What is a shamanic drum?

The shamanic drum is a tool of meditation and spiritual exploration used by shamans for millennia

It is a musical instrument whose deep vibration can help one access the altered state of consciousness necessary to contact the invisible world.

Indeed, it allows practitioners to connect more easily to the subtle planes of existence and the realm of spirits, to obtain information about their past, present or future.

Shamanic drums are usually made from wood and covered with animal skins. They thus produce a variety of rhythmic vibrations difficult to reproduce otherwise.

As for their direct effects, the dull sounds they produce can induce a hypnotic trance in the listener, which then allows the physical and mental body to relax completely. Thus, the mind can freely travel to previously unknown dimensions.

Shamanic drums therefore offer a door to a mystical universe filled with teachings made accessible thanks to the special sound vibrations they project.


Why do shamans use drums?

Drums are a very important tool for shamans. They have been used for centuries by these spiritual masters and their use is still very popular today.

In fact, drums can be used for a variety of purposes, but they are generally associated with meditation and mind travel.

But precisely, what is the reason for the use of drums by shamans?

First, drumming allows shamans to connect more deeply with their spirit guides.

When drumming, the steady rhythm allows the body and mind to be attuned to a vibrational frequency that promotes connection between them and what is around them.

The dull sound produced by the drum also helps shamans achieve an altered state of consciousness necessary to perform certain spiritual practices such as divination or magical healing.

Sometimes also, by playing the drum, a shaman can invoke certain spirits or creatures so that they come and communicate with him during his sessions.

Sonotherapy: drum treatment

Sonotherapy is an ancestral medical practice which consists of using sounds to relieve and heal human beings.

It is based on the principle that everything in the universe, including our bodies, is made up of vibrations. The theory behind it being that music can alter these vibrational frequencies in order to restore a natural balance in the body.

This form of holistic care dates back to ancient times, and has been transmitted to us by oral tradition over the centuries.

In short, the drum played an important role in sound therapy because it offered a powerful and deep source of musical vibrations.

The first instruments of this type were used for healing thousands of years ago, particularly among the indigenous peoples of the Amerindian continent. It is believed that they had discovered that the dull sound produced by the drums had healing properties long before the arrival of Europeans on the North American continent in the 16th century.


A tool to ground and reconnect

The shamanic drum is a powerful tool for grounding and reconnecting.

It allows those who use it to access modified states of consciousness, so that they can explore subtle worlds and communicate with particular entities (spirits, natural principles or even themselves).

The sounds of the drum can in any case bring deep physical and mental relaxation, making it an excellent tool for personal healing.

From a perspective of spiritual anchoring and rooting, learning to fully exploit the magical properties of the shamanic drum therefore makes sense.

With its help, perhaps it will be possible to find our way to a stronger connection with our spirit guides or our higher self!

Stress reduction, calm and serenity

The shamanic drum is a powerful tool for reducing stress, calming and bringing serenity.

Although it has been used for thousands of years by shamans to enter a trance and communicate with the animal or divine spirit, it is today recognized as an effective method for regaining one's inner balance.

According to modern precepts, the shamanic drum can be used for different purposes: deep relaxation, access to modified states of consciousness (EMC), initiatory journey towards our ancestral memories...

Because they know how to calm us, the vibrations of the drum allow us to connect with our intuition in order to find creative solutions to daily problems.

They also stimulate our mental concentration and promote the free flow of thought which often prevent complete relaxation of the physical and mental body.


Conclusion: let's meditate with a shamanic drum!

Meditation with a shamanic drum is an ancient practice that can be very beneficial to your health and well-being.

It helps reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus and mental clarity, strengthen spiritual connections, and connect you more deeply to the forces of nature.

Shamanic drum meditation also offers physical benefits: it stimulates the body's systems by increasing the level of certain hormones, can lead to muscle and joint relaxation, promotes restful sleep and provides a feeling of general physical relaxation.
