I've included the following words by Sandra Ingerman, a well-known author, and respected teacher in Shamanic studies as my answer:
"One of the beauties of shamanism, it's not just about healing as I've been talking about power loss, soul loss, intrusions and possessing spirits, but shamanism is a way of life. The practice of shamanism includes changing how we think, changing how we daydream, bringing gratitude practices into our life, spending more time in nature and looking at how we can honor and respect nature. And as we're beings of nature ourselves, what changes do we need to make in our life so that we start to honor and respect ourselves and show self-love for our self just like we do for the planet? Those are some of the individual ways that shamans work with healing. There's also another way that shamans work which is really where my work has evolved too is when you look at some shamanic cultures around the world, shamans actually work with radiating light. As they radiate light like a star in the night sky or the sun during the day, it actually stimulates the spiritual light of the client to start flowing through their own body. That uplifts them and heals them in the process without actually not having to perform any kind of healing method at all. It's also the way that working to reverse how people use spiritual methods to reverse environmental pollution and to heal the planet right now is through radiating light."
