Where did Shamanic De-armoring Originate?


IxchelShamanic De-armoring originated in the ancient ceremonial healing ways of the Twisted Hairs Elders, a lineage of medicine men and women from all across the Americas. The Twisted Hairs elders are known as “dreamers,” holding open a space within the collective conscious that allows those who are willing to release their past pain and surrender their fears for the future to awaken within the present moment. Their “dream,” also known as the Rainbow Bridge Prophecies, has long foretold that a time would come when the people would need help to release their bonds (or armoring) in order to enter the Fifth World of Humans. The time for this is NOW. Recapitulated Shamanic De-armoring was brought forward as a means to assist in this great awakening.

De-armoring was traditionally performed by several “shaker” shaman (Twisted Hairs Grandmothers) who used their hands to vibrate the body while specific pressure points were stimulated. Thunder Strikes, a Twisted Hairs elder, teacher, and shamanic counselor, has modernized this ancient ceremony by combining the old ways with current technology and Reichian bio-energetics.

basketThunder Strikes saw the need for people to fully release their karmic patterns of pain so that they could step into the Fifth World, free to express their individual genius. His brilliant mind and fierce warrior heart set to work to find a solution. Guided by the Twisted Hairs Grandmothers every step of the way, he pioneered the Recapitulated Shamanic De-armoring (RSD) in 1995. Knowing that this needed to be available to any and all seekers within dharma, Thunder Strikes trained a small team of practitioners in the technique and art of Shamanic De-armoring.

Thunder Strikes is a Naqual Elder of the Twisted Hairs of Turtle Island, Heyokah War Chief, Medicine Man, Shaman, Sorcerer and Healer. The Twisted Hairs formed in 1254 AD as an intertribal medicine and sorcery society on the American continent, which continues today as an active and uninterrupted lineage.

Thunder Strikes is an inductee and a voting member of the Sokeship Council of the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame and currently carries the ranks of 10th Degree Black belt in Shorinji-Ryu Jiu-Jitsu, Shorei-Ryu Kenpo Karate and Chulukua-Ryu. He was the World Jiu-Jitsu Champion from 1967 to 1970.
