A description of the experience
The Mystic Cosmos - by Evgueny Faydysh [edited to improve the English]
Naturally, the Hopi also had initiations directed towards more practical aims, for example obtaining the gift of healing. Such shaman-healers had first of all to develop the centre of inner seeing placed between the brows. According to legend people did not know illnesses. Both physical and psychical illnesses appeared when evil entered the world.
People or spirits influenced by evil were a source of many sicknesses (they were called two-hearted people). Besides, some diseases could be provoked by natural reasons. In order to define the reason of sickness the shaman-healer [placed] his hands on a patient's energy centres. First of all he examined the top of the head, then the centre over the eyes, the one in the throat, on the breast near the heart and on the belly. The Shaman defined the source of the disease on the basis of centres' vibrations.
