The shamanic neophyte is a person who becomes aware that they possess a cluster of unusual abilities, usually through experiencing them directly. Some beginners simply stumble into this awareness.For the unprepared, this can be problematic, to say the least. Most Westerners do not live in communities in which interaction with spirits is part of their experienced reality on a daily basis therefore they have no levels of support or abilities to take care of themselves while going through such experiences. The shamanic initiate may have no clear idea of what is happening to them, and given Western psychology's tendency to pathologize behavior, they may find themselves in fear of their paranormal experiences.
They may also find themselves very much alone because they usually discover rather quickly that they have to be very circumspect about with whom they share their experiences. As a result these days people going through shamanic initiation experiences often are not able to provide adequately financially wise for themselves such as money for rent and food and clothing as their is no community supporting them through these experiences.
