Shamanic “definitions” are many, and a few misunderstandings occur.
I had a client who came for an extraction (removing unwished and uncomfortable “energy” probably sent from someone else), and I accepted because my Guides had told me to.
I explained to him that I choose to work “the Peaceful way”, with Love and Forgiveness, and avoid “war against whoever”, whatever work needs to be done.
It sounded strange to his ears, and he immediately asked if I knew someone else who worked “the other way”.
Finally, he gave me a “chance”, and we went through.
Power does not mean war, means Power.
“Real” Power does not go “against”.
War is a misunderstanding created by Fear.
Love is the greatest Power.
Where there is Love, “God” helps,
(whatever “God” is)…
