Another Murder: Holistic healer shot 5 times in front of her family, I wonder if this will also be recorded as a “suicide|

It appears as if holistic healers are being found dead or assassinated around the world now. Making this latest awful crime victim no 103.

Our heart goes out to family and loved ones, some of whom witnessed this gruesome cold-blooded murder, of the world-famous traditional healer and elder Olivia Arévalo Lomas of the Shipibo Konibo Indigenous people of Peru. She was assassinated yesterday with five shots to the heart.

“The unknown assailants killed her at her home in the community of Victoria Gracia located 20 minutes from the town of Yarinacocha, in front of her family and in the presence of children.”1

But this time the local people have taken matters into their own hands to seek their own justice and have mistakenly killed an unnamed Canadian man who was her student, but now authorities say it may be another man altogether and her murdered student may have nothing to do with it.

The website Telesur said of the original murder:

“Arevalo Lomas was a staunch defender of Indigenous people’s rights in the region. She also served as an ikaro (‘singer’), a traditional form of singing-medicine that removes negative energies from the individual and collective.

Their songs, known as Onyanya (‘plant songs’), are taught to healers through a specific dietary regime lasting roughly four years. It’s intended to immerse the singer in the healing powers of plants and help them inherit the songs.”2

Daily Kos reports that this could be as a result of healer and Elder Lomas trying to protect the very environment in which she lives and might use to heal others.

From the Daily Kos:

“Olivia Arévalo Lomas of the Shipibo Konibo Indigenous people of Peru was assassinated April 19, 2018 with five shots to her heart, Cultural Survival reported. She was murdered in her home in the Amazon rainforest community of Victoria Gracia located 20 minutes from the town of Yarinacocha, in front of her family according to witnesses. Her death is part of a surge of murders against environmental activists worldwide. Peru, has the 4th highest murder rate. She died in the defense of all of us, protecting the lungs of the Earth with only the power of her voice.”

Most of the resources that the industrialized world desires are in poor countries over large swaths of indigenous lands; sadly, if there’s a resource someone wants, people are very often displaced to get it.

The Hill provides a background on the 2007 bilateral Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Peru and the United States. It is shocking and disturbing.

Peru’s Ministry of Culture expressed their condolences and solidarity to her relatives and the Victoria Gracia community and condemned the assassination: “We are immediately following up with the police and the prosecutor’s office in order to conduct a thorough investigation. We ask the authorities for protection for the affected family.”4

“Cultural Survival, who are local, joins FECONAU and COSHICOX, the highest authority of the Shipibo people, in strongly condemning these this bloodshed that is mourned by her family and the Shipibo people as a whole.

FECONAU AND COSHICOX call for national and international solidarity in calling on the Peruvian state to bring those responsible to justice, and to provide guarantees for the safety of two other Indigenous leaders of the Shipibo Konibo people who today face death threats and harassment.”1

The interview below is a press conference with COSHICOX, live from the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Peoples Issues in New York, by Indigenous K’iche communicator Avexnim Cojtí of Cultural Survival.

You can also read the COSHICOX press release in Spanish, here. 

In addition to the attack on Lomas, the following written death threat against another Shipibo female healer reads: “Señora y Sr Magdalena Florez Agustín, Bernardo Murayari Ochavano you have 48 hours to flee. One bullet for each of you and if you don’t do as told there will be the consequence that more bullets will rain down on you.”

We truly hope the other holistic healers will be safe!

We will update this as we have more on the story. Again, we are deeply saddened. We wish peaceful rest for this great spiritual healer.

About the Author

Amanda-Mary
With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.

I hope you enjoy our blog site and the articles we labor over for your benefit. Please donate to the cause on the page above, as we do not receive a penny in advertising, or sponsorship. It is all from the heart.

Love and light.
