Having used the term "Techno-Shaman" for decades, but do not recall writing about my views, here goes. Today I had a wonderful conversation with two very savvy doctors. One is a fully trained M.D. and has used Western traditional medicine for years. The other is a naturopathic physician. The best of both of these traditions makes good sense when you think about it. Why not marry them instead of arguing which way is right. Without bantering the negatives about what is the matter with medicine these days, instead I wish to tell you about Bisi from Nigeria.
I met Bisi many years ago when studying at a Florida University. She impressed me as one powerful and brilliant gal. We struck up a wonderful friendship and I learned an immense amount of humility in her presence. She had stringently trained as a witch doctor in the jungles using medicinal herbs and traditional African medicine. Why she came to America I don't know. She was studying for her degree in pharmaceuticals in order to become licensed here... as no one recognized her many gifts from Africa. I wish for the sake of America that medical doctors knew what her original training had allowed her. For example: Bisi could look at someone and diagnose through intuition, while actually seeing the aura. Yes, intuition. Yes, aura. This was her training and she did it extremely well. In the fast paced, greed-filled-over-medicated and costly testing we use here, with many negatives, and also some positives attached, we could use a dose of going back into time and seeing how the world's shamans heal. We have lost sight of the whole person. I like to joke and say that the left eye-lash doctor doesn't treat the right eye-lash. What happened to the whole person?
Throw more pills, more anti-depressants, more tests to bankrupt an already bankrupted system, but don't look at the whole person.
When did America trade in the intuitive doctor training in order to heal, and become the medical arena for profit, greed, and tossing pills, and at times using very harmful tests on virtually everything? I still know old-fashioned thinking doctors. They are dwindling and burned out from a system that isn't permitting the ancient and very spiritual art of healing.
Whole-istic aka Holistic treatment, focused on prevention whenever possible, is a far more cost-effective and more patient oriented way to treat in many cases. And it is far less harmful and injurious to the doctors practicing it than the current supermarket mode of a few moments with a patient. Drowning in paperwork never bothered the shamans of old. Lawsuits didn't either. How did a once highly revered profession become what it is today? Sometimes in order to positively move forward, we must also look to past techniques that have worked well throughout the ages. Hoping to hear from the medical professions with comments. Dr. Yanez *o*

Reposting A LAND CALLED IMAGINE
Once upon a time in a land called "IMAGINE" we lived in peace and harmony. The global horrors we now see around the clock on the news simply did not exist. Happiness and love sweetly combined with compassion and charity to bestow upon us the warmth our souls crave beyond mortal words. Can you visualize it in your mind's eye yet? Using your imagination, create a perfect heavenly safe space to escape from the daily stress we encounter in mortal life. Some call it meditation. Others name it prayer. For me, it is a "perfect heavenly safe space."
Gently and firmly shower yourselves with this lovely energy and use it spiritually, medicinally, psychologically, and then get back to me on how it makes you feel, please? It costs nothing but the effort you put into it.
