Four months ago, I descended upon the desert in Sedona and had a crazy experience with a shamanic healer and soul guide – an experience that I highlighted in this 20 minute Facebook video that I filmed afterwards.
The healer was named “Anahata Ananda”. Blending the compassion and tenderness of an Angel and the wisdom and strength of a Shaman, Anahata guides profound journeys of healing and awakening. Sedona's prominent Shamanic Healer and Soul Guide artfully integrate the fields of spirituality, energy healing, self-empowerment, shamanic teachings, emotional release, quantum manifestation, couple/family dynamics and visualization techniques.
Those seeking spiritual awakening, transformational healing, soul guidance, relationship counseling or body/mind/soul rejuvenation choose from a wide range of private tailored sessions, sacred land journeys, inspirational workshops, group retreats or online courses. Anahata is the founder of Shamangelic Healing based in Sedona, Arizona making this the perfect setting for healing and expansion. For detailed descriptions of her Shamangelic healing services visit ShamangelicHealing.com.

In Sedona now. What is the name of the place for the Chocolate ceremony?
Thank you Ben for this podcast which brought me to Anahata. I was fortunate to have a breathwork session with her today and the experience blew my mind. She is incredible. Thank you
Its a journey for sure and no doubt is offering up the lessons that we need to learn from, even if we didn’t sign up for the class. I sympathize and completely acknowledge that feeling of holding on to who I was, what I had worked so hard to build and how I was seen by others when I was at my fittest and doing epic sh*t participating in races/events that really tested me. Then I got hurt during a 36hr Ultimate Suck event. One I had trained many, many hours and very hard for. It was to be my best accomplishment to date. My training had to take a major downturn to heal, my events became non-existing and I had to take a break from sharing my ‘accomplishments’. Because sharing mental accomplishments isn’t quite as exciting as crushing a 12hr night time desert Suck at the age of 50. People no longer have as many opportunities to share positive feedback after my completing races/events. I didn’t realize i was thriving off of the praise as a form of ‘soul food’. I have had to recalibrate what is important and actually focus on who I am and what I am, because I found myself really, really low and in a place I truly didn’t want to be. Fitness is still super important, but I’m entering into a more balanced place in my life that I’m finding is kind of a cool place to be. Its been bumpy, but the road was one i needed to travel. There is always the plan, then there is what happens. Just go with it, you might find the road leads you to a pretty cool place. Best of Success Ben!
Ben. Thank u so much for this Shamanangelic podcast. This resonated with me so much. U r one bad ass guy and she is one real fuckin deal 👍🏽❤️ Thanks so much. Beautiful couple coverage on good/bad on plant medicine
Great podcast again Ben. You are a personal trainer after my own heart. I’m a natural bodybuilder and PT. I came across your work accidentally over 6 months ago. My thoughts :- wow this guy is just like me!. (without trying to sound obnoxious) Very refreshing to find someone breaking the mould and talking about this stuff (out loud) and everything else you talk about. Keep up the [more than] superb work..

I still have a hard time discerning whether or not the healing practices you discuss coincide with our spiritual beliefs as Christians or if they are actually delving into the demonic realm and possibly opening up space for negative, evil energies. How do you personally rectify or clarify this? How do you determine whether or not it’s God’ healing power or the cunning Devil leading you down a dark path? I listened to your other podcast with the preacher and really appreciated that insight but hearing this episode makes me question some of these modalities. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.
I’m looking for the freebie that you and Anahata discussed along with discount codes for her services? I feel I am being drawn and would like to engage.
The link has been added to the shownotes!
I enjoyed how this discussion brought science and “woo woo” together. I’ve experienced positive healing from Chakra work and wholeheartedly believe in natural healing. It was interesting to hear about how the science of how our bodies interact with minerals and other earth energies. Thanks for “going there,” Ben. I’m a new listener and am officially hooked on your podcasts after listening to only 2 of them!
If I can save the $ I would like to go do one of those sessions. However, like you I am a Christian and am concerned about delving into New Age beliefs and practices. I got into that years ago with Science of Mind and it did not go well. Still, it intrigued me and I think as Christians we can use other practices to enhance our faith such as Eastern meditation.
How do you square this with your identity as a Christian?
My tendency is to experience this stuff and I want to go to Sedona.
Hi Bill, I would check out this podcast I recorded with Pastor Toby Sumpter.
Loved the show Ben. Shame some people can’t handle so called woo woo, but good to see you are a deep diver and open to the fact that there is more to our experience.
Love this… Dr.Joe Dispenza is amazing as well for thePineal Gland work and belief work.
I too would love to know more about the nutrition side for consciousness.
These people are paying him to support whatever now.
No offense but it’s tough to take someone seriously who sounds like a CA. “Valley Girl”.
Wow, dumbest show ever
Really can’t understand the harsh comments, especially those without any substance (Joey & Crystal), provide constructive criticism and opinions or just don’t comment. While I did find much of this episode to be very “woo woo”, it interest me enough to investigate further and maybe try it myself. Keep up the good work Mr. Greenfield!
Anahata mentioned that people tend to eat foods that can block ‘consciousness channels’, what are these foods???
Number 1 – processed sugar also fried foods, hydrogenated vegetable oils – these things block the channels that will empower you. Start with eliminating these and see how you feel. :-)
