10 Signs You Are A Shaman - Sarah Negus Spiritual Mentor

Shamans are rising, are you one of them?

Many of us who grew up in the western World are in fact Shamans but don't know or understand it. Traditionally, if you were not born in an indigenous culture and initiated by the age of 30 you are not a Shaman. This for me limits the World's need for healers, energy workers and true sensitives to do their work in a way that is accepted as an ancient way of being and has survived centuries of suppression. In fact, it is my belief that there is a vast army of souls living and working in our western culture who are Shamans in hiding.

Shamans are bridges between the spiritual and the physical, they are able to travel through many realms and to see into what appears to be the darkness to find the light. I am forever grateful to the Shamans I have worked with who saw the light in me and helped me to shine it more and more brightly. Shamans see themselves in others, they can expand their consciousness past what is proven and known and can telepathically communicate over vast distance, to animals and even to our Planet Earth. They are translators of spiritual wisdom, gatherers of spiritual energies and conduits of divine love. They bring shades of grey in between the black and the white of situations and uncover different perspectives, different beliefs and different physical experiences for their clients and the World.

In my work I find there are several signs that you are a Shaman and are still in hiding, perhaps you'll recognise yourself here.


 You are an introvert. Shamans shift between the dimensions with their energy, our idea of space and time is difficult to manage and you often feel like you're 'out there', and you probably are, but you have no idea how or why or how to manage the feeling. You find it is easier to keep yourself to yourself.

 You love nature and recognise it as home. Shamans are a bridge between the consciousness of our planet and humans, they translate information from our Earth, the Moon, the Sun, the Stars, the Mountains, the Sea and from animals. You love to go out into nature and often get downloads or information when you do.



 You are a sensitive. You can experience sensory overload, when the outside world is too loud, or the radio or TV gives too much information. Social Media can be 'hectic' and you find yourself at sea in a World of hype and comparison. You have been accused of being too sensitive and may reach for alcohol to numb yourself, food to give comfort, unhealthy relationships to prove you are worthy and you may find great solace in sleep.

You have experienced a difficult childhood, many life lessons or traumas. These are initiations, getting you ready for your role as a Shaman. You have learned compassion from experience and can hold empathy for someone without dropping into sympathy.



You feel an urge to look for something more for yourself. You feel called to a bigger purpose and feel that you can make a difference in our global conscious expansion.

You are called to serve. From an early age you have felt the need to give to humanity, to our planet to those in need. Others come to you for advice and you are the one that is always there to help. Sometimes you lose your own sense of self in this giving and are looking to find balance, to find yourself within your calling.



You experience vivid dreams. These dreams are the spirit world communicating with you when you sleep. You may feel like you astral travel without knowing how or why. This is your ability to bridge the different realms and bring back information.

You are opening up to your spiritual powers. You feel you have psychic powers, your 'clairs' are opening, your hands offer relief to others in the form of hands on energy healing, you 'know' things intuitively and you often think of something or someone and find the person gets in touch or your manifest what you were thinking of.



You suffer with physical ailments, sometimes called 'Shamanic sickness'. Hidden Shamans are prone to auto-immune disorders, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, chronic lyme disease, chronic pain, depression, sudden traumas such as car crashes. These all resolve once acceptance to the shamanic path or service is found.

You have always felt different, like you don't belong, you don't fit in and that no one understands you


I'm guessing that pretty much all of these points relate to you.

You are a Shaman, and it is time for you to embrace that part of you.

Once you do, you will feel energised, passionate, full of joy and love of life.

Once you do, those that need you will find you.

Feeling called to expand and step into your Shamanic power, then get in touch with me. I can show you how to do that, effectively and easily.

I'm waiting to hear from you, my calling is to help you remember who you are and why you came. The World needs you.

Della - 27th July 2017 Reply

I am floored and yet knew that I would see myself in this. I match 9 of the 10 almost to the letter!! I have been afraid, because I already feel so different, misunderstood, and liking solitude so much that I could become a recluse. I do not know where to start or even what to do. My intuition is Keen and I can often read some folks so well we both walk away shocked. I am ready to do this now , because running has not worked.

    Sarah - 27th July 2017 Reply

    Hi Della, So glad my blog resonated with you honey.

Rick - 27th July 2017 Reply

I Hit each one of the ten points you have given and I feel absolutely lost in life and would like to hear more from you and your work. I feel my power but it seems to be working against me at the moment. I sometimes feel isolated overwhelmed and depressed it would be nice to understand how to Chanel my “gifts” to make the world a better place

You have no idea the weird relief I feel right now.

You (your higher self) has been calling to me.

Almost everyday/night for the 3 weeks, without fail, I have heard the name Sarah accentuated loudly, sometimes 3x in a day, I saw my sons ex girlfriend Sarah out of the blue in an most unlikely place at an unlikely time- some synchronicity going on, as I havent seen her for almost 5 years. Seeing the name everywhere even songs & song Sarah playing in my head one morn, writen in writings, yelled out across the street. This was very concentrated in a short span of time.

I really just got to the point where I asked the One True Prime Creator what is going on & to please show/lead me or do something, Im listening. I did ask to please show me my path too as I was becoming terribly frustrated with not knowing. So perhaps Im ready & this is crunch time.

Haha even as I wrote that a high vibratory noice echoed through my right eardrum, this is positive response by benevolent angelic energies.

Today I’ve come across you & only by an out of character, yet ordered synchronistic chance & it led me here to you
Sarah @ Sarah. Wowzas!
I will explain one day.

So of course I resonated with all 10 & describes me perfectly.

Im not sure what to say now really or what to do next or even how Im going to do it. Its all in the Prime Creators magnificent universal & infinite energy hands.
Perhaps A Shaman I Am..
Does that mean I’m truely awake or In-Sane or crazy & insane?



    Sarah - 7th March 2018 Reply

    Wow! Nikki! Serendipities all around for you here. You are never insane, crazy or anything else. You are you.

Paul - 11th April 2018 Reply

I line up with 2 but know I am a Shaman and frequently travel down tree roots and well past the stars and in between. I talk to my power animal and heal using Reiki and Shamanism. I can tell people on the phone and in person things they cannot work out how I know. I want to help people with sould retrieval and healing. I am here for everyone and noone.

Amanda - 17th April 2018 Reply

Hi! My mom sent me this link saying that i fit every one of these categories, when i read it i was like wow i can seriously relate to all of this information. I would love to talk with you more about this!

    Sarah - 17th April 2018 Reply

    Hi Amanda, so glad my blog resonated with you. Feel free to email me via my website and we can chat further. Sarah

Saúl Solís - 26th April 2018 Reply

Hi sweetie. Dead-on description! I think I’m a Mesoamerican Shaman, which I think is really unique because it mostly involves rituals using the sacred cacti Peyote. I am from the desert, from the northeast part of Mexico and I’ve always identified with those peculiar fauna and flora. I will gladly talk about it with you if you find the chance.

I just hope you’re not a scam hehe.

    Hey Saul, no scam here.. hehe… Your work sounds amazing. I have experienced San Pedro and found it extremely useful.

Mare - 6th May 2018 Reply

Greetings Sarah,
Not sure how to put this but…WOW!!!
BLESSED am I that I followed my instincts and they led me to your soul. I did not hit all 10 but 80% I did. AMAZING.
I have always felt I had Gifts to share with people to help make this a better place to live in and today I am speechless… Even at 61 yrs young I know I am on the right path.
Thank you Sarah and look so forward to see where my journey takes me.
Blessings, Mare

    Sarah - 7th May 2018 Reply

    Dear Mare, so glad my blog has helped you. I have a saying about ‘the journey’ we all find ourselves on. “The best is yet to come”!

Morten - 18th May 2018 Reply


This sentence is the 2nd time I have encountered this week. First time was under a changa ceremony on Monday morning…

“The World needs you.”
One of the Norse pagan shamans told me I had the potential of being a shaman. I just have a ton of clearing to do, due to some blockages and parasite entities having attached themselves to me, giving the term “monkeys on my back” a more chilling meaning.

If this is the case, I am petrified. Because I have read about a few things I may have to do with my life..

If you can contact me through the email submitted, I would be grateful.


Gloria Alvino - 22nd May 2018 Reply

I have always felt shamanic, but did not feel safe saying that to more than a few special people. At age 87 next month, I have come out of the spiritual closet to better serve my community Heart to Heart.

At times it is still difficult to be myself.

Thank you for sharing you do a profound service to humanity and Gaia. Much love and many blessings from me and Gaia

    Thank you for your kind words WhiteFox.

Robyn Baldwin - 20th June 2018 Reply

Amazing article! I am only a year old in learning about who I am because I have surrendered to my autoimmune pain. Doctors refuse to help me and so I was forced to help my self. And that was the final strand to reset me on this path of life and I am revelling in every step I take forward into newness. Knowing I am not alone is just enough to keep my head strong and my body wise.
Thank you Sarah. Namaste

    Sarah - 25th June 2018 Reply

    Thank you Robyn, surrendering to what ‘is’, is immensely powerful in terms of recovery.

Whitney - 24th August 2018 Reply

Right on!!! I’ve experienced all 10!!!

breakingvessel - 12th October 2018 Reply

The last three vision quest I was told that I was searching for a Shaman to know what I am and where I belong . It never occurred to me that I am and I have all the answers of what I seek inside of me hidden years ago now Maybe I I can be the me I was meant to be in this life time I always wondered why people come to me for answers that I knew the answers to but didn’t know why I knew them and how I have able to travel threw time to times in history to seek truths from the past with my own eyes

Jamie Schutz - 21st November 2018 Reply

All except two of these are me. I’d love more information in regards to history of Shamans and how this applies to me. As well as information about your services etc. Thank you so much in advance.

    Sarah - 25th November 2018 Reply

    I’ve sent over an email Jamie, with a little bit of history.

Cesar Ornelas - 15th February 2020 Reply

All ten resonate. Have felt like I have a higher purpose in this lifetime. I feel and see things but don’t know how to go about understanding any of it. I would love some insight. Would love to understand and utilize the gifts that were bestowed upon me for the greater good.

I cannot believe there are many people out there who feel the way that i do. I can relate to everyone. Everyday i see vivid dreams and i too am sensitive.

Zoe Campos - 25th November 2020 Reply

It’s interesting to know that people who feel at ease with nature and treat it as a home may be considered shamans. I’ve only heard about them the other day and thought that I can treat it as a new interest. Maybe I can participate in private shamanic retreats and see if this path is for me.

Olivia - 21st September 2021 Reply

Hello there I have felt i was different for many years i can honestly say i have no enemies no hate and have forgiven all that have cause hurt torwards me i have self taught myself to astral projection and go to people in spirit to heal them amd bring them joy and i didnt read anything about it i just knew how to do it at any second i can literally leave my body and be my spirit i often do this to put a protective layer or shield invisible sheild to protect my home i even woke up one day and dug up my yard and have collected over 40 rocks which are known as quarts i keep them every where its like i already knew the power of them i can say for being a young shaman i can HEAR … FEEL… SMELL … SPIRITS but i can not see o feel it is slowly developing as i have seen somethings for a split second but not to sure so my question is why cant i see completely ..?
