7. All Shamans work with a sense of higher power.
For example: God, Creator, Great Spirit etc.
Shamans mainly work with the earth and it's vibrations, sacred
plants and sacred sites. Also the spirits of: North, South, East,
West, Above, Below and Within. All of which are the manifestations
of God etc.
1. All Shamans see the universe as made from vibrations.
Quantum Physics has proven that the basic
building blocks of all matter in the universe are not any solid
substances, but dynamic energy patterns. Therefore all forms are
impermanent. Shamans use sacred songs, chants and rhythmic
drumming to create changes in patients’ energy patterns and
therefore bring harmony and healing. Chanting 'Wolf' in a sacred
way can actually create (invoke) a real wolf to appear.
8. Shamans use love and sexual energy as healing energy.
This feminine energy of the universe is a
creative and healing energy from the PHOTONIC BODY. (see
article on Duality)
HEAVEN (ABOVE): Light, Love,
Healing power and Inclusion (desire to join);
MAN and Consciousness (WITHIN)
orchestrating the dance between the other two pairs of opposites (see
article on Duality).
EARTH (BELOW): Matter, Hate,
Survival or death and Exclusion (desire to separate);
also the Hebrew - Alph, Mem Sheen .
Dovid = Lover = Transfer of resonance and energy = From
resonance to resonance or from resistance to resistance.
4. Shamans use any device to alter a patient's belief about
This is particularly necessary for
Westerners suffering the 'Human Condition' which is the
superficial evasion of the real truth for our existence –
integration, oneness or realisation of the finite in the infinite
and the infinite in the finite.
2. Shamans see the world in terms of myths and visions.
This at first seemed to defy physics. But we
must extend our beliefs beyond the four walls, ceiling and floor.
There is a world of mythical and spiritual life, where time and
space mean nothing, if only we learn to use our other five
Mythical senses including intuition and imagination. All of
reality is manifest or expressed as pairs of opposites and
metaphors, but beyond this reality is beyond comprehension. The
structures and phenomena we observe are creations of our measuring
and categorising mind.
3. Shamans perceive reality in a state of altered
Very much like a doctor of Western medicine
sees his patient in terms of organs
and chemicals, not as his friend
Tom the truck driver. When very
difficult problems occur a potion
of Ayahuasca (vision vine) is used.
This potion is very dangerous as it
illuminates every part of the brain
and memory at once. Thus you see
and feel every event, past,
present, and future simultaneously,
including all the painful and
hurtful ones that have been
concealed over a long time. Shamans
can also see patients in terms of
vibrational energy patterns; belief
systems or conscious thought
patterns; mythological systems –
spirit guides and totems;
electrical systems – positive and
negative chi; nutritional systems;
or other energy systems, like
auras, just to name a few.
5. Shamans choose what is physically meaningful and see all events
as universally connected.
Holograms may explain the
interconnectedness. The observer effect on or between two events;
crossover of senses; and paths of least action are all important.
All paths exist in parallel worlds. Consciousness of Mythical and
parallel events can change and or reveal more reality.
6. Shamans enter into parallel worlds.
Shifting consciousness from Cronos to Mythos
(see article on Duality, in Volume
1 Number 5, for an explanation). Although both are universally
connected, only one is usually in full consciousness. Dreams and
visions are visits to these other realms or worlds, and with all
of reality these will be experienced and expressed in symbolic,
metaphoric form which shamans are familiar enough with to help one
access the messages from these realities. These other worlds are
also related to what Carl Jung has termed the ‘Archetypes of the
9. Shamans enter the death world to alter their perceptions in
When consciousness is on the body
consciousness or subconscious survival level, as
it usually is, and does not seem to be working,
the mind's consciousness moves to others realms to
find a place to continue it's survival. Thus
creating visions and spirit journeys to the other
worlds, but again they will be experienced and
expressed in symbolic form, and with all myths,
dreams, visions and channelling from these realms
it is important not to get stuck with the symbol,
but to transcend them to glean the messages. All
shamans experience this death world as a part of
their initiation, calling, or the vocational
summons to the path of shamanism, as I have
explained in the article on ‘Shamanism’
2 Number 1.
REGARDING JOURNEYS WITH AYAHUASCA (Vision Vine)
1. Plants and animals have
powerful spirits. Knowledge and power can be derived from them.
2. To learn from these
spirits, one must follow a strict diet and maintain sexual
3. These plants are tools for
exploring the natural and supernatural realms.
4. There are dangers in these
realms. A novice should use Ayahuasca only in the presence of an
5. A novice needs spirits and
guides to protect him/her when they journey.
6. Dreams and visions may be
manipulated by the Shaman.
7. There is a substance
embedded in the Shaman's chest that has knowledge and power.
8. There is knowledge and
power in the Shaman's songs.
9. Illness is due to the
actions of evil spirits or evil sorcerers, and disharmony.
10.The spirit is pathogenic.
It has a material manifestation, such as an insect or a piece of
11.These spirits can be
diverted by the Shaman's use of song, magic plants, and most
important, the use of tobacco smoke.

1 Number 3, and ‘Duality and the order of life and energy’
in Volume 1 Number 5.
a complete understanding of this subject I recommend you read
Fred Alan Wolf’s book ‘The Eagle’s Quest – A
Physicist’s Search for Truth in the Heart of the Shamanic
World’. And I also highly recommend reading ‘The Tao of
Physics – An exploration of the parallels between modern
physics and Eastern mysticism’, by: Fritjof Capra.
