Shamans of indigenous cultures within the village, community or tribe, understood that when someone experiences a trauma, not only are the physical and mental/emotional energies affected by this trauma, but also the soul or spirit.
When a person experiences a 'trauma' an essence or quality of our spirit may leave because it is not safe to be present at that time. The aspects of our spirit do not leave us because they are abandoning us, they leave because they are seeking a safe place to reside until it is safe and welcomed to return. A prime example is someone being in a car accident. Many times, there is a loss of memory that accompanies the trauma. Our mind and emotional being "shut down" or dissociate from the trauma of this event, and so a part of our spirit can also "dissociate" or leave us.
Soul Retrieval does not involve returning that aspect of the spirit which is wounded, but rather the gift or pure vital essence which did not feel safe, thus left seeking safety. The vital essence has a quality which is important for you to have returned to you. For instance, it might be the essence of "safety" that left you when you were 15 because of some trauma that occurred in school, or at home, or in a car accident, etc. When this essence is returned to you, it enables you to move into a state of cohesion or wholeness. As a result, healing occurs on many levels. Sometimes that healing is on the physical plane, or on the mental/emotional plane or both. The healing can be very subtle, but can certainly affect one's life in a very profound way.
This is a sacred ceremony, and it takes time and the ability to hold space for the new essences to be welcomed and integrated into your present life. It may be necessary to check in with me within a few weeks to talk about the integration process and if needed, have a follow up session to assist with the healing process.
POWER ANIMAL RETRIEVAL:
A power animal retrieval is a simple, yet effective shamanic ritual that can provide support to a client. The benefit is revealed in the phrase 'POWER' animal; you are em 'powered' when the spirit of the animal is returned to you.
When someone has had a loss of power due to a stressful event (think divorce, surgery, the loss of a job, illness) then it may be helpful for him or her to receive a power animal retrieval.
Power Animals sometimes stay for a very long time, and sometimes they leave and allow for a new ally to come in. Sometimes we may find that a Power Animal is coming back to us to help us through something specific occurring in our lives. Through a Power Animal Retrieval, the spirit of a Power Animal is returned to a person for the purpose of bringing power and healing.
A spiritual intrusion is a form of negative energy which has gotten stuck on a person, an animal, a place, a building or other life form.
Spiritual intrusions can cause a variety of symptoms on the mental, emotional, or physical aspect of a person.
Some of the symptoms are:
-Chronic physical illness that has not responded to other treatments
-Chronic pain that does not respond to treatment and cannot be diagnosed by traditional methods
-Sleep and/or dream disturbances
Remember that thoughts and words (whether positive or negative) are energy. When we send negative thoughts and/or speak negative words to another person this may take the form of an intrusion. This energy, when directed to another person, place, animal or other life form has the power to effect someone very dramatically. It is very important to be responsible for our own thoughts, emotions, and actions and to bring awareness to the quality of energy we bring into the world.
What? A curse, you say? Yes! A curse sounds like a crazy thing that may not exist, but it is way more common than you think. Here is an example: Imagine a couple who gets in a horrendous fight and one of them says to the other, "You will never find someone as good as me. No one will ever love you as much as I did!"
Gasp, guess what - that's a curse! A curse can be intentional or unintentional (the example above was an unintentional curse, which is the most common curse. An intentional curse involves MAGIC, and we won't get into that here, just leave that part to me!) Curses occur when an intense emotion/energy/intention come together and basically energetically create a blockage within the recipient's life. A curse begins most commonly in a past life (yes, it helps if you believe in such things!) and then ripples out/echoes into a current life. You can also curse yourself.
Symptoms of being cursed:
- Always feeling like you are taking 2 steps forward and 3 steps back
- A sense of something holding you back from manifesting what you want
- "Bad luck" in money, love, career or any area of life for that matter
- Health issues that no practitioner or doctor can resolve
- Something always going wrong, no matter how much you "try" to make it right!
No, this is not referring to Exorcism! A person, place, pet, or object (house, for that matter!) can be "occupied" by a Being who has not been able to cross over to the next realm after death. This is incredibly common, as Death is not something our Western culture accepts or wants to understand. Many Spirits become bound to the Middle World (which is this Earth plane - physical reality) for multiple reasons. A loved one may not want to let go, so they attach themselves to the person they can't let go of. They may have unfinished business or a sense of emotional attachment. Many Beings are not aware that they have died, especially in moments of traumatic death, such as an accident, sudden death, murder, or suicide. Human beings who are alive, have a life force energy and a light that is very attractive and comforting to Beings who are stuck. However, the effect on a living human who has a Being attached to them, isn't supportive.
Symptoms of Possession:
- Not feeling like yourself
- Dramatic mood swings
- Anxiety and panic or depression
- Intense body aches and pains
- Illness/Disease that suddenly comes on
- Feeling dissociated or disconnected
- Not being able to manifest your intentions/move forward in life
Both Curse Unraveling and Compassionate Depossession are powerful pieces of healing work and can truly create a miraculous opening to living the life you were meant to live. Many clients report a complete turn around in their luck, health, and overall quality of life.
All of us have ancestors. Many of our Ancestors have experienced trauma and soul loss, or have inflicted wounding onto the living. It is very common to unknowingly carry unresolved patterns (mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual) that our Ancestors suffered from. Ancestral lineage repair is very much like a combination of all the soul tending offerings listed above. I also highly recommend doing your own Ancestral Lineage Repair work by purchasing Daniel Foor's book, Ancestral Medicine: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing or visit his website, www.ancestralmedicine.org.
