Yes, a shaman is human and may keep secrets. Yes, in a simple way, if a shaman sees someone who is to die, he may not reveal this to be so to avoid upsetting anyone.
Many shamans have passed on knowledge secretly to avoid persecution. This has basically come to an end. The knowledge is out there but may be too far from your reality for you to accept it. There is a huge outburst of spiritual information coming through at the moment. Many children are being born with greater than normal multidimensional awareness (the Indigos).
Shamans often go on a "journey" as part of an initiation.
If I am drawn to something and fearful, I go with it, as I always prefer to act out of love rather than fear. This usually involves healing the fear.
I feel what you are scared of is your own power and desire to come into acceptance of it. That is my perspective.
On your own journey, it is up to you to discriminate. Fact and fiction often come together. A lot of what anyone says, including what I am saying, may be true for you, the rest I could be added in for ego-based reasons. Deep down you know yourself, and you yourself choose what to do.
Another "secret": there is no right and wrong, only choices.
Another "secret": we are all one.
