All of us, every human being, possesses both a Logic Mind and a Spirit Mind. The Logic Mind is what we use to navigate our day to day life in ordinary waking reality. When we think, do math, drive a car, read a book, dial a phone number. etc; we are acting within the province of the Logic Mind. The Spirit Mind, is the realm of intuitive understanding, a place where our experiences can be described but not explained by logic. How, for example, can we logically explain the way we are able to move over space and time in a dream?
Shamanic awareness and shamanic healing is dependent upon the Shaman being able to consistently and effectively access the spirit mind and then return to normal waking consciousness.
