ANCIENT PEOPLES OF THE NORTH
"Shaman - eagle transformation"
by Judi Wild
"Eagle soar, fly on high, touch Great Spirit-
creator of all things. Honor me, cherish me,
that I may embrace your healing power."
It is said that because the eagle soars
to the creator
it has a unique connection with the spirit world.
In tribal culture a Shaman is of this
world rather than from
this world. They are healers who transcend "the boundaries
between the everyday world and the spirit realm, between
ordinary consciousness and the dimension of visions
and dreams" with the help of animal, bird or plant spirit.
A Shaman believes that a troubled
mind & spirit
must be soothed before the body can be healed.
The SHAMAN is without gender - embracing the traits of both man & woman
Shaman - Eagle transformation by Judi Wild
When I look at this painting I feel both chaos and serenity. In the lower half of the painting the Shaman observes a disturbed world with all it's chaos and distractions. The Shaman, while transforming into an eagle diffuses this earthly negativity into a more positive energy - thus creating a more peaceful, gentle & loving world.
