I believe that there is only one God, Universal Mind, Higher Power, Brahma, Yahweh, Elohim, Allah, Spirit, or whatever name you choose to use. I also believe that this Higher Power often uses people, places, things, or moments in time, in its constant effort to reach us, teach us, guide us, and further our personal growth on this, our journey of Spiritual Enlightenment. I also believe that God oftentimes imbues objects with the power to heal, to increase the effectiveness of prayer, and uses them as a focal point to raise awareness of God’s presence. All the world’s religions hold someplace holy, a book sacred, or place some significance in an object, medallion, or artifact.
A Shaman's way of life is one of constant awareness of the spiritual energy that surrounds them. It is for this reason that I accept and follow many of their beliefs, practices, rituals, rites, and ceremonies, and consider it a great honor to do so.
I am not a Shaman. Shaman is a title bestowed upon someone by the Shaman Elders or the individuals 'tribe', and I would never presume to call myself one,
