One Man's Journey Into the Heart of Humanity, Spirituality & Ecology

This fascinating true story chronicles one man's journey into the mysteries of spiritual consciousness and the indigenous healing practices of four shamanistic traditions: Toltec, Cherokee, Maya, and Buddhist.

In his travels around the globe, Rosales witnesses the powerful channeled spirit Niño Fidencio, receives messages and healing from a Toltec shaman, and experiences a dramatic soul retrieval from a Cherokee spiritwalker. Rosales travels to Guatemala, where he meets a Mayan high priestess, or a'j' r'ij, and the secret brotherhoods called cofradias, whose mission is to guard Maximón, the last living Mayan god. Rosales's last journey is to Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, where he spends time with a holy lama.

Praise:"Beautifully written, intriguing and mysterious, a work both of adventure and of serious research."―Graham Hancock, international bestselling author of Fingerprints of the Gods

"Omar's adventures in Elemental Shaman are inspiring and lively, with a lot of useful insight and inspiration."― Robert A. F. Thurman, professor of Buddhist studies at Columbia University and author of Why the Dalai Lama Matters

"Superb. A real thriller!"―Carmen Harra, Ph.D., author of Everyday Karma

  • A well written account on shamanism and spirituality. It didn't uphold my interest throughout, but I found the more I was open minded, the more I gained. It's not always easy to get on board with such supernatural beliefs but I don't want to shut the door on some of the miraculous healing scenarios either. It's worth seeing what resonates, and leave the rest.

  • I received an offer from the author for a review copy of this book. Normally, I don't read a lot of non-fiction but I have always been interested in non-Western religions and spirituality. I look for books that open my mind and help me discover my own spirituality. I have read books about paganism and Buddhism but nothing specifically about Shamans, who are spiritual healers. I found this book not only to be informative but to be an inspirational story of the author's own personal journey. He travels to the southwest, Guatemala and Bhutan to meet , study and experience the work of various shamans. He first looks into shamanism to help his mother, who has become ill as the result of interactions with a co-worker. The Shaman was able to redirect the dark energy away from his mother and back to the co-worker, the original source. After law school, Rosales finds himself at loose ends and begins his quest.
    I liked that Rosales provided the historical context of each place that he visited as well as his own revelations. I found some of the concepts to be quite interesting.
    Native Americans shamans believe in soul retrieval, the idea that our souls and identities are comprised of of a dozen or more pieces. These pieces represent different stages i our development and our lives...In other words, our identities are comprised of the sum of our past, present, and future experiences, both good and bad.
    For the shaman, the ceremony to retrieve a soul piece is an effort to bring back something that was lost, to reintegrate that part of a person's soul and make the person whole again.
    This appealed to me as sometimes I feel lost and that something is missing.
    Part of the problem with my own quest for spirituality is that I want to believe but the practical part of my brain won't always let me. That was how I felt about some of the stories in this book. That doesn't mean they didn't happen, but that I was not able to suspend belief enough to fully absorb some of the more supernatural aspects of the various ceremonies. But on days when my mind is more open and I am feeling lost, I will re-read parts of this book, searching for answers.
    my rating 4 stars because the book was well written and informative and I can't rate what I might and might not believe of another's spiritual experience.

    Review
    Omar Rosales, author of Elemental Shaman, is an attorney by schooling (undergraduate in anthropology from Vanderbuilt University and graduate of the University of Texas, School of Law---inside book cover) and former Marine Corp. Captain. Travel destinations in this book are wonderfully educational, absolutely awe-inspiring, and truly transit the globe. [...]

    This book is divided into the four elements and four specific locations in search of them: fire, earth, water, and air. Mr. Rosales begins his journey with a Toltec Shaman, near the border of the USA and Mexico. This trip was precipitated in order that he might help his ailing mother with what appears to be some bad magic that is making her physically ill. The Toltec healer and Shaman Mr. Rosales met there used a combination of laying on hands, music, and trances. Many people had gathered for this healing help as you might expect. These methods help channel good (never bad) energy/spirits toward the ailing person to remove their ailment and provide instruction on what to do afterward. This Shaman did help Mr. Rosales mother and also told Mr. Rosales (2009, p.8-9) that he [Mr. Rosales] was on a journey that at times may not be evident nor easy, but he would be able to accomplish it if he looked inside himself.

    The second healer was a Cherokee Spiritwalker -Shaman in Sedona, Arizona. His element was the earth and specialization was soul retrieval. Sedona is known to have four vortexes (Bell Rock, Cathedral Rock, Airport Mesa, and Boynton Canyon) that help to conduct energy and increase paranormal sensory perception. Vortexes can be negative, positive, or neutral according to Rosales. (2009, p.52) The effects of these vortexes vary between grounded, uplifting, and calm. Native Americans, like this Spiritwalking Shaman Rosales visits in Sedona, believe that souls are comprised of many pieces and sometimes those pieces are lost or fragmented because of life's experiences. (2009, p.27) Mr. Rosales was found to have five pieces missing from his soul and this Spiritwalker-Shaman helped him to collect them and taught him to welcome those fragmented pieces back home. Here Mr. Rosales also experiences some revealing dreams that lead him on more journies.

    Leg three of this journey is near water. Mr. Rosales goes to Central America [Guatemala] to find the "Madre Luna" or Mother Moon from his dreams. Here he learns the various Maya calendar, astronomy, baktuns, and how they fit into contemporary life. Mr. Rosales plans his adventures well and always seeks the guidance of a local guide. On this trip he understands how Shamans communicate via dreams and feels he has been touched by such ministrations. (2009, p.89) Mr. Rosales visits many Maya churchs, pagan markets, and finds his Mother Moon at Lake Atitlan. He makes many visits to her and she thoughtfully answers many lingering questions for him. She is also a healer and has been blessed with this gift since childhood. Mother Moon uses candles to aid her in her healing quest. These candles represent all directions [north, south, east, west] as well as depicting what each direction represents for the people she heals. (2009, p.181) She provides Mr. Rosales with much sage advice and points him in his last direction for seeking the information he wishes to understand and communicate to the rest of us.

    The last portion of this journey is advice from the Buddhist Master in Bhutan and is air. Mr. Rosales has had some dreams that he made sketches from in hopes of finding the right path to learn the answers to his questions. Buddhism hinges on respect for all things large and small, the journey you make in life that should be limited to "escape from suffering" and achievement of happiness, and how Karma resonates. (2009, p.190) There are also three realms that people/spirits pass through via reincarnation. There are many symbols that are part of Buddhist rituals. Mr. Rosales visits many monasteries while in Bhutan and even gets to question the top religious leader in this land, the Manchen Lopon. Here he [Mr. Rosales] learns the four lessons in life: "life is about suffering, suffering comes from attachment, suffering can be ended, and transcendence comes from the middle or moderation." (2009, p.242) This wise man also said that "only through wisdom will humans survive." (p.245) Furthermore, "the key to peace is having inner peace, and the key to peace is love." (p.249)

    I recommend this book to everyone who has wondered about our life here on earth and the hereafter. Thank you Omar Rosales for a great read!

  • Elemental Shaman is a search for spirituality and the supernatural . He begins telling about his mother , who becomes sick after finding that her car was surrounded by powder mingled with drops of blood. He starts out on a quest to find the meaning and the a cure .
    He meets with his first Toltec Shaman and experiences the spirit of Nino Fidencio.
    I also found it very interesting when he tells the story of Maximon the patron saint of Lake Atitlan. He meets other Shamans and spirit guides, Buddhists and Buddhism. Traveling across the globe in his search for life questions.

    Chapter 3, the last paragraph says: "The answers, or puzzle pieces it seemed, started to come together. I was never looking for a path. The whole time i was on a path. And not only did I need to find the healers of our age, I was also looking for a woman-a young woman with dark hair, soft eyes, a kind heart, and a beautiful soul. A woman who would be my destiny."

    This is a difficult review because i don't really understand it all but i did learn something new about Shamans and spirtuality and it was very interesting. If your interested in Shamans and spiritual healings, this would be the perfect book. It is written very well with beautiful descriptions of the countries and people he visits.
