    Dr. Alim El-Bey speaks on "SHAMANIC ANIMAL SPIRIT GUIDES"

    in Spirituality

     "SHAMANIC ANIMAL SPIRIT GUIDES"


    In the shamanic belief every thing is alive and carries with it power and wisdom. Power animals are an essential component of shamanic practice. They are the helping spirit which add to the power of the shaman and are essential for success in any venture undertaken by the shaman. Shamans believe that everyone has power animals – animal spirits which reside with each individual adding to their power and protecting them from illness, acting similarly to a guardian angel. Each power animal that you have increases your power so that illnesses or negative energy cannot enter your body. 


    Everyone Has a Power Animal


    Everyone is thought to have a few of these guardian power animals, from childhood on. Over the course of her or his life the person may have several. If a power animal leaves and one does not come to take its place the individual is considered, by the shaman, to be disempowered and therefore vulnerable to illness and bad luck. Power animal retrieval is a healing where the shaman goes to find a new power animal for you.


    Honoring Power Animals


    It is important to honor your power animal. In shamanic work the power animal is essential, for a shaman who has no power is not going to have very good results. On a personal level, by honoring your power animal you let it know that its assistance is appreciated. 


    Finding Your Power Animal


    If you would like to find out who your power animal is, consulting a shamanic practitioner is an option. But to discover this on you own, you can ask for a dream and see if anything comes up. You can ask the power animal to show itself to you and if you start seeing one or another animal frequently that would be its way of revealing itself to you.

    Supporting the Major Organs

    in Self Help

    Supporting the major organs is essential to good health. Public poisons and EMF’s can harm and impair them. Natural health practices, exercise, a positive attitude and nutritious supplements help maintain these crucial organs.


    Good heart strength and rhythm, blood pressure balance and circulatory flow all need attention.
    The lungs are impaired by pollution as well as stress. There are herbs and breathing techniques that can help the lungs and improve breathing, as well as supplemental oxygen for better health.
    The pancreas releases enzyme juices for digestion. The liver is a complex organ with multiple tasks for keeping you living, working as part of a team of organs. It creates bile and recombines proteins, as well as breaking down toxins. The kidneys are involved in the elimination process, filtering out toxins from the blood. Routine support and periodic detoxification of these organs is essential for good health.

    Survival Skills and Helpful Plants

    in Self Help

    Most mass media hypnotized urban dwellers know very little about survival skills. There are basics of natural health and survival that even children should know. There are helpful plants that may be growing in your yard that could provide food, protection and other benefits. This knowledge could be crucial in an emergency situation. An exploration of fields and woods is very worthwhile, to learn to identify nature’s problems like poison ivy, ticks, stinging insects and sunburn, as well as edible plants and medicinal herbs.
