Influencing Cancer By Applying Forgiveness And A New Mindset

by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
I am excited to share with you, that I will be taking part in the lineup of the 4th Trew Fields Festival, United Kingdom’s first holistic health and cancer awareness festival in 2020!!! I am aware that this is still a long time to go, but my joy needs to be shared already ;-). Over the past years I increasingly had the possibility to work with people confronted in their life with the disease cancer. Cancer, in this moment of time on planet earth, is considered a major public health problem worldwide and many are battling to find medical cures and ever more aggressive treatments.
In order to collectively calibrate our mindset toward a healthy version of understanding for the
Golden Age of Aquarius on earth, we have to keep an open mind and take the complete picture under consideration. A collective creation that has the power to impact so many beings in the world, might only be shifted when we bring the metaphysical level, the spiritual level and the material outcome back into alignment.

In my own life, I made my experience with the disease in the age of 24years. In a random consultation with my gynecologist I received a diagnosis of pap level four, after having a test only half a year before, and I was told immediate surgery was of highest importance. In the same 7minute consultation I was informed that my uterus might be removed within the surgery, as it was unclear how far it had already spread in my body.
Considering my generally rather good health, my age and the fact that I had not given birth to children so far, that was a huge shock, and an absolute life changer for me. I remember lying in the hospital bed only a few days after receiving the diagnosis and quietly thinking to myself, “ok body – if this is the only way how you can reach out to get my attention, than I will have to start listening to you directly”. Looking back today, I know that this was the moment when my shamanic nature kicked in and I started filtering everything I learned about bodily disease through a spiritual filter, to than approach it with shamanic solutions. The birth of my inner work with the elements, my calling to Guatemala, the strength of the impacts I can today bring into my services to others and the death of the disease cancer in my body.

In an article from the website forever conscious, called “The Metaphysical Cause For Cancer“, I read the other day what Louise Hay has to say about the metaphysical level:
I have always believed that disease manifests on an energetic or emotional level first and then onto a physical level. In an energetic Universe, this theory holds true for the creation of everything and everyone. Louise Hay, who is an expert on the metaphysical causes of disease states that cancer is often a product of unresolved fears or traumas.
According to her book, “You Can Heal Your Life“, Cancer is caused by-
Deep hurt. Longstanding resentment. Deep secret or grief eating away at the self. Carrying hatreds.”
Louise herself developed cancer and pinpointed the spiritual and emotional cause to the childhood abuse that she had never worked through. It was only once she worked through the trauma and emotions that bubbled within her that she was able to fully eradicate the cancer from her body.This are two forgiveness phrases I am particularly fond of: 
IF I HAVE HARMED YOU IN ANY WAY,
DURING MY SPIRAL DANCE OF CREATION,
KNOWINGLY OR UNKNOWINGLY,
THROUGH MY OWN CONFUSIONS AND INPURITYS,
I ASK FOR YOUR FORGIVENESS

I’M SORRY
PLEASE FORGIVE ME
THANK YOU
I LOVE YOU

A very valuable source of support from the higher realms can be found in the energy field of the Ascended Master Buddha Gautama. He is also known as The Enlightened Being or The Buddha. He was the founder of Buddhism in India. The Buddha can help to energetically translate, transform and clarify our most profound survival fears for us. His light has an impact on all levels of our spiral dance of creation (what we call past – present and future), cleansing us from the past and preparing us for the future.

THE BUDDHA GAUTAMA PRAYER
I bow to the highest,
to the “I AM” awareness.
So all lower levels of existence may be blocked for me,
and I might be lead to the higher vibrations of existence.
And to set me free from all my manifestations
of birth, age, sickness and death.

To help us understand the context between the Master’s teaching and our ability to influence our physical body on metaphysical level, I gathered here ten of his best known quotes:
1) You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
2) All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon.
3) The mind is everything. What you think you become.
4) Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.
5) Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.
6) You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
7) Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
8) No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path
9) In the end, these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?
10) Not even death has to be feared by the one who lived wisely.

And for the material/physical level, well there we have traditional school medicine, natural medicine and as I extensively explained in my post called “Holistic Nutrition For The Awakening Path“, there is much we can do for ourselves in daily life. Dear ones, I hope this bits and pieces of my own personal story and the insides about the spiritual background that builds the illusion of sickness which than expresses as Cancer in our lives, will help you approach all physical discomfort in future from a higher perspective. Start practicing today and increase the quality of your life daily! 
Love and Blessings

Integrating The Current Waves Of Christ Consciousness

ChristusBuddhaby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
in Thursday’s post about
the Massive Wave Of Energetic Downloads & Angelic Numeric Guidance that was washing over us these days, I spoke about the increased synchronicity that appears in our lives now. And synchronicity it is, that together with so much blessing energy from heavens above, the earth herself is shaking all over the world – while pacha mama is also adjusting and extends into the higher vibrations. Just as the hermetic law of correspondence states: Above as Below! And this is just the beginning of her adjustment! According to the seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado a warning is out that “current conditions might trigger at least four more earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude.

In my post “A Right To Live – Humanity in Harmony with Mother Earth & the Nature Forces” I pointed out, that since month now, we have been invited by the collective awakening energies to build a stronger bond with the forces of the nature kingdom. And this bond we will need now to hold our faith and stay in our deepest connection with the  inner guidance of our own souls. In case media jumps on the fear train, hold your space and seek help from the Realms of the Ascended Masters! A force that can be particularly helpful to integrate the intense waves from above and below, is the energy field of Buddha Gautama.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

The Buddha Gautama Prayer
I bow to the highest,
to “I AM” awareness.
So all lower levels of existence may be blocked for me,
and I might be lead to the higher levels of existence.
And to set me free from all my manifestations of birth, age, sickness and death

lThese are some of Buddha Gautama’s Quotes that help me remember what’s important 
1) You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
2) Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
3) No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
4) A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.
5) However many holy words you read, however, many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?
6) The mind is everything. What you think you become.
7) All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon.

8) It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.
9) There is nothing so disobedient as an undisciplined mind, and there is nothing so obedient as a disciplined mind.
10) You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
11) Conquer anger with non-anger. Conquer badness with goodness. Conquer meanness with generosity. Conquer dishonesty with the truth.
12) Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
13) Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
14) There isn’t enough darkness in all the world to snuff out the light of one little candle.
15) If a man speaks or acts with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.
16) In the end, these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?
17) Ardently do today what must be done. Who knows? Tomorrow, death comes.
18) Not even death has to be feared by the one who lived wisely.aaI hope this quotes and the prayer are motivation for you, to make yourself familiar with this beautiful source of divine light and guidance!! It can be more than helpful to have a friend like Gautama in the Ascended Master realms!! And having a relationship with this wonderful Master can enable you to become “ TRULY FEARLESS”!! Hope you enjoy his powerful energy field and find comfort in his arms, while the world is shaking of the old world paradigms to make way for the Golden Age!
Blessings an Faith!

The Gathering Of The Tribes & Community in San Marcos La Laguna

maxresdefaultby Edith Boyer-Telmer
Dear Friends,
over the last few month I have shared information and insides how the collective awakening into the Golden Age of Aquarius will transform our Paradigms for Community Living and gathering in Soul Tribe, as we planed by Soul Contracts. In the last two days I posted that the time has come for the tribes to unite and how it is on us to develop the emotional intelligence needed to succeed. If you follow my posts regularly, than you also know by now about my second home San Marcos La Laguna, Solola Guatemala. A place where international traveler gather, many foreigner have found a second home, and the locals are from the very humble and gentle Kaqchickel tribe. A mix that allows us all intense cultural exchange and deep learning from another.
And of course such a merging of that many cultures, traditions and different worldview’s, is also filled with the challenges to truly listen to another, respect each others ways and seek to find common ground, that allows all groups involved to live their life authentically, peaceful and stress free. Over the past few month the resistance of the original town people against curtain culturally challenging behaviors has suddenly increased, and so it is time for us to step up, listen and learn from another again right now.
Being aware that this is truly the time where the doors of heavens one more time opened, to shower us with clarity and guidance for the new paradigms of community and tribal living, San Marcos is collectively spot on. We are also known as people with inspirational initiatives and so I was not surprised to find yesterday an invitation on facebook, to gather the beings in town for a speaking circle of Native American style, and see how far we can get this very moment in time. Read here the invitation, and the first steps for solution finding and better communication, the San Marcos crowd came up with!mujeres-con-sus-trajes-tradicionales-en-san-marcos-la-laguna_galeria_principal_size2
Dear San Marcos Family,
I am suggesting a ‘town gathering’ open to all who are willing to be a part. The tension regarding mutual respect between locals, imported residents and tourists has gotten out of hand. There are many who want to help, but don’t know how. Though I understand it’s not my place to take charge in this matter, as someone who cares for and wants to help build this beautiful community, I feel the need to at least try to organize people into an awareness of the issues at hand. A collaborative, non-heirarchal and genuine approach can help shape life for all present and future San Marcos stakeholders. Let’s get together so we can move together. I am suggesting perhaps Sunday afternoon. While I envision this meeting happening in the main square under the comfort of the great tree, I also see reasons that may be less than ideal. I am open to all advice and thank everyone in advance for your cares and concerns, hard work and dedication to unity.
Love you Marcosians, let’s chat.

Comment 1:
As a local and being part and understanding all the parties basically at some level, having gone for a week and just now hearing just the surface of the stuff that has been gong on, you can count on me for whatever is needed,Guatemala is a country of connections and if its for the good of our pueblo.. being resourceful could help.
Comment 2:
Yes, a real tricky subject. Is it Xenophobia and cultural conservatism? And what is the right balance between preserving cultures and being open to change? Is the new age more about allowing the clash of cultures to create a new openness? What is our/your/my role in bringing much needed change to the world we live in. Problems in this community has been described to me as Guatemalan resistance to progress. How do we create change without offense? Is it possible, or are revolutions by necessity violent or confrontational.
And what is progress? The grip of the Church, oppression of women, etc does present a conundrum. A fine balance, a razor’s edge exists between being true to yourself in spirit and respecting local custom. I know that preserving or learning from indigenous cultures and their closeness to nature is fundamental to planetary survival, and our new “hippy” culture largely carries those values, and the local customs are largely influenced by Catholic conservatism. A fine pickle we’re in. Takes some finesse to navigate this delicate balance.;
Comment 3:
I appreciate the vulnerability this community is willing to enter when I read this thread. Which to me, is an important aspect to be considered when a proposed town gathering , with the desire to hear , share, and come to better relationship and understanding, is at hand. I personally have no huge stake in San Marcos; I do have a large stake in the humans currently figuring out how to live together on this planet. To me this thread speaks to a universal need. I would love to see a gathering of this sort end with hugs and smiles, and most of all, with open hearts for all.
However, I feel personally afraid to attend , let alone speak, at a gathering with no facilitator. For the reason that in order for coherence and understanding to arise in a group, I believe there needs to be a strong and clear container for it. Perhaps someone would volunteer to facilitate who is experienced in these ways and is not directly involved with the issues? Someone who feels they can hold space for the container, for the dialogue? To call on people and summarize what has been said, to determine if breaks are needed, if something is off topic, etc. a space keeper entrusted with the stated mission and goals of such a town gathering. The goal stated that I see is for an organization of awareness of the issues at hand, with a theme of unity and peace. Perhaps the goal of this meeting could be to
a) come to shared understanding of the issues at hand and
b) come up with a goal for what future meetings would try to accomplish…. and possibly
c) determine a meeting structure to support future town meetings to happen.
I am in complete agreement with a collaborative, non-hierarchical and genuine approach to this meeting and hope that my comment here elaborates on one option to move in this direction.wide-1000-San.Marcos.la.Laguna-1
I attended circles that were fruitful, without hierarchy, people listening. An amazing experience. People sharing and listening. So I know it’s possible. I know how it can work. I know it is very hard to keep this kind of circle together. It would need a strong group of people facilitating such a circle here in this town. A spontaneous circle under the tree in the center cannot hold space for the ones who don’t have a loud voice. Whoever has knowledge of talking circles and feels it is possible to pull this off, I’ll help. Basic rules: only one person speaks at a time, everybody has a chance to speak and to be heard (one by one in a circle, no cross talk, wait your turn) speak from the heart, no judgements, no accusations.
Dear Ones, I hope this words are help and inspiration for you and more communities, to take their first steps on the way to unite the tribes again!! Sending Love and Blessings!!!

Buddha Gautama – The Ascended Master For The Shift 10/27-11/11/8

9by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
you might have heard the news, we are again in an increasing wave of shifting frequencies, coming from the heavens above ;-).. For the next two weeks, until November 11th, we are invited to make space in our inner world, for even more downloads from the divine blueprint for the Golden Age of Aquarius. The Ascended Master in charge of our divine support system for this special shift, is Buddha Gautama. Also known as The Enlightened Being or The Buddha, the founder of Buddhism in India. There incoming energies are expected to be similar as strong in effect on emotional, mental and physical level, as experienced during the intense energy impact in September.
The Buddha can help to energetically translate, transform and clarify these energies for us. His light has an impact on all levels of our spiral dance of creation (what we call past – present and future). I included here 21 of his most famous quotes about self-worth, self-responsibility, health, the illusion of death and the topic of anger, as well as a prayer I personally love and use a lot! Have fun working with this contact, he is a delight to hang out with!! 😉

1) You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.
2) Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
3) Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.
4) Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.
5) No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
6) A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.
7) However many holy words you read, however, many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?158) The mind is everything. What you think you become.
9) All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon.
10) It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.
11) There is nothing so disobedient as an undisciplined mind, and there is nothing so obedient as a disciplined mind.
12) You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
13) Conquer anger with non-anger. Conquer badness with goodness. Conquer meanness with generosity. Conquer dishonesty with the truth.
14) Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
15) Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
16) There isn’t enough darkness in all the world to snuff out the light of one little candle.
17) Should a seeker not find a companion who is better or equal, let them resolutely pursue a solitary course.
18) If a man speaks or acts with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.
19) In the end, these things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?
20) Ardently do today what must be done. Who knows? Tomorrow, death comes.
21) Not even death has to be feared by the one who lived wisely.

The Buddha Gautama Prayer

I bow to the highest,
to “I AM” awareness.
So all lower levels of existence may be blocked for me,
and I might be lead to the higher levels of existence.
And to set me free from all my manifestations of birth, age, sickness and death

8I hope this quotes and the prayer are motivation for you, to make yourself familiar with this beautiful source!! Having a relationship with this wonderful Master can enable you to become “FEARLESSLY YOU”!! Hope you enjoy his energy field as much as I do and have fun practicing!! And don’t forget to keep breathing deeply what ever comes your way!
Blessings an Love ;-)!

Woman is by nature a shaman…

This is a brief summary of a visual presentation, first shown in 1986, which was given in September 2005 at the Shamanic Studies Conference in San Rafael, California.

A Chukchee proverb declares, “.” (1) Yet the female dimension of this realm of spiritual experience has often been slighted. Mircea Eliade believed that women shamans represented a degeneration of an originally masculine profession, yet was hard put to explain why so many male shamans customarily dressed in women’s clothing and assumed other female-gendered behaviors. Nor does the masculine-default theory account for widespread traditions, from Buryat Mongolia to the Bwiti religion in Gabon, that the first shaman was a woman.
In fact, women have been at the forefront of this field worldwide, and in some cultures, they predominate. This was true in ancient China and Japan, as it still is in modern Korea and Okinawa, as well as among many South African peoples and northern Californians such as the Karok and Yurok. There are countless other examples, including the machi of the Mapuche in southern Chile and the babaylan and catalonan of the Philippines.
images
Images, oral traditions, and historical descriptions show women as invokers, healers, herbalists, oracles and diviners, ecstatic dancers, shapeshifters, shamanic journeyers, and priestesses of the ancestors. The Chinese Wu were ecstatic priestesses who danced to the music of drums and flutes until they reached trance, receiving shen (spirits) into their bodies, healing and prophesying under their inspiration, speaking in tongues, swallowing swords and spitting fire. The power of the shen gathered around the whirling dancers was said to cause objects to rise into the air, to prevent wounds from forming when the dancers slashed themselves with knives.
Similar descriptions were recorded by Greco-Roman visitors to Anatolia: “At Castabala, in Cappadocia, the priestesses of an Asiatic goddess, whom the Greeks called Artemis Perasia, used to walk barefoot through a furnace of hot charcoal and take no harm.” (2)
Shaman
Certain female burials from ancient Central Asia have been designated as shamanic priestesses by archaeologists Natalia Polosmak and Jeanine Davis-Kimball. The priestess of Ukok (fifth century BCE) was buried in a three-foot-tall framed headdress adorned with a Tree of Life, with gilded felines and birds on its branches. Similar finds have been excavated at Ussun’ in south Kazakhstan, and from the Ukraine to the Tarim basin, with recurrent themes of the Tree of Life headdress, amulets, incense, medicine bags, and sacramental mirrors. Such mirrors are also seen in the Bactrian region of Afghanistan, held facing out against the body, and they still figure as initiatory devices wielded by female adepts in Tibet. The overwhelmingly female mikogami of Japan also kept the “sacred mirror” of the sun goddess Amaterasu.
My visual presentation Woman Shaman includes a sequence of women shapeshifting into animal form or riding on the backs of shamanic steeds. These themes recur in many shamanic traditions, and are vividly illustrated in modern Arctic carvings. An Aleut ivory (circa 1816) shows a woman shaman wearing an animal mask. Other examples from the mid-20th century include “Woman Riding a Bear” by Cecilia Arnadjuk, Repulse Bay, Canada; “Woman/Polar Bear” by Odin Maratse, Greenland; a walrus-tusked “Woman Shaman” by Nancy Pukingrnak of Baker Lake; a half-woman, half-walrus piece titled “Woman Shaman Transforming Herself”; and “Medicine Woman” by Kaka of Cape Dorset.

The darwisa or maraboutes of North Africa bear Islamic titles, but practice much older North African customs. Among the Tunisian cave-dwellers, the darwisa cures sick people from possession from the jnun. In the ritual, she plays drum rhythms to discover which jinn caused illness; when she hits the right one, the person begins to dance. Then the darwisa talks to the spirit about what caused the illness and what is required to cure it. (3)
Codices produced by Aztec artists shortly after the Spanish conquest show women presiding over the temescal (sweat lodge). One of the invocations sung by such a priestess was recorded: “Mother of the gods and us all, whose creative and lifegiving power shone in the Temezcalli, also named Xochicalli, the place where she sees sacred things, sets to right what has been deranged in human bodies, makes young and tender things growing and strong, and where she aids and cures.” (4)
curanderaInvocatory chants have remained an element of Mexican Indian shamanism. One of the great master was Maria Sabina, “the woman who knows how to swim in the sacred,” whose incantations seem to have acted as a means of entering into deep states of consciousness. Laying on of hands was part of her healing practice. Further north, in California, Bernice Torrez of the Kashaya Pomo, healed by touching and removing spirits of illness from the body of the sick person. She was the daughter of Essie Parrish, the great yomta, a title which means “Song.” This prophet-seeress carried chants for ceremonies, healing, and control of the elements.
Chant and shaking a sacred rattle are important elements in the practice of Katjambia, a Himba medicine woman in Namibia. As she shakes the rattle, she calls out Njoo, Njoo, in a “secret language from Angola.” After absorbing the negative energies into her own body, Katjambia returns to the sacred fire of her ancestors, who release them. A song by the Chilean composer and folklorist Violeta Parra celebrates the powers of the Mapuche machi, describing how she presides over the guillatún ceremonies and how her shamanizing cures the sick and brings a crop-threatening rain to an end.
The healing power of female shamans was occasionally stated to have been so far-reaching that they were described as being able to restore life to the dead. So it was told of Pa Sini Jobu, great Tungutu of the Bosso people in the middle Niger region. Her method of dancing to ecstasy and shifting into the form of a great bird echoes the story told of Isis. Both the goddess and the Tungutu are described as beating their wings over the dead (a ram, in Pa Sini Jobu’s case) and bringing them to life. (The Colchian sorceress Medea is also pictured bringing a ram to life, using a cauldron, herbs, and incantations.) In western Africa, the sorceress Kulutugubaga has the power to heal all and bring the dead to life. She is the last of the legendary Nine Sorceresses of Mande.

Reviving the dead was one of the marvels performed by Yeshe Tsogyel, a foundational figure of Tibetan Buddhism. In Lady of the Lotus Born, she says, “… In Nepal I brought a dead man back to life… My body journeyed like a rainbow in celestial fields…” (5) This 8th-century poem is loaded with shamanistic content, recast in a Buddhist mold. The shamanic Bönpo religion is known to have contributed many elements to Tibetan Buddhism.
A Manchurian epic, Nishan Shaman, turns around the story of a woman who is the most powerful shaman in the country. She is called upon to revive the son of a rich man after countless others had failed. She beats her drum, chants, and sinks as if lifeless herself while journeying to the Otherworld, where she meets up with Omosi-mama, the “divine grandmother” who “causes leaves to unfurl and the roots to spread properly,” who is the giver of souls and protectress of children. It was she who ordained that Nishan would become a great shaman.
Of course, Nishan finds the soul of the dead boy. But she is pursued by her long-dead husband, who demands to be saved as well, but she calls for a great crane to seize him and throw him back into the city of the dead. The shaman is hailed as a heroine when she comes back to the upper world and showered with riches. Later she faces repression from Confucian authorities who accuse her of not being an obedient wife, and they burn her shamanic regalia and drum. (6)
KAKAO BILD
In much the same way, Spanish colonials persecuted women shamans in the Philippines, calling them “devil-ridden old women” and “witches,” and destroying their shrines and sacred objects. (7) Maya oracles and shamans faced the same treatment; the Tzoltzil priestess María Candelaria raised an insurrection in Chiapas in 1712 to resist the repression of the indigenous religion.
Several hundred years ago, the Jesuit Acosta wrote that Peruvian witches were shapeshifters who could journey through the skies and foretell the future “by means of certain stones or other things they highly venerate.” He and other Spanish sources agreed that the witches were mostly old women.(8) The colonials imposed their own preconceptions on Peruvian shamans, notably that of the devil and flying ointments, and persecuted these Quechua and Aymara women shamans as witches.
The Peruvian Inquisition forbade seeking knowledge through dreams or signs in the sky or through vision quests: “the said women other times go out to the country by day and at night, and take certain brews of herbs and roots, called achuma and chamico and coca, with which they deceive themselves and numb their senses, and the illusions and fantastic scenes which they experience there, they think and claim afterwards as revelations, or certain news of what will happen.” (9)

Inquisitors tried the curandera Juana Icha for healing with the power of the old Quechua gods. She had offered corn meal, coca and chicha to the mountain spirit Apo Parato. An Indian informer told the monks that she “worships the earth and the stars and cries to the water.” (10)
