Shamanism – Ancient Spirituality for Modern Times…
Shamanism is an ancient Spirituality that is more than 25,000 years old. It originated in the Paleolithic hunting cultures of Siberia where Mongolian shamans utilized the drum for both healing and inducing a trance like state. Once the shaman achieved an altered state, he could go on spiritual journeys to the transcendent realms where he would encounter his helping spirits. A shaman usually has many helping spirits and totem animal guides who share their wisdom and help him with healing. The shaman can easily communicate with all spirits, including entities and demons. He can also do soul retrieval work for someone who is lost or suffering from depression. Some Shamans prefer to work with the dead who have gotten lost in the Spirit world and need help to transition into the afterlife – also called ‘Psychopomp’ work.
Benefits of Shamanism
Ultimately, most of us are seeking to have more meaningful connections with ourselves and others, but so often we get caught up in the daily stresses of life. When we are able to fully surrender and allow ourselves to access states of higher consciousness through the use of rattles or drumming, we discover our authentic selves.
Through the practice of singing our soul songs, dancing our power animals and going on Shamanic journeys, we are able to deepen our connection with our soul and thus expand our consciousness. Shamanic practices such as these are ‘Soul Food’. Each time we move into non-ordinary reality states, we can discover new possibilities for living a life filled with deeper meaning and joy.
In the Shamanic cosmology, the Spirit world consists of an Upper world, Middle World and a Lower world. The Upper and Lower worlds are the transcendent realms; we all live in the Middle world. Compassionate Spirits, also known as ‘Helping Spirits,’ are easily accessed in the transcendent realms. They are our allies who see the bigger picture. Their only agenda is to assist humanity with finding freedom from suffering.
I practice and teach ‘Core Shamanism’, which combines tools and rituals from several indigenous traditions. My Shamanic retreats & trainings are a conscious melding of the best Shamanic practices which include Peruvian, Amazonian, Mongolian, Native American and Balinese cultures.
