By knowing how to enter the shamanic state of consciousness, shamans have the ability to help people who have died, but possibly not transcended, to assist them in their journey to the spirit world.  Shamans work with their spirit helpers to mediate between the living in ordinary reality and the souls of the deceased in non-ordinary reality. 

They may also help spirits who have passed but are having a difficult time moving through to the spirit world, because of violent or accidental death, or because of some attachment that prevents them from moving on. Coming to terms with one’s own dying and death enables shamans to support other people in dealing with these fundamental experiences.  Psychopomp work helps facilitate the soul's individual journey from ordinary reality.  It is also helpful to assist those people who are in the process of dying or for relatives and friends who may be having difficulties in their grieving process of the death of a loved one.
