The soul retrieval is an indigenous ceremony to bring home pieces of the soul that have been torn away through physical and/or emotional trauma. None of us have lived life without enduring many traumatic events….some events actually cause pieces of our energy to tear away from the aura, creating gaps and fissures.
You know if you have soul loss; you feel that something important is missing. You feel that you are not whole, that you are empty or unfulfilled, damaged and stuck. You may have been in therapy for years, and yet still unable to move past an event; you may be repeating negative behaviors and having the same negative story play out in your life, over and over.
You may even remember the exact moment something took place that left you feeling shallow, and like a “piece” left you.
I distinctly remember one such event in my own life: my divorce. Even though it was amicable on most levels, and something we both agreed needed to happen, there was a deep trauma inside me afterwards. In fact, I told someone at the time, “I feel like someone took a bite out of me”. And that was long, long before I knew about soul retrieval!
Indigenous cultures did soul retrievals immediately when something damaging happened to a member of the community. They did not let the soul piece get too far away. They acknowledged the great trauma, and they ceremonially thanked and honored the piece(s) for leaving and “protecting” the emotions of the person, so that suffering was lessened. Then, they called back the piece(s), healed and returned them to the person. Afterward, the energy field of the person was again whole, allowing recovery from any physical and emotional aspects associated with the traumatic event.
Most modern cultures never acknowledge soul loss – instead, we tend to say “buck up, pick yourself up, get over it”. We do not acknowledge that our spirit is conscious, alive and able to work with us in “realms and dimensions” that our physical eyes can’t see. We don’t talk about the human energy field and how it can be fractured or torn or disrupted.
In soul loss, our spirit sends our soul pieces out, far, to a place where they can feel safe and protected. Unfortunately, we tend to leave our energy “out there”, never even thinking to go look for it. Imagine the loss of someone over 50 years old, who has had many traumas – how far the pieces must go! How well they must hide!
The soul retrieval can repair these energetic scars and holes, bringing back the pieces and reintegrating them so that the aura is once more complete and full. Please read the attached article by Sandra Ingerman (who has 3 decades of experience and is a well known teacher of Shamanic soul retrieval) for more information, and do research online as well.
About me: As a practitioner of shamanic soul retrieval, I aid you in recovering the lost pieces and returning them to your energy field, while helping you understand the story of your soul loss.
I have 2 methods that I have created, methods based on the work of both Sandra Ingerman and Alberto Villodos, another professional and long time practitioner.
My Methods: I utilize two methods of soul retrieval, based on the intuition and needs of the client:
1) One method is for those who wish to allow the practitioner to take on the job alone, and to trust the process without having to understand and participate all aspects as the process unfolds.
2) The other method requires the client to participate in great measure along with the practitioner – this method takes longer but is well worth the effort.
BOTH methods are effective. Which you choose is entirely based on what you feel will be best for your situation. Most often, a client knows immediately which method is the one that “feels right”. Trust your initial feeling.
If you really can’t decide, then are a few things to consider about each. Read and contemplate, and then make your decision, knowing it is the correct one for you. Do not let the price difference be your decision-making end point. This is usually a "once in a lifetime" event. DO WHAT RESONATES. You will know which is best and how to proceed!
METHOD ONE: Practitioner works alone ($200)
This method is useful for those who cannot, or do not wish, to “revisit” events that took place when soul pieces left, or who do not want to know “why” things have happened. It is important to understand that conscious involvement with, or remembering of the soul loss episodes is not required in order for the pieces to be brought back.It is perfectly fine if a person does not want to engage in the second, longer method, which takes much effort on the client’s part. Remember, we are working in the energetic realms, the vibrational dimensions…there is no need to use the brain or the emotions to work through things for a soul retrieval to be successful.
In this first method, I begin by journeying for the client, usually a week or two before the soul retrieval ceremony. During this journey, I ask the client’s energy to show me what is appropriate in order to complete the soul retrieval. I journey to other dimensions and I visit with the energies of the client and his/her guardians and guides. I am led to the soul pieces, and I listen to the stories that are presented. I return and record the journey (in written form) so that the client may read what has been retrieved.
After reading the written account, the client has the actual Soul Retrieval Ceremony, usually a week later. (Please read “Soul Retrieval Ceremony” at the end for a description.)
METHOD TWO: Client and Practitioner work together ($350)
I find this method useful for those who “know” they must participate, have a need to understand and verbally speak their story, and want to consciously use their own powers and understandings to facilitate the retrieval. This method takes longer, is more involved, and requires a greater amount of energy and ability to handle one’s own life and story. Method Two is not for everyone, but it is important for those who resonate with it. I find that many healers, long time meditators, professional therapists or medical personel, and people who practice energy medicine prefer this method. While this method is longer, it enables the client to fully know her/his story and the “why” of events. There are many empowering journeys that we do together. We make conscious changes and together, we explore and recover soul pieces while finding out much more information.
How it works: a general description
In this method, I start by doing exactly what I do in the other method- I journey for the client a week or two BEFORE the soul retrieval ceremony. During this journey, I ask the client’s energy to show me what is appropriate in order to complete the soul retrieval. I journey to the other worlds in the non-ordinary reality, and I visit with the energies of the client and his/her guardians and guides. I am guided to the soul pieces, and I listen to the stories that are presented through symbols. I return and record the journey (in written form) so that the client may read what has been retrieved and interpret the symbols.
However, unlike the other method, in this method the client participates by reading and contemplating the messages that are given, and then speaking with me about the events. One week before the soul retrieval, the client and I speak and we work through the events together by several means.
Sometimes the client feels the need to explain and talk in length about the events that led to soul loss. The story is often so important to the client that it needs to be spoken aloud and to be witnessed by me in order for the client to feel the process fully. He/she is then able to welcome home the pieces. During this process, we take all the time we need.
I then share with the client a specific meditation/journey process. In this process, the client will learn a special breathing technique and will then journey to a lovely, safe garden. Known as “Eden”, the garden is the personal safe haven of the client. It is unique to the client and will be the point of departure and return during the soul retrieval process. It is important that the client who wishes to have this longer soul retrieval process be able to journey to their private garden space.We can learn process together prior to the retrieval if needed. It is not difficult to learn!
On the day of the actual soul retrieval, I meet at the client’s home or another place the client feels comfortable and surrounded by love and familiar things. It must be a private place, free from distraction. The client and I work together using guided meditation and a cooperative “journeying”, i.e., the client and I go together in search of the pieces and speak directly with them.
This is a long event and takes several hours for all parts to be completed. We will take frequent breaks, and there should be light snacks and plenty of liquids prepared before the day begins.
How it works: details
Once we begin, here is what takes place during the four journeys:
1) Together we enter the “Caves” or chambers necessary to complete the soul retrieval. These are
Garden Space (The safe haven /point of departure and return)
Place of Wounds (We find the original source of the loss/es)
Place of Contracts (We see and renegotiate the contract(s) agreed to)
Place of Grace (We find the original soul pieces in their perfect divine form)
Place of Treasures (We discover tools that will aid in securing pieces)
In each place we will discover information and symbols that the client will understand and be able to use. All information is extremely personal and unique to the client.
After we visit each place, we return and the client journals what they encountered, so as to have the information for later use. YOU MAY AUDIO RECORD ANY PART you wish, but the journaling process is still needed. Writing will bring up more information that may have not been present at the journey.
The entire process takes several hours. Together, the client and I work through the energetic events that led to the soul loss and discuss the environment in which the pieces will be brought home to heal.
When this process is over, the actually soul retrieval ceremony takes place, usually the same day, but sometimes the client wants to have the ceremony at a later date. (If done on another day, this can be negotiated for an additional fee.)
The actual soul retrieval ceremony is almost identical to that used in the other method. Please read “Soul Retrieval Ceremony” for a description.
SOUL RETRIEVAL CEREMONY
The ceremony is a part of both method 1 and method 2.
This is the actual event in which you are re-integrated with all retrieved soul pieces. The process is beautiful and can be very emotional. I ask that you have at least one person present at the soul retrieval ceremony who is close to you, loves you and will welcome home the “complete” you. You may have several people of you wish, but at least one.
The ceremony should take place at your home, or another place that you feel at home. It can be anywhere, even if the place is in nature (forest, beach, etc) as long as privacy is assured. There can be no interference from outside sources.
I will prepare the ceremony area, which is simply a place to lie down next to the client (usually a palette on the floor). I require a person to drum for me, and it is best if the client has someone who can do this for me, however, I can bring someone (at a small added charge) or we can use a CD if absolutely necessary.
The ceremony is quite beautiful and symbolic. After prayers and grounding/shielding, the client and I lie together shoulder to shoulder on the floor, eyes closed. The drummer begins, and I go into the other worlds and retrieve the soul pieces that have come forth in the previous journey. Also, any power animals, gifts and talents, or additional messages that wish to be integrated will come forth. This can take a few minutes to half an hour. I capture the pieces and bring them back, and then I will blow the pieces into the client’s heart chakra. I then sit the client up and blow the pieces into the crown chakra as well.
I then do energy healing work on the client, allowing the body and energy field to reintegrate the soul piece energies. When I feel everything is balanced, I ask the client to open his/her eyes, and I welcome him/her home. I share the story of what took places, and the client may also share his/her experiences.
Others present are asked to welcome home the “complete” soul. We partake of food and drink, grounding the energies and discussing the ceremony and the protocols and homework for the coming weeks, as full integration takes place.
The soul retrieval is an amazing healing event, allowing the client to have a complete energy field….maybe for the first time since birth. Functioning in energetic totality can be QUITE A CHANGE, SO PLEASE GO SLOWLY AS YOU ADJUST.
An outline of what to do after the retrieval will be provided at the ceremony. Many things will/can change quite rapidly!!! Others will be more gradual, but a soul retrieval is a life changing ceremony and is something all people can benefit from.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or to make an appointment.
PLEASE CONTACT ME OF YOU WANT TO SCHEDULE. I require $100 deposit paid upfront, non-refundable. If you have an emergency and have to cancel your soul retrieval event, your deposit can be applied to a later date if you reschedule at that time. I cannot refund this deposit once paid.
Your soul retrieval is the beginning of a great healing. By having soul pieces returned, you are able to move forward in your personal story. Your personal power is all important in understanding and manifesting the life you came here to live. No one should suffer and be powerless throughout his/her life. You are a divine being who has the right to reclaim anything lost or stolen from you.
The soul retrieval is a beginning step that allows you to live in a powerful state and to re-write the story of your life.
Please contact me if you need anything or have more questions!
I look forward to assisting you in your quest for a purposeful and joyous life!
