Shamanism is not a Religion but a healing based on generosity.
Some years ago, when I was on the Rainbow festival in Munich, I meditated on a bench… A man in an American Indian custom liked to join me.- As an introvert, I didn’t feel so good, I thought he is a freak… And this man was starting to talk with me, very humble … We had common ground to save and heal the environment/world. After some time, the press was coming and taking pictures of this famous shaman.
The Shamanism got misinterpreted through all kinds of Religion. The spiritual power of the Shaman should be witch-power, that is nonsense.
What heals is in any case good regardless of what it is!
The Shaman is going through specific rituals in trance and enters a spiritual world to heal.
Mostly used are drum rhythms, dancing or drugs.
For 10,000 years, the Shamanism has developed and created time-tested methods that are to 90% used by all different kind of shamanism. For instance, the Tibetan use similar shamanism methods like the Africans or American Indians.
The Shaman like to cure traumas, depression, anxiety, autism, diseases caused by a lack of power, bad luck and being accused. And he cures the patients when he connects them with the patient original spiritual power and balances their energies. Without the Shaman the patient can’t do that.
When we read the stories from “Don Juan” written by Carlos Castaneda,- we read again and again how Don Juan (Shaman) alters the state of mind to connect Carlos with a spiritual realm.
We all experience different states of our mind during the day and can go in hypnoses through a simple mp3.
Through hypnosis, we can alter our history, get rid of different anxieties or change our mindset…
Actually so different or unknown is not Shamanism. Still, Shamanism is much more than trance or hypnosis.
A Shaman can:
Alter his state of consciousness at will.
Can communicate between the needs of the spiritual world and the physical world.
You can’t get anything for free.
If the Shaman wants to heal through the spiritual world he has to give energy as exchange…
A Spirit of the spiritual world can heal the patient. The healing depends on the Spirit and not of the Shaman. The Shaman is just asking the Spirit for help.
We can read about the different animal powers that a Shaman can use and that we have also a specific animal power in the inside of us. It sounds weird when it helps what is bad about that?
Still, I can believe in God and use shamanism as healing. What is wrong with that?
I have made some shamanism rituals like the sweat lodge that was very powerful.
