In Earth Magic, Steven Farmer who is a shamanic practitioner, minister, and licensed psychotherapist discusses how ancient spiritual philosophies and practices can be used to help heal ourselves. Through these practices we can also live in harmony with the planet.
The practices and beliefs Mr. Farmer writes about have proven to help spiritual causes such as emotional illness and enhance personal power and manifestation abilities. While the groundwork may be based in shamanism, a reader doesn’t have to have in interest in it to get powerful insights.
Shamanism encompasses the belief that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. Shamans are said to treat ailments/illness by mending the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the soul/spirit restores the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness. The shaman also enters supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the community.
Earth Magic sectioned into three main parts:
- Part 1: Earth Magic and Ancient Spiritual Healing Wisdom
- Part 2: Fundamentals of Earth Magic
- Part 3: Earth Magic Healing
Each part is detailed and well written, I really like Mr. Farmers writing style. You are encouraged to keep a journal. Throughout the chapters are different exercises you can do such as Talking with the Plant People, Retrieving Your Power Animal and several meditations for Soul Work.
Earth Magic: Ancient Shamanic Wisdom for Healing Yourself, Others, and the Planet
Mr. Farmer goes beyond basic shamanism and dives into topics such as animal spirits, angels, nature spirits, sacred ceremonies and how it all connects to our healing and relationship with the Earth.
I’m a believer that teachers find their way to you when you are ready, it could be a book, a DVD, a friend…regardless of how a teacher appears, that feeling of having knowledge come to you just when it should is an amazing feeling! If this topic is of interest to you I highly recommend Earth Magic: Ancient Shamanic Wisdom for Healing Yourself, Others, and the Planet by Steven Farmer.
