    The initiation of a natural shaman, by heritage and being chosen by the spirits, includes psyche death, dismemberment, and passing through hell to ensure purity of soul and person. A natural otherworldly selection not the joke many new age fanatics have made. An honest to God shaman is a healer, protector, and usually have suffered and healed themselves with aid of the spirits all manner of illnesses and afflictions to be able to in turn aid others. They are extremely unique, extremely rare, old within, and exist in small quantities in many cultural groups. Their bodies may indeed be riddled with cancers or other fatal conditions that they somehow live with, but are not identified. The ice princess was probably very powerful and very unique and very special to her people having been identified for what she was. Great article

About the author

Ginger Perales

When Ginger's original dream of writing the next great American novel didn’t quite work out she turned her thoughts to math and science. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering, after which she spent 18 years employed with a city public works department which allowed her to write the great American mortgage check. But that's all behind her now (except for the mortgage) since she seized the opportunity to start a freelance writing career - can the novel be far behind? She lives in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States with her husband of 26 years (talk about history!) and when not at the computer enjoys cheering for her favorite football teams, home improvement projects and a good mystery novel. Her favorite points in History are those when engineering had a profound effect on the people of the time, from the Roman aqueduct of Segovia, c. A.D. 50, to the Panama Canal, c. 1914, to whatever's next.
