Shamanism is a psycho-spiritual transformational therapy for healing, dating back to the Neolithic period. The primary teachings of shamanism are based on human’s connection with nature and revolve around the well-being of each individual.

The word shaman has been derived from the word ‘saman’ in Tungus language in Siberia. It is translated to ‘one who is excited, moved, or raised’ and ‘inner heat.’ It is a known fact that shamanistic practices dominate every organized religion, generally as a part of their mystic and symbolic practices.

It is in the oldest system of consciousness transformation. Other traditional systems of consciousness transformation include yoga and alchemy. However, shamanism is different from these as it works with the soul or spirit.

Shamans are spiritual beings who work as ‘vessel’ and are blessed with the ability to heal, work with energies. It is also believed that they are able to see visions, which are invisible to other humans, said the marieclaire.com Website.

They are also credited with the ability to control the weather, witness spiritual being, interpret dreams, astral projection, and can travel between different dimensions.

Shamanism is founded on the idea that the visible world is often visited by invisible forces or spirits that interfere with the lives of the beings.

One of the unique aspects of shamanism is ‘journey’. It is said that shamans experience a journey out of their bodies into the mystic world. It is in these outer-body experiences, shamans get healing power from the deities, ancestral spirits, and animals.

The marieclaire.com reported, it is interesting to note that shamanism is soon catching up with other healing systems like yoga and meditation. Speaking to Marie Clarie, Guru Jagat, a kundalini yoga, and meditation teacher, said, “There is a shift happening, a renaissance” that is driving more people to introspect.

According to a marieclaire.com report, Vivian Diller, a psychologist, believes that the rising shaman trend has its root in declining interest in religious practices. Diller said, “Millennials are turned off by organized Western religion and are more open to religions based on Eastern philosophy. In a world that is so uncertain, there is still a desire for a sense of control, so some believe a spiritual leader holds potential answers.”

He added that an increasing number of female patients are seeking additional help with spiritual healers as compared to the male patients.

A shamanic energy session helps an individual to bring about changes in their behaviors and patterns that aid them in controlling their keep their wants and desires. It has also been established that shamanic energy sessions have been very successful where other healing systems have failed.

Here are some of the benefits associated with a shaman energy session:

  • It is highly motivational and enhances an individual’s ability to create desired life changes

Global Energy Demands Might Rise by 58 Percent Before 2050 Due to Climate Change

They tried to determine how energy demand would shift relative to today's climate under modest and high-warming scenarios

In the next 30 years, the world will see a dramatic rise in energy demand due to the impact of climate change, say researchers.

In a study, published in Nature Communications journal, the researchers maintained that the energy demand would rise by at least 11 per cent due to global warming by 2050.

For the study, the researchers’ team led by International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Austria carried out an analysis using temperature projections from 21 climate models, and population and economy projections for five socioeconomic scenarios.

They tried to determine how energy demand would shift relative to today’s climate under modest and high-warming scenarios around 2050.

The study’s findings indicated that under “modest” global warming conditions, the energy demand would rise between 11-27%. Whereas under “vigorous” warming conditions, the global energy demand would rise between 25-58%.

The magnitude of the increase depends on three uncertain factors — the future pathways of global greenhouse gas emissions; the different ways that climate models use this information to project future hot and cold temperature extremes in various world regions; and the manner in which countries’ energy consumption patterns change under different scenarios of future increases in population and income, the researchers said.

They observed that the rising temperatures due to climate change would fuel energy demand significantly higher as compared to population and income growth.

“An important way in which society will adapt to rising temperatures from climate change is by increasing cooling during hot seasons and decreasing heating during cold seasons,” explained study’s co-author Enrica de Cian, Associate Professor at Ca’ Foscari University of VeniceA

“Changes in space conditioning directly impact energy systems, as firms and households demand less natural gas, petroleum, and electricity to meet lower heating needs, and more electricity to satisfy higher cooling needs,” she added.

The study’s findings represent the initial impacts of global warming. They do not account for the additional adjustments in fuel supplies and prices, the researchers asserted.A

“The lower the level of income per person, the larger the share of income that families need to spend to adapt to a given increase in energy demand,” noted lead author Bas van Ruijven, a researcher with IIASA Energy Programme.

“Some scenarios in our study assume continued population growth and in those cases temperature increases by 2050 could expose half a billion people in the lowest-income countries in the Middle-East and Africa to increases in energy demand of 25% or higher,” Ruijven said.
