About this Modality
Shamanism is an ancient form of spiritual healing that is used to restore balance and wholeness by addressing the root cause of a person's problem or illness. A shamanic practitioner uses a drum or a rattle to shift into altered states of consciousness so they may access different realities in the spirit world in order to bring back healing, information and power. Shamanic healing is an effective form of healing to address any physical, emotional or mental health issues. It is excellent for restoring self-confidence, self-worth, self-love, and a person's individual sense of power in the world. Shamanic healing is also effective for removing unwanted energies, soul retrieval, retrieving a spiritual ally and for ancestral healing. It is a powerful form of healing that may be used in combination with any other healing modality.
Additional information about Soul Retrieval Sessions- Everyone experiences what shamans would call 'soul loss.' Soul loss happens in a person's life typically as a result of some traumatic incident (an accident, any type of abuse or assault, the loss of a loved one, illness, being in a natural disaster, surgery, addiction, experiences of embarrassment or ridicule, etc.). Any event that causes a person shock can cause soul loss. During these traumatic incidents a piece of our soul may leave in order to protect us from the immense pain that we would experience if we were fully present in our bodies at that time. In the moment of trauma soul loss isn't seen as something bad that happens to us, it is actually seen as something that is good because it is protective. It is how we survive pain. It can be similar to the protective effects of what psychologists would call dissociation during a traumatic event.
Soul loss in the moment of trauma is not a bad thing, however, if soul parts do not return on their own after the traumatic moment has passed this is when they can begin to cause problems (or symptoms) for people. Symptoms of soul loss can include some of the following: not feeling fully in your body, fully alive, or fully engaged in your life; chronic depression; fear, PTSD; immune system problems or chronic illness; chronic misfortune; addictions; grief that does not resolve; lacking memory of large parts of your life; low self-esteem; depression; anxiety; suicidality; lack of self-worth, self-love and self-confidence; etc. In a soul retrieval session, it is the role of the shamanic practitioner to track down where the soul essence has fled to and return it to the person. Clients experiencing soul retrievals often report very profound effects on their personal lives, healing and overall health after a session.
