Cathexis

The term seems to mean that a certain amount of psychical energy achieves some particularised interest to absorb itself in, and thus does not remain like lava underneath the surface.  but now has some outwardly directed function in relation to a particular idea or object.  I’m not sure this has any direct meaning for intellectual shamanism.  Perhaps it could relate to the very early stages of “initiation” where one still leans on some idea of a shamanic master or leader who will assure you a safe passing.
