Learn About LightWorker™ Activation of the Shaman :
Shaman….what images come to mind? Can you smell the burning fire? Can you see the path to the otherworld? Does it bring frightening or soothing images to mind or is there a subtle combination of the two?
Shaman knowledge and practice is not indigenous or geographically specific. There are many who use “Shamanic touch” and ritual in their healing work. Spiritual practice is not dogmatic. There are no hard and fast rigid rules to follow. It changes as we advance as a people. Even with our advancement we find that the circle turns and we find merit to practices and beliefs that existed long ago. In our modern day world the Shaman may have a new face but the energy remains the same exultation with the power of the earth and beyond. The honor and the respect for the universe and acceptance of all life lie at the heart of Shamanism. The Shaman honors his environment by using it for what it was intended to be used for. Knowing that illness can be linked to a specific place he realizes the herbs and minerals needed for healing that specific ailment will be found there in the wild. He is also aware of entities, cords and life experiences that can damage our etheric field and physical bodies and seeks to find a “cure”. The ability to transform oneself to an ecstatic or trance state is necessary to fulfill this role.
The word Shaman comes from the people of Evenk in Siberia. This was the name given to their spiritual leaders and healers. When Russia took control of outlying areas they referred to Evenk as Tungus. Under Communist rule Shamanic practice was prohibited and many were killed or placed in prison. Many people in Siberia continued to practice as the area is so large and remote they were undetected by the government. Shaman was the name the people of Evenk used to call their spiritual leaders. The Tungus word Shaman was accepted by anthropologists. They began to use this term to describe similar practices they were seeing amongst indigenous tribes and nations. Many earth based spiritual practices began to be known as Shamanic, when actually the true Shaman were originally Siberian mystics and Holy men. These people were chosen at birth. Their study involved 9 degrees representing the nine branches of the World Tree. Many years of study were spent with each degree and many
did not complete all levels.
