Indian Shamans perform a variety of functions depending on their respective cultures including healing, leading sacrifices, fortune-telling, and preserving traditions with music and storytelling.
Traditionally, Shamans are “called”, often by an experience of illness or injury that is not cured or healed by physicians and western medicine.
Energy healers believe that mental, emotional, spiritual or physical healing occurs when blocks to our energy fields are cleared. The belief is that every human being has a life force of energy which flows through them. It courses through the body on pathways called chakras. We also emanate an energy field called the aura.
Energy healing is based on the belief that a healer is able to channel healing energy into the person either using a hands-on approach, or hands-off, or even distant healing where the patient and healer are in different locations.
Shaman Jim Haynes talks about his work as a healer and what I can say about him is that he has a “presence” that I could describe as “eerie”! Let him move his hands over you, not touching you, and “feel” the heat or energy flowing. It’s uncanny and a little spooky. I’ve never met anyone quite like him.
Jim talks about the end of the world as we know it, caused by an astrological event predicted to occur in 2012. Who knows? He talked of his psychic powers and how he “knows” when someone is going to die. He seems to have an awareness of shifts in energy, either on a human or earth level, and has even had experiences of knowing when natural disasters were about to occur.
Does he have an unexplained calling, gift or power? Listen in to the interview on Saturday August 20th and decide for yourself.
