There is much to be recommended in shamanism - it is what we need to re-learn and that which started our cultures a very long time ago. I think it originates with the animals we evolved from. Consider how much better off we would be if psychiatry was helpful and giving a way of living. Those two things are intricately involved with each other - in extended communities. Mental health includes being open and caring. It does not help to categorize and alienate or marginalize. That is true whether you look at the individual or a society bent on spending money to manage those that have been marginalized. Shamans are not Democrats or Republicans, and once they practise priestcraft or politics they become mere shadows of what they can BE. http://shamanicliving.blogspot.ca/20...of-ethics.html
It is hard to capture the synchronicity of this next post. I can only assure you that I was working on integrating these things for this book and this post from a healer came through in answer to my directed thought or intent-ional request. Intent is a vital element of magical operations. Here is my response to this post I believe helped me integrate these thoughts.
Yes, the energy lattices are most interesting.
Last night I was writing about the homeopathic tincture that when diluted enough times has none of the actual original poison in it and yet that poison lattice or intelligence remains. There is some rudimentary consciousness, such as allows the muon split in deep mines at Sudbury to communicate, in all energy. It is affinitely connected across space and time as I have written about at great length before. I was discussing the Cyanide in peach pits that Laetrile utilizes, to be specific.
Now I find this response including a sigil visualized in another dimension by a healer on this seldom used site. By your thought of healing and taking the negative energy of the sick person away from them and encasing it where that energy will not return you are doing something like Dr. Masaru Emoto has scientifically replicated with water crystals. Crystalline structural intelligence is a major part of the shaman's work throughout over more than a million years as I see it. In his work we find the crystals respond to music or thought and convey a range of emotions or beauty. Your thoughts are an evidence of synchronicity that helped me clarify my thoughts this morning. Integrating all these things is something I will now do."
Paracelsus said "Diseases have a cure in nature if one looks for it." And he did find cures no others were able to do. In fact Paracelsan medicine is what real science is all about. Observe nature (reality or God) and conclude how or discern the truth. Here is another lesson being re-learned.

A stomach-churning concoction of mashed-up garlic, wine and stomach bile that was used to treat eye infections over 1,000 years ago just might hold the key to killing antibiotic-resistant superbugs today, say British researchers.
The discovery was made thanks to a curious Anglo-Saxon and Vikings Studies professor at the University of Nottingham, named Christina Lee. She wanted to test one of the strange-sounding potions listed in "Bald’s Leechbook," a 9th century textbook written in Old English that is preserved in the British Library.
So she enlisted the help of microbiologists from the university’s Centre for Biomolecular Sciences to recreate one of the recipes for treating styes, those annoying eyelash follicle infections.

To their amazement, the researchers found that the mixture was highly effective at wiping out MRSA, or methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, a bacterial strain that causes thousands of hospital-aquired infections. In fact, they say, it performed as well as, if not better than conventional antibiotics.
In order to recreate the recipe, the researchers had to grind together garlic with a variety of onion called cropleeks, along with wine and "bullocks’ gall," which is old-fashioned terminology for bile from the stomach of a cow.
The recipe said to let the mixture stand in a "brass vessel" for nine days, wring it through a cloth "and about night time apply it with a feather to the eye." As brass vessels were hard to come by, the team used glass bottles instead and added in squares of brass sheeting.
They then tested the resulting mixture on MRSA samples grown in a lab on human collagen. They also tested it on mice with MRSA-infected wounds.
To the researchers' astonishment, the mixture was able to kill off most of the bacteria in both models.
Interestingly, when they tested each of the ingredients alone on the bacteria, none had any effect. But when combined together as explained in the recipe, only one bacterial cell in 1,000 survived.
University microbiologist Steve Diggle says he was astonished to find the recipe worked.
“When we built this recipe in the lab, I didn't really expect it to actually do anything. When we found that it could actually disrupt and kill cells in S. aureus biofilms, I was genuinely amazed," he said in a statement.
Fellow microbiologist Dr. Freya Harrison says the finding is an important one, given the growth of antibiotic resistance and the lack of any new antimicrobial agents on the horizon.
She says her team is now seeking more funding to extend this "fascinating" area of research, looking to the past to find modern weapons against our most difficult pathogens."
