The Archeologic Signature of Shamanism

Shamanistic Cave Paintings

Yoga science is possibly the remnants of ancient shamanistic practices. Its miscellany have been excavated in Greenland, Siberia, Nepal and Kazakhstan. It has been around since Paleolithic times. The yogis in the ancient Himalayas were essentially seeking to strip themselves of their limited perception. This is the way of the shaman. Fusion with the natural world is a means to strip away our egoic artifice. This is also the way of the shaman. While shamans are considered spiritual healers and miracle workers, so are adepts and enlightened yogic gurus. Whether shamanistic yoga was practiced first in Siberian jungles or the highest point on earth, in the Mahalangur, we can be assured that our collective inheritance of spiritual wisdom rests in its teachings. Following are some articles written by a living teacher, Jade Wahoo Grigori, a shaman with Mongolian ancestry an initiated into the shamanic arts since 1956, at the age of five. His website is Shamanic.net.

On Forgiveness

Forgiveness. At this time of the Winter Solstice there is a natural resonance that is resplendent with the song of Forgiveness. It is a quality of Spirit easily accessed, embodied, activated and experienced. Forgiveness is the key in which the song of life is sung at the Winter Solstice, just as Appreciation is at the time of the Summer Solstice.

Forgiveness is, however, not something we do. It is not something we offer to another (nor our own Self). Forgiveness is a state of being, a frequency at which our Soul resonates when Forgiveness sings its song. When we are in the state of Forgiveness we may hold attention upon the presence of another (or our own Self), embracing that person in Forgiveness. . . read more

On Sacred Re-Union

The journey of Mén-zu had been long. Emerging from the Womb of His Becoming, in his silvery ship he sailed atop the depths that had claimed him as its own for the full three days past. From the scarlet, into deepest blue, his sail was hoisted and filled with each passing night.

His Home, bereft of attention, held him not. The Kingdom, likewise, has failed to fill him with its splendor. Even the Sacred Mysteries, the singing of the Priestesses, were silent in the holy places.

The House of his Parents was troubled with change. He felt their constraints upon his life had become too much to bear. Rather than lose his dignity, Mén-zu thanked them for their kindness and values they had given him during his upbringing, then set forth during the night. By means of his silvery boat he set forth. Across the Indigo Sea Mén-zu went in his silvery boat. . .read more
