A Shaman is said to walk in two worlds... what if you are a divergent type of soul?
You are a seeker of knowledge. You commune with the spiritual realm. You have mediumship abilities (e.g., clairvoyance, clariaudience, etc.). You study the tea leaves and read the cards. You enjoy good energy. You have willful intention to bring about positive outcomes. You are a philosopher. You are a historian. You are a student of the human condition. You are a master of your own ego. You are the change in the world you have been looking for all your life.
I have been debating since I began my spiritual journey on what context to frame my studies. Am I a Shaman? But as far as I know, I am not a North American Native tribe descendant. Am I a priestess? A follower of what and who exactly?
Shaman Healer Energy Ancestors Transmutation
Mystic Spirits Intention Manifestations
Priest Spirits Source Consciousness
So what is the answer to this predicament? Add them altogether? Or, pick them all apart? I went with acronym instead. First letter of every word and see what stands out: smphsseiamct. s h a m... and s c i e n t.
Merriam Webster defines the word as:
a religion practiced by indigenous peoples of far northern Europe and Siberia that is characterized by belief in an unseen world of gods, demons, and ancestral spirits responsive only to the shamans; also : any similar religion.
Merriam Webster defines the word as: Skilful; knowing.
Does that not explain a modern spiritual student who traverses through the frequencies of physical, spiritual, and conscious modalities? A belief in an unseen world of gods, demons, and ancestral spirits that is accessed by a skilful, knowing seeker?
Therefore the path I walk will be referred to as Shamiscieness and I am a Shamiscient.
Would you like to join me on this journey as a student of the universe?
