Tobacco: Power Plant
Tobacco has been used by Native Americans in shamanism since before written records.
The smoking of tobacco is believed to have begun as early as 3000 – 5000 BC.
Mayan vessels have been found to contain potent tobacco, dating back to 700 AD.
By the mid 1600’s, every major civilization had began the practice of tobacco smoking.
It was used in ancient shamanic ceremonies for spiritual protection, and for its vast healing power.
It is still used by shamans for these purposes today.
Some of Tobacco’s medicinal properties include: muscle relaxant, concentration enhancer, anti bacterial, anti septic, anti parasitic, anti inflammatory , anti-anxiety, a treatment for schizophrenia, and a neuroprotective.
This is not to necessarily suggest that tobacco smoking is a healthy habit,
but to highlight that it has beneficial qualities, applications in medicine, and is a powerful “ally” in shamanism/mysticism.
