The above pictures are of old (ancient) shaman's coats. These coats are an essential part of a real shaman's ancient traditions. These coats are made from a combination of silk and fur and on them hang glass beads, shells, bronze bells, pieces of blessed and empowered cloth, thogchags (Mongolian & Tibetan charms), and Bronze Shaman's mirrors (Toli & Melong). All of these items make up the Shaman's universe and are needed for his special ancient healing. These coats can be very heavy with all the bronze Toli and Melong (Mirrors) Thogchag (Mongolian and Tibetan Charms) and other sacred and blessed items. These coats are special healing articles and contain much of the sacred power that the Shaman will draw upon in his healing and magical work. By wearing coats such as these the Shaman is actually wearing and is always reminded of his special magical universe. The Shamans coat is part of his protective armour which protects him from hostile and very dangerous spirits while he shamanises and heals. The large Toli and Melong (Shamans mirrors) are hung on the coat to deflect the attack of hostile and dangerous spirits and also act as a home for the Shaman's own helper sacred spirits. The outer ring (on the back) shows the domain of Rahu, the Star God, a deity in charge of the planets and time. The next ring shows the twelve zodiac animals of the Tibetan zodiac, and the inner circle the eight Trigrams. The front of the melong mirrors away negativity by reflecting it. This melong (Mirror) is over 50 years old. This type of Melong (mirror) has been used for many thousands of years. This old and sacred melong mirror amulet is perfect to wear as a protective amulet. These amulets are used for divination and protection, and were said to have been created by Padmasambhava when he came to Tibet in the 7th Century CE. Tibetan's hang them over their front doors, inside their houses or wear them as talismans. The outer ring (on the back) shows the domain of Rahu, the Star God, a deity in charge of the planets and time, the next ring shows the twelve zodiac animals of the Tibetan zodiac, and the inner circle shows the eight Trigrams. The front of the melong mirrors away negativity by reflecting it away from you. Please note: This is a real Old Tibetan Shaman's Melong mirror and not a modern Chinese copy. The Tibetan Shaman’s Melong The Tibetan Shaman’s Melong (mirror) is used to ward off and to reflect away evil. These mirrors are also used in traditional Feng Shui to reflect away all negative influences and to increase all positive influences. Small Melong can be worn as amulets. These Melong mirrors are often found in archaeological digs as they had a major role in ancient death traditions where a mirror was often placed on the dead person’s chest to keep the person safe on their journey to the next world. There are many wall paintings in old tombs that show Shaman holding up these Melong so that any bad spirits would be frightened away. These magical mirrors have many different names depending on the region that the Shaman comes from. In Manchuria they are called Panaptu, in Mongolia they are called ‘Toli’, and in Tibet ‘Melong’. A Shamans mirror is not a mirror as we know it, all clean and perfectly shiny and reflecting. A real Shaman’s mirror can and usually is hazy, dull, and well scratched and black with great use and age. These Melong, (Tibetan Mirrors) are used as an aid to seeing into other worlds in a manner that is similar to scrying. This includes seeing into the future and diagnostic work where the Shaman will gaze into the reflection of the sick person and will then diagnose the illness. When used for healing work this Melong is not just used to reflect the illness but it also contains pure positive sacred healing power which has been gathered and stored inside. This mirror is then placed upon the sick person and the pure positive power is transferred. This mirror can be put into water for 24 hours and the healing energy that is stored inside will be transferred to the water to turn it into a spiritually encharged nectar that the sick person can drink. These old sacred Melong mirrors are a container for spirits. These can be the Shamans own helper spirits when used by the Shaman. They can be the spirit of the ailment or disease that has been taken away from the sick person or a special sacred container that is used by the Shaman to hold the missing parts of a sick person’s soul which has been found in the spirit world. A Melong mirror can also be used as a window or portal through which the shaman passes to enter the spirit world on a shamanic journey. The Melong is still used and worn nowadays by astrologers, healers, lamas and shaman. Sky energy is a beneficial energetic influence in Tibetan geomancy and melongs help to activate it in order to improve ones health, general wellbeing and to increase ones lifespan. Melong are also used to wash and cleanse sacred objects. To do this the object that has to be cleansed should be reflected in the Melong, and then water should be poured over the reflection. Different sides of the Melong mirror. The Concave side: focuses sacred light and power into a central spot, and will encrease the energy. This side (concave) is worn next to (facing) the body. The Convex side: will reflect by distorting and will magnify the images shown in it. This is similar to a shaving mirror and must be worn with this side facing away from the body (outwards). Melong mirror. A Melong will help to dispel evil, bad or difficult mental states: Hold your melong at arms length with the concave side towards you. You must now visulise your problems leaving you and passing through the Melong. Your problems will pass through the Melong and will vanish. The above two pictures are of a Shaman's mirror costume from North East Manchuria ,The Peoples Republic of China. This Shaman's costume (pictures above) is one of a series of elements which allowed a shaman’s body to transform into a ‘vessel’ that received different spirits. Among the Imin Numinchen, shamans were primarily concerned with healing, prediction and with people’s relations with their ancestors. This costume belonged to a young female shaman who died in the 1930s, aged 25. No two costumes are identical. They are assembled and added to as a shaman becomes more experienced, incorporating materials from different sources. The brass mirrors came from Chinese merchants. The heavy shaman's mirrors act in a double capacity – they protect the shaman by deflecting harm, while revealing what is normally invisible to the human eye. The number of mirrors on the costume indicates the shaman’s powers and maps a geographical cosmos. By wearing the costume, the shaman is located in the centre of this cosmos. During performance, a shaman is seized by one or more ancestral spirits, so that what is inside the mirror-costume is the spirits, rather than the shaman’s body. Here, the body is something open to forces that can control it, inhabit its form and shape its physical features. ********************************************* It is very difficult if not impossible to find an old Melong (shaman’s mirror). Traditionally when a Shaman died his mirror or mirrors would be buried with him. If they were not buried with him these sacred Melong mirrors are usually passed on generation to generation. Sometimes a Shaman might hunt a mirror by trying to find out where other Shamen were buried and then dig it up. Sometimes a Shaman’s mirror that had been buried would ‘speak’ to another as it would want to work with the living Shaman instead of staying with their deceased original owner. . **************************** In ancient Tibet a bronze mirror was also used as a a love token, and a funeral object whose purpose was to signify a love that carried on into the afterworld. In ancient times it was believed that the soul lived on after death, but that as a person made their way to the netherworld they were forced to drink a potion that wiped out all memory of events in their lifetime. Devoted couples sometimes held half of a mirror at their funeral, so that on entering the afterworld they could meet, match their mirrir half's and resume their life together. Tibetan Calendar In the Tibetan calendar years are named after one of the animals of the Tibetan zodiac (horse, sheep, monkey, bird, dog, pig, rat/mouse, cow/ox, tiger, hare, dragon, snake). Apart from this cycle of twelve years, there is a cycle of ten years in which two subsequent years are indicated with one of five elements (iron, water, wood, fire, earth). These cycles combined give a sixty (12x5) year period of unique combinations of an animal with an element. Every year is divided into lunar months which in principal consist of thirty days but might be shorter because unlucky days are not counted and some holy days are counted twice. Then every month has four special days of worship: the 8th, 10th, 15th and 25th. And every year has its special holy days. The birthday of Buddha was celebrated in 2002 on May 26. In Mongolia the lunar new year is called Tsagaan sar, meaning the white month (sar = moon / month), which is celebrated during a few days at the end of the 81 days winter period. Nomads divide the year into periods of nine days, and winter thus consists of nine of these periods. The periods have names like: `Lambs must be covered´ and `Not cold enough to freeze the soup´. The main shamanistic ritual called the Great Sacrifice is held on the third day of Tsagaan sar. ******************** The items on this Spiritual-Sky eBay site, call you to go back, far back in time to when you were a child. In those days you thought that nothing at all was impossible, you could do anything and everything. In those days long ago your spirit had not been reduced by negativity you believed in pure and special magical powers and your mind was open to receive and discover and to understand the mysteries of life. ***************************************** Our Sacred Blessed and Empowered items have PURE POSITIVE SACRED POWER and they can and will be attuned to you. Do you remember long ago that you had the ability of second sight, and other special abilities. You might never have revealed this to anyone as you felt slightly afraid and were not sure in yourself. Years later life takes its toll and you now think that these special abilities that you had years ago are now gone. These abilities NEVER GO, you still have the same abilities but you now have to clear a path to open your mind and be able to go back to your childhood and let your mind open up. When you work with our Sacred Blessed items you will soon realise that these are SACRED SPECIAL TOOLS and will work for you in many different ways. They will open up a PURE POWER FLOW FOR YOU, and enable PURE POSITIVE ENERGY to enter your divine spirit. ********************** GOOD FORTUNE: comes about when the energies of your body and mind click together. This is not just about the creation of wealth: good fortune is the experience when you know deep inside you that everything is right with the world. It is when you and the divine enjoy each others company. Good fortune is a natural state of mind that is part of who you are. It is inside you, just wanting to be released. Start by asking for it. Be humble and receive. If you seek good fortune unskilfully- in other words, selfishly- you will create obstructions. Good fortune never ever comes in a way that you expect it, so open your heart for a happy suprise. You keep your good fortune by sharing it and learning from it, not by showing it off. Use your good fortune by showing other people how to access it, based on your own experience. Please note: This is a real Old Tibetan Shaman's Melong and not a modern Chinese copy. ********************** For centuries many Buddhists have believed that by carrying a blessed amulet with Buddha images, Luang Phor (Thai Buddhist Monks) or Gods you will be given good luck, and protection. Blessed amulets will guard you from danger, will dispel evil and negative bad and dangerous energy, and protect you from disease. It is believed that a blessed sacred Buddhist amulet will help you to gain great wealth and will guard you and give you success while you are at home, at work, or travelling. Amulets can be cast from metal or carved from a piece of wood, ivory, bone, or made from a special magical powder that contains hundreds of different special and secret ingredients that are then pressed into a mould and then baked. After this is done the amulets are blessed by monks in order to give the wearer the sacred spiritual power of protection. There are very few people in the world who can feel and sense and need this sacred and special power. It is important that sacred amulets be treated with respect by wearers. **************** Vesak (Sinhalese) or Vaisakha ( Sanskrit ) is the most holy time in the Buddhist calendar. The exact date of Vesak, informally " Buddha's Birthday" is in the fourth month in the Chinese lunar calendar (typically May), coinciding with the first full moon of that month. The date varies from year to year in the Western Gregorian calendar and actually encompasses the birth, enlightenment Nirvana, and passing (Parinirvana) of Gautama Buddha. Bringing happiness to others Celebrating Vesak also means making special efforts to bring happiness to the unfortunate like the aged, the handicapped and the sick. To this day, Buddhists will distribute gifts in cash and kind to various charitable homes throughout the country. Vesak is also a time for great joy and happiness, expressed not by pandering to one’s appetites but by concentrating on useful activities such as decorating and illuminating temples, painting and creating exquisite scenes from the life of the Buddha for public dissemination. Devout Buddhists also vie with one another to provide refreshments and vegetarian food to devotees who visit the temple to pay homage to the Blessed One. Paying homage to Buddha Tradition ascribes to the Buddha himself instruction on how to pay him homage. Just before he died, he saw his faithful attendant Ananda, weeping. The Buddha advised him not to weep, but to understand the universal law that all compounded things (including even his own body) must disintegrate. He advised everyone not to cry over the disintegration of the physical body but to regard his teachings (The Dharma) as their teacher from then on, because only the Dharma truth is eternal and not subject to the law of change. He also stressed that the way to pay homage to him was not merely by offering flowers, incense, and lights, but by truly and sincerely striving to follow his teachings. This is how devotees are expected to celebrate Vesak: to use the opportunity to reiterate their determination to lead noble lives, to develop their minds, to practise loving-kindness and to bring peace and harmony to humanity. Shamanism is humanity's oldest form of relationship to the spirit world. As such, it is the underpinning beneath all religion. But shamanism is not a religion. It is a complex set of practices, beliefs, values and behaviors that enable the practicioner to elicit a shift from ordinary consiousness into a trance state with a specific goal in mind, such as for healing, obtaining information, power, vision, divination, contacting the spirit of the deceased, soul retrieval or guidance for right action. Shamanic work is done with the aid of a helping ally of some sorts that the shaman has befriended. They work together as a cooperative team, with the ally being an intermediary between different levels of reality and the shaman, an engineer of altering states of consciousness. ************************* Shamans throughout the world and throughout time, recognize that the universe is alive, conscious, and filled with spiritual power. Shamans know how to access this web of power and work with it skillfully and effectively to address their, and their community's needs. Shamanism is the use of shamanic practices within a shamanic value system. Traditionally a shaman goes through the experience of a "calling", usually through illness, accident or some unusual quality of being, then through an arduous apprenticeship of teaching, training and testing, followed by some sort of passage rite into their new status. Typically shaman do not define themselves as such. Instead they are defined by their community based on what it is that they do. Becoming a shaman and living as a shaman is a difficult and demanding life path that many indigenous people shy away from because of its formidable requirements. It is not about fun and glamor. Unskillful and uneducated acts can cause harm, or even be life-threatening, to the practicioner as well as to others. For shamanism deals with power, and power can move in many different ways, like electricity. It is important to move slowly with respect, humility and care. ***************************** Master your words. Master your thoughts. Never allow your body to do harm.
