Voyages of the soul, trance, ecstasy, and healing


(A talking cure, the healing power of Shamanic dialogue).

Little girl died.

Shaman heals
Dead little girl's mother

by hearing dialogue
from the little girl.

Dead little girl arrives
from the underworld.
"Mother, where are my
gold noserings?"

Shaman says, "They
burned in the funeral

Dead little girl says
"Mother, you were
mean to me. You
scolded me and
called me Scar-girl,
Leper-girl. You didn't
feed me."

Shaman says,"She didn't
mean it."

Dead little girl says, "I
want my necklaces ... they
were my only friends ... I

used to cripple around
bent over.  I couldn't
stand up straight.  Why
can't I have my nose
rings?  I have to go
digging, and leveling
earth (in the underworld).

"My mother gave it to
me in her womb, it's in
all of our family.  I came
out with scars all over.
The illness was passed
on to me."

Shaman says, "Then don't
pass it on, don't you give it
to your mother and little

Dead little girl says, "If I pass
it on, I pass it on: that's how
it goes."

Shaman says, "Your cough, your
choking, your scars, your wounds,
don't pass them on."

Dead little girl says, "My mom
doesn't care enough about me. (returns
to the underworld).

Dead Little girl's mother is devastated.
The Dead little girl reproaches a mirror
image of what is the mother's own

It is the evolution of the Shaman's
dialogue that comes the healing power
of Shamanism.

Cruel conversation matches feelings
of the mourner.

Eventually Dead little girl underworld
will forgive her mother and her illness
disclined to pass to her relatives.

v interesting writing it creates a dialogue on another plain, another space & explores reality, but the shaman is the most engaging invention he was quite clear i thought. tradition has it that the zombie enters the world of ghosts who do not remember they are dead & reminds them by turning a faceless face on them. anyway in my view shamanism originates in ancient persia under the goddess sofia. now its many things.

"Your cough, your
choking, your scars, your wounds,
don't pass them on."

What an astonishing insight. Yes, there is vastly more power in withholding misery than passing it on. Every moment any one of us is lost in the downward spiral, everybody loses.

The brave soul knows that mercy is strength. How lost we are without compassion. Thank you for the reminder.
