SPELL OF THE WEEK

SHAMANISM.

SHAMANISM IS PRACTICED THROUGH-OUT THE WORLD. THE MOST COMMONLY KNOWN IS NATIVE AMERICAN AND TRIBES FROM AFRICA. BUT WHAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW....IS THAT ALMOST ANYONE CAN BE A SHAMAN.

WELL, WHAT I MEAN BY THAT IS ANYONE WITH A "HEALING" OR MAGICKAL BACK GROUND THAT IS PRACTICED IN THEIR DAILY LIVES. THIS IS ONE ASPECT OF BEING A SHAMAN. THE OTHER PRACTICES ARE......" WALKING BETWEEN THE WORLDS" MEANING, THAT THEY USE ASTRAL PROJECTION IN THERE AID TO HEAL OR TO GAIN INFORMATION FROM THOSE THAT HAVE CROSSED OVER. I'M TALKING ABOUT THE DEAD. SHAMANS ARE MEDIUMS BY CHOICE. IT IS IA GREAT AND NECESSARY TOOL IN THE SHAMANS LIFE.

I AM A PRACTICING SHAMAN. I AM A REIKI MASTER AND CHAOS MAGICKIAN. THESE THINGS MAKE ME A SHAMAN, WELL, AT LEASED PART OF IT. THE OTHER PART IS THE FACT THAT I COME FROM A NORWEGIAN BLOOD LINE. MY MOTHER WAS 90% NORWEGIAN. MY "NORSE" HERITAGE IS DIFFERENT FROM SAY... NATIVE AMERICAN. THE NATIVE AMERICAN SHAMANS ARE ALL MEN. IN THE NORSE WAY ALSO KNOWN AS ASATRU, ONLY WOMEN ARE THE SHAMANS!! INTERESTING ISN'T IT.

ANOTHER GOOD POINT TO MENTION IS THAT, SHAMANISM CAN NOT BE TAUGHT TO YOU OR ANYONE. IT IS A COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT EXPERIENCE!!!! YOU CAN KNOW SOME GUIDELINES BUT, YOU CAN'T LEARN "HOW TO BE A SHAMAN" FROM A BOOK OR A WORKSHOP. IT DOESN'T GO THAT WAY. EVERYONE'S PATH IS DIFFERENT, AND THAT'S THE WAY THIS WORKS. THAT'S WHAT MAKES "BEING" A SHAMAN SO DIFFERENT THAN SAY... BECOMING WICCAN. TO TWO ARE AT OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE SCALE.

THERE ARE BOOKS ON SHAMANISM THAT TELL YOU WHAT IT IS AND THE GUIDELINES, BUT THATS ABOUT IT. AFTER THAT YOUR ON YOUR OWN. THATS THE WAY IT SHOULD BE TOO. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS TOPIC, VISIT MY WEBSITE, AND TYPE IN SHAMANISM IN THE SEARCH ON MY LLEWELLYN LINK ON MY LINKS PAGE. SEE YOU NEXT WEEK.
