By shamanists, do you mean shamans or people that just follow a shamanistic lifestyle? Also for future reference and as a tip when asking for help on the forums; it is much easier and more efficient if you be as specific and detailed as possible, more so about what kind of help or assistance your seeking so it is easier and quicker for people to help you.

Also, you're not going to get good help when you tell people who can and who cannot comment on your forum posts. These are open forums and any one who is a member, with the ability to comment on a post, can comment no matter what you say about who can and cannot comment. Not to mention, stating your preferred suggestions, for those who can comment, will more like shy away people who can answer your questions from actually answering them.
I have a shaman teacher, he talks about energy, the different planes of reality such as the astral plane, the spiritual plane, the physical plane and so on and so fourth, he teaches that everything is connected and everything works together, he also says even a rock has a spirit if you just observe a rock or ask it something it will teach you something, he also says that everything has energy, especially crystals and auras and chakaras, he's as healer, every time I meditate with him he tells me to imagine a gateway or a arch way that goes into another realm, he says to feel the sunlight warm your face, go to a happy spiritual place in your mind, he says feel the love, compassion, and kindness there, he says to smell the flowers and to see the clouds in the air, he says to think of happy things, you could think of a water fall as well and touch it, and the water should feel like a loving warm feeling, he tells me to meet my spirit guide there and ask him to talk to me and guide me, sometimes in this spiritual place you will be taught by symbols and metaphors and similes about yourself and your life, if something is dark their it could be your own demons or negative stuff you should change in your life, he also says you can meet the great spirit there, it's like the god of some native americans, he's the spirit of everything, also he says to feel a blanket or sheet of energy that's made of light to cover you, that's basically your aura recharging, also you can vibrate your chakaras outward and fill your heart with positive energy as well as your heart chakara, he says to rotate them and align them and get grounded so you can be in perfect balance and harmony, and he says love and good conquers everything, and he says evil is weak and is easily defeated, also he says to ignore evil and stick with good and love, also you can meet your animal totems at your spiritual place in the spiritual plane. I will teach you more after he teaches me more I have a lot to learn, blessed be!
also a medicine bag can offer protection and attract good spirits, keeping feathers in a medicine bag can ward off evil spirits or absorb them, a crystal can give off energy and attract energy, perfume can attract good spirits to you and your medicine bag too, also here's a cool thing, if you go outside and do a rain dance, you hop around on one foot while your knee is raised high and dance like this on each foot with right foot to left foot and ect. and spin around in a circle while doing this and chanting a native american chant as loud as you can can cause the clouds to rain. Some people say shouting vibrations on a cloudy day can cause clouds to rain.
also you can go on a spirit journey by fasting and going out to the woods and finding your own water and stuff to drink, and once you go into a trance like state or meditate after fasting a few days then you can have a Revelation and a spirit journey, and meet your guide there, you can also communicate with your guide or he or she will come to you, usually the guide comes to you in a spirit journey and you learn about your life in a deep meaning and you know what you should do, also if you go into a sweat lodge and once you are dehydrated you can also meet your spirit guide, also about something things with incense or smoke, you say a short prayer to summon a spirit or the great spirit and he may show himself to you in smoke patterns or he will protect you if it's a prayer with the good scent of smell and it will attract good energy and spirits. anyways that's all for today.
