6.9 – THE SHAMANS (2.28.14)


The Kalahari Desert, South Africa. Here, the native San Bushmen hold elaborate fireside rituals, lasting for hours into the night. During these ceremonies, their shamans perform what’s known as a trance dance, through which they reach an altered state of being and access other dimensions.

“The trance dance is thought to activate an energy in their body called “n/um.” And this energy opens a portal of sorts that enables them to travel into the spirit world. And when the Bushmen activate this energy, they’re able to put their hands in the fire without being burned. They can see vast distances and it’s as if in every way, shape and form, they’re transformed into super powerful beings.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

By accessing the power of n/um energy, it is believed that a shaman can extract illness, see the insides of the sick and travel out of their own body to the land of the gods.

“This n/um, it goes up the body and then often it goes out of the crown of the head and that’s usually when the out-of-body experience occurs and they travel to the spirit world. I’ve seen a Bushman put a coal in his mouth and he wasn’t burned. They’ll put their heads in the fire, and although their hair might singe and even catch fire, their face won’t be burned, so something is happening with this n/um energy. They call it boiling energy. It’s almost like there’s a vibrational change in their whole body and probably in their DNA in some way.”

– David Cumes, MD (Author, The Spirit of Healing)

Could this so-called n/um energy really be inherent in shamans accessed only while in a sort of dream state? And is it possible that the genetic makeup of these medicine men is what allows them to access other dimensions?

“The San Bush-people have a tradition that they are the first tribe ever created. They’re the oldest people in the world. DNA tests have shown that they probably are. That all other cultures and all other peoples that spread throughout the world came, originally, from where the San people are now.”

– Graham Phillips (Author/Investigative Journalist),
(Author, Merlin & the Discovery of 
Avalon in the New World),
(Alexander the Great: Murder at Babylon),
(The Templars & the Ark of the Covenant),
(Atlantis & the Ten Plagues of Egypt)

“When we look at the San Bushmen and we see the clear genetic evidence that they are the primordial seed of human civilization and life on Earth it is possible that their DNA is especially well equipped to have this potential to access these non-ordinary states of consciousness which may, in fact, be a key to physically journeying into them giving these people the ability to do things that most of us seemingly cannot.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

Is it possible that the San Bushmen have special knowledge of how to alter their genetic makeup in order to access other realms? A knowledge that is shared by shamans around the world?  And might this knowledge or power have been given to them by alien beings? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe an undeniable connection between shamans and extraterrestrials can be found in cave paintings that date back thousands of years.

The Lascaux Caves, Southwestern France. Discovered in 1940 near the village of Montignac, this cave complex is covered in Paleolithic paintings dating back more than 17,000 years. Anthropologists believe ancient shamans used these subterranean chambers to perform sacred rituals, and curiously, among the many Ice Age animals that are depicted on the walls, there is a strange creature that has the body of a man and the head of a bird.

“The technical term for such a creature is a therianthrope, and that’s from the Greek “therian,” which means wild beast and “anthropos,” which means man. Clearly these are not things that one encounters in everyday life. The imagery of cave art is best explained as the experiences that shamans undergo in a deep state of trance. When they return from the trance state they then depict, on the cave walls, the visions that they have seen in this deeply altered state of consciousness.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

The birdman found in Lascaux is reminiscent of one of the Egyptians’ most Thoth. It is also consistent with the depiction of the Sumerian sky gods, the Anunnaki. But is it mere coincidence that these shamans are encountering the same types of beings while in a trance that the world’s earliest civilizations depicted as their gods?

“In all of these different indigenous cultures around the world there are remarkable similarities of what types of beings people claim to be meeting when they go out of body. This suggests that in the dream plane and in the shamanic state, there is in fact a real place that we are going, and real beings that we are encountering when we get there.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“This is where the Ancient Astronaut Theory suggests that they were the same teachers the teachers that went to all the ancient cultures and brought them the basics for what we’ve accomplished today.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“There was a big, noticeable change in human behavior around 40,000 years ago, exactly at the time that our ancestors begin to manifest the first amazing cave art. And what is clear is that it’s not a coincidence, that at the moment that the cave art begins, we also witness in the archaeological record a radical change in human behavior.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

Could the Lascaux cave paintings be proof that Shamans really do communicate with extraterrestrial beings, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest? And if shamans like those of the San Bushmen undergo a physiological change in order to make this connection, what might that change be? Perhaps the answer can be found inside the human brain.
