                  Sommer Leigh ~ Starlite Shaman

Starlite Shaman is like many of us. She has experienced a lot of pain in her early years. As a result of healing this pain & realizing it was part of her wisdom walk for her soul promise, she is known to have taken the path of the wounded healer.

She is called on because she is one who sees with her heart. She is one who knows. 

Sommer Leigh saw the unknown and felt the unseen, as a very young child. Through creative passages, she developed ways of communicating with nature spirits, animal helpers & angelic beings. During her school years, she preferred reading books on seeing auras and telepathy, over typical fashion magazines and sports. She knew there was more than what met the human eyes and she wanted to learn what wasn't being taught at schoolShe shared her exquisite dreams, visions and journeys of shape shifting, dancing fairies, talking animals, and singing plants, with her friends. She was so excited to share all the divinatory & empowerment she was receiving from other worlds. What she experienced, through her journeys to these non-ordinary places was not "normal".  It was her salvation during her childhood. 

As a child, she thought these primal journeys were a regular part of everyone's life.  Sommer often became confused, when those around her didn't understand what she was talking about. She was surprised when others stated they were not having these experiencesEventually, as she got older, she learned to keep these types of experiences to herself. Her heart remained curious and open. 

As a mid-teen, Sommer Leigh became a ward of the state, as a result of parental absence. She was court appointed to receive counseling, to help her cope with her childhood traumas. Her therapist was very progressive and held a background in shamanism herself. Eventually, she began to help Sommer to cultivate a relationship with loving compassionate spirits, in a more conscious and controlled way. 

Continuing therapy after her return from NYC during her mid 20's, Sommer Leigh spoke openly and fondly of her continued interests and experiences with shamanism. One day in 2001, her therapist gifted her the book 'Shaman Healer Sage' by Alberto Villoldo. Fascinated by the teachings, Sommer Leigh was inspired to utilize the shamanic methods in her practice, as a bodyworker. Being witness to how soul power assisted in physical healing, Sommer Leigh continued along the path of shamanism. 

Sommer Leigh has been taught in many ways over her years of training. Though she began learning innately as a child, she has also learned through connecting to her Native American & Irish ancestral lineage. Through years of practice, cultivating communication systems, and self-discipline, she's learned to tune in, to hear the voices of the land. Sommer Leigh has meaningful relations with her ancestry, Mother Earth and her gatekeepers. She listens. 

Sommer Leigh has a family of spirit helpers and teachers which she has learned from, gained empowerment and healed through. She testifies to their power, from years of witnessing radical results. She believes.

When matters of the soul show up, Sommer can deeply relate, as a result of her own walk. She sees. She knows. With loving kindness and compassion, she responds.

The empowerment one receives through shamanism, transforms the heart and heals the soul. Starlite Shaman has mastered being the hollow bone, so all knowing compassionate beings, and one's soul counsel, can work through her. 

Sommer Leigh has also been initiated into shamanism. She has received passage rites and rituals, in cultural and core teachings.  This happened organically over the years, as she traveled across the US and into Central America. These blessings are part of the medicine that she carries. She knows this is her path and her walk tells the story of how she has been chosen to become the Starlite Shaman.

 

Sommer Leigh also seeks out shamanic teachings.  In 2019 Sommer's spirit helpers guided her to Michael Harner's organization, The Foundation of Shamanic Studies. Sommer Leigh is a certified core shamanic practitioner and a  Harner Shamanic Counselor, through FSS. 

Sommer Leigh walks in the lite of her soul work, as the Starlite Shaman. With a radiant smile, she proclaims the power utilized in healings is not hers alone, but is sourced through her spirit helpers and the soul counsel of the individual she is assisting. Her heart and soul are indeed an open channel, and she tunes into the wisdom that is within all around us, as a Starlite Shaman.

"My soul was calling for something...I wasn't sure exactly what it needed."

 We talked and Sommer knew I needed a soul retrieval. I hid and tucked away and cried so many tears wanting to find the answers, wanting to do the work... I had my Soul Retrieval with Sommer on Friday. It definitely was the complete journey from brokenness and pain to sweetly listening to my guides and spirit animal and connecting exactly how I needed. Just leaving I felt more whole and confident and protected and surrounded by Love. Thank you Sommer you are a blessing. I feel light, and My son told me I shine and could see and feel the difference and tells me daily."
