You may have heard of the concept of “soul retrieval.” But, if you are like most people,
you may not know what it actually means, or if it is something you should do!
Soul retrieval is the process of recovering the lost soul fragments and is typically performed by shamans.
Soul retrieval practices exist in many cultures.
Shamanism is the oldest spiritual practice known to humankind. We know from the archaeological evidence that shamanism was practiced all over the world for at least 40,000 years. However many anthropologists believe that the practice dates back over 100,000 years.
The purpose of the Soul Retrieval process is to recover the parts of our subtle bodies that have fragmented by following traditional Shamanic ways to find these lost soul pieces, and then what is done to fully reintegrate these fragments is the therapy part.
Anyone who had a trauma, from a shamanic point of view, may have had some loss of their soul. By soul, we mean the spiritual essence essential throughout one's life as we describe life in our culture,
which is from conception or birth to the time of death. The techniques for healing soul loss are soul-retrieval techniques, and one of the classic shamanic methods is to go searching for that lost portion of the soul and restore it.
Soul retrieval and reintegration provide the following benefits:
You’ll feel grounded
You’ll be energized, awake, and feel more alive
You’ll notice that you seem to have greater influence in the world
You’ll become more aware of decisions, choices, and behaviors
You’ll have an unexplainable surge of joy or feeling of lightness
You’ll notice better physical well being and experience lesser sickness
You’ll sleep better
You’ll be more equipped to battle addictive tendencies
You’ll feel a sense of belonging or wholeness
You’ll notice better mental clarity
When a soul retrieval is done, usually you feel really tired for the next few days. Healing can take days, to weeks, to months, and this is considered spiritual and energetic surgery. Many emotions can surface as you going through the healing process as well, but in the end, most feel more whole afterward, and that is the whole point!
