NEW ARTICLE:  SOUNDS OF THE SHAMAN
How do the Elders and Indigenous medicine peoples utilize sound in their shamanic work?

Picture the elder hovering over the sick body, rattle in hand, chanting incantations of profound wisdom and alliance with the medicine realms and its many allies.  Imagine the buffalo dancers embodying the spirit of their totems, as the drummers and singers invoke the ancestors and medicine clans.  Medicine cultures the world over incorporate profound understanding of the integral use of voice, sound instruments, awareness, and intention, to create their healing methodologies. Cultures have utilized sound, throughout human history, coupled with explicit states of consciousness, or awareness & intent, for healing, for connecting to, aligning with, for channeling, and embodying, that which they hold as Sacred, or Divine, as well as to use sound in direct healing incantations, to journey into other worlds, to awaken ecstatic states of awareness and innate well-being, to illuminate one’s authentic essence, and empower one’s inner knowing. 

The modern concepts of shamanism understand these principals, but often do not encompass the broad use of sound & awareness which ancient and contemporary medicine peoples of most traditional indigenous societies always have utilized.  This, of course, includes the connection of self to the other worlds, as a Divine Art, and, as a part of it, the Living Cosmos. But, also, to become an intermediary, through voice and intention, often with drum, rattle, or bell, etc., coupled with other-world awareness, to draw through, or bridge to, the 'other side' of intelligent life, which resides in the subtle worlds, or 'other world' realities, in higher states of realized being.  The voice has an exquisite ability to couple awareness of the other worlds with our subtle intents, and to create an extraordinary catalyst for healing, transformation, and visionary experiences.  In most cultures, it is understood that the coupling of human consciousness and feeling states, when voiced, is the most powerful tool of creation we possess.  “Because I say it, it is so,” is a mantra known worldwide in the mystical traditions, from the Americas, to India, to the Aramaic cultures, who phrased it in a way we all have played with, “Abra Cadabra!”  (Literally, Aramaic for ‘because I say it, it is so.’)
The Tibetans, whose culture is steeply based in the shamanic Bon traditions, still utilize the ancient tools of instruments, voice, and awareness drawn from their Bon heritage.  They later blended the Bon understanding with Buddhism, and daily call upon at least one aspect of the 'other worlds,' the "pure realms of Light and Sound, where the Holy Beings dwell,' ..to align with the pure essence of their guides and teachers...
