do any one know the history of the shaman magic as i was meditating last night and asked about my past life i was told that in one of my past lifes i was adopted by a shaman family i think the shaman did alot of astral projection but i am not sure of their history and i would like to learn
i just finished looking up shaman this is what i found out on the net. Shamans are said to treat ailments/illness by mending the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the soul/spirit restores the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness. The shaman also enters supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afecting the community. Shamans may visit other worlds and dimensions to bring guidance to misguided souls and to ameliorate illnesses of the human soul caused by foreign elements. The shaman operates primarily within the spiritual world, which in turn affects the human world. The restoration of balance results in the elimination of the ailment.
i was also told by my spirit guide to check all of my books so i did just that in a book called witchcraft has the history of difrent tipe of witchcraft i found that the sharman people worked with the spirit world in order to heal people they also enter the spirit world through a state of trance ( astral projection) a shaman has many powers eg : shape shifting, healing, astral projection, divination prophecy and spiritual.
this is just a little of what i have found out but i am hoping to learn even more hopefully.
