I had the distinct privilege to meet an authentic modern day shaman from Mongolia through Jade Wah’ OO Grigori while filming his Spring Equinox Earth Renewal Ceremony. When I first briefly met Altana I felt he had very clear and transparent energy this made me feel he was someone I would be interested in interviewing. It was a beautiful spring day and I was also filming on the same day Chirgilchin Tuvan Throat Singers.
Their music is folk music that has shamanic influences from Mongolian Asia, so what an amazing opportunity to film and interview right here in Sedona all the way from the steppes of Asia. First I would like to share the definition of the word Shaman to be clear what I am referring to when using the word shaman.
Shamanism is an text-decoration:none;text-underline:none"">anthropological term referencing a range of beliefs and practices regarding communication with the text-decoration:none;text-underline:none"">spiritual world. A
practitioner of shamanism is known as a shaman (pronounced /ˈʃɑtext-underline:none"">ːtext-underline:none"">mən/ "SHAH-men"or /ˈʃeɪmən/
Shamanism encompasses the belief that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. Shamans are said to treat
ailments/illness by mending the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the
soul/spirit restores the physical body of the individual to balance and
wholeness. The shaman also enters supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain
solutions to problems afflicting the community. Shamans may visit other
worlds/dimensions to bring guidance to misguided souls and to ameliorate
illnesses of the human soul caused by foreign elements. The shaman operates
primarily within the spiritual world, which in turn affects the human world.
The restoration of balance results in the elimination of the ailment.
Here is Altana in is shamanic ceremonial dress and the interview.
My name is Altansu and I am a Mongolian Shaman but people in English call me Altana. I was invited to the US to work with Autistic children. In 2004 I connected with Jade Wah’ OO, since I was in the US I wanted to come visit Jade. That is how I came to be here in Sedona.
Q. How were you chosen to be a shaman?
A. First of all I did not choose to be a shaman, my Ancestral Spirits choose me to be a shaman. I did not know anything about being a shaman because I grew up in the city. The first 2-3 years of being called to be a shaman, I did not believe I was destined to be a shaman I didn’t nelieve in shamanism. There were consequences for not believing so I went to a shaman for protection, I paid the money and I thought the consequences were over, but I still left not believing I was destined to be a shaman.
Then the Ancestral Spirits became angry with me and some of my relatives began to die. Every seven days a family member died until 3 of them had died. My family began to panic and asked me to go back to the shaman for help. He described to me the age and the person of who would be next if I did not listen to my Ancestral Spirits. Then I started having dreams about another dimension and this reality we are in became nonsense to me and I started loosing my mind. My dreams were like going through one person’s whole life in one night. Since I began this dreaming of living in another dimension this reality became very difficult for me to live in and
seemed a very poor quality of existence. Before this time I worked in a bank
and graduated from a prestigious high school just for math people where I was
working with bank analytics through math. I was living in a city convinced that
I would always work with math and science. I worked in a very large building
the largest in Mongolia. During lunch time I would go to the roof there I would
get the feeling it would be real easy to jump but the truth is that Ancestral
Spirits were tempting me to make suicide. I then realized that if I wanted to
live in this life and have a good life my only chance would to become a shaman. To become a shaman I first went to the North of Mongolia a highly spiritual place to soften the Ancestral Spirits that were angry with me. This is how I started to become a shaman. Since that time my life has become much better as my interest has elevated toward the hidden and secret world. I studied for the last six years
independently researching metaphysical and ethereal knowledge. I am very
interested in shamanism now and the worldwide rituals associated with them.
Most of the information I find is in the Russian language. Because we are a former communist country under Russia I grew up with the systematic scientific
Q. With the fading of Ancient culture into Modern Life what role does Shamanism play?
A. The spiritual world projects onto our physical world. My answer is a mathematical metaphor,
Let’s say X is a variable, the Spirit, and it has a function when it manifests into the physical world. Most people just see the function but they do not see the variable. This is why the spirit world is not valued; the only value is function in the physical
world. Our physical world is developing really rapidly, let’s assume the
spiritual world is the cup and the physical world is the water in it. The water
is overflowing out of the container of the cup. Because the cup is full we need
to get a bigger glass in the Spirit World so that we can bring the next generation
of life. We need to start a new era too change the problems we are facing
globally, we must change our lives and a new era must begin soon.
The conflicts we are facing show’s us we must reconnect to the Spirit World, Now! this is why we have so many conflicts. We already have the inner mechanism that drives us to the Spirit World but we don’t know where to go because we are unconscious. Because of the conflicts, the only spirits willing to help us are our Ancestral Spirits and Angels. Shamanism is the way to shorten that time to reach the Spirit World. This is the best way to go into the new era and effectively leave the old era. The People of Atlantis had the ability to transform into new era’s,
they transformed through many era’s, everyone now must use this ability in our
time to transform into the new era. If we activate the shamanic knowledge we
will be able to move into a new era of life, the next generation of life.
In Mongolian philosophy everyone has their own protective Spirit’s, so if you pray to your protective spirit’s you will have a much better quality of life. You first have listen to what your heart is telling you, that is your door into the Spirit World. Once
you go through that door and discover for yourself the Spirit World you will be
able to communicate with your Spirit’s to get help from your Spirit Guides.
Your spiritual life will be much higher. This is the era of changing to the
next generation and you have to listen to your heart to find out what path is
suited for you. You have to find the shamanic ritual that will help you be
connected to your Spirits, as well as Mother Earth because the shamanic way
will connect you to the spirit of nature. Shamanic society is growing and we
have a strong knowledge now, but religion is still struggling to hold people
back to another time. In order to change this, there is really only the easiest
way by connecting through shamanism back to our Spirit Guides and back to
Mother Earth. When we reconnect it will be like holding a map, then we can see
where we are now and where we are going.
Q. What is your thought on the existence of Aliens and ET’s.
A. A lot of people assume that they are seeing Aliens or ET’s. Sometimes we mislead ourselves to wrong feelings because we don’t follow our heart. So some people do not interpret what they see correctly which is usually a lack of inner development. When they believe they see Aliens or ET’s they are really seeing a lack of development in their spiritual life. Aliens or ET’s can not been seen by us because we are not developed in the spirit world. Often times what are attributed to sightings of Aliens or ET’s we are seeing what we refuse to see within ourselves. Because we do not want to see it in ourselves we call it Alien or ET. But it is probably an aboration of something you project unconsciously that is underdeveloped in the spiritual life. If you develop well you can travel to other dimensions easily and see other worlds.
We must pray to the protector spirit to guide our lives; we must also meditate to explore ourselves, to determine who we are and why we are here. The first and main purpose for everyone is to explore yourself. Spirits will give you answers while you are meditating. Because people do not develop themselves well spiritually they are open to misguidance. So the most important thing is to develop your connection to the spirit world to avoid being distracted by what appears to be Alien or ET’s. Look within and explore yourself, there you will find all your answers
inside when you listen to your heart, the Queen organ. Otherwise you will be
limited by the Slave organ, your brain.
Thank you very much for this interview I am feeling gratitude for you creating this interview.
