As Above so Below
As Within so Without
Once upon a time all cultures were shamanic cultures.
Our ancestors had a very different perception of the World, they understood that Life was more than meet the eye and everything they did came from that perspective. They knew of other realms existing in the same space, realms that were not visible yet as important. They knew how to communicate and interact with them and did so on a daily basis, giving meaning to the ordinary.
Shamanism is not a religion, it is a knowledge, it is the understanding that all living beings have a spirit, an energy. Our ancestors saw everything as a being, even a tree or a rock.To them everything material was living.
It might be challenging for us to grasp what this means because we have forgotten about the invisible part of Life and so we tend to discard it, but unfortunately by discarding it we are missing half of Life!
The energetic part of a being is as invisible and as important as breath, it holds vital informations. The shamanic cultures knew of this and worked in partnership with it.
Shamanism is about balance and interaction, communication and connection. It is a partnership between the visible and the invisible.
