gregory reece-smithGregory the Shaman is an experienced transformation facilitator, both within organisations and with individuals. Applying shamanic and spiritual practices he helps executives and entrepreneurs overcome the mental fog created by pain and dis-comfort, burn out, stress and decision making fatigue so they can achieve the freedom and flexible success they desire. He does this by helping shift the energy of the beliefs limiting their lives and thus their world around them.

Gregory has worked in corporate and led technology companies worldwide; later mentoring fledgling organisations to those the size of the international operations of IKEA.

As well as coaching, he conducts workshops at various locations around the world allowing participants to gain experience of how to use shamanic practices to effect change and bring greater clarity in their lives.

Gregory´s first book the #1 best selling  The Seven Secrets to Living in Harmony A Guide to Freeing YOU to Create YOUR Life was published in 2014 by Divine Time Books.  It sets out his own experience helping himself and others to achieve balance, harmony, and change their life.

The Seven Secrets contains case studies of how shamanic practices have changed client lives. There are also testimonials as well as some of the science with regard to how working with energy releases beliefs held in our different energy bodies – what shamans have known and practiced for millenia.

The core of its message being to recognise that bodily pain and dis-comfort is a message from our body indicating it wishes to release beliefs and values it is holding on to. These beliefs creating the way we view ourselves and our world around us – the source of the restrictions we place on ourselves and so all aspects of our lives. Our soul desires to grow and cannot do so whilst the limiting beliefs remain.

Gregory´s purpose is to assist everyone to achieve balance and harmony in their lives through the only person that is empowered to do so, themselves! For if there is clarity within, then so are we with Nature. He helps effect change through a range of shamanic and spiritual practices; guiding people to connect to Spirit and their soul to help to be free to create harmony and rapid growth in all aspects of their lives.

The Shaman Connection

His first introduction to shamanism in this life was reading books his eldest son had left lying around their home. This led to several journeys to retrieve soul parts.


More intimate involvement in shamanism beginning one day in early July when invited to join an informal ceremony at Avebury in Wiltshire, England. There standing next to one of the stones of the central circle he saw himself as the shaman leading a procession up the processional pathway toward the stone circle.

A few months later another friend said she had been guided to take Gregory to re-visit Avebury. Walking down the processional path away from Avebury the sky became heavy with dark, grey cloud. Following the path up the slope and then down toward Silbury Hill, the rain became more intense. Arriving at the base of Silbury Hill and looking up towards its conical peak, Gregory remembered his last visit. He had been leading a ceremony on the Hill, when a participant had died. Swearing never to use his powers as a shaman again, he turned away from shamanic practice.

After completing a ceremony of forgiveness, release and gratitude, Gregory and his friend began to walk away from Silbury. Turning to say their last goodbyes to the Hill, a shaft of sunlight broke through the leaden sky, its beam passing straight over the peak of Silbury Hill.

The Mayan Connection

According to the Mayan tradition, your Nawal or date of birth carries a specific vibration of all the potentials and wisdom that your soul seeks to acquire and develop during your lifetime – your soul´s purpose. The Galactic Calendar indicates Gregory´s solar seal is BEN, the Red Sky Walker.

Laetitia Tisserand in her Mayan Signs And Their Interpretation states: “Ben is a messenger of the Sky….. Ben is the Sky Walker, the traveller of the Sky…… It is also the messenger of the other dimensions, bringing back to Earth the teachings received during its flight….


They have the connection with the Earth and they have the connection with Heavens. Their work is to create a bridge between these two realities. They are messengers of the Sky upon Earth.….. Because of their strong talent in their specific subject, they can enjoy playing the role of teacher and be very talented for it, sharing their passion with their students.  Once their heart and throat will be open enough they will be able to induce to others high states of consciousness…..

They are builders of staircases to Heavens on Earth……they become a channel for the universal consciousness of love and light to send its messages upon Earth. They become the channel for beautiful magic, grace and miracles to take place on Earth.“

In addition to renewing his acquaintance with British shamanic practice, Gregory has also studied with Hawaiian and South American shamans. He is a Reiki Master, as well as a Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy® and its related Creating Your Future® coaching as well as hypnosis and spiritual counselling.

Gregory works with individuals and groups, on his travels  often finding he is asked to help clear spaces of trapped energies.

Awareness of the Shaman

Gregory primarily works with those seeking to be more aware  of who they really are. Then applying this consciousness in all aspects of their lives, including business and personal. To Gregory this starts with self-awareness. Both as to your own feelings and what you observe around you. Being conscious is a “special quality of mind” that permits us to know both that we exist and that we are part of everything.

The mind is able to portray reality to itself merely by encoding sensory information, consciousness however implies subjectivity. Once we are self-aware we have the ability to make a choice. This is the essence within each of us connected to the Creator that a shaman utilises to connect to the light body.

This is key because self-awareness – knowing who you really are – creates an opening to change your perception of yourself and, ultimately, the life you experience.

It allows you to take responsibility for your own actions.

Through taking self-responsibility we become consciously aware of the consequences of our thoughts, words, actions and deeds. Which lead us to being able to make choices aligning with our own values. We are therefore in command of the way we lead our lives, and the impact on those around us.
