"When we talk about soul here, we are really talking about light. In returning the soul parts and lost vitality we are really returning light." Sandra Ingerman
It is believed that whenever we suffer an emotional or physical trauma a part of our soul flees the body in order to survive the experience. The definition of soul that is being referenced here is our soul essence, life force, the part of our vitality that keeps us alive and thriving.
Any event that causes shock could cause soul loss. And what might cause soul loss in one person might not cause soul loss in another.
Although soul loss is a survival mechanism the problem from a shamanic point of view is that the soul part that left usually does not come back on its own. The soul might be lost, or stolen by another person, or doesn’t know the trauma has passed and it is safe to return.
It has always been the role of the shaman to go into an altered state of consciousness and track down where the soul fled to in the alternate realities and return it to the body of the client.
There are many common symptoms of soul loss. Some of the more common ones would be dissociation where a person does not feel fully in his or her body and alive and fully engaged in life. Other symptoms include chronic depression, suicidal tendencies, post traumatic stress syndrome, immune deficiency problems, and grief that just does not heal. Addictions are also a sign of soul loss as we seek external sources to fill up the empty spaces inside of us whether through substances, food, relationships, work, or buying material objects.
Anytime someone says I have never been the same since a certain event and they don’t mean this in a good way soul loss has probably occurred.
It is interesting to note that as soul loss was so understood in shamanic cultures people who suffered traumas were given a soul retrieval within three days after a trauma occurred.
Today as we have not been practicing soul retrieval modern day practitioners are going back ten, twenty, thirty, or forty years or even more looking for lost soul parts.
Also in a shamanic culture the individuals knew what was out of balance in their lives that might have caused an illness or issue to occur.
In our culture we are unaware of what is out of spiritual harmony that is creating illness. And because often our soul loss happened so young we are unaware of the unconscious patterns we are living out due to our first experience of soul loss. We are always trying to retrieve our soul. And how we do this is by repeating the same trauma over and over again. The names might change of the people involved in our life story, but the story is often the same.
The effects of having a soul retrieval vary person to person. Some people feel that they are more grounded in their body and feel more solid. Some people feel lighter and a joyful way of being returns to them. For some memories of the past traumas might be triggered bringing up a variety of feelings that must be worked through. And for some people the effects are too subtle to notice a change until further work to integrate the soul is done.
As people feel more present in their bodies and in the world they become more conscious of behavior that might be out of balance and disharmonious. When we are numb we might be aware that things in the world are not right but we can easily distract ourselves from feeling a need to change. When we are fully “inspirited” there is no place to retreat to and we are more inspired to change our lives.
You can receive the benefits of shamanic healing no matter where you live. Both distant and in-person shamanic healing are available and are equally effective, because shamanic healing is performed in the spirit realm.
In the world of energy, there is no such thing as time or space. Long distant healing, also known as remote healing, or absent healing effects are now being proven by science with Quantum Physics discoveries that energy is not restricted to any time or location.

Ritual is a universal language that gives substance and meaning to our lives. Ritual is the key that turns the lock and opens the mind and heart and shifts us from the unconsciousness back into consciousness. Rituals can bring us comfort that connects us to the Divine, regardless of our religion or spiritual tradition.
Raising the vibrational frequency of your home, office and land is vitally important in these fast changing times. Having the support, nourishment and vitality of the space you live and work enhances every aspect of your life.
"All life is made of light. We are all light. Everything is light. In remembering this we can transmute everything in our outer environment and what we take in to pure healing light. All spiritual traditions teach that everything manifests on a spiritual level before manifesting on the physical." Sandra Ingerman
The "Psychopomp" according to the Oxford Dictionary is "a conductor of souls to the place of the dead".
A psychopomp is a guide, whose primary function is to escort souls to the afterlife, but they can also serve as a guide through the various transitions of life and the planet. The term originates from the Greek words pompos (conductor or guide) and psyche (breath, life, soul, or mind).
Stories of psychopomps are widespread throughout the mythological tales, religious texts, sacred narratives, and real-life stories of people around the world.
We can transform our culture and reshape our relationship with death, especially if we are able to envision a society that is comfortable with the end-of-life transition, and where each individual can instead celebrate a life well lived as they are supported on their final journey.
