Walking with Elijah: The Fable of a Life Journey and a Fulfilled Soul is the story of Doobie Shemer’s literal and spiritual journey from kibbutznik to shaman. As he recounts the significant events in his life – his childhood in Israel, the loss of his father, the influence of Grandma Tova, his introduction to shamanism – Doobie takes us with him on his journeys to the spirit world to share his vivid mystical experiences and the answers he finds to life’s key questions.
Now, twenty years on since he first met Elijah, his Spiritual Teacher, Doobie has incorporated spiritual work into every aspect of his daily life. As a practicing shaman himself, Doobie regularly helps family, friends, and strangers to find answers and solutions that are both practical and spiritual.
Walking with Elijah: The Fable of a Life Journey and a Fulfilled Soul inspires us to fearlessly explore our own spiritual path and to walk paths never walked before.

~ Walking with Elijah, Chapter Five – Love and Soul.
“Angels are the second level of souls. They are souls who have accomplished their purpose and may decide not to return to Earth, but to stay in the Red World. Souls which have reached this level are ready to help the plain souls, either on Earth or while they are in the Red World. However, angels may choose to return to Earth in a human body to become a soul mate to plain souls. Angels can also go to Earth as spirits, rather than in a physical form, to help plain souls attain their purpose.”
Questions flew out of my mouth. “Do we see these angels? Can we talk to them—pray to them?”
“Yes,” replied Elijah to my hurried questions. “When a human calls an angel it is actually the human soul that needs help, support, or advice. This ‘calling upon the angel’ happens mostly while the human is asleep, in the world of dreams, since only while sleeping is the soul free to connect with angels or other non-human helpers.”
“Free of what?” I asked.
“Free of coping with the human mind,” replied Elijah.
It’s amazing, I thought to myself. I need to journey some more with Elijah on the topic of souls and the mind. I looked him, hoping for a sign of agreement.
“Indeed,” he said. “Let’s walk on it.”
I thought I saw him smiling, but it might have been my imagination.
Doobie Shemer’s incredible life journey began in his birthplace, Kibbutz Givat-Brener, Israel. Yearning to explore life’s meanings, he has traveled widely and experienced many cultures—mystical India, beautiful Cyprus—before making his home in California, where he is now a practicing shaman, journeying for others.
