Shamanism

Feminine God

“A religion old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge.” – Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot (1994) – www.pantheism “Soul retrieval is a Shamanic skill used to heal a person from illness. Shamans believe that all illness comes from losing power or giving power away to something or someone. It may be spirits from the Inner World that you have traded your soul power with to get fame or fortune or love. It may be a living being who has an energetic cord attached to you and is sucking part of your soul away. It can be a generational soul loss that happened many years ago with your grandfather or great grandmother that you are not even aware of that has taken away part of your family soul. Soul loss can also be caused by a traumatic experience, a car accident, a sudden death in the family, a violent crime, a chronic illness. These things can cause a loss of vital power or energy and that power and energy, a part of one’s wholeness, must be restored to bring health and healing of body mind and spirit back to the patient.” – soul_retrievalThis is the DreamCatcher, found here Gitchie Golly!! as Gomer would say. Doesn’t that sound a lot like “do no allow someone to occupy rent free space in your mind”? Hmm! in fact one could almost say the shaman is doing a QD Fix. Or that the shaman is de-idiotizing the victim. Or the generational soul loss could be described as epigenetics. Or traumatic experience as PTSD. Or the soul as the center leaving a “hole in the soul”. The minds work the same way they always have and always will. This is the insight, the mystery, the wonder that has been dismissed by western civilization as metaphysical bullshit. This works. The words and the mysticism may be different due to wetware, but this works. Check QDFix, Oracle and EarthLady

How Odd! Not only am I the Maylene Muse but also the Shelby Shaman
Another bunch I ran into were the Tupi. Like most countries in latin america there is a spanish upper class and native lower class. From the Amazonian rain forest comes one of the most potent catalysts for expanded awareness yet discovered by human beings. In Ecuador and Peru this medicine is known as Ayahuasca, a Quechua Indian word meaning, ironically, “vine of the dead”. In Columbia and parts of Brazil, the Tupi Indian name Yage (pronounced Ya-hay) is used, and among Amazonia’s proliferating mestizo relious cults it is called Daime…

“Ayahuasca” as a hallucinogenic substance does not properly refer to one single plant, but to a singular mixture of two very different plan species…there is no such thing as an “ayahuasca plant,” or a “yage plant”, any more than there is a simple liquor simply called “Martini.” Ayahuasca correctly refers to a psychedelic combination of plants which varies in potency according to the skill of its maker.

While each shaman has his own secret formula for the mixture (with probably no two exactly alike), it has been established that true ayahuasca always contains both beta-carboline and tryptamine alkaloids, the former (harmine and harmaline) usually obtained from the Banisteriopsis caapi vine, and the latter (N, N-dimethyl-tryptamine, or DMT) from the leaves of the Psychotria viridis bush. (There may be variations among plant species, but the alkaloids are always consistent.


Lakota Medicine Wheel

Medicine Wheel Part 1 Part 2 Part 3

an ancient symbol that traces back 10,000 years in the Americas. Among the different tribes which have used it, the medicine wheel has served both as a map of the cosmos as well as a ceremonial and contemplative tool, a means of honoring and interacting with the world’s elemental forces and intelligences

So what does it all mean? Well I think the feathered medicine wheel above looks like the steering wheel I had on my Studillac. Oh! you expected something more profound. I’ll have to call in the omniscient, all knowing, all seeing munificent professor emeritus maharishi el Loco Gringo. The Amerind worldview is the same as any other neuron trellis used to access the right mind directly. A method of obtaining a wider perspective on life. A method for understanding rather than just knowing, mans interactive relationship with the cosmos. Good shit. Fascinating.

This is probably the most difficult post I have ever attempted. You have no idea how hard it is to find an Amerind in the lotus position. But I felt impelled to get that foxy looking shaman online.

  1. Synchronicity.

    Went on a “Journey” Friday and met my power animal, a snake. Did not like him at first, but grew to admire him and enjoy his company as well as the challenge he seemed to be offering me for the future . . .

    Thanks.
