Out-of-Body States and Shamanic Journeying

Harner describes a common shamanic practice of using “charms,” or small stones, crystals, etc., which have had a special meaning or memory associated with them. These memories are typically of an interaction with a spiritual entity, a helper or guardian spirit. After the establishment of a relationship with the helper spirit, the shaman scratches around for a meaningful stone with which to use to recall that moment of connection with that entity – the unique emotional signature of that relationship, reactivated -- as a means of calling that particular helper into the room, in order to assist him. Like with Buhlman and Monroe, the emotional signature of the location or entity acts like a “calling card,” in order to meet, communicate, and travel in the subtle realms of spirit.
