Soul Retrieval

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 into the session. 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.

Reaction to Trauma
A souls typical reaction to a traumatic experience is to create distance or separation from it, even if that means giving up the bits and pieces of light, peace, power, consciousness, joy, memories, love... 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 that affect the souls experience of the present and if not healed, perpetuate far into the future.

Traumatic Experiences

A few examples of trauma that can cause the soul to separate out are:
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
an absence of support, nurturance, companionship or love
loneliness,  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, of just going through the motions
Feeling hopeless, apathetic and indifferent, like a spark is missing
Feeling disconnected from life, as if you are living in a dream
Unable to focus or make decisions, feeling directionless
Having low self esteem, lacking confidence
Addictions to people and or substances
Compulsive behaviours and or thoughts
An inability to move on or recover from an issue or past event
Lingering 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 line". 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 Ransom
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). Your energies, even segments of your consciousness may then be incorporated into that being, only to be used and abused (this may be similar to what psychologists today 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....
Etheric DNA restoration and rewiring occurs during this time, as your soul parts are reintegrated back into the matrix of its original pattern.

During a Soul Retrieval, Spirit travels to where those bits and pieces of your Soul are lodged (be it in an entity, time or space), and proceeds to free them up so they may be returned and reintegrated into your one being.

Escapists and Opportunists
It is in the nature of the universe to abhor a vacume (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 an escape to spaces outside their own self. By abandoning our own personal spaces, whoever or whatever moves in to take our 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 Needed?
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 seriously scattered throughout time and space.

- How much stuff do you hold?
some people hold a little here and there... 
while others hold tons (lifetimes worth).

- How attached are you to your stuff?
if you are ready to let go, the healing work is very easy and fast.
if you are very attached, the healing work will be hard and slow.

Either way, continue to do the healing work and you will get yourself 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 Work 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 days or weeks 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 be changed.

The results of the Soul Retrieval work is like switching reception on a TV from an antenna to satellite - surfing along with your 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 healings) typically affect levels that are often so far removed from ones physical spatial awareness. This does not discount the importance of this healing - it still fills a very important role in completing your being. Like a jig saw puzzle or chemical formula... sometimes the addition of one piece or ingredient makes all the difference.

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".

The present Soul is likened to a "Grand Palace" filled with treasures.. but its absence is like looking through windows and seeing empty rooms.

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 (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... a mystery worth exploring.

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. It is that knowing part of us... 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.

The Low or Sub-Conscious Self - our "Inner Child" that is the incarnation/manifestation/extension of the High Self on this physical earth plain. It is that emotional, feeling, sensing part of us.

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 Consciousness Bliss".

This healing work addresses all these areas.

The ego-mind wants what it wants, but not necessarily what is best.

If you are in the habit of exclusively listening to your ego-mind (which says things like "my will be done"), you may find it difficult to consciously connect with your Higher Soul Self (the ultimate authority figure) which often tells our human self things that it (and the ego-mind) just does not want to hear... least of all do (like "Not my will but Gods will be done").

 If you are in rebellion and resistant to the authority of your Higher Soul Self, your ego-mind is going to do everything it can to help you shut that connection down and off. Unfortunately, if at a later date you have a change of heart, The connection and relationship between your various selves will have been damaged (and severed) so badly, that you will not easily be able to (on your own accord) heal them. What's more, chances are that you would have installed so many layers of resistances (between you and your Soul Self) in the form of energetic blocks, walls, and distortions... all preventing you from accessing powers of your own Higher Soul Self that could have helped you do so. In this case, it would be wise to receive healing help from outside the limitations you yourself have placed around and in you.

The human self often has such a severe mistrust of its own Soul Self, that it is not willing or is “resistant” to make such a connection. Here it is common to see many energetic and psychic blocks, walls, distortions, and interference patterns created and installed between the human and its Soul Self. These “resistances” can be felt as heat, irritation, anger, fear, judgment, negative thoughts, denial, confusion, obstinacy... and so many more.
Speaking of "resistance", how do you feel with what I have said so far?
Are you now or have you in the past felt any of these things?
Of course you have... we all have... it’s part of the human condition. To some degree or another, we all are in resistance to change. Life tends to bring these things up in us so that we are forced to experience them - this is how we spiritually evolve and ascend from out of the density and limitation of our lives. This is one reason why many of us came here to this planet in the first place - to “Evolve” and “Ascend”.

When you are feeling resistance, try to be aware of and accept it: if you try to avoid and run from that which brings these feelings up in you, you will be slowing or stopping your healing process. If you accept these feelings as an opportunity, they will bring you many gifts.

”Do not resist evil"
When you do not have any "resistances" (can you imagine - life without filters?) the "Truth" will come to you clearly and directly and you will experience "Life" abundantly and deeply.

The Heart “Feels” - the Soul “Knows”.
We close our Heart in reaction to something so painful to “feel”.
Fracturing out our soul diminishes our ability to be “aware”.

The basic reason “why” a person gives up their heart and soul is 'pain" and "awareness of pain". So to ask someone to take up their “Cross” - to be aware and feel again - is a tall order. It’s no wonder why so many people are in conflict about doing this 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 is fighting 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). Resolution occurs when you either succumb to your ego-mind and follow its bidding, or move through its resistances and do the healing work. 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 and be numbed out). If you do the healing work, it's not going to be easy, but you will start to live again - fully aware and feeling.

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, Knowledge and Guidance...  but until the time you get this healing, your human self will compensate.

If you find yourself missing or not in full contact 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 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 way we can find it.

If you find that your Soul Self is way off in the distance (doing whatever)... absent and far removed from your space, your lower self may call in other spirit beings to step in to take their place (sort of like spiritual step parents). These other beings may give you some spiritual guidance, but this guidance - since it is not coming from your own being - may not necessarily be in full accordance with your own souls agenda or highest truth. It is not that these beings are going to be a bad influence on you (though they might), but they are never going to be a perfect substitute for your own Soul Self – and they will never be able to channel to you your own authentic voice, vibration, energy, or consciousness.

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 like experiencing a whole new dimension of completeness. And this is actually a much more miraculous (and more difficult) thing to accomplish – so much more important than making you a channel for some other spirit entity (no matter how great).

The goal of all spiritual healing is not to make you into someone else - it’s to make you more you - that you may be fully present and complete on all levels in this one body. That's the "Big Plan".

Throughout all our past lives existing on this (or another) planet and/or dimension... we have had to compromise (as in to relinquish, trade, or outright sell) our souls integrity (what we feel in our heart is right and true) to those more powerful beings or forces who have been (or still are) in controlling positions over our lives.
Since it is human nature to follow the examples shown us (good or bad) learning and doing what we know (even if distorted) we tend to perpetuate dysfunction by becoming co-conspirators in similar behavior, further teaching and enlisting others in our vicious games, as the cycle of victim and perpetrator continues....

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 hear and determine what is right and wrong, and the moral ground of knowing what is up and down....

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") as the egos impulse for safety and survival compel us to all sorts of behaviors we would not normally do, in order to reconnect us (albeit in a round about and 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).

Since we have fallen so far from such elevated heights, our climb back up to One-ness will require an ongoing commitment of time and energy. All the allies we can enlist will make our journey easier and quicker.

Self Empowerment
People talk all the time to me about doing the healing on their selves.
“Why do I need to work with you when I can heal myself?” they say.
Yes, there are a few areas that you can do some healing on yourself, but this is probably not one of them.

Beyond is the door that opens up into the Kingdom.
You may stare all you want through the keyhole
but long ago you had given up the key (the connection to your higher self).

And without that you will not be able to open the door, enter and heal.
If you had that, you would already be there and not need me.

Spirit is like a cookie jar filled with goodies. 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 sweeties are. You could go wandering all over the house and never discover it, and your own parents are no where to be found. If you are not too proud (or scared) you could ask some other person (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!
