The shaman will usually first take time and focus to enter a trance state to make the journey to connect with the spirit world. Special music or rituals may be used to help the shaman achieve this state. Once in contact with the spirits, the shaman invokes them to gather information and to help in the healing process, removing and clearing blocked energy.
