Shamans believe that the world seems real only because we perceive it as such and that everything we perceive is a
reflection of an internal, individual “map” or blueprint that each of us has constructed about the nature of reality.
These maps are stored in what shamans define as the Light Body or Luminous Energy Field (LEF), and what scientists call neural networks in our brain. Many investigators believe that the Light Body is simply an aura produced by electric activity in the brain and nervous system. It’s why auras can actually be photographed and sometimes seen by the naked eye. Shamans, however, believe that the Light Body is what creates and continues to mold the body, the brain, and the nervous system.
Shamans know that if they wish to change the outer world, they must begin by changing the inner maps, by healing the imprints of disease and trauma from the Light Body. They believe that the Light Body is the blueprint that creates health or disease and that greater understanding of this Light Body process can induce self healing.

Shamans understand the difference between healing and
During his studies with the shamans, Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., discovered that there is a difference between “curing” and energy “healing” and how this relates to the Light Body.
Curing is the business of medicine. Healing is the business of the shaman.
Curing consists of treating disease and eliminating symptoms. We all know people who have
received cures but have not experienced healing. When this happens, the symptoms generally return.
Healing addresses the cause of the disease (which is generally a trauma), and the resulting
toxic emotions that separate the person from his or her joy and health. To shamans, the cause
of the disease is due to the imprints of trauma stored in the Light Body. It is a person’s
Luminous Energetic Field that registers “scratch marks” of trauma that are repeatedly
triggered. Self healing happens when we clear these marks from the luminous matrix that
envelops and informs our lives.
