My Experiences With Neo-Babaylan Shamans

By sufiyatik 2017-03-23 16:10:47
I would like to summarize my experiences with the modern-day healer babaylans in the Philippines since my childhood up to the present time:

1) A healer in Taal, Batangas Province who could describe the parts of internal bodies exactly as what the modern medical doctors knew, except of course with the medical lingo.

2) Another healer in Taal, Batangas Province who passed a small piece of paper, smeared with coconut oil, over the body of patient. it stopped where the fracture or misaligned ligaments or joints. The shaman also raised this paper upward towards the sun to assess the internal medical problem of patient in the same way a medical doctor read an x-ray.

3) A healer in Gumaca, Quezon Province whom I avoided. He was so good that he could abort the baby of any patient mother by his magick spells in 3 to 6 sessions.

4) Most healers in other parts of the Philippines used "oraciones" (magick chants), native herbal medicine, "hilot" (massaging the body), and "tawas" (letting a lighted candle drop its liquid over water in a basin; then, the shaman could assess the source of illness if coming from a black witch or any kinds of evil spirits).

5) Recent experience with husband and wife healers in Lucena City, Quezon Province. I could sense the presence of spirits around their house. The spirits tried to confuse my mind in going back to my car in the main road. I could not remember whether to go straight, left or right.Fortunately, my two amulets protected me and I gained my senses.
