BALISHAMAN's Antwort auf diese Email vom 20.2.2014
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Thanks for your email. Since 1997 my wife, Ketut Arianik, the
owner and initiator of Balishaman – Bali Shamanic Services, arranges
authentic shamanic healing treatments and other traditional and genuine
shamanic services (including white magical interventions in justified cases
only) for our many clients from all over the world. All shamanic treatments
and services are done by gifted Balinese shamans and traditional healers
practicing in Bali. Ketut comes from a Balinese family which brought forth
acknowledged and gifted shamans and healers throughout generations and I am
her advisor in all concerns running this mission. So let me give you some
insights in our philosophy:
Balishaman doesn’t arrange or provide any shamanic education.
We are highly skeptical about all those pseudo- and plastic-shamans that
grow rampant in the west, and - as we just have learned by reading your
email and visiting your websites - obviously also in Brazil. I do know, that
your Hindu orientated organization is established there and you are working
with shamanic master plants of the Andean traditional medicine, but this
doesn’t change our perspective. We doubt severely, that someone can ever
become a shaman by education or by attending some seminars. Especially this
we do consider a big illusion, because the essence of being a shaman or a
shamanic healer is the presence of Shamanic Power and the capability to
ignite a condition of temporary dissociation. Both of these capabilities are
a condition sine qua non for each and anyone who wishes to practice as a
shaman successfully. Both of them neither can be taught, nor learnt, because
those conditions belong to the intangible realms of existence. Yes, they can
be gained by some individuals, but that has nothing to do with education but
solely with grace.
It’s also our mission to protect the Balinese shamanism and
the interests of our shamans from exploitation and misusage of all kind.
Therefore we don’t understand why you could ever suppose that we are
possibly interested to promote “some shamanic experience developed by
ALDEIA DE SHIVA and Akaiê Sramana” in Bali, “like shamanic
conference, workshop, treatments, music presentation or some shamanic
ceremony with the Amazonian plants”.
Let me tell you this:
We have dedicated our life and work to cure people from all
around the world and any walk of life from even serious or chronic diseases
or offer them relief from psychic problems, stress, mental disorders and the
toils of life by arranging specific healing treatments for them, all done
by real and gifted shamans who are practicing in Bali.
We are living here in a Hindu culture (97% of Bali’s population
are Hindus). The shamanic teacher and master plant Ayahuasca is considered a
narcotic drug in Indonesia and its trafficking is punished by death and its
usage with long term prison. Thus, I cannot really see the
advantage for us and our work in respect to your proposal.
We are here to do the practical shamanic work, that means our
shamans heal, cure, help and support their Balinese brothers and sisters and
our many clients as well. We are not interested in playing Indians or
Shamans or in doing "education work" to produce even more plastic shamans in spe. We are doing the real job here
and non of our shamans has ever had any need of an initiation. Nor has any of them ever
been certified as a shaman! Why? Because there is no need at all for such nonsense
and stupidity in
If you really do wish, feel or think that you are a shaman,
simply sit down and work as a one by providing your Healing Power - should
you have any - to
your sick fellow humans or real solutions for their many problems retrieved by yourself from the Other Side!
It’s not the self-empowerment of our shamans which heals
their and our sick and suffering clients, but its explicitly the grace of
having gained Real Shamanic Power. If you have it, the Balinese will
acknowledge this and will consider you a shaman. They will contact you
for being cured, consult with you and ask for your acclaimed advice. If you
don’t have Real Shamanic Power, however, you will be breadless in Bali and
even a subject of mocking. In this case it would be better if you work as a
ditch digger to make a living in Bali than as a pseudo shaman, who only
pretends to be a real one. Thus, not one of the locals in Bali will ever
care about you and your so-called “shamanic services”, even if you wrap them
into a nice silver paper or telling the Balinese your fairytales about the
many powerful healing spirits you are in control of, eloquently.
We do have the Real Shamans here, who are helping their
fellow Balinese (and our clients) on a daily basis by simply fulfilling
their inherited spiritual duty as traditional healers, trance mediums or
magicians. And we do
have the real Hinduism here, which is even celebrated publicly on the Island
of the Gods. Yes, we are living on an island with an indigene shamanic
culture, where the real shamanism
is practiced and not this sham of pseudo-shamanism
that permeates currently the western world. The latter is only beneficial for its
proponents, who extort a lot of money from their gullible sheeple with their
Therefore my wife and I wonder in which way ALDEIA DE SHIVA
or Akaiê Sramana could support us to fulfill our mission in an even better

Hello my dear
Always be welcome!
We appreciate a lot
your answer, thank you so much!
Firstly, we are
trying establish contact with people that can open your mind to visionary
experiences, and go out of limitations and mental confinement… we never can
speak or comment about subjects that we cannot understand! If you do not
know nothing about the Ayahuaska Universe, you cannot speak about the
shamanic style practiced in the West side of the planet… what do you know
about Amazon and Ayahuaska Shamanism? due this, be impossible for you
understand the shamanic healing traditions, practiced here, in the amazon
forest… but, to your understanding, our work is pure, clean and elevated,
because promote freedom to the people and help people go out of several
mental limitations, including drugs addiction, depression, stress and other
contemporary mental diseases. Control the forest forces is another shamanic
department that balishamanism do not understand, because do not work with
ways to expand the consciousness of the shaman, like ayahuaska, jurema, san
pedro, peyote, and etc, to arrive in energetic dimensions where establish
contact with high level spirits, dimensions where high and pure energies
exists, and can be used by the shaman to align and cure the vibration of the
body, eliminating bad and negative energies tied in the energetic body, and
can be used to promote high concentrated level of vital energy to the
In your work you can
control some forces, spirits and be guided by him, but, in the ayahuaska
shamanism dimension, the Spiritual World is accessed by another ways… that
maybe, you never will touch without the help of the power plants, unless you
be a true and powerful medium.
Our deal is not make
plastic-shamans, but, develop healer that really, can connect with yourself,
your vital energies, and be guided by the nature and the Spiritual World,
where there are the true Spiritual Shamans.
If your country do
not permit work with ayahuaska, it is because, the govern control the life
and the spirituality of the population, do not permitting people explore
your heart to be better, firstly, to yourself, to be better to the nation…
to advance the study of the life and of the Spiritual World, without mental
and emotional control… it’s a prove that several limitations and illusions
was incorporated in the Bali culture in the past, that maintain the people
manipulated and controlled by the ignorance of the unknown, until today.
One day, if you have
Spiritual Permission, you will cross the way of a authentic amazon shaman,
to understand what you do not understand yet in the Shamanism Universe!
We are trying
integrate the “spiritual life” of the orient with the “science” of the
occident, using the shamanics tools and ancient techniques to help people
open your minds to new possibilities, to be more healthy and more happy,
nature archetypes and
growth opportunities around the life,

In the pure shamanism
we believe that everybody is brother, because, just one Mather have here,
the Mather-Earth so, everybody is one alone. Due this, do not have the best

If we cannot go
until you, we invite you come here, to know our work!

BALISHAMAN's Antwort auf diese Email vom 20.2.2014
How do you know, that I don’t have any idea about or
experience with the Andean shamanism? Who is to say? You? Really? Sorry, but
here you missed the perspective completely in spite of your many experiences with Ayahuasca.
I wrote more than 180 articles about shamanism, healing,
magic and awareness in the course of time. Click
and go through them even if you don’t understand German.
Look simply at the photos and you will immediately realize that you have been wrong.
Just last week a French doctor of school-medicine who lives
since 34 years in Peru, where he runs a rehabilitation center for drug
addicts based upon treatments with Andean medicine including Ayahuasca,
visited me in Bali, in order to consult with me and to get access to our
capable shamans, who should free him from the negative effects of a black
magical intervention caused by a Peruvian shaman. Did you get my point? They
are coming to us, because we can and really do help them - very successfully
though, to speak frankly with you exercising all my modesty.
We are sitting on the other side of the world, but, of
course, we do know what’s going on with the shamanism in South America
and with the Andean shamanism especially. We do know, there is a vested
interest of many Andean "shamans" (and for the many pseudo-shamans and
wannabes over there as well) to make with their seminars and Ayahuasca, Peyote or Teonanacatl retreats a lot of money from people who believe in them.
However, those entheogen plants are here for everyone who is mature enough dealing with the
plant spirits. There is no need at all to spend a lot of money for having
this experience. Everyone who wish to gain it, can have it free of charge,
because the vine is growing everywhere in the upper Amazon and so do
I don’t have any objection against the form of shamanism that
is established in South America. On the contrary, I do appreciate and
respect also this indigene shamanic cultures, even because they are
different to the one in Bali. But I do have a lot of serious objections against
all those numberless and mindless suckers, usurers and exploiters out there who only try to get the money out of
their sheeple’s wallets by only emulating real shamans and their ancient and
sacred rituals. Such guys I do not consider as SHAMANS, but as SHAM-MEN.
I study shamanism since more than 35 years, and for 19 years
the one established in Bali. But I still do not consider myself being a
shaman - never had and never will. My interest in this subject doesn’t make me a shaman,
But as a well informed individual I get suspicious if someone
considers it necessary to combine the local shamanism with the Hindu
religion from the other side of the world or claims – like other pseudos do
– he or she is teaching “International Shamanims”. For sure, there are in
the meantime other self-empowerers out there who consider themselves already
as specialists in Intergalactic Shamanism. What an "initiation" in
dissociative identity disorder!
how about your queer pseudonym "Sramana"? I guess you know its real
meaning, do you?
years ago, I
wrote in one of
my articles, that Buddhist monks brought the
word "shamanism" to Siberia. These monks were called "samana"
at this time, a term retrieved from the language Pali. The word "samana"
itself has its etymological roots in the Sanskrit term "sramana" -
your pseudonym - which means "asket" or "someone who is committed
to do spiritual exercises".
The noun "sramana" has the verb "sram"
at its root, which means "to exercise in a disciplined and committed way",
or "heating up oneself".
The word "ashram" is related to the word "sram",
as it is a location where devotees are doing serious spiritual
Should you know the real
meaning of your pseudonym "Sramana", you obviously wish to express
both meanings to your surroundings: 1. being an asket, who is committed to do
serious spiritual exercises, and 2. being a shaman as well.
It is your business
alone to use such a pseudonym, or each and any pseudonym at all. But what
should the world think about an asket or a shaman, who
considers it necessary, to adopt and
emphasize the very properties and
meaning of the term asket or shaman by using them as a
pseudonym? Is it not enough that you pretend being a shaman? Is it really
necessary, that you express your self-proclaimed status, which is hidden for the ignorant,
once more by using this very pseudonym?
Your peers around the world may call themselves
"First Pipe Carrier", "Gay Eagle", "White Buffalo
Woman" or "First Sweat Lodge Attendant" - but YOU are much
smarter than all of them by using the very pseudonym "Sramana"
and its hidden meaning to amplify to the initiated ones who or what YOU
REALLY are..., isn't it, Sramana? And even the ignorant ones are forced to
accept your unquestionable status as a shaman, simply by calling you by your
pseudonym. Isn't that an indication or a symptom of a clinical sickness,
Sorry, we don’t play such ridiculous games because our mission
is very different. We are not here to impress you or others with our titles
or by that what we do, but we are here to arrange highly effective shamanic
healing treatments for sick and despaired people, for patients with chronic
diseases, whom the school-medicine cannot help with its limited means and
My wife and I do have the privilege to live on our own
devices. Therefore BALISHAMAN spends a good part of the moneys it makes by providing
our services for sick, old, handicapped and other people in need in Bali.
Currently BALISHAMAN cares for 26 people in need on a monthly basis
we have built up a pig farm for a poor family in East Bali, the poorest
region on the island, in order to improve the living standards for some
individuals living in this poverty ridden area.
Well, look at your website and to what YOU have to offer to the people
and then compare it with our mission. Can you see the difference – the
significant difference? I wish you could!
you are doing in Brazil, thousands of others are doing in Peru, Ecuador, Costa Rica,
Mexico and elsewhere on this planet. And they all do it for one single
purpose - to make a
nice living for themselves or for their gurus, if we look into the Indian or
Nepalese realm of this worldwide scam. The Hare Krishna sect in your link directory
reveals more about yourself and the value of your offers, as you might
Anyway, this is not the way we deal with the phenomenon "Shamanism". Our approach and understanding is totally different
than yours - and so is
our mission. We like to keep the Balinese shamanism clean from all these ridiculous
and stupid distortions which showed up with all those material interests
behind the efforts of plastic shamans, fakes, wannabes, priests
and gurus who are haunting the world with their strange and utopic phantasmagories
We are not here to criticize you or others, as long as you or
they don't misuse the Balinese shamanism. Beyond that, do what ever you want!
But there are already others who have criticized all those fakes
out there! Please read the
“Declaration of War Against Exploiters of Lakota Spirituality"
and determine yourself whether you belong to their potential enemies or
not. My wife, our shamans, our team and, of course, myself do support each
word of this declaration.
As you already can see, it's really better you do your
business in Brazil without any affiliation to BALISHAMAN and we are going forward with our mission in Bali
without any affiliation to your organization.
Anyway, have a nice day, my dear Sramana!
Kind regards from the Isle of the REAL ONES
