There is not any one session exclusively labeled as "Soul Retrieval"...
spiritual energetic healing is just not that clear cut. One
problem is always linked to another, and another, on and on... so
diverse healing "methods" must be incorporated. This makes it very
hard to exclusively label any one session as being just "Soul
Retrieval" or just "Exorcism" or just "Karma Clearing"... but for
the sake of conversation, we shall try to accommodate your need for
such conceptual boxes.
A souls typical reaction to a traumatic experience is to create
distance or separation from it, even if that means giving up the good
bits and pieces of ourselves that happen to be associated with that
trauma. If a trauma is severe enough, this dissociative process may
happen instantaneously, or if mild but reoccurring, a pattern may
gradually build over a longer period of time creating an ever expanding
schism in the soul. All such traumatic events (even those that
occurred in a previous life or on another dimension) leave scars
("samscaras") that affect the souls experience of the present and
if not healed, perpetuate far into the future.
A few examples of trauma that can cause the soul to separate
physical, psychic and/or sexual abuse
excessive use of psychotropic drugs or alcohol
physical mental or emotional stress or pain
the sudden loss of a close friend or loved one
a severe physical accident or prolonged illness
lack of direction, meaning or purpose in life
absence of support, companionship or love
betrayal, failure, rejection or abandonment.
Symptoms of Soul Loss
Feeling lost, incomplete, that something is missing
Events and periods of time are absent from memory.
Feeling numb or flat, just going through the motions
Feeling hopeless and indifferent, a spark is missing
Feeling disconnected from life, as if living in a dream
Directionless, unable to focus or make life decisions
Having low self esteem, lacking confidence
Addictions to people and or substances
Compulsive behaviors and or obsessive thoughts
An inability to move on or recover from past events
Feelings of anxiety, grief, guilt, shame, fear, loneliness, depression,
anger or rage.
Infinity of the Space Time Continuum
Fractured off bits and pieces of the soul often get trapped and lost in
some "past" or "future" multi-dimensional "time
With a significant enough loss, this will impede the souls ability
to be fully "in the moment" and live in "present" time.
Co-Dependency - the Soul Held for
There are many cases where it is not "where" or "when" parts of your
soul may reside, but in "who". Such parts (either given up, projected
or stolen) may be found lodged within another entity... held ransom to
their slightest whim or fancy (see exorcisms
energies, even segments of your consciousness may then be
incorporated into that being, only to be used and abused (this may
be what psychologists describe as "co-dependency").
The Journey to Retrieve Your Soul
Spirit journeys into the infinity of the space time continuum... into
the hidden, dark, shadowy nether regions of the "Underworld"... into
the timeless and remote dimensions of the "Dream Time"... collecting
and returning to you those lost, split off, discarded, sold, abandoned,
neglected, forgotten bits and pieces of your self : your light, your
wisdom, your knowledge, your power, your spirit, your consciousness,
your joy, your memories, your love.... Etheric DNA restoration and
rewiring occurs during this time, as your soul parts are reintegrated
back into the matrix of its original pattern.
Escapists and Opportunists
It is in the nature of the universe to abhor a vacuum (even a spiritual
energetic one). Thus, when we fracture, isolate, divest, scatter or
separate ourselves from our soul, in its place (in those areas we
vacate and leave open), we will attract the energies and consciousness
of other beings and forces who, like us, are seeking to escape outside
their self. By abandoning our personal spaces, whoever or whatever
moves in to take its place does with it what they will (even if it not
be pleasant or nice). One may then feel under constant pressure or
attack... or it may seem like our life is not our own (and in a very
real sense this is so).
Soul Retrieval is
NOT a Simple Process
There is a lot more involved in Soul Retrieval work besides
retrieving the soul back from where it has wandered.
Clearing Your Internal Space
Your Soul Self cannot return and be fully reintegrated, in whole or
part, if there is anything foreign occupying those spaces where your
soul originally belonged (light and dark cannot occupy the same space -
one or the other has to give). Thus, Soul Retrieval work necessarily
involves the removal or clearing of all energies and consciousness
that don't belong in your personal space (ie. all that which blocks the
re-integration process). This clearing usually requires a lot of hard
work (a lot of sessions), for we typically get quite attached to our
stuff and do not readily or willingly want to let it go (even if what
returns to take its place will make us more happy and whole).
How Much Soul Retrieval Work is
How much healing work you need depends on a number of factors:
- How much of your soul is separated from you...
Some peoples souls are just a little off their bodies...
while others are scattered throughout time and space.
- How much stuff do you hold...
some people hold a little here and there...
while others hold lifetimes worth.
- How attached are you to your stuff...
if you are ready to let go, it will be easy and fast.
if you are very attached, it will be hard and slow.
Either way, the healing work will get all of you back.
This is Non-Conventional Work
I have dispensed with the traditional methods of shamanic soul
retrieval (such as ceremony, drumming or hallucinogens) as my
Spirit achieves just as good (if not better) results without their use
(once you receive some sessions you will know what I mean).
Soul Retrieval is Subtle
Though Soul Retrieval mostly occurs on the higher dimensions of energy
and consciousness... it does resonate with and have a latent
affect on the lower self and the physical body. But generally speaking,
healing the soul can be very subtle work that is (for many
people) very hard to feel (at least initially). However, if you
receive enough sessions, sooner or later you will notice the
differences. Some people sense the shifts right away, others a few
hours or days later. Typically, when it comes to our own self, we are
usually the last to notice any changes. If you are in doubt, ask
someone else (who is more objective) to give you feedback. In any
event, whether you are aware of it or not, if you do this work you will
The results of the Soul Retrieval work is like switching reception on a
TV from an antenna to satellite - surfing along with the remote control
you suddenly discover you have access to all these new channels. In
other words, Soul Retrieval unleashes hidden treasures (or channels) of
the Soul that have been unavailable and locked away... so what has been
previously out of mind and out of reach is now present in your energy
and consciousness. Whether you are aware of this in the moment or not,
it will be there when you truly need it.
It would be nice if everyone received dramatic healing experiences to
rally their faith around this work (in certain cases, this "proof" is
provided) but indicators of immediate results may be a bit more
difficult to track since anything to do with the soul (especially soul
healing) typically affect levels that are often so far removed from
ones physical spatial awareness. This does not discount the importance
of this healing... in fact in some ways it is even more important as it
fills and connects those imperceptible spaces in-between.
Soul Retrieval work is like...
-an electrical circuit-
if one small wire is connected the whole turns on.
-a jig saw puzzle-
one piece allows for a recognition of the whole image.
-a chemical formula-
one ingredient can catalyze a new powerful reaction.
Sometimes it is the most subtle of things that make all the difference.
This is no more greatly seen than with Soul Retrieval work.
The Absent Soul
When you remove a picture that has been on the wall for years, you
notice the faded paint in silhouette. When parts of the Soul are
absent, you may sense an empty space in yourself and have the feeling
"something is missing"
To have the Soul present in ones life is likened to a "Grand Palace"
filled with treasures.. but its absence is like looking from outside in
and seeing empty rooms. You may even have money in the bank, but you
still feel poor.
The Soul is like this elaborate crystalline matrix floating around ones
head. Some points and branches well developed with facets the color of
the rainbow... others not, some even missing. There
could be tens, hundreds, thousands, maybe even millions of these points
and branches in a souls matrix... yet as long as any one is undeveloped
or missing, the whole is somehow out of balance. Like an incomplete jig
saw puzzle - the final image may be hinted at (if enough of the pieces
are present), but what remains is the feeling "there must be more".
Soul retrieval work returns the missing pieces of the self to
where they once were, as the empty rooms of ones inner being fill
in, and the light of the self starts to shine stronger and stronger
through the "windows" (eyes) of the soul.
From inside the rooms or "chambers" of the Soul, there are many windows
where we can peer into other dimensions. There are also many doorways
where we can ascend or descent into other dimensions... and once
entered, each dimension will be experienced as a unique energy and with
a unique consciousness, each holding sacred knowledge and
hidden mysteries. The more we can open up to our
multi-faceted multi-dimensional self (having access to all of
our soul branches or rooms) the more we can also be of greater service
to the whole (and in ways unique to our soul).
We are like enormous mansions... for some, there are neglected rooms
waiting to be restored to their original splendor. Out of fear (or was
it ignorance) some of these rooms have been closed off with steel
shutters, locked, keys thrown far away or lost. Who knows what
treasures lay inside? Too long ago to remember... we are a mystery
More on The Absent Soul
Since the Soul Self dwells within the higher (and lower)
dimensions, there are occasions where it may be so fully engaged in
certain activities on those levels (often involving karmic or
contractual obligations) that it may be totally absent from
participating in your earthly life. In these instances, we do what work
is required to free your Soul Self from these entanglements so that it
may be present with you, and in turn, that you may be able to access
its Light, Wisdom and Guidance. Until the time, your human self will
If you find yourself missing or not in full communication with your own
Soul Self, you are just not going to be running on all cylinders -
there will be something “off” about you (maybe seen in your timing) and
you are not going to be fully present in and responsive to life. In
order to compensate for this loss, you may have a tendency (or
compulsion) to fill this emptiness with the external approval and
validation of others – from those who represent or symbolize the
qualities of your Higher Soul Self, such as those who are in authority,
have power, fame and fortune (the gurus, politicians, movie stars and
moguls). This is understandable for we are all seeking wholeness in
whatever ways or places we can find (if not wholeness in ourselves,
then in others, like our children, partners or spouses, or even in our
work, or political causes).
If you find that your Soul Self is way off in the distance (doing
whatever)... absent and far removed from easy access, other spirit
beings may step in to take its place. Like spiritual step parents,
these other beings may give spiritual guidance, but this guidance -
since it is not coming from your own self - may not necessarily be in
full accordance with your own soul agenda or highest truth. It is not
that these beings are necessarily bad, but they are never going to be a
perfect substitute for your own Soul, and they will never be able
to channel to you your own authentic voice, vibration, energy, or
The ultimate agenda of the Great Spirit is to help you be you. When
your own Soul Self is speaking or singing or writing or moving through
you as you, it’s an experience of completeness. This is actually a much
more miraculous (and more difficult) thing to accomplish than trying to
be a channel for some other spirit entity (no matter how great).
The goal of all spiritual healing is to make you more you - that
you may be fully present and
complete. That's the "Big Plan".
The Fall from Grace
The Soul is made up of little and big links in a long chain that is our
conscious and energetic connection to God (perhaps these links are, on
the physical level, the DNA strands missing from our genetic makeup?).
If we lose just one link on our Soul chain, our spiritual perspective
of the "Big Picture" is diminished. Thus began the "Fall from Grace" -
that slippery slope leading away from a "State of One-ness".
To lose even a small portion (one link) of ones soul has the effect of
distorting any messages we receive, till eventually we lose the ability
to clearly know what is right and wrong.
(fyi - Soul Retrieval work will help restore these missing links)
As the way becomes less and less clear, we begin to lose trust in our
guiding compass - our spiritual connection to God - and we become less
secure in our selves and our place in the universe. And when the lower
"Inner Child Self" feels more and more disconnected, the fears and
insecurities take a life all their own in the form of an ever growing
"Ego Persona". The egos impulse for safety and survival compel us to
all sorts of behaviors we would not normally do, all in order to
reconnect us (albeit in a round about distorted way) if not to the
real, than to an illusion of the Higher Self generated by the Ego,
which has now become our Gods (our substitute spiritual parents).
More Information on the Soul
The Hawaiian Priests or "Kahunas" - "those who hold the Secrets of
the Soul" - teach that there are 3 parts of the Soul or 3 aspects
of the Divinity in One:
The High or Super-Conscious Self - our "Spiritual Parent" - dwells in
the higher dimensions of consciousness that exist above our heads. That
knowing part of us is connected to the Inner Child through the heart.
The Middle or Conscious Self - our "Ego Mind” - judges, makes
decisions, analyzes, conceptualizes and rationalizes. It is that
thinking part of us that speaks as our mind.
The Low or Sub-Conscious Self - our "Inner Child" that is the
incarnation/manifestation/extension of the High Self on this physical
earth plane. It is that emotional, feeling, sensing part of us
that makes us feel alive.
These 3 categories could also be generally interpreted according to the
Christian religion as “The Father, Son and Holy Ghost/Spirit”, or in
the Hindu religion as "Sat Chit Ananda"... translated as "Truth
The Heart “Feels” - the Soul “Knows”
happens, we close our Heart in reaction to
something to painful to “feel”. Fracturing of our soul diminishes
our ability to be “aware”. Not being aware we don't realize how closed
off we are. We continue to think this is how it is and so we never look
beyond our comfort zones and safe little boxes. The cycle of
limitation, fear and "no" continues.
The basic reason “why” a person gives up their heart and soul is 'pain"
and "awareness of pain". So to ask someone to be aware and feel again
(in other words, to "take up their cross") is a tall order. It’s no
wonder why so many people are in conflict about doing Soul Retrieval
work (or any healing work really)... one starts to feel and be aware
again – something the ego-mind is trying to prevent us from doing (all
in order to keep us "safe").
Within our heart there resides the “still small voice within” - the
"Divine Spark" - the “Consciousness of God”... always beckoning us to
do the “right thing”, to be in harmony with all life, to be at one with
our Soul. However, there is another part of us - the ego-mind – that
doesn’t want to hear any of that. It wants to maintain its dominance
and control, and it fights to keep the distances intact. We are
potentially, in this sense, our own worst enemy.
The conflict between these parts of us can be fierce. It may not be
apparent at first, but when you indicate an interest in healing work,
this ego-mind part of you starts to get worked up and tries to find
excuses and distractions... to take you off this track. It can become
quite insidious, and even enlist the aid of other beings who are
equally opposed to "The Light" (higher consciousness) and to "Love"
(feeling in your heart). Relief from this inner conflict and tension
occurs when you either succumb to your ego-mind and follow its bidding,
or do the healing work and move through to the other side of
resistance. The first may seem to be the easy way, but your ego-mind
will still be running the show of your life (and you will still remain
unaware, fearful and dead inside). On the other hand, doing the healing
work might not be easy, at first, but the more you do the more you will
wake up and feel... empowered, free and alive ! And this is what life
is really about.
People ask me all the time...
“Why do I need to work with you when I can heal myself?”
Yes, there are a few things you can do to heal yourself, but Soul
is not one of them.
Beyond is the door that opens up into "The Kingdom of Heaven". You
stare through the keyhole, but realize too late... you have given up
lost the "Key" (the connection to your Higher Self). Without that you
are not able to open the door, enter and heal. If you had that Key,
would already be there (a long long time ago) and not need me.
Spirit is like a jar filled with cookies. It is sitting very high up on
a shelf, perhaps out of sight. Maybe you don't even know there is a
cookie jar (having never seen it) and you are a child wondering where
the sweets are. You could go wandering all over the house and never
discover it, or if you are
not too proud (or scared) you could ask some one(who is
taller and bigger than you for help. And if the jar is locked or the
lid is screwed on tight, this big person could open it up. Then you
could reach in and get the goodies... yum yum!
