Shaman – Different Realms of Reality

Wisdom of the Shaman

Sandra Ingerman

Author of Awakening to the Spirit World

Shamanism teaches that there are doorways into other realms of reality where helping spirits reside who can share guidance, insight, and healing not just for ourselves but also for the world in which we live.

We could say that Shamanism and Meditation are cousins. In meditation, we try be still, to enter the void, to be as far as possible from the distractions of the physical world. In Shamanism, after the initial relaxation similar to the one of meditation, we work intensely to meet the spirits. The objective is to  receive knowledge or to get their help for healings in the physical world.

Meditation and Shamanism are not in conflict. I suggest we perform both practices. As I already mentioned in another post, Shamanism can be learned and is an immensely useful practice to help us live a happier life. In my book – The Amazon Shaman – a psychological thriller, portrays the training of a white man to be Shaman.

Shamanism is a tradition that is being revived in our XXI century, the Era of Aquarius. For more information, please connect www.shamansociety.org.

Sabedoria do Shaman

Sandra Ingerman

Autor do Despertar para o Mundo Espiritual

Xamanismo ensina que há portas para outras esferas da realidade onde residem espíritos que podem nos ajudar, compartilhar orientação, compreensão e cura não apenas para nós mesmos, mas também para o mundo em que vivemos.

Poderíamos dizer que o xamanismo e a meditação são primos. Enquanto na meditação tentamos entrar no vazio, estar o mais longe possível das distrações do mundo físico, no xamanismo, após o relaxamento inicial muito semelhante ao da meditação, trabalhamos intensamente para encontrar os espíritos e receber instruções, conhecimentos ou obter ajuda para realizar curas no mundo físico.

Meditação e Xamanismo não são conflitantes. Podemos realizar as duas práticas. Como já mencionei em outro artigo, o Xamanismo pode ser aprendido e é uma prática muito útil para nos ajudar a viver uma vida mais feliz, ajudando ao próximo e a nós mesmos. Meu livro – O Xamã da Amazôna – uma história de suspense, detalha a preparação de um jovem branco para ser Xamã.

O xamanismo é uma tradição que está sendo revivida em nosso século XXI, a Era de Aquarius. Para maiores informações, você pode se conectar com o site www.shamansociety.org

I was involved in the business world, as an executive of large companies and university professor since recently. I was the president CSN, the largest steel-mill of Latin America and was responsible for its turn-around. My first encounter with the teachings of the Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung, one of the greatest geniuses of the 20th Century, was during my midlife crisis. Reading "Man and his Symbols" at that time, inspired me to go into Jungian analysis and to begin devouring the writings of Jung and his disciples. Since then, I've been studying psychology, especially Jungian psychology and, after reaching my seventies, I decided to become a full time writer, specializing on books on Jungian psychology and psychological thrillers. Every masterpiece of literature can be absorbed through multiple interpretations, and yield powerful insights for our daily lives. My first Jungian book, “The Little Prince for Grown-ups“, in its fourth edition in Brazil, was based on the famous book of Saint-Exupéry. The second, - “The Jungian Bible” - interprets some stories of the Old Testament and world myths. As I get older and, with a bit of luck, wiser, I want to pass on to the younger generations the lessons life has taught me. Jesus Christ taught that it was easier to sell ideas with stories. Following the Master, I published in English "The Amazon Shaman" and "In Search of Happiness", two psychological thrillers around the theme of happiness.
