The Life Of A Shaman


Where do I start or how should I begin? I've been given this gift and this curse of living as a Shaman. My journey started few years ago in my little one bedroom apartment of course I've always knew there was something about me that attracted the thoughts of others. When I first moved to this apartment, I knew I was not alone. I felt the present of a little girl who must have died in the closet of my bedroom. I just figure we both can coexist together because I didn't feel any negative energy from her. As the months went, things started to change. I started hearing her, she would tried to have conversations with me which I would ignored.

Then one night I felt really tired so I slept early at about closed to 10:00 p.m., this really loud scream of a woman being dragged into the across apartment woke me up. She was screaming for my help, somehow she got loose and knock on my door, asking me to let her in. At first I wanted to call the police but, then I asked myself, what if I was only imagining all this, what would I tell the police? So I told myself I would wait because if I heard it my neighbors must had too. As I listen on she was dragged to the apartment across from mind and gotten her throat slashed. I waited for any police arrival, but there was none so I force myself back to sleep. My alarm woke me up and I left for work the next morning. I check for blood stain but there was none. Later on that night as I walked into my apartment I knew something was wrong, usually the little girl would meet me, instead she was hiding in the closet like she was scare of someone or something.

As night filled I had a bad feeling that there was more of us in my apartment. I just pushed that thought into the back of my mind and went to sleep anyway. I tossed and turn couldn't fall asleep, in this processed my eyes open to a woman standing at the bottom of my bed looking at me at the moment my body tensed up and it froze on me. I can hear and see what was going on around me yet couldn't move to defend myself. The woman that I saw came around my bed and lay next to me. I was so scared all I could do was to closed my eyes and force my body to ignore her. This when on for awhile then I dosed off. This process went on for a few weeks, finally I couldn't take it anymore so I call up a Shaman. He knew what was wrong and told me I should seek help from a spiritual guide or else I might go crazy. So I went and pick him up, he came and cast out the woman and the little girl in my apartment, and left me two dragon statues as guardian. He told me I should light white candle for them. Things were better after the performing and then one night as I was lighting up the candle for them, they spoke to me. They said I was gifted and it won't be long before I'll have to do the work of a Shaman. It was true, not too long after I become a shaman.

Ever since then I helped many others who are tormented by demon or just in need of healing for the body and soul. I've also call back a few loved ones for some friends and family members of mine. For many years I brought light to those that were in the dark and helped many to find their ways again, it felt good to be able to be there for them. Now, why do I call it a curse when I'm able to bring happiness to other, well while I was a helping hand for others things around me fill apart, it seems like each time I helped someone I brought that unhappiness into my own home. It's like I can help others but not myself. Now, I stand broken and alone, my wife just left not too long ago and it's seem that problem surrounding me just keeps growing. What I don't understand is that why is all this happening to me? I asked, but there's no answer so I came to accept the fact that this is the life of a Shaman. Maybe, we are not meant to have joy and peace, and I'm only here to lead to way for the broken to be heal and the lost to be found. Can anyone enlighten me?

To help dead people or living, drains you mentally and physically! You need to be connected with a higher spiritual power (which for me is Jesus, and His powerful and loving Holy Angels and saints... Why would I need any UNKNOWN and UNPROVEN spirit to be my guide?). In my orthodox christian religion, we have priests who hear hundreds of sin confessions a week... People unload all their problems, sins and wickedness onto the priest! But he prays to Jesus to help these people, and trusts in him. That's why he doesn't fall into deppression, or go mad and hang himself! LOL! Can you even cope with your own problems, let alone others', without help from somewhere? Anyway, see my PROPHILE for an amazing book by a powerful shaman, read what happened to him. Good luck!

P.S. Book experts are hilarious. And the 'quoters' that use their 'knowledge' to judge are even funnier. BUYER BEWARE.:)

I read through these posts and you have the best comment of all! "...I was born with a gift to see the spirits in this world and the next, I'm like the door that connect this world to the other one. Books can only explain so much one has to live,see,feel and gone to the spirit world to fully come to an understanding of a Shaman... To know what I mean."

They're not going to know what you mean. Keep trusting your instincts. Shamans tend to suffer in the areas they are gifted to heal. No worries. You will be whole. Your gifts NOT BOOKS will bring you the answers.

I have found some of the readings have been merely confirmation of what I've been NATURALLY given to know in my spirit. So I know EXACTLY what you mean and how you feel. I too have been at that place where I was angry with God for not letting me help myself with my gifts but I have helped so many others. But, I was wrong (learnt through personal experiences I'm not quite willing to share in this space). Forget what you "feel" and be encouraged knowing that you're never really alone. Remind yourself of the love messages I'm sure you've been hearing lately. I would hear them too when I felt how you're feeling now. I didn't want to hear them and would get quite upset at them but you'll soon let go and start to believe them and realize everything is all right. ~Love and Light

You were told you were gifted eh? I would very much like to talk to you... If you still check the comments on here. I am looking for gifted... And perhaps I may help you. I think I may know the reason for more and more unhappiness. And I may be able to help you re-find happiness, and more. Please contact me at s_breniser ( [at] )

Hello. My name is Debbie. When I was a little girl I had "knowings" about people around me. I told my mother about some of my "knowings" and she said these things weren't true. So I began to doubt myself. Later, I learned my "knowings" were true. Now I'm an adult and I have "knowings" frequently, and I always trust the information. Sometimes I receive urgent advice in my own voice but I don't think the advice in coming from me. I follow the advice because it seems wise to do so, and it seems to want to keep me out of harms way.

In the past, I've told friends about my "knowings" if I received information about them or their boyfriends or their husbands, but I've lost friendships over doing this, so now I just keep the information to myself. I have learned people prefer not to hear the truth about themselves or their loved ones sometimes.

My grandmother and Mom have crossed over, but they pop into see me sometimes. I don't see them, but they make their presence known. And I love this! When my Mom first let me know she was here, it frightened me a lot. But then I was very excited by the idea.

I have heard the audible voice of my spirit guide twice. He had a loud deep baritone voice as though he were speaking under water. He said "Good Morning." I was working at my computer at the time. It was 10:30am. It scared me so bad I would have run out of the house if I could have. But I would have run passed where I had heard the voice, and I sure wasn't going to do that, so I just sat paralyzed in my computer chair for 30 minutes. After calming down I got up and walked around the house and went outside and took some deep breaths and realized what happened. I feel very grateful, and wish I could hear from him again.

Are there people like me out there? Is there anyone out there who are truly joyous about living side by side with their departed loved ones. Do you look forward, like me, to the signs during the day, or during the week, that they are with you? Isn't it glorious to receive special information from the beyond, such as a warning sign?

Please tell about spectacular personal experiences!

Also, do you not feel a special protection? I feel angels protect while I'm driving. Do you? I can't tell you have many times I have almost been hit by other drivers on the highway. Others cars have been so close to me I have closed my eyes in horror knowing we would collide. But there was no collision so I opened my eyes again and continued driving.

My stories of protection go on and on. I want to write a book about my paranormal experiences. But I don't simply want to talk about myself. I want to include the experiences of others. I have toyed with this idea of a book for about 2-3 years. I didn't know where to go to meet other people like me. But then I found this site.

When I read your stories, I think what touches me most is the self-doubt that many of you are experiencing. I understand this because I went through it as well. I want you all to know it's temporary. That self-doubt will pass. You are not crazy. Each one of you is gifted and blessed, although I realize it may not always feel that way. You are spectacular human beings! Hang on to that knowledge.

If you are willing to share your experiences with me, please do so, at debbie73160 at I am particularly looking for people (kids of all ages) who have positive experiences with the supernatural or with their departed loved ones, etc.

Also, I want to know how the departed describe the other side. What is it like living there? What is God like? Have you seen God? Is there a Devil? Is there a Hell?

To what extent can our guardian angels help us? Can they help us find jobs? Can they help us come up with the few extra dollars when we are short of the rent money?

What about healing angels? When we are sick or our beloved pets are sick, will they help heal our pets? What are the angels' names?

Please do not send me any information that I cannot publish in my upcoming book. With your stories, please send your first and last name, city and state you're from, and telephone number in case I need to call you for clarification. I will only print your last initial if you request it. Thank you.

Deborah Nelson

This story more sound like a ghost story than anything. So I believe he can see ghosts just like a lot of people can.

As for elementals. Everyone seem to be one these days.
I personally will take their claims with a grain of salt.

Shamans are not doors to the spiritworld.
What you are referring to is gatekeepers and these are gods not mortals 😐

I can open up portals, but I need the permission of specific gatekeepers.

It is good that you have spirit guides. But a wise spirit guide will also advise you like mine to read books and history about actual shamans while you are still learning to become one.

Let me explain, I have no learning on how to become a Shaman,,, I was born with a gift to see the spirits in this world and the next, I'm like the door that connect this world to the other one. Books can only explain so much one has to live,see,feel and gone to the spirit world to fully come to an understanding of a Shaman. Spirit guide I have many and yes they are the one that helps me on this path of mine. To sum it up you got to live outside of the box to know what I mean.

Shaman walk between worlds some call it the spirit world other call it the shadows. The veil of the living and the dead is maintained by the shamans this what I read and taught to believe.

If you are interested in becoming a shaman though, it will greatly help if you get at least one spirit guide.

I now finished reading this story.
Shamanism is a discipline to learn and not an ability.

I have a friend who has been studying how to become a celtic shamanic priest for years and it is a lot of hard work even though he came from an ancient magical blood line.

I just wanted to clear the misconception here.

You said that you sensed a girl in your room. You have ESP.

Shamanism is an art to learn, you cannot wake up one morning and simply become one.

Google up some books and take a good read.

You will see what I am talking about ❤

I also help tormented souls also.
I have an experience over at the ghost story site.
It is called 'The Amerindian Warrior'
The moderator there helped me a lot with this tortured soul who first sound to me was a growl.
You can take a read if you like.

Thanks for the insight... All I ask if it's not too much pray for me too. Things are getting very stressful these days, here in this world and the next, I just feel as though there's this big war going on in the other world and it's affecting us,,,

I hope you can come to peace with the "gift" that you have. I think you are a wonderful human being for helping others when they are in trouble. I don't believe that you are meant to be miserable. If there problems are loaded onto you, you should be able to unload them from your life. Meditate, and ask your "guide" to help you. We all have a choice. Sometimes we need help with the choices we make. I think we all have a point in our lives where it seemed everything went wrong, and we were miserable. Have faith, it will get better:)

Wow that is a very interesting story and I have had similar things happen to me as well. For me I'm learning more and more about myself each day and expecting my different and need to grow my powerful with my psychic abilities because I have to purpose on this earth to do which a psychic told me.

1. I most to help this world before something happens and it all ends before

2. I post to help other psychics, epically teens to help them understand there abilities and not to be afraid. And be a mentor and help all of them have control of there abilities and they can chose to try and live a normal life or go out and help others like I'm post to do.

So if you want to know more about me just email me and will talk. I think you and I can learn a lot from each other =]
