Shamanic Healing and Soul Retrieval
Shamanic healing is one of the vast numbers of healing
modalities available for us to experience today. Like acupuncture its
roots are in the mists of time and like acupuncture it works with unseen energy.
Acupuncture is usually associated with the East, while there have been shamanic
healers for thousands of years in tribal communities all around the world.
Shamanic healing is about energy, and typically the
shamanic practitioner sees lack of health and well being on any level as being
about loss of energy in some form. Trauma, stress, abuse and serious accident at
any time in one’s life can result in loss of life force, vital energy or
essence which is known as ‘soul loss’. In order to survive seriously
challenging situations a soul part leaves the individual and takes refuge in one
of the other worlds, taking with it some of the life force. It does this to
assist overall survival. However, it often results in depression, apathy,
inability to move on after a loss or death or problems with the immune system.
It is the job of the shamanic healer to track down this soul part in the other
worlds, to offer it healing and reassurance and to invite it to return and bring
back its positive qualities. This is known as ‘soul retrieval’ Once
the soul parts are returned, life takes on a new brightness and can be lived
with more optimism and delight.
Without our inherent vitality and connection to the cosmic
web we become dis-empowered, dejected and dispirited. The shamanic solution is
for the healer to journey to the lower world to retrieve the individual’s
power animal. Power then returns along with the ability to approach life
more confidently and completely and
people can deal with the challenges it presents.
