All About Shamanic Soul Retrieval

 What is Soul Retrieval?


Why do we need a Soul Retrieval?

soul4During life people suffer  trauma, we tend to leave the body temporarily in order to cope.  If a soul part decides to split off into spiritual dimensions, we suffer soul loss.

It can’t return on its own and it has no emotional nor mental contact with you.  It stays connected to your spiritual level until such time that highest Spirit says it’s time to return.  That “time” may be after long intensive psychotherapy,  after years of devoted meditation,  when you seek a soul retrieval, or when you die and all your soul parts are reunited.

Trauma occurs in many ways,  everyone has suffered some sort of trauma,  they can be caused by major life events such as

  • Abuse as a child or adult – physical, mental , sexual
  • Death of a loved one
  • Major accidents such as a car crash
  • Operations
  • Major Illness
  • Difficult births:- Mothers or babies

Any time someone says” I have never been the same since a certain event”  and they don’t mean this in a good way soul loss has probably occurred.

Although soul loss is a survival mechanism the problem from a shamanic point of view is that the soul part that left usually does not come back on its own. The soul might be lost, or stolen by another person, or doesn’t know the trauma has passed and it is safe to return.

It has always been the role of the shaman to go into an altered state of consciousness and track down where the soul fled to in the alternate realities and return it to the body of the client


There are many common symptoms of soul loss.

      • Dissociation where a person does not feel fully in his or her body and alive and fully engaged in life.
      • Chronic depression,
      • Suicidal tendencies,
      • Post traumatic stress syndrome,
      • Immune deficiency problems
      • Grief that just does not heal.
      • Addictions to  food, relationships, work, or buying material objects.
      • Blocked memory or not being able to remember parts of one’s life
      • The inability to make decisions
      • the inability to feel love for others or receive love from another

Working with my spirit guides  I will journey into the spirit world  to retrieve the soul parts that spirit finds.  Results of soul retrievals can be so innate and instinctive that you may not realize until after the fact that you are now doing what used to be difficult or impossible to do.  The integration process is crucial for gaining all possible benefit from the soul retrieval itself.


or those who are ready to make those changes, soul retrieval can bring relatively rapid release and healing. However, most people still don’t understand that spiritual healing is not instead of other modalities of healing. Rather, spiritual healing requires and inspires healing on all levels. If the other layers of the self aren’t addressed, no spiritual healing approach can bring lasting results. With soul loss, in the absence of those needed soul aspects we develop coping mechanisms to deal with feeling the lack of power. We may lose our ability to be decisive, or we may overeat to compensate for feeling empty. These kinds of coping devices are just like any other in that we have to conscientiously work to release. They don’t magically go away. We still have to address them along with soul retrieval and integration. We have to practice mindfulness. We may have to change our routine, our relationships or perhaps how we see ourselves. We have to be prepared to make whatever shift — small or great — is required of us to remain vitally empowered.

Like soul retrieval, this holistic approach to well-being isn’t new, either. It’s not New Age or western ingenuity. In fact, I can assure you that there are shamans, however they call themselves, deep in the woods across the world who probably do wear bones and speak strange languages, and every one of them knows we must participate in healing ourselves. If we aren’t willing to do the grounded work to keep open the balanced rapport between our souls and our earthly consciousnesses, we can’t expect the parts of our souls that need healing to stick around.
