    When Obama starts talking about faith healing or snake handling, then I'll get worried.

    By contrast here are some of the things Perkins says:

    "All of us have the ability to shapeshift on a cellular level -- to transform ourselves into jaguars or bushes or any other form with which we create an alliance. "

    Spirit of Change: What is shapeshifting?

    John Perkins: From my perspective, shapeshifting can be divided into three levels although it's actually more of a continuum. First is the cellular shapeshift which is when a shaman actually shapes into a jaguar or a warrior hunter shapeshifts into a tree or animal of any kind.

    SOC: This happens on a physical level?

    JP: Yes, it happens on a physical level...

    People in the Amazon don't know what cancer is and they can't believe it. When I first started bringing people with cancer to the shaman for healing, the shaman would look inside them as they do using what they call pentsak, which is a technique for actually looking inside a person's body. They would look inside these North Americans' bodies and see these outrageous growths that they'd never seen anything like before. Now that's a very strong cellular shapeshift.

    The shamans have dissolved a number of those cells. We've had people come with bad tumors and cancer, have healings and go home, and then go to the doctor's and the tumors are gone.
