"I have always enjoyed working with my hands. But my hands do not do the healing work. The hand of Spirit steps in, and truly facilitates the magic for the client. I believe in giving credit where credit is due - and my credit and reverence is to the Spirits. For without them, the work would not be possible. I have never been comfortable calling myself a "healer" or "gifted" in any way - so I don't, I am just Jessica. I feel appreciative that clients have described my work that way, but those are their words. Their words are truly describing the magic they experience between themselves and the Spirits in session. I am simply just the witness and facilitator to support them in the process of healing." ~ Jessica C. Buturla-Hunter
Shamanism & Shamanic Healing
Shamanic Healing is rooted in ancient healing practices that work with Spirits, Energy, and connections to the Natural world.
The roots of Shamanism and Shamanic practices trace back to Siberia and the indigenous cultures there. Ancient ancestors practiced some form of Shamanism - or another form of Animism (this is dependent on the culture and the region) and had a deep relationship with the Earth and Nature. A form of Shamanism or Animistic practices is rooted in many cultures in society, and is still very much alive and in existence in our current modern times. Shamanic Healing focuses on healing at the core to restore balance, harmony, empowerment, and transformation, from the spiritual perspective. It is an immensely powerful, deep, and transformative form of spirituality and healing work. Shamanic Healing is its own "Animal" - it is not comparable to, and does not operate like any other form of energy healing or psychic work. Clients need to understand the process of Shamanic Healing is a collaborative process between the Client and the Spirits. The Spirits do not do all the work for you - they can only do their part. Clients must also be willing and open to work on the core of themselves, including issues, and shadow work, in addition to their attributes - for the best successful outcome of the healing in its totality. Hence, the collaborative process. The Spirits do not always follow what the Client desires, and sometimes they do. They will often bring up and reveal - the root of what needs to be healed or addressed, for your true best outcome. This can be easy or difficult, depending on what is at hand, and how willing and open the Client is truly desiring to heal. If Clients are ready and open to heal - they will get optimal results from the work, and Shamanic Healing will be an amazing ally to assist them in their process, and take them to the next level of who they really are.

"Hi Jessica, I hope you are well. I just wanted to let you know that I got a short psychic reading from a spiritualist of Native American (Cherokee) ancestry. The first thing she said to me was "You've had healing work done." I told her that I've been working with a Shamanic Healer (you) for over a year. She replied that you do "beautiful work." I very much appreciate all of the beautiful work that you do. Thank you for your honesty, kindness, integrity, and wisdom. You are a treasure. Looking forward to seeing you soon."

Power Animal Retrievals &
Helping Spirit Shamanic Healing
Each one of us has a guardian animal spirit that protects us, guides us, and assists us in our healing. This shamanic healing allows one to re-connect with or discover their connection to their Power Animal (or multiple Power Animals) and embody them to develop a personal connection to them. Some of this healing work also incorporates healing and empowerment from Spirits connected to the individual for healing purposes- who may be in Animal, Plant, Stone, Element, Mystical, or Sacred Guardian form.
Shamanic Soul Retrievals
Soul Retrieval healing restores energetic balance and wholeness, and restoration at the Soul level. When a trauma of any kind (physical, emotional, spiritual, mental) or difficult time in life occurs, a piece of our soul or life essence (known as a Soul Part) may leave the physical body. Soul Parts may also leave in cases where we give our personal power away. Soul Parts can also be taken, or stolen as well. There are numerous possibilities, reasons, and types - of Soul Loss in Shamanism. Many individuals experience Soul Loss of some type as they travel through their life journeys in different forms. Soul Retrieval is a shamanic healing that re-integrates and heals the missing Soul Part back into the individual. Clients are able to reclaim this lost essence and restore balance and self empowerment in their healing process.

Conversations with the Soul
Written by Jessica Buturla Hunter
My dearest Soul
Through timeless space you may travel
Through many worlds you may roam
I am at the doorway waiting
And I am here to welcome you home
I have known you before in lifetimes
And I will know you once again
On this journey of pathways together
Intertwined as One, we will mend
My dearest Soul, my friend.
Poetry Copyright Jessica Buturla Hunter
Shamanic DNA Healing Retrievals
DNA Healing Retrievals incorporates the highest form of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual empowerment specifically connect to and for individuals. A form of Siberian shamanic healing, this method is personalized to the client and their energetic DNA connection, and is incorporated into the body through shamanic practices. This healing method works with empowerment and healing for individuals who need an "energetic revamp", or assistance with personal power through transitions and changes physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually.
Shamanic Past Life Healing
Our Soul has many lives, and many journeys. Our Past Lives can present knowledge, understanding, lessons, or clarification as to what role that past life (or past lives) has in one's soul journey, and how it connects with your current soul journey. Jessica works with Past Lives as they present in session through a Shamanic perspective.
Shamanic Ancestral Healing
Ancestral healing is incorporated with healing of the drum to connect with the power and healing of our ancestors. This work incorporates shamanic healing to assist in removing and transforming blocks, fears, burdens, guilt, and energy that we may have unconsciously carried for our Ancestors that no longer serves us, while also connecting with the strength, love, and healing from our ancestral lines. Healing resonates seven generations back, and seven generations forward from this work. Clients are able to move forward with their destiny in a freeing and positive way.
Shamanic Mediumship & Shamanic Spirit Communication
Jessica is a Shamanic Medium - she is able to communicate with various types of helping Spirits, in addition to loved ones who are in Spirit. Please note that Jessica's Shamanic Mediumship and Spirit Communications are part of all of her healing sessions, and incorporated within them along with healing work services. Please note that mediumship does not guarantee that your loved one that is "expected" will definitely appear in a session. Jessica works with the Spirits that present at the time of the healing.
Shamanic Journeys for Divination & Guidance
If you are seeking guidance from the Helping Spirits in a particular area (or areas) this is another type of shamanic healing option for those types of inquiries. Journeys for Divination and Guidance go into the depths of an inquiry to give clarity and guidance options for clients from the Helping Spirits' intuitive perspective. Please note Divination Journeys are not the same as a "reading" or "psychic reading"; they operate from the shamanic perspective in their own unique way.
Shamanic Spiritual Counseling
Jessica is an Ordained Minister with Circle of the Sacred Earth, and also provides shamanic spiritual counseling as part of her sessions. Sessions include intimate guidance, assistance, and sharing while working with the guidance of Spirit to assist individuals in life challenges, growth, and discovery.
Extraction healing treats the spiritual aspect of illness from the energetic shamanic perspective. Extraction assists in removing intrusions, energy blockages, attachments, or "life roadblocks" from anywhere in the body, physically or energetically. The root of the blockages can be self-induced, or may have been picked up from people, places, or things. Extraction healing removes, transforms, and heals them through various shamanic practices, so clients may move forward in a clean, balanced, and renewed state.
Shamanic Spirit Attachment Removal & Shamanic Depossession
Sometimes spirits can be attracted to individuals with similar energy of the spirit, or individuals who are sensitive to energy or spirits in general. Attachments can also happen for other various reasons and circumstances. In an attachment situation, the spirit and/or entity is attempting to use the energy of the individual for various reasons. The individual affected may experience symptoms in behavior, emotions, or physical symptoms that are not normal to them as a result of the attachment. If left unattended, some of these cases may progress into a form of some type of possession. Attachments may also occur for various reasons in connection to entities which are not human. These types of attachments may also result in various forms of possession, that may express in different forms. Shamanic healing techniques are incorporated to balance the individual and remove the attachment, to heal and balance all involved. Jessica has extensive training and experience working with difficult cases, and has worked on a variety of cases involving various types of entities and attachments.
Shamanic Curse Unraveling & Sorcery Unraveling
Curse Unraveling: A shamanic healing that works to break and resolve the pattern of Curse work. Curses can be both intentionally or even unintentionally passed onto individuals. They can create blockages, bad luck, chronic illness, physical, emotional, or manifestation issues for those affected. These hindrances can be passed down the family line, or affect a specific individual on a local level. This shamanic healing breaks the energetic connection and heals all individuals involved for balance, harmony, and peace, with resolution and removal of the original source of the curse.
Sorcery Unraveling: A shamanic healing that works to break and resolve Sorcery work. Sorcery work is when an individual is purposefully initiating, sending, and manipulating energy, and/or spirit(s) - with an unethical intent of directing it towards and harming another individual, place, or thing, on some level; it is a form of dark work and black magic. Sorcery exists in many forms in many cultures. Sorcery unraveling is a form of shamanic healing to break, clear, and resolve this type of issue and connection.
Shamanic Psychopomp Healing
Shamanic healing that assists individuals who are in the process of transition, or at the time of transition, in the crossing of the Soul and Soul release. Shamanic practices and healing ceremonial work is incorporated to assist the process. This healing can be incorporated for those suffering from a terminal illness, who are also in the dying process. It is also used to heal and release Spirits who have been bound to a property, space, or land to cross them over to the other side with balance, harmony, and healing resolution.

Professional Space Clearing
Professional Shamanic Space Clearing and Blessings - for Homes, Land, Businesses, or Spaces
Space Clearing and Blessing work assists in clearing out blockages, psychic energies, imprints of traumas, and / or Spirits, and much more that may be bound or in, a home, space, or property. Blessing work is also incorporated in conjunction with cleansing work to promote peace, harmony, balance, and protection. Space Clearing work - is an involved process, and requires a lot of experience and training to facilitate it. It is often assumed that just using "sage" or smudging of some type is sufficient to clear or address a spiritual problem, and this is often mistaken by many as a "space clearing". In many cases, this will not resolve a spiritual or paranormal problem completely, and in some cases this may actually exacerbate an issue. Tampering with spiritual work or practices without proper professional training or experience (even if the individual has good intentions) in an attempt to "space clear" also can often lead to further energetic and spiritual problems, or exacerbations of problems as well on many, many levels. Legitimate Space Clearing work is serious and in-depth and it can be a very multi-faceted and involved process. If not facilitated appropriately, it can also be potentially very spiritually dangerous, depending on the type of issue or issues present. This is why it is recommended to have a professional who has the specific training, extended experience, and background specifically in space clearing work - to come in to facilitate that type of work if it is needed, or desired. Jessica has both extensive training and experience in professional space clearing work. She has facilitated space clearing work on many properties ranging from new construction, to more involved cases, such as older properties with significant history and trauma. She also has experience in working with many cases involving various forms of paranormal activity, including cases involving various types of spirits and entities. Jessica has a compassionate approach to the cleansing process that strives to promote a balance for all involved. She facilitates cleanses for private homes, land, or spaces, in addition to businesses in the New England area - CT, NY, MA, RI.

Scheduling & Appointment Information
for Space Clearings & Legal Ceremonies
Professional Space Clearings & Blessings
For Homes, Personal Spaces, Land, or Businesses
Space Clearing & Blessing work includes all preparation, travel time, the actual cleansing and blessing, an extensive summary of what transpired during the cleansing, and recommendations for clients. The amount of session time for a space clearing and cleansing can vary, and depends on many factors in each case. Some cases may involve a few hours - while some, may involve the entire day. Each case is unique and case specific, so this really does depends on multiple factors. Space Clearing work is very intricate and thorough, and involves a significant amount of time, work, and preparation to ensure each client receives quality work.
If you are interested in a scheduling or inquiring about a Space Clearing, Jessica's protocol is as follows:
1. Space Clearing Assessment: In order to determine what is specifically involved in your Space Clearing, Jessica will do a thorough and detailed Assessment. During the Assessment, she will be able to identify and analyze the type and amount of clearing work that is needed and what is involved, and specifically identify and summarize all of the energetic, spiritual, and psychic aspects that are present (on multiple levels). She will also analyze the amount of time the actual Space Clearing work will take, and what the specific fee will be for your case for the actual Space Clearing work. Space Clearing fees are specialized to each case, as no two Space Clearings are exactly alike, or have the same physical or spiritual components or factors involved. The Space Clearing Assessment fee is $200.00. Space Clearing Assessments are scheduled by Appointment. Contact Jessica to schedule an Assessment if you are interested in having a Space Clearing. Assessments can be done by phone, or in person, depending on the case at hand.
2. The actual Space Clearing itself, is scheduled by Appointment - after a Space Clearing Assessment has been completed.
After a completed Assessment, clients can then decide if they would like to move forward to schedule an Appointment for the actual Space Clearing work to be done. In the event that a client decides to schedule the Space Clearing Appointment after the Assessment, Jessica will then deduct / discount the Assessment fee ($200) off of the total actual Space Clearing work fee on the date of the Space Clearing Appointment.
