Do you feel "empty" or that "something is missing"?
Are you feeling detached, as if life is passing you by?
Do you suffer chronic illness or grief?
Have you "lost" your memories of events or entire periods of your life?
All these feelings can indicate that you may have lost your vital essence, or soul.
Soul loss is a self-protective response to trauma.
If you suffer from the effects of abuse, alcoholism, neglect, rape, mass shootings, gang violence, war, homelessness, bombings, or hidden family violence, you are at risk.
When your psyche feels it cannot survive a particular situation—whether abuse, addiction, or danger—part of you may split off, or dissociate. This loss creates damage to your energy body and your spirit.It makes it hard to feel joy and participate in your life.
The effects of soul loss can last a lifetime, and beyond. Someone with soul loss may carry her wounds, fear, and inability to live well for years.
Generations also pass on trauma at the cellular level—you can literally inherit genetically stored trauma. In the study of epigenetics, scientists are discovering that inheritance is weirder than we used to think.
When your loss is so great that you can't seem to get yourself back on track, no matter what you try, you may need help in recovering your lost essence and support in remembering and experiencing your wholeness.
Soul retrieval is known and used worldwide in nearly every traditional indigenous culture.
It is a classic shamanic healing ceremony in which a healer seeks out or tracks your lost soul parts, with the help of spirit guides, and returns your soul parts to you. This helps you return to the wholeness you were born with. Your life purpose, self-protection, well-being, and connections are clarified and restored.
It is one of the most ancient and beautiful shamanic healing ways.
Soul healing changes your experience, and alters the dynamics of your family constellation and ancestors. You:
Then…you can engage in life again with gusto. You no longer feel empty. Your grief gives way to joyful connection. You learn to love your life and love the world again.
The healing work that you do after your soul retrieval—to absorb and integrate your soul parts and their gifts back into your life—is essential to your regained wholeness. This supportive and guided follow-up work is frequently called soul remembering.
During your soul remembering process, you:
When you want to do soul healing, you need to be ready to receive support, and commit to your own healing. You have to be willing to shift your focus from pain—what hasn’t worked in your life—to joy and possibility.
The more you are willing to experience and perceive differently, the more you gain from the process. Just as the “cure” of a cast on a broken leg requires physical therapy to strengthen and heal muscles and tendons, so does soul remembering necessitate your direct engagement with your own healing. When you don’t follow through, not much will change.
First, trust your heart and intuition.
Choose someone you feel safe with.
Find someone who will support and facilitate you as you discover your strength, power, and soul’s purpose in the world.
Look for someone who will help you to embrace, make space for, learn how to nurture, and draw on the strengths of your returned essence(s).
