Shamanism & Magic – The Environmental Questions

From the dawn of the Homo sapien up until the modern day, shamanism and magical rite have been part of human society. With an ever growing population and many people moving away from conventional religion, shamanism and magical thought have only grown. In most of the third world, shamanic practice and magical ritual remain commonplace. Much of the ingredients and tools used in these practices are harvested from the wild. Specific plants and very often animal parts are used in these practices, raising many environmental issues that require discussion.

{SpiritMonkey} The Effect of Traditional Medicine and Magic on the Environment

Shamanism, traditional medicine and magical practice often utilities plant and animal products. Some of the products used come from plants and animals that range from being threatened to critically endangered.

This video briefly discusses some of the well-known products fueling poaching and illegal animal trade. It is vital to understand where a product is from and if it actually contains medicinal and magical value before it is used. At the current rate of consumption, many of these animals and plants will go extinct due to unjustified belief in their apparent medicinal value and reckless use in magical practice.

The Living Kingdoms of the Elemental Beings

In both spiritual and scientific circles, there is a division between the kingdoms of mineral, plant, animal and human worlds. These kingdoms have clear distinctions in their purpose and range of influence. Each kingdom is intimately connected to the other as energy is moved from the lower kingdoms to the higher, and recycled back into the lower. Each kingdom provides their own unique value and capability, never stagnates and is instead ever changing and evolving. In many cases the Human kingdom is integrated into the animal kingdom, however, some do draw a distinction between the two. The relationship between the kingdoms allows for life to exist as we know it today. The minerals aid in the growth of the plant kingdom, which in turn supports the animal kingdom and onward. When one of these kingdoms is out of balance or corrupted, then the entire chain suffers the consequence. Both a balance and struggle is present inside each kingdom and between the higher and lower kingdoms. This dance between the kingdoms creates life and death, leading to an ever-changing reality. It is constantly evolving.

The Tree of Life – Ecology and Mythology of Fig Trees.

A tree rooted deep within the theology of humanity is the fig tree. In Asia, the sacred Fig (Ficus religiosa) represents the Bodhi tree under which Siddhartha Gautama attained enlightenment and became known as Gautama Buddha. The largest ethnic group in Kenya known as the Kikuyu derive their name from the word Gĩkũyũ, meaning ‘massive fig’. The sycamore fig (Ficus sycamorus) in this case. This same sycamore fig is represented in early Egyptian myth and symbology as ‘The Tree of Life’. In the ecological system, most fig trees are known as keystone species, meaning that their effect on the environment is disproportionately larger than many other plant species. They feed an abundance of animal life in the wilderness and some animal species are mostly reliant on them. Mammals, birds and insects all benefit from the presence of this tree. Each species of a fig tree is in a mutualistic relationship with either one or a few fig wasp species. Within the roughly 850 species variety of fig trees, their strategy for survival is diverse. This article discusses the ecological effect, spiritual impact and life of the Ficus genus.

Creating a Personal Ritual – Part 3

A personal ritual is a ritual designed by the user itself, where their innate creativity and sincerity is expressed through ways unique to them. Part one discussed what a personal ritual entails and what factors are commonly used in ritual practice. It also explained the linguistic and visual aids that can be used in designing a personal ritual. In part two the value of physical objects, movement, energy manipulation and correct states of mind was discussed. This article will focus on physical objects in particular. These objects, unlike those discussed in part two, do not alter the user’s state of mind but instead carries within them innate energies and psychological reinforcement for the user. These objects come in great variety and can be found in all shapes and sizes. Many of the objects can be seen in conventional religion, occult, esoteric and pagan ritualism.
