The Gypsy Shaman
Shamanism is one of the oldest spiritual paths on earth,It offers a way
for people to wake up to their potential spiritual relationship with the universe.Shamanism is understood by some people to be a primitive form of
religion The word Shaman comes from Tungusic,a central Asian language group and can be literally translated as "one who is raised and
excited" The Shaman's role in many world cultures is to serve as a mediator between mankind and the spiritual forces of the Natural world .
The Shamanic tradition is based on the importance of inspiration,intuition and insight,Shamans draw their power from their relationship with the
natural world and power of their emotions as expressed in their rituals & ceremonies.The Gypsy living so close to nature is regarded by many as a
shaman,They generally do move about with the tribe but they are solitary .The shaman believes that all elements have their source of power in their
spirit world,of which they can move back and forth between the two worlds as needed. It's all pre-Aryan.It is the old faith which came before
all, which existed through and under Brahminism,Buddhism,and Mahommedanism,and which came before Angels.Fear of the spirits of death and
darkness,illness,hunger brought forth the shaman who knew all about the spirits,diseases as well as disasters,were the work of evil spirits and were
to be driven away by songs of exorcisms and performing ceremonies,but it was the extraordinary influence of the shamen himself on his patient,who
brings about the cure .
