Ancient Tagalog Deities in Philippine Mythology

Ancient Philippine mythology varies among the many indigenous tribes of the Philippines. Some groups during the pre-Spanish conquest era believed in a single Supreme Being who created the world and everything in it, while others chose to worship a multitude of tree and forest deities (diwatas). Diwatas came from the Sanskrit word devata which means “deity“, one of the several significant Hindu influences in the Pre-Hispanic religion of the ancient Filipinos. Sandra Ingerman.

Why would a person who has suffered the emotional horrors of abuse ever afflict another human with such degradation, shock and horror? The diagnosis provided by psychological examination leaves the question unanswered, admitting that there is no hope of understanding, let alone of cure. The mental health paradigm holds that the best that can be done for the victims, and perpetrators, of abuse is to help them to contain and maintain their trauma.

The archaic spiritual form of Shamanism, however, provides clear insight into the underlying cause of abuse, and its effective treatment. Journeys to our origins.

Heroin addiction is blamed on human weakness and social problems and addicts are labeled as criminals.

But it is now known that some humans suffer from a lack of natural opiates in the brain, which causes them to seek the illegal remedy of heroin. They are not really criminals; they just need medical supplements. Unfortunately, our lack of awareness sees heroin only as a moral issue, so the long-term solution to addiction, like a DMT (dimethyltryptomine), or a morphine supplement taken daily, is not allowed in our society. I don’t mean methadone that is sometimes prescribed, as a heroin substitute after a person is addicted, but a supplement that is given those that have an on-going opiate deficiency in their system, before they become addicted.
