greater joy, health, abundance, and wellness for your self, as well as for your family, community, and global tribe at large.

Within the Artist Shaman Healer Sage book you will learn about shamanic truths shared around the globe that are universal, regardless of the time, place or tribe you have incarnated into; you will be given shamanic practices for grounding, cleaning energy, working with plant spirits, elementals, guides, allies, ancestors, spirit animals, and angels, altar work and prayer, smoke baths and flower water medicines, working the medicine wheel, and awakening the Artist, Shaman, Healer, and Sage that lives within your very being. This is a hands on, direct experience shamanic guide that is both deeply practical and transcendently spiritual.

Great Spirit gave us everything we need to become aligned with our true spiritual essence that we may live a beautiful life on earth, integrated and harmonious.

Praying with Tobacco is for Artist Shaman Healer Sage Grads and Approved Shamanic Explorers

Praying with Sacred Tobacco
Saturday, March 10th
9am to 3pm

Pre-requisite: ASHS Course I, or other Advanced Shamanic Work approved by Katherine

Connect with the spirit and essence of Tobacco in sacred ceremony and ritual. In this day of retreat, work with this sacred plant in silence, fasting and prayer. You will learn to invoke  the spirt of tobacco as your ally and as a powerful shamanic tool in your everyday life for clearing, cleaning and healing. Create a sacred relationship with tobacco, learning also to call it in for protection, and for assistance in creating greater boundaries and integrity in all areas of your life.

Tobacco is a sacred plant used by many indigenous peoples around the world. The tobacco we will work with is from the jungles of Peru. It is pure nicotine rustica, and is used by Peruvian shamans for clearing low frequency energies, such as trauma, unpleasant fear patterns and emotions. It is also used for protection and greatly assists sensitive, empathic people when used consciously as an ally, through prayer and with intention.

This is a one-day prayerful diet with tobacco, with an opportunity to get to know it better as a spirit ally and powerful healing tool. You learn to smoke it prayerfully and do not inhale the smoke. You can also opt in to pray with it as an ally and not smoke it, as the relationship is not dependent on smoking it, but on how you honor it and call it in as a spirit ally.

Katherine Skaggs, Shamanic Practitioner
Katherine Skaggs is a shamanic practitioner who has trained extensively since 2007 with the Shipibo shamanic traditions from the Amazon jungles of Peru. In her apprenticeship she has dieted with various plants from the jungle that assist energetically, spiritually and physically. The first plant to diet with is Tobacco. The Spirit of Tobacco is a masculine energy and a fire medicine.

"To get to know this plant, the shamans create a fresh pressed drink out the the leaves of the tobacco plant. Each day the shamans pray into the plant drink with prayers for the medicine to assist us, and for us to become allies with it and its powers. They would also put prayers into three mapacchos for us to work with each day. A mapaccho looks like a cigarette, but is not, as it is pure tobacco and only meant for prayerful use. Then we would pray into our tobacco drink (or whatever plant we were working with), and drink it down. We would then rest, fast, pray and dream during the day. We began at dawn and were in ceremony until 3pm. Then we could break our fast. We did this for 7 days, as that is the minimum time for the sacred relationship to be created, and for the plant to lay its energy matrix into our field."

Tobacco is sacred and not meant to be used mindlessly. It knows your prayers and will go to work for you if you hold it in its sacredness. And if you disrespect it, it will kill you!
