What Does Shaman Mean?
Shamans have been around for tens of thousands of years and is the oldest spiritual practice, in fact, there is evidence it may even be 80,000 years. They utilize techniques and rituals that have helped humans survive back then and still today. It is not a religion even though it is practised by many religions.
Shamans heal the injured and the sick, perform ceremonies, sing, chant and dance bridging the gap between the living and the dead and are able to communicate with spirit. We can get help from the world of spirit to get the information that we need now.
What are the elements of Self? They are mind, body, emotion and energy (soul spirit). To express our soul is perfectly natural but we always seem to get in our own way. Expressing our soul brings positive changes in our lives. Shamans accept the soul as eternal, since energy cannot be created or destroyed, neither can the soul therefore it seems realistic to assume that soul has purpose. We have a responsibility to express what we have the potential to become as we are part of something so much bigger.
