Hello, My name is Marco Cabrera. I am a healer, and a warrior, and
recently taking every step I can take towards becoming a shaman of the Peruvian lineage have just completed my Pampamasayoq (Tender of the Earth Spirits) and am now considered a Paq’o (or a shaman of the Q’ero people (Pre-Christian Peruvian lineage)).
Religion and Spirituality are not the same thing. As far as religion, I am a Unitarian Universalist. As far as spirituality, I am somewhere on the pagan spectrum. I consider myself a Pantheist . I see a God (the Royal, Gender non-specific God), or an aspect of God in everything. And one of the gifts given to me, perhaps leading to my path of Shamanism, is that I can speak with the Gods, Goddesses, spirits, energies, and the dead. Please note here that Shamanism is NOT a religion, it is a job.
I, myself, truly value science. So when I started to really dive into my spirituality (I fought it for a very long time) I decided that I would figure out a way for it not to sound crazy. So I also dove deep into science. And when the more I learned about both Quantum and Astrophysics, the more confirmation I find in my spirituality.
Another note, I don’t take myself too seriously. I try to be humble, I know I make mistakes, and I definitely offend people. But, I feel that the more I learn and the more I do in learning about Shamanism, the more I help the people around me.
Good luck in your own searches.
I would also like to take a moment and thank those who have helped keep me sane though this.
Special Thanks to:
My Wife, Claire.
