Those Who Live of the Source

How do you see pagan, shaman, witchcraft and sorcery, is it good, bad or evil?

In this civilized world where people belong to a certain society and religious group, paganism is connected to sorcery, witchcraft, shaman, Satanism and evil.

Way back before Ferdinand Magellan discovers the Island Philippines, paganism is the belief of native dweller. I did remember the story of my parents that our grandparents and great grandparents are pagan. In which relates to my grandmother as a healer and a sorcerer and inherited by my father.  Paganism and sorcery do believe in the spirit of nature like the way Native Americans live their own faith. They are highly spiritual people and very connected to the Earth. It was the Christian fundamentalist and society’s point of view that judge paganism, shaman, sorcery and Satanism as bad. In fact, indigenous people around the world are blaming Christianity for ruining their culture and poisoning their mind to bury their own spiritual path they live with since time immemorial.

From the book “The Power of Silence” written by Carlos Castaneda (played as Don Juan in the story who explores the first world of Yaqui Indian sorcery), in his words, “Intent is a force that exists in the universe. When sorcerers (those who live of the Source), beckon intent, it comes to them and sets up the path for attainment, which sorcerers always accomplish what they set out to do.” These sorcerers only mean that they are consolidating their energy, developing awareness and improving the ability to handle intent. This intent or called intention is the invisible force that is connected by a link.

Coming from my parents who are mysterious and has fascinating background in healing people, seeing Spirit, communicating with the other world and even has a power to command thunder and lightning, only means they have the ability to handle intention and highly connected to the spiritual world.

It is wonderful to know that there are a lot of people out there who view themselves as a citizen of the Earth and do not belong to any religion. They follow their own spirit which is connected to the nature. They follow their own path of searching for the truth without being dictated by a certain group. Call them Shaman, Pagan or Sorcerer, judge them bad or evil, it is the freedom of their own faith and how they live and connect with the Source is I think highly spiritual and it only depends on how they use their power of intention for good or for bad.


“In the universe there is an immeasurable, indescribable force which shamans call intent, and absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link.” –Carlos Castaneda
