Shamanism Workshop with Paloma Cervantes
WHAT IS A SHAMAN? It is known that a Shaman is a person who has the ability to see and spirit travel to the Spiritual World at will becoming a bridge or a messenger between the physical world and the Spiritual World.
HOW DOES THIS HELP? One of the primary guiding principles for the Shaman is that any problem, illness, or disharmony in the physical world relates directly to the soul and to energy. Therefore, problems of the soul or energy can be treated in the Spiritual World. The healing that takes place in the Spiritual World is reflected in the physical world. The role of the Shaman is to bring back pertinent information to the client, work in the Spiritual World to heal a person’s soul, and thus assist healing on the physical, energetic, emotional, and mental levels.
WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE SHAMAN IN THE MODERN WORLD? In this millennium a Shaman is not usually the spiritual leader of their community as it was in ancient time. A modern Shaman is working on behalf of her/himself, family, pets, household, friends, community, and ultimately globally. In some circles the term “I am a Shaman” is frowned upon. This is strictly a personal choice in the topic of “labeling”.
