Was Jesus a Shaman?
Think about the following list, in comparison to what we think of when we hear the word, “shaman,” perhaps Jesus was a Shaman.
Story of blind man – Jesus instructed the man to put mud on his eyes
Tempted? Jesus purportedly said it would be better to pluck out your eye (if you couldn’t control your own lust) than lose your soul
Faith – touching hem of his garment (energy flowing through him encompassing his clothing – aura)
Prayer – all the time and in every thought
Solitude – Spent 40 nights in the wilderness
Preaching outside – walked and taught to people where they were, typically to people who did not attend church
Overthrow money changers in the temple – honor God – disruptive – he condemned the corrupt and greedy religious hypocrites
Jesus proclaimed things that were counter to what the priests in the synagogue were preaching, and spoke with authority
Essential oils – used natural elements
Alchemy – changed water into wine
Walked on water and calmed seas – controlled and “partnered with” nature
Jesus ate with publicans and so-called sinners, to the point that some labeled him “evil.”
Perhaps, we can each be our own shaman.
Perhaps, digging in the dirt when I plant seeds in the dark, moist soil, doesn’t make me a shaman, but when I repot a root bound plant, I consider how I am disrupting it for a moment, so it can have more room to grow. And somehow, that makes me feel like a shaman—at least a little bit.
And we can each, grow through the dirt. ❤️🦋🌀☀️🌚💦🌱
Do you think it’s time to disrupt religions?
God Omniscience IN us, not us IN church. You know, like when Jesus threw those moneychangers OUT of the temple. 🧐❤️🦋🌀🎼☯️🙏☮️
