The Practical Power of the Shaman

Written by Keith Varnum

Continued from page 1


When shaman use their ability to "see"repparttar underlying energy dynamics of situations and relationships, they are able to "see" cause and effect connections and forces that are not visible when viewingrepparttar 122371 circumstances superficially, i.e., looking only atrepparttar 122372 outer form. Perceivingrepparttar 122373 energy dynamics of life events reveals new alternatives and possibilities not previously apparent.

"The art ofrepparttar 122374 (shaman) is to be able to guide, to be able to illuminaterepparttar 122375 path in such a way thatrepparttar 122376 person hooks on to a greater experience-that of freedom..." Eagle Feather shares. This allows peoplerepparttar 122377 freedom to move beyond limits of past perceptions intorepparttar 122378 realm of options, fresh creativity and natural magic.

A shaman would "see," for example, thatrepparttar 122379 anger of a supermarket clerk resulted fromrepparttar 122380 clerk's inability to express their feelings. The shaman could "see" how these emotions were adversely affecting not onlyrepparttar 122381 clerk, butrepparttar 122382 people in line. Consequently, a shaman may choose to engagerepparttar 122383 angry clerk in a friendly, relaxing conversation in order to shiftrepparttar 122384 situation into flow and harmony.


We have many powers within us that we can learn to use for our own benefit and forrepparttar 122385 benefit of others. Fromrepparttar 122386 shamanistic point of view, all power comes from within. Power comes from authorship (authority). Shamans becomerepparttar 122387 authors ofrepparttar 122388 creations in their world by freeing themselves of programmed and conditioned perceptions. In moving beyond customs, manners, rules and techniques,repparttar 122389 shaman embracesrepparttar 122390 practicality of " What works, works." The shaman has little concern for how something works, only that it producesrepparttar 122391 results that one intends. Shamans arerepparttar 122392 most flexible, utilitarian and efficient authors of their world. They takerepparttar 122393 shortest, quickest route to their goals, even ifrepparttar 122394 path tramples on their own concepts or beliefs.

One way people can experience this power is to look for proof in their own lives. Take love, for example. One way to increaserepparttar 122395 presence and power of love in a person's life is to decreaserepparttar 122396 presence and power of judgment. Shamans notice that their attention cannot be in both places atrepparttar 122397 same time, and, therefore choose where they want to spend their energy. To spend energy judging that they harmed someone or that another person caused them harm, would be a misdirection and waste of energy for a shaman.

Eagle Feather explains more aboutrepparttar 122398 true nature of power, " Anyone looking for power over others or control over material processes is probably going to be disappointed byrepparttar 122399 teaching, which essentially define power asrepparttar 122400 ability to free oneself from one's own perceptions and habitual patterns. The message seems to be that once you align withrepparttar 122401 energy, you're no longerrepparttar 122402 master. Spirit is."


A shaman is a bridge between this world andrepparttar 122403 invisible world ofrepparttar 122404 spirit. A shaman is very anchored, very present in this world. Being so centered and grounded, a shaman can assist a person to travel into dimensions and see things from a much bigger perspective. Then people can heal because there is more room for them to expand and open to fresh new realities. This expanded awareness fromrepparttar 122405 shaman creates a strong foundation for people to awaken to their own healing power within. The goal ofrepparttar 122406 shaman is always to supportrepparttar 122407 awakening ofrepparttar 122408 soul. The shaman acts as an anchor sorepparttar 122409 person can reach their own depth and move through their own cellular transformation.

Shaman Frederick Wolf concurs. "People really know how to heal themselves. It's an illusion to think that someone is going to come and heal them. But what will happen is, when they feelrepparttar 122410 support and safety thatrepparttar 122411 shaman can hold for them, they will have faith enough to go into that place inside of them that knows how to heal. It's not some magical thing that happens. It' s very natural."

Way of Living

Shamanism is a way of living onrepparttar 122412 altar of Mother Earth. It's a way to live in balance onrepparttar 122413 earth, a way of finding not only peace with yourself personally, but peace with nature and your environment. Shamanism is bringingrepparttar 122414 two worlds together: your inner world-"your heart"-with your outer world. It's important to be balanced, to be grounded in both worlds. We should be able to go anywhere and be at home, whether it's in a cave or a big city.

Shamanism is a pathway that can help us to realizerepparttar 122415 sacredness and magic within and all around us. Birds that soar intorepparttar 122416 heavens, trees whose roots reach deep intorepparttar 122417 earth, everything in nature reflects an aspect of our souls. Asrepparttar 122418 poet Rumi said, "You will see stars and moons mirrored in your being." Shamanism is letting go of our limited ideas and concepts of who we are. As we abandon our illusions of separateness, we open torepparttar 122419 beauty and simplicity of our true nature-our connectedness with all of life.
