Shamanic Practices and Aids.
What is a Shaman
Shamanism encompasses the belief that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. A Shaman is a healer who is said to treat ailments/illness by mending the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the soul/spirit restores the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness. The shaman also enters supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the community.
Shamans may visit other worlds/dimensions to bring guidance to misguided souls and to ameliorate illnesses of the human soul caused by foreign elements. The shaman operates primarily within the spiritual world, which in turn affects the human world. The restoration of balance results in the elimination of the ailment. One of the most popular contemporary Shamans is Don Juan who taught Nagualism to Carlos Castenada which was termed The Way of The Warrior” .Don Juan was a sorcerer which is a term the is quite misunderstood these days. The word Sorcerer is derived from the word source and therefore is one who is searching for the source or the ultimate truth.
The term ‘sorcery is inadequate to express what sorcerers do, and so is the term ‘shamanism’. The actions of sorcerers are exclusively in
the realm of the abstract, the impersonal. Sorcerers struggle to reach a goal that has nothing to do with the quests of an average man. Sorcerers’ aspirations are to reach infinity, and to be conscious of it.
