'Shamanism' Chapter

Native American

Shamanism is spiritual, but it is not a religion. The energy that has been the focus of Shamanism is life. Life force. Everything exists because it has life energy, and nothing can exist without it. To the Shaman, everything that exists has something to teach you. The moon has life energy that it can share with you, and so does the sun. The vision you have in moonlight won’t be the same as those you have under the sun, because the wisdom of the moon and sun are different.

Ultimately, everyone is or can be a Shaman. For the Shaman, their way wasn’t just a role, it was a passion as well. Often an all consuming interest.

Read the Dark Shamanism chapter in Dark Metaphysics.

“The internal dialogue is what grounds people in the daily world. The world is such and such or so and so, only because we talk to ourselves about its being such and such and so and so. The passageway into the world of shamans opens up after the warrior has learned to shut off his internal dialogue.” Carlos Castaneda

“Intent is not a thought, or an object, or a wish. Intent is what can make a man succeed when his thoughts tell him that he is defeated. It operates in spite of the warrior’s indulgence. Intent is what makes him invulnerable. Intent is what sends a shaman through a wall, through space, to infinity.” Carlos Castaneda (Peruvian born American best-selling Author and Writer, 1925-1998)
