The Latin spiritus means ‘breath’, which is also true for the related Latin word anima, the Greek psyche, and the Sanskrit atman. Spirit – the breath of life – is what we have in common with all living beings. It nourishes us and keeps us alive.
That this sense of oneness, which is the key characteristic of spiritual experience, is fully confirmed by the understanding of reality in contemporary science. Shamanic energy deals, symptoms of trauma within an individual that are recognized to interconnect with and arise out of your grandparents (ancestral) legacies of experience. The idea that our environment and lifestyle can alter how our genes behave is part of the new field of science called epigenetics.
