Shamanism is the oldest religion on the planet!
In terms of human existence, it predates current day organized religions by tens of thousands of years. European cave paintings and carvings showing shaman date from the Paleolithic era. Graves of shaman 12,000-year-old and older have been discovered in Israel and the Czech Republic.
Shamans have played an essential role in the defense of the psychic integrity of their community for thousands of years.
They are pre-eminently the antidemonic champions; they combat not only demons and disease, but also black magicians… In a general way, it can be said that shamanism defends life, health, fertility [and] the world of ‘light’, against death, diseases, sterility, disaster and the world of ‘darkness’… What is fundamental and universal is the shamans struggle against what we could call the ‘powers of evil. Shamans are not only able to foresee the future, but also to change the outcome. As an example, shamans can find out where food or game is located for the community, or averting threats to the community. This is a vital difference between shamanism and clairvoyance.
We will look more in depth at Shamans, Shamanism and the mystical journeys they undertake to heal and help people with compassion and care.
This is the second book in the series on Shamanism and is complimentary to my books on Reiki, there is a direct link between the Shaman’s Helping Spirits and Reiki Guides that help Reiki practitioners bring healing and comfort to people worldwide.
The Reiki, Shamanism and the essential loving mysticism is complementary to our YouTube video series, “Reiki with Candice, Mark and Opame”, and The Shaman Podcast on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and more. Together, these expand on Reiki and what it means to be a shaman and enjoy the capabilities of a shaman.
