What Is Shamanism?
Shamanism is often described as “the first spiritual practice of humanity,” with traditions and techniques that can be traced back more than 5,000 years. Evidence of shamanism has been found in every culture and on every continent throughout the world since the dawn of mankind. More importantly, its legacy, methods and belief structures can be useful today in personal growth and healing. People when seeking to balance their life often find that embracing a personal spiritual connection is essential. Science has begun to support this idea by affirming the benefit of a strong spiritual connection in maintaining health and fostering healing.
The word shaman comes from the name given to traditional healers of the Tungus people of Siberia, and it roughly translates as “one who sees in the dark.” This description means that many shamanic practices involve meditation, often with eyes closed to help discover the nature of a problem and determine potential solutions. The shaman “looks” into dark places in the person, the community and the planet, and finds how to bring them light, hope and healing.
The most basic belief of shamanism is that everything has a significant spiritual component. In fact, a shaman believes everything exists as Spirit in its ultimate nature: Every person, every animal, every tree, every illness, literally every single thing that exists. Moreover, this Spirit can be accessed, engaged or encountered in ways that bring about positive change to enhance the quality of life, relationships and health.
Is shamanism a religion?
The practice of shamanism is a method, not a religion. It has coexisted with established religions in many cultures. In Siberia, you’ll find shamanism coexisting with Buddhism and Lamaism, and in Japan with Buddhism.
Shamanism is also not exclusionary. They don’t say, “We have the only healing system.” In a holistic approach to healing, the shaman uses the spiritual means at his or her disposal in cooperation with people in the community who have other techniques such as plant healing, massage, and bone setting. The shaman’s purpose is to help the patient get well, not to prove that his or her system is the only one that works.
What is a Power Animal
Power animals are guardian spirits, similar to the concept of guardian angels or spirit guides. We all have them, whether or not we are consciously aware of them. Children are more aware than adults, children are still connected to the divine and mother earth , we see this reflected in their strong and loving attachment to toy animals and pets. Also we have all seen young children smiling and laughing into an empty space, they still see what we cannot. We have lost the ability as we have grown.
Many indigenous people believe that childhood cannot be survived without the guardianship of these spirit allies. They protect us, keep us full of power, health and enthusiasm and prevent negative energies and illnesses from entering our energy field. Sometimes a power animal leaves suddenly for unknown reasons. When this happens, the person becomes disempowered and the result is misfortune and/or illness.
From a shamanic point of view, one of the four main causes of illness is considered to be a loss of power. A power animal is typically one of the first spiritual relationships a shamanic practitioner will restore, restoring lost power.
As humans living in modern times where we are far removed from our connections to Mother Earth and Spirits, it is common for people to lose their power, to unknowingly give away their power and/or have power stolen from them. The power we are talking about here is the ability to define yourself or having the energy to create, we are not talking about physical strength and your ability to to be Hercules.
Without power we have a hard time accomplishing anything – even the day to day tasks of caring for ourselves can become a hard task to complete.
Usually, we have more than one power animal in our lifetime. Some show up for shorter time periods and specific teachings while others stick around for our entire life. All power animals are equal, a rabbit is just as powerful as a bear, a mouse just as powerful as a wolf.
After your power animal retrieval if you were connected to a power animal find a unique way to engage its energy. Spend time in nature with the power animal, put a picture of it in your home or office somewhere and try eating foods it likes.
Do you notice any subtle changes in how you feel or where your attention is drawn to? Are any of your senses heightened? Do you feel more powerful, protected and supported?
