The Shamanic Journey is an ancient technology used to access information from a spiritual level. One is able to access this information from three levels using drumming or rattles in order to alter the state of consciousness.
The first level is the lower world where one travels down a tunnel, or through water to find ones power animal and ask questions of it. The second level is the middle world (our world), but that which is unseen. Here we find lost objects or have our guides answer questions. This is where we find elementals, stone spirits, tree spirits, etc. The next level is the upper world. By climbing a tree or flying upwards, one reaches the area where our guides are located. These are Angels, Ancestors or other types of higher guidance. By altering our consciousness by the drum, rattle or other instruments, we are able to access these worlds.
