Shamanism & White Magic

Newbie here I'm currently researching these two areas, for a few reasons, and was hoping that some of you lovely mystics could point me in the direction of reputable books, YouTube videos... any solid resources, really. Thank you so much!

'White' reminds me of ‘magical notation’.
For example the fate/destiny of Saami is tied to the reindeer with the special spiritual notation with the White Reindeer.
So the albino reindeer is a taboo animal as it is believed to be personification of the Deity that looks after the well-being of all reindeer …. hence people ….

White magic is to me the spiritual things I do to do positive things; help, protect, give strength. Other than that, the whiteness as such lies in the purity and color of the energy.

Shamanism is the path of achieving contact with the other side to achieve one goal or another. The classical roots to this seem to lie in eastern european and asian cultures, and involves drumming and visions and rites. Not so much physical healing and that sort of thing. I have been poking into shamanism for a while and once you strip away the cultural connections it seem to come pretty close to mediumship. One opens the window to the the other side, looks and talks, ask for help or advice, then comes back and passes the message on if there is one. I have indeed found that drumming is a powerful tool for shamanism to help me focus and pray, but I do it my way.

You can find aspects of shamanism and white magic in virtually any religion's holy books.

An older topic, but alas.
It is near impossible to point another in a direction with that little information.
For instance, what do you consider to be shamanism?
If you could give more clarity and direction in that, e/g is it Nat. Am. Indians? Witchcraft? African?
Shamanism is a very broad thing.

The same goes for white magic. Most everything is white magick unless it is specifically designed to harm other people. That would be black magick. Manipulating is ALSO black magic. Which include manipulative love spells in which someone tries to make someone love them.
So anything out to harm and take away others' free will and free choice is black magic.

As for what or who resonates with you... it's very personal. It's best to just browse the net based on what it is that has your interest now. It'll grow from there.
Like I grew into witchcraft at the time for a few years via an interest in Paganism and the Celts. I simply began reading about that, searching online to find info that resonated, and the ball began rolling from there.

From my understanding, any ''magic'' that's based on human vices is black magic. This is not just violence but also greed (praying to win a million euros/dollars) or vanity (love potions for instance). White magic is supposed to be selfless and not with any reward in mind.

Praying to win the lottery doesn't have to do with greed. It can be sheer desperation or lack of shortage. That's not greed.
Love potions can be white magick provided you don't try a specific someone to fall in love with you. If it's to help you yourself get on the right vibration it's perfectly fine and selfless.
I've done love things, not potions as I don't do potions, but absolutely beautiful and leaving it up to the Cosmos and absolutely 'white' magick.

I know this is an old post but I was just reading through this post and found a lot of interesting books to read. Going to try to get this one The Magical Knowledge Trilogy
by Josephine McCarthy seems an interesting read.

Every time & culture has it's Magickal traditions. i have found it more suited to me to look more into the traditions of my own culture - English Shamanic / Celtic Druid - Vedic - Gnostic - Gothic - Traditional Folk Magick - High Magick.

However it's all relating to the 'same things'.
