Split Off Fractured Soul Parts
The conscious light body of the primal soul as exists in its completed original state - whole and at one - is multi-dimensional and holographic. When subjected to certain traumas, the soul has the potential to split off or fracture into many separate particles of light and consciousness, each part respectfully called an "aspect".

As a small holographic reflection of the whole, each aspect - separate from the primal soul - may have (or develop) its own energy field, personality, self determinant will and ego identity. As the aspect travels through time and space, it gathers its own unique experiences and memories and eventually begins to identify itself as an independent "entity". Because it is fractured and separated from itself, the soul (diffused in so many separate aspects) is sorely limited in its ability to access all of its power, manifest all of its light presence, or expand into the full range of its "consciousness".

"Why can't all ones stuff be worked on and cleared in one session?"
The fractured soul, because it does not have full access to all of its power, can only process a small portion of stuff at any one time. If it tries to work with something bigger than itself, it will be too overwhelmed and turn off. However, the more whole and complete your conscious light body, and as more and more of your scattered aspects are united into oneness, the more work you can do at any one time and the faster and more powerful your healing process.

The Soul as a Computer Processor
The soul is likened to the processor of your computer - it takes information, digests and sorts it. The bigger your processor memory, the more bites of information you can work with at any one time. When the souls' memory or "consciousness" is whole, complete and available, the soul has access to 100% of its processing capacity. For the sake of conversation, lets imagine a particular soul has 100 gigabytes (100 billion bites) of consciousness/memory. If this soul is presented with a problem that is 1 gigabyte in size, then the soul can probably process that information within a short period of time. But once the soul is fractured into multiple aspects and the consciousness scattered into separate disconnected pieces, the ability of the soul to process is markedly diminished. For example, if the soul is fractured into 100 separate aspects each with 1 gigabyte of consciousness, then if any one aspect is presented with that same 1 gibabyte sized problem, either it crashes the soul processor or it takes a very very very long time to work out the answers.

Everyone wants the most powerful processor so that their computer can handle any problem and run fast and smooth.
Why not have the most powerful efficient clear soul you can possibly be?

Collective Consciousness
Not only does the primal soul have the ability to fracture off into separate aspects which may then travel all over the multi-verse, it also has the ability to unite its consciousness and energy with any number of other souls and their respective aspects, aggregating into a sort of "collective consciousness" and mass energy field. This is demonstrated in nature as the hive mind of bees, ants, fish and other herding creatures... and is also seen in human couples who have been together for so long that they start to sound, think, feel even look alike ! There is comfort, safety and power in such a collective, but the downside is that the individual identity and self determinant will can easily be lost and submerged into a whole that runs on baser instincts, emotions and majority rule. If such a collective consciousness takes on malicious intent and turns dark, then the aspect can be swept away, controlled by the will and power of the mob, trapped and unable to escape. It is only when the soul reaches out to a Higher Power greater and more whole than itself can it ever hope to be free of such entanglements.

Incarnation of the Soul and its Aspects
The primal soul or any one of its aspects, may at any time choose to experience itself in alternate dimensions and go through the process of incarnation. In order to function and survive within the density of these dimensions, the soul/aspects cloaks around itself (like the rings of a tree) the energetic "matter" (vibrations) of those dimensions. Until shed, these coverings remain with the soul/aspects as part of its energetic bodily wardrobe, each layer adding to its unique identity or personality. As there are countless dimensions to incarnate into, the permutations are virtually endless. In some dimensions the soul/aspect may take on the appearance of amorphous gelatinous blobs, geometric chrystaline structures, or alien like insects or reptilians.. while others appear in "mythic" garb as fairies, elves, goblins, hobbits, unicorns or even dragons. And on those dimensions where the energies are so dark and heavy, souls/aspects may resemble demons and other assorted nightmarish creatures.

Because of the fluidity of consciousness, the primal soul and its aspects has the ability to take on an energy body and incarnate on any dimension. If you think about it, the ramifications are staggering ! On the physical dimension, this means that the prime soul and or its aspects can incarnate into any number of human bodies at the same time... what some call the "doppelganger", a sort of soul "clone" (perhaps you to have a soul clone running around). Not only can one aspect incarnate into one body, but the aspects from many different primal souls can form a collective and also incarnate in one body ! in other words, many souls can cohabitate and experience themselves in One Body as One Being ! Incarnating aspects of one or many souls into many different bodies allows these souls and or aspects the opportunity to experience life in many different situations and potentially accelerate the re-union or "ascension" process of the soul back to Source. For example, if during the last century a soul incarnated its aspects into parallel lives as an American soldier, a girl in Timbuktu, a Buddhist Priest in Tibet or a Jew in Poland... the collective learning experiences could have catapulted that soul beyond what any one life could achieve. But what if in another parallel incarnation one of the souls' aspects became a mass murderer, or even a Hitler? The problem for the prime soul is that it is held responsible for anything any of its aspects does. Meaning, if an aspects generates dark negative karma, all of it must be cleared before the whole soul can re-unite and ascend. Fortunately, this clearing work is offered here.

 "And though I understand all mysteries and all knowledge but have not love, I am nothing" (Paul of Tarsus).
As you receive healing, you may gain psychic abilities and esoteric knowledge, but this is not the end all be all of the spiritual path nor of this work. One-ness and Love of Self and All Creation is the ultimate goal.

Aspects as Shadow Selves
Our soul has been around since the beginning of creation, traveling through many different dimensions in many assorted bodily forms. Through this very long journey, we have experienced countless traumas that have fractured us into many separate pieces or aspects. Some of these aspects may reside within or on the periphery of the physical energy field, but most are wandering around in the multi-dimensional universe following their own ego driven agendas (agendas that your human self may have no clue about). The farther these aspects stray from the Divine Light separate from Source, the darker they become even to the point of being shadows of their former self, at the extreme.. demonic. Because these dark or demonic aspects are a part of us, by virtue of the "law of resonance", even from great distances (out of time or in limitless multi-dimensional space) they can influence our mind, emotions, impulses and will. Many think that it is an outer demon that tempts, torments or possesses a person, and in some cases that may be true, but in many instances such a demon is actually an aspect of ones own self coming home to roost. In any case, demons do exist.. either as a split off aspect of the soul... or as a collection (or "legion") of dark aspects that have amassed from many separate aspects into one body. The consciousness known as "Satan" is such a collection made up of a huge number of demonic aspects gathered from many many beings. This brings a whole new level of understanding to the term "giving your soul to the Devil". Many souls have given up the dark, unwanted or unloved aspects of themselves to such collectives in order to be rid of them, or so they think... but this only makes life for the rest of the soul and its lighter aspects more difficult.

The Law of Resonance
All aspects that have ever been a part of you, “resonate” or have an affinity with all your other aspects on whatever dimension they exist. Having a resonance with those aspects also includes a resonance with the dimensions they reside and any other beings that inhabit there. The implication is this: if these other dimensions are dark, and the beings there are malevolent (i.e. demonic), and you have a demonic aspect residing in that place, not only can your own demonic aspect potentially plug into and influence your subconscious/dreams, desires/will and energy fields in the here and now, but any aspect of those other souls (using your separated aspects as proxy) would as well. However, if you have made peace with your inner demons (meaning, you have healed, transmuted, purified, processed and integrated your demonic aspects back into the whole), the demons of other souls would have no power over or influence into you (since the resonant consciousness that held the connections are no more).

All your aspects - no matter if they are good or bad, light or dark - cannot help but have an eventual influence upon your current incarnational experience. This influence more acutely occurs during the mind and energy field opening and weakening effects of certain drugs and alcohol, or even under extreme stress and physical or emotional trauma. In such situations, separated aspects can bleed through the barriers or veils and manifest in the human self as any sort of personality changes... from the most subtle altercations in mood or thought, to the most extreme even paranoid schizophrenic behaviors. Since these aspects individually and collectively make up who you are as a soul, no matter your efforts to push them away or create thick walls of protection, you cannot escape or eliminate their influences forever. The best you can do is to receive the work that would clear and raise these aspects to a higher vibration, allowing them to unite or re-merge into the heart or source of their Creator.

Aspects as Astral Selves
At the levels of the astral or psychic dimensions, there are (or can be) multiple astral aspects, astral bodies, astral selves, or "sub-personalities" that make up our psyche. The "astral self" was created as an extension or projection from off the Higher Self as a way to interact with the reality of these denser dimensions. The difficulty arises when the ego mind (part of the make up of the astral self/personality) grows unfettered and disconnected from the guidance and light of the Higher Self. Such a personality then needs to be tweaked or "pruned" - just like a neglected tree or an overgrown garden. When our "soul garden" is thus trimmed or weeded, then our mind and emotions are clear enough to distinguish "the forest from the trees" (so to speak). In other words, when all these weeds, undergrowth, or "stuff" is cleared out of our spiritual energetic space, then we can discover who we really are amidst the confusion that is our life.

As these astral aspects, astral selves or sub-personalities have their own separate egos, minds and will, they are often at odds one against the other, keeping you in conflict, inner turmoil and separation. The most difficult problem is to unify all these conflicting wills towards a single goal, eventually integrating all separate aspects or selves into one being. This is thee greatest struggle we will ever face on our spiritual path. One who has aligned and integrated all these separate aspects and their conflicting wills into one unified self is considered a Master.

In the meantime, most of humanity exist isolated and in conflict with itself and others, run and controlled by fear and anger, separate from the power light and love that is the totality of our greater primal soul self. Changing the landscape of our individual and collective souls from this sad state is one reason I do this healing work.

Aspects as Child Selves
The aspects of self that incarnate on the astral and physical dimensions, if disconnected from the Higher Self, can become like a wild child whose limited material perspective on all things and beings revolves around its own constant, immediate and selfish wants, wishes, needs and desires. It is guided by sporadic impulses and feelings, not having any sense of consequences or higher purposes.

The Higher or God Self - the spiritual source or “parent” - wishes only good for the lower or “child” parts of itself that are projected or incarnated into creation. However, if the child self is enraptured with the illusions, distractions and drama of this world, then they might not be able to hear the important messages of guidance and wisdom coming to them from that "still small voice" of their God Self within.
For example, the Higher Self may say "Don't do that, it will hurt you."
And the child may say "You are not the boss of me. I want what I want"
By following its own ways, the child/lower self digs a hole deeper and deeper into trouble, turmoil and suffering.. and then asks "why has God done this to me?"
And over time, fear, mistrust and resentment steps into the childs heart against their own God Self (parent), and will reject its well meaning guidance entirely. When this happens, the Greater Spirit (other God Selves) will send ministering angels and spirit guides to the child to act as "spiritual step parents" (if the child rejects its own God Self, Spirit will not leave that child in the world without some support, even if that support comes from another being entirely). The hope is that after enough suffering, the child self eventually opens its mind and heart and wants to reconnect with its own self. But if the energetic blocks are too strong and the disconnects too wide, the high or low self might not be able to get through to each other. It's like when you make a phone call but can't hear very well because there is a lot of interference patterns in the lines between you and the person you are talking too. And if the line or technology itself is actually broken or not present, then any form of direct communication cannot happen. In this case, calling an outside repair person (the healer) is the best thing to do. This being may help remove these blocks and interference patterns so that you may once again reconnect with your own spiritual parent or Higher Self.

Multiple Child and Adult Aspects
It would be lovely if the soul could maintain itself as a unified whole being throughout its entire existence while in physical reality, but soul fracturing trauma may potentially occur at any and every stage of development: from the point of conception... all the way up to the point of death (and beyond). Soul fracturing creates separate compartmentalized aspects of self where those aspects are trapped and stuck at the various ages when the trauma occured. These aspects of self are not only trapped and stuck on various stages of development, but they are also blocked off and inaccessible to all the other aspects of self ! This seriously affects how one experiences and responds to life.
For example, if a person experienced traumas during that phase of development of emotions, then that person might not have access to the feelings of that particular aspect, and probably be an intellectually focused individual incapable of true compassion or love for self or others.
Or, if a person was traumatized during that phase of development of mind, they might not have access to all the mental faculties of reason and intellect of that particular aspect, perhaps trapped in distorted patterns of thinkng, lack psychic boundaries and be subject to the fluctuating thoughts and emotions of those around them.
Or, if a person was traumatized during that phase of development of sexuality, then they might not have access to the sexual feelings of that particular aspect... or have no sense of physical boundaries and become sexually promiscuous.
I mentioned just a few, but there are countless examples of soul fracturing... all of which can be addressed through the work generally categorized as Soul Retrieval.

Soul Retrieval
In the work known as "soul retrieval", separated aspects are cleared, returned and integrated into a unified whole... bringing the eternal soul as it exists in and out of the body into a more cohesive and expanded sense of light, love and power. Considering that split off aspects for any given soul may possibly be counted into the hundreds, thousands or even millions, it is fair to say that many healing sessions are required to bring them all into oneness.

Missed Opportunities
If we hide behind the walls of our judgments, fears, anger, resentments... resistant to spirits guidance and in denial of who we really are, we will miss out on many good opportunities that are just waiting outside our door and around the corner. Of course, we are always free to reject our spirit self and go a different way, but in doing so, we may never reach our full life potential and our greater destiny may not unfold. There are windows of opportunity that are only open at certain times - if we are not prepared, these opportunities may be lost to us for good. And if we are not awake and open enough to read the subtle warnings and signs, we may find ourselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, making a left turn instead of right, miss that job offer, not meet our significant other, get in an auto accident... the list goes on and on.

Self-Discovery Practices

Internal Dialogue
The following is a form of journaling that may help you discover your inner sub-personalities, inner selves or “aspects”.

Write a list of all the characters of your inner-personal drama. Feel free to let your imagination roam. For example, there is you, the ego, the child, the adolescent, the adult, the parents, the angel, the alien, the space being, the animal, the beast, the demon (and there may be any number of each, not necessarily just one).

Personalize and name each one. Feel free to choose whatever you imagine they would like you to call them.. or just allow whatever name comes up.

Next, develop an ongoing conversation or dialogue with each one of these separate selves. Have them individually speak to you, and then have them communicate with each other.

It may help to give each character a different color of ink or even a separate form of handwriting. Do this by holding your pen differently for each character, using your left and right hand and different finger positions. Once you find a hand position for one character to write with, stay with it - do not change - you want to establish and strengthen the link between that character and your nervous system/body.

(Btw, another way to communicate with your inner self is through Dowsing)

As you explore who you are through this method of journaling, you may discover some unpleasant aspects of yourself, with voices that may be controlling, manipulative, hateful, angry, and perhaps quite malicious. Some of these voices could be from your own self, but in many instances they are foreign external entities - aspects of other souls lurking within your psychic emotional energetic space. It is these beings who want to keep you separate from your self, for as long as you are fractured and in disarray, you are out of your center, confused, weak, powerless, vulnerable, malleable, controllable. It's hard enough dealing with your own stuff, add some other souls stuff into the mix and your burden and work is that much harder. In either case, bringing in some outside healing help will make this journalling exercise (and your life) go that much more powerfully, clearly and smoothly.

Faces behind the Face
"Aspects" can actually be seen as "faces behind the face". If one looks just right, the superimposed impression (or shadow) of a face may be seen (it may not always appear human nor be light). Some people can see this quite easily, others not at all. As an experiment, sit opposite a willing partner (or even in a mirror under a soft light), and glance gently and diffusely onto the others face and eyes (perhaps gently focusing around the 3rd eye or brow). There is some subconscious control in what (if any) faces another will allow you to see. If there is trust, openness and a non-judgmental attitude, the soul faces behind the face may reveal themselves to you.

Oija Board, Drugs and Alcohol
I don’t advocate the use of the Oija Board, drugs, or alcohol as tools to get in touch with Spirit for I feel their use can cause more harm than good. As long as people have parts of themselves that remain un-integrated, un-transmuted, or un-purified, there is the risk that lower and darker entities may come into your energy field and adversely affect your consciousness. The Oija Board, certain drugs and alcohol have a tendency to lower your vibrational frequency and forcibly open you up to unresolved issues, things and beings that are lurking in the periphery of your energy field. If you have thoroughly healed all aspects of your self (thus greatly strengthening your aura) you probably have nothing to worry about from the spirit world. I don’t mean to say drug and alcohol use is a good thing and is not going to harm your physical or mental body. I am just saying that after a certain point on your healing path, your spiritual energetic immune system is fully functioning and you can step “where Angels fear to tread” and will (by and large) not be harmed by anything the world throws at you. But few people are at that point of having an impeccable spirit and an impenetrable energy field. So in the meantime, its better to be safe than sorry and stay far away from these substances.
