Soul retrieval is a powerful Shamanic practice. When used effectively it allows for healing at a deep, basic, primal, elemental level.
Soul retrieval is the process of being guided by spirit into the non-ordinary reality, seeking and locating the missing part of one’s soul; communicating, encouraging and retrieving the missing part; bringing it together and rejoining it with the whole.

When we have suffered any form of trauma in this life or in past lives our soul fractures. A deep wound within the soul bears testament to this pain.
The fractured part of the soul flees to a place of safety within the spiritual realm.
The Shaman in a meditative trance, travels with the consent of the person who wishes to reclaim this piece of their soul, into the non-dimensional reality to retrieve the missing fragment.
When the part of the soul returns, that has been split from the whole. It re-enters and joins at the moment the trauma occurred, reconnecting to the pain that existed when it fractured.
Now the healing can take place.
It is best you are guided through this process. However, soul retrieval can occur during a Shamanic journey.
