Day 19: The Old Horse Doctor

Traditional Shamanism is a way of life, a way of living, a calling, an occupation much like a doctor. Remember the old horse doctor who had nothing more than his little black bag who went from house to house on the back of his horse bringing healing to the community? He was on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week. He was called upon to heal all kinds of things from chicken pox, to difficult childbirth to cancer to broken bones and everything he had to heal with was in that little black bag. This is the life of the Traditional Shaman. The Traditional Shaman is available to everyone everywhere she goes, she is always healing, always counseling, living her life as an example to others to show the way to live in peace and health. She carries her medicine bag with a few leaves and stones and feathers and in that bag she has everything she needs to heal broken hearts, help cancer victims, heal chicken pox, whatever kind of healing she is called upon to bring. The healing is not in the black bag anyway, is it! Those are just the tools. The healing is in the heart and mind of the doctor.
