Here is a writing worth repeating and remembering if you find someone to help with your healing, but then don’t like what you hear. This happens a lot and anger erupts. But later, you often use their medicine and realize the anger was with self. –Jim Graywolf Petruzzi
IF YOU GO LOOKING FOR A SHAMAN
and you find a real one
do not expect him to entertain you
with magical passes
His art is to provoke your demons;
Those that you well guards, justify,
deny and attribute to “another” …
If you go looking for a shaman, prepare yourself
for an undressing with his words,
know that he will anger you with his silence
Be alert when he exasperates you
with his brutal honesty.
Go prepared for battle …
the worst Battle: the battle with yourself.
“Whoever has magic does not need tricks”.
Truth.. It is the choice we make when we continue to live in shadow, by feeding the dark wolf! Many will tell us just what we want to hear.. But, she or he who is guided by spirit as a hollow bone .. MAY just share with us; Truth.. which we may or may not be prepared to hear!
As the elder often speaks in parable, one is left with only hints as to which direction to journey, I have learned that it is often wrong to lead one off of her or his chosen path as that is the lesson they have chosen to learn at that stage of their life.. It would be a robbery of sorts! A’ho –Spiritual Warrior; Wise OwL Medicine
Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 – April 3, 2000) was an American ethnobotanist, mystic, psychonaut, lecturer, and author who spoke and wrote about a variety of subjects, including psychedelic drugs, plant-based entheogens, shamanism, metaphysics, alchemy, language, philosophy, culture, technology, and the theoretical origins of human consciousness. He was called the “Timothy Leary of the ’90s”, “one of the leading authorities on the ontological foundations of shamanism”, and the “intellectual voice of rave culture”.
Shamanism is a spiritual practice found in cultures around the world from ancient times up to the present day. First and foremost, shamans’ practices are practical and adaptable. These practices coexist over millennia with varying cultures, systems of government, and organized religious practices.
Many formalized religions, from Buddhism to Christianity, came from ancient shamanic roots and still bear the shamanic threads of deep connection to the divine in all things. But shamanism itself is not a formalized system of beliefs or an ideology. Rather, it is a group of activities and experiences shared by shamans in cultures around the world. These practices are adaptable and coexist with different cultures, systems of government, and organized religious practices.
In this gem of a video Terence Mckenna spends 15 minutes talking about ‘The Spirit Of Shamanism’.

“The shaman is not merely a sick man, or a madman; he is a sick man who has healed himself.” – Terence McKenna

“Because it is not an organized religion as such, but rather a spiritual practice, shamanism cuts across all faiths and creeds, reaching deep levels of ancestral memory. As a primal belief system, which precedes established religion, it has its own symbolism and cosmology, inhabited by beings, gods, and totems, who display similar characteristics although they appear in various forms, depending upon their places of origin.” ~John Matthews, The Celtic Shaman
